Why Isn’t God Speaking?

October 7, 2017

Teacher: Charles Stanley

Job 34:29

“The Bible speaks of times when God chose to be silent—to an individual or to humanity as a whole. David cried out to Him but discerned no answer (Psalm 22:2). Then there was Job, who must have felt the Lord had abandoned him. And during the gap between the Old and New Testaments, God had no prophet for 400 years.

We don’t always hear from the Lord when we expect to. Sometimes we’re so caught up in the world and our own interests that we simply can’t detect His voice over all the noise. There are also other reasons for His silence—He may be choosing to remain quiet because …

He wants our attention. We can’t expect God to answer simply because we’ve summoned Him. Perhaps He is reminding us that He is in charge.

There is unconfessed sin in our life. When we’re willing to deal with our sin, God is ready to talk to us. To continue living in sin, however, communicates that we’re not interested in His will for us.

We’re not ready. If we’re doing our own thing and are unwilling to walk in obedience, God might be waiting for us to make up our mind to follow Him.

He’s teaching us to trust Him. If we’re motivated to love God only when there’s indication that He’s listening, our relationship with Him is based on feeling rather than faith.

He’s teaching us to distinguish His voice from others. When God speaks softly, we listen more closely and eventually recognize His voice better.

Whatever the situation, we can be certain of one thing: God’s quietness is always for our good.”

Understanding Angels! A Bible Perspective to the Reality of Angels! Part 1

October 4, 2017

This month I’m studying about angels, and came across this very informative series with quoted scripture.

The Agapegeek Blog

(Ver 1.0)  People generally do not believe in things that they have never seen or that they have any proof that they exist.  However, the Bible says a lot about these spiritual beings we call angels and it informs us that they definitely are real and that they exist.  The rest of this lesson will cover things found in the Bible about angels that you should know.  Who are they, what are they, where did they come from, when did they come into existence, what is their purpose and whatever else I can find to discuss about them.  I personally know people who claim to have seen angels and their descriptions of these creatures are not like the fat little baby angels you see in many books.  These creatures are generally very strong, large and tall.  Their strength is so much greater than the strongest man on the earth that…
