Do you long for being heard? Hear Jesus’ voice. Otherwise, it’s better to shut up (Part 2).

    Do you long for being heard? Hear Jesus’ voice. Otherwise, it’s better to shut up (Part 2).

    We can see an example of this here:

    • Amo 8:1-3 -> “This is what the Lord GOD showed me: behold, a basket of summer fruit. And he said, “Amos, what do you see?” And I said, “A basket of summer fruit.” Then the LORD said to me, “The end has come upon my people Israel; I will never again pass by them. The songs of the temple shall become wailings in that day,” declares the Lord GOD. “So many dead bodies!” “They are thrown everywhere!” “Silence!” ”.

    As the Creator promised not to pass amidst Israel, the outcome of this would be silence. At these moments:

    • Pro 17:28 -> “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.”.

    You can think: “even in these moments we can pray”. Well, when the Creator gives His sentence, there is nothing more to be done. Hence He said:

    • Isa 55:6 -> “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;”.

    Enjoy while the door of the grace is opened. When it closes, it is useless to do something. Recollect the deluge in Genesis 6 and 7 or Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19. While Noah was constructing the arc or Lot was inside Sodom and Gomorrah, they could repent and convert. After this, finished!

    • Luk 17:26-30 -> “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

    So, have a good day in Jesus’ will and, if there is something that needs to be fixed between you and Jesus, the time to fix it is now!!! Tomorrow can be too late.
