There are times when silence can speak louder than words. Especially in relation to conflict with other believers. However, silence is not an effective weapon for spiritual warfare.
Church, this is not the time to think or imagine prayers, now is the time to pray prayers with your voice. The enemy is using his power of intimidation to quiet the church and we must not be silent.
Anytime the name of Jesus is proclaimed over situations of this world, there will be a comeback. The morals of this world are not the same as the commandments and attributes of God. If conflict arises because Jesus’ name is being lifted high let the conflict arise.
Christians are not subordinates.
Christians are not weak.
Christians are not easily intimidated.
Christians are strong and courageous.
Christians are willing to persecuted for the name of Jesus Christ.
Christians are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Lord is separating the wheat from the tare openly. Those who choose to remain silent when it comes to the truth of the gospel will be denied before God. Those who choose to open their mouth and proclaim the truth will be persecuted for righteousness sake, but theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction,” 2 Peter 2:1.
“But whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is,” Matthew 10:33.
“Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent,” Proverbs 17:28.
