~ A Time To Not Be Quiet ~
Principle ~ “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven … A time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7b).
A Time To Preach (what God has done and can do) ~ “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching” (2 Timothy 4:2).
A Time To Speak Up (call upon God) ~ “Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’” (Luke 18:39).
A Time To Witness (what God has done for you) ~ “So they again called the man who was blind, and said to him, ‘Give God the glory! We know that this Man [Jesus Christ] is a sinner.’ He answered and said, ‘Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see’” (John 9:24-25).
A Time To Defend (the truth of the Word of God) ~ “And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. ‘And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.’ But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil” (1 Peter 3:13-17).
Summary ~ Sometimes it is wrong to be silent.
