Silence is an offense to God

Silence is an offense to God

Silence is an offence to God, tolerance is sin!

Let me explain,

I while back, I was driving in my car, hearing a scripture in my spirit…

Friendship with the world is emnity with God.

James 4:4

I was just leaving my friends house, we had a good time, our kids had a good time, we played at the park, talked, enjoyed each others company.

Lord, I don't party, I don't drink, I don't do what I used to do" how is me hanging out with a friend, a bad thing?

- Me

But did you gossip? Did you stand by when someone was falsely accused, did you say anything, or did you just watch?

I didn’t want to cause trouble! I didnt participate, I was just listening…

I then saw an image, a vision of my friend, in a party atmosphere, dancing, holding a red cup, and to my surprise, I saw myself next to her, helping her drink her cup!

"Lord, I don't do that! Why am I at the party?"

- Me

A spiritual revelation came forth

The party atmosphere represents the world, its customs, traditions it’s values. Especially in these days, where things are backward, and good is evil. 

The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life. 

Believers on the other hand, have standards, and morals to abide by. Unbelievers, live like there is no tomorrow, just think about the phrase, may be an older fraze, “YOLO” You only live once”! Let’s party, have a good time, we only have one life to live. Don’t be so uptight, live a little, party, drink and be merry. 

The fact that I was there, tells me that I am the participant in my friends life, which is true! We inter-connect and forge a friendship, and with time, make lasting memories. 

It surprised me to see that I was the accomplice in this picture. I was helping her drink poison. When she was gossiping, and slandering, she was slowly killing her spirit man. Because I didn’t say anything, caused her to think I was OK with it, while I was just silent.

When your friend is gossiping, do you just stand by, agreeing, helping her, drink the poison? OR when the couple is arguing, and you are in the midst, simply standing by, are you not an accomplice, to their crime? This relationship was toxic for me, and I knew it. I listened, I nodded, I agreed, when certain conversations would arise. I didn’t speak my truth, nor did I interviened.

Lord, forgive me, and change my ways!

- Me

They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.

1 John 4:5

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

2 Corinthians 6:14

When your friend is gossiping, do you just stand by, agreeing, helping her, drink the poison? OR when the couple is arguing, and you are in the midst, simply standing by, are you not an accomplice, to their crime? This relationship was toxic for me, and I knew it. I listened, I nodded, I agreed, when certain conversations would arise. I didn’t speak my truth, nor did I interviened.

DO NOT CONFORM!

To conform is to

– to act in accordance or harmony; comply (usually followed by to):to conform to rules.
– to act in accord with the prevailing standards, attitudes, practices, etc., of society or a group
– to be or become similar in form, nature, or character ( via Dictionary.com; I like to define words, it’s a hobby of mine)

Deep down inside I knew that, but also deep down inside I did not want to accept this truth!

I liked the company of people who were like the world. You could lie a little bit, you can gossip a little, and laugh a little, and the world will laugh with you, Christians are so uptight, and religious, and have to make a spiritual point, EVERYTIME! 

Immediately, while still holding my wheel, I yelled out, and my kids probably thought I was nuts…

Lord I need you! I need you to come into my situatipn, I made a mess, please help me.

- Me

And so it began. When I came around my friend, ans she was gossiping id change the topic, or speak my truth, when her daughter was dancing to secular music, I pulledy children out of the environment and asked her to switch the channel.

I change up on her, and she

didn’t like it.

Sis, you’re different, I want the old you back.

The one that was silent? The one that agreed with slandering other people? The one who stood by when seeds of rebellion was sowed into my children’s ground?

I’m sorry, I am on a different Journey, to a better me, and I’m not going back to the old me. This is ME! THE ME that I’ve silenced for so long, because I didn’t want to argue, or cause any kind of drama. The me that normally speaks up, when the rest sit down.

I’m going to be ME, and if you can’t accept that, then we cannot continue this friendship!

GOD is not pleased when we make up excuses, so we can sin. God is not tolerant of our actions, when we sit down, instead of speaking up. When our friends gossip, or slander others, why are we silent?

My uncle who was on the lookout when his “friends” robbed, and schemed, was CONVICTED with the SAME crime! He was just on the lookout, yet he was convicted as a criminal, and DIED in prison! 

Do you see my point?

Friendship with the world is Enmity With God, and that’s that! I don’t want to be an accomplice when I know flesh is weak.
