God Silences Talk Radio
rarely listen to talk radio or talk TV shows.
They are way too outrageous and obnoxious for me. There
are certain so-called news and information shows I don’t watch either
because they are more commentary than news.
People yell and scream at each other on these programs and then
they wonder why their position is rejected.
All this nonsense will come to an end some day.
Can you imagine a world without talk radio and talk TV?
sure we’ve all stood for a moment of silence on special days honouring
our fallen soldiers. We’ve
stood for a moment of silence on those occasions when our loved-ones
have passed away. So we know
what it means to stand in reverent silence.
a day coming when there will be a moment of silence that has never been
experienced by anyone in
human history. It won’t
matter where you live, all of mankind will experience this silence in
one moment of time. All
creation might well experience this moment of silence as well.
Birds might well stop chirping, dogs stop barking, and winds stop
2:13 says, “be still before the Lord, all mankind, because He has
roused Himself from His holy dwelling.”
This stillness occurs at the end of time on earth as we know it.
The apostle Paul speaks of a day when every human will fall on
their knees before the Lord Jesus and confess that He is Lord of all
there is (Philippians 2:10 - 11). It
might well be that after we fall to our knees, and before we confess
with our lips, we will experience this reverent silence.
Every individual on this planet, those alive, and those who will
rise from their graves, will be speechless before the God and Father of
our Lord Jesus Christ. Humiliation
and insignificance will grip our hearts as we’ve never known it.
It will leave us speechless as we lie prostrate upon the ground
before an all-powerful God. We’ll
be so overcome with His presence that our minds will be unable to
produce a thought that our lips can speak.
you even begin to imagine that day?
I don’t think so. Even
the talk radio and talk TV hosts will finally meet their match.
For once in their lives they will be at a complete loss for
that day, some people will fall in reverent fear and thankfulness for
God’s grace, while others will fall before God in devastating fear
because they failed to accept His grace. I know I’ll be speechless,
and maybe the first words I’ll speak after this silence and after
confessing His Lordship is “thank you, thank you, thank you Lord Jesus.”
