How To Get God To Be Quiet
This is the covenant that I will make with them. After those days (the first covenant days, which came to an end at Jesus’ death), says the Lord: I will put My laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them, He then says, 17 And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more. 18 Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin. (Italics mine.)
That’s staggering. That’s amazing.
No more sacrificing animals for the Jews, and no need for the believing Gentiles (everybody else) to plead or to speak of their sins. They’re gone.
So here’s how to get God to be quiet: Try having a chat about your sins with Him who remembers them no more.
If you’ve been throwing a lot of words at God but not hearing anything in return, watch your language. Is your attempt at conversation based upon what you’ve done, or is it based upon what He has done?
