The Mighty One, God the LORD,
Has spoken and called the earth
From the rising of the sun to its going down.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God will shine forth.
Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent;
A fire shall devour before Him,
And it shall be very tempestuous all around Him.
I. When God Speaks…
A. Things begin to happen.
1. Natural laws begin and cease.
2. By His word all things were created (Psalm 50:9-13).
3. The bush burned, sea parted, Jordan stopped, Sun stood still.
4. Man was created.
II. When God Keeps Silent (Psalm 50:16-21).
A. When one member of the Godhead speaks the others remain silent.
1. God spoke—Christ spoke (Hebrews 1:1,2).
2. Holy Spirit spoke (John 16:8-14) —Now He speaks through Scripture (Hebrews 4:12; Ephesians 6:17).
III. When God Remains Silent… It doesn’t necessarily mean approval.
A. Men sin (Psalm 50:14-15; Hebrews 10:23; Psalm 50:21; 50:17-20; Matthew 18:15-20).
IV. His Silence Indicates…
A. His infinite wisdom.
B. The immutability of His word.
C. We need to keep silent where He has not spoken (I Sam. 15:17-23; 28:15).
D. He is patient (Isaiah 53:7; II Peter 3:9).
One day the Lord will not keep silent
(Psalm 50:3-8; 21-22).
Are you ready for such a day?
