The “quiet” in that verse is talking about on the inside. “Quiet” is no conflict. The “quiet” is no conversations are going on just creativity. “Quiet” is satan never gives up, but his voice is totally tuned out. He knows who he can’t mess with:
“And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land” (Job 1:8-10)
Whole is the “hedge.” “Quiet” is doing what God tells us to do without question. I’m not saying we should not question God, but it is not about the questioning but about the surrendering. God wants to know we are thinking, which questioning shows Him. The “quiet” is Peace.
The “commanded you” is I have “quiet” because I am just doing what God told me to do. The “study” is that kind of “quiet” only comes from the Word of God being in us. “In us” and head knowledge are two different things.
My daily Bible reading gave me another word for “quiet,” which is Rest:
“So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (II Thessalonians 1:4-12)
This is an Excerpt from the Preface of “Heart Of The Matter:”
The next step after Full Potential is Maximum Capacity. Maximum Capacity is all that can be contained in the Spirit, Mind and Body. Maximum Capacity is where the following Scriptures take place:
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:26)
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” (Psalm 23:5)
“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:” (Colossians 1:26)
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19)
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19)
Maximum Capacity is what makes us lights in the world:
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:13-16)
Unfortunately Christianity has lost its “savour.” Division is what made it lose it. It “savour” will only come back with Unity, which is the Purpose of “Christianity.” (Posted at this Website)
I am always hearing pastors bragging about what they are doing is helping so much, but the world keeps getting worse and worse. That means too many pastors today think too highly of themselves. I would think “helping so much” would be working on their own people. Church folk can be the worse folk in the world.
In my “Pact With The Devil” Blog I stated what I live by. “Honestly” is humbly I do what I do because I love doing it because I know only people can change themselves. If something I say inspires someone to change themselves that is wonderful too.
God changes people came from satan. When God wants something done He wants it done now period. He will use a donkey or whatever He has to use to accomplish His Purpose. If God only wants that person He will just create a situation to help them to change their mind. Actually most of the time God does not have to create situations because we create our own situations. He uses them too. As we can see with me God has no problem with just using someone else: (“Love Affair” – Download at this Website)
“But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord. And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.” (Jonah 2:9-10)
“Rest” comes from knowing anything someone does to us “shall be punished with everlasting destruction.” That is why Americans of darker pigment need to let racism be what it is. That is why we must be the bigger person as I said in my “Totally Innocent!!!” Blog. I also said in that Blog “God honors people that are the bigger person:”
“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” (Hebrews 4:9-11)
The “labour” is “God’s Process.” (“In Search Of My Soul Mate” – Download at this Website) There are two things I want, which is I truly want people to make The Rapture and I truly do not want people to go to Hell. Hell is not from God, but from a decision we made. ALL people are saved. I do not even use “saved” anymore. I only use “called.”
Saved just means we will be alive for all Eternity. Three questions came from all of this. The first question is, “Will people be alive in Hell or Kingdom of Heaven?” (“The Re-Birth Of Christianity” and “Hell” – Posted at this Website) The second question is “Are Americans of lighter pigment willing to spend Eternity in Hell for the color of someone’s skin?” The third question is, “Is God making men Head of His Church that awful?” God always keeps things very simple.
People need to stop praying for God to change people and start being examples. “Conversation” is not talking, but actions. Be the change you want to see in that person as I said in that Blog:
“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;” (I Peter 3:1)
My daily Bible reading today confirmed this Blog:
“But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” (II Thessalonians 2:13-17)
IT IS TIME FOR CHRISTIANITY TO BE A LIGHT IN THE WORLD FOR THIS DYING WORLD.
