“Keep Christ Quiet”

One of Satan’s Goals/Lies is to “Keep Christ Quiet”

“Keep Christ Quiet” (Matthew 10:32-33, NKJV; Matthew 10:32, NLT, MSG, CEV)

  • We need Jesus confessing us before our Father in Heaven.
  • We pray God’s promises to Him –Jesus will bring them to His Father God.
  • When Jesus does so our prayers become powerful, practical, and purposeful.

God’s Goal is to “Keep us Talking” (Matthew 6:8-13, NKJV)

  • Learn to ask the right way.
  • Learn that Jesus will not confess/profess our prayers to the Father, if we will not confess Him before men.
  • Satan knows if we “Keep Christ Quiet” it will keep Him quite before the Father on our behalf.
  • “Keeping Christ Quiet” keeps the power of prayer limited.
  • God called us to be producers (advancing God’s Kingdom on earth) not
  • We can’t advance God’s Kingdom if we “Keep Christ Quiet”. (Matthew 11:12, NIV).
  • We need to forgive others because we need forgiveness—God wants to give us victory over temptations.
  • “Keeping God Quite” limits the power of God in our life and the lives of those around us. (Romans 1:16, NKJV; Psalm 40:9-10, NCV; Psalm 71:15-16, NCV; 2 Timothy 1:8, NCV)

Insights to remember:

  • Satan’s goal is to “Keep Christ Quiet”, the truth is God Calls Us, He Equips Us, and Sends Us. (Luke 10:17, TLB; Acts 3:6, NKJV, Acts 5:40, NKJV)
  • God’s goal is to keep us talking about Jesus. (Matthew 10:32-33, NKJV; Acts 2:33-34, NKJV; Romans 8:26-28, NKJV)
  • How can we talk about Christ?
    • Get out your app.
    • Invite to church.
    • Talk about what is happening at Journey Church.
    • Talk about what Jesus has done in your life.
    • What do you thing about Spiritual things?
