“I don’t fear the shout of the tyrant, but the hush of the innocents”.

Certain time I heard the statement above and I agree with it. Paul conveyed the same idea:

• “Some indeed even preach Christ because of envy and strife, and some also of good will. Those, indeed, preach Christ out of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds. But these others preach in love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel. What then? Nevertheless, in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached. And I rejoice in this. Yet, also I will rejoice. For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,” (Phil 1:15-19).

Although heresies and blasphemies are horrible, the worst is when the outspoken don’t reprove darkness’ works:

• “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Eph 5:11).
• “For there must also be heresies among you, that the approved ones may be revealed among you.” (1Co 11:19).

The adversities are opportunities that Jesus grant us to manifest His presence to this world. We don’t have any reason to forgo the truth or get shy when it comes to stick up for it. On the contrary: it is those who are in murkiness that has to be ashamed of divulge their turpitude.

Furthermore, as Paul said, through our prayer and the supply of the Holy Spirit we can quash all heresies and manifest the truth (leastwise for those who wish for it – 1Timothy 3:15). The weapons of the spirit are outright superior in power than darkness’ weapons. Nonetheless, while the fiendish people stay working their malice restless, the Creator’s people lose time with picayune things (see Luke 21:34,35). This is the reason for so many mess, mayhem and mishaps in our society.

I know that the wicked tongue can be catastrophic (James 3:6):

• “By the blessing of the upright the city is lifted up, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.” (Proverbs 11:11).
• “Cast out the scorner, and fighting shall go out; yes, quarrels and shame shall cease.” (Pro 22:10).

Notwithstanding, if we, staunchly, stick to Jesus and His word, and manifest His gospel with our life in every situation, never Jesus’ truth will vanish (Psalms 117:2).

So, don’t matter the kerfuffles that people make around us. Have a good week don’t encumbering the Holy Spirit to use you. If you let His goodness and mercy (which are following you) to have a place in your life, certainly your hope won’t be thwarted (Proverbs 23:18).
