Why silence?

31 Jesus went down to the city of Capernaum in Galilee and taught the people each Sabbath. 32 They were amazed by his teaching because he delivered his message with authority. 33 A man in the synagogue had the spirit of an unclean demon. He screamed, 34 “Hey! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are. You are the holy one from God.” 35 “Silence!” Jesus said, speaking harshly to the demon. “Come out of him!” The demon threw the man down before them, then came out of him without harming him. 36 They were all shaken and said to each other, “What kind of word is this, that he can command unclean spirits with authority and power, and they leave?” 37 Reports about him spread everywhere in the surrounding region. (Luke 4:31-37, CEB)

Jesus told his mother in John that it was not time yet when she asked him to turn water into wine and correct the problem there.

Jesus also told his disciples not to tell anyone what they had seen.

And most every time Jesus expels a demon he tells it to be silent.

Now I know there truly is a time and a place for everything, but if God was in your midst wouldn’t you want to know?

Or maybe Jesus knew that us knowing would be something we couldn’t handle at that point.

But know that Jesus came to set us free from everything that binds us and keeps us from God. He came to restore us to relationships that feed our souls.

Love People. Love God.
