Knowing WHEN to speak out is a quality―or byproduct―of wisdom. It is a secondary, and sometimes unexpected consequence.
I have a friend whom I have known for over 50 years. He and his wife and children are wonderful Christians. My friend had never been to church as a young boy. We attended the same public schools for 12 years. One day, in the 8th grade, the teacher was expounding about the so-called marvels of evolution. I stood up and said, “The Bible says that God made man.” About 15 years later, my friend told me he had never forgotten what I said that day in the 8th grade, and it was instrumental in him becoming a Christian.
The Bible teaches us that “the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.”
This passage has reference to the human spirit. The Greek word for “subject” here used is the word “hupotasso” and means “to subordinate; be under obedience, or submit oneself to.” However, the Holy Spirit is NOT subject to the prophets: neither to an inspired speaker, nor to one who is foretelling.
When I was 11 years of age, I prophesied TWO things (at the same time) to a neighbor and a relative in my parents' house. I prophesied, 1. “Men will travel to the moon” … AND … 2. “When I grow up I am going to work for God.” Travel to the moon had neither been postulated―nor thought of―at that time. However, the latter prophecy was probably more of a long shot to those who knew me!
The Holy Spirit may come upon you at times and cause you to speak out boldly!
Proverbs 28:1 tells us, “The wicked flee when no man pursues; but the righteous are bold as a lion.”
The Hebrew word here used for “bold” is “batach” and means figuratively “to trust, be confident, be bold ... and sometimes ... be careless.”
“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines, and plagues in various places. There will be terrors and great signs from heaven.
It will turn out as a testimony for you.
Be ready for the Holy Spirit to make you bold in these days before the reappearing of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) to Planet Earth.
“And the Spirit of the LORD will come mightily on you, and you shall prophesy with them, and shall be turned into another man (or, person).” ‒ 1 Samuel 10:6.
The Hebrew word used in the above passage for “come” is the word “tsalach” and means both literally and figuratively “to push forward, to break out, to be profitable: to make prosperous.”
