“May our God come and not keep silence; Fire devours before Him, and it is very tempestuous around Him.” (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
“May our God come and not keep silence (charash: cease, concealed, be speechless); Fire ('esh: burning, flaming, supernatural fire) devours ('akal: burns up, consumes) before Him, and it is very tempestuous (sa`ar: whirlwind, storm) around Him.”
May our God come and not conceal Himself, speechless; Supernatural fire consumes before Him and a whirlwind surrounds Him.
It is imperative that we have a well-balanced, biblical view of God. Many only desire to speak of His abounding love and grace. Others desire to call down fire and brimstone, desiring Him to destroy all evil that is upon the earth. What we must remember is that the Word paints a vivid, extremely diverse picture of the LORD. He is multi-faceted beyond our comprehension! Lately, I have felt an increased urgency to ask the LORD to make Himself known in this hour. Above the clamor of this world, beyond the messes of men, even above our best efforts on His behalf, may He rend the heavens and make Himself known! Would you join me today to cry out as the Psalmist did? May our God not keep silent!
