It went on for 400 years. God was silent.
In 1407 BC, God had promised to send a prophet like Moses. For the next 1000 years, God sent prophets to his people, prophets who could tell people what God was thinking… about them and about the events in the world.
But after the prophet Malachi, God fell silent.
And God’s people waited.
Until “the Word became flesh and lived for a while among us” (John 1:14).
Today, God may seem silent to you. Events are happening in your life that make you wonder how God feels about you. You may wish that God would just come and talk with you and explain things to you.
In this weekend’s messages, we will explore the meaning of John 1:1-14 and especially why the Apostle John would call Jesus “the Word.” Jesus is how God broke the silence. And as we consider how the Word broke God’s silence at the time of Mary and Joseph, I pray that we can hear the Word break through the silence that we may be experiencing. He is the Word that reveals God’s thoughts toward you and can give you God’s view of events in your life.
God is silent no more! Let’s come together to listen to him this weekend.
