Isaiah 57 The Law of Silence

The Spirit OF Christ commanded The Law of Silence in the Prophets.  Jesus whom God made to be both Lord and Christ made these prophecies or laws mor certain. Peter said that this was not subject to private interpretation or further expounding.  The command was to PREACH this Law of Christ by READING it. Peter said that those who do not follow this Law of Silence are False Teachers just using you to make money.

In Isaiah 58 Christ will make a LAW against seeking your own pleasure or even SPEAKING your own Words. Jesus exampled this by STANDING UP to Read from Isaiah and then SAT DOWN. There was no preaching other than "giving attendance to the public READING of the Word and exorting or COMFORTING by Scripture and defining the DOCTRINE or Law of Christ in the prophets.

The Qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) practiced in a settled sense each REST (never means worship) day.  John Calvin defined the Restoration of The Church of Christ in terms of Numbers 10.

The Ekklesia A Church of Christ: Jesus asks "shall He find faith when He returne?" Only a tiny remnant and they will be found PREACHING the Word by READING the Word and letting people rest FROM burdensome songs or "taxes not in time of War."

It was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing The Word.
It was EXCLUSIVE of "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" or high sounding speech.

Jesus defined the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites: in the Ezekiel 33 example Christ names slick speakers, singers and instrument players as the HYPOCRITES.  The professional preachers spoke form MONEY and the people listened for entertainment and neither one intended to obey Christ in the prophets.
Remembering that the PROPHETS by the Spiurit OF Chist along with the Apostles are THE only foundation for building or EDUCATING the Ekklesia or A Church of Christ.  He defines the LAW OF SILENCE over and over.

Isa 8:19And when they shall say unto you,
        Seek unto them that have familiar spirits,
        and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter:
                should not a people seek unto their God?
                for the living to the dead?

"In Isa 8:19 the 'obhoth and yidh'onim are spoken of those who 'chirp and mutter." These terms refer to the necromancers themselves who practiced ventriloquism in connection with their magical rites. In Isa 29:4 it is said 'Thy voice shall be as an 'obh, out of the ground.'... They are stamped in these passages, as in the Witch of Endor narrative, as deceivers practising a fraudulent art. By implication their power to evoke spirits with whom they were in familiar intercourse is denied." (Int Std Bible Ency., ency, p. 690)

These monuments always show the Israelites as having straight noses, typical of Anglo Saxons. Other monuments, when they show Hittites or other Canaanite people, always show a hook nosed face.

Naturally such Canaanite faces would stand out in contrast to the Anglo Saxon, Israelite faces of Jerusalem. Even today these Canaanite faces stand out in Washington, D.C., London, New York, Los Angeles and other governmental or commercial cities. These are the people that can be recognized by the mere sight of their faces. These were the people that told the entire house of Israel to get out of Jerusalem, as these Canaanites were taking the land for themselves.

These infiltrating Canaanites weren't part of Yahweh's own vine, for they never were any part of true Israel. They had secured positions of wealth and power in Israel and Judah. They were corrupting the nation so that it was no longer bearing the sort of fruit, which Yahweh expected from His vine.

See Isaiah 5.

These Canaanite infiltrators are also the same people against whom Yahweh spoke in Isaiah 57:3-4. In the Hebrew He calls these Canaanites, "children of inborn transgression, and a false seed."

Isa 57:3 But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

"We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'AROUSERS,' sang (every morning?) this verse from "Ps 44:23: "Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever." The Talmud tells us that John Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom." (Roland de Vaux, p. 247).

1Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
1Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach,

Paul identified the PROPHETS and APOSTLES as that upon which a church is built or EDUCATED. The elders were to teach that which HAD been taught.  Jesus is the ONLY Teacher and only when the elders PREACH the Word by READING the Word each REST day. A teacher does not ADD to or subtract from the Word:

Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers,
         ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God;
        and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

The ORACLES must be SPOKEN

1Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God;
        if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:
        that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ,
        to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

ALL speaking roles are INCLUSIVE of the Oracles of God. There is nothing in the Ekklesia which gave it any authority to originate even the SUBJECT of discussion or debate.  Neither did the synagogue.

If you cannot speak that which has been spoken then be silent before the Lord.

THE MARK OF THE WICKED

Isaiah 58:2 Yet they seek me daily,
        and delight to know my ways,
                as a nation that did righteousness,
                 and [AS]  forsook not the ordinance of their God:
        They ask of me the ordinances of justice;
                they take delight in approaching to God.

Isaiah 58:3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they,
        and thou seest not?
        wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge?
                Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure,
                and exact all your labours.
Isaiah 58:4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness:
        ye shall not fast as ye do this day,
        to make your voice to be heard on high.


The Law of Silence does not let you speak beyond that which is written for our learning. The Ekklesia or A Church of Christ has no other ROLE to be filled and no DOLE to feed them.
