A Place in His Presence Lesson 6: Never Silent

I think one of the greatest misnomers about the time between the Old and New Testaments is calling God "silent." We mean, of course, that we have no biblical record of that time--that God didn't inspire any words to be inscribed in the Scriptures, that He didn't speak through the prophets the way that He had. But to call Him silent suggests passivity. And He has never been a God to sit back. He has always been a God moving to deliver His people. So as we consider the time from the exile through the end of the Old Testament, we will look for the hand of God where we might miss Him at first glance. And we will trust and see that He has always been a God preparing a place for us in His presence.
