The Speaking Dead

“... And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead."
(Hebrews 11:4).


A bel, son of Adam, is the first human being to die (physical death). He is therefore the man who has been dead the longest, yet he still speaks. Did you hear him? He speaks everyday, do you usually hear him?

You need faith to hear him because he speaks by faith.

Is there anything that hurts more than being "killed" by your own—brethren?

Despite how bad it hurts, this is what Abel says:

Righteousness can cause you a great deal of harm; your sacrifices of faith will offend somebody, and that person can be very close, he may kill you in one way or the other, including physical death. Nevertheless, don't allow this to intimidate you, hence silenced.

There will be very close people that will not rejoice with you when you are promoted; married, etc while they remain stagnant.

Even when betrayed, including being killed, speak like Abel. Speak faith. Faith and bitterness are not compatible. Abel cannot speak by faith and still speak bitterness.

The content of the package of righteousness include the following:

i) Offering your best (this shows the level of your devotion to the Father);

ii) Willing to suffer for it (It is natural to expect to be rewarded for it, but be ready that you may even be killed for it);

iii) Continue speaking "in death" (Speak by faith and speak faith, your voice in death may be stronger than the voice of the living).

It is one thing to please God and expect to be rewarded for it; it is another to grant God sovereignty and subscribe to His righteous judgment even when He permits that you suffer for doing the right thing (examples of Abel, Job, David, Joseph, Jesus, etc).

Those who die for having pleased God will never be silenced, it doesn’t matter how long they have been dead
