“God is not…a secret” ~Trinityizreal
Let us be reminded to tell others about Him! We ought not keep silent but ought to tell of His goodness and declare what the Lord has done for us.
Mark 16:15 (New American Standard Bible)
15And He said to them, “(A)Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Acts 1:8 (New American Standard Bible)
8but you will receive power (A)when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be (B)My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and (C)Samaria, and even to (D)the remotest part of the earth.”
Ephesians 6:18-20 (New American Standard Bible)
19and (G)pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me (H)in the opening of my mouth, to make known with (I)boldness (J)the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an (K)ambassador (L)in chains; that [a]in proclaiming it I may speak (M)boldly, (N)as I ought to speak.

Threat and Release
14And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply.
15But when they had ordered them to leave the (D)Council, they began to confer with one another,
17“But so that it will not spread any further among the people, let us warn them to speak no longer to any man (G)in this name.”
18And when they had summoned them, they (H)commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
20for (K)we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
22for the man was more than forty years old on whom this miracle of healing had been performed.
23When they had been released, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them.
24And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord and said, “O Lord, it is You who (N)MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM,
25who (O)by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said,
‘(P)WHY DID THE [a]GENTILES RAGE,
AND THE PEOPLES DEVISE FUTILE THINGS?
26‘(Q)THE KINGS OF THE EARTH TOOK THEIR STAND,
AND THE RULERS WERE GATHERED TOGETHER
AGAINST THE LORD AND AGAINST HIS (R)CHRIST.’
27“For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy (S)servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both (T)Herod and (U)Pontius Pilate, along with (V)the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
28to do whatever Your hand and (W)Your purpose predestined to occur.
30while You extend Your hand to heal, and (Z)signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy (AA)servant Jesus.” 31And when they had prayed, the (AB)place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all (AC)filled with the Holy Spirit and began to (AD)speak the word of God with (AE)boldness.
