Be Onguard! Words Can Kill!

Words are powerful.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Covid 19 has revealed beyond a doubt the evil intention and wickedness of man, the thought of the heart, how murderous it can be.

Revelation 12:15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.

We have seen and heard of those with slight provocation or even without any, intentionally spitting on the face of others, knowing fully well they could be spewing the virus on a more vulnerable person.

We have heard of victims that died as a result of such encounter with the new weapon of mass destruction, a killer, a super spreader, a carrier infected with Covid 19 spitting virus over them.

I wonder if you ever thought of people speaking evil into the lives of others as evil, killers of lives and destinies! The word of God says that life and death is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21.

Many on a whim spew out curses like rain, pouring out words from the deep seated wickedness, insecurity, pain and hurt in their soul on unsuspecting vessels. Matthew 12:35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.

Others go around dropping venom on every surface, any ears that is accessible, for the detriment of many forgetting that we all will be judged by every careless and evil words we spew out. Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.

Therefore, be careful of that which you feed your soul with as we prepare to walk into this new door of a new year that God in His infinite mercy is opening to and for you and I. Mark 4:24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued.

Be watchful, stay awake, pay attention, stay conscious of what you hear! Does it bring fear? Doubt? Demean you? Exalt Satan and his agent over Christ Jesus? Does it exalt any human in place of God? Does it convict you of your sins? Does it encourages the good in you? Does it inspire you to live a life that is worthy of your precious salvation? Does it glorify mammon? Does it make excuses for your life of sin? The words you hear and feed yourself on friends, does it strip you of human dignity?

We need to remind ourselves that God spoke the world into being! Words are powerful! Any avenue from which words are spoken to demean, discourage, abuse, and degrade you as a human being is not of God.

The whole purpose of the devil is to strip you naked of the Radiance of God’s Glory, he want to strip you of your identity as a child of God so he can rule over you as god! Satan will take over your mind, your free will subtly with the words he speaks to you. He is a master manipulator, a liar and a good orator! Read the temptation of Jesus Christ in the Books of the Gospels. You must resist the devil and counter his lies with The Word of God today as in this new year!

Flee from every appearances of evil1 Thessalonians 5:22. Don’t feed your soul with poison! It will kill ya! Feed your soul with the word of truth. Read the Bible and books that build you up. Edify yourself and others with the scriptures this new year. It shall be well with you and all that is yours in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom!

Truth! Holy Spirit!

 

Acts 4:32 Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in  common. 33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. 34 Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, 35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had ne!ed. 36 And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus,37 having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

truthActs 5: 1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet.But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”

Reading the Acts of the Apostles makes you to wonder if the gospel that was preached and lived by then is what is been preached now! The disciples were not set against each other to spy, monitor and gather evidence yet Peter knew what was agreed upon. There was no need for the Holy Spirit was made manifest, He was real as Christ was to Peter!!!!! You would wonder why was there so much result then and there seems to be explainable result now?  We’ve gone lukewarm I guess! Why was it a death sentence to lie back then and now it has become a virtue so to speak? The fire on our hearts have gone cold. Oh Friends, let us fan it back. We must not go cold. Arise, shake off weariness and praise God. Ask God for help.

The Holy Spirit was manifest then and it is still very active today, and will be until our Savior comes back for the Church without spot or wrinkle. Yet, it is very easy for us to lie straight faced now and feel no qualms. Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Our Father In heaven, please pour out your Holy Spirit afresh on us. May the fire on the altar of our hearts be rekindled, may we hunger and thirst after righteousness like the apostles of old. We ask for fresh oil Lord. Fill us afresh with your Holy Spirit in Jesus mighty name we pray.

Shalom! Shalom!

Change Your Perspective!!! Love More!

Friends, do you want to grow in wisdom, peace and joy? Do not let envy, jealousy, and hatred rule your world!

Stop slandering. Learn to love.

You see, what you see in others is a reflection of your soul, inner mind. What you see in others is who you are ‘cos it is said that humans project unto others, that which they most hate about themselves.

Learn to treat everyone with respect and appreciate the honor of having the company of those in and around you.

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. No state is permanent, everything will come to pass one day and then what?

Are you thinking of hereafter? Jesus is coming soon!! For sure! It does not matter if you believe it or not, scriptures are been fulfilled as you are reading this blog. The trumpet will sound soon! Will I hear it, will you?

Jesus is Lord!!!
