Our Words

Jesus spoke in John chapter 12:

49 “For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.

50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”

Those of us who desire to be fully led by THE SPIRIT will begin to pay close attention to the words we speak.  We either speak words of life or words of death, it is our decision.  If our words are motivated by Agape Love, we will bless those around us and lift them up higher.  Yet if we speak with “self” as our motivation, we will disparage and exalt ourselves over others.  Ultimately, our words will reflect what is in our heart and Jesus made this point in Matthew chapter 12:

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.

34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.

36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.

37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

If given enough time with another person, you can find out what is in their heart because they will let their guard down and begin to reveal their fruit.  If we constantly listen to the world filled with men’s opinions, traditions, and motives, we will speak in a worldly fashion.  When we immerse ourselves in HIS Word, we will replace the world’s influence with HIS life-filled Word.  Let us not be ignorant of FATHER’S Word in any area of our life for it is the standard by which we can address issues that come before us.

We should guard our words and do as Jesus did: speak what FATHER has told us to speak by HIS  HOLY SPIRIT.  When we know not what to speak, consider saying nothing rather than attempting to fill in the silence with unfruitful words.

By THE SPIRIT, it is written in Hebrews chapter 11:

3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

Every Word FATHER speaks has power and authority behind It.  HIS Word could easily destroy a person if HE misspoke.  As we mature as Sons and Daughters and become one with The Word, we to will have the power and authority to speak life or death in a situation.  As we become One with The Word just as our Elder Brother Jesus is One with The Word, we must guard our words for they will become faith-filled Words and initiate change in people’s lives.  Love must become the source of all our words just as it is with FATHER.  Let us affirm others with our words and lift them up.

The integrity of FATHER’S WORD is the basis of our faith.  HIS Word performed a miracle in my when I received salvation.  HIS Word performed another miracle in me when I received the baptism of The Holy Spirit and the change in my life was remarkable.  In Hebrews chapter 4:

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

There is sufficient power in HIS Word to change men’s hearts and resulting actions just as HE changed my heart in a miraculous fashion.  As we mature in our understanding and wisdom, we will place HIS Word above all else and our words will reflect the preeminence of being in unity with THE FATHER, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Our words will grow in power and authority.  We will come to expect miracles as we speak to the issues brought before us for our faith in HIS Word coming forth out of our mouths will be backed by HIS power and authority.  Let our words only bring forth life.
