~ A Wise Man's Words ~
Hello Church, Today I am giving scripture teaching on our words. Not only does the unbelievers fall short on the knowledge of the power of our words but many of us in the body of Christ. I first want to bring to OUR memory that we are nothing without God. We need to be quick to listen and slow to speak. God gave Solomon wisdom because he asked for it. That is why Solomon was the wisest man back in the Old Testament days. There is a little word that has caused much strife, it is
Are you quick to listen and slow to speak?
In Proverbs 10: 11-14,19-21, 31-32 it is written...
11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.
21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.
31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.
32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
What many do not understand is that we will have what we speak! AND...we can speak words of cursing on others by our trying to Judge them. Our only job is to LOVE, be Christlike and Pray for those that are in bondage and fall short of the knowledge of God's word that God would quicken unto their Spiritman a longing to feed on God's word to get the uncorruptible word of God in their heart,with knowledge and understanding that feeding on His Word brings victory and deliverance with power from the Holy Spirit anointing all with Authority to change our lives and those around us.
In Prov.25:11,12,15 it is written....
11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
15 By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
Awe , My being a poet also, these words are music to my ears, I love the word of God,So many poetic verses to feed upon.
21 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
23 The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.
24. It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house. I like to give my teaching out of King James Version but it is always good to see in laymans terms the same scriptures.
I wanna share these past ones out of the Amp.
21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;(K)
22 For in doing so, you will [a]heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord will reward you.
23 The north wind brings forth rain; so does a backbiting tongue bring forth an angry countenance.
24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop than to share a house with a disagreeing, quarrelsome, and scolding woman.
(L) I tell you my brethren, We Have Got To Become Better....Instead of Bitter The Only difference between bitter and better is one letter. We have got to become Powerful instead of Pitiful :-) Allowing any stress, grief, or doubt to enter into our minds and hearts gives the devil an opportunity to rule your life. If you don't stop evil by speaking out the word of God then we are made partakers and creators of it. As the word says there is Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is Love.
There is Agape Love which is A God kind of love There is Phileo which is a brotherly love
There is Storge which is a Mother or Father kind of love
and there is Eros which is Exotic love,just sexual.
We must strive for the Agape love, and first and foremost to Forgive. You cannot love someone as God commands you to without forgiving the wrongs that they have done or their shortcomings.
In Matt. 7:1-5 it is written ...
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
DO YOU REALIZE THE IMPACT AND MEANING OF THIS VERSE! If we don't judge others then judgement won't come upon us. This is done by just excepting others with love and as it is said We shall reap what we sow. And once again I will remind you that in Mark 4:14 The sower sows the word.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
We all fall short of the glory of God. That is the reason Jesus came,His mercy and Grace is sufficient and His mercy is renewed daily. Is there anything that someone could do or say that can't be covered by the blood? No....Not Nothing!! Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Repay not evil with evil.We must work out our own salvation and in doing so keep our eyes upon Jesus and feed on God's word and to be quick to listen and slow to speak....And....Quick to FORGIVE. Amen and Amen I also will be sharing a poem inspired by the Holy Spirit titled A Light Unto My Path Look for it in the titles of my shares.
