The lips of the Righteous feed many!

Use your mouth and Words on purpose!

faith speaks

There is a verse in Proverbs that reads:
Pr 10: 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

As most of you know I owned and operated a carpentry company for many years, and as the company grew, I realized my time was far better spent estimating and bidding work, collecting checks, managing projects, ordering materials, and fixing or getting tools on the right job, on time. (If you do Facebook, and want to see some cool pics of some of the projects we built, check out: https://www.facebook.com/Grace-Interior-Trim-LLC-244907400682/?fref=ts

One day at work, as I was blazing along on my cell phone, doing sales calls, setting appointments, ordering materials, and moving at incredible speed,  a bitter carpenter said to me: ‘Must be nice, you don’t even work any more, all you do is talk on that damn phone all day!”

Even though I was writing that man’s paycheck, I took a deep breath, and asked the Lord, what He thought about the man’s comment, because there is some truth, in what the man said: Construction is not for the faint hearted, you gotta bust a move to make stuff happen, because you only get paid, for what you get built, and you are constantly working yourself out of a job. The Scripture is plain: 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat

work overalls

When he said, ‘all you do is talk on the damn phone all day’ I was reminded of the verse:

Pr 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

Another version reads: Proverbs 14:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
23 In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty.

work profit

Asked the Lord, if I was wasting time on the phone, when bold and loud Holy Spirit spoke to me: Pr 10: 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

Lips of the righteous

I wasn’t using my phone for idle chit chat, but it was a weapon of war in my hand, as a seasoned leader.

Besides, I was serving Jesus, and had a covenant with God, and when I did a moral inventory of my work week vs this man’s I realized I worked far more hours, with far more stress and responsibility than that man could presently understand.

How much more, as a minister of the gospel! We have authority, anointing, and the very living word of God upon our lips, opening the door to heaven or hell in a person’s life as we preach God’s Word!

I take this responsibility extremely seriously!

God is not joking when we read: Pr 13:3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

words many transgress

Pr 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

I love the power of words! https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/02/05/let-your-spirit-free/

My words, spoken in authority in prayer over your life, mine, and my families, are destroying devilish plots against us, and producing acts of blessing, healing, miracles, revelation, wisdom, joy, peace, provision and prosperity in us, and our families!

word of fire

Though I now serve in full time ministry, and part-time construction, through prayer and the release of my confession of faith each day, My lips, still feed many.

So should yours!

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, set a watch on my lips, and grant me utterance in the Holy Spirit today, as we speak words of faith, power, deliverance, and blessing into the earth, enforcing your love, power, kingdom, truth, will and way in this generation, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!”

Oh that my words be written!

Job 19: 23 What I would give to have my words taken down,
to have them inscribed for posterity on a scroll.

words written1
They were Job!

Not only that, our words are also being recorded…

Mt 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

We need to be careful with our Words!

Psalm 19:14

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer


Let’s pray:
‘Father, help me to carefully watch over my words, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

The Silent Scream!

The Silent Scream

silent scream
Mark 11:12 ¶ And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it

20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Tonight I want to talk about things that have no audible voice, but in our lives, they scream.

In this passage of Scripture we see Jesus speaking to a fig tree, and you know the rest of the story, it withered up and died.

Yet, I don’t know about you, but I never heard a tree speak before, have you? Yet, Jesus answered it!

We are not into pantheism here, looking for creative things to have spirits, and worshipping the creation, rather than the Creator, but what is being said here?

That tree had a voice!

What was it saying?

To Jesus, it must have been saying: ‘I have leaves, so I should have fruit’

Yet it had not fruit.

Jesus looking for fruit

So Jesus answered it, and said:’You will have no fruit ever again’

He spoke in authority, and that tree was dead, from the moment he spoke the Word to it. It’s very life force went out of it!

Then, He gives us the law of faith in Mark 11:23,24. I will touch on it some, but Kenneth E. Hagin, the founder and my instructor from Rhema Bible Training Center, taught on this verse for 65 years straight, and still did not exhaust the revelation in it, so anything I say here, is only going to be a brief introduction to the topic.

Let’s talk about the silent scream for a minute.

What is screaming in your life right now?

Is it the agony of unpaid bills heaped in piles upon your table?

Is it the physical pain of a sickness or disease, that has no voice, yet screams in agony?

Is it the pain of a marriage gone awry? You are trying to serve Jesus, but your spouse is blind to their sin, and the pain they are causing you, so you suffer in silence?

How about the pain of betrayal, treachery, where someone close to you totally destroyed you…?
betrayal

Is it the fire of unjust authority either in prison, on a job, in a home, from the government, or in a church? Rules and regulations that cause you excruciating heartache, threatening to strangle the very life of God from you, day by day, week by week, and year by year!

How about an unsaved loved one, that continues to go astray, continually making poor choices in life, breaking your heart?

None of these situations have a physical voice, but you and I both know, they SCREAM!

I remember a couple years back renting a storage unit to store tools for our business, and finding that an interesting community of musicians had chosen this same complex, to practice with their bands. I learned about a new type of music I had never heard of before, a heavy metal kind of thrash band, with intense drums, loud electric guitars, and lead singers that specialized in uttering piercing deep throated screams…. As I heard them venting their screams, I thought about this message tonight. Young people so broken and hurt, that no mere words could find the deep place of their pain, so they would thrash, and from the depths of their heart, scream.

Pretty eerie experience, yet it left a mark on me. Sure there were probably demons involved in some of their antics, but I heard by the Holy Spirit something more than demonic babble, I heard human, deep, broken and shattered pain. A cry for help….I’m sure hell will be full of this kind of noise, but these were from people not in hell, and God used them to touch me heart in intercession, knowing Holy Spirit was warring for their souls…

As I have broken before the Lord over the years, and in many cases, wept until I could weep no more, there has always come incredible joy, after each deep sacrificial broken prayer.
Ps 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Ps 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Out of the depths of despair, I have found the heart of mercy of our God, and I come out wielding a prophetic sword, in authority against demons, people and things that would kill and destroy people.

So must you.

What is speaking into your life?

Finances? Sickness? Heartbreak? Unjust authority structures?

You answer is in your lips! YOU must speak to those things and command them to leave your life.

This alone will bring the change you need in your circumstances.

Let’s pray:

“Father, you see the hardness of people, and the brutality I face. Give me the words of wisdom, authority, and courage to speak to these things that are screaming at me. In your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.”

Do You Talk Too Much?

Do you talk too much?

Proverbs 20:19 (NLT)19 A gossip goes around telling secrets,
so don’t hang around with chatterers

Cell phones!

In my moving and shaking days, I used 6000 minutes/month spinning the dial on my IPhone, and hustling up work for the crews of men working for us. Then, Jesus got ahold of me, and dealt with me about trusting Him for my support, and using His words to get things done, not my effort.

smart phone

Proverbs 10:19
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise

Tripped by the lip, Hung by thier Tongue!

Learned to spend way more time talking to God instead of people. Save a lot on the phone too, because I rarely use more than 300 minutes a month talking to people.

Use your words wisely, and God will watch over them to perform them.

Jesus said: Matthew 12:36

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.The sense here, is of chatter. Idle words being non-productive, non-working words.

Put Your Words to Work for YOU!

You have been given kingdom authority and responsibility, and you can submit to the Lord, and have Holy Spirit literally create things through you: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/02/05/let-your-spirit-free/

design create

Then, as you use your faith on purpose, with rein of the Holy Spirit upon your mouth, you will discover:

Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right

You will put a smile on King Jesus face!

He will cause you to rise above your circumstances, and lead and feed many!How?

With your faith-filled words!

Recently, I have spent many days with a pastor, who is also a Christian contractor. I have been greatly blessed by his cell-phone etiquette. He is always loving, courteous, and pleasant on the phone, and brief, to the point, and almost blunt in ending calls. Yet, He has more business than he could possible desire. He knows what He is doing, He is using his time and words correctly, on-purpose, and clearly, God is working with him in it.

The lips of the righteous feed many:

Let’s Pray:

Father God, set a rein upon my mouth, my words! Holy Spirit, flow through my speech, to create Your plans, provision, and vision for my life and family.  I ask this, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen’

The Creative Power of the Word of God

2 Kings 4:42 One day a man from Baal-shalishah brought the man of God a sack of fresh grain and twenty loaves of barley bread made from the first grain of his harvest. Elisha said, “Give it to the people so they can eat.”

43 “What?” his servant exclaimed. “Feed a hundred people with only this?”

But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what the Lord says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!” 44 And when they gave it to the people, there was plenty for all and some left over, just as the Lord had promised.

Matthew 4:4

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

2 Peter 1:4

whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Psalm 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple

WOG light

John 10:27 (AKJV)

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

obey hear voice

God did not create the universe from nothing.

We are so limited by sense knowledge, things we can touch, taste, see, feel, smell and hear through mere natural reasoning’s….

No, God created all material things, all life from a higher realm of matter, a substance called Spirit, for God is spirit and those who worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Throughout our lifetime, God is pouring out His spirit upon all flesh, drawing us to Himself, and even as we have natural senses, deep within our hearts, there are premonitions of supernatural senses, as our heart of hearts, our human spirit hungers for the true realities of our Creator.

Jesus is the bridge, the only way to fully communicate between our infinite God and His Spirit, and this natural world.

Over our lifetime, the supernatural, our sixth sense so to speak, often becomes visible, as we experience dreams, divine interventions, déjà-vu experiences as the Holy Spirit alerts us to spiritual realities, to reveal the glories of heaven, should we but ask for them…

It is when heaven invades earth, that things get interesting.

Days northern lights

In this account, we have a man of God, Elisha, walking closely with heaven, and its infinite resource. He understands not only that God is Creator, but that the WAY He creates is by speaking….

When He speaks, Holy Spirit takes from the realm of Spirit, and literal creates whatever He commissions.

While the people in this story had a natural hunger and need, they only saw natural supply and provision. There was not enough…

Yet, they spoke their natural reasoning’s in the presence of a man who had his spiritual senses alive and active!

He saw the throne of God, He heard intuitively the heart and intent of our Father for this situation: People were about to taste and see the goodness of the Lord and their natural hunger was about to be satisfied, as God spoke through Elisha, and Holy Spirit created the supply of food needed to feed everyone, completely, with no lack.

Further down the corridor of time, Jesus would perform this miracle several times, during His earthly ministry in dividing the loaves and fishes, yet His method was the same:

He saw heaven’s agenda (He only did the will of the Father), He believed and spoke what He saw, and the entrance of God’s voice, His living word into the earth, created the material provision needed.

fatherhood God

This is how we are to live!

In tune, in step with heaven, only doing the will of our heavenly Father.

Like Jesus, seeking the will of our Father, carefully, daily, and ONLY doing and saying what we hear Him commission us to do and say.

As we do, the Bible becomes a living book, as He breaths upon its pages and passages, illuminating promises, and creating supernatural pathways for us to walk upon through the entrance of His word becoming a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths.

What is He saying to you today?

Hearing the Voice of God

Speak it out!

Just like Elisha and Jesus, He will create that which He commissions you to speak.

Let’s pray:

‘Father, Jesus promised that we should not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of Your mouth.  Lord Jesus, You have promised that You would be our shepherd, our personal pastor in this life, and that we would hear Your voice, and the voice of a stranger, we would not follow. We are listening Lord, and now, we speak that which You are saying to us, and through us to meet the needs of this hurting world. Amen.

Singing Their Sermon – What are you listening to?

Singing their sermon – The Power of Words

Proverbs 18:21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof

Thinking about one of the ‘boom chucka boom ‘ cars that drove by me one day, pumping violent murderous rap music into the airwaves, with about every imaginable cuss word being loudly inserted for effect.

poison rap

I know the power of words, that lead to thoughts, that will eventually lead to deeds…for it is written:

Proverbs 23:7 [Full Chapter]

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:

Thoughts Words and Deliberate Deeds!

I believe you could take anyone, and pump their minds full of that murder, hate, profanity, perversion, and adrenaline and produce a criminal…

Spoke with a young man one day about it, and he said: ‘Don’t mess with my music! It’s just songs…’

Sometime later, I was speaking with a medical doctor that volunteered in a facility for troubled teens.

I asked him how best to relate to some of these troubled young people, and what he thought about this ‘gangster rap’ kind of music.

His response was enlightening:

He simply asks them how much the artist pays them to ‘sing their sermon.’ He then explains to them that every song is a sermon, a message to the world. When an artist is producing lyrics to songs that are not edifying, every time we sing their song, we are advertising for the artist, and not getting paid for it.

If their lyrics line up with Scriptural truths, then we glorify God in music, no matter what style of music is used. If they lyrics portray violence, sexual depravity, hatred, and profanity, then we feed those things in our lives, and eventually open the door to performing that which we listen to.

“Trust me, that artist ain’t going to take your rap, or do time for the crimes you commit’

Our mind is a precious gift, a garden to be guarded, guided, grown, and transformed into the mind of Christ.

We can’t plant weeds in the garden and expect good fruit…

transform

Be a true superhero, today – it begins in your mind…

renew-your-mind

Let’s pray:

‘Father, show us what we are putting into our minds each day. Help us to put in what is good, clean, passionate, and pure, and to intentionally remove movies, music, and messages, that are contrary to You and Your love. In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

Let Your Spirit Free! Create!

Let thy spirit run free!

design create

In the book, ‘The E-Myth Revisited’, the author recounts a fictitious account with a business owner named Sarah, and the importance of developing systems to produce excellence in her world, without her having to do all of it herself. In the dialogue he accidently stumbles upon a spiritual law, the law of creating your world, with your faith-filled words!

Hebrews 11:3

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear

Romans 10:6

But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh

2 Corinthians 4:13

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

design world

In dreaming of what her business could be, Sarah decided to unlock her spirit, and create a slogan for her business. As she thought on it I quote:

“There will be no stuffing of the spirit here, my business will say. Maybe I should put it up above the door to remind everyone who comes in what our purpose is. She grinned. “Or maybe better yet, ‘Let thy spirit run free!’ Yes, that’s better, It even feels better” She laughed out loud at the joy of it!

As she continued, it became so clear to me, what a miraculous gift speaking can be.

I saw that Sarah wasn’t so much talking to me, but to herself, discovering as she spoke the miracles that lived within her, within her experience, within her relationship with her aunt, within her extraordinary imagination. Discovering truths she never she knew. Discovering all the wealth that was waiting there inside of her to be unearthed, to be explored, to be treasured as the words came tumbling forth’

As though the words, once freed by the speaking of them, combined with the air to become something else again:  A vision, Understanding, Expansion.

design words

create

Do you see the principal?

God, placed a dream within her, that she had not yet articulated yet. She believed in her heart the dream, but had nev er yet spoken it into existence. When she began to speak, miracles began to happen! God, the Creator, and author of all creativity, breathed upon her dream, just as he breathed upon His own dream way back in the days of creation, when He would speak, and His breath, the person of the Holy Spirit, would create and bring into existence, what  He spoke, and it was good!

design miracle

What is your dream?

We all have one, for we are created in the image and likeness of God.

It needs to be spoken, articulated, and if it is worthwhile, written down, and quantified into some sort of action plan.

Don’t die, taking to the grave your dream unspoken, unrealized, unfulfilled.

Speak it! If only to a close friend, or into your microphone on your computer, speak it.

faith speaks

Like Sarah, the princess of God, miracles will unlock from deep inside of you, because when you received Jesus into your heart, your heart has become the fertile soil of His beauty, His dreams, His creativity – your lips become His voice in this generation, and your world, your work, becomes an expression of His creativity and love in the earth.

Speak the dream!

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I come before you, and I see some of these deep, beautiful things on the inside of me, are Your things, that like Mary, I have pondered in my heart for years. Flow through me Holy Spirit, with Your words erupting from the depths of my heart, writing your eternal dreams, on the canvas of time, my life the beautiful expression of Jesus, alive in my generation. Amen’

Discussing Cussing!

Discussing Cussing!

Is Cussing Wrong?

Mt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Well, God is love, and God is holy. God loves us, and has called us to walk in honor before Him, as His children, with royal dignity and privilege. We are children of the most high God, created for His pleasure and purpose in the earth!

royal

So, as His ambassadors, we should be speaking His words, words of love, life, truth, honesty, and kingdom law.

Pr 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Yet, we live far below our rights and privileges, allowing our hearts to be filled with profanity, and whatever is inside of us, will come out.

Mt 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Mt 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Taking the Lord’s name in vain is clearly sin:

Ex 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

De 5:11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Kinda puts an end to the OMG you see all over Social Media.

It’s not cute in the courts of heaven; you need to find another way to express yourself!

Jas 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

tongue fire

Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

tame tongue

Eph 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

Ro 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Mt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Pr 19:1 ¶ Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

We are not to cuss, or utter unholy words!

Listen to the Psalmist’s prayer:
Ps 39: 1 ¶ «To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.» I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

Notice here ‘while the wicked is before me’.

It is easy refrain from cussing and profanity, while we are in church, but what about out on the job site, in our places of work?

What about when others are cussing, discussing and fussing?

Are we strong enough, do we fear God enough, do we love Jesus enough, to refrain from entering into their filth?

The first two commandments are to love God, THEN love people.

Loving God means we obey Him.

Obeying Him means watching over our words.

Thinking deliberately what heaven thinks about every word we speak, as His representatives in the earth.

Would Jesus cuss?

Never!

He is without sin, and we are called to be like Him in this:

Romans 8:29 ¶ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Will God forgive you?

forgive them for they know not

Yes, remember Peter?

Mark 14: 70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.

Matt 26: 74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Jesus forgave Jesus for cussing and denying Him, and Peter definitely knew better.

He will surely forgive you!

I grew up with a praying mom. Although she did not know the Word of God, she was a devout Catholic, and a moral woman. I remember when my dad was stationed in Digby, Nova Scotia, and was away at sea. I was about five years old, and my mom was raising the three of us. I had gone out the play structure behind the house, and was playing with some other kids, and another little boy taught me some words I had never heard before, that he made me recite a couple of times to get down. So, proud as punch I went home and proclaimed to my mom: F*** you mom! Her eyes got big, and she said: ‘WHAT DID YOU SAY?’.

Thinking I was cool like my new friends, I smiled and said: ‘F*** you mom!’

Suddenly, she grabbed me, and dragged me by the scruff of the neck into the bathroom, and grabbed a bar of Dove soap, and jammed it in my mouth! Then she grabbed our rinse cup from the toothbrush rack, and filled it with water, and despite my kicking and screaming, made me gargle with it!

wash mouth

Let’s just say that she made an impression!

Even though I was not yet saved, God was pleased that I honored my mom:
Ro 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Now, I cannot say that I never cussed again, just not in the presence of my mom!

Why did I keep cussing? Simple, I did not know Jesus, my heart was dark, unredeemed, I was dead spiritually.

Ps 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Christianity is not a religion, but a radical personal relationship with the Creator of the universe, by new birth, Christ in us, the hope of glory.

Dogs bark, birds chirp, cats meow, horses whinney, and sinners sin.

Except a man be born again, he cannot even see the kingdom of God.

God did not come to make bad people good or good people better:

Jesus came to make dead people alive!

When we truly receive Jesus,

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Ga 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

When we truly receive Jesus, He comes into our heart, and changes us on the inside. Our very desires change. We literally become a new creation, a new species of being.

Joy1

Can someone be born again and still cuss?

Unfortunately, yes, but you won’t like it any more.

Kinda like smoking. Can a Christian still smoke cigarettes? Yes, cigarette smoking will not send you to hell, but you may sure smell like you been there. God promises that with long life will He satisfy you, but your body has now become a temple of the Holy Spirit. Smoking may not send you to hell, but you may get to heaven a lot quicker.

1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Both my mom and dad died of lung cancer, and spending the years at their bedside watching them gasp for breath as the cancer wasted them away, was ugly, horrible, and still vivid in my mind.

I cannot claim to love you, and not warn you of the consequences of your actions.

Why? Because your heart hates it: It is no longer your nature.

I like the way a man said in service some years ago, after he accepted Jesus:
‘You have no idea the things I have done. My heart is dark, yet after I received Jesus, I feel F***king great!”

My wife explained to him that when our clothes get dirty, we wash them. We put them in the machine, with soap and bleach if they are really dirty, and they agitate, and the soap and water cleans them. That the blood of Jesus is like the soap that causes our clothes to become clean, the water is the Word of God.

God will take the darkness right out of our hearts, his blood will wash us, and clean us up.

listen blood
This man, just coming out of the bar, a marine just back from Afghanistan, exclaimed: ‘That’s f***king awesome! Oops, I shouldn’t say that anymore right?’

Right!
Okay, maybe I’ve grown up on military bases, and worked with some rough men most of my life, and I’m not as holy as I need to be, but I break out laughing thinking about this guy.
So relax. God loves you.
Receive Jesus, and ask Him to forgive you for cussing, and to cleanse your heart from it.
He’s holy, and He cannot lie. He loves you and He will forgive!
Ps 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
God loves you, and so do I, so let’s pray

:God loves You

Father, I need You. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, and cleanse it, and cleanse my tongue from my profanity. Fill me with Holy Spirit, and show me what You want me to do. Help me to understand Your Word, and to care for and love my fellow man. In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

What are you eating?

What do you say?

Pr 18:20 ¶ A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

I like good, healthy, nutritious food! I love to eat! Well, good food is expensive, but we are children of God, royalty, with royal rights and privileges before His throne. Today, I feel to pray specifically for good, healthy food, for me, my family, and any of you reading this.

‘Father, today, I ask you for good, healthy food. Not just food to fill our belly, but food that satisfies our nutritional needs. I believe I receive it, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen!”
