“Your glorying [is] not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?”
Brothers and Sisters do you understand that a Little Sin goes along way? That to Jesus it matters What You Do, What You Say and that all things that Touch Your Life will be Judged. Because we, The Blood Bought, have Accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord, we have Escaped The Lake Of Fire, but, we will still be Judged. This Judgement will determine our Worthiness, that is, it will Weigh Our Lives to The Word Of God, His Ways not what we Think should be Right.
Jesus, Our Lord, said that every Idle Word will be brought to Light, that it will be Judged By Him.
“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
Now, the question should be, what does it mean to have an Idle Word. The word Idle means at Leisure, Lazy and Useless and the meaning of Word is Anything Uttered By The Living Voice. So, the meaning of an Idle Word is a Leisure, Lazy, Useless Utterance By A Living Voice, which means in the simplest terms, Speaking Without Thought Of What Is Being Said. Too many Say things by Habit, by Muscle Response taking No Thought Of What Is Being Said. Just in this one point, that is, Idle Word, we find it very important to Jesus, else He would not have even mentioned it.
You, Brothers and Sisters call Jesus Lord, but as it has been asked before, is He? The word Lord means that you Belong To Jesus, that He Has The Deciding Power Over Your Life In ALL ASPECTS, He Is Master! In order for this to happen, that means All that You Say and Do Jesus is In Control Over. This is why Jesus said, you call Me Lord, but yet You Do Not Do What I Say…
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
We must understand that Our Words are Powerful, that Life and Death proceeds through the lips, to Man or God.
“5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 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. … 8 But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. … 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.”
Jas 3:5-6, 8, 10
This is but one small thing, but what Great Power there is in Words We Say! There are some that say, we have not Cursed Man… but have you? Let’s look at Households how many you have told Your Spouse A Lie or Manipulated The Truth, thinking it is but a Small Thing? How many of you have said I Will or Will Not and have not kept that Word? How many of you that have children, have told them that there is a Santa Clause or Easter Bunny? How many have Taught Your Children To Lie to Keep One’s Self From Punishment? How many Lies have been spoken to other Family members or Friends or Colleagues or Boss? How many you have Spoken Curse Words to The Wind thinking no one heard you… but God did?
By the craftiness of Satan, he has Corrupted The Church, speaking things that should not have been accepted. Manipulating The Truth, making it a Lie that because You Felt Good About It, you did not Challenge what was being said or done. Too many of you Speak False Doctrine because you do not Know The Truth nor have you Sought The Truth.
In these, the Last Days Of The Gentiles, we see the Church Standing On Lies Above The Truth, fulfilling Scripture…
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
To those who are The Blood Bought, who Call Jesus Lord, we must Stand Against such things!! If we do not, we will be held accountable for Not Doing So. Today, in our society, dealing with the Corona Virus, there are those on their death beds, dying from this virus, that will not accept that it is the Corona Virus that is killing them, they think it is a Lie, a Hoax made up by the government! I say this only to show the worldly Acceptance Of A Lie.
You Speak, that we are All Brothers and Sisters, that there is Only One Jesus, but we are so against one another, because of Lies that have been Spoken and Believed. You Divide Jesus Among Yourselves, teachings others to do the same, saying We Believe… having your ignorance when it is Not What I Believe and Accept, but it is What The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit Believe and Accept In Our Lives that really matters. It is The Living Word Of God that we will be Judged By and that Word needs to be In Us, Through Us and Applied In Us to be The Children Of God.
We are told in Scripture to Purge our Old Selves that we may be New in Jesus. To Purge means to Rid Of Unwanted Quality or Condition or Feelings, to Abruptly Remove!
“Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:”
The only way to do this is to First- Make Jesus Lord, I mean Truly Lord Of Your Life; Second- you Must Renew Your Thinking to be The Thoughts Of God and His Ways; Third- you Walk What The Word Says To!
“1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
“Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Accepting Jesus As Lord we have a New Spirit, but our Soul still needs to change. Our Words need to Become New, our Thoughts need to Become New. Brothers and Sisters what we Confess with our Mouths is what We Believe In Our Hearts, so there Must be a Change In Our Thinking so that We Confess The Truth About God. It is not easy, it is hard, we can find ourselves slipping into the Worlds View if we do not stay on top of Our Relationship With Jesus. We Must Understand that no matter what the World Says or Does WE CANNOT BE LIKE THEM! Our Speech Must Confess Truth Of The Change that Jesus Has Made Within Us and We Must Stand…Unmovable!!!
If someone says, “I am a Christian…”, then because of Their Words, I begin to Weigh them against Scripture. If their Confession is Of Truth, then their Actions Must Accommodate! Now, before anyone gets mad, no we are not Perfect, but we are to Stride For Perfection, that means, Yes We Will Fall but We Do Not Stay There and We Are Learning To Change Into God’s Will!!!
We are told in Scripture, that we will KNOW THEM BY THE FRUIT THEY BARE…
“17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”
“Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by [his] fruit.”
“18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”
Brothers and Sisters, our Words must be Accompanied By Works, they go Hand in Hand. We must understand that what we say, even though we may think it is a Little Thing has the Power Of Life and Death to both Us and The Hearer. It can be one word that we continue to confess or it can be a group of words that we say, it does not matter the Quantity but it does matter the Quality!!!
So, Think Before You Speak,
make Sure Of Your Words
that they are In Truth!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
