Let our words be few…

wpid-screenshot_2015-11-19-22-57-18-1.jpg

What does it mean to let your words be few?

It means for one thing that we should never speak hastily, out of haughtiness, anger or resentment; for once those words are released, they are forever set in motion and can NEVER be brought back.

So let us choose our words wisely!

Words are not just simply sounds caused by air passing through our larynx.

Words have real power

God spoke the world into existence by the power of His words (Hebrews 11:3); and the Bible tells us that we are made in His image in part because of the power we have with words.

Words do more than convey information

The power of our words can actually destroy one’s spirit, even stir up hatred and violence.

They not only exacerbate wounds, but they inflict them directly.

Of all the creatures on this planet, ONLY man has the ability to communicate through the spoken word.

The power to use words is a unique and powerful gift from God.

Our words have the power to destroy and the power to build up (Proverbs 12:6); and the writer of Proverb tells us…

“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)

Are we using words to build up people or destroy them?

Are they filled with hate or love, bitterness or blessing, complaining or compliments, lust or love, victory or defeat?

Like tools they can be used to help us reach our goals or to send us spiraling into a deep depression.

Furthermore, our words not only have the power to bring us death or life in this world, but in the next as well.

Jesus said:

“But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36–37)

Words are so important, that we are going to give an account of what we say when we stand before the Lord Jesus Christ.

The apostle Paul wrote,

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
(Ephesians 4:29)

In this passage, Paul is emphasizing the positive over the negative.

The Greek word translated “unwholesome” means “rotten” or “foul.”

It originally referred to rotten fruit and vegetables.

Being like Christ means we don’t use foul, dirty language.

For some reason, many people today think it is macho or liberating to use vulgar humor, dirty jokes, and foul language, but this kind of talk has no place in the life of a Christian.

Paul continues:

“. . . but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” This is reminiscent of his words to the Colossians: “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”
(Colossians 4:6; see also Colossians 3:16)

There is a remarkable parallel between Ephesians 4:25, lying; Ephesians 4:28, stealing; and Ephesians 4:29, unwholesome talk.

In each case Paul is urging us to be a blessing to those with whom we have daily contact.

Paul is emphasizing that merely refraining from telling lies, stealing, or unwholesome speech is not enough.

The truth is that Christianity is not a mere “don’t” religion.

As followers of Christ we should emulate the example of Jesus whose words were so filled with grace that the multitudes were amazed (Luke 4:22).

Jesus reminds us that the words we speak are actually the overflow of our hearts (Matthew 12:34–35).

When one becomes a Christian, there is an expectancy that a change of speech follows because living for Christ makes a difference in one’s choice of words.

The sinner’s mouth is “full of cursing and bitterness” (Romans 3:14); but when we turn our lives over to Christ, we gladly confess that “Jesus is Lord” (Romans 10:9–10).

As condemned sinners, our mouths are silenced before the throne of God (Romans 3:19), but, as believers, our mouths are opened to praise and glorify God (Romans 15:6).

Christians are those whose hearts have been changed by the power of God, a change reflected in our words.

Remember, before we were saved, we lived in spiritual death (Ephesians 2:1-3).

Paul describes those who are dead in sin: “Their throats are open graves” (Romans 3:13).

Our words are full of blessing when the heart is full of blessing. So if we fill our hearts with the love of Christ, only truth and purity can come out of our mouths.

Peter tells us,

“In your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15)

Let the power of our words be used of God to manifest the power of our faith.

Be prepared to give the reason for why we love the Lord—at any time, to anyone.

Our words should demonstrate the power of God’s grace and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

May God enable us to use our words as an instrument of His love and saving grace.

[http://www.gotquestions.org/power-of-words.html]

We should also be careful about making rash promises, and the counsel of Scripture is that we let our words be few!

Ecclesiastes 5:1-7
Expanded Bible (EXB)

Be Careful About Making Promises
5 Be careful [Watch your step/feet] when you go to worship at the ·
Temple [house of God].

It is better to listen than to offer foolish sacrifices [or the sacrifice of fools] without even knowing you are doing wrong.

2 Think before you speak [Do not be quick with your mouth],
and be careful about what you say [do not let your heart rush to utter a word] to God.

God is in heaven,
and you are on the earth,
so say only a few words to God [let your words be few].

3 Dreams come from too much worrying [or work],
and too many words come from foolish people.

4 If you make a promise [vow] to God, don’t be slow to keep [delay to fulfill] it.

God is not happy [For there is no pleasure] with fools, so ·give God what you promised [fulfill what you have vowed].

5 It is better not to promise anything than to promise something and not do it [make a vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it; Deut. 23:21; Prov. 20:25; Matt. 23:16–22].

6 Don’t let your words [mouth] cause you [your flesh] to sin, and don’t say to the priest at the Temple [messenger], “I didn’t mean what I promised [It was a mistake].”

If you do, God will [Why should God…?] become angry with your words and will destroy everything you have worked for [the work of your hands].

7 Many useless [1:2] promises [or words] are like so many dreams; they mean nothing.

You should respect [or be afraid of; 5:7; 7:18; 8:12, 13] God.

In the following discourse, we are given some key instructions on how the wisdom of the Bible is to be applied to our life:

Life lessons
by Max Lucado

Ecclesiastes 3:1—5:17

Situation:  The author gives insights on values.

He encourages the reader to use time wisely by making right choices.

Observation:  One of the key words in this section is the word “time.”

Solomon said that God has an appropriate time for every activity and for every stage of life.

How we use our time reflects our values and our understanding of our eternal destination.

Inspiration:  You have an eternal address fixed in your mind as well.

God has “put eternity in their hearts” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Down deep you know you are not home yet.  So be careful not to act like you are.

Don’t lower the duffel bag too soon.

Would you hang pictures on the wall of a Greyhound bus?

Do you set up a bedroom at the roadside rest stop?

Do you load your king-size bed on a commercial flight?

Would you treat this world like home? It isn’t.

The greatest calamity is not to feel far from home when you are, but to feel right at home when you are not.

Don’t quench, but rather, stir this longing for heaven.

God’s home is a forever home. “I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23:6).

My friends Jeff and Carol just adopted two small children. Christopher, the older, is only three, but he knows the difference between Jeff’s house and the foster home from which he came.

He tells all visitors, “This is my forever home.”

Won’t it be great when we say the same? Couldn’t we use a forever home?

This home we’re in won’t last forever. Birthdays remind us of that.

During the writing of this book I turned forty-six. I’m closer to ninety than I am to infancy.

All those things they say about aging are coming true. I’m patting myself less on the back and more under the chin.

I have everything I had twenty years ago, except now it’s all lower.

The other day I tried to straighten out the wrinkles in my socks and found out I wasn’t wearing any.

Aging. It’s no fun. The way we try to avoid it, you’d think we could.

We paint the body, preserve the body, protect the body. And well we should. These bodies are God’s gifts.

We should be responsible. But we should also be realistic.

This body must die so the new body can live.

“What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.

These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever” (1 Corinthians 15:50 NLT).

Aging is God’s idea. It’s one of the ways He keeps us headed homeward.

We can’t change the process, but we can change our attitude. (From Traveling Light by Max Lucado)

Application:  Eternity Seems like a long way away for some people. If you’re avoiding thinking about it, start looking at your own mortality.

What does it mean for you to live today in the knowledge that God has set eternity in your heart?

What changes can you make in your lifestyle based on that knowledge?

Exploration:  Eternity—Psalm 89:47; 139:24; Isaiah 26:4; John 5:39; Galatians 6:8; 1 Timothy 6:12.  Hope is an olive leaf—evidence of dry land after a flood. Proof to the dreamer that dreaming is worth the risk.—Max Lucado (A Love Worth Giving)

The Bible is a very pragmatic book, when it comes to the issues of life; and I think one of the main things that we all should consider, as Christians, is the importance with which the Bible emphasizes of our lining up our individual lives with the directions and precepts we find written therein.

For truly the main goal of all of this and our main purpose in life, is that we put on the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16, Php 2:5), and that we walk in this world and in our ministries as Jesus walked (1 John 2:6)!

So are you ready now to come and join the Adventure, because truly it is the ONLY way to fly!

His name is Jesus Christ!

Don’t you dare leave home without Him, and certainly do not leave this life without Him, without knowing Him and accepting Him as your personal Lord and Savior!

How we are to navigate as Christians, in our daily walk…

image

The Christian walk entails a complete paradigm lifestyle change, that affects EVERY area of our life…

It’s not a religion and it’s not about going to church every now and again and/or having a passive intellectual belief in God’s existence!

Among other things, the Bible, which is called the Old and New testament (which is 66 books) contains our contract, i.e. our covenant with God; and as such, it tells us of our rights and privileges, and it also tells us what our responsibilities are and what God expects from us.

Jesus Calling
by Sarah Young

“Leave outcomes up to Me!

Follow Me wherever I lead, without worrying about how it will all turn out.

Think of your life as an adventure, with Me as your Guide and Companion.

Live in the now, concentrating on staying in step with Me.”

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
-Psalm 27:13-14

This Christian walk requires our walking in 24/7 fellowship and communion with our Creator; it is what we each have been designed for and it’s why we have been created.

Without that God connection in our life, we are ALL like fish, flopping around on the shores of life, looking for our way back home.

It is our primary responsibility that sometime between when we are born and when we depart this life that we establish this link with God and that we be reconciled back into God’s family; and it is our acceptance and obedience to the Gospel Message and our faith in Yeshua (Jesus), who is the Christ (MessIah), that makes this happen.

As Jesus Himself said, “There is no other way into heaven, excepted through Him!”

[See the following references: 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 1 John 2:23, 1 John 5:10-12, 1 John 5:20, John 5:23, Ephesians 4:4, Matthew 11:27, Acts 4:12, John 14:6, Romans 3:24, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17]

You see, the reason why this is the Grand Adventure of our lifetime, is because it is the ONLY thing that will satisfy us and fill that huge void that we each have inside our heart.

There is no middle ground here and there is no sitting on the fence (Mat 12:30).

Jesus made it very clear that if we wish to save our life, then it will be necessary for us to lose it, for His namesake; in other words, we are required daily to surrender our lives and our will to His service (Luke 17:33 and 1 John 2:6).

So how about it, are you game or not to enter into this Grand Adventure?

This is totally your decision and you have to decide.

Truly this is the most important decision any of us will make in our lifetime, and the fact is none of us knows the date and time of our departure from this earth.

So with that in mind, just understand this one thing, that there is an expiration date, and your window of opportunity to accept this offer gets more narrow with the passing of each day.

And this offer will terminate upon your death.

Mr. Ryan Moss sure knows how to pay tribute to Hawaii (and make you want to pack up and get there).

”The Aloha Project is a collection I believe showcases the beauty of Hawaii and the people that inhabit these majestic islands. To some it’s a playground, to others it’s a proving ground.

Conquering our fears and rising above our storms…

image

Eagles are able to rise above the storm by leaning into the storm, using the adverse winds in order to gain the necessary lift to rise above it…

It is fear of the unknown that keeps us in bondage; and this fear is either caused by those things that we are afraid might happen tomorrow, or those remembrances of bad things that happened yesterday, that we keep reliving in our minds.

These are the things that keep us in bondage and block our forward progress.

This battle is fought in our mind, and so it must first be won in our mind before we can get our breakthrough.

Old habits need to be replaced with new habits, and this journey begins through our meditation in God’s Word.

We must first understand the inerrancy of God’s word, in that there is no prophecy of scripture that arose from any one individual’s interpretation of the truth; but that these holy men of old wrote as they were breathed upon by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21).

Hence the Bible did not come about by the will of man, but these men of God spoke because they were inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Well the same God breathed inspiration that inspired these 40 authors to pin God’s Word to page, is also available to us, as we read and meditate within those same pages.

John 16:13

Jesus speaking: “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into ALL truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

It is only as we allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Word, making it become alive for us, that we are able to gain personal direction and wisdom for our lives.

Without that illumination of the Holy Spirit, the Bible is just ink on paper and is like every other book.

This reprogramming of our mind is the ONLY way that we are able to change the way we think (which is what repentance is); and it is through our meditation in God’s Word that we are acquainting ourselves with the character and nature of God, and in so doing we are learning to adapt our ways of thinking to God’s ways, and are therefore putting on the mind of Christ (Php 2:5).  

By this reprogramming of our minds, this washing of our minds by the Word and the Spirit, and then by our leaning into our fears, in faith, this is the ONLY way that we are able to conquer our fears.

Come join the Adventure!

Little things matter…

image

Since 2003, central Texan Elizabeth Laird goes to the airport to pay her respects to the troops. The 83-year-old gives each soldier a hug before they leave for deployment at Fort Hood.

It’s such a small gesture, but it has a big impact: giving those who serve their country a little warmth, compassion, and recognition before they go off to a place they may never return home from. 

But you can be sure that when they do come home, Elizabeth is there to hug them again. She’s a bit of a local hero known as the “hug lady,” and in her 12 years she has given half a million hugs to our troops. Then one day she wasn’t there.

Elizabeth has battled breast cancer for 11 years, and now she’s back in the hospital continuing her fight, but she’s not alone. Like the grandma in the window who waved to students, soldiers noticed Elizabeth’s absence and are returning the favor. The men and women are visiting Elizabeth in the hospital and giving her back oh so many of the wonderful hugs.

“It would be my honor to give her a hug in her time of need,” Staff Sgt. Jarvez Wilkes told NBC. “I made it my business to get down here and show her a little love because she’s shown me plenty of love.”

In 3 days, they’ve helped to raise over $70,000 to cover Elizabeth’s medical expenses.

“The outpouring of people, the comments coming in, it’s amazing,” said her son, Richard Dewees. “She’s touched this many people in that way with just a simple hug.”

[http://www.littlethings.com/grandma-hugs-soldiers-v1/?utm_source=amer&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_campaign=seniors]

Please add Elizabeth to your prayer list. May God bless her and heal her.

She’s proof positive that little things do matter, especially when given in love!

Be still and listen…

image

Be still and know that I am God” (Ps 46:10)…

In reflective quietness and solitude, having meditated much in God’s Word, is where we learn to discern the voice of God above all other voices!

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God or not: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

If what you are hearing does not line up with our spiritual plumbline, the Holy counsel of God’s Word, then you can know going out the gate that you are in error and are headed in the wrong direction.

Satan is a master of deception, whom the Bible says sometimes appears as an “angel of light” (2 Cor 11:14).

We read in the Bible how Jesus called him the “father of liars” (John 8:44); and his strategy and modus operandi is ALWAYS to bring in confusion and to get us off course from following God’s Word.

Satan will always attack us at our weakest moment, and he will always use yesterday’s abuses and/or tomorrow fears and anxiety, and the fact that he has had plenty of experience throughout the ages in pushing the buttons of people, like you and me, and in knowing how to back us into a corner, put on the pressure and apply the heat, all in order to push us off course.

This is exactly what he did in the garden of Eden, with Eve, and he has been doing it ever since, all in order to confuse and to deceive, in order that he may keep us from discerning and following God’s voice.

Jesus Christ is our ONLY true North and the only way we can be assured that we are on course is that we have to lineup everything we do and hear, including all of our doctrine and what we believe, with the inerrant counsel of God’s Word!

Let us each learn to be led of the Spirit, yes; but also, of necessity, least we drift off course, let  us ALWAYS keep our balance and monitor our heading, making course corrections along the way, using God’s Word as our spiritual compass.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Tim 3:16).

The Bankster’s globalist agenda, a.k.a. the New World Order…

The Bankster’s globalist agenda, a.k.a. the New World Order…
Video link
Political author Gearoid O Colmain discusses the Paris attacks with RT International…:https://youtu.be/L7GAbVhjTSw

In this press report we are told how the powers that be, these elitists criminals, who are in control of the Washington DC Corporation and the European Union, are using our nation, together with the EU, through the funding and creation of such groups as ISIS, in order to destabilize the geopolitics of the world.

Mind you this is a report you will never hear through the western media because the western media is controlled by this same elitist group, and in fact the media serves as their propaganda mouthpiece in order to manipulate and control public opinion on these issues.

Watch this video, where former President John F. Kennedy, in a speech given back in 1961, exposed this globalist agenda, and it eventually cost him his life…:https://youtu.be/xhZk8ronces
The American people need to understand and realize that there is a Bankster oligarchy which has over the last 154 years completely taken over our government; and that the White House itself, especially but not limited to this Obama administration, has become the mouthpiece for this Bankster oligarchy, in their efforts to establish a fascist controlled One World Government and monetary system.
Wake up America and learn the history behind how you have been lied to for the last hundred 54 years!

In addition to the article below, here is another article you will want to read:

These are truly the days that our Lord warned us about:
Luke 21:25-36
 
The Coming of the Son of Man
25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
 
The Parable of the Fig Tree
29 Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. 30 When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near. 31 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
 
The Importance of Watching
34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy[a] to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

So in view of all this, what should our response be as Christians?

We are God’s Watchmen on the Wall; and as Christian intercessors, it is our job to watch and pray and to warn the people of what’s coming upon the earth.

The Bible tells us that judgment always begins in the household of God (1 Peter 4:17); and so this is where we, as Christians, begin by getting our own affairs in order with God.

2 Chronicles 7:14
 
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.

As Christians, we are also God’s occupational force in the year, and it is our job as well to occupy until He comes (Luke 19:13).

The battleground of the mind: Carnal thinking versus absolute obedience to God’s Word…

image

Take control of your thoughts 

“For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim 1:7)
The word “sound” is derived from the Greek word “sorphronismos” which means self-control, which by the way is also one of the fruits of the Spirit.
“Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalt itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity EVERY thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Cor 10:5)
Taking over the fleshly impulses of our mind requires discipline of mind and of spirit; it requires our absolute obedience to the word of God.
We are to treat God’s Word as our “Operations Manual” and “Instructional Guidebook” through troubled waters.
Even Jesus said “why do you call me Lord, if you’re not doing what I’m telling you to do” (Luke 6:46).
And in Matthew 7:24-27 we read:
Jesus speaking:
Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.  
Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.
But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.
When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
The battleground in this Christian walk always starts in the mind; and that is always where Satan’s fiery darts are aimed at, in order to get you off course and focused upon anything and everything, but God!

Graham Cooke

It’s really important that our way of thinking brings us into a place of favor, and that your way of thinking gets revenge on the enemy for all the negative stuff he made you think.

Your mindset must become such a place of majesty in Jesus that the enemy is scared of what you are thinking about.

If he is scared of what you are thinking, he is going to be petrified about what comes out of your mouth, and then he is going to be terrified of what your thinking is going to empower you to do in this world! (from Mind Of A Saint)
