Guard your mouth.
James says; For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
If we understand correctly that we are word, made in the image of the Son of God, that “in the beginning was the word the word was with God and the word was God, He was in the beginning with God”. If we are transformed into His self same image by Word and Spirit, then it is in this way we are offspring of the Father. That when we see Him as He is? (Word) Then that is what we become. Word, like the only Begotten. This is it. (John 1.1)
When that is fulfilled then we do the works of the Father too. Word. It is called our Testimony.
If we use word correctly, the thing that we speak is true the moment we speak it. Even as Jesus said in His day “if I had not come and did the works no other man has done, they would have excuse for their sin, but now they have no excuses. You see he healed and raised from the dead with His words.
And from John 1. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten [h]Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him”. To declare is to speak so yes, He turned the things of the Father into words. That’s why the Son said “those who have seen Me have seen the Father. When we make these declarations, we take on the family business and share in the work of salvation and fulfill the words of Jesus where He said “and greater works shall you do because I go to the Father. That’s because that is where we take you. Even as Paul pleaded “be ye reconciled” for the same cause.
The Elect are being groomed with such and show forth our liniege with clarity by the things that we say so that you can join us. For if you are not faithful in what belongs to another, who will give you what is your own. We found out it’s the same thing. What’s His is ours and outs are yours if you have ears to hear.
Paul explains in Ephesians that this is our goal, Christ-like-ness, as seen here: 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the [e]edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect person, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”. And he goes on to say to “23 be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created just like God, in true righteousness and holiness”. So you know this is expected of us.
This gift however is not given to many. Because if it was, all the ugly thoughts from the heart, transposed into words, taking on a form from the words of your mouth, would be monstrous and murderous. As James our brother said “19 [c]So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God”. And “21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and [d]overflow of wickedness (from your mouth), and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls”. Yes it is Gods words that saves your inward parts.
For this reason we impart word too. In this way we are “doers of the word“. How do you do word? You repeat it. We call it the gospel and the good news, the way of salvation.
In truth, Satan knows that as long as you transpose your hates and fears into words, you empower him, by your inversion from faith, love and trust in the almighty God, to a fallen form of fear, fear being the opposing spiritual polarity. Your hates and fear comes into reality because you empowered it to be so.
That is why Satan and all his entities promulgate fear and hate, because it glorifies them. This is also why he has people stupidly repeat the words they hear in songs. In this way their minds are scripted. We however have another source for our scripting, scripture.
We are our words, and shall be judged accordingly, if we don’t judge ourselves, purify our thoughts and words and come clean in our lifetimes. We do this with word too. It’s called, confessions. You come clean with words in that way. Even as Ephesians talks of the washing of the water by word. That if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth.
Jude talks about the Lord with His Elect coming of the calling we all should strive for “15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are [i]sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.”
It is the Elect that have to understand this perfectly clear to execute judgment and participate in this judgment spoken by Enoch and reiterated by Jude, to be carried out by the elect of the things that they say.
If you examine the allegations on the wicked in that text, not one of them was a physical action, however they will be judged for that too. Even as Jesus said “if you think it in your heart, you are guilty. So too these perish in their shame.
Here are some promises to understand and apply for those of us who have ears to hear.
Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? Word
And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own? Word.
“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give those of the household food in due season? We are.
His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.” Of being saturated in His Word
And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give the household their portion of food in due season?
We hope you are getting this. This is “food in due season”, of what we need when we need it for our enrichment on being godly.
Even as scripture says that “we have an unction from the Holy One and we know all things”. Not that we know all things simultaneously, but we know what we need to know when we need to know it. Rest assured of this.
The Kingdom of God is at hand. This is the gospel of which we speak.
