Anyone who is never at fault in what they say – is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check. When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water; From the 3rd Chapter of James.
But what about the power of words over another if rarely used or never heard? What words are those my friend? How can the words have any power if you never speak them I am asked? What are the the implied inferences of never saying or hearing I love you or you look good today, or job well done? How about Government takeovers where no one says anything? Do you awaken one morning to find your nation gone? What about the 90% or so American‘s who say they believe in God, an all powerful God and yet have no confidence in the Word of God or His power? Why has government become your god and you do pay credence to a wayward Communist agenda and you stay silent? What kind of backbone do you have and why do you remain cowards in the face of adversity? I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME! OK I want you to go to the heads of government and tell them THUS SAYS THE LORD, LET MY PEOPLE GO! Not me Lord I don’t have any power. I don’t want the government to rain down on me. There are frankly a whole lot of people who call themselves Christian that are in truth only church goers. YOU SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION FOR MY NAME”S SAKE! Don’t you put a finger in my face you, you, radical. Look around you can you see what has happened to your country that was founded in the fear and admonition of the Lord? You have allowed God to be thrown out of your schools, your government, your freedom of speech, your holidays, your edifices, books, media etc,etc. Fragment the people, make them dependent upon government, tell them what to eat, read, watch on television, learn through educational systems, hear or read on the items of news reporting. Short of a Godly intervention you are living in a time when all the treasure and blood of our Forefathers has been wasted and meekly given away to those few power brokers that care not for you but rather see you as a necessary evil to carryout their menial chores and oh by the way we don’t need so many of you so we will also control who lives or dies.
In these times of induced racial tensions I, this lily white writer does stand in awe of the many Black Pastors who boldly stand on the Word of God and declare without fear the Truth while all the nicely nice neighborhood Pastors don’t even have the guts to tell their congregations anything of political events or wrongs in our society instead clamoring about the Word that has no effect or practical application in daily living. Can’t lose that 501 (c) 3 status you know. How about the Black Police Officers and Sheriffs who strongly stand on conviction of law in the face of possible fallout? I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you this day that you will quickly perish from the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. You will not live there long but will certainly be destroyed. How many faithful will Jesus find upon returning to earth? Is this not a question He himself asked.? There needs to be a call to repentance in this nation and its wayward ways and it is high time Church leadership do the Shepherding duty to which they are called and Protect and Edify their Flocks. Sometimes calling myself Christian sickens me, So Again, I ask what about the power of Words never spoken or heard?
