” For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned” Matthew 12:37
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
I always keep my dictionary and KJV Bible by my side to determine the real definition and Spiritual meaning of those words I might not fully comprehend or understand. However, in this article, I am being led beyond the dictionary and secular definitions. The Holy Spirit is revealing as “Modern Day Disciples” our spoken words become alive and represent a greater amount of information and depth, far beyond their secular meanings. And possess more power than we recognize or at times will understand or comprehend. This article will reveal why all the “Modern Day Disciples” should exercise deep discernment and caution before speaking or writing. (Matthew 12:35 – 36) “v35. 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. v36. But I say unto you, that every idle word that man shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father we give thanks to you Lord for all blessings and teachings you may have brought to us through the Holy Spirit. Father, we would ask that you build a hedge of protection around those who are reflecting your light into the world as Fishers of Men. Bring to them your wisdom and discernment strengthen them, Lord, fill them with your Love Father so they may continue doing your good work by reflecting your light deeply into this world. Bring discernment and knowledge to them, Lord, so they understand how to effectively use the spiritual Sword you have provided as a heavenly gift. This I pray in the name of YESHUA Amen and Amen.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
Secular writers use words to create original characters, describe dramatic situations and various depictions of life real and fictitious. Which as humans we can visualize as imaginations in our minds. Scholars use words to teach how to discern or interpret, and most of all stir our minds and memories into activity. Historians use words to capture events and describe our history that it might live on for future generations to study and understand our past societies and events.
I believe all Words should be spoken or written carefully and always with forethought, before being orated or written. I now caution the “Modern Day Disciples,” your spoken words will become alive and definitely, spiritual, and go beyond secular meanings. Scripture shows what the Holy Spirit reveals is meant to touch our soul with Living Words and when spoken or written will have a profound effect, on both the spirit and soul of those they are revealed to in ways we are unable, without the Holy Spirit, to comprehend, discern or understand. We must be wise in the choice of our words so they will awaken the soul of those we are approaching rather than repelling them.
The Holy Spirit reveals what power is behind our spoken and prayed words in Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. The Holy Spirit then reveals how to properly use the heavenly gifts of God in Eph. 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
Living words are more than just secular dictionary definitions. When accepted through the Holy Spirits tutorings, Living Words will couple
deeper meanings to our words and amplify them. For example, if I speak the word “WORK” the dictionary defines it as “labor, employment, occupation, Job, something produced using a particular material or tool. etc.” So when I take the word “WORK“ and assess it as a Living Word, I see it revealed as a series of specific items “sustenance, savings, success, achievements, self-worth, self-esteem, professionalism and more.” And on a spiritual level, it fills me with accomplishment, uplifting, joy, peace and draws me closer to Yeshua.
It reveals the effect it has on us spiritually as individuals and what effect it is going to present on the physical plane as well. It reveals everything which is occurring within our temple on the physical plane has already occurred within our spiritual realm.
Now with the understanding of the possible effects and consequences by using Living Words. It becomes very clear what power the Scriptures are relating
too and the wisdom we need to exercise when using “Living Words” “For the word of God is quick, powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12).
This statement reveals several things, “however” it identifies two specific things which verify my firm belief our spirit and soul exist as separate entities yet appear as one when the Lord defines the separation of our spirit and soul. Secondly, it shows the words I speak or write are more than secular definitions and we must be very careful of the intent we “foster and hold,” in our soul (mind, will and, emotions) when speaking or writing as those words have become alive. Titus 3:1-2 “Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work v2. To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men.”
Now understanding what has been revealed, it becomes very clear “why” as “Modern Day Disciples” we should never consider or use cursing as a form of communication in any circumstance. I am citing these scriptural verses to further clarify the power, behind, our Living Words, in Mark 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, “No man eat the fruit of thee hereafter forever.” And his disciples heard it. Mark 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. Then Peter in Mark 11:21 “And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away.”
It is here we gain the understanding of what and who the power is in our spoken and written words and why we need to be very careful, and definitely use our
discernment and wisdom, before setting our words in motion either verbally or written. I refer to Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, “Have faith in God.“ Mark 11:23 “For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea: and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass: he shall have whatsoever he saith.“ So it is in these verses we learn who is behind the power of our words and what is required to make them alive “Faith and God.”
Earlier in this article I stated and showed how Living Words have additional meanings and in doing so carry extra power. So when spoken in anger or through disdain these words would act as curses to be fulfilled unwittingly on the part of those who spoke them and unintentionally held contempt in their heart, thus unknowingly will put forth a curse. Understand once the spoken words of Jesus are applied to our Living Words and are spoken as a curse, it will have set in motion, when we don’t use our wisdom and discernment, events we have no way of controlling or knowing the harm as a result. 1Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.
Something to remember, once a curse goes out it must complete its mission, and if unable, it returns to the one who sent it out (knowingly or unknowingly) and that person will sustain seven times greater discomfort (Luke 11:25 “Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” Also, recognize you do not need to cognitively speak the curse into being, a curse can be developed by anyone not actually understanding what they are creating when they talk using Living Words through contempt or scorn, which they at that moment have no doubt and believe to be true through anger. The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh. Proverbs 11:17
The lack of discernment and understanding becomes a gateway for the enemy to use his evil against us, as there is no controlling the tongue pointed out in James 3:8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is unruly evil, full of deadly poison. James 3:9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
The Living Word is not just extended to the New Testament, as God’s Word is still alive in the Old Testament and applies to God’s Law’s as they were written, Matt. 24:35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass
away.“ especially those outlining curses. In Deuteronomy 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: Those curses are listed in Deuteronomy 28:16 to 67. Which I believe the world as it stands apart from God and His commandments is currently suffering and growing deeper into those described curses. Through what is described in Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
When we take Living Words lightly and do not recognize, how through our abuse of them, we won’t realize what actions have been set in place and what the eventual consequences will be on others and ourselves. Once we realize what is occurring we should find the answer of why and how to rectify it in Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever.
It becomes apparent what action must be taken to rectify this position and know not all will return to the truth or will be willing to accept the truth. As they will remain trapped in their own vanities and imaginations remaining in the darkness of their hearts. The answer caution must be taken when speaking or writing, but most of all know your exact position with God, not some justified or rationalized belief supported by vanities and imaginations. We are instructed in James 1:19 “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:” James 1:20 “for the wrath of man worketh not to the righteousness of God.“

CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert
I am going to close by using Matthew Henry’s commentary on John 8:41 – 47 to explain how easy it is for Satan to work in our lives, if we are not vigilant with our thought process. Matthew Henry (1662 -1774) ” Satan prompts men to excesses by which they murder themselves and others, while what he puts into the mind tends to ruin men’s souls. He is the great promoter of falsehood of every kind. He is a liar, all his temptations are carried on by his calling evil good, and good evil, and promising freedom in sin. He is the author of all lies; whom liars resemble and obey, with whom all liars shall have their portion forever. The special lusts of the devil are spiritual wickedness, the lusts of the mind, and corrupt reasonings, pride and envy, wrath and malice, enmity to good, and enticing others to evil. By the truth, here understand the revealed will of God as to the salvation of men by Yeshua, the truth Yeshua was now preaching, and which the Jews opposed.“
The key I believe Modern Day Disciples should draw from this commentary is in the first two sentences. What evil action are we exposing our souls too when we lose control over our position in spirituality and open the door to evil ever so slightly? I recognize nobody in the flesh can be 100%, we are all going to be tempted and at times weak. What I am attempting to explain is it is going to occur and when it does use the knowledge gained to stop it and correct your position in it as quickly as you can knowing no one has a pass. Know your position within your walk and be truthful to it. If you err admit it and correct it. We must walk as examples and in all things demonstrate God’s forgiving Love and Compassion.
“Please,” remember these writings are sent as warnings to those willing to read and use them to assess their real position in following Yeshua’s footsteps. They are offered without any judgment or condemnation to any individual or church leader.
It is with a gentle heart I received this message, and with the same kind heart, I pray you will receive it and will be edified in your walk. I pray that the Holy Spirit will fill all with his discernment to recognize all Living Words and teach all how to use them within the Love of God The Father, in the name of Yeshua, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit Amen, and Amen.
