We should as believers of the Gospel ,,at times should go on a TONGUE FAST..because what comes out of some people mouths are damaging to themselves and others..when we think that we should say something thats the more that we should shut up
(1) Preachers, because they can cause tremendous damage (v1-5)
(2) Our speech, because of the great harm it will do (v5b-8) more than that
(3) Our hearts, because we are not who we should be. (v9-12
That kind of stuff weakens the church. Poor leadership weakens the youth group or the Bible study. Vicars and other leaders have to wake up to the harm they can do with a life that doesn’t match the teaching, or with teaching that is off beam
We frequently encounter Christian fantasy especially in the Full-Gospel Movement.
Truth - Deut. 32:4, A God of truth. He is the God of Truth. If you are of God, then truth will flow thru your mouth. Some are not true worshipers but are hypocrites that are putting on a religious show that stinks in God's nostrils.
Lies - Num. 23:19, God is not a man that He should lie. God doesn't lie but man does. There are a lot of pat phrases in the Christian world that are not true when put to the test. As Earline says, you burn while you learn. It is a soulish prophesy that frequently ends with thus saith the Lord. If you say your soulish prophesy is from God, then you are lying about God.
Christian Fables And Cliches - There are many fables and cliches (tradition) that are passed off as the Gospel. Generally, these are sayings that make you fell good.
Deliverance Myths - There is much ignorance and many myths about deliverance. Deliverance is the most misunderstood part of the Christian life. Deliverance is the most controversial and unpopular part of the Christian life.
Prophecy Myths - Prophecies can be a blessing or a curse. The most danger for abuse lies in personal prophecy. Charismatic witches use personal prophecy to control others.
The true prophet does not make any mistakes. All of his prophecies come true. In the Old Testament, if the prophet missed God, he was stoned (Deut. 13:1-5, 18:20). I wonder what would happen if we killed the false prophets today
There are two ways that we can curse another person: thought or speaking. We can pray a psychic prayer or we can speak against another person either in our thoughts or out loud. We need to be careful what we think and speak, as well as what we do. The words we think or speak go out into the air and they have power to do good or evil.
GOD CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH WITH WHAT CAME FROM HIS MOUTH..WHAT ARE WE CREATING WITH OURS??
Only three things can control a man's tongue,
A. The grace of God.
B. Cutting the tongue from a man's mouth.
