Don’t Joke Against The Word

Don’t Joke Against

The Word!

 


“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).

 


       Some Christians, in their confessions, are sometimes positive, and some other times negative, and that’s the reasonthey experience “ups” and “downs” in their lives. Having made a wrong confession they’d say: “I didn’t really mean what I said,” or “I was only joking when I said that.” Well, in the realm of the spirit, you have what you say, whether or not you meant it. In Mark 11:23, Jesus didn’t say “you shall have what you mean,” He said “you shall have what you say.”


       If you must make any joke, let it be positive, and don’t joke against the Word. Don’t make careless statements for they’ll produce results for you. That’s why you must say only what you mean, and be sure it’s consistent with the Word.


       Jesus said “by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” In the realm of the spirit, words are extremely important. Interpreting the Master’s words above literally means, a man will go to heaven or hell because of what he said or didn’t say. But beyond that, your life is the character of your words. If a man’s words are confusing, his life will be confusing. In the same way, if a man’s words are wholesome, his life will be wholesome. This is why you must watch what you say!


Prayer


Dear Father,

thank You for teaching me about the power of my words. Through your Word, and by your Spirit, I’m culturing my tongue to speak only faith-filled words! No unwholesome communication is allowed to proceed from my mouth. I speak only life-giving words that are consistent with your plans and purposes for my life, and I declare that my future is secure in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
