Do you use your words to build up or tear down? Do you use your words as a sword to keep people away when you are triggered, to silence the uprising in yourself, by cutting others down or silencing them?
“The power of life and death is in the tongue”
When the Spirit of the Living God is in you, there is fruit that shows the nature of the spirit in you: either the spirit of the world or the Spirit of God who is LOVE. The first fruit of Love is patience and kindness (1 Cor 13) bearing all things of Truth, believing all things of God and knowing His Spirit in you that is Love, Peace, Joy, Goodness, Gentleness, Kindness, Patience, full of Fatith and Self-control.
When we lash out, or use our tongue to silence someone because we are disturbed, convicted, triggered, projecting our introjects, blaming, shaming, cutting down, shutting down our own internal discomfort, conviction from the Holy Spirit, hidden resentments, bitterness, anger, past history, childhood hurts, etc., we are asleep at the wheel, unconscious of the Holy One, still dead in places, still holding back parts or pieces of ourself from the Holy Spirit and fire of God. We may think we are born again, but words that proceed from the heart will show us what spirit is residing in our heart so we can turn again to God, repent and receive forgiveness and redemption, as many times as it takes to wake up and receive the Light of Christ in every dark, hidden place within us.
Jesus said we MUST be born again of God to see the Kingdom (God’s Part); we must become like children to enter the Kingdom (our part). Only the Power of the Holy Spirit can take us from the dominion of darkness and transfer us into the Kingdom of the Beloved Son to do the Will of the Father instead of unconsciously or consciously doing the work of the father of lies.
Only we can choose to die to the old nature of the world man and be born anew from Above of the heavenly man, who came to earth to take our “old man” to the cross and resurrect our “new man” in the image and likeness of God. It is available for ALL but all have to individually come and receive. “Come to Me and I will give you rest; yoke with Me, learn from Me, and receive rest for your soul, ease (grace) and light (glory)” (Matthew 11:28-29 paraphrase).
Jesus gives us all the keys to the Kingdom, but we have to USE THEM, not just know ABOUT them. When revelation comes to us we have to WALK IT OUT in actuality to BE IT, live it, and move in it.
We have to choose to die with Jesus to the old nature and the Spirit of God resurrects Christ’s nature in us so we can begin to look like our Father again instead of resembling the father of lies and his synagogue of satan. The Church is the One Body of Christ with the One Spirit of God. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, raises us from the dead, from unconsciousness of God which is conscious of the devil, to become The Church of the First-Borns from the Dead; no longer under satan’s power; only under God our Father, the Creator of heaven and earth.
Christ in you is a new heaven, the new wine, the River of Water of Life that transforms your spirit into the New Wine of Christ in you! Holy Spirit forms the Bread of Life in you; the Word made flesh in you!
The law KILLS; the Spirit gives Life! We die to the laws of sin and death; we resurrect with the Spirit of God who gives us NEW LIFE!
We take the New Married Name when Christ comes in you! We take our real Father’s Nature–Love–and let the father of lies’ unloving nature pass away–die–be nailed to the cross and stay cursed on the tree so the ONLY nature we bring forth is the divine nature of our Father and the Lamb!
The Word made flesh dwells in those who are born again; written on our heart and mind by the Holy Spirit and fire of God. The law kills; but the Spirit gives Life and Life more abundant and full! We use words that give LIFE and BLESSINGS to others and ourself; words that uplift, encourage, strengthen, build up instead of hurt, heal instead of wound, inspire instead of tear down; neither giving offense or taking defensive positions–instead life-giving position. We take the loving position of a heart humbled and resting in Christ in God. Those who receive abundant Life without going through suffering, fruit pride; while those who go THROUGH the fire and floods into the promised land of abundance, wealth, riches and treasures of the GLORY OF CHRIST in God, fruit great GRATITUDE.
The “old man” had hidden treasure in a clay jar that broke for all, so all could partake of His Resurrection Treasure. The One New Man is Christ in you–God’s Life, Love, Light, and Spirit resurrected in you. Our new wine is our Father and the Lamb’s Holy Spirit River that comes down from heaven out of God to fill you with the Water of Life that transforms your body water into the new wine of heaven to transform your spirit and soul and body into a new earth where righteousness dwells!
