00:00 good evening we're happy to be here
00:04 and we're part of the Camerillo Healing
00:08 Rooms and I'm Alex Kathryn good evening
00:14 and so tonight we're gonna talk about
00:17 live and die by the power of your tongue
00:20 and we're gonna talk about why the
00:23 tongue is so powerful and why there is
00:26 authority of words just a recap last
00:29 week we talked about decorating
00:32 declarations of the Word of God so as I
00:35 mentioned last week we don't go around
00:37 in our daily lives just declare and
00:39 decree in God's Word through general
00:41 conversation but through general
00:43 conversation whether it's your
00:45 co-workers or families we're speaking
00:47 words so those words we want to make
00:50 sure they're life-giving words because
00:53 words are powerful so why focus on the
00:57 tongue Alex okay so why is the tongue so
01:01 powerful okay so well it's amazing
01:07 because it's such a small part of our
01:10 body right but it's so powerful and so
01:17 God has a sense of humor doesn't he
01:20 so these are some bullet points that I
01:25 wrote down there's so many that you can
01:28 put down it would be endless one of the
01:31 first reasons is because we're made in
01:33 His image in dorso and were his children
01:37 as well as heirs so what is an heir he's
01:42 someone that it has the the right to
01:47 inheritance so everything that God had
01:51 in Christ is ours today I mean that's
01:54 the mind blow in itself and then on top
01:56 of that we're co-heirs with Christ so
02:00 because we're remain His image and he
02:03 spoke the universe into existence in
02:07 just as chapter one we have that same
02:10 power inside of us now we're not making
02:13 constellations or planets are you know
02:16 but here on earth he's given us
02:19 authority and he wants us to rule so
02:24 once you read number two okay one of the
02:28 things is about the tongue it is the
02:30 most creative part of our beam just like
02:33 God when he created the universe and man
02:36 he said believe it or not it's the same
02:38 power it's in our tongues on earth so
02:40 just like Jesus Christ of the Lord or
02:43 the God Almighty in the beginning spoke
02:46 the word and formed the Stars and
02:50 everything on the universe so like we
02:53 with our power we have the same power of
02:55 bringing forth blessings or cursings
02:57 upon us or Potter family on our work so
03:02 there is the same power as God has in
03:05 his time we have in ours
03:08 so in weird a war against the enemy with
03:12 our words but there's a condition
03:18 obviously right part of it is we need to
03:23 be abiding in his word be living in its
03:27 word we have to make Jesus our passion
03:29 the Word of God our passion otherwise
03:31 guess what it just doesn't come out of
03:34 our mouth the way that God wants us to
03:36 so it's important we're abiding in Jesus
03:39 said you know abiding in his word and
03:44 obviously he is the Lord of our life so
03:47 those are the conditions so if he is
03:50 Lord of you've received Christ as your
03:52 Savior
03:54 and he is Lord of your life pretty much
03:57 anyone can walk in this power anybody
04:01 because he's not a respecter of persons
04:05 we can use it as a instrument of
04:07 blessing people and as we get through
04:11 these scriptures will elaborate on that
04:13 that more and Alice can elaborate on
04:15 that so this is really powerful second
04:18 Peter chapter 1 verse 3 and for His
04:21 divine power has given us everything we
04:25 need for a godly life through our
04:26 knowledge of him Christ who called us by
04:31 his own glory and goodness through these
04:34 he's given us his very great and
04:36 precious promises so that through them
04:38 you may participate in the divine nature
04:41 having escaped the corruption in the
04:43 world caused by evil desires so I'm
04:45 gonna focus on he has given us
04:47 everything we need for a godly life so
04:52 you gotta ask well where is it where is
04:56 everything we need you know and so
04:59 believe it or not it's in your mouth
05:03 it's because I'll back up so obviously
05:10 whatever is in your heart ends up coming
05:13 out of your mouth but the power of
05:16 creation it's amazing Genesis chapter 1
05:20 and 2 were made in His image and God
05:24 said let there be light he spoke it into
05:27 existence right and there was light
05:30 there was vegetation there was the moon
05:33 there were stars and he did all of that
05:39 by speaking it so there's a phenomenal
05:42 book out there it's a free download
05:43 actually we have it in the back too
05:45 right
05:46 so it's called Charles Capps the
05:48 creative power of the tongue
05:50 and it's it's a great study it's it's a
05:54 phenomenal study and he had a revelation
05:56 about it and when I saw that the first
05:58 time it was like what you know this is
06:01 like this is pretty awesome the fact
06:05 that we can speak things and and this
06:08 goes way beyond like what we're used to
06:13 I mean there's a science behind it
06:15 they've done Studies on speaking water
06:17 cursing the water cursing or blessing
06:20 the water and certain things have
06:22 happened to the water I have the article
06:25 I didn't bring it with me tonight
06:26 but the fact that we have everything we
06:32 need for a godly life so the important
06:37 thing is just putting into your heart
06:40 you know part of prayer is obviously
06:43 asking petitioning God but the other
06:45 part of prayer is saying speaking it
06:48 like Mark 11 22 to 24 where he Jesus
06:52 says say to the mountain so go ahead
06:55 Kevin so with the use of our tongues we
07:00 can reign in life that's Romans 5:17 for
07:03 if by the trespass of one man man death
07:07 reigned through that one man how much
07:10 more of those who receive God's abundant
07:12 provision of grace and of the gift of
07:15 righteousness reign in life through the
07:17 one man Jesus Christ
07:18 you can expound on this so we're
07:22 supposed to reign we're supposed to not
07:26 be dominated by the enemy but we're
07:28 supposed to dominate the enemy so Luke
07:33 10:19 Jesus said to his disciples behold
07:35 I've given you authority and power to
07:38 tread on serpents and scorpions over the
07:40 demonic ants and nothing shall by any
07:44 means hurt you so if we really believe
07:47 that we're gonna take that to heart so
07:49 that we've got so many powerful tools
07:52 you know the and so part of the reason
08:00 that we can reign in life is because
08:01 Jesus already done it he's already he's
08:04 the victorious one he's the one that was
08:07 buried ascended into heaven victoriously
08:10 and obviously from the grave and because
08:13 he said that and because of what he did
08:16 on the cross where he said it is
08:17 finished and he's completed all the
08:21 requirements that were in the Old
08:22 Testament so he said it is finished and
08:24 then he goes on to tell his disciples in
08:27 Matthew 28
08:28 he said all Authority has been given
08:32 unto me therefore go and so when he said
08:38 that it's delegated power to the
08:40 Church that's you and I jesus also says
08:44 you have the authority to bind and loose
08:46 you have you have what is your tongue
08:50 mm-hmm you have you in your tongue so
08:54 basically they're the power to bind and
08:58 loose can't come through your arms you
09:01 can't come through your feet you can't
09:03 come through your eyes or ears it has to
09:07 come through your worse there's power in
09:09 your words so good so too we have a lot
09:16 of scripture here but let's put into
09:18 practicality since you can always go and
09:20 have in your life what you believe for
09:23 and say that's the important thing
09:26 when you first wake up in the morning
09:28 you have a choice remember it says take
09:30 every thought captive and you're in your
09:34 mind and in the morning you might wake
09:36 up in a bad mood but you make a choice
09:39 to greet people good morning how are you
09:41 doing or you have a choice to grumble at
09:43 them and start complaining about
09:45 everything when you go into the grocery
09:48 store you have a choice to either be
09:51 silent and to smooth through the line
09:54 the grocery stores silently not say
09:56 anything just keeping to yourself or you
09:59 have a choice to say hey how's your day
10:01 going you know how long have you worked
10:03 here awesome well thank you for serving
10:06 me have an awesome day be blessed
10:08 tonight anywhere you go in life you have
10:10 the opportunity to speak blessings over
10:13 people even in your workplace I'm sure
10:16 everybody has encountered those certain
10:19 people that that just kind of rub you
10:22 the wrong way you have a choice to
10:24 either sit around and gossip about that
10:29 person or you have a choice to start
10:31 praying for them and declare blessings
10:34 over them you have a choice with your
10:36 children when they're revenue the wrong
10:38 way or continuing with you to either
10:41 fight back in words because you are in
10:45 the authority over your children or you
10:47 have a choice to use your wisdom
10:49 understanding a knowledge to go a bit
10:52 deeper say Wow
10:53 is really bothering my child that he's
10:55 just acting this way and to start
10:58 speaking blessings there is um a tribe
11:02 over in Africa and when they correct
11:04 their children they'll gather round all
11:07 the elders or gather around and instead
11:10 of condemning this child for whatever he
11:12 did wrong they will just start speaking
11:14 blessings like you're awesome you're
11:16 great you have a great destiny and we
11:19 need to do that with our children we
11:20 need to do that with anybody that we
11:22 come in contact we need to be able to
11:24 see the goodness in anybody and point it
11:26 out because a lot of times people are so
11:29 trampled down by life and life
11:32 situations that they can't see the
11:36 goodness in their selves so it's really
11:38 our our responsibility because we carry
11:43 the Godhead in us to show them how
11:47 beautiful they are and it's easy to say
11:50 and it's easy to like read these
11:52 scriptures and it's easy to take all the
11:55 stuff that's out on social media and say
11:57 yes you know everybody's equal and we're
11:59 all good and let's just love everybody
12:02 well yeah it's easy to say but we have
12:04 to walk in it and walking in it day in
12:07 and day out can be a challenge for a lot
12:10 of us but I I trust that as you do this
12:13 day in and day out
12:15 then add the abundance of your heart
12:17 it'll just become easier and easier to
12:19 where you're just shedding light on
12:21 everybody and it doesn't mean you're
12:23 shedding light with scriptures and
12:25 praise the Lord hallelujah you know
12:26 you're dancing you know in Trader Joe's
12:29 but you know you're going along and you
12:32 know I go along and I see cool shoes on
12:35 somebody I won't go up to a stranger say
12:37 my gosh shoes are awesome shoes where'd
12:38 you get them like wow I don't know they
12:40 don't be taking off the shoe trying to
12:42 figure out what kind of brand it is I
12:44 just made a beautiful connection with
12:46 that person and when we leave I can say
12:48 hey have a awesome day
12:50 you know that person might have had a
12:52 really rough day but because I reached
12:55 out to them not that I had intentionally
12:58 I just like hey I like those shoes
12:59 where'd you get them
13:01 they could be uplifted and that's that's
13:03 the thing is we have to be so aware of
13:07 other people around us and what they're
13:09 going through and not to get into a rut
13:13 of following the herd right we are to
13:17 follow Jesus Christ and speak life we
13:20 are to give life in all situations and
13:23 it's like you know in the innocence the
13:26 opposite to when we want to speak life
13:28 but we also know we need to know when to
13:31 hold our tongue and I think that can be
13:34 more of a challenge to some people than
13:36 speaking there's this time some people
13:39 will be blurting out to you saying
13:43 things they should be saying or just you
13:45 know they're just complaining or
13:46 whatever and it just might be your job
13:51 to hold your tongue and just say hey you
13:54 know I'll pray for you and or just just
13:57 listen sometimes people just need to be
14:00 listen it doesn't mean you're coming
14:01 agreement with them but you listen to
14:04 them we need to get away from always
14:07 trying to be one up on that other person
14:10 like if somebody had a bad day at the at
14:13 the job and I go my boss has said then
14:16 the other person is trimming oh yeah my
14:17 boss is this and all of a sudden they're
14:19 like having this big debate on who's
14:21 boss is the worst but so we can't get
14:23 involved we cannot we cannot come in
14:26 agreement with that type of conversation
14:28 because it is the power of the tongue so
14:30 in life as you go along
14:33 just choose be intentional be extremely
14:38 aware what's coming out of your mouth
14:40 because like the scripture says all the
14:42 abundance of your heart your mouth will
14:44 speak so anyways so and surprise what's
14:50 in your heart
14:51 so we're talking about live living and
14:54 dying by the power of your tongue so
14:58 what's packed in your heart or what's
15:01 stored in your heart and the heart in
15:04 the Bible is not just your physical
15:06 heart here right it's actually your
15:09 spirit heart and spirit are almost
15:11 synonymous so what's inside of you
15:14 eventually come out of your mouth and so
15:18 Luke 6:45 you offsprings of vipers how
15:23 can you speak good things when you are
15:25 evil for out of the fullness the
15:28 overflow of their super abundance of the
15:30 heart the mouth speaks and I think one
15:33 of the beautiful things about this is
15:35 that there are times when personally I
15:39 will say stuff or like react you know
15:43 not thinking I'm just reacting and
15:45 blurting out and I'll catch myself like
15:48 wow that was really ugly and I but you
15:53 know Lord thank you for showing me that
15:55 that it was ugliness coming out of me
15:57 because then I can just repent and say
15:59 okay Lord show me and help me how to
16:01 correct this issue whether it's with a
16:04 person or with a situation I'm in so if
16:07 you find yourself that you're just
16:09 blurting out things that you know you
16:11 shouldn't just thank God that you are
16:13 finally being aware that you're doing
16:15 things that you should be doing that's
16:16 the number one thing is just being aware
16:19 of how we're speaking in our daily life
16:23 so yes so so why we're focusing on the
16:30 tongue so tonight's message is the power
16:34 of your tongue and it's for life and or
16:37 death it's it's a two-edged of sword in
16:39 a sense so the question is are you
16:43 watching the words that come out of your
16:44 mouth something I do I practiced for
16:49 years decades and I'm not gonna say I'm
16:53 perfect at it but when you see negative
16:57 situation you try not to speak about it
17:01 you know and start telling people about
17:04 it yeah so like if you're if you're
17:08 starting to feel like a symptom in your
17:11 body you know you don't want to say oh
17:13 my gosh I'm getting sick you know you
17:15 call your friends not a good thing to do
17:17 and then on top of that you call 10
17:20 people to pray for you and who knows who
17:25 which one of them is like beliefs you
17:28 know
17:28 so you could have a lot of people
17:30 doubting that are in that prayer chain
17:33 so a smart thing to do this comes the
17:35 Camry weekly post and get prayed for
17:38 here but so if if you like yeah I'll
17:45 just use sickness as a as an example so
17:48 the first thing you should do is is
17:52 because the Holy Spirit's inside you
17:55 just say Lord you know what's happening
17:57 here you know what do what is this is
17:59 this demonic this is actually a really
18:01 good thing to do is this demonic is this
18:05 because of me or I mean that's the first
18:11 thing we should pray about you know is
18:13 it is it just something because I'm
18:15 eating wrong or is it because I am is a
18:20 lot of torment if sickness and Richard
18:23 knows a lot about that I believe
18:25 personally it's all demonic ninety five
18:29 ninety percent of it so there's
18:32 something in the bloodline and so we can
18:38 rise up so obviously and the thing is
18:41 what I typically do is I'll take
18:44 communion you know I'll bring that
18:46 before the Lord that's the first person
18:48 you should make agreement with why
18:50 because he knows everything he's got the
18:52 all the answers and so he knows your
18:54 heart he's the Creator and so he's the
18:57 one that can bring wholeness upon you
19:01 whether it's whether it's by another
19:04 person praying for you a word you know
19:08 in God yes he uses doctors as well of
19:10 course but the thing is is you want to
19:14 be very circumspect about what you speak
19:17 into the air into the atmosphere why
19:20 because Jesus says my words are spirit
19:23 and they are life now if he said that
19:26 you can say the same about your words
19:28 their spirit they're like packages that
19:32 go out and they've got it they have to
19:36 accomplish what you spoke out of your
19:39 mouth
19:40 it has to happen that's just the way
19:43 that God decided and I can I can
19:46 obviously give you scriptures but so
19:51 these are like powerful three powerful
19:54 verses in Genesis 1:26 228 God wanted us
20:00 to rule he wanted man to rule he gave
20:03 all authority on this earth to us first
20:07 he gave to Adam and Eve God's not
20:09 insecure about his power I mean that
20:11 just shows how secure he is so he made
20:15 us you and I in his image that's a
20:18 mind-blower if you really think about
20:20 that but it's also referred to Genesis
20:25 1:26 and 2228 as the Dominion mandate so
20:29 when Jesus was around with John the
20:32 Baptist the thing they preached on
20:35 taught more than anything their whole
20:37 message was what the kingdom of God so
20:41 that from the first chapter of Genesis
20:44 to the end of the book God's all about
20:48 Dominion and so the kingdom of God is
20:52 dominating so in other words he wants us
20:55 to dominate life so and we talked about
21:00 Romans 5:17 that were supposed to reign
21:04 but this is a awesome Scripture Psalms
21:07 one 15 16 the highest heavens belong to
21:11 the Lord but the earth is given to
21:14 mankind so what does that mean what does
21:18 that mean to you Katherine the highest
21:21 heavens belong to the Lord but the earth
21:22 has been given to mankind it means that
21:24 we are to take dominion over the earth
21:29 and use it to his glory in all in all
21:34 areas of life yeah this is this is mind
21:38 shifting it's like a different ambience
21:41 it's a different temperature when we
21:43 talk about this so think about this the
21:48 father is in heaven Jesus is at his
21:51 right hand he's already accomplished
21:53 everything and so everything that we're
21:57 supposed to do on this earth has already
21:59 been given to us and so we are to
22:05 basically rule on this earth he's
22:09 Genesis chapter 1 Psalms 115 verse 16 I
22:13 believe David wrote that so he because
22:19 we're as children think about this - if
22:22 you have a family
22:23 let's say you have a huge bank account
22:26 and you have four sons and daughters and
22:30 you eventually write them into your will
22:34 okay we're going legalese right now I'm
22:36 talking about legal and because God's
22:39 Word is very legal you know it's it's we
22:42 have the law that we abide by in our
22:46 community here because there are laws
22:48 over our communities but God has his
22:51 laws in the Bible for our lives so he
22:57 wants us to operate with with that in
23:01 other words going back to what happens
23:05 is that the father or mother eventually
23:08 is going to pass away so they write
23:11 their kids into the will in that will
23:14 they're passing the inheritance of
23:17 typically I'm not saying all the time
23:20 because there's a lot of sibling rivalry
23:22 and sometimes parents can do strange
23:26 things that they don't even give their
23:30 their children any of the the the
23:36 blessings inheritance that they have so
23:38 typically they'll pass on things like
23:41 money in their bank accounts real estate
23:46 they might have some whatever fancy cars
23:50 I'm talking about you know I'm just
23:53 using like an analogy of like wealth
23:55 being passed on so and because there
24:00 you've got the four children and the
24:03 parent who's their parents they have a
24:07 right
24:07 that inheritance in the same way if this
24:11 makes any sense you have the right to
24:14 all the inheritance that Jesus had
24:17 because your co-heirs with him because
24:22 you're a child of God and the thing is
24:25 most of us in churches don't know this
24:29 we don't operate that miss we don't take
24:31 advantage of it therefore our prayers
24:34 are weak because we don't know who we
24:38 really aren't Christ that's one of the
24:40 most important things to know our
24:41 identity
24:42 good so enough said on that in proverbs
24:48 18:21 it says death and life are in the
24:51 power of the tongue the tongue has power
24:53 of life and death and those who love it
24:55 will eat its fruit this is super
25:00 powerful and the tongue in the words are
25:04 spoken over us can really exalt us to do
25:10 great things or it can really damage us
25:12 and I would just challenge you tonight
25:16 that for things that were spoken when I
25:20 what I've found it's a lot of things
25:22 that are spoken to to us as children
25:26 somehow we forget about it but it
25:29 carries on through there all our lives
25:30 so we don't maybe rise up to our full
25:33 potential or we might remember things
25:36 that were said to us in our childhood
25:39 whether it be through our parents or
25:43 siblings or other children and it's
25:46 always stuck with us and we have not
25:48 been able to release it because we're
25:50 believing in it we're coming to
25:51 agreement with it so it be I have
25:56 learned just to like take those sayings
25:59 and lay them down at the fit solji's
26:02 aside let him carry it and only believe
26:05 what the Word of God says and not
26:06 believe the lies that were spoken to us
26:08 because we were not a lot of things that
26:11 were that we struggle with in our
26:13 adulthood or it's already been formed
26:15 and kind of fashion in our childhood so
26:20 if there are things have been spoken to
26:22 over you as as children whether it be
26:24 through teachers you know like I said
26:27 parents siblings co-workers when you're
26:29 young you know just lay them at the foot
26:31 sole of Christ you know it's and he'll
26:34 take off all our burdens and I think a
26:36 lot of us like to hold on to some of the
26:39 stuff we feel like we have to carry it
26:41 but there is very power there is a lot
26:45 of power of life and death and if you're
26:48 going through like needing a job and
26:51 you've gone out on 20 interviews you'll
26:55 just come into agreement say well you
26:56 know I just I can't get a job can't get
26:58 a job and I just don't know what's going
26:59 on just can't get a job well you're
27:01 coming to agreement then you can't get a
27:03 job you guys switched around my awesome
27:06 job hasn't arrived yet you know there's
27:09 other ways the same I can't get a job it
27:13 just could be the right job hasn't
27:17 opened up yet that awesome job that God
27:19 has for me so that's what I mean by
27:21 being intentionally a baby of we're like
27:23 oh gosh I feel so tired today I used to
27:25 say that I'm really tired gosh I'm so
27:28 tired and I just have to stop saying it
27:29 because it's like in I'm tired because
27:31 I'm in coming to agreement that I'm
27:32 tired and it's like you need to just
27:34 turn around like wow I'm just I'm gonna
27:36 be full of energy today soon anyways
27:39 this be I think who all of this is to be
27:41 very as Alex says it's understanding who
27:45 we are in Christ the power that he has
27:48 given us cuz we are co-heirs were
27:50 citizens of the kingdom of God and to
27:52 know the power that we have in our time
27:54 so we're gonna move quickly now cuz it
27:57 looks like we only have what 15 minutes
27:59 so consider this you are saved by the
28:07 prayer of confession you made and you
28:10 can most of you would remember the tape
28:12 you receive the Lord you're saved
28:15 eternally according to the Word of God
28:18 by words you spoke typically about 40-50
28:22 words those words have
28:27 everything's recorded in heaven if you
28:30 think computers are awesome here
28:32 the the these servers in heaven go way
28:35 beyond it they could actually record
28:36 every thought you know and so every word
28:39 every thought and so you you made it
28:45 into God's kingdom you've been
28:47 transformed from darkness into life
28:49 because of a prayer of confession that
28:51 you made Romans 10:9 that says if you
28:54 confess with your mouth and believe in
28:56 your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord you
28:58 will be saved
28:59 and so and that's just a starting point
29:02 so you came into the kingdom by just a
29:05 prayer from your from your tongues or
29:08 from your tongue by your words and so
29:12 words carry Authority or you can say
29:15 there's Authority and words words carry
29:19 Authority and so that's pretty powerful
29:25 the kingdom God's the kingdom of God is
29:29 voice-activated okay yes we can do kind
29:34 and great things as a show of our love
29:36 but typically words are some of the most
29:40 powerful things that we can share with
29:42 other people you know whether it's
29:44 comfort prayer for healing encouragement
29:49 you know still a family member or your
29:52 spouse that you love them they go
29:55 they're huge go ahead Kevin
30:02 yeah so us Alexander mentioned that
30:05 we're gonna give an account to every
30:07 word because in Matthew 12:36 it says
30:10 but I tell you on the day of judgment
30:13 men will have to give account for every
30:16 idle inoperative non-working word they
30:19 speak that's pretty powerful if you stop
30:22 to think about it like he says is
30:24 everything in heaven is recorded you
30:27 know Jesus Christ knows every hair on
30:29 our hat so it's pretty phenomenal when
30:32 you start really thinking about the
30:33 awesomeness of all this so in the same
30:37 way that there's life in the words
30:38 there's also death and destruction
30:40 through words and we need to watch our
30:43 worse and I believe I I spoke on that
30:45 maybe words I've been spoken over to you
30:47 in childhood or in early adulthood or
30:50 even now you know through your spouse's
30:53 through co-workers so there's death in
30:57 our words too if you keep eating
30:59 somebody down if you keep telling
31:00 somebody you're so stupid they're gonna
31:02 end up believing that they're stupid if
31:04 you keep calling somebody an idiot
31:07 they're gonna display that there are
31:08 idiots I mean it's just it's so simple
31:13 but it's so profound that we just need
31:15 to change the way we communicate with
31:19 one another we really need to take every
31:23 word captive of what we speak out of our
31:26 mouth because it's so important and it's
31:29 so powerful and how we greet each other
31:33 I know for for just for instance for in
31:38 my life when my kids were young the Lord
31:41 wanted me to oice greet them a certain
31:43 way every single day and every single
31:45 day I give them a hug since their time
31:48 their little to even now says I love you
31:51 and Jesus loves you too that's the first
31:54 thing in the morning I want them to
31:57 realize no matter how much you know he
32:01 made my hair go the night before the day
32:05 before what we're facing I love you but
32:08 more than that I want them to know that
32:10 Jesus loves them no matter what's going
32:12 on your life
32:13 jesus loves you it's in the word and if
32:17 we can really just open up our spirits
32:20 to the love of God and knowing what he
32:22 has for us and the awesomeness then we
32:25 wouldn't let all the the woes of life
32:28 compact on us and beat us down we would
32:31 have that authority in our words to rise
32:34 up and come against the hand of the
32:36 enemy that's trying to put lies on us so
32:40 it's just it's so exciting when you take
32:43 the Word of God and put it into what I
32:46 I'm more the practicality you know you
32:49 love speaking the word and reading the
32:51 word I just kind of take the word munch
32:53 on it and like okay let's be practical
32:54 about it you know so it's like it's just
32:57 really it's just a really beautiful
32:59 thing when you start really putting it
33:01 into practice so proper 23:7 this is
33:05 powerful as a man thinketh so is he or
33:09 it's this is another translation for as
33:12 he thinks in his heart or as a man
33:17 thinks and then speaks so is he or he
33:22 brings it to pass that's the literal
33:24 meaning of propers 23:7 so so words are
33:32 powerful and you know there's people
33:34 that revelation about like daily
33:39 declarations I'm not saying I've done it
33:41 I've done on certain days but I don't I
33:43 don't do it every day but the two most
33:47 powerful is believe that or not one of
33:49 the names of Jesus is I am so you can
33:52 you can declare I am healed this is
33:55 powerful I've prayed this many times I'm
33:58 always in the right place at the right
33:59 time that's a good one especially if
34:04 you're salesman and you want to meet the
34:06 right people or maybe it's your wanting
34:09 to meet her spouse I'm always the right
34:11 place at the right time so and then
34:14 we're supposed to bless those we talked
34:17 about that bless those who persecute you
34:19 bless and do not curse
34:21 I believe that's in Peter
34:24 words are spirit words are spirit so
34:28 powerful John six my word is spirit into
34:30 those life words are in the heavens on
34:33 earth and in hell it's up there it's on
34:36 here and it's how do I know it's in hell
34:39 it says Philippians 2 says every eye
34:46 every every every one will bow and
34:49 confess that Jesus is Lord those in
34:52 heaven on earth and under the earth
34:54 words are everywhere
34:56 that is God's that is his language words
35:03 words and he created the lips to speak
35:07 those words and we either speaking death
35:09 or life Jesus rebukes Satan in the
35:14 religious crowd with his words and he
35:16 spoke life to many with the same Jesus
35:20 rose a dead with his words and he cast
35:22 out demons with his words
35:24 so no Zion 5511 says so my word will be
35:28 B which goes forth from my mouth it will
35:32 not return to me empty without
35:35 accomplishing what I desire and without
35:37 succeeding in matters for which I sent
35:40 it so in that respect if we're speaking
35:43 out God's words and we're making this
35:45 declarations from the word of the Lord
35:47 like we spoke about last week those
35:50 decorations those words from the from
35:53 the Bible then they're not going to come
35:54 back boy they will be fulfilled yeah so
35:58 there's there's a I can think of a book
36:04 was it okay he'll come to me
36:10 so going on so in James that's one of
36:14 the most powerful verses on the tongue
36:17 so we're talking about the blessing and
36:20 the power of life through your tongue
36:22 well James takes it in different
36:25 direction he talks about how it can
36:28 actually be in negative manner how it
36:33 can be used to destroy
36:36 so he said that the tongue is an unruly
36:41 evil set ablaze by hell okay so James
36:46 three to four we all often stumble and
36:49 fall and offend in many things and if
36:52 anyone does not offend in speech never
36:54 says the wrong saying things he is fully
36:57 developed character and a perfect man
36:59 able to control his whole body through
37:02 the tongue and to curb his entire nature
37:06 verse five so so the tongue is a little
37:10 member and he can boast of great things
37:12 see how much wood or how great a forest
37:16 a tiny spark can his set ablaze and the
37:19 tongue is a fire stop there the tongue
37:22 is a fire what the tongue is a fire the
37:26 tongue is a world of wickedness set
37:29 among our members contaminate and
37:32 depriving the whole body and setting on
37:35 fire the wheel of birth the cycle of
37:37 man's nature being itself ignited by
37:39 hell so what does that mean that means
37:44 that if someone speaking death over
37:49 themselves or others it's powerful stuff
37:53 and it's not going to be good at all and
37:55 it's it's amazing I could think of Elvis
38:01 Presley you know his mother passed away
38:03 at 42 and he I remember he with his own
38:08 mouth is he said I won't live beyond
38:11 what my mom lived and guess what he died
38:17 42 he died at 42 exact same age as his
38:21 mother so I'm just using that as one
38:24 analogy I mean there's there's so many
38:27 here just people don't realize that when
38:31 they're speaking things they just take
38:34 it for granted what they're speaking
38:36 verses like wow I'm speaking life here
38:39 and so we as believers as children of
38:43 God we've got to realize the Spirit of
38:46 God dwells in us Jesus dwells in us
38:49 so what would Jesus say in that
38:51 situation right and if you do a study in
38:55 the New Testament of Jesus words they're
38:58 powerful
39:00 he's never complaining he's not there's
39:03 nothing written in there coming up to
39:05 Peter hey Peter are you having a bad day
39:07 right so he's he was always going
39:14 somewhere with his words they had
39:16 authority and as a matter of fact people
39:18 were so awestruck with with the words
39:22 that came out of his mouth they were
39:23 just like overwhelmed
39:25 who is this rabbi who is this guy that
39:27 speaks powerful worse so it's just worth
39:33 coming out because of what was already
39:35 in his heart the Spirit of God was
39:37 coming out and so out of the same mouth
39:43 comes forth blessing and cursing these
39:45 things my brethren ought not to be so so
39:51 in wrapping it up it says it doesn't
39:53 really take great or a month of faith to
39:57 see results because a Matthew 17:20 says
40:00 and Jesus said to them because of the
40:04 littleness of your faith but truly I say
40:06 to you if you have the faith the size of
40:09 a mustard seed I believe the mustard
40:11 seeds probably wanted these small seeds
40:13 in the kingdom of seeds you will say to
40:15 this mountain move from here to there
40:17 and it'll be moved and nothing this is
40:20 super awesome nothing will be impossible
40:23 to you so that wraps around you have to
40:28 abide in his word in abide in him you
40:31 have to come into agreement with God's
40:32 words come into agreement with God says
40:35 and then you'll be able to move great
40:37 mountains by the power of your tongue so
40:41 just be very aware speak blessings not
40:44 curse scenes and we thank you for being
40:48 here tonight so I'd also wrote there you
40:53 always get in half in your life where
40:56 you believe for and say
40:59 always so make it words of life make the
41:04 words that come out of your mouth work
41:06 for you and not against you and so God
41:10 loves you
41:11 you're his children you're his beloved
41:14 he cares more about you then you can all
41:16 imagine it's hard to believe that
41:18 especially when you're struggling or
41:20 when you're suffering but I just get
41:26 overwhelmed when I read things like
41:29 Psalm 23 the last verse it says surely
41:32 goodness and mercy will follow you all
41:34 the days of your life and you will dwell
41:37 in his presence forever here now I mean
41:44 think about this this is just
41:45 overwhelming
41:47 our lives are 50 60 70 80 years we can
41:52 believe for 120 like Moses did and by
41:56 the way he hiked up the mountain by
41:58 himself at 120 and so Psalms 92 verse 16
42:07 says there's nothing but goodness in him
42:10 he's for you so when when you have a
42:16 negative situation happening especially
42:19 if it's real negative realize that God
42:23 is probably has something right around
42:25 the corner for you that you're gonna be
42:27 just so blessed with and so use your
42:31 mouth to praise him to encourage other
42:34 people to speak power over yourself you
42:38 know you could also do this just put
42:40 your hand on you on your head because
42:41 the Spirit of God dwells in you and you
42:44 could just say you know I speak healing
42:47 on myself right now in Jesus name I
42:52 speak that I'm being delivered and saved
42:55 on a daily basis I'm always in the right
42:58 place in the right time I am a child of
43:00 God God's for me he's not against me and
43:03 he wants me well he wants me to prosper
43:05 beloved I pray above all things that you
43:08 pray that you prosper and be in health
43:09 even as your soul prospers
43:11 so God wants your
43:13 well when your soul as well according to
43:16 the New Testament according to what John
43:19 wrote you're going to move in life so
43:22 the things that are holding up the soul
43:25 moving on is when you dwell and speak
43:28 the negative in in your life and it
43:31 bubbles over to other people's life and
43:33 they you know you don't want them to see
43:36 you critical so with that I guess we'll
43:40 close it off thank you for your time
