Taming the Tongue

“For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body” (James 3:2). I would love to be perfect! If only if I could tame my tongue I would be perfect. “Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindles!” (James 3:5).

 

Bridling the tongue is a great feat that many give up on before they even try. Many people just say whatever silly thing comes to their mind without any thought of consequence to what fruit their words produce. “A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence” (Proverbs 13:2). There was a commercial that came on PBS when I was a little girl that said, “You are what you eat from your head down to your feet.” This is true. Your words dictate the path of your life. Every person will answer for every word they have ever spoken before God, every idle word.

 

“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment” (Matthew 12:36). Make your words count. Speak life!

Talk the Talk, Walk the Walk

“Faith without works is dead” (James 2:26). “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). What does all this mean? I was blessed with a very grave lesson in faith. I love to pray, and the Holy Spirit often gives me visions of people to pray for, so I pray for them whatever the Holy Spirit leads me to pray. Being led by the Holy Spirit of God and being sensitive to His voice is another lesson in itself.

I was praying for one little girl to be saved from a certain relationship that was harmful to her, but I did not say anything to this girl personally. I thought praying for her was enough, but it wasn’t. I needed to express the word of knowledge and wisdom the Holy Spirit had given me to this person. Because of my lack of deliverance of the message, this girl suffered greatly and so did I because of my negligence, because of my fear; but I have since repented of this grave sin. Now I know there is no one to fear but God. Jesus Christ says, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7). The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10).We are responsible for spreading the knowledge of the Lord to the world if you are indeed a Christian soul.

God Sends Giant Asteroid to Judge Earth

Revelation 6:12-17

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Holy Bible

Read the Holy Bible

I started reading the Holy Bible when I was 24 years old, and it changed my life so much that I have been reading ever since. In the Holy Bible, you will find the story of humanity in its relation to the one and only living God. It consists of an Old Testament where the story of the first human beings to the story of the formation of the nation of Israel, and a New Testament where the coming of the Messiah is revealed, the death and resurrection is fulfilled so that humanity can be saved.

When I started reading the Bible, the Holy Spirit began to speak to my spirit, and I began to recognize his voice by reading His words. There is a verse in the Bible that says the Holy Spirit will bring all things to your remembrance.

 “But the Comforter, who is the Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26).

So when you decide to read the Holy Bible, the Holy Spirit will help you remember His words so that you can be led by the Spirit of God.

The Lost Commandment

“Because it is written, Be you holy; for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16).

Holiness seems old fashioned in our modern day society. What is holy anyway? God is holy.

“For I am the Lord your God: you shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps upon the earth” (Leviticus 11:45).

“For I am the Lord that brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Leviticus 11:45).

There are unfortunately many people in our world who engage in sexual sins such as fornication, incest, molestation, rape, adultery, beastiality, and homosexuality. The law of holiness is widely disobeyed and people act like wild animals engaging in all forms of sexual immorality without repentance to the Holy God Jesus Christ.

There is judgment for sexual immorality. In the Holy Bible, the countries of Sodom and Gomorra were judged with fire and brimstone because of their sexual sin of sodomy which is homosexuality. God is the same and will not change.

“For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed” (Malachi 3:6).

If God destroyed two nations because of sexual immorality, He will also destroy the USA or any other nation who mocks God by accepting sexual sins.

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:7-9).

If you have lost holiness, ask the Holy Spirit to forgive you, repent of your sins of sexual immorality, and be saved in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Woman Looking Up

Anymore

I’ll be unfresh, stink and sore

So I won’t make love

With you anymore

As I walk out that door

Don’t tell me you don’t

Want me anymore

Oh what a surprise

The sea is on the shore

I don’t want to see

Your face anymore

So what about us

It was all abhor

So you don’t

Love me anymore

It was written

It was always a whore

Sitting on the beast

Begging for more

But oh one day

She’ll drop to the floor

Oh how glorious

I want some more

You want to know

What Leah looked for

Love and life

Beyond the open door

So I will wait

I will adore

Seeing your face forevermore

Love healing hearts,

Preparing for Marriage

When I decided to get married, I immediately thought that I needed some sort of teaching on how to be married. See, I wanted a successful marriage, not one that ended in divorce like so many others out there. God hates divorce and so do I (Malachi 2:16). Therefore, I learned everything I could about marriage from the Holy Bible and godly women who teach biblical principles about marriage.

I was introduced to the writings of Debi Pearl by a dear friend of mine. She wrote a book titled Created to be His Help Meet which changed my entire outlook on marriage. This book was exactly what I wanted and needed to start out my marriage right. She gives examples in her own life and in the life of others that work to help you have a lovely marriage.

I urge you if you are a wife or if you are thinking about getting married to read Created to be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl. Also, study what the Holy Bible says about marriage and ask God to help you have a good marriage in the name of Jesus Christ.

Love healing hearts,

Parental Guidance in Marriage

When young people are seeking a mate, should they consult with their parents for advice? I believe so. First of all, parents have more experience in the area of marriage whether good or bad.

For example, in Genesis 27:46 Rebekah tells Isaac, “I am disgusted with my life because of the Hittite women. If Jacob marries a Hittite woman like these, from among the native women, what good will life be to me?” Isaac appeases his wife Rebekah by instructing his son Isaac to go back to his uncle’s house to find a wife.

Why do these Hittite women bother Rebekah so much is left to our imagination, but she has probably had unpleasant communication with these women that she does not want her son to experience.

My dad once told me, “You need to marry a good black man.” At first, I thought my dad was limiting my options by race, but after dating men of various ethnicities, I realized I related better to black men; but everybody’s different. This is not prejudice but a personal choice. Of course, the conversation would go deeper as you ask your mom or dad for clarity, but don’t cast off their advice as old fashioned or intolerable because God placed us in our families for a reason, and parents have a bit of wisdom to share with you.

Parents may know certain characteristics you should look for and avoid when looking for a wife or husband. For instance, in Proverbs chapter 21:9, King Solomon warns his son that “Dwelling in a corner of a roof is better than a contentious wife in a spacious house.” Solomon has prior knowledge gained, perhaps from a sour relationship he may have experienced in one of his many marriages.

In another example, King Solomon informs his son that “It is better to live in a desert than with a contentious, vexatious wife (Proverbs 21:19). Solomon is warning his son about the pitfalls of marrying an argumentative woman, no peace in the house. Due to his father’s advice, he may divert from difficult women.

Parents have their children’s best interest at heart when it comes to marriage. No matter the case, parents have been around the block a significant number of times more than their children in relationships and have gained valuable experience they can hand down to their children. Indeed, children could gain important knowledge when discussing marriage with their parents when selecting a spouse.
