America, this election represents the fight for the soul of our country.

America, I have said this many times, and today, I am repeating this. 

America, we are in a spiritual battle for the soul of America. This choice includes the choice of our leaders in our upcoming election. One candidate is pro-life, and one candidate is pro-choice. 

We have those fighting for life, liberty, and the American way of life.  

We also have those fighting for the freedom to choose death for an unborn innocent baby, socialism, and the radical change of America into a country that will be astounding for those in power and utterly devesting for those who are not. 

America, we have allowed the murder of innocent babies for decades now. Since 1973, approximately 61 million babies have been killed in the United States. 

Planned Parenthood performs 947 abortions every day.

There were 20 million African-American babies killed via Planned Parenthood. 79% of their facilities are located within walking distance of black and brown communities. 

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/since-roe-abortion-has-killed-more-black-babies-than-the-entire-black-population-of-the-u-s-in-1960

America, abortion is the genocide of the African American population in the U.S. Genocide is not coming from the police’s hands. That is an inaccurate statement. 

Despite what you think, abortion is the murder of an innocent baby. Many do not feel this way, but they will see that statement is very accurate. When they face God in judgment, as we all will, they will find out that God saw this as the murder of a precious baby’s life. 

God holds all life as precious and valuable. Life is a precious gift from God Himself (Psalms139:14).

God tells us thou shall not murder. It is one of His ten commandments (Exodus 20:13). Yet, we sit back and allow the murder of so many innocent babies. 

In His word, God Himself says that the innocent bloodshed of life is one of the six things that God dislikes the most (Prov 6:16-19).

God’s words tell us the wages for our sins is death. I can’t even begin to imagine what the wages are for all the innocent blood we have allowed to be shed. God, help us!

But our God is just and fair! He will hold those accountable for this vile practice! This accountability includes those of us who sat by and allowed this atrocity to continue without saying a word. 

Do not kid yourself. There is a price for us to pay for allowing these murders to continue. Every choice for allowing sin has consequences for us.  

For one, I will now be one of those who sit back and say and do nothing while this practice continues to be allowed. Also, I will not be one who sits back and says nothing while our taxpayer dollars go to fund Planned Parenthood’s murder of innocent babies. 

Thank God for His never-ending forgiveness!

You may be asking what you can do to stop this. You might even be thinking that you are just one person, and your voice doesn’t matter. It does matter! It matters to this cause, and most of all, it matters to God Himself!

What can you do about this? First and foremost, you must seek God’s forgiveness. If you are genuinely seeking forgiveness, you will be forgiven by God.

Second, you must write, call, or email your Senator, your State Representative, and the White House too. 

Please tell them to stop abortion in America. Please ask them to stop using our American taxes to fund these vile clinics and the murders of innocent lives. And most of all, you must pray for God to intervene.

You can’t stop after one letter, email, or even one call. This abortion battle is going to be an ongoing battle. 

America, we are in the spiritual battle for the soul of our country. It is time to pick aside. It is time to fight and pray like never before. When I say fight, I do not mean physical fighting or fist fighting. I mean fighting on our knees via our prayers. After all, prayers are what we use as a weapon of warfare. 

Third, we must also pray for America’s forgiveness and every person involved in these murders, whether indirectly or directly. 

Make no mistake about it, each one of us will have to answer to God for choosing leaders who allowed abortions to continue. The choice of a leader who supports abortions is the same as a choice of you saying, “yes, please continue these grisly murders.” Our vote in God’s eyes is our voice in either support or non-support of this practice. 

Also, please note that I am a messenger of God’s word. If you find offense to what is being said here then You have offense of God’s word because that is what is being discussed here. This is the word of God and not of myself.

In fact, I am not asking you to believe me. If you support pro-choice, here is a little task for you. Pray, ask God to reveal the truth to you for your own knowledge. Ask God to open your eyes and ears and let His truth be known. Ask Him if abortion is murder. If you really seek the truth, then He will reveal it to you. God’s word says “ask and you shall receive, knock and the door will be opened (Luke11:9).

But know this, once you read this and know the truth, you are responsible to God for it.

Lets pray together: God, please forgive each of us for allowing these murders of babies in America and for allowing these clinics’ ghoulish acts to sell the baby parts for profit.

God, let us seek your face, turn from our wicked ways, pray, so You can heal our land, Father. 

God, we need you now more than ever. God, let America return to You. Father, thank You for Your eternal forgiveness. 

God forgive America for the choices we have made in the past. God, our intentions to continue to sin against You have allowed doors to open that we are not equipped to handle. 

Father, our choices to allow sin has brought hate, division, bitterness, resentment, murders of innocent Americans in our streets, destruction, and the ruin of many American families, business owners, and our economy. 

God, our own economy is weak and teetering on the destruction. God, help us! 

God, our sins have allowed the release of a vile virus. This virus has taken the lives of many people around the world. God, forgive us!  

God, we look to You to end this virus once and for all. We know You are the only one with the answer to this virus. God, give man the solution to end this virus today, whether in a therapeutic, a vaccine, or a medication. God, we know that You provide all knowledge. We receive by faith the answer to end this virus today. 

God, restore our world’s economies. God, we give you all the praise! 

God, end this hate and division in America. God, we know Your word says that a house divided cannot stand(Mark 3:25).

God, heal our nation of this division, hate, discrimination, and racism. 

Father, we ask the candidates that You want to fill the positions of leadership take office. Father, let Your will be done.

God, we love You, and we seek Your wisdom now with the issue of abortion. God, give us Your boldness and diligence to continue to fight this vile issue. 

God, only You can change the hearts and minds of man. God, open the eyes and let Your truth be revealed to those who support pro-life.

God, let us not go weary in doing good. 

We ask all these things in the precious name of our Savior, Jesus. Amen.

How many American towns have been decimated by the greed of vulture capitalism?

GodKnowsWP9.1419

 

About three years ago, I wrote a blog about a trip we took to the beach. In that blog, I discussed how gutted our small town and cities had become. I also explained how these towns and small cities were littered with empty storefronts, empty factories, and run-down empty houses.
Has any of this changed, gotten better, or has it improved? In some aspects, it has and then again some cities or towns are still suffering from lack of jobs.
Is the economy still the culprit? I don’t think so, not in the way it was before. The improved economy has given way for a new way for small towns and cities to be depleted, left on life support, and nearly dead.
What is this new way that these small towns are being drained and left for dead? It is called vulture capitalism.
Have you heard of it? I only recently did myself. Large hedge fund companies come in, buy tons of stock at a low price, and influence the way a company they now own stock in conducts business. They don’t do it for the traditional thoughts of making things better for the community, its employees, etc., but do it strictly for all the money they will make.
These hedge fund companies are wealthy. I am talking about billion-dollar companies. They force the sale of large companies by purchasing large amounts of stock in that company then proceed to influence the current owners or board. This influence and pressure to sell will bring negative changes to its employees and in turn, the community and other businesses. The new owner that takes over will get rid of employees, often make employee benefits disappear, and they cut costs in every possible way.
This, in turn, affects its former employees. They no longer have a job, which in turn affects the other business in that community. That former employee no longer provides business to local grocery stores, building supply stores, etc. That one employee who loses a job has a negative trickle-down effect on other companies in that same community.
Now that negative trickle-down effect was multiplied in that same community by 2,000. That is how many people lost their jobs in that same community. When Cabala’s was forced to sell to Pro Bass Shop, 2000 people in the same town were instantly out of work.
Cabela’s was forced by the hedge fund company to sell even though they had a profitable business. While this sale was happening, the hedge fund company sat back and watched as the stock they owned in Cabela’s went from $38 per share to $68 per share. Once the stock rose, the hedge fund company bailed. They sold their soaring stocks, making a cool $90 million.
Once the hedge fund company was gone, the community was left to suffer the consequences of the decisions that they had no choice in making. They were left holding the bag while the hedge fund company walked away with millions and their plans to take over and destroy the next company and town.
Allowing these hedge fund companies to destroy the lives of innocent Americans should not be permitted. There should be some way to hold these hedge fund companies liable for destroying the lives of innocent Americans. There should be some way these Americans can regain their lives and livelihoods back.
Our President often talks about improving the lives of all Americans. I know in my heart that he means it. Often things happen, and we are left with no information that these things ever took place. Our media no longer brings attention to important stories/issues of people or companies that single-handedly destroy the lives and communities of our fellow Americans.
We have to demand better from our media. We need to ask our President to eliminate the carried interest tax loophole that enriches these hedge fund companies. After all, this was one of his promises.
We need to demand that vulture capitalism be banned in America. We need to request the change in our tax codes that allows these million dollar companies to pay little to no taxes.
If this can happen in one particular town in America, this can happen anywhere in America.
America has always done wonderfully with capitalism. Many Americans have achieved the American dream. Many more Americans will continue to pursue the American dream, but then, some are still suffering from poverty. They are still struggling and living paycheck to paycheck.
When did money and power become more important to America than God? When did massive greed take over the hearts of so many people and force, so man men to turn their worship of God to money?
We have to do better for all Americans. All Americans deserve the ability to achieve the American dream. If you wonder what exactly you can do about this, wonder no more. Contact your Congressperson, write the President, or write your Representative. Don’t just call or write once and call it a day. Try calling or writing multiple times. Also, contact the media channel you watch and demand more relevant stories. These types of stores would include stories that impact our fellow communities and our fellow Americans. We have to do something to help our American family.

Your words can build up or tear down.

word-have-powerWP3.23.19

Your spoken words contain the power to promote or the power to devalue.
Be very mindful about the words uttered by your tongue.
Do the words you speak cause agony, hurt, pain, and tears?
Even the words you speak to your family can raise them up OR pull them down.
God’s word warns us about tearing down others with our words.
Sometimes we speak harsh words to the ones we love that we would not utter to any other person.
Our words can build or tear down. Mere words can cause damage that lasts a lifetime.
Mere spoken words can send another person into a downward spiral that they never recover from.
Mere words can inflict pain, wounds, and suffering that lasts a lifetime.
Mere words can dramatically alter the projected achievements of another person.
Mere words can make someone feel unlovable for a lifetime causing them unrecoverable damage.
If you are speaking evil or using words to tear down others, how will you explain that to God?
There will be a day when we all will have to account for every word spoken.
No one will be exempt from this judgment(Matt12:36).
No man is promised tomorrow. Today, seek the forgiveness of a loving and almighty God.
Today, I am so thankful for His forgiveness. I am not exempt from this judgment, BUT I have sought His forgiveness and stand in His grace of being forgiven.

Word of God!

Thankful words.

praise_worship11-11-16

So let’s review what God wants us to know.  First, we can change the course of our lives by speaking God’s word according to His will.  Our lives can take a path of EXtraordinary by fulfilling God’s will for our lives.  We don’t have to stay stuck in the rut of becoming “just like our mother or father” or “just like your black sheep uncle.”  We can accomplish amazing things through God.  We only have to be willing to do what He asks.  Is living for God easy?  The answer is “no.”  That is why the Bible says in Matthew 22:14: For many are called (invited, summoned), but few are chosen.” Even though this may not be an easy road to travel, the rewards are tremendous.
Secondly, we have to speak God’s words into existence.  We have to remember that our words have POWER.  We either speak life and blessings or curses and death with our tongue.  Our words can propel us into our divine destiny, or they can send our lives into an unraveled mess.  We have to choose.  We have to pick which one we want for our lives.
Thirdly, we can break all the “spoken curses” uttered into existence over ourselves and our loved ones.  We can break every plot and plan of the enemy with the powerful blood of our living Savior.
Now, let us discuss thankful words.  The Bible says this about thankful words in Psalms 100:4: 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto Him and bless His name.  Praises should continually come from our lips.  We need to desire to be worshippers like King David.  He was the worshipper of all worshippers.   King David wrote in Psalms 34:1: I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. King David knew that his worship which included thankfulness was the way to stay in God’s presence.
In God’s presence is where we need to be at all times.  People always talk about finding a rare place to seek peace & serenity.    Being in God’s presence is being in the ultimate place of peace.  This kind of peace does not exist on this earth.  God’s place of peace is supernatural and passes our understanding.  God has allowed me to occupy His peace and serenity on several occasions.  It is a place that is indescribable with mere words.  I long and desire with all my heart to occupy that holy place again.
Whatever situation we are facing, our attitude needs to be one of thankfulness.  I understand you may be thinking that this is easier said than done.  Please remember that God’s words say “All things are possible through Christ Jesus.” Bear in mind that our attitude determines our altitude.  Our nature is to complain and whine about the situations we are currently facing.  That is “normal” behavior for us.  Some of us whine and complain more than others.  It doesn’t matter if you complain a little or a lot.  God looks at our attitude.  We need to look at our battles as opportunities to become grateful & victorious.  Be thankful that when we are victorious, we will be stronger, and our faith will reach new levels.
I understand that certain things we have to face may appear unfair sometimes.  Some people seem to go through battle after battle with little to no rest or victory between each fight.  Do you know someone like that?  I truly believe in my heart that God has something so incredibly EXtraordinary in store for this person.  Why is there little to no victory in their lives?  Could it be the way this person is going through the battles?  It makes me wonder.  I am curious about this.
Being curious about it leads me to ask God why these sorts of things happen.  I have heard too many people say that we should not ask God “why God.”  If we don’t ask questions, how can we know what we are doing incorrectly?   I ask why all the time.  I ask for understanding and knowledge to fix these issues.  Time is too precious to keep going through the same battles over and over again.  Obviously, God is trying to teach us something wonderful if we keep going through the same battle again and again.
Could it be the way this person is going through each battle?  Could the “words” that are spoken into existence be words of complaints and whining?  Is this something to pray about and ask God?  There has to be a reason!  There is a reason we go through the things we do.  Everything happens for a reason.  There are no such things as coincidences.  If there are words of whining and complaining, then there can’t be words of thankfulness.  Remember it has to be one (complaints) or the other (thankfulness).  Complaints are counterproductive to thankfulness and vice versa.
Why is there so much animosity in this person’s life?  I would want to know why these fights keep happening without victories.  I would HAVE to know how to fix it.  Could it be that the enemy has them in disarray and confusion, so they never reach their EXtraordinary divine purpose?  My heart says the answer is “yes.”  God’s words say that we need to keep our eyes on Him because this is when our help arrives.  In Psalms 121:2 it says: My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.  If God Almighty created the heaven and earth, isn’t He mighty enough to find a way for you to be victorious in your current situation?
Psalm 121 goes on to say this: I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]— From where shall my help come? 2My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. In this verse, I see God saying to us that if we keep our eyes focused upon Him, that we will not be able to concentrate on the battle we are currently facing.  Just like our words have to be either blessings or curses, so does the thing we choose to be our object of focus.  If we focus on God’s glory, and our spoken words are His words, how can we fail?
If you can’t find the God words to speak or maybe your pain is too acute, then just say the simple words of “thank you, God.”  Say “thank you God” because He loves you so much.  Say “thank you God” because He will never forsake you.  Say “thank you God” because He is so indescribable.  If the words “thank you God” cannot be uttered, then just say the most powerful name in the world.  Just whisper “Jesus.”  Just His name makes demons tremble in fear.  Every name must bow down to the most powerful name of “Jesus.”  Just by saying “Jesus” makes it possible for other words to follow.  His name “clears the path” so to speak.  Please grab this in your spirit.  Just whispering the name of “Jesus” makes it possible for our spirit to cry out other words of thankfulness.
Maybe your sorrow is too overbearing to utter words of gratitude. Maybe your current situation has your mind so cluttered with doubt, fear, and confusion, but the devil is a liar!  Utter out “Jesus” over and over again and watch how that fear, confusion, and doubt have to flee your spirit.  That name of Jesus causes those negative emotions to flee and makes it possible for other words of thankfulness to come forth. Try it out.  Try whispering out the most powerful name of “Jesus” over and over again.  See for yourself how your spirit can lift out of its current place of sorrow and fear.  Let the enemy hear that you mean to be victorious by using the incredible name of “Jesus.” See we can have a joy that passes understanding as we go through our toughest battles.  God’s word says so.  In  Psalms 28:7 it says: The LORD is my strength and my [impenetrable] shield; My heart trusts [with unwavering confidence] in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I shall thank Him and praise Him.
We have to let our thankful words make the path for our “But God” moments.  There is no other way.  When we clear the way, then we make it possible for ourselves to utter out Godly words to bring those things that are not into existence.  We make it possible for God to inhabit our lives through our thankful words.  When we speak grateful words, I imagine God is up in heaven telling the Savior and the angels how wonderful we are.  He is the happy father poking everyone in the side and saying “that’s my child down there” speaking thankful words through all their doubt and fear.
As I mentioned in a previous post, the enemy thinks he can dampen the power of the name of “Jesus” by desensitizing our minds and spirits on just how awesome that name truly is.  The enemy is a liar.  The name of “Jesus” will never lose its power.  The name of “Jesus makes the impossible things possible.  The name of “Jesus” brings about healing and restoration.  The name of “Jesus” causes mountains to move.  The name of “Jesus” brings about our “But God” encounters.
You must win every victory through your “thankful words.”  Our “thankful words” have to precede anything we may ask of God.  In closing, let summarize what we have to focus on:
1)  We have to make a decision that nothing or no one is going to steal our joy.
2)  We have to speak “thankful words.”
3)  We have to praise God through every battle till we reach our victory.
4)  God inhabits our “thankful words.”
5)  Negative things and emotions CANNOT occupy the same place as joy and “thankful words.”
6)  “Thankful words” make it possible for the impossible to occur in our lives.
7)  The power of the name “Jesus” will never lose its power.
Can I pray with you?  God in heaven, please let me focus on thankful words.  Please let your praise continually come from my mouth.  Let this praise be pleasing to you.  Let my praise break every plot of the enemy.  Let my “thankful words” bust through every obstacle that is holding me back from my victory.  Let my “God words” bring about the incredible changes in my life.  Let me focus on the “God words” that needs uttering into existence.  Holy Spirit comfort me like only you can when my spirit is heavy.  It is written in Isaiah 61:3 that you give me the spirit of praise for the garment of heaviness.  In John 37:3, it is written, that out of my belly shall flow rivers of living water.  God, I truly believe that the living water is praise.  God use me for your glory.  Let what others may think are victim situations become victories to share with others facing these same issues.  Let my tests turn into testimonies.  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
If you are seeking to have a relationship with the King of Kings, then there is another prayer God wants to extend to you.  Maybe you were once close to God but have moved away from him.  Then this prayer is for you.  Please pray with me.  “Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins.  God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus.  I know Christ died on the cross for me.  I know He was crucified, buried and then arose on the third day.  I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God.  I receive Jesus as my savior.  In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
I pray that as your bellies flow with living waters, your lives will transform into your God preordained destinies.  God bless you all.

God’s words.

Well everyone, I was ready to write about the woman of God who gave a powerful message with the title of “How to believe in God (I believe in God)”, but the Holy Spirit intervened.  I was praying for God to give me direction and His words to write and describe to you the powerful message delivered to our church, but the Holy Spirit had other ideas.  He told me to put that post on hold because He wanted to expand on the message about God’s words.  So as directed, that is what this post will be about.  Here it is God’s “Ad hoc” post about “His spoken words”.

On the last post, we discussed about keeping God’s words in your mouth as we walked through the valley of our trials.  This must be very important to God right at this moment.  As I mentioned before, He has been whispering these very words to me for a couple of months now.  He has been cautioning me every time I was about to speak words that were not appropriate to utter.  He would remind me about the words I was about to speak into existence.  Think about that for a minute or so.  The words we speak out of our mouths become our future.  They leave our lips and permeate the air, bringing with it the cultivation of either blessings or curses.  Wow!!!!!  Do you need proof?  I understand.  It is sometimes hard to understand or even comprehend that the mere words we speak become the future for us, our family members or whomever we are speaking about.  I have the proof.  God would not just make these types of statements without the proof to back it up.

In Isaiah 55:11, God’s word says: so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. See this says that God’s words cannot return void to Him.  Those spoken words have to be fulfilled.  If God’s words cannot return void, do you think our words are any different?

In Romans 4:17, God speaks about calling those things that are not as though they were. There is the proof.  See speaking things into existence is basically calling your future into existence.  That is amazing!  We can call the things God created us to be into existence.  We simply speak the opposite of what our current situation actually is.  If someone is sick and in the hospital, they speak that by Jesus’ stripes they ARE healed (Isaiah 53:5).  If someone has no money and has no idea how they are going to buy groceries, they simply say I am blessed to be a blessing (2 Corinthians 9:6).  God’s blessings are a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over in my life (Luke 6:38).  I have more than enough.

God’s word says in Hosea4:6: 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge [of My law, where I reveal My will].   What does that mean?  It means that God is a God of laws, order and process.  His laws are written in His word.  The written words of God are so powerful that even God Himself cannot change or alter them.  That is why He says this about His own word (the Holy Bible) Isaiah 40:8: The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.

In simple terms, since we do not know God’s word, we have chosen to perish.  I know what you are thinking.  You are saying “Whoa, wait a minute, I haven’t chosen anything”.  In essence we all have made choices without the realization of doing so.  See God’s word says that our lack of knowledge brings the choice of perishing.  We make a choice everyday to live for God or not.  Yes, it is a choice we choose daily.   We either choose to live for God or not.  It  IS that simple.  See we think that God is complicated, but He isn’t.  I think some of us use that as an excuse saying God’s way is too complicated.  You are either for Him or against Him.  Now that IS super simple.  I don’t know about you, but I choose to be for Him.

We have to “Stop the madness” as someone once quoted, but it fits perfectly in this context.  How do we do that?  We do it with God of course.  He is the ONLY way we can stop this madness.  It is time to refocus.  Refocus and replace the unimportant things in our lives with the important things.

In saying all of that, we come back to the first step that God wants us to take to accomplish that goal – our spoken words.  Our spoken words are powerful.  Think of all the sayings we hear used everyday.  There is the saying “think about what you are saying because you can’t take it back” “think before you speak” etc.  Here is how God speaks of the spoken word.  In Psalms 37:30 God’s word says: The mouth of the righteous proclaims wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice and truth. In Proverbs 13:3, God’s word says this: The one who guards his mouth [thinking before he speaks] protects his life; The one who opens his lips wide [and chatters without thinking] comes to ruin. In Luke 6:45 it says this: The [intrinsically] good man produces what is good and honorable and moral out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart; and the [intrinsically] evil man produces what is wicked and depraved out of the evil [in his heart]; for his mouth speaks from the overflow of his heart.  Wow, that is powerful.  That passage is saying that the words we speak are a reflection of what our heart contains.  Again, it’s made simple and not complicated.  So in essence, do we need to change our hearts to change our words? The answer is “Yes”.

God’s word also goes on to say these things about the spoken word which is the most incredible of all.  He says we speak life or death and blessings or curses with our words.  See, here is another place where it is one thing or the other.  No gray areas. Did you see what that said?  We speak blessings or curses with our tongue.  Our words carry either life or death.  Man that is incredibly powerful stuff!  I know you need proof.  Here it is.  It says in God’s word   Proverbs 18:21: Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words. In James 3:10 it says this: 10 Out of the same mouth come both blessing and cursing.

Every word we speak out from our mouth has consequences.  WE have to decide if the consequences we speak will be good or bad.  The words spoken from our mouth becomes our or our loved ones future.  Please take a moment to think about what God is trying to say to us.  Have you ever heard a mother say to her son for example: “You are just like your father.”  “You are going to turn out just like him (his father)”.  “You will end up in prison or worse dead”.  If this young man accepts what is being spoken into his heart & mind, then he has accepted this lie of the enemy.  His mother has just spoken a curse over his life.

Those are negative words (curses) spoken into existence over that particular young man and over his future by his own mother.  Stop for a moment and think about all the words you have spoken just last week.  Were they negative or positive words?  Now, think about ALL the words spoken in our lifetime.  Wow!  That is really something to stop and think about.  How many negative words have we uttered into existence over ourselves, our families and our friends?  We have to stop this madness.

Are you wondering what you can do about someone speaking curses against you?  There is an answer.  God and the blood of our precious savior Jesus is the answer. You can apply the powerful blood that was shed on the cross by Christ over every negative spoken word.  If someone is trying to say negative things about you right to your face, refuse it!  Do not accept their curses into your heart and mind.  Respond right back to them saying aloud “I do NOT accept what you are saying about my life and future. That is NOT God’s plan for my life.  I do NOT receive those lies”.  That is what they are.  They are spoken lies trying to entrap your heart, your mind, your spirit and your future.  REFUSE it!!!!   Be bold.  Speak boldly that you know that this is NOT God’s plan for your life.  God says He comes to give us life and give it more abundantly.  So these negative words do NOT line up with God’s words and plan for you. We combat the lies of the enemy by speaking God’s word back to the enemy.  That is how Jesus fought Satan when Satan was trying to temp Him during Jesus’ 40 day fast.  Jesus fought him verbally with the word of God. Every item Satan tempted Jesus with a particular thing or item, Jesus responded by saying “It is written” followed by God’s word.

God’s word is our weapon to combat and defeat the enemy!!!! Now that is a statement and a half.  That is how God describes His own INCREDIBLE written word.  In Ephesians 6:17 God describes His word as a sword (a weapon).  Remember God says we perish for lack of knowledge.  As evidence, please think for a moment where your bible is right at this moment.  Is it somewhere collecting dust?  Do you own a bible?  Our lack of knowledge of His provided weapon causes us to live a diminished life.  Here is something key to know and remember.  God’s word is so incredible that our enemy knows it by heart.  He knows the bible front and back.

So now that we know what God’s word says about the tongue and words, let’s summarize what we need to refocus on:

A) We have to change our hearts. The words we speak are an overflow of what our hearts hold. We have to pray and ask God to change our hearts.  We cannot change our hearts or our words by ourselves.  This requires God’s help because He is the only one who can make this possible.  Here is something you may not realize.  God can do that for our loved ones too.  This is possible through our intercessory prayer.  Again, prayer is our way of asking for God’s help with a certain situation in our lives.  Intercessory prayer is in essence standing in the “place” of our loved ones.  Through intercessory prayer, we ask God to help someone else.  Also, remember we also have the right to pray for our loved ones, especially those under our authority like our children (and even our hairy babies).

B) We have to train our words and be mindful of what words are being spoken from our lips. Do they contain life or death? We have to keep God’s word in our mouth, especially when we are going through a trial. We have to speak victory and blessings into existence.  Things may look bleak and hopeless during a current situation but we have to speak God’s word to overcome our situation.  See when we are speaking God’s word, our focus is REFOCUSED onto God and not on our situation.

C) We have to place God back into the most important place in our lives – 1st place. When we do this, we will see every aspect of our lives come into line with God. This is evident in God’s word. In Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

D) We MUST destroy every negative word ever spoken over our lives. We do that by applying the POWERFUL blood of Jesus over these curses. See our culture thinks it has made the name of Jesus “weak” by using it in vain, but the devil is a liar!!!  The blood of Jesus will NEVER lose its power.

It’s a simple prayer.  We ask God almighty to break and destroy every curse ever spoken over our lives with the blood that was shed on the cross.  The blood shed by our beloved Savior demolishes every curse, plot and plan that may have been spoken against us.  Once again, remember we have the authority to destroy the spoken curses over our loved ones too (hairy babies too).

In closing, I pray that God will help you focus on His words and give the realization of the words you are about to speak into existence.  Do they contain life or death? I pray that He will give you a hunger for His written word. Also, that He will be placed back into 1st place in our lives.  Remember to P.U.S.H (Pray until something happens).  Prayer changes everything!  God Bless you all.
