Words Have Power!


This morning after my husband finished reading our Proverbs for the day,
I flipped to the back of his Bible to check on a cross reference.
The Bible had no concordance, 
but did have some interesting "Helps" in the back.

This was one of those "Helps",
and it got me thinking of a verse from Proverbs 18:21 that says,
"The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit."

This reminded me of Ephesians 6:10-18 where Paul talks 
about our Christian battle of spiritual warfare,
and he says in
verse 17 to
"Take the helmet of salvation
 and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the Word of God."

Is Jesus going to use words from the Holy Scriptures to win the end time battle?

"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, 
whose rider is called Faithful and True. 
 With justice He judges and makes war. 
 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on His head are many crowns.  
He has a Name written on Him that no one knows but He Himself.  
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood,
 and His Name is the WORD OF GOD.  
The armies of heaven were following Him,
 riding on white horses and dressed in find linen, white and clean. 
 Out of His mouth comes a sharp sword 
with which to strike down the nations..."

Do we have the same useful tool that Jesus is going to use
when He comes back to earth to defeat the enemy?
...And are we using it?
I, for one, am not SPEAKING THE WORD enough!
With God's help, 
I plan to PUT IT TO WORK more often!

The Bible I mentioned above can be found HERE as the
"Every Day Life Bible".

Thanks for stopping by.
I did post a new and unusual Name for God on Rock4Today.
I hope you'll take time to check it out!

Hiya Mate. A big hug,, I have been out of circulation. You know, our words are so important! God showed us that by calling Jesus the Word. Jesus became flesh, when Mary spoke the word to accept that she was to become incarnate. Our words to ourselves and to others should never be taken lightly. Thank you for sharing this.. I see its hit you also.. words... can be beautiful, they can encourage, inspire or can pull down. My words to you today are, I love you sweet sister-in-Christ, for your beautiful mind and heart. xxxx
