Condemned by your own words

We have seen many events, which have left us confused and disappointed; for example, the development of diseases, accidents, the consequences of stray bullets, destruction and death, etc. We expect to see the good but see evil. We expect peace, but have to go to war. We expect life, but are faced with death. When these happen, it is normal for a person to blame a lot of things or people and, in many cases, even God is held responsible.

The Lord Jesus said, For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matthew 12:37).

Many are condemned to the misfortunes of this life, simply because of their own words. These words are often against someone who is under God’s favour. Therefore, it is truly impossible to expect goodness, peace and life.

God promised Abraham (His friend) that He would be in his favour: “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you…” (Genesis 12: 3).

It’s no use not doing things, which are against God, if you speak against those who are in His favour – His friends. Those who are friends of God obey His Word. “You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” (John 15: 14)

It’s one thing to have the devil as an enemy, but it’s another to have the Lord as your enemy, because of words you have uttered against someone who is His friend. “But if you indeed obey His voice and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.” (Exodus 23: 22)

It is better to think and think again before speaking against someone. Imagine what it would be like, if that person is God’s friend.

    This message also speak to me as a child of God because even those who believe in God can also speak bad to the children of God.But if me as an individual speak good or think twice when I speak something back about the a friend of God He will not find favour in me. So I must check my word's before speaking.

    Thank you, this message has taught me about the importance of watching our words. That we should think carefully about what we're about to say before we utter it...

    Bishop! It's the fact that with your own word you can be blessed and cursed and that's why through this message, I'm able to sort out the words suppossed to be spoken at the right time.

    The above message is very powerful it emphasizes the power of the tongue. imagine having to have God as an enemy simply because of speaking bad agains those who serves Him therefore it os very crucial that I guard what I say, think clearly before saying something.

    The Lord Jesus said ,you be justified by your words, and you will be condemned. many are condemned to the misfortune of their life because of their own words. God tell us he will blessed those who blessed us and curse those who curse us ,because we are God friend ,when we obeyed his words.its better to think again before speaking against some one .this though of mine can be back fired.
