The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully...
The LORD'S ninth Commandment
20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
The power of the tongue.
The power of words.
The power of truth.
The power of lies…
The words we choose to speak everyday always leave a trail and they always start from the same place.
What we feel inside, our hearts, our emotions, wind their way into our brains and float right out of our mouths.
We are human, we have feelings and we can't control what we feel let alone what we say...
As a wise woman did say, feelings aren't truth. Let that soak in…
When we allow ourselves to live in our flesh we are separated from truth, His Truth. When we live in our flesh we are ruled by emotion instead of the Commandments, integrity and logic. When we live in our flesh we are selfish, leaving no room for the Holy Spirit to see to His will being done.
See, the LORD made us perfectly capable of following His Commandments and that includes being honest. BUT of course it's so hard, it's impossible, it's crazy to think we can achieve that level of perfection! …..
I'll wait till the accountability kicks in…
Okay phew! Nope and nope! God does not make mistakes, He is perfect and so is His plan, the plan that says you can and will be forthcoming, honest, full of honor and integrity and willing to be ACCOUNTABLE, if you love Me and wish to be with Me.
We must live in our spirits friends, that is where He is. That is truth. No amount of sinful reward, no selfishness, no ignorance of accountability and no just this once... these things, these excuses to bear falsely with our brothers and sisters is literally our flesh LYING to us!
We are lying to ourselves people..
55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
9:8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.
There's those feelings again!
God calls His children to be honest, to be servants of His truth. How useful and worthy shall He count us to be after this earth if we are liars? If we will say beautiful truths with a lying heart? If we have no accountability, no control over our bodies?
8:56 Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.
In hebrew, the word liar or lie can mean fail. It means the Truth really will set you free, it will uphold you and will never lie to you...this is GOD.
He will never deceive us and He will never fail us, lies cannot come from Truth.
We must know Him, we must love Him and treasure this gift of His Holy Commandments that are there for us! Not for Him in any way...always for us. What a beautiful Father we have.
Guard your heart so that your spirit may lead… your flesh will surly follow. Tell the truth. Love the Father as He loves you.
Remember, should you choose to forgo that beautiful gift our Father so freely gives, this father is always recruiting...
8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Be blessed my friends xo
