THE POWER OF SPOKEN WORDS
Many people today are suffering needlessly due to a lack of knowledge about how some of the things in the spiritual realm operate. The spiritual realm is set up much as a government here on the earth—everything is done through a legal system. God set up this system, and even HE has to abide by His own rules, and principles.
In this system we speak about, God is the Judge, satan is the accuser (prosecuting attorney), and Jesus is the defender (defense attorney.
You see, satan is constantly accusing the brethren and using ANYTHING that he can to try to incriminate us before God. Jesus, then, on the other hand, is our defense attorney, so to speak. If we are washed clean by the Blood of Jesus, then the enemy (devil) cannot even go to the throne of God with his accusations.
There are a number of ways in which he (satan) has at his disposal to use to accuse each of us; and a lot of people are unaware that this is even happening. You see, if we cannot “see” something with our naked eye, we as human beings have a tendency to “believe” that it is there. This is what happens to many of us here on this earth—we do not “see” them, so we don’t realize that they are “there”. It seems to be so much easier to just close our spiritual eyes and ears and reject the very thoughts of this being real. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS ONLY ONE OF THE WAYS THAT THE DEVIL “DECEIVES” Us! Most find that it is just easier to not
“even go there”, and they ignore this and the devil continues to keep crushing them under his feet, when, in all actuality, he should be under our feet.
Let me just say this right here and now that this is real—it is very real—and just because we refuse to listen to this kind of message and try to understand it, doesn’t make it just go away. REMEMBER THIS: Anything that you are willing to accept, you will never change.
With all the above being said, we want to begin to show those of you who really want some changes to made in your lives, just how to begin to bring those changes about, and to remove curses that have been placed upon you, and allow God’s blessing to flow into your lives. Right here and now, we MUST realize that there are words that are continually being spoken, daily, about each of us that do us harm or damage. Therefore, it is very necessary for us to know how to deal with them on a daily basis.
Now, a lot of times there are words that are innocently spoken and not really meant to harm us or someone. We have not been taught what these words can do—remember, in Hosea 4:6, Scripture tell us : “My people perish for lack of knowledge”. We are finding more and more that words DO DEFINITELY have either a positive or a negative effect on us and those around us. Until one is actually taught about this, he/she just continues on as they have most their lives and said just anything and everything without any regard to how it is affecting our lives or even those of others.
A lot of times, the words that people say are not meant to harm—it is just a conversation to them, and this is the way it has been all their lives, and up until now, they have not been taught otherwise, and they don’t even realize what they are doing. Of course, you DO have those that are actually “cursing” us through their words, and they do it maliciously—you see, they “understand” how the spiritual realm operates, and those people are actually wreaking havoc into and onto people’s lives just by what they say, and the things that they “project” toward a person. Usually, such people who know what they are doing, and do it intentionally, are into witchcraft; however, anytime a person knowingly tries to project something bad to someone else, or to harm them, or curse them in any way, in such a way that it is controlling, it is witchcraft
Control is witchcraft—plain and simple!!!
We wanted you to know that early on in this teaching. There are people that say that their family, or friends, or a person they know are NOT into witchcraft. We tend to think of witches, and casting spells, and potions, etc. when we hear the word, “witchcraft”, but anything that is controlling, or is projected to us through words spoken, are actually witchcraft, as they have a huge part to play in the spiritual realm. Words spoken become “doorways” for the enemy to “come in” through. You see, in order for us to go INTO another place or room, or whatever, here in the natural, so it is in the spiritual realm—there has to be an opening for the enemy to be able to gain access to us.
A person may be living most righteously, and are totally above reproach, and totally acceptable unto God, but there can be someone out there speaking negative words about that person, and the enemy comes in through the doorway that those words opened. We, sometimes, even cause those doorways to be there ourselves through negative words that we actually speak about ourselves. For instance, if you say something like, “boy, I think I am coming down with the flu” or “my arthritis” is acting up. See! You have spoken it—you said you are coming down with the flu—or you claimed the arthritis when you called it yours!!
These are things that most of us don’t even realize we are saying. We could relate instance after instance regarding just small things that most of us say, daily that opens doors for the devil to attack us and our lives.
Let’s insert some Scriptures here to show what the Bible says about such things.
The Bible states that “The power of life and death are in the tongue”. Look at Proverbs 18:21—It says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Now, let’s look at what God has to say in His WORD about an un-tamed tongue:
5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
James 1:26-27 26 If anyone among you thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. (NKJV)
We want to refer you to the following other Scriptures which also speak of the evil that proceeds from an untamed tongue, and how they affect us. They are: 1 Peter 3:8-12; Jer. 9:3-5 (PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THESE SCRIPTURES, AS THEY ARE IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND THIS WHOLE LESSON—it is just too lengthy for us to type them all in here)
Now, read this closely………….There are times that people close to you who know your problems and concerns……yes, even your doctors who are ‘treating you’ for various diseases/infirmities………can actually speak things out of their concern for you from some of their experiences…..such as when the doctor says to someone “I’ve seen this type cancer at this stage many times and chances are it’s too late”…….they only have a couple months to live.” That has the power to start things in motion and the devil WILL take that and run. That could be a death sentence with power to kill as much as the cancer itself. Maybe someone you know, and trust with your situation, speaks against you during normal gossiping sessions and out of a desire to be able to brag later ‘I was right about how bad off they were’—may inadvertently speak impending death as well. These are people speaking death/sickness/failure/poverty/failure or whatever out of ignorance. THE ENEMY WILL USE THOSE WORDS AS RIGHTS TO ATTACK YOU! Now, you need to catch this:: And the doorways in your life or through your family bloodline/generational sins determine HOW FAR those attacks may go.
When those words are spoken by a blood relative, they are much more powerful---and they are even more destructive power over children or a spouse---someone who you would have authority over.
See, when a parent speaks something over a child, like “john always got in trouble as a child . .he’s liable to end of in jail someday”….or whatever…you get the idea—that is an example of a curse from a parent, through “spoken words”. There are some spirits that are most eager to go be released and go to work, and they are: rebellion, failure, poverty. . . then, that proves the parent was right. You see how that works? Think about it……..if not in your own life, there is probably someone you know who has been a victim to just this sort of thing.
You see, we try to teach our people that we have to get ourselves in a position where we can see things in the spiritual realm before seeing it manifest in the natural. We have to realize that there is a spiritual realm, and those things of the spiritual realm have rights to us here in the natural realm. What they actually use are our spirits, and work through them from the spiritual realm to cause things to manifest (or occur) here in our natural fleshly bodies while here on earth. You need to know and remember that all things happen in the spiritual realm BEFORE it happens in the natural. It is much like planting a seed, that seed becoming a root, and from that seed and root that is underground, a plant will spring up above ground on the surface. The seed and root, likewise in comparison could be the spiritual realm, and then the plant, above ground is the manifestation in the natural realm of that root actually growing in the spiritual realm. Think about it—the seed—probably a sin from either you or an ancestor is the seed---when planted by the enemy in the spiritual realm, it becomes the root, and then when watered by words spoken, it manifests itself in the natural, affecting your life here on earth. The underlying seed and root is the “cause”, but the manifestation in the natural realm where we can actually see it, is the “symptom”.
This gets deep, but these are the very things that the enemy (satan) is using, even today, to get to people—they are actually dying because they have not been taught. The truth is there in the Word of God—there is Scripture after Scripture that tells us about the power of life and death in our tongue, but unless we study it out and really learn it, it is only academic (or logos) knowledge. BUT, when we study it out and God reveals it to us (rhema) then that is when we UNDERSTAND it, and it is the truth that you understand that sets you free!
People, in general, and yes, sometimes, Ministers want to know all about this type of problem, and they will study it to a point, but for some unknown reason, they suddenly decide they don’t want to go there. I would suppose that sometimes it is because it is just easier to not “go there”. They therefore desire to go back to the blissful days of ignorance. They then will disassociate it, and refuse to think about it or even discuss it. Someone might find them to be “way out there” or “on the edge” and if the right people hear of this, they’ll call us “crazy”, and you’ve heard all those adjectives that people place on the ones that DO “go there”.
The Bible is specific about how those who try to sit atop the fence and serve both masters—usually they will become more like the dark prince, and go deeper and deeper into darkness. There is a prideful spirit, which is called Leviathan, which we’ll study about in another lesson, but it causes people to think that they can serve BOTH God and the devil, and still go to heaven!!! That is a lie from the pit!! No way!!
Let’s read in Matthew what God said about those who are half-hearted and trying to serve two masters.
Matthew 6:23-24 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. KJV
Matt. 4:10 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. KJV
God also states in the Word that those who practice divination, necromancy, witchcraft, will suffer eternal torment. They will have some of their desires here on earth through all that, but they will suffer forever and forever. You see, they have NO CHANCE to go to heaven, but rather, they are blinded by PRIDE and the desire to CONTROL their own lives and OTHER PEOPLE’S lives. EVERY action will be brought before the Judgment seat of Christ.
You must understand that to get more power, they must call in more demons. Each religion has a different name for them, but they are in truth serving demons. There are 2 sources of power in the universe. The MAIN source is GOD. As the ‘temporary’ ruler of the earth, thanks to the fall of Adam and Even, Lucifer (who became satan after the fall) is. Adam relinquished authority and power when he entered into rebellion by his disobedience.
The demons gain power by cursing someone with death, or some affliction or sickness, and when it happens, they receive more power. It gets really deep and successful deaths and sacrifices give them lots of power, but for this study, we are only trying to make you understand about the words spoken.
We believe that daily, as each of us live here on the earth, there are words spoken that not only harm, but can kill, people. We, for the most part, are totally unaware that these words have an impact on our lives, and our physical bodies, but they DO!
Sometimes, we can even speak things through our own mouths that will actually place a curse on us, or cause something to happen because it gives the enemy the legal right to act on what we just said. One must really think about these things, and weigh all of this out, in order to understand the full impact of our power in our tongues. If it was not relevant, God would not have put it in the WORD!! It’s that simple.
This part of the teaching we are about to present will undoubtedly reach some of you who have actually experienced some sort of abuse in your past life. In families where there are 2 or 3 children, the occult practicing parent will pick ONE child to train and takes them under their wing. Guess what? They use the OTHER SIBLINGS to practice on!! Now, this is hard for some to grasp, but it is very true!! No ONE, but No ONE, wants to believe that their parent or grandparent would actually actively do something to harm them, and sometimes, that parent or grandparent is only being used of the enemy to get this accomplished, and they are totally unaware that they are being used in this way. The parent or grandparent will cling to the ones they train and push the rest away. Rejection is a POWERFUL tool to open a child up for abuse/attack.
This is where many people, upon realizing that their parent(s) were not just mentally and physically abusive (possibly sexually)… but were ACTUALLY in the occult, have a major problem trying to ‘wrap their minds around the facts’. Their hearts will cry out, “but they’re my Mom or my Dad . . .they are supposed to LOVE me.. .. .How could they do this and KNOW what they’re doing?” They are NOT the same person they were years ago before getting involved in the ‘dark arts’. Reality is sometimes hard to swallow, and is not always pretty.
It can be terrible ministering to someone who is in their late 30’s or 40’s or even older, and SUDDENLY memories of terrible rituals and events are ‘coming to them’. These repressed and suppressed memories may be buried but after enough years, the PARTS of the fractured person, many who never had mental problems, are coming together to SHARE these buried memories. They are very real, contrary to what many psychiatrist claim are ‘false memories’.
Often, when these things start happening there is a ‘division between the personalities’ that starts to occur in these people who have NEVER had any indication they are fractured or were abused. This is the time they lost, forgetting what they did over a period of time—finding themselves in places and NOT remembering going there—or being told of conversations they had but have no recollection of it.
The number of people in America who were fractured at a very low level and will likely NEVER see a sign of it is staggering. They do see serious ‘mood swings’ all their lives but may never see anything more than that. Still for others, life can be a living nightmare.
The Bible tells us a lot about witches and those who serve Satan and false gods—this will be discussed in a different study-or teaching. We feel that this is quite enough for one teaching—“words spoken”—we need to stop and think about what we say, not only about others, but about ourselves, as well. We must realize that once those words are spoken, they are “out there”, until broken. The enemy will use ANYTHING that he can to interrupt, tear up, steal, kill, and destroy!
Think on these things!
