Whatever you hear goes into your heart and your brain. If it’s a good word, it gladdens your heart, but if it’s a bad word, it darkens your heart. If your heart is darkened, then you commit sin because Satan will capitalise on it and it’ll lead to something else. Word is a Spirit, you cannot hold it in your hand. As I Am, so is My word. But My Word is healing to your heart. If I speak bad words to you, that means you’ve done what you shouldn't have done. And if I speak it, that means I love you. I Am the Almighty God. I Am a Good Father.
If you’re deaf, anybody can say whatever he likes, it’s none of your business because you can never hear. But because you’re not deaf, your ears are alive, and whatever word you hear means a lot to you. No matter how much you love somebody, the moment you hear he said something evil or something bad about you, even if it’s a lie, you can’t control yourself anymore. This has ruined many people's relationships. When I said My children should not bear false witness, I know what I meant. Satan doesn’t like what’s good. His own is to cause trouble and commotion everywhere. And if you’re not wise, he’ll get you easily. He knows what you love, he knows how to get you.
If you’re the kind of person that always get angry because of whatever you hear, Satan will always get you. He knows how to use the weaker ones around you to get you. He knows how to manipulate, cajole, and lure you into trouble. Before you know it, you’ve gone far. Every Law, every Ordnance I gave to My children, I know why I gave it. Because all of you are born into sin, this is why it’s very easy for him to get you. But if you follow My Law, you’ll always put him to shame every time he tries you. He knows the weakness of all of you, and he capitalises on it.
Somebody has gone to an early grave because of what somebody said to somebody. And as My true son or daughter, if you commit sin because of what you hear, that means you’re not done. You still need to remove the ashes from your fire and cook yourself more. If you’re done, no matter what anybody tells you, no matter how bad or evil the word may be, it will mean nothing to you because you don’t want your heart to be darkened. A darkened heart is the dwelling place of demons, and if you can maintain it every day by day, you’ll scale through. If Satan knows you’re always angry whenever somebody speaks a bad word to you, he’ll always connect such people to you, so you can get angry because he knows he’ll get you when your heart is darkened. But if you know yourself and know what your Father hates, you’ll know how to conquer him.
The word that passes through our ears matters a lot. As human beings, all we need is encouragement. We’re meant to encourage each other every time. If one is down, the other one will lift him up. Then it’s a true saying that two heads are better than one. We can lift each other up through the word we speak. But Satan hates what’s good! If one is down, he doesn’t want him just to be down, he wants him to be crushed. How could he achieve this? He needs somebody who’s available, somebody who has his spirit in him or her.
In the body of Christ today, everyone is living in his own world. Nobody cares about each other. Oh, Sister Grace, I have no job; sorry Brother James, it is well; God will provide. Then she’ll walk away. Sister Grace forgets that something must enter the stomach of Brother James. She forgets that God will not come down from Heaven physically but will use those who are physical on Earth. This is one of the problems the Father have with the church. No one cares about the other. Everyone is working towards achieving a personal goal, not the goal of the Father. But the Father is still waiting for those who’ll use everything to support His work so that He will always have something to tell Satan whenever he’s bragging.
The kind of word we hear in the midst of affliction goes a long way. That word can be the bedrock of our strength to rise. And if we don’t see the right person with the right word, the period of our rising could take longer. As children of the Father, the Father wants us to bear each other’s burdens. He wants us to look after each other, not in sin, but in holiness. But the church today is full of gossipers, full of those who love pulling others down with their mouths. As a result of this, the church becomes sicker than ever.
As a Christian, it’s better to keep your mouth shut than to speak a bad word to somebody. If someone has no hope and he comes around you, the kind of word that comes out of your mouth should give him hope. This is why we gave our lives to Jesus Christ. And as a Christian, you shouldn’t expect anything from anybody. If you’re lucky to see the right person around you, praise God for that. If the opposite happens, also praise God for it because He who has called you will never leave you halfway. He’ll surely lead you to the end. Therefore, if you don’t see what you expect in a Christian brother or sister, don’t be disheartened. If you hear a good word, praise God for it, and if you hear the opposite, praise God for it as well. If you’re this kind of a Christian, Satan will find it very hard to break you. Hallelujah. Glory to the Father. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus' name.
