One important fact we must learn at the very beginning of the Christian life is this:
1. Every believer has DEMONS, DEVILS assigned to him, to her! To taunt him with doubts, depression, snares, etc.
2. Every believer, therefore, MUST LEARN HOW TO MAKE THE DEVIL SHUT HIS MOUTH!
3. Every believer must learn:
a. That the way to silence the devil is through PRAISE! All over the church!
b. We recall the POWERFUL TRUTH in Psalm. 8:1-2,
“0 LORD OUR LORD, HOW EXCELLENT IS THY NAME IN ALL THE EARTH.
WHO HAST SET THY GLORY ABOVE THE HEAVENS. OUT OF THE
MOUTH OF BABES THOU HAST PERFECTED PRAISE, BECAUSE
OF MINE ENEMIES, THAT THOU MIGHTEST STILL (shut
the mouth of) THE ENEMY AND THE AVENGER.”
-ENEMIES is in the plural – every one of us is UNDER ATTACK from evil spirits.
-ENEMY is in the singular – refers directly to Satan, the avenger of Christ and His own.
-ENEMIES and ENEMY must be stilled, quieted, shut up:
“AND THE GOD-ORDAINED WAY IS BY A PRAISING PEOPLE.”
I. WHY IS THAT SO IMPORTANT?
1. Both from the WORD OF GOD and FROM EXPERIENCE.
2. There is no doubt in my mind that SATAN WORKS AGAINST US ON A DAY BY DAY BASIS.
3. And the TARGET THAT SATAN uses day by day is OUR MINDS.
4. The area of our thoughts, our minds, is to me THE FIRST AND FINAL BATTLE FIELD.
5. Satan majors in HEAD LOCKS, BRAIN CRAMPS, MIND MINIPULATION, MIND BOMBS! The mind is HIS major TARGET!
EXAMPLE # 1
-Do you remember the clear story of Judas and his betrayal of Jesus Christ?
-We read in John 13:2,
“AND SUPPER NOW BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW
PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMON’S
SON, TO BETRAY HIM.”
1. Satan, that old devil, dropped THAT DEVILISH THOUGHT INTO THE HEART and MIND OF JUDAS.
2. Judas BOUGHT INTO THAT DASTARDLY THOUGHT, and it totally DESTROYED HIM FOREVER.
-It is the devil who drops thought bombs into my mind! Your mind! He majors BRAIN WARFARE!
-Little explosions of BETRAYAL, DIVORCE, SEPARATION, RETALIATION, VENGEANCE, GET EVEN, LUST, FOULNESS, CURSING, HATRED etc.
–They go off, EFFECTIVELY, POWERFULLY, ON TARGET, ON TIME, DAILY!
EXAMPLE # 2
-Really found in the words of Paul, which are recorded in II Corinthians. 10:4-5,
“FOR OUR WEAPONS OF WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL, BUT MIGHTY THROUGH
GOD, TO THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONG HOLDS, CASTING DOWN
IMAGINATIONS, EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF
AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO
CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.”
1. We are told by Paul there that the enemy has TARGETED OUR MINDS – THOUGHTS.
2. There, Satan seeks to establish STRONG HOLDS IN US; in our minds, in our imaginations.
“GLOOMY THOUGHTS, FUTILE THOUGHTS, WHAT’S-THE-USE THOUGHTS.”
“POOR-ME THOUGHTS”, “I’M-SO-ABUSED THOUGHTS”, “NOBODY-
-More than that:
“LUST THOUGHTS, APPETIZING SUGGESTIONS, EVEN IN OUR DREAMS.”
3. Yes, DOUBTFUL THOUGHTS, QUESTIONING-GOD THOUGHTS, AND DISPUTING-THE-BIBLE THOUGHTS, because INIQUITY WILL ABOUND IN THE LAST DAYS. God will seem to no longer be ruling, but rather Satan will seem to be ruling. Hell will seem at times to have triumphed over Heaven. It will get worse as the Bible assures us.
-The Lord tells us in Matthew 24:12 that in the last days, and we better hear it strong,
“And because iniquity shall abound, the love (agape) of
many will wax cold.”
-The masses will more and more be ruled by insatiable wicked appetites, and all moral values will steadily decline. Agnosticism and atheism will increase. We read the question in Luke 18:8,
“However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”
-Sexual perversion and disasters will increase. And Satan will use all of this to build strongholds of DOUBT AND UNBELIEF in the minds of even the very religious.
-True Christians will be harder and harder to find. Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), reportedly admired Jesus, and he often quoted the Sermon on the Mount. The missionary E. Stanley Jones once asked this leader of India, “Mr. Gandhi, though you quote the words of Christ often, why is it that you appear to so adamantly reject becoming His follower? “ Mr. Gandhi responded,
“OH, I DON’T REJECT YOUR CHRIST. I LOVE YOUR CHRIST. IT IS JUST
THAT SO MANY OF YOU CHRISTIANS ARE SO UNLIKE YOUR CHRIST.”
-In the last days, the APOSTATE CHURCH will cause more and more people to question and doubt Christ than at any other time in history. It will be the GREAT FALLING AWAY, and Paul calls these doubts STRONGHOLDS indeed, which means that Satan gets strong doubt-holds on our thought life.
–We have come into that time of history of the APOSTASIZING OF THE CHURCH, taught clearly in II Thessalonians 2:3. You will hear preachers more and more say about Scripture that IT COULD MEAN THIS, BUT IT COULD ALSO MEAN THAT, AND THEN AGAIN IT COULD MEAN SOMETHING ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT.
-What we will be given in these days is HUMAN OPINION, not DIVINE FACT. Now hear me:
“OPINION IS THE LOWEST DEGREE Of ASSENT AND CONVICIION.”
-IF YOU WILL:
“OPINION IS CAUGHT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN D0UBT AND
BELIEF – SORT-OF-BELIEF.”
“OPINIONATORS ARE ALWAYS REACHING FOR TRUTH,
BUT NEVER EMBRACING IT.”
This is our day:
“IT IS NO LONGER THE DAY OF THE ‘THUS-SAYETH-THE-LORD
PREACHERS,’ BUT RATHER THE DAY OF THE ‘PERHAPS-AND-
-And we are TOLD TO PULL THESE DOUBTFUL THOUGHTS DOWN, CAST THEM DOWN.
-I tell you, that THIS IS ALL OUR DAY BY DAY WARFARE. So much for this peaches-and-cream preaching that is rampant today. The Christian life is an all out day by day battle against the demonic forces. They never let up.
–So many religious types live and act like Satan has a minor role in our daily lives. Oh yes, even as you might meet bats in a cave, so too you might meet demons in an X-rated movie. Other than that, Satan, according to them, is way overrated. Nothing could be further from the truth. Satan is constantly with his hit-demons roaming the earth, seeking whom he mght devour. And all the while, though they assign Satan a minor key in the discordant symphony of their lives, they take their tranquilizeres and anti-depressants by the truck load.
-And believe you me, casting them down is one thing, but keeping them from being there is another; that’s where we are after in this series.
4. Yes, and FEARFUL, PANICKY, ANGST-FILLED THOUGHTS which will paralyze the masses, even the religious. We read in Luke 21:26,
“And men’s hearts failing them for fear….”
–Islam is the world’s second largest religion. There are now approximately 1.5 billion Muslims in the world today. It now appears to be the fastest growing world religion. Some feel that Islam could become the world’s largest religion by the middle of this century. It is the most bloody and demonic religion to ever make the world’s scene.
–Muslims believe that their soon coming Messiah-MAHDI, will lead a vast and mighty army against all non-Muslims (the infidel pigs). Writes Dr. James F. Gauss in his book “Islam And Christianity – A Revealing Contrast”-
“The purpose of the Mahdi is not to bring salvation to the lost, rather, to usher in an age of world destruction so that only Muslims will inherit the earth. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, is on record as stating that he believes he is to have a personal role in ushering in the age of the Mahdi. In a November 16, 2005 speech in Tehran, he said that ‘his main mission in life is to pave the way for the glorious appearance of Iman Mahdi, and may Allah hasten his appearance.’”
“Muslims also believe that Jesus will return as a Muslim, and that he will come again to convert the world to Allah. They believe that Jesus will kill the pigs (the infidels), He will destroy all crosses, and kill all Jews. When He dies, He will be buried next to Muhammad in Medina.” (End of Gauss quote)
-More martyrdoms are taking place now around the world than ever before in history, particular in Muslim areas. Mass murders and serial killings seem to be happening much more often, many times for no apparent reason, and it seems that few people can be trusted. Here then comes the FEAR STRONGHOLD, and as one young father said recently,
“I EVEN WORRY ABOUT TAKING MY YOUNG DAUGHTERS TO CHURCH.
WHO CAN YOU TRUST ANYMORE?”
-The Lord tells us in His Word 365 times to FEAR NOT, one “FEAR NOT” FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR. I sense DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS OF FEAR taking hold in the minds of believers and unbelievers alike. It is becoming pandemic. Even is unexpressed, it is seething below the surface.
5.. YES, AND STRONGHOLDS OF PROUD, HAUGHTY, SELF-ABSORBED THOUGHTS. Frankly, all men can really in this regard be divided into two camps – THEISTS WH0 PRAISE GOD, or, SELFISTS WHO PRAISE THEMSELVES.
-You talk about PRIDE STRONGHOLDS THAT THE DEVIL HELPS PEOPLE CONSTRUCT IN THEIR HEADS. A funny, albeit rather crude song from the musical Les Miserables offers a glaring example. Cosette, a young orphan who lodges with innkeepers named the Thenardiers, is one of its central characters. Mr. Thenardier, who treats his wife horribly, is comically pompous. He sings a memorable song in which he calls himself:
“MASTER OF THE HOUSE…SERVANT TO THE POOR, BUTLER TO THE GREAT,
COMFORTER , PHILOSOPHER, AND LIFELONG MATE. EVERYBODY’S
BOON COMPANION, GIVES ‘EM EVERYTHING HE’S GOT.”
-Mr. Thenardier thinks of himself as everyone’s friend, as well as the master of his house. His wife knows better. She, after all, essentially runs the inn. So, Mrs. Thenardier sings a song that parodies her husband’s pomposity. One of the lines goes:
“MASTER OF THE HOUSE? ISN’T WORTH ME SPIT!”
-What a hoot! His wife’s song is a powerful swift kick in her husvband’s egotistical stronghold. We all have them to one degree or another.
EXAMPLE # 3
-This is just in reverse:
1. Not only can the DEVIL ACTUALLY PUT THOUGHTS INTO OUR MINDS, MIND BOMBS.
2. But, according to Scripture, he can actually take God’s thoughts out of our minds.
3. We read this in Matthew 13:
-There, Jesus Christ teaches the disciples,
“THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER.”
-In that particular parable, the SOWER SOWS SEEDS on 4 different kinds of ground.
-Some seeds FELL BY THE WAYSIDE:
a. And we read that the fowls or birds came to pick them up.
b. And in Matthew. 13:19, Jesus interprets for us what all this means:
“WHEN ANYONE HEARETH THE WORD OF THE KINGDOM AND UNDERSTANDS
IT NOT, THEN COMETH THE WICKED ONE, AND CATCHES AWAY THAT
WHICH IS SOWN IN HIS HEART.”
-Amazing! What an incredible description of the POWER OF THE ENEMY!
-Satan obviously can tell when WE ARE about to get the mind of Christ.
-And when the SEEDS OF TRUTH ARE SOWN, he can catch that seed away, before it takes root, before it is understood.
-And, he does so by SOWING SOMETHING ELSE IN OUR MINDS! He is the the master UPROOTER AND RESEEDER.
-Let’s get real here, as real as a heart attack. Satan has been busy for several decades snatching the Judeo-Christian inheritance from the mind of America.
-It was a large auditorium in May 2004 which had been prepared for the graduate students of Northeastern Law School. The student selected as the student speaker was about to start her graduation speech. Supposedly, she was the best and the brightest of the graduating class.
-So this young woman from Northeastern who was about to speak had the total attention of the students and the audience. What was she going to say on this august occasion at a historically well-respected institution of higher learning?
-Would she say THANK YOU TO THE OLDER FOLKS FOR GIVING THEIR GRADUATE CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE THESE WONDERFUL EDUCATIONS?
-No, not even close! Guess again! The first thing this student speaker said was that SHE WAS A TRANSGENDER PERSON WHO RECENTLY WENT THROUGH A SEX CHANGE, AND THAT THE WORLD WAS A HORRIBLE PLACE FOR NOT ALLOWING HER TO MARRY HER GAY PARTNER.
-Then she said that the world is too horrible a place to have children, and that no one should have children. Even some of the liberal thinkers there that day were shocked. Yes indeed:
“SATAN THE TRUTH SNATCHER AND FALSEHOOD PLANTER HAS GONE FULL
CYCLE IN AMERICAN SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES.”
–Satan has been working 7-24 to take God, His laws, His Word, and His Son out of the American consciousness. And in God’s place, he has been reseeding the American mind with the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.
–However, nowhere does the Constitution of the United States even mention the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. Nowhere does it state that religion cannot influence government. The Bill of Rights in fact restricts government from placing any kind of limitations on people’s religious beliefs and practices. In fact:
“THE FREEDOM TO PRACTICE RELIGION ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME IS A
BASIC FREEDOM WE ENJOY UNDER THE BILL OF RIGHTS.”
“SATAN IS DOING HIS DAMNDEST THROUGH THE SECULARISTS TO
TAKE THAT RIGHT FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.”
“THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN THE SECULARIST, COMMUNIST
TYRANTS OF THE OLD USSR.”
II. WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THIS?
-FIRST OF ALL, realize this:
1. That the Christian who fails to TAKE UP HIS WEAPONS against Satan is already defeated.
2. There can BE NO VICTORY IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE without a fight.
3. Paul characterized Christian living as just that, A FIGHT, when at the end of his life, he said in II Timothy 4:7,
“1 HAVE FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT.”
4. The Christian life is not a CAKEWALK, but a CONSTANT FIGHT AGAINST SATAN.
-SECONDLY, realize this:
1. That the WEAPON THAT SHUTS SATAN’S MOUTH IS THE ROCKET OF PRAISE.
2. A PRAISING PEOPLE literally BLOWS SATAN OUT OF THE AIR, and away from you.
3. You will destroy the devil’s missiles:
-Missiles of DISCOURAGEMENT, missiles of LOOKING ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF LIFE.
-Missiles that BIND, DISCOURAGE, FRUSTRATE, DEPRESS.
4. You will literally SHOOT SATAN DOWN AND RID YOURSELF OF him by being “PRAISING PEOPLE.”
-HOW DOES AND WHY DOES THIS WORK?:
1. Realize this thing that happened to Satan and you will see why!
2. Satan was an ANOINTED ANGEL AND MASTER MUSICIAN IN HEAVEN:
-Sin, the sin of PRIDE, entered Satan’s heart, as we read in Isaiah. 14:13-14,
“SATAN SAID IN HIS HEART – I WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN.”
“I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD.”
“I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.”
“I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS.”
a. Satan also wanted all the WORSHIP THAT GOES WITH BEING GOD.
b. Satan wanted all THE PRAISE IN HEAVEN, AND THE WORSHIP TO GO TO HIM.
c. Satan’s ultimate TEMPTATION of Jesus in the wilderness shows it. He wanted God to worship him – he knew who Jesus was – God Himself.
“AGAIN THE DEVIL TAKETH HIM UP INTO AN EXCEEDING HIGH MOUNTAIN
AND SHEWETH HIM ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD, AND
THE GLORY OF THEM.”
“AND HE SAID TO JESUS, ‘ALL THESE THINGS WILL I GIVE THEE, IF THOU
WILT FALL DOWN AND WORSHIP ME.’
“THEN SAITH JESUS UNTO HIM, ‘GET THEE HENCE SATAN, FOR IT IS WRITTEN,
THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ALONE
SHALT THOU SERVE.’”
-So more than ever today:
a. ROCK concerts are more and more designed TO WORSHIP SATAN!
b. As one rock band manager states:
“WE HAVE DECIDED THAT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE RELIGIOUS SERVICES IN OUR CONCERTS. WE ARE GOING TO PRONOUNCE OURSELVES AS MESSIAH, AND WE ARE GOING TO MAKE INTIMATE ACQUAINTANCES AND COVENANTS WITH SATAN, TO PRAY FOR THE SICK AND PULL PEOPLE OUT OF WHEEL CHAIRS DURING CONCERTS. WE WILL BE WORSHIPED.”
1. Because SATAN DESIRES YOUR AND MY WORSHIP! (It is his nature’s compelling drive)
2. PRAISE TO JESUS:
-Creates an atmosphere that actually EMBARRASSES SATAN.
-Nothing, in fact, ANGERS OR EMBARRASSES HIM MORE!
-He therefore when we are praising Jesus:
a. Must leave:
“Satan MUST GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!”
b. We then TROUBLE HIM much more than he can ever trouble us.
c. It is the rocket that we may well call:
“THE ANTI-BEELZEBUB MISSILE!”
III. CHRISTIANITY’S ROCKET AND WARHEAD
-Realize this now:
1. With all of that said, when YOU PRAISE, praise God, don’t SHOUT AT THE DEVIL.
-The rocket of praise itself is powerless; it needs a warhead.
-The rocket simply carries the WARHEAD to the TARGET.
-The rocket is praise; the warhead is the NAME OF JESUS:
a. Concentrate on the Lord Jesus, HIS GLORY, HIS POWER, HIS BEAUTY.
b. Don’t ever think about Satan when you praise Jesus; think about Jesus and His attributes.
c. PRAISE JESUS, BRAG ON JESUS, and that WARHEAD WILL EXPLODE IN SATAN’S FACE.
EXAMPLE – SAME POINT FROM A DIFFERENT ANALOGY – THE BEEKEEPER STORY
– In the orient, beekeepers know how to gather honey, without getting stung. They wear very little protection; they seldom PUT A VEIL OVER THEIR FACES. They seldom put on SPECIAL CLOTHING OR GLOVES. Yet they can be surrounded by angry bees and escape harm.
-The explanation is that these people pay NO ATTENTION TO THE BEES. As a matter of fact, when that BUZZING LITTLE CREATURE lights on them, it makes no more attempt to sting them, than it would a flower!
-On the other hand, THE WESTERNER is usually NERVOUS and DEFENSIVE, and will often RUN AROUND, and FRANTICALLY WAVE HIS ARMS, TRYING TO REPEL THE BEES and give the SWATTING MOTION! As a result, he or she often ends up being stung multiple times.
-Likewise I read in Psalm 118 that the Psalmist was SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES:
a. In fact, we read in Psalm 118:12, it says:
“THEY SURROUNDED ME LIKE BEES.”
b. Like, he was caught IN A SWARM OF ANGRY BEES.
-What are we to do? Swat at Satan?
-No, No, No! Don’t even give him the time of day!
-Concentrate on LIVING A LIFE OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP TO GOD.
-Satan will NOT BE ABLE TO BOTHER YOU, TAUNT YOU, for the enemy will be stilled.
IV. EVERY ROCKETED WARHEAD NEEDS A LAUNCHING PAD.
-And frankly, ALL SPIRITUAL WEAPONS IN Scripture have ONE LAUNCHING PAD.
-And, THAT ONE LAUNCHING PAD IS THE MOUTH:
1. THE MOUTH IS THE CENTER OF ALL SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
2. FROM THE MOUTH, all the weapons of God are launched.
-So we read in Psalm 109:29-30,
“LET MINE ADVERSARIES BE CLOTHED WITH SHAME, AND LET THEM
COVER THEMSELVES WITH THEIR OWN CONFUSION, AS
WITH A MANTLE.”
“I WILL GREATLY PRAISE THE LORD WITH MY MOUTH, YEA I WILL PRAISE
HIM AMONG THE MULTITUDE.”
4. And I could go on and on:
“THE MOUTH IS THE, NOT A, BUT “THE” LAUNCHING PAD FOR
THE ROCKET OF PRAISE.”
-Just because there is a motor in my car, doesn’t mean the car is going to go anywhere I must activate the power in that motor by turning on the key…We have within us the GREAT POWER of our Almighty God! There is a SPIRITUAL MOTOR inside every believer, but we must turn on the key!
-And the KEY THAT MUST BE TURNED is the GLORY OF GOD, SPOKE, SUNG, SHOUTED, WHISPERED, PLAYED from our lips. That will leave the devil behind CHOKING IN THE DUST OF EMBARRASSMENT and SHAME!!
-I STATED JUST A MOMENT AGO:
1. That the mouth is the LAUNCHING PAD for all SPIRITUAL WEAPONS.
2. That the mouth is the CENTER OF ALL SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
3. Well folks:
-It is true for the enemy as well; the mouth is HIS LAUNCHING PAD for his weapons.
-I read in Revelation. 16:13,
“AND I SAW 3 UNCLEAN SPIRITS, LIKE FROGS, COME OUT OF THE MOUTH
OF THE DRAGON, AND OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE BEAST, AND
OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE FALSE PROPHET.”
–It is amazing what ONE MOUTH can do to advance Satan’s causes.
-Adolph Hitler was an exceptional mouth for the dragon. Hitler was empowered by the dragon to establish the INFAMOUS YOUTH MOVEMENT. Within a couple of short years, Hitler, AFTER DEMOCRACY HAD ELECTED HIM, his educaionnal system had brainwashed a generation of young people into thinking that Jews were the enemies of the Aryan Race.
-Then the young convinced their parents. Because of this, the masses willingly made Hitler their sole, supreme leader. Democracy was totally elminated, totalitarianism prevailed, and millions were exterminated.
–Barack Obama is doing the same thing to our youth through the NEA, distorting America’s history so as to replace democracy with socialism, and Christianity with Islam. Out of the mouth of the dragon!
-So you see:
a. The mouth can launch the DEVIL’S WEAPONS.
b. The mouth can launch the LORD’S WEAPONS.
c. The mouth launches ALL SPIRITUAL WEAPONS, both Satan’s and Christ’s!
a. NO MATTER what we say WITH OUR MOUTHS.
b. We are launching WEAPONS OF ONE SORT OR ANOTHER.
-When we GOSSIP, BACKBITE, CRITICIZE, JUDGE, COMPLAIN.
-We are then, with OUR MOUTHS, LAUNCHING THE DEVIL’S WEAPONS.
-We then are joining Satan’s army; launching SATAN’S ARTILLERY.
-We then are helping HIM WIN THE WAR, by BLOWING PEOPLE’S HEADS OFF and BREAKING PEOPLE’S HEARTS.
-When we PRAISE, THANK, COMPLIMENT, ENCOURAGE, BLESS THE LORD!
-We then are LAUNCHING THE WEAPONS OF GOD!
-We then are JOINING JESUS’ ARMY; launching Jesus’ ARTILLERY!
-We then are HELPING GOD WITH THE WAR, by PUTTING PEOPLE’S HEADS BACK ON AND HEALING BROKEN HEARTS!
-BUT EITHER WAY:
a. We are launching spiritual weapons of one SORT OR ANOTHER!
b. And those WEAPONS must be God’s weapons and not Satan’s weapons!
-I invite you, I urge you, I command you on the authority of God’s Word.
-TO JOIN WITH ME, in DOMINATING THIS TURF with:
a. POSITIVE MOUTHS!
b. PRAISING MOUTHS!
-If you will:
a. THE ENEMY will be silenced!
b. You will join in MAKING SATAN SHUT HIS MOUTH.
c. And you will put yourself and everyone around you INTO A PLACE OF SPIRITUAL VICTORY in Jesus’ Name!!
-Remember the well-known words of Proverbs 18:21,
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that
love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
“MOUTHS AND TONGUES ARE LAUNCHING PADS OF
1. They are either RIGHT OR WRONG.
2. They either BUILD OR DESTORY.
3. They either leave a trail of DESTRUCTION OR ACCOMPLISHMENT.
4. They either can BUILD CONFIDENCE OR TEAR DOWN FAITH.
5. They either:
-Help Satan unleash His destructive forces.
-Or, they unleash God’s constructive forces.
-Life and death are in the power of the tongue. God bless you and enable you to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Amen!!!
