Why Choose Words Carefully

The picture we are looking at today, is one of a pool of water. In a forest, a pasture, at the end of your city’s rain water drainage system. A pool of water wider than the widest stride your legs are capable of, so you can not escape it. It is yours.

“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.” Proverbs 18:4

That’s the pool, formed by the words you speak. Now notice who is standing in front of the pool.

“A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calls for blows. A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, and they go down into the inmost body.” Proverbs 18:6-8

Oh. It’s a fool. How to make a fool of yourself?

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

The pool is not outside. The words we speak stay with us. The “inmost body” can also be translated as “rooms of the heart”. The words we speak run downhill and become the pool deep within us. The question now is, what is the fruit of stagnation?

E-U-my gosh. Gross.

“[The Lord’s words of wisdom] are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:22

When one of those “creeps on the earth” mentioned in Genesis cuts you off in traffic, or the boss makes another impossible demand, or you are just having one-of-those-days, just shut your mouth and don’t say it aloud.

Good words, living water. Bad words, dead water.

Is America Failing?

Romans 13:1 is an interesting verse. It says, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.”

Proverbs 12:22 says, “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal truthfully are His delight.”

Is there a contradiction?

A superficial look would say yes, but a deeper study reveals something else. But first another question. God’s grace used to hoover over America. Why has it failed in the last decade?

The lock to the answer. When our forefathers first came to this land they made a covenant with Almighty God. In return for the Pilgrim’s devotion and obedience to His instruction they would receive protection and prosperity. That is how a covenant works. That protection endured two World Wars, a Civil War, and rumors of wars. It also endured 43 presidents. Until a willful and arrogant Man rose from the sea and broke that covenant for the sake of popularity. As a result of his eight years, America no longer has a prayer.

The key in the lock. To paraphrase: “God’s favor is toward a wise leader, but His wrath is against him who endorses shame.”

The symptoms of failure are visible every night on the evening news. Cities are degrading into chaos, bankruptcy is overtaking farms, bakeries and churches are attacked by liberalism, young people are failing in life and resorting to violence, livestock has been sickened with mad cow disease and bird flu, homes are unsafe, streets and sidewalks worse, confusion reigns in D.C. and in liberal colleges, the job market is collapsing, a new disease or plague hits this nation every year, race riots and outrage are present in every city, reports of mold and mildew are at all-time highs, drought takes over more land each year, crops are destroyed, America is the laughing stock of Europe, terrorist rule, STDs are rampant, addictions to drugs alcohol record levels, adultery is celebrated, human trafficking thrives, foreign governments are buying up businesses and lands, churches are dying and truth has been supplanted by liberal idols of wood and stone, and your sons and daughters are being lost to perversion and what God calls abomination.

So what happened to God’s grace? All of the above is a paraphrase of Deuteronomy 28:15-36, the curse that results when a covenant is broken. When a covenant is broken a price must be paid. That is one of God’s spiritual laws and cannot be ignored.

A Sodomite in the Oval Office edited God’s word to suit his own ideology and the crap is hitting the fan.

Say What?

Zero visits. Zero reads. Zero followers. So why do I do this?

“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” 2 Timothy 4:2.

Hate the word “longsuffering”. It isn’t much fun. Too much like patience. Or fasting. Ugghh.

I am a student of scripture, I love finding the golden nuggets of wisdom buried within the dust. I am not a preacher. At least not this season. So I study and i learn to be ready.

Are You Paying Attention America?

 

We have been told that the American Dream is for everyone. We have been lied to.

On the news the other night was coverage of the protests outside a Trump Rally. Were you paying attention America? Did you see the truth of the “American Dream”? Did you see it again the next night, and the next day when families lined the street leading to a Trump Rally?

If you were paying attention, you saw violence, vandalism, outrage, and middle-school age children screaming F-bombs at passing Trump supporters. All of those faces are the same face, all of those protests are the same people who oppose Trump because he wants to build a wall to protect America and its citizens.

The faces of those rioters are all Illegals. Don’t think so? Watch the video again and pay attention to how many Mexican flags you see. Not American flags supporting a dream, Mexican flags supporting violence, outrage, and destruction.

Take a good look America. You will see it from Monte Bella High School in California to towns of North Carolina, outrage, violence and obscenities are what is coming to America. The so called American Dream is not to live in peace, it is to shout hatred in your face.

The confession you will never hear from Illegals or from the Gossip Weasels of the media. Every single one of the Illegals knew they were breaking the law when they crossed our border at night. The knew it, they know it, but refuse to acknowledge it. “Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right.”

Are you paying attention America? Obama’s hostile take over is working and Lady Liberty is being raped while you sleep.
