God: did not stutter when He said it…
St Matthew 5:37 (KJV) “But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil”.
It appears that we live in an apologetic age where at the drop of a hat someone has to apologize for inappropriate words that have been spoken. It’s reached such a state that it many folks have hired representatives to write apologies on their behalf.
What seem to be affecting our society is a lack of sincerity, basic etiquette and skills in manners; some might feel it might not be that important to enforce these teachings in younger ones. And as such failure in childhood escalates into society faux pas.
In a time when everyone believes they have to express themselves to be respected, the word of God spoken by Jesus indicates our communication ought to be “yea, yea; nay, nay”. Being prudent indicates that when we are held hostage by the forces of darkness, being led by the Holy Spirit to fight battles and as He gives us utterances speak. Instead we offer foolish genealogies and speak off the flesh, uttering words not acceptable to God.
Beloved Jesus states that anything spoken out of those simple words comes from evil; let not this be our lot: Heavenly Father we come against every perverse, foul and wicked spirit which seek to entice some of your people to speak evil on one hand, then glorify you in the next moment; Father you said in your words that this ought not to be so and as a holy God, we depend upon you to enforce the restraining power upon our tongues so that our words are seasoned with salt. Father in the name of Jesus, I pray for prudency for your people, so that whatever hindrance is standing before us will fall at your presence which we carry within us. You are God and I thank you for hearing and answering prayers in Jesus name. Amen.
