They laid hands on the apostles and put them in a public jail. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the gates of the prison, and taking them out he said, “Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple all the Words of this Life.” Upon hearing this, they entered into the temple about daybreak and began to teach. Acts 5:18-21.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

True life that is life indeed is in My Word. My Word is not just telling you about things as conversation, though it is that as well, but My Word is life. All life is from Me and exists in Me and I am My Word. I do not just speak My Word, though I do that, but I am the Word.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. John 1:1-4.

When  I speak I am in that Word and it has the power to heal and to deliver you.

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, and for His wonders to the sons of men! Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of His works with joyful singing. Psalm 107:19-22.

When you honor My Word you honor Me, when do not value My Word, you do not value Me, and when you reject My Word, scorn My Word, despise My Word, and make fun of My Word, you do so about Me. My Word is sacred and holy and it will make you sacred and holy.

I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. John 17:15-17.

My Words are life to those who find them and healing and health to all their flesh. My Word saves you, heals you, provides for you, sustains you, and delivers you. My Word is living and working in every part of you, spirit, soul, and body.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12.

My Word is so alive that My Word took flesh and dwelt among you and shed pure incorruptible blood that contained eternal life. And My Word spoke to you, preached to you, taught you, walked with you, healed you, saved you, delivered you, provided for you and blessed you. And My Word has a Name above every other Name: Salvation, which is Yeshuah in Hebrew and called Jesus in English. And My Word is the good news of Salvation, of the Kingdom, and of grace.

Speaking My Word of Life is so important that I sent My holy angels to free those who were willing to share this good news about the new way of life with others out of securely locked and guarded prisons just so they could continue to do so.

And Jesus can only return for His bride the Church when the gospel of the Kingdom has been preached to every nation. Matthew 24:14. This is very important. It is a matter of eternal life or eternal death, and that power of death and life are in the hand of YOUR tongue. What are talking about? Would I send an angel to let you out of prison so you could talk more? Selah.

In the early days of the church, soon after Pentecost, many signs and wonders were taking place among the people at the hands of the apostles and the new believers who joined with them in community. The people held them in high esteem and multitudes of men and women, were constantly added to their number. They even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on any one of them. And they were healed. And there were people from the cities in the vicinity of Jerusalem who were coming together, bringing people who were sick or afflicted with unclean spirits to the community of believers, and they were all being healed. Acts 5:12-16.

The chief priest and the Sadducees became jealous of this for the believers met daily in Solomon’s portico in the Temple, which they considered their territory, even though I made My house to be a house of prayer for all people. So they forbid them to continue teaching about Jesus and the new way, laid hands on the apostles and put them in a public jail. But during the night one of My angels of the heavenly host opened the gates of the prison, and took them out saying,  “Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple all the words of this Life.” Upon hearing this, they entered into the temple about daybreak and began to teach.

And even though the whole Sanhedrin met and commanded them not to continue teaching in the Name of Jesus, and even flogged them, they left rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name. And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they kept right on teaching and preaching Jesus as the Messiah. Acts 5:21-42. When you have the truth ratified by the resurrection of Jesus and the indwelling of the Spirit you are bold.

When I redeemed My people from the slavery of Egypt and was teaching them My Word as they came across the wilderness to the land I had promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for their descendants, I gave them a choice, and I give that same choice to every person from the beginning to the end of time as you know it, for it is what you do in time that determines where you are and what you do in eternity. Be careful how you are spending this short span of your life, it can have great reward, lesser reward, no reward, and worst of all, lost reward and lost entrance to My Kingdom if you refuse My Word and go with Satan’s word. Then you go with the one you serve. Your share your master’s destiny. Make sure your Lord is Jesus and spend eternity with Love and Light.

The choice I give you is to speak Words of life or words of death. By your words you are acquitted and by your words you are condemned. You will be judged for every idle, useless, evil word you speak. Moses presented it to the people this way:

“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days. Deuteronomy 30:15-20.

And the more of My Word you know, the higher the standard I hold you to in your speech and in your thoughts. When you read the Sermon on the Mount, which is a sermon about the inner man of the heart, for I am looking at hearts, you will see grace is not a lesser standard but a higher standard than the law of Moses for grace is lived from the inside out and not the outside in.

But this is not to be taken in a negative way but it also should not be taken lightly. Whether you speak and think words of life and blessing or words of death and cursing will determine the quality and caliber of your life. It will make the difference of whether you have joy in all your labors under the sun or whether you have days filled with fear, unease, grief, and toilsome labor.

Who is the man who desires life and loves length of days that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. Psalm 34:12-14; 1 Peter 3:9-11.

Your life should edify you and all you have the privilege to speak with, and especially those you are close to who you speak into daily. You have the Word of life, shine for all the world to see, that they too may run for the light of life.

Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as bright lights in the world, holding forth the Word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain. Philippians 2:14-16.

You have something to offer that I have given you as a treasure, the Word of life. Freely you have received, freely give. You are My treasure and so I gave you My treasure, My very self, which is My Word. And that is Covenant.

“As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring’s offspring,” says the LORD, “from now and forever.” Isaiah 59:20.

My Word is the most precious treasure I can give you. I so loved the world I gave you My Word made flesh so that all who believe in Him will never perish but have eternal life. I gave you My Word to heal and deliver you. I gave you My Word to save you. I gave you My Word to make you anew into the one I made you to be—a new creation in Christ, that is, a new creation in My Word. My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. Would you not want to cherish those words that make you into the you that you dreamed of being? The you that in all your daydreams of childhood you wanted to be? Happy, prosperous, famous, blessed and doing amazing things. That is all there for you in My Word and it is as close as your heart and your mouth. Why would you want anything else in your heart?

The wicked cut their lives short, but those who seek Me lack no good thing, including long life. My Word is wisdom and you know what wisdom has in her hands.

Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Proverbs 3:16.

When you share the Word of life that I have given you with others to bring them to life, you are valuable to Me as a good and faithful servant, a good steward of My Word and I will see to it that you have opportunities to preach and teach, to heal and bless. If you are put in prison, I will get you out by My angels, if you are stoned and left for dead, I will get you up unharmed, if you should die I will raise you up. If in your journeys teaching My Word they should give you deadly poison it will not harm you.

I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Psalm 118:17.

And if the serpent comes out to bite you, you will just pick him up by the tail and throw him out, or better yet, you will just trample him under your feet as you just walk on witnessing to My Word.

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.” Luke 10:19-20.

Those who said words of death in the wilderness at the edge of the promised land cut their lives short, delayed an entire nation from achieving its destiny at that time, and died wandering in the wilderness. Those who spoke My Words of life had long youthful lives and went in and enjoyed the conquest of the promised land, leading the entire nation of Israel to victory. You choose. Death and life are in the power of your tongue, and it could very well be that your entire nation is depending on what is coming out of your mouth. That was the case with Joshua, otherwise everyone of that generation would have died in the wilderness. Selah.

I love you. Speak life that you and your nation may thrive.

“Take to your heart all the words with which I am warning you today, which you shall command your children to observe carefully, even all the words of this Torah. For it is not an idle word for you; indeed it is your life. And by this word you will prolong your days in the land, which you are about to cross the Jordan to possess.” Deuteronomy 32:46-47.
