I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Alas, Lord LORD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, because I am a youth.” But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ because everywhere I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD. Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. Jeremiah 1:5-9.

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

The anointing hears but the anointing also speaks. The anointing teaches you how to speak and what to say. If you listen and learn from Me you will have good days for length of days, that is, forever.

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.

What am I telling you? If you want good in your life you must speak good and do good. You reap what you sow and grow what you plant.

The anointing puts grace upon your lips. Grace is My life in you. Like abiding in the vine, then the life of the vine flows into you and produces the fruit of the vine—the fruit of your lips. And it is a Spirit to spirit flow so we are looking at the fruit of the Spirit being produced in you.

You are fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured upon Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever. . . You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of joy above Your fellows. Psalm 45:2;7.

And what does grace sound like? Like Me, like the fruit of My Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23. You notice I do not call it “fruits” plural, but “fruit” singular. It all comes together as one, making the fruit of your lips and of your life. Every moment of your life, as you abide in Me, should have all those qualities wrapped together as one.

You should not be speaking rudely to people, love is not rude and does not give offense or take offense. Your words should impart grace to those who hear you, because grace is My divine life working life in you. Make your words anointed tools that do a divine work in the souls of those who receive your gracious words of truth. Speak the truth in love.

Let no rotten, unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:29-30.

If you ignore the teaching, directing, and leading of the Holy Spirit and override the checks in your soul when you continue to pursue idle, immoral, rude, malicious, and offensive speech, you will grieve and quench Him and He will be quiet since His input is being overridden by you. Do not ignore those checks in your spirit when you are pursuing ungodly comments and angry, strife-filled words. You can sear your conscience so you are no longer subject to any discipline in your words or thought life. You can lose control of your thoughts and words but this always ends in disaster for it will shipwreck the ship of your life.

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron. 1 Timothy 4:1-2.

My grace has appeared bringing salvation to all and instructing you to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of your great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for you to redeem you from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Titus 2:11-14.

This is not a time to play around in the enemy camp. Evil, ungodly talk lets in the devil and opens you to the realm of darkness which My Son gave His blood to rescue you from. Why return to slavery a second time?

When you find My Words you find life. Peter heard My Words flowing from the lips of Jesus and he knew there was no where else he could go to find the Words of eternal life. When the Pharisees and chief priests sent guards to arrest Jesus as He taught in the temple they returned without him. When the Pharisees questioned them, they responded that no one had ever spoken as Jesus did before. John 7:46. And that was enough to them to defy the rulers and not arrest Jesus. They had heard the words of eternal life.

No one has ever been as pure in speech as Jesus with no hindrance of sin in Him. But I tell you that you are just as He is in this world. He operated as one like you but born from above, but now all who believe in Him are born from above by the seed of My imperishable and eternal Word and anointed with the same Spirit with which I anointed Him. You can direct your words to accomplish a purpose, good or evil, and directed words have power. People understand this when they are directing insults, shaming, or scamming others. I want you to be as clever as snakes but innocent as doves, then I can crush Satan under your feet.

Do you desire good days filled with good things that bear fruit that endures and goes with you to the judgement seat of Christ, the anointed one? Then what do I tell you to do? 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.

I gave the Israelites I redeemed from the slavery of Egypt manna to eat every day in the wilderness where there was no food growing. It came down from Heaven on the dewfall every morning before dawn and had to be gathered in the early morning as well. Seek Me early. Every morning I want to give you the words for your day. Listen and gather them. Before they melt in the business of the day ungathered by you.

You shall remember all the way which the LORD your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD. Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. Deuteronomy 8:2-4.

I gave them continuous food where there was no food. I gave them clothes that did not wear out and their feet did not swell walking in that dry earth for forty years. And that supply did not come from physical labor or worry or their own efforts, it came from obeying My Word. What am I saying? Do not be too busy about gaining your livelihood that you forget My Word. It is My Word that will supply and sustain you. My Words are life to you who find them and health to all your flesh.

The Lord LORD has given Me the tongue of disciples, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. The Lord LORD has opened My ear; and I was not disobedient nor did I turn back. Isaiah 50:4-5.

Listen as a disciple, that is, with an open and teachable heart that has chosen to follow Me. Read My Word each morning and then stay quiet to hear what I am speaking to you for the day. I have a Word for you each day, and the anointing that abides in you speaks My Words to your spirit and gives you utterance of how to speak and what to say.

How you speak has to do with your intention, the motives and thoughts of your heart, and what you say has to do has to do with the fruit you are producing in your spirit and soul. How do you judge whether what you are saying comes from right or wrong, good or evil intentions? By My Word: 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.

Jesus explained that He does not judge you, but the Word He speaks judges you. In other words, your words are judged by My Words. Do your words and actions line up with My Words or are they contrary to My Words? And here you will discern the spirit of rebellion, the spirit of contradiction and testing, that you find in the sons of disobedience, that is, the children of the devil.

Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. John 8:43-45.

For who can endure the day of His coming when Christ returns, not to take away sins, He already did that in His first coming once for all, but coming for those who have received that forgiveness and made Him the Lord of their lives. And He is looking for the lit lamps of the anointing in each born again spirit. My love poured in your heart by the gift of the Holy Spirit becomes your love pouring back into My heart. And that is the parable He told of the ten bridesmaids. Five were foolish (the fool says in his heart there is no God and the fool loves to speak only what he thinks) and five were wise (all wisdom comes from Me and is expressed in you by My Word, for in My Word are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge).

It is My Word that is a light to your path and a LAMP to your feet. My Word is anointed and My Word is Spirit breathed. My Spirit will breathe My Word in you and light your lamp.

Remember on the day of Pentecost each believer received the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a tongue of fire that lit their hearts and gave them utterance. Tongues. Your tongue lit with the fire of Heaven that is upon the golden altar of incense before Me, the prayers of the anointed ones who are in the anointed One. His body, His church, My people, My treasure, My delight. By your words you will be acquitted and by your words you will be condemned. Speak My Words and make them your words and you will aways be acquitted for there is no condemnation for you who are in Christ Jesus for the law of the Spirit of life (My Words are spirit and life) has saved you from the law of sin and death.

I love you. Let My anointing teach you how to speak and what to say. How? Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD, and He will delight in the fear of the LORD. Isaiah 11:1-3.

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. 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 34:11-14.

“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the chief stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’” Zechariah 4:6-7.
