One of the most important things that I had learnt over the years, as a Minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that, it’s better to always keep quiet; rather than opening the mouth to say worthless things. 

There are some Christians who are supposed to be keepers of the wisdom of God, but who do like to engage in uttering things, that do not build up their own faith and that of others around them. They will often say certain things because, they want to be seen as being socially acceptable to those in their world. 

They will talk about sickness as being something that God uses to humble people. But the scripture does not agree with them (Exodus 15:26). Sickness is from the devil, just as poverty is from the pit of hell. God is not the one making people poor. Most of the time it’s the lack of knowledge and understanding of the will of God, which the enemy is using to subject people into such conditions. 

But these carriers of God’s wisdom are basically trying to fit themselves into the world, which Christ had saved and delivered them from. By saying such things they are spiritually endangering themselves and others. 

We should make no mistake about it, that the devil does often sow his own seeds through those children of God, who have opened up their hearts to being used by him. Empty, worthless and faithless words do have the ability to destroy the faith of both the speaker and the listeners alike. Such words does has the ability to cause a lot of damage, to the spiritual growth of other Christians; most especially the new believers in Christ Jesus. 

And in most cases the enemy has sneaked in on those believers, because they had not been guiding their hearts (Proverbs 4:23).

Angels are on assignment over your words

As the Bible says:

“The words of a priest’s lips should preserve knowledge of God, and people should go to him for instruction, for the priest is the messenger of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.”

‭‭Malachi‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Every word that is being planted or spoken by the Minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, does has “the Lord of Heaven’s Armies” assigned to it. There are angels of God that has been sent on assignment, over every word that comes out of the mouth of the righteous man. 

These powerful spiritual beings are everywhere around you. They are listening to every word that you are saying, so as to bring the harvest of such words into your life, and into the lives of those listening to you also. They are ministering spirits who has been sent on assignment from the Father, to minister the grace of God over those seed-words from your lips (Hebrews 1:14). They can only do what they hear you say. The angels of God do not have their own will. They can only fulfill the will of the Father, as they hear you confessing it.

The Lord once warned the Israelites about their actions, and words in the presence of the angel. He told them:

“See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. Pay attention to him and listen to what he says. Do not rebel against him; he will not forgive your rebellion, since my Name is in him.”

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭23:20-21‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The angels of God do not act on their own authority. They act only on the authority that comes from God, the Father to them. Note that the scripture text above says – “.. my Name is in him.” The angels of God are always acting based on the authority of the Name, that you are called as a child of God. They do acknowledge the presence of God and the Name of Jesus in your life, and they will act only upon the confessions of your lips that matches up with the will of God. 

And if your words are not matching up with the person who you really are, they are greatly concerned about it (Psalms 8:4-6). Also if your words are not in line with the perfect will of God for your life, they have the authority from the Father to judge those words until you fall in line with God’s perfect will. That was why God warned the Israelites that the angel will not forgive their rebellion. Angels have the authority of Heaven to judge every rebellious words from the lips of a believer in Christ. 

The Bible told us about Zachariah, the father of John the Baptist, who once misspoke in the presence of the angel of God. Angel Gabriel had been sent to him in fulfillment, of the purpose of God concerning the birth of John the Baptist. Zachariah had responded to the message from God with an unbelieving lips. He struggled to believe the message from the angel (Luke 1:18), that he was to have a son in his old age. 

Zachariah and Elizabeth had been standing by faith all their married lives together for a child. Zachariah was a Priest of the Almighty God. His lips were supposed to be guiding and uttering the wisdom of God. But at the moment of the visitation from God in response to his faith, he allowed unbelief to come out of his mouth. The angel knew that if he did not shut up this Preacher’s mouth, he would had kept on confessing the wrong things, about the perfect will of God for Israel and the whole world. 

The scripture says:

“And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:19-20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Zachariah was unable to speak until the fulfillment of the promise of God. The angel did not want him to use his mouth as an instrument of the devil. He had to judge the unbelief that came out of his mouth. 

There are a lot of Christians like Zachariah today, who are blocking their own miracles and breakthroughs with their lips. 

As Jesus said:

“Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God. But he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:8-9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Whoever” in this context does not even refer to the believer alone. Jesus was referring to anyone, who will dare to believe and confess His perfect will here on the earth. The angels are in agreement with every confession of your mouth, that are in the will of God. But they cannot enforce worthless words, that are in obvious denial of God’s purpose for men and women on the earth. 

Don’t give room to the devil 

The only angel that does act on his own authority in rebellion against God, is Satan and the demons who are working together with him. They are listening to what comes out of your mouth also. Satan and his cohorts are empowered by the worthless words, that people around you may be consciously or unconsciously saying. 

Be very careful of the people with whom you are associated. Their words around you are like seeds which can affect your harvest from the Lord. Their different lifestyles has the ability to affect the anointing of God over your life also. 

The devil and his demons are there to make sure that, those fear based words becomes harvested in your life. And they are very subtle and deceptive in the way, that they operate to entrap Christians into captivity. A child of God needs to be very careful with what people are saying constantly around him or her. Sooner or later you may start believing in those lies of the devil, if you’re not being very careful. 

The angels of God cannot do anything to stop the demonic forces, from enforcing the wrong words from your mouth. Fear based words brings death. And faith based words brings life and the Shalom (peace) of God:

“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

What you’re sowing on a regular basis is what, you will eventually harvest in your life on the earth, and in eternity with God also. 

The Preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ does him or her self no good at all, if he or she preaches a good sermon in the Church; but then starts sowing fear based words outside of the Church into his community. That’s how carnally minded Preachers do often behave. They will present one thing from the pulpit, but they won’t do anything to live by the standard, that they are setting for others within their congregations. They are living a double life. And such should never expect anything from God in the harvest. 

You can’t be declaring the blessing of the Lord in the Church, but outside of the Church when you are with your acquaintances in the world, you begin to speak like them. That’s what a double minded Christian does (James 1:5-8). They talk about the blessing with God’s people, but when they are confronted with the reality of their circumstances outside the Church, they will begin to sow the seeds of the curse and unbelief. They will begin to speak like the very people, that God has sent them to in transforming their lives into His own image. Eventually what they are sowing among such people is what they will reap in the harvest. 

As John the Baptist said:

“And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Those types of seeds will eventually hurt and destroy those who are sowing them. As a Christian you are the light of the world. You are not the light just for the Church, but your light is meant to be shining in the world that, you go into on a regular basis for the Father’s business. The world is longing for your light to shine among them. There is no way for light and darkness to mix together. You can never fit into that world, no matter how hard you try to fit into it. You are light and not darkness. Live like a child of the Light. 

That’s why as a child of the Light, you ought not to be opening your mouth, to speak about the things that God has not told you to talk about. You should rather focus on sowing the seeds that will make Heaven glad, instead of seeking to gratify the desires of the flesh in others. If you do this continually, your light will shine brighter and brighter. And before you realize it, you will find yourself in the midst of the harvest with those words.
