Be Careful What You Say—Isaiah 8:12

Must we confess, utter and repeat all the negatives being spewed out of the media? Have we forgotten the admonition of the Lord to take heed of what and how we hear? Have we disregarded the truth declared by the wise man in Proverbs 6:2 (AMPC)You are snared with the words of your lips, you are caught by the speech of your mouth

and Proverbs 18:21 (TPT)Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences.

Reflect on the conduct of Israel in the wilderness when the spies brought back the report of what they saw. The majority confessed what they saw, the minority held on to and confessed what God had said! We must not forget the impact of the negative report of this majority upon the entire nation and the consequence.

Tell them, As I live, says the Lord, what you have said in My hearing I will do to you: Your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness–of all who were numbered of you, from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against Me…But your little ones whom you said would be a prey, them will I bring in and they shall know the land which you have despised and rejected. But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall be wanderers and shepherds in the wilderness for forty years and shall suffer for your whoredoms (your infidelity to your espoused God), until your corpses are consumed in the wilderness…And the men whom Moses sent to search the land, who returned and made all the congregation grumble and complain against him by bringing back a slanderous report of the land,  Even those men who brought the evil report of the land died by a plague before the Lord. But Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among the men who went to search the land, lived still. Numbers 14:28,29, 31-33, 36-38 (AMPC)

I reckon we want to live through this present crisis, so take heed to yourself, what you say! Let the word of the Lord dwell richly in you and let us admonish one another so. Shalom.

Pastor Afolabi Oladele
