1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-22

“Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

EPHESIANS 2:13-18

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.”

GOOD OR BAD

A soft answer turns away wrath; But a harsh word stirs up anger.                                           The tongue of the wise useth knowledge rightly,                                                                      But the mouth of fools pours out foolishness. 

The eyes of the Lord are in every place,                                                                              keeping watch on the evil and the good. 

 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life,                                                                                           but deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.

The lips of the wise spread knowledge;                                                                                             but the heart of the fool does not.  

The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked,                                                                             but the prayer of the upright pleases Him. 

The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,                                                             but He loves him who follows righteousness.

All the days of the afflicted are evil, 

but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast. 

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord, 

but the words of the pure are pleasant. 

The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil. 

The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayers of the righteous.

NO WEAPON

**Isaiah 54:17

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against  thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from me, saith the LORD.

1 John 4:4 

Greater is God who is in me than he that is in the world.

James 4:7

* Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.

MISLEADING

 Jeremiah 23: 19 – 31

Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind; it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, untill he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart; in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran; I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

am I a God at hand, saith the lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that  I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. I have heared what the prophets said, who prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

How long shall this  be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are  prophets of the deceit  of their own heart, who think to cause my people to forget  my name for Ba’al.

The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath  my word, let him speak my word faithfully . What is  the chaff to the wheat? saith the lord.

Is not my word like a fire? saith the lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? 

Therefore, behold , I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbor. 

Behold, I am against  the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.

We are not, as so many, peddling the word of God. ( 2 Corinthians 2: 17)

WATCH YOUR MOUTH

  The tongue has the power of life, and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

It is better to bite your tongue, than to let it bite someone else.

A careless word always starts a strife, a cruel word will wreck someones life, a well spoken word will decrease some pain, while a loving word will heal and bless.

The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but, a deceitful tongue crushes ones spirit.

The tongue of the wise, commands knowledge, but, the mouth of the fool gushes folly.

A wise mans heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instructions.

A fools lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating.

The tongue is like a fire, that spreads a world of evil.

The tongue is a small part of the body, but makes a great boast.

No one can tame the tongue; it is restless, evil, and full of deadly poison.

A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.

Even a fool is thought to be wise, if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.

A fools mouth is his undoing, and his lips a snare to his soul.

If you think you are religious, and do not bridle your tongue, you deceive your own self and your religion is useless.

It’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, defiles a man.  All these sayings are scripturally based, and can be found in the book of James 1-3;Matthew 15:11;Proverbs 16, 17, 18, in the Holy Bible.
