develop a taste for words

Develop a Taste for Words::: Any culture that communicates more through images and music than thru words is headed quickly backwards towards paganism.

 

Words are used to inform the mind. Images and music can be used to bypass the mind and manipulate the emotions. When our minds are lazy, we get the culture we deserve.

 

I’m not saying that images and art are wrong or that we can’t use them, but really that our motivation for action should be based on logic and the logos (the Word of God).

 

God doesn’t manipulate, because He doesn’t need to. His information is truth. His primary communication is with Words. He mainly uses dreams and visions as confirmations, or follow ups (seals) to His written or spoken words.

 

The Devils information is a lie, so the devil needs to use manipulation to communicate with us. This is why most paganism and idolatry is based on images, relics, icons, music, and art – instead of the words of truth.

 

Don’t let media & entertainment, or visuals & music dumb you down. Develop a taste for words.
Job 34:3

“For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.”

When the Word of the Lord is Declared

When the Word of the Lord is Declared

When the Word of the Lord is declared, we are judged by our response to it. The obedient speaker of the Word does not judge us – our own response to the Word judges us.

John 12
47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Time Factor in Sowing and Reaping

The judgement doesn’t show up immediately, but over time it does show up.

Galatians 6
6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Ultimate Judgement

Ultimately God shows up on the last day and his Word is fully manifested in judgement and in mercy depending on which side we are on in response to the Word of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 4
5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

It is important to discern the Rhema Word of the Lord in every season and respond favorably, obediently, and generously to the messengers that God has chosen to declare it.

God has never been mocked and never will be. Liars can’t keep truth down forever… Live and love truth at all times! It pays off!

Spiritual Retardation Among MEN

Men of God:

Our Father in Heaven has called us to build our lives and our houses on the solid Rock of His Word – and then when the wind and rain and storms come , we can take it and still stand.

He did not tell us to try and build a glass bubble around our house and field so that we never feel a raindrop or any windstorms. If you wait until you get your glass bubble up you will end up with nothing.

Spiritual Retardation is an abnormal delay of progress in development of your obedience to God’s Word.

Don’t be a spiritual retard concerning your purpose, or your work, or your ministry, or your wife, or your children. Find Gods written logos Word on it, Seek Him for a direct rhema Word on it, then JUST DO IT!

Seek God for your purpose – do it.
Seek God for your family – run it.

Matthew 7
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Matthew 4
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
