Here are a few more verses for you to consider:
“Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.” Proverbs 6:2
“Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.” Ecclesiastes 5:2
“In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” Proverbs 10:19
Over and over, the Bible makes it plain that fear, unbelief, and doubt are sin.
For most people, the more they talk, the more chance there is that they’ll start speaking fear, unbelief, and doubt.
“Spewing” is where words just start pouring out without thought or consideration – which means it’s highly unlikely that they are positive and creative words that are in line with God’s Word.
“Refraining your lips” means that you are careful to ensure your words are positive and creative and that they build up – both in your own life and in the lives of others.
Now, let’s bring it right on down – up close and personal…
“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.”
Jesus is plainly stating that whatever is in a person’s heart, that’s what they are going to talk about which is exactly what’s going to be manifested in their circumstances and affairs.
Next, let’s look at what the next two verses say (Matthew 12:36-37):
“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
What are “IDLE” words?
Idle words are words that are negative, fear-based, unbelief-based, and doubt-based.
IDLE WORDS BRING FORTH EVIL.
Idle words bring forth evil both in your life and in the lives of others.
In straightforward terms, you are going to give account for everything that you are speaking besides that which is good and that which blesses.
You’ll be justified on judgment day by the good that you brought forth through Godly, positive, faith-based words.
You’ll be condemned on judgment day for the evil you brought forth through ungodly, negative, fear-based, doubt-based words.
It’s pretty simple isn’t it?
Watch what you say.
Watch what you say because it matters in this world and it will matter in the next world.
