The Word and Your Mouth

For with the heart man be­lieveth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation…  Romans 10:10

For verily I say unto you That whosoever shall SAY unto this moun­tain, Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAITH…   Mark 11:23

Death and life are in the power of the tongue…   Prov 18:21

          It is vitally important to say the Word as well as pray the Word.  It is the Word that drives back the powers of darkness.  It is the Word that whips the devil and negates demon forces.  Speaking the Word is the way for your de­liverance.  However, the Word you speak must be the Word you believe.  If you do not believe the Word will actually work, guess what? It won’t. 

The Miracle-Working power of the Word is ener­gized and released by your believing and by your speaking.    

What Words Do 

              Words create, words destroy, words generate life, words kill and wound.  Words change things.  Words are carriers.  Words bring things in.  Words take things out. Words are vehicles.   Words heal.  Words can hurt.  Words are tools.     Words produce.  Words are seeds that will grow stuff.

              How you live today was determined by the words you spoke in the past. Words activate spiritual forces.  They move angels to minister to you or they move demons to torment you… to steal from you… to destroy you… to kill you.

              Words come out of your mouth.  The words that come out of your mouth are declarations of your faith. Words you speak with your mouth frame things. 

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God…   Heb 11: 1-3    “Framed” means to “com­plete thoroughly.”

              When you speak the Word of God in faith, you connect with the creative power of God and are enabled to release it.  You actually release the Faith of God.   The Word of God is the written expression of God’s faith.  The Word is a Divine record of words God has spoken that released His faith and His Creative Power. 

Words also release authority.  The centurion issued orders (words) and his men obeyed… they did something.

For I am a man under au­thority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.   Matt. 8:9  

          God spoke words and myriads of worlds were created.  All of Creation literally came out of God’s mouth.  

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Gen. 1:3  

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. Gen. 1:6  

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. Gen. 1:9    

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit af­ter his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. Gen. 1:11  

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: Gen. 1:14  

And God said, Let the wa­ters bring forth abundantly the mov­ing creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. Gen. 1:20  

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. Gen. 1:24  

“With the mouth confession is made unto salvation…”   (Rom 10:10) Your tongue makes things.  Your tongue causes things to happen.  Your tongue moves spirit beings.  Your tongue produces life or generates death. 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue…  Proverbs 18:21. 

          Words call things in.  Words drive things out.  Words bind and words loose.  Words attract and words repel.  Words are confessions of the mouth. 

Words Release God’s Power

          When you speak God’s Word, your mouth and your tongue ac­tually release the supernatural anointing that the Word carries.  The anointing or the miracle-working power in the Word of God is manifested when there is a demand placed upon it.  It is THERE, but it will not be HERE unless a de­mand is placed upon it. 

The anointing is always present, but it is not manifested until you make a demand on it.  Your demand is an expression of your faith.  Faith must be expressed.  (Remember, the Word is the written expression of God’s faith).  Making a demand on the anointing is the way to activate the Word of God.  

Here is how you make a demand on the Word:

          1.  Believe in your heart.  Know that you know that you know…down in your “knower”… this is revelation.

          2.  Say WORDS that will Confess exactly what you are believing for.

The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart; that is the WORD OF FAITH which we preach (say)…Rom 10:8

          3.  ACT on your CONFESSION… what you SAY.  This is faith with works.  Faith with works is faith that works.  Faith that works will cause you to live and keep you from dying.

Be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves…  James 1:22  

Even so faith, if it hath not woks, is dead being alone.  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works; shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works…  James 2:17-18 

          FAITH (pistis) connects with the anointing that is always present in the Word of God.  Faith, when it is mixed with the Word, always produces results. 

For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.   Heb 4:2 

Words activate devils and demons

          Just as words you say release the power of God, words you say can also activate devils and demons.  Words you speak can literally give the devil and demons “permission” to torment you.  Words you say invite them in or drive them out.  Words you say bind them up or set them loose.  Jesus used words to drive out demon powers.

And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.  Matt. 17:18  

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.  Luke 4:35   

          Words are actually commands.  You are literally commanding spirit beings and spirit powers by the words you speak.      Words open things up and words shut things down.  Words bind and words loose.  Words are impor­tant.  This is why idle talk is extremely danger­ous.

But I say unto you, That every idle  (argos: inactive, unem­ployed, lazy, useless, barren) word that men shall speak, they shall give ac­count thereof in the day of judgment.    Matt. 12:36  

          This is because words are life-changing forces.   Words are eternal.  Words live forever.  Words you say with your mouth never die.  They are eternal.  They are forces that stay in motion forever.  This is why we will all give an account of every inactive, unemployed, lazy, useless, and barren  word that we speak on the Day of Judgment. 

Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. Psa. 141:3 

              It is better to be silent than to speak words that assist Satan.  It is better to be quiet than to speak words that will forever give place to the devil.   Someone remarked:  “My most prized possessions are words I never spoke.”

I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.  Psa. 39:10   

What a Word   Is

              The word “word” presup­poses that something is said.   A word becomes a word when it is spoken.  A word is a vehicle of communication.  Words convey information.  Words are commands and demands.  A word is  “sound” that is spoken out loud.  Words are sounds that are intelli­gently articulated. 

              Words begin somewhere.  They are conceived be­fore they are spoken.  The conception is not birth.  Words are conceived in the heart and birthed through the mouth.  Words come out of the mouth but they are born in the heart.

              According to the Bible, words frame things.   By Him (Jesus the Living Word) all things consist.  Without Him (the Living Word)  was not anything made that was made.  The Word creates.  Words that are confessed out of a heart of faith (belief) produce salvation (deliverance).  A word can become the Word.  A word becomes the Word when it agrees with God’s Word. 

Kinds of Words

          There are wimp words and there are warrior words.  There are weak words and there are strong words.  There are words that say things are that are not.  There are words that say things are not that are.  (You might want to read the preceding sentences over again). 

          There are flippant words and there are faith words.  There are shallow words and there are profound words.  There are life words and there are death words. 

          All words come out of the mouth and they are confessions of what is really in one’s heart.  What you confess you will ultimately possess.  Words you speak are what will come to pass.  What you say is what you get.  What you say is what you order.  What you say is what is coming to you.   

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatso­ever he saith.   Mark 11:23  

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. Prov. 6:2  

The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble. Prov. 12:13  

A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompense of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him. Prov. 12:14 

 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. Prov. 13:2        

              You will ALWAYS live on the LEVEL of your MOUTH!

Say What You Believe

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession (Homologia:   confession; acknowl­edgment)is made unto salvation.  Rom 10:10 

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, where­unto thou art also called, and hast pro­fessed a good profession before many witnesses.  1Tim. 6:1  

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, con­sider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; Heb. 3:1  

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Heb. 4:14  

Let us hold fast the profes­sion of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Heb. 10:23  

          Say with your mouth what you believe.  Say with your mouth what you are believing for.  This is confess­ing your faith.  You have the power and authority to call those things that be not as though they were (as though they already exist).  

 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Rom. 4:17   

Confessions that are connected with the Word of God are important.  Over the years I have developed some Word confessions that have proved effective in times when I really needed God to come through for me.  Here is one that I keep in the cover of my Bible.

Word Confession

          I believe with all my heart and I confess with my mouth that the WORD of GOD is TRUE.  The WORD of GOD is ETERNAL.  The WORD of GOD is ALIVE.  The WORD of GOD is CHANGELESS.  I choose this day to set my life in agreement with the Word of God.  I choose right now to set my life in opposition to the devil.  I choose to disagree with Satan, the world system and all the powers of dark­ness.  I say with my mouth and believe with my heart that I am a Child of GOD.  Because I am a Child of God I am a Child of the LIGHT and I hate darkness.  I COMMAND my PHYSICAL BODY to resist sickness, weakness, infirmity, disease, and stress.  I COMMAND my mind to think in line with the Word of God.  I COMMAND my tongue to speak the Word of God.  I CAST OUT every spirit of fear by RELEASING the PERFECT LOVE that is within me through the HOLY GHOST.  I refuse to worry, be anx­ious, get upset, be impatient, or to doubt.  I am at this very moment a POSSESSOR of DIVINE LIFE.  My MIND is SOUND and STABLE and my PHYSICAL STRENGTH is being RENEWED day by day.  I am not getting OLDER… I am getting BETTER.  I am not growing weaker, I am growing STRONGER.  All of my needs have already been met and I am lacking in absolutely nothing.  I am DWELLING in the SECRET PLACE of the MOST HIGH and I am ABIDING under the SHADOW of the ALMIGHTY.  The LORD is my strength.  The LORD is my refuge.  The LORD is my fortress.  The LORD is my GOD and in HIM ALONE will I trust.

Say What You Want to See

          In every conflict with the en­emy speak powerful words of faith and confidence.  Say what you want to see.  Say what you want the outcome to be.  Make your words agree with God’s Word and then continually say them. You need to hear them.  When you hear what you say, faith will rise up in you.  When you speak the Word, you hear the Word and “faith cometh”  because faith comes by hearing the Word.    

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Rom. 10:1

          David confessed that God would deliver him and he made this confes­sion before he confronted the giant.

He will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine…   1Sam 17:37

          He said the same God Who had delivered him out of the mouth of the lion and the paw of the bear would deliver him out of the hand of the uncircumcised Philistine.  After David made this powerful con­fession of his faith, he based his ac­tions on what he had confessed.  He SAID and then he DID. 

          Make your confes­sion and base your actions on what you confess.  Say what you are going to do and then do what you say.

          How are you talking?  What are you saying?  Is your mouth speaking what is in your heart? Are you saying what you want to see?  If you will con­tinue saying what you want to see you will soon see what you are constantly saying.  The words of your mouth will determine the outcome of your battle.

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth..   Prov. 6:2  

          The size of your giant has noth­ing to do with it. Nothing is TOO HARD for GOD.  God and ONE are always a majority.  Stop complaining and feel­ing sorry for yourself. Make your most powerful confession in the face of your biggest enemy.

          Listen to what David said… this was his confession:

“The Lord will deliver thee into my hand…”

“I will smite thee and take thine head from thee…”

“I will feed you and the Philistines to the buzzards…”

“The battle is the Lord’s…”

“He will give you into our hands…”

           David got exactly what he said.   His mouth framed his victory.  His words spelled defeat for Goliath.  What he said, he got.  What he confessed, he possessed.  But remember… he was in the flow. He was in the will of God.  He had a heart toward God.  You can get what you say just like David did.  But you must have a heart like David had.

Nullifying the Anointing

          You can PREVENT the ANOINTING from working.  You can stop the anointing.  You can hinder the anointing.  You can limit the anointing.  You can nullify the anoint­ing.  People (not situations, churches, things or circumstances) stop the anointing. 

Doubt and Unbelief are limiting factors of the anointing.  Doubt is the opposite of faith.  Doubt motivates demons while faith activates God’s Word.

Doubt: diakrino; to withdraw from truth;  to oppose; to strive with; to dispute; to contend; to hesitate. 

Doubt is a lack of confidence in God and in God’s Word.     Jesus did not perform miracles because of the unbelief of some.  The disciples were limited in miracle-working power by unbelief. 

And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.  Matt. 13:58  

Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?   Matt. 17:19  

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as (like) a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and noth­ing shall be impossible unto you.   Matt. 17:20   

Carnal living nullifies the anointing. 

          Wrong thinking from a mind that is not renewed nullifies the anointing.  Instability, fickleness, wa­vering, worrying, being fearful… all these nullify the anointing.  Remember, fear is faith in the devil. 

          Being mean, mad, unkind, dishonest, stingy, and disobedient to God… all these will nul­lify the anointing.  Nothing is wrong with the Word you confess.    It is the SAME.  It never changes.  Circumstances will not change it.  Situations will not change it.  People cannot change it.  However, careless people can keep the anointing from flowing from the Word to the place of need… even if their confession is good.

          Words are powerful forces.  They will cause you to live or they will make you die.  They are alive.  They carry energy.  They motivate angels and they activate devils.  They hook up with God or they line up with the world.  They will bring salvation and deliverance or they will insure bondage, defeat, death and destruction. 

          Words are deeds.  You will have what you say and you will become what you confess.  Wash your words with the Water of the Word.  Filter them through the heart of God.  Do not speak if what you say is linked to hell instead of heaven.  Understand that we will all give an account of all the words we speak before God at the Judgment.  We will be held accountable for what our words did.  If they produced life and health and victory and righ­teousness, we will be rewarded accord­ingly.  If they caused death, defeat, hurt, pain, sorrow, and anything that is not godly, we will be held account­able. 

          Words need to be sanctified.  Words need to be framed with care.  Words are gifts from God that we can employ to heal, help and save.  I chal­lenge YOU to make a covenant with God NOW that you will set a watch upon your lips and that you will guard your tongue to speak and say only those words that will produce LIFE and GOOD. 

My Word Covenant with God:

          “Father God, in the Name of Jesus, I choose this day to set a watch over my lips and a guard over my tongue.  I choose to speak words of life and health and healing and salvation.  I choose not to speak idle words that kill, destroy, hurt, and hinder.  I com­mand my tongue to line up with the Will and Word of God.  I will be silent before I will speak death.  I will shut up before I say words that hurt and wound.   I will filter my words through Your Word and I will say only those words that You would say.  This is my solemn covenant with You this day.  In Jesus’ Name.
