    Wrong words defile our hearts, then we can’t see God and all is impure!

    God speaks often about the crucial role of our words – how our salvation hinges on them,

    Matt 15:11 (Jesus) Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man (or woman); but what comes out of the mouth (our words), this defiles a man.
    Prov 13:3 He who guards his mouth preserves his life, But he who opens wide his lips will have destruction.
    Matt 12:37 (Jesus) For by your words you will be justified (regarded as innocent) and by your words you will be condemned (regarded as guilty). NKJV 12:37 Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation. MSGE
    Rom 10:10 ...It is by confessing with your mouth (and believing in your heart God’s words) that you are saved. NLT

    What kind of words defile us, when we speak them, and instantly separate us from God?


    ANGER - Cease from anger, and forsake wrath... Ps 37:8 …the wrath of man does not work the righteousness of God… Jam 1:19

    IMPATIENCE - For you have need of patience... Heb 10:36 by the, …Spirit of…patience… Gal 5:22
    PRIDE - Love is very patient and...never boastful or proud, 1 Cor 13:4 TLB Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God 1 Pe 5:6
    DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD - ...That you did not obey My voice. Jer 22:21
    LYING - Do not lie to one another... Col 3:9
    COVERING UP SIN - He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Prov 28:13
    COMPLAINING - Nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer. 1 Cor 10:10 Do all things without complaining and disputing, Phil 2:14
    UN-FORGIVENESS - For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matt 6:14
    ENVY - ...Envy is rottenness to the bones. Prov 14:30
    RETALIATION - Not returning evil for evil or reviling (bad mouthing) for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing 1 Pe 3:9
    FLATTERY - (False praise for an ulterior motive) ...With flattering lips and a double heart they speak. Ps 12:2
    SELFISHNESS - Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:4

    What happens to us the moment we speak words like these that we shouldn’t speak?


    Matt 15:11 (Jesus) Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth (our words), this defiles a man.

    Titus 1:15 To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure...(everything around us will now seem negative)
    Matt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. (the impure in heart who have been defiled by their words, can no longer perceive God in the Bible)
    Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it, for death (separation from God) or life (in God). AMP

    Unless we allow the Father of righteous words, “All the words of My mouth are righteous” Prov 8:8, to train our lips, to give us the tongue of the learned, our words will constantly fall into one or more of the above categories. We may wonder why we never see God the way some other Christians do. It’s because we pridefully keep control, and decide for ourselves what comes out of our mouth, and in so doing we stay defiled and separated from God by our words. Our own self generated, and influenced by Satan words will condemn us in the Day of Judgment unless we get right with God and allow Him to change us by His Life giving words, so that we stop defiling ourselves.


    What role does Satan play in inducing us to speak wrong words? Bigger than we know:


    Satan, who is the father of wrong words, “father of lies.” Jn 8:44, wants us to defile our hearts and separate us from God. He or his demons will attempt to feed lying thoughts into our thought lives. Fiery dart thoughts in one or more of the subject areas listed above, to get us to defile ourselves, and potentially defile others:


    Ps 39:1 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. KJV

    James 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity...it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell (Satan and his demons).
    Prov 17:14 The beginning of strife is as when one lets out water (wrong words): therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with (by Satan). KJV
    2 Cor 2:11 Lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices (his thoughts – we are to recognize this stranger’s voice and shun it).

    Are we all alone in this conflict? Not at all "Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them." 2 Kings 6:16. Who are those with us? God’s Angels, provided we are living in Christ: “Because you have made the LORD...your dwelling place, For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways”. Ps 91:9-10 and “Because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” 1 Jo 4:4.


    What do we need to do to insure that we don’t speak wrong words which greatly harm us?


    • We refuse to be deceived any longer about the enormous significance of our words:


    James 1:26 If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless.

    Prov 13:3 He who guards his mouth preserves his life, But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.


    • We make it our purpose to never speak words we know to be evil:


    Ps 17:3 ...I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.


    • We look to God in child like faith to alert us and preserve us from damaging words:


    Ps 141:3 Set a guard O Lord over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.

    2 Thess 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one (Satan with his thought suggestions of wrong words to speak).


    • We reserve our lips for giving God praise and thanks and for speaking His words:


    Ps 71:8 Let my mouth be filled with Your praise And with Your glory all the day.

    Eph 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    Acts 4:29 ...Grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word


    • We agree that God has ordained that we praise Him, to silence our spiritual enemies:


    Matt 21:16 (Jesus) From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise

    Ps 8:2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. NIV


    • We desire God to keep changing us, by His words and Spirit, to make us Christ-like in heart, and free us from our flesh with its wrong words - often induced by Satan:


    2 Cor 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face (heart), beholding as in a mirror (God’s words) the glory of the Lord (Jesus) are being transformed into the same image(of Christ) from glory to glory (line upon line, verse upon verse), just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

    Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man (including our mouth under the control of our sin nature) was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.


    • We value and believe, maybe for the first time, the words of God about our words.


    John 12:48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him - the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

    James 1:21-22 So...humbly accept the message God has planted in your hearts, for it is strong enough to save your souls. And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don't obey, you are only fooling yourself. NLT 3

    If we are willing to see our need for our heavenly Father to be the Lord of our lips, and present our mouth a living sacrifice to Him, He will work in us to speak His words! Amen

    Re: Wrong words defile our hearts, then we can’t see God and all is impure!

    Yes, we need to be mindful of what comes out of our mouths, but the conditions you set up are questionable.

    For example, why did God speak through Isaiah? He was a man of unclean lips - yet he saw God.

    5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.” 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

    Note who made Isaiah clean. It wasn't Isaiah.

    Furthermore, literally speaking His Words is Biblically equal to writing Scripture.
    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

  3. Re: Wrong words defile our hearts, then we can’t see God and all is impure!

    Hello brother keck553, I believe with Isaiah, “All of us have become like one who is unclean (including our lips), and all our (seemingly) righteous acts are like filthy rags (in the sight of God)… Isa 64:6. Apart from our Father we can do (including speak) nothing of any spiritual value. Isaiah “saw the Lord”, that He is Holy. Isaiah approached God in honesty about his condition, for real, the mask removed. The first inclination of his heart was to humble himself. This is the condition of heart our Father will not despise, the humble will hear and be glad, the humble the Father will teach. Anyone who is willing to do His will, will know His teaching. Worldly status, human intelligence, good deeds, avail nothing with God, men look on the outward appearance, the natural, and miss God altogether. God is a Spirit, and can only be known in our spirit or heart! The Lord our righteousness, all His words are righteous, and when we receive by believing the words He speaks to our hearts by His Spirit, we are made righteous including our lips! Jesus Christ the living word of the Father is made unto us righteousness! Jesus speaking, “you are clean (including your lips) in, by, and through the words I have spoken to you.”

    But now, O LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay (the tender, moldable, teachable heart) , and You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand (Your living word, Jesus Christ). Isa 64:8

    I (Your Father) create the fruit (the words) of the lips… Isa 57:19

    God bless you, “in Him”

    *** MOD NOTE ***

    If there is disagreement with the subject or contents of the OP discuss those disagreements using scripture to support your view. Do not post condemning tirades accusing posters of hypocrisy.

    This is a discussion forum. You may not like what someone says and disagree with it but that gives you no right or cause to be arrogantly, superior minded yourself as you demean, accuse and dismiss others. Especially when you refuse to discuss your opposing view with scripture.

    I have already moderated one post. Please don't force us to go farther.

    Discuss everything biblically and with respect toward each other.

    Right. I understand a humble state before God and the realization that our best efforts have severe limitations in relation to God. All Christians in relationship with God know that. But how does with your statement "wrong words defile our hearts and we can't see God..." reconcile with Isaiah 6? It is clear in Isaiah 6 that Isaiah had wrong words in his mouth and still saw God.

    If you could clear that up directly I would appreciate it.
