MORNINGTIME 2768 


 And when they bring you unto the SYNAGOGUES, and unto MAGISTRATES, and POWERS, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. Luke 12:11-12. I would like to illustrate a concept here being careful not to look like I'm adding anything to the Bible. The word "synagogues", is referring to church and church authorities. It was the church authorities who condemned and killed Christ, so don't expect all church authorities to be nice to Christians. The word "magistrates" refers to the legal and court system. Again, the Courts are coming after Christians trying to shut down the "voice" of Christ to the world. You may be next. And "powers", covers most anybody else wanting to silence Christians. Here's my illustration. Christians are always standing before the "court of public opinion" and will continually be Judged by and for the words they use in their Walk with Christ before a dead and dying world. Anyone who sees you and talks with you is "authorized" to judge you and decide for themselves if you speak the "Life Saving" Words of Christ, or not. Here's my point, ALWAYS consider yourself under someone's "microscope" as they judge you in your walk with Christ.  ALWAYS be Listening for the Holy Spirit to give you ALL the right words He wants you to say, TO ANYONE. Yes, He'll give you the words to say in the courtroom, but don't we "stand in court" before the world all the time anyway? Satan's always looking to trip up a Christian anytime he can, so always be on guard, always. He's the master of misunderstanding, and he'll turn ANY words you say against you if he can. Christ ALWAYS spoke as the Holy Spirit gave Him utterance, shouldn't we do the same? How much more effective would our Words be if everything we spoke was filtered through the Holy Spirit? If we asked Him to put a "guard" before our mouth? To speak ONLY His Words? What a Way to, Be Blessed.
