MORNINGTIME 3808by Benjamin Munsell on August 3, 2021
Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (BE VERY AFRAID). 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. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of JUDGMENT. (BE VERY ENCOURAGED). Matthew 12:31- 32,35-36. One of the (many) jobs of the Holy Spirit is to help you clean up your mouth, if you would like Him to. Is your language crude, does your mouth run faster than your brain, do you make comments or say things you quickly wish you hadn't? If any of this is you, the Holy Spirit would like to step in and help. He is a Gentleman and will not force you to do anything, but He most assuredly will give you a change of Heart, and mouth, to rid you of any and all traits not pleasing to the Lord. It could posable be in an instant your crude speech stops. But if not, it may take a while as you, for example, start to say something and the Holy Spirit says, "No", He'll give you enough time to not say what you were going to, and say it the "Right" way. At that very moment you will have a choice to Obey and not say, or to continue on, say the wrong thing, and soon thereafter repent and ask Forgiveness. It may take time to learn to recognize that "Still Small Voice", but every time you do listen, it gets easier to stop before you start. This "Purifying" covers everything in Life, not just speech. Heed the Call of the Holy Spirit all day long, in all areas of Life, and you too will be growing in CHRISTLIKENESS. When you fall down in disobedience, quickly Repent, get back up, and, Be Blessed.
