“The first qualification for delivering the Word of God is feeding upon the Word of God.”
Just yesterday, I received a call from a friend, who claims to be a Christian, and during that conversation, I had just a couple of minutes to hear what his heart was feeding upon during our conversation, for out of the abundance of his heart his mouth spoke (Luke 6:45).
After listening to this man’s conversation, I have to tell you that my shield of faith has enough slashes, chips and stab pokes on it that you would think it has been used by 1000 different soldiers in this battle of faith (Ephesians 6:16).
What must these people be feeding upon? It is clear that it is not the Word of God, which is the Bread of Life (John 6:35).
These men can tell you everything that is wrong and yet, when it comes to the Scriptures, they are daff (Hosea 4:6).
These want to see defeat to justify the unjustifiable concerning the wickedness that is found in their wicked hearts (Jeremiah 17:9), which comes out in their conversations.
Friends, I cannot find defeat in the Bible where men are born of the Spirit and are led in faithfulness to God (Romans 8:14, 37).
Furthermore, if our eyes are fixed on the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), Christians do not succumb, they overcome (Romans 8:37).
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” -1 John 5:4
These types of men can tell you of all the world events, which they love and who they hate when it comes to politics. They can tell you the names of all of their favorite sports heroes and movie actors, but when it comes to the Word of God, they are ignorant as can be, and that willfully. It is clear that they are feeding upon the spirit of the world (1 John 2:15-18). No wonder why no one wants to be around self-professed believers that do not believe (Matthew 23:3; Mark 8:15). They cannot give life when they are drowned in their own deceits of death.
There are two dogs in a ring and they are both to fight until the death. Which one will win (John 17:7; Matthew 6:22)? I can tell you, the one that you feed the most (Matthew 5:6).
These types have their eyes fixed on the world, not on the Christ (Hebrews 12:2). They feed upon the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life and the love of the world, which is the spirit of antichrist and then they wonder why their conversation is led is such a fashion rather than it becoming the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:27).
King David watched what came of out his mouth because he knew what was in his heart and he aligned his conversation with the Almighty.
“Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.”
Conclusion: Remember, friends, that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21).
