HOLD YOUR PEACE! Posted 060920 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: HOLD YOUR PEACE! It is written in Exodus 14.14: The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. O that ye would altogether hold your peace! And it should be your wisdom. Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is in vain. But I say unto you that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity; so is the tongue among your members, that it defileth the whole body and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. There is a time to rend, and a time to sow; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak. For he that will love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil and his lips that they speak no guile. Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the frut thereof. He that hath knowledge spareth his words, and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
Be not weary in well doing; for in due season ye shall reap, if ye faint not. Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto Me, and My peace, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. For I have not given you a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Submit yourselves to Me, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Turn you to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. Trust in Me with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Me and I will direth thy path. My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness.
Finally, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. If I be for you, who can be against you? Be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. Be of good courage, and I shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in your LORD. For your light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while ye look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are seen are eternal. Wherefore seeing ye also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset you, and run with patience the race that is set before you. For it is I that goeth before you, I will be with thee, I will not fail thee, neither forsake thee; fear not, neither be dismayed. HOLD YOUR PEACE! Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
