Join us today as we discuss the power of our words. Cynthia Martin and Patsy Shreve share at least once a week what is on their hearts.

Hey welcome to lunch and learn I'm
Cynthia Martin and I'm Patsy Shreeve and we're going to be your host today.
00:12
Our session today is about the power of
00:15
our words
00:16
and today we're going to look at what
00:18
the word of God says about the power of
our words I know as children you know
most of us remember saying or hearing
somebody else say sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. yeah well, there are bratty little girls.
00:36
but well we're gonna find out today
00:39
as we're gonna see that this really
00:41
isn't true
00:42
i mean it's simply not true words do
00:44
hurt us
00:45
words hurt us and it hurts others and
00:48
once they're released
00:49
then they can't be put back in they're
00:52
there
00:53
and if you think about a tube of
00:55
toothpaste and i know i've seen this
00:57
demonstration before like in
00:59
youth groups and everything and and you
01:01
take a tooth tube of toothpaste and you
01:03
squeeze all the toothpaste
01:05
out well then you hand the tube of
01:07
toothpaste to somebody and say okay go
01:09
ahead now try to put all that toothpaste
01:10
back in
01:11
right and you can try as hard as you
01:13
want you might get a little bit back in
01:15
but you won't get all that toothpaste
01:17
back in that tube
01:18
right so it just won't work to get all
01:21
of that back into the
01:22
tube um and our words are kind of like
01:26
that once they've been released into the
01:28
atmosphere
01:29
they're there they are empowered and
01:31
they're
01:32
either empowered by god for blessing and
01:35
for good
01:36
and for encouraging or their um
01:40
empowered by the enemy for cursing for
01:43
negative for um for
01:46
negative results in our lives or in the
01:48
lives of others
01:50
and i heard this story a long time ago
01:53
and i even looked it up to check it out
01:55
to make sure that it was true
01:56
right and um it's a story about a ham
01:59
operator
02:00
you know the the ones that can receive
02:03
messages
02:04
through their radio system and so he was
02:06
operating his ham radio
02:08
and picking up uh you know talking to
02:09
his friends and talking to different
02:10
people
02:11
when all of a sudden this message came
02:13
um out of the blue and he was receiving
02:15
this message
02:17
and it was very odd he couldn't figure
02:19
out what it was
02:20
it was i think in another language if i
02:23
remember correctly i think it was in
02:24
german
02:24
and he was trying to figure out what
02:26
this message was and what was going on
02:28
and and so he he just kept receiving it
02:32
over and over and over
02:33
so he got his friends to come and to
02:35
listen to find out what this was
02:38
and one of them said wait a minute
02:40
that's german and so they got somebody
02:41
to interpret it
02:43
and it was a message they figured from
02:46
world war
02:47
ii that was released into the atmosphere
02:51
during world war ii and was up there in
02:54
the atmosphere someplace
02:55
and was finally being received by this
02:58
ham
02:59
operator and so it showed me and
03:01
indicated to me
03:03
that our words are out there in the
03:04
atmosphere sometimes sometimes they're
03:06
not received right away but sometimes
03:08
they are and when we release them
03:10
they're there and i was just you know i
03:13
mean this story was just astounding to
03:14
me just to think about
03:16
because it really caught my attention to
03:18
think well those words are out there
03:19
and they're there someplace and they are
03:22
and they can
03:23
now have an impact on someone else yeah
03:26
and you know patsy i mean we can stop
03:28
right here i mean this is our whole
03:29
lunch and learn today
03:30
because you know really we can just pick
03:32
this apart because you know you think
03:34
about that
03:34
our words never die is what we're saying
03:37
they never end
03:37
they go round and round and round you
03:39
know i've been watching a lot of uh
03:41
programs about space i don't know why
03:43
but um uh
03:45
i'm not a space person either probably
03:46
my husband isn't but i've been really
03:48
you know getting into
03:49
um watching some of these movies over
03:51
and over again and
03:52
you know you think about these these
03:54
rockets going around and around
03:56
the the earth when they were learning to
03:58
try to go to the moon and all that kind
04:00
of stuff
04:00
but that's you know in my mind that's
04:02
what i'm envisioning these words are
04:03
just out there
04:05
and you know um and i mean
04:08
i just that to me so what
04:11
power you know when we say something
04:15
to put a watch before our mouth is this
04:16
really something that i want to go on
04:18
forever oh my i'm in trouble yeah
04:22
you know so um because our words have
04:25
power
04:26
because we're created in his image i you
04:28
know
04:29
this is such a huge revelation to me
04:31
when i learned this so many years ago
04:33
see god spoke the world into existence i
04:36
always say well all we need is
04:37
genesis and we got everything we need
04:39
because i have a few favorite books
04:40
right and genesis is one
04:42
of them but you know he spoke the world
04:44
he took chaos and he spoke
04:46
order into it he created out of
04:48
nothingness
04:50
with his words then the word tells us
04:52
that we're created in his
04:53
in his image right um which
04:57
will really i mean i can go on and this
04:59
alone can be a teaching but
05:00
hebrews 11 3 tells us i'm going to quote
05:03
this out of
05:04
the esb which is the english standard
05:06
version which is unusual for me because
05:08
i usually use the niv but
05:10
this uh worked out really well by the by
05:12
faith we understand that the universe
05:14
was created by the word of god
05:16
so that what is seen was not made
05:19
out of things that are visible right
05:23
let's say that again it's to me it's
05:26
like it's backwards but
05:27
how they pronounce they say it it was
05:30
made out of let me put it in cynthia
05:33
version here
05:34
the word the world and the universes
05:37
were made out of what was not seen right
05:40
it was made out of things that wasn't
05:43
and he created it out of nothingness and
05:46
so
05:46
what did that the power of god's word so
05:50
today as we go through this i want you
05:52
to start thinking about the power of the
05:54
words that you speak
05:56
the power of the words that have been
05:58
spoken over you and the power of the
06:00
words that are being spoken into the
06:02
universe today
06:03
you know i do a big teaching um at my
06:05
church um
06:06
my husband and i are associate pastors
06:08
and um
06:10
one of one of my responsibilities is the
06:12
prayer in the church and i teach prayer
06:14
i'm trying to lead people into
06:16
experiencing more of prayer but even in
06:18
prayer we have this power to create and
06:21
i don't want to go into that because i
06:22
can go into a big place with where
06:24
words can go with power but see we are
06:27
in his image um partly be partially
06:31
because of the power
06:32
that we have with words right not only
06:34
do should we look like him act like
06:36
him feel like him we should speak like
06:38
him we should
06:39
create like he can um you know and you
06:43
you've heard people say oh you know
06:46
they're part of the name of claimant
06:47
club you know
06:48
i i don't like that it has a negative
06:50
connotation to it but there is some
06:53
truth in the name it claimant
06:55
club there are other things besides
06:57
naming it and claiming it but speaking
06:59
it
06:59
has the power to create and only
07:03
man this is interesting too think think
07:05
about this
07:06
only man has the ability to communicate
07:08
through this broken word
07:10
right this is a powerful and unique gift
07:12
from god when
07:13
adam gave when god created the universe
07:16
he created this
07:16
beautiful place the earth and the garden
07:19
and the animals and everything right it
07:20
was perfect
07:21
then he sent man in there right and only
07:24
man
07:25
uh this day you know i don't know you
07:27
know what you believe about back in the
07:28
garden maybe all the animals
07:30
spoke then but man is the only one
07:33
who is powerful enough and unique enough
07:35
to be like god that we can speak
07:39
amen so one of the things that we have
07:43
to
07:43
understand and realize because of the
07:45
power of our words
07:47
we can use them to either destroy
07:50
or to build up yeah to create or to tear
07:54
down
07:55
and in proverbs 18 21 it says death
07:58
and life are in the power of the tongue
08:01
and those who love it will eat its
08:03
fruits
08:04
so we have to be cautious about our
08:07
words we have to be
08:09
conscious of our words what we're saying
08:12
are we how are we using our words are we
08:15
using them
08:16
um to bring life to people
08:21
love blessing compliments victory
08:24
encouragement
08:25
or are we using them to bring death
08:28
hatred
08:29
condemnation judgment complaining defeat
08:32
slander all these things that can tear
08:35
people down and tear us down even
08:37
against ourselves we have to be cautious
08:39
that we're not speaking
08:40
these things over ourselves right
08:42
because not only do they have an impact
08:44
on others they have a negative impact on
08:46
us and can bring death to us or life to
08:49
us
08:50
and we'd want to speak life we want to
08:53
be a blessing
08:54
we want to encourage that's what the
08:55
word of god says to us
08:58
words are so important that we're going
09:00
to have to give an account
09:02
of what we say when we stand before the
09:04
lord someday
09:05
in matthew 12 36 and 37
09:08
tells us that wow patsy again you're
09:12
you know what you just said we could we
09:14
could unpack this all day and spend
09:16
all day talking about this but there's
09:18
just a couple of things i thought of
09:19
when you're
09:19
when you're talking about it first of
09:21
all if you
09:22
you have been one let's say you just
09:24
started out on your journey as becoming
09:26
a holy to
09:27
totally holy sold out to the lord or
09:30
maybe you're just starting to realize
09:31
well there's more
09:32
to this than fire insurance as i put it
09:35
um
09:36
don't let the enemy put you in guilt
09:38
right because right
09:39
right now god is giving you a chance to
09:41
make a make a repentance and turn and go
09:44
the other way
09:45
um he's he's saying okay uh don't beat
09:48
up over what was
09:49
let's talk about what's gonna be so
09:51
don't you know i just wanna
09:52
encourage you don't turn us off because
09:54
you're like oh that's too late for me
09:56
i've already done it because
09:57
you know god is about redemption amen
10:00
secondly
10:01
i wanna uh patsy and i had a few of the
10:05
same mentors
10:06
right three of them that i know of um
10:08
particularly
10:09
and one of those mentors um has
10:12
graduated i say and one has went on to
10:14
her reward
10:16
and she had a great impact on both of us
10:18
um but
10:19
she in this way and in the area of
10:21
forgiveness words and blessing
10:24
you know i would i would group those
10:25
three is probably some of the most
10:26
powerful
10:27
and what she used to say which i didn't
10:30
quite get but now i get
10:32
you know it takes you sometimes a while
10:33
or does me to marinate in something
10:35
before the light bulb comes on
10:37
so she would say you know the power of
10:39
our words god
10:40
loves it you know when we talk about him
10:42
he comes and joins us
10:44
when we build him up isn't that what the
10:46
scripture says when we worship him when
10:47
we praise him he comes and
10:48
enters in but she used to say this is
10:51
where i would be like i don't get it
10:53
but she'd say but he also loves it when
10:55
we build each other up
10:57
he comes and joins the conversation when
10:59
we're pouring on the blessing when we're
11:01
pouring on the encouragement when we're
11:02
pouring on life when we're pouring on
11:04
victory when we're importing on
11:05
encouragement he comes and joins us and
11:08
i'd be like
11:08
i don't get it why would he do that who
11:10
are we and i did i don't think at the
11:12
time i really had a true understanding
11:14
of who we
11:15
are um in our relationship uh
11:18
to uh the master having that
11:21
that ability to speak those words of as
11:24
patsy just said love and blessing
11:26
compliments victory encouragement
11:28
you know we also i don't know patsy i
11:30
don't know if i'm getting ahead of
11:31
myself here but i know that
11:32
we've also said that that um our words
11:36
have power and depending on what we
11:38
speak
11:38
a spiritual entity will jump on to it to
11:40
make sure that it comes about
11:42
so so um patsy before i move on to the
11:45
next do you have any comments about what
11:47
i just said
11:47
about your boy
11:50
i just love that i love this
11:54
this um subject so much because it can
11:56
so
11:57
change your life so
12:00
our words have the power to be
12:01
encouraging or to be wholesome or
12:04
unwholesome right
12:05
we have the power to be positive or
12:07
negative have you ever been with a
12:08
negative
12:09
nelly right oh no matter what you say
12:12
they can turn it into something negative
12:14
and you're like like
12:15
i just can't take this it's like being
12:16
under way around this person
12:18
we have the choice to be a blessing a
12:20
curse in our situations
12:22
and uh for ourselves for our families
12:24
for our cities for our
12:26
congregations right we have that choice
12:29
see paul wrote don't let any unwholesome
12:31
talk come out of your mouth but
12:32
only what is helpful for the building of
12:35
others up according to their needs that
12:36
may be benefit to those who listen
12:38
that's in ephesians 4 29
12:40
see the greek word for unwholesome is
12:42
translated
12:43
rotten or foul you know we think of
12:47
foul as swear words but you know
12:49
sometimes the things that we say to
12:51
people are just as foul
12:53
paul is urging us to be a blessing to
12:56
those that we come into contact with on
12:58
a daily basis basis
13:00
you know and we should follow jesus
13:01
example whose words were always filled
13:03
with grace and love and strength right
13:05
he said to the woman you know neither do
13:08
i commend you
13:09
condemn you go and say no more right i
13:11
don't remember him the only place we see
13:13
in scripture in which
13:14
he was uh pretty um
13:18
ticked i guess you could say is when he
13:19
turned over the temple the the tables in
13:21
the temple you know
13:22
it wasn't the people it was what they
13:23
were doing he's it's about what we do
13:26
you know that he gets upset with not
13:28
with who we are because he loves people
13:30
yeah i think that too he he also called
13:33
the
13:34
scribes and pharisees vipers but
13:38
that's true but they probably were
13:41
acting that way
13:42
and so he had a very valid reason to try
13:45
to because he was
13:46
hurting his people they yeah you know in
13:49
that time period they were deceiving the
13:50
people and that's
13:51
right and jesus was so upset with them
13:54
from doing that
13:55
and i you know this is off subject a
13:57
little bit but i i want to i want to
13:59
say this too i think you know i relate
14:02
that today is
14:03
those who are building their own kingdom
14:06
right not building
14:07
his kingdom and that's what i see as a
14:09
pharisee how i relate it to today
14:11
they're more worried about their own
14:13
kingdom than they are the kingdom
14:14
they and
14:18
and so a lot of this is related to the
14:21
power of our words as an overflow of
14:22
what's in our hearts already
14:24
yeah because um in matthew 12
14:27
34 and 35 it says for out of the
14:30
abundance of the heart
14:31
the mouth speaks the good person out of
14:34
his treasure brings forth good and the
14:36
evil person out of his treasure brings
14:38
forth evil
14:39
so in other words what you put into your
14:41
heart
14:42
is it good is it wholesome is it
14:45
encouraging is it you know truth from
14:48
the word of god
14:49
or are we focused and concentrated on
14:52
all that ugly stuff and because what
14:56
will happen is that will pour forth you
14:57
can hold it back for so long
14:59
but eventually it will pour forth like a
15:02
pressure cooker and spill over
15:04
somebody and have a negative impact on
15:07
them we need to guard and examine our
15:09
hearts daily
15:11
you know try to keep your hearts as pure
15:12
as possible look at that repent like we
15:15
said it's easy just repent say you're
15:17
sorry
15:17
say lord forgive me you know this is a
15:19
bad attitude i have right now
15:21
and i need to ask your forgiveness
15:23
please change my heart wash my heart
15:25
cleanse my heart that's what david did
15:28
and we know all the sin david committed
15:31
and he still was considered a friend of
15:33
god
15:34
and and so i just think wow you know
15:36
even
15:37
all the mistakes he made he still tried
15:40
to cry out to god and ask for that
15:42
cleansing and that forgiveness
15:44
he didn't walk in that shame and
15:46
continue to walk in that shame
15:48
he knew he had to wash and get his heart
15:51
clean before god
15:53
when our hearts have been changed by the
15:55
power of god
15:57
that change is reflected in our words
15:59
yeah so when we allow god to come in and
16:01
change and cleanse our heart
16:02
that's reflected in what we're saying to
16:04
others or about ourself even
16:07
and as believers our mouths should bring
16:09
glory and honor to god
16:11
and cursing someone and putting people
16:13
down
16:14
and and being negative and saying
16:17
negative things about them
16:19
don't bring that glory and honor to god
16:21
because like cynthia said
16:23
you know we're to encourage god wants us
16:26
to be that blessing god wants us to be
16:29
that encouragement to others and we can
16:32
do that through our words
16:34
they should bring life to others not
16:36
death like we said before our words
16:37
should be full of blessing
16:39
not cursing yeah or what are we aligning
16:41
with right that's right
16:42
when we speak words of life we're
16:44
aligning with life when we speak words
16:46
of death where we align
16:48
truly right and you can know you can
16:50
tell the difference i know immediately
16:51
when that comes out of my mouth it's
16:53
like oh my gosh i shouldn't have said
16:54
that
16:55
that is wrong and you can repent i mean
16:56
you can repent they can't go back
16:58
in but you can repent and ask god to
17:00
forgive you and to
17:01
even um pray for that person
17:05
you know pray blessing over them if it's
17:07
about somebody and pray
17:09
pray that nothing will happen as a
17:12
result of your
17:14
your words that you just spoke and say
17:16
lord break that break anything that
17:18
could have been spoken over them that
17:20
would have a negative impact over them i
17:21
ask you to forgive me for that
17:23
um so our heart when our words are full
17:26
of blessing
17:28
our hearts are full of blessing it all
17:30
ties together
17:32
so that works together heart and and
17:35
words can work together so if we fill
17:37
our hearts with the love of jesus
17:40
only truth and purity will come out of
17:42
our mouths
17:43
wholesome things will come out of our
17:44
mouths right love life will come out of
17:46
our mouth
17:47
when our hearts are so full of jesus so
17:49
full of his love
17:51
so full of him then that's what's going
17:54
to come out of our hearts
17:56
anything you'd like to add cynthia no
17:58
i'm just thinking you know
17:59
so many people they they have no gifts
18:01
we have a mouth
18:02
you know that is a huge gift in the
18:04
kingdom whether you use it to speak over
18:06
people
18:07
um in your in your day-to-day existence
18:09
whether you use it in prayer which is
18:11
huge that we underrate so much
18:14
um what a gift and a tool that everybody
18:17
has but
18:18
how few truly use it absolutely
18:22
now our power of our words should really
18:25
be used by god to manifest the power of
18:28
our faith
18:29
in first peter 3 15 it tells us this our
18:32
words should demonstrate the power of
18:35
god
18:36
and the indwelling of his holy spirit in
18:38
our lives we should just
18:40
um be that light in those dark places we
18:43
should emanate that and our words should
18:45
follow that
18:46
our words should emanate that power of
18:48
god in our life
18:50
whether we're praying for someone
18:51
whether we're um talking to them about
18:54
the lord and sharing our faith
18:56
they should draw others to jesus they
18:58
should draw others to him not try to
19:00
you know because if people listen and
19:02
hear what your words are
19:04
and they will pay attention to what
19:05
you're saying and if you're always
19:06
negative about something and always
19:08
complaining about something and always
19:10
being
19:10
you know they're going to hear that and
19:12
go why do i want to be a christian
19:14
why would i want to follow christ
19:15
because that doesn't sound like it's
19:16
very much fun
19:17
and guys i'm going to turn out like that
19:19
person you know
19:21
dangerously i mean i know no thank you
19:23
i'm not gonna do that
19:24
so so when um we're sharing
19:28
the love of christ with others and to
19:30
share about
19:31
his sacrifice for them we need to make
19:34
sure our words are reflecting
19:36
that that's what's in our heart our
19:38
faith is in our heart the faith in our
19:39
heart
19:40
is being poured out that love is being
19:42
poured out
19:43
that relationship with jesus is being
19:46
poured out
19:47
so that that can draw them to the lord
19:50
right and you know patsy um to jump on
19:53
that
19:53
you know when you said that um our words
19:55
should demonstrate the power of god
19:57
our word should match what we do right
19:59
absolutely that's where our
20:00
our outward and our inward and our
20:02
actions all come together and fit
20:04
together that's what's so cool about god
20:06
is that everything really connects if
20:08
you get a true understanding if you get
20:10
the basics down
20:11
you know you know who god is you know
20:13
who you are you realize that there's a
20:15
spirit realm
20:16
um what your part is in the on this
20:19
earth why you're
20:20
here what is the assignment against you
20:21
what is your assignment for you
20:23
these are you know all the things that
20:24
we talk about but the power that you
20:27
have as an individual
20:29
to be who god created you to be and to
20:31
do what he created you to do
20:33
right and so you know today we're
20:35
talking about the power of our words and
20:36
they can be used by the enemy to curse
20:39
others and ourselves we do it all the
20:40
time
20:41
james 3 9 10 says with it our tongue we
20:44
bless
20:45
our lord and father and we with it we
20:48
curse people who are made in the
20:49
likeness of god
20:50
if we truly looked at others and it says
20:52
then it comes on continues on with the
20:54
same mouth come blessing and curses
20:56
think about it people it does it happens
20:58
all the time if we really considered we
21:00
looked at
21:00
every person and said that is god's
21:03
child whether they're manifesting it or
21:05
whether they're living in it whether
21:06
they're choosing his way
21:08
right there's value and who that person
21:10
is and they have a contribution
21:12
to this world and if we thought of it
21:15
that way
21:16
to speak into what god to see the god
21:19
part and speak into that
21:21
rather than coming again oh they're just
21:23
evil we need to pray against them no
21:24
it's not people it's the spirits behind
21:27
people
21:27
so i'm getting off a little bit here you
21:29
can see i get really wound up about this
21:30
stuff but
21:31
you know from the same mouth comes
21:34
blessing and curses
21:35
you know it happens to us over and over
21:37
again when we get irritated when things
21:38
don't go the way we want and the person
21:40
pulls out in front of us interact back i
21:42
mean
21:42
from every little thing to big things
21:44
right
21:45
we just need to speak life we don't
21:47
think about
21:48
the ongoing like your world war ii story
21:51
patsy
21:52
that ongoing of it's out there rotating
21:55
and the enemy says oh i can use that i'm
21:58
going to grab that and use that in this
22:00
situation because words have power they
22:02
create
22:03
the devil can't create he's the created
22:05
being
22:06
he can only use what is and twist so
22:08
he'll grab it and use it because the
22:10
only power he has here
22:12
since the cross right since jesus is the
22:15
victor
22:15
is what we allow him and we allow him to
22:19
traffic in our lives and our
22:21
people around us lives in the world
22:23
today in our political systems our
22:25
educational systems and every kind of
22:27
system by the words that we speak
22:30
and so i don't want to be accused uh it
22:32
really
22:33
accused by the enemy or well i will be
22:35
because he hates me
22:36
radiates all of us we we love jesus but
22:39
i don't want to be one who stands before
22:41
god as patsy also said earlier
22:43
and when i have to give an account for
22:45
those words you know i sent you there to
22:47
build my kingdom
22:48
and how did you build it what did you do
22:51
and what about this
22:52
and why didn't you you know sometimes
22:54
we're guilty about what we don't do is
22:55
what we do
22:57
so um that scripture goes on says my
23:00
brothers
23:00
for us the ladies those you know my
23:03
sisters
23:04
these things ought not to be so this can
23:08
have a tremendous negative impact
23:10
impact on the lives uh on people's lives
23:13
on our own lives and you know
23:15
this is you know in one of the pillars
23:18
of the
23:18
the um topics that we do when we
23:22
take someone through ministry is we have
23:24
a few
23:25
few uh different pillars that hold up
23:28
the ministry that we do and words is one
23:31
of those things and how they manifest in
23:33
people's lives people who are broken
23:34
have had words spoken over them
23:37
their identity is wrapped up in the
23:39
words that have been
23:40
spoken to them and over them and right
23:42
into their their you know from children
23:44
right into their little lives from
23:46
babies
23:46
right into their little spirits and had
23:48
us formed who they are which to the
23:50
enemy says
23:51
yes i got them away from what who god
23:53
created them to be
23:54
by hurting them with this word and by
23:56
forming them into this thing that
23:58
they're really not
24:00
and so these power of these words is a
24:02
part a big part of
24:04
you coming into agreement with what god
24:06
who god is
24:07
what he says what his character is what
24:09
he says about you
24:10
finding out who you truly are not what
24:12
things that people have said over you
24:14
right
24:14
and so um we deal with um
24:18
those words we deal with the identity um
24:20
you need to deal with
24:21
your identity you need to take a look at
24:23
that what are these words that you're
24:24
hearing
24:24
that you're speaking that have been
24:26
spoken over you that you've spoken over
24:27
others
24:28
do you have children that you've formed
24:29
by your words you know
24:31
we start thinking about this but you
24:33
know what god's redemptive and he can
24:34
make things he can make up right
24:36
so we we want to
24:40
give you this um teaching this concept
24:43
about the power of words but you know
24:45
we've talked about blessing and um when
24:47
we we start speaking over people or we
24:49
start speaking those negative words
24:51
against ourselves or against others we
24:53
call those word curses
24:55
you say oh i i don't believe in curses
24:57
because you know jesus died on the tree
24:59
and he took all my curse
25:00
hmm that's interesting you know we use
25:03
this all the time that
25:04
you know this the the jews said um when
25:06
they wanted
25:07
the the um pharisees and on the people
25:11
that were following after the crowds who
25:12
really didn't recognize jesus as the
25:14
messiah
25:15
you know they said and we want you to
25:17
crucify him this is the cynthia virgin
25:19
okay
25:19
so we want you to crucify him and you
25:22
know if you're
25:23
reluctant let his blood be upon us
25:26
and um think about all the travesties
25:30
that the
25:30
jewish people as a nation as a country
25:33
as a
25:34
ethnic group have had to um
25:38
um shoulder endure thank you patsy for
25:42
for ages because of what the enemy has
25:45
used those words um to you know funnel
25:49
them
25:49
and and be oprah being oppressed people
25:52
you know i think about
25:53
um obviously i'm not um um a black
25:56
brother or sister
25:57
um but you know i think about all those
26:00
years in which
26:01
um they were enslaved and all the
26:03
horrible things that were said over them
26:05
you know and and that community um
26:08
has has the power of those words over
26:11
there maybe they don't know how
26:12
to break free from it maybe i don't
26:14
agree with how they're attempting to
26:16
break free but i can see how it is so
26:18
you know i think about the people that
26:20
are in muslim religion
26:22
and false religions they have these
26:24
words that are spoken over them and
26:26
these beliefs that they've taken into
26:27
themselves because of things that they
26:29
have learned and it has cursed them and
26:30
it holds them in bondage
26:32
so um i can go off on a million
26:35
different things from here
26:37
but what we want to say to you today is
26:39
that
26:40
for you to you know start asking the
26:43
lord about
26:44
your words start asking the lord about
26:46
the words that have been spoken over you
26:48
start questioning who you think you are
26:51
right
26:52
um you know and i do mean that who do
26:54
you think you are
26:55
um because who you think you are and who
26:58
you really are
26:59
are probably two different things unless
27:01
you have a true understanding
27:03
of your identity in who god says you are
27:05
i'm here to tell you you have value
27:07
i'm here to tell you your words have
27:09
power i'm here to tell you that you have
27:10
a destiny on your life
27:12
i'm here to tell you that god has great
27:14
things for you
27:16
and um that you too can be creative and
27:19
you could create
27:20
in the spirit realm by the things that
27:22
you speak because the more we get like
27:24
god
27:25
i personally be this is a cynthia
27:27
version again i personally believe the
27:29
more we get like him the more power we
27:30
have
27:31
and i've seen that to be evident the
27:32
closer i get to him the more power i
27:34
have right
27:35
the more closer i get to him the more
27:37
revelation i get right
27:38
the closer i get to him the more i see
27:40
things occur just like a lightning
27:42
strike right you speak it and it happens
27:44
because that's how he truly that's how
27:46
he created us to live
27:49
to live in that way so those of you you
27:51
know we don't have time
27:52
today it's this that this was an
27:55
overview of the power of words that we
27:57
wanted you to receive
27:58
you know we have other teachings about
28:00
curses
28:02
and we want you to you know stay tuned
28:04
to us um
28:05
on you know whatever session we do
28:08
these are as i said words is one of the
28:11
pillars of
28:12
um avenues that we minister in and so
28:15
if we can impart you maybe open the
28:18
cracks
28:19
you can start saying like i did with our
28:21
mentor
28:22
that doesn't make sense to me but as
28:24
i've saturated myself in it
28:26
it makes sense to me now or or maybe you
28:29
know this to be true
28:30
but maybe you've turned away from it a
28:31
bit or maybe god's trying to draw you
28:33
in into a place of prayer he's trying to
28:35
draw you in into a place of ministry or
28:37
he's trying to draw you in to become
28:39
whole and to realize who you are in your
28:42
own power
28:43
um any of those scenarios or anything
28:45
else that holy spirit may be speaking to
28:47
you
28:48
right now you know we just bless you
28:50
today right with our word
28:51
we speak that life over you we speak
28:53
into you
28:54
that um that god has something powerful
28:57
for you
28:58
and that he has love and peace and
29:00
patience and kindness and long-suffering
29:01
right all of those fruits right are
29:03
yours
29:04
to live in joy right and peace and
29:07
um i say peace because that was a big
29:08
one for me i needed peace
29:10
and not only that but you can be one to
29:14
um to add to people's lives
29:18
in a positive way and that they can look
29:20
back and see where you built
29:22
you didn't tear down that's right and uh
29:25
i just think that's powerful
29:26
patsy's have anything to add no not
29:29
really other than
29:29
i know in my heart i've always just
29:33
wanted to be a blessing
29:34
yeah i wanted to be a blessing and when
29:36
you focus on that
29:38
then god will show you ways to be a
29:40
blessing
29:41
whether it's an encouraging word whether
29:43
it's a smile
29:44
whether it's something that you come
29:46
across somebody and they just need
29:48
a listening ear yeah whenever you want
29:50
to be a blessing
29:52
god will help you be that blessing and
29:55
and a lot of times he uses our words
29:58
that's how he uses
30:00
us to encourage others to bring life to
30:02
others
30:03
and so be open to however he wants to
30:05
use you
30:06
as a blessing for his kingdom right
30:09
and as you know our prayer is always
30:12
that you obtain
30:13
healing and freedom so that you can be
30:16
all that he created you to be
30:18
um he wants he has so much more for you
30:22
and so through healing and through
30:24
freedom
30:25
you can receive this because then when
30:27
you receive your
30:28
healing and you can do all the or you
30:31
can be all that he created you
30:32
to be then you can do all that he
30:36
