Our verse for today comes from John 12:50, ” Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak. “
Spoiler alert: Not everything you read on the internet can be trusted. My most recent encounter with this truth came from an article about magic and the power of words. As it claimed that the spoken word can produce powerful vibrational patterns that direct energy and produce magic effects, it said that words can be more powerful than swords. To quote, ” When you move the letter ‘s’ in ‘words’ to the front, you get ‘sword.’ This is not an accident. ” Now, we know that God’s Word is sharper than any two-edged sword, but I doubt the author was referencing our Lord’s scripture in his silly letter realignment. The article went on to say how nearly all English words are designed in a way that produces magic effect, so that the Dark Magicians of these words can trick you into playing their con game. An example was the word ” contract. ” When divided, the word becomes ” con, ” which is a swindle or trick, and ” tract, ” which is a brief treatise for distribution. Thus, a contract is a deceptive agreement, which justifies his claim that most contracts are fraudulent anyway because of a lack of full disclosure. And one final quote, ” When you speak words, you are casting your thoughts and vibrations into Earth’s magnetic field or magic field, which is the energy field that creates the reality of Earth. “
I’m afraid our author, a Mr. Pao Ling, is not quite in sync with the thoughts of the One who actually did use words to create the universe. But it was God, and not the vibrations of His words, that had, and has, the power and authority. That is why Jesus spoke only and always what His Father told Him to speak. And that is why His written Word is our ultimate authority, and should be the basis of all we say and do. And that is why when we step out of line from it, we must quickly confess and return to the One who did not make a contract with us, but by the shed blood of Jesus confirmed a binding covenant with His children. As Peter said to Jesus, ” You have the words of eternal life. “
As we seek Him today, let your words reflect the words of our Savior, our Creator, and our Father.
