SPEAK!!



If there is one thing, which can completely alter an outcome, or change the direction of any situation, then it is the tongue. It is widespread knowledge, throughout planet earth, that a person’s tongue, can make a huge difference in almost any situation. A tongue can change minds, and when the minds change, then actions and attitudes change, and the results can alter destinies, and shape lives for centuries to come.


A simple yes, or a simple no, can make a huge difference, but more than that, the power of speech, should not be underestimated at any time. Today I want to speak about the force and power of speech. You may be aware of it, or not, but even God’s actions are influenced by what you do or don’t say, yes, the tongue is that powerful. Based on a person’s words, God will either lengthen or shorten a person’s life. Yes, your words have a direct impact on how long you will, or won’t, live. If you offend God, through your words, your years will decrease, God will take some years, even decades, away, and if your words are pleasing to God, years can be added to your life. So your lifespan, or the number of years you will live, are impacted by more than just your actions, your words play a huge part.


I want to take you a little further, into the dimension of speech, more specific, I will take you into a mystery (it is really an open secret). The length and quality of your life, are not determined by your speech alone, no, the words of others, can also have a direct impact on your life. Whether those words are good or bad, what others say about you, can either shorten or increase your years. You see friend, there is another world where speech is used, either for, or against you. Some people call it the spiritual world or the unseen world, or another dimension. It is the world which the earth-world exists in.


Earth is a world, existing within an even larger world. Think of it this way, you live in a house, and within that house there are many rooms. Now see each room within that house as another complete, but smaller house; see each room as a small house within an even larger house. Similarly, there is a large world, and within that world there are many other smaller worlds, earth is one of those smaller worlds. What does that mean? It means, that just as there are living beings (humans) which exist in your smaller earth-world, there are Beings existing or living, or occupying, the larger world, which contains your world. In the larger world there are Beings, and they know of your existence, and they are either for or against you, for whatever reasons.

Now from time to time they will speak about you in the larger world, and they will speak either for, or against, you. Those words about you, will be wrapped in a dream, or some other form of message container, and that will be delivered to your world, where you live. If you are sensitive to the larger world you will recognize the message, and you will have to speak either for, or against, whatever was said about you, or your loved ones. If someone in the larger world is speaking against you, then your message informing you, will be delivered to you, and you will have an opportunity to speak against your accuser, or whoever is condemning you, or plotting evil against you. If you speak against whatever was said, or spoken about you, then your words will travel from the world you live in, earth, to the larger world, and defend your cause.


Think about the story of Job. A hater of Job spoke against him and his family, and there was no defense, and what happened? (Read the story- the Book of Job) What am I saying to you? Pay attention to every word carried to your ears, through songs, dreams, people, books or magazines, even movies, listen, and speak against whatever sounds like a threat, or like a curse, or condemnation of you, or your loved ones: you will live longer.

“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you will condemn.” (Isaiah 54:17)

The issue with most people on earth is, since they are not very familiar with God's ways and laws, they just perish, because of a lack of knowledge. Friend, you are living in God's domain or kingdom, and if you are wise you will make a very real, tangible effort, to familiarize yourself with God's laws and decrees, governing His domain, you will live longer.
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways," declares the LORD.
"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV)

Somewhere it is written: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)

"Israel's watchmen are blind, they all lack knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark; they lie around and dream, they love to sleep. They are dogs with mighty appetites; they never have enough. They are shepherds who lack understanding; they all turn to their own way, each seeks his own gain." (Isaiah 56:10-11)

And this is the Word for both shepherds and sheep alike: 
"Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come." (Ecclesiastes 12:1)

"God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seeks God." (Psalm 53:2)

It is to your benefit to know your Creator, to know His ways and decrees.
If you know what is happening, then you will be able to defend yourself, but if you are not even aware of the things impacting your own life, and the world you live in, then you will be destroyed. Dreams are channels of communication and there are many others, but stay alert, listen and respond. Speak.


This is My righteous decree over those among you, however few or many, who keep God's righteous laws and decrees, and who faithfully contribute your tithes to covenantmessenger101@gmail.com through https://www.paypal.com each month:

"All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God:
You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock- the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land He is giving you.
The LORD will establish you as His holy people, as He promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in His ways.
Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you.
The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity- in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground- in the land He swore to your forefathers to give you.
The LORD will open the heavens, the  storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom." (Deuteronomy 28:2-13)

Prayer Confession:

Dear God, thank you for your wisdom and knowledge. Keep me alert and sober, open my ears and eyes, so I can see and hear the things, which You want me to hear and see. Increase the years of my life and those I love (name them). Shield us from the attacks of those which rise against us, and give us the wisdom to speak against their evil. Let no enemy bring a charge against us, or accuse us for no reason. Let them stumble, let them fall, and let them be taken in their own snares. Let good come to us and let the angels of God shield us from all harm. Thank you, and Amen.

LIVE WISELY!!



How many of you, reading these, consider yourselves as wise? Probably ninety-nine-per cent of you do, because very few people, consider themselves as unwise. Well, let’s test your wisdom, because almost all people on earth consider themselves wise, even the fools. And no, this is not an insult aimed at you, I consider you as wise, since you clicked on this post to come and read it, so I don’t think you are a fool, I think you are rather intelligent, and wisdom is rooted in intelligence.


I will still test your wisdom though, to show you something valuable, and rather important. Are you a parent, or do you intend to become a parent one day? Do you consider yourself a person with great parenting skills? If you are a parent, or intend to become a parent at some point in the future, then you need to have great parenting skills, and that is, if you desire to be a good parent. Being a father, or a mother of a child, does not automatically transform you into a great or good parent, no, wisdom does that. Wisdom teaches a person, how to raise a child properly. You don’t even need to have a child of your own, to have great parenting skills; all you need to have, is wisdom.


So, let’s see how great your parenting skills are today, right now. Say you have a child in today’s world, and you want your child, to be a healthy, and well-educated, wise child. A child which will grow up, knowing right from wrong; a child, which will grow into a good, respectable, decent and well-mannered human being, who knows how to interact with others, in a respectful manner. What will you teach your child? Will you teach your child responsibility, and alertness, from an early age, or will you let your child spend hours on the internet, interacting with strangers, which neither you, or your child, knows face-to face, and just hope for the best?


Will you, let your child, experience the rich world of reading a book, and the power of imagination, and the creativity that goes along with that, or, will you, let your child, sit for hours on end, in front of a television set, watching movies, talk shows, and whatever else there are on television? Will you take your kid outside, or to the park, to kick a ball, ride a bike, and do some physical activity, or, will you, let your child, go to the nearest shopping mall or shopping center, to browse the shops, catch a movie, or spend their time playing computer games, all day long? Will you, give your child, some chores to do around the house, like mowing the grass, washing the dishes, sweeping the yard, or picking up leaves, washing the dog or your car, or, will you, just let your child go, and hang out with friends, somewhere, where they don’t bother you, no matter where, as long as they are not disturbing you?


You see, friend, your child is like a sponge, whatever you soak your child in, your child will absorb. If they live in a safe environment, where they are taught to be responsible, alert, and respectful, they will absorb that, and will become responsible, alert, and respectful. If you choose, to teach your child, to take responsibility for things, in and around the house, instead of being soaked in whatever is on the TV screen, they will learn the type of behaviour, which you know, will benefit them in the future.


A lot of people think, that a child, who is kept occupied with a television set in their room, or with a computer game, or with chatting with friends, all day on the internet, is keeping the child out of trouble, but little do they know, that their child is being soaked, in whatever they are continually exposed to, and that child will not only begin to absorb that, but they will start to display that behaviour. A lot of children has no respect for their own parents, and that not, because their parents taught them to be disrespectful, but because their parents exposed them to such influences. A lot of children grow into strangers, whom their parents claim to not know, and it happens, because parents, do not parent their children, they delegate that responsibility to the internet, the television set, movies and friends. Parents are disillusioned and shocked, by the behaviour of their kids, when they are confronted with the consequences of their children’s actions, because they never really paid attention. They were never really present in the lives of their children, the internet was, and the television set, the movies, and the friends they were chatting with. You see, friend, your children are your responsibility, and not that of the internet, their friends, the movies, the shopping center, the computer games, or the television set, they are your responsibility. If you love your child raise your child yourself, you are responsible for that child, it is your child.


“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6 NIV)

This is aimed at a parent of a child, train your child, show them the way, not just through mere words, but by walking the way with them.

“The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.” (Proverbs 16:17)

“He who walks with the wise grows wise.” (Proverbs 13:20)

“He who spares the rod (of discipline) hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.” (Proverbs 13:24)

“Do not withhold discipline from a child.” (Proverbs 23:13)


“If your heart is wise then my heart will be glad.” (Proverbs 23:15)

You see friend, each time I publish a post, I post it with the utmost sincerity. It is my sincere will and desire, for you to do well in life, and excel in all your righteous endeavors and pursuits. At the very same time, I am a father and a guide to you, and I want you to see me as such. I do understand, that out of the hundreds and thousands of people reading these posts, that not all of you are in a position to contribute financially, but as many of you, who are able to, please do so. God's Richest blessings to you in you displaying your obedience and respect. (If any of you are offended at me for expecting you, as children of faith, to honour me as the word of God instructs you to, then maybe this blog is not for you. You are free to abstain from partaking in the wisdom and light, which God shines through me, and go seek another).

“He who spares the rod (of discipline) hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.” (Proverbs 13:24)

HEAVEN ON EARTH!!



What is heaven? What does the word "heaven" mean to you? For a lot of people, heaven is the place where God lives, or where good people go when they die. The thought of heaven, for a lot of people, is “an unpleasant pleasant thought". It is a pleasant thought, because heaven, for a lot of people, is associated with good, peace, joy and happiness, an eternal place of great wonder. It is an unpleasant thought, for the simple reason, that when people think or talk about heaven, right in the back of their minds, they believe, that the only way for them to get to heaven, is to die, and nobody wants to die.


What is heaven? A lot of people have their own versions, of what they believe heaven is, or could or should be, and a lot of their ideas, are rooted in their own desires, and what they would want heaven to be. So, from the perspective of most people, apart from the ideas that heaven is where God lives, heaven is representative of those things they most desire. For a lot of people, heaven is the place, where they will, one day, after they die, live in peace with their loved ones who passed away, and where they will experience no more pain, tears or any kind of suffering. A lot of people see heaven, as their one true home, where they will go and live forever, with God. The only thing, that keeps people from heaven, as a lot of people believe, is life. Because, most people believe, that for one to go to heaven, you will first need to die. And death should not come by your own hand, but according to the will of God, and in God’s own time. I encountered people, who, as a result of all the pain and suffering they witness, and experience on earth, would much rather die, and go to heaven. (Careful what you wish for, the ears of God hears every utterance proceeding out of your mouth) After all, heaven is the place, where there is no more pain, and no more suffering, no more tears, and no more troubles. Since a lot of people see heaven, as a place of great peace and tranquility, the thought, and idea of going to heaven, is attractive, and much rather preferred, than all the suffering, pain and misery, people are exposed to on earth.


It is of course true, that God is aware, of all these thoughts, and conflicts in mankind. A lot of people want to go to heaven, as soon as possible, and that, because they are just tired of the life they are experiencing on earth. They are tired of the pain, some of them are experiencing, they are tired of the troubles and conflicts, which they always have to deal with, they are tired of the uncertainties of life on earth, the roller-coaster rides they are forced to take, and they are tired of the lack of peace. A lot of people are just tired of the constant effort, to try and hold things together; they feel tired of keeping things from falling apart, even themselves. To them, heaven is just a better place, a place of no effort, no struggles, and no more needless strains. And, in spite of all these realities humans are faced with, good humans, God is fine with keeping them on earth. Why?

Some people feel, that if earth is such a great place to live on, according to GOD, then GOD should come and live on earth, and they’ll go to heaven. Well, God wants me to remind you, that GOD saw this plight of man, and decided to refresh your memory, to what God chose to do from the beginning. God created mankind and put them on earth, male and female, Adam and Eve. God joined them on earth, and walked among them. -Genesis 3:8 Then there was the fall of man of course, and things changed, curses came, and man’s days became hard and difficult, death was introduced, and tears and suffering, became part of man’s life on earth. God gave mankind everything most people desire to have, right from the beginning. God gave peace, a home, eternal life, no pain, no trouble, no suffering, just peace and tranquility, and God walked with man, right here on earth. The days of heaven, were right here on earth, and God wants you to know, that those days are here again. (Yes I know, your faith needs to increase, because without faith... you know the story... "the just shall live by faith" -Habbakuk 2:4)


There is one thing, which made all the difference, one thing which changed everything. If you think about the condition of the earth, before God placed man on earth, it was terrible! And one thing changed it all, and that one thing is: “THE BLESSING OF GOD.” That is the one thing, which made the difference then, and brought all the change, for the earth, and for man. After man despised God’s counsel, and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (forbidden fruits: Adam and Eve were permitted by God to eat of all the fruits in the Garden of Eden, except for the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but driven by desire and greed, they chose to take and eat the fruits, which God commanded them to not eat of. -Genesis 2-3), what happened? The curse came, and the Blessing left. (Yes, blessings can leave, ask Adam and Eve, but primarily as a result of disobedience, rejecting God's Words and Commands.) THE BLESSING OF GOD brought abundance, but the curse took all that abundance away, and brought lack and hardship instead. Friend, THE BLESSING OF GOD has made the difference then, and the BLESSING OF GOD, is what will make the difference now. The curse brought sickness, pain, misery, trouble, hardship and death. But the BLESSING OF GOD can reverse the curse.

In the Book of Genesis, it is written, that after God made everything: “GOD BLESSED THEM.” (Genesis 1) THE BLESSING OF GOD, brought the light, the life and what was good. That same BLESSING OF GOD is available to you, and you can experience the days of heaven on earth, as a result of THE BLESSING OF GOD. THE BLESSING OF GOD chases the curse away: death, sickness, pain, misery, hardship and trouble. Before THE BLESSING OF GOD came, the earth was dark and full of chaos, THE BLESSING OF GOD changed all of that. If you want the curse of sickness, pain, misery and trouble, chaos, hardship and death, to be chased away, then what you need, is THE BLESSING OF GOD. If you want the chaos in your life, to be chased away, and for the days of heaven on earth, to be your reality, then you need THE BLESSING OF GOD.

“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. God blessed them.” (Genesis 1:27-28 NIV)

THE BLESSING OF GOD HAS MADE THE DIFFERENCE!!

“The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;

Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive THE BLESSING FROM THE LORD.” (Psalm 24)

THE BLESSING OF GOD, has made the difference between life and death, for Adam and Eve, THE BLESSING OF GOD added years to their lives, centuries. Yes, I know, it is hard or difficult to believe, if you lack faith and wisdom, because how is it even possible or conceivable, that humans can live for hundreds or thousands of years!!

"Adam lived 930 years, and then he died." -Genesis 5:5 

The same thing can happen to you. 

"The just shall live by his faith." -Habbakuk 2:4

There is so much revelation and insight concealed in that verse, it is the foundation of a long life for the upright. There is much, that mankind still need to understand, about the true significance and impact, of the Blessing of God -it is key to a lot of things. Adam and Eve, experienced the days of heaven, on earth, and their lives were prolonged, as a result of “THE BLESSING OF GOD.”


“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusts in You.” (Psalm 84:11-12)

GOD: A HEALER OF ALL



God, A HEALER OF ALL, is of course, open to any interpretation of what "God: A Healer Of All," means to individuals. (And that, because different people have different ideas, and perspectives, of God as a Healer) Some people, are not persuaded that God is a Healer of All, because they have their own ideas, around when and who, God will heal. My take, is another view or perspective, on God: A Healer Of All.


We first of all, have to understand, Who God is. God is The Creator of All things on earth: man, woman, child, animals, plants and everything else. From that basic understanding, one can then say, since God created all of these, it is fair to believe, that since God is The Creator of these things, that God can fix or mend these things, if they were to break or needed repairs. To make it easy to understand: if you purchase a microwave, or any electrical appliance, from any store, and there’s something wrong with it, you will then take it back to the store where you purchased it, since there is a manufacturer’s warranty on each product. What that means, is that your store will send the appliance back to the manufacturer to fix, because the manufacturer or creator of the microwave, signed a binding agreement, to fix or replace the appliance, if it breaks during normal prescribed use, and that within a set window of time, a year, or two or more years. That is an easy way to understand God’s responsibility and willingness, to heal or repair His creation.


Just like there is a manufacturer’s warranty on an electrical appliance, there is A Creator’s warranty on you. God created you, and God has an agreement in place, to heal or restore you, His creation, back to health, if you are in need of repairs. That agreement is called: The Word of God. You need to understand how this agreement works, because I found a lot of people, who thinks, that GOD: A Healer Of All, means, that God will heal all people all the time, whenever they are in need of healing or repairs. This agreement of God, is called The Word Of God, and that Word Of God, prescribes the conditions for healing, under which you fall, as the created. Just like your microwave, comes with certain terms and conditions attached to it, from the manufacturer, which states, when you are allowed to return it for repairs. First of all, you are required to follow the prescribed guidelines, when operating the microwave, strictly in accordance with the purpose, for which the microwave was made. If you deviate from the prescribed use of the microwave, as set out in the manufacture’s guide, you will forfeit that warranty, if the microwave breaks. God’s Word is just like that.


God’s Word directs you on how to operate your body, your brain and every part of your life, relationships included. For example: God’s Word says that you are permitted to have a wife or husband. (And no, men are not forbidden from marrying more than one wife at a time, but women are allowed only one husband. A man is not permitted to marry another man’s wife or his wife’s mother. Yet, he is permitted to marry another wife, if he is faithful to his first wife, but adultery is forbidden. And no, a man is not an adulterer, if he is married to more than one wife, no matter what the laws of your country says. God created mankind, and not your government.) Along with that permission, there are a set of guidelines. God says, that you are not to take another man’s wife, because that is adultery. If you do that, God will kill you. (If you violate God's conditions -laws and commands- you will be judged and condemned. Disease, car accidents or any way God sees fit, will be released to destroy you, and governments cannot protect you against the judgment of God) A woman is not permitted to leave her husband for no reason, and marry another (no matter what the laws of your country says, God is Greater, and More Powerful than your government). A woman is permitted to leave her husband, if he sleeps with another man’s wife, or another man (-sexual relations between men, ARE FORBIDDEN) or if he beats her. She is not allowed to leave her husband if he is poor, and not able to support her. If she does, she is not permitted to marry another man, because God will kill her and the man. If a woman stays with her own husband, and he sleeps with another man’s wife or a prostitute (PROSTITUTION IS FORBIDDEN), she is free to leave her adulterous husband, and free to marry another man. The same applies to a man, if your wife is unfaithful, and sleeps with another man or woman, she is an adulteress, and you will not stay with her. God will kill her and the man. You may ask, “What about forgiveness?” The answer is, that your forgiveness, will not stop the adulterous behaviour, of your unfaithful spouse. Stay clean, and do not allow yourself to be cursed along with your adulterous wife/husband. And the question: “What about the children?” if you have any. The same applies.


God: Healer Of All, means, that if you obey God and honour His guidelines, and directions, that God will heal you, and restore your health. Yet, if you defy God, and choose your own ways, over God’s guidelines and clear direction, then you will forfeit your warranty. God, is A Healer of relationships, and God is A Healer of bodies. If your spouse is unfaithful, God can heal your heart and give you a fresh relationship, with a new partner, if that is your heart's desire, but you have to obey God. It is toxic for you to stay with a spouse, which God had cursed.  

‘”I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Whom I trust.”’ (Psalm 91:2 NIV)

If you are an adulterer or adulteress, then stop your adulterous behaviour. Repent and turn away from your wrong ways, and embrace the light. Stop breaking God's commands and laws, and live. Live a healthy, safe and responsible life, free from sinning against your neighbour, you will live longer.

"Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits- Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion." (Psalm 103)

“These commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way of life, keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife. Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes, for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life. Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? So is he who sleeps with another man’s wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.” (Proverbs 6:23-29)


“A man who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys himself.” (Proverbs 6:32)
