CURSING

Exodus 21:7 - "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain."

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard a co-worker employ foul language to communicate and have bit my tongue. Well, I am biting it no more. You clicked on the icon, so you are going to get rebuked. You asked for it. God is fed up with your foul language! He is sick of your four-letter potty-talk. If your words were tangible, you would be a nasty, stinking sewer! Your language is full of talk about filthy things because your heart is filthy. Jesus plainly said that you can know a man’s heart by what comes out of his lips and that a good man CANNOT speak evil things. Jesus also said that you would be judged for every idle word you speak (see references below). You had best tremble in fear for all of your foul language, because GOD ISN’T DEAF!!! He can hear you. He is quite displeased when you take the holy name of “Jesus Christ” or “God” in your lips and use it like a four-letter curse word to express disgust or anger. How dare you use the holy name of God in such a foul way! He is furious with you when you curse your neighbor or when you call him or her foul things. You should fear Him! He holds you like one would hold a spider hanging by his own thread over a raging campfire. He has more disdain for you and your foul language than we do for the most conniving and venomous serpent. God despises you. ETERNAL HELL is light punishment for you.

HEARKEN UNTO THE WORD OF GOD:

Matthew 15:10-11, 18-20: Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man… Those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man…

Matthew 12:34-37: O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

James 3:5-17: Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father, and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can no fountain yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Exodus 20:7: Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Psalm 34:11-16: Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

Psalm 50:16-23: But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare My statutes, or that thou shouldest take My covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest My words behind thee. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth Me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

Proverbs 10:29-32: The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.

Ephesians 4:29-32: Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

YOUR ONLY HOPE!

Do not justify yourself, but confess your sin. Do not turn on the TV to numb your guilty conscience, but mediate on the gravity of your filthy talk in the ears of a holy God. Do not turn to a friend or a pastor to comfort you in your sins, but rather turn FROM your sins and receive comfort from none other than the Great Comforter, the Holy Ghost, whom God gives to those that obey Him. Get off the computer right now, and get on your face before God. You need His help. Repent of your wicked speech and bring your tongue into subjection to God’s will forevermore. If you forsake your wicked ways, God will have mercy upon you.
