MANY KINDS OF VOICES IN THE WORLD
NONE WITHOUT SIGNIFICANCE – PART I By Gale
There must come forth a
clarion (clear; distinct) TRUMPET voice calling people to hear the voice of God
unto resurrection life. There are many kinds of voices in the world and every
voice is forceful, powerful and mighty. God has knocked at the door of my heart
with voice saying, “Be careful to discern
life and death and choose life.”
There is a new sensitivity in
my spirit to rightly divide life and death. Recently, I have by the Spirit of
God, been made so much more aware of death activities. Simple conversations
with precious saints of God have ended in a challenge and choice as to whether
or not I am to agree with anything that was said. It is sad but at this season
we are being attacked with negativism unlike any time in the history of the
church. The good news is that negativism can only be discerned when the
positive victorious word of God is in manifestation.
I recently was given the
following scripture by a dear friend. I knew immediately that this scripture
was confirmation of voices from heaven presently stirring in my spirit.
There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices
(languages) in the world, and none of them is without signification (not mute
or dumb but forceful, powerful and mighty). Therefore if I know not the meaning
(power, force, ability or might) of the voice, I shall be unto him that
speaketh a barbarian (foreigner, alien), and he that speaketh shall be a
barbarian unto me. (1 Cor 14:10-11,
This passage of scripture
declares that every word in the world has a significant distinct power or force
behind it. The implication from this scripture is that if I do not know and
understand the power behind and within the word being spoken then I am
therefore, through ignorance, alienated (hostile or indifferent) to the source
of the word.
It is therefore easily
understood that if the source of the word is God, I want to know and understand
the power and might behind the word so that I won’t be wrongly alienated from
God. Instead of being indifferent to God as my voice, therefore subject to
barrenness, I will be in agreement with God’s word and can expect to edified,
exhorted and comforted.
On the other hand, if I know
and understand the word or voice as being from an idle and barren source, I may
righteously choose to be alienated (hostile and indifferent).
I have a dear church leader
friend who lives in England. Once while on a two week stay with Kay and me, I
noticed that when conversing with him, he for the most part never replied with,
“I agree with you.” His reply was
mostly, “I hear what you are saying.”
He explained that if he
verbalized an agreement with me, then immediately he became accountable for the
words spoken. Accountable means to be
subject to or responsible for. Is this scriptural?
"But I say to you that for every idle (barren,
useless) word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of
judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will
be condemned." (Matt 12:36-37, NKJ)
The Greek word for judgment
in this scripture is krisis (kree'-sis),
which the word judgment is more easily understood when simply translated
choice. Therefore paraphrased, the above verse says, “Every barren word (word
not begotten from God) which men have chosen to speak, immediately produces
accountability. In the same manner, when the word of God is spoken and agreed
with, we are accountable.
The day and moment in which
you choose (activate a judgment) to speak idle and barren words, you have
immediately chosen against yourself. Idle and barren words bring condemnation.
The Greek word for condemnation is katadikazo
(kat-ad-ik-ad'-zo) which means; to adjudge against; to decide or rule upon.
Again, simply said, if men choose to speak words which are not begotten of God
then barrenness prevails because by doing so, men have condemned or chosen
WE ARE JUSTIFIED AND FREE
The good news is that when
men choose to speak words commensurate with the Kingdom of God, men are
justified. Justification means freedom. The Apostle Paul wrote that Jesus was
raised from the dead for our justification. Justification means total liberty
from death. Justification means that God has through His Son Jesus chosen to
give you His life which is eternal in nature. Justification means that there
are no choices against you. We are justified by faith i.e. hearing and agreeing
with the word of God.

NONE WITHOUT SIGNIFICANCE – PART II
WORD AND SPIRIT ARE ONE AND AGREE
In order to fully understand
the working dynamics of speaking words in the kingdoms of darkness one has to
fully understand the same in the Kingdom
of God. For instance, if
I say the words Holy Spirit, I can also say clean
word(s) and mean the same thing. Explained: Holy means clean. The spirit
and word in the kingdom
of God are one. The
Apostle John wrote that there are three in heaven which agree or are one i.e.
God the Father, Word and the Holy Spirit. If I am filled with the Holy Spirit
then it can be said that I am filled with a clean word(s). God is the Word and
God is Holy Spirit.
Throughout the New Covenant,
demonic activity is synonymous with the activity of unclean spirits. If the
Holy Spirit can be called a clean spirit/word then an unclean spirit can be
called an unholy spirit/word.
UNCLEAN SPIRITS ARE UNCLEAN WORDS
Unclean spirits are nothing
more than unclean words. It is understood that we use words to covenant with
one another. If I walk by the Holy Spirit it means that I am in agreement with
God. If I am controlled by and walk with an unclean spirit/word, it means that
I am in covenant or agree with unholy words.
Casting out of unclean
spirits is to remove unholy agreements. This is why it is said that Jesus cast
out unclean spirits and replaced them with His clean and holy word.
And when evening had come, they brought to Him many
who were demon-possessed; and He cast
out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. (Matt 8:16, NAS)
Analogy: I call this
understanding simply God’s law of replacement. For example; if I remove
surgically a dysfunctional heart from someone, I must of course replace the
heart with a new heart. Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit extracted
unholy/unclean spirits and replaced them with the Holy Spirit word of God.
Again, the casting out of unclean spirits is to replace them with the Holy
Spirit word of God. Casting out of unclean spirits is a nullifying of an evil
covenant with a Godly covenant.
FALLACY CONCERNING DEMON ACTIVITY
The 12th chapter
of the Gospel of Matthew is all about our choice of words. To further prove our
understanding of unclean/clean spirits and spiritual/ word covenants, we will
look at one of the most misunderstood passages of scripture (Matthew 12:43-45)
concerning the dynamics of dealing with demonic activity.
It is important to know and
understand that this passage of scripture is talking about a man who is dealing
with influence from unclean spirits. Again, it is essential to know and
understand that this passage of scripture is dealing with speaking words. What
kind of Words? The answer is unclean words which are unclean spirits.
"When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and
finds none (Matt 12:43, NAS)
This verse says when or at the moment an unclean spirit
goes out of a man. The when is when
the man is speaking unclean words. How do I know that
the man is speaking? The phrase goes out
is used in the Gospel of John 21:23 to describe certain words being spoken.
Therefore, in our subject passage of scripture, goes out can be correctly used to mean a speaking or issuing forth
of words. Here the thing being issued forth or spoken by this man is an unclean
In Greek grammar, when a
personal pronoun follows a noun the personal pronoun is one and the same with
the noun. In this case, the verse says that when
an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he, meaning that the he is the man and not the unclean
spirit. The fallacy is that the unclean spirit is something other than a word
and that it is a demon which can go get more demons. Demonic influence has to
be agreed to as doe’s Godly influence.
MAN WITH “GARBAGE MOUTH” GETS INTO
Having now understood that we
are talking about the man and not the unclean spirit, we find that certain
things happen to a man who is speaking forth unclean spirits/words.
The man, he goes through dry places,
seeking rest, and finds none. (Matt
The man is seeking rest and
not the unclean spirit. Why would a demon seek rest? On the contrary, demons
are the epitome of unrest and promote such. God is giver of rest and not
This man while speaking
unclean, unholy spirit/words is walking through dry places (without the water
of God’s Holy Spirit/words). He seeks rest but cannot find rest. The faith rest
of God is resting in the word of God (Hebrews 3 & 4). Though this man is
seeking rest, rest can never be found while continuing to allow our words to
disagree with the word of God. This is “garbage mouth”!
MAN PART OF A WICKED GENERATION
“Wicked words being generated”
It is important to note that
this man is represented as an active member of an evil and adulterous
generation (Matt 12:45b). This man, by continuously speaking forth unclean
spirit/words, generates dryness and unrest.
While still seeking rest but producing dry places, the
man says, “I will return to my house from which I came. And when he comes, he
finds it empty, swept, and put in order (garnished or trimmed). (Matt 12:43, NAS}
The man goes back to his
house (The man is the house) and finds that his abode had been enlarged. His
house had been enlarged due to the fact that everything which had previously
been there had been removed. He found his house empty, swept and garnished.
"Then he goes and takes with him seven other
spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there.” (Matt 12:45a, NAS)
This man, again while
continuing to wickedly adulterate the word of God by speaking evilly, begins to
reap that which he has sown. This man relentlessly sowed unclean words/spirits
ultimately reaping a sevenfold harvest of unclean spirits.
“And the last state of that man is worse than the
first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation." (Matt 12:45b)
The last state of this man is
worse than the first. When man continuously generates wicked word covenants,
his well being continues to deteriorate.
It is a now season to discern
that which is being spoken from within and from without. Are the words with
which we are agreeing producing death or life?
Death and life is in the power of the
tongue (Proverbs 18:21a)
