You’ve heard it said that the power of life and death is in the tongue. Individual words themselves hold very little power over anything. However, when they are put together in an intelligible fashion, they can hold the power of understanding. When understanding comes in contact with a question of belief in that understanding, the result is one or more actions. These actions have the power to shape everything around us, including other actions that will eventually produce fruit toward life and death. In this aspect, the power of life and death is not in the tongue only. The ear has equal significance. So, what are you trying to communicate to us here, Preacher?? This one thing: That what you believe can bring forth life or death and in the case of the gospel, eternal life or eternal death. Even wrong things correctly understood will eventually produce death if coupled with the power of faith.
That said, I am writing these seven (7) principles that will be revealed when the true gospel of God is correctly understood. Make no mistake, there are false teachers who bring about false gospels. You are responsible for yourself, so you must weigh what you hear before you commit it to belief. Consider what the Word tells us in 1st John 4:1,
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
So by the Word, it is okay if you hear a false doctrine, and try the belief, but until you have solid proof that the spirit is from God, we ought not put our pure faith into it. God, as well, gave us the Bible to study if we are unsure of something. I advise everyone to study the Bible when a doctrine is preached to verify it is from God, even the doctrines that come from me. May God bless you.
