James 3:8 – 10

8 But the tongue, not one of mankind can get it tamed. An unruly injurious thing, it is full of death-dealing poison. 9 With it we bless Jehovah, even [the] Father, and yet with it we curse men who have come into existence “in the likeness of God.” 10 Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. It is not proper, my brothers, for these things to go on occurring this way.

THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE SAYS IT ALL!

This is a most difficult matter for everybody, even for me.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL POSTS WILL BE PRECEDED BY THE IMPORTANT WORDS BELOW!

NOT ONLY WILL THE TRULY “WICKED” PEOPLE BE ETERNALLY DESTROYED BUT ALSO ALL THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO OUR CREATOR JEHOVAH GOD! THE ONUS IS ON EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY AND THEIR MINOR CHILDREN ARE ALL ACCEPTABLE! MILLIONS OF “NICE” PEOPLE WERE ALSO ALL DESTROYED IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH’S DAY! REMEMBER . . . JUST GOING TO CHURCH DOES NOT MAKE ONE A CHRISTIAN ANY MORE THAN SITTING IN A GARAGE MAKES ONE A MOTORCAR, AND LIFE WITHOUT PERSEVERING IN DOING JEHOVAH GOD’S EXPLICIT WILL TO THE BEST OF ONE’S ABILITY IS LIKE AN UNSHARPENED PENCIL . . . IT HAS NO POINT!

AND

2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6

5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to persevere in doing Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability! They must ENSURE that they are in Jehovah God’s ONE and ONLY TRUE FAITH!)

All remarks in Italics are also pertinent to the other subjects that have been or will be discussed, and also relevant to the Scripture that is being given now and those given later.

From the Scripture above that is repeated again later, I also tend to use my tongue occasionally inappropriately. If I am not satisfied, or do not accept certain actions, I can, to the point of being disrespectfully unreasonable and cold blooded, retaliate.

Please note: I do not use the Scripture as an excuse for condoning my actions. There are, however, persons, many of them that mistake kindness for weakness, and abuse any decency displayed or kindness received by them.

I am not proud of my above admission of weakness and failing, but fortunately, with age “comes” wisdom and the realisation that people are to be more loved and forgiven, than the taking exception of their actions.

These are not just words that I am speaking for the purpose of just wanting something to say.

In the past I experienced times when there were absolutely no solutions to my problems. There were so many major problems, and yet I cannot recall why I was really so worried about them.

This has mostly become my attitude today towards others.

A friend said to me quite a while back, that he realised that the person that he was so violently angry with that was so thoughtless and ill-mannered on the road had not even given his horrible actions a second thought, whereas my friend’s heart was being violently punished by himself. He immediately changed his “road rage” to “road tolerance” as I also have done, and believe it or not, I enjoy driving much more, and even find I have more time to observe what goes on around me while driving. And I never really suffered much as far as “road rage” is concerned.

“Counting to ten” is also supposed to assist in avoiding retaliation. Believe me, seeing a person through eyes that consider that person also to have serious problems that cause him or her much stress assists far more.

I think training yourself to have sympathy and consideration for others is not insurmountable.

The Bible states that “a kind word turns away anger”. Prove it to yourself. When you make a wrong move on the road and the other driver glares at you or retaliates abusively, show the kindest and most humble apologetic gestures that you can muster, and observe the change of the other person’s attitude.

Another thought that helped me a lot, was feeling guilty about bad-mouthing persons, especially in their absence and on then seeing them again.

Another important factor is the avoiding of certain persons or certain topics of discussion if possible when certain persons are around. If necessary, depart in extreme cases.

The Scripture below, however, allows for anger and denunciation when necessitated, but just as with Jehovah God, FULL control of anger must be maintained and the anger warranted.

Isaiah 30:27

Look! The name of Jehovah is coming from far away, burning with his anger and with heavy clouds. As for his lips, they have become full of denunciation, and his tongue is like a devouring fire.

Here again, it is a matter of conscience.  I can only hope for Jehovah God’s undeserved kindness and guidance!

The other matters spoken about in some of the Scriptures below, however, will never find justification by Jehovah God, as they are blatant hurtful acts against Jehovah God’s other children, good or bad.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING THAT I WILL ATTACH TO ALL MY POSTS:

I READ ALL THE RESPONSES TO MY WEBSITE POSTS AND I TRULY APPRECIATE THE VERY KIND COMMENTS, APPRECIATION AND ASSISTANCE THAT I RECEIVE. I WILL APPROVE ALL THOSE THAT I FEEL ARE WORTHY.

BEFORE I GO TO THE SCRIPTURES I MUST INFORM THAT I FEEL THAT I AM NOT COPING WITH ALL THE RESPONSES. I WILL, THEREFORE, LIMIT MY REPLIES TO THOSE THAT I FEEL THE DIRE NECESSITY TO REPLY TO.

WEBSTORM IN SOUTH AFRICA DESIGNED, CREATED AND HOSTS MY WEBSITE AND I AM TRULY SATISFIED WITH THEIR SERVICE AND AM ALSO HAPPY WITH “WORDPRESS”. MY INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER PROTECTS ME FROM ANY, OR AT LEAST, MOST “SPAM”!

I AM NOT VERY COMPUTOR LITERATE AT ALL AND I SUGGEST THAT THE VISITORS TO MY WEBSITE CONTACT THEIR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER, OR THE PEOPLE THAT HOST THEIR WEBSITES WHEN THEY EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO INFORM THAT I CANNOT LINK OR BE INVOLVED WITH ANY OTHER WEBSITES AS TIME DOES NOT ALLOW FOR IT. IF ANY PERSON DESIRES TO USE ANY OF MY INFORMATION THEY WILL BE MORE THAN WELCOME TO DO SO IF THEY MAINTAIN THE INFORMATION IN THE PROPER AND INTENDED CONTEXT.

I FEEL VERY UNHAPPY THAT I AM NOT ABLE TO REPLY TO ALL THE RESPONSES, BUT MUST STATE THAT THE RESPONSES ACT AS A MOTIVATION OVER AND ABOVE THE MOTIVATION THAT I RECEIVE FROM SPREADING JEHOVAH GOD’S WORD!

Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible:

Psalm 141:3

Do set a guard, O Jehovah, for my mouth; Do set a watch over the door of my lips.

Psalm 141:4

Do not incline my heart to anything bad, So as to carry on notorious deeds in wickedness With men who are practicing what is hurtful, That I may not feed myself on their dainties.

Proverbs 18:21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and he that is loving it will eat its fruitage.

Proverbs 20:15

There exists gold, also an abundance of corals; but the lips of knowledge are precious vessels.

Proverbs 21:23

He that is keeping his mouth and his tongue is keeping his soul from distresses.

Isaiah 30:27

Look! The name of Jehovah is coming from far away, burning with his anger and with heavy clouds. As for his lips, they have become full of denunciation, and his tongue is like a devouring fire.

Mark 7:15

There is nothing from outside a man that passes into him that can defile him; but the things that issue forth out of a man are the things that defile a man.”

Mark 7:20 – 23

20 Further, he said: “That which issues forth out of a man is what defiles a man; 21 for from inside, out of the heart of men, injurious reasonings issue forth: fornications, thieveries, murders, 22 adulteries, covetings, acts of wickedness, deceit, loose conduct, an envious eye, blasphemy, haughtiness, unreasonableness. 23 All these wicked things issue forth from within and defile a man.”

Romans 3:13

“Their throat is an opened grave, they have used deceit with their tongues.” “Poison of asps is behind their lips. (This Scripture is specifically for those who spread false doctrines and also untruths about Jehovah God and His Kingdom and purposes. The “open grave” is indicative of the place where those that teach false doctrine will send those that believe them, willingly or not.)

1 Corinthians 14:22

Consequently tongues are for a sign, not to the believers, but to the unbelievers, whereas prophesying is, not for the unbelievers, but for the believers.

Ephesians 4:25 – 30

25 Wherefore, now that YOU have put away falsehood, speak truth each one of YOU with his neighbour, because we are members belonging to one another. 26 Be wrathful, and yet do not sin; let the sun not set with YOU in a provoked state, 27 neither allow place for the Devil. 28 Let the stealer steal no more, but rather let him do hard work, doing with his hands what is good work, that he may have something to distribute to someone in need. 29 Let a rotten saying not proceed out of YOUR mouth, but whatever saying is good for building up as the need may be, that it may impart what is favourable to the hearers. 30 Also, do not be grieving God’s Holy Spirit, with which YOU have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom.

Philippians 2:11

11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

James 3:5 & 6

5 So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags. Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! 6 Well, the tongue is a fire. The tongue is constituted a world of unrighteousness among our members, for it spots up all the body and sets the wheel of natural life aflame and it is set aflame by Ge•hen´na.

James 3:8 – 10

8 But the tongue, not one of mankind can get it tamed. An unruly injurious thing, it is full of death-dealing poison. 9 With it we bless Jehovah, even [the] Father, and yet with it we curse men who have come into existence “in the likeness of God.” 10 Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. It is not proper, my brothers, for these things to go on occurring this way.
