I have been teaching on the importance and value of asking and receiving God’s wisdom for direction in your life.
“Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you. She will place a lovely wreath on your head; she will present you with a beautiful crown.” Proverbs 4:6-9 NLT
Wisdom can only be received from the Lord, He is the source of it, so ask Him for wisdom in all you do. Please see James 1:5-8
Nita and I enjoy hearing from you and encourage you to send us your prayer requests so that we can pray over them. The Bible says that there is additional power when 2 or more agree in prayer. Please see Matthew 18:19. We also enjoy receiving any Bible questions you may have so that we can respond to them. Please send them to us at: email@example.com
“Sometimes it (the tongue) praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth, Surely my brothers and sisters this is not right!” James 3:9-10 NLT
James is saying that your tongue can be so unruly it can offer praise at one moment but then the next moment your tongue can send forth curses if you do not allow the Holy Spirit to help you control your tongue.
So what happens is that out of your mouth can come blessing and cursing and of course allowing this to happen in your life is not right. By allowing this you are not leading a Spirit filled life by asking the Holy Spirit to help you control your tongue.
“Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water? Does a fig tree produce olives, or a grapevine produce figs? No, and you can’t draw fresh water from a salty spring.” Please see scriptures in James 3:11-12 NLT
This is another wonderful thing about the Book of James, he uses common things we see and experience in nature to illustrate a spiritual statement. Jesus did this often in His ministry on earth. Jesus used common ordinary examples of what we see in nature to describe a spiritual truth.
James does the same thing here in a wonderful way that makes the understanding of these passages much more clear to understand.
Here a spring of water is illustrated and you know very well that a spring that is bubbling out of the ground will either deliver fresh water or bitter water, it is impossible to get both fresh and bitter water out of the same water bubbling out of the ground in the same place.
A fig tree cannot produce anything but figs. There is no confusion in the nature God made. A fig tree cannot produce olives or a grapevine produce figs.
The law of nature states that everything produces after its kind. An apple tree does not produce oranges. A tomato plant does not produce green beans.
Then James goes on to say you can’t draw fresh water from a salty spring.
When we compare the tongue that can bless someone at one moment and then another moment curse someone that does not make sense.
If you are a born again Christian no cursing should be coming out of your mouth it should only be positive things not things that tear down and destroy.
As a born again Christian you received the presence of the Holy Spirit when you received the new birth and He should be allowed to dominate your life. If that is the case and it should be, how can both blessing and cursing come out of your mouth?
If cursing is coming out of your mouth it is a sign that you have not fully submitted your life to the Holy Spirit. You are not leading a Spirit filled life.
What is happening if cursing is coming out of your mouth it is a sign that your flesh is dominating your spirit instead of your spirit dominating your flesh.
When James talks about cursing he is not only talking about actual cursing but also negative things that will tear down and not build you or someone else up.
I mentioned that in order to control your tongue you need to ask the Holy Spirit to help you this is also done through these verses:
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies (which includes your tongue) a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed (fit in with the world) to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Please see Romans 12:1-2
The way you renew your mind is that you read and meditate on the Word of God every day.
The more Word of God you get into your mind the more you will start thinking, talking and reacting like the Word of God tells you that you should do.
You will find out that your tongue will stop the cursing and negative talk that you have been doing and instead praises of God and words of edification, exhortation and comfort will come out of your mouth.
Edification means to lift up and exhortation means to encourage. When those things come forth from your tongue you are in line with the Word of God and you are on your way to leading a Spirit filled life. What I mean by that is allowing the Holy Spirit and the Word of God to direct your life rather than a tongue that’s full of fire.
It will change things for the good that is coming forth from your tongue and save you a lot of heartache and trouble. Amen?
Why allow that tongue of yours to destroy your life, is it worth it?
The Book of James gives you wisdom from the Lord and practical advice for your everyday Christian life.
Let’s look further into the Book of James.
“If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. James 3:13 NLT
This definition of using God’s wisdom in your life should be the goal of every Christian that way you will live a life pleasing to the Lord, an honorable life.
Your life will be full of good works (a life bearing much fruit) and you will be living that kind of life because you will be humble and that comes from God’s wisdom that He imparts to you when you ask Him for it and are open to receiving it.
I pray you are seeing all of the many blessings that receiving wisdom from the Lord gives you.
Look back at Proverbs 4:6-9 that I quoted when I started this teaching. Those scriptures along with the other ones I have given you tell you of all of the benefits of operating in God’s wisdom.
The blessings are so rich and many that it is staggering.
“But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealously and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unscriptural and demonic. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.” James 3:14-16 NLT
Do you have jealousy and selfish ambition in your life?
That comes from being wrapped up in yourself rather than the Lord. That comes from not wanting others to be blessed of the Lord and prosper.
Does it bother you if you see someone else getting ahead in life?
If you have jealousy and selfish ambition in your life you will have disorder and evil of every kind in your life?
The truth of the matter is that the Lord wants to prosper you just like you see others being prospered but like they say patience is a virtue.
Your turn will come: “And let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” (If you don’t give up) Galatians 6:9
The days of your blessings from the Lord will come if you keep doing the right things according to God’s Word. James warns you to keep your life free of jealousy and selfish ambition.
“But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.” Please see James 3:17-18 NLT
These scriptures in James 3:17-18 gives a wonderful checklist for you to see if you are being led with the Lord’s wisdom or not.
See if you are lining up with all of the things that James says wisdom will bring in your life?
James caps off the last part of verse 18 by saying that you will reap a harvest of righteousness.
What does righteousness mean?
In its simplest definition it means right standing with God and leading a life that is pleasing to God. If you have right standing with God you are on the right course.
God bless your week with the Lord by living in His wisdom.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: email@example.com and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
