Weapons Doomed To Fail !!!!!!

Weapons Doomed To Fail !!!!!!

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. (Isaiah 54:17)

There is great clatter in the forges and smithies of the enemy. They are making weapons wherewith to smite the saints. They could not even do as much as this if the Lord of saints did not allow them; for He has created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire. But see how busily they labor! How many swords and spears they fashion! It matters nothing, for on the blade of every weapon you may read this inscription: It shall not Prosper.

But now listen to another noise: it is the strife of tongues. Tongues are more terrible instruments than can be made with hammers and anvils, and the evil which they inflict cuts deeper and spreads wider. What will become of us now? Slander, falsehood, insinuation, ridicule-these are poisoned arrows; how can we meet them? The Lord God promises us that, if we cannot silence them, we shall, at least, escape from being ruined by them. They condemn us for the moment, but we shall condemn them at last and forever. The mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped, and their falsehoods shall be turned to the honor of those good men who suffered by them.

    I wish more people would think before speaking. Too many hurt others with words. Weapons though are making world news now unfortunately.

      The tongue and words that they speak cause most of the world’s problems. I’m glad you’re back Donna.

    Almost all of us have experienced this. It can be acutely painful to have our work and reputation maligned, especially if we strive to live with integrity. While God is capable of making us whole, it will not always be His plan to do so. He may want to remove something from our lives to which we have become more attached than to Him.

      You are so right. He knows what we need and when we need it and at times its not fun but necessary. Thanks Anna.

    I like the part of this scripture, “thou shalt condemn”; meaning not waiting for someone else or God to do it. You do it. vw

    My faith has proven that the tounges of hatred and deceipt are always indeed outed for the falsehoods that they are. I do my best to ignore slanderous hatred, but pay close attention (try my best, at least) to watch what comes out of my mouth, for I too am capable of spewing trash with no right to do so.

      And we all are, Sarah. We need to guard our tongues and that takes forethought.
