What about God?
Your words are fire.
The words that you speak can warm and inspire others or they can be a raging wildfire of destruction.
Did you know that your soul is created with fiery yearning for your Creator? Each word that you speak is being recorded by heavenly scribes. You need to weigh each word very carefully.
I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak. Matthew 12:36
We can begin each day by lifting up our words to the Lord Jesus in a sacrifice of love. In ancient days there was a model sacrificial system. Anything sacrificed had to be unblemished. Do you strive to have your words unblemished and untainted? As we lift up our words to our Lord Jesus Christ something of His Light should imprint upon our heart and soul and be present with us throughout the day and the night.
Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me. Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. Psalm 42:8
As we lift up our words in prayer or calling out, the inner flame of Jesus within our soul, who is the Light of the world, will eliminate whatever negative thoughts and doubts that arise from within our heart. Since we pray without ceasing, our sacrifice of our words teaches us the fear of God. Today it is known as reverence and awe. Jesus imparts to us His thread of grace drawn down from the Father of Lights.
If you have ever burned with wood to heat your home or enjoyed a campfire you know that after you burn wood there are ashes. Each day, through the light of the redemptive process we have an opportunity to remove our ashes in prayer and confession. By removing our ashes from the previous day they do not not build up and quench our fire.
We all long for perfect worship, one in which there is no distraction, no doubt, no holding back, no wandering from God. But we miss the whole point! Our worship and the daily living out of our faith is all about struggle, an ongoing inner process of transformation. Indeed, there is a fire in our hearts but in order to meet and have the Lord consume our passions, distractions, and thoughts who are unwelcome guests in our heart, we need that spiritual-physical tension. That is one of the main points of prayer. This day, choose to allow Jesus to consume your negative thoughts and transgressions with His secret fire that burns inside of you.
As we are about to see words are dynamic and are packed with energy!
An important concept to master is that the spoken word is a form of kinetic energy. They will always be moving and influencing anything, for good or for bad, depending upon the intent, vibration, tone, and words.
By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. Psalm 33:6
For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. Psalm 33:9
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3
Dr. Dorsey, describes in his book, Healing Words, when he discovered the power of prayer in medicine. He went into his observations not believing how powerful words and prayer were. He proved that prayer is as a valid and vital healing tool as drugs or surgery. His book Meaning & Medicine and Recovering the Soul offers bold integration of science and spirituality.
It is critical to note that there are a plethora of worldviews that can lead a person astray. For instance, I once heard a guest on a radio show and he was talking about biology acting like a biblical community. He used many verses from the Bible and his perspective was unique and intriguing. A few weeks later I heard a more extensive interview with him as a guest. I was captivated and ordered his book. After a month I had not received the book and so I reordered the book. A month later I received both books. I sat down to read and began with the Dedication page. To GAIA, Mother Earth may she forgive us of all our sins. Right then, and there, I stopped reading. I could not throw the books away or give them away for someone might read the heresy. I am not a fan of burning books but in this instance there was no option. There were grains of truth but hybridization is something we are standing firm against. Especially when dealing with our most intimate posesstion, our body, we want to keep it pure. Imagine my shock when two decades later I saw his work prominently featured as a reference in a conservative Christian website! Something may sound great, it may make sense, it may be actionable, but if it is not in alignment with the Word of God it can be as slippery as the serpent in the Garden of Eden, with the same lethal consequences. Dr. Bruce Lipton is the author and unless he has had a conversion moment he is as dangerous to a person of faith as the movie Zeigeist.
Sound of Silence
We live in an age of Dual Purpose. In case you do not know, dual purpose is a function that serves two purposes. Oftentimes, these are two functions are diametrically opposed with opposite purposes.
Silence can be golden. It behooves us to take a few moments each day whether in the morning or even for reflection, escaping the busyness of life. It is a time when we can communicate freely with God, collect our thoughts, and reflect upon our actions. Take time to get your bearings with some silence. It will help your overload and over stimulation. You require calm, peace, and silence.
The government on the other hand is strongly attempting to silence your voice right now. Agencies give the nod to one another and without consulting you, dangerous regulations are being passed. They are negating your very being and existence. It is as if you are the invisible man or woman. This attitude is prevalent within government agencies who have already deem you extinct. You have heard about the slaughter-bots haven't you? In essence, they are slaughtering those whom they deem irrelevant. Notice the people in the audience laughing and whistling out loud as the person gets blown up. Passing these regulations with no consent is the first step of the depopulation and you can see for yourself the horrific physical extinction which is planned.
God's DNA is illuminated in each of us. Let's take a look!
Take a few minutes to watch the incredible video above to see unique and special you are. The good news is that even though we may have been born with an anomaly or aberration in our genome it can be fixed! Through the study of epigenetics it has been proven that environment can turn on and off good genes and bad genes. You are not stuck with a certain predisposition. The Bible and later science is conforming that clean living can illuminate your genes with health. This takes the form of clean thoughts, actions, speech, home, and body. You need to protective actions against negative thoughts and behaviors. Also shield yourself from harmful electromagnetic and Radio frequency waves as well as reducing or eliminating chemicals and synthetic from your environment.
The following information about our DNA is riveting and science is only scratching the surface.
In 2017 a Russian team lead by Elena S. Petukhova discovered a 3:2 musical ration in our DNA in the 3:2 of the hydrogen bonding. When we sing we sing music to our DNA sequence. Petoukhov also discovered that the 3:2 ratio is mathematically related to the tensor family of genetic matrices, music that brings healing to all life.
Science, the headline reads, "Finally, the Book of Life and Instructions for Navigating It." The DNA molecule is a 3.3 billion-letter book. DNA has not only been constructed by words, but all of its information is just words.
The following passage from Lee Strobel's new book, The Case For a Creator, reads:
The six feet of DNA coiled inside every one of our body's one hundred trillion cells contains a four-letter chemical alphabet that spells out precise assembly instructions for all the proteins from which our bodies are made. Cambridge-educated Stephen Meyer demonstrated that no hypothesis has come close to explaining how information got into biological matter by naturalistic means.
"Let's talk about DNA, then," I said. "You've written that there's a 'DNA-to-design argument.' What do you mean by that?"
Meyer removed a pair of gold-rimmed glasses from his shirt pocket and put them on as he began to give his answer.
"Very simply," he said, "I mean that the origin of information in DNA—which is necessary for life to begin—is best explained by an intelligent cause rather than any of the types of naturalistic causes that scientists typically use to explain biological phenomena."
"When you talk about 'information' in DNA, what exactly do you mean?
" I asked. "We know from our experience that we can convey information with a twenty-six-letter alphabet, or twenty-two, or thirty—or even just two characters, like the zeros and ones used in the binary code in computers. One of the most extraordinary discoveries of the twentieth century was that DNA actually stores information—the detailed instructions for assembling proteins—in the form of a four-character digital code. "The characters happen to be chemicals called adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. Scientists represent them with the letters A, G, C, and T, and that's appropriate because they function as alphabetic characters in the genetic text. Properly arranging those four 'bases,' as they're called, will instruct the cell to build different sequences of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Different arrangements of characters yield different sequences of amino acids."
"DNA is more like a library," he said. "The organism accesses the information that it needs from DNA so it can build some of its critical components. And the library analogy is better because of its alphabetic nature. In DNA, there are long lines of A, C, G, and T's that are precisely arranged in order to create protein structure and folding. To build one protein, you typically need 1,200 to 2,000 letters or bases—which is a lot of information." [End of quote]
Stephen Jay Gould. Dr. Wise authored the book, Faith, Form, and Time. His book fully endorses the Word of God including the young earth premise. Wise goes into depth on the subject of DNA and words:
The DNA molecule has hierarchal coding as well. DNA includes a string of four different nucleotides (guanine, cytosine, adenine, and thymine)—the building blocks of DNA—analogous to the three building blocks of Morse Code (dots, dashes, and gaps). The four nucleotides of DNA are arranged in sequences of three (called codons) to code for the twenty or so amino acids used in living organisms—analogous, again, to Morse Code coding for the twenty-six letters of the English alphabet. This characteristic of DNA is so much like language that it is commonly called the "genetic code," and the name codon is given to the set of three nucleotides that codes for a particular amino acid.
At every level of structure, DNA uses codes.∙ At every level DNA has parts that are designed to be interchangeable.∙ DNA's information seems to be arranged according to complex rules.∙ DNA is found within a complex cellular system designed to translate DNA information into a form usable by the cell, to create specific structures the cell needs, and to place them in their proper location in the cell.All these characteristics are shared by human languages. On several different levels and in several different ways, DNA has the structure of language. All organisms on earth—from bacteria to animals, protists to plants, algae to fungi—have DNA.
Evidence of language is found in all earth's organisms. Since God created with evidence of His nature, and since God is a communicating God, the language basis of organisms should not come as a surprise to creationists. In fact, it is likely that principles of human linguistics may be helpful in unraveling DNA's language. And since language in our experience is only produced by some communicating intelligence, non-creationists would not expect DNA to be based upon a language.
New research that began in the 1990s and continues on today has uncovered the astounding relationship between words, light (radiant information), frequencies, and DNA. This research was led by Dr. Pjotr Garajajev. Consider the following information:This research was led by Dr. Pjotr Garjajev, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences as well as the Academy of Sciences in New York. The Russian research was taking a wide angle and held an open view in their studies. The research team included biophysicists, molecular biologists, embryologists and even linguistic experts. Their research revealed that the supposed junk DNA that has been completely neglected and forgotten by western mainstream science, was no redundant leftover of evolution at all. Linguistic studies revealed that the sequencing of the codons of the non-coding DNA follow the rules of some basic syntax. There is a definite structure and logic in the sequence of these triplets, like some biological language. Research further revealed that the codons actually form words and sentences just like our ordinary human language follows grammar rules.The most astonishing experiment performed by Garjajev's group is the reprogramming of the DNA codon sequences using modulated laser light. From their discovered grammatical syntax of the DNA language, they were able to modulate coherent laser light and even radio waves and add semantics (meaning) to the carrier wave. In this way they were able to reprogram in vivo DNA in living organisms by using the correct resonant frequencies of DNA. The most impressive discovery made so far is that spoken language can be modulated to the carrier wave with the same reprogramming effect. Now this is a baffling and stunning scientific discovery! Our own DNA can simply be reprogrammed by human speech, supposing that the words are modulated on the correct carrier frequencies!Whereas western science uses complicated bio chemical processes to cut and paste DNA triplets in the DNA molecule, Russian scientists use modulated laser light to do exactly the same thing. The Russians have proven to be very successful in repairing damaged DNA material in vivo!
Laser light therapies based on Garjajev's findings are already applied in some European academic hospitals with success on various sorts of skin cancer. The cancer is cured without any remaining scars. [End of quote]God spoke all things into existence with knowledge-laden words. If this is true, then there should be evidence everywhere—and there is.

Consider this paragraph published in the June 2011 issue of Scientific American. The author is Shawn Brixey, Arts Chair, Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media, University of Washington:
In my recent work, I mostly make poems out of matter and energy. Some are small exotic projects that at first blush seem nearly impossible. I built a work that exploits the phenomenon of sonoluminescence, in which extremely high-pressure sound waves in liquids create tiny sources of electromagnetic energy. The installation converts text from a computer keyboard to synthesized speech with enough sonic force to form and hold a tiny bubble at the center of a jar of water. The sound causes the bubble to implode and then form again 50,000 times a second. Through a process that is still not fully understood, the implosions generate a bright point of visible light. It is a star in a jar created by spoken word. [End of quote] Oh, the amazing interchangeability of words and light—and their oneness!! Deadly Emotions, under the heading, “How Emotions Turn Into Disease,” written by Don Colbert, M.D.: We can sum up in one word the basic communication link between what we think in the brain and what we experience in the cells of the body: neuropeptides. Now, before your eyes glaze over and you assume that I’m going to assault you with a lost of medical mumbo jumbo, let me assure you that I’m going to describe the physical process of how emotions turn into disease in very simple terms. Those of you who are physicians or medical researchers may find this explanation overly simplified, but I ask for your patience. Dr. Candace Pert, a noted stress researcher, demonstrated that a certain class of our immune cells—the monocytes—have tiny molecules on their surface called neuroreceptors that are a perfect fit for neuropeptides. All of the monocytes have these receptor sites. The brain produces the neuropeptides—which are chains of amino acids—and conducts them along the nervous cells throughout the body. They are like the keys that fit into the molecular locks of every cell of the body. Dr. Pert has called them “bits of brain floating through the body.” The brain “talks” to the immune cells all over the body, and in turn, the immune system cells communicate back to the brain, using these messengers called neuropeptides. If your brain interprets physical perceptions as anger, fear, or depression, every immune cell of your body knows that interpretation very quickly! [End of quote]
Words are Seeds
When our words go forth we are planting seeds of light or dark radiance. In our modern world many of us have been distanced from our agrarian roots and have forgotten the seeds of truth that were planted in Scripture. Below are just a few of the agricultural references contained in the bible.
As a garden connoisseur, I know that the seed is vital for a healthy plant. The seed must be viable so it needs to be as fresh as possible, not moldy, not dehydrated. It must be placed in fertile ground and protected from hungry birds. For it is through that seed, that a plant will mature. While the plant is developing it gets it's nourishment from the stored seed energy. This is true of good seed or bad seed, for instance, weeds.
Scripture lays out some fundamental truths about seeds. It does not matter if you are gardening, speaking, relationships...just about everything is a seed. As you speak keep these simple biblical truths in mind: words are seeds:
Interesting isn't it, that whatever we plant we will eat? Proverbs specifically says we will be filled with our own devices! Will our devices eventually be our downfall, especially as we substitute them for God?
Negative Words, Thoughts, Health
We are being inundated with negative word and thoughts. This negativity permeates into our inner most being and possibly touches our very soul.
In ancient times, when man traveled he would carry with him a piece of dense glowing wood to start his next fire. This was called a rotem coal. It could easily ignite and spread a fire quickly. The rotem coal became a metaphor about evil or negative speech. Just as the rotem coals ignites and spreads so does evil speech.
There was a time in history when all mankind used their speech to build a tower to heaven and make war against God.
Tower of Babel
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. ... And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach to heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men built. And the Lord said, Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have schemed to do. Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the face of all the earth; and they left off the building of the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confuse the language of all the earth; and from there did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Genesis 11
In the narrative the Tetragrammatron for God is used, whereas in the Flood account the name Elohim is used for God.
After the flood man lived simply in a tribal setting. A New Generation of men migrated from kedem, meaning they moved east, away from the Ancient of Days (God) of their fathers, saying they we neither want neither Him nor His rule over us.
They found themselves a king, Nimrod, who with a socio-political structure.
He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, As Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. Genesis 10:8,9
Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the lord (10:9): it is not written, Nimrod [was a mighty hunter], but like Nimrod: as the one who snared people by their words, so did he to others, snaring people with words. The very name Nimrod has the word "rebel" as its root.
What does it mean to be a mighty hunter before the Lord? While the basic understanding of the text would imply physical prowess, a biblical commentator, Rashi, opts for a more conceptual definition. He describes Nimrod as being a master manipulator who beguiled and ensnared people with his words. He was also devious an an innovator, being the first person to establish a kingdom and to lead others astray.
At once the people said: "Come, let us build a city, and a tower, and let us make us a name."The people of that generation were united, but in pursuit of a corrupt goal. But their type of unity was superficial. The generation of the dispersal led by Nimrod, did not appreciate the uniqueness of human beings. A lost brick was mourned; not a wasted life. They saw people as having less value than another brick in the wall, much as we find today.
God punished that generation measure for measure, by causing confusion and resulted from the mixing of languages.
... And they said, Come, Next their minds sprouted with bitter gall and wormwood (Deut. 29:17) they decided to build a great city and a mighty kingdom. There was a general call out to the population to give their strength for the common goal to construct an immense tower whose peak would reach the heavens.
It is revealing that this group settled in the east, on a plain with no building materials. They would manufacture all the materials with their own strength and ingenuity. They intended to make the tower and a name for themselves, by making something out of out of nothing. They believed that with a united force they could discover the hidden forces of nature and overcome them. They wanted to harness them to protect them from disasters and evil forces. It would also serve as a shield against war and societal hardship.
From the top of their tower they would wage war against God.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men built. And the Lord said, Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language;
This is found here and Ecclesiastes 5:6 that their interpersonal relationships were built with oneness, deeper investigation indicates that their conversation was filled with empty and vain words.
God came down and splintered their language into seventy and eventually they disbanded not completing their tower.
Are witnessing a re-occurrence of this play our before our eyes?
Danger of Speaking Defeat
People of faith are living defeated lives. How do I know? The words they speak are of defeat: pain, anxiety, restlessness, apathy, despair, anguish, and more.
You can glean from the playbook from Daniel 4 of King Nebuchadnezzar who with his words spoke words of pride and no sooner had he spoken those words, a voice from heaven declared his kingdom was taken from him and he became as a beast of the field:
The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws. Daniel 4:33
In the 1990’s I my own personal challenge of faith and health. The Lord gave me three passages which I applied at the time and continually afterwards if I feel myself moving into unhealthy space:
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
His delight is in the fear of the Lord,
And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His ears, Isaiah 11:2-3
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk Isaiah 58:8-9
The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. Isaiah 58:11-12
I was not to look at what was physically happening in my body, instead, I was to trust the Lord because He was speaking health to my body. It was an intense exercise of faith, but the Lord prevailed! It is my fervent prayer that each of you men and women of faith experience this blessing of health.
Have you noticed of late that America is obsessed with demonizing others? It is if for our country to exist, or at least the government that we are compelled to demonize other people, countries, ways of life.
We are currently in a war in which propaganda is the name of the game. One of the great tools throughout history is to demonize ones political, social, ideological foes. It is a practice which is universal and the consequences thereof can be as catastrophic as the great tsunami, both for the ones demonizing and the victims of such propaganda.
Societies across the globe use this tactic in free abandon by all segments of the population to justify their position and policy. The struggle in America has been fraught with propaganda. Mis-information, dis-information, out-right lying has been woven into the fabric of American government and news to the degree that truth is obscured. From the Revolutionary War to the Civil War, to the Vietnam War, to our recent War on Terrorism, this tactic has been employed. It is so bad that the very concept of Truth is at stake with the population at large unable to determine what truth is because technology and the controllers have created environment dense fog of ubiquitous information.
Currently Russia is America’s demon darling. Yesterday out of 36 articles on the Homeland Security Newswire, eighteen or half of the articles, were demonizing Russia. On some days it skyrockets to ¾ of the articles carried. We are to believe that the Russians are responsible for every woe America has from hacking our public-commenting system to creating public discord over US farming, GMO debate, and agricultural trade.
As of this negativity seeps into our psyche so how bad is this negativity impacting us and our health? Let’s see how words convert to the physical.
You’re driving down the road in your word-made vehicle and your radio is discussing a dreaded disease.
You can relate to a couple of the listed signs that suggest you may have a problem. You are alarmed. You buy into it. For example, let’s suppose the dreaded disease is cancer.
Immediately, your brain produces messengers called neuropeptides which are dispatched to the immune cells at around 200 miles per hour. The immune cells have tiny molecules on their surface called neuroreceptors which are locked shut. Only the neuropeptide has the key that opens the door which gives the word message it carries access to the immune system.
Simultaneously, billions of immune cells have their doors thrown open, and the neuropeptide shouts, “Bad, bad news! You have cancer! You’re going to die! Woe is me! What will happen to my family?”
The body immediately begins to react to the words it hears literally at the cell level. Now the nocebo effect enters the equation and the spiraling down continues. (Godsaidmansaid)
The placebo and nocebo effect is important for us to wrestle with for who we turn to when we are ill. Do we turn the Living God who is the Lifter of our Head and Healer or do be completely, and blindly, trust our doctors digging our health into a deeper pit?
Negativity is not only sinking into our bodies but our brains as well:
April 2013 issue of Whistle Blower, under the heading of “Americans Snapping by the Millions,” listed very stark data regarding the mental health of the United States:
- One-third of U.S. employees suffer chronic, debilitating stress.
- One-half of all 18- to 33-year-olds experience levels of stress that keep them awake at night.
- 75-90% of visits to the doctor [General Practitioner] are stress related.
- Stress is now known to play a major role in the progression of cancer.
- The CDC reports 23% of U.S. women take antidepressants.
- 11% of Americans 12 and up take SSRI antidepressants that are mood-altering drugs with suicide warnings; statistics show an alarming correlation between antidepressant-medicated students and school shootings.
- Suicide surpasses car crashes as a leading cause of injury and death.
20% of New York City children 6-12 have been diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, depression, or bi-polar disorder.
[End of quotes]
April, 2013, Psychology Today reports:
14 million U.S. adults suffer from BDP (Borderline Personality Disorder).
- 5.7 million U.S. adults have bi-polar disorder.
- In a given year, 2.4 million American adults are diagnosed with schizophrenia.
- Approximately 6 million U.S. adults experience panic disorders.
The following paragraph, published in October 2011 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, reads:
Antidepressants were the third most common prescription drug taken by Americans of all ages in 2005-2008 and the most frequently used by persons aged 18-44 years. From 1988-1994 through 2005-2008, the rate of antidepressant use in the United States among all ages increased nearly 400%. [End of quote]
The world is in a state of confusion. Men’s lives are upside-down. Evil has become good and good has become evil.
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21
The best remedy for our lives was inspired thousands of years ago and written down in the Bible with scientists just recently beginning to understand, much less fully comprehend.
Physiological Impact of Negative Words
It is now known that bone marrow produces white and red blood cells prolifically when one focuses on happy, positive thoughts (words). When negative destructive thoughts (words) are doted upon, the bone marrow's production is inhibited. White blood cells kill disease and red blood cells bring oxygen and life. We are made out of words (thoughts), therefore the human body, as well as all creation, responds to them.
In an article in Newsweek, February 26, 1996, the headline reads, "For the Obsessed, the Mind Can Fix the Brain." About five million Americans suffer from something known as obsessive compulsive disorder; for instance, the compulsion to wash one's hands over and over again even though they are not dirty. The following is a quote from the article:
The most popular treatment for OCD is Prozac or a similar drug. Some 30 percent of OCD patients do not respond well to medication though, and if a patient stops the pills the symptoms return. But last week, Schwartz and four UCLA colleagues reported in Archives of General Psychiatry that the mind can be at least as powerful as medicine when it comes to remodeling the brain. Behavioral modification (changing the way patients act) and cognitive therapy (changing how they think) can alter the biology of their brains. PET scans of brain activity after therapy show markedly decreased activity in the "are-you-sure-the-stove-is-off? candidate." The team had seen hints of this in a 1992 preliminary study, but last week is the first to report persuasive evidence that, as Schwartz says, "the mind can change the brain." [End of quotes]

The following excerpt is from an April 8, 2002 issue of U.S. News and World Report under the heading, “Prescription Power:”
New Mexico last month became the first state to allow psychologists to undergo 450 hours of training and write prescriptions for psychotropic medications. Yet some psychologists don’t want to prescribe: They cite evidence showing their “talking” therapy is as effective as drugs. Says David Antonuccio, a psychologist at the University of Nevada, Reno, “The tools we seek might not be as good as the tools we already have.” [End of quote]
Everything is and responds to words. Be careful about the words you entertain. If words are everything, what do you think would be the result of continually being bathed in negative words resulting in results mental and physical trauma, and an accelerated death.
How about this statement in the April 2010 issue of Psychology Today?
Evidence shows that prompting people to relive a recent trauma by talking about it or by visualizing the event may actually provoke posttraumatic stress disorder, not prevent it. [End of quote]
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Medical science and the field of psychology are, more and more these days, confirming this verse:
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21
The words which we think, speak, and act upon also have a direct bearing on our physical and mental health. This should be of no surprise when we understand that all things are created out of words. Therefore, even our bodies respond to words. It should be a concern to us that medical research estimates 75% of the typical human’s thoughts (words) are negative or counterproductive.
What we tell ourselves about ourselves and our lives day after day has a tremendous effect on shaping our reality—for good or bad. It is now known that bone marrow produces white and red blood cells prolifically (White blood cells kill disease and red blood cells bring oxygen and life.) when one focuses on happy, positive thoughts (words). When negative, destructive thoughts (words) are doted upon, the bone marrow’s production is inhibited.
Well-Being and Our Words
The words which we think, speak and act upon also have a direct bearing on our physical and mental health. This should be of no surprise, when we understand that all things are created out of words. Therefore even our bodies respond to words. It should be a concern to us that medical research estimates 75% of the typical human's thoughts (words) are negative or counterproductive. The following excerpt was found in Ladies' Home Journal in an article about mental well-being:
Yet medical researchers estimate that more than 75 percent of the thoughts we have every day are negative or counterproductive, working against us instead of supporting our well-being and happiness. What we tell ourselves about ourselves and our lives day after day has a tremendous effect on shaping our reality—for good or bad.
Harnessing Words of Light and Life
Everyone from the government to the military to your physician wants to harness light (energy) and life. Truth be told, most people want to harness energy and life, but do not necessarily want to work at bridling their words.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you Matthew 5:44
We can learn much from the wisdom of James 3:1-10:
1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Harnessing the light encapsulated your words is a difficult and tedious process. Scientists are learning how to exploit the process of photosynthesis in hopes to learn how to capture the light. You can go to the Bible and instantly glean luminous words and concepts. These precious words are right at your fingertips! One thing that government does know and really any person who has mastered a skill, it takes, practice, practice, practice. If you fail one day miserably, His mercies are new each morning, so get up, fill yourself with His nourishment by way of the Word, prayer, and worship. Give the day another try,
Our love and awe of Jesus grows out of the connection between the Him and the Universe. From this experiential awareness, the fiery attachment of love bursts forth, as well as the retreat of with awe before His Majesty. We all have a fiery nature, so let our words be of inspiration and encouragement!
