The Forked Tongue

14 Jan

The Forked Tongue…

The Hebrew word for serpent or snake is nahash. It sounds like someone is whispering, nahash, nahash. The word for snake also means the whisperer, nahash.

In the Bible, the serpent is the symbol of the enemy. The enemy is a whisperer; he works in a subtle crafty way, in secret, in the darkness. The work of the enemy begins with a whisper.

A thought comes into your mind and you’re wondering, “How did that happen?” He doesn’t say it out loud. He whispers a little thing, a little idea. If you go with that, the whisper becomes a sin.

The whisper becomes an action; the action becomes a habit, the habit a lifestyle and the lifestyle a destiny. How do you fight the enemy? You fight him when that thing is just a notion, a whisper or a temptation.

That thing comes in, that whisper of anger, that whisper of lust, that whisper of doing what you know is wrong, you fight it. Drown it out when you hear that little word of temptation. Speak the Word of God and you will drown out the whisperer.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Today fight sin when it’s just a whisper, a thought, a notion. Drown it out at the beginning.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
