Do Our Words Have Power

Do you believe the words we speak have power to effect us in body and spirit and do you think that our words live on forever? Could you give me scripture for your answer also.

Yes words have power. here's an example...With words we receive our salvation by faith. Confession & faith, our two keys to salvaton. Something to ponder....We all know what Proverbs 18 vs 20 & 21 says, then there's Romans 10 vs 9 & 10. Read those two & see what revelation you recieve for yourself.

Interesting to know that those very words of faith & power bring us to our receiving salvation....

God Bless

the bible says "can bitter water and sweet water come from the same fountain?"

when you speak you must speak good things..because as children of God we have the power to speak to situations. If you speak negatively to a situation so shall it be. the bible also says hold your tongue. One has to be cautious with words and ask themselves "Would God say that"
---nikki on 10/28/08


Words carry much weight and power. What we say can make or break us. How we say them and when they are said also carries much weight and power. The bible tells us that. It is time and season for all things.Ecclesiastes chap 3.
---Robyn on 10/27/08


I have a couple of adult step children every disease or alliment they see mentioned on TV they begin to say things like I have those symptoms or I'm afraid I have that.Most of the time when they go to the doc they have it.Now with me I am 73 by the way and a retired nurse.I say I have a symptom of whatever but I believe it will pass and each day I'm better and don't have these diseases.I do think there are virus etc.that people get that have nothing to do with words that we speak or bad thoughts.Also in the cases of children born with some horrible defect.Some things are a cause of original sin.Very pitiful but these individuals will be whole in heaven as they are innocent.Adam and Eve's sin we do still pay for.

Of course our words have a lasting effect on everything around us.You don't need scripture to back that up.
Honestly,I'm somewhat hesitant to respond as i've been on websights where if you dont post the way the moderator believes it is censored.This is a tactic that only serves to stifle the Spirit of truth,and untill i know that there isnt a denominational agenda then i cant in all good consience post my take on the issue.
Thank you,
In the love of Christ,

---Bill on 10/26/08


We are created in the image and likeness of God even though we are flawed.If we speak bad thoughts a lot and dwell on them I think they can have some affect on us.I think we should be as positive as possible.After all as God's children we win in the end.
---shirley on 10/26/08


There is no doubt that words have power. But words alone do not change reality... no matter your confession.

Notice Mt 11:23
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....

Jesus taught "speak to the mountain", not that one should "confess" the mountain wasn't there.

When confronted with the giant, David didn't say "What giant?" or "that's no giant". He faced a real giant and overcame him in the power of the Lord.

Linda: I appreciate you clarifying your position for me. I'm glad to hear you reject WoF teaching.

Leslie: I'm not quite sure what you mean. Do you believe our words have the ability to affect reality in that, for example, saying I am sick will actually cause me to become sick?
---Bobby3 on 9/26/08


The Bible says that there is power of life and death in our tongues. If you say "I feel sick", whether you feel that way or not, you then start to get sick. This has been proven by science as well, it's called Quantum Physics. It has even been proven that the Healing Scriptures in the Bible read in Hebrew have the power to change cell structure in humans. When these scriptures were read in other languages over a plate of sand, nothing happened to the sand. When the Scriptures were read in Hebrew over the plate of sand, the sand began to have an invisable hand write in it the Hebrew letters.
---Leslie on 9/26/08


Bobby, this is my stance regarding the confession of the mouth:

I believe that everything was created by the Word. The worlds were framed by it. Everything God says is truth, even when our minds cannot conceive it. Many WoF adherers have insisted that we can create anything we want with our mouths. I, on the other hand, choose to believe that simple agreement with God, who is our Father, is done with the mouth and reflects the meditation of the heart. That simple agreement does not make God do anything. He has completed the work. What it does do is release from our spirit the salvation He placed there when we were born again. Everything that pertains unto life and godliness has been given you.
---Linda_G. on 9/26/08


Instead of confessing His Word to make it true or to make it come to pass, I confess the Word to establish my heart in grace and renew my mind to present truth. If you watch people who are always at variance with God with the words of their mouth, you will find them asking why God says one thing and they experience another. Not having an answer to the problem, they impugn God's very character and nature because of a lack of knowledge and they perish in one or more of the aspects of redemption. Death is more than just laying the body down. It includes all the things listed under the curse of the law in Deut. 28.
---Linda_G. on 9/26/08


I am not viewing confession as something we do from the outside to make something true. I view it as my agreement from the heart (inside) with what is already truth and, as I have believed, so be it unto me. Faith is a spiritual muscle. It is always there. Just like the biceps and triceps in our arms, they are there but usually unnoticed unless they are exercised through use. In the old covenant, defilement came from without. In the new covenant, defilement (of the soul, not the spirit) comes from within. Hope this helps.
---Linda_G. on 9/26/08


Linda: I agree with you in that the verses you have cited do indeed show that, as you put it, "what is spoken out of the mouth [reflects] what is believed in the heart". However, I would disagree with any notion that what is spoken out of the mouth has the power to create reality and bring things to pass (as WoF teaches). You did not state whether you held to this position or not, so please clarify if you could. The reason I ask is because I was unsure if your post was in response to the original blog question only or was in response to what I wrote on 08/26, which addresses the "words having creative power" issue.

Doug: "If Christ IS the very WORD of God, then one can deduce that the words we speak possess life and power inherant within themselves, and have correct definitions given to them by God."

How is such a deduction made? Our words are NOT in any way equal to God's words in terms of creative power, and there is NO evidence to suggest that ours possess such power to any degree.

"Used in accordence with their correct, God given definitions they produce a positive effect, however, if used according to their man created definitions (false) they create a negative effect."

Please provide biblical support for this notion.
---Bobby3 on 8/26/08


Doug-- I certainly agree that Christ was the very Word of God...but, I don't see how you jump from that fact to saying: that If Christ IS the very WORD of God, then one can deduce that the words we speak possess life and power inherent within themselves, and have correct definitions given to them by God. Guess, I'm sort of dense, but I don't see the connection.

I know a few words that I don't believe GOD created! And where is a dictionary of definitions intended by God? How do we know we're using words correctly? In English, or any living language, words change in meaning over time which is why most people today cannot instantly understand every word of the KJV. I don't believe words per se have any power except what we give to them.

Matthew 12:36: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." James 3:8: "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."

To answer this question correctly one must first address the question of where words originated from in the first place. How did Adam learn to speak? Through the use of words. Where did those words Adam used originate? God. God spoke BEFORE Adam was created, through the WORD (Christ). Christ IS the WORD of God, and He possesses Life, therefore IS alive. If Christ IS the very WORD of God, then one can deduce that the words we speak possess life and power inherant within themselves, and have correct definitions given to them by God. Used in accordence with their correct, God given definitions they produce a positive effect, however, if used according to their man created definitions (false) they create a negative effect.
---Doug on 8/25/08


Certainly some words SEEM to live forever. Most adults can instantly recall words they heard as a child or adolescent that still have power in their lives. Examples,"you're stupid", you'll never amount to anything", "you're fat".... or "you're smart, "you look pretty/handsome/cool", "I'm proud of you". Words like these last a lifetime, though time and experience can weaken them. A mere apology is seldom fully able to erase the hurtful ones.

I believe this is the meanung of Proverb 18 that "Death and life are in the power of the tongue". It's not merely trying to create something we want by speaking words of faith.
---Donna66 on 8/23/08


Do you believe the words we speak have power to effect us in body and spirit and do you think that our words live on forever?

I believe if you say something you regret, and apologize for it...and are forgiven...it is remembered no more....even as our own sin.

The Word of the Lord endures forever, but I've never heard that our words endure forever.

We are to be careful what we say...as that little member of a tongue can start fires from hell....gossip is murder.

So, yes, what we say does have power to hurt others...but will lies about you endure forever....NO. Is God's POWER to heal and expose lies have a Higher Power...absolutely.
---kathr4453 on 8/21/08


Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. The word trains us in righteousness. It is a double edged sword, cutting away what is not of God, both going and coming. The bible says that the washing of the washing of the water of the word, cleanses, from all iniquity. The tongue is a small member, but, can be set on fire of hell, when used against someone made in the image of God. The bible says that it is hard to tame.

Many people do not realize the power of the tonue, the words that we speak, and the impact that it has on our lives and the lives of those around us. In the book of Proverbs, we are told that words can bring life or death to us. " The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips. Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:23-24. Praying the word for the church is one way of expressing the kind of faith which pleases God. We can be sure we are praying God's will when we pray His word, and we have confidence that He does what we ask. (1 John 5:14,15. Keep the good work up Sister, and continue to let the Holy Spirit use you.

Different people have contacted me about the word of knowledge that Kay Arthur had in Atlanta, Georgia sometime in early July.
Yesterday while attending a prayer group, praying for our nation, when it came my time to pray I was led by the Holy Spirit to quoth the words from the Bible," Is anything to hard for the LORD?" Now of course these are not my words, but rather a direct quote from the Bible, and I believe that have great power!!!! This quote was like putting salve on the open wound.

The Word says: Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Another scripture says: a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in goblets of silver.Another: A soft answer turneth away wrath. Proverbs: as the swallow by wandering and the bird by flying, so a curse without cause does not come. Another: by your words shall you be justified and by your words shall you be condemned!
---Danelle on 6/20/08


The word of God conceived in the heart and spoken of the mouth is creative and healing power." For "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Therefore "Guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it flow the issues of life." "Out of the good treasures of a mans heart, he brings forth good things. Out of evil treasure, evil things." "If you have an evil thought, put your hand over your mouth." Seed time and harvest applies to words as well.

The tongue of the wise is health.

Let your speech be seasoned with salt.

Let no corrupt communication come out of your mouth...
(corrupt would also include anything that tends to corruption or decay, disagreement with God's word, for instance)

Grace is poured upon thy lips....

My heart is indicting a good matter, I speak of those things that I have made touching the King, my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Isaiah had a message of "woe, woe, woe" in his mouth until he saw the Lord high and lifted up and the train of His robe filling the temple. Then he got a new message. "Behold, a virgin shall conceive...."
Still talking like an earthy man? You need to see the Lord.

I would say that God, who is the Word, places a great deal of value on the spoken word. Sow to the flesh, reap corruption. Sow to the spirit, reap life everlasting. He gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater. The sower sows the word. How much clearer do you need it?

When God said, " Let there be light", in the original context He said, "Light in Me be",

I do believe that words which comes out of your mouth can effect you spiritually. But, I believe that is not the topic here. Certainly, if you are preaching the word of God with the annointing that God has placed on you, then it is powerful, and will last forever. Prophets in the Bible never became appreciated until after they were dead and in heaven with their Lord and Saviour, their God. I am sure there is a scripture to back me up. Sorry I don't have it with me. But you can hunt.

To Mike F.'s 5/19 post: Brother, you almost got it right about God's name in vain. Problem is: we don't USE His name in vain, we TAKE/RECEIVE/ACCEPT His name in vain. The 3rd Commandment is a warning not to become a Christian (take His name) to NO AFFECT. If our lives don't change after we take His name (1st it was Isrealite/now it's Christian), He will hold us responsible. We go to heaven no matter what we do (after we trust in Jesus), but we may be ashamed in heaven for our lack of works.

Of Course -- There is power in the spoken word. Look at Genesis 1. God spoke things into existence. We were made in His Image and likeness. There is power in the spoken word.

---kathr4453 on 5/25/08


Words are very powerful. It matters how and what we say .This is why we are told to call on the name of Jesus and so forth. There is power in His name and when we say His name the devil has to go and leave us alone.When we feel discouraged,down on our faith. We call on the name of Jesus, we speak the Word(scriptures) this gives energy and strength to our spirits.We become bold and able to stand up to the devil and hold our ground(resist temptations etc...)

The words we speak to someone can either bless them or curse them. If I spoke harshly to my children and that is all they hear, then I have cursed them and chances are they will do the same to others and their spouse when married. It is very, very important what we say and how we say it. The bible says every word that comes out of our mouth, we'll be judged by God.

I will say it again, " When someone says that what the word says isn't true, they are calling God a liar, plain and simple."

I'd never call God a liar, but I did find two contradictions in the bible. God didn't write the bible, people wrote the bible based on stories that were passed down from generation to generation...hence, the contradictions. We need something to use as a guidance, the bible is the nearest thing to the Lord's life that we have to rely on, therefore we read the bible in hopes we're getting some similance to the life and times of God, and to guide us in our daily lives to be as good and Godfearing as we can.

Yes, some may use it for selfish motives. But many times folks who think they are being selfish are totally misunderstanding and too darn stubborn to listen. Jesus talked about folks like that. Folk like that are like the Sadducee. They are just "sad, you see".

Cursing people with words, none effect for the Christian. Curses without cause have zero effect on the Christian.

That's why when someone speaks resurrection life over a dead person and God's not in it, the dead person does not come back to life.

If your Christianity consists of being prosperity conscious and your flow of money is dependent upon Jesus from whom all blessings flow - do you think you can "brainwash" God by repeating prayers for oceans of abundance and eventually He will answer because you've worn Him out with visualizations and repetitious prayers for abundance?

The law of supply and demand.
Demanding comes first with the metaphysical type of Christianity.
The request for money is spoken out over and over to come where it's needed in the form of prayer - humbly begging in Jesus' Name for all of your prosperity and blessings to flow and flow and flow. After all, even the poorest family can gather money together for a funeral.

Even speaking about it, makes me want to throw up.

"There is no way to drain the ocean of abundance dry. You are an abundance container and it can always be exchanged for a larger container." "I am open and receptive to all abundance in the Universe and it gives me expansion." I humbly beg you in Jesus Name.

The metaphysical may not be so blatantly mixed with this form of Christianity, but it is very, very close.

Rom. 10:9 - Our words have power if we truly believe with our heart what we are saying. "Life and death are in the power of the tongue." It all depends on "IF" you believe with your heart what you are saying. A lot of people say a lot of stuff in jest and don't mean it at all, those words have no power, but if you say some thing for or against some one or something and mean it in your heart, those words have power to bring life or death to who ever or whatever you are speaking.
