*What Language Do You Speak Pt 3 *
*No Foolish Talking, No Jesting *
Bible verse: Ephesians 5:4 “Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.”
Few years ago something unusual crept into the church of God. Comedians were being invited to minister in churches on the altar of God. They will be “jesting” with the Word of God, or mimic some events in the House of God. However, thanks be to God that our Spiritual Fathers in the faith were quick to stop such comedians coming to the altar of Christ.
Our Bible verse today in Ephesians 5:4, is about not allowing “foolish talking nor jesting”, as believers in Christ Jesus. These are worldly languages and not heavenly languages.
Also we must not allow “swearing words” which are “foolish talking “to proceed out of our mouth. Can I encourage you reading this devotional today that when you become Born Again, old things must pass away including swearing words. Strive to be baptised in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues, then gradually the worldly languages will fade away, you will learn and be fluent in Heavenly languages. “Nevertheless at thy word” Luke 5:5b.
Father God, I ask and receive forgiveness from every way I have given way to Foolish talking and jesting. From today, I receive fresh baptism of the Holy Ghost to speak heavenly languages in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
