Who Can Tame The Tongue? | An Unruly Evil | Video

“Well again the Lord loves us. He is faithful and God gives us the words of eternal life. And we can eat of those words, it is our spiritual manna, and we can be sustained and kept. Prepared ready for the Kingdom of God by the Word that He keeps us while still in this world. I want to talk on quite a controversial subject today, one that affects us all, but something that is needful that I believe need to be addressed. ‘ Who Can Tame The Tongue. ‘

And I sensed strongly last week in our time of prayer, intercession that we did as an assembly that God began to speak this to me. And I believe this is a word in season and very important for us and hopefully for the Body of Christ wherever this message goes to around the world.
But firstly let’s thank God for His blessing on His Word. Lord we thank you that it is a divine appointment when we’re always brought together in your presence. You desire to reveal yourself and speak to us. And so we ask Lord in your mercy and grace speak to us now. Not just in the mind -- the intellect but above all in the heart we ask now in Jesus name.


‘Who Can Tame The Tongue ?’… and that is what we’re going to look at today. And we’re going to base this as you’re probably aware now from James chapter 3 verses 1 to 12. I first want to start with this and then we’ll move on to where Christ Himself raised this with regard to the tongue -- the sinning of the tongue -- what the tongue can produce… …”

Who Can Tame The Tongue?

James 3:1-12 (KJV)

My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

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.

Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

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.

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

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.
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: 

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
