~~ Whose Word is in your mouth? ~~ By: Jo Smith — July 26, 2006
De 18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. De 18:14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
De 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
De 18:16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. 18:17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
De 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. De 18:19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
De 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Notice verse 18. God promised to raise up a prophet from among their brethren, which means he would be a man just like them. He would be from among these Jewish people. He will be a prophet like unto Moses. But what is so significant about this prophet? God said, I WILL PUT MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH.
So, who is this speaking of? Let the Word of God reveal it to you:
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
Now see that it is verified here in John 14, that God the Father put these words into Jesus’ mouth. So it was Jesus whom Moses prophesied would come and have God’s Word in his mouth. This is how Jesus could speak as if it were God himself speaking, for He knew that it was God’s Word He was speaking. He said I speak not of myself, meaning not from my own thoughts.
So now, watch this: Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
See here that Peter told the people to hearken to MY WORDS. So how could Peter say hearken to MY WORDS? Because he knew, just as Jesus had known, that he was speaking God’s Word. He knew that Jesus had spoken God’s Word. He knew that God had put HIS words into the mouth of Jesus. He knew that he was also speaking the same Words which came out of the mouth of Jesus. So he knew he could say the same thing: the words I speak are NOT mine, but the Lord’s who sent me.
These same words are SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE. They are the Words of God, which He put into the mouth of Jesus to give to us. Peter then had these same Words of God in his mouth. He spoke only the true Word of God.
John 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
Now this proves that it was Jesus whom Moses spoke of in the law and the prophets.
So we see then that Peter could say the same thing which Jesus said, the words I speak are not mine, but the one who sent me. We find that Paul said he taught them only what was written in the law and prophets. So Paul was also speaking these same words of God.
All the prophets said this is the Word of the LORD. John said the revelation of Jesus was given to him by God. He said it was a revelation given to Jesus by God. So I am asking each one who reads this message, check to see whose words are you speaking? Who put their words into your mouth? If it is not the truth which is WRITTEN in God’s Word, then it is Satan’s words you are speaking and believing. Can you truly say, the words I speak are not mine, but the Lord’s who sent me? If not, then you need to stop speaking, pray and allow God to put his words into your heart.
Each message I write or speak, I always pray first for God to put his words into my mouth and heart and let it be just exactly as He would speak it. I fully believe He does just this.
If I cannot go to the Word of God and READ you what I am saying, then it is not God’s Word, for if it is God’s Word, it will be WRITTEN in His Book.
Which Book can you place your full confidence into and say, this is the Word of God? If you do not have a Written Word, which you can call the absolute truth of God, then you have nothing with which to prove a thing. Then you do not even know yourself if it is true or not.
God said prove all things and hold fast to that which is good. Only the truth is good. The truth is Written in God’s Book. Do you have God’s Book? If not, then how can you expect to ever know any truth? If you think that the Book you read has errors in it, is full of contradictions, then you have absolutely nothing in which you can place your faith. You cannot possibly even know any truth. If even one thing you say or believe crosses even one verse of Scripture, then know that it is wrong. You have the wrong interpretation of that verse. If it is truly God’s Word, then it cannot have error in it. Do you really think the people of today, who do not know the original languages, know more about what is true than the men who DID know both languages and DID have the anointing of God to rightly interpret the Word? If you cannot believe that God watched over His own Word and gave it to us perfect, then you are denying the true Power of God.
So check out every doctrine you believe. Is it God’s Word, did God put this into your mouth and mind, or did some church, some preacher, some theologian or scholar put these things into your mouth? Whose Word are you speaking? Whose Word do you believe? It is of utmost importance that you get this straight. Your eternal life depends upon believing the TRUTH. It depends upon loving and obeying the TRUTH. If you do not have the truth, then how can you know and love and obey the TRUTH?
I pray this will help someone to check your heart, your beliefs, and find the real truth. If not, then you will die believing a lie and be damned. Is it WRITTEN? In what Book? Do you have a Book you can put your full faith in? If not, you need to seek God while He may be found.
