THE LIPS OF THE RIGHTEOUS KNOW WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE (by benaiah juma) (September 2017) (142).
Pro_10:32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
Righteous people are only those who have given their lives to Jesus Christ and have made a conscious decision to follow Christ. All others that do not follow Jesus Christ do not belong to the family of God and neither are they righteous. There is no righteousness and purity outside of the Lord Jesus Christ. When a person confesses his or her sins to God, he is washed by the precious blood of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ and he becomes a renewed creature in Christ Jesus. When the old man dies, the wicked heart dies and a heart of flesh is impacted on the convert.
The Lord Jesus Christ told us that out of the heart the mouth speaks. What you speak shows the condition of your heart. What you speak shows whether your heart is full of ignorance, wisdom, hatred, foolishness, anger, wickedness or righteousness.
The word of God tells us that the righteous know what is acceptable. This is because they have accepted Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the author of wisdom and once you accept Jesus Christ you automatically become wise because Jesus promised us that if we accept to open our hearts to him, He will come and dwell in our lives together with his father. Once Jesus Christ has entered you life, your conversation will end up representing purity or righteousness. Perverse mouth is an abomination to the just and to God. God hates a perverse mouth.
The righteous know what to speak and what to avoid. The righteous cannot talk perverse things even though they have been insulted or provoked to say something that displeases God. The righteous can weigh and know what is right to say in a particular situation. God hates perverse mouth and the righteous fear God and will not take the risk of offending God with their words.
On the contrary the wicked are the opposite. The wicked are filled up with folly and they utter foolish statements without discretion. The wicked are loaded up with evil spirits and lack the Holy Ghost, therefore don’t be surprised of the words which they will utter when provoked. When a righteous person argues with the wicked, you will notice their words show a clear cut distinction between light and darkness.
The wicked do not know what is acceptable before men and the Lord, they openly lay their wickedness and folly before men. When you rebuke a scorner you better back up a lot because you are going to hear everything under the sun. They will call you all sorts of names that you never even imagined a person can mention. Women who have not given their lives to Jesus Christ can be dangerous in this area; I have learnt that a lot of times over the years.
The words of the wicked show what kind of heart they possess. Out of the heart the mouth speaks. If you can’t see a person’s heart, just check what is coming out of their mouths. All people that have not given their lives to Jesus Christ are wicked. If you want to know they are wicked in their hearts, rebuke their sin and you will learn the hard way what kind of heart they possess.
That is the advantage of knowing God. People that know God, speak things that are acceptable before God, while those that have rejected Christ speak froward things. By the speech of a person you can discern which kingdom he or she belongs and what kind of heart he or she possesses. Righteous lips are of the righteous while wicked lips are of the devil and his children. Be blessed in Jesus name. Amen.
