James 2:13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, “gives birth to death.”
Faith without works is already dead. (James 3:16).
As observed in these two verses, it is evident that our actions and choices can produce death itself. Likewise, in as much as we can produce death in the opposite, produce Life also. This is notable words to consider: “Giving birth to death”. We can come to the ultimatum that birthing is a process that is carried in time until it has attained its full course aptly: “Death”.
You might sin today, and not repent, and I can assure you, in due time you shall receive the due reward of your evil deeds. Here is a established time frame factor involved before giving birth to “DEATH”, for the sin to complete its full course.
We can give birth to two realities. Let’s deal with the birth of Death:
BIRTH OF DEATH – (SIN)
Let me hit the first note here and state that God does not sin and never instigated it, He is Holy. It was the introduction of rebellion against the Lord’s command that Adam and Eve landed us where we are today.
Never the less, there is forgiveness for sin, this does not mean you are rendered without penalty. You will pay a dear price for your sin. For is it not recorded that even HE (Jesus The Christ) learned obedience from the things He suffered.
If our Lord was without exempt in this regard, how the more should we as the building blocks of the church be cautious in the testing of our very faith, and being disciplined by the Father. For look, if the Father does not discipline us, we are illegitimate children.
But it is for this very reason that we are disciplined, because He loves us! He knows full well the full course of sin and its ultimate penalty, in namely Hell. In so much that he offered up His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ) for our trespasses. In as much as our fleshly deeds of sin has effect, how much the more in giving birth to LIFE would not only affect your life but dually those around you!
BIRTH OF LIFE – (BORN AGAIN)
The only possible means for us in “Giving birth to Life“, is when you are BORN AGAIN of and by baptism in the Holy Spirit, where you would then become instrumental in this cause, of bringing the lost to repentance, healing the sick and casting out demons.
As a good Word of Faith, empowered the Holy Spirit, produces Life, in like manner does an evil tongue corrupt and produce death. The power of your tongue has the ability to create life or very well being such a small rudder, steer you and your family, into dry places.
The power of the spoken word over your own, and others lives, carries tremendous POWER. The confession of the tongue can either produce LIFE or DEATH. The imagination of the Heart might be a fount springing up in us as a well of life giving water, or to the opposite, salty water, upsetting and that which is distasteful .
Set a guard before your tongue, speak life, and not death words. In as much as your evil tongue can produce demonic empowerment, which in turn, affects the realm of the spirit, so in same manner, does speaking Faith words to others, being fully empowered by the Holy Ghost, render Life and that more in abundance.
We are here to be bearers of the Light, shall we hide the lamp under a bush? No! We lift it high for all the world to see. We are the salt in the earth, but when the salt has lost its saltiness, there is therefore no more further use for it other being trampled underfoot.
Your life actions has POWER to bring Life to a very sad and broken world. I want to challenge you. Test your tongue and the fruit it will produce. Speaks words of Life and Hope…
