Death and life are in the power of the tongue… (Proverbs 18:21).
God spoke creation into being through words. When He said, “Let there be light,” light came into being (Genesis 1:3). Most of Genesis chapter one is about God speaking creation into being. Have you ever wondered why God had to “talk” to bring forth these things instead of making them? It’s because by talking, you create a sound code. Speech creates sound waves, and the original source material for creation is sound, because that’s the energy produced by words. Sound code therefore, is the instruction, meaning, account, or information embedded in a sound wave. Sometime ago, a scientist performed an experiment to ascertain the effect of words on water. He had water in different jars and would talk to the different containers of water. After a long while, each of them formed crystals. The ones he talked nicely to formed beautiful crystals. He spoke words of love: “You’re wonderful; you’re beautiful; you’re full of love”; and beautiful crystals resulted.
However, the jars he spoke harshly to, saying, “You’re ugly, terrible, bad; I hate you,” formed very poor, ugly-looking crystals; deformed crystals. What then is the moral behind this? The human body is seventy per cent water. That means more than two thirds of your physical body is water. Therefore, speaking negative words to yourself results in the deformity of the water crystals in your body; deformed crystals resulting from deformed minds. Many have talked themselves to death without knowing it.
Refuse to speak negatively or ugly about yourself; many think it’s “fashionable” to do so, and that’s sad. They pick lots of negative communication from their environment, workplace, neighbourhood, etc., and take them home. Like some who, referring to their job, will say, “This thing is killing me”; or the mother who keeps saying, “These children are killing me,” and thinks it doesn’t matter; it does! They’re destroying the water crystals in their bodies, because those crystals respond to words. Speak life to your body, your environment, family and to your world!
