I sometimes look at some people and wonder, preachers who are quick with their lips, and I ask myself, couldn’t he just hold his peace, than that you rush to say things that even an angel wouldn’t say?
Aren’t you ashamed when that you call prophecy misfires and never comes to fruition? I think people should be ashamed of themselves. If you make haste with your mouth, what you do is utter iniquity, and your tongue craftiness.
Job said, "My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit" Job 27:4. Wickedness is the quality of being morally wrong, and deceit is delivering fake news. As a believer your tongue shouldn’t say vile, empty or desolate words. Don’t utter/say what yourself would be ashamed of. Paul said, "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers" Ephesians 4:29. Are you a child of God? Minister grace to others, do not give a false sense of peace. Never speak any thing amiss/ with deceit against God, or in his name.
Learn to hold your tongues folks, to do so is not weakness but strength. Watch your mouth/tongue, so that you may not speak perverse things. May the Lord give you a tongue of the learned, that you may "know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary" Isaiah 50:4. It’s absurd that those weary are being destroyed from the pulpit or by fellow believers. Servants of God, keep your lips from speaking guile. Bless, and curse not, never raise false hopes in believers because, "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life" Proverbs 13:12. Learn to speak right, and think before opening your mouth; "whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8.
The reason for many false prophecies is because we want people to say we are great seers but sometimes "The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth," Job 29:10.
Apostle James said, "If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain" James 1:26. This is how sometimes we identify false prophets - they’re quick with their lips, speaking "evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves’ Jude 1:10. But you my friend, don’t be like them, instead guard your lips.
Apostle Peter also said, "If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen" 1 Peter 4:11. If still He hasn’t given you the ability - then hold your peace.
