The make-up of every individual is a spirit, soul and body: these three are connected. What happens to one affects all. God has established His “perfect” way for us to (1) prosper on earth and (2) for our bodies to be restored to total health. His way is through the restoration and prosperity of our soul. (III John 2) This should be our focus. The Power to prosper our soul and bring health to our body is already contained in God’s living words. (Psalm 107:20)
God’s words are Thoughts from His Heart. He created Heaven and earth with words from His Mouth. (Hebrews 11:3) His spoken words always (1) flow, (2) work and (3) manifest. Therefore, to experience manifestations of a sound healthy body, great family relationships, and financial prosperity from a prosperous soul; the tongue must be trained to speak God’s words which flow, work and manifest them.
God’s words have been designed to work on every part of our being – spirit, soul and body. After hearing them, they first work on our spirit. They sanctify it from all evil thoughts and ways. This must be accomplished because the thoughts and ways of our heart determine the blessings that God releases into our lives. Jeremiah 17:10 declares, “I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” St. John 17:17 declares, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” From our heart, God’s words purify and restore our soul to wholeness. Evil thoughts and ways have scarred the soul where it literally cannot prosper. James 1:21-22 declare, “Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” Our body automatically receives the resulting Supernatural health of God. Proverbs 4:20-22 declare, “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” Then, we prosper in our professional endeavors. (III John 2)
Follow this carefully: our soul eats “fruit” from our heart that is framed by our tongue. It requires sweetness from our heart to be restored and prosper. This is why our tongue is so critically important to the process. God has provided both “restoration” and “healing” Power in sweetness. Specifically, this Power is contained in two distinct things: (l) specific words, which are Truth; and (2) specific tones of voice, which include sweet and pleasant. These two (Truth and tone) must be framed into fruit by our mouth and sent to our soul to prosper it. Proverbs 16:24 declares, “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones.” The Holy Spirit is to dwell inside our heart and train our mouth to speak in ways that send sweetness to our soul. Proverbs 16:23 declares, “The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips. Remember, daily speaking truth sweetly and pleasantly guarantees blessings in our lives. God Bless.
