Good Morning. 

Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. (Genesis 4:8)

Instead of heeding God’s admonition to arrest the desire to commit sin, Cain gave in to it, calling Abel out into the field in order to commit murder. Like the hunters who would come later — Nimrod and Esau — he most likely used enticing words to lure his prey into the trap.

Seductive words have been the Adversary’s tactic since the beginning. Therefore we should not be surprised to see that those who fulfill his purposes against God’s people use them as well. Consider that a man who, as far as we know, never personally killed one Jew or loaded one Jew onto a freight car to be sent to their death is, nevertheless, held responsible for the deaths of over six million Jews. How did Hitler accomplish this? It was with words!

It is extremely important that we, as followers of Messiah, know the sound and tenor of His voice. He said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (Jn 10:27). We mustn’t be led astray by those who use “smooth words and flattering speech (to) deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:18). Our very lives may depend upon our ability to hear our Good Shepherd when He speaks.

Words are powerful, so powerful in fact, that we are told that death and life are in the power of the tongue. May our ears always be in sync with the One who speaks life. And may we always commit ourselves to speaking His Word so that others may find life.

Blessings and Shalom,
