One of God’s primary gifts to man was the power of communication, wherein in the instance Adam was created, he possessed the ability to speak and comprehend the language God and the angels had spoken to him.
“I created man from invisible and from visible nature, of both are his death and life and image, he knows speech like some created thing, small in greatness and again great in smallness…”
– 2 Enoch 30:12
Yet, with the guile of the devil, and the influence of the fallen angels who taught man all forms of iniquity and sorcery (1 Enoch 9:5-6), this “gift of communication” has been misused since then. Up to this age, not only we take for granted this wonderful gift, we also use this power of communication in mockery and blasphemy of the Creator of divine and human languages who granted this gift to us.
The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God; the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1). Therefore every word our tongue utters must only be for the praises, glorification, prayers, blessings and respect to the Almighty Father, the beginning and the end of everything, and to propagate the mercy and love of God to one another, and the rewards for the righteous and punishment for the sinners.
“Because every breathing thing glorifies him, and every creature visible and invisible returns him praise.”
– 2 Enoch 51:6
Every word you use to mock or curse God’s children is likewise a mockery and a curse to God Himself. And every word of enchanting magic spells were taught to man by the fallen angels and are despised by God.
However, we may utter words pleasing to the ears, yet be careful on whom you speak them to and how you speak of them. For you might not be aware of it but it is sometimes sinful to speak of certain pleasing words to someone, such as saying “God-speed” or “God bless” to an evil doer because you immediately become a partaker of his evil deeds (2 John 10).
Be careful, my brethren, on how you make use of every word you say, for not all pleasing to the ears are a blessing, and all evil words you speak to others reach God as well and the devil: therefore it becomes a mockery to God and an empowerment of the devil.
Let us praise and glorify God the Almighty, for this gift and power of communication, who taught us how to speak to (and to understand) Him and one another, now and forever, Amen!
