Are you speaking with the old tongue (slave language) or the new tongue (Holy Nation, Kingdom of God, redeemed child of God)?
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (language, tongue, attitude). Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Slave language is poisonous and intends to kill others and exalt you. You want to be worshipped and liked by others. You want to please others. When you carry rejection, hurt, self-pity, blame, greed, selfish desire, false humility, pride, unforgiveness or envy, you will begin speaking the slave language. The tone of the slave language is easily recognizable. Listen to yourself to determine if you are speaking with a slave tongue (language) or with a new tongue given by God through your redeemed life.
You are born as a slave because of your ancestors’ sin. Your native and natural language is as a slave. The Israelites were freed from 400 years of slavery. The angels of the Lord flapped their wings and parted the Red Sea for the Israelites to walk across dry land into freedom (salvation). Yet they maintained the same language of complaining and whining. They wanted to go back to Egypt.
The Israelites came out of slavery. But like the Israelites, when you came out of slavery to sin and received salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ, you still spoke the slave language. God gives you a new tongue and attitude which HE perfects in the desert through problems, trials and tests to determine what is in your heart and mind.
It is when you renew your mind and count it pure joy as you persevere through trials, test and problems that your attitude changes along with your language. When praise and worship become more important than complaining, blaming, and criticizing, the angels of the Lord flap their wings to part the Jordan River for you to enter the Promised Land. You have salvation by crossing the Red Sea into the desert. Next comes the crossing of the Jordan River into the Promised Land through the renewing of your mind and the transformed life in Christ Jesus. As you have victory over fear, anger, lust, greed, pride, selfish desire, unforgiveness, hurt, revenge, regret, self-pity, rejection, loneliness, and sin, the parting of the Jordan River into the Promised Land will be evident in your language and attitude.
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
