Gossip is a deadly sin, if you seek out daily news it is laced with gossip. You must be careful, because once bitten by it, It can affect the way you think and it can also have you believing false things about someone, who is totally innocent.
This is why we must be careful and walk in the spirit and not the flesh. Most of the Gossip that we are exposed to on a daily basis is called news.
Some of it is true but it is infused with untruths just to keep you interested, and fearful.
Similar to what the serpent did to Eve in the Garden of Eden and when she took heed and the end result of being bitten by this venom was deadly. We should learn from what happened to Adam and Eve. pay attention to what the serpent told her and how she believed him and compare it to the news you receive everyday.
Genesis 3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
As you can see the serpent not only caused Eve to sin, Adam sinned as well, the serpent’s venom was deadly and contagious. One person picked up the gossip against Yahuah (God) and the other person spread it and then the venom set in to destroy them both.
Not only that, The serpent tricked them out of their home in paradise and the deadly venom the serpent spewed out to them by his lies ended in death.
This is why we must guard what we are listening to and digesting. Words cause you to take actions when believed.
When a venomous word is given and believed it has deadly results and many who are feeding the gossip mill and calling it news, have destroyed many lives with their venomous tongue.
When the Torah (Holy Bible) speaks of life and death are in the power of the tongue, it is speaking the truth many lives have been destroyed because of the carelessness and falsehoods put out by individuals who have no rule over their tongue.
This happens because they are obsessed with the things of the flesh (The World) and not the things of the Holy Spirit *Ruach Of Yah (God).
You are a result of what you are digesting spiritually. Your Spiritual man eats too. and if that diet is junk food, you are in danger of losing your very soul. Not just in the physical sense do you eat, but did you know that your spiritual man eat too?
Remember our creator told us these words.
Not only guard the physical nutrition you receive, but also guard the spiritual nutrition you receive. The inward digestion is more important than the outward digestion. If the Tv or computer give you poor nutrition for your spirit turn it off and feed on The Word of Yah (God).
Do not indulge or concentrate on Ungodly things because if you eat junk food, one good piece of juicy gossip, and not eat the bread of the Word of Yah (God) When he appears you will appear to him as the food you have taken in.
He can see right through all of us, You will appear to him in a digested food state, in other words you will appear as you have eaten spiritually. A good apple or a bad apple and both will be judged and put in their proper places
The good will continue to flourish on the tree of life the bad will be tossed in the fire and purified forever. The worms will not cease consuming rotten fruits. As we have learned in the previous scriptures from the lesson of Adam and Eve who fell because of the serpents lies. We must separate ourselves from the serpents lies, or be consumed by the lies he tells and perish with those lies with the bad fruit that will be tossed away in the fire.
The lies he told Eve ended in physical death because of the sin of eating fruit that Yah (God) told them not to eat. It was not so much that the fruit was bad, it was the disobedience of his word that caused this death. The serpent used gossip to cause Eve to fall.
Not only did they die physically they were spiritually separated as well because after this sin they were separated from their fellowship with Yah (God) because he came daily to talk to them, and to fellowship with them and they gave ear to gossip.
It influenced their actions causing them to doubt the one who created them, leading to doubt, disobedience and sin.
We all have to realize that without faith it is impossible to please Yah (God). They found out the hard way that he loved them and he was telling them the truth.
It was the serpent who was the liar, who hated them and who sought to do harm to them not their creator. He looked harmless at first.
This was the real appearance of his look toward Adam and Eve
After the deception they seen his true colors. it was too late and they had to suffer the consequences from their careless actions after they were warned.
Dear friend do not let this be you.
Apply this lesson to your own life daily. We all must make these decisions before he comes to judge this world, because when he comes it will be too late to change. if gossip is happening to you unjustly I want you to stay encouraged and know that the righteous judge is at the door and vengence is his he will repay those who hurt you. Let him fight for you all you have to do is pray to him he hears you when you seek him with all of your heart. Love to you and all who visit this blog and to your families
