Does Our Speech Please God?

The Fourth Commandment Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the Sabbath day, to sanctify it.  Six days you shall work and accomplish all your work; the seventh day is Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you shall not do any work–you, your son, your daughter, your slave, your maidservant, your animal, and your convert within your gates–for in six day the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and He rested the seventh day.  Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and sanctified it.

I came across this book online and thought interesting, so I borrowed a few portions to drive home my point and I hope you follow with me. 
Torah: Law Or Grace? Kingdom Principles For Kingdom Living.
354. You shall not work your Hebrew bondsman with slave labor —Leviticus 25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:
355. You shall not sell a Hebrew bondman in the manner of a slave —Leviticus 25:42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.
356. You shall not subjugate a Hebrew bondman through hard labor —Leviticus 25:43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.
357.  You may acquire foreign bondsmen to remain yours as an ancestral heritage —Leviticus 25:46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

358. You shall not allow a foreigner to mistreat a Hebrew bondsman —Leviticus 25:53 And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.
359. You shall make the second Passover offering on the 14th day of the second month (Pesach Sheni) —Numbers 9:11 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
360. You shall eat the Passover Sheni lamb with matzor and bitter herbs –Numbers 9:11
361. You shall not break a bone of the Passover Sheni lamb offering —Numbers 9:12 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.
362. You shall not leave over any of the Passover Sheni lamb offering until morning —Numbers 9:12
363. You shall offer to male lambs as and Elevation-Offering on your on each Sabbath (Mussaf)  —Numbers 28:9 And on the sabbath day two lambs of the first year without spot, and two tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, and the drink offering thereof:

My brothers and sisters within this Mystical Order it is very important for us to understand why we we are called to the service of The Most High God. The reasons why we have taken the Name of Christ or even the titles we carry. Unfortunately, many have the names and titles without any understanding or what they even mean. As we continue to look at the word maybe we will want to consider the why question and make a turn around.

Our actions start off as a thought.  The focus on the wrong words become things that are not  correct standing with God.  We know the intentions behind our words, while it seems to be less offensive and pleasant but the root and the intention is still out of order. We know in our hearts that we are going to destroy someone’s character so we engage our minds and anyone else we can find to help us. We find this morning that curse words include the ‘nice’ versions of the curse words.  Why not just say what you mean?  How about I am surprised by this–instead of those expletives that we may have used to use.  Well what is the big deal? We even use abbreviations for the curse words and we use or write them thinking no one will get the message.   

Our words have power and the intention behind them is very important, to those who do not know better it would appear that you are doing what the Bible instructs us not to do.  Saying things that are profane or obscene.  Some of us have gone as far as not to be one who uses curse words but enjoys entertainment that has it used for the sake of humor.  But that is not a big deal…oh but it is this exposure to this language will wear down our stance of what it right according to His instructions.  
We have to look again to find that the morally right things are not on the same side as the things that are correct with God.  Our Western/Greek mindset has placed the ideas of man, above the infallible word of God!  We can not use words of harm toward man–the image and likeness of Adonai doesn’t that transfer as disrespect to Elohim Himself?  Do parents approve of speaking ill about their children as if it was spoken to the parent themselves?  We have to truly look at what it is that we are preparing to speak!  We have many years of practice and experience with the wrong words, substitute words, out of order words, words in the wrong forum and the like.  We have to know the words we are using and the reason why we are using them.
