The words we speak are like sword, once they drop, there must be an impact.

In the previous part of this message, we have been able to established that there is a need to master the What, When and how of speech.

We also established that a man who refuses to bridle his tongue would be bridled by his tongue.

What more can be said of a man who is force to be silenced after he refuses to be silent?

The self analysis questions for today are;

What do I speak?

When do I speak them?

How should I speak them?

To whom am I speaking them to?

From who am I receiving the words?

Do my words equate life or death?

Are they Pillars or Caterpillar?

See what this scripture says ;Colossians 4:6 "Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man".

There is an answer to every question.

There is an answer to every need that demand us to speak but if our speech is graceless, the answer will be nothing but such that keep away the good side of speech.

Follow me today as we look at the Who, To Whom and the where of speech.

1. From who of a speech: The major issue with the present generation is that many just want to be known for numerous talks. 

Many don't even care if what is being said is the truth or not. Inasmuch as it meet up with the immediate demands of their heart, they are good to go.

From who?

Those words you have been speaking, did they in anyway portray the image of God?. 

Some Ministers of God has got it wrong so much that they discard what the Spirit is bringing to them by making use of the ones they think would keep their congregation.

Is it not blessed to lose a congregation than a generation which the message is meant to be delivered to?

As a prophet, you said "God said" 

Did he actually said it? or you just feel like "That is what is best for the trend"

No matter how powerful a message or word may be, if it is not coming from God, it will never make impact.

2 Samuel 23:2 "The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue."

Whose words are in your tongue?

2. To whom of Speech: It is not all about receiving instructions or words to speak but there must be certain people who are meant to receive them.

Moses stood as intermediary between God and Aron. He was the one receiving the words and instructions directly but Aaron was the one passing it across to the Israelites.

When God said to Jonah "Arise and go to Nineveh" (Jonah 1:2) and Jonah in his own self will decide to abscond to somewhere else, what happened to him? Not good to be told!

The truth remains that even if his journey eventually become successful, his words to the set of people he met at the place he was running to will never be relevant.

God is asking you to deliver some messages but who exactly are you to deliver them to?

Is it to a single person or congregation of men?

3. The where of speech: The mastering of the Why, What, How, To who, From who of a speech would be incomplete without the where of it.

Esther was meant to go and speak with the King who was her husband concerning a pertinent issue but the where of it brought her fears.

So much that it was acknowledged that anyone who dare venture into the King's Chamberlain without a formal approval would be punished.

She was sore afraid to the extent that she was as the point of refusing the appointment. it made her sent words back to her uncle regarding the outcome of what she was ask to do. (Esther 4:11).

You as a child want to speak with your parents, where do you think is best to speak with them?

You want to speak to a particular set of people, where do you speak them?

There are some words which are meant to be in the closet not in open. A man who understands this will be free from condemnation.

His words are renewed within you. Amen!

Thanks for engaging.

God bless you.
