John 1:1 says that; In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with Eli, and the WORD was Eli. Why is there such a emphasis on words? We where taught as children a rhyme that went, "Sticks and stone may break my bones but words can never hurt me." Well we today now realize that this very repeated childrens mantra is not true at all. Not only can words hurt us, they can get us killed. So why where we here in America not taught the seriousness of the POWER of words? I see that our peoples biggest stumbling block is our lack of proper positive communication between one another. Even i am guilty of this. The verbal abuse between Black men and women is at an all time high and it is a learned destructive behavior we have inherited from generations of listening to colonizers speak negatively and offensively about us as a race and as individuals that we now carry on against ourselves and our loved ones because we have pyschologically embraced all of the negative things that have been spoken about us. We are living in a time today when knowing who is ones enemy is not so easy to discern. Is verbal abuse as deadly and harmful as physical abuse? I think so. Should we view those who verbally abuse us as our enemies? I would love to have a 9Mind Sacred Sisterhood discussion on the power of propaganda and how WORDS are used as weapons that few of we recognize as such nor do we protect ourselves because often those using these deadly WORDS may look like ourselves or even be our own relatives and family members. The Adversary knew that the greatest weapon against a people or a nation was the weapon of WRONG WORDS and tragically the WAR we indigenous Hebrew Israelites find ourselves in is a war over THE WORDS.
