The ministry of Jesus as one of obedience, and the use of cursing and foul language in the Bible are topics, today.  Also, there is more on why believers fear death.  The “Yahoo! Answers” fighter using the ID “Randy” (Level 1 with 81 points, a member since September 07, 2014) posted the following:

 

If Jesus can say damn can jesus say **** if he wants to? 

if not then what scripture in the original bible divides his speech his heart and his spirit? cursing swearing and being filthy and froward are three different things from saying damn. or what is technically considered cussing. unless you claim god a liar for cussing and king david. but they werent filthy just truthful.

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Why Believers Fear (09/09/2014)—(5.)  Although believers are accounted as “new creatures,” we will continue to have many traits that are finite and human until the appearing of Christ to harvest the earth.  Thus, it is not that we have not been blessed by GOD, it is that we fail to grasp the enormous measure of our blessings.  Many believers are concerned at having to continue in the flesh, and, despite their baptism and redemption, having to reside upon the earth as imperfect until the Advent.  Such believers correctly and soberly confess themselves capable of backsliding; and acknowledge the truth that there is a chance a person could lose their salvation before their death, and the return of Jesus.  Unintentionally and unconsciously, over and over mankind exalts carnal things, material things, simple things.  In humility and trust, believers do not fear that the Father or Son will betray, deny, and destroy them—GOD will not go back on his word.  Instead, in addition to the finality and irreversible aspect of death, dying appears fearful and threatening because believers continue to be stirred by realizing it is only our own nature, our own persistent desires, our un-confessed sins, and our disguised and hidden weaknesses that can separate us as the created from the Creator.  See again Psalms 27:  1, Isaiah 57:  1-21, Luke 12:  4-5 and Romans 13:  7-8, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:  But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.  Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.  Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.  Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?  Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.  Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.  But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.  This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  (James 3:  7-17, KJV)

“Randy”, here are a few points important to those who rely upon the Gospel, and word of GOD spoken by Jesus for redemption and salvation from sin:

(1.)  Jesus did not appear in the earth as an expression of curiosity, self-promotion, or self-will.  Jesus was sent to further make known and visible (we say, to reveal) the fullness of divinity we refer to as “the GODhead.”  Jesus operated in the occupations of messenger, minister, prophet (we say, spokesperson), and servant.  Therefore, he did not speak according to his own personal agenda and private opinions so much as he proclaimed doctrines, promises, and teachings in obedience to the Father.

(2.)  As one in flesh and bone, Jesus was human in form.  Jesus was divine in spirit, for he was born and developed from the same sacred substance that was breathed into Adam at Creation.  Inseparable aspects from the makeup of GOD were imparted to Adam and to Christ, who is called the “Second Adam.”  Included were faith, forbearance, forgiveness, holiness, joy, longsuffering, love, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

(3.)  As an organ or member of ones body, the tongue must be guided through ones Spirit.  Where sin rules, the intent, purpose, and thoughts of men are more easily expressed by cheap talk, coarseness, gossip, lies, malice, obscenity, threats, violence, and vulgarity.  The high purposes of GOD are addressed through speech that comforts, encourages, explains, heals, and urges to positive action.  While most of mankind’s lowest and meanest attitudes and behaviors are the focus of salvation, none have part in the process of salvation.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  In the same way Jesus did not speak of himself (i.e., on his own authority; without permission), the Spirit imparted to mankind on behalf of Jesus (we say, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth) does not speak of himself, and must operate in accordance with the will and way of Jesus.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
