A CHANGE OF LANGUAGE


A CHANGE OF LANGUAGE (Luke 1: 5-25; 57-64)

Love has a different language than fear.

Sonship has a different speech

than orphanhood.

When love enters into you

the language of judgement

becomes silent

and the language of love

gains a voice.


Sonship equips you with a new speech,

a speech that speaks forth life and love.

A new positive, hope-filled language.


You should not be afraid

if you have nothing to say for a while.

Zachariah, the father of John the Baptist,

experienced this transition of speech.

He was struck dumb for a period

until the transition

from unbelief to prophetic alignment took place.

His final words before the angel touched him

was to give a judgement of negativity,

“How shall I know this?

For I am an old man

and my wife is advanced in years.”


Because he didn't see things

how God sees them

he lost his ability to speak.


When he became aligned

with the reality of heaven

his tongue was loosed.

He quelled the clamour of debate

about the name of the child

by writing on a tablet,

“His name is John.”


In that time of dumbness,

he heard the words of life in heaven.

He saw the prophetic reality

and immediately his tongue was loosed.

He went from questioning unbelief

to blessing God.


If you have a language of fear and judgement

That utters orphan-ese

you will be made dumb,

until you perceive a different reality.

Then you will get your speech back.
