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
When love enters into you
the language of judgement
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.
