        or his connections.
   Psa 12:1-4 …Help, YHVH, for the godly man ceases; for the faithful

  the devil.
           The Root Of The Problem
                  The Heart
   Matt 12:34-35 For out of the abundance of the heart
    the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good

    evil man out of the evil treasure brings out evil things.
   Matt 15:18-19 “But what comes out of the mouth
    comes from the heart, and these defile the man. “For
    out of the heart come forth wicked reasonings,
    murders, adulteries, whorings, thefts, false
    witnessings, slanders.
   Pro 4:23-24 Guard your heart with all diligence; for out
    of it are the issues of life. Put away from you a wicked
    mouth, and devious lips put far from you.
   Heb 12:15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace
    of YHVH, that no root of bitterness springing up causes
    trouble, by which many become defiled,
                   The Cure
             Admit Your Condition
   Isa 6:5-7 So I said, "Oh, no! I'm doomed. Every
    word that passes through my lips is sinful. I live
    among people with sinful lips. I have seen the
    king, YHVH of Armies!" 6 And one of the seraphim
    flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he
    had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he
    touched my mouth with it, and said, “See, this has
    touched your lips; your crookedness is taken away,
    and your sin is covered.”
                  The Cure
         Three Steps To Deliverance
   1Jn 1:7-10 but if we walk in the light as He Himself is
    in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and
    the blood of Yeshua His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8
    If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves,
    and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He
    is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to
    cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we
    have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is
    not in us.
   Rom 6:12-14 Therefore do not let sin reign in your
    mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. Do not
    yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness
    to sin, but yield yourselves to God, as one alive from
    the dead, and your members as instruments of
    righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion
    over you, for you are not under the Law, but under
             Why Did God
       Give Us Tongues Anyway?
 Psa 16:8-9 I have set YHVH always before me; for
  He is at my right hand: I shall not be shaken. So
  my heart is glad, and MY GLORY rejoices; my flesh
  shall also rest in hope.
 Act 2:25-26 "For daveed says of him, „I saw YHVH
  always before me; for he is at my right hand, that I
  may not be shaken. Because of this my heart was
  glad and MY TONGUE rejoices; moreover my flesh
  will also dwell in hope”
 Rom 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the
  glory of God,
               What Causes Our
              Tongues To Rejoice?
   James 3:6 The tongue is that kind of flame. It is a
    world of evil among the parts of our bodies, and it
    completely contaminates our bodies. The tongue sets
    our lives on fire, and is itself set on fire from hell.
   Acts 2:1-4 And in the fulfilling of the day of Shavuot,
    they were all together at the same place. 2 And
    suddenly there came from Heaven a noise like a violent,
    rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they
    were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues,
    as it were, of fire, distributing themselves, and they
    rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled
    with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other
    languages, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
          The Importance Of Our
   Rom 10:8-10 But what does it say? “The
    word is near you, in your mouth and in your
    heart” – that is, the word of belief which
    we are proclaiming: 9 That if you confess
    with your mouth Adonai Yeshua and believe
    in your heart that YHVH has raised Him
    from the dead, you shall be saved. 10 For
    with the heart one believes unto
    righteousness, and one confesses with the
    mouth, and so is saved.
            The Importance Of Our
   Heb 3:1 Therefore, set-apart brothers, partakers of the
    heavenly calling, closely consider the Emissary and
    High Priest of our confession, Messiah Yeshua,

    who has passed through the heavens, Yeshua the Son
    of YHVH, let us hold fast our confession.
   Heb 10:21-23 and having a High Priest over the House
    of YHVH, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in
    completeness of belief, having our hearts sprinkled
    from a wicked conscience and our bodies washed with
    clean water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our
    expectation without yielding, for He who promised is
