“Is not MY word like a fire?” says the LORD, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29, NIV)
Words are powerful, and they can either destroy or heal a broken Soul. Did El Shaddai not say to heed HIS words and to live by HIS commandments and statues? If you don’t concede to live by the Holy Words, then they can be like fire in your bones when you hear the true Word of God. “Therefore thus says Adonai Elohei-Tzva’ot: (Lord God Almighty) because you speak this word, behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire and this people wood - and it will devour them. (Jer 5:15, TLV).”
Adonai is saying we must speak “truth”, or the rocks will cry out and speak the “truth” instead. In this passage, Adonai was speaking to Jeremiah the Prophet. Jeremiah was warning ethnic Israel to heed God’s Word; to repent and stop worshiping idols or Adonai would destroy the nation. We are the only living, breathing, beings on earth that has the capacity to make prudent and or un-prudent decisions.
We are the only beings, with the breath of LIFE given to us by Adonai through HIS breath of fire into our nostrils. Without this breath of life, there is no life in the body. The heart has to have blood pumping blood and water through its veins or we will die. The blood is the life of anything that is created by God.
