Prayer and Authority (19) Idle Words

The other side of submission is that we should be very careful when speaking to others about people who have submitted to them. If people with authority speak negative words, about a person who has submitted to, they give evil powers permission to attack the person.

By agreeing with the lies of the enemy, Christian leaders can give power. If the leader says to his wife, “Bill has always been rebellious against authority, and he always will be”, his words give a spirit of rebellion permission to attack the person. If an elder says to a friend, “John is liar”, this allows a gives a lying spirit to attack John.

Jesus warned that we will have to give account for our idle words.

I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken (Mat 12:36).
Careless words are serious, because they are permissions. Many Christian leaders, elders and parents will be embarrassed on that day, when they realise the effect of they casual words they spoke about those who were submitted to them. They will be shocked when they see how evil spirits used their words as permission to attack someone who trusted them.
