They knew it was no use to try to outwit God so they concluded that their best hope was to devise ways to convince the human that they were alone, divided as it were, from those they called their own.
"Now we know," said the Devil, "that this creature loved by God, is susceptible to visions of their minds created by picture words: so we must find the words that alienate them from the support of their group; it is certain, as we have observed, that they are very influenced by words."
The room was filled with laughter, well, of the demon sort, and they put their heads together to come up with destructive words. All of them were talking at the same time, excited they certainly were to participate in forming this list of picture words, of the destructive kind.
One of the leaders thought the conferees should be advised that even though they would be delighted to be seen by human eyes, that it would be more effective in man's mind if they only whispered the destructive words of every kind. "Let them think it is their thought," the speaker said, "we will do our best work in man's head."
The Devil reminded them that it would be very good if they also whispered in the ears of those who should love the one chosen for destruction, then one by one the entire group could be brought to dysfunction.
"Get the husband," the Devil said, "to see his wife as silly putty, and his children as hopeless half wits exactly like their mother." Whisper to his wife that she could have done much better than the clueless man she wed, and then suggest to her that she is in the wrong mans bed."
They all squirmed with glee at the thoughts he proclaimed, and gave a cheer to approve the next thing that he said: "Oh this is such a winning plan, I know that it will conquer man, as long as from their eyes we stay hidden, they will do our bidding."
At the end of the conference they had a list devised and could not wait to whisper them into the ears of those whom they despised.
I have a partial list for you, if you care to read, and I suggest that you think about these words and then take heed to not use them to describe those whom you love, nor yet on any soul, for Jesus Christ Himself, this to us has told; "Do not speak ill of anyone, do not curse or judge; as My Followers you, all men must love."
Here is the partial list I mentioned: ugly duckling, stupid, clumsy, air head, mean, hateful, you'll never amount to anything, hopeless, black sheep of the family, too dumb to learn, fat, short, not smart, you never do anything right, I can't stand you, get out of my sight, Democrat, Republican, Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, po' folk, filthy rich, wrong side of the tracks; do you get it? They whisper anything to divide and to create thoughts of worthlessness and division to the soul inside.
If we give a voice to their whispers, we have willingly become a pawn of The Vocabulary of Hell, my Brothers and Sisters.
