Language of Canaan…

The language of Canaan, doesn’t the very name sound wonderful? I want to learn this language more than any other. This is the language of heaven, the name Canaan, refers to the Promised Land – the one that is to come. Only those who are saved by the blood of the Lamb and have accepted Jesus can talk this pure language. The question is though; can we prepare and start talking it now?

I believe that we can start right now to speak heavenly language. We can do this by watching what we say, but you may ask how do I do this? Good question, hopefully I can answer it for you. =)

When we say things that are mean or cutting down to someone it can hurt that person’s feelings. By watching what we say to others is one way we can speak that language. When we say kind things and kind words and compliment people, it not only makes that person feel good but it makes us feel a lot better as well.

But there is more to it than by just saying kind words. We must not speak vulgar words, or in other words, swear words; but there is also something else we should watch as well. We should be careful and not use slang words as well. We must say what we mean and use words properly. This is heavenly language… now; you may ask what do you mean by slang words? I will do my best at answering that.

Lots of people use words very loosely now-a-days, saying things like ‘yo, dude, cool, totally, so on and so forth.  These words are some of the slang words that are used today. I try and imagine if Jesus or the angels would speak that way to each other. For me personally I can’t imagine the angels saying to each other, “Dude that is so totally cool!” Can you?

By using words properly we are speaking heavenly language, instead of using cool as meaning you like it, you could just say, “I really like that!” Or, “Wow, that is really something else!”

At first it might be really hard, and you will catch yourself saying those words, because it is a habit and you are used to it. I remember when I first learned that those words where slang, it was really hard to stop saying them, but I paid attention and had other people who would tell me, hey you said it, so that I could make sure that I wouldn’t say it anymore. I realized that I wanted to speak heavenly language, and now hearing other people say those words it just seems strange. =)

Read what a well-known author has to say about this.

Weed out Every Careless Word—Remember that by your words you shall be justified, and by your words condemned. The tongue needs bridling. The words you speak are seeds sown, which produce fruit either good or evil. Now is your sowing time.

The good man, from the good treasure of the heart, bringeth forth good things. Why? Because Christ is an abiding presence in the soul. The sanctifying truth is a treasure-house of wisdom to all who practice the truth. As a living spring it is springing up unto everlasting life. The one who has not Christ abiding in his heart will indulge in cheap talk, exaggerated statements, that make mischief. The tongue that utters perverse things, common things, slang phrases, that tongue needs to be treated with the hot coals of juniper.—MS 17, 1895.

At times the follower of Christ may by circumstances be compelled to witness scenes of unholy pleasure, but it is with a sorrowful heart. The language is not the language of Canaan, and the child of God will never choose such associations. When he is necessarily brought into society that he does not choose, let him lean upon God, and the Lord will preserve him. But he is not to sacrifice his principles in any case, whatever the temptation. {2SM 127.1}

The Language of Canaan—We are to be witnesses for Christ; and this we shall be when we grow up daily into the full stature of men and women in Christ. It is our privilege to grow more and more like Him every day. Then we shall acquire the power to express our love for Him in higher, purer speech, and our ideas will enlarge and deepen, and our judgment become more sound and trustworthy, while our testimony will have more of life and assurance. We are not to cultivate the language of the earthy, and be so familiar with the conversation of men, that the language of Canaan will be new and unfamiliar to us.—Sons and Daughters of God, 72

Your words are to be an expression of His sympathy. You are to speak the language of Canaan. You are no more of the world. You have come out from the world, and you are to be separate from its methods and practices. In word and action you are to reveal God’s purposes of love. {TDG 270.3}

Students, educate yourselves to speak in the language of Canaan, the language spoken in the heavenly school by the members of the royal family. Sternly determine to put away all foolish talking and jesting, all selfish amusements. By faith grasp God’s promises, and determine that you will be Christians here below, while preparing for translation. {RH August 27, 1903, par. 21}

I want to learn more and more each day to speak in that heavenly language, don’t you?

I want to go wherever my Saviour leads me, and want to do what He tells me. I am serving the Lord wherever He calls me to go. I laugh and smile very easily, and love to meet new people! The Lord has given me the talent of singing, and playing the flute. I love to play songs which glorify my Savior. A few of my other favorite things I like to do is; reading the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy, cooking, knitting, and I love to witness and share about Jesus! My character is moldable for His hands! If I don't get to meet you here on this earth, meet me in the heavenly kingdom!
