The Snare Of The Mouth


by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Recently, I was reading (Proverbs 6:2)”Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art caught by the words of your mouth.” The word snare means entrapped or barbed. Then the Holy Spirit began to show me some words of entrapment (inner vows) in my heart. One was, “here we go again.”

The Lord said, “You’re saying this out of frustration and hurt because of a cycle or reoccurring problem of something undesired.” This is an inner vow or word of entrapment because you aren’t stopping the cycle but welcoming and continuing the cycle. Instead, you should say, “Lord, my life, my times are in your hands and I speak death to every cycle that is not a blessing in my life.” This will be the end of this curse and a new beginning.

Secondly, “Something is wrong with me”. He pointed out how this was an inner vow or word of entrapment. He said, “You are speaking this out of rejection from a person(s). You need to say, “I am wonderfully and fearfully made in the image and likeness of God. When he created me, he did it right. I am preserved, undamaged, intact, lacking nothing.”

Lastly, “I’m just anointed for mess, hurt, and abuse”. He pointed out, “This is not your portion, nor your daily benefits, or the more abundant life, I promised you.” What you should say, “I’m anointed to establish the Kingdom of God and his order. I’m anointed to be healed and bring healing to others. I’m anointed not to be abused but to bring healing to those abused, as well as the abuser.”

Then I began to repent and renounce the words of entrapment. Freedom came in and the snare was broken in these areas. Yahweh has not anointed you for mess, abuse, and hurt, but to be healed and bring healing, to be delivered from, and to conquer it. Death and Life are in the power of your tongue, speak death to the things of the enemy and life to the things of God Today!

Holy Spirit, show me any words of entrapment or inner vows that I have made, that I may repent, renounce, and thus destroy its altar in my life. Lord tear down every false altar in my heart til there’s only one altar in my heart reserved for You.

Speak words of FREEDOM, not words of entrapment…your life hinges on it.

  5. Ah Yes, the lies
    – the lies Satan whispers in your ear
    – the lies past hurts have taught you
    – the lies you tell yourself

    BUT there is hope, God is ready willing & able to remove those lies from you as far as the east is from the west. You just have to trust Him to do so


    • The Lord is my deliverer from all the snares and curses! Glory to God!

  6. Apostle Cross! What a powerful post! YHWH taught me about inner vows a couple years ago; after I questioned Him about a decision that I had made. He showed me the origin; which was the inner vow. This week He has been speaking to me about speaking on the words that He speaks. When the 10 spies spoke about what they saw and perceived with their natural eyes and mind; it was called an evil report. YHWH was saying that any words spoken that are contrary to what He says is an evil report. YHWH bless you; and thank you for your faithfulness in sharing truth.

  14. This was a very good and thought provoking post. What we say about ourselves or our situation does indeed matter and reflects our perspective and view of where we see God in all of it.
