When you enter My kingdom, many things change, firstly your heart, this is a must in order to be in My kingdom at all. From that point you will see desires change, followed by your habits, as My Holy Spirit continues to help you continue to “work your own salvation into all areas of your life,” Philippians 2:12.
One of the last and most difficult classes to pass is kingdom language class. Learning to speak the language of the King is also a work of the Spirit, but also takes concentration on your part. All your speech will eventually be with grace, seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you ought to answer every man and woman, Colossians 4:6.
Grace shows favor; husbands does every thing you say to your wife favor her and build her up? Salt preserves; are all your words designed to preserve her, her self esteem and her love and esteem for you. Parents are your words building up or tearing down your children? Pastors, are your words encouraging My sheep or scattering them. How about your coworkers? Do you speak life all day or do you talk junk? Even your joking, is it clean humor with grace or does it hurt people?
In all cases the kingdom person learns to be “swift to hear, slow to speak, and especially slow to anger, James 1:19. Anger will always give you a hellish accent, speaking hurtful words that cut deep wounds in a man, and very deep wounds in the heart of a woman. A single hurtful word that a man can forget in a few minutes, can destroy a woman for life, because of her tenderness. Let me say this to all married men, if your wife is born again, you are talking to My daughter! “So, husband, you better dwell with My daughter according to kingdom knowledge, giving honor to your wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being joint heirs together of the grace of kingdom life; or I may not answer your prayers,” 1 Peter 3:7.
Your tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindles!  And your tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among your members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.  Your tongue can cannot be tamed by your old nature; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.  Does a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?  But the wisdom and language from the Holy Spirit is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  Because the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by them that make peace” James 3:5-6,8,11,17-18.
In the My kingdom language class the Holy Spirit will give you a whole new language, no more (F) words, no dirty jokes, no hurtful sarcasm, no holier than thou talk, no more putting people down. When you graduate you will be fully in Me and people will behold that all things are new, even your language! 2 Corinthians 5:17.
