HOW TO COMMIT MURDER
THE TONGUE AND THE TITANIC

I want to talk to you today about How to Commit Murder – or – The Tongue and the Titanic.

I used to live on my boat. It was a sloop and had excellent turning capabilities. Generally, the rudder of a ship should be 1/70th of the size of the hull. And, there is a formula used by naval architects to calculate the area of a ship’s rudder: AR = K x LBP x d (m2).


WORDS DETERMINE DIRECTION

The rudder of a ship guides it through the waters; it determines the ship’s directions. It is the same way with your rudder: your tongue. It guides your life and determines the direction you travel … plus it determines in great extent what comes into your life because you’re passing through those charted areas you predetermIned by your speech.

As a student of coastal navigation I learned to chart my sailing trips. In the same way you are charting your future as well as the present by what comes out of your mouth. The rudder of a ship is small compared to the overall size of the vessel; however, it turns the vessel wherever the captain of the ship determines. Our brother James tells us:

Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.” (James 3:4)

King Solomon said, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)

Death” words discourage: they are destructive and debilitating; they impair one’s strength and make weak or feeble.

Life” words encourage: they minister hope and potential; they provide encouragement and a reason for continued perseverance. If you want to win in life, make a decision to live … and to help others do the same with your words!

Your words influence direction for you … and for others. It has been said that a person has two voices: the one they use at home and the one they use with others. Example: Do you speak to your Rabbi or Pastor the same way that you speak to your spouse or your children at home?

Synagogue and church gossipers can hurt others with their words. Here’s another example: “Did you see what Melani wore last week?! She had 20 pounds of sugar in a five pound sack! And, did you notice the tattoo?!”

April 14-15, 1912, the British luxury passenger liner, Titanic, sank en route to New York City from Southampton, England during its maiden voyage. The vessel sank with a loss of about 1,500 lives. It’s rudder directed it into an iceberg.


WORDS ARE LIKE FIRE

Our beloved brother James – comparing the tongue to a ship’s rudder – also tells us, “Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles.” (James 3:5)Many times I have seen where thousands of acres of beautiful forest land have been destroyed by a small campfire.

The word used for “fire” in the original Greek language is the word “pur: which means more than just regular fire, it means “lightning.” Your words have the power to burn people!

In Psalm 52:2, King David shares, “Your tongue devises destruction, like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.”

In the Guiness Book of World Records – and confirmed by GPS – Craig Harrison of the UK’s Household Cavalry killed two Taliban insurgents from a distance of 2,474 m / 2.47 km (8,120 ft, or 1.54 miles) in November 2009. It took the 8.59 mm rounds almost three seconds to hit their targets, which were 914 m (3,000 ft) beyond the L115A3 sniper rifle’s recommended range. A third shot took out the insurgent’s machine gun. The rifle used was by Accuracy International.

I mentioned this “sniper kill record” to let you know that your words can kill worldwide. Fire can hurt other than through your tongue – it can hurt people through your fingertips – for example, through E-mail or social media.


WORDS MUST BE GUARDED

Benjamin Franklin said, “Slip of the foot, you can recover. Slip of the tongue, you may never recover.”

James also taught us, “For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” (James 3:7-8)

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Well, if the tongue cannot be tamed WHY are you teaching on this?” My answer is, “Because we can learn to discipline ourselves.” That’s why James said that if we don’t stumble in our words (James 3:2) we are mature and able to “bridle” the whole body – a bridle directs a horse like a rudder directs a ship like a tongue directs a life.

Monitoring your words may seem difficult at first, but it will help you to progress in right living. Learn to speak well of others – even if they don’t speak well of you – because: 1. slander issues out of demonic, worldly wisdom; and, 2. God is the Judge.

I recommend you study my teaching, Don’t Let the Little Dogs Bother You (How to Shake Off Liars and Gossips) because it will help you to see immensely the inner workings of such evil.

Here are some keys to help you guard your words:

1. Learn not to speak rashly. Zip your lips!

2. Pick your battles. Know when to hold them and when to fold them!

3. Speak life. Be a minister of the sanctuary.

4. Sleep on it (even your emails). In the morning you may say: “Glad I didn’t do that.”


WORDS GO OUT INTO ETERNITY

For several years during the early 1970’s I lived a few blocks from Richard and Karen Carpenter – The Carpenters. One of my favorite songs they recorded was: We’ve Only Just Begun. (Listen to it in this podcast) We had a mutual friend, Jim White, who owned a stationery store where Karen Carpenter and I used to do business. (By God’s grace, I led the owner of that store to Christ at the counter one day and he became a wonderful Christian.)

Karen died at the age of 33 of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa in the city of Downey (Los Angeles area) where I still have an office. She had struggled for eight years with chronic anorexia. Karen had been down to 79 pounds in weight, and started back up to 110, but died one year later.

What most people don’t know is this: A radio personality one time referred to Karen as “Richard’s chubby little sister.” Those words went out into eternity with Karen.

Words determine direction – they’re like fire – and they must be guarded. Words go out into eternity with blessing or cursing … with life or death.

CHOOSE LIFE!

DESCRIPTION:

The real life story of Prince Handley when he was stabbed with a knife by two men who tried to rob him. How God spoke to a person in a laundromat to go pray for Prince Handley (the person did not know him) and the miraculous healing that resulted. Plus, eleven people gave their lives to the Lord in the hospital.


HOW GOD SPARED MY LIFE

MUSIC / INTRO

In 1969 I dedicated six weeks from before Thanksgiving through the end of the year to do open air evangelism in Los Angeles. The Lord blessed me greatly during that time with many opportunities to fast, and the power of God was manifested wonderfully with thousands of people being reached daily.

At the end of this period I was very weary and decided to visit some friends in a city about two hours away. I was there two days, rested, and returned to Los Angeles at night. As I was walking in the center of the city, I was faced with a decision. I knew if I walked in the same direction I was going that in about two blocks I would find Christian friends holding an open air meeting and I could preach with them.

But I made a BAD decision. I decided to turn left and go down a dark street … away from the Christians. I not only turned away from PHYSICAL light, but I turned away from SPIRITUAL light. There is nothing wrong with resting, but that night I turned away from a great opportunity to reach many more people for Christ, and also to be an encouragement to brothers and sisters on the front lines for Messiah.

As I was walking down the dark street two men began to follow me and then one stepped beside me. I knew they were up to mischief so I started praising God. Then one of the men stabbed me with a knife. He stabbed me hard in the abdomen near my navel and drove the knife in deeply. They tried to get my billfold (wallet) but couldn’t. It only had $12 in it anyway! I was still standing, and I began to pray for them.

I reached into my suit pocket, grabbed two little red Bibles and placed them into their hands. They threw them into the street and the man who stabbed me held the knife up to my face so I could see the blood on it (as though I didn’t know what happened). I bent over and picked up the little red Bibles from the street and tried to put them into their hands again. The man who had stabbed me tried to stab me again but couldn’t … God’s angels wouldn’t let him.

Then I turned and walked away from them across the street. Up to this time I had experienced no pain, probably because my adrenaline was pumping and my body was about to go into shock. I remembered thinking as I crossed the street, “Is this it? Am I about to die and go to Heaven?”

MUSIC

I made my way into a Mexican restaurant and tried to tell people what had happened; however, nobody spoke English. Finally, I lifted up my sweater that I was wearing under the suit coat, and showed them the blood.

Then I started experiencing the most horrible pain I could ever imagine. I never knew there was pain like that! I lay down on a booth seat in the restaurant and couldn’t get the pain to stop even by pulling my legs up tight. It felt like sand was tearing through my body. It seemed like nobody was doing anything … it seemed like eternity … but finally an emergency ambulance arrived. When they put me in the ambulance I just wanted to hold someone’s hand and I tried to hold the hand of the person in uniform – I don’t know if it was a policeman or EMT paramedic – but that person wouldn’t hold my hand.

I remember coming to consciousness a few times on a gurney in the hallway of the hospital... still in pain. Later I was told that there were so many stabbings, shootings, assaults, and accidents that Sunday night that they couldn’t get to me for six (6) hours. I didn’t know there was such pain as that.

When I finally woke up after surgery I started praising God. I was so glad not to feel the terrible pain I had experienced. I was under heavy medication and was in a room with about 10 to 15 other men. One man had been stabbed in the head several times with sharp sticks by a street gang. Others had been shot and stabbed. One man had been shot four times with a 38-caliber revolver pistol – three times in the chest and the fourth just missed his jugular vein.

I was the worst case there, however, and I had a nurse stationed permanently by my bedside. There were four tubes running in and out of my body: providing blood, nourishment, and drainage. When I became conscious, I started praising God, and the nurse said to me, “Sir, do you know where you’re at?” I said, “Yes, I’m in the hospital! Praise God!” Then she said, “Do you know what happened to you?” And I said, “Yes, I just had surgery. I was stabbed! Praise God!” It felt so good to have that pain relieved!

Nobody knew I was in the hospital. I don’t remember if it was a few minutes or a few hours after becoming conscious, but I began to experience a very serious spiritual battle at that time. It was like Satan and demons were on my left side … and God and the Holy Angels on my right side. It was as though Satan was trying to take my soul out of my body. I was tempted to just relax and go ahead and die … or to relax and just let the drugs that were going through my body take over.

Then God spoke to me strongly
. He said, “Get command of this situation!” By that I knew that He meant to take mental command of the situation … to not let my mind go … but to keep control of my thoughts! I said to God, “I know you can heal long distance by people praying, but if You will just send someone to lay their hands on me and pray for me, I KNOW I will be healed!”

MUSIC

Even though nobody knew I was there, somehow a man in a laundromat heard about me being stabbed. He didn’t know me from “Adam;” however, he was a vessel of the Holy Spirit and had a healing ministry. At the time I was in the hospital – Los Angeles General Hospital – it had 2,500 rooms. (A few years later, it was remodeled and had then about 2,000 rooms.)

The man in the laundry came to the hospital, went up the elevator to the ninth floor, walked into the 9300 ward, came straight to my bed, and said, “Brother, the Lord Jesus Christ raised me from death one time, and He has sent me to pray for you that you might be healed.” He then laid his hands upon me and prayed for me, “Lord Jesus, heal my brother!” … turned around and walked away.

A group of six to eight young interns were with other doctors who were examining me and the other patients on the ward the next day. I told the doctor I had been healed and wanted something to eat … like a steak! He didn’t take me seriously and told me that if I could pass a bowel movement that he would order me something to eat. He told me that because I had several holes in my intestines as a result of the knife stab. Later, I think the next day, I went to the restroom successfully.

I also snuck out of the ward and took IV’s and fluids that were being pumped into my body — they were mounted on stands with rollers – with me. I went into another area of the hospital and started exercising. But then, a doctor recognized me and yelled at me, “What are you doing?” I said, “I’m exercising.” He said, “Don’t you know that you can rip all that silk we put in you?” (Meaning, I guess, the sutures with which they had stitched me.) Then, I told him, “I just did 21 deep knee bends!” After that, I think I was ordered to return to the (trauma) ward.

In a couple of days friends found that I was in the hospital. Reverend Al Hovey, from the Church of the Open Door, who was on staff with Dr. J. Vernon McGee, and other Christians from the Los Angeles Full Gospel Tabernacle, came to visit. Eleven people on the ward (seven patients and four nurses) received Messiah Jesus.

MUSIC

While I was in the hospital I received two (2) scriptures from two different people.

One was from a man 1500 miles away, whom I had never met, but who was a friend of my brother. That scripture was Psalm 91 … which I have claimed almost every day of my life since!

The other scripture was from a classmate with whom I had attended graduate school in theological seminary. It was Philippians 3:10.

“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.”

The word “power” here used, from the Greek “dunamis” means “force (literally or figuratively); and specifically MIRACULOUS POWER, usually by implication a miracle itself.

The word “sufferings” here used, from the Greek “pathema” means “something undergone, that is, HARDSHIP or PAIN, subjectively an emotion or influence.

I had read that verse many times, and always focused on the “power of His resurrection” but never on the “fellowship of His sufferings.” Then I thought back about the six hours I was in such horrible pain waiting in the hallway of the hospital for surgery. And I thought about my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ – God’s only Son – who hung on a wooden cross stake SIX HOURS for me.

He went through horrible pain to take my sins upon Him … that I might be FREE! However … He did it WILLINGLY … for me, for you, and for everyone in the world: to pay for our sins … a GIFT of forgiveness … a NEW START for all who will receive Him by faith!

I walked out of the hospital by myself in six days, got on a bus, and went immediately to go preach at Broadway and 6th Avenue proclaiming the Good News of Messiah Jesus who SAVES and HEALS!

I still look at my scar at times … it’s at least nine inches long … and then I think of how some day I will SEE the scars in a Jewish rabbi who loved me enough to die for me: so that I can LIVE FOREVER in Heaven with Him and His Father!

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.

Prince Handley

HEALING MENTAL DISEASE AND DEPRESSION

Mental disease and depression may have their root in any of the following, or a combination of them:

Physical injury;

Mental injury; or,

Spiritual injury.

Physical injury may happen due to the following:

Accidents

Abuse

Error in medical diagnosis

Malnutrition

Lack of dietary supplements

Mental injury may happen due to the following:

Accidents

Abuse

Prolonged physical stress

Deferred hope

Loss of a loved one

Malnutrition

Rejection

Discouragement

Lack of dietary supplements

Unattainable or unrealistic goals

War and chaos

Genetic provocations

Spiritual injury may happen due to the following:

Extreme disappointment

Slander

Accusations (founded or unfounded)

Involvement in the occult

Activity with religious cults

Loss of a loved one

Also, be aware that any of the three (3) types of injury mentioned (physical, mental, or spiritual) can be a result of demonic activity. It can also be the result of a combination of the demonic and the physical, mental, or spiritual. For example, a demon spirit may ride in upon (that is, take advantage of) an injury weakness and use it as a channel of possession or oppression.

NOTICE: Physical injury may result in spiritual and mental injury. Spiritual injury may result in physical and mental injury. Mental injury may result in spiritual and physical injury. They can be inter-related. This is because we were created a tripartite being: body, mind, and spirit.

For example, a physical injury resulting from an accident can result in mental depression and spiritual regression. By spiritual regression, I am talking about wandering away from G-d. A more precise example of this could be bitterness or anger toward G-d as a result of an accident, or the death of a loved one, or unattainable (unrealistic) goals.

Deferred hope many times is the cause of a person turning away from G-d; with the possibility of a twofold prognosis: mental injury (depressive manic and schizophrenic tendencies) and physical injury (sickness or disease, and even paralysis).

Somebody listening to this podcast (or, reading this message) has been hurt. You were crushed in your spirit. You have been depressed and your mind has been confused as a result. The enemy of your soul, Satan, used human enemies (some you did NOT know about) to attack you, malign you, and to attempt to remove you from a place of blessing.

I have GOOD NEWS for you from G-d. The LORD is going to turn that situation around – promotion and blessing are coming to you unexpectedly – and you will be in a better position to build God’s kingdom, and to receive GREAT BLESSING from G-d for yourself, also.

“We know that all things work together for good to them who love G-d and are called to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

“Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.” (Isaiah 54:15)

“But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, ‘Bow down, that we may go over:’ and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.” (Isaiah 51:23)

Joseph’s enemies drove him into the position of Prime Minister where the purposes of G-d were fulfilled.

Daniel’s enemies drove him into the position of Prime Minister where the purposes of G-d were fulfilled.

Mordecai’s enemies drove him into the position of Prime Minister where the purposes of G-d were fulfilled.

Your enemies can drive you into the position of blessing if you will release your faith in Messiah Yeshua, the LAMB of G-d, Who bought you with the BLOOD of the everlasting Passover.

Love G-d and live for Him. If you are following His purpose for your life, your enemies will drive you to a better position.

PRAY: Ask G-d to smite Satan, to turn the situation around which has been designed against you by the enemy, and to use it for your promotion to the glory of G-d. There will be a performance unto you of the thing spoken to you by the LORD because you believed!

START PRAISING G-D!

I trust this teaching will help you.

Your friend,
Prince Handley
