    I thank God for such a wonderful gift,of using words to destroy the devil.We see in this scripture that the mouth is the one that we use to call upon the name of Jesus,and it is the same word that God created the earth,so just believe with heart and confess with your mouth and you will be saved because in your words thats where life is,so as your salvation so dont use your mouth to say evil things because it is the one you use to appreciate the works done by Jesus Christ.glory be to Jesus Christ
