Sometimes Hashem says something very specific to his people. I believe He is saying, "Only speak my words." I felt this message this past week. This morning it was confirmed through a message from another FB friend. Yes, it is true that FB is not Adonai, if He can speak through a donkey, He can speak through anything. I believe He is saying, when you speak, only use the words He inspired in Scripture.
So, how do you knit together His words so that they are contextually correct in the Bible/Tanakh and meaningful to hearers? This is not easy. But, you can start by repeating the words that have the same meaning as what you feel you have been inspired to say. I would ask
that you do one thing: Cite the Scripture location of each phrase or sentence or paragraph.
Some may start with just quoting a Scripture. Others may graduate to stitching together texts that are true to their contextual meaning (interpretation/inspiration). Still, others will have the ability to draft complete conversations using only the correct contextual meanings of material derived from the Sacred Text. Wherever you are on your journey in the Word, start speaking His words. Then, allow the community to speak into your meaning, understanding, and stance. I believe the whole community will profit from seeing and hearing what you have said.
Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” (Ex. 4:12)
You are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth; and I, even I, will be with your mouth and his mouth, and I will teach you what you are to do. - Ex. 4:15
that the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “I am the Lord; speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I speak to you.” - Ex. 6:29
But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ Because everywhere I send you, you shall go, And all that I command you, you shall speak. - Jer. 1:7
Go near and hear all that the Lord our God says; then speak to us all that the Lord our God speaks to you, and we will hear and do it.’ - Deut. 5:27
I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to establish the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’” - Isa. 51:16
for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute. - Luke 21:15
But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say. - Matt. 10:19
