“Your mind your life” 14

“The unchangeable mind”

Rom 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

NLT Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.

3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.

1 Cor 13:9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.

THE THOUGHTS OF TRUTH ARE THE INGREDIENTS FOR CHANGE!

REJOICING, PRAYER and THINKING ARE SPIRITUAL – MENTAL HEALTH INSTRUCTIONS…

NAS phil 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, (NLT FIX YOUR THOUGHTS ON) whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell (THINK) on these things.

WE CAN CONTROL WHAT WE THINK ON!

IF YOU HAVE LOST PEACE YOU ARE THINKING ON THE WRONG THING (Is 26:3)

YLT Isaiah 26:3 “An imagination supported Thou fortifiest peace–peace! For in Thee it is confident.
4 Trust ye in Jehovah for ever, For in Jah Jehovah [is] a rock of ages, (EVERLASTING ROCK) (Unchanging)

GW “With perfect peace you will protect those whose minds cannot be changed because they trust you”

The mind stayed on him… is unchangeable

philip 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

1 Cor 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses (PULLING DOWN STRONGHOLDS). 5 We are destroying speculations (CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS) and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,

Col 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule (UMPIRE) in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to god.

Prov 16:3 Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.
Kjv “Thy thoughts shall be established”

Prov 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

ASPECT MEANS; A PART OF… OR FEATURE OF SOMETHING;
A SPECIFIC WAY, IN WHICH SOMETHING CAN BE CONSIDERED.

AN OVERLOOKED ASPECT OF ABUNDANCE IS ANGELS
WE HAVE DIVINE HELP AVAILABLE TO US – (Heb 12:22 Myriads)

Luke 2:13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

ANYTHING THAT BLESSES, HELPS, AIDS, OR ASSITS, THE’RE ON IT…

ACTIVATING THE ANGELS
Ps 103:20 Bless the Lord, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!
21 Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will.

Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

PAUL’S ANSWER IN Eph 6 IS ARMOR AND PRAYER…
13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints

PRAYER OPENS THE EYE’S TO SPIRITUAL REALITIES…

PRAYER IS A BIG KEY TO ANGELIC INTERVENTION AND ACTIVATION.

YOU REALLY CAN’T APPROPRIATE THE MINISTRY OF ANGELS WITHOUT HAVING A VITAL, DYNAMIC PRAYER LIFE.

MATT 16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.

Ex. DANIEL 6 – LIONS DEN… HE PRAYED AND AN ANGEL CLOSED LIONS MOUTH

DON’T PANIC… PRAY

Ex. ABRAHAM – Sodom and Gomorrah – HE INTERCEEDED CH 18
CH 19 TWO ANGELS COME WALKING INTO TOWN

BOLD DECLARATIONS –
Prv 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit. (COMMISSION WRONG ONES)

Ps 103:20-21 – SPEAK THE WORD AS A CONFESSION OF FAITH

DON’T MURMUR OR COMPLAIN – 1 Cor 10:10 “Grumbled – destroyed”
Vs 11 “These things happened as an example & for our instruction”

THIS TYPE OF LIFESTYLE WILL ABORT THE PLAN OF GOD IN LIFE

THIS IS WHAT HEBREWS 3 & 4 REFER TO. (CONFESSION OF FAITH)
THEY HAD GOOD NEWS BUT PROVOKED HIM AND DISOBEYED.

Heb 4:14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

“Your mind your life” 13

“Power to shape”

Rom 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

CONFORMED MEANS; TO FASHION ALIKE, TO CONFORM TO THE SAME PATTERN

Be transformed –Grk metamorphoo

2 Cor 10:5 We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.

THE THOUGHTS OF TRUTH ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF CHANGE!

18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

Eph 4:22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.

Col 3:10 put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the one who created him

THERE IS A FORCE AT WORK TO HINDER GOD’S PLAN – THE ENEMY
2 Cor 4:3 and even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

DARKNESS BREADS DARK THOUGHTS, WRONG THOUGHTS, DESTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS, TOXIC THOUGHTS… & IT AFFECTS EVERYTHING FROM ATTITUDES TO ATMOSPHERES…

Gen 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent (IMAGINATION) of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

(THOUGHT; TO WEAVE, TO FABRICATE)
(IMAGINATION; TO MOLD INTO A FORM, TO SQUEEZ INTO A SHAPE

A THOUGHT IS A SPIRITUAL FORM THAT SHAPES… IT’S A SUBSTANCE

GOD IS THE POTTER AND HE USES HIS WORD TO SHAPE US…
Eph 1:4 “he chose (saw) us in him before the foundation of the world”
WE EXISTED IN HIM BEFORE WE EXISTED OUT HERE!

the word – mixed with faith has power to shape!

Acts 14:7 And there they continued to preach the gospel. At Lystra a man was sitting who had no strength in his feet, lame from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. This man was listening to Paul as he spoke, who, when he had fixed his gaze on him and had seen that he had faith to be made well, said with a loud voice, “stand upright on your feet.” And he leaped up and began to walk.

NLT Phil 4:19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

James 5:7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.

ANGELS ARE INVOLVED IN ASSISTING IN THE HARVEST WHICH INCLUDES FINANCIAL INCREASE AND RESOURCES

James 5:1Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. 2 Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure!

THERE’S NO MONEY ISSUE IN THE WORLD – IT’S A LOCATION ISSUE

4 Behold, the pay (WAGES) of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabbath.

2 Cor 10:3-5 We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.

God’s thoughts will transform you… shape you

Ps 1:1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.

a word – is a thought expressed;

Ps 139:1O Lord, you have searched me and known me. 2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. 3 You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately acquainted with all my ways. 4 even before there is a word on my tongue, behold, o lord, you know it all.

GOD’S THOUGHTS ARE EXPRESSED IN AND THROUGH HIS WORD.

AN OVERLOOKED ASPECT OF ABUNDANCE IS ANGELS

ELISHA SURROUNDED BY THE ARMY OF ARMEANS
2 Kings 6:17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of *fire all around Elisha.

And rescues them.

MINISTRY / SERVICE
Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?

ANGELS COOPERATE WITH THE PLAN OF GOD FOR OUR LIVES!

STRENGTH FOR A SEASON OR PHASE
Ex. Jesus in the wilderness and in Garden

Acts 8:26 (PHILIP IN SAMARIA) But an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip saying, “Get up and go south to the road that descends from Jerusalem to Gaza.” (This is a desert road.)

Acts 10:3 (CORNELIUS – Feared God, gave alms and prayed regular) “About the ninth hour of the day he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God who had just come in and said to him, “Cornelius!”

Acts 27:23 (PAUL ON SHIP) “For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you.’

Acts 5:19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the gates of the prison, and taking them out he said, 20 “Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this Life.”

John 5:2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. 3 In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [waiting for the moving of the waters; 4 for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.]

ANGELS CO-OPERATE IN HEALINGS – HEALING POWER

WE NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE FUNCTION OF ANGELS AND BE FAITHFUL WITH THOSE DISPATCHED TO OUR LIVES

FAITHFULNESS IS A FLOW OF EVERYDAY LIFE…

IF MORE IS NOT BEING ADDED TO YOUR LIFE THEN CHECK YOUR FAITHFULNESS.

FAITH IN THE BLOOD PT 2

Rom 1:17b But the righteous man shall live by faith.

Rom 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;

Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on A tree”— in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

THE VERY DIFINITION OF THE WORD BLESSED COMES FROM THE WORD BLOOD

1 Cor 10:16 Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ?

THAT MEANS BY FAITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CLEANSES US INTERNALLY… (Heb 9:9)

GOD LIVES IN A CONSTANT VIEW OF THE BLOOD.

1 John 1:7 “The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin”

WE HAVE A BLOOD COVENANT WITH GOD.

Heb 9:12 And not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
15 For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant

ANDREW MURRY – “To receive this blessing, nothing is necessary except faith in the blood”

THE BLOOD AND THE BLESSING IS CONNECTED SO THE MORE YOU KNOW ABOUT THE BLOOD THE MORE BLESSED YOU WILL BE.

ANDREW MURRY – “THE BLOOD HAS PREVAILED IN 3 PLACES”

1. The blood prevails in heaven – forever changing it. (Holy place)

THE BLOOD GIVES GOD THE LEGAL RIGHT TO BLESS YOU EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE DISQUALIFIED.

2. The blood has prevailed over hell.

YLT Isaiah 59:19 “When come in as a flood doth an adversary, The Spirit of Jehovah hath raised an ensign against him. (Standard)

(Numbers 25 – serpent on the pole)

PICTURE HERE I SENT OF MEN HOLDING UP THE FLAG ******

JESUS – John 3 “When I’m lifted up will draw all to me”

THE BLOOD IS THE FOUNDATION FOR EVERY BENEFIT, PROMISE AND BLESSING IN YOUR LIFE.

Heb 10:19 “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
22 Let us draw near”

3. The blood has prevailed in your heart

THE CONDITION OF OUR HEART DETERMINES HOW OPEN WE ARE TO RECEIVE.

YOUR CONFESSION IS LIKE THE HYSSOP THEY USED FOR THE PASSOVER

The blood of Jesus purges me from every defilement of the enemy. The blood of Jesus prevents deception and aborts every attempt of the enemy to deceive me. It reconciles everything in me to the perfect will of God every day and every way. It is my divine covering and protection
