Set our Minds on things Above (6222020 9am)
Are we too attached to the things of this world? Have we been so enslaved into the systems of this world that we had become like zombies, do the same thing, at the same place, with the same people at the same time? We are or were so dependent on Nouns and allowed them to dictate our next move in our lives? NOW THE NOUNS have been shaken, shattered, shifted, or removed; now what?
Would some of us have done anything for the check (lie, cheat, steal, kill, or destroy) at any given time to survive? Anything for that almighty dollar, more possessions, approval, fame, or “success”? NOW the Money is being affected and is effecting lives NOW WHAT?
The world systems (kingdom of darkness) are setup that way, a strategically devised plot, or scheme from the ruler of darkness to enslave the minds of the people of the world. To deceive, distract, and hinder us in discovering that there is something wrong with this picture and the way to get out of the frame.
The only WAY out is to Ask and Seek for help and it is important who you ask for it. One does not want to be drawn deeper into darkness instead of up and out of it.
For many have learned and gotten it down to a science of how to survive in darkness and know how to manipulate the systems of the world thinking that one has gotten over. But have not discovered that they are going deeper and deeper in darkness and have imprisoned themselves and are being held captive.
The only Way out of darkness is to invite LIGHT (Jesus Christ) into your hearts and minds. Following the light in a pitch, dark room means you may bump into somethings, but do not stop! Step on somethings, nasty and disgusting; but do not stop! One may have to yell, or call out loud for help; do not be embarrassed but transparent! DON’T STOP!
Asking and seeking for HELP does not mean one is weak but that we are waking up and do not like what we see, feel, or hear. Those who are sleep and comfortable and have given up hope are not seeking or don’t want to KNOW that there is a way OUT.
For many have been entrapped and become the prisoner of war by the dangling carrots, falsehoods, delusions, and money that the ruler of darkness (our enemy, devil) uses to keep one in his kingdom. NOUNS that upon DEATH can not be taken with us and others will claim.
IN this hour, one must ASK for forgiveness of our sins (missing the mark, choosing to stay there in unbelief, and disobedience). ASK for forgiveness in worshipping NOUNS instead of the Almighty God (the one that has given us the very breath we breathe and life).
REPENT (Change your mind, words, behavior) go towards the LIGHT that has been there all the time; waiting for you to choose and ask for help.
It get down to a choice; stay in darkness or come towards and into the kingdom of LIGHT. No one can make that choice for you, it is your decision. We all have been given an opportunity during this time of crises to make choices, re-evaluate our lives, and seek out the TRUTH. We must not be deceived to believe everything will turn back to the way it was for NOUNS have changed.
Our decisions will require HELP from the King of King and the Lord of Lord; the KING of the Kingdom of LIGHT. He has already paved the way and destroyed the works of the devil.
Those who have chosen the LIGHT and are safely under his protection in his Kingdom at this time must re-evaluate and REPENT. ASK for wisdom and discernment so one can grasp and understand the SHIFT. Who are we worshipping, what NOUN are you bowing to or has more influence THAN GOD himself on our lives? REPENT for allowing the kingdom of darkness (it ways, behavior, strategies, sounds, and errors) into the Kingdom of LIGHT.
For the spirit of Error has opened doors to:
– manipulation, witchcraft (controlling the minds and behavior of the people),
-distractions from hearing and receiving the Word,
-being led by FLESH AND NOT the HOLY SPIRIT,
-prayers bouncing off the ceiling instead of effectively praying from the Holy of Holies,
-captivity instead of freedom,
-sexual immorality, false teachings, and apostasy.
REPENT, REPENT, for we have been ASKED to pray and return from OUR wicked ways. For we look at the sinner and think how awful but they are sinners involuntary blinded by the enemy and lack knowledge) or voluntary (choice). BUT WE have been given an opportunity to examine ourselves (not put the blame on someone else, like ADAM did in Genesis) and change our own thoughts, words, and behaviors.
In Colossians 3, we are prompted to make CHRIST the true center of our lives and get out houses in order.
Colossians 3 (KJV)
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
It is our choice, which one will we choose? For this is the beginning of sorrows and we must:
– root out what is not like God,
-pull down the walls that prevent one from being who God says and ordain us to be,
-tear down the lies that we bought,
– destroy what was sent to destroy (using the Word, the Blood, and the power of the Holy Spirit that has been given and readily available) and
-overthrow, to build, and to plant.
OUR Father knows our name, what he has given us (gifts, talents, skills) even before we came out of our mother’s womb. However, we were born into a sinful world and the enemy’s plot is to keep us for discovering and walking in it. BUT OUR KING JESUS has destroyed his works and has passed the baton to us.
Will we take it (for now is the time) and pressed towards the mark or drop it? NOT SO IN JESUS NAME. COME ON BROTHERS AND SISTERS, LET’S RUN THIS RACE TO THE FINISH LINE. For Christ Jesus is our strength and joy, we have the protection of the ALMIGHTY and he is watching and interceding for us.
Let us pray for one another, keep our armor on, come in unity, for it will require all of us to do what we have been called to do. AMEN and AMEN.
