RENEWING OUR MINDS
When we. the children of God (those who have taken the first steps: confess, repent and have both baptisms (water and the Holy Spirit) have entered the Kingdom of God; our minds must be renewed towards the things of God.
– been translated into A New Kingdom- the Kingdom of God,
-become a NEW creature (a new person),
– a NEW language (communication directly with God through prayer), and more importantly
-a NEW WAY of doing things. Not as the world does but God’s way who has given us the measure of faith to walk in it. For there is a New Covenant established by the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ, our savior, healer, and deliverer.
Could it be that some have sincerely entered the Kingdom of God and don’t know the basic principles of the Kingdom of God?
Maybe there are ones:
– that has not taken the time to study them,
-didn’t think it was necessary or
-were never taught how to allow the Word of God and the Holy Spirit to renew our minds
Oh, But the scripture in Romans 12:1-3 says we should present our bodies as a living sacrifice, be not conformed to this world but transformed by the renewing of our minds. It is a continuous process and one can learn something daily.
Is this what we are seeing in the Body of Christ? Lack of knowledge, no repentance, no faith, no power?
Do we think we know more about God than anyone else and can’t be taught? Sounds like Pride. Our education, experiences, and successes according to the world systems can not be substitutes for the Word of God in the Kingdom of God.
It matters what we think because it shapes what we do and say. So, we should not avoid the process of renewing our minds after presenting our bodies as a living sacrifice.
We have been transferred into a different kingdom and our thoughts, words, and behavior must be changed to line up with God’s way of doing things and we need help to do so. We must be sober and walk according to the measure of faith that God hath dealt to every man as he pleases to gain muscles by use. We must Stay Humble. Amen
Those who have not taken the first steps. Do so NOW, for God has an assignment for you also:
Confess with your mouth that you believe Jesus died and rose from dead. Ask Jesus into your heart and repent of your sins of unbelief and disobedience. Get baptize in water in Jesus Name, and receive the Holy Language that the Holy Spirit gives to those who ask for it as soon as possible.
Putting the basic principles of activating the Word of God and being led by the Holy Spirit begins by speaking the Word out loud into your soul (mind, emotions and will). It is allowing the Word to become real (Rhema) to you as it drops in your spirit and is the beginning of walking in your new journey.
Allow the Word and the Holy Spirit to peel you like a onion for our minds have been tainted by the evil one and he is the evil influencer over the world’s systems.
Ask God for help, for somethings may be buried and the root cause(s) of many of our issues has grown into strongholds and only the:
– Sword of the Spirit (the WORD),
-Power of the Blood of the lamb and,
-Power of the Holy Spirit can pull the root (s) up and out, and destroy them in Jesus Name can set you free. Amen and Amen.
PRAY, PRAY, STUDY, STUDY and Be Great IN JESUS NAME!!
Renewing of Your Mind
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Colossians 1:9-17 *13
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
7 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Meditate Day and Night
Proverbs 4:1-27 *20-27
4 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
3 For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
