Before you continue to read this article lets pray about what is already ours in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 1:17-19, Colossians 1:27 (Put your name in there.)
Father open my eyes of my understanding, help me direct my imagination to see the hope of your calling, help me know the exceeding greatness of your power, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, and the riches of the glory of your inheritance that's in me, also Father that you reveal Christ in me the hope of all glory, thank you in Jesus name amen.
Now there is way too much tradition, religion, unbelief that comes from the kingdom of satan that had kept my mind in bondage, but I am now one hundred percent free and in this article we have this revelation which will set you free also. Let's turn to the truth that sets us free (John 8:32), which it has myself and others who have taken this revelation, so it will do the same for you in Jesus name amen.
This is about freedom from the bondage of our minds and realising that satan can’t access our minds, revealed by the mind of Christ Jesus, For "who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ” 1 Corinthians 2:16.
What an awesome truth, therefore we know everything that Jesus Knows. This is made very clear in our born again spirits (John 3:3) “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see, (understand the mysteries of) the Kingdom of God”. Therefore, all that is in Christ is now in you (1 John 4:17) “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as he is, so are we in this world.”
It all started here at Ephesians 6:16, “above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one”. So my question was Lord what's this fiery dart? My natural mind would think of darts and a dart board, and I thought that the wicked one the devil could put his thoughts in my mind and control my thinking and way of life. But God opened my mind and He took me step by step, from here back to verse 11, “the wiles of the devil”, and the meaning of ‘wiles’ is lie, trickery which reveals the fiery darts.
Then He the Holy Spirit our teacher said the devil cannot put thoughts directly in your mind and cannot read or know what you are thinking, so I asked Him to show me. He took me to 1 Corinthians 2:10, “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” So I said ok awesome, He said continue, verse 11, “for what man knoweth the things (mind) of a man, save (except) the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God”.
So I got it, just as no demon devil can know Gods thoughts, no devil knows mine, thank you Lord. So then He took me to Genesis chapter 3:1-6. Satan revealed himself through a snake, a serpent to communicate with eve, so he needs an object or a person to feed his lies. Then He took me to Matthew 4:1-10 which got me focused on verse 1 “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness” This was desolate, no one else around, no man only the Holy Spirit and Jesus and the devil. This was a one on one, Jesus in the Spirit against the devil, that's why He fasted for forty days and nights; it was time to take back what you stole from my creation, from Adam and Eve. Well we know the outcome if you have been feeding yourself on the living Word. Now I hope you are starting to see with the eyes and ears of your heart of the Holy Spirit within you (Revelation 2:7).
I was taken to Mark 4:15, And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts”.
Now Jesus reveals how the devil does this in verse 17 ‘affliction’ (pressure, troubles, burdened, persecution) and verse 19 “the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches”. So he can only use people and distractions, that's why we are told people are not our problem but rather the forces behind them, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12.
Now brothers and sisters we know that we are not of this world, only in it (John 17:16) which brings us to our next point in Matthew 16:23, “But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men." Now here Peter was operating out of his carnal mind, Jesus was telling him and us that Satan is carnal, he only knows what you know in the natural realm, many miss that last part (but the things of men). Therefore Jesus was identifying satan with man, well we should all know how and why that is so (Genesis chapter 3). But we need to understand that Peter was not born again and baptized at this point until the day of Pentecost (Acts chapter 2) like we are as born again Christians and that Jesus never fulfilled our Fathers will at that point, only at the cross (John 19:20) IT IS FINISHED. From looking at Ephesians 2:2-3 we know that we were of the world “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lust of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath even as others”. But if you continue reading that whole chapter it is clear that we are no longer of this world.
We can also look at Ananias by reading through Acts 5:1-10. Now take note Ananias and his wife were not born again. How do I know this well, it says verse 1 “But a certain man named Ananias” Wherever you don't see in the Word of God an identification, i.e. a brother or sister in Christ, the Bible always identifies a believer. Now hopefully you have looked at these verses. Now they were liars, coveting, and trying to deceive the Holy Spirit, not a good place to find ones self, but look at verse 3 “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost and to keep back part of the land?” So how did Satan get to his heart (mind)? He was still under the control of the devil (Ephesians 2:2) and not born again. Now we know that there were others that came under that same judgement and death, Herod (Acts 12:23) and in 1 Corinthians 11:27-30.
So the devil has NO access to your mind as a born again Christian. He can no longer put thoughts into your mind. When you look at the word afflictions (influence) that is how he tries but no more because you now know the truth. He needs to use people and so look at 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober (discreet, watch), be vigilant (awake); because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion (with no teeth - needed to put that in!), walks about seeking whom he may devour”. Satan comes with problems, he brings all the garbage from this world by using people then tv, media etc. But now we are aware of this all we need to do is “submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” James 4:7.
We are warned so many times by our Lord about his influence which we must be vigilant of, (Matthew 24:4-5, Matthew 7:15, Matthew 24:24, Mark 13:22, 1 Corinthians 15:15, 2 Corinthians 11:13, 2 Peter 2:1, 1 John 4:1.)
So to conclude, take heed to what you hear, it's our responsibility and no one else's, we have been delivered from the power of darkness (Colossians 1:13) “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us in the Kingdom of his dear Son”, which is the KINGDOM OF LIGHT (John 1:1-9). So let's continue to renew our minds (Romans 12:2) “And be not conformed (same pattern thinking) to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind (with the word of God) that ye may prove what is that GOOD, and ACCEPTABLE, and PERFECT, will of God”.
Commit your life to the Holy Spirit he will take control if you trust him, which is faith. And enjoy your salvation in which Christ redeemed us of and for in abundance (John 10:10). I encourage you my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus our Lord and saviour to jump in the living Word and grow in faith and truth in GODS awesome Grace. Remember Our Great Shepherd (John 10:4-5), “and when he brings out his own sheep (YOU), he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice (the living Word). Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice (lies or anything that’s not been written) of strangers."
And continue in our blessing in Christ (Ephesians 1:2-3) in Jesus name amen.
