Romans 12:2 AMPC “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”
I’ve watched human beings created in the image of God (including myself) follow mere delusions. We’ve all been affected by the mind control machine. When a person believes he/she is right about something we won’t stop at nothing to defend our cause. And how often we are dead wrong?🤔 (Proverbs 14:12) Emotions are very tricky. Trusting our feelings cause us to turn on husband, wife, father, mother, son, daughter, etcetera. Jesus said this would happen big time in the last days:
Matthew 24:10-12 NLT “And MANY WILL TURN AWAY FROM ME and BETRAY AND HATE EACH OTHER. And MANY FALSE PROPHETS will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.
FALSE PROPHETS ARE NOT ALWAYS IN THE PULPIT
When you hear the phrase, “False prophet,” you might think of a church or a cult leader gone astray. But false prophets come in all shapes and sizes. They’re not just in known religious cliques. They look like everyday people. They have blanketed social media, television, movies, books, music, every medium. EVERY form of communication has been tainted by the Devil and has false prophets. Evil, twisted, ideas are always made to look good. If a person doesn’t learn to filter EVERYTHING seen and heard through God’s word they’re in big trouble. They will be brainwashed even more and have their minds controlled by wicked spirit entities.
1 John 5:19 AMPC “We know [positively] that we are of God, and the whole world [around us] is under the power of the evil one.”
“The WHOLE WORLD [around us] is under the power of the evil one,” God’s word says. Not some of it, ALL OF IT! The Devil’s stamp is on this world system; lies, more lies, and even more lies.🐍 But ahh how different is the word of God:
John 17:17 HCSB “Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.”
John 14:6 HCSB “Jesus told him, “I am the way, THE TRUTH, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
THE ANTIDOTE TO MIND CONTROL: JESUS😊
Hebrews 4:12 HCSB “For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 HCSB “All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
Jesus is the word of God. (John 1:1) Nothing is more powerful than God’s word, NOTHING!😊 He is the gift, the tool, the weapon given to us by God to renew our minds and equip us for every good work. ALL OF US have been affected and infected by mind control. Hence we need the washing of the word. This reminds me of a time I was backslidden. I was in a fornication relationship with a witch.🎃 She had me totally under her spell for about a year. What broke it? The only thing that can, God’s word.😊 While in this relationship I had stopped reading the Bible altogether and was dying. After being given a loving but stern warning from God to get out of the relationship I knew I was in trouble and didn’t have the power to stop. It was revealed to me I had stopped studying my Bible daily like I used to which is why I was so weak. I picked up the Bible again. I studied it DAILY, and talked with God in prayer begging for his help and forgiveness. I felt life coming back into me again.💪😊 In about two weeks I had the strength to end the relationship with that witch for good! And I’m not just calling this woman a witch it’s what she really was. Looking back I remember the times she slyly tried to indoctrinate me into witchcraft. Fornicating with her and rebelling against God was really the same thing according to 1 Samuel 15:23. Only God’s word got me out of that mess that could have ended very badly.😥🤕
It’s easy to follow the crowd or the pattern of this world. Standing up and standing out for God takes courage. The Holy Spirit gives us courage as we regularly feed on the word of God and apply it. Our minds get renewed. Without the word of God no renewal takes place. I would rather have my mind controlled by Jesus than by the cruel, evil spirit entities of this world.
Romans 8:5-11 HCSB “For those who live according to the flesh think about the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, about the things of the Spirit. For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God lives in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. Now if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life through His Spirit who lives in you.”
The benefits of letting our minds be controlled by the Spirit are outer worldly!😊 It results in eternal life!
