All Preachers of the Gospel are Commanded by the Lord to Preach True Repentance Part 2

3 Jun

We need to take control of our thought life and stop allowing those toxic thoughts the demons send you any opportunity to build up any more strong holds. There are now some very sophisticated imaging techniques that can actually shows all those chemicals changes being secreted or squirted out from the memory trees in the brain. So you can actually see what healthy thoughts look like and unhealthy thoughts, and can trace to some degree what they do in the bodily systems. Keeping in mind that all those good healthy memories you engage in and reactivate secrete out good chemicals that release healing molecules and bring about health and healing. All those mean nasty toxic thorny memory trees which hold onto all the bad memories and are built with spirits of hurts and bitterness secrete those toxic chemicals that eventually bring you sickness and diseases.

Every time those pre-existing memories are re-activated so its like a wind that blows and all those memory trees sway back and forth releasing electrical charges. Then the hypothalamus also activates the emotions that are all stored with them from within the library of your mind which is called the amygdala. Meaning that all those emotions that are activated were already developed and stored in your brain when those pre-existing memories which are like the strongholds were established as memory trees in your brain. Building Godly positive strongholds built on the Holy Scriptures will activate positive emotions and release good chemicals into your blood stream. Because we are to bring forth good fruit. Galatians 5:22 ,“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”
God’s ultimate aim for all of us is our sanctification in Christ and our relationship with Him and others. Part of that sanctification process has to do with the Holy Spirit Baptism transferring 9 specific divine qualities and attributes to merge into our personalities.
The Lord our God wants to work with every true believer equipping them as needed with the 9 fruits and 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit. Causing you to become one mighty, sanctified highly trained soldier of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua.
For we read in 1 Corinthians 12:7,”But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.”

So we have 1. The Word of Knowledge 2. The Word of Wisdom 3. The Gift of Prophecy 4. The Gift of Faith 5. The Gifts of Healings
6. The Working of Miracles 7. The Discerning of Spirits 8. Different Kinds of Tongues 9. The Interpretation of Tongues.
Not only does the Holy Bible tell us that these 9 gifts are available to all believers, but the Lord actually tells us that we ought to stir these 9 gifts up with the Lord. For example 1 Corinthians 14:39,” Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.”  In other words we are to desire earnestly to prophesy. We are suppose to desire spiritual gifts, but especially that we may prophesy 1 Corinthians 14:1,” Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.”
1 Thessalonians 5:19,”Quench not the Spirit.20 Despise not prophesyings.”

Anyone notice how most of the modern church comes against prophesyings and so effectively quenches the Holy Spirit from moving amongst them. The Lord tells us not to neglect the gift that is in you, We are suppose to meditate on His Holy Word and in all these things that we give ourselves entirely to seeking first His Kingdom and righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. That also your progress as a true believer may be evident to all.” 1 Timothy 4:14,” Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.”
So we are to remind each other to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of hands.” 2 Timothy 1:6,” Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.”
This is what the Lord says to do and He also warns us it is a narrow path and very few find it. So as you share the Gospel not everyone is receptive, but some will be who mix their faith with the Gospel truth. Hebrews 4:2,” For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
1 Peter 1:7,” That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.”
Fire will only separate all the impurities from gold, so it doesn’t lose its colour or weight or any of its nature. Genuine faith will also prove itself, because faith in Christ makes you a new creature  and gives you a personnel confidence as strong as the faith of those who saw the Lord Jesus in the flesh.
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.” (old things are passed away;is a progressive statement here)
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;”
Romans 5:5,” And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”

So how are we to deal with these issues when we engage in daily battles against the enemy of our souls trying to lure us into sin, that bates us into toxic thoughts? A negative stronghold or toxic thorny memory tree are quite capable of activating very strong emotion such as the spirit of fear brings to you. So that fear and that unloving spirit , along with spirits of bitterness and, anger, envy and jealousy, doubt and unbelief are able to rises up and check out memories from the library of your life from your amygdala. Now as you have probably already observed and experienced all these toxic emotions are very real and they can even re-surface many years after an event has occurred, when the memory of that event is activated and recalled. For example, when you think about how that person from your past hurt you and caused you pain and the times of suffering you experienced as a result. Because that pre-existing toxic thorny memory tree built along with the spirit of unforgiveness and bitterness’s help is reactivated by the electrical charge type wind that blows through your memory trees moving the corresponding negative emotions to be secreted into your blood stream from the amygdala. So that alters your perceptions and causes you to not feel like your in a blessed state of mind.

What is going on is you body is so wonderfully designed and created that it is able to communicate with itself and with your spirit and soul. Because you control your brain, your brain does not control you. However, the enemy of our souls has come to try and use this understanding against you. So all the information that is being communicated through all those molecules that carry that feeling or emotion you are experiencing, actually create a copy or imprint of the memory as they are being released and flowing throughout your bloodstream into all your body parts. They are then able to bind to receptors on your bodies cells which actually cause you to experience and physically feel that feeling of fear or anger or bitterness type of emotion that quickly rise up within you. In a similar way you might feel a rush of adrenalin when an alarm goes off unexpectedly or you see police lights flashing behind you as you are driving. That sort bad feeling that happens when you are confronted with negative information or situations and experience a moment of dread. So if this can happen as you are just thinking a thought, imagine how this is causing chemicals reactions to take place in your body. Because you are reacting to the thought and then replaying it mentally and physically as though the event was happening all over again. As if you could cause a different ending then what actually happened. Its really toxic to keep replaying something negative within, and keep thinking to yourself,” if only I did that differently.”
Research in the science of epigenetics has shown that when you deeply think, imagine and visualize something it produces the same physical reactions in the brain as it you are actually physically carrying out and doing the very thing during the imagination process.

Jesus told us if you so much as lust after a women you have committed spiritual adultery. So science is now showing that when you are imagining doing something, that pretty much exactly the same brain areas and circuits are activated as if you were actually doing the activity for real. Which the Lord Jesus said all along.

Matthew 5:28,” But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

Now the Lord gave us an imagination to be used for His glory, we need to live lives that are glorifying to Christ.
We read in Genesis 11:6,” And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”

You may need to start to see yourself and imagine yourself and others the way the Lord see you and them.
When a uncomfortable thought or feeling comes in, we must speak the Word of God out loud if possible to counteract that feeling or thought so that the enemy does not get a foothold again.

Studies of brain scans are showing that the same parts of the brain that are activated by your physical actions, are the same parts of the brain activated just by simply thinking about doing that action. What you think about the most grows the most and the more you imagine and meditate on that thought, the stronger and more vivid the emotional and physical reaction actually becomes.

So what happens is this, when you don’t understand this business of practicing taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5)  you find yourself wanting to respond to those strong toxic, negative, physical feelings that you are experiencing in your body. Numbers of people end up responding impulsively by immediately reacting to those emotional feelings that are trying to over take you. I mean how often have you said or done something because you felt put off or angry that turned out to be a mistake? The Lord said in Ephesians 4:26,” Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:”
When you go with feelings rather then the Word of God you are headed for troubles.  I had a man tell me once he only gets angry for about 5 minutes, I told him it only takes a few moments for a neutron bomb to go off and look at the devastation it leaves behind.

Because even though your emotions feel like they are based on truth, they are actually based more on your perceptions of what you think is the truth. To avoid doing this in future we must stand back and analyze our emotions based on the Word of God before reacting to them. Asking the Holy Spirit what would Jesus do is a good place to start. Because there is literally nothing we can not ask the Lord about. So the Holy Spirit can give you a word of knowledge on how to properly handle something that you are currently dealing with, or perhaps give you a word of knowledge to help and bless someone else out.
John 14:13,” And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” There is no limits on what you can ask the Lord about as long as you meet the requirements.  With our own knowledge levels being so limited this side of heaven, we all need words of knowledge from the Lord on some kind of regular basis in this life so that we can live a life that is glorifying to Christ and fulfill our divine destiny. Since you are the only unique you there will ever be and God has a good plan for you to be here for such a time as this. You could have been born at any other time throughout creation and history and the Lord planned for you to be here now. The other thing is that you must not ignore or bury those emotions you are feeling in response to the thoughts that were activated in the memory trees of your mind. That keeping a stiff upper lip does not work out in the end so well. Because all those emotions that you tried to bury are most likely to eventually erupt at some point and when they do its like a volcano. This is when you see people have stack attacks and bring out a record of wrongs. Another reason the Lord tells us its the little things that cause big problem. Best to be transparent and deal with things as the happen before the Lord day after day, moment by moment.
Song of Solomon 2:15,”Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.”

For example someone who trying to overcome the spirit of anger. They feel stressed from dealing with things going on in their work or office and then they start driving home in rush hour traffic when some rude person cuts them off in traffic causing them to have to slam on the brakes to avert being in an accident. So all those emotions want to burst out towards the rude driver in a fit of rage. In fact we have all heard too many stories of rode rage now. But with Godly knowledge and understanding the person who was stressed could simply acknowledge the emotion and say something like, “Yes, Lord I’m an feeling angry right now, however I understand there is no point in losing my patience because its not good for my body and it is not going to change the situation I am in. It is better to replace that emotion with a very logical, rational decisions and stay in the peace of God. Thank the Lord you avoided an accident instead. Besides there is something called the IgA which is an antibody secreted as the first line of defense against any invading infections. If you keep your peace your immune system works the way God intended it and you will not be susceptible to infections and diseases. What is really interesting is that if an individual experiences an episode of intense anger or frustration for just 5 minutes time, their IgA level drops 55% in the first hour. That is not good; also it stays dropped below normal for over six hours. Just after 5 minutes of anger or frustration. However if you respond as a child of God should do and keep your peace you are not in danger of this. If you experience an episode of deep appreciation or love for only 5 minutes your IgA levels rise up to 40% above normal and stay elevated for over six hours. You see it is true, that  a hug a day keeps the devil away.
Proverbs 17:,22,”A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”
Now thing is that we serve the Lord and He is supernatural and so we come into agreement and understanding that being rational and making rational decisions includes being in the supernatural where signs and wonders, healing and miracles follow us as we follow after Christ. Basically the part of your brain where the library of you life is kept (amygdala) also stores and collects all these emotions which has a direct communication connected with the pre- frontal cortex. Your pre-frontal cortex is the part of your brain that help causes rational decision to be made. It helps you analyze all the information you have and it quite literally helps advises the emotional part of your brain what to do. Its sort of like one of those advise columnist where you write in your question and wait for the reply. So here you are having a conversation with yourself as you are processing all the information and your prefrontal cortex comes along to help you to deal with that emotion. So your pre- frontal cortex is more then willing to help you replace those toxic, negative emotional perceptions with a logical, rational decision. Maybe you simply come to the conclusion that its best to wait on the Lord to guide you through and no one is pushing you to decide right now. Keeping in mind the Lord leads and the devil drives.
Some research says children’s brains are not fully developed until the age of 25. The connection between the emotional part of the brain (amygdala) and that the pre-frontal cortex is not developed in children until the age of 18, which explains why parents often need to help guide their children’s emotional responses and decision making. Because most people make mistakes when acting on impulse. I can actually think of a number of adults that may not practice using their pre frontal cortex (rational decision maker) and can become overreactive quick easily and get stressed out over minor issues as if the sky was falling. So they might become rather reactive to emotions the enemy uses to dominant their thinking, which is never a good thing.
When you are acting impulsively out of anger things don’t usually turn out so well. It is really imperative that we begin to realise now how all your thoughts impact each other, because only you can control your thought life and prevent unwanted thoughts from overtaking you like a wildfire destroying everything in its path.
Yes we can’t really control the weather and events and circumstances of your day, unless maybe you work for HAARP, and even then you still can’t really control the outcome. However you can control your reactions as a child of God ought to do to all the events and circumstances you must face each day. If you are a child of God we need to act like one all the time.
The Lord tells us in Proverbs 25:28,” He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” That means anything can come and go as it pleases without a passport, and leave a mess anywhere it wants.
The thing is that all our thoughts are so integrated with other thoughts in our brain, it shall take some work and practice to take all our thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ.

Back in England you might see some lovely branches of ivy growing all over the place on established buildings and homes. You might also see some of those leaf stalks which became black and shriveled up. Often the results of some nasty insects and also bacterial that has joined that stem of ivy, starting out as a small light green spots which later turn brown or black and cause damage to the Ivy plant.
In a way our thoughts get all connected like that ivy and we may need to keep weeding out those nasty toxic thoughts of sin that all go against the Holy Word of God. Keeping in mind contrary to popular opinion, the Holy Word of God and the latest scientific research reveal that the links between thoughts are determined by you. Because the Lord designed us with the ability to help design our own brain. We get to choose this day whom we serve moment by moment. In other words this means that when you think about a particular thought, that thought actually receives an invitation or signal so it moves from your non-conscious mind into the conscious part of your mind. The thinking activity of that particular thought takes up actual real a state in your brain. Because through principles of quantum physics it is showing you are dealing with a real force with real particle-like and wave-like behaviour and interactions of energy and matter.
The Lord probably designed science as a way of showing just how awesome all His creation is. The way an artist puts a masterpiece into a frame that complements the work. How many people have bought into the idea that you are product of your family heritage? That you are just a product of their sinful patterns and habits. That you are really just a victim controlled by your genetics and biology so you might as well forget about your dream and visions for a better life.  However, what does the Holy Word of God say to us?
2 Corinthians 3:18,” But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” I dare say that is some incredible encouraging news to share.
If you have spent most of your entire life of building negative toxic thoughts into your brain, helping the devil to build negative sinful strongholds there is good news. Even if today you may actually have a whole forest of toxic thorny memory trees in your brain, I have some awesome news. For the Gospel is the good news! In as little as just 4 days of thinking properly and taking control of your thought life, you can begin to eliminate those nasty thinking patterns and replace them with Godly thinking patterns.

In 21 days of consistently working on thinking about what your thinking about you can remove the thorns from those toxic thorny memory trees and you can create and build new healthy memories over them.

For example if you hear yourself saying,” if only I did (and you can fill in the blank)__________, what if _____I should have,_____ if only I would have,______ what should have happened,______ which are all toxic and rooted in the spirit of fear. For the spirit of fear always wants to project into the future and then replay past mistakes for you. So instead you catch yourself and say ” I choose to not allow these ungodly thought to control my future. Do what Jesus did in the temptations and quote the Scriptures back at the devil properly like Isaiah 43:18,” Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.”
Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Hebrews 12:1,“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Galatians 2:20,“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
The thing is you can You can literally detoxify your brain and change its whole neuro-chemical structure through taking charge of your thought life. Because you control your brain, your brain does not control you.

For example, if you decide to reject all those sinful thoughts of unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, envy and jealousy, fear, fear of the future etc through genuine repentance, releasing all those who done you wrong and forgiving them including yourself, you can actually change that memory and the structure of those thorny memory trees. This is where scientific research has proven the Holy Word of God in the laboratory. Because it has now been scientifically proven that if you choose to reject those toxic thoughts and do what the Lord said instead and mediate on His Word. It bring healing to all your flesh. Purposefully meditating on what is good, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
The Word of God, causes actual chemicals released from those good thoughts so they flow through the thorny memory trees and literally remove the nasty thorns. For example, when you repent for entertaining that spirit of bitterness and you forgive all those who hurt you and did you wrong, the chemicals released from those thoughts will literally cut off the thorns off those thorny memory tree of bitterness. Now the memory won’t totally disappear as it will always be there, because you will always remember what that offence was or who had hurt you and what they did to you. However, because you have forgiven them through Christ’s awesome love that memory tree of bitterness will no longer be able to affect you or make you sick and cause diseases, because it no longer has the thorns that release those toxic chemicals into your blood stream. This is really important to understand. So then when you think of that person or situation where you got wounded in the past you no longer feel that feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach or that high octane ping go off inside of you; whereas before you went before the Lord’s throne of mercy, grace and love and asked for forgiveness and forgave all those concerned, when that situation or person came to mind you could physically feel that emotion of anger and pain rise up within your spirit.

This is how and why we must apply the Word of God in our life and we can apply this understanding to any situation we face where we recognise and discern that we have entertained toxic ungodly thinking. By applying the Word of God, by being a doer and not a hearer only we are able to eliminate the toxic thorny memory trees that were built by entertaining such spirits as the spirit of fear, shame, anxiety, worry, a low self-esteem, guilt, self- hatred, anger, envy and jealousy, rejection and all ungodly spirits that help and support these foul entities. When you purpose in your heart and make a decision to think about things the way the Lord said to think about them, by taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ. You are able to reject all those toxic thoughts and change your thinking to the way that God thinks about these things. By appropriating what the living Word of God instructs us to do you are able to grow new healthy memory trees over the places you eliminated the old toxic thorny memory trees. You will still have the old memory , however it no longer has any power to release toxic chemicals into your blood stream and the emotional pain it caused is also removed simultaneously. In science this process is called “retranscribing those memories neuroplastically.” The Lord called this “renewing the mind” all along.
Romans 12:1,” 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.”

Ephesians 4:23,” And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;”

The Lord designed your brain to have an incredible capacity to change, because anything you wired in you are able to wire back out. You are able to be restored and healed! You are able to literally remodel the toxic memories in your brain as you would remodel an old house and replace anything faulty with something healthy and new simply through changing the way you think and thinking Godly.

 

 

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
