Replaying Thoughts

What You think About With Your Mind Causes Changes In Your Brain and Body

We all have much to think about and consider each day, moment to moment as we move ever closer to the cosmic grand finale. We read in 1 Thessalonians 4:17,” Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

Once we true spirit-filled believers are taken up with Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua there is nothing restraining the kingdom of darkness for a season until we return with the Lord Jesus/Yeshua on flying white horses. The Lord shall then restrain all evil and bring true peace on earth. Being an equestrian, I am especially looking forward to that eventuality of being part of Christ’s Eternal Cavalry. Indeed it will be a very exciting and impressive cosmic ending as all of the performers visible and invisible will come onto the world stage for the grand finale. We read in Titus 2:13,“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” (Victory in Jesus my Saviour, forever!) In the meantime we are to carry on with the great commission to share Christ’s love, heal the sick and cast out demons in Jesus/Yeshua’s almighty name whilst studying to show ourselves approved and helping others understand the unprencented times we now live in.

During the years of public ministry we observe the Lord Jesus/Yeshua’s tremendous impact on his disciple John, who brought about sanctification in an exemplified way. John quickly appears to have accepted Christ’s reproofs and made the necessary adjustments in the process. Seems to me John was able to recognise his own deficiencies, and was humbled by the revelations he was entrusted with, along with the mercy, grace and love of our saviour. What could we learn from such lessons of humility and patience if we would fully embrace the Gospel truth at such levels to trust the Lord for every detail of our lives?

At the Cross as the Lord Jesus/Yeshua greatly suffered excruciating agony for the sins of this fallen world, it was John,” the disciple standing by, whom he loved”, that he chose to care for his mother the blessed Virgin Mary. (John 19:26-27) I imagine the Lord Jesus/Yeshua didn’t want his own mother to watch of his suffering and had his trusted disciple John escort her away from the traumatic drama unfolding. Considering the fact all his other disciples had already abandon him at this point. Whatsoever we are dealing with presently the takeaway message for us is that our Lord works all things together for good as proven by his glorious resurrection 3 days later. This again is why we must walk in faith and not go by how things may look. (2 Corinthians 5:7) It is also not productive to keep reliving past mistakes you have repented for as if you could redo them again and have a different results. Whenever you find yourself dwelling on thoughts like, “if only I would have, should have, or could have,” your headed down a fearful poisonous pathway.

Every time you meditate repeatedly on a similar thoughts you are impacting your life. By continually replaying that thought it is actively changing your brain and body chemistry in either a positive or negative way. For the true spirit-filled believer bringing every thought, (all 30.000 to 70.000) a day into captivity under the obedience of Christ takes some practice, faith and some work. This is why we are instructed in 2 Corinthians 10:5,”Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

Why allow just any thought to wander about in your mind? That is rather dangerous on many levels, and yet so many people ignorantly participate in such practice which is basically equivalent to leaving all your doors and windows open and unlocked so anyone or thing can come and go as it pleases. Most people probably wouldn’t allow wild animals to roam about their homes any more then they willingly allow a group of programmed terrorist/assassins to be invited in to steal, kill and destroy them. Yet when you allow just any thought such freedom this is in effect what you are doing.

Seems to me the devil and his demons have figured out that all they have to do is send someone an unclean thought, feeling or vain imagination, and if they accept it like a fish grabbing a bated hook, all the devil has to do is reel you in and watch you self-destruct. Keep in mind, the power of the Holy Spirit in you is always greater than any spirit of fear, stress and anxiety that tries to come against you! We read in Romans 1:21,”Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,”

“Vain” imaginations most likely be referring to anything that is pointless and profitless. For example, anything that exalts self like a spirit of pride. If your thinking is skewed by social engineering it will impact your behaviours so even anything rooted in truth through the spirit of pride becomes perverted by vain imaginations which renders it a lie in the end. For example someone who thinks their better then others who may be less fortunate. Luke 18:13,”And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.” The Holy Scriptures tells us that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Luke 6:45,” A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”

The Lord designed you to be able to understand, love and help each other. We read in James 2:18,” Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” Staying in faith means staying in the Word of God so the Word of God stays in you. Seems if we must work daily then let us work for the Lord Jesus/Yeshua and do as He instructs us so we shall be blessed by meditating on whatever is true, pure, lovely, of good report and praise worthy. (Philippians 4:8) Because your brain is going to convert all these thoughts into a reaction that is going to release healing molecules and produce health in your mind and body, soul and spirit as a result as you do. The Lord even tells us in Proverbs 17:22,” A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Keeping a happy heart is good medicine and in fact better then medicine because a cheerful mind works supernatural healing in your body. Trusting the Lord Jesus/Yeshua for everything and every detail of your life causes your kidneys to release a substance called DHEA which carries the emotion of joy so your heart releases a chemical called ANF which carries the emotion of peace, bringing healing spiritually, emotionally and physically to you.

Many thoughts may seem harmless at first, but in this fallen world often subtle harmless thoughts can becomes poisonous, as we might observe from seeing how the devil tricked Eve in the garden to question if God really said what He means, and means what He said! All thoughts we entertain can become spiritually, emotionally and physically dangerous if we do not capture each one to the obedience of Christ! Best to ask for every thought you entertain to produce a valid passport before you allow just any thought to come wandering about in your mind for an extended period of time. Because no one, no spirit, no thought can stand before the Lord Jesus/Yeshua who is all knowing and all powerful and get away with lying in front of Him! Trust me on that!

When you continually listen to those poisonous thoughts which often come as feelings of dread and fear, of anxiety, and self-hatred, of self-condemnation, rejection, of self-rejection, self-pity, of anger and rage, unforgiveness, bitterness, envy and jealousy all the way to listening to spirits of murder with your tongue against others and yourself, how do you think your body reacts?

It is proven in the Holy Word of God and through medical and scientific research now that your body is secreting chemicals and hormones in response to those spiritual attacks that are counterproductive to your health and steal your supernatural peace the Lord Jesus/Yeshua wants you to have and enjoy. (John 14:27)

Your body can only respond to what your spirit and mind is telling it and your brain is converting all those thoughts into a physical reactions and physical mental real-estate that is leading you to prosper in health or to experience the development of various sickness and diseases in your body. The Lord clearly tells us we must take care of our thought life. Proverbs 25:28,” He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”

Which means anything can come and go as it pleases and make a tremendous mess anywhere it wants because you won’t keep your supernatural armour on and stand guard to protect your spirit, soul, mind and body as you are commanded to do. Yes it is true God is in ultimate control, but he gave you free will so He will not control your thought life, you must do that part and the Lord shall do the rest!

After many years of study I am persuaded that Papa God does everything by prayer and nothing much without it. Therefore we ought to keep pressing in and simply believe His Word in our hearts for that miracle in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua. Philippians 4:6,” Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27,” My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God! 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!

One Response to “Replaying Thoughts”

  1. Matthew Perri June 4, 2017 at 4:15 pm #

    Whose voice are you replaying – Jesus or someone else?
    Happy Pentecost 2017 !

    God has not changed, and neither has the text of “The Bible”.
    I am one of “those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” [Revelation 12:17]
    No I’m not perfect without sin, and No I don’t know everything now. I didn’t know everything 7 years ago either – but I have grown and learned new things about God and His Word in the past 7 years, as is normal for a growing believer.

    “God’s commandments” are found in the Law of Moses and the Prophets, which Jesus came to FULFILL, (not to abolish, as the false apostle Paul the Pharisee taught.)
    “The testimony of Jesus” is the voice of Jesus, (The “Red Letters,”) recorded by the 11 faithful witnesses, the True Apostles that Jesus personally appointed and trained for over 3 years. Only 3 of these men wrote Scripture in the Bible – Matthew, John and Peter.

    (Mark was intimately connected with Peter since the beginning of the Church, and he acted as scribe for Peter and other Apostles who were illiterate at in their younger years. Mark could be understood as “the first core teachings of Peter and the other Apostles”. It is an observation of fact that much of Matthew is simply copied from Mark. Matthew built on Mark’s work, using it as a “backbone,” and filling out more background details, and references to The Law, The Prophets, and Psalms, etc. in a meticulous, more comprehensive way.
    Thus, Matthew was providing a second written witness, confirming the testimony of Jesus.)

    In practical terms, regarding texts of the Bible, that means that the most important words are the words of Jesus recorded by The Apostles Matthew and John (closely followed by Mark) – in my view. No one in the pages of Bible ever said that all Scripture is EQUAL. No one. Nowhere.

    My view is very similar to the traditional Orthodox view of the texts of Scripture for almost 2000 years. (Eastern Orthodox). They elevate the 4 Gospels above all other Scriptures, giving the 2 highest places of honor to the Gospels of Matthew and John – and they have a special high place for Revelation too.

    I can back up my view with plenty of Scripture – here is just one, written by the Apostle Peter- 2 Peter 3:2. Peter doesn’t point to himself, or his own words, or “all Scripture” or “The Bible”, Peter doesn’t claim his own words are “the word of God”, and he doesn’t claim that he doesn’t need a second witness. (And Peter certainly doesn’t point to the words of some other man, a Pharisee at that, -Paul- and say that this other man’s word is “the word of God.”)

    You can read Peter’s advice for yourself- then open your Bible to Matthew, John, Revelation, and Mark, and listen to Jesus for yourself!
