Think right to live right!

Think right to live right!

By Abraham Israel

All the religions in the world system says, ‘To live rightly you need to discipline yourself and change your behavior according to their religious dogmas or instructions without fail.’ In other words it suggests that in order to live a good life, you need to change your behavior and live and act daily in that same way [i.e. which includes the way you relate to God and to people]. This is an absolute erroneous cluttered religious mindset which will push an honest seeker of God to soon become a hypocrite very soon after he tries to do these things in his daily life. Why? Because this man who tries to conform himself to that particular religious law will be influenced by a different pattern of thinking [i.e. evil thoughts in contrast to good thoughts] in his soulish realm (Mark 7:20-23), which is the same for every human being in the natural. Thisese type of soulish thinking is strongly influenced by the world system of governance [i.e. Satan and his cohorts] (Rom 7:14-20; 12:2).

Man is essentially a created eternal spiritual being kept in a physical body with an ever expanding knowledge of his soulish mind based on what he sees and experiences through his five senses
[seeing, smelling, hearing, touching and tasting]. The soul which is directly connected to the physical body works according to what that particular person thinks always. Hence a man is essentially influenced by what he thinks in his mind. The Bible affirms this in Prov 23:7 by saying, “…as a man [he] thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you. But his heart is not with you.” In other words the Bible says only when a man’s behavior becomes in line with what he thinks constantly [i.e. motives in his heart], only then he is truly a man of his word whom you can trust. For this to happen one should train one’s mind to constantly dwell in the good thoughts that come from God and reject evil thoughts in Jesus Name when it comes to get imposed in one’s mind.

Otherwise that person who allows or dwells in the evil thoughts will make that thought to soon become a demonic conception of lust in him. In other words when ever those particular demonic thoughts come, immediately the flesh because of habitual practice will immediately become extremely desirous to fulfill it immediately. This is the way demons will keep people in constant bondage to its whims and fancies. These people who will fulfill such lust will soon become powerless against such strong intense desire that will start to rule them. They will continue to do these things thinking that it is an inbuilt weakness in them. This is an absolute lie of the devil to keep people powerless as long as they live.
If you have any such patterns of thinking say now to the Lord, ‘Dear Jesus, in your name I bind all demonic activities. I take all my thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ and I apply your blood over my mind, thank you for your forgiveness and cleansing in Jesus name. Amen.’ (Luke 10:19-20; 2 Cor 10:5; 1 John 1:7). Now whenever such thoughts Satan tries to re impose over your mind resist it in Jesus Name by saying, ‘I rebuke you devil, you have no rights over my mind. In Jesus Name Go.’ (James 4:7).
Mostly people who play a religious hypocritical game often will speak outwardly as smooth as butter, but inside their heart they will be bitter against other people with various motives like jealousies, lustfulness, wrath, and covetousness….etc. Jesus always warned such hypocritical living by saying, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.(Matt 23:25-28). In other words Jesus was rebuking, exhorting and challenging these two-faced religious hypocrites to change their evil thinking pattern and behave in line with what they really think.
Think of it, if they have behaved in the way they thought inside their mind, people would have stoned and killed them for all their lawlessness. As a pious devoted religious heads they were always fearful of what people might think of them. As the Bible says in Luke 20:19, “And the chief priests and the scribes that very hour sought to lay hands on Him, but they feared the people—for they knew He had spoken this parable against them.” Here we see that the chief priests and scribes were thinking with an intense desire in their heart to hit Jesus and destroy Him, but they were behaving differently on the outside because of the fear of people around them. This is what David called as “…divided in heart or mind…” (Ps 119:113), where you want to do one thing but because of the fear of people around you, you are behaving in a good way outwardly. It is as good and equivalent to you fulfilling it in the natural world because if the people were not around you, you would have done it. This is why Jesus said in Matt 5:21-22, 27-28, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.” “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
All the murders and adultery that ever happened started only with a small evil thought in one’s heart influenced by the spirit world [i.e. Satan and his demonic world]. As Jesus also said in Mark 7:20-23, “And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”” Many people are asking why is all the evil things are happening in this world if God is alive? But the fact that such people do not understand is because all evil which starts in the heart of man which when fulfilled, fills the world with all the evil we see and experience. Like in the days of Noah all the peoples are filled constantly with evil thoughts in which they are desiring to dwell as Jesus prophesied two thousand years ago, thus as things are becoming like a living hell in this planet earth God will very soon step in to the earth to rescue it at Jesus’ second coming and will rule it with an iron hand in righteousness for a millennium (Luke 17:26; Gen 6:5).
Only Godly people who have trained themselves according to the word of God and empowered by the Spirit of God can only behave exactly according to the way they think. Only passionate godly Spirit led men and women can honor God with their lips in sync and in line with their heart, by being very close to the heart of God (Mark 7:6-7). In other words only people who think according to the impulse of the Spirit of God can only have a united heart that will speak in line with the good thoughts that come from God in to their mind constantly. This will give them the liberty to act and behave naturally without fear of what people might think about them. They will be bold enough to express their mind in truth and integrity. They will be humble enough to accept their mistake when they are wrong.
Godly people must train themselves by believing and thinking according to the word of God and should confess with their mouth what they believe to be true. They should train themselves to say and speak what the word of God says as the truth by inculcating this type of thinking pattern. This will bring deliverance and victory in their daily life (Rom 10:10). The Apostle Paul also affirms this when he said, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.” (Phil 4:8-9). Here Paul is suggesting the believer’s to continuously dwell on the thoughts of the goodness of God. All the good things that we see and experience in this world are from God and only from Him. No one is good except God who is the only source of all our goodness in this universe (Matt 5:45; 19:17; Nahum 1:7; James 1:17). Nothing that we enjoy is by chance, but it is absolutely from God who provides all these things to us. So in everything [i.e. no matter how you feel], give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thess 5:18). Always be with an attitude of gratitude for all the things that God has provided in your life. Be satisfied and content with what He has given to you which in itself is a great wealth that you possess (1 Tim 6:6).

In today’s world, it is hard to find, hard to see any good things happening, except a few good things. If we open the news paper and dwell in it for even a short period of time, all the things that our mind will get filled with is nothing but anxiety, fear of unknown, lust and all the depressive things which is the way this Satanically influenced world system is increasingly deteriorating day by day and is driven. The same also applies to other media like television, internet…etc. In such a stressful times such as these, the only place where we can get joy, peace and righteousness is to return to the word of God and meditate upon the promises of God without which there is no hope to have peace in this peace less world of end times.
When we do these things even our words that we will speak to others will give hope to people because it will be filled with grace as a delicious food is seasoned with salt (Col 4:6). Even as we speak in line with what we think in our mind [i.e. ignited minds because of meditating and dwelling on the word of God], our behavior will naturally become in line with the way God wants us to live. Praise the Lord!
The bottom line is ‘Don’t try to think right by trying to be right, instead think right according to the word of God to live right’. Say to the Lord now, ‘Lord Jesus, thank you for your word which has power to transform the way I think. Increase my desire to dwell in your word which will transform my mind to think in the exact way you want me to think so that I will not be conscious of what people might think about me but rather be conscious about what you will think about me. Let your thoughts guide me to take all my decisions that I will be taking in the coming days according to your ways. Thank you for your Joy, Peace and your Righteousness in my life. In your name I pray. Amen and Amen’. Praise the Lord!
