“Take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ!”
These words ‘jumped at me’ and I asked, “HOW do I do it?”
Ultimately, to be able to take captive of EVERY thought is: To have the MIND OF CHRIST. Thanks be to God!
And to be able to make every thought obedient to Christ is: To obey God regardless of all circumstances. How marvellous!
I believe it is something that we have to WORK at and the Holy Spirit will help us, IF WE ASK HIM. He is our Spiritual Teacher sent by God to guide us. Hallelujah!
Spiritual warfare is ongoing. Everyone faces it. Christians have the Word of God (that is the Sword of the Spirit) to demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God but [individually] we have to SHARPEN OUR SWORD.
I believe that every Christian has ‘strongholds’ that must be torn down. These spiritual strongholds can only be torn down by God’s power.
Ungodly philosophies hold people in bondage. According to one Bible commentary, the systems of thought that WAR against us are: Arrogant obstacles, lofty opinions, and sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that PREVENT PEOPLE FROM KNOWING GOD. In our day, these systems include the theory of evolution, secular humanism, existentialism, the cults, the occult, and false religions.
Dear Father God,
Thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit. He lives in us. Through Him, we are connected to You. Father God, You are the Source of power that energizes us – spirit, soul and body. Thank You for giving us a brain to think. Our mind is like our CPU [Central Processing Unit] telling us what to do. Our CPU had stored information and experiences from birth. Father, we ask that our minds be renewed so that we do not conform to the patterns of the world but be transformed to the patterns of the Kingdom of Heaven. O yes, let Your will be done in our lives. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!
Signs of the End of the Age
Jesus is warning us, “Watch out!”
