What Do You Think?
Your Thoughts Are Spirits
Penny for my thoughts? Seems like everybody has an opinion these days. Therefore, the value of my thought may be as cheap as a penny. Nevertheless, I believe this blog will be the most valuable bit of info you will get today should you linger. The most dangerous, and/or the most beneficial thing you will do today will be what you chose to think on. The Bible is very clear on this issue, and boldly warns us that “As a person thinketh, so will they be.” Both the kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness are at work exclusively within the confines of trying to reach human minds. Whichever kingdom controls the narrative within your brain, will win the whole thing. So again, this is a war for your thought life, first and foremost. Through the explosion of social media platforms and our hand-held device, we are in a constant state of influence, of both bad and good. This 24/7 world within the digital universe never stops and can overwhelm anyone sucked into the black hole of it all. Ultimately, I believe our generation is in dire straits of having our lives and cultures usurped via this onslaught of online thoughts and plans. This daily deluge of ideas and thoughts coming at us is only increasing. We must understand the dangers it now represents to us and our families. This is a battle for the mind, will, and emotion of mankind. Effectively, whoever is able to get their thoughts into our heads will be the winner of this war. And today, it seems that mankind is losing because we are not choosing which thoughts we allow in.
Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinketh, so is he.”
Such a powerful truth, that whatever we think on will almost always dictate what happens in our lives. This is why both kingdoms are so intent on getting their thoughts into us. Think about it, a thought is a spiritual entity. It has no body, no blood, no voice, yet it has the power to influence you into giving it all the above. This is why it is so critical that we don't let, but rather vet, every thought. Like a bouncer at the door of our minds, we need to learn to restrict who and what enters our head. This is actually what the word thinketh above means. This Hebrew word shar’ar is defined as a walled city with a narrow gate where thoughts are allowed or denied entrance. Another words, we are not supposed to have an open border policy where any and every thought can freely come or go. Instead, we are supposed to set a guard at this portal of our head. We need to put a big bad bouncer at the gate and turn away most thoughts these days. We also need to voluntarily limit or perhaps omit our intake of internet trash. Most of the thoughts you get there is the equivalent of letting a sadistic terrorist into your city. At some point, you will regret that you did not voluntarily vet these bad thoughts at the gate of your mind. So, how do we vet our thought life?
Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Most believers will have heard this verse, but did you realize the connection to our wellness coming first as a thought from HaShem. The expected end of the peace He wants for us all begins with a simple thought. Again, thoughts are very spiritual, and although they have no evidence of material existence, they are the very seed for every need, and are therefore preincarnate spirits. This is why we so need to interrogate every thought at the gate of our mind, to discern which kingdom these spirits (or thoughts) may be coming from. However, it is also very likely you have already let some really bad spirits into your walled city via the gate of your thoughts. But Isaiah tells us about this as well.
Isaiah 55:7-11 Let the wicked forsake their way, and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them return to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
Again, the kingdom of God gains access into your life via the portal of your mind and the gate of your thoughts. These thoughts from HaShem are said here to be His own pre-incarnate Word that can cause our life to flourish and manifest His goodness. But so too does the kingdom of Satan understand this portal into our lives via thoughts, so be aware. An interesting technique used by both kingdoms is that most of these thoughts are unclaimed and even purposely camouflaged so that we do not realize who they are from. If each kingdom can simply impregnate us with their idea or thoughts, so that we begin to think it was our idea or our thought, then it becomes even more acceptable. Once we accept these thoughts, we begin to speak them and share them. Once we speak them enough, we usually start to believe them and will eventually give action or life to these thoughts. Thus both kingdoms mostly work in the invisible realm of the spirit where the impartation of thoughts are the main workings and agenda. Most people have never had an original thought in their head, but are simply being fed transplanted thoughts from one of these two kingdoms. Hashem has long since used his written word and people to spread his thoughts, but Satan today is has likewise become very wise. Using the internet so effectively, he spreads his lies like flies do larva. Meanwhile, mankind for the most part, goes about its daily routine unawares of the ongoing battle for the thoughts of our minds. Think on this today and pray this prayer for the arrest of any evil thoughts you might have let into your mind.
Father, In Yeshua’s name, I thank you for the good thoughts you think for me. Thoughts of peace and good I receive now from your kingdom and welcome into the gate of my city, my mind. Also I pray that you send your forces into my mind and arrest any thought that was not from you that I have wrongly let come into my mind or actions. I forsake these thoughts and return to you, in Yeshua’s name, amen.
Now that you have cleaned out the busy city of your mind and removed all those negative thoughts, you would do well to replace them with Hashem’s thoughts to prevent the vacuum effect. A few years ago, when i began to see this principle of renewing my mind, I was led to a scripture that I have endeavored to understand and implement. Now allow me to first warn you, this is going to challenge your thoughts.
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Yeshua the anointed: who, being in the form of El, thought it not robbery to be equal with El: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.
Effectively, we are told to allow a thought into our city that most believers will see as blasphemous. This thought is that we are now equals with Hashem himself. Yes, the Almighty Deity of all creation has sent His Spirit to you this day (via a thought) saying, “It is ok to see yourself as my equal”. Even as Yeshua thought it not robbery, so too are we invited to allow this thought into our city (mind). This is quite challenging. Most people struggle with their own identity and fumble through their lives in a constant state of identity crisis. However, the Apostle Paul is telling this city of Philippi that we should not think it is robbery, and gives us a glimpse at ourselves as equals with our very own Creator. Think about that as you are sorting through the daily trash inside the devil’s web.
I think it is important for us to entertain the thought that the very reason Yeshua was so anointed was because he allowed this thought (that is is ok to be equal with the Creator) into his head as the first and foremost importance. Perhaps all the healings and unexplainable miracles that he performed were simply the result of first allowing this thought into his mind. Whereas Messiah did not have Pauls’ written letter to the Philippians proclaiming this thought, he did quote from the Psalms something on the same level.
John 10:34 “Is it not written in your law, I said you are gods? If he called them gods to whom the word of Hashem came, and the scripture can not be broken: then why say you to him who the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, that you blaspheme because I said I am the Son of God.
So again, the challenge today is to allow this really big thought into your mind, that you are not just some random being walking aimlessly through your life experience. You are all children of the Most High, who wants you to renew your mind by receiving His thoughts of empowerment and supremacy over every situation in this gift of life. Think on that today and see what comes of it.

Hi Curt, I think it is generally great stuff but I think you take it too far to claim 'we are equal to Hashem'.

I love this. Being working to implement a Holy Spirit guard at my gate as a bouncer.
