It is not what you think; it is what CHRIST thinks in you!!!!!!! “I DIED to the law, that I might LIVE to God. I have been crucified WITH CHRIST; it is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me” Galatians 2:19-20
” As a man thinks in his heart, so he is” Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
This exact verse in the KJV is a key, so I wonder why it is NOT in most other versions? things that make you go hmm? What we think in our heart is crucial. We don’t manifest every whim or thought that passes through our mind unless we BELIEVE every thought that comes into our mind, take it to heart, talk about it, give it legs, ponder it, spend time reflecting on it, imagining scenarios concerning it, dreaming of it, worrying about it, getting WORKED UP about it, having an emotional reaction to it, etc. A thought that triggers our unconscious emotional body is given the FUEL to start a fire that burns us and those who are projected against, blamed, judged, scoffed at, resented, bitter or unforgiving towards.
“These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions (anger, lust, revenge), loud-mouthed…scoffers…setting up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit” Jude 1:16
“In their dreamings they defile the flesh, reject the authority of Christ, and revile the glorious ones…these men revile whatever they do not understand (unaware, unconscious), and by those things that they know by INSTINCT as IRRATIONAL ANIMALS DO, they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they walk in the way of Cain, and abandon themselves for the sake of error, and perish in their rebellion. These are BLEMISHES…boldly carousing, looking after themselves (not relying and depending totally on Christ, the counterintuitive HIGHER WAY OF GOD with HIGHER THOUGHTS OF GOD)…carried along by the winds; fruitless, TWICE DEAD, uprooted (not rooted and grounded in Christ who is Love); WILD WAVES…foam of their own shame; WANDERING STARS for whom the nether gloom of darkness has been reserved for ever…ungodly with deeds of ungodliness which they commit in such an ungodly way, and of all the HARSH THINGS which ungodly sinner speak against” Jude 1:8-15
As we THINK in our HEART, so are we! This is why it is IMPORTANT to become awake, aware, alert, examine our thoughts, pay attention to what you are thinking, observe carefully what thoughts precede negative emotions or feelings, and what thoughts precede addictive behavior or doing what you don’t want to do! What is in your heart is key to stumbling or conquering! We are MORE THAN conquerors IN CHRIST, his Christ Spirit in us!!!!!!!
Those who speak of Christ and God but have hidden darkness or hidden agendas in their heart, will show their true colors eventually by their fruit or lack there of. As we think in our heart, so we are! Look at what is manifesting in your life and if you do not like what you see, look to your heart, and make sure you have not only invited Christ but RECEIVED HIM in all his fullness: the height, depth, length and breadth into your INNER being, your innermost part!
Oswald Chambers said that conversion is “the effort of a roused human being” to TURN towards God, but it is NOT salvation. “The ONLY SIGN that a man is saved is that he has RECEIVED something from Christ Jesus” and “When a man is BORN AGAIN, he KNOWS it because he has RECEIVED something as a GIFT from Almighty God and not because of his own decision…Salvation means that we are brought TO A PLACE (in consciousness) where we are ABLE TO RECEIVE…then there is a SECOND mighty work of GRACE — INHERITANCE…and SANCTIFICATION…a REGENERATED SOUL (heart, mind, motivation)…to IDENTIFY totally with Christ”
As you think in your heart, SO YOU ARE! Think Christ!
A new revelation I had was “think in the heart” is also “eat in the heart” as the mouth and the heart are linked and what the mouth speaks proceeds from the heart. Before we invite and RECEIVE Christ in our heart, we eat/think as the world and the spirit of the world eats/thinks in our heart. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately corrupt; who can understand it? ‘I the LORD search the mind and try the heart, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings'” (Jeremiah 17:9-10). When we EAT the Word we are already made clean (John 15:3 “You are already made clean by the word which I have spoken to you“). When you KNOW Christ IN your heart, you can eat of the tree of life in the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7) and be “like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and DOES NOT FEAR when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is NOT ANXIOUS…for it does not cease to bear fruit” Jeremiah 17:7-8
Meditating on the Word in your heart’s secret place with God, the sacred, holy, still, silent place of the Mind of Christ in your heart (green pastures, still water, paths of righteousness, restored soul Ps 23:1-3) , chewing/thinking/meditating on the MEAT of the Word, eating and drinking TRUTH and LIFE, has a completely different effect than worrying, fear, a troubled heart about the cares of this world, stressed, anxious, wavering, doubting, skeptical, suspicious, ruminating on wrongs or offenses against you in your heart. “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” “Take heart”
Let the Mind of Christ in your heart, think as Christ to manifest and express Christ! As you think in your heart, so you are!
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock (note the dead Jesus on the crucifix does not knock, nor the Jesus lying in the tomb, but the resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus STANDS and knocks for YOU to HEAR HIS VOICE and OPEN to RECEIVE Him); if any one HEARS MY VOICE and OPENS THE DOOR [of his heart], I will COME IN and EAT WITH HIM, and HE WITH ME. He who CONQUERS, I will grant to SIT WITH ME on my throne as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne” Revelation 3:20-21
Eat and drink Christ in your heart and become what you eat! rivers of Living Water that turns to the best wine in our body; transforms us into Christ-likeness as his Bride at his Marriage Feast! Eat and drink Christ in your heart, identify with Christ, have the higher mind, thoughts and ways of Christ in your heart and AS YOU THINK IN YOUR HEART, SO ARE YOU! Think Christ! TAKE IN CHRIST into your spirit and soul and body; the TWO become ONE new creation! the dividing wall torn down! unveiled by Christ so the King of glory may COME IN! Our body prospers AS OUR SOUL PROSPERS!
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers” 3 John 1:2 (KJV)
Our soul is our three-part MIND, HEART, and MOTIVATION! When we bring our thoughts down from our head into our heart, and bring our motivation UP from our belly to our heart, with Christ IN OUR HEART, our SOUL PROSPERS and our BODY PROSPERS as a result or effect of way we THINK in our heart!!!!!!!
“A tranquil mind gives life to the flesh!” Proverbs 14:30
The KEY to LIFE and LIFE ABUNDANT is your SOUL PROSPERING with Christ Jesus in you, the hope of glory!!!!!!! As you think in your heart, so are you! Think Christ! Identify only with Christ in you! manifest His glory for the glory of our Father!!!!!!!
