Redemption of our soul
We are all in a process of the redemption of our souls. It is a sanctification process and the renewing of the mind is a key element. So much, has been spoken about it, but I still do not see many people living it. Our responsibility is to give ourselves completely to the process, co-operating with YHVH rather than resisting Him.
Rom12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
We all want to know God’s good, acceptable and perfect will for our lives. How do we obtain this? The answer is: we must renew our minds. As our minds become renewed - we begin to think more like God. Through this we become aware of how He looks at things and we begin to look at things in the same way – and no longer out of our selfish and self-centred ways. We learn to listen more carefully to the voice of Holy Spirit and start to know His heart for us - how He wants us to pray, where He wants us to go and what He wants us to do. And so we can begin to move in His good, acceptable, perfect will for us. That is the place where you find peace of heart and mind.
As our souls receive healing, we become less fearful of what He might expect of us. We grow in trust and confidence, working towards complete and absolute confidence in God. All of this helps us to hear His voice and as we grow in maturity and healing we start to run the race of faith.
How do I do it? I have to get rid of the “dung” as Aldo calls it (the unbelief, doubt, sinful thoughts, anger, wrong believes) in my mind. First, through repentance and then by replacing these thoughts with God’s truths. Paul calls it “renewing the Spirit of your minds”.
Eph 4:23 Be renewed in the spirit of your minds. So as our minds are renewed, it should function more and more like the mind ofChrist.
It is shocking to see how many people operate in New Age where it is all about the improvement of self - my will, my way and my desires – completely self-centred. As children of God we are offered a Christ-centred life. It offers a new self that is being conformed to the image of Christ, taking on His nature, His character, attitudes, believes, likeness and His mind. It does not try to improve the old self, no – the old self needs to die.
2Co10:3-5 For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, 5 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)
Paul instructs us: to pull down the strongholds, to cast down imaginations, to bring every thought into captivity and to use our spiritual weapons to come against every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God - and so we learn that our minds are a battle field. We need to start training ourselves and our children to take up God’s weapons and to use it against anything that would try to keep our thought patterns and habits in the old way of doing. Do you know that fear, worry, hate, bitterness, anger, shame, control – need to be dealt with? You need to discover the root – where it comes from, repent of that, and cast down the stronghold and replace it with the mind of Christ. It can only be done through prayer, repentance and applying the blood of the Lamb.
You have to understand how important is what I say to you today - if the battle is won in the mind - it IS WON! Every time you believe Satan’s lies about yourself and your circumstances - where you get stuck in ungodly believes instead of believing what your Abba says about you – the doors are wide open inviting Satan to come in and control your mind. Ask Abba today, to reveal to you all your ungodly believes. He won’t do it in one day, but as in everything step-by-step. You will be amazed about the kind of wars you are fighting in your mind. As soon as people see the truth –they get free!!! The Truth sets you free.
The truth is what God says about the situation. I started to pray the Glory Light which is Yeshua, over Aldo’s mind - Joh 8:12 Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life. For that matter, to all of our minds, because it is not only him that is fighting the lies about himself, it is all of mankind. Those lies are the bondages, the shackles stopping us from living life in abundance. One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life is when Yeshua shows up in a lie (often a painful memory) and reveals the truth. In one second that person receives freedom and many times healing as well. But, sometimes the lie is so deep and has been repeated so many times that only Holy Spirit can help to get it out of the subconscious mind. The war is between the truth and the lies. The lies can be unbelief or pain even torment in the spirit that you went through but, it is hidden very deeply. Unbelief is a curse out of hell, an unbelieving heart is a sinful heart and cannot be obedient because it is controlled by the old nature and flesh. Unbelief makes God a liar – God is faithful, you can take God at His word.
Eph4:22 -24 Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion; 23 And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], 24 And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God's image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.
People use this excuse: ”God knows my heart – He knows I cannot stop sinning”. I ask you today - what God do you serve? The God of this world? He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God (Eph 2:2). Because the most High God says that He gave you His Spirit of life and that overrules the spirit of death in us (Rom 8). So, when we stand in front of a temptation, we should just call out for His help and His Spirit within us will help us. We have to fight the temptations and walk in Holiness. Even though we know we are not perfect, and will never be, and that we all will still make mistakes - we have Holy Spirit to help us in everything, even to say no to sin. Through this we will see the lies and hear the lies and the cries of our own flesh. We will recognize them in our minds and will be able to deal with them! Don’t be deceived – that’s the name Satan would like to hang around your neck. Or is yours Double life? Immaturity? Greed? Selfish? Lust? Pride? Who are you? – Let’s stand up and take these shackles of our necks and start renewing our minds – walking in victory! Taking on Yeshua’s nature. To know about YHVH’s grace will not make you choose the right way, it is having the mind of Christ, a sound mind, a pure heart and a love for Him that leaves you no choice but to obey Him in all He asks of you!
This is a step-by-step process. I see and learn so many things from Wisdom through Aldo’s hand. Humbly I bow down every day and thank Yeshua for this journey of faith. I am excited to see the exhilaration in the spirit. I believe as we follow the cloud of the move of Holy Spirit that He is busy leading us into places we have never been before and that the enemy so badly wants to keep us out of and away from these places by keeping our minds in sin. Satan wants you to be drawn by that sin, always – no, please fight it! The walk of sanctification will be vital in the preparation time for YHVH to release His Spirit in a new way, wonders, healings, restorations and all who were waiting for Him to answer their prayers – Yes, now is the time to be ready because all the tent pegs will be taken out and He says run My child – why do you pray only for your family? Ask of Me the world! When the cloud of His presence moves – we have to move. Don’t wait for a move of a denomination, move with Holy Spirit! You have to leave all the old behind, so that He can make all new. Many will lose out because they hold on to their knowledge. God will give and is busy giving new instructions to His warriors – get in alignment, get fit, get ready, start praying, the cloud is moving. Nothing will be the same as yesterday – allow Holy Spirit to deposit a new thing in you – get into the gates and receive your blessings. The blessings will be only poured out in the gates and few are there because they still fight doctrine of man. Don’t keep yourself busy with people that want to argue. You will do everything from one place and that is from His Spirit, in Him. If you are not willing to walk in the spirit you will not be able to see the cloud and follow it. It is a new place, a place of victory in Him, from there we will fight and we will fight like Debora in the heavenlies. (This is what we start teaching now in the Spirit School). It is all about generational change – you are the one that needs to pray and cleanse your time line and the sound portals that have been defiled over the generations – and that is one of the reasons why we don’t hear God’s voice. You are the one who needs to open up your generational wells and open new wells with Holy Spirit. It is all a new understanding bringing with it a heartfelt cry – why did I never believe that I need my spiritual senses open? - because you will not see or experience without them being cleaned and your mind renewed – as you stand in the gates you will see all the earth are ready and those who take up their places will all be in a place of renewing their first love.
How exited I am to know the Living God is teaching us all step-by-step. Just keep on asking and loving Him.
Love Retah and family
