PULLING DOWN THE STRONG HOLDS OF THE DEVIL

OVER OUR MIND AND THOUGHT LIFE!!!

 

MAY 20, 2012

 

The primary place of attack by Satan starts in our mind and our thought life.

We as Christians don't realize this fact.  Our thoughts are mostly filled with television programs, news of the day, our conversations about things that are going on in the world, our jobs, our finances, our friends and the list goes on and on.

The Word of the Lord in Philippians 2:5 says; "Let This Mind Be In You, Which Was Also In Christ Jesus.

We Are To Have The Mind Of Christ...

 

2nd CORINTHINS 10:3 - 5

(3).  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh.

(4).  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

(5).  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Satan wants to defeat us as Christians.  He wants to deceive us, he wants to vex us, and keep us from the truth for he knows that the truth will make us free.

We are to pull down Satan's strong holds and cast down his thoughts that produce wicked imaginations.  Wicked imaginations are from the Devil!!  Carnl thoughts are Satan's stong hold over our mind.  He wants to keep people in bondage.  That is why it is so important to get into the word of God and allow his word to get in us.

PROVERBS 4:20 - 23

(20).  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

(21).  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

(22).  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

(23).  Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the isues of life.

JOSHUA 1:8

(8).  This book of the law shall not  depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:  for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Matthew 11:28 - 30 

(28).  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

(29).  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

(30).  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

ISAIAH 26:3

(3).  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed in thee:  because he trusteth in thee.

ISAIAH 55:6 - 9

(6).  Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

(7).  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts:  and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

(8).  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

(9).  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higer than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

 

ROMANS 12:1 - 2

(1).  I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

(2).  And be not conformed to this world:  but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
