Imaginations Pathways

Imaginations Pathways

Papa God, Holy Spirit we give you permission to do what ever you have to do with us today. We  hunger and thirst for the fullness of your Glory. That your holy joy overtake us and that we enter into your supernatural presence and are able to stay there and worship and pray without ceasing always. We sense Papa God your Glory is here to disarm demonic kingdoms in Jesus name. That we are here in your atmosphere that your glory overtake us like the centurion, just say the word Lord and heal and restore your people as you decide.That we can profess and decree things in your name and they shall come to pass. That we can have intimacy with you and boldly come into your throne room and make our request known. That we will not miss when we pray- because we believe so we can receive. That we can think and act and speak like our Lord Jesus. That we can enter into the next level. That we decrease so you increase with us and that Your signs and wonders and miracles that follow us everywhere we go. That we see more creative miracles. Because we invite you Holy Spirit to come and hover over us in Jesus name. That your Holy Spirit moves in us and through us. That we minister in your Glory, that you have anointed us to do. That we operate in your time and in your space.Like the widow who gave her last meal to Elisha and you blessed her and multiplied her provision.  As Jesus asked and you multiplied the loafs and fishes.  As you feed your people with Mana from Heaven.Lord we ask and believe for that today.That we can have all the promises you have promises us. That we meet all your conditions to receive. That we can put on the sacrifice of praise, we can give and sow into the kingdom sacrificially taste and see the Lord is good.We thank you Lord for all you do for us for food and clothes and a roof over our head, but Lord we do want to walk under an open window of Heaven. We ask that you help prepare our hearts to receive what ever you have for us. That we do things that are pleasing to you.Thank you for forgiving when we miss it Lord and that we again forgive everyone including ourselves that you wash us with the water of your word each day and cleanse our souls and spirits and our flesh.That one day we do hear You say, “Well done good and faithful servant”.We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and that our nation turns it heart back to you. That we be accounted worthy to escape those things which are coming upon the earth. Amen and Amen.

 

If you have your Bible please open to Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

This day let us be even more balanced. Instead of carrying about a heavy suitcase with all our stuff in it.  Lets stop and give it all to the Lord who said to give Him all our burdens.So we are no longer struggling trying to carry something too heavy.

Matthew 11: 27All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

This New Year I pray we are all able to stay balanced by going extreme in every thing that the Lord gives us to carry then. Extreme in worship, in praise, in giving, in acts of Agape love.  Extreme in believing and receiving so that signs and wonders and miracles follow us as we follow after the Lord. I pray we are extreme in our love of God.

That we be radical as our Lord is consider a radical. He is our example let us follow after Him.  If we want the blessings let us do everything Papa God’s way.  Let us stop listening to the lies of the devil and believe the report of the Lord. Amen. Stop blaming someone else and get on with your life find out what the Lord wants to bless you with and start walking in it.

I have heard too many people say to me, I can believe God can do anything, but why would He do it for me? Then they go on to tell of all the problems that are causing them such misery in their life. Today we are going to address this issue and learn to apply God’s truth to over rule the devils lies.

When you meet the conditions the Lord gives us in the Bible the promises are there for you.

2 Corinthians 10: 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

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

 5Casting 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;

 6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

 7Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ’s, even so are we Christ’s.

What Is The Definition Of The Word Imaginations?

OXFORD DICTIONARY says

imagination, n.

1 a mental faculty forming images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.

2 the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.

3 the process of imagining.

World net dictonary says the Definition is

i•mag•i•na•tion

i•mag•i•na•tions           Plural

NOUN

1.ability to visualize: the ability to form images and ideas in the mind, especially of things never seen or experienced directly

2.creative part of mind: the part of the mind where ideas, thoughts, and images are formed

3.resourcefulness: the ability to think of ways of dealing with difficulties or problems

“used real imagination in designing the experiment”

4.creative act: an act of creating a semblance of reality, especially in literature

I found the WORDNET DICTIONARY( has a very worldy view)

Noun imagination has 3 senses

1.    imagination(n = noun.cognition) imaginativeness, vision – the formation of a mental image of something that is not perceived as real and is not present to the senses; “popular imagination created a world of demons”; “imagination reveals what the world could be” is a kind of creative thinking, creativeness, creativity

has particulars: fictitious place, imaginary place, mythical place, fancy, fantasy, phantasy, dream, dreaming, imaginary being, imaginary creature.

2. Can anyone say New Age thinking here? So innocent people may fall prey to the idea that the devil is just make believe. This is what the devil wants people to imagine.

So basically The English Language defines “imagination” as the formation of a mental image or concept of what is not real or present. It is also a mental image or idea. The Greek word for “imagination” is “logismos” (pronounced log-is-mos), meaning reasoning, conscience, imagination or thought. Imagination comes from the root word “image.” Images can come from someone’s words, thoughts, or visions. We often speak in word images when trying to get someone to understand us. Jesus used parables this way to bring people into understanding.  These images all seem to come to us through different brain waves. And as you may know now that means they can have their origins of influence on us in the natural from things people may say or do to us,  or when through Theta brain waves which is where we connect spiritually as we hear from Papa God, or from the lying devil and demons.

Words and thoughts are so important, because they form images in us and who ever said stick and stones can break my bones but names can never hurt me was delusional. Many of the words that you hear strengthen the thoughts or images that you entertain. If a negative or doubt filled words are what you hear mostly, then it strengthens those negative thoughts and feelings and emotions. It is building up strongholds for the enemy.

Our thoughts and emotions shape our minds as they stimulate the formation of every thought which builds networks or neural pathways in our brains. The Lord tells us to take our thoughts captive for a good reason because we will either reinforce old pathways or initiate new ones.

Just as if you were to continue to exercise each day your muscles will gain strength, so does our neurons build up in strengthen the more we think. The more you think on the Word of God the healthier you will be. The more you think on toxic worldly things the more your strengthen the ingredients for sickness and disease and all manner of problems in your life. However as we have been teaching if  you mostly hear positive, and faith filled words, then it strengthens all those thoughts and feelings and emotions releasing all sorts of good chemicals into your body and that helps produce health and all manner of blessings. The Word of God heals.

Proverbs 4:20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

The images that you decided to receive are what causes what you  believe, and that is really a part of your faith.  Our imaginations are those things we mentally  entertain in our thought life which will manifest things just like a child in the womb will be born at some time.

Which is why it is so vital we learn to think about what we are thinking about. It is from all the thoughts in our imagination, that we eventually  begin to act out what we have seen there.

Recent medical research shows that DNA actually changes shape according to our thought life, how amazing is that to see now according to 2 Corinthians 10:5 As people entertain negative thoughts giving in to fear of tomorrow which hasn’t even happened yet, (as the spirit of fear always projects into the future) that negative toxic thinking actually changes the wiring in your brain which compromises your immune system. That is what the spirit of fear is trying to do, kill steal and destroy so 80 to 95% of all sickness is starting in your thought life. Its time to fight back trust the Lord and stay in Faith!

For example if a man decides to give into temptation and entertain thoughts of pornography it  will eventually manifest somewhere and then he will reap what he sows. It can easily lead him into adultery if he is married and worse things will come upon him then. A woman’s version would be romance novels.

Jesus told us if you so much as lust after a women you have committed spiritual adultery. Science is now showing that when you are imagining doing something, that pretty much exactly the same brain areas and circuits are activated as if you were actually doing the activity for real. Which the Lord Jesus said all along.Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

You have about 30,000 to 70.000 thoughts a day. Through an uncontrolled thought life, we are helping create the conditions for illness; we basically make ourselves sick!  The Bible tells us to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ in 2 Corinthians 10:5 or we suffer the consequences.

So our thoughts and emotions actually help shape our minds as they stimulate the formation of thought networks those neural pathways in our brains, again you must understand that every thought has to travel a pathway of faith or of fear and that means they will either reinforce old programming and old pathways or they will initiate new ones. Which plays into the fact its takes about 21 days to form a new habit.  Tearing down old toxic strongholds and hopefully establishing new healthy ones.

Research is showing that the spirit of fear that God did not give you, all on its own, triggers more than 1,400 known physical and chemical responses and activates more than 30 different hormones.The Lord said in places like Matthew Chapter 18 if you don’t forgive others He can not forgive you.If the Lord can’t forgive you how can he heal you then? The wages of sin is still death according to Romans 6:23

Has anyone ever wondered why the Lord even gave us an Imagination? Well that would be using your imagination as well.Just maybe Papa God gave us an imagination like He has to be able to conceive and conceptualize His vision for us. Before a thing can be manifested or understood. The film screen in your  minds eye where your imagination begins to form allows Papa God the opportunity to speak to us. Especially when you are staying humble before Him and completely submitted to our Lord.It is then the Lord is able to give us  the vision that He wants us to receive, so we can believe, and  can be  manifested, by mixing our faith  with the Holy Word of God.

John 14:12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Now having the Faith to do anything we really need comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God

 Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Papa God uses the imaginations of people to give them His Word, the promises the Lord has given us is still for us today if we meet His conditions to receive them.  The promises are there for us so we  can have the faith to receive  His vision for us to have them.  According to your faith be it done unto you.

Matthew 9:27And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. 28And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. 29Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. 30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it. 31But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.

You would think after they receive such an amazing gift of sight they would have at lest obeyed the Lord. The Lord is still healing people of blindness today. There are countless testimonies to consider and miracles healings. If you need one do not give up keep pressing in with the Lord until you experience the full manifestation. Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise He full of amazing grace and is patient toward you, He does not want anyone to perish for eternity, but that all should recognize issue in our life and  come into that place of repentance before Him.

Before the flood of Noah we read in Genesis 6:5  And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that EVERY IMAGINATION OF THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART WAS ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY.

Then after that flood and the world was repopulated we read about the Tower of Babel and man’s vain imaginations getting him into great trouble again with the Lord.

 Genesis 11:6  And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have IMAGINED to do.

Now as we are in the last days we read in

Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

As long as we breath we are  processing and building thoughts all day long, which become physical realities inside our brain. After you cease to breath you will still process thoughts throughout eternity. When we rest and sleep at night we are also processing the thoughts we collected during the day but in a different sort of way.

When we fall asleep and dream we enter into a time of  REM sleep  which stands for (rapid eye movement).  We all think in are own unique ways just like we all have different finger prints and no two snow flakes are the same. All people are designed to dream in your own unique way as well ,which means that there are no predictable patterns. No matter what modern psychology and Pharaohs prophets may say. You are going to need to Holy Spirit to give you understanding just as he gave Joseph.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Our dreams involve thinking about abstract ideas that are represented visually, so they can be confusing. Unless the Holy Spirit reveals the meaning to you. I admit as an artist having sought to paint along the ideals of the Pre-Raphaelites  I have never been very keen on abstract expressionism although I do appreciate surrealism when it is done well. Still we have to deal with these abstract and surrealistic dreams.

Most dreams are simply said, are still thoughts in a different biochemical state. It is a way for us to continue focusing on the same issues that concern us while we are awake, but in a different way. Perhaps the Lord can explain things to us in our dreams that He may have a harder time getting us to focus on whilst we are awake?

Dreams can also be helpful for problems solving. Many people have stated they received some ideas or invention though a dream. Throughout history, you can find accounts of prophets, artists, inventors, writers and scientists solving all sorts of  problems and receiving answers in their dreams.  From the Biblical accounts to Sir Paul McCartney claming he wrote his famous song yesterday in a dream to Dr. Otto Loewi dream which gave him his theory of chemical transmission of the nervous impulse that gave him the Nobel Prize! I pray you all have good productive dreams and you stay in the light even when its dark.

As evil needs ignorance which is darkness to survive in just like a fish needs water to live in and we need air to breath.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Again we are just a bunch of chemicals strung together. Neurochemically speaking, when we are awake we all need a specific amount of serotonin and norepinephrine to stay healthy and be in health and that help us line up our thoughts so we are able to logically process all the sensory input coming at us from the outside world. Then the Lord designed us to have  certain bursts of acteylcholine as something captures our attention that we focus on and store as a thought.

As we sleep at night, the chemical reaction of acetylcholine production is quite active and it basically begins helping us to sort through and then consolidate our memories. Just like in the day as we all must continually be picking out what is important and what is not in our minds, however when the production of serotonin and norepinephrine is shut down, this appears to be what introduces the element of peculiarity into our dreams.

Although some of us are rather peculiar during are waking hours.

The Lord tells us as a Christian we are peculiar to the world and that is good to know.

1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

What Is God Trying To Write On The Imaginations Of His People?

The Word of God says that you shall cast out devils and lay hands on the sick and they shall recover Mark 16:17-18. John 14:12 tells us we are suppose to do things as Jesus did them and greater things. If we can just get to do what Jesus did I think most of us would be more the satisfied.

That we have a life and a life more abundant, that we are a  blessed people a royal priesthood.  Every born again believer is one of Papa God’s chosen people. This is the image that God wants to write on your imagination.

Papa God’s Word says that God shall supply all of your needs according to His riches and glory (Philippians 4:19), Is there anyone richer then our Father in Heaven?  Truly the Lord is never short of cash, nor is he worried about the economy at present. He sees everything and He has a good plan to bless those who meet His conditions and worship Him in spirit and in Truth. Isn’t that the image Papa God wants to imprint upon your imagination.

The Word of Lord says that all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer believing, you shall receive (Matthew 21:21-22), that’s what Papa God wants you to begin to imagine and think on. Trade in your negative evil thoughts for holy godly ones. Amen

Papa God’s Word says that all things are possible to him that believes (Matthew 19:26),  So that would suggest in the strongest terms possible you need to believe before you can receive.

Papa God’s Word says that by Jesus Stripes you were healed (I Peter 2:24), that’s what Papa God wants you to keep imagining until you receive the complete  manifestation of your healing or restoration. Imagine Papa God will bless you , its easy if you try.

That is why people like Smith Wigglesworth started every meeting with Only Believe! And signs and wonders and miracles followed him.

Mark 5: 35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? 36As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. 39And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 40And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. 41And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. 42And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

When people hear about death, they will naturally imagine that nothing can be done, that its all over now. Good night nurse! Game over. However here we see the Lord Jesus said “only believe”,

Jesus was obviously trying to get the father of this child who had died, to imagine or believe what God would do.  Could it be because Jesus knew that if this bloke imagined and believed that death was the total permanent ending of his child’s life, then that is what he was going  to receive?

However if he  would dare to imagine and believe the ability and power of Papa God to resurrect, then that’s what he would receive.

Only believe that means cast out all spirits of doubt and fear. Only believe the Word of God. Don’t exalt any other thought or image from any other place. Casting down every high that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God. If you continue in His word you will know the truth and it will make you free.

We are told to capture every thought to the obedience of Christ. If you really do that you would never be stressed and fearful and murmuring and complaining again.  Just imagine that if you will, no pun intended. Because when you obey the Lord you will be blessed.

Consider this we do not know how far space continues to expand. Perhaps we do not really no how small things go either? When you split the smallest atom known at this time in this world that there is still one more particle inside which would appear to be a vibrating sound wave?

I found that in the Hebrew the word dust may be translated from the word “Aphar”, and it may not really mean dust but the smallest created particle.

When the Lord  spoke a sound and took the dust to form Adam could that actually mean He spoke Adam into being as He created  other things in the Genesis account as a sound wave?

There are many sub-atomic particles – the muon is one of such particles.  We have no idea where or when we reach the limit if there is one – or if our understanding is limited by our ability to measure things properly.

There is an ongoing debate about particles verses waves – it was first highlighted with light.  Photons are a discretization of light propagation and can be used to describe it just as can waves.  In mathematics, discretization concerns the process of transferring continuous models and equations into discrete counterparts. This process is usually carried out as a first step toward making them suitable for numerical evaluation and implementation on digital computers. In order to be processed on a digital computer another process named quantization is essential.

In sound, people have used the term “phonons” to describe a particle like behavior…  most of these descriptions result from our modeling approach taken and either can be used to characterize a sound field or a “field” in general…

I like to say it this way that all electro magnetic radiation (electro magnetic spectrum) as the divine ingredients used by God to make anything and everything. there is such a thing as sympathetic resonation as well, wherein one vibration in a range can effect another and so on.

The Hebrew word kol is a wonderful word meaning ‘all’. everything. and also, “sound”. the aramaic is qol.

In Genesis 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

God says let there be light and instantly there was light. So perhaps if we are made in His likeness and image we should be more careful with what comes out of our mouths.

What Is God Trying To Write On The Imaginations Of His People?

In John 11 there is this amazing story of Jesus knowing that Lazarus is dying and seemingly purposely waiting until Lazarus dies before coming to the rescue.

Lazarus sister Martha is the first to meet Jesus when he arrives and says in John 11: 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 23Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

Here we see Martha really did not understand so Jesus gives her one of the greatest theological lessons in all of the Bible.

25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Now catch this if you can, a few minutes later the other sister Mary says essentially the same thing, in verse 32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But instead of another theological lesson, this time Jesus weeps and walks over to the tomb where Lazarus has been dead 4 days and resurrects Lazarus. Could it be that Mary had the passion and understanding to move the Lord hand? Because she could only imagine and believe nothing is impossible with God?

In Luke 10:38-42 we meet Martha and Mary for the first time who are apparently two single sisters living together. While John’s Gospel give us the details of Jesus’ resurrecting Lazarus from the dead, Interesting that Luke makes no mention of Lazarus.

Luke 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 40But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

Martha is very distracted, imagine Jesus comes into your house and she is busy about all this stuff.  Martha  asks for someone to help her, and Jesus tells her she is worried and distracted by many things. Martha is doing exactly what she should be doing in her by cultural expectation of her day entertaining and feeding her guests. Mary should have been helping her in the kitchen. Wasn’t that her proper place to be helping prepare a meal instead of sitting with the men? But Jesus responds:

10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Right here Jesus turns the traditional belief of a woman’s place upside down. Our radical Lord Jesus turned the priorities of a woman’s life upside down with his belief that women should also learn the word of God. By placing the study of the word of God above the socially and culturally imposed gender roles of homemaker, Jesus makes it rather clear that “a woman is greater than what she does. Her worth and dignity are not just from childbearing. Her status is not dependent on her relationship to a man or her role in society but is dependent on her relationship to God as it is with a man.

Only one thing is needed here, to have an intimate relationship with our Lord.

So I want you to begin today to change your imagination. Practice what you think about, watch carefully what  you imagine,  and only believe, and receive what the Lord has commanded us to do. Don’t allow one image from the enemy to mediate on.

Begin to profess out-loud so both invisible Kingdoms here you.

Every one say right now “Papa God I want only your thoughts, your words and your dreams and visions to be  exalted in my life.”

2 Corinthians 10:5 “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;”

Psalm 138: 1I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

There is no name above the name of Jesus, before he was manifested as Jesus he was called the Word. Here he is saying the Word is even above His name.  For example, you can pray all you want and call on the name of Jesus, but if you are not being a doer of the Word and obeying His commandment. It may not work so well for you.

You going to really have to cast down and not exalt words and  images in your mind’s eye that try to be above the Word of God.

When the devil comes and tries to talk to you, and you hear him say that you are going to get sick and die, you cannot exalt that word, instead you must speak outloud when possible and  declare and exalt the Word of God, which says, in Psalm 118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

This is time to tell the devil and his demons to shut up and go in Jesus name.

Don’t you keep giving those evil spirits your God given power of words and thoughts and imagination. That is what Adam and Eve ended up doing.

Don’t keep exalting those evil spirits assignments and  images for you, by believing and putting its evil power and authority above the Word of God.

Take the devil words and cast it down trample all over them,  and bring your thoughts into captivity, by making the devils words obedient to Christ.

You can not have two thoughts at the same time, you have to choose one or the other.  Nor can you say the ABC’s and count backwards at the same time. Papa God did not design you to do that, He designed you to have the gift of free choice. You get to decide what you will have blessings or curses.

You say according to the Scripture devil you are the father of lies and I refuse to hear anything you say. Go get out of here  and take your stinking thinking with you. Let me remind you where you are spending eternity devil and all your evil spirits.

This way you are declaring and exalting the Word of God and not receiving one image from the enemy. Try it for a day and see how much you get blessed.

When the devil tries to bring a thought or image into your mind, just say I will not receive that, and begin instead  to declare the Word of God. Remember we walk by faith not by how things may look at the moment.

Whatever imagination or image you receive and believe will eventually become mixed with your faith and that is what you are going to have.

That is as simple as I know how to explain it.

Start to declare God’s images for you, because He has a good plan for you’re your life. No matter what the circumstances are at the moment start believing for what you really want, even in the face of a circumstance that may look totally opposite of what you are saying. The Word of Lord says that all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer believing, you shall receive in Matthew 21:21-22.

Read your Bible and you will find out what the Word of God says is Papa God’s vision for you, start to declare it out loud. If you will be accountable for every idle word you say, think about the ones you say that line up with the Holy Scriptures.

In this day let us declare we are going to blessed and healed and prosper in all good things. Amen.That we will immediately cast down from our mind, any thoughts that are contrary to what God has said.That we boldly declare the Gospel truth and speak blessings instead of curses.  When you complain about someone you are suppose to love you are bringing curses into your life. If that person is a born again believer you better not be tearing them down. Jesus said that person in His friend.

John 15:15  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Do you really want to speak against someone who Jesus says is His friend. Those are fighting words. If you obey the Lord you will get  revelation knowledge as you keep spending time with him. According to His Word and His revelation to you, even if the revelation comes by way of a dream, or vision or just someone gives you a word. The imagination or the vision that you receive is the reality that you will get.

I recall a pastor friend telling me after he gave a message some women came up and told him she had a word from God that he was going to be in a terrible accident and maybe die. My pastor friend immediately rebuked the devil in her. He realized that was divination and occultism trying to kill him. If he had taken that into his spirit he might have experience that evil premonition. But praise God he knew how to fight back with the Word of truth when he heard the devils lies.

If you accept the devils imagination of the things he is saying to you and accusing you of, then you will receive the devils results.

Those thoughts of failure, sickness, diseases and poverty, are going to begin to manifest in you and around you, and then a spirit of  pride, which is really a form of ideology will come, so you will live in lack and  not be able to pay your bills, never  amounting to what you could have been, so you are not able to get employment, so your not moving in the power of Papa God,. Then you are constantly irritable causing those around you to be effected by your spirits of the  unloving and spirit of fear etc…  You see these are the very images that the devil and his entire evil spirit army wants you to exalt above the Word of God so they can defeat you before you can do any good here. So you can forget about bringing heaven to earth.

Thy will be done in Heaven as it is on earth will not be happening if you do not get with Papa Gods program for your life.

All of you here can probably say there are certain thoughts that you must no longer receive or entertain in your mind.  You have already seen the devastation from them. So why hold on to them any longer? Hit the road Jack and don’t come back no more.

There are certain words and phrases that you must no longer receive,  or continue to think on and entertain in your mind, Those stinking evil thoughts are like opening the front door of your holy temple of the Lord and saying come on in and reek havoc in me.  Here is my life savings you want it? Here are my dreams and vision you want to destroy them?

Words and phrases such as; “you always, I can’t , its impossible, I hope, I  can, it  won’t, it will not, I am not able, I don’t think so,  I do not know, nothing ever work out right for me, maybe if, why can’t I can never get ahead, it will never work out in the end, etc…  These  thoughts and feelings and  words will not help you to do this and greater thing in Jesus name will they?

Stop yourself from even using these phrases and words that are thoughts and imaginations from the enemy for your failure, this is a New Year a New Day the devil did not make. It is time  you cast those old programs out. Delete them. When it doubt cast it out.

Don’t accept it and stop entertaining it! Don’t think about it anymore it a thing of the past Do not go back to it like a dog who revisit its vomit.

Instead put on the sacrifice of praise,  Think about what Word of God says about you and your circumstances.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

The devils send his thoughts to through Theta brain waves trying to get you to accept it into your imagination. Because truly it is  devil who imagines you sick, and defeated, diseased and  impoverished, he tries to get you to accept what he is imagining for you, by your faith.  Faith can work both ways.

The atheist has much more faith to believe the lie then the born again believer. So why should any born again believer put any faith in the devils lies?

Acts 10:38  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Right here we have confirmation the devil is the one who put diseases and sickness on people.

Which means the devil can also take them off people if he can get them of the path of holiness and stop following the Lord.

Lets face it the devil is constantly trying to get you to imagine or think on things that are not Papa God’s will for your life.  After he departed from Jesus in the deserted he still came back again. He just went away for a season.

Matthew 4:8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. ( did that mean the devil really had the kingdoms of the world to give away to Jesus because Adam gave it to him when he disobeyed the Lord) 10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Now it was finished at the cross and Jesus got the keys to this world  back from the devil at the Resurrection, but we still have to approbate what was done by obeying the Lord’s commandments.

Since the devil lost at the cross, his purpose now  is the same tactic as always since it worked so well on Adam and Eve, and that is the devil trying to get  access to your imagination. That way he can play out his evil purposes and get you to receive images of spirits of doubt, and fear, and unbelief, which will cause you to reject and not believe Papa God’s Word.

When the serpent spoke to Eve in the Garden of Eden, he was trying to get her to receive his imagination for her. His purpose in the Garden was to get his same vision of disobedience and destruction that got him forever kicked out of Heaven to come into the lives of Adam and Eve. Once they put their faith in the devil through the serpent of that image, all hell broke lose so to speak.

Immediately Adam and Eve received the  results. There spiritual eyes were open and they were able to manifest spirit like shame and fear where they could not have done that before they sinned. Had Adam and Eve continued in Papa God’s vision and image for them, they would have received the Word’s results as it was intended. They just like the devil who got kicked out of Heaven now Adam and Eve got kicked out of paradise because they accepted the devils vision for them.

Whenever you believe anything the devil gives you of his visions and  images for you, you will lose your place, and your position,. You will lose your God given power and that means your own thoughts and words will work against you instead of for you. You will not be in homeostasis in your body or circumstances.

Imagine that One third of the Angels were fooled and  believed Satan’s image or vision for them, a vision of  having a mutiny and overthrowing Papa God, how that must have grieve the Holy Spirit to see them fall from their positions of power and authority. Now that all those spirits became evil they have a need to express themselves and no way to do it unless they are allowed to manifest through you. Because they have no bodies unless they can use yours.

So the evil spirits try and steal your power by getting you to receive their evil vision of defeat and failure.

The devils images is that he is the father of lies there is no truth in him only fear and clever lies. The devils  ultimate goal is to get a person to except his spirits of fear and to  doubt the Word of God. There is a reason why he is called the great deceiver because he is great at deceiving people. In Genesis 3:4-5 Satan deceived Eve into excepting his  image that is contrary to God’s Word. She accepted a spirit of doubt, which caused her to become insecure. That somehow Papa God was holding out on her and not letting her be all she could be.“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

Unfortunately all of us here have had to live in the results of that  wrong decision. Praise the Lord for sending Jesus to give us a way out of this mess.

We can not afford to let the devil have any access to your imagination.  We are going to have to cast out every lie and replace it with the Gospel truth.

Even if its seems logical, test all the spirits, test all your thought against the knowledge of God’s Word. Maintain a Heavenly perception, and lift up those arms and hands and  give a victory shout of holy Joy. After all when you study the whole Bible you see that we win in the end. Hallelujah!

For example, it is a natural type thought to think of death as a permanent end of life, but God’s Word says that we should raise the dead (Matthew 10:7-8). I do not know about you but I certainly in awe everyday and grateful the Lord used my friend Pastor Henry to cast out a spirit of death when my heart stop beating at Pleasant Valley church in 2001.

Matthew 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

This all depends on which  imagination and vision we believe? When I have chosen to trust the Lord I have seen people healed and miracles happen.

Even when they did not have faith for it. Our faith trumps any ones unbelief.

When we study the lives of the people of God in the Bible and in recent times,  we see that that those who work their faith and manifest God’s power, have always  disciplined themselves to cast down imaginations that exalt themselves against the Word of God. The Word of God is the final authority all the time, Papa God and us are in charge here not the devil.

The devil continually  tries to get his ungodly images to be exalted or believed by you, above the Word of God.When you bite into his bate like a fish the moment you do you are being reeled in. Then your imagination gets empower by your faith in the wrong things which can then become a reality. The word “exalt” means to magnify to make something bigger then it is. Too many Christians magnify the devils thoughts of defeat, rather than exalting the Word of God. Come on its true isn’t it.

The first place its all starts is in your mind. Every day there is a war being fought for your imagination and some people seem to forget or over look that aspect. Each moment you get to decide,will you think like the Lord or will you think like the devil?

You have to chose, no one can chose for you.

1 John 4: 1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.4:2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Casting down imaginations is not accepting the devils thoughts for you or anything else he tries to whisper and suggestions to through his visions for you. Its really up to you, only you can be victorious over the enemy, Jesus is not going make you into a robot to assure you make the right choices here. Militry commander understand their enemy stragies so they can defeat them. Army’s that are victorious in battles must prepare and train before they go into battle.  So must we  also prepare ourselves by staying in the Word and practice casting down every thought and imaginations the enemies kingdom tries to give you. It’s a right fight to maintain God’s vision for you. If it does not line up with the Word of God cast it out. Only accept the thoughts and imaginations  that  do line up with the Word of God.

By submitting to God you will be able to resist the devil every time and he will flee. James 4:6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

In other word people struggle  resisting the devil and casting down his imaginations, because they are not humbling themselves before the Lord. Thinking that they can do it themselves without the Lord. Maybe they watch too much television newscast and shows getting a worldy perspective which makes you weak in the spirit.

Discipline is part of becoming a Disciple of the Lord so you can move in His power and might mixing your faith with His truth.

The devil tries to keep your mind full of other things, so your mind is to busy  to think about what the Bible says. Youre still thinking about the movie or show that you just saw, or mediating on some problems at home or at work. Those problems would not even be there if you kept your mind stayed on the Lord. What you put into your mind will come back out again.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”

A strong hold could be anything that you allow to dictate your life.

Someone who prays without ceasing  will be in tune with the spiritual things. Prayer always works, if it does not change the circumstances it will at lest change your perception of them so eventually the circumstances do change. If prayer does not work its time to get to work and find out why? Our ministry began at that point.

When we stay in a place of prayer and worship as we study the Bible we receive a greater confidence in the things of God, causing us to have the ability to cast out all of the devils images for us to be sick and defeated.

How can you ever cast out all those stinking thinking evil imaginations, if you don’t have Papa God’s word constantly in you thought?

The devil will try to overwhelm you with his thoughts. He is the one who  causes problems, he is the one who orchestrates a crises in your life.

Maybe its time to fast and pray so you can get a victory. Maybe if all we read was the Bible we be moving in greater signs and wonders. Instead of filling our minds libraries with the worldly imaginations that lead to destruction.

It is the Word of God that strengthens you, and when its spoken from your heart it always defeats the enemy. This New Year maybe turn off the Television and anything else that keep you from Papa God’s presence and moving in His power and might.

I sent the song I wrote recently to a friend who questions a lot of my positions and  what we are doing trying to apply a more excellent way. He asked how can I promise that “surely all your prayers will be answered?” What happens when someone is obedient and his/her prayers are not answered as he/she has prayed them?  Maybe they are not as obedient as they appear, maybe they are fellow-shipping with devils and not really seeing it. But Papa God see it all. If they die of a disease does that mean they were not obedient enough or their faith in prayer was not great enough? The way I answered was that is.

John 14: 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Because God says what He means and He means what He said!

If people are not getting prayers answered it would appear it is because they are not keeping the commandments then from this verse and others like it. So often people do not understand this or how to pray. Jesus even said, “Father I know that you always hear me but I pray out loud now so these nearby hear me and believe”, and then He raised Lazarus from the grave.

John 11:41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank  thee that thou hast heard me. 42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

OK but that was Jesus and He is the Son of God and He was given all power in Heaven and on earth, we are not him and never will be. But then you go back to, ” this and greater thing shall you do in His name” .14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Personally I think we just miss it, because we do not stay in the Word all the time and we lose that Heavenly perspective and take on an earthly perspective. Papa God wants us to move in His signs and wonders and miracles and the devil wants to get us to think like he does and entertain defeat and sickness etc

So its possible to have all your prayers answered according to the Bible when we cast down every high thing that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of Papa God.2 Corinthians 10:5

I recall Derek Prince saying all his prayer are answer because he always prays according to the will of God.The Lord gives us freedom of choice to think like Him, or think like the world and the devil.So in essence I believe I am Biblically correct to sing praises onto him by writing and singing this. I can quote many more Scriptural examples but I think you get the point.

“Freedom comes in Jesus name if you’re a doer of His word.Then surly all your prayers will be answered!”

The point is that you have to be a Doer of the Word for that to manifest this side of Heaven, I am not even suggesting you can get every prayer answer without meeting this vital condition. By the way every promise in the has a condition attached to it. But so often that is over looked and then people make up theologies trying to explain why prayer did not work.

Beside its says Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. So we should be encouraging each other to bring some aspects of Heaven here by walking in love and peace all the time as best we can.Also Jesus cursed the fig tree and it took a day or so the die, so just because we do not see something happen immediately is no reason to give up.

If Papa God said it we just believe it, we trust in Him and lean not on our own understanding.

They will know we are Christian by our Love.

We need to exalt the Word of God above the words of the devils and his imaginations. We need to stay in faith in His Word, so we expect the manifestation of His Word, and cast down every stinking thought that goes contrary to God’s Word.

If you don’t see an immediate manifestation of God’s Word, then the devil will try and start getting a conversation going with you why it did not work and make you feel like a failure as a believer. Once you have declared the Word of God above the imaginations of the enemy, then the battle will be victorious . As you continue to exalt the Word of God and cast down every imagination, wait patiently on the Lord until the full manifestation of the victory that we have in Jesus name happens.

Many Christians are defeated before they even get started, by the imaginations that they are receiving. They are defeated with spirits of sickness, and diseases with spirits of poverty and unfulfilled dreams. As soon as they begin to see some lying symptoms, they begin to receive the devils imaginations that he sends with the symptoms. If you cough, you do not want to receive the devils imaginations of a more severe sickness, as he tries to fill your mind with the “what ifs.” What if its swine flu or worse? What if the bank and bill collectors decides to collect what you owe them today?  What will you do? The moment that you begin to think on and accept these imaginations, you sow a seed for these things. Some seeds seem to have a quick result, like some plants grow quicker then others. Again, you can not put your faith in the devils imaginations and expect to be victorious in God.

Many times the demons give you their imaginations  which might start out as a small thing, such as a cough. You may begin to cough and these thought come quickly in your imagination. The thought that your getting sick, because everyone else in your place has gotten sick and so now its your turn. The evil germs got hold of you and now your in for a bad time.

When you grab hold of that it must make the devil  and his demons happy if that was possible. Because he must be miserable all the time and that is what he wants for you. He has imagined you very sick and defeated, and the devil wants to transfer that imagination to you so it will manifest in you.This is when you must really work your faith and believe the report of the Lord that you shall not die but live and proclaim the Word of the Lord. You speak the truth out loud.

How many time have you found you are about to pray for a sick person or cast out a devil out of someone, and immediately the enemy comes to you with his imagination, that he wants to accept  in your mind of “what if they don’t get healed or delivered?” Listen it’s not your reputation at sake here.

When this happens you have to speak out loud and say what is going to happen in Jesus name before the devil can try and steal anything from you are the person you are ministering to.

Immediately cast down and declare what is going to happen according to Papa God’s Word. The battle for the healing, or deliverance, or anything else for that matter is most likely won before we even actually lay physical hands  on someone to pray for them. The battle is won by whose imaginations you have received God or the devils.

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”

The believing comes before the receiving. If you believe Papa God’s imagination,  take in His Holy Words, His visions, and thoughts and Thought for you what do you think you shall receive then? If you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children how much more will Papa God bless those who do this? Luke 11:11

When you go to lay hands on the sick, you must already believe that they will be healed other wise might as well not even go there. If you have asked God for some provisions, you must already believe that He is going to give it to you, before  you actually receive it.

Stop letting the stinking enemy steal your faith in God’s imagination for you, especially if there is a waiting period before the full manifestation. We are to walk by faith not walking by how things look in the natural. It is only the devil who tries to cause his imaginations into your mind by how things look. We serve a supernatural God who can cause you to walk on water, any thing is possible with the Lord. When you keep your eyes on the Lord Jesus and imagine things the way He does.

Every time I try to believe God for something, the devil tries to get me to accept a spirit of doubt and unbelief. Sorry but I have seen the truth now and I can not go back to a lie. “How you gonna keep them down on the farm after they’ve seen Paree?”

Whose imagination or report  I am going to receive and believe?  If I choose to cast down the imaginations of the enemy, then I am going to have to actively and continually guard my mind, and speak the Word of God, moment by moment if that is what it takes.

Which seems better then choosing what many Christians do, which is think about and entertain those thoughts from the devil about how it won’t work.. It’s your mind, and your battle, don’t let the devil write his imaginations for you in it!

All the devil wants is to deceive us and erode our faith in the Word of God. Discipline yourself to immediately cast down ungodly imaginations. I can not do that for you. The biblical way to cast down imaginations is through speaking the Word of God immediately when the enemy sends his imaginations.

For example  in Luke 4:1-15 the devil mis-quotes the Bible to Jesus, Jesus comes back with, “Nevertheless it is written and speaks the Word of God”.

Sometimes the  devil can send his imaginations for you through friends or family members, to use them to try to give you their imaginations for you. In Mark 8:31-33 says;

“And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.

But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.”Jesus saw how Peter was being influenced through Theta brain waves and how the devil was speaking through this disciple.

Joshua and Caleb had to reject the imaginations of the defeat that the enemy was speaking through the other ten spies. They exalted the Word of God and received the promises of the Word, while the other ten spies excepted the devils defeat, and received what they believed, failure. People often exalt or accept the imaginations and thoughts of the enemy due to peer pressure, because they just want to fit in and run with the In crowd.

I do not care if the whole says it can not happen, Nothing is impossible with God.  If God’s Word  promises it and you meet the conditions of that promise, then expect to get what you have believed for, if God’s Word says you will get what you have believed.

What ever you do line it up with the Word of God.

Casting down imaginations from the enemy is what we are suppose to be helping equip the saint to do. So we understand the strategies of them enemy so we can defeat him and his demon army and gain the victories. You are not likely to resurrect the dead or heal a  sick  person in the all powerful name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth if you have received the devils evil defeated imaginations for you. Jesus said in John 14:12-14;“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

Some people have gotten mad when I teach this and say I am taking it out of context. Ok it tells us in Matthew 10:7-8 to go and raise the dead, heal the sick and cast out devils. Mark 16 says that pretty much as well. So whatever imagination you take in and believe, that is going to dictate the results that you are going to get seemingly.  Those people who get mad about it seem that they just do not want to take any responsibility for what happens in their life. The Bible says the curse can not come without a cause. Proverbs 26:2

John 8:32 tells us the truth will make you free, but first it might make you mad as I like to say.

Sometimes Papa God will speak to us through dream or visions or a prophet however, He will always speak to us through His written Word. But many Christian do not know their Bible very well.  So they simply do not understand what He has imagined for us.

The handwriting of Papa God wrote His imaginations in your spirit and soul and mind. This would be a good time to start exalt the Lord and His dreams, and vision for you. Start imaging what it is Papa God has given you, by confessing it out loud, declaring what the Word of God says about it, and casting down every imagination and high thing that the enemy tries to give you that is opposite of  what Papa God has told us.

Remember you have to first believe to receive.

We need to pray for each other and build each other up not tear each other down. When you do that and stay in a attitude of praise and worship you will receive blessings.

Philippians 4:8 gives us what we should think on;

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Isaiah 26: 1In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. 2Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. 3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 4Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Let me lead you in prayer before the Living Lord our God.

Papa God, I renounce in my generations all the way back to Adam and I repent and renounce in my life for fellow-shipping with any unclean spirits. I renounce and repent in my life for all condemnation and gossip and murmuring; for all accusation towards God, self, and others; for bitterness with all its underlings. For all the wrong things I have imagined.

Like, rebellion, wrong thinking programming, control, manipulation, and a personality of accusation, comparing yourself to others, for competition and replaying wrong thinking.

For suspicion, judging others, misunderstanding, racism, envy and jealousy and feeling like a scapegoat.

For all the unworthiness, shame, guilt, isolation, division, self-pity, fear, lying and perfectionism.

For allowing a torment spirit in, to be a destroyer in my life, for all Luciferian Spirits of Accusation.

I thank you Papa God for your forgiveness and I choose to receive it. I choose to walk in freedom this day In Jesus of Nazareth’s name. Amen

Let me pray for you now, In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I take authority over all the works of the enemy and I bind and break its powers. I cancel the assignment of every stinking spirit that has ever messed with our imaginations. I bind all judgment and criticism, all condemnation, all gossip and murmuring. I bind and break the powers of all accusation and criticism that would come against you through the mouths of other people. It is written, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that rises against you in judgment you shall condemn for this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord! Their righteousness is of me saith the Lord. I take authority over self-accusation where we accuse ourselves, feeling we’ve not done enough, or not done it well enough.I command every stinking evil spirit that has used our imaginations for evil, for guilt, shame, condemnation, false burden bearing, false responsibility, people pleasing, and drivenness to go right now into the dry place in the all mighty and all powerful name of my Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.I have been given authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the powers of the enemy and nothing will by any means harm us.The word of God is clear that we have as children of God been given the fruit of the spirit which is love, joy, and peace in the Holy Ghost. And this is what we are willing to walk in from this day forward.  Be released now in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.
