10/3 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.”– 2 Corinthians 10:3

When we are wronged and see injustice, something in us rises and demands it be made right. How we go about it is crucial. Instead of acting like fools without love and self-control, King Jesus invites us onto His Holy Spirit battlefield. Ride King Jesus!

Declaration: The battle belongs to you Lord. I lay down my right to be right. Your justice is true justice.

Clean Heart & Mind

“You shall have no other gods before Me.” – Deuteronomy 5: 7

This principle is all through the Bible, friends. God Almighty says when you come into the promise–when you finally get to that place–you will find it has other gods who want to entice you to follow them.

“Pastor Troy, did you say “other gods”? Yes. The One and Only True Living God is letting us know there are other “gods,” as in high level angelic beings He created; Satan and his demonic horde. This means there will be things you’ll be tempted to serve in that blessed place. Our physical body is where those little gods try to move in first. This means we have to constantly work on the atmosphere of our mind and heart.

Here’s what’s real: I am constantly dealing with my heart over who I’m mad at, who I’m enraged at, and what I’m sick and tired of. What am I willing to throw a fit over? What should I be involved in or not be involved in? Is that you too?

If you don’t know how to clean the atmosphere in your heart and mind, start running around with King Jesus because Jesus knew how to whip things into place. John 2 gives us a story–the one where Jesus took a whip to some folks. He kicked over tables; straight up lost his mind. I know that doesn’t sound like “hippy-lovin’ Jesus” because it ain’t hippy Jesus. It’s King Jesus.

The Word says, “And when he had made a whip of cords.” Stop. Did you know Jesus didn’t just spontaneously go, “Well, this stinks,” and lose his mind? The brother made a whip. He looked over and said, “No, no. You’re a special kind of stupid that needs a special kind of whip, so I’ll be with y’all in just a minute.”

And the disciples are like, “What are you doing? What’s happening?” And King Jesus is saying, “Oh, I’m fashioning a whip because I’m about to drive this trash out of my house. That’s what I’m about to do.” It says,

And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” – John 2: 14-17

You can’t let the priorities of other gods into your physical realm–keep your mind and your heart clean. You need a greater influence using the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit to kick some tables over and whip your thought life into shape.
