THE TITLE IS, “TO COME INTO LIVING REALITY,
DIVINITY NEEDS YOUR MIND.” DIVINITY MAKES CONTACT WITH
HUMANITY THROUGH THE MIND; IF THE MIND IS NOT RIGHT, DIVINITY CANNOT
REASON WITH IT. BUT IT TELLS US IN
ISAIAH 1:18, THE “A” PART, “COME NOW, AND
LET US REASON TOGETHER, SAITH THE LORD.” WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY,
WHAT A SPECIAL PRIVILEGE THAT THE GREAT GOD
OF THE UNIVERSE DESIRES TO FELLOWSHIP, TO REASON WITH
HUMAN BEINGS. JESUS CAME TO EARTH, NOT ONLY TO DIE
FOR OUR SINS AND GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE; HE CAME TO SHOW
US HOW TO LIVE, HE CAME AS OUR
EXAMPLE. IN THE FOUR GOSPELS IT
IS RECORDED THAT JESUS HAD A DIRECT LINE TO HEAVEN. JOHN 11:41 THE “B” PART;
VERSE 42, THE “A” PART, “FATHER, I THANK THEE
THAT THOU HAST HEARD ME. AND I KNEW THAT THOU
HEAREST ME ALWAYS.” ALSO, IN THE FOUR GOSPELS, IT IS RECORDED THAT JESUS
WOULD SPEND THE NIGHT AWAY FROM
HIS DISCIPLES TO COMMUNE WITH
HIS HEAVENLY FATHER. THE LIVING REALITY
JESUS POSSESSED IN THE HEAVENLY FATHER
AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, IT BORE FRUIT IN HIS MINISTRY: SIGNS, WONDERS,
MIRACLES AND HEALINGS, AND SOULS BEING
SAVED. AND FOR A PERSON TO COME INTO
LIVING REALITY OF DIVINITY, THERE’S A
PRICE TO PAY. MATTHEW 16:24-25, “THEN SAID JESUS
UNTO HIS DISCIPLES, IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER
ME, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF, AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS,
AND FOLLOW ME. FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE
HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT: AND WHOSOEVER WILL LOSE
HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE SHALL FIND IT.” TO HAVE LIVING
REALITY IN DIVINITY, SELF MUST BE CRUCIFIED. YOU LOSE YOUR LIFE
IN HIS DIVINE WILL. YOU LOSE YOUR
GOALS AND DREAMS THAT HIS WILL MAY BE
CARRIED OUT IN YOUR LIFE. THE APOSTLE PAUL
PUT IT THIS WAY IN GALATIANS 2:20, “I AM CRUCIFIED WITH
CHRIST: NEVERTHLESS I LIVE; YET NOT I, BUT
CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: AND THE LIFE WHICH I
NOW LIVE IN THE FLESH I LIVE BY THE FAITH
OF THE SON OF GOD, WHO LOVED ME, AND GAVE
HIMSELF FOR ME.” NOW, ONCE SELF
IS CRUCIFIED, YOU ARE ABLE TO
TAKE UP YOUR CROSS, WHICH IN JESUS’ DAY WAS
A SYMBOL OF SUFFERING, PERSECUTION AND TRIBULATION. AS A CHILD OF GOD STARTS OUT
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS, THESE STEPS WILL LEAD THAT
PERSON TO THE UPPER ROOM TO BE BAPTIZED
IN THE HOLY GHOST. JESUS WAS FILLED
WITH THE HOLY GHOST AS WERE HIS FOLLOWERS ON
THE DAY OF PENTECOST. THEY CAME INTO LIVING
REALITY OF DIVINITY THROUGH THE PERSON AND
POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST. ACTS 1:8, “BUT YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER, AFTER THAT THE HOLY
GHOST IS COME UPON YOU: AND YE SHALL BE WITNESSES
UNTO ME BOTH IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDAEA,
AND IN SAMARIA, AND UNTO THE UTTERMOST
PART OF THE EARTH.” JUST BEFORE JESUS GAVE
HIS LIFE AT CALVARY, HE GAVE HIS DISCIPLES SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
AND POWERFUL TEACHINGS. IN JOHN’S GOSPEL,
CHAPTERS 14-16, JESUS STRESSED THE NECESSITY OF RECEIVING THE
HOLY GHOST BAPTISM, THE REALITY OF THE
PERSON OF THE HOLY GHOST AND THE MANY PURPOSES
THAT THE HOLY GHOST GIVES AND SERVES TO THOSE
THAT HE DWELLS WITHIN. FOR INSTANCE, JOHN 14:16, “AND I WILL PRAY THE FATHER, AND HE SHALL GIVE
YOU ANOTHER COMFORTER, THAT HE MAY ABIDE
WITH YOU FOR EVER.” THE PERSON OF THE HOLY
GHOST WILL PROVIDE DIVINE COMFORT IN
TIME OF SORROW, PERSECUTION AND TRIBULATION. THEN IN 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.” THE HOLY GHOST BRINGS
TO REMEMBRANCE THE TEACHINGS
OF JESUS, BRINGING A PERSON INTO MORE AND MORE LIVING
REALITY OF JESUS. JOHN 15:26, “BUT WHEN THE
COMFORTER IS COME, WHO- WHOM I WILL SEND
UNTO YOU FROM THE FATHER, EVEN THE SPIRIT
OF TRUTH, WHICH PROCEEDETH
FROM THE FATHER, HE SHALL TESTIFY OF ME.” THE HOLY GHOST WILL
TEACH US ALL ABOUT JESUS. THEN IN JOHN 16:13, “HOWBEIT WHEN HE, THE
SPIRIT OF TRUTH, IS COME, HE WILL GUIDE
YOU INTO ALL TRUTH: FOR HE SHALL NOT
SPEAK OF HIMSELF; BUT WHATSOEVER HE SHALL
HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK: AND HE WILL SHOW
YOU THINGS TO COME.” WHAT THE HEAVENLY FATHER
GIVES THE HOLY SPIRIT, HE WILL RELAY IT TO US; AND THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS
THE POWER AND AUTHORITY TO REVEAL TO A PERSON
CERTAIN THINGS ABOUT THE FUTURE. ALL OF THESE DUTIES THAT THE
HOLY SPIRIT IS TO PERFORM REQUIRE A PERSON TO
HAVE LIVING REALITY IN THE PERSON OF
THE HOLY SPIRIT BECAUSE HOW CAN A PERSON COME UNDER SUBJECTION
TO ANOTHER WITHOUT REALITY IN THAT
PERSON AND THEIR AUTHORITY? TO COME UNDER SUBJECTION
TO THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HAVE LIVING REALITY, THIS REQUIRES TAKING
ON THE MIND OF CHRIST. PHILIPPIANS 2:1, 2 AND 5, “IF THERE BE THEREFORE ANY
CONSOLATION IN CHRIST, IF ANY COMFORT OF LOVE…” AND HERE IT IS, “IF ANY FELLOWSHIP OF THE SPIRIT, IF ANY BOWELS AND MERCIES, FULFIL YE MY JOY, THAT
YE BE LIKEMINDED, HAVING THE SAME LOVE, BEING OF ONE
ACCORD, OF ONE MIND. “LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU, WHICH
WAS ALSO IN CHRIST JESUS.” IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FOLLOW
JESUS IN HIS FOOTSTEPS, TO BE LIKE HIM,
TO HAVE LIVING REALITY WITHOUT TAKING ON
THE MIND OF CHRIST. FOR MANY, MANY YEARS
CHILDREN OF GOD HAVE LACKED IN THEIR
RELATIONSHIP WITH DIVINITY IN SO MANY WAYS. THEY HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN, MAYBE EVEN BAPTIZED
IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, BUT FAILING TO TAKE
ON THE MIND OF CHRIST IN ITS FULLNESS
THEY LACKED: THEY LACKED LIVING
REALITY IN THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT, THEY LACKED THE POWER OR THE ABILITY TO USE
THE POWER OF THE BLOOD, THEY LACKED THE WILL TO BE A
LIVING SACRIFICE UNTO GOD. SO, TODAY, WE LIVE
ON BORROWED TIME BECAUSE THE CHURCH AS
A WHOLE IN THE PAST HAS LACKED POWER AND LIVING REALITY TO BRING IN THE WORLD HARVEST OF SOULS
GOD INTENDED TO BE WON. HEBREWS 11:6, “BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD
MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT
DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.” THERE’S A PRICE TO PAY
TO HAVE LIVING REALITY, FOR ONE MUST
DILIGENTLY PURSUE GOD AND ALL THAT HE OFFERS. THE APOSTLE PETER WROTE
ABOUT THE MIND OF CHRIST AND THE PRICE TO BE PAID. FIRST PETER 4:1, “FORASMUCH THEN AS CHRIST HATH SUFFERED FOR
US IN THE FLESH, ARM YOURSELVES LIKEWISE
WITH THE SAME MIND: FOR HE THAT HATH
SUFFERED IN THE FLESH HATH CEASED FROM SIN.” AND THEN LATER ON IN
SECOND PETER, CHAPTER 1 HE WROTE THAT CHILDREN
OF GOD ARE ABLE TO ADD POWERFUL, DIVINE
INGREDIENTS TO THEIR MIND THAT WILL ENABLE THEM TO
TAKE ON THE MIND OF CHRIST. PETER GOES ON TO EXPLAIN
THAT BY DOING SO A PERSON MAY BE
ABLE TO PARTAKE OF THE SAME DIVINE
NATURE OF JESUS; AND IT’S THROUGH
THIS DIVINE NATURE A PERSON HAS POWER
OVER SATAN’S KINGDOM, VICTORY OVER ALL THE
LUSTS OF THIS WORLD, LIVING REALITY IN THE FATHER,
THE SON AND THE HOLY GHOST. BUT CHRISTIANS THAT
STRUGGLE TO SERVE GOD AND DO HIS WILL, THOSE THAT RESIST
PAYING THE PRICE TO FOLLOW IN
JESUS’ FOOTSTEPS, THOSE THAT DO NOT HAVE THIS
DIVINE NATURE I SPEAK OF, SUCH INDIVIDUALS HAVE NOT
TAKEN ON THE MIND OF CHRIST IN ITS FULLNESS. THE MIND OF CHRIST
IS A DIRECT LINK BETWEEN YOU AND DIVINITY. THE MIND OF CHRIST IS
THE- IS THE REASON GOD CAN USE A PERSON TO DO
HIS WILL IN PERFECTION. THE MIND OF CHRIST IS A
MUST IF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TO BE IN YOUR
LIFE ALL THAT JESUS ORDAINED HIM TO BE. IN FACT, THE MIND OF
CHRIST IS THE REASON JESUS AND THE EARLY CHURCH
WAS VICTORIOUS OVER SATAN AND
HIS KINGDOM, TEARING DOWN
STRONGHOLDS AND SETTING THE
CAPTIVES FREE. MATTHEW 28:18-19, “AND JESUS CAME AND
SPAKE UNTO THEM, SAYING, ALL POWER
IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND
IN EARTH. GO YE THEREFORE, AND
TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE
NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND
OF THE HOLY GHOST.” PAUL WROTE IN 2 CORINTHIANS 10:4, “(FOR THE WEAPONS OF OUR
WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL, BUT MIGHTY THROUGH GOD TO THE PULLING DOWN
OF STRONG HOLDS).” THE MIND OF CHRIST
ENABLED THE EARLY CHURCH TO ENDURE GREAT PERSECUTION, WILLINGLY LAYING
THEIR LIVES DOWN FOR THE SAKE
OF THE GOSPEL. LIVING REALITY WAS THEIRS
THROUGH THE MIND OF CHRIST. LIVING REALITY
FLOWED TO THEM THROUGH THE MIND OF
CHRIST THEY HAD TAKEN ON. NOW SATAN KNOWS
THIS TO BE TRUE, SO HE SEEKS TO HINDER
GOD’S CHILDREN FROM TAKING ON THE MIND
OF CHRIST OR USING IT. WHEN A PERSON IS
COMPLETELY YIELDED, BODY AND MIND, TO BE USED
AS AN INSTRUMENT OF GOD, THE DEVIL IS
RENDERED HELPLESS; AND COMPLETELY YIELDED, THE BRIDE OF CHRIST
WILL BE A TERROR TO SATAN’S KINGDOM
IN THIS FINAL HOUR. SONG OF SOLOMON 6:10, “WHO IS SHE THAT LOOKETH
FORTH AS THE MORNING, FAIR AS THE MOON,
CLEAR AS THE SUN, AND TERRIBLE AS
AN ARMY WITH BANNERS?” NOW JESUS DECLARED OF SATAN,
HE’S A THIEF AND A ROBBER, HE IS A LIAR AND
THE FATHER OF LIES; AND SATAN WORKS NONSTOP
TO TRY AND BREAK THE CONNECTION BETWEEN
GOD AND HIS CHILDREN. YEARS AGO, THE LORD
WARNED REV. ANGLEY: IN THIS FINAL HOUR, THE
WORST, MOST FIERY BATTLES FOR GOD’S CHILDREN WOULD
BE THE BATTLES OF THE MIND BECAUSE SATAN IS TRYING
TO KEEP GOD’S CHILDREN FROM COMING INTO
LIVING REALITY SO THAT THEY
WILL NOT BECOME A HOLY TERROR
TO HIS KINGDOM. SATAN SEEKS TO MAKE
GOD’S CHILDREN HELPLESS IN USING ALL THE
BENEFITS AND POWER THAT DIVINITY HAS
MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE BLOOD
AND THE HOLY GHOST. SATAN AND HIS DEMONS WILL
USE ANYTHING THEY CAN TO DISTRACT YOUR ATTENTION
AND TAKE YOUR MIND OFF GOD; IN OTHER WORDS, TO DISCONNECT YOU FROM DIVINITY. ONE BIG WEAPON HE USES
TO ACCOMPLISH THIS: THE IMAGINATION; YOUR IMAGINATION ABOUT
TODAY OR THE FUTURE, ABOUT PEOPLE AND WHAT
THEY MAY BE SAYING OR DOING AGAINST YOU, YOUR IMAGINATION
ABOUT GOD HIMSELF, WHETHER HE REALLY LOVES
AND CARES FOR YOU OR NOT. THESE IMAGINATIONS
WILL BREED DOUBT, WORRY AND FEAR
IN YOUR MIND, WHICH THEN WILL IN
TURN PRODUCE STRESS, DEPRESSION, OPPRESSION, DISCOURAGEMENT AND DISCONTENTMENT. 2 TIMOTHY 1:7, “FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN
US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE,
AND OF A SOUND MIND.” AND IT’S A SOUND MIND- THAT IS WHAT
DIVINITY CAN USE- A SOUND MIND IS THE
MIND OF CHRIST. AND WE ARE
INSTRUCTED IN 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.” SATAN’S THOUGHTS THAT
COME INTO YOUR MIND, THEY CONTRADICT THE
KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND THIS IS WHY WE HAVE
BEEN EXHORTED OVER AND OVER TO DAILY FEED
THE MIND GOD’S WORD. ISAIAH 26:3, “THOU WILT KEEP HIM
IN PERFECT PEACE, WHOSE MIND IS
STAYED ON THEE: BECAUSE HE
TRUSTETH IN THEE.” AND A MIND STAYED
ON THE WORD IS A MIND STAYED
ON THE LORD. JESUS SAID IN
MATTHEW 4:4, “IT IS WRITTEN, MAN SHALL
NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT
OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.” THEN PAUL WROTE,
2 TIMOTHY 2:15, “STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF
APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT NEEDETH
NOT TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING
THE WORD OF TRUTH.” THERE IS POWER
IN THE WORD TO CLEAR YOUR
THOUGHT LIFE, TO FOCUS YOUR
MIND ON DIVINITY. THINK OF YOUR
MIND AS A CUP, IT CAN ONLY HOLD
SO MUCH AT A TIME. YOUR MIND IS HUMAN,
IT’S LIMITED, BUT WHOEVER YOU ALLOW
TO SERVE YOUR MIND CUP WILL HAVE THE GREATEST
INFLUENCE OVER YOUR LIFE. FOR EXAMPLE: IF YOU LET
THE DEVIL FILL YOUR MIND WITH HIS BATTLES, WITH
DOUBTS, FEARS, WORRIES AND DIVERSE KINDS OF
TEMPTATIONS, THE LONGER YOU LET THOSE
THOUGHTS OCCUPY YOUR MIND, THE MORE INFLUENCE THOSE
THOUGHTS WILL HAVE OVER YOU, AND THE WEAKER YOU WILL
BECOME IN THE LORD. IF A PERSON CONTINUALLY
FEEDS THEIR MINDS SUCH THINGS AS
TELEVISION, MOVIES AND VARIOUS KINDS
OF ENTERTAINMENTS, ALWAYS HAVING TO
SOCIALIZE WITH PEOPLE BY TALKING AND TEXTING; ALL OF THIS CONTINUALLY
FILLING YOUR MIND CUP WILL EVENTUALLY WEAKEN
YOU SPIRITUALLY. NOW, SUCH THINGS
MAY NOT BE SINFUL; HOWEVER, YOU’RE NOT BECOMING
ANY STRONGER IN THE LORD, NOR ARE YOU TAKING ON
ANY MORE LIVING REALITY. IN FACT, SUCH THINGS
INDULGED IN TOO MUCH WILL BECOME A DISTRACTION
AND A HINDRANCE IN YOUR- IN YOUR
RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PERSON OF
THE HOLY SPIRIT. WHY? BECAUSE YOUR MIND IS
DIVIDED FROM DIVINITY, AND YOUR TIME WITH DIVINITY
IS BEING TAKEN AWAY. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:17
INSTRUCTS US, “PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.” I OFTEN USED TO WONDER
WHAT THAT MEANT- ALWAYS PRAYING,
NEVER STOPPING? BUT IF YOU BREAK
DOWN WHAT PRAYER IS, PRAYER IS JUST
TALKING TO GOD, AND GOD GIVING HIS
THOUGHTS TO YOU. IN ORDER TO TALK
TO SOMEONE, THEY HAVE TO HAVE YOUR
MIND’S ATTENTION. SO, WHAT PRAYING
WITHOUT CEASING MEANS IS HAVE A MIND CONNECTED
WITH DIVINITY AT ALL TIMES, THAT AND ANY MOMENT’S
NOTICE, DAY OR NIGHT, YOU CAN DART A PRAYER
AND HEAVEN WILL HEAR, OR GOD CAN GIVE YOU A
THOUGHT AT ANY TIME, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE IT. PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. EPHESIANS 5:16 SAYS, “REDEEMING THE TIME,
BECAUSE THE DAYS ARE EVIL.” YOU HAVE CONTROL
OVER YOUR MIND CUP. DON’T ALLOW THE DEVIL,
SELF AND PEOPLE TO CONTINUALLY FEED YOUR
MIND CUP THAT WHICH IS WEAK AND UNEDIFYING TO YOUR
SPIRITUAL GROWTH; INSTEAD, GO TO GOD’S WORD. LET THE HOLY SPIRIT
FILL YOUR MIND CUP WITH THE PROMISES OF GOD
AND THE THOUGHTS OF GOD. THIS EDIFIES, BLESSES AND
STRENGTHENS THE INNER MAN. THIS LEADS YOU INTO
MORE LIVING REALITY. KEEP YOUR MIND
CONNECTED WITH DIVINITY. THE MORE YOUR MIND IS
STAYED ON THE WORD, THE MORE LIBERTY AND FREEDOM
THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL HAVE TO WORK FOR YOU
AND THROUGH YOU. THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH
WILL USE TRUTH TO FEED YOUR SOUL,
MIND AND SPIRIT TO PRODUCE WONDERFUL
FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE THE WAY HE PRODUCED IT
IN THE LIFE OF JESUS AND IN THE LIVES OF
THE EARLY CHURCH: FRUIT THAT WILL BLESS YOU; FRUIT THAT WILL BLESS
PEOPLE AROUND YOU; FRUIT THAT WILL
BLESS THE KINGDOM. AND UNDER THE LEADERSHIP
OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE WORD OF GOD CAN
PRODUCE MUCH FRUIT IN A PERSON’S LIFE, THAT IS IF THE MIND
IS PROPERLY READY TO RECEIVE THE WORD. NOW THIS TAKES ME TO A PARABLE
MOST OF US KNOW VERY WELL. IN MATTHEW’S
GOSPEL, CHAPTER 13. THIS IS THE PARABLE
OF THE SOWER. AND FOR THE PURPOSE OF
THIS MESSAGE TONIGHT, WHEN YOU GO TO
THIS PARABLE, I WANT YOU TO
THINK OF THE SOWER AS THE PERSON OF
THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE SEED AS THE
WORD OF GOD, AND THE FIELD REPRESENTS
THE MIND OF A CHRISTIAN IN A VARIETY OF
SPIRITUAL CONDITIONS BECAUSE IN A
FIELD YOU CAN FIND SO MANY DIFFERENT
TYPES OF SOIL. NOW THE HOLY SPIRIT
AS THE SOWER, SEEKS TO OPEN UP YOUR
UNDERSTANDING OF TRUTH, TO GUIDE YOU
DEEPER INTO TRUTH, AND USE THE POWER
OF TRUTH FOR YOU AND THROUGH YOU
SO THAT YOU, IN TURN, WILL BEAR
FRUIT FOR THE KINGDOM. HOWEVER, THE SOIL OF THE MIND
MUST BE IN PROPER CONDITION IF THE SEED OF THE WORD
IS TO FIND LODGING AND BEAR FRUIT
FOR THE KINGDOM. NOW THE PARABLE SAYS AS THE
SOWER GOES FORTH TO SOW SEED, SOME FELL BY THE WAYSIDE
AND BIRDS CARRIED IT AWAY RESULTING IN NO HARVEST. OTHER SEED FELL
UPON STONY GROUND THAT LACKED DEPTH OF SOIL RESULTING IN THE
ROOTS OF THE FRUIT GROWING VERY SHALLOW. THEN UNDER THE INTENSE
HEAT OF THE SUN, THE FRUIT WAS SCORCHED
BECAUSE IT LACKED DEEP ROOTS, AND THE FRUIT WITHERED AWAY. MORE SEED FELL UNDER-
AMONG THORNS IN THE SOIL, AND WHEN THE FRUIT SPRUNG
UP, THE THORNS SPRUNG UP, AND THE FRUIT WAS
EVENTUALLY CHOKED OUT BY THE THORNS THAT
GREW UP IN ITS MIDST. BUT FINALLY, THERE WAS SEED
THAT FELL ON GOOD GROUND AND BROUGHT FORTH AN ABUNDANCE
OF FRUIT FOR THE SOWER. IT SAYS SOME A
HUNDREDFOLD, SOME SIXTYFOLD,
SOME THIRTYFOLD. TONIGHT, I ASK YOU: WHAT KIND OF SOIL DOES
YOUR MIND POSSESS? DOES THE HOLY
SPIRIT HAVE LIBERTY TO USE THE POWER
OF GOD’S WORD TO BRING YOU INTO
MORE LIVING REALITY, AND TO PRODUCE AN
ABUNDANCE OF FRUIT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD? IN THE PARABLE
OF THE SOWER, THE WORD SEED THAT WAS
CAST BY THE WAYSIDE: NOW THIS REPRESENTS A
MIND SO FULL OF BATTLES, FEARS, DOUBTS,
OPPRESSION AND UNBELIEF THAT THE WORD FINDS NO
LODGING WHATSOEVER, AND THE MENTAL
SPIRITS CAN IMMEDIATELY CARRY IT AWAY
FROM THE MIND WITHOUT ANY HARVEST
BEING PRODUCED. HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOUR
MIND IN THIS CONDITION? YOUR MIND FULL AND OVERFLOWING
WITH WEAK, WORTHLESS THOUGHTS, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS
NOTHING TO WORK WITH. MAYBE YOU GO INTO
YOUR PRAYER CLOSET, SIT DOWN WITH THE WORD OF
GOD AND IT FINDS NO LODGING; THE ENEMY STEALS IT AWAY,
THAT IT CAN PRODUCE NO GOOD RESULTS FOR
YOU OR THE KINGDOM. SOME SEED OF THE WORD THAT
FELL ONTO STONY GROUND REPRESENTS THE WORD
WORKING IN A MIND WITH NO SPIRITUAL DEPTH. A PERSON WITH SUCH A
MIND CAN BE SAVED, EVEN BAPTIZED WITH
THE HOLY GHOST; HOWEVER, THEIR MIND HAS
SO LITTLE SPIRITUAL SOIL THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT
CAN WORK WITH. THESE STONY MINDS ARE SPIRITUALLY
SHALLOW AND IMMATURE. THESE STONY MINDS DO
NOT HUNGER AND THIRST FOR THE THINGS OF GOD, THEY’RE NOT WILLING TO MAKE
THE SACRIFICES TO OBTAIN THEM. THESE STONY MINDS ARE NOT
SOBER, THEY’RE NOT QUIET- ALWAYS RESTLESS, ALWAYS MOVING
FROM ONE THING TO ANOTHER– THAT WHICH IS
UNRELATED TO DIVINITY. THESE STONY MINDS ARE
UNABLE TO THINK DEEP. SO, WHEN THE SEED OF
THE WORD IS SOWN, IT IS GLADLY
ACCEPTED INITIALLY; HOWEVER, BECAUSE
OF THE CONDITION OF THE MIND’S SOIL, THE
WORD CAN ONLY SINK SO DEEP, NO REAL ROOT SYSTEM
IS DEVELOPED. THE ROOTS OF THE WORD RUN
SHALLOW IN SUCH A LIFE. THESE INDIVIDUALS APPEAR
STABLE AND STRONG IN THE LORD ON THE SURFACE, BUT WITHIN, THEY’RE
SPIRITUALLY WEAK AND SHALLOW. SO, WHEN TESTING
TIME ARRIVES, WHEN THE SUN OF TRIALS,
TRIBULATION AND PERSECUTION RISES HIGH IN THE SKY, THE TRUTH ABOUT SUCH
PEOPLE IS REVEALED; FOR THE HEAT OF THE SUN
BECOMES SO INTENSE, THESE CHRISTIANS
BECOME OFFENDED. THEY BECOME OFFENDED
AT GOD’S PEOPLE OR GOD’S TRUTH, OR
MAYBE, EVEN GOD HIMSELF. THEIR WEAKNESS AND CORRUPTION
BEGINS TO MANIFEST, RESULTING IN
THEM TURNING AWAY AND THEIR FRUIT
BEING DESTROYED. NOW THE SEED OF THE
WORD THAT FALLS IN THE MIDST OF THORN SEED: THIS SOIL REPRESENTS A
MIND THAT HAS ALLOWE- THAT HAS ALLOWED SELFISHNESS
AND EGO TO TAKE ROOT WITHIN. THEY HAVE ALLOWED
THE CARES OF LIFE OR THE DESIRES OF WEALTH TO PREOCCUPY THEIR
THOUGHT LIFE, THEY CONSUME
THEIR DAILY LIFE. ACTUALLY, THORN SEED IN
THE MIND CAN REPRESENT ANYTHING IN THIS LIFE THAT
WOULD DISTRACT A PERSON AND CAUSE THEM TO NEGLECT
THE PERSON OF THE HOLY GHOST AND TIME SPENT
WITH GOD’S WORD. WHEN THORN SEED TAKES
HOLD IN THE MIND, IT CHOKES OUT THE
POWER OF GOD’S WORD, IT CHOKES OUT THE LIVING
REALITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:19, “QUENCH NOT THE, SPIRIT.” EPHESIANS 5:16, AGAIN, “REDEEMING THE TIME,
BECAUSE THE DAYS ARE EVIL.” SUCH THORNY MINDS
HAVE ALLOWED THEIR TIME, THEIR ATTENTION AND ENERGY
TO BE CONTINUOUSLY DIVIDED WITH SELFISH DESIRES
AND THE CARES OF LIFE. THORN SEED CAN
APPEAR INNOCENT, BUT IF YOU LET THEM
TAKE ROOT IN THE MIND, IT WILL SPRING UP, AND THEY WILL TAKE HOLD OF
YOUR MIND AND YOUR LIFE. NOW OTHER THINGS
AND PEOPLE TAKE ON AN INAPPROPRIATE
PRIORITY IN YOUR DAILY LIFE, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
IS NEGLECTED, QUENCHED WITHIN YOU, UNABLE TO PERFORM HIS
DUTIES IN YOUR LIFE, AND THE POWER OF GOD’S
WORD IS CHOKED OUT. THIS RESULTS IN A LIFE
WITHOUT LIVING REALITY BEARING LITTLE IF NO FRUIT
AT ALL FOR THE KINGDOM. BUT THE SEED THAT
FELL ON GOOD GROUND REPRESENTS THE WORD THAT FINDS LODGING IN
THE MIND OF CHRIST: A MIND WITH DEEP RICH SOIL, A MIND FREE OF
STONES AND THORNS; THIS IS A MIND THAT THE
PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN WORK WITH TO BEAR
AN ABUNDANCE OF FRUIT FOR GOD’S KINGDOM. THIS KIND OF MIND
IS A SOBER MIND. 1 PETER 1:13, “WHEREFORE GIRD UP
THE LOINS OF YOUR MIND, BE SOBER, AND
HOPE TO THE END FOR THE GRACE THAT IS
TO BE BROUGHT UNTO YOU AT THE REVELATION
OF JESUS CHRIST.” 1 THESSALONIANS 5:6, “THEREFORE LET US NOT
SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH
AND BE SOBER.” THIS KIND OF MIND
THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN WORK WITH IS A
QUIET, STILL MIND. 1 THESSALONIANS 4:11,
THE “A” PART, “AND THAT YE
STUDY TO BE QUIET, AND TO DO YOUR
OWN BUSINESS.” IN OTHER WORDS, TRAIN AND DISCIPLINE YOUR MIND TO GET QUIET AND STILL
IN THIS RESTLESS AGE, AND MIND YOUR
OWN BUSINESS, NOT THE BUSINESS
OF OTHER PEOPLE. PSALM 4:4, “STAND IN AWE,
AND SIN NOT: COMMUNE WITH YOUR OWN
HEART UPON YOUR BED, AND BE STILL. SELAH.” PSALM 46:10 “A”, “BE STILL, AND KNOW
THAT I AM GOD.” A MIND THAT THE HOLY
SPIRIT CAN WORK WITH IS A MIND THAT
THINKS DEEP. PSALM 92:5, “O LORD, HOW GREAT
ARE THY WORKS! AND THY THOUGHTS
ARE VERY DEEP.” A MIND THAT THE HOLY
SPIRIT CAN WORK WITH IS A MIND EMPTIED OF
WEAK, HUMAN REASONING, AND REPLACED WITH
THE THOUGHTS OF GOD. ISAIAH 55:9, “FOR AS THE HEAVENS ARE
HIGHER THAN THE EARTH, SO ARE MY WAYS HIGHER
THAN YOUR WAYS, AND MY THOUGHTS THAN
YOUR THOUGHTS.” AND A MIND THAT THE HOLY
SPIRIT CAN WORK WITH IS A MIND EMPTIED OF EGO AND FULL OF
DIVINE HUMILITY. JESUS SAYS IN
MATTHEW 18:2-4, “AND JESUS CALLED A
LITTLE CHILD UNTO HIM, AND SET HIM IN THE MIDST
OF THEM, AND SAID, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU,
EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED, AND BECOME AS
LITTLE CHILDREN, YE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. WHOSOEVER THEREFORE
SHALL HUMBLE HIMSELF AS THIS LITTLE CHILD, THE SAME IS GREATEST IN
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.” EGO IS OF THE DEVIL- GOD WANTS NO PART OF IT. AND HOW MANY TIMES,
GOD ONLY KNOWS, HAS HIS PLAN BEEN
HINDERED OR RUINED IN A PERSON’S
LIFE BECAUSE AS GOD WOULD BEGIN TO USE
THEM AND THEIR TALENT, THEY BECAME LIFTED UP
IN THEIR OWN EYES, AND GOD WOULD BE
FORCED TO BACK AWAY. THE THORNS OF EGO FILL THE
MIND TO QUENCH THE SPIRIT AND THE POWER
AND LIFE OF GOD. TO BE USED OF GOD AND BEAR
FRUIT FOR HIS KINGDOM AS THE WORD DECLARES
THERE’S A PRICE TO PAY. LOOK AT JESUS. PHILIPPIANS 2:6-8, “WHO, BEING IN THE
FORM OF GOD, THOUGHT IT NOT ROBBERY
TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD: BUT MADE HIMSELF
OF NO REPUTATION, AND TOOK UPON HIM THE
FORM OF A SERVANT, AND WAS MADE IN THE
LIKENESS OF MEN: AND BEING FOUND IN
FASHION AS A MAN, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF, AND
BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, EVEN THE DEATH
OF THE CROSS.” TO GO THROUGH THE DOOR
OF DIVINE HUMILITY, TO CROSS THAT THRESHOLD,
TO BE USED OF GOD, ONE MUST GET DOWN ON
ALL FOURS, SO TO SPEAK, WITH THEIR FACE
IN THE GROUND TO CROSS THAT THRESHOLD; FOR A PERSON WILL ONLY
GO AS HIGH IN THE LORD AS THEY’RE WILLING TO GO
LOW IN DIVINE HUMILITY. MATTHEW 23:11-12, “BUT HE THAT IS GREATEST AMONG
YOU SHALL BE YOUR SERVANT. AND WHOSOEVER SHALL EXALT
HIMSELF SHALL BE ABASED; AND HE THAT SHALL HUMBLE
HIMSELF SHALL BE EXALTED.” IN CLOSING, JESUS
TAUGHT HIS FOLLOWERS MANY LESSONS IN
DIVINE HUMILITY, ONE OF WHICH IS FOUND
IN LUKE, CHAPTER 10. AND HERE IN THIS CHAPTER,
IT TELLS US HOW JESUS SENT OUT THE 70 BY TWOS
TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL. JESUS SENT THEM WITH POWER
AND AUTHORITY OVER DEVILS, SICKNESSES AND DISEASES. AND AS THEY
RETURNED TO JESUS UPON FULFILLING THIS
DIVINE MISSION, THEY DECLARED, “LORD,
EVEN THE DEVILS ARE SUBJECT UNTO US
THROUGH THY NAME.” BUT IN SIMPLICITY, JESUS REPLIED
IN LUKE 10:20, “NOTWITHSTANDING IN
THIS REJOICE NOT, THAT THE SPIRITS ARE
SUBJECT UNTO YOU; BUT RATHER REJOICE, BECAUSE YOUR NAMES ARE
WRITTEN IN HEAVEN.” IN OTHER WORDS, DON’T
REJOICE AND BE LIFTED UP BY THIS POWER GIVEN UNTO
YOU TO BUILD GOD’S KINGDOM, BUT REJOICE IN ALL HUMILITY
BEFORE THE HEAVENLY FATHER THAT HE HAS WRITTEN
YOUR NAME IN HEAVEN, AND YOU ARE A PART
OF GOD’S KINGDOM. SINNER AND BACKSLIDER, LISTENING TO THIS
MESSAGE TONIGHT BY WAY OF
TELEVISION OR RADIO, YOU HAVE NO PART
IN GOD’S KINGDOM AS LONG AS SIN
REMAINS WITHIN YOU. BUT THERE’S POWER IN THE
DIVINE BLOOD OF JESUS TO SET YOU FREE; IT’S WHY JESUS
CAME AND DIED. PRAY THIS PRAYER
WITH ME RIGHT NOW. SAY, “OH, GOD, [AUDIENCE
REPEATS PRAYER THROUGHOUT] I CONFESS ALL OF
MY SIN BEFORE YOU. I’M SO SORRY, LORD,
THAT I HAVE FAILED YOU. BUT I HAVE COME HOME TO SERVE YOU THE
REST OF MY LIFE. AND I BELIEVE
THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS THAT WASHES AWAY
ALL OF MY SIN.” SAY, “COME INTO
MY HEART, JESUS! COME INTO MY
HEART, JESUS!” AND IF YOU MEANT THAT
PRAYER, HE’S YOURS TONIGHT. AND NOW, FRIEND, YOU
CAN HAVE THE MIRACLE, THE HEALING THAT YOU
NEED RIGHT NOW. DIVINE BLOOD
WAS SPILLED, NOT ONLY FOR THE
SALVATION OF YOUR SOUL, BUT FOR THE HEALING
OF YOUR BODY; IT WAS A TWOFOLD ATONEMENT. AND YOU LISTENING
BY WAY OF RADIO: IF YOU’RE SICK IN BODY, PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR
LISTENING DEVICE. YOU WATCHING BY
WAY OF TELEVISION, IF YOU ARE SICK IN BODY, PUT YOUR HAND AGAINST
MINE ON THE SCREEN AS A FORM OF
LAYING ON OF HANDS. “LORD, IN THE
NAME OF JESUS, I BRING THOSE BEFORE YOU
NOW THAT ARE SICK IN BODY. GOD, LAY A HEALING
HAND UPON EACH ONE; DELIVER THEM AND
SET THEM FREE FOR YOUR HONOR AND GLORY. IN THE HOLY BLOOD-NAME
OF JESUS, HEAL! HEAL! HEAL! LET THAT VIRTUE
FLOW, OH, LORD, AND MAKE THEM WELL FOR
YOUR HONOR AND GLORY. IN THE NAME OF
JESUS, AND AMEN.” AND, FRIEND, WATCH
EVERY IMPROVEMENT; GIVE GOD THE PRAISE
AND THE GLORY. AND ONE GREAT WAY
TO DO THAT IS WRITE AND LET US KNOW WHAT
GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU. ♪ (ANNOUNCER)
