Part 1 : The Power of Thought
Every major accomplishment or change on earth began as a thought that becomes a belief in the heart of a living person.
The world is changed and set in order or disorder by the thoughts that become belief in the hearts of the people on earth.
Thoughts that become beliefs in the heart can change us within and then grow into actions that affect change in the world around us.
As thoughts become words spoken into the world and to other people a natural supernatural work begins to affect change in the world.
The spoken word begins to change the belief and actions of others that begins to alter the course of life in this world.
Even the smallest and the greatest as well the best and the worst things on earth begin as a thought in someone’s heart and mind.
Therefore, every achievement or world condition such as: war or peace, great cities, huge structures such as sky scraper buildings and gigantic bridges begins with a thought.
Even the smallest movements begin with a thought, such as saying something or getting up in the morning, or my arising from this recliner in which I am now seated as well as what I will have for a snack or lunch.
Powerful Secrets Hidden in Plain Sight
God has revealed powerful secret hidden mysteries in recent times. The enemy of God, Satan, the devil, has stolen these powerful world-changing secrets from the people of God and used them against the plan of God in His people.
Cunningly devised diversions and alternate twisted schemes have blinded the minds of much of the population on earth to the ultimate life in The Kingdom of God on earth.
A generation of deceived people are ready to hear and receive the ultimate power of heaven’s truth.
I believe that God is speaking now in this writing and in the voice of many awakening men and women of God the revealing of the hidden mysteries of the reality of taking back what the enemy has stolen and re-employing the ultimate secrets of God to turn the world into the reality of The Kingdom of God.
I further believe that the method is not to proclaim the devilish works of the enemy amongst our people on earth, but instead to proclaim the deep truths of the revealed workings of God and the joy of the power of heaven coming to earth.
Adjusting our beliefs and practices to the Spirit principles of kingdom living is opening the way for the release of heavenly angels and power beyond anything ever seen before on earth.
Why and how do thoughts change the world?
Where Do Thoughts Come From?
There are only to major realms from which thought enters our minds and hearts, the spirit realm and the natural realm. The natural realm is what we see and hear with our natural eyes and ears.
The spirit realm comes from our spirit deep within us that is seen and heard through our spiritual eyes and ears deep within our being.
Mankind is the only creation of God on earth that was created with both natural and spiritual understanding and the ability to function in both realms.
Mankind is designed for the purpose of receiving the instruction, direction, love, wisdom and power to manage the world from Spirit God and bringing it forth into the natural realm. Mankind is the interface between Spirit God and the natural world.
Mankind is to be workers with Christ in us as heavens agents on earth with authority to release the perfect plan of God’s order on earth as it is in heaven.
Then God said,
“ ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth’,” Genesis 2:26-28.
Thoughts are pictures and feelings or understandings that carry seed power to multiply and grow into the natural realm. Words are a media for transmitting thoughts or ideas.
Words are seeds of written or spoken coding of images and feelings that are understandings.
The heart of man is the soil in which a seed planted will grow into maturity of the fruit of change in the world.
Thoughts come mostly from what we see and hear either in the natural or in the spiritual.
Since the fall of Adam when he chose to obey the voice of the serpent, the original perfect state of oneness with God was broken, and the ability to directly commune with God and hear Him was lost.
Prophets experienced The Holy Spirit coming upon them temporarily to bring a word from Spirit God and speak it to the natural ears of the people. Priest had to carry out natural sacrificial offerings for the people to show their faith toward God.
After the redemption of man by Christ Jesus, restored man can now potentially commune with God and hear Him directly.
Man can now choose to hear either of two voices speaking to man’s spirit from the spirit realm. The two voices are the voice of God or the voice of the serpent, the devil.
The words (thoughts, images, feelings, understandings) that we hear and see in the natural realm all source from either God or the devil.
Every thought we hear or see in the natural or in the spirit is either from the light of God or from the darkness of the devil. There is no such thing as a neutral origin of thought. However, there can be mixed or mingled thoughts.
Words are not just letters arranged on a page. Words are light and darkness expressed in all forms of communication such as pictures, images, body language, voice tone, music, color, shapes, smell, touch, and more.
Words are living spirit seeds that grow within man and out from man into the world to grow The Kingdom of God or the counterfeit kingdom of the devil.
The seed grows into a fruitful plant that multiplies the number of seed to be sown in the hearts of others in the world.
The heart of man is pictured in scripture as spiritual soil. The heart soil of man will grow whatever seed is planted into it.
Like the natural fertile soil of the earth, the soil of man’s heart will grow fruitful trees and beautiful flowers, or it will grow thorn bushes and weeds according to the seeds (words) planted into it. (Matthew 13:18-23).
Changing What We Think, Believe, and Say
We cannot truly change bad behavior by trying hard. Nor can we change bad behavior in others by trying to force them to change. And we all know that it is very hard, if not impossible, to establish good behavior by trying hard.
We cannot bring forth The Kingdom of God in the people of the world by confrontation. The nations of the world at this time are primarily driven by the false kingdom of darkness.
They did not get that way by trying. They got that way by what they heard and saw, that which they grew to believe.
A nation of people that do not think upon the things from Spirit God will not be a godly people. Their only other source is the false kingdom of the devil.
Their thoughts will be evil and hearts filled with ungodly beliefs that affect their speech and actions.
We all are a product of what we have been taught by seeing and hearing. It is a known fact that most of a person’s character is formed as small children.
It is also a fact that what a person hears or sees repeatedly, especially for a respected source, will become what they believe. It will become their reality.
Especially small children are quickly formed by hearing words and seeing things that are from God or not from God. There is no neutral ground that which does not come from God comes from the darkness.
My nation of America along with many others have been listening to the wrong voice and are deceived to believe many false words or concepts. One especially deceptive one is to believe that there is an acceptable secular neutral way of life without God.
The generations of children have been taught to listen to the voice of humanistic intelligence and to disrespect hearing from Spirit God believing it to be of no value and even harmful to the person and to social order.
What Will Change the World to The Kingdom of God?
Hearing and seeing the word of The Kingdom of God.
How do we hear the word of The Kingdom of God? By The Holy Spirit of God.
Most Christians do not truly know what The Kingdom of God really is and what it is not. Only by intimate relationship with Spirit God can we discern what is a true word of the kingdom.
Spirit God within us can guide us and discern for us that which is of the real Kingdom.
We must then shut down all other voices or inputs by turning away quickly and turning to hear the voice of God.
Remember that all words are from one source or the other, and there are no neutral communications. Also, keep in mind that words are living seeds that will grow in our hearts if received.
We need to become first receivers and then proclaimers of the true Kingdom of God in natural words with Spirit power of Love and Truth while showing forth The Word of The Kingdom of God in demonstration of His naturally supernatural reality.
“But seek first The Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you,” Matthew 6:33.
