Are you ready for this? Because it will cut across many religious doctrines, but the truth will set you free if you receive it. You have heard many times, “As man thinks in his heart, so is he,” Proverbs 23:7.
Now allow Me use a modern term for heart. As a man thinks in his subconscious mind so is he, Proverbs 23:7. You were created with two minds, a conscious and sub conscious mind. The conscious mind is what you aware of and you deliberately function with every day. Your subconscious mind is what you are not aware of, but it determines who you really are. Your conscious mind feeds through your five senses, but your subconscious mind is fed by the repetition of what is entering your conscious mind and you never realize it. But now when someone or something pushes your emotions to an extreme, then out of the abundance of the subconscious mind, the mouth speaks, Matthew 12:34.
Most church services are filled with people acting out of their controlled conscious mind, causing them to appear very spiritual. This is fairly easy to maintain for an hour a week. When you say very little and sit and listen as you are told, the subconscious lays dormant. Your real person and your issues are never dealt with because the conscious mind is busy covering the subconscious mind with loud AMENs. What is in your subconscious mind comes out when you think no one watching, or when you are angry, or depressed, or tempted in any way.
When you hear ten good things about a person and one negative, the ten good things stay for a short time in the conscious mind and are soon forgotten. The one negative slips undetected into your subconscious mind (heart) and reappears every time you see the person.
Soon you build a resentment in your heart (subconscious mind) which will lead to separation from My Father, Mark 11:25-2. What you casually listened to and watched last month will be forgotten by the conscious mind but I promise you it’s stored away in your subconscious mind and becomes the major factor in all your future decision making. Many nice people are shocked to find themselves suddenly in jail, all because they were unaware of what was in their subconscious mind and triggered by their emotions.
True faith does not lie in your conscious mind but in your subconscious mind. This is why most western believers do not see many miracles. They expect My word to produce faith because they quote it or memorize it, using the conscious mind. But it does not go down into the subconscious mind, and make a change, for lack of meditation.
Watching movies, TV, and reading have a meditating effect on your subconscious mind. Listen to gossip, leads to judging which has a meditating effect. Your Salvation rests in the conversion of your subconscious mind. Your confession of your mouth comes from your conscious mind, but you must also believe in your subconscious mind. “For with the subconscious mind man believeth unto righteousness; and with the conscious mind using his mouth, confession is made unto salvation,” Romans 10:10. In other words your conscious mind continually confesses what you believe in your subconscious mind.
This is why praying a simple prayer with your conscious mind will not convert the subconscious mind. You are saved only if your subconscious responds to the drawing of My Father.
Most preachers work hard to convert the conscious mind using logic and mechanical repetition, but conversion comes after the the subconscious mind has responded to the drawing of My Father.
Always remember you are what you spend the most time thinking about. “My word must not depart out of your conscious mind using your mouth; but you must also meditate therein day and night, to convert your subconscious mind, so that you do according to all that is written therein: then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success,” Joshua 1:8.
