Third Eye


Third Eye- Satanic Portal- Demonic Realms

Mystical Esoteric

Third eye (also known as the Inner eye) is Antichrist knowledge and Strong Delusion

Pat Holliday, Phd

“The 3rd or Inner Eye – A metaphysical opening which refers to the 6th chakra (serpent power), that leads to higher consciousness. A new age symbol of enlightenment.” Wikipedia

The Third Eye and/or Pineal Gland

Attempted activation of the third eye, or pineal gland, is a common practice in most new age theology.

The idea of the third eye in connection to the pineal gland of the brain is popular among much new age teaching. The way it is often presented to Christians is by saying it is the pineal gland that is activated during prayer. Something also sometimes said is that there is a worldwide conspiracy to calcify the pineal gland, usually by fluoridated water, thereby preventing us from being able to pray effectively. Think of where this leads. This teaching essentially states if you aren’t getting your prayers answered or if you feel God is far from you, it is not because of a possible sin in your life or something you need to repent of; it is due to forces outside of your control, so you might as well accept it or find a way around it. The way around it they suggest is usually meditation, opening chakras, and opening yourself to the universal connection we all share. Of course, the biblical solution is much simpler and completely different. Repent and pray without ceasing. 

Jesus in the Flesh

Jesus most assuredly came in the flesh.

This is a big one and, within new age teaching, is usually saved for last because it is a direct attack on a very important tenant of Christian belief. If a person leads with this, chances are they will lose half the audience immediately. However, if a person works to this gradually, they have a higher chance at convincing the majority. There are many ways this is presented, but the basic premise is to deny the flesh aspect of Jesus Christ. Usually people teaching this will say something along the lines of “the pregnancy of Mary was an implantation and not a conception”. They will deny that Mary, from a biological level, had any part in the conception of Jesus. Simply speaking, Mary didn’t provide the egg. They will say that an already-conceived organism, such as a zygote or a fetus, was implanted into Mary. The problem with this is it completely denies Jesus Christ came in the flesh, because it denies the entire flesh aspect of His conception. 1 John 1-3 states: ii
  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. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 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.

    Third-eye Strong Delusion Rising

    Deception—and even the strong delusions that will characterize the end times (2 Thess. 2:11)— is rapidly rising in the body of Christ. iii
  2. Thessalonians 2:15 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

Audio Message – Why I resigned from the Hear the Watchman Conference – Nathan’s Expose’

I do not approve of or promote this new Christian third eye awakening doctrine, last night Zoe is in favor of, and was talking about it on Watchmen Radio-Richard Keltner. I have nothing to do with it. And I consider it occult. Dr. Pat Ruth Holliday.. Will be writing an article about this, in the next few weeks. Also consider Nathan Leal has some information about it.

Audio Message

Note – this audio message is going to have a short shelf life. I do not want to have it lingering. It is too painful. But the items must be shared with the body of Christ. Listen to it before it gets deleted. Nathan

Why I resigned from Hear the Watchman – Nathan’s Expose.

On this program, I will share why I resigned from the Hear the Watchman Conference.

Deception is percolating in today’s remnant community, and the new age heresy is trying to grab a foothold.

This message is an honest appraisal that reveals that portions of today’s remnant community are
suffering with spiritual confusion.

Deception is attacking the body of Christ and it must be addressed. To those who have the ears to hear.

What is the Third-eye?

It is not a Christian concept nor is it found in the Scriptures as a valid gift of the Holy Spirit. I have been in the deliverance ministry since the mid-seventies and I can tell you that every deliverance ministry that I have ever read their materials, all agree that the Third-eye is occult.

Omega Man Radio. How to Purify and Activate Your Third Eye Sunday, April 20, 2014 11:03. iv

Surprisingly, a few internet deliverance ministers are now promoting this new Christian third eye awakening doctrine open your Third-eye so that you can hear more clearly from God!.... How to Purify and Activate Your Third Eye | Alternative - Reply then is how we contact God!)
Apr 20, 2014 –“This Third Eye activates when exposed to light, and has a number of ....” Evangelist John Ramirez with Shannon Davis of Omega Man Radio. “How to Purify and Activate Your Third Eye” Sunday, April 20, 2014 11:03. “We’ve discussed the pineal gland a little before, but we’d like to get into a little more depth, especially as our conscious-minded friends make the wise decision to take good care of what is known as the Third Eye.

Omega Man Radio continued, “Straight from Wikipedia, the biological aspect of the pineal gland defines it as “a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.” Also on Wikipedia, it notes that it is also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis, conarium or the Third Eye, with the latter being the aspect most spiritually-minded people focus on. This Third Eye activates when exposed to light, and has a number of biological functions in controlling the bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body’s thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. All in all, a very important gland! v

For a long time, the biological role of the pineal gland remained unknown, but mystical traditions and esoteric schools long held this area in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. In this spiritual aspect, it is a necessary step to awaken the Third Eye, which will feel like a pressure at the base of the brain. It is important because activating it is to raise one’s frequency and moving into higher consciousness – all is a consciousness experience perceived through the Eye of Time or Third Eye. The Third Eye is considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, and because of this, the pineal gland has been seen as a gateway that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.

Awakening the third eye acts as a “Stargate.”

So how do you activate it? Meditation, visualization yoga, and all forms of out of body travel open the Third Eye and are held to allow a person to see things that are beyond the physical.

A list of the benefits and abilities the Third Eye brings include clarity, concentration, perspicuity, bliss, intuition, decisiveness and insight, as well as:
  • Vivid/lucid dreaming
  • More effective astral projection
  • Better sleep quality
  • Enhanced imagination
  • Enabling Aura viewing, seeing energy, seeing beings, and seeing with eyes closed
  • Clear channels and ability to feel energy more efficiently
However, if a person is not taking care of her Third Eye, all of this is cut off from her. Calcification of the pineal gland will definitely occur without regular detox. Most people’s pineal glands are heavily calcified by the time they are 17 years old, so much so that they show up as a lump of calcium during an MRI. Calcification is the build-up of calcium phosphate crystals in various parts of the body. This process occurs because of toxins in everyday products, like fluoride (found in public water systems and toothpaste), hormones and additives (found in processed foods), and sugars and artificial sweeteners (found pretty much everywhere). There is some speculation that cell phones are also part of the problem, thanks to high concentrations of radiation. And a closed Third Eye is no joke. In Hindu tradition, it is known as “Anja Chakra” and is credited with bringing confusion, uncertainty, cynicism, pessimism, jealousy, envy and one sidedness to a person’s life.”

The Third-eye is not a Christian- Biblical based Doctrine

Many Christians are being led by a new heretical occult doctrine that challenges them to meditate to metaphysically opening their Third Eye which refers to the 6th chakra (brow) that leads to higher consciousness. The Third Eye is the new age symbol of enlightenment; a psychic ability connected to the occult. Dictionary. Com defines occult as knowledge of secret or supernatural powers, beyond the range of ordinary senses, or secret/hidden information only available to the initiated. vii

2 Timothy 4:3, For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”

Hindu tradition associates the third eye with the ajna, or brow, chakra.[1]

In Taoism and many traditional Chinese religious sects such as Chan (a cousin to the Zen school), "third eye training" involves focusing attention on the point between the eyebrows with the eyes closed, and while the body is in various qigong postures. The goal of this training is to allow students to tune into the correct "vibration" of the universe and gain a solid foundation on which to reach more advanced meditation levels. Taoism teaches that the third
traditions, the third eye is the frontal part of the "Upper Dan Tien" (upper cinnabar field) and is given the evocative name "muddy pellet".

According to the Christian teaching of Father Richard Rohr, the concept of the third eye is a metaphor for non-dualistic thinking; the way the mystics see. In Rohr's concept, mystics employ the first eye (sensory input such as sight) and the second eye (the eye of reason, meditation, and reflection), "but they know not to confuse knowledge with depth, or mere correct information with the transformation of consciousness itself. The mystical gaze builds upon the first two eyes—and yet goes further." Rohr refers to this level of awareness as "having the mind of

In Buddhism , in their different versions there are techniques and practices involving the development of that capacity even if the ultimate goal is to understand the existing reality as it is; unsatisfactory, impermanent and unsubstantial ( non-self or anatta ). Mahayana Buddhism and in the Tibetan practices such knowledge tends to be more valued than in Theravada Buddhism, although there are techniques to open the " divine eye " or to clean the vision. [11] viii

Christians can have Demon

Now I am convinced not only that a Christian can have demons but also that there are demons that operate in the realm of theology, encouraging us to argue and debate endlessly over doctrine rather than meeting the needs of people who are hurting. Demons actually help promote the teaching that a Christian cannot have a demon, because they gain strength from staying hidden. They can operate in their destructive ways without being challenged!

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”-- 2 Peter 2:3.

experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers. ix

Demonic Doorway

According to those who practice New Age it’s the psychic ability connected to the occult. Through meditation one opens himself up to the spirit realm and it is through this process that one achieves an altered state of consciousness. The emptying of your mind and the opening of a ‘doorway’ which I might suggest is a “demonic doorway”. x
  1. In Buddhism the middle eye is known as the Shiva.
  2. In Hinduism it is the eye of clairvoyance.
  3. In Egypt it is known as the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Osiris.
  4. In Freemasonry it is the All Seeing Eye.
  5. The same one that is found on our dollar bill.
But no matter the ‘religion’ it is applied to, the meaning of the eye remains the same… the passing into a spiritual portal for enlightenment… least so they believe….

In Genesis 3:5-7 5 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. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

The Hebrew word for eyes is not plural but singular. In other words the serpent was claiming that their eye would open and their ‘knowledge’ would broaden. This verse was not talking about the physical organ but the eye of the soul. It is likely, then, that many people today are practicing the same lie Satan fed Adam and Eve, that of opening their ‘third eye’. xi

Opening the Gate between Two Worlds

Many (even some heretical Christians) today believe that opening the ‘third eye’ or ‘pineal gland’ is a harmless spiritual practice that is necessary for spiritual maturity, but they are dead wrong. In truth practicing things like horoscopes, psychic abilities, and ‘taping’ into the ‘third eye’ openly invite demons to enter their lives. These deceiving spirits and hypocritical liars then distract them from the truth of Christ. xii

Satan Wants to Confuse the Deliverance Ministry

For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted- you may well put up with it! --2 Corinthians 11:4

There is a counterfeit movement rising among deliverance ministries on the internet called………
One of the “deliverance ministries’” pushing this new heresy is a radio talk show host, Omega Man.

Spiritual Transformation

The word transformation means a shift, or a qualitative change, a transfer from the original spiritual tenets to a switch over to a new religious belief system.

Evangelist Derek Prince made this bold statement, “I suppose for every one person the devil deceives by atheism, there must be a thousand persons in hell whom he deceived by religion. False religion has deceived humanity down through the ages, century by century, in untold numbers. And this situation has not changed today.” The Bible warns us very clearly that deceptions of religion are going to increase in a remarkable measure. And those that believe are going to be subjected to every kind of pressure to seduce them from their true faith. He deals with two main forms of deception in this teaching: 1) Departures from Christianity - that is deceptions which claim to have their origin to being Christians, and often lay claim to the title of Christian. 2) Those type of religion or spiritual activity which lay no claim to being Christian
with reference to departures from Christianity. xiii

“You cannot depart from the faith unless you have been “in the faith” (I Tim 4:1:5).

This activity is traced directly to evil spirits or demons. They are called seducing spirits and the teachings they bring forth are called doctrines of demonism. The ultimate goal of these seducing spirits is to win people away from the Lord, Jesus Christ. xiv

Spiritual transformation is still building its avenue into the Christian Church. Astrology, reincarnation, higher planes of being, expanded consciousness; we all are God, pantheism, UFO's and other nutty things. If you like your life guided by the demons out of hell, go New Age! Satan will love you. xv

(II Pet 2:1-3), False teachers in the church, “privily bring in heresy that being damnation.” Heresy is not rejecting Scripture totally; it is choosing how much of the Scriptures you will believe. No heresy that rejected all Scripture would deceive the Christian. What deceptions are those presentations that present? Scripture but reject certain portions of it. The heresies this
Scripture refers to bring damnation. They cost presentations that present Scripture but reject certain portion of it; the heresies that Scripture refers to bring damnation; they cost those who believe them the salvation of their souls. The devil does not begin with denial of the truth; he begins by calling them in question. For example: The serpent did not start with saying “You won’t die.” He did not immediately present the lie. He began by adding the question, “Yea, hathGod said?” In other words, is it really necessary to believe? When Eve entertained his question, then he followed up with a direct denial of what God had said. xvi

Newly devised non scriptural ministry techniques lay the groundwork for these exchanges of the Christian

God tells us that many in the last days will be led astray by doctrines of demons….

1 Timothy.4:1, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”,” 1 Timothy 4:1-3

He also tells us to test the spirits:

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 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. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error,” 1 John 4: 1-6.

Finally stay strong in Christ, put on your armor and resist the Devil

“Put on the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:11

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

Do not be deceived

Jesus warned us not to be deceived. Paul warned us not to be deceived. Peter warned us not to be deceived. John warned us not to be deceived. James warned us not to be deceived. You can hardly read a chapter in the New Testament that doesn't issue a warning against deception. And yet deception is rising in the church.

The problem with deception is that you don't know you are deceived. If you knew you were deceived, you'd walk away from the lie and embrace the truth. Lovers of the truth are less likely
to be deceived, but anyone can fall into deception. And if you think you are above the possibility of falling into deception, you are walking in a deception called pride.

So I challenge you, whether you are a Christian, an atheist, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, an agnostic, or however else you classify your belief system, begin to pray for God to break off any deception that has clouded your soul. Beseech Him by His mercy to deliver you from the grip of deception, to shine light on your mind and to give you discernment. I am praying that over my own life too, in the name of Jesus. xvii

New Age and Satanic Values

The United States of America is filled with the New Age values of the New World Order. This lewdness is literally everywhere from the White house to the-out-house. This once great Jesus Christ- honoring nation has literally been filled with the old occultist value system.

Satan has a counterfeit filling for his believers, and this is the topic of discussion for our program today. Christian author, Constance Cumbey, strongly emphasizes in her book, “The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow” that the one common binding ingredient among all these various groups is their common "mystical experiences.@ xviii

This term refer to the religious teachings common to all these various groups. Whatever name the group is using, they uniformly teach that man can perfect himself through the practice of ancient religious techniques, of meditation and through following the guidance of their own "Guiding Spirits.@ xix

Jude 1:3-4 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.

1 Timothy 4:16, Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Believers Separation

The apostle Peter indicated that many would come in the name of Christ, yet deny Him as both Lord and Savior. The apostle also said that these same apostates would make merchandise of the members of the churches. In other words, like the Nicolatians, they would use the money to gain advantage, (Rev. 2).xx

The Scripture warns us to be careful about companionship with the people of the world. In (II Jn.7), "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist." And then in (II Jn. 9), we see a separation is to be established between the believer and unbeliever; "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."
We are seeing people fall away from Christ left and right. They are in church one night and the next back into world; it terrifying to see a Christian backslide because they usually become like spiritual monsters. One pastor fell away from the pulpit several years ago, today he sits on a bar stool drinking. At the end of the evening, he will take people to his house and continuing to drink while they will watch his old sermons and laugh and mock God together!

Another preacher turned his back on God through adultery. He takes crack and wallows in sin. A brother went to him to try to restore him. He told him that he could get free if he would come to see Dr. Holliday. The preacher said, “Oh no, don’t bring that woman around me, she will cast my sex demons out!” These are truly perilous times.

The Apostle Paul challenges the believer in (Gal. 5:1-8), to "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Behold, I Paul, say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith, for in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not
of him that calleth you.” xxi

How are we saved?

In His life, Jesus is our example. In His death Jesus is our redeemer. In His burial, Jesus is our scapegoat…, (Lev. 16:20-22).

"And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man unto the wilderness. And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness," (Lev. 16:20:22).

In His Resurrection, Jesus is our justification. He has ascended and sits at the right hand of God the Father, and He is our Mediator, our head, (See: Jn. 3:16); (Jn. 2:8, 9); (Acts 16:31); (Rom. 10:9, 10); (Tit. 3:5,6); (Jn. 1:12, 13).

Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and received His blood sacrifice on the cross for your redemption! Jesus died for you!

Renounce Satan’s Power

Verbally denounce Satan and his power and all of his demon hosts and claim authority as a believer priest in the name of Jesus Christ and the authority of His shed blood. (Matt. 18:18).

It is necessary to casting out evils’ spirits in a house or church; it is wise to cleanse spiritually afterward, to head off any trouble which might be caused by spirits remaining ln the place.
  • Forbid devils in Jesus name from staying on the premises
  • Ask God to send His warring angels to make the devils accountable to the name of Jesus.
  • Send them to where Jesus sends them.
  • Forbid them from ever returning.
  • Loose the anointing and power of God in the name of Jesus.

    It is amazing how far Satan has pushed his program of contagion.

  • This causes legal grounds and legal holds to be given to his demons for attacking on their dupes, their homes and families.

It should be easy to spot people who really believe that God exists and Jesus was who he claimed to be, because they should be acting as if God is an ever-present part of their reality, and yet surveys tend to show that there is very little difference in the way people who claim to be Christians behave when compared to others It should be.xxii

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever." —1 John 2:15-17

In verse 21, Jesus said, “Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Jesus said You must do “the will of the Father.” What is the will of God how to be saved?

John 6:40 tells us exactly what the will of God concerning salvation is... “And THIS IS THE WILL of Him [God the Father] that sent Me [God the Son], that everyone which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” Amen and amen! So there you have it, the will of God how to be saved, i.e., to believe on Jesus Christ. The will of God is to BELIEVE... to BELIEVE... to BELIEVE on Jesus Christ, as the Son of God.

"For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things." —Philippians 3:18, 19.

Modern apostates jumble a bunch of Biblical terms into their fruit cocktail of religious music and sermonettes; but fail to present the Biblical Gospel of a man coming to God as a guilty sinner and trusting upon the Lord, apart from all self-righteous works, to be forgiven (Romans 4:5-6; Ephesians 2:8-9). Salvation is not a feeling, nor an experience; it is a miracle of God in response to a sinner's faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ (John 20:31; Romans 10:3-4; Galatians 3:26).

God loves sinners, but He hates sin with a passion and WILL punish those who die in their sins without Christ as Savior.

"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that knows not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ." —2nd Thessalonians 1:8

But God Raised Him From The Dead
"Men and brethren, sons of the family of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, to you the word of this salvation has been sent. "For those who dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they did not know Him, nor even the voices of the Prophets which are read every Sabbath, have fulfilled them in condemning Him.  "And though they found no cause for death in Him, they asked Pilate that He should be put to death.

"Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. "But God raised Him from the dead. Acts 13:26-30

          Apostle Paul was a chosen vessel of Jesus Christ  to bear His  name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. As a result he would suffer many things for Jesus sake. Paul had a genuine deep love of the brethren and it was the prayer and desire of his heart  that the God of peace, who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make His people complete in every good work to do His will, working in  them what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ.

Paul’s passions were to live and die for the Gospel, to serve the brethren and to have an abundant supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ. For the bible records:

But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ;  and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from good will: The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains;  but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.

What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.   For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,  according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.

And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith, that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again. Philippians 1:12-26

Paul seemed to be in a quandary between to live or to die. He had a desire to depart and be with Christ which was far better or to remain in the flesh and help the brethren. But Apostle Paul did not take the fact lightly  the fact of dying or that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, to be  the first man who would have eternal life.

The fact that we should not trust in ourselves in all circumstances and situations but in God who raises the dead was an integral part of Paul’s epistles. Primarily because Apostle Paul knew what it was like to die and be resurrected from the dead.  The bible records:

Then Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.  However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. Acts 14:19-20

Three times Paul was beaten with rods, once he was stoned, and three times he was shipwrecked. Alexander the coppersmith did Paul much harm and he asked that  the Lord repay him according to his works.

So Paul was not talking about the saving and delivering power of God out of his head but out of his real experiences?  He personally knew the God of all comfort who comforted him in his real troubles and tribulations! The bible records:

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.  Corinthians 1:3-5

Paul knew what suffering, trouble and the spilling of blood were in personal terms. As he had experienced much of it. But also etched in Paul’s mind was his participation in the death of Stephen. The bible records:

"You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you. "Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers,  "who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it."

  When they heard these things they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed at him with their teeth.

 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and said, "Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!"

Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."

Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not charge them with this sin." And when he had said this, he fell asleep. Acts 7:51-60

Stephen’s untimely death for the gospel in a way created a martyr syndrome for Apostle Paul who wanted to die also for the gospel. The bible records:

And as we stayed many days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea.  When he had come to us, he took Paul's belt, bound his own hands and feet, and said, "Thus says the Holy Spirit, 'So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owns this belt, and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.' "

 Now when we heard these things, both we and those from that place pleaded with him not to go up to Jerusalem.

Then Paul answered, "What do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."

 So when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, "The will of the Lord be done." Acts 21:10-14

Paul would not be persuaded from going to Jerusalem and even dying there for the name of the Lord Jesus. The Lord Himself appeared to Paul and told Him:

"Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified for Me in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness at Rome." Acts 23:12

Hence at the end of his life Apostle Paul made it to Rome and  he was able to say  that he was  “an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope”  and that he had fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith. The bible records:

For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 

Be diligent to come to me quickly;  for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and has departed for Thessalonica-Crescens for Galatia, Titus for Dalmatia. 2 Timothy 4:6-10

The Mind Of Christ

"For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns-broken cisterns that can hold no water. Jeremiah 2:13

The word of God tells us that we are called to have the mind of Christ daily and constantly. Hence we are to trust God's spirit and no other and not other men! God's word is unchanging:

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.1 Corinthians 2:12-16

There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.  The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.  His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,  Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;  But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.  Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist. Isaiah 11:1-5

"The Lord GOD has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary.   He awakens Me morning by morning,  He awakens My ear  To hear as the learned. The Lord GOD has opened My ear;  And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn away. Isaiah 50:4-5

God is on line to all who care to listen to Him in the early hours of the morning. For those who are attune to the Spirit and walk in God’s ways the Lord gives them the tongue of the learned that they may know how to speak a word in season to him who is wary. He opens their ears to hear as the learned of all that He has to speak to them morning by morning before the bustle, cares, worries and anxiety of life drown things out.

Worries and anxieties are no different than the sins of adultery or sickness; they must be fought against because they rob God’s people access to the voice of God, which is their secret for sweat less triumph. Heaviness, discouragement, or anxiety is a spirit that robs God’s people of His presence, promises and peace and makes them to be a prey in the devil’s hands. Heaviness, discouragement, or anxiety takes them out of their Father’s house (like the prodigal son), and places there where the enemy can flog them. God’s word is unchanging:

"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? "Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  "Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? "So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  "and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. "Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  Matthew 6:25-30

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things. Phillipains 4:6-8

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.  These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:12-16

The carnal mind is enmity with God for it cannot please God. The mind is a battlefield which the enemy tries in infiltrate with many things including negative thoughts and dreams. But God’s people can put on the mind of Christ and think and meditate on whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report.  Nature abhors vacuum. Our mind is never on break; it is either charged with concerns of things of this life or overtaken with affection for the kingdom. Rather than being anxious and concerned with the things of this world, it is be concerned with the things of God and of His kingdom, so every other thing can be “added to you.” God’s word is unchanging:

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew  6:33

"But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Luke 12:21

Blessed is the man  Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;  But his delight is in the law of the LORD,  And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season,  Whose leaf also shall not wither;  And whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:1-3

Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.  Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you. 1 Timothy 4:15

The brain is always engaged, either positively or negatively. All we need to do is to make our choice on what occupies our mind and it should be the word of God. Prosperity is promised to those who delight in the word of God and meditate on it day and night.  When we mediate on something it goes from the realm of the mind which is just usually intellect ascent to the realm of our heart where it becomes faith and moves the mountains out in our lives when it is authoritatively spoken out. Yes, when the word of God is mixed with faith and acted on God’s miracle working power is released to bring about great change. The power in the Word is only released through the process of meditation. Until we ponder on the truth contained in the Word, get an understanding of that Word, and act on it, we cannot display miracles, signs and wonders. God’s word is unchanging:

Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16

The word meditate means "to consider deeply, to reflect upon, to revolve in the mind." It is akin to the physical process of food digestion. Food when eaten undergoes three major processes before the nutrients in it can benefit the body. They are: digestion, absorption and assimilation. Often we think that the taste of food in the mouth and its weight in the stomach is all that there is to food. But until these three processes take place, food taken in offers no value to the body.

Similarly, until the Word of God we hear or read is broken down to assimilable forms and we contact the gems in it, our life can not be bettered by it. The meditation process is what breaks down the Word into assimilable forms, equipping us to walk on the highways of the miraculous. It’s the word of God that breaks into pieces the different rocks in our lifes. God’s word is true:

"Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak;  And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.  Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew,  As raindrops on the tender herb, And as showers on the grass. For I proclaim the name of the LORD: Ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He. Deuteronomy 32:4

Then David spoke to the LORD the words of this song, on the day when the LORD had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. And he said: "The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, My stronghold and my refuge; My Savior, You save me from violence.  I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies. 2 Samuel 22:1-4

"Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:  "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Matthew 7:24-24
