BONDAGES OF THE MIND THAT CREATE ABNORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS, PART 2
The mind and heart of people are really components of the soul. The components of soul include intellect, mind, hearts, emotions, and will. When God tells us to renew our minds, we understand that our minds weren’t automatically renewed when we were born again. We must enact changes. First we must pull down prior images. We have to destroy them according to Jeremiah 23:29, the Word of God is a hammer that breaks down rocky places. They must be broken with the hammer of the Word, burned with the fire of the Word, cleansed by the Blood of Jesus. Then we begin creating a new image, based on the Word of the Living God.
What is normal for the heart? What condition should the mind of believers operate in to be considered normal? Peace! Don’t spend your time worrying about tomorrow. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Peace, calmness, and serenity are the normal operating conditions for our minds.
What does the enemy come to do? To steal, to kill, and to destroy. Where is the battle fought? In the mind of mankind. When the enemy keeps the mind busy, busy, busy, and wandering and wondering—those are abnormal operating conditions for our minds. If our minds are busy or in a state of abnormality, it means our minds are not peaceful, calm, and that our emotions are our master, which enslaves us. We have to learn to fight for peace in our minds. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on June 6, 2021.
Romans 11:34 – Romans 12:2 NKJV
“For who has known the mind of the LORD?
Or who has become His counselor?”
“Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
