It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

I never say how I feel about Myself, I say who I AM.

Get your mind off things that bring you down, put them up where Christ is seated by My right hand. Fix your mind there. Fix your thoughts there. Most people have gotten fixated on the wrong things. And these fixations have become habits that lead into worry, fear, oppression and depression because they just keep coming up in your mind.

For some it is a person in the family whom they must keep living with and serving, for another it is their boss or co-worker who they must see every day at work, for another it is an addiction, for another it is a past sin or abuse that is still ongoing or is gone for many years but still has their attention, and for many it is gossip, talking too much, a bad temper, lying, or a host of other things that you cannot seem to stop though you would like to do so.

It is time you distracted yourself off these distractions. When a baby is crying and fussing what do you do? You try to distract them by holding up pretty toys, sparkly things, talking and singing to them, or holding and rocking them. You have to get their mind and attention on something better.

My prophet Daniel was taken as a prisoner of war to Babylon from Jerusalem and he lived among people who worshipped idols who were always trying to get him put to death by the king who was showing Daniel favor due to his wisdom and skill. But Daniel had a magnificent inner life whereby even though he daily did the duties of his position as an adviser and prefect over the provinces for the king, he drew aside to honor Me, pray to Me, and keep all My laws. His attention was fixed on Me to live for Me each day. So I gave him great revelations and visions of the Messiah’s coming, His death, His resurrection, His ascension, and return to His throne, as well as of the endtimes. He is the prophet I gave the accurate timeline of events in the life of the Messiah and the end of time as you know it. He did not let his mind fixate on the negative behavior and atmosphere around him. He lived at another level. His mind was above though he was a man of excellence in his daily duties as well. He really did not care how he felt but what My will for his life was each day. He did fret even when thrown in a den of hungry lions. He just raised his mind to Me and I sent an angel to shut all the lions’ mouths so that Daniel had a good night.

Now listen to Me for I am going to show you the way to have the best. I have set a banquet before you. Why would you take less when you can have it all? And why would you go to a table that makes you lose all when you could go to the table that gives you all?

On the mountain height where the paths meet, at the crossroads wisdom cries out to you, Proverbs 8:1-11, directing you to the path that leads to the best, “For wisdom is better than jewels; and all desirable things cannot compare with her.” Proverbs 8:11. I give wisdom generously, knowledge and understanding come from the Words of My mouth. Proverbs 2:6; James 1:5.

Wisdom has built her house; she has carved its seven columns. She has prepared a great banquet, mixed the wines, and set the table. She has sent her servants to invite everyone to come. She calls out from the heights overlooking the city. “Come in with me,” she urges the simple, to those who lack good judgment, she says, “Come, eat my food, and drink the wine I have mixed. Leave your simple ways behind, and begin to live; learn to use good judgment.” Proverbs 9:1-6.

Do not ruin yourself. Do not let your flesh and soul (mind, will, and emotions) ruin your life. If you let your flesh rule your mind, that is, if you feed your mind with “flesh food” and not “Spirit food” you will ruin yourself and be unfruitful. You will not be living for My glory. You will be of no use to My Kingdom. You will never bring days of Heaven to earth for yourself or anyone else.

By “flesh food” I mean limiting your thoughts to what you detect only with your five physical senses from the circumstances around you and the things people say. And the mind set on the flesh is death because your flesh is headed towards physical death and it wants to grab all it can now before it returns to the dirt from which it came. So the “flesh” is selfish, focused only its desire and wants and becomes angry and resentful of anyone that tries to stop it from having what it want to feed its desires, addictions, lusts, and cravings. It never has enough. But a mind set on the Spirit is set on life and peace, for the spirit is eternal and is not focused on the temporal things that change and perish but the eternal things that are forever. The spirit walks in faith and unseen realities. The flesh cannot see value in these things.

But a unspiritual natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:14-16.

You have to get serious about this, many of you, even believers who love Me, have let your minds become fixated on troubling, fear-filled, hateful, oppressive, idle, fruitless, addictions, and even downright malicious thoughts. This ought not to be. It is time you took hold of the steering wheel with the Holy Spirit and learned how to reign in life THROUGH CHRIST JESUS. And He reigned His life on earth THROUGH ME.

For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17.

Now listen with attention and open your heart to grasp this. When you received Jesus you were born again, you received the forgiveness of your sins as if they had never been, and the gift of the Holy Spirit into your spirit. You are My dwelling place by My Spirit in you. You entered covenant with Jesus and He is in Covenant with Me, and thus, in Him you are in Me and I am in you.

You are now to hand over your mind to Me so I can think My thoughts in you and you can make them your own. In other words, you will use your mind to bring My Kingdom to the earth. Jesus explained:

So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. John 8:28.

And here is more detail on that:

Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. John 14:10-11.

You can think of this as making the inner business of the fruit you produce from your thoughts, words, and actions as a subsidiary of My great Kingdom, a branch office establishing My thoughts and Words on earth. That means you have submitted your mind to Me, that now it is for My use for My thoughts that promote My purposes, which are going about doing good and healing all who are oppressed by the devil. My business is saving people and bringing all to know the truth.

But there is more than the outward works, there are the works within, but you will produce My works and bear the fruit of the Spirit if you are right within. I tell you how to do it, so let us build it brick by brick.

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:1-2.

At the last supper before He died, Jesus took bread and broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Will you not say to Him about your own body now, “This is my body which is for you?” That is making covenant, each one’s life to be lived with and for the covenant partner. And now you are His body in the world, and each believer a member of it.

And just as you give Me your bodies in Christ to live purely and holy, giving your earthy dominion for My purposes, thus giving Me the authority to do My works in the world through, in, and with you, also give your soul to Me, that is, your mind, will, and emotions, to be exercised for My purposes by Me. In other words, you become My sanctuary where your thoughts and words are Mine, like Jesus told you He did as your forerunner behind the veil and the author and perfector of your faith.

“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.” John 12:49-50.

And this is not servitude, though you could classify it as that, Peter, Paul, James and John all called themselves My servants, but it is a free servant who chooses to serve for love of His Father, in other words, this frees you from the burden of your old fixations and fruitless thoughts that have taken you captive to the devil’s mindset and are tormenting you and making your life an unhappy one and allows YOU TO REIGN OVER YOUR LIFE WITH ME. The truth will set you free.

There is a reason I gave the commandment long ago to love Me with all your heart, soul, MIND, and strength and also to love your neighbor as yourself. I want to save your MIND as well as your body and spirit. For it all begins in your mind what you do with your life. And your mind is either being directed by your spirit or by your flesh.

Jesus answered, “The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31.

Do you notice I include “heart,” which is your spirit, “soul,” which is your mind, will, and emotions, and then I single out your “mind” to emphasis the importance of exercising your mind in love, and then I include “strength” which is your “will” singled out from your soul and also speaking of your body. The only part of your soul I do not emphasis is your emotions, because this kind of commitment does not depend on your feelings but on the exercise of your will in the renewing of your mind and the controlling of the thoughts of your mind to be thoughts from the spirit (heart) when you are born again.

Your life is to be for the praise of My glory. My love should be shining into you and shining out of you, pouring into you and pouring out of you, renewing you and renewing the world through you. You are to be a vessel of honor for My use for works of excellence, beauty, and glory.

If you are truly My sanctuary and a temple of the Holy Spirit this should mean that I have free reign in you to do work upon the earth and to think My thoughts in you as your thoughts.

You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and You renew the face of the earth. Psalm 104:30.

By My Word and My Spirit you are a new creation in Christ, it is time for you to renew the face of the earth with Me.

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.2 Corinthians 5:17.

Your mind and mouth should not be filled with gossip, meanness, ill will, anger, obscenity, lies, fear, irritation, depression, oppression, or any such things of the flesh, that is not being My sanctuary, that is not loving Me with all your mind and strength. That is not submitting your mind to My thoughts and forsaking your old ones. THAT IS NOT HAVING THE BEST, THAT IS SETTLING FOR LESS.

If you are willing and obey you will eat the good of the land, and not just a small portion, but everything on My table. Why settle for less merely because you would not forsake your petty, wicked thoughts for My beautiful thoughts of majesty and glory that would set you free to reign with Me? Why hold on to what is not bread when you can have ALL the magnificent promises I have freely given you in Christ Jesus your Lord as your own? It would be foolish on your part.

The wise of heart will receive commands, but a babbling fool will be ruined. Proverbs 10:8.

And how do I save a fool from destruction? I send him My Word to be his new way of thinking and speaking.

Fools, because of their rebellious way, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted. Their soul abhorred all kinds of food, and they drew near to the gates of death. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107: 17-20.

You have been saved, you who believe in My Son, do not let your thoughts and words return to your folly. Invite Me in to think for you and with you so those tormenting thoughts are gone.

I will hear what God the Lord will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; but let them not turn back to folly.  Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land. Psalm 85:8-9.

Instead renew your mind to My thoughts and be transformed from glory to glory. THINK ONLY MY THOUGHTS AND SAY ONLY MY WORDS FOR THEY ARE ETERNAL LIFE. That is what Jesus did and His life was a joyful and amazing life.

“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.” John 12:49-50.

My apostle Paul understood this and lived it. He renewed his mind and set it above and this is how he described his new way of life and I think now you will understand what he is saying: “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20.

The old foolish you is not the way you live now. Your mind is not the devil’s playground. You are My temple and My thoughts are higher. Your born again spirit must rise up and rule your mind by opening up your mind to My indwelling presence.

Why go to the flesh when you could have the spirit? Why would you go to the world’s thoughts when you can have My thoughts? Why would you settle for less when you can have it ALL? Every person from the least to the greatest can know Me and can have it all. The banquet is for everyone who will answer the invitation I have sent out to all in Christ, in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

You no longer live as that old man you were, but now Christ lives in you, your hope of glory, and makes your heart My heart, and makes your thoughts My thoughts, and makes your words My Words, and makes your works My works, and then My joy becomes your joy and your joy is full.

These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. John 15:11.

And what were the things He had spoken to them that were so full of joy? About them being branch offices of the Kingdom and producing much fruit. Yes, He told you, He is the vine, you are the branches, and I am the vine dresser, John 15:1,i.e., the owner of the enterprise, responsible for its proper running, pruning, cleaning, lifting up, teaching you to profit and the way you should go, giving you the power to gain wealth to establish My Covenant on the earth, and inspecting the fruit produces. And Jesus is your teacher and gives you grace, i.e., My divine life in you flowing in by My Spirit.

You are not only servants, you are branch managers, each of your own branch, supervising your thoughts and words to follow My instructions for your enterprise. Children, servants, managers, captains, co-pilots, earthen vessels of honor, covenant partners, kings, and priests, ruling and reigning in life through Christ and through all eternity with Me.

There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever. Revelation 22:3-5.

So what is the final word here? Stop thinking your own foolish thoughts (for the fool says in his heart there is no God and when you fear, are anxious and worried, are hopeless, cause strife, give in to addictions, fret, whine, beg, bear malice, and have bitter roots you are acting like you have no God who loves you and is your good Father who cares for  you) and make your heart My heart, make your thoughts My thoughts, makes you words My Words, make your works My works, LET ME LIVE MY LIFE IN YOU AND WITH YOU AND THROUGH YOU SO WE ARE ONE WHILE REMAINING UNIQUE. If you cannot understand this now My Spirit will unfold this to you as you can bear it. But it will give you true, pure joy that no man, no demon, and your own flesh cannot take away from you.

Let Me present to you one more simile here. Have you ever been given a website address and when you go there it has a page up saying it does not exist? Then the host sends you an email it is live now, but you keep returning using the same domain address and you keep getting the same screen saying it does not exist? Finally you ask the computer technician and he tells you that your browser has cached that blocking page and you must clear your browser cache or use a new browser to get the website. You do that and you are amazed to get the website you desired. You have to clear your cache to go on to new life in Christ, to see higher, to put your thoughts above where Christ is seated at My right hand. And I have seated you there too in Him. Your browser, that is your mind, has cached that old fixation on the bad and won’t let you view the new until you clear the cache or get a new browser.

And how did Jesus tell the disciples He had cleared their caches and renewed their browsers so that they could attach to His supply from Me, be branch offices, and produce much fruit? By My Word. Eat My Word, drink My Word, wash in My Word, and clear away your old fixations and so you can think like Me.

You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:3-5.

Do you still not understand what I am offering you? I am offering you My thoughts, My Words, and My works. I am offering you My life lived in you and with you and through you. I am offering to come in and take the helm of your life, if you will allow and authorize Me to do so, and clean up, fix, adjust, and make profitable everything within you so you can have and enjoy your life. I am offering to think My thoughts in you so you can be freed of all the tormenting thoughts that have held you back so long. I am offering to take over your mind to bless and protect you from all that would harm your spirit, soul, and body if you will allow it. Let Me complete what I have begun in you. I am not taking away your identity from you, I am giving it back to you so you can reign in life with Me.

You could liken it to when you are online with a computer technician and you allow him to remotely enter your computer from the back end and as you watch the cursor, now taken over by the technician you cannot see, checking into all the parts of your computer that you have no idea how to access on your own, whizzing around clearing the hindrances, viruses, trash, clearing the cache, and fixing any other malfunctions that are causing your computer not to function at its maximum potential. You have allowed him to take control of your computer so that it works for you and not against you. But at any time you choose to end the session and bar his access you can. Do you see? He is working for you not against you. It is in your best interests to allow him in and let him take over till all is complete.

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6.

So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13-14.

I love you. It is time you gave up the less for the best. WHY SETTLE FOR LESS WHEN YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL? Come to the feast, it is all prepared, all you have to do is put on the new man (clothe yourself in Christ) and come eat and eat and eat and eat and eat until you are transformed and the old man is no more. Metamorphosis. Blessed is the servant (branch manager) who is busy about My business when I return. Selah.

Seek the LORD while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me void without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.  Isaiah 55:6-11.
