For the love of Christ impels us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15.

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

You are living in two realms on the earth—the physical and the spiritual. When you pass from this life to the Kingdom it will only be one realm, the spiritual. It is then there will be no pull to sin, you will be made perfect.

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.

But you can live days of Heaven on earth, you can begin to walk in the beauty of the spirit realm now, for I have given you My Word, My Son, and the Anointing. With these three your spirit can rule your flesh even now by abiding in and living through the three. This will give rest to your soul as your spirit rules above and constrains the flesh. Your soul is made up of your mind, your will, and your emotions.

The flesh gives no peace to your soul, it puts fear of lack or of failure in your mind by focusing your attention only on your flesh, brings people’s faults to your attention to feed its pride, causes addictions in its lust for things that enliven it, provokes you to anger, causes you to covet what others have in greed for self to be all, and puts jealousy and malice in your mind towards those that seem to be better off than your flesh. The flesh is hostile to Me and My commands, for it does not operate in true love and it does not comprehend spiritual realities, to the flesh these are foolish. And the worldly minded are living under the rule of their flesh and they call this freedom to be who they are.

But the flesh does not define you. The spirit in you does. You are a spirit, in My image, with a soul that is your operating system, clothed in a body, which enables you to live upon the earth. Your spirit and soul are forever, but your earthly body is not. It is to serve you in this life as your vehicle for service but not to rule you. It should be the slave and not your master.

You will receive a new body of heavenly substance on the Last Day when I raise you up. But for now I have raised you in your spirit and seated you with Christ at My right hand, but you are still living physically upon the earth. And you are there to do a work, a life of good deeds, and for that you need your body. So for now you are earthly and heavenly, but soon you will be entirely heavenly.

The flesh and the spirit strive but in Christ Jesus the spirit wins. Love has to be the driving force of your life, for love never goes lower. Love has to be in the driver’s seat. Love has to be the master. And it is the love of Christ that impels and constrains you.

For the love of Christ impels us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15.

Today I would like to show you how to live under the anointing and reprogram your operating system (soul) so that you are no longer tormented by the flesh, that is, by an uncontrolled mind that leads you according to the flesh and not according to the Spirit, for an uncontrolled mind, fed by input from the flesh, will ruin your life and make your days full of torment.

Many of you want to control the thoughts of your mind but you find it impossible to stop thinking about those around you that you serve who are living like the devil. How do you keep your thoughts off them?

If you want the devil to flee from you, what do I tell you to do? Submit to Me and resist him. How do you submit to someone? You agree with them, you get under their authority purposefully because you like what they do and want it in your life too. You offer them service willingly. It is not surrender, that is forced on someone who does not have the power to overcome the enemy and has unpleasant overtones. It is the breeding ground for rebellion and insurrection. It means you give up what you want for another who has more power to hold you down to do their will. That is not what I want. I want agreement in your heart with Me for love of who I am and who I made you to be. I want you to come to Me to serve Me to gain all not to lose all. In blessing I bless you, in multiplying I multiply you. I blessed you from the beginning to be fruitful, to bear much fruit in your life, good fruit that endures. You know well that a day where you don’t accomplish anything is a frustrating day for you. To come to Me is increase. It is eternal life.

So how do you submit and resist the evil thoughts and tactics of the enemy to take you captive to do his will?

Let us go back to joyful Mary, the mother of My Son, who declared that all generations would call her blessed, call her happy, because I had done great things for her. The key to the answer is in her response:

And Mary said, “Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” Luke 1:38.

This mirrors what My Holy Spirit breathed through Paul for your edification:

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.

You put your body (flesh) under as your slave to righteousness and you put your mind in submission to My Word by renewing it so that you are transformed to be more than a conqueror. How do you keep your flesh under so it no longer rises up to push you around and order your thoughts and operating system? You must make it a slave of your spirit. And on your own you cannot do this, so you present your body to Me to serve righteousness and thus release your spirit into control over your mind by renewing it in My Word. For the victory that overcomes the world is your faith.

Faith in what? In My love for you as expressed in My Word which is filled with magnificent promises of success, prosperity, healing, and victory by following it. And that faith in Me and delight to submit to My ways allows Me to help you, as it did Mary, to submit your flesh, your body, the physical realm of what you do with your body, under My control by the anointing in you because you know and believe in the love I have for you as manifested in giving you Jesus so you can live your life through Him.

Jesus came not to be served but to serve. To serve Me and to serve you, and you must be of the same mind to be free and overcome as He did. He took the form of a slave and was obedient to all I showed Him to say or do. Satan had no place in Him, he could find no entrance. And the answer was in His submission to Me and His total allegiance to My Words for He knew that they contained eternal life in them. But before going deeper into how He did this let us first consider the teaching of the bondslave.

If you present yourself to someone as a slave, you must obey them, there is no choice for you made the choice when you presented yourself as such. This was the concept of the bondslave that I presented to Moses. If a Hebrew became a slave of another Hebrew, his master had to release him after six years of service, but if that slave loved his master and wanted to continue being of service to him, even though the master had to release him after six years or if a kinsman redeemed him before, the slave could decide he did not want to leave the master but presented himself to the master to continue to serve him as his bondslave for the rest of his life.

But if the slave plainly says, “I love my master, my wife and my children; I will not go out as a free man,” then his master shall bring him to God, then he shall bring him to the door or the doorpost. And his master shall pierce (ratsa: to bore, pierce (רָצַע) his ear with an awl (martsea: a boring instrument, awl (מַרְצֵעַ) from ratsa); and he shall serve him permanently. Exodus 21:5-6.

Do you recall what Jesus said when coming into the world as one like you?

Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired; My ears You have pierced (karah (כָּרָה): bore or dig); burnt offering and sin offering You have not required. Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of Me. I delight to do Your will, O My God; Your Law is within My heart.” Psalm 40:6-8.

Now read My revelation to My bondslave Paul who kept his body under so that having preached to others he would not lose his reward by serving the desires of the flesh:

Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification. Romans 6:16-19.

And there is more to consider here in such submission:

For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:20-23.

The benefits of offering your bodies and lips as instruments of righteousness are wonderful, for the Master must see to the complete support and wellbeing of his slave if he wants maximum fruitfulness. I forgive all your sins, I heal all your ills, I redeem you out of the pit, I surround you with love and compassion, I fill your days with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. A bondslave is loved and cherished as more than a slave but a son.

“They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. Malachi 3:17-18.

Now let Me give you the crowning confirmation of this is the way to be set free from fear, torment, sin, and malice of every kind, for you conquer evil with good. Look at what Jesus did to live so perfect a life with His mind free and clear with no darkness or torment in it though He encountered such opposition and betrayal in those who should have loved and honored Him. He did the same that you hear in the words of Mary and Paul, for My Spirit had hovered over and descended upon them as well:

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-slave, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-11.

You are no longer your own, you have been bought at a great price, at the price of My Son and every drop of His blood, so glorify Me in your body. Offer it to Me in service to Me and I will keep you from evil. When you put yourself into My hands, there is no snatching you out of them. Offer your body to Me as an instrument for righteousness.

Now once you have done this, remember you are no longer your to think or do anything that does not match up with My Word or you have just abandoned your commitment as a bondslave, but how do you do this?

You rule by your words. I told you to have faith in My promises and then to speak to the mountain that is challenging you and stopping you going forward in this resolve. When you mind starts going back to your old habits you speak to those thoughts and cast them down. But what do you speak? For when you cast down a thought you have to replace it with something better or it will just keep presenting itself. So you must do just what I told Joshua. You meditate upon and speak My Word throughout your day and night, you do not permit your mind to be idle. And now I will tell you the best way to do that. You sing My Word in your heart constantly and speak in tongues. This edifies you and keeps your mind busy and fruitful. You make songs in your heart of My Words.

Deliver me according to Your Word. Let my lips utter praise, for You teach me Your statutes. Let my tongue sing of Your word, for all Your commandments are righteousness. Let Your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen Your precepts. Psalm 119:170-173.

Once you make the commitment, I can help you fulfill it. If you are willing and obey, I can do the rest, I can do a mighty work in you, with you, and through you.

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of and redeeming your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking within yourselves and to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father. Ephesians 5:15-20.

And there it is verified again, you are to speaking within yourselves and to on another in psalms and hymns and songs in the Spirit, singing and making melody at all times in your heart to Me and constantly giving thanks in the Name of Jesus the Messiah, the anointed One and His anointing which is on and in you. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. Romans 13:14.

When Christ died, you died with Him by substitution and identification, and when I raised Him from the dead, I raised you with Him. Keep your mind above where you are seated with Him in heavenly places and join with Him in His mission to serve. Imitate Him and become a cherished bondslave of Mine and I will prosper you. My Will prospered in His hands. The glory you give to Me is reflected back on you as well in Christ.

Sing. My Words are your songs in the house of your pilgrimage and they will protect your mind.

Your statutes are my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. Psalm 119:54.

I am your hiding place and what is it that keeps you so the evil one cannot touch you? I surround you with songs of deliverance! They are your blessing wall.

You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalm 32:7.

David knew that. He composed songs and sang them out of the darkness of hiding as a refugee in caves to ruling all of Judah and Israel from his palace, and he instituted songs being song to Me of My Word all night and all day every day of the year with 288 singers and musicians rotating the hours before Me. You can sing in your heart constantly. Have you ever listened to a toddler playing? They sing songs that they make up as they go along. Become as little children. For out of the mouths of infants and babes I have perfected praise to stop and still the enemy.

Sing. Remember when they wanted a well in a dry place in the desert? I told them to sing to it and up it bubbled.

From there they continued to Beer, that is the well where the LORD said to Moses, “Assemble the people, that I may give them water.” Then Israel sang this song: “Spring up, O well! Sing to it! The well, which the leaders sank, which the nobles of the people dug, with the scepter and with their staffs.” Numbers 21:16-18.

The same is true in the spirit. Tongues will bring up your wellspring and release rivers from within you. Pray and sing in tongues and your mind will never wander off into the dark dry places.

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God. Jude 1:20-21.

For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries . . . One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself . . . I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also. 1 Corinthians 14:2,4,15.

Keep yourself out of the dry places.

“Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest.” Matthew 12:43.

Do not be like the barren bush in the desert that sees no good, be like the tree that puts its roots deep down in the continuous flow of the underground river that is flowing into and overflowing out of you from My throne, the living water of the river of life. My Spirit. On the Highway of Holiness where the devil cannot walk, they are singing.

But the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful singing to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will overtake gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 35:9-10.

And where is that Highway? Not in a dry place.

For waters will break forth in the wilderness and streams in the Arabah. The scorched land will become a pool and the thirsty ground springs of water. And the thirsty ground springs of water; in the haunt of jackals, its resting place, grass becomes reeds and rushes. A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. Isaiah 35:6-8.

I love you. And now I will tell you a secret that not everyone knows, when you decide to become My servant I become your servant too. You can do nothing without Me but everything with Me. It is actually I who serve you and that is My delight. It has pleased Me to give you who have decided to serve Me the Kingdom. I supply the power, the resources according to My riches in Christ Jesus in glory, the skill, the plans, and the direction, you just have to show up and run with the vision. Seek My Kingdom first and all will be added to you, including self-control. It is in the fruit of the Spirit which the anointing produces within your spirit.

Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them. Luke 12:37.
