How Do I Get Rid of Negative Voices/Thoughts (intrusions) In My Head (mind/thinking)?
Henry Wright has an audio
tape/CD called Separation. -
One may also want to listen to the archived
January 2004 radio interview between Wright and Sid Roth
to help explain: that a lot of
our thoughts are not ours, nor necessarily God's, nor even voices of our parents
that sometimes run through our minds like tape recorders, records, etc. We
often entertain unwanted thoughts that do not align with scripture, because we assume that they are ours.
Once we recognize that a lot of thoughts in our minds are NOT ours, then we can give
ourselves permission to reject these thoughts and refuse to dwell on them.
Now this takes a lot of insight, practice, self discipline and time, but the
rewards are wonderful. It takes time to develop the wisdom, skills and
muscle to reject unwanted thoughts. We can not go it alone.
It takes Father God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ the Son. It takes a buddy system and better still, a family and a village. God works in the flesh of humans, so a pastor or individual with a big heart can be our helpmate.
Even Moses needed Aaron to do God's work. God understands. That is why He put Him*self into the flesh of Jesus.

Henry Wright contends that the 1st day that we receive
Jesus Christ as our Lord and forgiver of sins is the 1st day that we need to
learn to defend ourselves from Satan. Jesus was tempted of Satan 40 days
in the desert, right after He was baptized.
We need to be aware that Satan plays back our past in our minds. He keeps a record of wrongs that we have done. Our self accusations (negative self-talk) are often really Satan's accusations. In addition, Satan gives us flashbacks, terrorist voices in our heads, visions in our minds, or night-mares, especially of the past offenses that others have committed against us or may do in the near future. Satan plays games with our heads. One reason is because we do not tune him out, turn him off, or change the subject. Scripture says to test the spirits. That includes testing our thoughts. The enemy tries to separate us from God and others by giving us derogatory thoughts. It our job to recognize the enemy, and then to practice ignoring or rejecting him. This is what eventually happened in the life of Nobel laureate John Nash portrayed in A Beautiful Mind, book by Sylvia Nasar and movie. He still hears voices, but he knows not to heed them. The key issue is insight. It takes a lot of time and God's mercy to recognize the voice of the enemy. One key is this. The heart of God is always to bless. The heart of Satan is to curse. If we are at peace, it is a clue that the thought is of heaven. If we are terrorized, it is a clue that the thought is of hell. Satan lied to Eve and tricked her into eating God's forbidden fruit, which poisoned both her spirit and body. If we too fail to recognize and resist Satin's lies, then we will be harmed. Nursing old hurts, victimization, and wounds will poison our mind and body. Father God, in Your Son Jesus' name, we invite You and Your holy helpers to help us, beginning now. Thanks in advance. Amen.
The voices (thoughts in our mind, head, heart) or emotions often are from the enemy Satan, who wishes to destroy us and our family. If they are from the enemy, then both the enemy and the thoughts need to be bound, sent away and forbidden to return (IN THE NAME OF JESUS).
Joyce Meyer www.joycemeyer.org warns us to do this immediately, intrusion by intrusion and day by day. Joyce tells us to be in agreement with the word of God and out of agreement with all thoughts that disagree with scripture. She reminds us that Hebrews chapter 10 states that if we have repented of any trespass, then Jesus has forgiven. We do not need to continue to wash our hands continually of sin in an obsessive compulsive way that Satin would want us to do. Instead we can fight back. attack by attack, day by day. We can say out loud in the privacy of the bathroom, "Devil, get lost.
Jesus died for my sins. I am not guilty. I asked for forgiveness. My past is under the blood of Jesus.
I shake off your condemnation. I refuse your condemnation. I am no longer guilty.
I am no longer ashamed. The blood of Jesus cleanses my conscience. I shake off your negative FEELINGS.
I do not need to FEEL condemned. IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I pray and will continue to pray each time your negative voice comes to accuse me, for I recognize you. You are not the voice of God. You are a lie. God says I am forgiven.
God says I am loved by Him and precious to Him." Thoughts/voices of the enemy will be loud, interfering and consistent until we turn them down. The thoughts/voices will lessen in intensity and frequency as we recognize that we are tuned into the wrong station and tune them out by aggressively repeating out loud scripture that contradicts the lies,
always relying on Jesus and His truth and NOT our feelings.
Satan our enemy repeats, like a broken record condemnations, to attempt to make us feel guilty.
Once we recognize what his game plan is, then we do not so readily fall into his trap.
Thoughts or voices in our mind are like radio/TV waves which we can tune in or tune out/turn off, because we always have choice/a free will. Negative, oppressing, distressing thoughts we can recognize, refuse, reject, resist in the name of Jesus Christ. Additionally, we can deliberately replace them with positive thoughts, music, scripture, words.
We can reprogram our own minds. The Holy Spirit will help when we ask Him.
reminds us that we must not depend on our changing emotions, but must always
depend only on the word of God. If our feelings or thoughts disagree with
the word of God, then we can know right away that we need to quote scripture to
our self and to the enemy and regain our peace. In the book Mastering
the Silence, Strategies for winning the battles of the mind Doug
notes that of all his inner voices, none have have voices that sound different
than that which speaks silently to his mind. All his inner voices whether
from God, self, or Satan have had the same sound, silence. If or when
voices all sound alike in the head, then we need to recognize the source of each
thought, idea and suggestion. We also need to consider in advance the
consequence of obeying each thought, idea or suggestion.
We need to identify any thought, idea or suggestion that is not in accordance with scripture, and then reject it.
Then we need to change the subject. If the voice persists in our head, then we need to quote scripture refuting that thought, idea or suggestion. The same approach would apply to any negative or harmful emotion, such as fear, insecurity, anxiety, depression, shame, etc. Obviously, we need to repent if sin is the cause of any problem.
Then we can safely and successfully wage war against any enemy that is trying to destroy our mental health.
Kathryn Kuhlman reminds us that if we
call the Holy Spirit "It", we do NOT know Him,
for He is the 3rd Person of the Trinity. Likewise, if we consider evil negative thoughts to be an "it" or "them", then likewise we may fail to recognize that we are dealing with a personality with mind and emotions, separate from ourselves.
Neither are evil spirits media floating on the airwaves, radio waves, TV waves, etc. They are persons in their own right, who attempt to disguise themselves as "our own personality". They will lie, deceive, trick or do anything to accomplish their own treachery. They are not nice "things" with bad characteristics, subject to redemption. They tortured/crucified Christ with malice, and in every generation will try to do the same to (exterminate/harm/mess with) those who align themselves with Christ.
In war, it is important to know who your real enemy is. Exorcism will do the job, when most clergy and most doctors fail to cure the patient. DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES Each individual has it's own individual personality, human soul, unique to itself, like a snowflake; it may need maturing and healing, but nonetheless, it is ours and special to God.

www.mhmin.org in a 9/10/2006 TV USA east coast
broadcast shares the testimony of a man harassed many many years by badgering
voices compelling/demanding him to do evil. Driving in his car, another
voice commanded him to stop. He obeyed and went into an unmarked building
and sat in the rear of the audience. A layperson was asking those who had
hearing problems to come up front for prayer, or something of that sort.
Anyway, he came up for prayer. This is his testimony. He had heard
many years and now the voices were gone.
His hearing problem was not with his ears, -
but rather with his brain. His problems/ voices were real, but not discernable/audible to the medical community. That is because spirits speak to spirits. The Holy Spirit speaks to the human spirit, as does an evil spirit speak to the human spirit. Rarely does God speak in an audible/physical voice. Regardless, God did intervene in this man's life.
Thank You, Father God, in the name of Your son Jesus Christ.
Bonnke, Reinhard - http://livingalifeoffire.com/exc.pdf autobiography book preview
Reinhard Bonnke in his book Evangelism by Fire www.cfan.org reminds Christians that we do not learn God's lessons with the head only, that our (human) IQ has nothing to do with our spirituality. We are a trinity: mind, body plus spirit. We experience life through our 5 senses (body), our thinking (mind or soul) and our spirit. It is our spirit which never dies, has eternal life, and goes to God when the body dies. It is God's Holy Spirit which joins with our spirit, in the same way that a sperm unites with an egg. A new birth is created. The seen birth is physical. The invisible birth is spiritual. When the spiritual union between God and man occurs inside each physical life, then we become alive to God.
We wake up to His existence. We can now begin to tune our radio or TV station of our lives to His station. Our spiritual clock has begun to tick. We are now tuned in to God's wave length. Now at long last we can begin to recognize His voice as He says, "I love you. My voice will now begin to lead you into freedom, away from the enemy's voice or the voice in your head that gets you into trouble." God's spirit joining our human spirit is the key to eternal life, but the master key is the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
God is talking to us all the time, but most of us are tuned
into the "wrong radio/TV" station; we are on the wrong wave length. Satan
is talking to us all the time, too.
Often Satan presents his ideas to us
in a manner that we think his thoughts are our own. Satan is the master of
We need to RECOGNIZE not only our own voice, but also God's voice, and Satan's voice. That is, we need to recognize that every thought needs to be analyzed or filtered through the word of God. Scripture says to capture each thought, vision, dream, apparition, voice. We capture, analyze, and reject anything contrary to scripture and God's loving, merciful, sweet, tender character. Terrors are worst at night when our mind is more available to the spirit world. When we go to bed we can cover ourselves with a blanket of Christ's blood. It is invisible to us but not to the spirit world. We can put a spiritual hedge around our property. We can ask God to put angels on guard in our bedroom. If there is a biochemical medical reason for our perceptions that are not contributing to our wellbeing, then we need to ask God to fix that...
We can say, "In the name of Jesus, I bind all causes of this disorder and place them under the feet of Jesus.
In the name of Jesus, I release healing into my brain. In the name of Jesus, I command a creative miracle to occur in my brain, for any medical situation that requires a new or replacement part. Lord God, I thank You.
I expect Your healing, if not speedily, then ever so progressively, till at last I am perfect.
Most of all Lord, teach me to appreciate and love You more and more each day. Amen"...
Tuning in to God's channel/radio station/TV station is not an on/off toggle button, a yes/no. It is a lifestyle, a building up day by day spiritual muscle. Being able to lift 5 pounds, then 10 pounds, then 15 pounds. It is consistency. As His employee God has trained and tested us. He knows our strengths and weaknesses. Where we need mentoring/tutoring. Where we need exercise for flabby muscles or weak backs. Where we need obedience. Where we need personal deliverance. Where we need generational deliverance. If we were like Job in the middle of the ocean, it would not do much good for God to save us if we do not know how to swim. We need to learn to swim and then maybe we will be ready for God to rescue us from our ocean of troubles that attempt to drown us. A life jacket and maybe a raft or boat would also help! Father God, make us ready for Your rescue. Provide all the life support that we need. Thanks Papa. In Jesus name. Amen...
Because Satan is the inventor of lies, we need to RECOGNIZE some of his lies.
A woman out of wedlock is listening to a lie when she thinks, "It is too late, because I am pregnant."
A prisoner is listening to a lie when he thinks, "It is too late."
An elderly person is listening to a lie when he thinks, "It is too late, to do anything with my life for God."
A mentally ill person is listening to a lie when he thinks, "I blew it. I am too old. I am too ill.
I will always be sick. I will never be normal. It is too late."
A depressed person is listening to a lie when he thinks, "I wish I had never been born.
It was a mistake for me to have been born. I am a failure, a mistake. I want to die."
Notice that alot of lies from the enemy, begin with "I".
We mistake such thoughts to be our own. The biggest mistake is to accept them and not reject them.
Now is the beginning of our wellness. All thoughts which contradict the intentions of God for your life is a lie. God is the potter. We are the clay. The clay does not contradict the potter, but he should contradict Satan's intentions for us.
Satan wants us to throw away our lives by living in the past or quitting and giving up. God made us. He has plans for us. Life is a court room. As long as we believe the damming evidence, we will be a victim. When we go to confession, God forgives us. It is Satin who condemns falsely, because our forgiven sins are forgotten by God. Our forgiven sins are covered over with the blood of Jesus. If we accuse ourselves, then we are a liar, agreeing with Satan. We must repent of this unbelief. Either Jesus died for our sins, or He did not. When we believe what God says in scripture, then we will begin to become victors. The spiritual battles are in the mind where the evil spirit wars with the Holy Spirit. Resist the devil and he will flee.
June Newman Davis in Scripture Keys for Kingdom Living
when an evil spirit speaks we have:
1. doubt, fear, discomfort
2. conflict, lack of peace, restlessness, secrecy
3. questions, uncertainty
4. contradiction/invalidation of God's/Jesus' words in scripture
5. denial of Jesus Christ's deity
6. condemnation, guilt, discouragement
7. continual reminder of past sins already forgiven/forgotten by God
8. apparitions/dreams/visions/out-of-body-experiences that are disturbing/harmful/stressful.
June Newman Davis also notes that when our own human nature speaks we have:
1. intellectual hesitation
2. deception due to not knowing the heart of God/Jesus (not having read/understood scripture)
3. double-mindedness (wanting to do 2 opposite things)
4. deception due to desire (for alcohol, drugs, immoral sex, emotional turmoil such as anger, etc)

Often the enemy has created a chemical disorder in the brain through an inherited genetic occurrence.
Regardless of the curse being the fault of an ancestor or our own sin, we need to do what some call a family tree.
Write down all our ancestors' diseases and sins, plus our own. Take that list to the altar or to communion.
Ask God to both forgive us and our ancestors, having first forgiven ALL others who have wounded or trespassed against us.
What that means is that those who have injured us do not need to say, "I am sorry." God has to deal with them, not us.
However, we do not give a violator permission to continue to abuse us. We always need to protect ourselves and our family from abuse, when we can. We place the sins and diseases under the blood of Christ. Those sins and diseases erased our sins and diseases 2000 years ago, but we did not avail ourselves of this forgiveness and healing until now. Now is the day of victory. Now is the day of wellness. Now is the day to lay claim to what Christ did for us on the cross and in the resurrection. Satan will continue to tell us lies, but do not listen to Him. We will get better and better and better each moment, each hour, each day as we lay claim to what Christ did for us. Do not faint. Satin has to be convinced that what we say we mean, for he does not want to let go his foothold in our lives. How many generations has this paranoia been in our family? Of course, it may take a few battles and time to reverse the curse...
In the 16th chapter of Matthew in the Bible, there is a disagreement between Jesus and Peter.
"Jesus began to explain to His disciples that He must...suffer many things...Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 'Never, Lord...This shall never happen to You.' Jesus turned and said to Peter, 'Get behind Me Satan!. You are a stumbling block to Me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.'"
What is going on here? Obviously, we now realize that those thoughts of Peter are from the enemy of God and from human nature. This illustrates that Satan will always try to mess up our minds and to make trouble, especially if we are in God's family, if we are God's friends, if we love Jesus, as did the disciples. However, it is Christ who has the power to defeat the enemy, not the other way around...
Sometimes the things we believe are dead wrong, even though our intentions are wonderful. For instance an amateur but dedicated vegetarian may be missing his/her B vitamins and come down with a disease related to that deficiency. A person may be hallucinating, but think he is not. A person may believe either (1) He is Christ or (2) another prophet is Christ or (3) that Christ is yet, if ever/never, to come. If that person dies and encounters Christ on his way to hell, it may be too late to change one's mind. If a person does not believe in hell, but after death lands there, ouch. You see, there are 3 realities: soul/mental/intellectual, bodily, and spiritual. Each is real, even if one does not believe...
Be sure you have asked Jesus to be your savior. That gives Him a foothold into your DNA. Be sure you have asked God to baptize you in His Holy Spirit. That gives Him the ability to build spiritual muscle in your life to resist the enemy.
Blessings. God loves you...
How do I walk out my wellness on a daily basis? The evil spirit, the devil, sneaks in the back door and contradicts whatever scripture says. Not only that, he does it by deceit, giving us thoughts which are his and tricking us into thinking they are ours. When we hear in our head thoughts that disagree with scripture, we must respond immediately with scripture.
For example. When Satin says in our mind, He's not so bad", meaning the devil, or "I am not saved.
I am not good enough. I am not worthy." We are to immediately think back or say aloud God's words:
God's Thoughts/Mind/Word per scripture:
"None of his sins that he committed shall be mentioned to Him." Ezekiel 33:16
"He will subdue our iniquities. Thou will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea." Mica 7:19
"Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." Matthew 8:17
"There is no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed." John 8:36
"Their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." Hebrews 10:17
"The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2nd Corinthians 10:4-5
"Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusts Thee." Isaiah 26:3
"There has no temptation given you but such as is common to man. God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able. With the temptation He will make a way to escape." 1st Corinthians 10:13
ALWAYS remember, regardless of the revelation by any spirit,
if the information disagrees with scripture or with the heart of God, then
IMMEDIATELY reject it and do NOT follow its instructions. One test
used by Smith Wigglesworth is to ask the spirit if Jesus came in the flesh.
If the answer is no, then it is the wrong spirit. Scripture says that God
is making the end times short, lest the elite of God be deceived. We see
this deception already. People are relying on experience only, rather than
testing thoughts, dreams, visions and even healings. Moses' contemporaries
could do the same magic that he did. Pastors and others who have healing
powers, are not always of God. Be forewarned. Neither be so
mesmerized with other's powers and insights that you feel jealous, inadequate
and inferior. There is much danger here for those who are desperate enough
to try anything...
Often people accept things based on preexisting belief systems. A typical example is a Catholic believing in any apparition, regardless of source. Regardless of perception or belief, we need to daily, weekly, continually, test EVERY revelation against scripture...
The problem increases if all those around us - agree, interpret a prophecy as from God, hail a fellow saint as perfect, whatever - without allowing - for common sense, spiritual insight, the Holy Spirit to warn us, or spiritual muscle (perhaps out of fear), and allowing another to control us like a dictator, husband, cult leader, pastor, parent, or boss. It is imperative to read or listen to scripture ALOT, so that when danger comes sneaking in the back door, we will recognize it. Remember Eve, and even Adam, did NOT recognize danger, and they were perfect at that time. Pray for daily protection, as shown to us by Jesus in the Lord's prayer, "Deliver us from evil"...
Wigglesworth, Smith - Cry of the (Holy) Spirit - unpublished sermons by Roberts Liardon - chapter 4 How to Understand Voices - (Refer the scripture 1st John 4:1-9.) "The Devil NEVER knows our thoughts; and if you won't let your thoughts out in public, you will be safe," according to Wigglesworth (1924).

Vita Adae et Evae or
The Slavonic Adam and Eve 39:1 -
Said Seth to the beast (devil), "God the Lord revile you.
Be silent, be dumb, shut your mouth, accursed enemy of Truth, confounder and destroyer."
The Apocalypse of Moses 16:1-5 The devil spoke to the serpent saying, "Rise up, come to me and I will tell you a word whereby you may have profit." He arose and came to him. The devil said to him, "I hear you are wiser than all beasts and I have come to counsel you. Why do you eat of Adam's tares and not of paradise? Rise up and we will cause him to be cast out of paradise, even as we were cast out through (because of) him." The serpent said to him, "I fear lest the Lord will be angry with me." The devil said to him, "Fear not, only be my vessel and I will speak through your mouth word to deceive him." (The devil and other fallen angels refused to worship man, made in the image of God, and thus were evicted from heaven onto earth.)
Old Testament Scripture
Exodus 33:11 KJV - The Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.
1st Samuel 3:9 - The Lord came, stood, and
called as at other times, "Samuel, Samuel."
Then Samuel answered, "Speak (God), for your servant hears." (God spoke to the child Samuel.)
Joshua 24:27 KJV - Joshua said to all the people, "Behold, this stone shall be a witness to us; for it has heard all the words of the Lord which He spoke to us. It shall be therefore a witness to you, lest you deny your God. (The Old Testament allows an inanimate object to hear.)
Job 1:6-12 NIV - 6One day the angels came to
present themselves before the Lord and Satan also came with them. 7The
Lord said to Satan, "Where have you come from?"
the Lord, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."
8Then the Lord said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job?
There is no one on earth like him. He is blameless and upright, a man who
fears God and shuns evil." 9Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan
replied. 10"Have You not put a hedge around him, his house-hold, and
everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that
flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. 11Stretch out Your hand
and (allow me to) strike everything he has. He will
surely curse You to Your face."
12The Lord said to Satan, "Very
well, then. Everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do
not lay a finger." Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.
Job 2:1-7 NIV- Another day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord. Satan also came with them to present himself before him. 2The Lord said to Satan, "Where do you come from?" Satan answered the Lord, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it." 3Then the Lord said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him. He is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. He still maintains his integrity though you incited Me against him to ruin him without any reason." 4Skin for skin!" Satan replied. "A man will give all he has for his own life. 5Stretch out Your hand and (allow me to) strike his flesh and bones. He will surely curse You to Your face." 6The Lord said to Satan, "Very well, then. He is in your hands, but you must spare his life." 7Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the top of his head.
Job 33:14-15 KJV - God speaks once, yea twice, yet man (medical profession) perceives it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumberings upon the bed.
Job 42:10 KJV - The Lord turned (back/reversed) the captivity (curses/hardships/sufferings) of Job, when he (Job) prayed for his friends (misguided counselors). The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
Job 42:16 KJV - After this Job lived 140 years and saw his sons and sons' sons, even (to the) 4(th) generations. Job died, being old and full of days.
PSALM 71:1 (KJV) - In You, O Lord, do I put my trust. Let me never be put to confusion.
ISAIAH 5:13 - My people will go into exile
(be captured by the enemy) for lack of understanding
(of scripture that tells us Jesus immediately erases our sins, once we
ask Him for forgiveness). (Spiritual insight = We
do not need to keep going over and over in our minds our failures/shortcomings.
We do not need to keep beating up ourselves.
In the football game of life we can take the offensive instead of the defensive approach.)
ISAIAH 50:7 - The Lord God will help me; therefore I shall not be confounded; therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

New Testament Scripture
MATTHEW 9:4 NIV - Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?"
MATTHEW 13:4-9 CJB (Spiritual insights in
parenthesis.) 4.A farmer (the Lord) went out to sow his (His) seed. 4As he
sowed, some seed (manna/written or spoken Word of God) fell alongside the path
(our ears/hearing/mind/awareness/ understanding); and the birds (of prey/demons)
came and ate it up. 5.Other seed fell on rocky patches where the was not
much soil (receptivity/character). It sprouted quickly (in our hearts),
because the soil (spiritual foundation/muscle) was shallow (heart lacking
prayer, praise, thanksgiving, worship, knowledge of the Trinity, knowledge of
holy scripture); 6but when the sun had risen, the young (immature/ naive/tender)
plants were scorched; and since their roots
were not deep, they dried up
(withered/wilted/ quit); 7Other seed fell among thorns
(cares/worries/responsibilities/evil doctrines/ governments/families), which
grew up and choked the plants. 8But others fell into rich soil and
produced grain, a 100 or 60 or 30 times as much as had been sown. 9Those
who have ears, let them hear.
MATTHEW 13:24-40 CJB 24Yeshua put before them another parable. "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man (the Lord/Holy Spirit/God/Messiah) who sowed good (healthy/holy) seed (THOUGHTS/ideas/beliefs/ ministries) in his field;
25but while people were sleeping (NOT refusing/rejecting/renouncing/refuting, not on guard/not protected by the blood of Jesus/locked up in evil places such as prisons/mental institutions), his enemy came and sowed (evil) weed (discord/deception/deceit/ lies/false doctrine/THOUGHTS/NIGHTMARES/hauntings/fears/terrors) among the wheat (church/ synagogue/born-again believers in Yeshua), then went away.
26When the wheat sprouted and formed head of grain, the weeds also appeared (became apparent/exposed/revealed).
27The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir didn't you sow good seed in your field?' Where have the weeds (tricksters/false leaders/doctrines, demons/cheer leaders/followers of doctrines that contradict holy scripture and the true sweet nature of God) come from?' 28He answered, 'An (evil human or spiritual) enemy has done this.'
The servants asked him, 'Then do you want us to go and pull them up?'
29But he said, 'No, because if you pull up the weeds, you might uproot some of the wheat at the same time.
30Let them both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers to collect the weeds first and tie (BIND) them in bundles to be burned, but to gather the wheat into my barn.'
MARK 1:23-26 KJV - There was in their (Capernaum) synagogue a man with an unclean spirit.
He cried out, "Let us alone. What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth?
Are You come to destroy us? I know who You are. The Holy One of God.
Jesus rebuked him saying, "Hold your peace (tongue/speech/ be silent) and come out of him."
The unclean spirit tore him, cried with a loud voice, and came out of him.
MARK 5:2-13 KJV - When he came out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs. No man could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with fetters and chains and the chains had been plucked asunder by him. The fetters had been broken in pieces.
No man could tame him. Night and day he was in the mountains and in the tombs crying and cutting himself with stones. When he saw Jesus far off, he ran and worshiped Him. Crying with a loud voice he said, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, son of the Most High God? I adjure You by God, torment me not." He (Jesus) said, "Come out of the man,
you unclean spirit." He (Jesus) asked him, "What is your name?" He answered, "My name is Legion, for we are many." They sought Him much that He would not send them away out of the country. There was near the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. All the devils besought Him, "Send us into the swing, that we may enter into them." Jesus gave them leave. The unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine. The herd (about 2,000) ran violently down a steep place into the sea and were choked (drown) in the sea.
LUKE 8:26-33 KJV - They arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee. When He went to land, there met Him out of the city a certain man, who had devils a long time, wore no clothes, and lived in no house (but in tombs). When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before Him with a loud voice, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, You son of God most high? I beseech You, do not torment me." [He (Jesus) had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man.] Often times it had caught him. He was kept bound with chains and in fetters. He broke the bands and was driven
of the devil into the wilderness. Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He said, "Legion," because many devils were entered into him. They besought Him that He would not command them to go out into the deep. There was a herd of many swine feeding on the mountain. They besought Him that He would permit them to enter into them. He permitted them. When the devils entered the swine out of the man, the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake and were choked (drowned).
JOHN 5:19-20 TPNT - 19Most
assuredly I say to you, the Son (of God)
is not able to do anything by Himself except what He would
see (in a vision or dream) the
Father (God) doing; for whatever
that the One would do, then the Son likewise does these things.
20For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything that He does and greater works than these will He show to Him, so that you would be amazed." (Spiritual insight: William Branham's initial healing ministry was based on this type of revelation.)
JOHN 5:30 Amplified - "I am able to do nothing of Myself independently. I decide as I (hear with My spirit ears) am bidden to decide. As the (Father God's) Voice comes to Me, I give (make) a decision (choice to quickly/immediately obey the will of the One Who sent Me)." (Spiritual insight: The invisible spirit body is believed to be/have a mirror image of the visible flesh's 5 senses.)
JOHN 8:31-32 - Jesus said, "If you hold to My teaching, you are really My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (We do not have to assume that since we are a prisoner of circumstances that we have to remain a victim. We can become a victor, through what Jesus Christ has already done for us 2000 years ago.)
JOHN 8:44 NIV - There is no truth in Him (Satan). When he lies, he "speaks" his native language (what comes naturally), for he is a liar and the father of lies.
JOHN 10:4 NIV - His (God's) sheep follow Him because they know His voice.
JOHN 10:27 NIV - My (Jesus') sheep listen to My voice.
JOHN 12:23,28-30 KJV - Jesus answered them, saying,"...Father, glorify Your name." Then came a voice from heaven, saying, "I have both glorified it and will glorify it again." The people therefore, who stood by and heard it, aid that it thundered. Other said, "An angel spoke to Him." Jesus answered, "This Voice came not because of Me, but for your sakes."
LUKE 4:3 NIV - The devil "said" to Him.
LUKE 4:6 NIV - The devil "said" to Him.
LUKE 4:13 NIV - When the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season.
ACTS 5:3 - Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie?
ACTS 8:7 - Unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice (shrieks), came out of many who were possessed (oppressed/ demonized).
ACTS 9:3-4 - He fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul." (God spoke to Saul.)
ACTS 19:15 KJVer - The evil spirit answered, "Jesus I know. Paul I know, but who are you?" The man [in whom the evil spirit (dwelt) was] lept on them, overcame them and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
ACTS 26:13-15 NIV - As I was on the road, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, blazing around me and my companions. We all fell to the ground. I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?..."
Then I asked, "Who are you, Lord?" The Lord replied, "I am Jesus (Christ the Messiah), Whom you are persecuting."
1st CORINTHIANS 2:16 - We have the mind of Christ.
2nd CORINTHIANS 10:5 - We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
EPHESIANS 6:12 NLT - We are NOT fighting against (human) people made of flesh and blood , but against the evil (spirit) rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits (demons) in the heavenly realms.
2nd THESSALONIANS 2:9-11 NIV - The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of (deceit) counterfeit miracles, signs, wonders, and every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing (in body, mind and/or spirit). They perish because they refused (were tricked/deceived/lacked insight)) to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them (allows) a powerful delusion, so that they will believe the lie, and so that all, who have NOT believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness, will be condemned. (Spiritual insight: Remember that Adam and Eve, likewise were deceived by Satan.)
HEBREWS 3:7 NIV The Holy
Spirit says, "If you hear His voice, do NOT harden your hearts as you did
in the rebellion, during the time of testing." (Scriptural insight:
The Holy Spirit and the evil spirits do speak. Scripture says to test
spirits to determine which is of God and which is not. We test the
voices against what God says in the Bible. If the words contradict
scripture, then we know the source.)
HEBREWS 10:11-15 We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, ONCE FOR ALL.
Day after day every (Jewish) priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. When this priest (Jesus) had offered for all time one sacrifice for sin, He sat down
at the right hand of God. Since that time He waits for His enemies to be made His footstool, because by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this.
1st PETER 5:8 - Be sober. Be vigilant,
because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom
he may devour.
2nd PETER 1:17-18 NIV - 17He (Jesus Christ) received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to Him from the Majestic Glory, saying, "This is My son, Whom I love. With Him I am well pleased."
18We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with Him on the sacred mountain.
1st JOHN 4:1-3 NIV - Do not believe every
spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God,
false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize
the Spirit of God.
Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has
come in the flesh is from God,
but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus
is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist.
(Insight: Both the evil spirit and the Holy Spirit puts thoughts into our
Test every thought.)
REVELATION 12:9-11 - The great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, strength, the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down." They (WE) overcame him (the accuser) by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus), and by the word of their testimony (speaking scripture).
REVELATION 14:2 - I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder. I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.
REVELATION 20:1-3 - I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil or Satan, and bound him for a 1,000 years.
He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore.

Dickow, Gregory - Conquering Your Thought Life - DVD - www.changinglives.org - Hear, Read, Speak, Fill up with, and Line up with the Word of God. Do NOT believe the lie of Satan that you have committed the unpardonable sin. Satan does not come looking like a demon. Do not believe the lie that he has power over our family, minds, or finances. The liar has been defeated. We have to deal with his lies. What we believe changes over what we do. Take back what the enemy has stolen. You have a get out of jail key, Who is Jesus. As a sibling of Jesus, you have equal rights with Papa God. You. Take every thought captive that does not line up with God's Word. (Dickow discounts spiritual warfare/exorcism. Regardless, his teaching is very relevant/ practical/useful.) Our present war is between our 2 ears! Recognize and REJECT wrong thoughts, in Jesus name. REPLACE wrong thoughts with God's thoughts. Put on God's eye glasses. When I see germs on me, I see them fleeing, terrorized. Disease flees. Poverty flees. They are allergic to Jesus' Holy Spirit in me. Be like the bouncer in the night club. To the intimidating enemy thought, just say, "NO, in the name of Jesus."

and nailed to the cross.
We appropriate this when we are born again (repent and receive what Jesus did for us in His crucifixion and resurrection).
2/14/2014 is valentine's day and this is His valentine to us, right now.
Scripture says there is now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
This we need to remind both ourselves and the devil, if need be; for Satan is a liar 24/7.
We can declare, in Jesus' name, "Get thee (condemnation/fear/torment) behind me.
Scripture tells me I, as His child, am awesome and wonderful. I have His DNA and His inheritance.
I am covered by His protective blood. I am a regenerated spirit, but I live in a human body that has a human mind and emotions, which do need to come in alignment with the Trinity = a lifetime learning curve."

Valenta, Father Stephen - Forgive Everyone? I'm Sorry, I Cannot - Video www.catholicfocus.com - Video has a section on God instructing Father Valenta to capture and "reject" specific thoughts for specific days for a specific reason. With God's help we can apply this technique with all our thought life. To some degree, I believe, this is what John Nash (A Beautiful Mind) does, now that he better understands his illness.
zephyr @ https://zephyrseas.wordpress.com/2019/08/23/understanding-the-spirit-of-jezebel/ + Dixon's audio link below. - "Many Christians don’t like to think or talk about the spirit realm and the devil Satan and his millions of demons and spirits used in his war against God through His people. The Bible calls Satan the Prince of the Air. Thoughts spoken into the air over the years stay there ready for him to grab and use against us. Through our own words he is able to know our weakest points and grab the words to put in our thoughts at any given time. We have so many scriptures warning us against the wiles of the devil and his army. If you are insecure in any area then your mind will be bombarded continually with thoughts that bring irrational fear and insecurity in areas of your life. Doubt, unbelief, impatience, anger over your situation, desire to quit, speaking it is too hard, questioning where God is in your time of need, isolation, wanting to run anywhere to get away from life, negative thoughts about everything your want or try to do, all are part of the attack of the Jezebel spirit on your mind. I must confess, when I listened to this audio I had to say yes to everything she was speaking about. On one hand I was blown away to realize I fit them all, but on the other hand I was relieved to finally be getting answers that I could use to deal with the problems which were getting the better of me. We all have a calling, a purpose God has put in our heart to do for His Kingdom. He has given us all gifts to use for our particular calling. If the enemy can use any weak areas in our lives to turn us away from our purpose, assignment, calling he will use it." @ https://soundcloud.com/arkministries -

one's body is on the ground anesthetized under the good influence of the Holy Spirit,
or one's body is temporarily transported to another location,

One of the best things we can do for ourselves is get the New Testament cassette or CD and play it on a walkman or in the car, or wherever and whenever we can, so that we become so saturated with God's word and God's heart that the Holy Spirit inside of us will warn us when anything comes that is contrary to His intentions for us. That warning might be an uncomfortableness with music offending to His ears, with a movie wounding to His heart, or with a TV program or internet site harmful to our soul.

Chapter 15 The Double Minded Man from Prepare for War
- www.harvestwarriors.com -
"Satan can inject thoughts into your mind just the same as a doctor can inject
medicine into your body. Satan and his demons can do this from the outside
your body. They do NOT have to be inside you to do it. They can also
do the same thing with emotions...
Fear is Satan's most powerful weapon. However, Satan and his demons can NOT read your mind. Only God can...We must REBUKE Satan and his demons OUT LOUD. Satan will put thought into your mind starting with the word, 'I' to make you think the thought was originated by you...OUT LOUD say something like this, 'Satan and you demons, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ. I will NOT accept that thought. Go away.' Then force yourself to think about scripture; recite a passage OUT LOUD, if necessary, to control your mind...One of the most common attacks is on a person's assurance of salvation."

I reject (refuse and resist) this thought and feeling of _______ which is contrary to God's will (in holy scripture).
I choose to accept only the thoughts in harmony with the Holy Spirit.
I cover my thought (and emotional) life with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ."
I reject intruding evil thoughts and feelings which belong to the enemy. I do NOT accept them.
I replace each unholy thought and feeling with the opposite holy thought and feeling of the Trinity.
I align my mind with the mind of Christ.
I bind my mind to the mind of Christ. May the 2 become 1.
Thank You Lord for reformatting my mind. I praise and worship You. Thanks. Amen.
Chapter 5 Facing Satan's Kingdom - "The (invisible/seldom revealing himself) devil...
as the tempter...delights to inject into our minds wicked thoughts and desires.
Then as the accuser, he loves to taunt us about what a terrible person we are to ever have such wicked and sinful thoughts as those. We must expect that Satan will use the most devious, sneaky, and subtle strategy against us."
Chapter 6 Understand and Don't Be Afraid - Satan's invisible spiritual helpers "will try to increase their areas of hold through more deceivings and more lessening of your own will to the substitution of theirs. These are real spirit beings who have minds, wills, and emotions of their own. They desire to cause you (their victim) to feel with their emotions, think their thoughts, and will - to do what is their will. They will be so clever as to make it almost impossible to separate your own mind, will and emotions from theirs. In helping people get free of deep demonic affliction, I have seen people radically changed when the dictating powers are dispatched (in the name of Jesus) to the place the Lord Jesus Christ sends them. The thoughts that torment their minds cease, the feelings that surged through their emotions are gone, and the will that controlled their will is broken."
"Mark believes 'a believer may be (demonically) afflicted or even controlled in certain areas of his being, but he can never be owned or totally controlled as an unbeliever can. The moment a person becomes a believer (in Christ) the Holy Spirit brings (spiritual/heavenly) birth to his (human) spirit...
The spirit of the (new) Christian is reborn, regenerated, POSSESSED, and sealed by the Holy Spirit...
A believer's soul (personality), containing his mind, his will, and his emotions, is in the process of being transformed...a lifelong process."
Satan "likes nothing better than to project into the mind of a believer vile, evil thoughts and desires, and then to taunt his accusations, 'What kind of a Christian are you to have such wicked thoughts as those?'"
One way to resolve/reverse this attack "is to bring the weapons of our warfare directly against these intruders and force them to leave one's presence. Sometimes aggressive use of prayer, the application of the doctrines of the Word of God, praise to the Lord...is sufficient to break the hold and dictates of any such demonic affliction. At other times, straightforward challenge and taking authority over such intruding powers may be necessary."
Satan like lions "can actually paralyze some prey he stalks, causing the victim to be an early target for destruction...Believers...are the target for Satan's devouring. If he can create fear in us, we are much easier prey for him to destroy. Christians greatly err when they avoid the subject of spiritual warfare...
The victory of Christ over Satan is total and complete. The person who appropriates and applies by faith the victory" wins. Ignorance of the enemy + his defeat and/or ignorance of Jesus' supremacy + victory often results in one becoming a prisoner of war.
Satan's invisible spiritual helpers "will try to increase their areas of hold through more deceivings and more lessening of your own will to the substitution of theirs. These (demons) are real spirit beings who have minds, wills, and emotions of their own.
They desire to cause you (their victim) to feel with their emotions, think their thoughts, and will - to do what is their will. They will be so clever as to make it almost impossible to separate your own mind, will and emotions from theirs.

Chapter 3 NAMES and SYMBOLS of the Holy Spirit "We can firmly believe that we are saved, yet Satan endlessly shoots arrows of apprehension and doubt at our hearts. He deceives us with many subtle lies...When we are filled with the Holy Spirit...all the arrows of Satan are finally stopped. Thus, the Holy Spirit is with us as our surety (guarantee), helping us believe without a doubt that God is real and that Jesus IS our Savior."
Chapter 8 - Discerning Evil Spirits in a Person / Knowing a Tree by its Fruit / The Devil Is Unclean - This can be true both literally and figuratively. Medications and psychiatric drugs often mess up both the mind and the body. The side effects can be worse than the problem/disease/malady. "Unclean spirits, the spirit of the devil, raise ugly imaginations continually against one's own will. They stick like a bur in one's heart, unlike an occasional passing thought. Sometimes unclean spirits cause people to have bad thoughts when they read the Bible. Sometimes they make one feel sick when in the presence of Spirit-filled believers. Those who are oppressed by unclean spirits are in agony, with lewd and filthy imaginations overflowing like a cesspool. When they hear the Word of God, uncontrollable false charges will afflict their heart and arrogant thinking will raise as a snake raises its head.
Luke 6:18 says that these unclean spirits can 'vex'...Evil spirits bring agony and trouble to mind and body.
Though you may believe that you have received the (baptism of the) Holy Spirit, if you are in continual agony, fear and trouble, if you always feel pressed down by a big burden, this is the sign that you are oppressed by evil spirits. No matter how deceitfully the devil may disguise himself, when you see such fruit, you can know that his true character
is like a ravening wolf."

Lake shares the testimony of J Hudson Taylor. In England after visiting China, a voice spoke to Taylor, "If you will walk with Me, we will evangelize Inland China." Taylor founded Inland China Mission. Other sample testimonies where God speaks to individuals: The Spirit of God spoke to Lake, "Go to Indianapolis."
Jesus spoke to Tom Hezmalhaltz that he would have money in 4 days. Something (God) spoke to a man standing at a bank in Monrovia, California and told him to send Tom Hezmalhalx $2,000.00. When Lake landed penniless at Johannesburg, Africa, a lady said to him, "Oh, you are the family. The Lord has sent me to meet you. I want to give you a home."
Lake testified, "That voice (of God) is so common that I never even spoke of it to my wife...
Listen, men in this Word of God (Bible) were guided by the voice of God.
God talked to them. That is the inner thing or real Christian experience."
Lake points out that much of the Bible is a testimony of God speaking to individuals.

Chapter 6 My Early Exposure to Demons According to some deliverance experiences, it appears that demons can hear/perceive one "silently" praying in tongues (with the Holy Spirit) and are aggravated/ tormented by such prayers.
(There can be a demonic praying in tongues, but this tends to be rare/gutteral/ugly.)
Chapter 16 Who Is Satan Anyway? God is everywhere. Satan is NOT. "Demon powers...only know our thoughts if they have access to our mind by dwelling in our soul (mind). I actually doubt that even then can they 'read our mind'...Satan...is a defeated foe, right now, this moment...Remember that Satan only has power over us that we give to him, that we yield. He was disarmed at Calvary (by Jesus Christ)."
Dickerman reminds us that possession is only of non believing Gentiles and NOT of Christians or Messianic Jews. Rather, believers are demonized/oppressed by demons. Believers in Jesus Christ can be tormented from the outside or from the inside (of the mind and or body, but NEVER in the person's spirit where the Holy Spirit lives!)
Christians are possessed by the Holy Spirit. Thank God.

Earley, Dave - 21 Most Effective Prayers of the Bible -
Chapter 6 I Have Sinned - Prayer of David - 2nd Samuel 12:13 shares 2 ideas:
(1) guilt follows (actual) sin like a vulture attaches itself to rotten meat +
(2) God convicts in specifics, whereas Satan accuses (condemns) in generalities.
(Additionally, Satan is apt to berate the whole person rather than the wrong act.
A huge difference! Satan twists and torments.
For instance, he would tell a person to die/commit suicide, rather than tell a bad behavior in the person to die.)
Evans, Mike - The Jerusalem Prayer Team 3/24/2011 newsletter - "Jesus' warning concerning deception was, 'He that endures to the end shall be saved [or shall experience the fullness of salvation].' The word 'endure' in the original Greek means to remain under. In other words, He was saying prophetically, 'Those believers who remain under the Word, who keep the Word before them, behind them, live their lives by the Word of God, will not be deceived.'"

Spiritual revelation/communication comes from 1 of 3 sources -
Holy Spirit, human soul/spirit, or evil spirit. Thus one has a great need
for discernment. Evil spirits can be perceived as angels or good
voices; however they speak half truths/white lies/black lies.
Always ask (1) does the voice/thought/idea/apparition/dream console/comfort
(2) does it agree with scripture
(3) does it exalt Jesus Christ as son of God/Messiah/savior
(4) does it always tell the truth (5) does it attract others to Jesus Christ
(6) does it give peace/freedom/joy (7) does it give life/health/deliverance
(8) does God's Spirit agree (9) does it produce good things/fruit/ blessings?

If a person is frightened, he will say, 'That just scared me to death'...
If I am tempted to be fearful...I say, 'Fear, I resist you in Jesus' Name!'
I refuse to fear...I wouldn't TELL anybody if I had a...fear-thought.
I wouldn't accept it.
I wouldn't tell somebody if the thought came to me. You know the devil can put all kinds of thoughts in your mind. The Bible teaches that there is health and healing in you tongue...I talk health...Worry will kill you. More than one doctor has said,...'There are more people in mental institutions and there are more people in the grave because of worry'...I've been tempted to worry...I said (continually - proclaimed/claimed/announced/refuted/contested the intimidating thought), 'If I don't make it over you (worry/problem/negative thought), I'll make it around you, I'll make it under you.

Autobiography of deliverance from the New Age religion and generational

from the perspective of God's enemy/counterfeiter/traitor/deceiver/ lier.
It is really NOT important that we understand evil, for God's Holy Spirit will
instruct us. Additionally, spiritual things are not understood with the
mind, but rather with the spirit. 3rdly, demonic books and objects can
contaminate/contain demons/evil and need to be destroyed by such as fire...
Robin's nightmares began at the age of 5. Her dreams were vividly real. Sometimes during the day she "saw things, creatures, that nobody else seemed to see." Often she could hear others' thoughts. She "felt things that on one else seemed to perceive." Sometimes she "would walk into a room and see a vision of something that took place there years before." Robin heard "voices nearly all the time...but (initially)...she thought it was...her own mind speaking to" her. Later she would have numerous apparitions of aliens, celestial spirits, and especially of her invisible spirit guide who dubbed itself Marilyn Monroe. At the beginning of her college years she had difficulty concentrating. "The truth was, my mind felt too open. I could hear the spirit more than my own thoughts, even though I tried to shut him out....I struggled to get my own thoughts back, but they were always overpowered. My schoolwork had suffered." Beginning at about age 6 Robin was continuously raped for 6 years, initiating a safe place in her mind. Inside this black box she started hearing voices. Then her spirit would rise above her bed and go into space and into special places. "A gold, shimmery thread connected" her to her body. She was told never to let go of the chord, her connection to her body that allowed her spirit to return. Later her invisible spiritual mentors tried to kill her and subsequently she became aware that they were demonic creatures using her for their own evil purposes. However, precious Jesus Christ rescued, healed, and delivered her. One thing He taught her is that most (spiritual/mental/physical) pain is caused by a spirit of pain, which needs to be bound and placed under the feet of Jesus our Messiah. This spirit of pain is the root cause of many diseases.
Hammond, Frank - Overcoming Rejection -
Some believers in Christ expect God to speak to their minds. God is
a spirit Who communicates with man's spirit. Until a believer
understands that God the Holy Spirit communicates with his spirit, rather
than with his mind, he is likely to experience a lot
of false guidance
from evil spirits, from self, or from others.

Chapter 1 - Life with a Wicked Man - "When people say they heard voices telling them to do evil things, believe it. They absolutely are hearing voices, the voices of demons from hell. A demonic spirit was speaking to me and instructing me in evil at the tender age of 4...I shouted, 'No, I'm stopping! I'm not doing this anymore!' When this invisible being knew that I meant business, the spirit materialized before my eyes. I actually saw the outline of an ugly creature with a smirk on its face. This creature put its arm around me and insisted, 'No, you can't stop.'"

She kept this doll on the dresser and had conversations with it as demonic spirits gave her instructions."

When you (or children) play games that simulate death and violence, a demon spirit attacks you...
In the beginning one small spirit will attack that boy. As he continues to engage in sin, more spirits will attack. Eventually he becomes possessed (oppressed/demonized/mentally ill/insane/disturbed/confused), and the spirits order him around and control his every move. He hears voices muttering, 'Try this. Do this.' The goal of these spirits is to open a trap door and lead this boy straight to hell. Christian children are NOT immune from attack of the enemy."

Kraft, Charles H - Defeating Dark Angels - Breaking Demonic Oppression in the Believer's Life -
Kraft reminds those who are mentally ill that they are NOT insane or incurable,
but are likely oppressed by demons, as are many, including Christians and even
pastors. Kraft cites the "worm theology" where man sees himself negatively as a
worm; Satan puts thoughts into our minds which we choose to accept as our
Demons prefer to torment/ harass/destroy born-again Christians (rather than
non-Christians) to get them to question whether they are saved, sane, lovable,
usable, and/or curable. An oppressing demon when confronted may share that he could not get a
stronger grip on a person who "is too close to Jesus/God" or that he
is "in a mind but not within"
a person/body. If we are feeling oppressed, we can say aloud or under our breath, "If this is the enemy, stop it, in the name of Jesus." During ministry, when a demon or demons respond to a command, sometimes they use a person's voice, but if they are weak they will give the person impressions/thoughts. At such time the person may be confused as to which words are his own and which are of the demon(s). The ministry team will help sort that out. The simplest way to sort through this, if you are alone, is to test the words/thoughts against scripture. If the words/thoughts agree with scripture, they are likely of you or God. When they disagree with scripture then they are apt to be emotional garbage (that needs to be taken to Jesus) or the demon(s) (that feed on that garbage). Since this is a spiritual discussion/response of the demon, it can bypass the mind, and not come to the person's attention until he has heard it with his own ears...
If you feel oppressed by voices, night terrors, or anything that interferes with working, sleeping, having relationships with others, etc, then do anything that will bother the enemy of your being at peace. Try in the name of Jesus, anointing with oil, drinking holy water, making the sign of the cross, speaking light into dark places, use blessed salt, eat a few grains of blessed salt, threaten to send the voices into the abyss, cover your-self with the blood of Christ, say the Lord's prayer, say psalm 91, renounce and reverse any curse that might now be in effect, sing/play hymns, or pray in tongues.

Liardon, Roberts - God's Generals -
Chapter 3 Evan Roberts, Welsh Revivalist, in God's Generals -Why They succeeded and Why Some Failed
Revivalist Evan Roberts "commented to his friend...that he was afraid of speaking words that weren't of God. He heard many voices, and sometimes he wasn't sure which was God's and which was his." Roberts suffered many nervous breakdowns because of this spiritual conflict and because he failed to get sufficient rest, nutrition and mentoring during his fantastic ministry. He (like William Branham and other awesome men greatly anointed of God) failed to have a good spirit filled ministry board in place (that did not contain yes men and to which the ministry was accountable). Because this protection was not in place, he allowed others to manipulate/brainwash/deceive him when he was not operating under/in the anointing of God. The deception was so strong that for a season he even rejected his own relatives.
Chapter 10 William Branham - A Man of Notable Signs and Wonders
God's Holy Spirit spoke to Branham many times, initially to young Branham as wind in a tree, somewhat like when God spoke to Moses from the burning bush. Remember, God also spoke to Samuel as a child, too, when he was alone in bed.
God's angels spoke often to Branham. One of the 1st things told to him is that our thoughts speak louder in heaven than do our words on earth. What the angel meant is that the words of our heart, our true attitudes, are what count to God. The angel did NOT mean those inner negative voices from the enemy that torment us. The angel was referring to man's unconfessed hidden sin, that needed to be repented of and forgiven. Sexual fantasy/lust might be one example of a sin/thought pattern that needs to be given to God.

HOW TO DETECT THE SOURCE OF A VOICE - "In order to detect which is the 'voice of God,' and which is the "voice of the devil," we need to understand that the Holy Spirit alone is charged to communicate the will of God to the believer, and that He works from within the spirit of the man enlightening the understanding (Eph. 1: 17-18), so as to bring him into intelligent co-working with the mind of God.
The purpose of the Holy Spirit is, briefly, the entire renewal of the redeemed one, in spirit, soul and body, He therefore directs all His working to the liberation of every faculty, and never in any way seeks to direct a man as a passive machine, even into good. He works in him to enable him to choose the good, and strengthens him to act, but never--even for "good"--dulls him, or renders him incapable of free action, otherwise He would nullify the very purpose of Christ's redemption on Calvary, and the purpose of His own coming.
When believers understand these principles, the "voice of the devil" is recognizable, i.e., (1) when it comes from outside the man, or within the sphere of his circumference, and not from the central depth of his spirit, where the Holy Spirit abides; (2) when it is imperative and persistent, urging sudden action without time to reason, or intelligently weigh the issues; (3) when it is confusing and clamorous, so that the man is hindered from thinking; for the Holy Spirit desires the believer to be intelligent, as a responsible being with a choice, and will not confuse him so as to make him incapable of coming to a decision.
The speaking of evil spirits can also be a counterfeit of the apparent inner speaking of the man himself, as if he were himself "thinking," and yet with no concentrated action of the mind; e.g., a persistent and ceaseless 'commentary' going on somewhere within, apart from volition or mind action, commenting on the man's own actions or the actions of others, such as 'you are wrong, you are never right...God has cast you off...you must not do that,' etc., etc."
HOW TO DETECT THE SOURCE OF "TEXTS" SUPERNATURALLY SPOKEN
"The 'voice of the devil' as an angel of light is more difficult to detect, especially when it comes with wonderful strings of texts which makes it appear like the voice of the Holy Spirit. Voices from without, either as from God or angels, may be rejected, yet the believer may be deceived by 'floods of texts' which he thinks are from God.
In this case the detection needs more knowledge, i.e.,
(1) Does the believer rely upon these 'texts' apart from the use of his mind or reason? This indicates passivity.
(2) Are these texts a prop to him? (a) undermining his reliance on God Himself; (b) weakening his power of decision, and (right) self- reliance.
(3) Do these texts influence him? and (a) make him elated and puffed up as "specially guided by God," or (b ) crush and condemn him, and throw him into despair and condemnation, instead of leading him to sober dealing with God Himself, over the course of his life, with a keen and increasing knowledge of right and wrong obtained from the written Word by the light of the Holy Spirit?
If these, and other such like results, are the fruit of the "texts" given, they may be rejected as from the Deceiver, or at least an attitude of neutrality taken to them, until further proof of their source is given.
The voice of the devil as distinguishable from the voice of God may also be known by its purpose and outcome. Obviously if God speaks direct to a man, that man must be infallibly correct in regard to the specific matter in question. e.g ., A believer may say he is "led" to ask another to a meeting. The one asked must accept, or else give the lie to the other's "leading." If the one who believed he was "led" still holds to that position, he considers the one who declined as deceived, or else puts the matter aside without consideration, not realizing that failure in guidance means that he has deceived himself, or else become deceived by deceiving spirits."

Susanna Francina -
3.0 "Either we purse our enemies, or our enemies will pursue us...Where ever a strong hold exists, it is a demonically induced pattern of thinking. Specifically, it is a 'house made of thoughts, which has become a dwelling place for satanic activity (according to Francis Frangipane in his The 3 Battlegrounds: the mind, the Church and the Heavenly places)...Strongholds of the mind is built by wrong thinking patterns/imaginations"
(that contradict God's thoughts as revealed in holy Scripture).
3.1.3 The 3rd Line of Assault - Sin Reigns. - "'Earth' refers not only to the (thought) structure in a human that can generate different degrees of oppression or possession, but also refers to...even nations...The moment sin enters into a person's heart, it destroys the...relationship between God and man...
Whenever the Word of God is not elevated as a standard against evil, the person is passive and defenseless with no fight against Stan's assault...
Satan steals the prayer life of the Christian, his anointing, his calling, God's plan for his life...his authority, his destiny...Don't tolerate passivity...War against it."
7.1.2 TECHNO-DIMENSIONAL SPIRITUAL WARFARE (METAPHYSICS)
"Technology is in a position to change the 'mind-body-spirit connection', through new technologies that will transform brain function and bypass the free will. The main ideal of the (National Institute of Health and the) military Neurobiology (DARPA)149 is to enhance the cognitive capacities of soldiers – through a brain implanted (chip) – to record and manipulate mental processes of the brain from a distance – in order to control the 'artificial human warrior'.150
Intel Labs Pittsburgh is already designing such BRAIN CHIPS, while GRIN technology has notified of established nonverbal transmitters that can be used between people - a mind-to-mind-thought transformer that allows people to communicate without words. Dr Christopher James was the administrator demonstrating it a year ago at the University of Southampton’s Institute of Sound and Vibration Research. He commented that true brain interfacing is achieved by the BCT (brain-to-machine interfacing) technology.151"
184.108.40.206.1 ‘THE NEW SCIENCE of the MIND’
"The power of the imagination is becoming confused with inspiration and the power of God’s Holy Spirit…Occultists have known that the most powerful way to tap into the (evil) spirit dimension is through visualization."
220.127.116.11.2 FORBIDDEN GATES and PORTALS -
"Mind controlling (evil) Spirits, which influence people’s MIND’S, BODIES or HOMES should 'be bound', while good angels ought to 'be loosed' in the Name of Jesus Christ. Underworld evil deities (Nephilim spirits) have the ability to migrate between the 'underworld' and the 'natural world'."
18.104.22.168.3 THE 5TH DIMENSION of the MIND (spiritual doors & gates)
"When you speak forth an imagination, you give life to it...There is a 5th dimension beyond that which is known to man. This is the dimension of the imagination...this 5th dimensional gateway existed and could be opened between the material word and the immaterial world...Freedom to imagine must first be fortified with chapter and verse, Bible truth...
There are 4 cardinal doors which are defended by terrible images called 'guardians of the doors.'"
22.214.171.124.3.1 THE 5TH ABNORMAL FACULTY of the MIND -
Some believe that through "the '5th abnormal faculty of the mind' evil spirits can "manipulate a person. It is through this 5th abnormal faculty – called 'maya (zero point/illusion) where a person is in a state of phantasmagoria (fantasy)' – that evil spirits enter through (1 of) the 5 main areas: 'lust, anger, greed, vanity and attachment to mundane things'. (Supposedly) no one on earth can be manipulated by demons except through the 5th abnormal faculty of the mind." (Obviously, this is one of many theories/open doors)...
Thought projection is a very confidential aspect of subtle manipulation of the power of darkness against people. The only way to overcome the manipulations of thought is to set the thoughts of your heart solely on things of Christ. God gave the Christian the power in accordance to Matthew 18:18. While binding demonic powers, the Christian must bind the demons of vanity, fear, anger, lust, forgetfulness and cast them to specific locations."
126.96.36.199.3.2 FACTS of IMAGINATION
"One cannot combat thoughts with thoughts. You have to fight imaginations with the (SPOKEN) Word of God that works mighty inside of you. It keeps you dealing with things that are not true.172 The freedom to imagine must first be fortified with chapter and verse of Bible Truth. Praising God is a spiritual weapon that wills still the energy of your soul. The blood of Jesus is another powerful spiritual weapon against (negative) imagination...Never give (unscriptural) imaginations life by speaking them out...God deals with you (Holy) Spirit to (human) spirit, NOT (Holy) Spirit to mind."
188.8.131.52.3.3 SIN CONCEIVED 1ST in the IMAGINATION -
"Root of imagination...is birthed in the soul realm. Your soul is your mind, will, imagination, emotions and intellect. Genesis 3:6...(Personal) sin (curse/illness) is (most) always 1st conceived in the imagination...It’s one thing for you to have an (improper) imagination;; it’s another thing for you to entertain that imagination (unscriptural idea/thought/emotion/feeling/belief/doctrine). Be careful to dwelling on imaginations.173 When an (inappropriate) imagination comes...you need to (immediately reject/replace it) take it captive."
184.108.40.206 THE DANGER of (unscriptural/unholy) VISUALIZATION -
"According to...Chester and Betsy Kylstra, minister (counselor) controlled and directed imagery creates a potential hazard for the person and actually set the person up for the following errors:201
1.Possible control by the counselor/minister.
2.Possible infiltration by demons (spirit guides)
3.Possibility of opening up areas that neither the person nor the minister is equipped or ready to handle."
(Sometimes) "visualization, a guided imaginary way (imagery) is (potentially)...dangerous for the counselee as well as for the counselor. Where such a method is practiced, a counterfeit Spirit – a spirit guide (perhaps) called Jesus – will (can potentially/has legal permission to)...take over and mislead the whole counseling process – even with demonic power and miracles."
220.127.116.11 WORKINGS of OCCULT MANIPULATION -
"Direct manipulations is a physic attack projected against a specific person or persons with specific evil plan, whilst 'indirect manipulations' is like a deadly trap set against people with no particular person in mind." (Lord, we cover ourselves with Your blood and reject all evil arrows, in Jesus' name.)

Chapter 3 Accusing Spirits "Have you ever had a conversation with yourself?...To take captive our thoughts, we need to discourse with them...Some thoughts come in the first person (I, me, myself) making us think they are (masquerading as) our own (thoughts)...Many of our thoughts come from someone or something else, even when they are (spoken) in the first person...We have the authority to command, in the name of Jesus, that Satan's demons only talk to us or tempt us in the second person (you, they, he, she)." (Instead of an evil spirit speaking near or in us and saying, "I cannot resist that chocolate candy," IT would now have to say, "YOU cannot resist that chocolate candy;" thereby the Holy Spirit would be helping our discernment. However, be warned that some individuals have a "projection" problem, whereby they seldom discern that they feel or think certain things and thus project their feelings and thoughts onto others and say that others feel and think what, in fact, they feel and/or think! This is extremely brainwashing for children and people pleasers, who might not understand what is happening. Actually, "brainwashing" is what Satan does 24/7 to the majority of humanity.)
"We need to stop every thought and examine it to know whether it is from the devil or from God; determine whether it is a truth or a lie (and reject each detrimental idea/thought/feeling)...Examining our thoughts is powerful, preventing mental illness, and banishing sin and disease from our lives. It can keep us from being 'double minded.' James 1:8 says, 'A double minded man is unstable in all his ways'...
Often doctors tell them they are schizophrenic or manic-depressive, thus labeling them with a horrible and usually false diagnosis that haunts...brings additional condemnation...an excuse so they never face the (root cause) demons that actually cause (trigger) their disorder...All humans hear or perceive voices in our minds. For some they are much stronger than others...All day and night, Satan sands before God accusing us. As he does so, he plants thoughts in our minds that accuse us to ourselves, accuse others, and God...(Holy Spirit) discernment gives us an 'on and of' switch...like a traffic signal...
It provides a way to mentally sit and observe our thoughts...to see if it is safe to proceed...On the highway of our Christian life, God's Word provides the rules, but our obedience is our choice."
(Thus we must real out loud our Bible DAILY, so our physical and spiritual ears will hear what our eyes see and our mouth speaks. As we marinate our heart with God's Word, we take on His nature, more and more each time we soak in His Word, the way a sponge would soak up moisture. Any thought which contradicts Scripture should be rejected AND replaced with God's thoughts. Buy and use a concordance, so you can look up and memorize the opposite of any lie the enemy tries to put on you. For instance holy scripture says that we are to have a sound mind. 2nd Timothy 1:7 KJV sound mind -
God did NOT give us a(n evil) spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Any idea, word, disease, diagnosis, illness, or thought that contradicts God is a lie. We can agree with the doctor, devil, demon, illness or we can disagree. It is better to agree with the Word of God, Jesus, than to agree with harm. We may need to fight a spiritual battle, but we have holy angels on our team, the winning team. We can defeat both physical and mental illness, in Jesus name - not in our human power, but in His power, if we do not quit before the finish line. Heidi Baker defeated flesh eating bacteria. Rolland Baker defeated a nervous breakdown. www.irismin.com We too can keep on keeping on, in His strength - never in our own strength. Thanks Papa God.)

Chapter 8 How to Meet Your Spirit Guide
"Silva Mind Control defines it (channeling/spirit communication) as 'simply allowing Higher Consciousness to USE (borrow/inhabit/steal/kidnap/infest/infect/download into) our Mind/Brain (imagination/thoughts) mechanism - temporarily - to give us knowledge, POINTS of VIEW, or inspiration that we could NOT have gotten by ourselves.' (per Spring 1987 The Silva Method newsletter) ..Personally, I define a channeler as anyone who knows how to [deliberately or inadvertently (such as through inheritance)] hypnotize himself into an altered state of consciousness (especially at night through dreams/nightmares) in order to PERMIT a MASQUERADING DEMON to COMMUNICATE through him whatever it wants to for the purpose of deceiving...Channeling is in fact nothing but a sophisticated euphemism for one form of demon possession (oppression)...Lies (are) being spouted by these 'guides' (counselors/evil spirits/demons) through channels (ignorant victims or obliging opportunists)."
THE ENEMY’S VOICE excerpt - recommended -
The Voice Itself
1. A thought just pops into your head, but the thought didn’t come through your spirit.
2. Most of the time throughout the day,
the Enemy’s voice will sound exactly like your own inner voice: plain, flat, ordinary.
3. Sometimes the Enemy’s voice is pushy, driving, insistent, impulsive.
“It is an emergency. You must do it right now or ____.”
1. Words from the Enemy usually contain some elements of truth.
Examples: Satan quoted scriptures when he tempted Jesus.
(Matthew 4:6) A servant girl said Paul and Silas were servants of God. (Acts 16:17)
2. Words from the Enemy are usually negative. Usually critical of yourself or someone else. Promote separation among Christians.
3. Sometimes the Enemy’s words are what you want to hear. They promote pride. Aim is to please you, not your spirit. They promote rebellion. They encourage you to do your own thing.
4. Sometimes the Enemy’s words sound positive. They sound like something Jesus would say. But they are out of season. It is the wrong time for it.
How You Feel
2. The Enemy’s words cause fear and confusion. Questions, questions, questions.
3. You feel guilty, discouraged, burdened down, weary, or stuck.
4. Sometimes his words make you feel prideful. You feel better than others, critical, stubborn, alone, angry, or argumentative. You develop a “I am right and you are wrong” type attitude.
1. No joy or peace.
2. Resists testing. Example: Refusal to submit directional words to your own pastor for confirmation.
3. Sometimes there is some temporary or superficial fruit. Example: A witch doctor brings healing in one area while the person still has major bondages in other areas.
Use your mind & these lists of criteria to judge what you heard. For example, “Was the voice I heard at peace? Did it line up with the Bible? Was it edifying?” If the words were really from Jesus, then they will meet all of these criteria.
But that is NOT enough. If you only use your mind to decide if it was Jesus, then you will never be 100% positive who was speaking. Jesus speaks to your spirit. So in a sense your mind needs to check with your spirit to see if it was Jesus. Your spirit must also bear witness that it was Jesus. Sometimes you will just know, that you know, that you know, that Jesus spoke to you. That is simply another way of saying, “It wasn’t just in my mind. My spirit knows it was Jesus.”
But it isn’t always that obvious. Sometimes Jesus will actually talk to a person, but they still aren’t at all sure whether it was really Jesus, because they believe lies like: “I am not worthy.” Or, “Jesus, wouldn’t really talk to me.” Even if the words Jesus said get confirmed by several other people, they still wouldn’t be sure that it was really Jesus.
The solution is for them to use tool 11 to get rid of their lies. Or to go back to the navigation bar, and click on, “Get Your Heart Healed”.
Some people worry, “What if I make a mistake? What if I claim I heard Jesus, when it really wasn’t Jesus?”
Well, don’t worry about hearing the enemy. He would like you to worry about that a lot. Then you won’t even try to hear Jesus for fear of making a mistake. Don’t side with the enemy on this issue. Go for it...
Keep in mind that the enemy has probably been telling you negative things throughout your normal day anyway. And you have probably just been assuming it is your own thoughts and feelings. So spending time like this, asking Jesus questions and listening for His voice, is going to be a tremendous help, because it will help you learn to recognize the different voices. Then you will be able to stop all that negative junk the enemy has been telling you throughout the day.

book - Walking in Victory
"Satan was disarmed and defeated at the cross (Colossians 2:15). He has NO power or authority over a believer other than lies and deception. Every believer has been given power and authority over ALL the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). Lies are Satan’s only means of holding us in bondage. When we are anxious, fearful, discouraged or depressed, we need to ask God to show us the lies that are causing these emotions. Then we need to ask God to reveal Truth to us from His Word that will contradict the lies...While standing at my kitchen sink one morning, feeling very disheartened and discouraged, I asked the Lord, 'Why am I feeling so discouraged?' I heard Him say, 'What have you been thinking?' I said, 'I have been thinking that the situation that I am in is impossible.' Then I heard Him say, 'What does my Word say?' At that moment I realized that I had believed a lie, and I said, 'Your Word says, "Nothing is impossible with God" (Luke 1:37).' When I saw the Truth, all the discouragement lifted...When we agree with our enemy, we become fearful and depressed. When we agree with God, we will walk in faith and courage. Our enemy loses his hold on us when we agree with the Truth of God’s Word."
Nee, Watchman - The Spiritual Man - volume 3 - Chinese author insists that man must learn to recognize/repulse/refuse/ reject evil spirits/thoughts (often coming/entering from outside) in/to his mind or continue to be tempted/deceived into losing his sovereignty/will. When a Christian can no longer govern his own mind, that is a red flag to help him perceive that it is the enemy who is managing his mind. A Christian can ask himself, "Are these my thoughts? Is it I who am thinking?" If the answer is no, then he must conclude that these thought are not his but the enemy's. Recommended for the pastor's library.

"I define a strong-hold as 'a thought process impregnated by a(n evil)
that keeps a person in bondage.' A strong-hold is a
fortress or anything you run into for protection. 2nd Corinthians 10:5
tells us that (evil) spiritual strongholds are formed by thoughts that
raise them-selves up above and against the knowledge of Christ...
Let God show you any (unhealthy) strongholds that have developed in your life...
Let the Truth of God uproot the lies of the devil, so that demonic strongholds are demolished, and you are free to worship the true and living God."
Prince, Derek - They Shall Expel Demons www.derekprince.com is part autobiography where Prince shares that he had to learn to distinguish between his own thoughts and the negative pessimistic thoughts planted by a demon. Prince learned that the best way to repel depression or any demonic entity is to quote scripture contradicting each and every wrong thought. How did he know what was wrong? Any thought that contradicts God's words is wrong. In order to become free and to stay free he had to be intimate with Jesus and His words in scripture. Then he had to have the courage to copy Jesus.

Renner, Rick -
"The 'strongholds (saint) Paul refers to are lies that the devil has ingrained
so deeply in your mind and in your belief system that they now exert power over
certain areas of your life. Just as ancient rulers liked to build their castles
perched high on a mountainside,
the devil attempts to build strong lies in your mind so he can
rule you from a lofty position in your thoughts and emotions.
Although you may know logically that the lies the enemy speaks to your mind are untrue, these lies still wage war in your soul, attempting to sabotage your sense of self-worth and your self-image. You see, when a person has a stronghold in his mind or emotions, he has thick, invisible walls around him that act like both a fortress and a prison in his life. Like the walls of a fortress, these lies insulate him from people who may try to break in to help him see the truth. Although others may want to help this person, they often find it impossible to break through the invisible barriers that surround his mind and emotions. As a result, the person under mental and emotional assault is held captive like a prisoner to those lies. He sits behind mental and emotional bars, viewing life through the illusion of bondage that Satan has put into his mind. He looks at others, sadly wishing he could be free like them, not realizing that he has already been set free by the blood of Jesus Christ. The lies that operate in his soul keep him bound in an inner 'prison' that he can’t seem to break out of by himself. So when you read Paul’s words about 'strongholds' in 2nd Corinthians 10:4, you need to picture both a fortress and a prison in your mind and then apply this picture to your own life. Are there any areas of your mind that are currently controlled by the enemy’s lies of fear, doubt, and worry? Do you find yourself being repeatedly attacked in the areas of your self-worth and self-image? Are these attacks debilitating and crippling? Do you feel like a hostage to these areas of your mind and emotions? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have probably allowed the devil to build strongholds in your mind and emotions that are hindering you from stepping out to do something God has purposed for you to do in your life.
If that’s your situation, 1st recognize and repent for permitting those strongholds to develop in the 1st place.
Then go back and see how the devil gained this foothold in your life. After you discover how the devil was able to work so deeply in your mind and emotions, ask the Lord to forgive you and to cleanse you from this devilish operation in your soul...
Reject the devil’s claim on your mind and emotions, and command him to leave, in Jesus’ name.
Then get back on the path to right believing and right thinking by renewing your mind daily with the Word of God.
Lord (God), I realize that the enemy has been attempting to control my self-worth and my self-image through lies that have been operating in my mind and emotions for a very long time. Because I allowed the devil access to my thought life in times past, I have been like a hostage held captive in an inner prison. I can see now how others have tried to help me, but they haven’t been able to break through the strong walls of these mental lies that have surrounded my thinking. So today I am turning to You, Holy Spirit. I ask You for help as I learn to utilize the weapons of my warfare that You have supplied. Please help me uproot, tear down, and permanently walk free of every mental lie of the enemy for the rest of my life (in the name and resurrection power of Jesus my savior)!"

Rothschild, Jennifer - http://christianwomenonline.net/2009/06/01/sunny-interviews-jennifer-rothschild/ - "I entertained a steady stream of self talk over the years. And unfortunately, lots of it was destructive. God began to show me when I was in my 20ies the damaging effect of what I was saying to my soul and that if I didn’t control my thoughts, my thoughts would control me. He showed me the best way to control my thoughts was to make them truthful. I went on a journey going from destructive self talk to constructive, life-giving soul talk! Once I learned how to recognize lies I was telling myself, I refused them into my 'Thought Closet,' relabeled them with truth and I’ve repeated the habit for years now. How has it changed me? I am 'wardrobed' in the liberating garment of truth and know who I am in Christ-that makes a girl far more comfortable with herself!"

Sanford, John Loren & Paula - www.elijahhouse.org - God's Power to Change - Healing the Wounded Spirit - from The Transformation Series - Chapter 5 - Defilements, Devils and death Wishes - This chapter infers that one's human spirit (soul) can send signals out that can be picked up by another (sensitive) spirit (soul) nearby, often misinterpreting/misunderstanding the signal as one's own, but odd/unusual, thoughts. Frequently these "vibes" are evil/unwanted/unsolicited, even demonic at times. (This can be quite dangerous in the wrong environment, such as in the presence of sexually promiscuous predators.) For safety's sake, individuals need to be forewarned of such potential hazards. On the other hand, counselors can often pick up clues to perhaps on occasion assist their clients, without being entrapped, especially in the area of sexual or financial enticement. (Idea may be more apt, if one uses the word "soul" rather than human "spirit" especially when dealing with born-again individuals. Much of Sanfords' ideology source is Agnes Sanford, refuted by many. Invite the Holy Spirit to mentor you, entertaining the true aspects, while omitting the erroneous portions. Often those operating in the occult work with God given spiritual truths, but with evil motives &/or with evil spirits.)
Savard, Liberty - Shattering Your Strongholds
Preface + Chapter #1
Chapter 2 The Rest of the Truth Savard notes that she does NOT think that Satan can read minds (as done in God's heaven) but recognizes that he does have access the accumulated historical negative evidence against us, (and especially tries to use our forgiven sins against us, the ones under Jesus' blood covering, those which God has forgotten). "However, Satan is not the root of your problem. He only uses what already exists. The root problem is a vulnerability of a damaged soul and its strongholds. Erected by a wounded soul to keep further pain out, these (demonic) strongholds keep the pain in (and) God's truth out."
Schubert, Linda - 5 Minute Miracles - Praying for People with Simplicity and Power - www.linda-schubert.com - Booklet's chapter 2 The Holy Spirit Our Enabler shares "When Jesus speaks, the words or impressions will express love, not condemnation...Even a correction will have a hug in it...(God's) thoughts are the nature and character of Jesus."

Chapter 3 The Holy Spirit, the Great Teacher says,
When God instructs us,
He shows us that no truly awakened conscience could ever commit that
(unpardonable) sin, because, when it is committed, the conscience
is seared and causes NO upset to the sinner..."The voice of the evil one
whispers (lies)...We do not vainly imagine that angels whisper in our ears and that devils do the
(Thus, if we "feel" guilty/condemned", then we are innocent. It is the enemy of our souls who is the condemner.
God does NOT condemn. God convicts of true sin, leading the sinner to repentance/peace.)
"Both good and evil spirits hold conversation with men, and some of us have experienced this...
The (Holy) Spirit speaks in men's ears...In ages gone by, He (often) spoke in dreams and visions, but now He (often) speaks by His Word (scripture)...That good thought was put there by the (Holy) Spirit. He often guides His people into all truth by suggesting."
Thompson, Robb - Breaking Free
"Do you feel as if your mind has become a battleground
thoughts and images? Do thoughts of worry, fear, inadequacy, and failure seem to
enter your mind, no matter how hard you try to break free? Having given his life
to Jesus Christ in a mental institution, Robb Thompson knows, firsthand,
how to break free and live a life of victory...
Breaking Free shows you how to take control of your life and live as God intended for you to live. You will learn how to identify God’s voice, the necessary keys to access the promises of God, + the importance of trusting God’s book and not your emotions."
His TV broadcasts include assorted testimony, his and others. One recommendation is to do what he did - command the bothersome thoughts to repeat their words to Christ's cross. He mentally/in-his-mind/imagination captured those thoughts in his hands and took them to Christ's cross. Each time he did/does this, the thoughts disappear.
Rob learned to replace those unhelpful thoughts with the thoughts of Christ (found printed in red letters in the Bible).
(Additionally, one day he decided that if Christ could save his spirit, then Christ could also get rid of his need for medicine. He destroyed his meds, but after realized he had lost his crutch. In desperation, the only remaining reliance was Jesus. He did receive his miracle/deliverance after toughing it out. God does not always give us a quick fix, but He is our MD and will never abandon us.)
Thompson, Steve - You May All Prophesy - www.morningstarministries.org - "By inquiring of God concerning something we know to be contrary to His revealed will, we are already participating in a deception...We just need to obey...If...we continue to ask concerning His (permissive) will, we may receive permission, but only at a great cost spiritually...If we willfully choose to believe a lie, God will allow us to believe it."

Chapter 13 The Power of Your Thoughts "Seeds that are
actually planted in the rich
soil of your mind are the thoughts your
entertain, rehearse, meditate and dwell upon." Consider the
parable of the seeds planted in different soils. "Adam and Eve
to Satan and agreed with the lies that he told and (they) acted
upon them...You MUST cast down every thought and argument that
contradicts the Word of God.
Plead the blood of Jesus over your mind...What you allow yourself to thing and meditate on today, whatever good or bad, will determine what you bring into your future. Many people blame the devil for their problems." However Dr. Robert Schuller compares our mind to a TV satellite. Each individual tunes in or out what he/she elects. "We alone have the power to turn the (TV/radio/internet/phone) channel" on or off. Remember, all thoughts are NOT equal. Discern between those which agree with the Word of God and those that do NOT. Reject IMMEDIATELY those which contradict God.

Chapter 4 Rise and Be Healed - "I decided to push my right foot out to show her I couldn't walk...
I thought I could feel the floor. But an inner voice (contradicting thought) said, 'No, you don't. You don't feel the floor'...'I do feel the floor,' I thought, but my mind kept saying, 'No, you don't. You don't feel the floor. Get out of here. This is no place for you.'" (Thoughts come to our mind from 3 main sources - Holy Spirit, human spirit, evil spirit. We can ignore, accept, or reject these thoughts.) "Dr. Owellen said, 'Delores, I have to caution you about something. Satan is going to try to tell you that you've not been healed.'"
Chapter 5 Good Times, Bad Times "Crazy thoughts started running through my mine...
My mind needed a lot of convincing to understand what had happened to my body...
One night I had an attack on my herniated esophagus...All knotted up, shaking from pain and fear, 'I won't have this!' I shouted, and then I started getting angry (at the problem). 'God, I won't have this!' I screamed. Suddenly, it felt as though something opened up inside of my chest, and then came out of it. The pressure and pain disappeared...
Dr Richard Casdorph, a Spirit-filled physician, later asked me if I understood what had happened during the esophagus attack...He said I had engaged in spiritual warfare. Satan had tried to put the illness back on me, he explained. He added that God would not always protect me as He had done that night, that I would have to learn for myself how to combat the evil one, using all the spiritual provisions God had made for me...I learned to take authority over pain, in the name of Jesus and when I prayed IT always went away." "I had to deal with strange words going around in my mind...Satan kept telling me that I had lost my mind and gone bananas. Then he started whispering in my ear, telling me that strange words (tongues) were proof I was going crazy. At that time I didn't even believe in Satan, that he even existed, except that he was the keeper of the pit down in hell... Through the years, one of greatest fears was that I would lose my mind before I died...because I had taken so man drugs (prescriptions)...The fear of losing my mind provided Satan with an opening to hit me where I was weak. He'll do it every time."
Woodworth-Etter, Maria - Signs and Wonders - publisher www.whitakerhouse.com - Chapter 8 God's Power shares that the greater glory/power of God the greater the oppression/opposition of the enemy. "Everything was done to confuse me in order that I would make a failure. My head was aching so that I would hardly see...I cried, 'Lord help me and glorify Thyself.' The (Scripture) words came, 'He said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak to thee.'(Ezekiel 2:1 KJV) 'Be not afraid of their faces, for I am with thee to deliver the.' (Jeremiah 1:8 KJV) - Bless God, I had not spoken 5 minutes (to the congregation) until I had forgotten (both) the roaring in my head and my enemies."
Wright, Henry - Accusing Spirits booklet (and audio) - www.pleasantvalleychurch.com - Thoughts can come from us, God, or Satan. If thoughts do not agree with the word of God, we can reject or capture and bind them, in the name, power and authority of Jesus. Accusing spirits can operate in 99% truth. Always check the motive. Good words can have a wrong motive. Beware. Do NOT act out what the accusing spirits make us feel. Rather, trust what scripture says. Accusing spirits accuse us of sins we have already repented of and already turned away from. Feeling guilty after repenting, is evidence of the work of an accusing spirit. Satan's repeated lies become programmed into our brains if we believe them. Do NOT trust your feelings. Rather, trust the words of God, the only truth. Scripture says that there is NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1. Disagree with any accusing spirit. James 4:7-10 says to resist the devil and he will flee.
Wyatt, Ryan - School of the Supernatural -
Live the Supernatural Life that God Created You to Live -
Spirit Talk - According to Wyatt,
"Any spirit realm (unseen) communications will come to you...as a
spontaneous thought...idea...word...feeling...impression...vision... registered
in your mind...When the Holy Spirit speaks to you, He will speak...directly into
your spirit, but you process that communication with your mind. The enemy,
Satan, does NOT speak to you through your spirit. Demons speak directly to
your mind by inserting thoughts into your mind."
Each of us as to ask, "Is this me...God...(or) the enemy?" We must continually inspect "if what (thoughts) we are hearing (in our minds) lines up with the character of the Word (of God)...There is a difference between condemnation and conviction. Conviction (leads to repentance and) is a gift from the Holy Spirit...(whereas) condemnation...guilt and shame show you that the enemy is speaking to you, because they line up with his character (that humiliates/embarrasses).
In the spirit realm, speaking with your mouth and with actual words is completely unnecessary. In the spirit realm, it is actually a lower form of communication. In the spirit realm, you communicate with instant communication, spirit to spirit, thought to thought."
[1st CAUTION. God spoke/created all earthly domains via speech. Godly speech does have significant value, in spiritual warfare (in earthly and 1st & 2nd heavens/atmospheres) and especially in self defense against demonic attacks such as nightmares; don't forget, praying/singing out loud in tongues is a speech related spiritual weapon/tool.
2nd CAUTION - Holy/evil spirit communication to human spirit is NOT same as holy/evil spirit communication to human mind (soul/brain/emotions). Yes, the human mind/soul while on the earth, does/may need to decode/translate what the spirit world is transmitting to our human spirit. If our human spirit is visiting/vacationing in the 3rd heaven, it may not need our soul/mind as a translator there. Additionally, no evil/demons would be in attendance in the 3rd heaven; nor would there be sickness/disease/disorders nor flesh that is susceptible to calamity. Soul/mind/personality/identity - perhaps yes.]
Per Wyatt, right side of brain mostly handles the intuition and imagination, whereas the left side deals more with analysis (or the filtering in/out of what the right side receives). Helps to tuning in God's voice are music, worship, tongues, and nature plus consistent/quality/daily time visiting with the Lord (as a guest Who we would not offend by listening to the radio or watching TV at the same time).
Wyns, Peter D - Fighting Death and Other Desperate Battles -
In chapter 5 The Warrior the nights at the hospital were the time of the worst attacks.
Demonic voices would intrude into her mind concerning her invalid husband Ronnie.
They used the personal pronouns to trick her, "He's not going to make it. I know it.
I am really only fooling myself. I have been living in a poor man's fantasy...He's going to die.
I am so tired. I should stop this empty hope and just give up."
Clarice Holden came to her senses and apologized to God.
Then she prayed, "In Jesus name:
I renounce every lying word that came to me.
I renounce the evil words that I spoke.
I renounce them all.
I reject those wicked demon spirits.
I will have nothing to do with them.
I rebuke you demon spirits.
I command all of you to go.
Thank You, Lord...Today I rededicate my life to serve You and to stand in Your strength.
Come, Holy Spirit, wash me and help me serve You better."
Yoder, Dr Rebecca Brown - He Came to
Set the Captives Free -
A tormented person may be rescued by asking God to remove all his ability to
perceive the spirit world plus to ask Him to sever between his soul and his
spirit. Hebrews 4:12 NIV The word of God is quick, piercing
even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit.
Yoder tutors us to rebuke/resist our tormenting thoughts/voices and speak out loud (or under our breath), "Satan and you demons, 'I rebuke you in the name of Jesus. I will not accept these thoughts/voices.'" Then continue to quote/read a relevant scripture out loud (or under your breath). In addition, it is vital to memorize out loud a verse or more each week. One can use Dr Brown's prayers/recommendations without adhering to her/Nee's hypothesis/theory as to the use/role of the human spirit in paranormal activity.
Yoder, Dr Rebecca Brown - Prepare for War - www.harvestwarriors.com
Chapter 15 The Double Minded Man shares that Satan tricks us by injecting thoughts into our minds beginning with the word "I". For instance, if on Monday we accept Jesus as our savior/healer/baptizer, but on Thursday we ask again to be saved/healed/baptized, we may have been listening to/believing Satan's lies and not standing on/quoting out loud the facts of scripture that Jesus died "once" to save us; thus, we are saved the moment we ask.
Chapter 17 Deliverance shares that it is best if we deliver ourselves from voices/visions/demons, rather relying on others. Then we will have the confidence and wisdom of how to ward them off when they attempt to renter.
One of the tools to success is to read scripture aloud, especially Revelations 18-22.
If we encounter mind, body, or voice problems we are to immediately rebuke the voices/visions/apparitions/demons and command them to leave at once, in the name of Jesus. Passivity is dangerous! We are always to test the voices/visions/apparitions/demons by asking, "Did Jesus Christ come in the flesh?"
Any reply other than, "Yes", means the problem is from hell. Having done that, we are not to carry on a conversation with any evil spirit/extraterrestrial/apparition/deceased soul, because talking opens up a door for trouble/terror/demonization/ nightmares.

(edited) PRAYER to CONTROL THOUGHT LIFE or TORMENTING THOUGHTS
"Pray something like this: FATHER in Jesus' name:
'I 1st bind Satan, then the ruler spirit(s) and all spirits not of the Holy Spirit ministering tormenting thoughts to me (or person's name) or harassing me.
I loose myself, gag them, break their powers and cast their works down as vain thoughts and imaginations.
I take them into captivity, bind, loose, speak a spiritual Jericho march around, uproot, plead the Precious Blood against curse and destroy at their roots and cast down each and every negative word, negative thoughts, fears, doubts, worries, anxieties, preoccupations, all demonic thoughts or threats, demonic mental locutions, statements or ideations, and all demonic psychic attacks, psychic operations, or psychic assignments this day, any day past, or any day to come along with all acts of evil or witchcraft spoken over, formed against, or directed at me by others...all in Christ Jesus’ Name.
I decree that they shall never manifest nor come to pass and are cursed and destroyed at their roots and rendered of no effect this day, from every day past, and every day to come, to and through any individual, adversary, organization, or would-be adversary in any way, manner, or form.'
'Your Word says, that no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and that includes seed. Your Word says it, Father. That settles it. I believe it. I receive it.'
For a simple, non-repetitive or infrequent negative thought or demonic mental locution, it may be sufficient simply to rebuke it in the Name of Christ Jesus by speaking aloud:
'I rebuke that (wrong/unholy/uninvited) thought. I do not receive it. I stand and resist it.
I bind and loose it (from me). I cast it down as a vain thought and imagination, and curse and destroy it at its roots.'"

Anything that is condemning is from me, my spiritual enemy and/or old records being replayed in my mind from my past (unhealthy parenting/teaching/employer/mate/etc.)
Dawna De Silva: "Spiritual Atmospheres" Nightmares - "Around the age of 40, she started having nightmares.
These night visions were so vivid and demonic that they forced her to cry out in her sleep...
During these encounters, demons weighed her down and tried to keep her from waking...
One day, she visited the nearby park for fresh air. While jogging, a stranger’s dog broke loose from its leash and chased her...When the owners caught up to take hold of their dog, they were amazed. They had never seen their dog act like that before. Julie returned home and wondered if it were possible the neighbor’s dog had picked up her own, partnering with fear. If so, she realized she was actually handing over power to the enemy. She called a friend who encouraged her to take authority over her home and dream life...Julie blasted worship music and recited Psalms all throughout the house. She anointed each doorway with oil and even went up to the attic to release peace. Following these acts, her fears shifted and the atmosphere over her mind and home changed. From that day on, the nightmares stopped...
Some people believe that ungodly atmospheres are the same thing as demonic spirits. While I do believe demonic atmospheres are presided over by the demonic realm, I do not believe the atmospheres themselves are actual demons. Atmospheres, for me, are the prevailing spiritual realities created by man’s partnership with the entities residing in the spiritual realm. As the messages these spiritual beings emit - are agreed upon and partnered with, the resulting atmosphere expands. Therefore, I see atmospheres, both godly and ungodly, as cyclical partnerings between broadcasts from the spirit realm and man’s participation with them. Just as Julie’s partnership with fear gave it increasing power, demonic strongholds grow as communities digress from God’s Word and embrace lifestyles of sin. As more people partner with the messages that are announced, the demonic influence grows. This cycle continues until either repentance is made, truth is revealed, or God intervenes. The church is designed to operate as bringers of the Kingdom of God and to release hope, peace, and prosperity into these communities where demons work to release the opposite...
When evil spirits gain a place of power over a region, they broadcast lies over the entire area, much like a radio station. We have the capacity to either 'tune in' to these channels or to switch them off. Part of our responsibility in tuning out the enemy’s voice is for us to switch the channel we are listening to that is emitting a sinful broadcast. But doing so does not actually shut off its transmissions into the airwaves. We need to release God’s opposing (opposite) messages into the airwaves to actually stop these transmissions."
Dawna De Silva: "A Battle Cry to Spiritual Warfare!" @ https://www.destinyimage.com/blogs/news?page=4 [We do have authority to dismiss evil, in Jesus' name.] "My oldest son, Cory, stood in the living room, shocked...
The demon 1st appeared...stood silent and watching. Cory backed away and asked Holy Spirit what was going on. 'This is a demon that represents an assignment against you, the Holy Spirit said. Its job is to make sure you do not fulfill your destiny'...Filled with the Holy Spirit, Cory took stock of the phantom and strode up like a gunslinger out of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. He declared, 'Get out in Jesus’ name.' Without lingering, the spirit vanished. My son looked about the room, in awe of his own spiritual authority."

great blog & video series -
by acknowledging the worries and struggles that have been filling your mind.
Take a mental inventory of those swirling thoughts by writing them down. Then go
over them one by one and notice if there is a pattern to them over the next few
Ask Jesus to guide you in this process as you give these thoughts to Him. Allow Him to gently guide you to the next step of recovering what has been stolen from you. Hope and truth. Once you begin to take your thoughts captive the real work begins. Jesus can start giving you truth and you can start relying on that as you navigate your heart and search it for where it has gone astray. You can see the places in your life where the lies began to take hold and take root, giving every circumstance over to Jesus. Jesus can reestablish and rehabilitate your heart and mind to reconcile it back to Himself. We only need to be willing.”
Goddard, Neville - http://www.thepowerofawareness.org/ - Extremely important, except be reminded to align one's thoughts with God's heart and words in scripture, and then to give Him ALL the credit for each victory. Do NOT even take 1% credit. Basic premise is when lying on bed before sleep to imagine/visualize self/other as well or having desire, to the extent one can FEEL/experience his wish as being true. Do this daily/ consistently, until the dream becomes a reality. Then give God the giver high praises. [Final chapter is blasphemy/heresy/arrogance/delusion, and clarifies the mistake author (&/or Satan) is attempting to perpetrate upon readers. The I AM is Father/Son/Holy-Spirit: Trinity, and is not each of us, a created spirit who is given a soul and body at arrival in the womb.] Chapter Twenty One + Chapter Twenty Two + Chapter Twenty Three seem to be only viable/safe reading in book, which is otherwise occult.

35034-why-this-common-misunderstanding-of-demons-is-so-dangerous (edited) - "Demons are more attracted by what you think than what you do. The deeper truth is that knowing who you are in Christ determines (facilitates) how you think. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know what He thinks about you...
If you know what God has to say about you, then the lies of the enemy seem silly. This is the majority of what you need to know about dealing with demons...Whatever the reason, the demon was attracted to distress. not because he wanted to tempt one to commit some sin, but because he wanted to use that moment as an opportunity for accusation. The demonic tries to hold our mistakes in the air as proof that we have failed as children of God. It's ironic, since Jesus came and died, so our inadequacies would no longer be capable of keeping us apart from Him. I think that's why He tells us in 1 Corinthians 14:1 to pursue (His) prophecy (concerning us). If you know what (Father) God has to say (brag/forecast)about you (His kid), it doesn't matter what anyone or anything else has to say."

A 5 STEP PROCESS TO BOOST YOUR NATURAL IMMUNITY
- 6/1999 -
Practice positive thinking, positive visualization and positive imagery.
Realize that the little voice in the back of your head, your internal dialogue, your ego, is not who you really are.
When you see a negative thought pass by your mind, you say, "No, I don't want to think that way".
The heart of social relationships is a clear knowledge of self-esteem, and knowing your connection to God.
Spirituality is a devout connection to God, sincere love, and heartfelt purpose in life.
It has a powerful effect on health and longevity."

The Supernatural @ VCMI, Suitland, MD - Demons can not read but
can plant evil thoughts into peoples' (and animals') minds.
Demons also mark trespassers
(not protected with the blood of Jesus) with (fluorescent/spiritually visible)
green vomit on victims who enter their territory/atmosphere via
unholy/unhealthy movies/media/videos/ communications/locations. When
aware of such mistakes, we need to immediately repent in order for this green
cesspool/slime to be removed. In heaven R rating represents "rotten". Church
alters are mainly for gentiles who come for salvation and less for (Swiss
cheese/leaky/fully of holes) Christians who continually leak due to bad
habits/lifestyles. (This is the season, effective Easter 2012, for
Christians with souls clogged up with filth, to get their lives in order and
stop clogging up the confessionals.)
Kat Kerr - What Satan Knows - http://www.christianforums.com/
Dec 23, 2012 - "Satan doesn't know anything except the present. Satan cannot read your mind, cannot read your thoughts. All he knows is what comes out of you. He can put thoughts into your mind, which he does a lot. He doesn't know they're having any affect on you unless you act on them. They cannot tell the future. The only thing he knows is what's in the Word of God. If he really knew the future, he would have given up a long time ago, because he would understand what his end is, but he still doesn't know your future, (only) God knows everything."
LORD remind me to “bring all thoughts into captivity to Christ Jesus” before I go to sleep! - 8/13/2014 - Dr. Caroline Leaf - GREAT SLEEP = GREAT BRAIN - "If you rehearse problems as negative before you go to sleep, this will affect your rest and you will lose out on all these amazing benefits. It is thus really important as you go to sleep to 'bring all thoughts into captivity to Christ Jesus' (2 Corinthians 10:5-7) so Holy Spirit can work in your mind to produce wisdom and peace, and give you answers and solutions. We have to do our part by inviting (and allowing) Holy Spirit to do His part."
Secular/Occult autobiography -"People like Longden who admit to hearing
inner voices can generally expect 2 outcomes:
a diagnosis of insanity, and potent medication. But a group of psychiatrists and psychologists believe it’s time we reconsidered labels such as schizophrenia and the drugs used as treatment. In fact, they believe we should get people to listen to, and actually engage with, the voices inside their heads."
(CAUTION: There is a huge difference between self-talk and dialogue with demons.)
"Like most multiple-voice hearers, Longden says one voice was dominant. 'He was demonic, and had a visual manifestation of a huge grotesque figure swathed in black. His threats were graphic and violent. The other voices, which were less clear, would back him up'...
May says negative voices can be turned into a positive experience. 'If a voice is telling someone to kill themselves, that could be signifying rage. So the voice-hearer could say, ‘Thanks for flagging this up. I’m not going to take you literally, but you’ve shown me there are things I need to change about me.'” How to Live with Voice Hearing - http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-to-live-with-voice-hearing/ -

What to Do With Your Pesky, Wayward
of having entertained a (wrong/suicidal/stupid/evil/selfish/weird) notion is
frightening. I even feel guilty about it, as though having the thought
occur indicates some misalignment of my brain. In reality, the hour was
extremely early. I was tired and sleepy. But that's no excuse. I say to
myself that I'm not responsible for that completely dumb thought. After all, I
did reject it. I would never knowingly drive through a flooded street, much less
an unfamiliar unpaved area like that. But it occurred to me. As though
that means I wanted to do it. I'm rejecting that guilt. The point is: Everyone
errant thoughts from time to time. If we handle them well and send
them on their way,
in no way should we feel shame or guilt.
Martin Luther said, 'You cannot keep the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building nests in your hair': proverbs/26-2.htm You thought that line was original with your grandma…
Thoughts of all kinds flit through our minds. We reject the bad ones and go forward. But we should not feel guilty that they appeared, if only momentarily. [Be reminded: Thoughts have many sources including self/parenting/God/Satan]
No one should ever rationalize that 'Well, it was just a thought, and thoughts are harmless.' They are not harmless. The thought is the preparation for the act. Every wrong deed begins with a wrong thought. Seriously wrong deeds are almost always preceded by a full-scale onslaught of impure thinking, planning and daydreaming. A famous crime-fighter once said, 'No criminal ever commits a crime without first justifying it in his mind.'"

ANT #1: All or Nothing Thinking.
ANT #2: Always Thinking - (continual use of words like always, never, everyone, every time, no one and everything)
ANT #3: (RED ANT) Here is an example of categorizing the ANTs by types.
Focusing only on the negative.
ANT #4: (RED ANT) Another Red Ant is called Fortune-telling.
This is where we believe we are predicting the outcome of our fate and the outcome is always the worst possible situation.
ANT #5: (RED ANT) This next type of Red Ant is called Mind Reading.
ANT #6: Thinking with your feelings...negative pattern
ANT #7: Guilt Beatings.
ANT #8: Labeling. In this case a person places a label on another person or even on themselves and begins to believe in the label.
ANT #9: (THE MOST POISONOUS RED ANT) Blame. Dr. Amen states this as the most poisonous of the red ants
because once you neglect to take responsibility or your actions, you are now powerless. If you did something and then blamed someone else, you are powerless to the overall outcome of the situation now. You, ironically, not the person you blame, become the true victim.

"Thought Control - Subliminal words in the correct electromagnetic-field that expresses human consciousness, attuned to the human brain, can enter our minds at a subconscious level. Our brain activity patterns can apparently be measured and stored on computer by super-computers. If a victim needs subliminal-thoughts implanted, all that is necessary is to capture, save on computer, and target the person's brainwave pattern to send them such low frequency subliminal-messages that they actually think it is their own thoughts [confirmed by Al Bielek and Preston Nichols with the Montauk Project in Long Island]. The researcher Majix says our brains are so sensitive that they are like liquid-crystal in response to the magnetic component of the earth...
Tesla-waves could be used to manipulate the mind into hearing voices, overriding and implanting thoughts into the mind, and reading the thoughts, as well as developing eye-implants...
Vaccine Implants - Implants are now smaller than a hair's width and are injected with vaccine and flu shots. Millions (may) have had this done unknowingly. These 'biochips' circulate in the bloodstream and lodge in the brain, enabling the victims to hear 'voices' via the implant," etc.

"The most influential and frequent voice you hear is your inner-voice.
It can work in your favor or against you, depending on what you listen to and act upon.” per Maddy Malhotra "In accordance with popular urban legend, talking to yourself is supposedly the 1st tell-tale sign of impending insanity.
If this were true, most of us would have been declared clinically insane by the time we turned 5, as this is the age by which the majority of people begin engaging in out loud, self-directed speech...talking to yourself, or ‘private speech,’ is a biological mechanism that better enables humans to siphon off stress, solve problems, reason through difficult decisions, and concentrate with greater accuracy...Far from making you crazy, talking to yourself in the 3rd person actually makes you smarter, more imaginative, and more confident.
This is because using your name removes you from all of the emotional intensity
that you subconsciously associate with yourself in the 1st person ‘I.’
Speaking in the 3rd person lights up the brain’s cerebral cortex, which is the outer
layer of neural tissue linked to memory, perception, awareness, thought, language, and consciousness.
The 1st person ‘I,’ on the other hand, lights up the brain’s 2 amygdalae, which are located in the temporal lobes and associated with emotional reactions, anxiety, aggression, and fear. In short, none of the nouns you want to be cognizant of when talking yourself through a stressful situation...the psychological distance between you and your friends’ situations makes it easier for you to think clearly and lucidly.
Self-advice delivered the through the 1st person ‘I,’ however, puts you in dangerously close proximity to your inherently egocentric self of sense (which isn’t your fault, we swear) and thus hinders your ability to maximize your competency potential." @ https://www.psychologytoday.com/

Book concentrates on DIDs/multiple personalities/MPDs -
Alternative Help for Psychiatric and Brain Problems. Dr Scott Peck and others think that DID/MPDs when disqualified by DSM-4 may be labeled as obsessed/possessed by demons. DELIVERANCE BOOKS Stout is not of this opinion. However she has had some success in her patients recognizing and reducing some of their alters (other personalities used for coping with trauma)...One of the methods she uses is hypnosis (which is considered dangerous/evil/spiritually harmful by most Christians). Otherwise, her success/compassion/availability to her clients is a blessing. The problem arises if there becomes a co-dependency, especially a life long one. Good therapy should result is less and less dependency on the pastor/doctor and more and more dependency on self/God + family/friends/associates; more autonomy/maturity/self-sufficiency...A 2nd concern is that the client may not avail himself of spiritual mentoring and/or exorcism, if that is a valid spiritual need. The book is a good window into the world view of the patient, both for the family and for the patient.
It exposes some of the voices, alters, thoughts and inner world of oneself, or the world of the one who we love.

"Paul's exhortation to Timothy: God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Tim. 1:7, NKJV). Then he went on to explain, 'Fear is a spirit.
Some of you are thinking you are going insane, but you are just listening to the spirit of insanity. Not all your thoughts are your own. Evil spirits talk to you by giving you their thoughts'...Immediately I heard a voice inside my spirit say, 'You have been listening to the spirit of insanity and the spirit of fear. Tell them to leave you right now.'
Lying on my back on the living room floor, I said in a quiet but confident voice,
'You, spirit of fear, and you, spirit of insanity, get off me right now in Jesus' name.'

Brown, Tom -
Brain Washed - editorial -
"All thoughts come
from one of 3 sources: God, the 5 senses, or the devil. God’s thoughts are
recorded in the Bible. When you think (read/meditate/memorize/study) on that
book, then your thoughts come from God. This is the only sure way of knowing
whether the information you have received is truthful. 'Let God be true, and
every man a liar.'
An...example of the 5 senses contradicting God’s Word is in the area of sickness and health. You may have a debilitating sickness, and therefore, believe that it is permanent. God’s Word tells you differently. Not only does God’s Word tell you that you can be healed, but from God’s perspective, He does not even see you sick. He sees you well.
The Bible says that you are already healed by the stripes of Jesus (1 Pet. 2:24).
You may wonder how you can believe this when your 5 senses tell you differently.
This is faith. 'We live by faith, not by sight.' (2 Cor. 5:7). Sight is one of the 5 senses. Sight represents (one of) the senses. You cannot live by faith and go by the senses at the same time. You must choose either faith or sight...
'Revelation knowledge'...is knowledge that is supernaturally revealed to you by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit takes the Scriptures that He inspired and then reveals them to you.
You will receive (insight/spiritual) knowledge that your senses may not agree is true.
But your senses cannot be trusted in spiritual matters. God’s Word can be trusted."
[This insider knowledge (inner knowing/intuition) may contradict doctor's dire predictions, textbooks, and/or ominous forecasts, but it will never contract God's Word in Scripture.
Just like the invisible Holy Spirit, the invisible evil spirit can plant thoughts in our minds. Any thought which contradicts God's sweet holy thoughts must be rejected.]
Any part of the mind which is not renewed (by continual/constant/daily/frequent exposure to God's thoughts in Scripture) will become fertile ground for Satan to plant his satanic thoughts. Those areas are the battleground for Satan. He will fight you there.
And you don’t stand a chance against him, until you renew that part of your mind.
You will not be prepared to battle Satan with a mind that is not renewed. The renewed mind has a "NO TRESSPASSING" sign for Satan. He can’t trespass on a renewed mind. Conversely, a mind which is not renewed becomes an open door for the devil." (Minds that have trouble reading, memorizing, studying, concentrating, praying, can put on tapes, cassettes, CDs, DVDs, etc to listen to the Bible that way.)

Gimenez, Anne - 11/25/2007 TV broadcast - www.pastoranne.org - There is a spirit of confusion that gives us voices/a mixture of ideas/thoughts. Lack of God's spiritual knowledge/ discernment will allow the spiritual enemy of God
to take advantage of us. We need to sever the lies/demonic leeches in our mind. We must never tolerate a fib or a half truth that contradicts Scripture. Rather we must resist the devil according to James 4:7, so evil deceit/double-mindedness will flee. (We can enlist the help of the Holy Spirit and His angels. One excellent weapon is to read Scripture out loud, the more the better.)
DAVID: Yes. If you're watching right now, I just say, God, bring your Glory, lift your hands and just close your eyes, and just receive this. Let the presence of God's Glory permeate your room, your car, your television, wherever you are, let it just invade right now...Open heavens, the Glory to invade your life right now in Yeshua's name...Every cell of your body, your DNA, your bones, your marrow, let it just explode inside of you, the Glory cloud cover you right now in Yeshua's name.
SID: David, I have many friends that see doom and gloom, and destruction, and the economy falling apart, and bombs, and terrorism, and all these awful things. Then I have other friends that say, I may have seen the greatest awakening the world has ever seen. How can prophets of God have such two different views?
DAVID: It's like, as for me and my house, we're going to serve the Lord. Egypt was in the worst shaking ever. But God's people within Egypt got out, transferred the wealth, the Glory cloud, signs and wonders. So there are things coming on the earth, but it's perspective. What perspective are you looking at, positively or negatively? You do things in battle, a lot of people get saved. So for evangelists it's going to be great. But the Lord showed me, it's like when Elisha and the servant were stranded by the Syrian army...In the natural we can see like in America there's some really bad things being planned.
But are you looking just at that or are you looking at 3rd Heaven (holy angel) chatter, 2nd Heaven (denomic) chatter. As you look at the enemy's war room you know what the enemy is planning, you can know all the details and get so engrossed in that and not go higher in the prophetic 3rd Heaven chatter, where you're actually in God's war room and he goes, yes, the enemy is planning this, but here's how I'm going to counteract it...Here's how I'm going to bless you. Here's how I'm going to even use that to bring more people to salvation. So yeah, the shakings are coming, but we're not supposed to be in fear if we're right with God and God will supernaturally use us and protect us.
SID: That explains it. Because I believe these people are hearing the chatter from the 2nd Heaven (Satan's headquarters), but I'm not. All I am hearing is awakening, glory, miracles, creative miracles. I want you to listen a lot to the 3rd Heaven like I am.
Holliday, Pat - 1/4/2008 - Below is
a site to check out for those for whom counseling, medications, healing prayers
and deliverance prayers have failed.
"Dr. Holliday says, 'The (severe) Schizophrenic (sometimes) lives in a world of
fantasy. They hear voices inside of their heads. WHO are these voices? Are they
fictitious? Do they come from their own thoughts? Do they come from their
internal storage of memories?
Do they come from implanted memories by mind controllers? Do they come from a split mind that simply continues to be able think and speak? Are they coming from the supernatural realm? Do they come from a demonic invasion of the mind? The Bible shows that demons are spirit beings and real. The demon's primary objective is to rob, kill, and destroy causing loss of peace and harmony. (Jn. 10:10)." (Sometimes in extreme cases, the combination of all of the above is in play, especially in the military.)
Paul Hegstrom shares how the Limbic system's thalmus
only recognizes/believes/obeys your own voice. Beware what you speak! When Paul
became teachable, God revealed how to rewire the brain. One significant
method is to read the Bible out LOUD - for a minimum of 21 days.
Typically for 3 years to effectively reprogram/rewire the brain - in any one

Hormann, Dr Aiko - referred to in editorial -
Lord, Come and Heal Me: The Power of Thoughts / Dr.
Aiko Hormann Ministries!
Aiko Hormann says that when she prays for people concerning the healing
of memories and emotions. She also includes in her prayer the physical aspect.
She identifies the exact name of the part of the brain that stores memories, and
that the file in the brain that stores the old memory would be healed
and that the trauma and emotions attached to the memory would be
disconnected from the file. (and replaced/reconnected/aligned with
It doesn't mean a person necessarily forgets what happened, but that the
(negative) emotional and psychological responses that are triggered from
memories are no longer there.
Dr. Aiko Hormann said that she once ministered to a woman
who had 4 ongoing
issues that she had been battling for years.
1st, the woman ALWAYS felt guilt about everything, even when good things happened.
2nd, she battled with fear.
3rd, she struggled with severe anxiety.
4th, whenever her husband would show her affection, even non-sexual, she would jump out of her skin. The marriage suffered...The 1st thing Dr. Aiko Hormann did was to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the ROOT of the problem. By a word of knowledge (1 Cor 12:7-11), the Holy Ghost revealed to Dr. Aiko Hormann that the woman had been sexually violated as a child. The woman recalled that indeed she had been molested by an uncle. When the root of the issue was revealed,
then Dr. Aiko Hormann also prayed for physical healing of the brain where the memory and emotional responses was stored. The woman had to release any unforgiveness in order to unclog her soul. The Lord completely healed this woman, and she was set free from all 4 symptoms. Her marriage was healed too."
Howell, Rees - http://refinedinthefire.wordpress.com/2008/02/23/more-on-rees-howells/ - "When God has spoken, and we are certain it is His voice we have been hearing. When doubtful thoughts later assault us; this is not necessarily our (human) doubt. It is (can be) the enemy attacking. The point is not to give in and not to agree with the (later) doubtful (assaulting/badgering) thoughts." (God's thoughts typically bring peace, whereas the enemy's thoughts bring conflict/distress.)
Hutch, Larry - 3/13/2017 @ https://www.larryhuchministries.com/tv_broadcast - Spending time in the secret place is praying under the Jewish tallit/prayer-shawl where Satan's injected thoughts/whispers are blocked/disallowed, preventing double-mindedness.
Institute of Christian Growth commentary on the life of Dr. Kenneth McAll, Catholic psychiatrist, by Dr. William P Wilson in 2002 - http://www.instchristiangrowth.org/Kenneth%20McAll.htm - Wilson mentions that McAll heard and saw Jesus plus treated those with hallucinations by having healing masses, which often cured the patient. He discusses "eidetic images" common in psychiatric hallucinations and Christian visions.
Joshua, Prophet Temitope Balogun (T.B.) - SCOAN - The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, 1 Segun-Irefin Street, Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, Nigeria http://www.scoan.org + http://thetbjoshuafanclub.wordpress.com/2009/06/09/tb-joshua-i-lived-a-rejected-and-isolated-life/ - "People will now begin to wonder if it was God or Satan talking. For instance, if they hear, ‘Come’, they will be wondering if it is the voice of God or Satan because they cannot recognize the voice again. Because the visions are no longer clear, they begin to blaspheme and say all sorts of things. They will now rely on what they read in the newspapers. But whatever you read in the newspaper, as a Christian, you are supposed to examine it in the light of God’s work and that’s the only way we can get the true picture. Feeling is not faith, faith is not feeling. Feelings are influenced by what we hear, what we see and what others tell us."

Satan cannot read our thoughts, but he can see the degree of God's light shining in us.
Kirkwood -6/18/2016 http://d3tnb2mam8l2qt.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/IS856Transcript_Kirkwood.pdf (edited)
SID: My guest says we were created to be feared by the devil.
KERRY: I was actually praying one day. The Lord spoke to me, “I have made you to be feared.” I said, “Lord, I don’t want anybody to be afraid of me. I want to have friends.” He said, “No, you don’t understand. I made you to be feared in the Garden...I put enmity between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. I put some-thing inside of you that the devils fears you.” He took me back into realizing when Lucifer was in the Throne Room of Heaven; he was called a covering cherub...the Morning Star. Jesus the Son of God was called the Bride of the Morning Star; he was there in the glory and presence of God. He understood the power of that glory. God has put Himself into us, His own DNA...His glory in us; because of that we have something on the inside that makes the enemy be fearful...He says we’re also wonderfully made.
That word “wonder” means to be full of wonder or inspiration. That means that He’s put something inside of us to where we should explore the greatness, all that God has for us, all that He’s written about us, and is written from the very beginning of time.
KERRY: He (Jesus) said, “The Kingdom of God has experienced violence and the violent take it by force.” So the word “violence” is viazo, which doesn’t mean militant, doesn’t mean violent, it means to crowd out. So He said, “If you’re going to enter into the Kingdom of God then you’re going to invite this king in and when he comes in he’s going to crowd out everything that doesn’t have his touch, his DNA. He’s going to crowd out thoughts, He’s going to crowd out your ideas, He’s going to crowd out your opinions, your cursings. He’s going to set up his rule of thought, His rule of injecting into us. This is how I (God) feel about you.
KERRY: A man had a triple-quadruple bypass...His father [had] had arterial sclerosis; they told him, “This bypass probably won’t last for more than 3-5 years and because your father died of this, this could be fatal to you.” So his mind began to think, this is the way it is in my life. I just assume I’ll die from this. So I talked to him about changing the way that he thinks.
Patient: My body wasn’t made by God to deteriorate.
I already set that (negative) thought in my body and it’s begun to shut down.
KERRY: he began to think, "These arteries are given by God. I bless these arteries. These are good arteries. The blood flows through me." He went back to the doctor who said, “You've got to see this. I’ve heard about this in medical school, but I’ve never seen one personally. Come here. Let me show you.” He showed him on the screen. He said, "This is the bypass I put in surgically, but your body grew a natural bypass around that one and we don’t know what to think about it."
SID: We are created to receive God’s thoughts.
KERRY: Psalm 139 says, “His thoughts towards us are so innumerable that who could count them.” Psalm 40 says something else: “The thoughts of the Lord are continually going towards us.” God is bombarding our spirit with thoughts and we need to pick those up. Once we understand what He’s thinking about us, then whatever somebody else is thinking (negatively) about us, rejection, offenses, whatever, become so miniscule it doesn’t have a place. It’s crowded out because the thoughts of God are stronger...So once we latch on to that and we begin to walk out what he’s thinking about us, not what somebody else’s expectations are, it really brings a whole life of peace and affects us physically. Our body responds to the thoughts of God. He created us; our body responds to the Creator.
KERRY: Psalms 139...(Before the foundation of the world) “I have written all of your DNA in that book.” Just like the Lamb of God that was slain before the foundation of the world, there’s things that happened before this world was in existence.
KERRY: He didn’t create us and say, well that’s bad, that’s not so good, this is mediocre. So the DNA...just doesn’t mean He’s marked down our chromosomes. It means here’s your potentiality. It would be like God prophesying over you a book of prophesy. I call it God’s baby book for me. So he’s written things, and I don’t want to stand before God one day and find out that I hadn’t even gotten out of the introduction and he had chapters and chapters written about me, but because of fear and thoughts that I would fail and thoughts that I’m not worth it, not well in my own thinking, then I wouldn’t get beyond that introduction of what God says.
SID: Tell me about the principle of reset....1st of all, tell me what a stronghold is.
KERRY: The Bible says, “Pulling down every stronghold and cast it down that exalts itself above the knowledge of God,” the word “stronghold” is noema, which is the word for thoughts. So if you have a picture like of a fortress, he said that we have created this fortress, this stronghold out of thoughts: No one likes me, no one cares about me, no one has ever loved me and so I’m not worth anything, and as I think so I am. So now I’ve built this stronghold and so nothing can get in and nothing can get out. People become loners... introverts.
SID: That’s not how God made you, but that’s what the world and the devil has made you. It’s time for you to come out of that shell and be fearfully and wonderfully made. So you talk about reset.
KERRY: You can do something for 21 days; you can just detoxify your body and detoxify spiritually as well. So for 21 days, if you would just make a journal of all of the thoughts I have that are negative against someone else or against myself, and so on, and just make a note of that. Then I have some other thoughts that the Bible says about me that are going to be replacement therapy. I’m going to reject this (negative) thought and I’m going to (place) replace (with) this one on top of that. The Bible said, when the enemy comes in, comma, like a flood...God wants to flood us with (His/God) thoughts, wants to flood our mind...Jeremiah 29 says, “I have thoughts for you, not of calamity, but of welfare, of a hope and a future.” I just need to click onto what God is saying and replace that, and for 21 days, continually going over (rehearsing) what God says about me.
KERRY: The Bible says that we take every thought captive, and that word “captive” means at the point of a spear, like an invasion, and Paul says, “Do not give the devil any ground” or geography. So literally, don’t let him come and sit on you. So when I have negative thoughts I literally have to see myself going and saying, you’re trying to invade my territory. I reject that; I don’t meditate on it. I will not give it a 2nd thought and I reject it as something like poison to me.
SID: You get on top of it before the devil can even throw his spear.
KERRY: Well sleep deprivation really starts messing with the mind and when a person doesn’t get good rest then we start having paranoia. We start believing things that’s not real. It’s much easier for the enemy to come and plant inaccurate thoughts and ideas.
KERRY: Psalm 16 says, “While we’re asleep the Lord communes with us.”
KERRY: I see in a lot of places where there’s just sleep issues there. Also when people lay down at night (often) their mind is racing and running; they’re replanting the thoughts of the day.
SID: I would like you to pray whatever God shows you, but especially people that are paranoid and feel rejection, and sleep deprivation.
KERRY: All of you that are dealing with sleep apnea or that sense at night, that you just can’t rest at night, then I’m going to pray right now that when you lay down to sleep that you can have the promise or what the Word of God says, “He gives his beloved sleep.” Sleep is gift from God, but you have to receive it. Some dread the evening...Begin to consider and think: Jesus loves me with an abandoned love. He wants to come to me in my sleep and reset some things. He wants to bring me an upgrade. It’s like your cell phone, while you’re sleeping you’re going to be (recharged and) upgraded. So let’s pray right now. PRAYER: Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, You’ve given us the right and the gift to receive sleep and to be recuperated every morning. You say Your mercies are new every morning. I pray that the mornings become fully alive, that when they (we) lay down at night to sleep they’ll (we will) not have torment, they’ll (we will) not have nightmares.
You even give dreams to those that You want to say things to. We break this cycle of sleep deprivation. I speak over you right now that you will be filled with peace and light-heartedness when you lay down tonight (nightly) in Jesus’ name.
Right now, you that fear the future, what’s going to happen...Holy Spirit is saying right to you, that your hope and future is not in what man does or what happens to the economy, but that your hope and future lies in God’s gift to you and His eternal reward for you...So right now in Jesus’ name I stand against that fear in your life and sleeplessness.

Meyer, Joyce - 6/23/2009 - Spiritual Health - Part 2 from series Healthy Living - Spirit, Soul, Body
Last part of TV broadcast reminds us that Satan speaks to us, just as he did speak to Adam and Eve in the garden.
On internet broadcast notes http://www.joycemeyer.org/jmmweb/broadcast/programs/062409/notes.pdf
section How Is Your Mental Health? points out that excessive reasoning can be a mental tormenter/confuser/sabotager
because the Holy Spirit speaks to the human spirit, rather than the mind.
Joyce cites the following insights.
I Corinthians: Chapter 14 – God is not the author of confusion.
Proverbs 3:5-8 Confusion can be caused by excessive reasoning. Excessive reasoning can contribute to emotional problems, headaches and nervous tension.
Mark 8:13-17 – Excessive reasoning can hinder discernment.
I Corinthians 2:14-16 – The spiritual man investigates (and discerns) everything with the mind of the spirit –
not the mind of the flesh (the physical brain or the human intellect/soul).
Romans 8:5-6 One can think a thing to death! Additionally, negative feelings buried alive never die.
James 1:21-22 – Excessive reasoning can cause disobedience and deception. What we know in our spirit can be quickly clouded by reasoning.
Section Are You Emotionally Healthy? Joyce reminds us that per Isaiah 61:1-8
Jesus can heal us everywhere we hurt.
Section Broken Or Damaged Personality recognizes that we all have (mental/emotional/psychiatric) parts of us that have been, like Humpty Dumpty, broken (shattered, fragmented, not functioning, violated, overwhelmed, subdued, unable to continue).
John 6:12 – Gather the fragments that nothing be wasted. Joyce says that we don’t need to waste our pain.
1/2009 Regions of Captivity Deliverance Conference DVD shares how to rescue and restore broken soul fragments. www.voiceofthelight.com - Since damaged minds don’t think right, they need to become familiar with and internalize God's thoughts.
II Corinthians 10:4-5 – Learn truth and bring every thought captive unto the obedience of Jesus Christ. Truth supersedes fact. Any fact that contradicts what God thinks and says must be rejected/refused/repented of and traded for God's thoughts/love/reality found in scripture.
Ephesians 3:17-21 – Feeling unloved? Then, stop saying what you feel and begin to continually say what God says. Feel angry, bitter, resentful or unforgiving? One can never be emotionally healthy unless he forgives in the same exact manner that Jesus forgives us, unconditionally and fully.
Mark 11:24-26 – God says if we want our prayers answered, we must forgive.
Section Jesus Is Our Healer and Yet a Large Percentage of Christians Are Sick!
Isaiah 53:5 – Our being made whole includes physical healing.
Psalm 103:1-3 – God both forgives sin and heals diseases.
Jesus made healing of our body, mind, and spirit available right NOW, not tomorrow, not when we die, not when the rapture comes...One final thought. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and what we eat we become. Much obesity and much disease (or the degree of the disease) is often our failure and unwillingness to heed dietary self discipline. Diabetes is one common example. Liver disease is another.
Likewise, lack of adequate regular exercise is another frequent cause of poor health, often self inflicted.

Moore, Keith - 2/27/2009 -
The unregenerate human nature, even the born again person who is not baptized in
the Holy Spirit, plus the Holy Spirit filled human being -
will have while living in this earthly body pangs/temptations of the
flesh/desires that, if catered to, could lead him/her into harm/danger/evil.
The illustration is given that if we feed the stray cat (thought/lust), it will become an in-law/addiction/parasite. Our choice.

Joni – Occult #9 – Dr. James Marocco (J784) 2011
Satan uses our secret-sins/evil-thoughts as would a puppeteer manipulate a puppet, when we entertain/hide them rather than expose/reject/confess/repent of them to oneself/one safe person/God. Evil/negative/wrong thoughts are bricks/substance which build a structure to house the devil/demons (&/or legalize/ fuel/trigger/empower self-sabotage &/or disease). 2nd, recognize that some ungodly/unhealthy/unnatural thoughts are human and transferred/projected/not-our-own and not demonic, until we dance-with/adopt them; [avoid ungodly places & people when you have a choice (unless you are ministering); on a regular basis, break off from you, in the name of Jesus, all contamination that has tried to attach itself to you. A good place to do this is in the shower. Then sing to God there; replace the evil with worship.]
Prince, Joseph -
Joseph reminds us that our spiritual enemy presents us his evil (demonic) thoughts which often include the word "I" as a lie, a form of deceit/deception/trickery/treachery. He also will tell us to do commit evil acts by saying such things as "Jump" off this cliff (to commit suicide). (It is important to begin to monitor/discern the source our thoughts.)

"This is the day (generation/time) of DECEIVING SPIRITS: a day to 'believe NOT every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God.' (1 John 4:1). 1 Corinthians 2:15 also declares, 'But he that is spirit-ual judgeth all things.' There is a new subtlety in the way Satan comes in on forbidden ground deceiving many by using the same 'wavelength' on which they are in the habit of hearing from God. He is the arch deceiver and cunning.
If one is not aware, we will receive what he says as from the Lord, and no marvel: 'for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.' (2 Cor. 11:14)"
Self Help Tips for Those Who Hear Voices www.alternativementalhealth.com/articles/selfhelp.htm
Saint Antony - http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/basis/VITA-ANTONY.html - "43. 'For your fearlessness against them (demons) hold this sure sign: Whenever there is any apparition (vision/appearing and disappearing of silent and/or speaking spiritual entities before one's presence), be not prostrate with fear, but whatsoever it be, first boldly ask, (In the name of Jesus Christ,) 'Who art thou? And from whence comest thou?' And if it should be a vision of holy ones they will assure you, and change your fear into joy. But if the vision should be from the devil, immediately it becomes feeble, beholding your firm purpose of mind. For merely to ask, (In the name of Jesus Christ,) Who art thou ? and whence comest thou? is a proof of coolness (lack of intimidation/resolve/spiritual muscle/willingness to test each spirit, according to the requirement of scripture). By thus asking, the son of Nun learned who his helper was; nor did the enemy escape the questioning of Daniel .'"

Our physical heart can perceive nature/vibes/vibrations/nature/character from
another at a distance of 5 feet
away (which if not understood, can be mistaken for one's own thoughts/ideas/feelings.)
Katie mentions that a person
with soul wounds can have a lot of demonic chatter
(from either one's own
thoughts and/or from evil spirits).
One such web feedback on the issue of demonic chatter is:
Daily soaking in the glory (deliberate focusing on Jesus) can help
eliminate/reverse/reduce this chatter...A tender comment on demonic chatter is as follows.
http://www.swedenborg.org/odb/sermon_detail.cfm?sermonID=3695 - Author refers to the chatter of frogs in a pond, to help us to conceptualize the sound..."Swedenborg was also familiar with these voices. He says that they come from hell.
Truly, at their worst, when they become obsessive and take on a life of their own, we are right to call them 'demonic.' This is reflected in everyday conversation when we refer to what we call our 'inner demons.' The Gospel promises us, however, that when we turn to the Lord in prayer, Jesus comes and says to our inner demons, 'Be quiet! Come out of him.'"
[CONSIDER. Demonic chatter can sometimes include 24/7 religious media bombarding our ears and eyes, NOT allowing us intimacy with the Trinity. Between Adam and Moses, there was NO Old Testament. Could we survive alone in isolation: in prison, on an island, or in the desert, without our: Bible, IPOD, TV, radio, cell phone, whatever.]

Wommack, Andrew - God Wants You Well -
The thoughts that we listen to, entertain, do not reject, revisit in our mind, are the ones that can take root and derail our progress with God. Listen to radio rather than watch TV, as visual media has a greater ability to dethrone one's good intentions. Be quick to turn off any media that contradicts what God says in scripture. "You NEED this medicine, this vaccination, this remedy," per advertisers, is man's point of view.

(Those who readily hear negative/demonic/evil/Satanic thoughts are tuned into the invisible spiritual world. Anyone who tunes into the dark side of the spiritual world has a lifetime opportunity to also tune into the holy. The dark side is always a counterfeit of the holy; it is an absence of the good. The good contains the presence of holiness, glory and the Trinity. The good is so powerful that it intimidates/overcomes/terrorizes/expels/liquidates/exterminates evil.)

Obtrusive Interfering Thoughts
Ideologies/Individuals that do NOT represent the nature of God
Flanagan, Sabina - Secrets of
God - Writings of Hildegard of Bingen -
Very short tastings - English translation from the Latin.
COMMENTARY: God/Jesus/the Holy Spirit does NOT favor one denomination over another, excepting His partiality towards the Jewish religion/race or perhaps the Messianic Jewish religion. His kingdom/ church is a new one that is spiritual (Christian), rather than of the flesh, or a combination of Jewish blood and Christian spirit. Jesus is an Israeli Jew by blood. He is also a Christian by spirit...
Hildegard had many visions of a speaking white light and was approved by the pope to continue with her writings. One example of errors - Hildegard contends that God said that "Catholic" infant baptism is OK; that the baptized infant can later lose its salvation if it does not tow the mark. [Yes, parents can stand in the gap for their children. Yes, parents can dedicate their children to God. One major problem is the word "Catholic" with a capital C. Other churches (denominations) have infant baptism/christening. The Jewish model/roots of the perfect Judeo/Christian church did/does not have a baptism/initiation rite until the age of 12/13/puberty. Salvation typically begins when one chooses for himself Jesus as his Messiah. Most secular schools do not start full time until the age of 5/6 when the child can usually discern between truth and fantasy. We found only 1% of Hildegard's writings to be aligned with the Word of God (scripture) and the heart of God, let alone relevant/useful in this generation. When God speaks, His Word continues to be relevant in every generation. White lights do speak. However, one always needs to test any spirit, according to the requirements of scripture, to determine if their source is good or evil/dangerous/deceitful.]
What Do Satan and his Demons Say about God's Son?
Luke 4:33-36 KJV
Dake - 33In the synagogue there was a man, who had a spirit of an
unclean devil, and cried out with a loud
voice (permitted via his mouth the evil spirit
spokesman to express itself), 34 saying, "Let us
alone; what have we to do with Thee, Thou Jesus of Nazareth? Art Thou come
to destroy us? I know Thee Who Thou art; the Holy One of God.
35Jesus rebuked him, saying, "(Silence.) Hold they peace,
and come out of him." When the devil
had thrown him in the midst, he came out of
him, and hurt him not. 36They were all amazed, and spake among themselves,
saying, "What a word is this. For with authority and power He commandeth
the unclean spirits, and they come
Luke 4:40-41 KJV Dake - 40When the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with diverse diseases brought them unto Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them. 41And devils also came out of many, crying out and saying, "Thou art Christ the Son of God." He rebuking them suffered them not to speak, for they knew that He was Christ.
(Thus holy scripture shows us that evil spirits/demons do speak to our minds and sometimes through our mouths as illustrated above. Scripture also tells us to take every thought captive and bring it into obedience: to line our thoughts us with God's thoughts and to deny all thoughts which do not glorify God.)
Proverbs 23:7 KJV As he thinketh (believes/agrees/feels) in his heart (mind/emotions/attitude), so is he.
Human Nature &/or Satan's Influence
Which came first, negative emotions or negative thoughts? Does it make any difference? For beginners, whatever, contradicts the Word of God and His nature in scripture is to be ignored/rejected by us, regardless of the truth/reality of the medical/psychiatric/scientific evidence; that way we will always vote/act on the side/Word of God; God can always defend us, if we are willing to defend Him and His Word in scripture. God defended Jesus, even though He "appeared" to be permanently defeated and dead on the cross.
3rd Heaven Court Voices that Contest & Overrule 2nd Heaven Evil Voices
Voices In The Courts -
A. The Voice of Blood Genesis 4:8–12 Cain told Abel his brother. It came about when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. 9 Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?”
He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” 10 He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground. 11 “Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 “When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth.”
A.1. The (spoken) testimony of blood is powerful.
A.1.a. The High Priest once a year would go behind the veil and sprinkle blood on the mercy seat. On the testimony of that blood God would render a verdict on the sins of a nation to be rolled back one more year or not.
A.2. Jesus’ Blood (speaks).
A.2.a. Jesus’ blood cries out for forgiveness. As Jesus was being crucified He cried out for forgiveness.
Resulting in salvation. Luke 23:33–34 When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.
34 But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”
A.2.b. Not only did Jesus’ blood provide salvation, it purchased all creation back to God.
A.2.c. Jesus’ blood will not be silent until all that He bought at the cross is legally appropriated and set in place as a reality on the Earth.
A.2.d. It is our job to agree with the testimony of His blood. It is legal testimony in the courtrooms of Heaven for this.
A.3. Blood of Martyrs Revelation 6:9–10 When the Lamb broke the 5th seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained;
10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” (the answer is no, He will not refrain)
A.3.a. The martyrs are crying for the avenging of their blood. This could cause us to believe they are crying for someone to be punished for the spilling of their blood.
A.3.b. What they desire is the reason their blood was spilt to matter. In other words they laid down their lives so that people and nations could be redeemed and they are asking for souls.
A.3.c. The Moravians were a people who were sold out to (zealous for) the Lord. Many of them would sell themselves into slavery, then be placed on slave ships and transported to distant nations. They did this so they might reach unevangelized peoples with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12:11 scripture says their blood is one way Satan is overcome. “They overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb AND because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
B. The Mediator Speaks
B.1. The purpose of a mediator is to bring parties together into a place of agreement. Mediators and mediation is a legal function that is a pre-trial process Hebrews 12:24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant.
C. The Testimony of Just Men Made Perfect
C.1. Witnesses – those who give judicial testimony
C.2. This great cloud of witnesses has a role in the courts of Heaven. They have a voice concerning the purposes for which they laid down their lives.
C.3. The saints of old are still invested in the causes for which they laid down their lives. They are not just cheering from a grandstand but (ALSO) have a voice and a testimony in Heaven’s courts. This is what the term spirits of men made perfect refers to. Hebrews 12:23 to the general assembly and church of the 1st-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, Hebrews 11:39–40 All these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40 because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.
C.4. We can complete that which they started...One example is the salvation of Israel and it becoming a light to the Nations. Would the testimony of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Joel, etc. be useful in presenting a court case for the revelation of Messiah to come?
C.5. Through their testimony judgments can be released from the throne that is instrumental in establishing God’s will on Earth. They have a function as judicial witnesses in the process.
C.5.a. This is NOT praying TO the saints but incorporating their voice into the process. May we learn to use their testimony and flow in agreement with them for God’s purposes in the Earth. (Others such as Kat Kerr remind us that groups such as famiy/national members have a joint spiritual destiny/role/purpose. This idea of me/myself/I/self-sufficiency contradicts the role of Holy Spirit and angels needed to empower/enable any holy endeavor.)
Souza, Katie -

Say PRAYER: Father, I do exactly what the Scripture says. I come boldly before the throne of grace in my time of need. Because of what Jesus has done for me through the cross and the resurrection, Lord, I come boldly.
Father, I’m being accused by my adversary of idolatry in my life and in my bloodline, and the idols are rioting, Lord.
Just like in Acts 19, they will not be quiet. They will not stop shouting in my soul and driving me towards familiar sins.
Lord, I know that Satan is the accuser of the brethren and that 'accuser' means 'to go before a judge and make an accusation'. He’s come before You, Lord, and he’s made accusations against me.
The Bible says, when you go to court, come to terms, come to an agreement quickly with your adversary.
I agree. I repent right now of all idolatry. Lord, forgive me. Forgive me for every time I was obsessed and possessed and lusted after idols and did not turn towards the one true God. I repent for anyone in my bloodline that made anything into an idol—money, houses, possessions, children, family, spouses, food, alcohol, drugs, fame, renown, or any type of thing.
If they made it into a demon god, an idol in their life, I repent and ask Your forgiveness. I know, Lord, as I repent, that the blood of Jesus, according to Hebrews 12, is testifying before Your throne to my innocence, not because of my own goodness or righteousness for my righteousness is as filthy rags, but because I’m under the blood of Christ.
I throw myself at the mercy of the Court, knowing that the testimony from the blood will cause me to have a 'not guilty' verdict according to Colossians 2:14-15. I am free and clear, in Jesus name."
How Do I Hear (recognize/discern) the healing
Voice of God?
God's Voice Scripture
Exodus 19:19 NIV Moses spoke, and the
voice of God answered him.
Exodus 20:21-22 NIV 21The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was. 22Then the Lord said to Moses, "Tell the Israelites this, "You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven."
Numbers 12:6 KJVer He said, "Hear
now My words, 'If there be a prophet among you,
I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision and will speak to him in a dream.'"
Deuteronomy 5:22-29 NIV 22These are the commandments the Lord
proclaimed in a loud voice to our whole assembly there on the mountain from
out of the fire, cloud, and deep darkness; He added nothing more. Then He
wrote them on 2 stone tablets and gave them to me (Moses).
23When you heard the voice out of the darkness, while the mountain was ablaze with fire, all the leading men of your tribes and your elders came to me. 24You said, "The Lord our God has shown us His glory and His majesty; we have heard His voice from the fire. Today we have seen that a man can live, even if God speaks with him. 25But now, why should we die? This great fire will consume us and we will die if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer; 26for what mortal man has ever heard the voice of the living God speaking out of fire, as we have, and survived? 27Go near and listen to all that the Lord our God says. Then tell us whatever the Lord our God tells you. We will listen and obey."
28The Lord heard you when you spoke to me and the Lord said to me, "I have heard what this people said to you. Everything they said was good. 29Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear Me and keep all My commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever."
1st Samuel 3:1 NKJV - The
boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli (the rabbi).
The (personal/revealed/spoken) Word
of the Lord was
rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.
1st Samuel 3:4 NIV - The Lord called Samuel.
1st Samuel 3:6 NIV - Again the Lord called, "Samuel!"
1st Samuel 3:8-10 NIV - The Lord called Samuel a 3rd time...Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy. Eli told Samuel, "Go and lie down; if He calls you, say, "Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening." Samuel went and lay down in his place. The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, "Samuel, Samuel!"
1st Samuel 3:21 NKJV The Lord appeared again in Shiloh; for the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by (speaking) the Word of the Lord.
1st Kings 19:9,11-13,15-18 RSV - 9He came to a cave and lodged there; behold the Word of the Lord came to him. He said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" 11Hesaid, "Go forth and stand upon the mount before the Lord." Behold, the Lord passed by. A great and strong wind rent the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind and earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12After the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. After the fire a still small voice (whisper). 13When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle (prayer shawl/tent Handkerchiefs & Aprons ) and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. Behold, there came a voice to him and said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" 15The Lord said to him, "Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus; when you arrive, you shall anoint Hazael to be king over Syria; 16Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint to be king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah you shall anoint to be prophet in your place. 17Him who escapes from the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay; him who escapes from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. 18Yet I will leave 7,000 in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him."
Isaiah 30:21 KJVer - Your ears shall hear a Word (voice of God) behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left."
Ezekiel 10:5 NIV - The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when He speaks.
Joel 3:16 KJVer - The Lord also shall roar out of Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and the earth shall shake, but the Lord will be the hope of His people and the strength of the children if Israel.
Psalm 29:3-9 Alexander Harkavy - 3The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thundereth; the Lord is upon many waters. 4The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. 5The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. 6He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. 7The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. 9The voice of the Lord causeth the oaks to start (spin/topple/whirl) and maketh (strips) the forests bare; and in His temple doth every one speak of His glory.
Isaiah 14:24 - Lord of hosts has
sworn, saying, "Surely, as
I have thought, so it shall come to pass,
and as I have purposed, so it
Matthew 3:13-15 - Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John, but John tried to deter Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?" As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened and he (John) saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on Him.
A voice from heaven said, "This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased."
Mark 9:7 TPNT - A cloud overshadowed them (Peter/Jacob/John+Jesus/Elijah/Moses) and there was a voice from the cloud, "This is My beloved Son; you must habitually listen to Him."
John 10:24-27 TPNT -

right now tell us plainly." 25Jesus
answered them, "I told you and you do not believe.
The works which I am doing
in the name of My Father testify these things about
26but you do not believe, because you are not from My sheep.
27My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they are following me.
28I am giving them eternal life, they would not ever die, and no one is able to seize them from My hand."
Acts 8:29 NIV - The (Holy) Spirit told Philip, "Go."
Acts 9:3-5 NIV - 3As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.
4He fell to the ground and heard a (heavenly) voice say to him (from within the light), "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?" 5Who are You, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, Whom you are persecuting," He replied.
Acts 10:13,19 NIV - 13Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter...19the (Holy) Spirit said to him, "Simon."
2nd Corinthians 10:5 paraphrased We are taking every (naughty/troublesome/terrorizing) thought captive to the obedience of Christ (through the weapons of His Holy Spirit, including taking communion daily).
1st John 5:8 Messianic TLB We have these 3 witnesses; the voice of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, the voice from heaven at the Messiah's baptism, and the voice before He died. They all say the same thing, that Yeshua the Messiah is the Son of God. (Spiritual insight. When in doubt about the source of a voice we are to ask, "Did Jesus come in the flesh?")
Revelation 8:5 ASV The angel took the censer; he filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it upon the earth; there followed thunders, voices, lightnings, and an earthquake.
In addition to the above presented ideas, one
method might be to ask Jesus to allow you to hear Him better, to request a
spiritual hearing aid.
Louise did that once and got the answer when she did not want to listen.
Instead, she began to argue back and rationalize with her brain/intellect.
It is the Holy Spirit Who talks to the human spirit, and then downloads to the
brain, so she understands. Louise was evaluating a great find of a lifetime, a
professionally done set of books by Timelife on all aspects of parapsychology,
UFO's, etc., at $2.00/book. She asked herself, "Should I buy this set?"
Immediately, the first answer that came back to her was, "NO.
Remember Ruth's classes? They (might) contain demons
and you would (could) be bringing them home with you."
(In retrospect, she did not remember if the demons were a fact or a
hypothesis, due to the subsequent argument with herself. She argued this
way and that way. She bought them and then returned them within the hour,
after recognizing/remembering that. in fact, she had just asked God to help her
hear Him better when He speaks to her.
It is "a more excellent way" for God to reveal many things to us by His
Holy Spirit, than by worldly knowledge, etc. Certainly this set is a must
have, intellectually, but for her it is forbidden, at least for now.
Louise is a slow learner, like many of us. Thank God, He allowed her to
return the books and to understand that He was attempting to answer her earnest
Benny Hinn is greatly adverse to one delving into the demonic; he even dislikes the use of the word...
Ida Mae and Frank Hammond were told by God NOT to even go to the library to look up schizophrenia; rather, they were told to listen only to Him, their tutor...
So now back to where we started. One's 1st impression/thought/mental response to a question, for many, is God's voice! 2ndly, we are to respond immediately, not arguing, not hesitating.
However, to respond immediately could be DANGEROUS advise for those currently having psychiatric problems. Those coping with mental illness and discernment issues would be safer to check with a confidant BEFORE acting. Hopefully this friend/mentor is a pastor or someone who loves Jesus Christ...
It is especially dangerous to act on an idea, if the thought is negative/harmful/ hurtful to self or others. Blessings...
One way to recognize God's voice is to understand that when your heart leaps/dances for joy and your mind/head contradicts that desire/wish/prayer/motive/unction/love as wrong timing or inappropriate emotion, that in fact may be God's Spirit in you saying yes. If you do not immediately obey your heart, it may be too late for the Holy Spirit to work through you in that situation at a later date. Remember when Elizabeth and Mary met and their children leapt for joy within them and the Holy Spirit burst forth in praise and joy through their lips?
You see, God often hints/whispers softly to our heart (our spirit rather than to our mind). Our spirit is alive, but it needs, like a baby, to learn to recognize Who is Daddy and to recognize His voice. Seldom do we hear Him with our ears, for Father God is Spirit rather than human. Perhaps from time to time we might even hear and see Jesus (God's son) Who clothed Himself with flesh, or get a whiff of His fragrance as He draws near or passes by, or even perhaps feel His touch/caress/love.
If we can hear (perceive/recognize/comprehend/obey/reject) our own thoughts or the thoughts of our enemy Satan, then certainly we can hear God's thoughts. Perhaps until now we have never been taught to listen to (observe) any thought, nor to identify its source. Now is the time to begin. Blessings.
Alves, Elizabeth - Becoming a Prayer Warrior -
In chapter 6 Journaling - Recording What You Hear (from God),
author insists that private daily/frequent spiritual journaling is a must, at
least for most of us. Those who participate in court cases realize that
memory is not fixed in stone and can change without our recognizing it.
Those who are around the older citizens see this a lot, especially with the
short term memory. God wrote the 10 commandments for Moses. Scribes
wrote much of the Old Testament. From time to time both God and
angels commanded their words to be written down. Exodus 34:27
The Lord said to Moses, "Write down these words, for in
accordance with these Words, I have made a covenant with you and with Israel"...
Many people awaking from spiritual dreams, immediately record them. This, too, is part of the journaling process.
Elizabeth contends that journaling is NOT an option, but a must, for spiritual maturity and discernment. Her chapter clarifies the how and why of proper journaling. She also reminds us that often in scripture we find the words, "It is written." These words are what Jesus used to deflect and defeat Satan.
Baker, Heidi - Compelled by Love - www.irismin.org - Epilogue - "In a vision...I heard an external, audible voice from God for the 1st time in my life. I was 16...Jesus told me that I was to be married to Him. Oil ran down my arm, and I felt Him kiss my left ring finger...When the heavy, weighty presence of God lifted...I had been motionless with my hands raised for nearly 3 hours."
Bentley, Todd - The Reality of the
Supernatural World -
Chapter 2 Levels of Prophetic Revelation "God speaks most
frequently through our thoughts...Here is a key to discerning between
God's thoughts and yours...If you are thinking about something and then suddenly
your mind takes a detour, it is probably a
God thought...because God just
dropped one of His thoughts on you and is prompting you to pray for someone's
healing. His thoughts often come out of nowhere or don't flow with what
you were just thinking." (Remember His thoughts are good and holy NOT ugly.)
"Sometimes I've heard the audible voice of the Lord...in the 3rd Heaven realm...It sometimes sounds like someone is trying to speak to me under water; its a muffled, booming sound, but I understand it through flowing thoughts that come to me...
Outside of 3rd Heaven experiences, when I hear God's audible voice, I normally hear Him speak to me conversationally, in plain speech...When I hear God this way, it's usually in intimate times of prayer. When the Lord visited me on Mother's Day in 1998, He spoke to me for 4 hours with the inner AND the outer, audible voice. Sometimes I heard thoughts flowing from a voice inside my head. Other times the Lord stood behind me and spoke into my ear...from outside." Some of the MANY ways God/Jesus will speak or make Himself manifest/known to our 5 senses or mind is by smell, visions, dreams, instant knowledge/wisdom, trances, angel visits, personal visits, translation in the spirit, and transportation in the spirit.

don't obey, soon I will not hear. Obedience must be instant. As we
instantly obey God, sensitivity to His voice will develop, and His voice will
become crystal clear. If we do not obey His voice, it begins to get
distant. Jesus says in John 7:17 "If any man will do
His will, he shall know the doctrine (teaching),
whether it be of God." If I don't know, it is
because I won't do. I have a bias, which I must deal with...I must first
surrender my bias (my will) before I can truly submit to the will of God."
Another lesson in recognizing the voice of God: "God spoke to me, 'Go back and sing'...Because my peace was ruffled, I knew I was disobeying God by continuing to walk away. So I submitted and went back...Presenting myself in obedience to the Lord, I stood there waiting...The Spirit suddenly prompted me. I opened my mouth and sang, 'You ask me how I know He lives; He lives within my heart.' It wasn't the music, but the words that the Spirit anointed."
Chapter 13 These Foolish Things "When I was a young man, I thought I knew the voice of God, but I didn't...I thought God told me were were going to have a little girl. Her name was to be Gloria Joy. When the baby was born, it was a boy - our Peter...I had to put my prophetic ministry on the shelf. The humbling truth that I wasn't as far along as I though I was. I did not recognize the Voice...I have to own where I am to be able to disown it."
Chapter 15 Crumbs from a Broken Loaf "God will speak to us through many means. Most of the time, we go to the Bible for guidance, but even there we must use caution...Randomly thumbing through the Bible for direction can be highly dangerous. There is no breath, no anointing on this type of search for guidance. Even when we get a direct Word of guidance out of a Bible reading, we still need to exercise caution on how we interpret it and move on it. The Bible may be the Word of God, but is it the Word of God to me for this moment, for this circumstance? If there is an anointing on my inquiry, then no matter what the method...the anointing teaches me as the Spirit guides me. If I wait for God to perform His Word, He will, confirming it in unmistakable ways....Vision can come to one man among thousands who have no vision."

Attacks' in Check -
"Our thinking comes back to us in the form of feelings...If we're having angry thoughts, we feel angry. If we're having resentful thoughts, we feel resentful...Feelings follow your thoughts just as surely as a lamb follows its mother...Nip this thought in the bud...Single thought usually leads to another...our own thinking has contributed to our mental anguish...Mental conversation...Catch yourself in the act of your thought attack - notice what's happening within your own thinking. Say to yourself, 'Whoops'...Becoming observer of your own thinking...to nip...in the bud by getting you out of your head...Regain your perspective by not allowing your (negative/repetitious) thoughts...The earlier you stop your thought attack, the easier it is to regroup...The payoff it worth it."

Cerullo, Morris - Son, Build Me an Army - www.mcwe.com - Chapter 5 - "Sometimes God speaks to me in an audible voice, just as clearly as one person talking to another. Sometimes He speaks to me through His Word.

Chapter 15 The Possibility of Church Growth Unlimited shares the 1st time Cho heard God's voice.
"I still do not know whether it was in an audible voice or by an impression in my spirit.
I know I saw a bright light, and I did receive the (following) message."
God's message is this, "My son, don't cry. I have heard your prayer. I have given you _____, _____ and ____ ....
I have given them to you potentially; but you have been asking them of Me in such vague terms that I cannot fulfill your request. Don't you know there are a dozen kinds of _____, _____ and ____? Which ones do you want? Be very clear.
I have so much trouble with My children, because they keep asking Me and asking Me and asking Me, yet they themselves do not know what kind of thing they want. Make your request very specific, and then I'll answer."
Cho, David Yonggi - The 4th Dimension - www.bridgelogos.com publisher - In chapter 1 Incubation - a Law of Faith Cho shares, "I felt a serenity, and a felling of tranquility come into my soul. Whenever I have that kind of feeling, a sense of the presence of God, He always speaks; so I waited. Then that still, small voice welled up in my soul, and the (Holy) Spirit" spoke to my inner man/heart.
Cho, David Yonggi - The Holy Spirit My Senior Partner - www.charismahouse.com publisher - Chapter 4 Unbelievers and the Holy Spirit remind us that the evidence that believers in Christ can hear God clearly is this, "50 days after His death, Jesus sent the gift of the Holy Spirit to His disciples to enable them to see and hear clearly." Cho illustrates in chapter 10 The Gifts of Revelation one's ability to hear/recognize God's voice. "Suddenly there came to my mind an instruction....Suddenly there came to my heart a further instruction." "Words of Knowledge" (revelation of emergency needed information) are a gift of the Holy Spirit. The ability to receive these spiritual insights are obtained most often through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Cho includes spiritual wisdom/understanding, visions, and discernments (that are instructive and glorify God) in the category of revelations.
Clement, Kim -
"Shakespeare once wrote,
'My Voice is in my Sword.'
When I read this, I realized that a voice is not always a sound or certain tone,
but an action as well...A manifestation of God without His voice will only make
you an observer and not a possessor...
'PERCEPTION' is the ability to have Insight and Foresight...The voice of God is only a sound to those who are conscious of their weakness and sin, but to those who are aware of their position in Christ, the sound is a clear voice...Fear will not allow you to hear God’s voice...The voice of God is not some newfound phenomenon. It began at Creation. God created light by speaking it into existence...He will supply us with direction, guidance, and knowledge, which we do not already possess. God created man with His words and His breath. His purpose for Adam and Eve was to give mankind dominion over the earth and fill it with righteousness...
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Satan knows this and that is why he has constantly attacked mankind with sin awareness, so that we will not hear spiritually but instead become frightened...
Satan knows that faith, the one thing with the ability to conquer him and move mountains, must not progress in a believer.
His greatest attack is to make you aware of your nakedness, your sin, and your weakness. Once he has you focused on this,
you are no longer able to hear. Num 13:33 There we saw the giants
(the descendants of Anak who came from the giants);
and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight...
Always look at the conditions surrounding a person’s life to see what prevented them from hearing God’s voice (or better still inquire of the Lord)...He doesn’t suddenly start speaking, His word is already in the atmosphere, and it is up to us to tune in (like a radio or TV) so that we are spiritually aligned to be able to hear. You must find the right station.
God’s form is more desirable than His voice. His voice is the most important aspect of communication, but how will you know that it is His voice, without recognizing the 'form' in which it comes...
I do not believe that the disciples would have said that if their eyes were not opened to his form.
The words of God must burn in your heart for it to take course and bring about change.
You must perceive where He is and recognize Him by divine perception and the unveiling of your eyes before His Words will ever burn in your heart and have the correct affect on your life. Stop listening and start looking.
Once you find His form, you will hear His voice.
1. How do you know the difference between God’s voice and Satan's voice? Satan has no creativity. His words cause confusion and self-examination. God's voice never does that. He always makes statements that defy our present state of affairs. Satan's voice demands that you 'qualify' for the task, usually demanding the attention on yourself rather than the mission.
2. Is it ever an audible voice you hear or is it just a 'knowing' that is in your heart? In this manual, I deal with perceiving the 'form' or 'appearance' rather than his audible voice. God 'appears' rather than speaks with a voice. Therefore, you will 'know' before you 'hear.'
3. Will my sin block me from hearing the voice of God? Sin does not block you from hearing, but rather it blocks you from recognizing Him when he appears. When the disciples were on the boat in the middle of the storm, they saw his appearance in the storm, but refused to hear because of their fear. He was speaking but their 'sin' of fear blocked them from 'seeing' Him. Remember that He almost passed them by because of this...
4. Do you consider our conscience to be or ever represent the voice of God?
Yes. Many times God has already spoken to us through our conscience and we ignore this because it is not audible. However, it is actually extremely audible.
5. Can a child carry the voice of God? Yes. Throughout scriptures you will find the children carried the voice of God, specifically Samuel and David. On the battlefield, David 'became' the voice of God.
6. Is God speaking all of the time, or does He stay quiet at times?
I believe that God has 'already' spoken before we were born and it remains in the atmosphere or the Spirit world, until we access it. He will guide us to that place but it has already been established in the spirit and ready for us to hear."

Secret knowledge of the Most High is NOT found by head/intellectual/natural knowledge gained by mentors nor by schooling nor by learning. His holy (revelation) knowledge is found only through insight imparted personally from Him into your human spirit. One's spirit is dead to God until it becomes born again, by repenting of one's sins and asking Jesus' Holy Spirit to come live in your heart/spirit. Then He comes and unites with your spirit making it alive, being able to recognize His voice. Communication is now possible between the 2 of you. "We get ourselves in a position to receive (His insights) by meditating theWord, praying and fellowshipping with the Lord...When you walk in revelation knowledge...the power of God flows in your life. That's why Satan goes to great lengths to get the Word out of your life before it can take root."
[Our spirit is like an orphan wanting to be adopted. It has a Daddy longing/instinct built into it. In addition to the interference of others and evil spirits, many addictions and personality problems arise out of the soul's misunderstanding of the human spirit's homing instinct, the God neediness in each human born. Scripture shows us that some men's spirits were impregnated with the Holy Spirit at birth! There is a 3rd invisible part (spirit) of the individual that most scientists and doctors do not recognize as real.]

- Beyond the Upper Room -
Part 3 Chapter 16 The Scriptural Scope of Praying in Tongues -
For born again Spirit filled Christians the Counselor is living right
inside of your inner man. To allow Him to counsel you, one needs to
spend DAILY time with Him praying in tongues, for beginners.
The more time, the better.
Not in minutes, but in hours. This is NEVER a waste of time. It is the best investment one will ever have with the most interest/returns/value. According to GOD, "Most Christians do NOT need (any sort of human) counseling." What they DO need is to take that time spent at a psychiatrist's office and spend it on their knees before God. Additionally, one will begin to recognize God's voice, which is a marvelous benefit.
For those of us who do not have the Holy Spirit Counselor living inside us, we ask/pray the following,
"Father God, I apologize for each and every unintentional and intentional mistake I have ever made.
I ask Your Son Jesus Christ to be my savior and lord.
Thank You for taking ALL my sins upon Your body at the cross.
In Your power I now also forgive myself and receive Your forgiveness.
Because You have forgiven ALL my sins,
In Your power and with Your love I now in my heart forgive ALL those who have hurt me.
With Your help, I will no longer rehearse any past wrongs against me.
I ask Your Holy Spirit to dwell inside of me forever and to fill up all those empty spaces vacated by the enemy.
I will regularly read the Bible, pray, and fellowship with Christians.
I renounce Satan and all his ways, in the name of Jesus Christ.
I renounce and reject any unGodly vows or covenants made by my family on my behalf.
I renew and affirm any Godly infant baptism/christening vows made by my family on my behalf.
I will receive the adult baptism of water for the removal of sins. Baptism of water
I ask for the baptism of Your Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
praying in tongues
I now thank You for all of the mentioned spiritual requests, regardless of any lack of feeling or seeing evidence, solely based on Your promises in Your Holy Scripture. This day I record as a permanent date in my diary. I thank You that You have also recorded this date in Your Book of Life in heaven. Glory and thanksgiving be to You. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen."

King, Patricia - Spiritual
Revolution - Experience the Supernatural in Your Life -
Chapter 7 The Helper (or the Guide) shares that "many
respected prophets...who have experienced amazing visitations,
trances, and audible voices at time...have admitted, however, that the
most common way
that the (Holy) Spirit
speaks to them is through the still small voice in the mind
impressions in the imaginations...Most of the time words from the Lord come
to them as they
are seeking God and posturing (by
fasting/ praising/worshiping/ oaking/ praying in tongues/etc)
themselves to hear from Him....
Most of the Holy Spirit's leading is through Him speaking into your thoughts."
"Continually ask the Lord to forgive you for every evil thought. Then be cautions and selective with what you allow your mind to be filled with. Be careful what you listen to." Ask the Holy Spirit "questions and then wait on Him for the answer...Journal both your questions and your answers. Then test your answers against the authority of the Scriptures and the nature of God to see if the Word is true." If the answers line up "with BOTH the Word and His nature, this confirms that we have heard the voice of the Lord...Keep a journal and practice listening for His voice every day."
One will need a concordance plus a Bible to effectively do this. A pastor is a good one to work with on this project.
Chapter 8 Pitfalls and Activation notes "that the still small voice can carry as much if not more authority than the audible voice of God at times...The faint visual impressions the Holy Spirit gives you are not a lower level of revelation than an open vision....Some of the most significant and fruitful spiritual revelations I have received were actually God-thoughts and God-impressions - very faint ones I might add. It is not what type of vision or revelation you receive that makes it significant or not...Many visions and encounters that are seemingly subtle and dull actually can bear enormous fruit. Do not despise that which appears insignificant...Your faint impressions are as valid as an open vision. Lean into all the Holy Spirit gives you and embrace."
King, Patricia - Ears That Hear - https://archive.org/stream/PatriciaKing/ebookearsthathear%20PDF1_djvu.txt - (transcript) In our personhood we have voice recognition software that recognizes the voice of God in the same manner we recognize our family members. (This is especially true when our spirit man comes alive with the impregnation/ quickening/kiss of God's Holy Spirit.) Mary Goddard taught Patricia King how to discern the voice of God.
"Foreword by Robert Hotchkin, 'God is all about relationship. As a matter of fact, He loves you so much and desires relationship with you so much, He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for you. Sometimes we believers are so understandably overwhelmed by the glorious gift of salvation, that we can miss why God did what He did at the cross;
it is because He loves us and wants relationship with us.'" (Relationships require both presence and time.)

(1)unbelief, (2)an undeveloped spirit, (3)a spirit of deafness resulting from unforgiveness, (4)a calloused conscience, and
(5)neglect of the Lord's presence and fellowship." Additionally, Larry recommends 2 hearing aids: (1)reading and meditating upon the Word of God and (2)speaking in tongues ("spirit to spirit communication with God that Adam and Eve had before the fall").

(I might inherit that same disease. I do not feel love for her/him anymore. I will never...I, I, I ! Since those thoughts are seeds, we must immediately recognize, refuse and reject them before they take root and become weeds (tares), spiritual snares, and legal grounds for disease and personal crisis.) Satan's battlefield is mainly in our mind and his weapons are typically 1st person (pronouns: me, myself and I) subconscious or conscious subtle bitter thoughts, intellectual impressions, mental suggestions, compulsive impulses, and/or negative memory recall. "If Satan can get us to accept his thoughts as our own, then basically his job is over."

As I was looking at this leftover gold, immediately the cloud said, 'Look at this gold; we throw it on earth and the kings of the earth fight for the leftovers, because they do not know the real wealth is here in Heaven...God doesn't need all you think He needs; He just needs your obedience.'

Another method often experienced in ministry is vicarious (physical or

synonym for a word of knowledge from the Lord. The important thing is that

Chapter 2 Proving God "We had never learned how to listen to the voice of the Spirit. "Remember that the Holy Spirit in you knows all things. If you are open, He will give you words of knowledge (needed information/insight)" so that you can give God the thanks, credit and glory.
Chapter 3 Our Inheritance "Jesus was not motivated by the things His ears heard or even by the need of the people. He was motivated by the VOICE of His Father...Until we learn to discern, listen to and obey the Spirit, we will just stumble around, trying to help other in our own strength through the natural realm." (Most Christians are waiting for an audible/ compelling voice rather than an inner impression/thought/unction/whisper. God's thoughts tend to bring clarity/ enlightenment rather than confusion. God's thoughts tend to be tender gentle like a breeze rather than agitating like a storm.)
Chapter 4 Learning to Know the Holy Spirit "His voice will become stronger in you spirit as you obey His promptings."
Walters, Kathie - Parenting by the Spirit - www.goodnews.netministries.org - "When we have needed a word from the Lord, I have always asked Him to speak very specifically. Usually through someone who does not know about the present situation. That way I've known it was really from God and not someone's opinion." "God wants us all to learn instant obedience...At some point in your life, your (or your child's) instant obedience to God's voice could be the most important action you ever took."
Chapter 8 The Witness of Spirit - in You notes that I need to "stand still and switch off my mind and take a note of the inner witness in my spirit." Determine to listen to the Holy Spirit Who is always correct rather than to respond on auto pilot without thinking/without filtering out the lies/without listening to God.

"One thing is sure: you cannot forget the evil thing that you have done. Another thing is also sure: the Devil will not let you forget...A 3rd thing that is true: God has forgotten our sins (Isaiah 43:25; Jeremiah 31:34), and we have to decide whether we will believe ourselves, the Devil, or God." "Evil thoughts are from Satan. Satan does NOT know your thoughts. Satan does NOT know your (heavenly) desires. God hides these things from him.."
"When does the Devil find anything in you? When he suggests a thought in order to bring some thought out of you; he gets you the moment he does. But if you are delivered by the blood and made holy, the Devil can NOT arouse you...
How can you deal with it (identify/test the source): Say to him, 'Did Jesus come in the flesh?' The Evil One will say, 'NO.' NO demon power out of hell or in hell has ever been willing to say that Jesus came in the flesh. So when he says, 'NO,' you can say, 'Get behind me, Satan. I rebuke you in the name of Jesus.' John 4:2-4."

Carry him/her away into that intoxicatingly wonderful place of Your love and glory presence.
Begin to saturate ___________ with Your goodness.
Like Elisha prayed for his servant (in 2 Kings 6:17), Lord, I pray that You would open _________'s eyes (spiritual senses) that _________ may see (You better).
As _________ presents his/her (5) spiritual senses to You, open him/her up and sensitize him/her to the wonders of Your supernatural kingdom. I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen."

Brown, Rebecca -

"NEVER think you have reached a place where you cannot be deceived...Satan will ALWAYS try to attack your personal relationship and communication with God. Do not ever let him stop you from seeking to 'hear' God’s voice...Never think that you need to clear your mind, or blank your mind to hear from God. That is why God commands us to take every thought captive. We are to be in control of our thoughts at all times. If you blank (empty) your mind, you have just opened a door for demon spirits to enter in and take control. This (passivity) is the very basis for all forms of occultic meditation. There is a big difference between occultic meditation, and Christian meditation. Christian meditation is ACTIVE. You are actively thinking about God and His Word. The Holy Spirit is perfectly capable of over-riding our active minds to speak to us."

"The inner promptings of conscience are very often the voice of the Holy Spirit within you...to go beyond yourself in order to fulfill the law of love...of the Holy Spirit acting within you...the act...totally against his will, incomprehensible... natural abhorrence at the thought...wanted to run...but the Holy Spirit came upon them and emboldened them."

It is an anointing. It is God’s super on your natural...Look for opportunities to obey God, and continue to be faithful over the little. Be faithful with the written Word first.

Get ready to hear a Word from God and obey what you hear."
Dollar, Creflo - Check Your Hearing - http://www.creflodollarministries.org/BibleStudy/Articles.aspx?id=370
"The most valuable asset any Christian has is the ability to hear from God. As a child of God, your success in life depends entirely on your ability to hear the Father’s instructions to you and your willingness to obey those instructions... Hearing from God is an art that must be cultivated, and it takes practice and diligence to develop this critical part of your relationship with Him. One of the primary keys to hearing from God is having a solid relationship with the Holy Spirit. He dwells in your born-again spirit...
Through consistently studying and meditating on God’s Word, and fellowshipping with Him through prayer, will you be able to sharpen your ability to hear from Him. Communication is a vital part of your relationships with others, and it is just as important in your relationship with God...
1. Maintain a spirit of expectancy. You must first expect to hear from God, and then expect Him to answer your prayers (Proverbs 23:18). 2. Pray in the spirit (Romans 8:26; Jude 20), pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17), and spend time listening for God’s voice as you pray. 3. Confirm what you hear with the Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Everything you hear from God should line up with the Scriptures. 4. Wait for the peace of God (Colossians 3:15). 5. If you have doubts about something you hear, don’t move on it. 6. Seek godly counsel (Proverbs 24:6). 7. When you hear something (that lines up with or does NOT contradict Scripture), boldly obey. Every time you obey God, your hearing becomes clearer and more distinct. In John 10:27, Jesus says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” When you make Jesus your Lord and Savior, you gain the ability to hear from God clearly, every day, in specific detail. In fact, the Bible says that not only will you hear His voice, but you will follow Him when He speaks. That
is what distinguishes the sheep from the goats; sheep follow their shepherd, while goats do their own thing. @ http://www.creflodollarministries.org/BibleStudy/Articles.aspx

"Once you have an image in your mind of something you want to do or become, nothing can stop that image from coming to pass. Whatever you meditate on will become the blueprint for your reality. Too often, though, Christians suffer from 'stinking thinking.' They give the devil control of their minds by meditating on thoughts that do not line up with the Word of God. Then they reap the results of the curse...To keep the devil from gaining a foothold in your life, you must develop a sound mind that is completely controlled and directed by the Holy Spirit. In other words, you must renew your mind with the Word of God...When you become born again, your spirit instantly changes; you are recreated in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17). Yet your mind is NOT recreated. You must conform your thinking continually and on purpose; it is NOT an overnight, one-time event. Renewing your mind to God’s Word every day is vital. By reading (aloud and listening to) the Scriptures and meditating on them (especially when driving to and from work)...
When you set your mind on the Word of God, you’ll also experience soul prosperity and peace (3 John 2). The Bible says that the issues of life flow out of the heart (Proverbs 4:23). The word heart in this scripture actually refers to your soul—your mind, your will and your emotions. If you can control your mind, you can control your destiny. But it will take a quality decision on your part to dedicate your life to changing the way you think (and to changing your daily schedule to include time with God and time reading aloud the Bible)...It is God’s will that your mind, will and emotions be whole, with nothing missing or broken. As a Believer, you can receive a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). It is then up to you to enforce and maintain soundness of mind by keeping your thoughts and imaginations in line with God and His Word (Isaiah 26:3)."
Dollar, Creflo - Renewing Your Mind on a Subconscious Level - "When we become born again, we must enter into the most important part of our walk with God—renewing our minds. Romans 12:1, 2 says we are not to be conformed to the world, but we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds so that we can demonstrate and prove the perfect will of God. Isn’t it exciting to know that renewing your mind has the power to absolutely transform your entire life? You can break any habit or behavior by making a quality decision to renew your mind daily through the meditation and study of God’s Word (including listening to Bible on CD while driving to & from work)...Renewing the mind is not a one-time event, but it is an ongoing process that must continue for the rest of our lives. We can renew our minds to the point where even our subconscious thoughts and automatic responses become aligned with the Word of God. When mind renewal takes place on this subconscious level, we are actually renewing the spirit of our minds (Ephesians 4:23). This is the depth of transformation every Believer should aspire to achieve because it is the pathway to genuinely changing our behavior." (We have a hu-man and a spirit man. It is the spirit man inside of us that feeds on God's word.)
Dollar, Creflo - The Battle for Your Garden - "Although you may not be able to stop the thoughts from coming, you don’t have to accept them when they do...Your weapon against negative thoughts is the Word of God! When those suggestions come to your mind, open your mouth and confess God’s promises in faith. This is what it means to capture your thoughts and cast them down. There is NO thought or imagination that can stand against the Word. It is the final authority in your life. Don’t ever get slack." (When you do, repent to God, immediately; He ALWAYS forgives, immediately.)
Hutton, Larry - http://lifeatvictory.com/Impartation_2011/hutton_bio.php - "In 1980, God spoke to Larry in an audible voice and said, 'Keep it simple. My Word is simple.'"
"This is the way it is in Heaven, guys. You think of

Are Your Thoughts A Disaster? - “I
lived in a state of constant stress.
I was anxious and fearful. Doctors put me on meds to deal with the panic attacks I was having, but that only seemed to make things worse. Fear consumed my life, to the point of not wanting to leave my house. Daily life became a game of survival. I was constantly looking over my shoulder, waiting for the next thing to go wrong or blow up.
I had no joy and no peace. My thoughts were a disaster. I clearly remember the day
I reached the end of my rope; I collapsed on my bed, desperately crying out to God.
That day God said, ‘Take the time to learn how My Kingdom operates.’ That was when everything changed. Drenda and I began to learn how the Kingdom of God operates,
and it was like someone flipped a light switch.
John 8:32 says, ‘You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’
It’s the truth that sets you free, and you have to reintroduce your mind to the truth, to what God says about you.
That’s when Drenda (Kessee) and I started changing our thoughts. Yes, you can choose what you think about. You don’t have to think on everything that pops into your head.
The Bible says that we’re to take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Plain and simple, your brain does not have the authority to think anything it wants.
I didn’t know that then, but I sure know it now.
I want to make sure you know it too; You can choose what you think about.
You have to test every thought you have against God’s will for you. How do you know His will? It’s made known to us in His Word, the Bible. Measure everything against what God says. Umpire your thoughts. If they don’t line up with what God says, get them out. Replace them with a right thought.
How do you know what right thought to think? Read your Bible.
This is why I say that memory verses aren’t just for kids; they’re for everyone.
If you memorize Scriptures, you’ll have them ready and waiting to replace negative thoughts.
When Drenda and I started changing our thoughts, she put Scriptures and the promises of God everywhere.
We both needed constant reminders that we wouldn’t be in the wilderness forever.
We were going through a hard time, but we were going through—we weren’t staying there. We were headed somewhere else, somewhere better. We knew God had promises for our family. The Word of God was working in our hearts and minds.
We were learning how to access the Kingdom inside of us by renewing our minds.
Just like us, you can’t move forward until you decide to change your thoughts, until you start thinking like God thinks. You can overcome any mental blocks, thoughts of depression, discouragement, fear, and doubt. You can renew your mind and replace toxic thoughts, and see your life from God’s perspective.

We need "a fresh new baptism each day in order to wash away all the structures we have accepted without the witness (permission/release/OK/yes/green light/empowerment/directive) from the (Holy) 'Spirit of truth'."
In other words we are NOT to rely on our own perception or on another's needs but only on the voice/directive of the Holy Spirit, before we take any action, especially spiritual/religious activity.
Meyer, Joyce -
How to Succeed at
Being Yourself By Joyce Meyer
- important @
1.Never say or think negative things about yourself, such as, "I never do anything right." "I'll never change." "I'm ugly." "I look terrible." "I'm dumb." "Who could ever love me?"
Matthew 12:37 says, "by your words you will be justified...and by your words you will be condemned."
Proverbs 23:7 says, "as [a man] thinketh in his heart, so is he."
In other words, the way we talk and think about ourselves reveals how we feel about ourselves.
2.Speak good things about yourself (as private confessions) in line with what the Word says about you. For example: "I am the righteousness of God in Christ." "I am made acceptable in the Beloved." "God created me and formed me with His own hands. God doesn't make mistakes." I like starting the day making good confessions. Perhaps you can do this while you're driving to work or cleaning house. I also encourage you to look in the mirror and say out loud, "God loves and accepts you, and so do I." You may even try hugging yourself. This is beneficial to people who have lacked love and acceptance in their lives.
3.Never compare yourself with other people. God must love variety or He wouldn't have created us all differently - even down to our fingerprints. You'll never succeed at being yourself if you're trying to be like someone else. Other people can be a good example to you, but duplicating even their good traits will manifest differently through your individual personality.
4.Focus on your potential instead of your limitations. Actress Helen Hayes was told early in her career that if she were four inches taller she'd be the greatest actress of her time. Her coaches tried various methods of stretching her, but nothing increased her height. She refused to concentrate on the supposed limitation of being five feet tall and decided to concentrate on her potential. As a result, she was eventually cast as Mary, Queen of Scotland - one of the tallest queens who ever lived.
5.Find something you like to do that you do well, and do it over and over. If you spend your time doing things you're not good at, it'll frustrate you and cause you to feel defeated and unsuccessful.
6.Have the courage to be different and deal with criticism. Be a God-pleaser, not a man-pleaser (see Galatians 1:10). If you dare to be different, you'll have to expect some criticism. Going along with the crowd-when you know in your heart God's leading you a different way - is one reason people don't succeed at being themselves. You won't like yourself very much if you go against your own convictions.
7.Don't let the way another person treats you determine your worth.
8.Keep your flaws in perspective. People with a high level of confidence have just as many weaknesses as people without confidence, but they concentrate on their strengths, not their flaws or weaknesses. In conclusion, let me remind you of my opening statement: It's tough to enjoy life when you don't like yourself. When you learn to succeed at being yourself, you'll be well on your way to enjoying life more fully. - www.joycemeyer.org

Rogers, Bob - http://www.theremnant.com/January2008on-line.pdf - "Many times we can get so wrapped up with the cares of life we refuse to fast and when we do, we cut ourselves off from being sensitive to the voice of the Lord. There are 4 desires that greatly motivate people. There is the desire for food, the desire for sex, the desire for money, and the desire for the supernatural. When a person is left to himself, the first 3 desires will rise to the surface and seek dominance in his life. Soon the desire for God will be pushed down so far that a person can’t hear anything from God. But when you begin to fast and take authority over food, after about 3 days, the hunger for food begins to lift. The headaches go away. Then you begin to see that God gives you victory."

Bobby was filled with the Holy Spirit when he was in the womb! He could and can still hear your thoughts and see in the spirit realm. He always backs up his words with scripture.
His scriptural evidence is John the Baptist's being filled with the Holy Spirit while he was still in the womb.
As for perceiving other's thoughts, refer to this scripture, for 1 example. Matthew12:25 (Mark 3 + Luke 11) He (Jesus) knew their thoughts.
As for seeing things with the eyes of one's spirit man, refer to 2nd Kings5:26 Alexander Harkavy He (Elisha) said unto him (Gedhazi), "Went not mine heart (invisible human spirit) with thee, when the man turned from his chariot to meet thee?"

"1. See it (the Bible/Scripture reading) as a love letter from God to you!
2. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.
(1 Corinthians 8:2) Read it (God's love letters) to discover God’s love...
3. See it as a description of WHO you are in Christ...
4. Make 'believing it (God's thoughts about us)' the goal...
5. See it as seed. Plant it as seed in your heart, and expect the harvest of God’s promises.
THINK IT & BELIEVE IT:
God’s Word is a love letter to me. I break the mentality of guilt or condemnation for not reading it enough. My goal is to BELIEVE whatever I do read. As I do, it builds me up. I plant the seed of it in my heart, and my harvest (of receiving His love, loving Him back, and loving self) is assured, in Jesus’ Name."

In the Old Testament God wrote His word on tablets, whereas in the New Testament
He wrote His word on our hearts. His word/voice today to us is in in the Scripture.
If we do NOT heed/read His word in the Bible, there is little need for Him
to continue speaking to us (our spirit man) by His Holy Spirit.

Hazlett, Bob - http://d3tnb2mam8l2qt.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/IS834Transcript_Hazlett.pdf J
SID: When Bob was a young boy he did not have the power, the knowledge, the ability to recognize when a thought was from God, when a thought was from the devil, when
a thought was perhaps from himself, and the devil took advantage of it.
You had suicidal thoughts as a child.
BOB: Along with these night terrors and visitations, I had these thoughts going
through my mind: you’re worthless, kill yourself, sometimes audibly, sometimes
literally something jumping on top of me. I would come to my parents’ room. I would ask them for prayer. But one night I went to my parents’ room and my father was praying for me, and like he normally did, help him to think good thoughts. All of a sudden his voice changed, and he said, “I command these suicidal thoughts to be quieted and never come back.” When he did that something broke in me, and I started to cry because my father didn’t know that. I had never told anyone, but my Father in Heaven did.
When you hear your Father’s voice it quiets all the other voices around you,
and I believe that’s a key to learning the difference between where the thoughts come from, because Jesus said, “You’ll hear my voice and you won’t follow the voice of a stranger.”
BOB: I was doing a conference and the auditorium was empty in between sessions.
I happened to be walking through, and I heard this voice.
It was like it came from a balcony.
It seemed audible, but it was one of those outside of me voices, and it was the same voice, “You’re worthless. You should kill yourself.” I stopped. I had this funny moment because I realized how ridiculous this thought was. I pointed to the balcony, and if anyone saw me they’d think I was crazy. I said, “You’re not my thought.
I know where you came from and I’m not going to listen to that any more.”

"I came and saw this mad person. The spirit of God spoke to my heart, not to my ear.
I hear the voice of God in my heart and not in my ears. I heard the voice of God telling me: “Go there and collect the cutlass. Just tell the madman to bring the cutlass.”
When I was moving towards the madman, everybody was concerned for my safety.
They were saying something like: ‘This is boy, he wants to die.’ I just went to the mad-man and commanded him: 'Give me this cutlass, in the name of Jesus.'
The madman gave me the cutlass. I collected it and gave it to a teacher. It was from there they started calling me Small Pastor."
Kat Kerr- Recent God Movements, heaven revelations 8/10/13 from
1st we recognize sin and repent for it. 2nd we invite Jesus to be our savior and Lord.
3rd we invite Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit.
1st His Holy Spirit walks along side of us. 2nd His Holy Spirit moves on inside of us.
It is then when the Holy Spirit is indwelling us that we begin to hear Him more clearly.
This is how Jesus wants counseling and deliverance done:
"Father, in Jesus' name, as an act of my will, I loose from my soul any darkness/hate/unforgiveness/offense/fear/addiction-of-any-kind."
"Father, in Jesus' name, as an act of my will, I choose to call back any layers of my soul
I gave to a person/place/thing that is not of You;
right now, come back."
"Father, in Jesus' name, right now, my soul is whole. I ask You with my will;
I choose with my will to have You download Your love, Your joy, Your power, Your Presence, and Your plans for my life. I receive it. Amen."
"Father, You desire above all things that I prosper and be in health.
Right now my soul prospers. My soul is whole, so bring it down. Halleluiah. Amen."

Hearing God's voice/opinion/ideas from a practical human perspective
of Flue, Switzerland -
"He was 50 years old when an interior voice said to him: 'Leave everything you love,
and God will take care of you.' He had to undergo a distressing combat, but decided finally to leave everything: wife, children, house, lands, to serve God. He left, barefooted, clothed in a long robe of coarse fabric, in his hand a rosary, without money or provisions, casting a final tender and prolonged gaze on his loved ones. His habitual prayer was this: 'My Lord and my God, remove from me all that can prevent me from going to You. My Lord and my God, give me all that can draw me to You.' One night God penetrated the hermit with a brilliant light, and from that time on he never again experienced hunger, thirst or cold. Having found a wild and solitary place, he dwelt there for a time in a hut of leaves, later in a cabin built with stones...The holy hermit lived for 19 years (eating) only by the Holy Eucharist."
Olsteen, Joel - 11/11/2019 Monday Veteran's day @ https://www.lakewoodchurch.com/watch-online - Joel reminds us that typically when we hear in our mind, "I know. I should", then it could likely be the intent/whisper of Holy Spirit. Thus, we need to take heed and act on this reminder, should it align with Holy Scripture and the nature of Father God in heaven.

day 1-5 of week 1 - Day #1 Not So Well With My Soul - "My steady flow of disapproving thoughts and self-talk once formed a constant stream running through my mind.
I badgered, devalued, and said cutting words to myself. Does this sound familiar to you? Harsh words can feel like a raging river, tossing us until we feel we’re drowning in our own self-condemnation. But sometimes our destructive self-talk is more like a steady drip dripping - an unrelenting trickle of poison, creating a (biochemical and emotional) wash of pessimism. The words you speak (internally) to your own soul (mind) really can make it 'well' or 'not so well' with your soul (mental health). Why? Because words have great influence…even the ones you silently speak to yourself. That’s why it matters how you (agree with/accept/believe or) use them...Don’t assume only the words you speak aloud either bring life or invite death. The silent words you speak to your own soul are just as important. Words convey thoughts. Words frame thoughts; thoughts consist of words.
We can’t even think without words & you can’t talk to yourself without using words...
Matthew 12...'A good man produces good things from his storeroom of good, and an evil man produces evil things from his storeroom of evil.' (v. 35). The Greek word for store room is thesauros. The term thesaurus, used to describe a storeroom (collection) of words, is derived from this word. Thesauros also refers to the magi’s chests of gold, frankincense, and myrrh (Matt. 2:11). A thesauros, like a storeroom or the magi’s chests, is a container. Your heart and mind are also containers. They are full of words, many of which you’ve said to yourself over the years...The Enemy of your soul would love to stifle you with self-condemnation, lies, and ill-fitting words (that do NOT agree with God's truth about you) so your thoughts become a jumbled mess that controls you. He (Satan) would love for you to keep listing the same old negative, untruthful stuff you’ve always listed. He would love to keep throwing junk into that potential treasure chest so there’s no room for truth (of the good and/or potential which others and God recognize)...I like to think of our thesauros as a thought closet...Ask God to show you if you have filled your thesauros based on who you truly are or if you have confused your identity with your struggles."
Day #2 Your Thought Closet - "If you beat yourself up with words, you know how I felt...The thesaurus of words and thoughts tucked away in our hearts and minds...becomes our souls’ vocabulary, so when our thoughts are out of control, it feels like...a tangled mess of emotions. This thesaurus is much like a secret closet in your mind, a thought closet...All those 'I am’s' we say to ourselves take up residence like old prom dresses, and we clothe ourselves every day with whatever we store there...As you talk to yourself today, tell yourself to commit your way to God - one word, one thought at a time - and tell your soul to rely on God’s Word more than your words...He can help your dilapidated thought closet experience a divine makeover."
Day #3 The Soundtrack in Your Thought Closet -
"We all meditate, but not all of us realize it! Meditation is like our thought closets’ soundtrack. We don’t just hear it, we sing along. Our meditation is made up of words; words compose thoughts, and thoughts gravitate to themes that string together, making a (subconscious) constant stream...It’s important to tune into the lyrics, melody, and style of our meditations. The Hebrew word siyach appears several times translated as 'meditate.' It means 'to ponder, to converse with oneself'...Most of our meditations are swimming around in our thought closet. If you observe them (as in quantum physics), you can determine they fall into some categories - like bins in our thought closets...To make our thought closets look like God’s, we engage in godly (scriptural) meditation. 1st, we must (continually & deliberately) focus our minds...To begin to have a thought closet that looks like God’s, we must have a soundtrack playing within that is written in the highest key possible! Meditation is based on (positive/holy) things above, not on (negative) things below...Meditation involves not only 'storing' our thoughts (kept & treasured) like Mary did, but also 'studying' (replaying) them (ponder)...When you find your mind wandering toward earthly things that distract you from God’s wonders and Word, fix your mind on things above...Start paying attention to where your thoughts wander during an idle moment...
Day #4 Something Else to Think About -
"Are you surprised at your self-talk or by the substance of what you say to yourself...
Worry is (continually) fixating or meditating on what if rather than what is.
Our English word worry comes from the Old English wyrgan and the Old High German würgen. Both mean 'to strangle.' When we worry, we choke out the life-giving truth that should be filling our thought closets...
Pondering the goodness of God and His past provisions, like (the psalmist) Asaph did, is a form of godly meditation...Ruminating on the 'what if’s' is an unhealthy way of meditating that invites fear. When we do this, there’s no (or little) room left in our thought closets
for truth. Most worry thoughts begin with the words what if. (Holy/healthy) meditation on (God's) truth begins with what is...Worry-filled meditation never leads to liberty.
It turns your thought closet into a prison filled with life-choking weeds...The standard
for our words and meditation is not merely what is acceptable to us; rather, it is what is acceptable to God. In our own sight, our self-talk and meditation may appear fine, but imagine God listening to you talk to yourself...God...cares about what you say to yourself because He cares about you. He is your Father, the One who made you. To focus on 'what if' and never meditate on 'what is' imprisons you. To dwell on untruths is to hold His truth in low regard...When anxious thoughts start to crowd you, shift your gaze. Expect God’s consolation (comfort, relief, support, solace) to give your soul something better to focus on...If you start to play the soundtrack of worry today in your thought closet, push the pause button and notice that the song isn’t played in the key of truth. So turn your worry into a prayer. That will focus your mind on things above and invite God’s comfort to
delight your soul."
Day #5 What Does Truth Sound Like -
"My Bible is the size of a deck of cards, and it talks! By pressing a series of buttons,
I can navigate Scripture and have 'Precise Pete,' my favorite digital voice, read the passage. Because it’s so portable, I can truly say 'Thy Word have I hid in my…purse'.... Commit as much of God’s Word to memory as possible. But we don’t speak to ourselves with Scripture quotes all day long...Memorize Scripture. You can start with the Soul Talk Sound bites each week...Find out today what truth sounds like so you will be better equipped to recognize it...(Godly) Truth is always authoritative and gracious. Authoritative words should never be harsh, and gracious words should never be without power...
Your soul talk is to be permeated with grace and truth. If it’s not gracious, stop talking to yourself that way. Throw those thoughts out of your thought closet. If it’s not truth, stop meditating on it. The standard of grace and truth is to be posted on the door of our thought closets: 'Only grace and truth allowed in!' That means if you have the tendency toward name-calling, you might need a sign on the door that reads: 'Do Not Enter'...
To call yourself an untruthful, harsh name is a sin. It’s an insult to God, demeans His workmanship, and devalues His creation...Who you are and what you struggle with are not the same thing.” When you call yourself a name, it reflects what you struggle with;
it is an emotional reaction. It is not a statement of who you are.
Dear Father, Please forgive me for calling myself __. In Your strength, I repent from telling lies to and about myself. Please give me grace to speak truth to my soul about who I am in You. I know the Enemy will tempt me in this area. Make me alert and strong in Your power. Thank You for Your forgiveness and freedom. Amen."
Simmons - 2/2/2015 -
BRIAN: Well I have to tell you the truth. I saw a 3rd book and I knew the Lord told me I could only take 2. In Heaven, whatever you think is put out over the loud speaker, everyone hears it. Your thoughts are broadcasted. So here's what I hear coming out of the loud speaker, and it's my own thoughts, how can I steal this book. Then I said, oh, no, I'm shoplifting on God. I felt so ashamed. But I knew if I could take this book, there was this book, so, if I could just take this book back with me to the natural realm it would trigger awakening in all the nations of the earth. It would bring, it would make the name of Jesus famous in the world. But Jesus came to me and said, "Brian, I cannot let you take this book." He looked at me in the eyes with love that melted me and he said, "You are not ready for that book." Then he promised that, "I will bring you back one day and I will give you that book."
Thompson, Robb - 5/5/2007 WebCast - Archives - http://www.winninginlife.org/lbschedule.html
Thompson shares his belief that Satin did not appear in person, but rather in the thoughts of Jesus, during His 40 day temptation, the way Satin/demons frequently appear/manifest to a majority of individuals. Thompson contends that confusion can result when we listen to self/demons/lies in our mind/head/thoughts and fail to defend/contradict/correct/speak back to self. Thompson believes that Jesus rejected/talked back to the wrong voices in
His head. Jesus "spoke" scripture back to the white lies/half truths/trickery. (Remember, both the Holy Spirit and the evil spirit are spirits; 99% of the time they are invisible.)

You had a friend that you gave much insight of the invisible world in Australia that had his spiritual sight activated. Explain.
RYAN: For 4 months, night and day, he could see, hear, smell, touch and taste in the Spirit. He learned so much about the spirit realm. One of the biggest things he learned is that what you think and what you feel is like communication in the spirit realm. In the natural, you know, we just talk, have body language, or whatever.
But in the spirit, thoughts and feelings are communication. Many people think that they can shift the atmosphere around them or make the atmosphere around them better by manipulating things around them. But what he began to realize is that what you release from you empowers the atmosphere around you. If you want to live in the presence of God, then release praise and worship to God. Have worship music.
SID: What did he see with his eyes when people were angry?
RYAN: Well he saw that thoughts were emitted like a color, a frequency and a fragrance. For many people they were like blood in the water for sharks. You know, sharks can smell one drop of blood in the water from a long way away. So when people would think things like anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, depression, it would release
a frequency, a communication in the spirit realm [to alert (a yes/green light to) evil spirits/demons/limbic system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amygdala ].
SID: Maybe that's why Jesus said, 'Fear not.'
SID: When you fear you said it's like sharks headed towards blood in the water.
RYAN: They can smell your fear, anger and issues of your heart. It empowers them to form an atmosphere around your life that's like a closed Heaven. Jesus opened that.
SID: Does the reverse work when you're worshiping God?
RYAN: Absolutely. When you're praising, worshiping God. When you're filled with joy, blessing people, it empowers the Kingdom of Heaven to form an atmosphere around you. Jesus said, 'I want you to pray (aloud) that my Kingdom would come, My will would be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.' He wants the atmosphere in your life to look like Heaven. There's no sickness in Heaven. There's no depression in Heaven. Begin to focus on the reality of God...Begin to live a lifestyle of praise and worship." [Remove focus from/off-of negative emotions/circumstances/thoughts. We (with help of Holy Spirit & angels) can override/overrule negative vibes and replace them with the opposite positive by an act of our free will (part of our soul) regardless of our medical diagnosis/history/medications/ancestry/circumstances.]

Glory Encounter - #1-5
#5-2.Most prevalent communication in heaven is heart to heart or thought
to thought, rather than speech. EVERYTHING in heaven is alive. You
can walk through walls in your mansion, but you
1st need to ask permission.
Mansions have dimensions. In heaven is NO time/space.
We must become harmless; the meeker, the more authority. Lose the power to hurt others with words/thoughts; then you become trustworthy. Thoughts have eternal consequences; an angel scribes every thought. The blood of Jesus can erase, however, when wrong thoughts are rejected/forgiven. Never dwell on negative thoughts. Do NOT curse, even in your thoughts. Thoughts can harm OR purify.
Ecclesiastes 10:20 CJB Don't insult the king, not even in your thoughts; and don't insult the wealthy, not even in your bedroom; for a bird in the air might carry the news, a creature with wings might repeat what you said.
The Devil cannot read thoughts, but can see/feel/sense what evil you emit; negativity, rebellion, depression sends out a foul odor/stinks/attracts the demonic/repels the angelic.

Bond, Mel - Releasing God's Anointing - Chapter 7 Learning How to Release God's Anointing - "Proverbs 23:7 says, 'For as one thinks in his heart, so is he...'1st you think, and then you become what you've been thinking. If we are NOT pleased with what we have, what we can do, and who we are, we must change our thinking patterns. We are, today, because of how we have thought in the past. Since God's Word (spoken/translated into our language) will NOT return void, this doctrine works for a non-Christian, as well...We first discover God's loving-kindness through a process of mentally (intellectually) finding it out, and then meditating and thinking upon the discovery. We, then accept this truth (Scripture) deep down into our spirits, by talking (receiving/agreeing) and acting like it is true. As a result, a quickening will take place. I have never been able to get anyone healed who did NOT believe in healing. Neither could Jesus. Believing begins in the mind. - (Healing, miracles and deliverance begin in the mind.) That is why the Scriptures say NOT to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by reading (out loud) and thinking in line with the Holy Scriptures...Start believing (agreeing) that the Word of God is true (for you/me personally), (that the works of Jesus will be accomplished in your/my mind and body) and that you (I) will accomplish the works of Jesus and even greater works according to John 14:12-14....God can only do according to His Word that is working in our thoughts...If we are NOT thinking God's Words, then His Words are NOT working in us...
If we do NOT think in agreement with God's Word (and do NOT reject/disagree with evil/harmful thoughts that contradict God's thoughts in Scripture), we shut the door to the (helping/healing/miracle/deliverance Holy Spirit) anointing of God working in and through us. God is limited."
Chapter 8 Dying, So Jesus Can Live - section Renew Your Mind - "If we do NOT know the Word of God and He speaks to us (in our mind/thoughts/head/ears), we won't know if it was God, the devil, or our minds speaking. Hosea 4:6 says, 'Gods people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge' ( of the words of God)."

From the Inside Out - Simple Steps to Lasting Change - A Revolutionary 40-day Fast From Wrong
Thinking - CD -
Dickow, Gregory - Revolution - from the Inside Out - http://fromtheinsideout.us/ - "Revolution - Day #1 - Today we’re fasting from the thought that says, 'I Can’t Change.' We’ve all felt at times like we can’t change a certain (bad/negative attitude, behavior, feeling, reaction,) habit, or a characteristic about ourselves...That’s what this fast from wrong thinking is all about. As we change our thought patterns and mindsets, ANYTHING can change. And changing our mindsets is simply a process of replacing defective thoughts with biblical mindsets. So, if you’ve felt like you can’t change, you CAN...CHANGE IT TODAY:
1. Believe that the power to change is a GIFT. 2 Timothy 2:25 says God grants ‘repentance’, or ‘the power to change’, as a gift. The ability to experience lasting change in any area of our life is a gift from God.
2. Receive the gift of repentance or 'the gift to change', by FAITH. Believe that every good gift comes from the Father (James 1:17).
3. All change begins by believing you are loved by God. Romans 2:4b says, Don't you realize that it is God's loving kindness that is trying to lead you to Him and change the way you think and act? (God’s Word Translation).
4. Notice in that verse His love & kindness changes the way we think; THEN it changes the way we act. All lasting change begins by surrendering my thought life to the Word of God (Romans 12:2).
5. Believe in the process that leads to progress. Don’t worry if it doesn’t happen right away. Jesus touched the blind man once, than touched him again, before he was completely healed (Mark 8:22-26).
6. Re-define yourself ONLY as what God says about you. Disconnect from past definition of your habits, traits and limitations. You are being changed into His image.
(2 Corinthians 3:18)
THINK IT & SAY IT (out loud): 'God has given me the gift to change. I can change my habits, emotions and life by changing the way I think. I submit to the process of renewing my mind, and I expect divine progress and supernatural change. I believe the love that God has for me, and that produces change in me. I refuse to accept past definitions and limitations of myself. As I embrace God’s view of me through the mirror of His Word, I am being changed into His image, in Jesus’ Name.' In His Great Love, Gregory Dickow"

Edwards, Nita -
"His mind drew back to that day, 20 years ago, when the 8 faces appeared on his wall.
He recalled each man's face, and recalled meeting each of the 7.But the final face, the woman...'That's the face I saw in my vision!...That girl was only 4 years old in 1957 when I saw the vision...Can she have a role in the Asian revival?'...By some miracle, this hopeless paralytic girl was going to be an instrument of revival in Asia. Now, finally he, Colton, could declare his vision. He could share the fascinating promise of God with each of the 8 people...Nita was unimpressed! She was dying of myelitis, a creeping paralysis that was destroying her limbs and vital organs, and, apart from that, she had always been cynical about visions and dreams and voices. The story Colton told her really bore no relevance to her. 'God is going to heal you,' Colton insisted. 'You're going to have an impact on all of Asia'...'I'm not asking for healing any more,' she told the Lord each day. 'I'm not asking to be taken home to heaven. Just tell me what you created me for, and do anything you like with me'...One day Nita asked her attendant to help her read a few verses in the Bible...She was stopped in her tracks by Isaiah 42:6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles. If He had promised to strengthen her, to hold her hand, then why not trust Him fully? - leave the hospital and get an apartment? It was absurd - she was a total vegetable, physically...Loved ones and friends felt shunned and hurt. They could not understand that it was a spiritual thing, where God wanted Nita to rely totally on Him...Life had changed abruptly with the move to the apartment...
Suddenly, without warning or fanfare, at about 4 o'clock she heard a voice. It was a man speaking to her in a soft, but authoritative tone. It was the most powerful tone she had ever heard. 'Nita, I'm going to raise you up to make you a witness to Asia.' She was startled. If she had been able to, she would have jumped. She had thought she was alone in the room. Where had that voice come from? It said further: 'I'm going to heal you on Friday the 11th of February.' Nita's heart pounded. She was sure no one was in the room. She had never heard that voice before. She felt an uncanny twinge in her spirit. But she knew better than to be fooled into thinking the Lord had actually spoken to her in an audible voice. She rolled her eyes around the room as far as she could see. The voice had come from behind her, so she couldn't see who was there. But someone must be there! She struggled for the call button and buzzed for the attendant. If there was a man in the room, she wanted to know...She prayed a hard-nosed, practical prayer, 'Lord, I've heard this voice. If it's Yours, I want a confirmation.' She felt suddenly awkward, being so bold with the Almighty Creator Who had just promised to heal her and done so in an audible voice. But she thought of Gideon, laying out his fleece, so decided to press on with it. 'I want to hear the promise again,' she prayed bravely. 'Let other people hear it too'...
Ted flew a collapsible wheelchair in from England...'Let's try out this new wheelchair, Nita.' Michaele pushed her around the garden a few times, then they left for the church...
A message in tongues, familiar in Pentecostal services, cut through the service like a knife, arresting the attention of the people assembled there. As the last sounds echoed into the rafters, Syvelle Phillips lifted his voice and began declaring the interpretation. Only Nita had heard the phrases before: 'God will raise you up to be a witness to all of Asia. His word to you is true. Trust Him. He will not lead you astray. He will glorify Himself through you.' Nita's heart began to leap with joy. It was true. She had heard from God. He had confirmed it - here, before 1,400 people, honoring her request to hear it in public. The very words God had said...'Father, you told me the day and the date,' she said simply. 'Please, don't keep me waiting all day. Please tell me the time too.' She half-expected to hear the voice again, but she heard nothing. Instead, a silent inner voice spoke to her heart: she would be healed at 3:30 in the afternoon. Nita thought she would burst with excitement. She had the date and the hour now - February 11 at 3:30 p.m.
She was going to be healed by the power of God, and she was going to watch it happen.
(The following week at church) Suddenly a message in tongues split the air, and again the interpretation rang clearly through the sanctuary. A message miraculously similar to the first one. Nita could hardly believe the great love of her Heavenly Father in giving her not 1, but 2 confirmations...Nita knew, as they jostled her down the aisle and out to the car, that it was one of the last times she would be borne like this, like luggage going where someone else wanted it to go...God had given her the supernatural gift of faith.
For the new Nita, the healing had already happened. All that remained was the gathering of the evidence."

DVD is for those who want to come under the covering of this ministry. Presentation explains that our thoughts speed up/accelerate/go-faster when they line up with God's faster invisible supernatural thoughts. This thought alignment allows God's will to be done on earth.

Maurice believed that he needed spiritual mentoring and remembered someone who he thought could fill that need.
Maurice: "I felt I needed to call her, but I didn't have her number. I forgot her name... So I cried out to God. I said 'God, what is... How can I...What's her name? What's her number?' I heard the Lord. He said 'This is the number'. He repeated it to me. Audibly, I heard the number, so I wrote it down...I called the number."
Sid: "How many times did God give you this number in your head?"
Maurice: "Actually I heard a voice 3 or 4 times. I said to wait, because I had to go get a pen and write it down.'
Sid: "Listen, he calls this phone number, and it is this person, who then takes him to places where he can get set free. And through a gradual process, he became a free man."

Insecurity/unbelief often expose one's lack of salvation. Those who are saved can hear God's voice/mind/directives/thoughts. One needs to tune in/up/into God's signals via dreams/visions/atmospheres via His voice/translator/communicator the Holy Spirit.
We MUST invite/worship/fellowship/have a relationship with God's Holy Spirit. We must dismiss any angel claiming to be a conveyor of God's truth, if it contradicts scripture.
We cannot hoard God's benefits/ blessings/gifts/fruits. We need to give Him much glory, tithe, and generously share His benefits with others.

Journaling one's thoughts in half hour increments, can be critiqued by one's spiritual mentor for validity. (It is very important to have a trusted spiritual advisor, especially in the case where one is on psychiatric meds.)

Virkler, Mark http://www.walk-this-way.com/4_keys_virkler.htm - 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice
Key #4 - Journaling, the writing out of our prayers and God's answers, provides a great new freedom in hearing God's voice. God told Habakkuk to record the vision and inscribe it on tablets...(Hab. 2:2). It had never crossed my mind to write out my prayers and God's answers as Habakkuk did at God's command...
I called the process 'journaling,' and I began experimenting with it. I discovered it to be a fabulous facilitator to clearly discerning God's inner, spontaneous flow, because as I journaled I was able to write in faith for long periods of time, simply believing it was God. I did not have to test it as I was receiving it (which jams one's receiver), because I knew that when the flow was over I (and/or my spiritual covering) could go back and test and examine it carefully, making sure that it lined up with Scripture...
Put a smile on your face, sit back comfortably, get out your pen and paper, and turn your attention toward God in praise and worship, seeking His face. As you write out your question to God and become still, fixing your gaze on Jesus, Who is present with you, you will suddenly have a very good thought in response to your question. Don't doubt it, simply write it down. Later, as you read your journaling, you, too, will be blessed to discover that you are indeed dialoguing with God...
First read through at least the New Testament (preferably, the entire Bible). Nor should one attempt this unless he is submitted to solid, spiritual leadership. All major directional moves that come through journaling should be submitted before being acted upon." (Virkler teaches us how to reject thoughts that do NOT line up with scripture and how to replace such stinking thinking with God thoughts.)

Willis, Laurette - Chapter 5 The God Who Liked My Jokes - from Sid Roth's Truth Seekers - www.sidroth.org - 'For 3 years, God met me in that (bedroom) closet...I would see a flash of light. Then a bright scene appeared on the inside of the closet door as if it were a movie screen. In this open-eyed vision, I stood behind a curtain and watched an adult version of myself onstage in front of a vast outdoor audience...People were worshiping God...After a few seconds, the vision would fade and I would Hear a comforting voice over my right shoulder, 'Everything is going to be all right.' In my heart, I knew this was God's voice. His voice hugged me and gave me pace. 'Everything's gonna be all right,' I repeated after Him...I opened the door and stepped out of the closet to face the world again. This happened many times over a 3 year period between the ages of 3-6."

Amen, Dr Daniel -
Kill the ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) That Invade Your Brain
"The thoughts that go through your mind, moment by moment, have a significant impact on how your brain works. Research by Mark George, MD and colleagues at the National Institutes of Health demonstrated that happy, hopeful thoughts had an overall calming effect on the brain, while negative thoughts inflamed brain areas often involved with depression and anxiety. Your thoughts matter...
I often teach my patients how to metaphorically kill the ANTs that invade their minds. ANTs stand for Automatic Negative Thoughts. The ANTs are automatic. They just happen. But they can ruin your whole day, maybe even your life. For example, I once treated a college student who was ready to drop out of school. He thought he was stupid because didn't do well on tests. When his IQ (intelligence level) was tested, however, we discovered that he had an IQ of 135 (in the superior range). He just wasn't a good test taker. I have identified 9 different kinds of ANT species, or ways your thoughts can distort incoming information to make you feel bad. Here are 4 ANT species:
Mind reading - predicting you know that another person is thinking something negative about you without them telling you. I often tell my patients that, 'A negative look from someone else may mean nothing more than he or she is constipated. You don't know. You can't read minds. I have 25 years of training in human behavior and I still can't read anyone's mind.'
Fortune telling - predicting a bad outcome to a situation before it has occurred. Your mind makes happen what it sees. Unconsciously, predicting failure will often cause failure. For example, if you say, 'I know I will fail the test,' then you will likely not study hard enough and fail the test...
Always or never thinking - this is where you think in words like always, never, every time, or everyone. These thoughts are overgeneralizations which can alter behavior. For example, I have a friend who asked out an attractive woman. She turned him down. He told himself that no one will ever go out with him again. This ANT prevented him from asking out anyone else for over 9 months.
Guilt beatings - being overrun by thoughts of 'I should have done... I'm bad because…I must do better at… I have to…)' Guilt is powerful at making us feel bad. It is a lousy motivator of behavior...
You do not have to believe every thought that goes through your head. It's important to think about your thoughts to see if they help you or they hurt you. Unfortunately, if you never challenge your thoughts you just 'believe them' as if they were true. ANTs can take over and infest your brain. Develop an internal anteater to hunt down and devour the negative thoughts that are ruining your life. Once you learn about your thoughts, you can chose to think good thoughts and feel good or you can choose to think bad thoughts and feel lousy. You can train your thoughts to be positive and hopeful or you can just allow them to be negative and upset you. That's right, it's up to you! You can learn how to change your thoughts and optimize your brain. One way to learn how to change your thoughts is to notice them when they are negative and talk back to them. If you can correct negative thoughts, you take away their power over you. When you think a negative thought without challenging it, your mind believes it and your brain (mind/emotions/body) reacts to it."
[PS. If something negative is true, then repent immediately to Jesus and get on with life. If the negative thoughts continue, then they are lies, as one has repented (and discontinued doing the wrong thing) + God has forgiven. Sin is ANYTHING which we DO which contradicts the heart/instructions of God in Scripture. Sin in not so much wrong thinking as acting on stinking thinking. Negative thinking can trigger/turn on a shower of negative emotions which tempt/prod/ encourage us to act inappropriately.
The mind/flesh is sort of like a balloon. We can fill it full of negativity (wrong thinking) or full of the Holy Spirit (Scripture/praise/ worship/thankfulness) and rise to new heights. (God can be our helium.)
Negative thoughts can trigger the release of hormones/chemicals that will affect mood &/or behavior negatively; likewise the body's release of certain hormones/chemicals can also adversely affect mood and negative thought. Mind, body, and spirit are intimately intertwined. The evil spirit, the Holy Spirit, and/or the human spirit can and will affect us. Therefore, scripture admonishes us to continually filter/test every spirit.
Finally, those of us prone to negativity, can rely on many resources, including vitamins and/or meds to offset the negative biochemical excess in our daily living, until such time that our healing has begun or our emotional malady has fled.
Some people are like saints, until they come face to face with the root of their problem. Then they flee, rather than face up to it, rather than confronting it, owning it, repenting of it in them and their ancestors, rejecting and turning from it, rather than maturing, growing up, rather than continuing on in life as an immature, emotional child or basket case.]

Awareness Penguin books publisher
Stout, a Boston psychologist, shares/showcases her clients as a composites to preserve identities. Her section 3 Split Identity helps clarify just exactly how a MPD/DID person might behave + how the medical society in DSM 4 perceives/ diagnoses MPD/DID. Stout believes these personalities are survival/coping identities. (For those who believe in evil spirits, the book strengthens the concept of the possibility of demons speaking through the mouth of some of the victims/patients.)
Stout, "Do they (the alters/identities/personalities/voices/thoughts) have conversations with each other in your head?" Patient, "Constantly...Sometimes I'd do almost anything to drown them out. Sometimes the vodka helps. What they argue about mainly is that they all want to come out all the time...You know about Abe. He wants to die. He talks to me a lot. It's really hard to keep him in. Sometimes I think I can't do it."
Chapter 6 Replaced
"Apart from prison, a psychiatric hospital is the only place in our society where all of an adult's rights may be legally taken away." Author neglected to mention guardianship/ power of attorney and other legal maneuvers. "Dissociative identities just are, whether we believe in them or not...Garrett's childhood was too terrifying for any child to survive. So he did not survive it as only one child; he became several children, and these children divvied up the horror, and made it survivable. The several children all lived inside Garrett's head, his various selves...Unlike Julia's ego states, who remained hidden even to Julia, Garrett's ego states occasionally replaced him entirely, thought and acted in his stead...
His personalities eventually became hard to control, difficult to 'keep in', even when he was in public.
Worst of all, they began to come out during work, identifying themselves by name, and attempting to speak with an employer...I think if names just weren't involved, if alters came out but didn't use their names, most people would still never know.'"

There are 6 typical dissociate reactions which can be "triggered (involuntarily propelled)" : 1-brief phasing out, 2-habitual dissociate reactions, 3-dissociation from feeling states, 4-intrusion of dissociated ego states (anger, self-protection, suspicion, accusation), 5-demifuge (detachment, "mental and emotional fogginess that seems to have a life of its own. The fog can be thin and annoying, or it can be anesthetizing pea-souper...Some feel overwhelmed by fatigue, defeated by it."), and 6-fugue "is a total blackout...(dissociative amnesia)".

Conventional Science on Internet
Tatlin’s Thought Cloud - http://www.militantesthetix.co.uk/waltbenj/thoughtcloud.html - "While Lenin himself was still alive, clouds were conceived in just such a way: as a surface for the projection of ideas. Tatlin’s tower, a Monument to the 3rd International, was designed in 1920 as a landmark structure for the young Soviet Union. Achieved only in model form, its mobile twin helixes jut peaklike into the sky, a tribute to machinic, dynamic modernity, At its summit was a revolving information centre, which incorporated a projector. On overcast days this beamed messages onto the clouds. Tatlin’s clouds are the scurrying clouds of utopia. They are the screens of a brave new world, a screen for thoughts, commands and provocations. Glance upwards and immediately be on-message."
Voices in People's Heads More Complex Than Previously Thought

"One of the large...studies...of
auditory hallucinations, commonly referred to as voice hearing, found that the
majority of voice-hearers hear multiple voices with distinct character-like
qualities, with many also experiencing physical effects on their bodies.
The study also confirmed that both people with and without psychiatric diagnoses hear voices."

In heaven there are animals and even some of our pets, whose thoughts (or language) we can discern and who can discern our thoughts (or at least our verbal responses)' Check out 11/13/09 TV broadcast. http://www.sidroth.org/asx/mv11-13-09.asx Much of what Jesus discerned/knew was mental insight downloaded from His spirit man, rather than observing/ hearing His Father in heaven. Jesus gives numerous scriptural illustrations. - CD is awesome.

Recognize, renounce, reject, and replace self-damaging thoughts.
http://www.net-burst.net/guilty/uncontrollable-blasphemy.htm - For those who have OCD issues. Yes, we can dismiss, overlook, ignore compulsions/invasive thoughts, but if so we need to replace with scripture/God's thoughts and emotions/ feelings. Scripture says, yes, to reject Satan and all his lies, so ignoring is incomplete without replacement with the good healthy things, like focusing on God, all the positives in life (like being able to walk/speak/sing/work, whatever is a positive in our life, concentrating on the majors and ignoring the minors or thorns. A chemical imbalance is often just a medical or insurance loophole for those wishing to profit via drugs, especially when the medicine side effects become more incapacitating than the illness/label/diagnosis.)
NIGHT TALK - Sometimes God will talk with us via night thoughts that come to us when we are in bed asleep or half asleep. It is often easier for us to hear and comprehend Him when we are not distracted during the day. So ask Him questions often, EXPECTING Him to reply. Then accept/acknowledge His response and thank Him in the morning.
Meditation - Imagination
Goddard, Neville -
http://www.thepowerofawareness.org/ - Extremely
be reminded to align one's thoughts with Father God's heart and words in holy scripture,
and then to give Him ALL the credit for each victory. Do NOT even take 1% credit.
Basic premise is when lying on bed before sleep to imagine/visualize self/other as well or having desire, to the extent one can FEEL/experience his wish as being true. Do this daily/ consistently, until the dream becomes a reality. Then give God the giver high praises.
[Final chapter is blasphemy/heresy/delusion/pride, and clarifies the mistake author (&/or Satan) is attempting to perpetrate upon readers. The I AM is Father/Son/Holy-Spirit: Trinity, not each of us, a created spirit who is given a soul and body at arrival in the womb.] Chapter Twenty One + Chapter Twenty Two + Chapter Twenty Three
seem to be only viable/safe reading in book, which is otherwise occult.

Peale, Norman Vincent -
http://www.durbinhypnosis.com/peale.htm - A Splinter in the Unconscious: "I've never understood why the
consequences of sin aren't glaringly obvious to everyone. A moral
transgression is like a splinter in the unconscious mind. Unless that splinter
is removed, it is going to fester. And what form does this festering take?
1st of all, it damages the self-esteem of the individual. He knows he has done
something wrong, and so he doesn't like himself quite as much as he did before.
Next, it begins to affect his performance in subtle but unmistakable ways. A
deep, unacknowledged sense of guilt, a built-in censor, will tell that person
that so far he may have been doing pretty well, but now, because he has done
wrong, he doesn't deserve to do so well anymore. The voice of conscience,
the censor within the mind, will say, 'You are a wrongdoer, my friend, you are a
sinner." It may even get inelegant and say, 'You are a dirty dog and you deserve
to be punished. If no one else will punish you, I hereby order you to
punish yourself.' Sometimes the punishment is quite subtle in that it
takes the form of inefficiency or loss of creativity. Sometimes it appears as
ill health. Most often it reveals itself as a growing feeling of inadequacy and
inferiority. So if such feelings trouble you, perhaps it would be a good idea
to take a ruthless moral inventory of your
self and if necessary change (p 39)
some area of your life that you may find not as it should be.
It was Milton who wrote: 'The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell and a hell of Heaven.' Image yourself as a worthwhile person: act as if you were someone worthy of admiration and respect; gradually that is what you come to be.
What you can image, you will be, in the long run. (p 40)
But there is also such a thing as negative imaging. The most common name for it is worry. When we worry we are using imaging, all right, but we are pointing it in the wrong direction. When we worry about our health, or our children, or our jobs, or our future, we are giving these fears a degree of reality by allowing them to pervade and color our thinking. And if they dominate our minds, they may also affect our actions. Just as affirmative imaging tends to actualize desirable events sooner or later, so negative imaging, or worry , tends to create conditions in which the unpleasant thing that is worried about has a better chance of coming to pass.
The Bible, that extraordinary Book of Wisdom, clearly recognizes this. In the Book of Job, perhaps the most ancient of all biblical writings, Job cries plaintively: 'The thing which 1 greatly feared is come upon me.' (Job 3:25). Of course it did. He imaged this dire happening. He greatly feared something, and finally it happened. Haven't you known of cases yourself where people display excessive fears of some misfortune and then that misfortune seems to seek them out? I know I have.
The Bible never mentions a problem without offering a solution. There are constant exhortations to cheerfulness, to hope, to faith - all tested antidotes to worry. 'A merry heart doeth good like a medicine' (Proverbs 17:22). 'Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not' (Isaiah 35:4). 'My peace I give unto you' (John 14:27). Trust God, the Bible keeps saying, because the more you trust the less you will have to worry about."

Kerr, Kat - 7 hours of Kat Kerr describing Heaven, from her many trips (Comp#2) @ http://jesusstories.info/?s=kat+kerr&search=Search - Kat eats her one meal a day around midnight and then prays approx 4 hrs to 5 AM when she sleeps until 9 AM (4 hrs). After pursing God since the age of 4 her room becomes engulfed in glory light from where she eventually (approx.age 48 - video not dated) began daily visits to heaven.
"Then I was aware of another (holy) being walking into my cubicle.
He walked around the end of my bed, pulled up a chair on my right side and sat down.
He was dressed in a brown tweed suit and felt kind of rough, not like you might expect to see an angel, in a white or blue robe or looking golden or something similar.
He had a swarthy appearance with olive skin and dark hair.
This man just sat down and bowed his head.
I remember feeling a deep peace as I looked at him. I thought 'who are you?'
I heard him say 'Peter'. It seems that you can communicate through your thoughts with the angelic realm, not necessarily speaking using your voice. At 1st he had felt like my husband, Russell because he is an outside man, not an office worker,
if you know what I mean. When he said 'Peter' I knew why I had thought he felt like my husband because Peter had been a fisherman.
Hebrews 12 v 1 says that we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses...(those born-again who have predeceased us) We are surrounded by them 24/7. Later I was recounting to my husband what had happened and he said that he had gone home that night and picked up his Bible and began to read in the book of Peter and was reading out loud."
