Did you know that everything you do, everything you see, everything you hear has been recorded in your mind. Today we hear so much bad news! People are doing evil things around the world. Pay close attention, things are programmed into our minds that we hear or see. With that thought, the Bible says to: bring every thought to the obedience of Christ. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).
When we allow ourselves to see things that are not good but evil, we allow corruption to enter our minds and thoughts. We may ask, “Why am I thinking such evil thoughts?” The answer is clear! Satan wants to corrupt our minds from godliness of Christ into the ungodliness of this world. 2 Corinthians 11:3 says: But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Why did God destroy the earth by flood? Genesis 6:5 says: And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Colossians 3:1-8 says: If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
God knows our hearts and our thoughts. Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Philippians 2:5-Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Romans 2:11-16-11 For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
