Message for June 1, 2014 from Pastor Jerry

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.” II Cor. 10:4(NKJV)
  There is no doubt that we are all soldiers doing battle in a hostile world. We are not at war with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers of the air. As occupational forces it is our duty to control and do business for the King.
  There is no unconquered territory there are no undefeated foes but there is still pockets of resistance that refuse to recognize the Lordship of Jesus. Their battlefield is the mind and they build strongholds from which they attack us and the things around us.
  These strongholds are built within the process of human thinking. Think about this. If every human being were in their right mind (thinking right) all human struggle would be done away with. Man and God would be at perfect peace and it would be like heaven on earth. That is called “having the mind of Christ.”
  The only thing between us and “perfect peace” is the way we think. Scripture says, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is fixed on you.” Have you lost your mind? Is it running wild with ungodly thoughts? I am not talking about immoral thoughts but ungodly ones. Ungodly thoughts are any thought that disagrees with the Word of God. Fear is an ungodly thought. Envy is an ungodly thought. Worry is an ungodly thought. Defeat and failure are ungodly thoughts. Are you getting the picture? Anything that doesn’t conform to God’s way of thinking is ungodly. Ungodly thinking gets you into serious problems but there is hope.
“”And do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Rom. 12:2
