YOUR MIND

YOUR MIND IS INVISIBLE. 

The Holy Spirit will work with the spiritual you.

It is up to you to keep your mind clear of "brain infringements" and Satan's input.

THE BRAIN

IS NOT YOUR MIND. IT IS FLESH

BRAIN MIND COLLAGE june canva.png

The brain has mental disorders, brain traumas and stress. It's attention is on "acts of the flesh" as it says in Galatians 5:19-21 

BODY FLESH TRAITS.png

ACTS OF THE FLESH

WE ARE 3: 1. YOUR OWN HUMAN SPIRIT, 2. THE HOLY SPIRIT which is indwelling you, and 3. THE BODY/BRAIN

I knew I had to transform my mind. Transforming & Renewing of my mind  Romans 12:2 (below) is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do and continue to do. 

I know I will never get the body or its brain (flesh) to understand the spiritual side of me, because of

1 Corinthians 2:14.

We are appended/joined to the body/brain which is full of genetic sins and various recordings - including sicknesses - since the beginning of man  (See 'THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND').

The brain stores billions  and billions of data. (See noted Neuroscientist Dr. Carolyn Leaf)  It thinks in pictures and has energy manifestations called thoughts, which sometimes we confuse with our thoughts.

This body/brain is a mega survival recording system of all of its current and preceding genetic past recorded on it's cells. (DNA) all the way from Adam and Eve

The brain has recorded everything, including sicknesses and all the evils since Adam and Eve.

This makes a lot of sense if we look at the brain as the body's computer which works to help the body function better and it is very important to the body for it's survival because it can depend upon what it has stored from past life experiences, including SICKNESSES AND BODY PROBLEMS, in order to have solutions to its present life perceived problems. 

The brain is recording all the time.  It is constantly storing past times in a very orderly time-sequenced fashion.  (See noted Neuroscientist Dr. Carolyn Leaf).

 

EXAMPLE: A person has an illness/pain.  The brain, by way of finding a solution,  will look into it's time-orderly recorded genetic past and find similar experiences and bring those experiences to the present to view.  This means that we get to experience them too.  The apparency can be that the illness/pain gets worse.

 

 These picture recordings will not cement unless we decide that we are sick or sicker.

 

SOLUTION:  For us to realize that the brain/body's past experiences are not our experiences.  The body/brain is a completely separate entity with its own way of operating.

 

My way to handle the body/brain (flesh) is to immerse it in music, positive energy and happy movies.  Also, pictures of health because it records everything.

It does respond.  It does obey.  It does get happier and it can become healthy - in time - as it records good health and happy times over and over again. 

 

If we do a good job we can tell it certain things such as: "You are healthy, youthful and prosperous" and if we believe, it will believe. Mine usually wants to look at itself in a mirror when I tell it this, because the body/brain/flesh operates upon the 5 senses: SEE, FEEL, TASTE, SMELL, TOUCH and HEAR. 

 

The body/brain is programmable, it can, and does become convinced in the positive -  purely by the amount of positive around. However, the body/brain will NEVER become spiritual.  The spiritual and the body/brain are natural enemies. (See Romans 8:5-7 below)

WHAT DO WE ALSO KNOW?
 

God gave His Sovereignty (Rulership and Authority) to mankind starting with Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:28.  (See 'THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND').

 

God sent his "Advocate, the Holy Spirit" to help us when we got reborn. (See 2 Corinthians 1:21-22See also 'HOLY SPIRIT').

THE MIND BELONGS TO THE HUMAN SPIRIT

 

 

1 Corinthians 2:16; But we have the mind of Christ.

Philippians 2:5; Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,

Philippians 2:2; make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.

1 Corinthians 2:11; For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? 

Ephesians 4:23; and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

Romans 12:2; Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

It is obvious from these verses that the human spirit has a mind of its own which is not the brain (flesh), and is not the Holy Spirit, and is not God.

That this human spirit is self-determined and has been given the ability to choose, think, express, and decide its own actions for which it will be judged on Judgement Day.  Otherwise, why would there be a Judgement Day? Because we would all have been controlled by God and it was God that made all the decisions, which makes no sense.


If we are wise, as Paul says we will "crucify the flesh" (not listen to the body's brain messages/thoughts). Galatians 5:24.

Our human spirit and our mind can be renewed, but it takes work.  

 

(See 'HUMAN SPIRIT') 

YOUR BRAIN IS WHAT YOU PUT IN IT

Whether we believe in our sickness, watch a  horror movie, or see a bloody event, or....?, the brain is recording them in pictures
(which is what it does with the life it perceives for survival purposes)

This means our brain now has a bunch of stuff including negatives and sicknesses recorded, which it refers to constantly when making decisions, suppositions and conclusions in order to establish what the next best action/response for the body should be.   

This also means brain-generated irrational-thought-patterns/worries can infect our mind
 and make it more difficult to stay in faith. See 'FAITH'.   

I think we all have to agree that the brain is FLESH. I think it is important for us to remember that the flesh (we have inherited from birth) is full of sin genetically Galatians 5:19-21 (above), so God's Holy Spirit, especially in the light of 1 Corinthians 2:14 (below), has no option but to work through our God-given human spirit (YOU) within all of us. 

See '
THE HOLY SPIRIT' and 'THE HUMAN SPIRIT' and 'WHO ARE WE?'.

 

Romans 8:5-7; Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

Galatians 5:24;  Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

One of Satan/demons main operating bases is to infect the brain/body with it's evil intentions. If we crucify the flesh then that would help - because crucifying means we are no longer listening to the brain.

I have to say, in one respect an abused upbringing was of help to me, because I had to ignore the brain because it was so messed up. I had to ascend to a state above and away from the brain and ignore it (crucify the flesh). I had no idea that one of the side benefits would help me move into the realm of the human spirit, which I had only a vague idea about.

Romans 7:18;  For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out

Romans 7:21-23; So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.

Here, Apostle Paul who wrote this verse is expressing himself about his "sinful nature" and having a "desire to do good,", but that he "cannot carry it out".

Paul carries on to say he delights "in God's law" but he sees "another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me."

I don't know about you, but I find the same problem.  My body is adamantly against my spirit  and my mind.  We are at war.  It is like my body doesn't want something else ruling it.  It wants to be on its own to do what it would like to do.

We need to stop listening to the brain which we know is "flesh".

According to Romans 8:5-7; (above) if we believe that we are a brain/body/flesh and live "in accordance with it", then we have the following attributes: 

  1. have our "minds set on what the flesh desires". 

  2. Can be governing our mind, and for us, "is death".

  3. Is "hostile to God". 

  4. "Cannot please God."

LIGHT BRIGHT YELLOW pngwing.png

1 Corinthians 15:50; I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

  1. The flesh (body/brain) "cannot inherit the kingdom of God" (as some think). 

  2.  "nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable." The body/brain are both perishable and therefore cannot inherit the kind of body which is imperishable, which we will all get when we get a glorified body.

The person without, and with the Holy Spirit

Colossians 3:10; And have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its creator.

Philippians 2:2-4; then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.

I watch carefully to stay on the path of these verses.  They are a guide for me. I had to renew my mind and rid myself of Satan's evils and intentions, which as I got closer to God, got stronger and stronger.   However, Satan only has the power we grant him.  (see 'SATAN, WHO HE IS')

Proverbs 6:30-31; People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving.

31Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house.

Satan and his demons work very hard trying to ruin your life.

 

Satan is a thief, murderer, and liar.  We can demand he pay us back 7-fold what he has taken from us.

Get the justice you deserve!

THE BODY

 

We are trained to cater to the body:  Does it have enough of the right kind of food?  Does it have enough sleep?  Does it look and dress correctly?   How about exercise? .... and on, and on, and on, and on, and on!

We listen to the body/brain's thoughts.  We analyze them.  We make them our own.

What we have to know is that the body is decaying day by day and we are the human spirit, the Holy Spiri and God are eternal.  To depend upon the body which is losing it's faculties and it's functions  doesn't make much sense.  That is the way of Arthritis, Alzheimer's, poor Eyesight, poor Hearing, and various internal problems.

I cannot begin to tell you how vital  it is (especially as we get older) to depend upon our human spirit and the Holy Spirit which are both within us if you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  (See 'THE HUMAN SPIRIT' & 'THE HOLY SPIRIT')

 

I see so many people running to their doctor instead of God.  Then to make matters worse,  they start on medications, and then more medications for the side effects of the previous medications.  It is a downward hill from there.  

A lot of people believe that God controls everything and He controls our lives and the world in general.   (See 'CONTROLLING GOD?')

Plus, they do not know how to pray for their healing if they need it.  (See 'HEALING FOR YOU'),

 

SUMMARY: YOU, THE BRAIN, AND YOUR MIND

Your mind is unseen but can be experienced, and is a combination of energies and intentions.  See picture above. It can be very confusing:
 

  1. Who we are is a human spirit given to each of us in the womb.  (See 'THE HUMAN SPIRIT'),
     

  2. Who we are, (human spirit) has intentions which we send to our mind which we all have. (See above)
     

  3. The Holy Spirit (from God - see 'THE HOLY SPIRIT'is not the same as the human spirit.  We can all have the Holy Spirit, if we ask for it, from Jesus.  The Holy Spirit works and helps our human spirit.  It does not work with the brain/body/flesh. 
     

  4. The body/brain/flesh, its emotions and intentions can also enter your mind.
     

  5. Satan/demons evil intentions can also go into your mind, though they usually like to work and worry the body and its brain. (See 'SATAN, WHO HE IS').
     

  6. The flesh (brain/body) cannot go to heaven because it "cannot inherit the kingdom of God" nor can it "inherit the imperishable" because it is perishable  (1 Corinthians 15:50 above).
     

  7. If we were just body/brain/flesh, the "Spirit" (Holy Spirit) cannot work with us because the body/brain/flesh does not understand the things of the Holy Spirit "but considers them foolishness" (1 Corinthians 2:14 above). 

Jesus (God in the flesh) probably realized when He was here on Earth that people needed Him with them always to heal and help them.  That is what the Holy Spirit is.  It is God (through Jesus) on the inside of us - when we have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior - waiting to help and heal us.  (See 'HOLY SPIRIT').  We do need FAITH and BELIEF in Him to be able to use the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit to control our mind, our brain, and of course Satan/demons.

Watch Dr. Carolyn Leaf on the subject of your mind and the brain.

She also states that the mind is not the brain.

WHY SHOULD YOU WATCH DR. CAROLINE LEAF? Dr. Caroline Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist with a Masters and PhD in Communication Pathology and a BSc Logopaedics (study of changes in organ and body tissues), specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology. Since the early 1980s, she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. 

 

I was so glad to find her because it supported my research on the brain over many years and also filled in some missing pieces.

It's hard to get some of your more spiritual ideas across to a person without the Holy Spirit.  I had a glorious marriage for 14 years because we were on the same page.  Death separated us, but we will always love each other. 
 

2 Corinthians 10:5; We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Romans 12:2; Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Galatians 5:19-21; The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
