The Captivating Power of Leading Our Thoughts Captive

Daily Prompts: Captivating

The Opening

        This Bible Study will be captivating to you.  I will teach how we have a power that is so great that it leads to a captivating experience.  This is because this power allows us to lead our thoughts captive.  What does this mean?  It means that we control our thinking to keep Satan from controlling us right into Hell with him.

You either submit to God or you will be controlled by Satan.  You are either free with God or you are captive by Satan.  You either worship God 100% all of the time or you worship Satan 100% all of the time.  What kind of power is able to break Satan’s captive hold on you?  The power of God is able to do so as I will show below:

The Scriptures and The Teaching

2 Corinthians 10:1-6 NKJV

[-1-]  Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ — who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you.  [-2-]  But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.  [-3-]  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.

[-4-]  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,  [-5-]  casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,  [-6-]  and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

        You see that the Apostle Paul is pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ because he is lowly in presence with us.  This means that he is opening up his heart to get us to realize that there is another way to live.  If you are not a True Christian, then you are a captive of Satan and his slave.  The Apostle Paul is pleading with you to let your actions speak so loud that others will be shamed when they say you are doing things that are of the flesh.

You are not to retaliate in any way against any one for any reason.  That is walking in the flesh.  Even though you are a creature of flesh you are not to wage war as those whose souls are captives to Satan in the flesh.  Your weapons of warfare as a True Christian are spiritual in nature and are powered by The Holy Spirit living inside of you in your life.  They are so mighty in God that they will cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.

Casting down arguments means that the lies and slander that others say against you falsely will be exposed by your actions being righteous.  This leads to those arguments against you to be cast down because they are worthless.  Every thing that thinks of itself to be high will be cast down for going against the knowledge of God that He has given you via The Holy Spirit living in your life.

This in turn leads you to be able to have the power to lead your thoughts captive, which means you don’t allow them to control your life, but that you submit your life to God.  This is how you are able to destroy strongholds, which are Satan’s devices that he uses against you to keep you as his slave.  God can set you free when you truly repent of your sins and start worshiping Him 100% all the time.

The end result is that God is ready to punish the disobedience of those who speak evil against you because of your obedience to Him and being a light to the world as Jesus Christ taught you to be in this life.  This means that the curses that God has laid out in The Bible will fall upon those who speak evil of you since you are a child of God.  This can be anything from them suffering pain, to losing their jobs, to being afflicted with any number of health problems, to losing their house, to losing their children, and even their own lives as well as casting them into Hell for their evil sins.

If you don’t want this to happen to those who speak against you, then you are not a True Christian at all.  A True Christian will always want the will of God in their life as well as the lives of others regardless if that means that others are blessed for living for Him or if they will be cursed for going against what The Bible teaches.  This is True Christian Bible Study and not False Christian Sugar Coating.

The Closing

        That is all for this Bible Study.  I know this will be impactful to those of you who read this and many will be shocked at the hard-hitting truths I have presented to you via The Holy Spirit guiding me as I submit to His will in my life because His will is the same as God’s will for my life.  I will never be politically correct, I will never sugar-coat The Bible, I will never white-wash The Bible, and I will never stop preaching the truth of The Bible at any time.  Please share this with everyone you know and God bless you all.
