In our last article, we saw that the liberty of the mind is obtained by the life of God enlightening the mind and making it able to receive, process and apply information with wonderful accuracy, innovation and creativity.
This week, will look at scriptural examples of men who allowed power of God’s life and Spirit to liberate their minds.
A very good example of men who allowed God’s life to liberate their minds and give them wonderfully efficient mental capacities are Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
Daniel 1:4 KJV: Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.
Daniel 1:17 KJV: As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
Daniel 1:20 AMP: And in all matters of wisdom and understanding concerning which the king asked them, he found them ten times better than all the [learned] magicians and enchanters who were in his whole realm.
Daniel 5:14 AMP: I have heard of you, that the Spirit of the holy God [or gods] is in you and that light and understanding and superior wisdom are found in you.
As the flood waters, symbolizing the power of the Spirit without measure, continue to rise, raising the church in the ark above the ‘tops of the mountains’ as this year 2013 unfolds, the church in the ark will experience a liberty of the mind that will give us a degree of wisdom far superior to the corrupted wisdom Satan gives to the world.
Ezekiel 28:12 NIV: “Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Ezekiel 28:17 NIV: Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.
James 3:15 KJV: This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
1 John 4:4 MKJV: You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
This new liberty of mind in the church will give innovative wisdom in all areas of human endeavor, causing the church to be truly head and not tail and experience a level of prosperity that has never been seen before.
Proverbs 8:12 KJV: I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
Isaiah 45:3 NIV: I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
Deuteronomy 28:12-13 NIV: The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. (13) The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
In this scripture (Dt. 28.12-13) above in the manifold wisdom of God, the ‘open heavens’ symbolizes the free flow of God’s power from the 3rd heavens (2 Cor. 12.1) through the second and first heavens to us here on earth without any demonic force being able to hinder the flow (Dan. 10.12-13).
Also the ‘land’ is symbolic of the human heart (Mk. 4.13-20) and in particular the mind, receiving the ‘rain’ which is symbolic of the light of the teaching of God’s Word:
Deuteronomy 32:2 NIV: Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
Psalms 119:130 AMP: The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.
So let us continue, as 2013 progresses, to liberate our minds by the flow of the consistently increasing measure of the life of God into our minds by the blood (Heb. 13.20-21), the Word (1 Jn.2.5) and the Spirit (1 Jn. 4.12-13; 2 Cor. 3.17) as the flood waters of the Spirit without measure continue to rise, taking us above the mountains of the distorted, demonic, wisdom of this world.
1 Corinthians 1:19-20 KJV: For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. (20) Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
Ephesians 3:10 AMP: [The purpose is] that through the church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere.
