Knowledge & You
Hosea 4:6 (NKJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
Oh how important it is to grow in knowledge! I love learning but I love understanding even more. If I listen to teaching all day but don't understand any of it, it hasn't benefited me well. When we teach people in a way they can gain understanding over how something is done or why we have the processes we set in place, they will be able to transfer that knowledge to others so they too may understand.
Just a child will ask over and over, "why" questions, so we should ask the difficult "why's". Why is their so much evil in the world? Well for one, people are being destroyed because they don't have the knowledge they used to. They don't even want to have a civil debate, they just want to instill fear in those that disagree with them.
Why are there so many people for abortion? One reason is the enemy is out to kill, steal and destroy. By large companies lying to people about the truth of abortion, people are continuing to support it and vote for candidates that want your tax dollars to pay for these service under that disguise of "healthcare". We are getting to a place where many people say in their own words they worship Satan and enjoy killing babies. They have zero fear of the Lord and their minds have been handed over to the enemy.
Your mind is not the devil's playground! You must take your thoughts captive if they aren't in line with God's Holy Word! When you have wicked thoughts or negative thoughts come through your mind, filter them out! You have a free will to choose what you are thinking about. Proverbs 23 says for as a man thinks so is he. Whatever you think about is going to lead to how you speak and act. If someone has bad behavior, you can link it to their bad thought life. We must teach people who to think!
Over 170 years ago, the research of scientists showed that if we don't change the way we teach people to think, if we don't get rid of poor thinking, we are going to land in the intellectual dark ages.
In a DVD I was recently watching by Dr. Caroline Leaf, (that was released over 20 years ago) it was predicted that by the year 2020 we were going to be in another intellectual dark age even in the midst of a technology and information explosion because the quality of the information is not what it should be. This means information is increasing but knowledge is decreasing!
Knowledge management is the issue! Look where we are today! Never in my life did I think my kids would be raised in a culture where their peers believe men can get pregnant, transgendered men would be allowed to compete in women's sports, public restrooms would be for whoever wanted to creep inside and molest the innocent, the "elite" openly support satanic worship and rituals, and online questionnaires having more than 2 options for someone's gender. "Attack helicopter" and "Walmart bag" aren't a gender in case you were confused.
To think correctly we must think with the mind of Christ! We are uniquely designed by a Creative God that knows everything about you yet still loves you! He sent His Son to die in your place and take on your sins and suffering. Death has been defeated, shame has been removed, sins have been forgiven, there is nothing left to lose! Surrender your mind to Christ and take every evil thought captive in Jesus Name!
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NKJV) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 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.
Proverbs 23:7 (TPT) For as he thinks within himself, so is he. He will grudgingly say, “Go ahead and eat all you want,” but in his heart he resents the fact that he has to pay for your meal.
Genesis 1:27-28 (AMP) So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.”
