The Lord has really been showing me some stuff today. On the soul front, He has been showing me that the soul is comprised of the spiritual mind and the natural mind by default, because the natural mind not only lets things in as the heart, but the spiritual mind expresses what it becomes through the spiritual mind. So, giving God your whole soul means giving God my natural mind, so that I can give Him my spiritual mind. The things Jesus said begin to make more sense:

Matthew 22:34-40
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
In this case the heart is the natural mind which must hear Hear God to be born again, the soul is both the heart and the mind (spiritual mind), and the mind representing the spiritual mind. That's the clearest I've ever seen this, so its a step in a good direction for me. Then the Lord reminded me of the tabernacle. In it there was the outer court, inner court and holiest of holies. Again this got even clearer, the inner court housed both the inner court and the holiest of holies. You already see where I'm going probably. Now this verse makes more sense:

Ephesians 3:14-21
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
The inner man is the part that houses the natural mind and the spiritual mind! The inner man can be called the soul of man, separate from the outer man all together. Then Paul talks about the breadth, length and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ. He just described the tabernacle that houses the outer and inner courts. The linen curtains which made up the outer walls of the tabernacle where a certain height, the grounds of the tabernacle where of certain breadth, it was a certain length, and the pins that staked the curtains into the ground were only driven a certain depth, why?, because the represented the fact that Christ would be buried and then be resurrected! That Christ may dwell in your hearts (the inner man of the soul (natural mind,spiritual mind), by faith (knowledge of what God has done and explained in the tabernacle). Rooted and grounded in love (an understanding of the righteousness of God expressed in Jesus Christ).

The passage in Matthew omits the Luke version which say and with all strength. That is just like Ephesians which says that we be strengthened with might in our inner man. The only strength we have is to be secure in the knowledge of all Christ has done as expressed in the tabernacle and temple. To know that my natural mind and spiritual mind has been secured, rooted, and grounded in the knowledge/faith of Christ. I can renew my mind and righteousness has made my spirit free and its teaching the natural mind to be rooted in the change that's taken place in my spiritual mind till the whole body is one, glory!

These verses show what happens when you come in contact with the Presence of God. The ark represents the Spirit of Christ that the Presence always watches over and abides over. The verses will show judgement, angelic activity, what happens to religion, enemies and to those who are good before God. We now have the spirit of Christ and carry the Presence of God, how much more does this fall on us!

1 Samuel 4
And she named the child Ichabod, F25 saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.
And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.
1 Samuel 5
And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.
When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.
And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.
And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.
Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.
But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.
And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.
They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.
And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.
Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.
So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: F26 for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.
And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.
1 Samuel 6
And the ark of the LORD was in the country of the Philistines seven months.
And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of the LORD? tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place.
And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.
Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords. F27
Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.
Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? when he had wrought wonderfully F28 among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?
Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come no yoke, and tie the kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them:
And take the ark of the LORD, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.
And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.
And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home:
And they laid the ark of the LORD upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.
And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh.
And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.
And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the LORD.
And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the LORD.
And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.
And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the LORD; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;
And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great F29 stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the LORD: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.
And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.
And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy LORD God? and to whom shall he go up from us?
And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of the LORD; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.

2 Samuel 6:6-11
6 And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. 7 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; F33 and there he died by the ark of God. 8 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made F34 a breach upon Uzzah: and he called the name of the place Perezuzzah to this day. 9 And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and said, How shall the ark of the LORD come to me? 10 So David would not remove the ark of the LORD unto him into the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite. 11 And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obededom, and all his household.

1 Chronicles 13:9-14
9 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, F125 Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled. 10 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God. 11 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza F126 to this day. 12 And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me? 13 So David brought F127 not the ark home to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite. 14 And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obededom, and all that he had.

Listening to the cost of exaltation series, I heard Dave Roberson describe a vision of Jesus in hell crying for help and worms crawling all over his body and in his eyes. Ps 16:10 and Ps. 22 gives reference to this. These verses and his description triggered thoughts in me that said, this is his spirit crying and in pain, not His body! All the suffering, torment, and crying was His Spirit in hell. It's kinda like the Matrix, you can hurt the computer man that was in the system or the physical one who was plugged in. But if you hurt the physical one the one in the system would cease to exist. Having a spirit gives us authority from the Father to be in the natural.

The devil brought pain and suffering to Jesus' spirit in hell much like the rich man. Why would his tactics change now? The easiest thing to do is to attack your spiritual mind and body and the natural one will bow.

This is why desires, mental problems, and twisted limbs seem so final. Just last week I thought that the body is nothing, its the spirit that matters and that seems more true now than ever. Dave always said how the flesh does not dominate the spirit, that is true, and that the spirit must be taught and then it will dominate. This seems to be why ailments are so hard to get out of. The devil fights from within.

Jesus in hell and the rich man both experienced pain, suffering, torment, and were forsaken. This all illustrates that the devil can attack your spirit in areas where you don't trust God nor have His knowledge and presence.

I even see clearer why we should give God our whole soul. He approached your soul in salvation, made an appeal using knowledge of Him, we believed, and He came in. His presence takes abode in us. He can then give us a language that seems to originate with you because it's born in the spiritual mind and seems like your own language. This is yet another strength of the spirit. God flows His language through your spiritual mind and it hits the natural mind. Its so real you can open your mouth and just speak it.

Things born in your spirit seem so real, but at the same time you can't pinpoint there beginning. It all passes your understanding. Tongues, peace, joy, faith, and love seem to come from nowhere.

We now have a real conscience that is the mind of Christ. His knowledge fills my spiritual mind and each room it occupies is complete. Each change by revelation has, in it, all I need to win. I have knowledge in each room, that Knowledge equals grace/will, faith/knowledge, peace, joy/sonship, goodness, kindness, and love/righteousness.

Each room is inhabited by the Life of God, the knowledge of God, the Presence of God, and the Nature of God. We have to eat from the Tree of Life/The Father.

The knowledge is the kingdom God abides in.

The rooms the devil holds are used to launch attacks on the physical body to discredit the Presence of God in you and retake ground.

Both kingdoms are pushing to take ground.

Thoughts from God or the devil seem like yours because they both originate in the spiritual mind and birth in the natural as your own. So, again satan used God's operation and tried to duplicate His success. What better relationship to have than one from within.

The Father continues to ask you to use the soul to let Him in. He began and will finish using a soul that has free will. The soul is the heart of all change.

The Lord started out by telling me that Job was a type of Christ. Job, as we found out, accused God, but never cursed God. His wife/church couldn't get him to do it. Job's friends/thief on the cross couldn't get him to curse God. Job was hit with the loss of everything and never once cursed God or implied that there must not be a God if all of this is taking place. He never denied God. The fact that he accused God shows that he was acknowledging His existence.

Jesus took our place and bore our sins by being separated, in hell, and in torment, without God.

Being without God, all Jesus had was the word/promises of God. Jesus held onto the word by faith or with a knowledge of all God's ever told Him that He, God, was.

Jesus is the only one to be separated from God, but He never let go of God. We all let go of a fundamental belief in God.

Satan hit Jesus with all torment, oppression, and evil/lies, in hell. Jesus never ever denied the Father He was separated from. There is healing for people who feel separated from their Father and mother in Christ.

We now preach Jesus Christ crucified because He alone bore the weight of our lie/evil. We believed the lie/evil that said there is not God. Satan indoctrinated us through people and media, he used them to sow and water that seed of unbelief/doubt/denial/cursing and then came along and gave it increase. He got the stronghold going and after we accepted it he moved devils in to occupy us. This normally happens at the age of accountability and loss of innocence. That's how it works with God in the gifts of the spirit. A sent one comes not only to preach but with signs and wonders. If you read someones mail or cause a creative miracle they are more apt to open up and believe and welcome in God again. Sadly, most of us are saved with fear of hell. It's now easy to see how revival comes on the back of a person who goes far into God to pull out the miraculous. Revival is the description of an occurrence that takes place when a man goes and gets the miraculous. So, anyone can bring it. Revival is not sovereign. Revivals grow as the miracles grow.

Jesus came to bear our torment and resisted the devil and every reason known to man, that said, there is no God. All that torment while God was not there, and He never lied and said that there is no God. He knew, God Is, no matter what. All of us lied and said there is no God when tempted with that thought. Jesus alone can author and finish faith in us. In other words God will use Jesus as our only example of sonship. The Father/Teacher will only use Jesus to teach us about how to relate to Him and how one functions in the kingdom. Jesus is the only one with authority to tell us how to walk this thing out, everyone else failed to hold the word. We preach how Jesus bore our first lie, that said there is no God!

Now, satan's war machine cleared up. Now we can discern the doctrine of evolution. We can see false religion. We can see the love of money and how they all pull us away from a knowledge of God. Whatever is void of God is part of satan's war machine.

Praise is a powerful weapon, in that, it allows us to have a vehicle to use in releasing faith. The faith we release is in Jesus' Victory over the enemy. Hallelujah is glorying in Jesus' Triumph over the devil and darkness. Satan knows, as a fallen worship leader, what this praise will do and what it's all about. He knows that praise and worship generates faith that takes you higher and higher into the glories of God. It got you more and more views of Him. When we praise Jesus, God dispatches angels to bring us messages about Him. These messages take us even higher into knowing our Father. The devil fights worship with every alternative imaginable, especially music. He never wants your soul continually focused on the Victory of Jesus. If it, your soul, is continually focused on Jesus you will begin to see tremendous growth and light. The devil will be exposed and cast out and the expansion of the kingdom of God in you, in your soul, shall take another giant step in securing Jesus as Lord in you, to you, and through you.
