Now that we understand what Heaven requires in terms of repentance and  unconditional surrender, it is important to also realize that we are inundated on a  daily basis with ideologies that oppose Heaven. In fact most believers commonly  hold some ideologies that are antithetical to Kingdom. But if we hold thoughts  and beliefs that oppose God then, although our spirit is born again, our soul is  admittedly still at war with the Kingdom of Heaven. But any true child of God  does not desire to live at odds with his or her home country. But in order to come  into alignment with the Government of Heaven we must change the way that we  think. 

Now this may not be as easy as it sounds. In fact, the most difficult change to  make is many times a change in the way we think. This is why old habits can be  so difficult to break. Our old programming, pet thoughts, beliefs, bents and  iniquities have been with us for many years. It is the programming of the World  System apart from God that we have been trained in for decades. Even after the  new birth we continued to be trained in the ideologies of the world every time we  turned on the television, listened to a secular song, went on the internet or  watched the news. Worldly ideologies are pervasive, from the clothing that  women wear to the sports that men watch. No area of our present culture is  exempt from the influence of the World System. 

Actually the Germans have a name for it. They call it “Zeitgeist” and it means  the “Spirit of the Age” which refers to all the floating mass of thoughts, opinions,  maxims, speculations, hopes, impulses, aims, aspirations, at any time current in  the world, which constitutes a most real and effective power, being the moral or  immoral atmosphere which at every moment of our lives we inhale, again  inevitably to exhale [from Wuest Word Studies in the Greek New Testament]. So  the Kosmos World System that we live in has its own culture and ideology that  quite obviously opposes God.

 

The problem is that as a Christian who has renounced the Kingdom of Darkness,  it is now my obligation to submit to God and reprogram my mind to think like  Heaven. But this is only accomplished by the renewing or reprogramming of the  mind through meditating and studying the Word of God. But this reprogramming  does not happen as we casually read the word, but rather as we spend time with  the word by chewing on it over and over through the process of meditation. As  we meditate on God’s word our internal programming and beliefs begin to  change as they are re-written, so that we begin to gradually think like Heaven.  Therefore in order for you and I to overcome worldly ideologies that oppose  Heaven we must commit to this mind renewal process. 

YOUR MIND IS THE KEY 

Did you know that your mind is the key to your success or failure in the  Kingdom? To the degree that your mind is renewed or reprogrammed and  focused or set on spiritual things is the degree of success you will have. But the  opposite is also true. To the degree that your mind is set or focused on carnal  things is the degree of your failure in the things of God. So ultimately it is not God  who determines your success or failure in accomplishing your purpose and  destiny, rather it’s you. May we ask God to help us to set our minds on the things  of the Spirit. 

Romans 8:5-8 ESV 

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the  flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things  of the Spirit. (6) For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind  on the Spirit is life and peace. (7) For the mind that is set on the flesh is  hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. (8)  Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 

1 Corinthians 2:12-14 ESV 

(12) Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from  God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. (13) And we  impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit,  interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. (14) The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is  not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned

Philippians 3:15-19 ESV 

(15) Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think  otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. (16) Only let us hold true to what we  have attained. (17) Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those  

who walk according to the example you have in us. (18) For many, of whom I  have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the  cross of Christ. (19) Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and  they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. 

MEDITATION PRODUCES TRANSFORMATION 

Many Christians around this time of year commit to read through the Bible, which  is an awesome and worthwhile goal. But did you know that God never instructs  us to merely read His Word? While reading the Bible is essential, God instructs  us to study and meditate it. Therefore meditation of the word is far more valuable  and fruitful than merely reading the Word. You see, when you read the word, you  are at the surface level. But how many know that if you want to find gold you  must go beneath the surface? Or to use another analogy if you want revelation  and you want to progress in the Kingdom you must go to the cow. Every animal  that God created has unique properties that teach us hidden spiritual lessons.  Well God designated the cow to teach us the principle of meditation.

Psalms 1:1-3 ESV 

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the  way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of  the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. (3) He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not  wither. In all that he does, he prospers. 

Joshua 1:7-8 ESV 

Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law  that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or  to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. (8) This Book of  the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and  

night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For  then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success

Psalms 119:14-23 ESV 

In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. (15) I will  meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. (16) I will delight in  your statutes; I will not forget your word. (17) Deal bountifully with your  servant, that I may live and keep your word. (18) Open my eyes, that I may  behold wondrous things out of your law. (19) I am a sojourner on the earth; hide  not your commandments from me! (20) My soul is consumed with longing for  your rules at all times. (21) You rebuke the insolent, accursed ones, who wander  from your commandments. (22) Take away from me scorn and contempt, for I  have kept your testimonies. (23) Even though princes sit plotting against me,  your servant will meditate on your statutes. 

ASSIMILATION TO THE KINGDOM 

It has always been understood that when a person seeks to become a citizen of  a different country than where they were born, that the new citizen would  assimilate to the new country, by learning their language, customs, culture and  history. In so doing the immigrant would begin to adapt to the new community  that they have joined. 

However in modern times, the concept of “assimilation” has fallen out of favor  with certain globalist types who believe in border-less societies. This ideology  would allow immigrants to enter a country without legal requirements and see no  problem with the negative consequences of how mass immigration will fundamentally change the culture of the country into which the immigrants are  flocking. But mass immigration without assimilation defies common sense. For  example, in the case of the United States of America, half the world’s population  would immigrate here if they were able to. But why are millions of people trying to  enter the United States? Very simply, because they don’t like what is going on in  their countries, so much so that they will risk life and limb, many times taking  perilous journeys where they put themselves and their children at great risk to all  types of dangers, all for an opportunity to live in the greatest country on Earth.  But for those immigrants who enter legally and are naturalized to become U.S.  citizens, shouldn’t they also be required to assimilate into American society? 

assimilate: 

(1) to take in and incorporate as one’s own; absorb; (2) to bring into  conformity with the customs, attitudes, etc., of a group, nation, or the like;  adapt or adjust [dictionary.com

Assimilation, in anthropology and sociology is, the process whereby  individuals or groups of differing ethnic heritage are absorbed into the  dominant culture of a society. The process of assimilating involves taking  on the traits of the dominant culture to such a degree that the assimilating  group becomes socially indistinguishable from other members of the  society. [Encyclopedia Britannica] 

Therefore a naturalized citizen’s success in their new country is largely  determined by their ability to assimilate to the culture and language. For  example, the person who comes to America but refuses to learn English will  largely be locked out of broad participation in the economy and culture. Similarly  every citizen of Heaven is expected and required to Assimilate to their new home  country. Heaven considers it unacceptable to be a naturalized citizen that fails to  assimilate. Heaven expects us to assimilate to its culture, language and thought  process. Failure to assimilate to Heaven’s Culture means that the believer will be  locked out and unable to experience the Promises & Blessings of God.

 

Philippians 3:20-21 ESV  

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus  Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the  power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. 

Matthew 6:9-10 ESV 

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. (10) Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 

Matthew 6:31-33 TPT 

“So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ (32) For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require? (33) “So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. 

Ephesians 2:11-17 TPT  

(11-12) So don’t forget that you were not born as Jews and were uncircumcised (circumcision itself is just a work of man’s hands); you had none of the Jewish covenants and laws; you were foreigners to Israel’s incredible heritage; you were without the covenants and prophetic promises of the Messiah, the promised  hope, and without God. (13) Yet look at you now! Everything is new! Although you were once distant and far away from God, now you have been brought delightfully close to him through the sacred blood of Jesus—you have actually been united to Christ! (14) Our reconciling “Peace” is Jesus! He has made Jew and non-Jew one in Christ. By dying as our sacrifice, he has broken down every wall of prejudice that separated us and has now made us equal through our union with Christ. (15) Ethnic hatred has been dissolved by the crucifixion of his precious body on the cross. The legal code that stood condemning every one of us has now been repealed by his command. His triune essence has made peace  between us by starting over—forming one new race of humanity, Jews and non Jews fused together! (16) Two have now become one, and we live restored to God and reconciled in the body of Christ. Through his crucifixion, hatred died. (17) For the Messiah has come to preach this sweet message of peace to you, the ones who were distant, and to those who are near.
