The Mind of Christ

The Mind of Christ

by Pastor Marie Esposito

Breakout season- ***To display flying –   Escape, Flight, getaway, rout slip, blaze, burst forth, erupt, explode, flame, flare,

CROSSOVER  from promises revealed to promises fulfilled

Stand at the crossroads and choose the ancient paths: where the good way is.
Jeremiah 6:16
Stand, stand, stand,
Stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. Col 4:12
“That you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.”
Galatians 5:1

Ephesians 6:13

What are we standing for? What and Who are we standing in agreement with?  THE MIND OF CHRIST.

Stepping into the higher realm where My thoughts rule will change your life. The ascension into heavenly thinking brings blessings and responsibility.
Be still and know that I Am God.
Getting to know Me will enhance your life and fill your being with the fruits of Holy Spirit.
Dwell in Me and I will dwell in you.
Spend time with Me.
Get to know Me by studying My Word and listening to Holy Spirit.
See how My Son walked the earth and take note of His values and attitudes.
Jesus can reveal Me to you.
Get to know My character and My heart.

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
Colossians 3:2 – Let heaven fill your thoughts
LET heaven invade your thoughts.
“Let the realities of Heaven fill your thoughts.”
Look up and be alert to what is going on around Christ-that’s where the action is. SEE THINGS FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE.

Metanoia- repent- TAKE ANOTHER MIND. [ the mind of Christ]
My thoughts are godly- of ME says the Lord.

Isaiah 55:1-13
Isaiah 55  October 2018   [word to me]
Come, come, come
Alignment – come into the mind of Christ
Sing the new song that all creation sings
to the King of glory
Come and drink – listen – open your ears – eyes
Wine and milk for free


Psalm 107:9
Matthew 11:28

Whosoever will, let him take freely of the waters of life.” (Revelation 22:17) “‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said to him, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved.” (Acts 16:30-31) “The Lord is… not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to metanoia.” (2 Peter 3:9) God calls sinners to eat freely of the bread of life, the broken body and shed blood of His Son. This is a meal He has set for the ungodly, not for the righteous nor for some phony level of righteousness. He wants sinners to eat of it, and He does not set up signs that say: “Only for those who are penitent”. God sees our dire need and says, “Eat, sinner, and live! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ! Look and your soul shall be filled! Do not think that you must be worthy to receive My salvation. Behold and believe My righteous generous grace for you displayed in the cross of Christ. Metanoia!”

Metanoia- transformational change of heart; a change in one’s way of life, a fundamental change in direction, due to a spiritual conversion
Change of the ways of life because of a summons from the Holy God to a personal, absolute and ultimate unconditional surrender to Him as Sovereign.

We have the mind of Christ
1 Corinthians 2:16
1 Corinthians 2:10
:14 –
Those who have the mind of Christ are able to discern His moving in a situation, whereas the natural mind cannot.
Romans 12:2
Colossians 3:10
Romans 13:14- clothe yourselves- have an intimate union with Him, [being clothed with all the graces which are in Him] put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill it’s lusts or gratify it’s desires.

“Robe yourselves with the virtues of God.” Colossians 3:12 – …be gentle and humble, unoffendable in your patience with others.

Galatians 3:26-27 – In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Colossians 3:11-14
The mind of Christ summed up is this:
