Stop Mind Terrorism

There must be an all-out war against the hijacking of our thoughts, our musings and our minds. Mind terrorism occurs when ‘a truth’ is mishandled, misunderstood, or misdirected and thus, becomes re-routed to a place other than its intended destiny. For instance, the idea of naming it and claiming it; the idea that your thoughts create an atmosphere; the new-age idea of if you say it long enough, it will become. The roots of these ideas are principles that are found in the Word of God: calling those things which do not exist as though they did; as a man thinks in his heart, so is he; the power of life and death is in the tongue; etc.

The Bible is true, yet these biblical principles have been hijacked and mishandled as opportunities to create what we can control instead of demonstrating faith in that which is in line with the intended Will of God. These scriptures were intended to increase our faith in God, not to create atmospheres that we ourselves control. When we allow our thoughts concerning the Word of God to be hijacked and redirected away from the Kingdom of God to destinations that can only be referenced by flesh or that are primarily focused on self, then we are most assuredly victims of mind terrorism.

The issue is the destination. The issue is where we end up. Where do we want to end up? We want to end up with faith in God. We want to end up where God intended us to go. We want to end up on Kingdom Boulevard in Kingdom Land. Therefore, we must come against and shut down every opportunity and every possibility of mind terrorism at every point. That is accomplished by insisting on intimacy with God. Anything that is not like Him (doesn’t look like Him, doesn’t sound like Him, doesn’t smell like Him) has to be shut down so that God’s will is done in our lives. Stop Mind Terrorism.
