Thought Police

If a thief or a robber came to your home, would you tell him to leave or rebuke him and shut the door? Allowing him back out on the streets to accost others? Or would you call the earthly governmental authorities and give a description and all details to them so that this thief or robber would be arrested and taken off the streets? Most of us would, in fact, call the earthly governmental authorities, or ‘police‘.

So why, when we know hasatan is a thief and a robber (John 10:1-2) would we allow him access to our minds? Or why, when we know hasatan is a thief and a robber would we allow him back out ‘on the streets’ to accost others? Why don‘t we turn him over to the true Authority?

2 Cor.10: 2-6
2 But I pray, that when I am present, I might not be bold with that bravery by which I think to be bold against some who reckon us as if we walked according to the flesh.
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not fight according to the flesh.
4 For the weapons we fight with are not fleshly but mighty in Elohim for overthrowing strongholds,
5 overthrowing reasonings and every high matter that exalts itself against the knowledge of Elohim, taking captive every thought to make it obedient to the Messiah,
6 and being ready to punish all disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

How many times have we reacted to the ‘first thought’ that pops in our heads without analyzing it?

Proverbs 14:15-16
15 The simple believes every word, But the clever one watches his step .
16 The wise fears and turns away from evil, But a fool rushes on and is reckless.

Proverbs 16:32
32 He who is patient is better than the mighty, And he who rules over his spirit than he who takes a city.

Ya’aqov 1:19-21
19 So then, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath,
20 for the wrath of man does not work the righteousness of Elohim.
21 Therefore put away all filthiness and overflow of evil, and receive with meekness the implanted Word, which is able to save your lives.

Proverbs 10:19
19 When words are many, Transgression is not absent, But he who restrains his lips is wise.

Proverbs 17:27
27 He who has knowledge spares his words, And a man of understanding is cool of spirit.

Iyob 15:2-6
2 ‘Would a wise man answer with vain knowledge, or fill his belly with the east wind?
3 Would he reason with useless talk, or by speeches with which do not profit?
4 Indeed, you do away with reverence, and withhold prayer before El.
5 For your crookedness teaches your mouth what to say, and you choose the tongue of the crafty.
6 Not I, but your own mouth condemns you. And your own lips witness against you.

Ecc 10:12-14
12 Words of a wise man’s mouth show favor, but the lips of a fool swallow him up;
13 the beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness, and the end of his talk is wicked madness.
14 And a fool increases words; a man knows not what shall come to be; and who declares to him what shall be after him?

Eph 6:10-19
10 For the rest, my brothers, be strong in the Master and in the mightiness of His strength.
11 Put on the complete armor of Elohim, for you to have power to stand against the schemes of the devil.
12 Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies.

13 Because of this, take up the complete armor of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand, then, having girded your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Tob (Good) News of peace;
16 above all, having taken up the shield of belief with which you shall have power to quench all the burning arrows of the wicked one.
17 Take also the helmet of deliverance, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of Elohim,
18 praying at all times, with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching in all perseverance and supplication for all the set-apart ones;
19 also for me, that a word might be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to be bold in making known the secret of the Tob (Good) News.

If we consider that hasatan is:

Eph. 2:1-2:
1 And you were dead in trespasses and sins,
2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience,

The question is: Are all thoughts our own? What does the Word say?

‘taking captive every thought to make it obedient to the Messiah’

Then the question becomes: What is a thought that it can be taken captive?

Something to consider.

Be your own thought police.
