What you see is what you get!

Imagination supplies you the mental pictures that you alone can see – in your thought Chamber! It is the “evidence” of what you desire; the “evidence” of your faith. If you cannot see it or “imagine” it, you cannot have it!

Faith cannot operate without spiritual sight. That is where imagination comes in.

Everyone has imagination. When properly used or directed, it can carry you from the visible, physical realm to the invisible spirit realm. It can also transport things from the invisible spirit realm to the visible physical or natural realm. Everything in the physical realm first existed in and came from the spirit realm.

 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” – Heb 11:3 (KJV)

Imagination is a visible picture seen only by the creator, the “visioneer”. The more the picture or image is “retained” (Rom. 1:28) and nurtured, the more life it is given.

That is why Jesus said, if any man look lustfully at a woman, he has done it!

“But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” – Matt 5:28 (KJV)

It is not just that one looked; but HOW the person looked: LUSTFULLY! In other words, creating, or raising a mental picture of the woman without her clothes. This employs the imagination.

Treasure Chest

Physically, visibly, people see the person as innocent; not committed adultery. But in the invisible realm, the spirit realm, such a person is guilty, and has committed adultery!

There may be no “evidence” of what has been done. But spiritually, there is “evidence”!

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Heb 11:1 (KJV)

“.. evidence of things not seen”!

Faith is thought that is hopeful, anchored on the Word of God and backed up with love.

With the “evidence”, your thought, you can be convicted; “accused” by the accuser of brethren. Your thought can convict you in the spirit realm!

Hate or hatred is a negative emotional thought toward someone or something.

“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” – 1 John 3:15 (KJV)

The person is called and judged a murderer; though has not physically killed anyone! Negative thought or imagination, not pulled down or destroyed can convict you in the spirit realm!

Here the Holy Spirit reaffirms that our thought can act in “evidence” against us. Physically, you can be smiling with a person, but spiritually there is “evidence” that you have killed the person!

“By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son.” – Heb 11:17 (KJV)

Was Isaac really, naturally “offered up”? No!

The concluded thought in Abraham, and the sweet surrender of Isaac rose to God as a sweet smelling savour; it is as good as done!

Your thought goes beyond what you do in the natural realm. It enters into the spirit realm and opens you to either Faith or fear. It tells God continually who you are.

“The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.” – Psalms 94:11 (KJV)

Demonic forces also see your thought!

“….. he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.” – Prov 11:27b (KJV)

They see your thought, else they will not have “evidence” with which to accuse you.

As a man thinks

What you think will come to you: good or bad. So:

(1) Cast down imaginations and put thoughts into captivity.

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” – 2 Cor 10:5 (KJV)

(2) Entertain only good and pure thoughts.

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” – Phil 4:8 (KJV)

May God help us keep our thoughts pure. Amen.

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” – Phil 4:8 (KJV)

This is the first stage of demonic presence called “infestation”. Like flies infesting an open food, they follow the aroma of the food and consequently to the plate.

One evening, a friend joined my wife and I for dinner outside in front of the house. My wife threw away the water we used in washing our hands, not far from where we were.  In Africa we eat some meals with our hands and wash them before and after eating. Suddenly a group of soldier ants invaded our position. They perceived the food and  following the water, came where we were.

Many things we can’t perceive from water, ants and demons do! Many things we can’t hear, dogs and demons do! Many things we can’t see, dogs and demons do! That is why we need to think good thoughts (Philp. 4:8) which attract the Lord and the hosts of heaven!

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” – Rev 3:20 (KJV)

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.” – Romans 1:28-31 (KJV)

The Word of God is the suggestion! When we meditate on His word, we are responding to His suggestion; attracting Him.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” – Josh 1:8 (KJV)

The Law of Attraction is based on three principles: suggestion, response and finally attraction.

IMAGE FORMATION

In the thought Chamber there are compartments. The third compartment is what we call imagination.

Imagination is an aspect of thought that dwells on what would or should happen given certain situations, circumstances or conditions: the consequences or outcome of steps we desire to take. Imagination looks or projects into the future. Even if you recall an event that happened twenty years ago, it is with intent to plan or project into the future.

Imagination is the thought that creates images, pictures of tomorrow: it sees the future! This is the region of hope. And without hope Faith is dead!

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Heb 11:1 (KJV)

Faith is thought that is full of hope, based on the Word of God, and backed by love.

Your thought is substance! As said earlier, in the spirit realm imagination is as tangible as bricks and steel are in the natural!

Imagination supplies you the mental pictures that you alone can see – in your thought Chamber! It is the “evidence” of what you desire; the “evidence” of your faith. If you cannot see it or “imagine” it, you cannot have it!

“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” – Gen 11:6 (KJV)

“And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” – Gen 13:14-15 (KJV)

“And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.” – Gen 30:41 (KJV)

“And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.” – Ex 7:1 (KJV)

What you see is what you get!

Every time you respond positively to a suggestion, good or evil, you make it your own, and you will not remain the same afterwards. It leaves you better or worse.

This is the process that opens the door, and the reason we should be careful what we hear and how we hear!

Eve shouldn’t have had the discussion with the serpent. She should not have welcomed it or entertained it after the suggestion it put forward, against the instruction that God gave.

“If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” – 2 John 1:10-11 (KJV)

This discussion injected the rebellious thought in her heart.

What have you been listening to? And who have you been listening to? God is interested!

He asked Adam “Who told thee that thou wast naked?” – Gen 3:11a (KJV)

God is interested in the company you keep!

He queried Hezekiah on the visitors he received.

“Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country, even from Babylon.” – 2 Kings 20:14 (KJV)

Like a caring father would be interested in the company the children keep, God monitors our company and what we hear, as they may be damaging or injurious to our well-being.

Thought is simply discussing with an unseen entity; God or satan.

We attract unseen forces through the thoughts in our heart. We are magnets; human magnets! What you think comes to you!

“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” -Job 3:25 (KJV)

Fear is thought!

Most often people invite demons into their lives through thought. How?

“Fleecing” thoughts!

​​

When they forecast, through the use of kola-nuts, the dice, coins, crystal ball, cowrie shells, Ouija boards, tarot cards, horoscope, scrying mirror, etc. Demons see these “thoughts” that are projected and are drawn to its source!

Every thought that lacks “pureness”, the presence of God, invite demons!

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” – Phil 4:8 (KJV)
