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)
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.
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!
