is to find out what is one's destiny to do, and then do it."

PROVERBS TO LIVE BY
PROVERBS 30:5,6
 
Proverbs 30:5 says, “Every word of God is pure. He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him.”  God has His word written in the Book, the Holy Bible, as His Holy Spirit gave it to the human writers. The words written were His words, not theirs. There is no word or truth that is more pure than God’s word.
 
His word is also written into the hearts (spirit) of mankind. People therefore inherently know right from wrong. Cultural “norms,” taught ideas, repeatedly doing wrong and other such matters can often override that inherent sense to the point that they no longer believe truth. The “lie” becomes their “truth” as the next verse shows.
 
Verse 6 says, “Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove (rebuke) thee, and thou be found a liar.” Religious people often add doctrine or traditions or practices that are not in the bible. This corrupts the purity of the word.
 
Others, non-believers, and some believers, also alter the Word by adding interpretations based on twisting one part of scripture to be interpreted in a way that is opposite to the remaining word. One such example of this twisting relates to homosexuality. They will take what says that God loves everybody, therefore He loves the homosexual. That part is true; he loves the person. Then they go farther in saying that since He loves them, He therefore accepts and approves of their homosexual conduct.  This is not true as He loves the sinner but hates the sin. The remainder of the bible condemns that lifestyle in both the Old and New Testaments. This is one of many examples of “adding” to the Word. The “added” part is a lie.
 
Apostle John in Revelation 22:18-19 spoke about adding to the book when he wrote, “If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” We cannot “re-write” it to suit our personal, social, or national agendas.
 
The Word of God is pure and true. In order to keep from being deceived, we must know the Word “inside and out.” You must read it and study it for yourself. Do not take somebody else’s claim of what it says, not even a pastor, Preacher, or Bible Scholar; many of them actually teach error.
 
Study the Word so that you will know the truth for yourself. As you read and study, ask Holy Spirit to enable your understanding. That is a part of His job description.

A LESSON FROM A FAT PREGNANT SHEEP
 
Recently on our daily broadcast I taught on how to “cast down imaginations.” You see my friends all temptations from Satan will start in the mind. He will put a thought there and it may look good on the surface but underlying the good is evil that will bring harm. The thought is not the sin. It is when we put the thought into action that it becomes sin
 
In II Corinthians 10:5 (KJV) it tells us we must be “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.”  The Amplified Bible makes it even clearer. “We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ” The question is, how do we do this?
 
I want you to picture a fat pregnant sheep full of wool. It can barely walk.  It is encumbered from the weight of the wool and the pregnancy. This fat, pregnant full of wool sheep is walking and falls down. In this condition, the sheep cannot get up from the ground. The sheer weight of the pregnancy makes it difficult, but the added weight of wool makes it impossible. As the sheep lays there struggling to get up it fights to rise, and a gas builds up in its chest called bilirubin. This gas will kill a sheep if it continues in this position because the gas will build up and eventually smother the sheep. This position the sheep is in is called “cast”. The only thing that can save this sheep is if the shepherd finds it and uprights it. If the shepherd doesn’t find it and upright it, it is a certain death sentence. It cannot get up on its own.
 
In applying this principle to our lives, God wants us to take thoughts that enter our mind and deliberately “cast” or throw them down to die on the ground. We have to deliberately do this. We have to say “no” to the thoughts and “yes” to the shepherd that wants us to walk uprightly. Once we “cast” these thoughts down, we have to choose to not entertain them again, or we will be like that sheep and the thoughts will destroy us. It takes practice to do this, but I can assure you that it works. I have had to do it in my own life, and I know it will work for you.
 
Once a thought comes in, we have to determine if it came from God or came from Satan. Many thoughts seem pleasant to begin with but can bring harm if entertained.  Thoughts from God will never entice you to sin. We learn what sin is through reading the Bible. A friend told me that he had once stopped his vehicle on the expressway to take off his jacket. He got out of his car and the traffic was very heavy. A thought came to him, “why not jump in front of a car and see how it feels.” It lingered in his mind for a moment, but then he realized that Satan was trying to kill him. He refused the thought. This is what you have to do too. You can’t entertain any thought that is contrary to God’s Word. Take the ungodly thoughts and throw them down like the sheep in the cast position. But instead of rescuing the thought, (like the sheep) let the thought stay cast down and die. Don’t pick it up. Leave it cast down. I guarantee if you practice this, you will get victory in your thought life and your spiritual walk with God!
