September 2018 Newsletter - "Let This Mind" by Dr. Roni Burton
Shalom saints. What separates us from the beasts? From cats and dogs, caterpillars, trees, cows, bats or ants; among other mysteries of our Creator, is reason. We were made in the image of Yah and thus are given the gift of reflecting the character and function of Yah (Gen 1:26). Other beings, i.e. the angelic class, are the ministering spirits (Heb 1:14) to us as we are joint heirs with Christ (Rom 8:17). So, when the apostle Paul invites us to “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,” (Phil 2:5) he is revealing to us the process by which we return to manifesting the “sons of God” (John 1:12).
It all starts with a seed. Luke 8:11 lets us know that the “seed is the Word of God” and Gal 3:16 defines that seed “which is Christ.” He, the Word/Christ, created and maintains the world, which is mostly ignorant of Him.
If there is ignorance of Christ, which is sin, it’s a matter of the mind. The corporeal or material world is where sickness manifests, but it starts in the realm of spirit, that is the mind. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he (Pro 23:7). Thus, if the thoughts are of fear instead of ‘shalom’ (with all of its benefits in spirit, mind, and body) the result is dysfunction, a break in the DNA of life because of sick ‘words.’ Yahusha said that His words are spirit and life (John 6:63) and they must “dwell in us richly” (Col 3:16).
Why is this so important? Because we create with our thoughts. Our thoughts are our words to ourselves and each other, and if they (i.e. the words) are the Words which are the Christ, then they are the “words of eternal life” (John 6:68), the mind of Christ. These are the words that cure all manner of diseases, from the common cold to stage four cancer. That has been our experience here at Forerunner Ministries International under the anointing of our pastor Michael Petro. It’s the bread from heaven (the revealed, rhema Word) that if we eat it we live forever (John 6:50-51).
Creative miracles are coming! It’s what has been promised by Christ. As we are entering the millennium kingdom, which is the glory realm, Yahusha/Jesus said if we believe we will do His work and greater works also (John 14:12).
I believe and I’m excited about speaking limbs into existence, commanding cancer to leave, heart disease, diabetes, and all other “works” of the devil to be removed. So, ‘let this Mind’ be in us which is in Christ: let us be re-united with the Father in the perfection, majesty, power, and glory we shared before the world began (Pro 8:22). It is our inheritance as sons of Light (John 17:26) and the restoration of all things (Matt 17:11).
Blessings! Pastor Roni
