Is it possible to stop transformation ?
How do you stop the transformation?
Transformation involves two realms primarily.
The mind and the speech.
For a transformation we must combine our mind set, perspective and agreement with new speech. Speech is the realm of covenant and where blessing and cursing is released.
Romans 10: 10 for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
First set your mind on your new nature…bring every thought into subjection to the reality and fact that through Christ you are a new creation. You have new passions, new appetites, new vision, new self control, new power, new insight, new gifts, new enablement, etc.
The nature of Christ is your’s now. You have been crucified (the old you, the carnal you , the Adamic you) and you are now recreated in the image of Christ.
This is something you must activily submit to. This is a reality you must seize by faith moment by moment. When you do resurrection power will dwell in you and complete what Christ has accomplished in this great salvation!
Speech, and confession is how we take ownership, seal contracts and release our body into an agreement to participate in this new creation accomplishement.
Futuristic confession sounds spiritual and religious, but it is not effectual for transformation. Therefore futuristic speech is an insidious trick of procrastination. You are speaking well, so you think, but in fact you are putting off your full transformation indefinitely.
The confession “I’m gonna be”, prolongs what’s “gonna be” indefinitely.
Anytime you use that expression do you set anything in motion other than hope?
I’m gonna invest some day
I’m gonna have a house
I’m gonna buy a corvette
I’m gonna have a better job
I’m gonna finish my education
The way transformational faith works is that you must proclaim ownership now, not in the future.
The way transformational faith works is you proclaim the reality of your transformation
Releasing the legal reality into the manifest realm.
Releasing the legal to confront and dispossess contradictions in the manifest realm.
II Corinthians 4:18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. NIV
Here are two examples of speech. One example will hinder transformation, whereas one will release transformation now (yet it will unfold progressively).
“I am healed”
I’m gonna be healed. I ask for healing. I pray for healing. I will be healed. I trust I’ll be healed.
“I am merciful”
I’m going to become more merciful, I’m going to forgive that person, I’m praying for God to give me forgiveness,
“I am loving”
I just hope I can get more loving. I’m believing to love those people some day. I pray I can love them some day.
“I am patient”
I’m praying for more patience. I sure hope to get more patient.
“I am rich” “My needs are met with abundance”
I’m believing that God’s gonna pay my bills, I’m just hoping that God comes through for me, I hope we get buy this year, I pray we don’t go under,
“I am succeeding” “God grants me good success”
I hope I make some progress. I’m believing for progress. I think I’ll get some progress. I’m trusting to fulfill some of my vision. I hope I fulfill the vision that God gave me, etc.
“I am strong”
I’m asking for more courage. I’m not one to take risk. I’m praying for more strength. I just seem to be thwarted. I think that God has a purpose in this weakness.
“I have self control”
2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
“I am righteous”
In stating these expressions you are not stating something that you must talk God into.
You are not stating something He probably doesn’t want and it’s the first that God’s heard of your greedy little plan.
You are not stating something that contradicts God’s will for you.
You are not reaching up and trying to get something out of the heavens that God has been restricting you from.
You are simply agreeing with what is yours in Christ.
Agreeing with your new nature.
Agreeing with what God has said about you and done for you in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Any contradiction to Christ is a contradiction to your new nature and a prolonging of the transformational process.
