RHEMA 11/01/08 WARNING: A SOUND
For God has not given us a spirit of
fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind . 2
Tim 1:7 NKJV
NT:4995 sophronismos (so-fron-is-mos');
from NT:4994; discipline, i.e. selfcontrol:
KJV - sound mind.
NT:4994 sophronizo (so-fron-id'-zo);
from NT:4998; to make of sound mind, i.e. (figuratively)
to discipline or correct:
KJV - teach to be sober.
I watched an educational show on how
fear affects the brain. They did studies that revealed
an interesting thing. When someone is confronted with
the emotion of fear, it first registers in one part of
the brain for a brief moment. In that part of the brain
it gives the person a chance to STOP and think or
briefly process what took place first. Then after the
pause, the same chemical is released to the rest of the
brain that thus tells the body what to do because of the
fear. They backed up their brain studies by showing
that when something alarming takes place in the animal
kingdom, the animals will first freeze, process it, then
run away. Then they showed a video of a crowd when
people heard gun shots, they stopped, then all ran at
God trains us as overcomers and gives us
a chance to have self control over fear, whereby we can
stop and process it first, prior to the flesh’s response
to taking flight and running away. In the spiritual
world, sometimes we process what is coming to us, to
stand and fight, sometimes we process it as a warning to
leave. But no matter what, God can give us His power of
love and self discipline to overcome the situation
without blindly and emotionally running away.
Gal 5:22-25 NKJV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such
there is no law. And those who are Christ's have
crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we
in the Spirit, let us also walk in
SERIOUS WARNING UPDATE 12/20/08:
I had voiced concern and caution over a loved one’s eyes
over a possible hemorrhage to that person’s eye due to
high blood pressure. A couple weeks later I got a
hemorrhage in my eye due to severe coughing, which is
the leading cause of such. I had a download of
revelation that we need to stop confessing fearful
concern over our loved ones and change the way we
speak. I was convinced of this.
Last month I was in a discussion with
another person in regards to some concern of some steep
stairs. We exchanged childhood stories about our
experiences with stairs. And then I prayed the Lord’s
protection over the specific stairs we were talking
about. One week later a 5 month old baby fell down
those stairs unharmed. When it happened, the Lord
brought back the entire discussion and I wondered if our
concerned conversation had opened the door, or if the
Lord had quickened it so that I would be spurred to
pray. The answer could possibly be both, but after my
eye problem, I am convinced that we need to pray against
loved ones negative confessions when they are fearfully
concerned over us. Fear opens the door to the demonic
plunder. Fear is NEGATIVE FAITH.
Prov 13:2-3 NKJV
A man shall eat well by the fruit of
his mouth, But the soul of the unfaithful feeds on
violence. He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.
2 Tim 1:7 NKJV
For God has not given us a spirit of
fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind .
1 John 4:19 NKJV
There is no fear in love; but perfect
love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But
he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

Out of the abundance of my heart, I speak many words.
What I say has the power to defile my temple or bless
it. My words set the natural course of my body towards
fiery death or abundant life. My words can set my health
towards the destructive fire of the demonic. My words
will justify me or condemn me. My words can bring
sweetness to my soul and health to my bones. What do I
want to say today?
RHEMA 11/20/08 NO FEAR

Where are you going? Air lifted. To a better place.
One without fear. Keep it simple. No fear.
Ps 27:14 NKJV
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I
fear ?The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall
I be afraid? 2 When the wicked came against me To eat up
my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. 3
Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not

One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I
seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the
days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And
to inquire in His temple. 5 For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of
His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high
upon a rock. 6 And now my head shall be lifted up above
my enemies all around me.
