Look at this bowl of pure water, only H2O, nothing else. Such is the Mind of God, pure, perfect and righteous.
Now look at this drop of pure water taken from the bowl; that is a child of God, mind from Mind.
If we put this drop of pure water back into the bowl it connects perfectly and we cannot recognize the drop from the whole.
Now look at this drop of dirty water; that is a child of God who has sinned, and if sinned, how dirty is that drop?
If we put this dirty drop back into the bowl it does not connect, but remains separated from the pure water.
If we put the drop of pure clean water back into the bowl it connects perfectly, however, if we put the dirty drop back in the bowl it doesn't connect, it's still part of the whole, but it cannot connect. Therefore we must purify the drop, remove the pollution, if we want to connect.
"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." (Rom 3:23, 1Jn 1:8)
"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God? Know ye not that the Spirit of God (drop) dwelleth in you?" (1 Cor 3:16)
Just as light has nothing to do with darkness, how dirty is that drop that wants to commune with God?
Little children, we are the fallen angels, we are the sons of God the Father, and every one that has the hope of returning to heaven, purifies themselves even as God is pure. Little children let no man deceive you, he that doeth righteousness is righteous. Whosoever is born again of God does not commit sin for his drop is in Him: and he cannot sin, because he is born again of God.
He that commiteth sin is connected to the devil's soul within, and for this reason the Son of God was made manifest, that he might reveal the works of the devil and thereby we would stop sinning. Whosoever doeth not righteousness are the children of the devil; who sinneth from the beginning.
You are of God, little children. The drop that is within you can help you to overcome this evil world, because greater is that drop of God that is within you, than the devil that is in this world.
"And Jesus called a little child unto him and said, 'Whosoever shall humble himself as this little child, he shall enter the kingdom of heaven."
You entered into this life as a little child. As you grew your mind became polluted by the contents of your soul and those other souls around you. To "fit in" you allowed the soul's ego to take control of your mind. Your mind became polluted and your connection with God faded. Mental pollution, emotional pollution, physical pollution and religious or spiritual pollution dirtied your drop. You tried to put the polluted drop back into the bowl, but you knew not how. You followed one way after another with little or no success because you did not have the true teachings of Jesus, the Way of God.
"Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and all things like these. And those who do such things cannot inherit the kingdom of God." (Gal 5:19-21)
"But out of the heart, the soul, come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander; these defile a person." "For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit (drop), and the desires of the Spirit (drop) are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do." (Mk 15:19-20, Gal 5:17)
"The Lord searches every heart and understands every nature behind the thoughts." (1Chronicles 28:9) "He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit (drop)." (Rom 8:27) "And God reveals them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. " (1Cor 2:10)
Therefore you must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. And let steadfast have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. "Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children." (Eph 5:1)
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your minds ye sinners; purify your hearts ye double minded; for a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Submit yourselves to God; resist the devil and he will flee from you.
The dirty drop has been polluted by the things of this world and thus cannot be taken back to other earth: for what does unrighteousness have with righteousness?
The dirty drop is polluted and must be cleansed before it can be reconnected with the Mind of God. The problem is not the mind but its connection to the soul of the devil that has made it double-minded. God wants us to "clean the inside of the cup, to purify the drop, and to return to Him as his child of Righteousness.
How can we purify the drop? Let us read the following and try to understand the message of purification.
"Let us draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." "The aim of our change is love that issues from a pure heart, and a good conscience, and a sincere faith." (Heb 10:22, 1Tim 1:5)
"God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him." (Psalm 18:30)
The soul is deceitful above all things, and desperately such; who can understand it?
How can a man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to God's word. Store up God's word in your soul, that you might not sin. The word of God is essential in taking us from our "carnal" human nature (Rom 8:7) to "a perfect man." (Eph 4:13) But we must understand that it is not the reading, or the listening, or the talking about the word of God that purifies us, but the doing, the application of God's word that purifies the drop. If we don't take control of and change that evil soul we are connected to, how can purify the drop?
We must begin to live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God: for every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights. "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and for training in righteousness." (2Tim 3:16)
You have tried and tried to put the polluted drop back in the bowl but cannot re-connect because of the dirt. The drop remains separate, but it is still part of God no matter how polluted it has become, and thus retains remembrance of Righteousness.
You need to clean the drop by taking control of the soul and constantly flushing it with the "living waters" of scripture, driving the devil out.
You need to learn to quote scripture at the soul every time its evil head rises up from below, whispering rationalizations into your mind to gain entrance into and the control of your mind. You need to learn to call upon God to help you in the purification process as you cannot do it your self; the devil is too powerful, too cunning, too deceptive, and too clever.
You need to have Great patience and long perseverance. You need to fill the devil's evil soul with the word of God - fill it full. You need to quote scripture at the evil thoughts rising up from the soul below. You must become relentless in becoming Righteous once again, this is how we drive the devil away and keep him away. No matter what the soul wants us to do, keep doing, or return to doing, we use scripture to drive the evil, sinful thoughts away: this is how we suffer greatly in this world, destroying our false idols, the things we thought we loved.
Be as sojourners, as exiles, as passerbys in this evil world; be a watcher, but not a participant. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, by testing what is good and acceptable and perfect. Fight the soul and the devil by quoting scripture at them and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will be your guiding light to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives.
Everyone who is born again of God overcomes this world; it's the only way back home. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has been made available once again. Repent, which means "change your mind" by APPLYING the teachings of Jesus. As we read in Matthew 19:21,
