Words spoken by Jesus as recorded by the Disciple Mark (second book of New Testament)
Hearken unto Me everyone of you, and understand.
There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
And when He was entered into the house from the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. And He saith unto them,
Are ye so without understanding also?
Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into man, it cannot defile him; because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
That which cometh out of the man; that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, laciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: all these evil things come from within, and defile a man.
The Word of God clearly speaks to all men and women as to what God sees in us that is evil and asks us to understand that the evil that is in our hearts is not acceptable to Him.
We must be on a course to rid ourselves of that evil that comes out of us.
However God knew we could not do this without His help. His Son had to be Sacrificed as a payment for our sins. Those of us who would accept His Sacrifice, are to thank Him for the Blood that washes us clean, and for releasing the Holy Spirit into the world for us to grow and learn the spiritual reality of life.
Our hearts influence our mind.
A dark and evil heart will have dark and evil thoughts and dark and evil actions will be the engine that drives our life; revenge, anger, hate, jealousy, cunning, suspiciousness, covetousness, maliciousness and all the other foolishnesses that bring mayhem into the world.
We allow the evil demons to infiltrate our hearts and show us the things which God does not want us to see and we get hooked and rationalize to ourselves that we are justified in thinking "this" way, because of; my childhood, my parents, my job, I deserve, me, me me, I, I, I and etc.
No, read again the Words of Jesus. The devil and his army of demons are WRONG!!!
Get out of their entrapment NOW!!!
First step. Tell the Father that you need a Saviour and accept His Son Jesus as your Redeemer God.
Second step. Accept the Word of God as your Guide Book for Life, and read it. (Begin with New Testament)
Third step. Speak to God any time. He is with you always.
Fourth step. Stay the course and grow from a baby believer to a mature knowledgable believer able to show others the Way.
Fifth step. When death comes be ready for a joyous reunion of your soul with Holy God. No need to fear death for any believer - baby or otherwise.
