Heart Belief – The Missing Ingredient PART 1

Joseph LephiewLiving Life Without Limits, Series, Sermons

SERMON NOTES

We have been given the ability to life our life without limits by God. The challenge is many who are called believers are not living this abundant over the top life. We are are on a journey to understand why and change our lives.

Formula———Renewing the mind, establishing the heart and transforming your personal belief system = HEART BELIEF. HEART BELIEF IS THE SOLUTION TO LIVING A LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS.

We talk faith, we preach faith, but the world is hungry for a Christian Faith that works…that produces results. The world has seen and heard but they judge based on sight and if they do not see results they may not believe.

“And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].”
ROMANS 12:2 AMP

Imagine making chocolate chip cookies you have every ingredient except sugar. That missing ingredient will change everything. They will look, smell and feel like chocolate chip cookies but when you taste them, exactly.

We will get a better biblical understanding that will change our perspective on how we see the Kingdom of God. Unless you transform the blueprint of your thinking to success (the Kingdom of God), nothing you learn, nothing you know, and nothing you do will make any difference.

Illustration: Big colored glasses and look at something. I can not truly see it as what it really is till I remove the colored glasses. I can tell you its Gods Will for you to have abundance and prosperity healing and wholeness, etc but until you take the glasses off of your preconceived subconscious thoughts, you’ll view your life through the lenses of your self-limiting beliefs.

4 PRINCIPLES FOR LIMITLESS LIVING: 1. Not conformed to this world (system), 2. Transformed, 3. By renewing of your mind, and 4. Prove the perfect will of God.

Quote: It’s not what we don’t know that prevents us from succeeding, it is what we know or believe to know that is just not so.

PRINCIPLE #1: NOT CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD (SYSTEM). Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world any longer.” Conform comes from two words, the prefix “con” which means with or together with and “form” which means shape, way or pattern of doing something. Conformed means we do not want to be apart of the pattern or way of doing something according to the world or this worlds system.

All you can produce is what is natural to that system. In the human natural world system and way of thinking and believing you can only access what is in this system or order. In God’s System you can access the Kingdom of Heaven’s resources as a result of what Christ finished. The world system is limited and Gods Kingdom system is Unlimited. Natural or Supernatural. The world system is a thought process that is alienated from God’s System of Thought. The worlds system is the thoughts, opinions, speculations of people who operate outside of God’s System.

God has Implanted many of His Laws in the world. This is why the worlds system does have the ability to have productivity, but it can’t access God’s Supernatural provisions or find Gods Peace and fulfillment apart from circumstances going right. This is why some people in the worlds system have success, but many times it is not what God calls GOOD SUCCESS.

GOOD GOD SUCCESS: Joshua 1:8.

“The blessing of the LORD brings [true] riches, And He adds no sorrow to it [for it comes as a blessing from God].”
Proverbs 10:22

The world’s success and God’s success have different results. In the world you lie, cheat, sacrifice family time, etc.

Conformed to this world means to conform to the same patten as, to squeeze into the mold of, the world’s way of dong things.

“Repent [change your inner self–your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
MATTHEW 3:2 AMP

This scripture for most is just about sin and asking forgiveness but it is so much more. Repent means to think differently, to change our thinking, or to have another mind. Change your thinking because you can’t access the Kingdom thinking the way you are thinking right now. We go to church, work in the church, share our faith, tithe, yet still we are not accessing all of His Kingdom.

The Kingdom of Heaven for sure means the rule and reign of God, but it is also the location and resources of God. God has provided EVERYTHING we need for life and godliness. He did it by grace, unmerited favor, AND PLACED IT IN HIS KINGDOM FOR YOU TO ACCESS BY FAITH.

Kingdom of God and world work totally opposite of each other. The Kingdom of Heaven says if you want to receive you have to give. If you want to increase you must decrease. If you want to become great you must become the least. If you want to be first, you must be last. If you want to live you must die. If you want people to serve you, you must serve them. The Kingdom of Heaven operates the OPPOSITE of the world, and to access it we must change the way we think. When you got saved and born again you received salvation but our thinking is so much from the world and life.

The same reason Gods people when they were set free from Egypt and bondage but because of the way of thinking and believing they could not access Gods Promised Land.

Matthew 6:10 “Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.” Is there sickness in Heaven, no. Is there poverty in Heaven, no. Is there hate in Heaven, no. We are supposed to have the same results here on earth as in Heaven. We agree something is missing.

This is Gods plan from the beginning for man, us.

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Genesis 1:26 KJV.

The word, “dominion” men’s to rule over, subjugate, dominate, govern.

4 LAWS OF GENESIS 1:26

1. Legal authority to dominate the earth and was given to mankind.

2. God did not include Himself in the legal authority structure over the earth. (LET THEM)

3. Any influence or interference from the supernatural realm is only legal through mankind.

4. God made Himself subjugated to His Laws, and He will not violate His Own Laws.

This means Man has to authorize and initiate God’s Kingdom into manifestation by obeying Kingdom Laws. We must align our thinking with Kingdom Laws and obey them to release the full provision of God’s Kingdom. When we do Kingdom Laws like prayer, giving, tithing, faith, love, is the authorization and initiation for Heaven to interfere and influence earth’s affairs.

OBEYING KINGDOM LAWS AUTHORIZES AND INITIATES THE KINGDOM TO MANIFEST. PROVISION, BLESSINGS, AND HEALINGS ARE THE RESULTS OF REPENTING (CHANGING OUR THINKING) TO ALIGN TO KINGDOM THINKING, IF YOU DON’T, HE WON’T.
IF YOU DON’T, HE WON’T.

The opposite of KINGDOM THINKING, is the “flesh”. The flesh means trying to do God’s Will your way. It is a Mindset that dictates our actions, away from a Kingdom Mentality. This is the natural mentality. John 6:63 says, “the flesh profits nothing.”

Think from a business standpoint. Who would invest your life, health, money, family, destiny for something that profits nothing? Yet we do it most of time.

TO BE IN SPIRIT MEANS TO THINK OF GOD, TO THINK LIKE GOD, AND TO THINK FROM GOD. When a crisis happens we most of the time go flesh, we worry, get mad, angry, afraid, etc. You must train yourself to immediately THINK OF GOD, TO THINK LIKE GOD, AND TO THINK FROM GOD.

IF WE DON’T GO KINGDOM, we are moving in the flesh and get stuck in the natural because we are doing things in the flesh.

To think like God means, once you think of God, you think according to His Kingdom Laws. Once these things are solidified or solid in you, you think from God. You let His Word and His Voice guide you.

REPENTANCE changes your thinking to think LIKE GOD. Repentance is not about self-punishment or suffering to earn the right to be blessed again. That is Religion, WE ARE RELATIONSHIP.

THE 5-FOLD PROCESS OF REPENTANCE

1. IDENTIFICATION: What is the shortcoming, boundary, or self-limiting belief?

2. ANTIDOTE: What is the God mindset to break the boundary? If I say I am broke, the antidote is more than enough.

3. REVELATION: Let God’s Word become revelation to you to create the proper thinking to break your present limitations. Revelation is something you know, but never realized. It starts with renewing your mind. Romans 12:2

4. REPETITION: This is what solidifies revelation in your Personal Belief System.

5. RETHINKING: Identification to antidote to revelation to repetition creates RETHINKING.
RETHINKING EQUALS TO EXPECTANCY, WHICH GIVES WAY TO FAITH.

The only way to break free from the world’s system and to tap into the MANIFESTATION OF HIS KINGDOM is to allow the WORD OF GOD TO TRANSFORM YOUR THINKING.

Amen.
