Magic Bible Verse - Stops Sin in its Track


We often think sin is a physical act. We try to keep ourselves from doing these physical acts. The end result is we fall. The reason is the battle ground for sin is in the mind. Eve saw that the fruit was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise. The lust came from the mind. Once the thought matured, she acted on it. Jesus said if you lust after a women, you already committed adultery. If you are angry with someone, you will already be judged as if you committed murder. Therefore, even before the physical act, if our thoughts dwells on sin, we will already be judged.
Satan constantly plants thoughts in our head day and night. Once a thought takes hold, the next thing is we will do the sin. Humans are imaginative beings. Satan knows how to give us imaginations. His attack is two prong. He gives us a desirable imagination. He also presents the alternative as unbearable boredom and tedium. The end result is predictable. We latch onto the desirable imagination.

We must move our defense further forward. If you try to defend against the actual act of sin, you already lost. Satan’s imagination already took hold in your mind. You are now on a losing ground to keep yourself from the physical sin feeling oppressed the whole time. When you do sin, you do so in a spectacular fashion. Satan tempted Christ. The first thing Jesus did was use the word of God to defend himself. That is incredibly powerful. What worked for Jesus will also work for us.

We probably have not memorized a whole lot of Bible verse like Jesus did. If there is just one Bible verse, that will be enough to get us thru. We need that magical Bible verse that works in every battle. Here is the full verse, but just memorized the last line.
(2 Corinthians 10:3–6 KJV) “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

Bible is the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Eph 6:17. Word of God is sharper than any two edged sword. It cuts to the bone and marrow. Heb 4:12. In spiritual warfare, the word itself must carry a spiritual force that Satan is deathly afraid of. God must be so powerful that just reading what he said is enough to cause Satan to retreat. Once you realize how powerful a few words are, use them often. Use them as preventive war when you know temptation is coming.
As soon as a thought come up in your head, immediately reach for these word. The earlier you do it, the better off you are. The difference is literally a few seconds. Once sinful desire takes hold, your will is weakened, and you won’t reach for the words anymore.
Soon as you have a sinful desire, say these words three times:

I bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
I bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
I bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

You will feel Satan leave. Sinful thoughts will melt away. Is like Harry Potter’s magic casting a spell. Wave the wand, say the spell three times and poof, Satan leaves. (I am just trying to describe a spiritual truth. That was really not an edifying movie.).
Note in the verse, it said casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God. The Bible verse works for sinful imaginations as well as thoughts that attacks your faith. When people say there is no God, and here is the reason why. They may say it just as you go thru a difficult time in life. That thought can attack your faith, and shake it to the core. Immediately say the verse three times. The evil spirit is trying to exalt itself against the knowledge of God. Say the verse, and just look at your hand. Move your fingers. You see the glory of God right there. Enough said.
