Are you troubled with the things of this world, being distracted from the purpose of God? Listen to hear the recipe Jesus gave to be set free from the things of this world.
Welcome to Celebrating God’s Grace, A Women World Leader’s Podcast, I’m your host Robin Kirby-
Thank you for joining us today as we celebrate God’s grace, in our lives, in our ministry, and around the world.
Today’s Title: God’s grace in setting us free from the kingdom of the world.
19 “Do not gather and heap up and store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust and worm consume and destroy, and where thieves break through and steal. 20 But gather and heap up and store for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust nor worm consume and destroy, and where thieves do not break through and steal; 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is sound, your entire body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is unsound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the very light in you [your conscience] is darkened, how dense is that darkness!” Matthew 6:19-23 AMPC
Matthew 6 is a core chapter for the saint, a premise laid out by Christ Jesus in order for us to be cleansed of the things of this world, this is God’s grace.
Wherever our treasure is, there our heart will be, also. If our heart is full of the things of this world, through the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, our conscience will be darkened. The parable of the eye being the lamp of the body, represents the conscience. Light in scripture is a metaphor for truth. This is seen in the core parable after the sower of seed, in Mark 4:21-25, where Jesus teaches that when you bring a candlelight into the room, you don’t hide it under a peck measure or bed, but you put it on the lampstand to be seen.
He then explains that things are hidden temporarily to be made known, and that whatever we give our attention to, will be added unto us. I get into detail at how our senses are the diet for the soul in my book Mindfulness, the Mind of Christ. It’s in this book that I explain the G Protein-Coupled Receptor, otherwise known as the GPCR, in which memories are stored throughout the body on all our cells. Moreover, scientists have proven that the GPCR is responsible for your perception and behavior, thereby revealing your conscience.
Imagine going into an ice cream store, where there are hundreds of flavors. That’s the best way to look at the GPCR; half the flavors discovered thus far of the GPCR are up to 1,000 different flavors, with still more yet to be discovered. Like ice cream, it has the same type of receptor, which is folded seven-times, external to the cell, creating a domino effect, once triggered, to intracellular activity. Up to 480 plus flavors, of the 1,000 discovered to date, are for senses. You heard that right. You have senses inside of your body, all throughout your cells, and these senses even help regulate your organs.
Even more incredible, the GPCR stores memories, and when a neuropeptide and/or frequency hits that receptor, memories start unpacking within our body, what you and I know of as emotion. I go into extensive detail in the book Mindfulness the Mind of Christ, how we are pruned as in John 15:2 at the receptor level of memories that are of the kingdom of the world. This is further evaluated and dissected in my upcoming book The Forbidden Fruit, the Spiritual Disease.
I’ve experienced massive supernatural deliverances beginning in 2002 to 2005, and God had put it in me, to desire a hunger and thirst of His Word, to comprehend what went on inside of my body, while the mind was freaked out, clueless as to what was occurring, as the power of Holy Spirit drove oppressive spirits out. As a result, the culmination of a decade’s worth of writing workbooks and books on scripture and the sciences, culminated into the knowledge from God, unfolding the LIGHT OF TRUTH in the Word.
“And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.” John 8:32 AMPC
The Greek word for truth is alḗtheia pronounced al-ay'-thi-a meaning, “truth, true, truly, and verity.” [i] This comes from the two Greek words alpha meaning “beginning,” and lanthánō pronounced lan-than'-o meaning, “to lie hid, be ignorant, and unawares.” The unique thing about this combination of alpha and lanthánō, is that alpha at the beginning, negates the meaning of the word that follows. Thus, what has been hidden is no longer hidden, but revealed. I love this because Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega. He is the Beginning and the End. Jesus always brings us truth to what’s hidden in the heart.
Therefore, the parable of bringing a light into the room, is a metaphor for the Light of Truth piercing the darkness, which is the Life of Jesus in John 1:4-5. In Him was life and that life is the light of men, and the light pierces the darkness, and the darkness cannot overtake it, put it out, and is unreceptive to the light.
Therefore, JESUS the Light, is greater than the darkness of the world. When we come to Christ Jesus, we work out our salvation in fear and in trembling as in Philippians 2:12, being pruned of the influence of the kingdom of the world. This leads us back to the beginning of this podcast, to the scriptures from Matthew 6.
Jesus is addressing the issue of the body, whether it is consecrated, by exposing that whatever it is you treasure in this life, is where your heart is, either making the conscience pure to reveal the Kingdom of God or darkening it with the kingdom of the world.
This is where grace comes in. All the verses in Matthew 6:1-18, address Jesus’ instruction of how we can ensure that we’re free of this world. He starts out by telling us to give, where our left hand doesn’t know what our right hand is doing. In other words, it is the work of God in us, willing us to give to ministries and others.
Next, Jesus instructs us on praying, and that we’re not to pray to get attention, but instead we’re to be humble and pray simply, the Lord’s prayer. Finally, Jesus instructs us to fast, whereby it frees us from the fleshly appetites of the world.
I can tell you for certain with all my health and wellness clients that I coach, I can always tell who is fasting. Those that fast, have less problems, a deeper prayer life, understanding of the Word, and walk with the Lord.
I also pick up quickly, with the Lord’s prompting, as I listen to people and the problems they might be dealing with, as well as the areas in which their body needs to be pruned at the receptor level of the kingdom of the world, that the person is missing out on one of the three instructions set forth by Jesus. They might say I’m fasting and praying, and I then ask, “are you giving? Do you give tithes? Do you give offerings?” When asked, the reply is generally no. At this time, I then go back to Matthew 6, and remind them of what Jesus, the Son of God, instructed us to do, to be free of the world.
Understand, that before even getting to this point, I’ve addressed the issue of hormonal imbalance and physical health, to rule out any issue within their own body that might be hindering their ability to follow through. Even more, I know whether they’re doing the Bittersweet taste test as laid out in scripture that Jesus Christ and John the Baptist did, as well as God calling His people Israel to do, which I teach extensively in Chapters 6 and 9 of Mindfulness the Mind of Christ. It is that taste test that aids the body in being consecrated from the things of this world. God isn’t just a spiritual God, because He knows how fearful and wonderfully made, we are; He created us. In creating us, He also planned out a natural supplementation through His creation, to aid the body in the process of Romans 12:1-2, being consecrated so the mind can be transformed.
Many people try to get deliverance from the head down to the body, when scripture clearly reveals that the conscience is inside of the heart. The Bittersweet taste test that God reveals in scripture happens to hit the GPCR taste bud in the body. JUST WOW! Moreover, He shows that we have eyes in our heart through the opsin GPCR, which is what Ephesians 1:18 is referring to, that the eyes of our heart be flooded with Light! This is freedom, this is deliverance!
Where is it you need freedom? Are you struggling with the issue of judging others, addictions, or behaviors of the world, causing your conscience to be darkened? If so, read Matthew 6, and Jesus’ instructions on obtaining freedom, by giving, praying, and fasting.
