The helmet of salvation protects the mind of the Christian. The mind of the redeemed is being renewed to the mind of Christ by the scriptures through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Mind in the Greek is “nous” and this means the faculties of perceiving and understanding and those of feeling, judging, determining, the capacity for spiritual truth, the higher powers of the soul, and the faculty of perceiving divine things, of recognizing goodness and of hating evil,
the power of considering and judging soberly, calmly and impartially. (Strong’s concordance)

Our carnal mind needs to be reprogrammed from the old way of thinking and renewed or made new by thinking the way God wants us to think. This is done by the scriptures through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Rom. 12:2 – “be transformed by the renewing of your mind”
Eph. 4:23 – “be renewed in the spirit of your mind” (Read all the chapter)
Col. 3:10 – “the new man is being renewed to a true knowledge of him who created him.” (Read all the chapter)

Matt. 22:37 – “Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength”

The mind of Christ will have the following attributes.
Lowly, humble, submissive, not proud, haughty or boastful. (Not even about how great a Christian one is or who they are in Christ. The bible says to boast in the Lord only.)

Philippians 2:5
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.

Being of no reputation means not bragging and boasting about who you are or what you have done. (Even in the ministry) In heaven only Jesus is glorified and boasted about so it should be no different while we are on this earth.

Col. 3:2 – “set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth……..” (Read all the chapter)

The mind of Christ is forgiving, obedient, serving God and not people pleasing, speaking the truth, honest in communication, truthful, merciful, kind, meek, patient, at peace, thankful, filled with grace and worship, single hearted.

The mind of Christ thinks on Phil. 4 (Read all the chapter) what is honest, pure, what is right, what is encouraging. The mind of Christ is prayerful, always rejoicing, content in all circumstances and trusting in God.

When we have on salvation (Jesus) as our head we are under his authority and represent him. The more we pray and ask God to transform our minds by his word the more he will do just that until we are thinking and acting like him!

Salvation is the helmet that protects the head against the blows of the enemy’s attacks on the mind. It protects against error and false doctrines and all the crafty arguments of the devil.

If you put God’s word in our heart by memorizing scriptures, (1 Peter 1:13 , “gird up the loins of your mind.”) you will have a sober and sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7, the Word of God says, “For God hath not give us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

And again in 1 Thessalonians 5:8
“But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on the hope of salvation as a helmet. “

Titus 1:15 says that the unsaved have carnal minds, filled with fear, dread ,and worldliness. , “… unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”

Covered in the blood of Jesus and by reading God’s word, studying God’s word and memorizing God’s word you will be fully equipped to cast down every high minded thoughts and ideologies that exalt themselves about the word of God and to stand in the evil day. (Enemy attacks)

I pray that with the helmet of salvation on your head ……..”That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.” Ephesians 1:17-23

Child Evangelism in different communities. Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
