Below is the excerpts of the message delivered by the founder and senior pastor of House On The Rock Church, Lekki Cathedral, Pastor Paul Adefarasin on the message titled: “Delivered From Slavery Mentality.”
There is a difference between being delivered from slavery and being delivered from slave mentality.
The purpose to which the “born-again man” is born into the earth is to show God’s glory on earth.
You can have a great born again spirit but if your mind is not aligned with it all you have is a born again spirit.
You have a born-again spirit that has not manifested the realities of Christ, if you do not renew your mind.
As God deals with you, He reminds you that the rejected one has become royalty, that it is time to mature into who He has already made you.
If you are a child of God, you are royalty and your life will manifest it.
Your royalty is from forever to forever, its Priesthood is powered by the power of an endless life.
A man who is inwardly a slave cannot deliver people who are outwardly slaves.
Moses was raised as a prince to provide deliverance to his brethren who were slaves.
We don’t become what we want to become, we become what we see at the watering hole of our imagination.
If you spend your life reacting to what you don’t want to be, you’ll end up keeping what you don’t want to be in your mind and that is what you will become.
You are not what you think you are, you are not what others think you are, but you are what you think others think you are.
“You are not what you think you are, you are not what others think you are, you are what you think the most important person in your life thinks you are”. – John Maxwell
When the most important person in your life is God, you become what you think that God, (the most important person in your life) thinks you are.
If you think wrongly about what God thinks about you. That is what you’ll become.
You cannot change your own life, but when you change your thinking, it will change your life.
In order for God to bless Jacob, He changed his name (his identity).
Sticks and stones may break your bones but accepting the wrong nickname could destroy your future. A name tells us who you are.
Everytime people call you, they are agreeing with the prophetic name your parents gave you at birth. When people don’t know you in the spirit, they will mistake your reputation for your prophecy. Too many people live under aliases and aliases are dangerous.
You’re no longer a sinner if you are saved by grace. Romans 3:28, you are made righteous not by your performance but by believing that you are the righteousness of Christ.
Its no longer your nature to sin. Not that you cannot sin or that it’s impossible for you to sin but sin is no longer your nature.
The whole purpose of God getting all things to work together for your good is because He predestined you for glory.
The world will continue to walk in darkness until you manifest.
Everytime you think poorly of yourself, you are insulting the God who made you. Everytime you feel bad about yourself, it is not humility, it is stupidity.
No man knows the things of man but the spirit of that man. What you think is your prophetic direction.
Start using your God-mind, it is an enjoyable way to live life.
Stop thinking of what people think of you and start thinking of what the most important person in your life, GOD, thinks.
