Purity Of Thought

By THE SPIRIT it is written in Exodus 28:

36 “You shall also make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet:


37 And you shall put it on a blue cord, that it may be on the turban; it shall be on the front of the turban.

38 So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.

Aaron was to wear a turban with a pure plate of gold covering his forehead representing a Divine, pure thought life.  The purity of thought allowed the children of Israel to be acceptable before FATHER.  FATHER began teaching us a lesson about our thought life as HE instructed Aaron to wear this gold plate on his forehead.  Our thought life is where our battle is fought and as we take on Jesus’ Divine nature (gold) through salvation, we become acceptable to FATHER.

FATHER sees us through Jesus Who sits at FATHER’S right hand thus we are perpetually acceptable in HIS eyes.  This is a result of Jesus taking on the curse of mankind and it was represented by another crown as written in John chapter 19:

5 Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the Man!”

This too was necessary as Jesus Who had purity of thought was required to receive all the impure thoughts (curses) of the world and overcome them by the cross.  Knowing this we must not allow impure thoughts to rule us in any manner for we have been give the victory over our thought life by Christ Jesus.  We can and will change as we take on Christ in our lives.

In Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter 14 verse 14 Jesus is described as “One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown”.  Jesus is eternally accepted by FATHER so we too are eternally accepted by FATHER.  Jesus will receive more crowns at His feet when the kings of the earth accept Him as well.  In chapter 4 it is written:

10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

​11 ​​“You are worthy, O Lord,

​​To receive glory and honor and power;

​​For You created all things,

​​And by Your will they exist and were created.”

The twenty-four elders realized that their lives were as a result of FATHER’S acts and submitted their thought life wholly to FATHER and His Son sitting at HIS right hand.  As we receive and embrace the revelation that IN HIM we have our being, we too will submit our thought life to HIM and we will maintain pure thoughts no matter what the enemy attempts in our lives.  The enemy wants us to focus on ourselves and exalt ourselves above Christ so we must resist by taking every thought captive and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of GOD.

We are to proclaim and declare “As He is so am I.”  If I am accepted purely because of Jesus Christ sitting at FATHER’S right Hand then I am speaking Truth to my mind.  Jesus called the disciples in Luke 24:25 “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!”  Let us not be slow to believe so that we can maintain purity of heart and thought.  Jesus has provided The Way for us to walk in this manner but it is up to us to believe what is written by THE SPIRIT.  We must overcome and cast down any thought which would keep us in bondage.  Jesus has provided the means and it is our individual responsibility to maintain purity of thought.
