RSMI's Believers Bible Fellowship Notes

March 2nd 2011

Whats Happening In Your Heart?

Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”


Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,”

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

A statement was made with a question

We are suppose to trust and follow our hearts
Question: What if your mind tells you something different?

1. Your heart is the most inward part of your soul
2. Your heart contains your thoughts and intents. (Hebrews 4:12)
3. If your mind (soul) is renewed by the Word of God then your heart which receives Gods Word, will be in agreement with, your spirit, which is created in the likeness of God our Father.
4. If our heart and soul are not healed and renewed- go to Gods Word for direction even if you have doubts in your mind. We must have peace or agreement in our heart.

Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

Our body contains our soul
Our soul contains our spirit
At the center of our soul is our heart which is the hiding place of our spirit. (1Peter 3:4)
The real you is your spirit, which comes directly from God your Father.

Romans 7:17-20 “Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me."

Sin dwells in our body
Sin is a thing
Sin is a noun, and a verb
Sin is an infection, you must dominate.

We cannot find answers in our body, for that is where sin resides. We must find answers from God and His Word, which must reside in our heart!

Your heart was created to contain your spirit and receive Gods Word! It is in our heart that Gods word can be received and believed.

Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Your heart was created to believe thoughts. That’s its purpose!

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Intents: ( Greek word ennoia)
1) the act of thinking, consideration, meditation
2) a thought, notion, conception
3) mind, understanding, will, manner of feeling, and thinking

Thoughts (Greek enthymēsis)
1) A thinking, consideration
2) Thoughts

Jesus said, in Matthew 6:31 “Therefore take no thought, saying…”

Thoughts are simply unspoken words.

Our heart will contain Gods Word, His thoughts, or, some else’s?
The battle is in our hearts.

What happens in your heart determines what you think, feel, believe and do.
