What Thinking Outside “The Box” Means for Christians
I roll my eyes when most people talk about thinking 'outside the box'. Why? Because although we have this feigned reverence for those who think outside of it, more often than not when they actually do, we mock them to scorn. Just what is ‘the box’ exactly? After all, before we can think outside of it we must first define what 'the box' is, and its boundaries. To me, the boundaries are simply where the average person draws the line between what is possible and what isn't, can we agree on that?
A lifetime of experience has shown me that for most people this box is not only very, very small, but is completely dictated by what the media tells us. We might be tempted to say that what our peers think is also important, but since their perception is also tainted by the media, the end result is the same.
We must keep in mind the occult way of thinking, which is that perception is reality. This is why so much effort is expended by them in managing the public’s perception of, well, just about everything. But we know in fact that perception is not really reality per se, but only our own subjective notion of it. For example, a paranoid schizophrenic may perceive that everyone is out to get them without it actually being so. But the underlying truth is that we all operate within our own reality bubbles, the parameters of our own ‘box’.
Now it seems obvious to me that a healthy, well-developed mind will be able to consider ideas outside of its established boundaries without going into full panic mode. It is in fact the weak-minded that are either unable or unwilling to grasp concepts outside of their comfort zones. Those people possessing these small, inferior minds will rather quickly give themselves away when challenged, because they will inevitably begin to ridicule the things outside of their reality bubbles. What seems to escape them is that simply considering ideas outside of our perceived reality doesn't behold us to accept them.
One example that immediately comes to mind are those who equate belief in God and/or Jesus Christ with some nonsensical “Flying Spaghetti Monster”. Look, when thousands of books and eyewitness accounts of said “Flying Spaghetti Monster” are found, perhaps people will start believing in him. But until that happens your comparison is absurd. It completely ignores the fact that multitudes have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which includes two-way communication. It is a logical fallacy for them to dismiss the existence of God just because they have not communicated with Him.
Do not allow these smug, ignorant fools to intimidate you. Satan is a thief, and he wants to steal your faith from you if possible (John 10:10 KJV). Don’t let him. If our faith is weak it is no one’s fault but our own. Build up your spirit man. Read your bible, pray, and put the things out of your life that drain our faith from us, like secular movies and television. You must understand that every show we watch is subtly teaching us by example how to live a Godless existence centered around our subjective irrational emotions and selfish interests.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of
the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,
even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because
that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were
thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was
darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
We must understand that these spiritually bankrupt souls would have Christians discount our own empirical experiences with God to accommodate their weak, faithless existences! Their truly sad lives locked into tiny boxes that someone else imposed upon them, yet they refuse to peek out of. It is like saying that France isn’t real just because I have never personally been there, or even tried to go. That’s how dim-witted they sound. Now let’s examine the box from a spiritual perspective.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all
things are possible to him that believeth.
You see a box there? I don’t see one. That’s because for Christians there simply is no box, according to Jesus! Or to put it another way, the parameters of your ‘box’ are directly proportional to the amount of faith that you have, which is potentially limitless! Glory to God! Can you see now why boxes are so dangerous to spiritual growth?
As a sidebar, I'd just like to throw in the fact that in Satan's kingdom there is a curse called 'caging'. While ministering to a woman that had been brought up in MKULTRA she mentioned a 'boxing' curse where they put a person in... a box, spiritually speaking. I believe this is the same situation that Kanye West found himself in after his programming unraveled. He called it "The sunken place" which is vividly depicted in the movie "Get Out" . In any case, the demon who seemed quite annoyed when I asked what the difference was between a cage and a box, snapped "You can see out of a cage!". Now as strange as this all sounds, I have personally not only witnessed, but God actually allowed me to briefly experience for myself what it feels like to have been caged. I sensed that something was very wrong, but I couldn't see what it was. It was only with much prayer and seeking God that it was abruptly broken, and when it happened I immediately knew who had done it. I told them it was broken and they simply said "I know" and blocked me on social media.
Let’s travel back to the days our precious Lord Jesus walked the earth. Was there a box in place back then? Oh yes there was… The Pharisees! They set themselves up as the arbiters of what God’s Law meant and how it should be applied. They took God’s Law and over time added countless absurd, foolish and often contradictory rules, created from their own vile imaginations. This was done specifically to prevent God’s people from ever escaping the letter of the Law. But Jesus came to set the captives free. Free from what exactly? The Law!
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the
prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon
the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to
Just what is that yoke (box, constraining force) that Peter is talking about? The Law! Jesus went to the cross to fulfill the Law for each one of us. That is why Paul taught that we are dead to the Law, our ‘old man’ having been reckoned dead (Romans 6:6-11 KJV). We are no longer under the Law, but under grace (Romans 6:14 KJV).
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it
saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and
all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the
law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the
knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is
manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Look, Paul makes it plain that some are still under the Law and it is still in effect. Yet, in the very next verse he says that by deeds of the Law none will be justified. You see, if anyone, even a single person could keep the Law perfectly, then they could and would be justified by it. But no mere mortal could! That is why God had to send down His son Jesus Christ to keep the Law perfectly for each of us! Glory to God! The Law exists now only for unbelievers to be convicted, and that because they have not availed themselves of Jesus' sacrifice for all mankind on the cross. To be under the Law is to be convicted by it, period.
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of
you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Are you starting to get an inkling of just how much the Pharisees hated Jesus? His whole purpose was to come down and destroy this box that they had created, this money-making scheme that they were using to enslave the people. Jesus made it possible for all of us to sidestep the Pharisees and their silly rules and have a direct relationship with God. Just to drive the point home he went into the synagogue and cast out the money changers who turned God’s house into a den of thieves! They took God’s Law and twisted it to gain filthy lucre!
This of course begs the question as to why those under the delusion of Hebrew Roots would voluntarily put themselves back into captivity to that heretical, stifling box, when scripture teaches us that to be under the Law is to be guilty of it. Paul plainly tells us that they have fallen from God’s grace. This means that they have made themselves no longer able to receive grace, so if they were to die in this state they would go straight to Hell! Please warn any Hebrew Roots proponents who will listen!
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and
perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and
they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Our God enjoys rubbing the faces of pompous hypocrites like the Pharisees in the pearls of wisdom He puts in the mouths of ‘unlearned’ men like Peter and John. Why?
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world
to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to
confound the things which are mighty;
A person working under the guidance of the Holy Spirit need never be concerned with saying the wrong thing. God likes nothing better than to take those full of pride and teachings of men and topple them like a house of cards. Look at the story of Stephen in the book of Acts. In Acts 7 we witness what I consider to be the greatest monologue ever spoken.
Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears,
ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of
the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them
which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now
the betrayers and murderers: Who have received the law by the disposition of
angels, and have not kept it.
Stephen, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit appears before the High Priest and point by point addresses every wickedness the Pharisees have committed starting back with Abraham. The Holy Spirit operating through Stephen so profoundly convicts these wicked men and everything they hold dear, that they can only respond by stoning him to death! Take note of Stephen's condemnation of the Pharisees uncircumcised hearts and ears. You see, accusing a Pharisee of being uncircumcised is a great insult to them, because it is the source of their great pride and what they believe separates them from the goyim (1 Samuel 17:26 KJV). But the truth is that it is only the circumcision of the heart that has ever mattered to God (Deuteronomy 10:16, Deuteronomy 30:6, Jeremiah 4:4 KJV). Physical circumcision was never more than an outward sign of this spiritual circumcision (Genesis 17:11 KJV). Swallow a camel, strain at a gnat, that's the Pharisees for you.
The story of Stephen in fact parallels that of Christ in several key ways. It is not heresy to make this comparison, it is in fact the job of every Christian to live our lives as Christ did. When we are living lives that shake the spirit world evil forces are dispatched against us by the enemy. I can personally attest to this, as I had a long period of time when witches were directing a lot of attention my way. I have written about this in past articles in some detail. They were trying to get me to yoke with them, insisting that God had sent them to be my helpmates. After a while they gave up, and I entered a long period of attack on my health which continues today.
Folks, I have some bad news for you. If you are not familiar with being under spiritual attack I am afraid it is because you aren’t living your life in a way that puts you in direct opposition to Satan. Reality check; if you aren't being targeted by Satan it is only because you are not a threat to his kingdom. Is that how you want to be seen by Satan, and God for that matter? It is so easy to try and go about our business trying to fly under the radar as secret 007 Christians, but God will not allow that to continue for long. What about that time someone you know made fun of Christians and you just clammed up? Did you think God didn’t take notice?
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him
will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall
deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in
Sure, you probably almost convinced yourself that it was the ‘polite’ thing to do, but you know what? Political correctness is overrated. Friends, don’t you know that if you cannot manage to elicit a confession of Jesus Christ as your savior now, when all it will probably cost are some weird looks or nasty comments, you won’t ever be able to when it’s your life that is on the line?
And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them
that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will
forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath
power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
