Negatives are created in the Dark – Strongholds

Posted on: February 19, 2014

REVISED 2.19.14

Romans 12:2  (Daria) “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

I heard a film manager at Click Camera say “negatives are produced in the dark.” I let that set with me throughout the day and realized “God will put us in a dark place – to give it light. But if I don’t come out of darkness myself – I remain in NEGATIVE! Because I care I share.  If you are a negative person – I am praying for you – I used to be YOU.


December 9, 2013 (Thank YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS REMINDER Nancy Sumlin)

I wanted to share what a dear friend and spiritual mentor of mine sent me yesterday – how timely this message was. It was as if God whispered into Nancy’s ear and said “Daria needs to be reminded from another Saint who is NOT for satan seeks to destroy her and other believers as they strive to Build my Kingdom.” Expect people who judge you and evaluate you by their standards or lack of – to operate from a mindset that they are always right and “this is just I am “as they often say as they mock others for praying or witnessing too much (in their opinion). PRAY for them to have liberty from every stronghold as you confess YOUR OWN. Where the spirit of the LORD IS THERE IS LIBERTY! As my Pastor Chad A. White, Sr would say “this is a Cinderella message (sermon) if the shoe fits where it.”

Subject: MINDSETS; Strongholds – by Apostle Maldonando Guillermo

 Whatever your mind is set on, you are conformed to, and it will become your reality. A set mind resists change. Though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,  casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. —2 Corinthians 10:3-6The Lord does not prohibit Satan from waging war against you in various realms, including the mind. Every believer has a mental battle.

Wherever your mind goes, there your life will go We live in a time in which many things are being shaken so in every fight, there are always casualties of war. There is a fight in the mind of every believer, and that battle is increasing and ongoing, and every day the mind is one of the realms where a battle takes place. Your mindset will determine your reality.

What is a stronghold?

  1. A stronghold is a place from where something or someone operates.
  1. A stronghold is a fortress or a castle that is built throughout your life.
  1. Strongholds are lies of the enemy that hide in human reason and wait for your agreement or approval.
  1. Every stronghold is based upon an argument that is based on reason; every argument is based on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; and every argument is based on fact.

Fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) comes when a word is spoken because words release imaginations

  1. A stronghold takes hold and constantly modifies your behavior in order to constrain you. After some time, the stronghold becomes the place we refer to as “the comfort zone”; this is where people resist change. Strongholds are generational; you pass your mindset on to your children.
  1. A stronghold is a rigid mental structure that limits a person from seeing, sensing, or perceiving in the spirit realm. Therefore it is impossible to walk in the supernatural with a stronghold in place.

You will have fellowship with any thought you entertain. A stronghold contains theories, arguments, concepts, and imaginations. Where did the mindset of being poor or of being no good come from? It comes from our culture, education, and environment. When many say you will not make it, their words become strongholds. Bring the thought into your head, but it’s up to you to agree or approve it.

 What does a stronghold do to you?

Prevents perception                  Modifies your behavior

 Limits God’s perspective of your future        Resists change.

The truth comes before, through, and after the fact. The truth is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The stronghold of unbelief will hold you back from your destiny and is capable of aborting it. It is impossible to stay free with strongholds that have not been pulled down by a renewed mindset. Today, repent before God for allowing and approving any type of mental stronghold to manifest in your life, and ask God to destroy every stronghold. In Jesus’ name, be free of every stronghold, and begin to hold on to the promises God has for your life. Amen!
