“But we have the mind of Christ;” in that He said, “For ALL things that I have heard from my Father, I have made known to you.” ~~ AKJV: I Corinthians 2:16 and John 15:15

Jesus also said, “Many are called but few chosen.” Considering the above, He added, “You have not chosen me, rather I have chosen you and ordained you to go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain. If the world hates you, then know it hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you: but because you are not of the world, because I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; but, if they obey my words, then they will obey yours as well.” ~~ AKJV: Matthew 20:16; 22:14; John 15:16-20

 The Mind of Christ:  

1. Christ was and is the Son of God and upon Him, the Rock, is built His church; for He served as the second witness of His Father’s Will, the Father being the first witness of His Will. And, both testified of one another, being one in agreement. Christ was baptized by water and instructed that believers were to be also baptized.

2. Christ taught that believers are changed from the inside out, a stony heart converted to soft flesh, whereupon is written God’s Law originally written on tables of stone; that believers obey God’s Law from a heart of love.

3. Christ was obedient to God’s Will, His Doctrine of Twelve Commandments: Christ, the first fruit of righteousness who also reaped fruits of righteous believers by living and teaching God’s ways and He taught believers to do the same. Therefore, Christ was baptized by the Holy Spirit and stated that believers must likewise be baptized.

4. Christ was taught ALL things by the Holy Spirit as the first chosen among men and promised that mature believers also would be taught ALL things by the Holy Spirit.

5. Christ forgave even the worst of offenses, as evidenced upon the cross when He asked the Father to forgive His executioners, and He consistently gave good for evil even when being persecuted and lied about; in this He taught us to do the same.

6. Christ endured rather than retaliating against trials and persecution, not even fearing for His own life; for He had faith that His Father would resurrect Him and assures the believers of the same resurrection for enduring ALL trials and persecution.

7. Christ consistently spoke God’s Truth to all who would understand and obey— fruit of saving lost sheep— and He taught the believers to do the same for the same purpose, to save lost sheep.

8. Christ knew and believed that ALL things are possible with God and He taught believers to know and believe the same.

9. Christ had a good understanding of ALL things because He obeyed the Father’s Will, which has been and always will be that of His Twelve Commandments: these being separate and apart from all of Moses’ ordinances. He assured believers that by obedience they, too, would have a good understanding of ALL things.

10. Christ knew and believed God’s Will and Doctrine to be God’s Commandments, which by believers doing means they know both the Father and Christ, and He taught the same to the believers.

11. By the Holy Ghost, Christ was filled with ALL wisdom, spiritual understanding, knowledge of God and His secrets and mysteries, thus was a guardian of those secrets and mysteries; by way of the Holy Spirit, giving them only to those mature in the Word of God: those who demonstrate love and obedience. He promised that believers also would be filled by the Holy Spirit with ALL with which He was filled, cautioning them not to cast their pearls— God’s secrets and mysteries— before swine.

12. Christ possessed internal happiness, peace, and freedom such as the world cannot understand and He did not lack basic necessities, and Jesus is called great in heaven for having lived and taught His Father’s Law. He assured believers of having the same for doing and teaching as He did.

13. Christ was anointed with all the gifts of the Spirit, gifts of all of God’s power, and promised that obedient believers would be given select gifts of power, as well, according to God’s purpose for each believer, and instructed that the gifts are to be used for the benefit of brethren believers.

14. Christ was free of ALL fears common to unbelievers and promised that obedient believers also would be free of ALL fears; for Christ knows that the fearful and faint of heart cannot not enter the gates of God’s heavenly or Christ’s earthly Kingdoms, just as those who continue in sins of whatsoever nature cannot enter the gates.

One is not chosen thus not saved unless he or she has the mind of Christ. As Jesus said, “Many are called, but few are chosen.” It should behoove all readers to look up and read each of the above scripture references, that they might discern whether or not they have Christ’s mind; and, to determine what things they need to do that are not currently being done, which lack of certain spiritual behaviours will prevent a person from having Christ’s mind. Without the mind of Christ, utter destruction is the only end toward which such a one can look.

Do you have the mind of Christ? Do you want the mind of Christ? Do you want eternal life in paradise? If your answer is no to the first question and yes to the last two; then read and learn from God’s Word. Let Him confirm what has been shown to you in this treatise on having the mind of Christ. 

Matthew 18:3— And [Jesus] said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children,  ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
