RECAP: “Do you have the mind of God or of your father the Devil?”
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson had the people turn to John 8:31-58, where he discovered the week prior that the things he has been saying are written in the Bible the same way that he says them. Jesse often says that people who are angry are easily convinced of lies. When interviewing people who disagree with him, Jesse may ask, “Are you a Christian?” If they answer, “No,” he will say, “Well, no wonder!” People who are not children of God cannot know or recognize the truth. They accept lies as truth and reject God.
Many people who want to know the truth, who are seeking God but do not know God, many who consider themselves Christians do not have the mind of God, but the mind of their father Satan. Some believe they have both minds, sometimes of God, and sometimes of the Devil. Jesse insisted that you cannot have two minds — you are either of your father God or of your father the Devil. You cannot serve two masters or ride two horses.
One woman said she catches herself thinking ill of others, and asks God for forgiveness for judging her fellowman, recognizing that she hated them for wronging her. Jesse urged the woman not to engage in the dialogue with Satan in her mind — but just to recognize that all such thoughts are neither from her nor of God, but of Satan — and not to think any further on it.
Jesse gave the assignment for this week: “Doubt every thought you that comes into your mind.”

Read John 8:31-59 (the following is from NASB)
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed in Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine;
and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.
The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever.
So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
I know that you are Abraham’s descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.
I speak the things which I have seen with My Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from your father.”
They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus *said to them, “If you are Abraham’s children, do the deeds of Abraham.
But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do.
You are doing the deeds of your father.” They said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father: God.”
Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.
Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word.
You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.
Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me?
He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”
The Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.
But I do not seek My glory; there is One who seeks and judges.
Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he will never see death.”
The Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets also; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste of death.’
Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom do You make Yourself out to be?”
Jesus answered, “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God’;
and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be a liar like you, but I do know Him and keep His word.
Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
So the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.”
Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple.
