Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:5, KJV)
IMAGINATIONS. High things capable of exalting themselves against the knowledge of God. The authority to cast down thoughts produced in the mind (human or otherwise) that concoct a view of reality in which God is not the God.
THOUGHTS. So rapidly produced, one following the other in lightning procession, so able to slip past our notice; able to carry seeds of rebellion against Christ. So subtle. Thoughts—vehicles that carry; servants that serve. The authority to capture them and force them to carry and serve only that which aligns with the truth of God’s Divine Self-Revelation.
IMAGINATIONS—thoughts carrying seeds of rebellion that got lose and germinated producing a stronghold.
Cast down every imagine or high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God! Take captive every thought and force it to carry and serve only that which is true to God’s Divine Self-Revelation.
