Unpacking Soulbyte Language
THE FATHER'S VOICE & THE HUMAN SOUL
Every child of God is searching for The Father's voice to give life to his (or her) soul (Isaiah 55:3). The Father’s voice ignites one’s identity and gender (Mark 1:11), covering (Gen. 15:1), commissioning (Mark 9:7), sense of oneness with The Father (Jn. 10:30), and purpose with divine assignments (Gen. 12:1-2). His voice is His presence (Genesis 3:8). The human soul was created by The Father to be a riverbed for His voice/His presence to flow through (Genesis 2:7). Our soul is our mind (James 1:21, Matt. 11:29), emotions (Luke 1:46, Mark 14:34), and will (Psalm 103:1, 130:5). It is part of our triune divine-image architecture: body, soul, and spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Our soul incubates and administrates mindsets that give birth to feelings and actions. Jesus modeled, as a human (Phil. 2:7), what life could look like with a soul that is in tact/in harmony with The Father’s Voice (John 14:30). Without mindset transformation, the human soul, compromised by the fall (Gen. 3:10), is exploited by the demonic (Psalm 143:3). When our souls prosper, everything prospers (3 John 2).
DISSONANT MINDSETS & DEMONIC TECHNOLOGIES
At salvation/rebirth (John 3:7, Romans 10:9, 10, 13) we are given the mind of Christ via His Spirit deposited in us (1 Cor. 2:16, Gal. 4:6). Because He is the Spirit of truth (John 16:13), as we abide in His word His truth sets us free (John 8:31, 32). However, the flow of His Spirit, The River of Life (the truth that sets us free), is neutralized and short-circuited by Dissonant Mindsets (unbelief) that we choose to hold onto… willfully or tacitly (Jeremiah 4:14). These toxic ways of thinking are countermeasures that neutralize our ability to hear and resonate The Father's Voice. Since the human soul is the mind, emotions, and will, the battle is for mindsets (2 Cor. 10:3, 4, 5, Provers 23:7). Since the enemy's only weapon is deception (Gen. 3:1, John 8:44), Dissonant Mindsets act as “pairing points” (like a Bluetooth sensor) for demonic accusations (Revelation 12:10). Demon’s use dissonant words and thought-patterns to pair with Dissonant Mindsets (Psalm 64:1-3, Eph. 6:16, Isa. 54:17). A "pairing" is established in the human soul when an agreement is made with a demonic accusation (a lie). Demon’s go up and down the timeline seeking to legally engage and exploit Dissonant Mindsets in a human soul (Job 1:7, 1 Pet. 5:8, Lk. 22:31). Dissonant Mindsets originate from one of three places (revealed in The Parable of The Sower, see Lk. 8:11-15):
1. Omission (Luke 8:12, Hos. 4:6, James 4:17)
2. Learned Error/Tradition (Luke 8: 13, Mark 7:13, Acts 18:26)
3. Natural Five-sense Testimony: (Luke 8:14, Matt. 17:19, 20, 21, Rom. 4:19, 20)
Biblical Mindset Conditioning is the discipline of using Bible verses and stories to “condition” one’s soul (mind, emotions, and will) to agree with The Father’s voice. The Bible refers to this discipline as, “meditation” (Joshua 1:8, Psalm 19:14, Psalm 1:2, 3). The Hebrew word in the Bible translated “meditation” is, hagah [haw-gaw]. It means: “to growl, mutter, muse, speak, ponder, consider, imagine.” Because each and every person’s soul was created by The Father’s voice/His breath-of-life (Genesis 2:7), meditating on His voice makes it come alive (Isaiah 55:3). The same voice that caused each person to become a living soul is the same voice found in the words and stories in the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17). This is why "man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God" (Lk. 4:4). Bible verses and stories carry God-breathed blueprints that illuminate Jesus' life, death, burial, and resurrection (John 5:39, Luke 24:27). They are divine seeds-of-life that contain the Father’s supernatural DNA/frequency (Luke 8:11). Once planted and cultivated in a heart that has been cleared of "weeds" (Dissonant Mindsets, see: Luke 8:12, 13, 14), these divine seeds manifest a harvest of life (Luke 8:15). Biblical Mindset Conditioning is practically engaged via The Soulbyte Protocol.
THREE DOMINANT SOUNDS
The Father’s voice “resonates” Three Dominant Sounds that any promise in the Bible can be wrapped around (Eccl. 4:12). The Three Dominant Sounds of The Father's Voice, are: 1. His Goodness (The Father), 2. His Redemption (The Son), and, 3. His Resurrection-Life (The Holy Spirit). We need to be fully convinced that He is a good Father, and He is faithful to His promises. Next, we need a deep revelation of The Son's Redemption (that He paid it all). And, finally, our hearts need a deep revelation of The Holy Spirit's Resurrection-Life living in and thorough us.
1. His Goodness (James 1:17, Exod. 33:18, 19, John 3:16, Rom. 8:31-32, Jer. 29:11)
2. His Redemption (John 19:30, 2 Cor. 5:21, Rom. 8:2-3, 1 Pet. 1:18-19)
3. His Resurrection-Life (1 Peter 1:3, Gal. 4:6-7, Romans 8:11, John 7:38-39)
Soul Reconnaissance is the process of observing regions of the heart to identify the "giants in the land,” and ascertain strategic features (Numbers 13:1-2, 18, 19, 20). New Testament "giants" are Dissonant Mindsets/mental strongholds (Eph. 6:12, 2 Corinthians 10:3, 4, 5, 6). Remember, from teaching one, "Our soul incubates and administrates mindsets that give birth to feelings and actions" (Gen. 3:10). This is why we need to gather specific intel about specific dissonant mindsets. Like the Old Testament giants that occupied The Promised Land and consumed Israel's inheritance, New Testament giants function the same way (Numbers 13:32, 33, John 10:10). If we've accepted Jesus’ finished work on the cross, and have called out to Him as Lord (believing in His resurrection), we need not fear the giants because The Holy Spirit lives in us (1 Jn. 4:4, Gal. 4:6)! The reality is, the enemy is terrified of us (Josh. 2:11, Matt. 8:29). What we need is "divine objectivity," along with His replacement strategy (2 Kings 6:16, 17, Josh. 1:8). We need to see these squatters as He sees them- as "bread" for us (Numb. 14:9). These Dissonant Mindsets, these "giants in the land," short-circuit The River of Life (the flow of The Holy Spirit). We, therefore, must learn how to take away the enemy’s legal right to steal, kill, and destroy. Dissonant Mindsets manifest as offenses (Gen. 3:11, 12, 13, Matt. 24:10). The first step, therefore, is to identify “who” we need to forgive/who we are holding an offense toward (John 20:23, Matt. 18:34, 35, Matt. 6:14). We can then renounce/disempowered the lie, apply the blood of Jesus, forgive the offense (send it away), condemn the demonic, and replace the lies with the truth of The Father's Voice/The River of Life (we will cover this dynamic in the next teaching: Thrones of Authority). This identification and displacement strategy will ultimately yield good fruit (Luke 8:15).**
THRONES OF AUTHORITY
Thrones of Authority are legal “seats” of authority that Christians possess (Eph. 2:6, Luke 10:19). They serve as functional platforms to execute God's written decrees- to eradicate and replace Dissonant Mindsets (Psalm 149:9, 2 Cor. 10:3, 4, 5, 6). We do this by applying the blood of Jesus (forgiving offenses), condemning the demonic, and releasing The River of Life. The word “authority” in the Bible comes from the Greek word exousia. It means: “To rule, govern, possess; to have jurisdictional ascendancy and dominion.” Synonyms include: ascendancy, authorization, command, influence, jurisdiction, license, permission, and supremacy. God commissioned mankind to have authority to rule and reign over everything He created (Gen. 1:26-28, Psalm 8:3-6, Ps. 115:16). Mankind relinquished his authority through the fall (Luke 4:6). The enemy seeks to malignantly taste of human authority (Genesis 3:1, 1 Peter 5:8, John 10:10). Jesus demonstrated, on earth, how to exercise authority… from heaven (Note: He was on earth and in heaven at the same time, see John 3:13 NKJV). From these functional “Thrones of Authority”/legal seats of jurisdiction, He cast out demons, healed the sick, raised the dead, administered supernatural increase, etc. In other words, Jesus released heaven on earth via His human authority (Matthew 9:8, Mark 11:27-33, Luke 10:19). Through His resurrection, He won back our authority and seated us with Him on “Thrones of Authority” (Col. 2:15, Luke 10:19, Ephesians 2:6). We are now in a divine dispensation of learning how to exercise our authority over every area of life and every promise of God (Matthew 16:19, Dan. 7:22, Dan. 7:26, 1 Cor. 6:3). We have come to “Mount Zion” (Isaiah 2:3, Heb. 12:22, 23, 24) to issue the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus and to set captives free, judge demons, and decree The River of Life (2 Corinthians 10:5-6, Lk. 10:19, 1 Cor. 6:3). Our words administrate our acquittal (Proverbs 18:21, Matt. 12:37). And we can now access elevated Thrones of Authority to disempower and dismantle the enemies accusations (Isaiah 54:17, Revelation 12:11).
Divine Resonance is the byproduct of sustained meditation (what Soulbyte calls “Biblical Mindset Conditioning”). When a Christian engages The Father’s voice via Biblical Mindset Conditioning (Joshua 1:8, Psalm 19:14), in a sustained fashion, it produces organic overflow. Jesus likened this to “rivers of living water” flowing through our hearts (John 7:38). Another way to put this, is: "Divine Resonance is when the Holy Spirit flows freely through our hearts, via our words and actions" (John 12:49, John 5:19). This sustained agreement-dynamic with The Father’s voice not only displaces the lies of the enemy but it also brings life to everyone and everything around us (Ezekiel 47:9, Rom. 8:11). All creation is longing for God’s sons and daughters to manifest this dynamic (Rom. 8:19). Divine Resonance is engaged via three primary catalysts: 1) Thanksgiving, 2) Focus, and 3) Generosity.
THE SOULBYTE PROTOCOL
The Soulbyte Protocol is a practical process to engage any promise from The Father. It is framed up by three words: HEAR/SEE/RESONATE. When we “hear” about one of His promises in the Bible (Rom. 10:14, 17, 2 Corinthians 1:20), and "see" (capture the revelation) that Jesus paid the full price for it (Eph. 1:18, Job 42:5), in concert with resonating it (Romans 10:10, Matthew 6:10)... the activated truth of that promise is guaranteed (1 John 5:14-15, Mark 11:24). Each Soulbyte album/topic, representing The Father’s Voice about a specific promise, is brought to life using The Soulbyte Protocol.
Ways of thinking/perceiving, in the heart/soul, that determine one's alignment and engagement with either life or death (Prov. 23:7, Matt. 15:19, Rom. 8:5-6, ).
THE MIND OF CHRIST
Jesus' way of thinking/perceiving. It is characterized by the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). The mind of Christ is a gift to all of God's children, but it must be cultivated and established through intentionality and intimacy (1 Cor. 2:16, John 15:15, Col. 3:2-3, Rom. 12:2, Phil. 2:5, James 1:21).
OMISSION OF EARTHLY FATHER'S VOICE
The omission of a healthy earthly father’s voice conceives the highest-ranking Offended Mindset known as an orphan-spirit. Fathers were given a special mandate to prime-the-pump of every child’s heart to come into cadence/agreement with their heavenly Father’s voice (Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Prov. 22:6). A healthy Dad’s voice frames the child’s gender, identity, covering, commissioning, and sense of purpose (Mark 1:11, Mark 9:7). A healthy Dad's voice helps one overcome enemy assaults (Luke 4:4). A healthy Dad’s voice transfer’s a mantel of strength and courage, centered in a "my God is your God" mindset (1 Chron. 28:20). An orphan-spirit (again, the Offended Mindset with the highest ranking authority) manifests as anger, hatred, a sense-of-betrayal, and irrational offenses toward God and others (Matt. 24:10). A person hosting this Offended Mindset is usually completely unaware that they are holding a deep offense toward their earthly father, regarding what they DID NOT receive from him (Prov. 22:6, Deut. 6:7, Eph. 6:4, Prov. 13:24). Because God is transcendent as "Father," and thus all human father's fall short of His glory, every human is hosting (in varying degrees and areas of the soul) an orphan-spirit. An orphan-spirit can be replaced with the Father's voice (Isaiah 55:3).
Jesus paid for all sins, including mindsets coming from Generational Dissonance. These unhealthy mindsets are passed down through one's ancestry. The enemy is eager to exploit toxic mental agreements rooted in bloodline anomalies. Although they are already paid for, by Jesus' blood, the enemy has legal right to engage Generational Dissonance IF we believe these generational mindsets still have power over us (if we are living in agreement with them). Generational dissonance is based on what the Bible calls “iniquities” (Exodus 20:5, Deut. 5:9, Ps. 51:5). The word "iniquity," in the Bible, comes from the Hebrew word awon. It means: "guilt/perversion legally mandating generational-punishment." Jesus paid for all iniquities (Isa. 53:6). However, to disempower generational dissonance (iniquities), we must apply the blood of Jesus and agree/testify that He paid for this source of toxicity also (Nehemiah 9:2, Ps. 32:5, Acts 3:26).
From the Greek word "metanoeo," meaning "to change the way one thinks." The Soulbyte definition is "to create a new constellation of neural pathways (in the heart) that are in sustained agreement/symphonic harmony with the Mind of Christ." (Matt. 4:17, Rom. 12:2, Acts 2:38).
ENCOUNTERING THE FATHER'S VOICE
Encountering the Father's voice is the result of a person, by faith, opening the door of his heart to Jesus- allowing Him, and thus the Father (John 10:30, John 14:9), to come in for divine communion (Rev. 3:20, John 14:6). The Father is longing for intimacy with His children (John 4:23). It all starts with the first encounter (Rom. 10:9-10). Once a person invites Jesus into his heart as Lord (and thus becomes "saved" Rom. 10:9-10), he (or she) can encounter the Father by faith at any time and in any situation (Heb. 11:6, Matt. 28:20, John 16:26-27). Characteristics (or manifestations) of encountering the Father's voice (Jesus Himself) are unique to each son's or daughter's spiritual DNA. A person whose life is characterized by ongoing encounters with God releases a river of life to everyone and everything around him/her (John 7:38-39, Ezek. 47:9).
A Father-Promise is a promise from God that one is invited to agree with, in his soul, to encounter and experience an aspect of His nature. Because God cannot lie, and He authored the Bible, the scriptures provide divine truth that frames up Father-Promises (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:21, Numb.23:19, 2 Cor. 1:20). Praying, audible meditation, inner-man meditation, visualizing, decreeing, giving thanks, singing, praising, and writing are all examples of various ways of agreeing with the Father's promises (Psalm 19:14, Josh. 1:8, Rom. 10:8, 9-10, 2 Cor. 1:20, Psalm 1:2-3, Amos 3:3).
From the Greek word "elpis," meaning "an eager expectation of a guaranteed outcome based on a promise from God." (Heb. 10:23, Rom. 5:5, 1 Pet. 1:3).
The word "faith" in the Bible comes from the Greek word: pistis. It is described as the "substance" (or, unseen internal framework) of things hoped for (Heb. 11:1). Put differently, faith is the internal picture and thus mindset that one hosts in his heart (based on a hope or expectation). Biblical faith comes by continuously hearing the message of Jesus' finished work on the cross and resurrection-life (Romans 10:17, John 19:30, Rom. 8:11). Without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). This Biblical faith... overcomes the world (1 John 5:4). "Supercharged Faith," as Soulbyte uses it, is: Faith that is intentionally infused with abiding doses of Biblical revelation of Jesus (John 8:31-32). Supercharged faith produces a mindset like Abraham's. Abraham focused on the Father's promise to the point of becoming "fully convinced" that He (God) could do what He had promised... in spite of the circumstances (Rom. 4:20-21).
THE SODE (SECRET PLACE)
The Hebrew term "sode" means secret place, realm of God's presence, counsel, assembly, company, group, mystic council, congregation, friendship, familiar converse, divine circle, or foundation (Matt. 6:6, Ps. 91:1, Jer. 23:18). The sode (secret place) is the spiritual place (or mystic realm) where the Father, Jesus, and those around the Godhead are encountered (Heb. 12:22-24). Giving thanks, worship, and focused prayer are three primary doors to accessing the Sode (Ps. 100:4, John 4:23, 2 Kings 3:15, Matt. 14:23, Matt. 6:6). Engaging the Sode manifests in various ways/forms and sounds (based on individual and/or corporate DNA). In the movie Chariots of Fire, Eric Lidell illuminated how he engaged the Sode when he said, "... when I run I feel His pleasure."
