AMNESIA

"......has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins" (2 Peter 1:9)

 

...and how easily we forget! For many the only begotten Son has become the only forgotten. The Amplified Bible uses the word "oblivious" instead of "forgotten". Some amnesia is willful; we simply choose to forget. What is the cause? It might be trauma. An electric shock to the brain or the concussion from a fall can instantly erase compressed data. It is not actually amnesia, I mean the spirit still knows that God is good and can be depended on, but the mind is so distracted by the trauma, whether the assault be physical, verbal or circumstantial, that the believer's memory lapses and the enemy gets the upper hand.

 

Amnesia is also caused by nerve deterioration, i.e., old age. The neuro-receptors that interlink short and long-term memory fray and disconnect. Call it spiritual senility if you wish. A Christian can be a Christian for so long that he forgets what being a Christian is all about. He lives in the good old days forgetting that God is God of all the days. In the natural, a person like that keeps repeating the same thing he just said. In the spiritual it is similar, the freshness is gone. Vibrant faith stales and channels into a predictable repeat routine. Another word for that is...religion.

 

Third, amnesia can be caused by lack of use or of concentration. To be remembered a thing has to be brought back to the mind from time to time. Ignorance shuts its eyes and becomes oblivious and unaware. By ignorant I don't mean stupid, the word has more to do with ignoring things that should be processed by the mind. I tend to forget what I do not familiarize myself with. Spiritual amnesia occurs when we simply don't pay attention to the word of the Lord.

 

And finally, amnesia is caused by hypnotism. Hupnos in Greek means "to put to sleep". The hypnotist says "when you wake up you will not remember a thing". There are drugs that can do that; erase memory. Cults also brainwash in such a way that a child's whole upbringing is deleted then reprogrammed with garbage. Don't be mesmerized by the world. Satan is the master hypnotist. If he can get you to focus on the spiraling colors he can get you separated from the Word. Then...presto-chango...you forget what manner of person you are. The safe zone is remaining in the Word. Stay awake. Be flexible. Stay young in God. And don't let any traumatic event knock you out. Guard your memory.
