People Function On “The Subconscious Auto Pilot Mode.”


2Co 3:14  But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains uplifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is removed in Christ.

2Co 4:4  among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine on them.

Romans 7:24  O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death?

Romans 8:10   But if Christ is in you, the body indeed is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is alive because of righteousness.

11  But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit indwelling in you.

23  And not only that, but also we ourselves having the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting adoption, the redemption of our body.

I am indebted to neuroscientist, Dr. Joe Dizpensa, and his books, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” and “Evolving Your Brain.”

Though we differ in religious beliefs, his work on the study of the human brain has helped me to understand how the brain works in light of the Biblical model of the renewing of the mind.

The body is supposed to be the servant of the mind, who is a servant to the Holy Spirit.

When our body however becomes the subconscious mind, functioning on memorized auto pilot programs which it shoots to the mind, it runs the show. This is called a habit.

Thus is Paul’s argument in Romans seven and eight.

Five percent of the mind is conscious while the other ninety five percent of it is subconscious and runs the individual on hidden auto pilot programs.

The body becomes the mind.

Ninety five percent of who we are by the age of thirty five sits in the subconscious memory.

2Co 3:14  But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains uplifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is removed in Christ.

The Spirit of God wants our body so awakened and lined up with the Holy Spirit’s wishes that we no longer function on subconscious auto pilot programs.

As a matter of fact, they have been unveiled by the light of Christ.

The spiritual person no longer functions from the subconscious, but from the Person of Christ Jesus in them who is both greater than our subconscious and conscious minds, and our body.

 Romans 8:23  And not only that, but also we ourselves having the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting adoption, the redemption of our body.

The spiritual man or woman of God in Christ has the mind, conscious and subconscious, and the body, in harmony and subjection to the Holy Spirit within them.  This is the redemption of the body.

The redemption of the body as Paul sees it is our awakening from this deception and making the Person of Christ Jesus in us greater than both our mind and body. The person is no longer the servant of subconscious auto pilot programs.

Romans seven is the study of the person on subconscious auto pilot programs or habits.

Romans 7:24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

The “body of this death” is the body, which has become the mind, running things on subconscious auto pilot programs

The spiritual man or woman of God in Christ has the mind, conscious and subconscious,  and body, in the full light of the glory of God.

Nothing is on auto pilot.  Everything responds to the Spirit’s wishes.

Dr. Joe says that the body creates the feelings, and the mind, the thoughts.

Any time that a thought and feeling coincide, a state of being is created.

Only when the mind and the body are submitted in integral wholeness to the Spirit of God can true healing be realized, since state of being is the coinciding of thoughts and feelings.
