Commentary: God is Thought. All thoughts were/are originated by/from God. God’s good thoughts are His good angels (words, spirits) that are not seen nor heard by unsaved people because Satan “hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart” (John 12:40) and “the carnal mind is enmity against God” (Rom 8:7). God’s perverted thoughts are His originally good thoughts that have now become changed (altered, distorted) by Lucifer/Satan’s self-centered pride into evil angels (words, spirits), bad angels, fallen angels (shudder), devils, demons, unclean spirits, that continuously dwell in our minds, influencing, controlling, and ultimately seeking to utterly destroy and kill all people, saved and unsaved alike.
GOD’S THOUGHTS (WORDS) ARE IN HIS ANGELS (THE LOGOS SEED) WHO SERVE HIM
(Gen 28:12-15) And he [Jacob] dreamed, and behold [Heb: see] a ladder [Heb: a stair case] set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven [step by step, i.e., the pathway to God]: and behold [Heb: see] the angels [Heb: messengers] [i.e., words, containers of God’s thoughts] of God ascending and descending on it [John 1:51]. And, behold [Heb: see], the LORD stood above it, and said,  [THE PROMISE (LOGOS SEED) THAT GOD SPOKE IN THE FORM OF DESCENDING ANGELS:] I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee [Heb: to hedge about, guard, protect] in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
1. Commentary: “the LORD… said” = sent the message in a series of angels (words, sentences, containers of Gods thoughts) descending from God to Jacob and a series of angels (words, sentences, prayers, containers of Godly thoughts) ascending to God from Jacob (Gen 8:20-22).
GOD’S SERVANTS AND HIS SOLDIERS ARE ANGELS
BE A GOOD SOLDIER FOR THE LORD IN THE TRAINING CAMP OF THIS WORLD
(2 Tim 2:3,4) Thou [you] therefore endure hardness [Gk: undergo hardship: endure afflictions, suffer trouble], as a good soldier [Gk: warrior] of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth [Gk: entwines] himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
1. good = Gk: good (literally or morally), valuable, virtuous: fair, honest, worthy.
2. warreth = Gk: serves in a military campaign, to contend with carnal inclinations: goes to war.
SERVANTS AND SOLDIERS:
A TYPE AND SHADOW OF HEAVEN
And when Jesus was entered into
Capernaum [Heb: a village (as
protected by walls) /// comfortable], there came unto him a
centurion [Gk: a Roman captain of one hundred
men], beseeching [pleading with] him, And saying, Lord
[Gk: kurios; supreme in authority], my servant [Gk: pais; boy]
lieth at home sick of the
palsy [Gk: paralytic], grievously tormented
[Gk: tortured: in pain, tossed,
vexed]. And Jesus saith unto him, I
will come and heal him. The
centurion answered and said, [THE CENTURION
DISPLAYS HIS UNDERSTANDING:] Lord, I am
not worthy [the lowest degree of
self-respect, i.e., showing great humility] that thou shouldest come under my
roof [and hence under my hospitality and
authority]: but speak the word [send your soldiers (angels)] only, and my servant shall be
healed [Gk: made whole]. For I am a
man under authority  [as are you], having soldiers under me
[which are a type and shadow of
your angels (words) under you, and your
words (angels) are “quick (Gk: alive), and powerful” Heb 4:12]: and I say [words (power)] to this man
[to my soldier as you do to
your angel], Go, and he goeth; and to another,
Come, and he cometh; and to my
servant , Do this, and he doeth it.
When Jesus heard it, he
marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily
[Gk: truth] I say unto you, I have not
found so great [Gk: large, much] faith [Gk: belief] [UNDERSTANDING], no, not in
1. authority = Dict: 1. a) the power or right to give commands, enforce obedience, take action, or make final decisions; jurisdiction b) the position of one having such power (a person in authority). 2. such power as delegated to another; authorization; warrant (he has my authority to do it).
2. servant = 1401 doulos; a slave (lit. or fig., involuntarily or voluntarily; frequently therefore in a qualified sense of subjection or subserviency): bond (- man), servant.
OUR AUTHORITY AND SUPERNATURAL POWER IN HEAVEN AND THE UNIVERSE
AS A SERVANT OR AS A GOOD SOLDIER (A FRIEND) OF JESUS CHRIST
(John 15:15) Henceforth I call you [His disciples] not servants [Gk: 1401 doulos; a slaves]; for the servant knoweth [Gk: understands] not what his lord doeth [i.e., the Bible: John 1:14]: but I have called you friends ; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known [Gk: declared, given to understand) unto you. 
1. friends = Gk: dear, a friend; actively fond, friendly (an associate, neighbor, etc.).
2. Commentary: we who are saved are all first “servants” (soldiers, “among thorns” (a) of Jesus Christ, and then some of us also become “friends” (centurions, “good ground” (b) of Jesus Christ.
a. (Luke 8:14) And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection [Gk: maturity].
b. (Luke 8:15) But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word [“and understandeth it” Mat 13:23], keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT (A PROGRESSING COMPILATION)
God is Love. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks. God is Thought. We who are saved, redeemed, imputed for righteousness, born-again, are spiritually ascending and descending Jacob’s ladder (Gen 28:12; John 1:51) in meditation (inner thoughts) and prayer (manifested thoughts). Thoughts are Life (they move). Words are a product of thought. God’s angels are His manifested Thoughts (His Words). God is Spirit. The Holy Spirit of God is the conglomerate of all His Angels (all His Holy Thoughts) who are created as Spirits (Psa 104:4; Heb 1:7). Angels are His manifested Spirit. God is the eternal Spirit from which all things that are the entire manifested universe was/is being created. All S(s)pirits originate as God’s Thoughts. You are a transitional part of God’s Spirit (Eccl 12:7); you will become either an eternal Heavenly Spirit, or an eternal fallen spirit. The Garden of Eden is a type and shadow of Heaven. All the trees in the Garden of Eden are fruit trees (Gen 1:11,12,29; 2:9,16,17) symbolizing Angels (Heb: messengers) whose fruit is God’s message (Gal 5:22,23; Eph 5:9 & Rev 22:2). Men are fruit trees (Mat 7:15-20; 12:33; Luke 3:9). The S(s)pirits of men are A(a)ngels (Rev 19:9,10; 22:8,9).
