Tape Review: Alphabet Soup, by Page Prewitt
You’ve heard the truth of your union with Christ; you’ve believed it; you’ve taken it as your truth; you know you are not an independent person— just you. But you find yourself in a dilemma. What is the glitch that stops you from living the life of joy and freedom that the Bible promises? What is the problem? What is the mix up that keeps you floundering around?
Many of us have been in this same place with no apparent way out. Saying “that’s not who I am” doesn’t deal with the pile of trash hidden under the rug that quietly grows. I have said those very words, trying to get a quick fix. Did it help? Absolutely not. I was not dealing with the root cause of my sin and unbelief. It was a band-aid that only covered the problem but didn’t deal with the festering underneath.
I love the way Page Prewitt so aptly describes our problem as if we are looking inside and what do we have but a pot of mixed up alphabet soup. You know, the little ABC’s that children love to play with when they are supposed to be eating their soup.
To begin, Page methodically takes us through the basic make-up of a person. Until we understand this, we will continue to be tripped up by the misunderstanding of our soul and confuse it with spirit. We will continue to be tossed and turned by what Satan tells us about our soul. We are not just spirit and body, our “bugaboos” come from our soul—but not just the negatives, we are robbed of enjoying the positive capacities of our soul, as well.
Even though we know that our soul consists of thoughts and feelings, the missing link is how does it work out in our life? You have strong feelings of being confused and you say, “I am confused” and of course, Satan wants your attention to be on your confusion. When someone tells you that confusion is not the point, you then become frustrated and angry because to you, your problem is confusion.
To illustrate, Page writes an example on the board: “I am confused.” Your focus is on how you feel: confused. You say it repeatedly, you drum it in, you grind it in “I am confused.” All this does is reinforce your confusion. But, wait a minute, you can say, “I feel confused,” which is part of your soul and it’s ok to feel anything. That doesn’t touch the spirit part of you. Take the personal pronoun “I” and correct it to “Christ/I” and that then becomes the subject of your sentence. As long as you remain focused on the end of the sentence, you’ll never see it; you must refocus your attention to the truth of who you are: Christ/I.
This tape has many nuggets of wealth for us to discover. Some of the many things Page covers in this talk include: How did Lucifer fit into God’s universe?; How does a person make the switch from a hookup with Satan to one with Christ?; Why is it so important to see other people correctly?; What is the worst thing you will ever find out about yourself? And don’t miss Page’s funny example of illustrating our soul as an impulse receiver.
So, if this has whet your appetite to learn more or you have unanswered questions, please get this audio series and discover how you can get out of the mix-up of the ABC’s.
