Have you been enslaved by old ways of thinking? God wants to do something new in you. He wants you to trade the mixed messages of this world for the mind of Christ. It’s time to come out of Egyptian mindsets and walk in Kingdom authority.
When you were born again, you understood that Jesus paid the price for you to exercise and use His authority. You can decree to your Egyptian mindset, “Let me go so that I may go and worship the One True God!”
You don't have to stay a slave in Egypt after the Lamb saved you. Leave Egypt, head out across your Red Sea, across your wilderness, and embrace your Promised Land.
Join Rabbi Curt Landry in this podcast for an inspiring message about how to live in this world but not be of this world, taking authority over your situations by putting on the mind of Christ.

Shalom, Rabbi Curt Landry here with Ancient Principles, Kingdom Authority. Why would you be interested in something that's so old (ancient principles)? And why would you need Kingdom authority?
When you read the Bible, there is so much about…
And they are all yours in Jesus Christ. When He died on the cross, at Passover, He said, “It is finished.” He paid for these ancient principles and Kingdom authority to be in you. So all those who call upon His name will be saved. He is the Passover Lamb. He paid the price and wants you to be able to exercise and learn to use your Kingdom Authority from the ancient principles of…
… That He paid for on the cross at Calvary.
The Prophetic Message of 3—Wholeness
This is post-Passover and Resurrection Sunday, when we brought a prophetic message of 5783/2023. This Passover was a focus on…
- The number 3
- Body, soul, and spirit walking whole
- Walking in the covenants of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
- Walking in relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
- We talked about divine alignment and covenant protection. We talked about the nine blessings of Passover, which provide provision and protection, and empowerment.
- We talked about sowing your Passover seed and being able to put a demand on that to bring prosperity and peace into your life and protection.
If you missed these messages, you could go through those podcasts here.
But today, we are going to talk about the significance of leaving an Egyptian mindset.
Get Rid of Your Egypt Mindset | Be in the World But Not of the World
I wrote a book on this, Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage. You can get it here. But listen, this is the message of my life.
The Problem Mindsets
If you take humanistic, Greek, or Hellenized thoughts, like Egyptian mindsets, it is the world’s way of thinking and doing things. Romans 12:2 says that we must be in the world but not of the world.
So how do we do that as Believers?
I work with both Believers and nonbelievers. I work on both sides of the fence, I work with governmental people, and I work with leaders all over the world. And in fact, I do a lot of the work with unsaved people. So I have to understand the way of the world but understand that I am not of the world.
But my understanding of God's Kingdom and my understanding of the world must be bridged, not mixed. Knowing how this is done brings success…
In other words, I have to understand…
- Who I'm speaking to
- Who is functioning mentally and making decisions out of humanistic (Egyptian mindset)
- Who I am. I am a King's kid, born-again, a king and priest according to the order of Melchizedek, walking in the spirit, making choices based on the Bible and the Holy Spirit.
So, how do you make that bridge?
And the first thing you have to do is make a decision that you're going to exchange your Greek Hellenized thinking (Egyptian mindset) for biblical Hebraic thought.
This gives you an advantage!
And that's where people struggle. But I’ve been a student of it for 33 years in my life, and I feel like I have an advantage. Because when I sit down with people who understand all the ways of the world, I understand how they are processing.
The Advantage of Being in the World but Not of the World
I understand what worldly people bring to the table in conversations. I see how they try to control the situation and get their desired outcome. So when I'm in a business or negotiation deal, I know what they are doing.
Your Advantage in This World
I'm coming from a biblical place, but I'm also communicating what I want to happen. The advantage that I have, and the advantage you can have, is if your mind doesn’t have to run the show. You have the mind of Christ. You have another set of thoughts that are biblical. You can operate out of God's covenant.
Before you go into a situation…
- Do spiritual warfare
- Silence the enemy
This gives you a huge advantage.
Worldly people don't understand the power of that. You do. You've arrested all those spirits, and now you're at a place where you're doing a business negotiation, and you're getting ready to close the deal. It’s like you have an earbud in, and the Holy Spirit is communicating to you through it.
He’s saying, “You know what? Just sit there and look him in the eye and don't say a word. I've already closed this.”
So if you put out the request and it gets silenced, which is uncomfortable, sit there with a smile, look at them in the eye, and listen to the Holy Spirit. He might say, “Just be still.” He is working. The angels are working in that situation.
You have an advantage of God's blessing, favor, ways, and trust. The Lord has given you the key of David. So He opens doors no man can shut.
Start retraining your mind to be more spiritual, biblical, and aligned with God. Here’s an example…
- When I go into a business deal, I want to ensure it is balanced. I want to ensure I can deliver what I'm saying so that I'm not a liar.
- I want to ensure I've done my homework on the person and the group I'm talking with so that I've already answered all their objections before I sit down at that table.
- If I’ve done my homework, vetted the situation, and understood who they are, I will understand what they want.
I don’t want to spend time with them unless I feel like this is a win-win situation for the Kingdom of God. So I've done the due diligence, but I don't need to go into their manipulative world of how they do stuff. I can just come in as a King's kid and say…
- “This is what we're offering you. I know we can deliver this, and we'll do an excellent job. I know we're good at this. I feel comfortable with that. So I humbly submit to you that if you really would like to do this project with us, we're excited to partner with you, and we promise you with great passion we will do everything we can. We know we're not perfect, but we'll do everything we can to hold up our end and do even more because that's how we're raised. We're raised to give over an abundant. We want this to be better for you than it is for us. That's our heart.”
Now, I don't have to tell them that’s Jesus, but what I just said is Jesus’ business. So that's having that Jesus mindset. That’s having Kingdom authority. That’s getting rid of Egyptian mindsets.
And I can tell you, they don't say no. If by the time we vetted them, by the time we've prayed, we fasted, we've done the spiritual warfare, the deal is already closed before we sit down at the table. But we have to stay within that realm. Otherwise, we become a slave to money.
If there is any deal I can't get up and walk away from because of the money, I don't need to be in the deal. If the money's got me hooked, then I'm not in any spiritual condition to negotiate that deal. It can't be about the money. It can't be about prosperity. It has to be about this, “Lord, are you asking me to partner with this project for your kingdom? Yes or no?”
If it is yes, then the Lord is taking care of me financially, I don't have to worry or do it for the money. If you're doing it for the money, that's Greek thinking. That's Hellenized Egyptian thought. And yes, you can prosper with that, but not nearly as much as if you'll invest and transform your mind into Christ in you, Spirit-led principles and understanding, and watching podcasts like this, Ancient Principles, Kingdom Authority.
Leaving Egypt: Comparing the Passover of Moses and the Passover of Jesus
When Jesus was at the Last Supper, He was celebrating Passover. He was celebrating what happened to Moses—the leaving of Egypt.
So let's look at Moses, and let's look at Jesus.
Moses was raised in Egypt. He goes out to the wilderness and is transformed. He has an encounter with God at the burning bush, and He says, “Go and tell Pharaoh, ‘let My people go that they might worship Me.’”
So, he goes into Egypt and releases the plagues. There are 10 plagues. He faces them. He has to face the plagues because each one is an Egyptian god. Each one must be overthrown.
Moses gives the children of Israel a demonstration.
- “Hey, you've guys been slaves long enough. You forgot the ways of Joseph from 400 years ago. So you need to know this: all these gods, the sun god, the water gods, all these gods are nothing compared to what's in my staff.” (The authority given to Moses through his staff). “What I'm bringing from the mountain of God, He overcomes them all.”
And so he made a demonstration of God’s power to overthrow false gods, not just for the Jewish people but for Egypt as well. Egypt needed to know that the God of Moses: the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, was more powerful than all their river gods, the sun god, and all the different ones.
In the end, Pharaoh curses Moses with the death of the firstborn. His name, “Moses,” or “Moshe” in Hebrew, means drawn out. He was drawn out of the water. So now here it is, full cycle again. He's delivering the children of Israel, drawing them out.
The Pattern God Leaves
So basically, God says, “Okay, I am going to leave a pattern, an ancient principle of Kingdom authority, behind, and I want you to follow it. Here it is: The death angel's coming. And if you're going to be safe from the death angel that is coming in to kill the firstborn…
- You must obey My Word
- Go into your house
- Take a lamb without spot or blemish
- Take the blood of that lamb and put it on the doorpost in the lentils
- Go into the house and consume all the lamb with fire
- Don't fix leavened bread, but unleavened bread
- Eat it in haste, as quick as you can
…because in the morning, once this death angel is out of here, you guys are heading out of Goshen, out of Egypt, and across the wilderness. You're going to part the Red Sea and come into your Promised Land. You're leaving. It's over.”
So, where were they redeemed? In the house with the lamb’s blood on the door.
So what happens to Jesus? Jesus is born in Bethlehem. Herod hears about it and says, “Death of all the firstborn. All the male children that are alive kill them.” So where does Jesus go? Jesus’ family flees to Egypt to get away. It's the same pattern as Moses.
But now, when He comes back into the Promised Land, it's time to redeem the Jewish people and all the people who call on Him. With what? The blood of the Lamb.
The difference with Jesus’ story is He is the Lamb, and it's His blood that's going to redeem them. But it's the same story. It's not putting blood on the house but rather putting blood on a cross. This is a covenant act. He’s saying, “Vertically, I am reconciling Heaven to earth. Horizontally, reconciling humanity on earth by the blood of the Lamb.”
It was Passover when He celebrated the Last Supper. He was celebrating the redemption of what Moses did for his people, knowing that He was going to become, in the same pattern, the Lamb of God. He was going to deliver. It's the same story.
Passover and the Born-Again Believer
When you're born again…
- You must get all the way into the house.
- You must receive the Lamb.
- You must consume all of the Lamb.
- You must take the blood of Jesus in this house (your physical body).
- You must plead the blood over the lentil on the doorpost of your heart.
Here’s the key takeaway: You don't stay a slave in Egypt after the Lamb saved you from slavery. You leave Egypt, you head out across your Red Sea, across your wilderness, and you embrace your Promised Land.
Perhaps you’ve been a slave to Egyptian mindsets for many years. Listen to God’s Word through Moses, “Let My people go, that they might worship the true God. They're going to need to learn this.”
And so the wandering in the wilderness was learning how to trust, obey, and do life God's way.
