“But as it is written: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither
have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.
V10 But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
V11 For what man knoweth the things of man, save the spirit
of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
That’s why, without the indwelling Holy spirit, the best you can hope for is a stimulated mind.
The stimulated mind without the Spirit of God, makes a good rebel.
Men and women of God aren’t made by IQ, they are made by “I AM.”
Verse 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Many people have mistaken something that resembles the truth for the truth itself. That’s why there are so many philosophies, so many religions, so much wrong thinking.
That’s why a lot of well-meaning people are all mixed up about who God is and how to live a life with value and integrity and excellence.
In a spiritually created world, created by a spiritual God, they are trying to respond to God with a carnal mind.
Most people sense a need for spiritual awareness, but they want to experience it in the flesh. It cannot be done.
The Pharisees tried it and it didn’t work for them. The spiritist tried it and it doesn’t work for them. The Buddhist tried it, but it doesn’t work for them. The cults try it but it doesn’t work for them. The Muslims try it, but it doesn’t work for them either, because there is no true spiritual life without the essence of the Spirit and the essence of the Spirit can only be found in Jesus Christ."
God will not change or condescend His essence to fulfill the desire of those who pretend to be spiritual, those who nurture wrong thinking. God got enough of that for the two-thousand years of Israelite rebellion.
The Holy Spirit transforms the way you use to think into the way you should think, more so as you yield to God."
