God Thinking VIII - Ministering In The Spirit 3

"Go with me to 1 Corinthians 2:9-14 Let’s take a look at the deep truths that can change us. Human wisdom cannot understand the things of God.  I wonder if we truly are thankful to God for allowing us to receive His Spirit.  Knowing the Father in itself is more than we could ever expect.  Have you ever felt that?  Just knowing God is such a blessing in itself.

1 Corinthians 2:9-14
“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.”

Before you came to Christ, it made no difference how much  God revealed of Himself, you could not receive it.  This is the condition of the unsaved man or woman. Before Christ, you could not see nor could you hear, nor could you understand what God had prepared for you.  God was at work preparing a path for you, but you could not see it. Are you in agreement with this?

V10 “But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
The “us”, is the believer.  How does God reveal what eye hath not seen and ear hath not heard and what hath not entered into the heart of man?  By His Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:11 “For what man knoweth the things of man, save (except) the spirit of man which is in Him?  Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”

Apart from the indwelling Holy Spirit, your spirit only recognizes the things of man.  Mankind does not know the things of God, but the Spirit of God does know, therefore without the Spirit of God indwelling you, you cannot please God or operate in the power of God."
