SPIRITUAL MATURITY – PART EIGHT

2017 – WEDNESDAY 8 FEBRUARY

SPIRITUAL MATURITY
PART EIGHT

1 Corinthians 2:6-16

WE UNDERSTAND OUR SPIRITUAL WORLD BY GOD’S SPIRIT.
“Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. ”

We are created as a three part being.
Our human spirit links us to God and His  spiritual realm.
Our body links us to dust and God’s created realm.
Our soul links both realms together, and creates our self realm.
Our self realm is where we learn how to rule and reign in life.

However because we are dead in sin, our soul cannot comprehend, nor understand the spiritual realm of God.
We must be born again and made alive to God.

We then need the “spiritual importer” from heaven, to reveal the hidden things of God to us.

1. A DEAD SPIRIT PRODUCES A DULL SOUL.
When a person is dead in sin – there is no awareness or comprehension of – the things God has prepared for them.

2. A FEARFUL SPIRIT PRODUCES A TIMID SOUL.
There is no willingness or capacity – to explore the things God has prepared for them.

3. A WORLDLY SPIRIT PRODUCES  A SELFISH SOUL
There is no longing or passion – to search for the spiritual things of God.

4. A GODLY SPIRIT PRODUCES A GODLY SOUL
When the Spirit of God flows into and through the human soul, He “quickens” – and makes alive –  your whole being to God’s realm.
Your human soul or mind – consists of four things.
1. Intellect
2. Reason
3. Imagination
4. Emotions
The only way to live the ” overcoming life” – is to allow the Holy Spirit to flow through – and impregnate – every part of your soul – with the promises of God
When you allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to “FLOW” from your spirit – into and through your soul – you are constantly being changed and “renewed to recognise” God’s spiritual things.
FLOW HOLY SPIRIT – SO I CAN KNOW SPIRITUAL THINGS.
