Summary: Be spiritual to discern spiritual things

May the peace of the Lord be with you.


1 Corinthians 2:12-16 King James Version (KJV)

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

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.

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

Beloved, we are very special children of God, who He has blessed with His Spirit so we know what His plans and purposes are for us and receive guidance and provision for the fulfilment of these purposes.

Beloved, we are spiritual people with the mind of Christ and therefore we discern spiritual things. We have the ability to judge all things, that is, examine, investigate and try all things.

We don't have to engage in arguments or have misunderstanding with unbelievers. They don't understand spiritual things because it takes the Spirit of God in you to explain them to you so once they don't have Him they will never understand.

The spiritual information and manifestations we honour and desire are foolishness to the natural man.

Don't allow the judgement of any natural man or anybody at all to have effect on you, for the things you do are illogical to them so they will always find you guilty or consider you and your actions silly.

Spiritual things are for spiritual people not just anybody. As spiritual people, we do spiritual things and speak in same manner. Know beloved, that, the world will never understand you or agree with you because you will never make sense to them but in the end they shall surely see the manifestation of the glory of God.

Let me illustrate the situation. *Which soldier or professional at war will believe that going round a city seven times and shouting at the end of the seventh round will collapse a mighty wall of defence and give a whole nation victory over that city?*

It will sound insane to any natural person. But to the spiritual person, once the direction is coming from God Almighty, the Spirit of God in Him will bear witness with his spirit that it is a spiritual move that will yield the desired results, victory over the city.

Beloved, *ITS ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. Constant and continuous fellowship with Precious Holy Spirit will deepen your spirituality, knowledge, wisdom and understanding in Him. This will make you sharper in dealing with spiritual things.

Prayer: Daddy please cause me to fellowship with Precious Holy Spirit always in the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
