Spirit of God to know

Our faith should not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God (1Cor.2:5). The power of God is the Spirit of God, by which it is revealed. Only through the Spirit of God can we know the mind of God (2:11). The wisdom of God is revealed in mysterious ways. It is hidden from those who are void of the Spirit of God. The hidden mysterious wisdom of God is only revealed through His Holy Spirit (vs.10). Just as the spirit of man knows the mind of man, the mind of God is only known by the Spirit of God (vs.11), hence, “God is Spirit”. Thus, only by the Spirit can we receive anything from God.

The things about God that we discuss are not dependant on the knowledge of man’s words or wisdom, but it’s dependant upon the teaching of the Spirit (The Teacher). Spiritual things are revealed to the spiritually minded (vs.13). The natural man (one void of the Holy Spirit) rejects spiritual things; they are foolishness to him. His natural mind cannot understand. His intellect cannot even come close to perceiving spiritual things. They are like oil and water, they don’t mix. No wonder he gets frustrated.

The one who has been born again which includes being “born of the Spirit” (Jn.3:3-8) discerns everything, yet no man can discern him (1Cor.2:15). Also, who may teach this kind of stuff, the mind of the Lord? Those who have the mind of Christ, by being born of the Spirit (vs.16).

    I’m so thankful to be spirtually minded, There were many years when I did not listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit, Those were the years of struggle and doubt.
