Topic: THE SPIRIT OF A MAN ( part 3 )
Text : 1 Corinthians 2:11-14
11: For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
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.
In part 2 of this teaching I emphasized that a the spirit of a man can be down, polluted and wrong, but for time, I would have emphasized more on a wrong spirit, nothing kills a man more than a wrong spirit inside of him, but one thing you must not forget is this; when your spirit is wrong your life will be wrong, and when you spirit is down your life will be down vice versa, when Holy Spirit permits me I will share more on this, but it is important I tell you the cause and source of a wrong spirit, sometimes when life situation goes wrong and it is not well managed it can take over your spirit, you seems not to see anything right anymore.
My emphasis is this: in v.11 of our passage, there is a Spirit in God ( Holy Spirit ) who only knows the mind of God, there is also a spirit in man who only knows the thoughts of man, now the Holy Spirit searches the mind of God to reveal it to the spirit of man, don’t forget that in part 1 of this teaching I mentioned that it is God who puts the spirit in man, and it is there for communication and information. This is like giving a phone to your child for communication with him or her anytime and anywhere.
It is important you know that the Holy Spirit does not communicate with the spirit of everyman, if your spirit is polluted or probably wrong you won’t be able to hear the Holy Spirit, to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, 1. You must be born again, 2. You must develop good relationship with the Holy Spirit, 3. You must create time to seek him.
God speaking in Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. The Holy Spirit will not take on any man by force, every man who desires him must wait upon him, Jesus speaking in Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Everyone who wants the Holy Spirit must tarry in prayer, fellowship, seeking God’s face, it is at this point the Holy Spirit comes upon your spirit.
When the Holy Spirit comes one of the things he does is in v.12 of our passage, look at it;
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. These are things promised in v.9 that eye has seen, ear has not heard, and it has not come to the heart man, what God has prepared for those who love him, great great things they are, it is for everyone who sets his heart serve God. God bless you.
* Take over my life Holy Spirit.
