“9 But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him.
10 But God has revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
The Word of God is not learned through worldly wisdom or intellectual philosophies. This is precisely why it is of no use to debate the Bible with unbelievers or those with an intellectual knowledge who have a fabricated religion from their own mind…those who are walking after the flesh.
The Lord reveals His Word by His Spirit. Without a true Revelation from the Lord, one cannot understand the Lord or His Word. When the rightly divided Word of God is declared from the pulpit, the Holy Spirit quickens the heart of the people. He will convict, bear witness and lead us into all Truths according to the Word of God.
“10 And the disciples came, and said unto Him (Jesus), Why speak you unto them in parables?
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.” Matthew 13:10-13
Whosoever has the desire to grow in Grace and knowledge of the Lord, to them it shall be given and they shall have an abundance. However, hear this friends, whosoever has not the desire to grow in Grace, to seek Him for Who He is and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross…those who are merely curious, not only will they lose what they could have had but also what they have will be taken away.
This is their knowledge of the Lord, their Light given to them by the Lord that is spoken of here and it is happening as we speak. Seeing they see not. For many, their heart has waxed cold to the ways of the Lord. Intellectual philosophies and humanistic psychology has seduced them…they are led by the flesh to things of the flesh.
Jesus said if “I” be lifted up, HE will draw all man unto Him (John 12:32)….not blood moons, shemitahs, harbingers and whatever that is happening with the stars in September (Deuteronomy 4:15-20). Pool parties, games and movies will not draw the lost to Christ…the Holy Spirit will draw the lost to Jesus when HE is lifted up to the people.
The Light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is revealed to us by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit works within the parameters of Jesus Christ and His redeeming work on Calvary’s Cross. This is the Law of the Spirit of Life IN Christ Jesus (Romans 8:2) that we enter into at Salvation because of our faith in Jesus, Who He is and what He has done to pay the penalty of sin for whosoever will believe.
When philosophies begin to temp our intellect, our light begins to fade. Our knowledge is no longer revealed to us by the Spirit of God through the Word of God but by man made philosophies…seeing we see not.
“But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
Don’t argue the Word of God with those who are not seeking the Lord but contend for the faith of those who are…there is a difference. Let us all consider what we see not.
