#4 – Wisdom from the Spirit
Review from last week:
- The truth is – We can be Sealed with the Holy Spirit and not be Filled with Him
- We can have the Holy Spirit IN US but the abundant, overflowing and powerful Kingdom life is the result of the Holy Spirit working THROUGH US
- Though all Christians are equally saved, not all Christians are equally filled and empowered with the Holy Spirit.
Without the Holy Spirit our walk with God will be lifeless and our effectiveness in the Kingdom as individuals and the church will be non-existent.
Be to what the Holy Spirit
1 Corinthians 2:6–16 (ESV)
6 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. 7 But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But, as it is written,
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him”—
10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. 13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. 15 The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. 16 “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
There is that comes from above that we have access to that is given to us by the
Who God is and how He is operates is in a of His own.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
God reveals to His people His mysteries and wonders through
The Spirit who reveals is God, what he reveals is the of God.
Romans 8:12–17 (ESV)
12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
The Holy Spirit and our identity as sons and daughters of God Almighty.
The continued filling and fueling of the Holy Spirit in our lives our level of we have with the Father.
Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
What we receive from the Holy Spirit so often is to others
The word impart literally means “to talk freely about”.
