From Natural to Spiritual

23/10/2017

How to pierce the spiritual reality?

- Definition of natural: what is perceptible by sight. Bodies visible to the naked eye: what is the physical world.

- Definition of spiritual: that which is of the nature of the spirit. Which comes from thought: invisible things.


Colossians 3.1: "If therefore you are risen with Christ, look for the things from above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God." Affect the things above, not those on the earth."


1-) Eternal life is spiritual.


All Scripture is inspired by God, she is alive and efficacious, she affirms that we are children of God in Christ. In our Christian life, we become aware that the spiritual life is active. We feel it, it is real since it is eternal. As a new creature, we are then more and more sensitive in the presence of God because we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. This heavenly birth is more reliable than wisdom and the human experience.


2 Corinthians 4.18: "Because we look not at visible things, but at those that are invisible: for visible things are transient, and the invisible are eternal."


2-) The attitude to live the spiritual dimension.


When we walk in the natural, we function in the flesh. But commitment and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ is the guarantee of our faith manifested by prayer, we become spiritual through the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is the story of brothers and sisters changed by the power of God, strong experiences that manifest themselves in a growing sanctification.


Romans 6.4 : "So we were buried with him by baptism in his death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too would walk in newness of life."


We must be in order before God, show him a sincere and faithful attachment. This is the attitude that the Lord desires for each of His servants. To be in the direction of the Holy Spirit, we place ourselves under the gaze of God in our thoughts, in our words and in our actions. Compassion for those in need is the heart of God.


2 Corinthians 4.16 : "Therefore we do not lose heart, and even as our outer man destroys himself, our inner man renews himself from day to day, for our light afflictions of the present moment produce for us, beyond every measure, an eternal weight of glory...."


3-) Take control.


The Christian life is an impulse of the Holy Spirit that impels us to manifest his nature: a life of devotion and compassion. The expectation of God is the culture of love for our neighbor, it flows from our personal relationship with Christ. We must therefore be filled with the Holy Spirit to manifest the fruits and to see the consequences.


2 Corinthians 5.7: "For we walk by faith, not by sight, we are full of confidence."


The Word tells us "the universe was formed by the word of God, so that the visible world was not made from visible things." (Hebrews 11: 3) So the spiritual precedes the natural. In other words, the realities we live in this physical world are the reflection (a shadow) of the spiritual world. A believer who chooses to delight his master Yeshua receives a powerful encouragement: "This hope we possess as an anchor of the soul, sure and solid, it penetrates beyond the veil, where Jesus entered for we as precursor, having been made high priest forever." (Hebrews 6.19).


Hebrews 11.1: "Faith is a firm assurance of the things hoped for, a demonstration of things that are not seen."


Conclusion : Spiritual realities are an integral part of the physical world, like a sheet of paper that has two "A" and "B" sides that are distinct but united. By faith, we can believe what our eye can not see, it is the work of the Holy Spirit that touches the hearts. The Christian will therefore draw strength and substance from the Word of God, it is the revelation of the splendor of the Gospel. In other words, by the Holy Spirit and not by our own strength, we see our true condition and we can take control. If we ask and believe, we will see the anointing of God seize us. Our first capital ability is spiritual.


Revelation 3.18 : "For this reason, Jesus advised:" I advise you to buy from me. . . eye drops to anoint your eyes so that you can see."


To live this freedom, you have to persevere in the light! The wisdom of God will then make us grow, to the point that even adversity will become a catalyst for our own fruits. Spiritual growth comes not from time, nor from knowledge, but from God. We then see and share the blessings of the Good News of the Kingdom. Nothing is greater than the Glory of God and everyone is worthy to receive it in Jesus Christ. When we express our love, the sluices of heaven open, so let the peace of God flow in all areas of our lives!


1 Corinthians 2.13 : "And we speak not of it with the words of human wisdom, but with those taught by the Holy Spirit, so that we use spiritual language to express the spiritual. He does not accept what comes from the Spirit of God, because it is foolishness for him, he is even incapable of understanding it, because it is spiritually that one judges it." Amen!
