YLT 1 Cor 12:1 And concerning the spiritual things, brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant;
TPT I don’t want you to be confused about spiritual realities.
12:4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.
7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good (for the profit of all).
NAS 1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
WHEN REVELATION COMES YOU SEE DIFFERENTLY. SEEING IS ALSO KNOWING.
Ex. WHEN ADAM AND EVE SINNED WHAT HAPPENED? THEIR EYES WERE OPENED…
Gen 3:5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS DOING RESEARCH.
2 Chr 16:9, Zch 4:10, 1 Pet 1:12
1 Kings 15:5 Because David did what was right in the eyes of the Lord
11 And Asa did right in the eyes of the Lord
16:25 But Omri did evil in the eyes of the Lord
Prov 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch upon the evil and the good.
IT IS THE EYES OF THE SPIRIT THAT SEE INTO THE REALM OF REALITY.
Ezk 44:5 And the Lord said to me, Son of man, mark well and set your heart to see with your eyes and hear with your ears all that I say to you concerning all the ordinances of the house of the Lord and all its laws
Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened,
AMP Ps 13:3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; lighten the eyes [of my faith to behold Your facein the pitchlike darkness]
HEALING IS CONNECTED TO EYES SEEING AND EARS HEARING.
Matt 13:15 For the heart of this people has become dull, With their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes, Otherwise they would see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.’
1 Cor 2:11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,
John 14:16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
THE HOLY SPIRIT ONLY COMES WHERE THE BLOOD IS.
John 16:7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
WE NEED A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,
13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised (Discerned, understood).
TPT 14 Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of God’s Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit.
THE NATURAL MAN CANNOT RECEIVE FROM THE SPIRIT.
15 But he who is spiritual appraises (judges) all things, yet he himself is appraised (judged) by no one.
YOU WALK IN FREEDOM WHEN YOU WALK IN THE SPIRIT.
16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
