More than knowing About God

More than knowing About God

3. Man then relies on the inferior organ ie the brain to reason and understand. He cannot know God. He can only know ABOUT God.
“But the natural man received 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)
Man’s intellect is far inferior (1 Corinthians 1:20)
The intellect organ was not given to know God. So we may have all the knowledge about God and some may even outwardly practice and do good works but never have a relationship with God. (Good works here inevitably is motivated for self advancement)

4. There is hope however in our believe (Trust) in and obedience to Yeshua. His spirit will then dwell in us and this is the spirit of truth that will reveal God to us.

1 Corinthians 2: 9-12
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him?  Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”
