Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” John 3:4
1 Corinthians 2:14 says, “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” This is the Amplified Bible translation: “But the natural [unbelieving] man does not accept the things [the teachings and revelations] of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness [absurd and illogical] to him; and he is incapable of understanding them, because they are spiritually discerned and appreciated, [and he is unqualified to judge spiritual matters].”
Wow! Did you see that? The carnal man is incapable of understanding spiritual truths and is unqualified to talk about spiritual matters!
Remember that when next you are having discussions and debates about spiritual things. And it’s sad that many believers have allowed themselves to be misled by carnal men who quote scriptures. Beloved, even the devil quotes scriptures!
I pray for you today, that God will give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of Him. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can have perfect understanding of spiritual realities. Amen.
