Our Verse of Today (13/11/2017)
“The person without the Spirit doesn’t accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 2: 14)
The Title of Our Today’s Topic: The Spiritual and Nonspiritual Christians
The previous verse was written by Apostle Paul to the Christians of Corinthians as part of his message to them through which he was trying to solve some of their problems on top of them their misusing of the Spiritual gifts.
From our verse of today we can learn these very important and valuable points:
1. The spiritual Christians who are led by the Holy Spirit generally they enjoy a lot of spiritual privileges such as the abilities to; hear the voice of Holy Spirit, have dreams and visions from God, differentiate between the true God’s servants and the false ones, discover devil’s agents among God’s people (the Church), etc.
2. But the nonspiritual Christians who are not led by the Holy Spirit they do not enjoy the previous mentioned spiritual privileges.
3. Since; the beginning of the Church during the early times of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, even during the times of Apostle Paul and up to now there were and there are continues conflicts within the Church of God or among the Christians concerning the spiritual things such as; the manifestation of the Spiritual gifts, God’s revelations through dreams and visions, the direct voice of the Holy Spirit, etc.
My dear fellow Christians in general and Churches’ leaders in particular, please kindly neither (or do not) support any spiritual things before conforming its reality nor (or do not also) oppose any spiritual things without conforming its illegality otherwise you will support false things that are not from God or you will reject true or good things that are from God. By then you will be accountable before God and you will be punished for that soon or later on without any compromise, therefore be so careful about spiritual things.
