SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
This next scripture enabled me to identify the key that opens all the hidden treasures of God’s wisdom and knowledge. “The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17: 9-10 NKJV
HEART – The heart refers to the mind, the source of thinking, feeling, and action. Matthew 15: 19 NIV
Mark 7: 21-22 – For from the inside, from your heart, come the evil ideas which lead you to do immoral things, to rob, kill, commit adultery, be greedy, and do all sorts of evil things; deceit, indecency, jealousy, slander pride and folly. GNT
Inner Feelings – It is only our own spirit within us that knows all about us; in the same way, only God’s Spirit knows all about God. We have not received this world’s spirit; instead, we have received the Spirit sent by God, so that we may know all that God has given us. So then, we do not speak in words taught by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, as we explain spiritual truths to those who have the Spirit. Whoever does not have the Spirit cannot receive the gifts that come from God’s Spirit. Such a person really does not understand them, and they seem to be nonsense, because their value can be judged only on a spiritual basis. Whoever has the Spirit, however, is able to judge the value of everything, but no one is able to judge him.
