“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”– the things God has prepared for those who love him– these are the things God has REVEALED TO US BY HIS SPIRIT. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God…” (1 Corin. 2:9-10)
When I was gloriously saved I was working as a design engineering in a very competitive marketplace. I was blessed to have designed and patent systems for the Graphic Arts Industry, so as I began, for the first time at age 29, to study the bible, I felt I could understand because of my intellectual abilities. As I studied my feeling was that I had a good understanding, then I arrived at Romans 6, discovering that I had no idea what it was talking about. So, I asked the Lord TO REVEAL TO ME WHAT THE MEANING WAS. He led me to the above scripture!
“What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, SO THAT WE MAY UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD HAS FREELY GIVEN US.“ (1 Corin. 2:12)
Take note, there are wonderful things which God hath prepared for those of us who love him, and wait for him. There are such awesome things prepared for our future life, things which sense cannot discover, present information cannot deliver to our ears, or can enter our hearts. Life and immortality are brought to light through the gospel, 2Tim. 1:10. But the apostle speaks here of the subject-matter of the divine revelation concerning the gospel!
“Don’t you know that YOU YOURSELVES ARE GOD’S TEMPLE and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst…YOU TOGETHER ARE THAT TEMPLE.“ (1 Corin. 3:16-17)
Christ by his Spirit dwells in all of us. We are sacred to God! If we are the temples of God, we must do nothing that shall separate ourselves from him, we cannot corrupt and pollute ourselves, and in so doing make ourselves unfit for his use; and we must not listen to doctrine that would seduce us to any ungodly practices!
“…the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight…The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.“ (1 Corin. 3:18-20)
Something awesome happened to me as I began seeking my Abba Father for divine revelation, He opened my understanding to His word and continues to do so each day. There is an infinite source of revelation, all from THE LOVING AND LIVING WORD OF GOD!
WE OURSELVES ARE GOD’S TEMPLE AND GOD’S SPIRIT DWELLS WITHIN IN US!
