But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 1 Corinthians 2:14
Why does the Bible seem like nonsense to some people? Why do some people misinterpret scripture? Its because without the Holy Spirit we cant understand the Bible. Without the Holy Spirit we cant understand God.
Before the New Covenant, Israel would rely on Prophets of God who were filled with the Holy Spirit to mediate between them and God. However in the New Covenant , God has poured out his Spirit upon us (Acts 2:17)
But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 1 Corinthians 2:15
The Holy Spirit allows us to see things through the eyes of Christ. This is why Jesus said we will be known by our Fruits (Matthew 7:20) If someone is living and speaking carnally minded, they probably are not Born Again. So how do we receive the Holy Spirit? Become Born Again!
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. John 3:3-5
Jesus said nobody is saved unless they become Born Again. How to become Born Again, believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and repent of your sins. When you truly receive Christ into your heart you become baptized by the Holy Spirit
Once that baptism of the Holy Spirit happens you will start to see and understand things from a whole new perspective. If you want to know and understand God, come to Jesus Christ and receive him into your heart! Amen!
