‘He that is spiritual discerneth all things, yet he himself is discerned by no man.’ (1 Cor. 2:15)
‘The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: SO IS EVERY ONE THAT IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT.’ (John 3:8)
Beyond he sight which can be distinguished in this world, we are called to live. If you are born from above, you are not confined by earthly measures, but by spiritual. Do you walk in the Spirit?
‘If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.’ (Col. 3:1 & 2)
Are you above the world, or immersed in it? Are your affections on things above, or on things of the earth?
Are you born of the Spirit? Can it be said of you that none can discern from whence you come, and to where you go?
The world cannot percieve the born again, your soul contains a secret, a mystery. Within you is the seed of Christ. Where did it come from? It is your eternal life, your spirit reborn: renewed, restored to life by the power of the invisible Holy Spirit.
Yet are you carnal? Do you set your hopes on the temporary hopes of man? Of earthly government? Of earthly pleasures? The world will pass away, and the lusts thereof, but the Word of God abides forever.
There is a secret place, unknown to all who have never entered it: the secret place of the most high. This place is within the spiritual man. Abide in Christ. Do not fear what man fears, neither give heed to the things that they heed, for all will perish that is not of the Spirit of God.
‘Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bring forth fruit of itself except it abide in the vine, no more can ye except ye abide in me.’ (John 15:4)
Let us neither become entangled with the things of this world, for though we have our pilgimage here, these things are the temporary, none of it has eternal value.
Abide in Christ. If you know Him not, repent [turn away from this world], and put faith in His name. You, too can be born again. Eternal life is [personally] knowing God, and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.
