When I got born again or rather the first time my life was introduced to the reality of Jesus Christ. It happened through an encounter I had with God which I’ve written about in one of my books titled, How I Discovered God.
Soon after my encounter with Him, one of the first things God revealed to me was that Life is Spiritual. You may be wondering: “how do you know it was God? How can you tell the difference?”
All I can say is that it happened in my Spirit. That’s how I know. I had a witness from within, such that it was like when you open the curtain of your window at home and you begin to see what is outside, what is on the other side of the curtain. That was how I got introduced to Jesus Christ.
Did you know that your life is so spiritual, and the spiritual side of it is like distinguishes between black and white?
Everything that happens in your life starts in the Spirit realm and human life today has two sides to it. There is darkness happening and there is light happening as well. People cannot permanently operate from both these sides. It’s either you are living on one side or the other. Which is darkness or light, no exceptions.
Here’s a scripture I want to share with you:”But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-13 KJV
God reminded me of the scripture above today and showed me how everything happening to us starts in the Spirit. Apostle Paul wrote this letter emphasizing how throughout all that he did, it was all happening by the power of the Holy Spirit. It was motivated by the power of the Spirit. And would not have happened without the power of the Spirit.
In an earlier part of the chapter, he says: “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:4-5 KJV
The power of God he was referring to here is the Holy Spirit who is Jesus Christ. The one who causes you and me to walk in the light.The one on the other side of the spiritual curtain of life.
Everything that happens in life has a spiritual source. If this is very true, which it is, then we have to all strive to walk in the Spirit of Light. The one who changes circumstances, the one who shows us who we really are, the one who solves our problems as humanity and shows us what we are here for. The one who brought us on earth in the first place.
And to do so one has to believe in Jesus Christ. That is the only way to know the light. Our lives are Spiritual and when we don’t believe in Jesus Christ then we believe in the other spirit which is darkness.
Come to Jesus Christ, belief in Him, walk with Him daily and your life will never be the same again. Because your life is Spiritual and surely does depend on Him.
