The Holy Spirit

And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

Isaiah 11:2

The Lord will give the Holy Spirit to anyone that studies, meditates on, believes, and put in practice his Word, which are the scriptures of the Bible.  Anytime I write a blog about a scripture and my interpretation of it, I don’t believe I’m using my own knowledge per se.  1 Corinthians 2:12-13 in the Amplified Bible explains perfectly what I mean pertaining this.  The scriptures say, “No we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God.  And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [to those who possess the Holy Spirit].

I have never claimed to be an expert or scholar in Christian theology.  I do, however, read and know the Bible.  So, when I read a scripture, the Holy Spirit gives me an interpretation of what it means and compels me to share it with the people that desire to read it.  For example, when I write a blog about the coronavirus and what it represents according to the Bible, the Holy Spirit compels me to do this. 

In order for you to understand exactly what I mean; you have to understand what the Bible represents to me.  The Bible, in my opinion, is a spiritual book.  The Word of God.  It does not matter who the author is of certain books in the Bible.  The Book as a collective is spiritual in nature.  The book has history in it, and we should recognize it, but I believe it would be a mistake for someone to read it like a history book.  Every scripture, whether it’s revealed to us or not, has spiritual meaning.  I believe the only way you can fully understand it and apply it is by the Spirit.  To me, that is the difference between the people who claim to understand it, using human knowledge, and still live in poverty, and the people who do understand it, reading it spiritually, and live in prosperity.
