1 Corinthians 2:14, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” The natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God for he cannot know them. All the knowledge the natural man has is received through his five senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. His mind is actually governed by his senses.
But born-again believers have a knowledge that is above the flesh, above the senses. This knowledge is revealed to us in the Word of God. It’s above the natural. The Bible brings you a revelation, or reveals knowledge to you, which your physical senses cannot grasp. The natural man cannot understand “the things of the Spirit of God.” They are foolishness to him. The Bible is of the Spirit of God. It is not natural human knowledge. Holy men of old wrote as they were moved by the Spirit of God.
Can you understand and reason out God? Can you understand and reason out with your brain Jesus as the Son of God? Can you reason out a virgin giving birth to a child in your brain? Can you reason out the Holy Spirit? Can you understand and reason out divine healing? Remember that we never read in the Bible that we walk by common sense. The Bible says that we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Check yourself now; Are you a natural man or a Spiritual man?
