Bible DISCOVERY 2: God is a SPIRIT


JESUS Himself said:
24 God is a Spirit: 
and they that worship him 
must worship him in spirit 
and in truth.
John 4:24 
King James Version

This is why you have to be "born of water and of the Spirit", according to the LORD:

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 
Verily, verily, 
I say unto thee, 
Except a man be born again, 
he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 
How can a man be born when he is old? 
can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 
and be born?
5 Jesus answered, 
Verily, verily, 
I say unto thee, 
Except a man be born of water 
and of the Spirit, 
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 
Ye must be born again.
8 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 3:3-8 
King James Version

Look, also, at how the SPIRIT of GOD created in the beginning:

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, 
and void; 
and darkness was upon the face of the deep. 
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:1-2 
King James Version

When we turn to the Lord, His SPIRIT gives us freedom and clarity, as can be seen from these verses:

14 But their minds were blinded: 
for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away 
in the reading of the old testament; 
which vail is done away in Christ.
15 But even unto this day, 
when Moses is read, 
the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 
the vail shall be taken away.
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 
and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 
there is liberty.
2 Corinthians 3:14-17 
King James Version

And let's not forget the precious GIFT from JESUS, before He left us all:

26 But the Comforter, 
which is the Holy Ghost, 
whom the Father will send in my name, 
he shall teach you all things, 
and bring all things to your remembrance, 
whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 14:26 
King James Version

Now, we also understand why we are battling spiritual forces, and must be equipped spiritually by God, for the physical man is as nothing to these wicked forces.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 
but against principalities, 
against powers, 
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 
against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, 
that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, 
and having done all, 
to stand.
Ephesians 6:12-13 
King James Version
