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)
