Intellect:

The power of knowing as distinguished from the power to feel and to will: the capacity for knowledge. The capacity for rational or intelligent thought especially when highly developed.

 

Where the things of God are concerned most of us rely on intellect alone. God is bigger than the sum of our brains, if he designed it, he must be of higher intelligence than his creation. First and foremost God is a spirit. A major characteristic of spirit beings is that they operate largely unseen. It stands to reason then if we can’t see them, there are ways they communicate with us. Humans are types of beings, so are animals and angels, all created by the same God (see the account in the book of Genesis). God speaks primarily to mans hearts, there are many reasons why we don’t hear him. In the gospel of Mark 4:14:20 the Parable of the sower explains to us why it is that many do not hear the inner voice of God.

 “The sower (God) sows the word. These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, they immediately receive it with joy. But they have no root, and endure only for a while; then, when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are those sown among the thorns, these are the ones who hear the word but the cares of the world, and the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the word and it yields nothing. And these are the ones sown on the good soil: they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred-fold.”

God can use anything to speak to a person who wants to hear him, he is almighty God he commands the winds, the seas and all his creation. In the Bible he has used talking animals, a flaming bush, angels, visions, and a “still small voice” to speak to his people. The heart is the center of the intellect, it consists of one’s intellect, emotion and volition (the act of will).Many of us search for God with our brain power alone. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” Isaiah 55:9 says the Lord.

Mans wisdom rejects God, to get God we have to allow our other senses be open to receive him. God laughs at our wisdom, the Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” God allows those that don’t believe to carry on in their unbelief. He allows their behavior to catch up with them; sometimes they perish other times he intervenes. God wants our hearts and minds to be in fellowship with him, our brain (the mind) receives the word and it transforms our hearts to receive. Intellect is inherently fleshy or of the flesh, God has to speak and change our hearts by his process. When we accept Jesus the old man dies, we become new creatures and it’s this new man that accepts God transforming power in his life. This man is our spirit man; fleshy man will never get God. I believe Eve warred with her spirit. She had been preoccupied in her senses with the fruit she should not have been longing at. If her flesh had been in subjection to her spirit she would not have blundered. Apostle Paul said it best Romans 7:15-19 “ For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.”

The flesh wars with spirit when the spirit man is not in control, of the individual. The issue Paul is addressing is the fight with sin and wrongdoing; we are not able to overcome on our own but with God’s grace we can that is why we need him. What the fall or sin did was to cut us off or severe us from the power source. Satan interrupted what God was doing with mankind through Adam and Eve so he had to send Jesus to finish his work; Jesus is part of the Godhead (Three bare witness in heaven).God is a trinity, and he made man a triune being also because he was created in the image of God. God really loves mankind wow…! “God said, Let us make man in Our image” Genesis 1:26. The Holy Trinity is depicted in the Apostle Paul’s benediction “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” 2 Corinthians 13:14.Further reference of the Trinity spoken by Jesus “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” Matthew 28:19. “I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.Created in the image of God, man is likewise a trinity. He has a spiritual nature that is separate and distinct from the body in which it dwells.

Jesus came to reconcile man to his SUPERNATURAL capacity and giftings. He taught and showed by example the power of the supernatural, in the multiplication of the bread and fishes and turning water into wine. Jesus as part of the Godhead is the bread of life. If you ask him, he won’t refuse you. God hides himself for many reasons, mankind can’t handle the full manifestation of the spirit of God, it is too much. Put away your books meet God in his preordained meeting place, location the church and let him talk to your heart then we can compare notes. Have you seen tumors disappear, diseases healed, lives spared in accidents tell me your stories of God miraculous working power.
I’ve seen the operation of the spirit in churches and people are scared, well the men of old really walked with God they feared and revered him. The church wants revival, God has to manifest in such a powerful way now because of the things we have done and the evil strongholds that need breaking. What I really wanted to get at today is that many individuals who say there is no God has only studied one aspect of mans tripartite nature. The Bible is the foremost authority on the spiritual nature of man. Prove that spirits don’t exist and that the king of spirits is not God, that there are some mysteries we can’t comprehend and I’ll have to change my mind too but until that time I’ve proven God is a miracle working God, He spared my life multiple times and I count no better service than his work. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart Hebrews 4:12.

 

 

I decree and declare a breaking and shattering now in the name of Jesus!

 Let the supernatural work of God take precedence now over the will of men.
