“substructure: - foundation”

➡️Hebrew 3245/3246/3247


“a primitive root, appoint, take counsel: - foundation”

[1] “I had to feed you with milk, not with solid food, because you weren’t ready for anything stronger. And you still aren’t ready, for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. You are jealous of one another and quarrel with each other. Doesn’t that prove you are controlled by your sinful nature? Aren’t you living like people of the world? For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building. Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ. Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you? God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. Stop deceiving yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world’s standards, you need to become a fool to be truly wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, “He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness.” And again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise; he knows they are worthless.” 💥So don’t boast about following a particular human leader.💥 For everything belongs to you— whether Paul or Apollos or Peter, or the world, or life and death, or the present and the future. Everything belongs to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.”

[1 Corinthians 3:2-3, 9-13, 16-23 NLT]

[2] This book reveals clearly that a believer may be one of three kinds of men:

  • a spiritual man, living in his spirit under the anointing of the Holy Spirit [Romans 8:4, Galatians 5:25]

  • a soulish man, living in his soul under the direction of the soul, the natural life [I Corinthians 2:14]

  • a fleshy or fleshly man, being of the flesh and living in the flesh under the influence of the nature of the flesh

🗝️The Lord desires that all His believers take His grace to be the first kind of man - a spiritual man.

➡️This was the goal of this book, to motivate the Corinthian believers who were soulish, fleshy or fleshly to aspire to the growth of life that they may become spiritual [I Corinthians 2:15, 3:1, 14:37] having been called by God into fellowship with Jesus Christ [I Corinthians 1:9], who is now the life-giving spirit [I Corinthians 15:45], and as we are one spirit with Him [I Corinthians 6:17], we can experience and enjoy Him only when we live in our spirit under the leading of the Holy Spirit. When we live in the soul or in the flesh, we cannot participate in Him or enjoy Him.
