• SPIRITUAL WORDS TO SPIRITUAL MEN •


[1] ”God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

‭‭[John‬ ‭4‬:‭24‬ ‭KJV‬‬]

”For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

‭‭[John‬ ‭4‬:‭24‬ ‭NLT‬‬]


”God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).“

‭‭[John‬ ‭4‬:‭24‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.“

‭‭[Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭16‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”And they were all filled (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other (different, foreign) languages (tongues), as the Spirit kept giving them clear and loud expression [in each tongue in appropriate words]. Now there were then residing in Jerusalem Jews, devout and God-fearing men from every country under heaven.“

‭‭[Acts‬ ‭2‬:‭4‬-‭5‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”It is these who are [agitators] setting up distinctions and causing divisions–merely sensual [creatures, carnal, worldly-minded people], devoid of the [Holy] Spirit and destitute of any higher spiritual life. But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit; Guard and keep yourselves in the love of God; expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)–[which will bring you] unto life eternal. To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).“

‭‭[Jude‬ ‭1‬:‭19‬-‭21‬, ‭25‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


[2] ”Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.“

‭‭[Jeremiah‬ ‭33‬:‭3‬ ‭KJV‬‬]

”They are not of the world (worldly, belonging to the world), [just] as I am not of the world. Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And so for their sake and on their behalf I sanctify (dedicate, consecrate) Myself, that they also may be sanctified (dedicated, consecrated, made holy) in the Truth.“

‭‭[John‬ ‭17‬:‭16‬-‭19‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. For by the grace (unmerited favor of God) given to me I warn everyone among you not to estimate and think of himself more highly than he ought [not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance], but to rate his ability with sober judgment, each according to the degree of faith apportioned by God to him.“

‭‭[Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬-‭3‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


[3] ”[And I pray] that the participation in and sharing of your faith may produce and promote full recognition and appreciation and understanding and precise knowledge of every good [thing] that is ours in [our identification with] Christ Jesus [and unto His glory].“

‭‭[Philemon‬ ‭1‬:‭6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”The spirit of man [that factor in human personality which proceeds immediately from God] is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts. [I Cor. 2:11.] Loving-kindness and mercy, truth and faithfulness, preserve the king, and his throne is upheld by [the people's] loyalty. The glory of young men is their strength, and the beauty of old men is their gray head [suggesting wisdom and experience].“

‭‭[Proverbs‬ ‭20‬:‭27‬-‭29‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates; yes, lift them up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah [pause, and think of that]!“

‭‭[Psalm‬ ‭24‬:‭7‬-‭10‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”O YOU poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom–right before your very eyes–Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified? Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith?] Are you so foolish and so senseless and so silly? Having begun [your new life spiritually] with the [Holy] Spirit, are you now reaching perfection [by dependence] on the flesh? Have you suffered so many things and experienced so much all for nothing (to no purpose)–if it really is to no purpose and in vain? Then does He Who supplies you with His marvelous [Holy] Spirit and works powerfully and miraculously among you do so on [the grounds of your doing] what the Law demands, or because of your believing in and adhering to and trusting in and relying on the message that you heard? Thus Abraham believed in and adhered to and trusted in and relied on God, and it was reckoned and placed to his account and credited as righteousness (as conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action). [Gen. 15:6.] Know and understand that it is [really] the people [who live] by faith who are [the true] sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify (declare righteous, put in right standing with Himself) the Gentiles in consequence of faith, proclaimed the Gospel [foretelling the glad tidings of a Savior long beforehand] to Abraham in the promise, saying, In you shall all the nations [of the earth] be blessed. [Gen. 12:3.]“

‭‭[Galatians‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬-‭8‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]
