Spiritual Words


Listen to Audio Version

1 Cor 2:13

When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit's words to explain spiritual truths.*


Linda tried her best to talk to her local chickens; these were times when she was so lonely and just wanted to talk to someone. There were times when she went to the back of the house and saw those chickens that would only run away when they see her approaching. She tried several times to have a conversation with them but they would not understand and only run away. She couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t even get some basic words after all this days of trying to teach them…

In the same way, it is only those that are born of the spirit of God that can understand spiritual language. No matter how you try, the words of the kingdom can only be understood by those who are in the kingdom.

It is impossible to use words of human wisdom; words inspired from the realm of the mind to accurately pass across spiritual reality and knowledge because when you are speaking such spiritual things, you seek to build the spirits and not the minds of men therefore you would need to depend of the Holy Spirit to inspire the words that you use.

The following verses after our text shows us that it is only those who are spiritual that get to understand spiritual truths.

The knowledge of the deep things of God is what reveals the keys to the power and wisdom that God has given. Those that can understand these mysteries are those who are mature in the spirit; these are those who have trained themselves to not walk in the flesh but follow the leadings of the spirit.

Go into today knowing that all grace abounds toward you.

By Abraham Damilola Arigi
