For it is written, I [God] will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. —1 Corinthians 1:19
There are two kinds of wisdom: the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God; the wisdom from above the natural man cannot comprehend. It never enters his imagination to think of the things God hath prepared for those who love Him.
God hath prepared wondrous things already, and He hath revealed them to us by His Spirit. His Spirit lets us down into the deep things, even the deep things of God. This is what we preach, what we practice, and what we stand on. The work of the Spirit is foolishness to the natural man; but he that hath the Spirit can discern spiritual things.
There are many kinds of power, and many spirits going out in the world today. We are told to try the spirits because they are many. Everything is revealed by God through the blessed Holy Ghost. There is only one Spirit with whom we want anything to do with. We want nothing to do with our own spirit, nor any other spirit, but only with the Spirit of the living God. As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. He will lead us into all truth, all the way; He will lead us where we can get the truth. The child of God will be lead into the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire and the Pentecostal baptism.
Then we can go from one deep thing to another. The Holy Ghost is sent to us by Jesus Christ, and all gifts come through the Holy Ghost. Jesus said the Holy Ghost would not speak of Himself, but of Jesus. The Holy Spirit will speak to you and show you the things to come. We believe it. Glory to God!
Holy Spirit, reveal to me the difference between
Your wisdom and the wisdom
of this world. Amen.
