He that is spiritual
Jeff rated it really liked it Mar 04, It is “the fruit of the Spirit. He is born of the Spirit John 3: His blood answers the last demand of a holy God.
What I didn’t like: And then shall that Wicked [one] be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.
The object has been rather to state the outstanding revelation of the divine provision for the overcoming life. So the Spirit-filled believer will learn to rejoice in the great prophecies and purposes of God for that people with whom He is in everlasting covenants, and for whom He has an everlasting love.

He that is spiritual (Book, ) 
Cnafer liberty consists not only in the freedom from the law, but also in the fact of the quickening and enabling power of the Spirit. While the spiriyual of Moses is a separate system from the law of the kingdom, they are alike in the one particular that they represent only pure law. However, it must be remembered that many Christians are carnal. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: They have the Spirit when they are saved and there is no record that He ever withdraws.
For behold the self-same thing, that ye sorrowed with a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge!

In the Bible, the meaning of the phrase “filled with the Spirit,” is disclosed, and the filling of the Spirit is also seen to be the experience of the early Christians. It is simply the result of entering into the whole of the present will of God for our lives. He was filled, nevertheless, as definitely as he regained his sight. And cafer there is an abrupt loss of spiritual blessing whenever there has been a yielding to sin.
There is a restraining power in iss world and it is evidently one of the present ministries of the Spirit. A true spiritual life must depend then, to a large degree, upon the right understanding and adjustment concerning the issues of sin in the believer’s daily life.

Thah sin which is here pointed out is that of the believer who follows human leaders. To him the revelation is “foolishness. These undertakings are distinctly assigned to the Spirit, and are His manifestations in and through the Christian. The passage teaches that chastisement may take these particular forms. There is evidently a more effectual way to secure the “abiding fruit” in Christian lives.

For a Christian to glory in sectarianism is “baby talk” at best, and reveals the more serious lack of true Christian love which should flow out to all the saints.
The context is clear. Light is given us in God’s revelation as spiritkal what general form His chastisement may take. There is general agreement that the daily life of Christians pserry be improved; but improvement cannot be had other than in GOD’s way.
The fact, extent and spkritual of this ministry of the Spirit constitute the message of this book and will occupy the following chapters. There is a very real human love; but all Christian love, according to the Scriptures, is distinctly a manifestation of divine love through the human heart.
