Our spirit must be spiritually energized, by the Spirit of God, through saturation with the Scriptures, by Faith…

Today I am sharing with you a great bible study from and evangelist friend on Face book-of whom I regularly receive his short studies:

 It is the spirit (the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of God and Christ) that quickeneth (to spiritually make alive); the flesh (the natural man)  profiteth (spiritually and scripturally) nothing: the words (By way of application, the Scriptures.) that I speak unto you (The LORD Jesus Christ speaks to us today through the Scriptures and the Spirit.), they are spirit (This is implying the spiritual life giving affect and effect of the Scriptures, through the Spirit of God infused spiritually to the born again spirit of the believer.), and they are life (eternal and earthly abundant spiritual life). John 6:63

It is the spirit (the Holy Ghost) that quickeneth (or to spiritually make alive)

It is the flesh (the natural man), we must render (count it to be so) inoperative through repentance of the works of the flesh, for Jesus said, it (the flesh) profiteth (spiritually and scripturally) nothing…

It is as we identify our flesh (the natural man), by faith, with the crucified Christ, on the cross, that our flesh is rendered in operative, and as we identify, by faith, with the Christ that is resin that we are spiritually made alive. The Apostle Paul taught: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ (the resurrected Christ) liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

It is as we saturate (through daily prayerful meditation) ourselves with the Word of God that our spirit is spiritually energized, by the Spirit of God, the Spirit of the resurrected Christ that lives in us and desires to live the life of the LORD Jesus Christ through us…  

As an illustrating thought: I do not write to offend, but to encourage and to exhort. Today, once again I have found on FB another trite religious saying, included here, which seems to be true, but in reality can reinforce a Laodicea religion that many are blindly practicing today, as they are blinded in such, by the spirit of self-will, self-reliance, self-effort, self-glorification, and self-righteousness. The saying is: Once you have done all you can (which seems to imply to do all you can, which are works of the religious flesh), GOD will do all you can’t!  Is such spiritually and scripturally true? When the LORD Jesus Christ said in the text: the flesh profiteth nothingJohn 6:65, and I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth (spiritually and scriptural dwells, by faith) in me, and I in him (through the indwelling Spirit of Christ), the same bringeth forth much fruit (spiritual and scriptural fruit): for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5
