I realised there’s need for me to explain why I have been using certain natural things to explain spiritual things. I figure it might strike someone as odd, that I am explaining righteousness with human reproductive process. Let’s remember that Jesus used parables to explain hard and deep spiritual truth to us.
Besides that, the scriptures expressly say, “…what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, (Romans 1:19, 20 NKJV)
Every spiritual truth has a parallel in nature through which we can understand its spiritual counterpart. It’s the same way that God first gave us the Old Testament as a symbolic representation of the New. So, we understand our leaving the world for Christ as the Israelites leaving Egypt for the promised land, the brazen serpent on the pole as Christ on the cross, etc.
This is one of the practical ways to double check that your interpretation of the scripture is not erroneous. But please be careful here, the primary teacher of God’s word remains the Anointing(Holy Spirit). So, when you think you’ve caught a revelation, and you feel it doesn’t sit well with what you know about God so far, please, God will not kill you for double checking it. Remember that the word of God in scripture is the same word of God that created the natural world. So, if the revelation you got bears no resemblance to anything in nature, please hold on and ask questions.
I hope that clears any odd feeling about where we are currently in our conversation on HOW TO PRACTICALLY OPERATE IN GOD’S SHOES.
YOU ARE CHRIST.
