Wisdom from the Spirit
There are people who call themselves Christians as in believers in Jesus Christ. However, many still remain in the world. They hang on to things that have nothing to do with the Kingdom; they justify their 'holding' on out of fear of being in this world by saying "I worked hard for that" or "it belonged to my mother or grandmother" or 'its been in the family for years, why should I give it to someone else" or "its mine, I found it and always will be mine." Those people live in the world and those who live in the world are always afraid.
Those kinds of people are always afraid that someone is trying to take away something from them. They don't realize that everything in this world belongs to God. It is because of this, that we should be able to rest and be at peace knowing that God owns everything and because He does, we have everything all the time and there is no need to be afraid that someone else will claim it for themselves.
Those people are so caught up in the world that they simple can't understand God's knowledge. For not knowing God's wisdom, God's knowledge, we should be afraid. "Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe."1 COR 1:20-23.
The man/woman without the Holy Spirit in him will not be able to recognize the Kingdom of God. For they are of this world. Do not seek to know this world without the Holy Spirit for you will only find what men make of it.
