But a natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14)

In the New Testament part of the Bible, there are two letters written by Paul to the disciples of Jesus who were living in the Greek city of Corinth during the First Century.

There were factions among the believers there, and Paul, who was at the center of these factions, wrote about the difference between the natural intellect of the worldly system, and spiritual wisdom that comes from God in his first letter to the believers living in Corinth.

Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written: “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND WHICH HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HUMAN HEART, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”

For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

For who among people knows the thoughts of a person except the spirit of the person that is in him?

So also the thoughts of God no one knows, except the Spirit of God. Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God.

We also speak these things, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

But a natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:6-14)

Western culture, which is based on Darwinian evolutionary biology, completely ignores the spirit world, and focuses only on the physical elements of our world. The system of academia that looks at the world this way, which excludes God and our own spiritual life, is called “science,” which is just simply a modern-day form of religion.

The very narrow way “science” is defined today excludes much of our life experiences, because very little of what we learn throughout our life comes via the “scientific method.”

Most of what we learn throughout life comes via acquired knowledge that we learn from other people that we consider more knowledgeable than ourselves, and not through research and scientific discovery.

When you want to learn how to drive a car, for example, do you study mechanics, how engines work, how a car is built and maintained, etc.?

Or do you go find someone who already knows how to drive a car that you consider an expert on the subject, and ask them to teach you how to drive?

This is how we learn most things in life, by seeking out “experts” who know more than we do, who we trust to give us reliable information.

Today, the “experts” that our culture looks to for knowledge and wisdom, are those who have been educated at colleges and universities and are able to put impressive letters after their name, such as PhD, MD, etc.

If you are discussing medical or health issues, you seek out someone who is an expert and who looks like this person who appeared on the set of the Alex Jones show this week:

The person shows they are an expert by wearing a white robe, and draping a stethoscope around their neck. This is the sign of authority, and wisdom, in today’s culture.

Is it logical or rational, or even “scientific”, to look at a person wearing a white robe and a stethoscope draped around their neck as someone who is “wise”? Was Alex Jones sick, so this person had to bring his stethoscope to listen to his heart, and wear a white robe to protect his clothing?

No, it is neither logical nor “scientific.” It represents a cult belief. It is religion.

Paul wrote:

Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” (1 Corinthians 3:18-20)

Now this is not an attack on Alex Jones and his guest. I did not watch the interview, and it is entirely possible that they discussed very good topics and gave very useful information.

I am simply pointing out that we are so easily swayed by symbols of authority and wisdom, when those symbols actually mean nothing, or worse, are occultic symbols that we don’t even realize because they are so prevalent in our culture.

When we read the ancient literature of the Bible, however, we are reading words written during a period of history where people did not ignore the spiritual world, at least not everyone, and the message of the Bible is that true wisdom is spiritual, and comes from God through the spiritual world, not the physical world.

The physical world belongs to Satan, and the physical part of man is often referred to as the “flesh.”

Paul explained to the believers in Corinth that there were divisions and factions among them because they were “fleshy,” and not mature in the spiritual wisdom that comes from God.

And I, brothers and sisters, could not speak to you as spiritual people, but only as fleshly, as to infants in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to consume it.

But even now you are not yet able, for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like ordinary people? (1 Corinthians 3:1-3)

Things are obviously the same today, because almost everyone in our culture today worships the physical world and those considered “experts”: scientists and doctors.

But modern science and medicine completely ignore the spirit world.

This is a very important point to understand, because the physical world is temporary, while the spirit world is not. All of us are going to experience the physical death of our bodies. But our spirit will live on.

Our physical bodies cannot enter the Kingdom of God.

Now I say this, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. (1 Corinthians 15:50)

Therefore, the spiritual life is far more important than the physical life, and modern day scientists and medical doctors have nothing to offer to enhance our spiritual life, at least not from their academic training in Darwinian biology that only believes in the physical world, which belongs to Satan.

That’s why the “wisdom of this world” is “foolishness” before God.

If you want to be truly wise, you need the Spirit of God:

For those who are in accord with the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are in accord with the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.

But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. (Romans 8:5-11)

None of us are born into the Kingdom of Heaven. We are born into this world, which is controlled by Satan. Our spirits need to be “recreated,” as Paul explained in his second letter to the believers living in Corinth:

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.

And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.

We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:14-21)

John, another “ambassador” (apostle) of Christ who was with him during his entire earthly ministry before he rose from the dead and went to heaven, refers to this “new creation” as being “born again” in the Spirit.

Spiritual Wisdom vs. Worldly Wisdom

So obviously, Spiritual wisdom that comes from God, is more valuable than worldly wisdom based on the physical world controlled by Satan.

It has always been this way, and when God miraculously delivered the Hebrews as slaves from the Egyptians, he specifically told them NOT to listen to the wisdom of the world, but to listen to his voice.

This is recorded in the writings of Moses in Deuteronomy when the children of those delivered from Egypt were about to enter the “Promised Land”:

When you come into the land that the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations.

There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD.

And because of these abominations the LORD your God is driving them out before you.

You shall be blameless before the LORD your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners.

But as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do this.

The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers–it is to him you shall listen– just as you desired of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, “Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.” (Deuteronomy 18:9-16)

This “prophet” referred to here by Moses, was Jesus Christ. Jesus took upon himself the death sentence for all of our sins, allowing us to have direct access to God now, and to receive Spiritual wisdom directly from him.

As far as “fortune tellers, charmers, mediums, diviners,” etc., we still have them today. They just go by different names, like “doctors, scientists, psychologists,” etc. – but their function is the same. They are the sources of the “worldly wisdom” that God calls “foolishness.”

And most of them are Christians, sitting in the American churches every Sunday, or even leading them.

That’s why most churches fell in line with the medical dictators and politicians who funded them to become Synagogues of Satan by becoming vaccine clinics for the COVID shots.

And it is also the reason why I have called all true disciples of Jesus to now leave the corporate churches.

Synagogue of Satan: Why It’s Time to Leave the Corporate Christian Church

There may be some who still feel that their church has something positive to offer them, but if you have children and you decide to not participate in their sorcery and magic called “medicine,” particularly “vaccines,” just know you risk having your children taken away from you by the Child Welfare police, because many of them also sit in the pews of American Corporate Churches each Sunday, along with the medical priests.

But here’s the good news: you don’t need Corporate Christianity or their churches! If you have been redeemed by the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, you are part of God’s spiritual temple, and you have direct access to God and his Spiritual wisdom, with no “experts” like “pastors and priests” necessary. See:

To “Save” America will the Foundation of the Corporate American Christian Church Need to be Destroyed?

Seek out Spiritual wisdom! As I wrote earlier, most of what we learn in life is through others teaching us, and not the false god of “science.” Seek out others who have Spiritual wisdom, and start meeting together with them rather than “going to church,” but most of all, talk to God yourself and learn directly from him!

No one knows you better than God, because he created you!

King David wrote in Psalm 139:

O LORD, you have searched me and known me!

Have you ever stopped to consider what it means that “God searches” me? Why does he search me, and what does that mean??

Psalm 139 declares the wonderful truth that each one of us is specially created by God:

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

Think and meditate on that! Your “inward parts” were knitted together by God!

So when he “searches us” as our Creator, he can see and find EVERYTHING there is about us, right down to the cellular level, or down to our DNA code, or even the specific atoms that are all strung together to make you who you are!

These thoughts are so incredible, that it caused David to say:

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand.

So when a health problem comes your way, what is the first thing you do? Do you run first thing to the one who knows you the most intimately and actually searches you?

Or do you automatically run to medical professionals who, while maybe having more knowledge than yourself regarding medical matters, cannot even compare to the knowledge God has of you, because he can search you all the way down to the smallest component of your physical being?

And since God has this incredible knowledge of your physical, emotional, and spiritual makeup as your Creator, do you think he is interested in communicating to you what your problems are and what the solutions are?

David did. At the end of this wonderful Psalm he wrote:

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.

For everyone reading this, I pray the same prayer for you that Paul prayed for the believers in his day:

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.

And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:9-14)
