The Lamp of ADONAI
“The human spirit is a lamp of ADONAI;
It searches one’s inmost being.”
Paul once said, “Who knows the inner workings of a person except the person’s own spirit inside him?”(1 Cor 2:11a) This is true of every person who has
surrendered all of himself to the LORD because only those who belong to GOD are
truly alive in their spirit.
The LORD YESHUA once said, “Unless a person is born again from above, he cannot see the kingdom of GOD” (John 3:3). Just like Adam, he did not become a living
soul until GOD breath into his nostrils the breathe of life. Only GOD can give spiritual life. All other beings are “nephesh,” – Hebrew for
a breathing creature. Adam was a
spiritual being able to communicate, understand and fellowship with GOD. In the same manner, a born again person is a
spiritual being endowed with spiritual faculties that perceive and communicate
the things of GOD because he has been transformed into GOD’s kind by the blood
of YESHUA shed on the cross at Calvary. He is indwelt by the HOLY SPIRIT and is
intimately the Temple of GOD.
The human spirit, therefore, is GOD’s searchlight illuminating the inner workings of man so that his old flesh may be renewed and
transformed into the image of CHRIST as originally ordained from the beginning. The human spirit, prompted by the HOLY SPIRIT,
creates hunger within the soul of man, causing him to desire for the things of
GOD especially the Word, and keen to the instruction of the HOLY SPIRIT. The spirit enables the man to discern the
work of GOD around him, attracting him to join in the work of redemption. Slowly but surely, he becomes an extension of
GOD’s hands and feet and speaks as GOD’s effective witness.
The new man is the image of CHRIST. Nothing is impossible to him!
