God has given us a supernatural method of getting wisdom. It is called "Revelation Knowledge." But the people in the world who are not Christians live according to a different kind of knowledge. They live by "Sense Knowledge."
God created us to live in union with Him. We are supposed to function on God's level of ability. When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, he caused a separation to come between man and God. To become disconnected from God was absolutely the worst possible thing that could have ever happened to the human race.
When man's union with God was severed, man's abilities also became separated from God. Mankind fell from the realm of God's ability, to the realm of man's ability. Without the inner spirit man to lead and guide us, our five physical senses became the doors of our mind. After the fall, man's only touch with the world came through what we could perceive with our eyes, our ears and our sense of touch, taste and smell.
At that point in history REASON was born! This is SENSE KNOWLEDGE.
Romans 8:11 reveals that the natural man's walk in life is ordered by his senses. Romans 8:6 says that the mind of the flesh is enmity against God. This way of thinking draws information and forms conclusions from the information we acquire only through our senses.
Mankind was designed to live in a world where nothing is impossible. But without God's ability flowing in our lives, we have learned to see anything above man's ability as impossible. If mankind cannot come up with a solution or a cure in his own intelligence, we say; "it's impossible!"
Luke 18:27 says, "The things impossible with men are possible with God!"
God wants us to walk with Him, in the spirit realm, in the realm of faith. This is the realm where omnipotent power speaks words into being and substance. It is the realm of God, who calls the things that are not as though they were! Adam was an under-ruler for the One who had framed the worlds out of the things which are not, by faith in His own Word, as we see in Hebrews 11:3.
Adam was the father of all men, and his sin caused a state of separation from God for the entire human race. Everybody who is not "born-again" is under the curse of being separated from God. That's why Jesus said that to enter the kingdom of God we must first be born again!
We have to learn once again, to partake of God's nature. We have to live as God originally designed for us to live. We must live by FAITH!
Hebrews 11:1 says "Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
As Christians we must learn to live by the revelation of God in His Word and by His Holy Spirit. That's called, walking by faith and not by sight. When we walk by faith, all things are possible.
In Mark 8:23, Jesus said, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."
So we have a choice to make. Do we live in this world with our sense knowledge and be restricted by what we see, or do we live in the realm of revelation knowledge by faith with God where all things are possible? The choice is ours. Larry Ollison Ministries
