When we say that God is a Spirit, what do we mean? We cannot see God with our natural eyes. He's invisible. We cannot hear Him with our natural ears. We cannot touch Him with our hands. We cannot interact with Him using any of our five physical senses! Scientists cannot put God in a test tube and analyze Him, can they?

But He's very real.

God exists in what we call the "spirit world." Even though we can't interact with it with our five physical senses, the spirit world is just as real as the world we can see.

Who else lives in the spirit world? Jesus, the Holy Spirit, angels, demon spirits, and the devil all exist in the invisible spirit world. Even people who have already died still exist in the spirit world because spirits never die. Only our physical bodies die.

Whether a person is a Christian or not, their spirits will live forever, either in heaven or hell. However, they do not continue to live on earth, in spite of what some religions might try to tell us.

The Spirit World is Everywhere
That leads us to another question—where is the spirit world? It's everywhere! It's all around us on this earth. If God were to open our eyes right now to be able to see into the spirit world, we would see that this room is full of angels!

We would also be able to see demon spirits who are always trying to pull us away from the Lord. But we each have an angel watching over us (Matt. 18:10) all the days of our lives.

Finally, where else does the spirit world exist? In heaven and in hell! We can see that we actually live in two worlds—we live in the natural world that you can see, touch, hear, taste, and smell with our physical bodies. But because we are made in God's image and are spirits, we also live in the spirit world.

We've learned to get along pretty well in the natural world. That's the easy part because we do it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and have for all of our lives. But to find out we are also spirits means we need to learn how to function in the spirit world too.

We have to learn a new way to see and hear. We learn to see with our spirit eyes and hear with our spirit ears instead of our natural eyes and ears!

The Holy Spirit is constantly trying to show us and tell us things, and we must learn how to listen to Him.
