We were touch that after reading and studying the ” Holy scriptures ” then followed ” meditation “, therefore the Spirit of ” discernment” in terms of ” revelation” takes control of the rest! But, how to always to be led by the Spirit as the substance of our spiritual maturity?
1 Corinthians 2: 6 – 9, describes God’s wisdom as the real foundation of spiritual food: ” Yet I do proclaim a message of wisdom to those who are spiritually mature. But it is not the wisdom that belongs to this world or to the powers that rule this world – powers that are losing their power…” God’s wisdom for those who receive the Doctrine of Christ as Divine, and having been enlightened by the Holy Spirit have looked well into it, see not only the plain history of Christ, and him crucified, but the deep and admirable designs of Divine Wisdom therein. It is the mystery made manifest to Christians today! ( Colossians 1: 26 ). Though formerly hid from the heathen world. It was only shown in dark types and distant prophecies, but now is revealed and made known by the Spirit of God.

” even those who by reason of use , have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil …”
That is their spiritual senses, the internal senses of the understanding, and judgment, signified by external ones, as by seeing the Son; hearing the voice of Christ, savouring or smelling a sweet odour in the things of God, and Christ, lasting that the Lord is gracious feeling and handling the word of life, as these are held forth in the everlasting Gospel; and these being exercised on their proper object, by use , a habit is contracted and such are qualified for discernment, as between moral good and evil, and the worse and better state of the Church ( Christ’s Body ), and between Law and Gospel, so between the Doctrines of Christ, and the doctrines of men…Such experienced persons find to be good… and the discernment they make, and the judgment they form, are not according to the dictates of carnal & worldly reason, but according to the Scriptures of truth founded in the Bible, and their own experience
