​

Hidden for us, not from us.

​

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,  which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

- 1 Corinthians 2:7-8

​

It’s the key under the flower pot.

​

“But rather what we are setting forth is a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding] and now revealed to us by God–[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence].” 

- 1 Corinthians 2:7

​

The wisdom of God is like the key under the flower pot, not hidden from you, but for you.

​

Not by the five physical senses

​

But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."

- 1 Corinthians 2:9 

​

Holy Spirit to our spirit.

​

But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

- 1 Corinthians 2:10

​

Holy Spirit in you knows the things of God.

​

For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

- 1 Corinthians 2:11

​

The world can’t receive the things of the Holy Spirit because they can’t be contacted with physical senses.

​

"the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

- John 14:17

​

The things of God are not contacted by the five physical senses, but you have a sixth sense, the spirit in you.

​

He is your teacher.

​

These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

- 1 Corinthians 2:13

​

Spiritually discerned. 

​

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

- 1 Corinthians 2:14 

​

An internal conversation to guide your external conversation.

​

"But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;  "for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.

- Matthew 10:19-20

​

On the fly teaching.

​

"For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say."

- Luke 12:12

​

Holy Spirit speaks IN you giving you words to speak.

​

"But when they arrest [you] and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.

- Mark 13:11

​

meletáō, mel-et-ah'-o; from a presumed derivative of G3199; to take care of, i.e. (by implication) revolve in the mind:—imagine, (pre-)meditate.

Not with human logic.

​

But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.  For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ..

- 1 Corinthians 2:15-16

​

He will connect the dots for you.

​

"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

.- John 14:26

​

Holy Spirit testifies.

​

"except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.

.- Acts 20:23

​

He will speak, or testify

​

"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own [authority], but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

.- John 16:13

​

Conscience or spirit, communicating with Holy Spirit. 

​

I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit,

.- Romans 9:1

​

Not human wisdom, but God’s wisdom.

​

These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

- 1 Corinthians 2:13

​

Conversation is two way.

​

For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands [him]; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

- 1 Corinthians 14:2
