RELEASE OF THE SPIRIT 2

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Inner Spirit
Just as we are dressed in clothes, so our inward person “wears” an outward person: the inner spirit “wears” the psyche.  And similarly, the inner spirit and psyche “wear” the body.

It is quite evident that men are generally more conscious of the outer or outermost person, and they hardly recognize or understand their inner spirit at all.  

Watchman Nee, the author of  The Release of the Spirit has correctly identified  the Bible reference of man’s inner spirit or the inner man (person); he calls man’s soul (psyche) the outer man (person) and for the body he uses the term, the outermost man:

 “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being.”           Ephesians 3: 16

 

The Inner Spirit

We may be able to mouth the word, Not my will but Thine be done,” but how often do we really allow the Lord to take over when things happy.” The person who loves his life will lose it, while the person who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. “                                                                                                                                                   John 12:25

The wind  blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.  So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying, ‘You must be born again.’”                                                                                                                                         John 3: 5, 8   “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”                                  2 Corinthians 5:17

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably Great Power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength. ”                                  Ephesians 1: 17-19
