Our Spirituality Restored

So much talk lately speaking about healing the body mind and soul. Some speak of spirituality as something we need to go back to. But spirituality is a concept that is broad and sometimes taken out of context.
The Spirit of God communes with mankind’s spirit only when we are made right with God.
There are three kinds of spirits.
God, the Only Good Spirit, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The ones we now call The Devil or Satan and the fallen Angel’s which a the demons.
Lastly the spirit of man. That part of us that is not physical. It is connected to the mind and body but is not seen. It makes us who we are.
There is only one way to reach a balance of spirituality that is right in our Creator’s sight.
So answering someone’s question,
What kinds of spirituality are there?
There are two…
1. Having a Relationship with God
2. Not having a relationship with God.
The rest, about spirit guides, and guardians and such is spiritism. Frankly, it is being in fellowship with the enemy of God.
It is demonic possession, demonic influence and what will lead us further into despair and lawlessness.
There is a right relationship with God through Christ and there is no relationship with Christ Jesus.
Spirituality has to do with the spiritual condition of the tripart being of human beings.
There are spirits. Good and bad spirits.
Isaiah, tells the story of how Lucifer – Satan, wanted to take the throne of God. He went on to consider himself beautiful, grand and deserving of the title of God. God expelled him from heaven. And the Angel’s that had rebelled with him. A third of the Angel’s of heaven. (Isaiah 14:12-19).
These are the evil spirits. The ones we call the Devil or Satan and his spirits called demons.
The only good, righteous spirit is the Holy Spirit of the triune God. The trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
When we refer to spirituality we are considering the state of the person who is without the knowledge of God. Because Satan provoked Adam and Eve to sin. We are their offspring. Humanity was tainted by sin. The desire to know and be like God.
The same sin the devil commited in the beginning when he was Lucifer.
So when a person seeks to realign, re establish a relationship with God. It is because the Holy Spirit of God. Is opening g their understansing.
Reconnecting to God, the Father can only be done through a relationship we gain. With accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
He reconnects us. He cleanses us from sin. He realigned us to our original destiny. He gives us purpose and clarity and makes us righteous in God’s sight.
John 3 :16 says,
For God so loved the world that he gave his Oy begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
In the book of Mark chapter 1:21-27 we read,
And they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and was teaching. And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, came out of him. And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.
Only Jesus has the power to save us from demonic influence. Those spirits people toy with and cannot then remove from.
Jesus is the Light of the world.
He came to restore our relationship with our Heavenly father. Without him, our hope for total soundness of mind, body and spirit is impossible.
All the religions of the world cannot reconcile us to the Father. There is only one mediator between God and man, the man Chrisf Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5).
The Apostle Paul writes,
In Colossians 1:16-23,
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
And Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day. For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told me.”
John 12:44-50 ESV
In Christ Jesus we can be reconciled with the Father. In him oir spirit is free to live without sin and free of the guilt and shame of sin.
In him alone do we have a spiritual rebirth. God, in Christ Jesus, when we believe in him, restores and and the Bibke says we are made new creatures in Christ.
Our spiritual identity can only be restored in him.
So spirituality is not something we can restore to someone else, unless we are led of God’s Holy Spirit. Only a turning away from our sinful nature, lifestyle and direction and turning to God, repenting of our sins…
Saying Lord forgive me. I believe you are the Son of God. You died for my freedom on the cross. You paid the price for my sin. I believe you are the Messiah, the Christ.
When we believe I’ll n him, we are restored.
So, if we do not know Christ…
We cannot lead the blind unless we first have been given sight.
Christ is the sight we need to restore our spiritual condition.
When we do have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, we are able to stand and fight the enemy. We can stand against depressing spirits. Thise that torment humanity through anxiety and fear. Many people suffer today because of this disconnect with their Creator and Savior.
We can be made whole. In Christ Jesus is the answer for the restoration of our spirituality.
