Man has two, a natural body of senses and a spiritual body or person, made of spiritual matter of spiritual senses, called the outer and the inner man. The great and mighty learned of today, find and accept only the one, the outer or natural, the temporal part of man. They profess, purport, and acclaim great knowledges, that they have learned from an outer temporal, material, earthly way, and then expect all to follow. They are sensuous, educated having learned the body's sensuous temporal ways. They, some, only believe in what they see, hear, smell, taste, and touch, all else they put asunder, even to the putting to doubt of all truths of a spiritual nature, formulating reasonings and reasonings, and then taking pleasure in them that do the same. They cater to their own bodily appetites and desires and mock all things of God for they can neither see, hear, taste, smell, or touch Him, henceforth there is no belief or faith in their Lord, God. They therefore completely separate themselves from their inner, or spiritual man, their second part of themselves, in favor of the one, finding comfort and accord, even a home without windows, blinding and closing them, to their own spiritual man. Not knowing their second or spiritual part, they do not exercise it, learn of it, or train it by experiences, as they do or have done with their temporal natural man. Therefore they have little knowledge or intelligence of the workings of their own spiritual or inner man, and hence little of the things of heaven. Nevertheless they pretend to educate us all on how foolish all these workings of the spiritual man are, as if they have even tried to, have had experience in, or even a wanting too, to learn of the things of this spiritual man. Having two parts to their soul they settle for only the one. Oh, their arrogance, their foolish wisdom, their ignorance, and their laziness.
Let us be self assured that the spirit within man teaches us the peaceful things of the Kingdom. It searches all things, yea, the deep things of God and no man knoweth or understandeth the nature of God or the things of His kingdom or even of heaven itself, save it be by the spirit that resides within the soul of man, yet it must be exercise upon similar principles of the outer or natural man.
Jude 1:18 - 20 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the HolyGhost,
Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
Moses 6:65 And thus he was baptized, and the Spirit of God descended upon him, and thus he was born of the Spirit, and became quickened in the inner man.
