Wisdom from the Holy Spirit- 1 Corinthians 2:6-16

YET AMONG THE MATURE WE DO IMPART WISDOM, ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT WISDOM OF THIS AGE OR OF THE RULERS OF THE AGE, WHO ARE DOOMED TO PASS AWAY.  BUT WE IMPART A SECRET AND HIDDEN WISDOM OF GOD, WHICH GOD DECREED BEFORE THE AGES FOR OUR GLORY.  NONE OF THE RULERS OF THIS AGE UNDERSTOOD THIS, FOR IF THEY HAD, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CRUCIFIED THE LORD OF GLORY.  BUT, AS IT IS WRITTEN, WHAT NO EYE HAS SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR THE HEART OF HUMANS IMAGINED, WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM- THESE THINGS GOD HAS REVEALED TO US THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT.  FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT SEARCHES EVERYTHING, EVEN THE DEPTHS OF GOD.  FOR WHO KNOWS A PERSON’S OWN THOUGHTS EXCEPT THE SPIRIT OF THAT PERSON, WHICH IS IN HIM?  SO ALSO NO ONE COMPREHENDS THE THOUGHTS OF GOD EXCEPT THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.  NOW WE HAVE RECEIVED NOT THE SPIRIT OF THE WORLD, BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO IS FROM GOD, THAT WE MIGHT UNDERSTAND THE THINGS FREELY GIVEN US BY GOD.  AND WE IMPART THIS IN WORDS NOT TAUGHT BY HUMAN WISDOM BUT TAUGHT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, INTERPRETING SPIRITUAL TRUTHS TO THOSE WHO ARE SPIRITUAL.  THE NATURAL PERSON DOES NOT ACCEPT THE THINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, FOR THEY ARE FOLLY TO THEM, AND THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED.  THE SPIRITUAL PERSON JUDGES ALL THINGS, BUT THEY ARE TO BE JUDGED BY NO ONE.  FOR WHO UNDERSTANDS THE MIND OF THE LORD SO AS TO INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. 1 CORINTHIANS 2:6-16
