The mind of man vs man's spirit

All of man's five physical senses are connected directly to his physical brain. What man see's, hears, taste's, touches, and smells are all possible because of our brain in our head that process these impulses from each sense, and interprets them to us`. The physical brain was not designed to see, hear, taste, touch, or smell spiritual things, it only operates in the physical world. This is why the Lord God, because of his mercy, and grace shined his light into ALL of men's hearts (spirit) to give us the knowledge of his existence, and the Glory of God, that shines in the face of Jesus Christ!!. Without this revelation man would have no clue that God even exists, and man would not seek him for any reason!!

Tit 2:11 For the GRACE of God that bringeth salvation HATH APPEARED TO ALL MEN,

Notice: Only because of God's grace did he shine his light into ALL men, not some men, not just his elect, or chosen ones, but ALL men!!

2Co 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, HATH SHINED IN OUR HEARTS, TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST.

This revelation was given to ALL men from the beginning when God commanded his to light shine out of the darkness into man's HEART, even before man was ever created!!! You talk about Wisdom, foreknowledge, and understanding that God had in the beginning that is far, and beyond mere human knowledge!!!

1Co 2:9 But as it is written, EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NEITHER HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
1Co 2:10 But GOD HATH REVEALED THEM UNTO US BY HIS SPIRIT: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Notice the word “HEART” in verse ten? This word is referring to man's “MIND”. The Greek word used can be interpreted either as the “mind” or the “heart.” In the context of this verse it would be the mind (brain) of man, because it goes along with the other two senses mentioned. (eye, and ear) When God reveals to man his plans it is through man's “heart” (spirit) not his mind that has a fleshly nature!!
How do I know this? The next two verses tells us.....

1Co 2:11 FOR WHO KNOWS A PERSON'S THOUGHTS EXCEPT THE SPIRIT OF THAT PERSON, WHICH IS IN HIM? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

Only a persons “spirit” knows his own thoughts. Man's spirit is not his brain in his head!! The mind of man is separate from his spirit (heart). The spiritual mind resides in mans heart (spirit) not his brain. Jesus said.....

Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy HEART, and with all thy SOUL, and with all thy MIND.

The heart is not the mind!!! The Apostle Paul referred to the real man inside as the “HIDDEN MAN OF THE HEART”!!!

1Pe 3:4 but let your adorning be the HIDDEN PERSON OF THE HEART with the imperishable BEAUTY OF A GENTLE AND QUIET SPIRIT, which in God's sight is very precious. (ESV)

Man's heart is his spirit in which when God speaks (who is a Spirit) to us he speaks to our spirit (heart)!!!

1Co 2:12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.

Man's brain in his head can never discover spiritual truth on its own, because it was not designed to do so. This is why the scripture said, “...no eye has seen, no ear has heard, neither has it entered into man's mind the things that God has prepared for him...” But, God has revealed all these things unto us by his Spirit to our spirit!!!!

We are told to “RENEW” our mind with the Word of God so that it is not in opposition to the spiritual mind in our hearts or else we would find ours self's as being “double minded” which causes us to receive nothing from the Lord!!!

Rom 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWAL OF YOUR MIND, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
