"The Kingdom of God ... is in the Holy Spirit"
Although this study is primarily about some of the understandings to do with Christ's New Covenant Kingdom of God it also covers associated things, hence the title Biblical Knowings. These associated things are intended to be helpful observations and hints in living out the understandings in everyday life.
When Paul said, "I know whom I have believed!" so confidently he showed that he possessed a spiritual understanding from the word of Christ. It was part of his disposition. He knew something wonderful, so he said:
"... I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day," 2 Timothy 1'12.
Every genuine Believer can possess such understandings too and say them with confidence.
Throughout the centuries Believers have possessed and expressed these understandings with the same confidence. Sadly though, there are Believers today who find themselves in various oppressive situations. They too possess them but can't say them out loud.
It is through spiritual understandings that the Holy Spirit conveys assurance and confidence. He puts Believers in a place where He can move in our lives.
Biblical knowings come to those who believe: "By faith we understand" and "faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God" (Hebrews 11'3, Romans 10'17).
And the Holy Spirit responds to faith. For instance, here's a testimony from way back:
"By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts ...," Hebrews 11'4.
Listen to what Job said:
"I know that my Redeemer lives. And He shall stand at last on the earth. And after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God whom I shall see for myself," Job 19'25-27.
When Believers read Christ's New Covenant Kingdom word and believe it they are able to say, "I know that I know that I know". Because, "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God," Romans 8'16.
