The natural man (a manifestation of the Adamic nature)

A frail voice from Britthaven nursing home in Raliegh, NC was the voice for Christ before Brother Lindsey passed in 2003. I anxiously looked forward to our phone conversations about the things of God and the truth of His Word. I held great reverence to the Apostleship of Brother Hubert Lindsey. Brother Lindsey’s compassionate heart and knowledge about Christ left an impact on this writer that will never be forgotten. That was one of the things that prompted this Blog.

I remember on one occasion, Brother Lindsey quoting the scripture verse about the “natural man”. Brother Lindsey carried this heartfelt conviction and belief with him all the way into eternity. His frail yet authoritative voice from the bedside – stated the following verse…

1 Cor 2:14…But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

That day the Holy Spirit branded it in my heart. I realized a natural man was not a spiritual man. The Adamic Nature rules. A natural man doesn’t have Christ in his heart. A natural man does not receive things from the Spirit of God. To be honest spiritual things are foolishness to a natural man. A natural man has no knowledge of deliverance from sin nor does he know anything about having a clean heart.

Being able to understand and distinguish things that are spiritual and and things that are not spiritual has been one of the greatest blessings this writer has ever received in this life. Today, I am honored to be a child of God led by the Spirit of the living God. I am honored that Brother Lindsey had enough holy boldness to tell this writer the truth about what a child of God really was. I have cherished those talks and conversations from Brother Lindsey for many years as they have built this writer up in the faith I have in the Lord Jesus Christ. I have always trusted the message that Brother Lindsey preached for Christ. God honored that preaching as Brother Lindsey simply led me to believe and trust more in the person of Christ he served.

So many times Brother Lindsey brought the word of knowledge to this writer. He taught me the contrast between fallen man and the power of a resurrected Saviour. Yes, I remember vividly that frail voice descibing the “natural man” as taught in the Bible. Today in my personal ministry I see the natural man in the world I live in. I’ve witnessed spiritual men going back to their natural state as they fell into sin, left Christ, and had their conscience seared like with the hot iron. The natural man is hopeless and without strength to overcome sin. He is a fallen being destitute of truth and righteousness that comes from the person of Christ that saves us. The natural man will even reject the truth about Christ because he imagines that it is foolishness or that man cannot have a holy heart or live a holy life. A natural man grows to enjoy the pleasure of sin and wrongful living above obedience and rightsatnding with God. A natural man is without the Spirit of Holiness.

This blog site is dedicated to Brother Lindsey’s ministry for Christ. That ministry still impacts lives today. I respect the fact that Brother Lindsey taught this writer how to be a full time believer and not a part time believer. Brother Lindsey did not teach sinning religion…he taught that Christians were “full time” spiritual men and not natural upon occasion. The great contrast he taught was that a natural man was fallen before the new birth. After the new birth – man was no longer fallen as he became, saved by the Grace of God. The believer in Christ becomes a spiritual man who lives, walks, and talks the Spirit life of a child of God.

The natural man is made a spiritual man when Christ is found in the human soul. I thank God for those little and simple conversations with Brother Lindsey. I look forward to sharing Eternity in Heaven with Brother Lindsey when I leave this life. Until then I will serve the Lord with a whole heart and always remember the impact that Brother Lindsey had on this writers life.
