There is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding.
(Job 32: 8)
In other words, it is the spirit of man that is the human-spirit, that receives inspiration, understanding,
illumination or direction from the Almighty. Therefore, it is by a man exercising his human spirit in following the Lord that God’s Spirit can deposit light, information or knowledge into his spirit man.
For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constrains me. Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles. I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer. (Job 32: 18 -20)
Matters and issues are deposited in our spirits, which are likened to a belly or bottles that are ready to give vent to them. These matters are deposited by the Spirit of God or the inspiration of the Almighty.
The Spirit itself (Himself) bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.
(Rom.8 v 16)
From these two scriptures, we see that the Spirit of God, whom we know today as the Holy Spirit, is the One that bears witness with our human spirit; He gives light, intuition, instruction or direction to the spirit of man. The purpose of this book therefore, is three-fold; to show the relationship between the Spirit of God and the human spirit, to establish that the human spirit is the organ by which man is able to contact the Lord or receive from Him, and lastly, to show that except a man surrenders his soul to the Lord, his spirit cannot be positioned properly and be strong enough to hear and follow the Lord.
