How does Spiritual relate to the Church? Let's examine.


1Jo 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the SPIRIT that beareth witness, because the SPIRIT IS TRUTH.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, THE TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and THE TRUTH shall make you free.

1Jo 4:3 And every SPIRIT that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that {} of ANTICHRIST, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal SPIRIT offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Php 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in THE SPIRIT, and rejoice in CHRIST Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Eph 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the SPIRIT OF WISDOM and revelation in the knowledge of him:

Ro 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the SPIRIT OF GOD dwell in you. Now if any man have not the SPIRIT OF CHRIST, he is none of his.

Ro 8:2 For the law of the SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.


1Co 14:12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of SPIRITUAL {}, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of **the church**.

Eze 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a PARABLE unto the **house of Israel**;

Eze 24:3 And utter a PARABLE unto the **rebellious house**, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it:

Ho 9:7 The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; **Israel** shall know it: **the prophet** is a fool, the SPIRITUAL man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.

1Co 14:37 If any man think himself to be a **prophet**, OR SPIRITUAL, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

Ga 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, **ye** which are SPIRITUAL, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

1Jo 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the SPIRIT of **truth**, and the SPIRIT of **error**.

Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the **error** of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

2Pe 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know {} before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the **error** of the wicked, fall from your own STEDFASTNESS.

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from THE FAITH, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2Ti 2:18 Who concerning the TRUTH have **erred**, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the FAITH of some.

Re 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which SPIRITUALLY is called **Sodom and Egypt**, where also our Lord was crucified.

Joh 19:20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was **nigh to the city**: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

Heb 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered **without the gate**.

Ro 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be SPIRITUALLY minded is **life and peace**.

1Co 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.

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a SPIRITUAL **house**, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Col 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and SPIRITUAL understanding;


Eze 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a PARABLE unto the **house of Israel**;

Eze 24:3 And utter a PARABLE unto the **rebellious house**, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it:

Mt 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in PARABLES: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Mt 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in PARABLES; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

Ps 78:2 I will open my mouth in a PARABLE: I will utter dark sayings of old:

Eze 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a PARABLE unto the **house of Israel**;

Pr 1:6 To understand a PROVERB, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

1Ki 9:7 Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and **Israel** shall be a PROVERB and a byword among all people:

Mt 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the MYSTERIES of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.



The Bible appears to be relating Spiritual to the Church. Christ is the spiritual man and His body is made up of wheat and tares. Therefore SPIRITUAL seems to be referring to the Church either under antichrist in judgment or Christ in salvation.
