You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.

Psalm 31:20


20 Thou shalt hide [cathar] them in the secret [cether] of thy presence [paniym] from the pride [rokec] of man ['iysh]: thou shalt keep them secretly [tsaphan] in a pavilion [cukkah] from the strife [riyb] of tongues [lashown].  KJV-Interlinear


20 Thou dost hide them in the secret place of Thy presence from the conspiracies of man; Thou dost keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues.  NASB


Do you know the secret of Gods presence, or the secret pavilion being referred to here? Most folks will blabber about this or that, but then most folks do not read their daily studies and simply are clueless as to what these are. You should know, however if you have been with this study for even just a short time.

The spiritual life is proprietary, and is available only to believers in Jesus Christ.

Spiritual maturity is proprietary, and is available only to believers who advance in their spiritual life to spiritual maturity.

The function of the spiritual life is proprietary, and is available only to believers who are in fellowship.

But what was the subject of the previous verse? Blessings that have been set up, pre-assembled, stored up for the believers use.

And where are these blessings found?

They are found and available to the believer who is in the secret place of God, namely in fellowship, and advancing to spiritual maturity.

Fellowship is acquired when you confess your sins. When you commit a sin, then you are immediately out of fellowship and must confess again, in order to get back into fellowship.

Fellowship is the environment, or the secret place, in which the spiritual life functions. It is the pavilion, or the environment wherein you stand, positionally, not literally, in front of God.

The secret place is the spiritual life of the advancing believer.

Secret means information that belongs to only those to whom it is revealed. Doctrine is revealed to believers who are in fellowship. The spiritual environment is the only place where the benefits and resources of the spiritual life function.

To unbelievers, all things of a spiritual nature are foolishness.

To believers who are continually out of fellowship, as a matter of the pattern of their life, then most things are foolishness or simply uninteresting.

The only way to access that which is hidden, to discover that which is secret, is to enter into the spiritual environment which we call fellowship, and then study and learn, and thus gain an understanding of Gods wisdom.

The pride of men, the strife of tongues, are broad references to sin which prevents access to these secret places and the substance which is unique to the spiritual life.
