Job spoke of it as “a

is not intellect for it is beyond and above it in power and
comprehension. It is intuition of the Spirit, or the intuitive faculty.
It is the highest of man-the real-man true self which must come forth,
be born again, for it was created in us, or rather is the only real
creation. We must break the burr that seems to encase intuition; burst
our bonds and be free.
How shall we gain freedom? It is very
easy if we only persist. It is only to speak words. “Let us take with
us words and return unto our God.” They must be holy, true words, or
words of truth about God and self, and all creation.
