The Parable Of The Kite, The Pilot, And The Wind

“The kingdom of heaven is like the kite, the pilot and the wind. The kite lies on the ground. It cannot fly by itself. The pilot takes the kite and flies it. It flies but not very high, because there is no wind. Then, the wind blows. Now, the kite flies higher and higher. The higher the kite flies, the less effort needed to control it. At some point, control is no longer needed because everything comes into rest.”

“The kite is our spirit and the ground is our soul. The pilot is the Word of God and the wind is the Spirit of God. Our spirit is in our soul. Our spirit cannot be free from our soul without the Word of God, because only the Word of God will separate our spirit from our soul (Hebrews 4:12). Therefore, we need to meditate on the Word of God day and night. After our spirit is separated from our soul, we need the Spirit of God to bring us to God’s presence in heaven. The Word of God detaches our spirit from our soul whereas the Spirit of God takes our spirit to heaven and joins it to God. Therefore, we need to always be filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). The closer our spirit is to heaven, the less effort we need to give to control it. At some point, the Spirit of God will take over the control of our spirit. We will enter into His rest (Hebrews 4:10).”

“When we are new with God, we are like the kite. Like the kite that cannot fly by itself, we cannot experience God by ourselves. We need people to help us experience Him. We need somebody to lay hand on us or we need to be among the church to experience God. When we have grown in our spiritual life, we are like the pilot. Like the pilot who can fly the kite by himself, we can experience God by ourselves, because we  have known how to get connected with God directly. We do not need anybody to lay hand on us nor do we need to be among the church to experience God. We can experience God ourselves anywhere and anytime. When we have become spiritually mature and become like God, we are like the wind. Like the wind that can help the pilot fly the kite higher or make the kite fly by itself, we can help people who have grown in their spiritual life experience God more and even give the experience of God to the people who are new with God or do not know God at all.”
