The Bible tells us about the reality of both the physical world, which is the natural habitat of human beings, and a spirit world that is ruled and controlled by the Almighty God. Although God created mankind and granted us access to the spiritual realm for the purpose of fellowshipping with Him, we lost that access when Adam and Eve sinned (John 4:24, Genesis 3:8). However, the moment a person becomes born again, that access to the realm of the spirit is immediately restored. Unconverted souls remain permanently disconnected from the heavenly realm.
The spiritual world is very much as real as the physical world, but only those who have access to it can see the sights, hear the sound and even participate in the activities of heaven
Living in the Spirit requires faith. Just as the eye produces conviction about the reality of objects in the physical world, so does the faith produce the same conviction about things in the realm of the spirit, which are invisible to the natural eye. Faith manifests itself by producing the assurance that what we hope for will happen.
