To be empowered in the Spirit is to become sensitive to spiritual things. There is another whole realm, the spirit realm. Although we can't see it, measure it (by conventional means) or weigh it, it is real nonetheless.
John 6:60 "Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, This is a hard saying; who can understand it?'" NKJV
What did the disciples hear that was so hard to understand?
John 6:53-58 "Then Yeshua said to them, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven - not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.'" NKJV
Yeshua called the disciples out on this, saying ...
John 6:61-63 "He said to them, 'Does this offend you? What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.'" NKJV
We need the reality of the Spirit for life itself, as there is nothing profitable in the flesh.
