“The Spirit of Truth”
“But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify Me because it is from Me that He will receive what He will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is Mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from Me what He will make known to you.” John 16:13-15
These verses of Scripture were the words of the Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples, concerning their ministry, which would take place after His death and resurrection. Jesus promised that they would receive the Holy Spirit, who would be their COMPANION, ADVOCATE, COMFORTER, TEACHER and GUIDE.
He would give them ALL they needed to know about Jesus and His work. He will NOT speak on His own accord, but will speak ONLY what He hears from Father God. God would tell the Spirit what to TEACH the disciples about His Son and His mission. It would give them spiritual insight into what was about to come: the death, and resurrection of Jesus, and the truth of His return.
Jesus being the image of the Invisible God, received ALL that belongs to the Father. The Spirit of Truth enlightened the disciples to the person and work of the Only Begotten Son of the Living God. The Spirit worked in the disciples’ minds so they could be able to UNDERSTAND and TEACH about the Son and His mission.
The Spirit of Truth is given to the TRUE BELIEVERS today, as their COMPANION, ADVOCATE, COMFORTER, TEACHER and GUIDE. And like Jesus’ disciples, we are to ALLOW the Holy Spirit of Truth, access to our minds by being SUBMISSIVE to Him, and allowing Him to TEACH us what we need to KNOW about the Lord Jesus Christ, and then we should TEACH others what we have received from The Spirit of Truth. We should be mentors to those who are SEEKING the TRUTH.
You cannot take someone to a place where you have not been. So open up your HEARTS and MINDS to the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, and let Him LEAD you to ALL the TRUTH of the Lord Jesus Christ, and then become the TEACHER to those who are HUNGERING for the Word.
If you are one of those who are SEEKING and HUNGERING for the TRUTH, and have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, you NOW have the opportunity to LEARN the TRUTH of the Word and its impact on your life and eternity, by coming to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART and CONFESSING your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and allow the SPIRIT of TRUTH access to your HEART and MIND, and become a LEARNER and TEACHER of the Word. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
