The Holy Spirit is NOT Your Bible nor is he your preacher.. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Living God. “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth” That is why many or most people, even preachers they cannot endure, comprehend even the the clear teachings of Scripture because they do not have not the indwelling, the empowering strength of the Holy Spirit. The works of the Holy Spirit Spirit living in us are taught, recorded in the New testament books of Acts through Revelations. The Holy Spirit illuminates Jesus’ Word and is the main cause of His working the Word of God into and through our life.
Ezekiel says, “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them” (Ezekiel 36:26-27).
The same power that was upon Jesus came upon the Church on the Day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit is still assigned to the Church to help us fulfill our commission. Didn’t Jesus say He would abide with us forever!
Jesus stated that it was not He but the Father in Him Who did these works. When He said, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” (Acts 1:8), they knew what He meant!
The Greek word dunamis, translated power, means ability and might. When you receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, you receive the ability of God to do His work in the earth. The Spirit within is for fruit bearing – for your own personal life (Galatians 5:22-23). Jesus talked about this in John 4:14. He called it: “…a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” But the Spirit upon is for service. Jesus talked about this in John 7:38-39. He described it as rivers of living water. The well is for your own life and the rivers flowing out of you are for others.
The traditions and doctrines of men have robbed many believers of this power to be a witness with evidence that Jesus has been raised from the dead. The world is not only supposed to hear words but see proof that Jesus is alive today. All New Christians should be taught to also next not accept Jesus Christ as lord, but also to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit – the endowment of power to live a holy life, and even to reveal Jesus to lost humanity
Without the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our own life, without being filled with the Spirit, we can not understand the things of Christ, nor can we have the things of Christ. All that the Spirit shows us, applies to us for our instruction and comfort, all that He gives us for strengthening and empowerment, and all that He secures and seals to us did all belong to Christ and was given by Him. Christ purchased it all and paid dearly for it and has reason to call it His own. The Spirit came not to erect a new earthly kingdom, but to advance and establish the eternal Kingdom of Jesus Christ . All the Spirit does will be in harmony with what Christ did. He will maintain the same interests and pursue the same design. The Spirit will never do anything in contrast or contradictory to the written or Living Word of God.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. John 16:12-15
Now the Spirit himself is also God’s great gift to all believers who gives gifts now to them as well. “I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions. “In those days, I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, men and women alike.” Joel 2:28
“I baptize with water those who turn from their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is far greater than I am — so much greater that I am not even worthy to be his slave. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Matthew 3:11
The word for Spirit is neuter in Greek but the pronoun “He” which refers to this Spirit is masculine. From this and many other Scriptures it is clear that the Spirit is revealed as having the personality and characteristics of a person. The Spirit is a He and not an it. He experiences joy and sadness, He has intellect and reasoning like people do. He is the Spirit of Faith whose ministry is guiding into truth and He does it in a very personal way. He is not simply a force or a power He is personal with a separate consciousness from the other trinity members of the Godhead. He the Holy Spirit exerts His influence upon our Bor from above, regenerated consciousness, our Soul and spirit now too.. . The Spirit does not drive or compel nor does He force us or carry us. The is a loving hand placed upon us to lead us. We may refuse His leadership (and most people mainly do) and if we would follow Him we must humble ourselves. But if we will allow him to do so ourselves the Spirit will guarantee that we does not miss God’s way and He will secure us in tall ways from sin. John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
It is really absurd that many people, preachers teach about the Holy Spirit and yet they personal seem to know nothing of hi, still do not know him, have never even personal experienced him, His filling, his baptism of the Holy Spirit. Thus they are thus pretenders, imposters, false teachers. The Holy Spirit is certainly not your Bible or your Bible knowledge . . If The Holy Spirit does not leads us today only through the word of God, the Bible, as he still speaks, he has voice that you can learn to hear clearly too. .The leading of the Holy Spirit is also still not limited by what we Know of the scriptures. The holy Spirit will teach you from the Bible and show you what the passage really mans too. Most Christians treat the Bible as if it’s the Holy Spirit that will lead us into all truth, but still we do we test everything against the Word of God the Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. The things of God are not comprehendible unless the Holy Spirit reveals them to us in our lives.
The Divine Spirit is available to each of us when we receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The renewing of your mind does not occur by reading the Bible. It occurs by the holy Spirit renewing your mind by his teaching, input. Instantaneously He reveals both in the truths that are plain and in those that are difficult. He will guide us into the whole body of redemptive revelation. The ministry of the Spirit is to enrich us with the treasures of God’s truth. He enlightens us with God’s truth and enriches us with God’s treasures. There is no limit to how much of the Holy Spirit’s leading help we can have. He stands ready to lead us in all truth as we are ready.
There exists also always between the persons of the Trinity an eternal, relationship of love and fellowship, hormonally respect, honor .
Jesus taught us that the SPIRIT would lead us into all truth. Many Christians will say; ” how can the Spirit lead you into all truth unless you are reading the the Bible and they literally using solely their own their OWN understanding to understand Bible. And many even y think that the Holy Spirit is their own understanding. That’s not the way the Spirit of the Living God works. This is what Jesus said in John Chapter 14 verse 26; “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you ALL things, and bring to your remembrance ALL things that I said to you.” The Same Spirit that worked in Jesus is the SAME Holy Spirit that will work in the children of God. The Same Holy Spirit that spoke through Jesus will speak to and through you if truly you are a true Christian. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Living God does not just teach you things you already know. And they say that; “The Holy Spirit will ONLY speak the things that I already know.” WHAT kind of teacher will only teach you things that you already know? Is that not a BAD teacher? Would you not leave a class if you knew everything in that class already? The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and He will teach really even you NEW things that you have not seen in the Bible an d elsewhere. The Holy Spirit is not just going to bring to your memory things that you already know. He will give you spiritual gift, gift o discernment, and tell you of things to come, like Jesus promised. The Holy Spirit will lead you into ALL truth like Jesus promised. All truth.. God is not dead. The Spirit of the Living God is ALIVE fully now even by his Holy Spirit. The holy Spirit He is alive in those who seek Him, know him. Are you TRULY a child of God led by the Holy Spirit? Or are you still only a dead Christian? Why? .
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. If you reject the Holy Spirit filling, Baptism, control of your life you are still headed towards hell.
Life itself now is too much to bear unless we have the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Luke 4:6 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Mark 3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: Luke 24: 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
“…be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). Learn to Depend on the Holy Spirit… He Will Guide You Into All Truth
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (I Corinthians 2:9-10).
