He Is A Teacher
The Spirit Of The Lord
34: He Is A Teacher
For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” Luke 12:12
So then, we do not speak in words taught by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, as we explain spiritual truths to those who have the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:13
The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you. John 14:26
The Holy Spirit is primarily a teacher and a miracle worker just like Jesus. He took over from Jesus and is doing exactly what Jesus did when He was on earth. The only difference is that we cannot see Him physically. Now that Jesus is in heaven, on His throne beside God the father, His Spirit is the perfect companion and comforter that we need.
Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.” John 16:16
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:18
We are not alone and Jesus did not leave us as orphans, His Spirit is in us and with us, teaching us and guiding us into all truth. If we are humble and do not presume or assume that we already know it all or that our denomination knows it all, He will enlighten us. We must open up our hearts to allow Him teach us. Pride is a great turn off to Him so the proud cannot know the truth or the fullness of truth.
If we claim to know more than God, we have shut off His Holy Spirit and are at risk of attracting the spirit of delusion. Those who oppose God and insult God attract lies unto themselves. God will give them what they like because they actually prefer error, darkness and lies.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12
Brethren, truth is available to all if we are willing. If we want to climb to the mountaintop of Christian Maturity and glory, it is possible. Our blessed teacher is with us and in us longing to take us further and deeper into Him. He is our great mountain top. The more we press deeper into Him, the more He will propel us into the mountaintop of glory where we experience His living water on a constant basis.
May the flesh give way to our blessed teacher, the Holy Spirit always. May we grow in Him and rest in Him. May we touch Him, taste Him, feel Him and see His face here on earth even as we wait for Heaven – our eternal home.
