Spirit of Truth guides us...

>> Thursday, May 17, 2012

Joh 16:13 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.

The Spirit of Truth has come! The Holy Spirit resides in us from the moment of our redemption! Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Amen!!

He will guide us into ALL truth...what does it take for you to be guided? We must follow. Many of us are so busy we are doing the leading or being sidetracked with the distractions of life.  We are out of touch with His guiding so, we go off and do things our own way. We come to realize it is our own way because it lacks TRUTH, amen! We cannot do things that we want to do, and self bless it in Jesus' name and think its TRUTH. We must be guided...so often if we are honest with ourselves...we lead the way.

How is that working for us? Many answer...IT'S NOT! We must be intentional to eliminate those things that we have given priority over and get back &, turn back to God.

But look...the Spirit of Truth never talks about himself...He is ALWAYS....ALWAYS... pointing us to Jesus, the Word, our Heavenly Father, and to be more like Christ! He doesn't go back on His Word, He doesn't contradict the Word. He is teaching us right from wrong according to God's standards. He is encouraging us through the Word to be separate from the world, peculiar, different. It never says to attract the world or bring the world in. The Power of the Gospel is in the simplicity in and of itself. Think about the compromises we make leading God.

But here is yet another amazing point to this verse! The Holy Spirit will show us things to come. He warns us, He prepares us...I don't believe we experience anything God doesn't prepare us for! If we think back, if we have been guided we can see the work...the very fingerprints of God unfolding His plan and letting us in on some of those details. We may not understand or know it to the fullest, but He gives us inclinations. Most of us will never see or understand because we are so preoccupied with distractions, we miss the sweet whisper of the Holy Spirit teaching, preparing or even warning us.

1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
May I say, It is more than going to church for an hour a week. Church is not a relationship with God...Serving is not a relationship with God...Fellowship is not a relationship with God. Spending alone time, intimate quiet time, communing with God, confessing, working out your own salvation with fear and trembling, hungering and thirsting after Him, seeking...most of all ABIDING is where we develop our relationship with God. The Holy Spirit abides in us, no man can teach us the things of God they way God can, we have the anointing because he abides in us and we are told HE teaches us ALL things and is truth and there is no lie! So just as He has taught us we should abide in HIM.

We as a Body of Christ must learn how to depend and be desperate for the Holy Spirit's guide, too many of us follow man...and as we can see as a whole for the Church it isn't working. We must turn back and follow the Holy Spirit...it may take time to learn to hear His prompting...but God promises that without FAITH it is impossible to please HIM and HE is a rewarder to those who diligently seek HIM! By abiding and being guided our serving and fellowship and desire to be in church will come supernaturally...we never want to do the natural thing amen!

May we put all physical things in their proper place...may we prioritize our spiritual necessities above all else...may we understand the function and obedience of God's commissions as He intended them to be.


Remember all your promises and forget all your sins...God doesn't hold them over our heads, the enemy does...we are to examine ourselves and confess to make right with God the errors of our ways and then look to HIM, satan would have you internalize and dwell...this is not of God it takes our focus off of Jesus...our confession and turning from our ways is all God asks and He forgives instantly without hesitation. Walk in freedom as we were made to walk...God is working all things out for good to those who love Him and those He has called, Amen!!!
