LED BY THE SPIRIT (2)

“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. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you”. JOHN 16:13-15.

In the last days of our Lord Jesus on earth, He introduced the Holy Spirit to the disciples. He was intimating them to the role, advent and person of the Spirit. One of those was John 16:13-15. There, He made some striking remarks about the Holy Spirit.
Mentioned to us is that the Spirit of truth would guide us into all Truth. You see, the Spirit of God is the Spirit of truth, He’s the Spirit of reality. The knowledge of God, and access to spiritual realities are only obtainable in the Spirit. It’s only through the Holy Spirit divine knowledge can come to us.
1 Cor. 2:10- “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God”. This simply means without the Holy Spirit, we would be ignorant of what God wants us to know. The only thing that can counteract ignorance is truth. Ignorance will always and continue to prevail when the knowledge of the truth is absent, therefore, God gave His Spirit, the Spirit of truth, to the christian to void him of ignorance and bring him into the truth.
The Truth is the compendium of all the knowledge of God, the fullness of all God is, God does and God knows. And that is Jesus Christ.
Scriptures says in Him, (Christ), dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. {Col. 2:9}. Every virtue, authority, wisdom, knowledge and administration in God is epitomized in Christ, the Truth {Col.1:19, John 14:6}. The Holy Spirit therefore leads us into all the fullness of God, all of the knowledge of God, all of the realities of God. Isn’t that a blessed word there?!
We therefore can’t reach God, can’t access His truths for our lives, if we aren’t led by the Spirit. He guides us into all Truth. Beloved, you’ll continue to wallow in ignorance and grope in darkness as a believer if you’re not subjected to the guidance of the Spirit of Truth. The Holy Spirit will perpetually lead us to follow God’s will and to know God’s heart. We would never be default of divine realities if we are led.
Our theme verse went further in telling us that the Holy Spirit will not speak of Himself, but only what He receives, will He speak. Isn’t that amazing? The Holy Ghost would not testify of anything else, other than the truths He has received of Christ for us. The Spirit would lead us into knowing God, into His will, His voice, His presence, His knowledge, His fullness!
We can be guided rightly, led into truths, led into the blessed knowledge of God for our lives if we would yield to the promptings of the Spirit.
Yield to the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, be guided into truths!
Shalom!
