“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 show you things to come.
14 He shall glorify Me (JESUS): for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you.
15 All things that the Father has are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine, and shall show it unto you.” John 16:13-15
If ‘He’ does not glorify Jesus, Who Jesus is and what Jesus has done, which was at the time of this writing soon “to come” for the Crucifixion of Christ had not yet occurred, ‘He’ is another spirit glorifying another Jesus and will lead you into a corrupted ‘truth’.
The Lord has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit and they will never contradict one another. We must study the Word to show thyself approved and the Spirit of God will bear witness to our spirit.
It is this Truth, the revelation of Jesus Christ and Him crucified that sets man free.
“And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
The revelation in the heart of man of Who Jesus is and what He has done can only be done by the Spirit of God bearing witness to our spirit, THIS revelation is the Rock of which the Church is built…the Truth of which sets man free.
“15 He (JESUS) said unto them, But Whom say you that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are You, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but My Father which is in Heaven.
18 And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will buildMy Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:15-18
Upon this revelation of Jesus Christ, we know that we are a Child of God because the Holy Spirit will bear witness to our spirit…and He doesn’t stop. The Holy Spirit will continue this mighty work in the heart of man as we continue looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God (Hebrews 12:2).
Jesus Christ and Him crucified…be determined to know nothing else among. This Truth will set you free.
