The bible without the Holy Spirit is another story book. The words of Solomon without an encounter the Spirit of Truth is another wise and love quotes.
The book of Judges, Kings and Chronicles without the inspiration of God is another book of war strategies.
Therefore, the role of the Holy Spirit in studying the Bible and accessing the things of God can never be overemphasized.
When Jesus was about to conclude His earthly ministry, He said something profound that is not meant only for His disciples but for everyone who will later believe in Him because that statement is prophetic in nature. He said “…when He, the Spirit of Truth has come, He will guide (which is interpreted in Hebrew as hodēgeō which means to teach, lead you into all truth)…He will not speak of His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak”.
This literally means the Holy Spirit is the only Regent Jesus presented to us aside those who are entrusted with the gift of the ministry who are meant to open up the followers of Christ into fellowship with the Spirit of Truth…Holy Spirit. in other words, He is the only one that’s meant to continue the ministry of Jesus on earth as a Spirit living in those who believe in Him.
On this basis, anyone who studies the Bible without the Holy Spirit reads to his own detriment. It’s time to engage the Person of the Holy Spirit in interpreting the Bible and discerning the things of God because there are heresies from the pit of hell.
What then is the Bible?
It’s the Word of God that’s hidden in vocabularies. It’s the message of God to every generation. It is God’s mind written in papers. It’s the Spirit of God in vocabularies. So, it requires the Spirit of God to interpret the Word of God. A carnal mind isn’t qualified to read the Bible because it’s supposed to be spiritually discerned by God’s Spirit.
To conclude this series, I urge you all to give Priority to the Holy Spirit. Spend time with Him for a better understanding of the Man, Jesus. Google, Wikipedia and other search engine websites are managed by people and most likely ignorant of the Truth.
God bless you.
Happy Sunday…I celebrate and love you permanently.
