John: 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.
John: 14:26= But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (No One Can Teach You Like The Holy Spirit) Read Gal 1:12.
John: 14:17= Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
1 John: 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. This scripture can easily be taken out of context, because some people will think there is no need for going to Church and no need to have a Pastor; but don’t get it twisted, John was addressing some issues that some Christians were having with false teachers and people with a antichrist spirit trying to seduce God’s people; and John was basically saying, because you have the Spirit of God in you, you have that inner witness to always know the truth and you don’t have to be deceived by anyone because the Holy Spirit of God is your primary teacher like John 14:17 says.
God made it clear in Jeremiah 3:15 when he said I will give you pastors according to my heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding, but since we have the Holy Spirit on the inside of us now, He will always give us the final confirmation anytime we are taught anything concerning the Word of God; and sometimes you will hear things taught that the Holy Spirit has already showed you that will end up being confirmation. And in the Body of Christ we all should be able to learn from each other, as Proverb 27:17 says, iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another; Keeping in mind the Holy Spirit will give the final confirmation.
In Acts 2:17 Peter confirmed on the day that the Comforter, the Holy Spirit came what the Prophet Joel prophesied had come to pass= and it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
If anyone because of a lack of studying the Scriptures ever say to you that the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues was only for the Apostles and passed away with them; simple refer them to Mark 16:17 and Acts 10:44-46
Whenever a Christian hears the Word of God being taught and they hear something they didn’t know yet, Holy Spirit will bring back remembrance certain scriptures that coincide with what they just heard, based on what you have studied in God’s Word (we have to give the Holy Spirit something to work with); and if they are not sure what they just heard is right, and they are not getting any confirmation from Holy Spirit, that indicates you need to search the scriptures on that very thing you heard; and as a Christian does that, the Holy Spirit will began to give them the understanding; two scriptures that relates to this, are Acts 17:10-11 and 2Tim 2:15. Now in 2Tim 2:15, it says to study to show yourself approved unto to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. God likes for His sons and daughters to work and earn, He teaches us good work ethics; notice the Scripture of 2Tim 2:15 says (workman) in the Greek that word workman means laborer; the Word of God even teaches us in the book of James that faith without works is dead being alone; and in the book of Hebrews it teaches us that without faith it’s impossible to please Him, which also indicates without working, it’s impossible to please Him, because faith also= work. Jesus our greatest example taught us work, He learned and studied, and as a result He grew, refer to LK 2:46-52. In Acts 17:10-11 it talks about how the people of Berea were more noble than those of Thessalonica in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Notice how they searched the scriptures for themselves; they didn’t just take someone Word for it, and that’s how we must be in the Body of Christ, we must study the Word for ourselves as we learn from each other, as Holy Spirit gives the final confirmation to our hearts! Brother Paul said in Galatian 1:12, for I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Brother David said in Psalm 119:99, I have more understanding than all my teachers for your testimonies are my mediation, so understand its fair gain for everyone, it depends on how much you want it baby! One last important thing I want to add is an old saying in church, which is, we should try the spirit by the Spirit of God, which is true; however in addition to that, I like to add, that when we try or test a spirit, we test it with the Word of God, because anytime God gives anyone a revelation of His Word, it must be in line with His Word, because 1Corn 14:33 says, God is not the author of confusion, but of peace in all the churches of the saints; because the icing on the cake, is to be able to say, here it is in scripture, concerning what God has shown you! 1John 4:1says, Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone into the world.
