The Spirit of Thruth
“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting His own ideas; He will be telling you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring Me glory by revealing to you whatever He receives from Me. All that the Father has is Mine; this is what I mean when I say that the Spirit will reveal to you whatever He receives from Me. John 16:13-15”The Importance of seeking truth…
One important aspect of our faith that we must base all our lives on is Seeking the TRUTH. Anything we find to be false, we should throw out regardless of whether or not it might be more popular. Obedience to the truth that has been revealed to us is the key to being led into more truth. The eyes of our Creator seeks those whose heart is perfect toward Him. He is speaking here to an unruly King: 2Ch 16:9 For the eyes of Yahweh run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart [is] perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
Here Yahweh is telling Jeremiah that if He can find ONE PERSON in Jerusalem that really seeks the truth, He will pardon the whole city… Jer. 5:1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be [any] that executes judgment, that seeks the truth; and I will pardon it. Here is our Savior speaking of the importance of knowing truth John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. Elohim (god) [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [Him] in spirit and in truth.The Spirit of YAHWEH is what guides us into all truth…
For, the WORD of YAHWEH is the Truth and One should represent the Truth. (John 14:17; 15:26; 16:13
- 1 Peter 1:22 … “Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart…”
- 2 Cor. 13:5-8 “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Messiah Yeshua is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test? And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. Now we pray to G-d that you will not do anything wrong. Not that people will see that we have stood the test but that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed. For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.
- Isaiah 65:16…Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the God of truth; He who takes an oath in the land will swear by the God of truth. For the past troubles will be forgotten.
Here, THE TRUTH is sent as the Holy Spirit to indwell human being, sent by G-d to live among men to teach, correct all that go wrong in the society for man to seek and draw near his Creator. These are the Messengers the world full of worldly wisdom cannot accept. John 14:6-7 Yeshua answered,
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
John 14:10-14 “Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
Promised “Holy Spirit” John 14:15-21
“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
