There are certain things that will help us as we read such types of literature. Now, the apostle of love, John, warns of antichrists and outlines safeguards against error in 1 John, 2:18 through 27. Babies are messes. The ministry of the Holy Spirit was demonstrated as Jesus healed the dumb demoniac. ( Log Out /  SAY: These words from the Bible promise that the Holy Spirit will live in us. I have often said, some of you in home Bible classes, that Laplace, the French astronomer once said, “I turned my instruments toward heaven and I’ve looked and I’ve found no evidence of God.” And President Sawyer said, after he heard the remark, “He might just as well have swept his kitchen and made the remark, because his instruments were totally incapable of discovering God.” God’s wisdom is divine wisdom. The seven truths are not meant to suggest Paul aligns his teaching with the seven spirits of God. What is the object? And if you don’t have a Bible dictionary, you should have some Bible dictionary like, “The New Bible Dictionary.” It’s a good one to have. Why is that? Those are the things that are the milk of the word. There are, perhaps, some methods that we can learn that will be some help to us but ultimately, to study the Bible and to get something out of it is the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart of a believer. It’s my diagram. “Another” means one of the same caliber, the same … That means that a baby cannot be spiritual. We talked about that. The Holy Spirit is called the Holy Spirit. We need to be clear about three basic truths concerning the Holy Spirit, all of which are emphasised by the apostle John in this letter: The Holy Spirit is a Person.

The Corinthians couldn’t take meat; they could only take milk. Dr. S. Lewis Johnson provides a thorough exposition of how the Holy Spirit guides the saints in learning and knowing God's truth and the Scriptures. He says that there are first of all natural men.

So any kind of teaching that glorifies a man, any kind of teaching that glorifies a movement, any kind of teaching that glorifies even the Holy Spirit is contrary to the Holy Spirit, for he glorifies Christ. We cannot understand God’s wisdom from the eye, the ear, the nose, the mouth, the hand. Now, in the 13th verse, our Lord tells us directly what this teaching is. As the Holy Spirit leads us, we grow and start to bear fruit! Most people have been led to believe that self-doubt, self-condemnation, feelings of unworthiness, and conviction for individual sins are the work of the Holy Spirit. I may be looking at you and saying “My, what a strange looking character you are.” And you may be looking at me and saying “what a strange remark for you to make.” No one knows what we think except, we ourselves.

This is the Holy Spirit's especial line of teaching with the believer, as with the unbeliever, Jesus Christ. But, he would guide us within the sphere of the whole of the truth. It’s the exterior test of the inner light. And do you remember that there was an unnamed servant that he commissioned to go after Isaac’s bride. Now, I’m sure the Corinthians would say, “But, Paul, we don’t understand everything.” Man doesn’t understand everything. Now, if the word of God is the objective criterion of the truth of Scripture; the Holy Spirit, then, is the subjective criterion. Can you clearly express the specific ways you’ve experienced the Holy Spirit’s teaching ministry? What is taught may be not only knowledge, opinions, or facts but also artistic and technical skills, all of which are to be systematically and thoroughly acquired by the learner through the activity of a teacher.”6.

Lord Jesus, You said that when the Holy Spirit came, He would teach me all things I need to know. If you are born again, you have the Holy Spirit — However, this is simply not the case.

That’s the third class of man. Paul goes on to say, “For,” verse 2 “I have fed you with milk, and not with meat; for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.” [After a time has passed] “For ye are still carnal; [but he uses a different word. He glorifies the work of God’s Son, in order to attract me to the Savior, Jesus Christ. If we are listening, the Holy Spirit is teaching us constantly. And so, we speak of it as the baptizing ministry of the Spirit.

Now, that’s the work of the Holy Spirit today; that’s precisely what he does. What’s the remedy of the carnal, weak man, the babe in Christ? Because of the Holy Spirit, we can have peace knowing that we have faithfully presented God’s Word and it is up to the Spirit of Truth to convince people of it.

Now, tonight, we are going to study his teaching ministry; the ministry by which he imparts to us spiritual understanding. Well, the simple little truths about Jesus Christ and his death for us? 1. Why is it that we may listen to a great teacher of the Bible and he will tell us a certain text means one thing and then a few weeks later we listen to another great teacher of the word of God, and he will tell us the same text means something else? The Holy Spirit doesn’t just give us comfort; He can do much more in our lives, including teaching us and testifying to us of Jesus. Is that unclear? Now, you won’t find what a centurion is by going down and asking the police department here. Now, I didn’t mean to confuse you by that, but the Bible does contain syllogisms; fortunately, not so much of them. The Holy Spirit brings to remembrance the words of Christ.

If you’re seeking the best Teacher in the world, look no further! What truth was future from the time of the Upper Room Discourse? The Christian is dependent on the ministry of the Spirit from the time of his regeneration until his glorification. It is because, as a rule, we are not rightly related to the Holy Spirit. Now, I think that means that if we go to the Bible, we have the perfect right to expect that the Holy Spirit should reveal to us fresh truth. — John 14:26 As Jesus continued teaching the disciples about the various roles the Holy Spirit … And he will show you things to come.”. If you were to talk to people who are used to the little clichés that we use in theological seminaries and Bible schools and colleges, and you were to hear someone ask the question, “What’s the chapter on the Holy Spirit?” Everybody would answer, “Well, the chapter on the Holy Spirit is Romans, chapter 8.” That’s the great chapter in which we have more taught about the Spirit than in any other place of the New Testament, except this Upper Room Discourse. Let me just read these verses quickly. The five senses are insufficient. Now, what is the spiritual man? The Holy Spirit is a Divine Person who is one with God the Father and God the Son in the Holy Trinity. Because of the Holy Spirit within us, we are never alone. They won’t know. Well, only the Spirit of God. Now, what does Paul say about the Spirit? Verse 15 “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” That’s the second kind of man; he’s the spiritual man. Now, when I go to the Bible, I expect the Holy Spirit to reveal to me fresh aspects of the truth of God. He says, “I have many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now.” The many things that Jesus has to say unto them are things that are found for us in the remainder of the New Testament. And at the same time, we also listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit who takes the word of God and makes it vital and real to us. And we expect them to do foolish things. Life … In other words, the things of the spirit of God may be there, in plain view before his eyes, but he doesn’t understand them. When we do, good characteristics flow out of us.

Jesus told His disciples that when the Holy Spirit came, He would teach them, and today the Holy Spirit has been sent to teach you. And I want you to notice first of all that our Lord alludes to the disciple’s limitation in the 12th verse. Then they fly back in. Now, after this brief introduction, I want you to turn with me to the first part of our study, which is the prophetical passage, the teacher and the teaching promised. Well, the spiritual man is the man who has the Holy Spirit and who has a measure of maturity. He also covers the ministries of the Holy Spirit and how they relate to teaching. But, the basic meaning of the text, the spiritual meaning of it, he cannot understand. Now, there’s another thing about a babe. They’re messes. Now, of course, there is also a sense in which the spirit guides the “whole church.” And we should, therefore, not expect all of the revelation of the Holy Spirit on the word, his illuminating ministry, to be complete at any particular time throughout the Christian age. But, a retarded child is an unnatural thing. What we see in the Bible depends, ultimately, upon what we are, by God’s grace through the work of the Spirit. Well, he needs to be born again.

And I’m only going to point to a couple of things in 1 John, chapter 2. Well, I think it is very simply expressed right there, isn’t it? The Holy Spirit Is a Helper Who Teaches and Reminds. Now, I know that because in chapter 2, verse 6, it says: “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect.” They are mature. That is, that we should understand all the truth.

He assures us that Christ really exists. A babe in Christ may be spiritually minded, but he cannot be spiritual because that requires growth. Now, all teaching is subject to the Spirit’s sovereign pleasure. A babe cannot be a spiritual man for he says: “I could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.” He couldn’t say that if a babe could be spiritual. They are envy, striving, there are divisions, they are carnal and they walk as men. Now, I should expect every now and then I should come up with something fresh. That’s bad. We don’t belong to the Lord. He is not just an influence. Now, there are two ways in which he guides us: of course he guides us individually. There are many things that may help us. It is really the baptizing ministry of Jesus Christ. Now, by using that as an illustration, who can know the things of God? In other words, there is no aspect of the truth that is forbidden to us, but that the Holy Spirit will guide us within it. When he, “the spirit of truth is come; he will guide you into all truth.” He is referring about to this present age; when he the spirit of truth is come, for, remember, he came on the Day of Pentecost. That’s why Paul said, “don’t appoint a novice an elder.” Don’t do that. And because he can only be understood by divine revelation, no one, no scientist can tell us truths of God, except indirectly, as he has been pleased to reveal himself in his creation. In other words, if you cannot find in the Bible justification for a Christian experience or an experience, then you should doubt that it is a Christian experience. Now, the church is wrestling with these things. We are familiar, I hope, with this passage. But, you do not at the present time have the power to carry them out. So, “He shall glorify me.” Now, that’s the prophetical passage in which Jesus tells us that a teacher is promised who will guide us “within all truth.”. He doesn’t really have a name. But, the little child really understands color better because he not only may comprehend something of its principles, but he has “seen” it.

The Role of the Holy Spirit in Teaching the Bible. The Holy Spirit is a Person. That servant is never given a name in that 24th chapter of Genesis, because, you see, he is an illustration of the unnamed person of the Trinity. And you’ve probably had that same experience too. To really truly interpret the word, there must be the human application of interpretation of the text, but there has to be from the divine standpoint, the illumination of the Holy Spirit if we are to understand the word of God. It’s impossible to guide if you don’t get any cooperation. He’s the unnamed servant of God. And finally, his ministry of filling we will discuss. This Greek word odega describes the guiding ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives. So we must know the meaning of historical terms. “And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.”. Verse 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.” So, the anointing. Men interpret the bible. He is our Instructor, and we are the apprentices. In other words, by the Spirit. Can’t believe it. Now, as you can see, what Paul is saying is simply this, you may think because I have downgraded human wisdom that in Christianity we do not think very much of wisdom. Discipleship is the goal of the teaching ministry of the church. And then, we are interested in the interpretations that other men have made: Ecclesiastical interpretation. The Teaching Ministry of the Holy Spirit “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?

That is, I am interested in what the Christian church has thought about the Bible down through the years. It is not understood through the human senses. Now, I want you to notice that this carnal man is a Christian. If we do not understand His ministry and how He operates in our lives, we could find ourselves believing a fable.

And further, Paul has said, “God’s wisdom is not understood as man’s wisdom is. 0 The Ministry Of The Holy Spirit HARVESTIME INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE This course is part of the Harvestime International Institute, a program designed to equip believers for effective spiritual harvest. As you prepare to teach this week’s session, “The Holy Spirit Came ” (Acts 2:1-42), you might find this brief primer on the personality and ministry of the Holy Spirit helpful. I would think, also, that this means that if we are to be guided into the truth, we are to understand that we must cooperate with the Holy Spirit. And then, of course, the second thing is that, as we shall see, the Spirit’s teaching is illumination is contingent upon our spiritual condition. It’s something of a title. Now, to understand the Bible, to understand the word of God, it is necessary for us to not only be subject to the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit, but we have to engage in interpretation. How do you internalize and put into practice the things that the Holy Spirit has taught you through personal study or life experience. It is the thing by which we test everything in the claims of men and the claims of movements.
