John 16 :12-16
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
“A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.”
The Spirit of truth has come. How well do we know and experience his presence? He will guide into all truth; he will tell what is to come; he will bring glory to Christ. We can know the spirit with which we work, the spirits with which we come into contact; are they of God or not? Do they bring glory to self or Christ? Does the truth they proclaim line up with the Word of God? Jesus says the Spirit takes from what is his. We can know His voice, we can know if what we hear is of Christ only if we know the Word of God and then we will not be deceived by another’s words. Be immersed in the Word of God and be filled with the Spirit of God. Then we will know the truth and be set free from deception. It takes many forms, this deception. Unique for each individual. There is one Word and one Holy Spirit. There is one Christ, and one Father. There is one church that is the body of Christ, made up of many members. Let us know and study the Word of God that we not be deceived.
