I Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
One of the most outstanding truths concerning the new creation has to do with who has come to be his personal tutor to instruct him in all the affairs of life. The prophet-king David prophesied about the glorious inheritance of the new creation and declared it out loud that it is the LORD the portion of His inheritance.
Of all the numerous and wonderful things the Holy Spirit does in our lives, I have come to believe and be fully convinced that it is his ministry as teacher that stands at the core of His function. I have made this the subject of many my meditations on the goodness of God; see how much he loves me……….so much that He gives me of Himself as my personal tutor! Hallelujah.
Scripture declares a certain Truth concerning the child of God. The Word says that eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, neither has it entered into the heart of men the things that God has ordained for them that love Him. Scripture says that we- them that love God and are known of Him- get to know of these deep things of God freely by the Holy Spirit who lives in us. Hallelujah! I Corinthians 8:3; 2:9-13
Beloved, it is the solemn and sovereign responsibility of the Holy Spirit to bring us into a knowing of all things that are rightfully ours in Christ! All of the deep things of Papa God have been made accessible to us. All of the then hidden things of His predeterminate counsel has become unveiled and flooded with light before our very eyes. This is so, that we might come to be fully constituted with the Truth! It is the Truth as it is ministered to a man by the agency of the Holy Spirit that builds unto maturity and perfection. Acts 20:32 Ephesians 4:13
Our building up in Christ is so much hinged to this glorious ministry of the Holy Spirit. For all of us who seek to live up to the fullness of our calling in Christ, we must learn to receive from the Holy Spirit revelation…………the revelation of Deity as it is in Christ! We must awaken fully to the Spirit of truth who lives in us.
The psalmist said that it is in His Light that we get to see light. Psalms 36:9 In the light of His Word………in the reality of His Life, we see light. And as we see, we speak in agreement with fullness of conviction; and as we speak, His mighty effective working in us wroughts all manner of wonder and beauty! II Corinthians 3:18We become what it is we have seen even the expression of His divine life and nature. Hallelujah! It is as we behold!
II Corinthians 4:6. It is God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, who has shined in our hearts bringing to us the light of the knowledge of God revealed in the face of Jesus Christ. It is God, Beloved, resident in your heart! It is He who shines light that you may see light and be transformed as you embrace Truth. Beloved, it is God who shines the light of the knowledge of His word in you. To what end?
To the end that you may be built up, rooted and grounded in the Truth; and be enabled to function in the higher dimensions of the life of God. Romans 8:29 I Timothy 2:4. John 17:3
This Anointing that abides in us is so that we can be all that the Father says we are. Have you awakened to Him? Have you embraced His ministry? Do you reckon in your life his tutelage………… Beloved, you must!
Of all the schools that seek to teach us wisdom……….of all the teachers that seek to make us see philosophy, there is no school and no teacher like the Holy Spirit.
The Apostle Paul knew this.
Peter knew this very well.
John could not help himself much in reminding us all the time………”have you come to the awareness of the Teacher in your life?” I John 2:20, 27
The Church must awaken fully to Him, much so to His teaching ministry in our lives.
Stephen knew this. Acts 6; 5-10.
It is the greatest privilege to be groomed in all the counsel and wisdom of God by the Holy Spirit Himself. To be taken up by His hands and taught to deal wisely with all affairs of life; to be transformed as living stones into His perfect image……….Hallelujah!
Thank you Holy Spirit, You are too much!
Beloved, having come to see the importance of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives, what ought to be our attitude towards him?
Beloved, do you now see how yielded you must be to the influence of the Holy Spirit every day in your life?
It is my prayer that you find yourself awakened much more to this wonderful teacher you have and that you learn to hear from Him for yourself………
I believe that as you do so, the reality of God’s sovereign Word will come alive in your spirit. You will come to understand the words of Jesus when He spoke in John 16:13-15:
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 show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.
Beloved, choose to yield yourself today to His influence. Recognize and embrace His teaching ministry in your life today. There is great need for the Word of God to come alive in you and become flesh in this physical dimension. To meet this demand with the requisite supply, you must awaken to the tutelage of the Holy Spirit!
All praise to God as you awaken to the tutelage of the Holy Spirit!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for this wonderful gift in the person of the Holy Spirit you have given to me. Father, you have made Him my personal tutor and I have come to understand why. I give myself fully to His ministry in my life as my teacher; to bring me into the fullness of your word. Thank you Mighty God, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
