The Spirit Of Truth. The Counsellor

The Spirit Of Truth. The Counsellor

Acts_1-8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts_1-8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

John 14:16-17, NIV

I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth.

Jesus described the Holy Spirit as “Another.” The Greek word actually means “another who is exactly the same.” So although the Holy Spirit is a distinct person, He is exactly the same as Jesus, but without the physical body. He has been described as Jesus without skin. Or, like an FBI agent, He is Jesus undercover.

Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

We know that Jesus is in heaven. As the first martyr, Stephen, was being stoned to death, he looked up and saw heaven open and Jesus standing at God’s right hand, preparing to welcome him home! (Acts 7:56)

Genesis_28-15-1: And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of

Genesis_28-15-1: And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of

But that doesn’t mean Jesus has left us to stumble through the darkness of the future on our own. He promised His disciples that when He went to heaven, He would ask His Father to send down to earth “Another.” One Who would have His same Mind, Will, Emotions, and Intellect. Jesus called Him the Counsellor (John 14:16), because He is readily available to give us wisdom for our decisions, direction for our future, insight into our problems, and management for our responsibilities.

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 16:13)

One of the
things you must do throughout this year is to yield to the Holy Spirit and
follow His guidance and counsel in all your dealings. No other personality in
this life is worth following but the Holy Spirit. He’s the greatest friend and
teacher you could ever know; he’s the One called alongside to go with you, and
to be with you and in you! He’s the One who guides you into all truth and
brings His Word to your remembrance.

Following
the Holy Spirit means yielding yourself to Him through the Word of God. You
cannot follow the Holy Spirit except you’re yielded to God’s Word; doing what
He says. This will reflect the beauty of God in you and help you live a more
excellent life. You’ll find yourself making the best decisions and the right
choices always. You’ll do the right thing the first time, be at the right place
at the right time and live an inspiring life.

How
important it is to be led by the Holy Spirit of God in all your affairs! No one
but Him can give you the true counsel and guidance in life. So be sure to yield
to Him with all your heart. Isaiah 30:21 says “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying. This is the way,
walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”

Also, He said through the Psalmist in Psalm 32:8, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I
will guide thee with my eye”.
This is the ministry of the Holy Spirit in
your life, take advantage of it today and you’ll never lose your way.

CONFESSION

I YIELD MYSELF TO YOU
PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT TO BE LED, INSTRUCTED AND DIRECTED IN ALL MY DEALINGS
TODAY, AND THROUGHOUT MY LIFE TIME! AND ALSO AS I DO THIS, MY ENTIRE LIFE IS
TRANSFORMED FROM GLORY TO GLORY, IN JESUS CHRIST MIGHTY NAME. AMEN!
