#5135 – The Spirit of Truth

Good morning people who walk with the Holy Spirit who knows the Father’s heart.

John 14:16-17 NIV 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.”

The Holy Spirit is our advocate, and He fights on our behalf from the winning position of absolute truth. He is called the Spirit of truth, this is who He is.

I love one of the statements I see when I look at this word ‘truth’ in the Greek. It says: ‘what is true in any matter under consideration.’

The Holy Spirit – the Spirit of truth – lives in us as sons and daughters of God. The Holy Spirit knows the mind of God the Father, and from this eternal omniscient position, the Spirit wants to lead us into all truth in every situation; in every matter under consideration.

I think Paul writes it most clearly in the book of Corinthians. So please slowly meditate on the following truth about the Holy Spirit who lives in you; the Spirit of truth.

1 Corinthians 2:9-16 NIV However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him— these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

The Holy Spirit reveals the mind of Christ from the heart of the Father.
