If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” (John 14:15-21 KJV) John, chapters 14 through 16 is a sermon by Jesus and He speaks of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the personal God present in all believers. Jesus goes on to say: “These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:25-26 KJV) This promise is not only to the disciples but to all believers. The Holy Spirit teaches us about Jesus and helps us remember His teachings. All believers have the Holy Spirit but not everyone allows the Holy Spirit to teach them and lead them to obey God’s Word. Jesus again promises that the Holy Spirit will teach us. “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. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:13-15 KJV) The Holy Spirit is the teacher in the lives of believers. God used men to write His Word and we can believe His Word because the Holy Spirit was with the men guiding and directing them as they wrote. The Bible says this about John: “This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.” (John 21:24 KJV) John was an eye witness to the crucifixion of Jesus. Again, the Bible says this about John. “And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.” (John 19:35 KJV) We can be sure that the Bible is true because the Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of Truth, helped the writers write what God wanted written and many of the writers were eyewitnesses like John. The question is, “What will you do with the truth of God’s Word?”
