We have seen that the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of power. Now let’s explain another Biblical description of the Holy Ghost.
THE HOLY GHOST IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH
JOHN 14:26-“ 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 15:26- “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of TRUTH, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of ME.”
JOHN 16:13- “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.”
God gave the Church a leader which is the Holy Spirit to teach us, and guide us into all truth because a man cannot lead another man because a man is born in sin, and shaped in iniquity, and came into the world speaking lies.
The way we are born was not God’s way of reproduction, it came as a result of Eve disbelieving God’s Word by doing what the serpent told her was right which God had forbidden her to do. Death struck the human race because Adam and Eve did what God told them not to do. That is why the way we are born is corrupt because it is not God’s way of reproduction.
Anything that comes in any way other than God’s provided way is corrupt, and it will produce nothing but death.
So God being rich in mercy provided a way by which man could be saved from being eternally separated from God, which is through His own Blood He shed for us on Calvary. But for us to have eternal life we must be born again, and the new birth is God’s life dwelling in a person in the form of the Holy Ghost.
This Holy Ghost now dwelling in a man teaches a person to obey God, and believe His Word. A Holy Ghost filled person believes every Word of God.
If you don’t believe all of God’s Word, you are no better than the Pharisees because they did not believe God’s Word in its fullness, they tried to mix It (God’s Word) with their traditions and it brought forth death. That is why Jesus Christ told them that their father was the devil, because they tried to mix God’s Word with their traditions, the very same thing people are doing today. You will never mix God’s Word with creeds and dogmas, and then enter the kingdom of God.
Matthew 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
To exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees is to believe God’s Word not because you have to, from a mental conception believe but you believe because the Word of God has been revealed to you by Spiritual revelation.
Without the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, you can never have your eyes opened to a true Spiritual revelation of the Word. A man without the Holy Spirit is blind to God and His truth.
‘Man cannot live by bread alone but by every Word that comes out of the mouth of God’, said Jesus. Therefore if you compromise with the Word of God, you die spiritually, that is you become eternally separated from God because you cannot live with some of God’s Word, life comes by believing every Word of God no matter how heretic it might seem to be.
Acts 24:14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
So God knowing that a person’s character is to try to dodge His Word, he gave us the Holy Ghost to be our leader, to guide us into all truth so that we will never be eternally separated from God which means that we will be given eternal life.
A Holy Ghost filled person teaches you to do what the Bible says do without compromising a bit. He will not tell you that this Word was for another day or this Word violates human rights as defined by a corrupt man, who is spiritually dead.
The Holy Spirit gives us the power to overcome temptations because It is our constant reminder of the Word of God, and It gives us strength to overcome.
1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
If you’ve been baptized in an unscriptural manner you must be rebaptized according to Acts 2:38, and God will by His sovereign grace baptize you with the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
