The Spirit of Truth
Last week we saw how a man who had received Christ begins to connect to God through the Holy Spirit who also happens to be the Comforter.
This week, continuing with the same theme, we are looking at the spirit of truth.
“Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me” (John 14:6, Amp).
In the above text, Jesus declared Himself as the truth, meaning that He is the only genuine One. He came to earth as the Son of God and there could be only counterfeits apart from Him. Also, He is the only true access that any man can have to God.
“In Him you also who have heard the Word of Truth, the glad tidings (Gospel) of your salvation, and have believed in and adhered to and relied on Him, were stamped with the seal of the long-promised Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 1:13, Amp).
After Christ had completed His journey on earth, when He was returning to the Father, He prayed to God to send us the Holy Spirit in the place of Him. The above text clearly explained that we were sealed with the promise of the Holy Spirit, the moment that we received the Word of Truth, that is Christ. Hence, one of the names of the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of Truth—He exposes all things to Light. At the creation of the world, when the world was dark and void, the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the deep, leading the way for light to swallow up the darkness. The Holy Spirit is also referred to as the Spirit of God.
What does that tell you?
- It means that the Holy Spirit is a storm-stiller.
- It means that the Holy Spirit can infiltrate and swallow up any darkness in your life.
- It means that Holy Spirit can make the impossible possible.
- It means that the Holy Spirit can unravel deep secrets.
- It means that the Holy Spirit can guide you into the light.
- It means that the Holy Spirit can shelter you from the lies of the devil.
- It means that the Holy Spirit can lead you to safety.
- It means that the Holy Spirit is the helper that you need in this dark world.
It was the Holy Ghost who exposed the lies of Ananias and Sapphira in the book of Acts 5.
With the Holy Spirit, it was also easy for Paul to discern that the slave girl following them around and proclaiming the future was demon-possessed. Acts 16:16.
The Holy Spirit is truly the Revealer of all things. He is God-in-us, given to you and me, so that life can become easy.
Do you need light?
Why not go to God in prayer today? As long as you have received Christ or are willing to do that, you can have the same seal of the Holy Spirit on your life.
Father, saturate my life with your light and take all my guilt and shame away in the name of Jesus.
