“The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the (our) Father has sent will teach you all things.” John 14:26

I’m still studying the 14th chapter of the Book of John… a work full of crucial revelations and words of promise. That the Holy Spirit will be with us every second when we ask the Lord into our life. How Spirit will teach and bring to us every word spoken by our Lord of Love that brings us all together in this life. And forward into eternity.

He said, “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:26-27 

Biblical scholars say, “Jesus promised the disciples that the Holy Spirit would help them remember what He had been teaching them. This promise ensures the validity of the New Testament as we listen to Him.” How? It’s the phenomenon for which there are no adequate human words. The “KNOWING” within us that occurs when we pursue the path God has for us. It’s the feeling in those moments when answers and directions we seek reveal themselves and we understand that TRUTH we can trust has been revealed. THIS is actual communion with our Father. THIS is one of the multitude of gifts Spirit brings us, perhaps the most important. So, this is a promise we must always remember and live by. The promise that He would teach us all things and remind us of everything Christ Jesus taught us. By ringing that TRUTH bell so palpably inside us, we can’t deny that God’s hand is on us and our lives. 

The disciples were eyewitnesses of Jesus’ life and teachings. His Holy Spirit helped them to remember all that Jesus said and did. Inspired them to document those sacred days and, in doing so, left a blueprint of guidance for us that has lasted to this day. Spirit’s work is INCREDIBLE to behold. 

As the Lord said through Paul, “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.” 1 Corinthians 2:10 -11 

Jesus’ Spirit within The Trinity is such an important part of our communication with God. It is HOW it is done and when Spirit comes to dwell in us, it is literally a life-giving gift. As we study God’s Word or pursue His will for us, we can Spirit will plant truth in our mind if we leave ourselves open and believe in His presence, promptings and divine work within us. This is the peaceful yoke and peace within Jesus wanted us to experience. The gentle way He wants to lead us. How very blessed we are to have Spirit, our Advocate, in our lives in every way. 

As we give thoughts to the Ukrainians, a headline says, “UK to send more weapons to Ukraine; more than 9.5 million Ukrainians have fled their homeland.”

This is such a horrible thing to hear of. So unbelievable in today’s world – but it is reality. Let us help them in any way possible.  

Blessings and Love to each of you as you carry the Love of our Lord to those in your life. May you be blessed in every way as you do.๐Ÿ’š
