The Spirit of God Shall Teach You!

The Spirit of God Shall Teach You!

Luke 12:12 "For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say."

Is it just me or do we not hear much being said and taught regarding Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) The Holy Spirit is one of the most important Spiritual attributes of the believer and to be quite honest, it's hard to do anything for God without the Holy Spirit. In the referenced scripture in Luke 12:12, Jesus is telling His disciples to let God speak through them. The words the Holy Ghost puts in your mouth will be what they should say when they are questioned or even when they are ministering. In other words, turn your tongue over to God and let Him do the rest. In that same chapter of Luke, 12:10, the writer tells us, "And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven." What does the writer mean, when he writes about, "Blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost": Please understand, this was not a sin of ignorance, but a deliberate, willful, settled hostility toward Christ, exemplified by the Pharisees (in Matthew 12), who attributed to Satan the work of Christ (11:15). This has always been a controversial Scripture. We must look at the Holy Ghost and understand the person of the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of the risen Christ.

In my humble opinion, this sin is also the sin of dying not believing in the risen Christ. This is total rejection of God and His teaching, choosing Satan over God. Just as Jesus was crucified from the foundation of the earth, the Holy Spirit is eternal as well. In, Luke 12:11 it tells us "And when they bring you unto the synagogues (Church), and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:"

"Take ye no thought": i.e., do not be anxious. This does not suggest that ministers and teachers should forego preparation in their normal spiritual duties. To cite this passage and others like it (21:12-15; Matt. 10:19), to justify the neglect of study and meditation is to twist the meaning of Scripture. This verse is meant as a comfort for those under life-threatening persecution, not an excuse for laziness in ministry. The exact same expression is used (in verse 22), speaking of concern for one's material necessities. In neither context was Jesus condemning legitimate toil and preparation. He was promising the Holy Spirit's aid for times of persecution when there can be no preparation. Finally, John, 14:25, tell us "These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. "Then I said, I will not make mention of Him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fireshut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay." Jeremiah 20:9
