Part of a sporadic, usually-on-Thursdays series of just God’s Word and pictures, passages I’ve been soaking in….just because. You can see the other posts here.
“As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you,
and you do not need anyone to teach you.
BUT as his anointing teaches you about all things AND
as the anointing is real, not counterfeit–
just as it has taught you, remain in Him.”** I John 2:27
**so you must abide–live, never to depart,
rooted in Him, knit to Him. (Amplified)
“The teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit (what is commonly called illumination)
does not involve revelation of new truth or the explanation of
difficult passages of Scripture to our satisfaction.
Rather, it is the development of the capacity to appreciate and appropriate God’s truth already revealed–making the Bible meaningful in thought and daily living.
‘all things’–All things necessary to know for salvation and Christian living.”
