THE SPIRIT GUIDES US INTO "ALL TRUTH"

Conclusion

The Spirit guiding us into “all truth” extends beyond merely putting personal effort into knowing the Bible. Our search should be conducted within the perimeter of the Spirit’s guidance; it must fall within the framework of the Bible. The objective of the Bible is to testify of Jesus, His plan and His work (Jn. 5:39). We must avoid talking about subjects that fall outside the ambit of, and are not addressed in, the Bible. There is no need, and in fact it is dangerous, to look for spiritual “truth” that is extra-biblical. The Spirit only guides us to understand the already revealed “all truth” in the Bible. “All truth” (Eph. 2:20-22) encompasses whatever the disciples taught, together with Jesus’ teachings and the OT Scriptures (Lk. 24:44). The truth given in the Bible is complete and sufficient for us to have the wisdom needed for salvation and hope in Jesus.

The scope of the Spirit’s work gives us an indication of the extent that we may understand the perimeter of “all truth”. The sphere encompasses bringing to light the sin of man as a result of not believing in God. Jesus’ ascension proves that the word of God gives life to man, by the downpour of the Holy Spirit. God is righteous, and we can only be saved through abiding in His word. The greatest work of God in defeating Satan is declared by the Spirit that Jesus is always infinitely more powerful than the evil one.

God does not always give us direct revelation. The manifold wisdom of God is given to the church collectively (Eph. 3:10), not just the “elite”, namely the ordained full-time workers of God. At the same time, we ought to be aware that patterns of thought are among the most difficult ones of the mind to change. But with humility, the Spirit can mould our attitudes in studying the Bible to the required standard of God. Only in humility, can we then have a set of principles, which form the pattern under the guiding influence of the Spirit, to govern the way we explain the Bible. We pray that the Spirit may guide us all to attain to the unity of faith.
