Taught By the Spirit




The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.

— John 14:26, MEV



It is the Holy Spirit that is to bring to our remembrance the words of Christ. The theme Christ chose to dwell upon in his last discourse to his disciples was that of the office of the Holy Spirit... They were to receive his words by faith, and the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, was to bring all things to their remembrance. 

When one is fully emptied of self, when every false god is cast out of the soul, the vacuum is supplied by the inflowing of the Spirit of Christ. Such a one has the faith which works by love and purifies the soul from every moral and spiritual defilement. The Holy Spirit, the Comforter, can work upon the heart, influencing and directing, so that he enjoys spiritual things. 

Now we must pray as never before for the Holy Spirit to be more abundantly bestowed upon us, and we must look for its sanctifying influence to come upon the workers. 

When God’s people humble the soul before him, individually seeking his Holy Spirit with all the heart, there will be heard from human lips such a testimony as is represented in this scripture: “...I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.” There will be faces aglow with the love of God, there will be lips touched with holy fire. 

Amid the confusion of delusive doctrines, the Spirit of God will be a guide and a shield to those who have not resisted the evidences of truth... God gives to every soul opportunity to hear the voice of the True Shepherd, to receive the knowledge of God and our Saviour. When the heart receives this truth as a precious treasure, Christ is formed within, the hope of glory, while the whole heavenly universe exclaims, Amen and amen! We have absolute need of the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. 

When we are endowed with the Holy Spirit, we by faith take hold of infinite power. 

O that we as a people might humble our hearts before God, and plead with him for the endowment of the Holy Spirit!

Cast out of your soul every false god, be fully emptied of self. The vacuum is then supplied by the Spirit of Christ. 

Pray as never before for the Holy Spirit to be more abundantly bestowed upon us and a sanctifying influence to come upon the workers. 

Humble your soul before Him, seek His Holy Spirit with all your heart that your lips may have His testimony. 

Humble your heart before God and plead with Him for the endowment of the Holy Spirit!
