TEACHING BY THE HOLY GHOST | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Acts 24:24-25. And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

Beloved, glory and honour to our loving Father and God in heaven, for everything He made Himself to be for us His children of all ages. It might interest you that apart from the fact, that, God is everything, you know Him to be.  He also is a teacher of great reputation. He teaches His children of all ages to profit. This He will do for you too in Jesus name.

Isaiah 48:17-18 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

Psalms 25:8: Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.

Psalms 25:9: The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

Psalms 25:12: What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Isaiah 54:13: And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

God  uses His words in the Bible  to teach us.

Psalms 12:6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Psalms 1:2. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Joshua 1:8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Job 34:32 That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

He also raised up His servants to teach us His mind and will.  See some of them in Bible days. He wants to raise you too, up to be teaching those in your world of influence, the good and right way.
1. Moses

Exodus 24:12. And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Deuteronomy 4:5-6 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

2. Aaron and his sons

Leviticus 10:8-11. And the Lord spake unto Aaron, saying, Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean; And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

3. Samuel

1 Samuel 12:23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:

4. Ezra

Ezra 7:10. For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.

Ezra 7:25. And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not.

5. David

Psalms 34:11-14. Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Beloved, God abhor  anyone adding to  or diminishing  from His words, that He gave to teach His people. It is very unfortunate that, this has become the bane of our time. Majority of the ministers are motivational speakers.
Adding their own words and taking away, the vital words, God wants His children to be taught. I hope this does not look like you or the minister of the assembly or church, you are attending. If the case is like that, stop it. God is displeased by such attitude. If you are under a minister doing so.
Come out from such a church or assembly and  locate minister and church teaching the totality of God’s words as contained in the Bible.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2. Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 12:32: What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Joshua 1:7: Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

Proverbs 30:6: Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

The good Lord shall help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Dearly beloved, during the earthly ministry of our Lord, He was acclaimed to be the teacher that came from God.

John 3:1-2. There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

He was also reputed that He did all that He taught.

Acts 1:1. The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

All through His earthly ministry, His hearers always marvelled at His teachings.

Matthew 7:28-29 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Mark 6:1-2. And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

He taught His hearers the entirety of the scriptures and encouraged them to  abide by the words.

Matthew 5:17-19. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Mark 4:1-2. And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land. And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

John 8:31. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

Prior to His ascension He commanded His Bible days believers and also believers of all ages and that includes you,,to do same.

Matthew 28:19-20. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

However, for this to be easily attainable, He promised them the gift  of the Holy Ghost .

John 14:26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 16:13: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, thatshall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Luke 12:11-12. And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

1 John 2:20: But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

1 John 2:27: But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

TEACHING THE TOTALITY OF SCRIPTURES WAS A TIRELESS PRACTICE FOR ALL THE APOSTLES OF OUR LORD. THIS WAS WHAT, APOSTLE PAUL WAS DOING, WHEN HE WAS PREACHING TO FELIX, THE GOVERNOR IN HIS DAYS.

Acts 24:24-25. And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

This was the lifestyle of Paul the apostle anywhere and everywhere he  preached the gospel.

Acts 20:20. And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,

Acts 20:26-27. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

Acts 20:35: I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

1 Corinthians 2:12 -13 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

This same thing that all the apostles in Bible days, did, they passed it on to believers of all ages, especially you to do same, as commanded by the blessed Holy Spirit. See them,

Acts 20:28: ¶Take  heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood

1 Timothy 4:16. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

2 Timothy 3:16-17. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Timothy 4:1-4. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

1 Peter 5:1-4.  The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

It  is very unfortunate that, today’s preachers and their congregations are found wanting of this commandment from both our Lord Jesus Christ and the blessed Holy Spirit.  The preachers preached only what their  congregations wants to hear.
The congregations also wanted it so, even thou, they knew the eternal consequences of such practices.  I hope you are not one of them. You need to come out now, from such a church and associate yourself with a church and a pastor, teaching the whole Bible, that shall guarantee your wellness in eternity. Receive grace to do so in Jesus name.

Jeremiah 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

EMPOWERMENT TO TEACH TOTALITY OF SCRIPTURES  THROUGH THE PROMISED  GIFT OF HOLY SPIRIT FROM JESUS CHRIST, TO BELIEVERS OF ALL  AGES AND YOU.  CHAPTER  TWENTY FOUR OF ACTS.
Friend, I thank God for you that, you are determined  to do everything that will help you partake in the dawning rapture. The good Lord shall grant your earnest expectations in Jesus name.
However, remember if you don’t want to be part of the  great tribulation and in the name of Jesus, you shall not be part of it. So make sure you are in a church and under a minister that teaches, the totality of the scriptures.

Revelation 3:10-11. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

This becomes necessary according to the revelation of scriptures , the danger that are inherent in  associating with such churches and ministers.  The Blessed Holy Spirit gave several warnings in the scriptures, so that , faithful believers like you shall not fall a victim. You shall not fall a victim in Jesus name. See these warnings.

Romans 16:17-18.  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

1 Timothy 1:3. As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

2 Peter 2:1-3. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

2 John 1:8-11. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Revelation 2:20.  Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Please note  this and do not get to eternity before you know it. The ministers and their entire congregations who are not teaching the totality of the scriptures, shall end up in the  lake  of fire. Their names shall be blotted out of the book of life. And anyone whose names are not written in heaven, shall be thrown into the lake of fire.
This shall not be your portion, but take the necessary step now, that will help you avoid this regrettable situation at eternity. May the good Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name. See these scriptures and be guided.

Revelation 22:18-19. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Revelation 20:15. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

John 12:46-48. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
