The Holy Spirit Guides You into the Truth

(John 16:7-18)

Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim

is holy.
loved the Son so much that He created the world and gave Him
authority over all things (Mt 28:18).
The humble Son meekly submitted and came to the world
in the body of a servant (Phil 2:5-8).
He is in the form of God, but He did not allow Himself
to be equal with the Father, and He submitted as a servant.
He gave up His life and decided to forever serve
the one and only God the Father (Mt 6:13).
When He died, He died according to the Father’s will (Heb 5:7),
and when He rose again, He lived because the Father saved Him (Acts 2:32).
He showed that all His words and deeds belonged to the Father
and He gave all glory and honor to the Father forever (Jn 12:48-50).
He is not the self-existent One (Ex 3:14)
but He exists through the Father – this is an eternal condition (Jn 5:30).
As the Son is loved by the Father, pleasing the Father (Mt 3:17)
was counted to Him as righteousness (Gen 15:6).
During the first covenant, the One who appeared to Israel
was the Angel who had the memorial name, ‘Jehovah’ (Ex 3:15).
Jehovah governed His people with instruments
that were already in the world, but this merely attained holiness (Ex 3:5).
○ He proclaimed about sin, righteousness and judgement
for the sake of holiness, and He sanctified His people,
but this could not carry them from death to life.
○ The Holy Spirit set aside the Law (which was useless)
and set mankind free by the truth. This is freedom from sin and death.
○ The Holy Spirit gives the truth,
and He teaches about faith, righteousness, rebirth, and resurrection.
※ The Law and the Prophets were parables and were not complete,
yet the law of the Spirit is flawless – it is the law of freedom.
It forever witnesses to God, to His Son and to believers.
