But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own authority, but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you what is to come. – John 16:13
The Holy Spirit is here called the SPIRIT OF TRUTH. Jesus is telling us about our relationship to the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit’s relationship to Himself and the Father.
The Holy Spirit listens to Jesus and The Father, and speaks what the Father and Jesus tell Him to speak. When you learn to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit you can know that He is always in total agreement with the Father. It isn’t like Jesus will tell you one thing but the Holy Spirit would tell you something different. There is always unity among them.
It is vital to learn to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is given to guide us into all truth, and He will warn us about what is to come.
Over and over in Revelation 3 and 4, Jesus says, “To him who has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.”
Lord, teach your people how to hear the voice of Your Holy Spirit. We cannot live the life you intended for us without hearing your voice.
He will glorify me, because he will receive from me what is mine and will tell it to you. – John 16:14
