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, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Was this limited to the apostles?
Was Paul spoken to by the HS or, by the Lord God Jesus Christ himself, which is which? Who among the apostles, especially John who authored the book of Revelation, were shown by the HS of things to come to this world, was there any? Who did show things to come to John in the book of the Revelation, was it the HS or was it the Lord God Jesus Christ himself?
Jesus Christ is not limited to the apostles so is the outpouring of the HS. The believers of Christ are just being filled by the HS so that they (the believers of Christ) can feel the physical manifestation and responses of the Lord Jesus Christ to them.
Can the Holy Spirit (God) use the scripture, and others to expound the word such as preachers and teachers?
No, the HS does not teach nor speak to a believers or to the believers of the Lord, He (HS) is being sent to fill them (believers). It is the Lord God Jesus Christ himself who speaks and teaches the believers of God - Him only being the Good Shepherd of all.
Again in all things, faith is the victory. God said it, the Holy Spirit led me, and by faith I claim it; I am saved.
You have read it from the bible and you take it for yourself and believe same to be true to you. However, it is different when you literally come and call on to Jesus in the reality of His existence since in this way Jesus will literally come/respond to you in His own ways and you can hear Him speak (this is without visibly seeing Jesus in His own and true image) to you and it is from here where faith in Jesus will emerge and sprout in you.
I very much have experienced gifts from the Holy Spirit. I saw a child raised from the dead, a friend I took to church immediately healed of Rheumatoid Arthritis before my eyes, many through prayer healed, I've spoke in tongues, and my faith is increased. God has been altogether wonderful to me; I was dead and now I am alive as Christ liveth in me, and as Romans 8:38-39 says: "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Do you have that assurance of truth given you by the Holy Spirit? I am saved!
Have you seen Benny Hinn performed healing sessions in his congregations, how many claimed to be healed? Have you seen healing sessions in Catholic congregation? Have you seen their so called power of God and the HS when they were struck down by the instant wave of force which seemed to come from the hands of those preachers of different denominations? Can you tell the difference of what you are saying here from what they have in their various congregations considering they are not one in Christ? If you will notice, they are all taken from the bible and assume same to be true to them and you, where now is the reality of the existence of God in our life should what you are claiming is the genuine way? Is the bible the Lord God Jesus Christ?
My, my, my; how did you come to know God?
The Lord God Jesus Christ came to speak to us in His own ways one night when my whole family called on in Him deeply in the midst of our trial which no men can resolve or put an end to, it was in that moment that He, the Lord God, began to speak to us as He then spoke to Moses and to Paul. That is the way I can tell you how we came to know God.
Through your reckoning?
It is through personal revelation (experience) from the Lord Jesus, not through reading and understanding of the bible.
Do you without a doubt know you're saved and going to spend eternity with our LORD?
It is without doubt that I heard from the Lord God Jesus Christ that He gave us salvation and eternal life as a result of our acknowledgement of His own coming to our life through His own ways, but the Lord said we have to maintain and keep that salvation and eternal life He gave to us by simply following all that He will instruct and command us to do in our lives till the end of it.
If so, it had to come as the result of the measure of faith given you to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Salvation and eternal life is to be maintained by those to whom the Lord Jesus rewarded same and it is in this manner that the reality of the existence of the Lord will be continuously encountered by Godlical Christians.
If the Holy Spirit (God) led those of the past into all truth, why would that change for today?
It is the understanding of those who read and expound the bible that only say the HS teaches and speaks to the believers but, in truth and in fact, it is the Lord God Jesus Christ himself, not the HS, who truly speaks and teaches, in all ages, those who truly seek Him in the reality of His existence.
