The Greek preposition in some of the manuscripts is the preposition “eis” which means into. And you’ve probably had that same experience too.

It is not so much what they get in the classroom, though that is tremendously important, it is that most of the men who come have been born again, they have received the Holy Spirit as the indwelling presence of God, and since it is he who has written the Bible, he is best able to explain it, and through the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit they have come to understand spiritual things. That’s the third class of man. We are more patient.

It’s just the opposite. He says, “I have many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now.” The many things that Jesus has to say unto them are things that are found for us in the remainder of the New Testament.

Now, what kind of a person is that? If you were to talk to people who are used to the little clichés that we use in theological seminaries and Bible schools and colleges, and you were to hear someone ask the question, “What’s the chapter on the Holy Spirit?” Everybody would answer, “Well, the chapter on the Holy Spirit is Romans, chapter 8.” That’s the great chapter in which we have more taught about the Spirit than in any other place of the New Testament, except this Upper Room Discourse. It suggests that there is time needed or that this guidance is gradual. So these are the ministries of the Holy Spirit to believers, and we are tonight to discuss the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit.

This Greek word odega describes the guiding ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives. And probably, the better manuscripts and the application of textural criticism would lead us to believe that the proper preposition here, that our Lord gave, which John wrote, is the preposition ein. What do you do when a person is unhealthy? But, as you can see, this is entirely human, grammatical interpretation, historical, rhetorical, logical, analogical, ecclesiastical, systematic.

And as I’ve said to you many times, they even like to say they do not like the “mystifications” of the professional theologian, Paul. Now with regard to the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit, in John 14:16 Our Lord told the disciples that the Holy Spirit "...will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you." That is the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit. It’s not glorifying Christ! (I Timothy 4:13) It is not through the natural powers of man that God moves in our world. What can he learn? What does it mean to be “guided” by the Holy Spirit? That ministry is the ministry of the Spirit by which he imparts to us … It’s a way of saying that we become more like Jesus. (Jn. The doctrine of the Holy Spirit is a major biblical doctrine. I confess, we turned on the air conditioning and lit a fire in the fireplace, just to try it out.) John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

For he says, … (Matthew 22:43). That’s why natural life is as it is. It is the Holy Spirit of God who illuminates our minds concerning the Scripture. If you go down Carlsbad Caverns and they turn out the light, well, that’s where I learned what it meant in the Bible when Jude speaks about “the blackness of darkness forever.”. Well, there are two reasons for it. We have to know what modifiers are and so on. Guide and direct us, to the end that Jesus Christ may be honored and glorified. 2. He is the Divine power or energy by which his life is maintained and strengthened. Now, he describes the natural man. As we read in Zechariah, “It is not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord that things are accomplished.” That means that we can never do anything for God in the power of the human flesh; that the things that please God are the things that are done in the power of the Holy Spirit. He has to show us the errors of our ways and that we are all sinners in the eyes of God. And feeding on the meat of the word, grow and become strong and stronger and useful to God. And those sounds bounce off of the material within the cave, and they fly by those sounds. Here again we have teaching of the Holy Spirit, but we have something besides. Now, what does our Lord mean by guide? He may feed on the meat of the word. So implicit in this is a recognition of the fact that there must be a cooperation on the part of each one of us as the Spirit teaches us. [Prayer] Father, we thank Thee for this time together. It is the same for us; the Holy Spirit knows exactly where we should go and … This is the Holy Spirit's especial line of teaching with the believer, as with the unbeliever, Jesus Christ.

Now, tonight, we are going to study his teaching ministry; the ministry by which he imparts to us spiritual understanding. Paul goes on to say “Neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But, he also has a ministry to believers. Remember the context. He’s seeking to bring to men the words of God, interpreting to men who possess the spirit, spiritual truths. It’s entirely possible that a little phrase here or there we might wish to modify. And so, in a sense, this statement of our Lord is a pre-authentication of the remainder of the New Testament. So, the carnal weak. In other words, by the Spirit. This is the objective criterion for the test of all doctrine, the word of God. The teaching ministry of Jesus surfaced; as the result, he went to all cities, villages, and towns to declare the Gospel of the Kingdom. I can only speak for myself, I’ve studied the Bible now pretty diligently for thirty years, and I do not feel that I know everything in the Bible. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is the work of the Holy Spirit. If you’re a spiritual Christian, then you need to feed on the meat and become very useful to God. The first safeguard is the word. Spirit-Filled Teaching by Roy Zuck is an excellent book on the role of the Holy Spirit in teaching ministry, written by a master teacher and Bible expositor. SAY: These words from the Bible promise that the Holy Spirit will live in us. So he will “show you things to come.” That, I say, is an authentication, a pre-authentication, of what we have in the remainder of the New Testament. There is another thing about this text that we should not pass by without noticing, and that is that our Lord indicates from this that the things that he taught the disciples were not a complete revelation of the mind of God. To understand the Bible, we engage in the human work of interpretation; watching the grammar, the history, the culture and other things. They have not done their homework well.

If everybody is going around talking about the spiritual gifts and everybody is seeking the spiritual gifts and everybody is glorifying the Holy Spirit, then you can say there’s something missing in that teaching. That is the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit. We read “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.” Or, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the spirit.

Lewis Johnson provides a thorough exposition of how the Holy Spirit guides the saints in learning and knowing God's truth and the Scriptures. “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, the Greek text says, of the man which is in him.”. This person needs restoration. To be guided into something is, ordinarily, not an experience that is momentary or instantaneous. Discipleship is the goal of the teaching ministry of the church. One other thing, I think, that is stressed by this statement of our Lord is that since it is the work of the Spirit throughout this entire dispensation to guide us in the truth; I would think that that would indicate that we should not expect that his teaching ministry should ever end as long as we are on the earth.

The following are 10 ways the Holy Spirit works in the lives of believers. And then, we are interested in the interpretations that other men have made: Ecclesiastical interpretation. Yet Reformed Christians always have been given a “bad press” for their views on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. If we are in doubt about the meaning of a passage in Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, and we know he has written something about that subject elsewhere, we are justified after we’ve investigated that passage to go to the other passage and see if that throws light on this one because we assume that the writer of any work of literature is consistent with himself.
