But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future]. He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you. Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you. ~ John 16:13-15, AMP

God put His Holy Spirit inside born-again believers so that His Holy Spirit could reveal to believers and teach them about the absolute genuineness of God. This absolute genuineness of God is the source of the “Divine Truths” that are in the Holy Bible. Now, since God can never fail, or be incorrect, or even lie, then the Holy Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is without a doubt the revelation of God’s “Divine Truths,” which includes His commands, mysteries, principles, promises, prophecies, and so forth.

Therefore, Holy Spirit revelation knowledge is the knowledge of God, which has been divinely quickened in believers by the Holy Spirit through believers’ born-again spirits. In other words, when the knowledge of God’s Word enters born-again believers’ soulish minds, either through hearing or the studying of God’s Word, believers’ spirits will bear witness with the Spirit of Truth and the spiritual and/or natural wisdom He imparts. Wisdom, by the way, is the ability to apply knowledge!

Having defined Holy Spirit revelation knowledge above, it should now be clear that there is a difference between Holy Spirit revelation knowledge and intellectual knowledge. Yet, so many “Christians” still put more trust in that last degree they have earned, or more trust in those books, essays, etc., they have read, instead of letting the Holy Spirit of Truth teach them ALL things (cf. John 14:26)! Professed believers not trusting in the mighty workings of God’s Holy Spirit is why it is so sad to see “Christians” who continue to follow error instead of “Divine Truth” (Bible Truth), and why it is even sadder to see these same in error “Christians” defend error as if it were the “Divine Truth” (Bible Truth)!

The harsh TRUTH is that every person who professes to be a “Christian,” in reality, does not follow and does not believe in all of the same “Divine Truths” (Bible Truths). If every “Christian” were following God’s “Divine Truths” (Bible Truths) that the Holy Spirit reveals and teaches, then EVERY Christian would BELIEVE the SAME “Divine Truths” (Bible Truths), would SPEAK the SAME “Divine Truths” (Bible Truths), and would tightly EMBRACE the SAME “Divine Truths” (Bible Truths)! For sure, the Holy Spirit—the Spirit of Truth—cannot profoundly and comprehensively reveal and teach God’s “Divine Truths” (Bible Truths) to one person or group and then profoundly and comprehensively reveal and teach the SAME “Divine Truths” to another person or group, but this time making entirely different statements, or giving completely different instructions; understandings; moral, natural, or spiritual wisdom; or revealing and teaching utterly different deeper more perfect and more enlarged knowledge of those “Divine Truths”!

Honestly, God’s Holy Spirit ONLY can teach EVERY born-again believer the SAME understandings about the SAME revealed in depth “Divine Truths,” which means that He makes it possible for the Body of Christ’s oneness—for the ability of each born-again child of God to believe in, follow, speak, and cling to the SAME revealed and taught “Divine Truths.” Without a doubt, EVERY born-again believer can have Holy Spirit revelation knowledge, because God already has given to each of us the “mind of Christ” (cf. 1 Corinthians 2:16). Therefore, it should be clear that some professed “Christians” are lying when they declare that the Holy Spirit has given them totally brand new revelations and, thus, totally brand new understandings about God’s “Divine Truths,” if what they declare cannot be supported in the least bit with biblical Scriptures!

The bottom line, then, is this: If we are really born-again overcomers, then the Word of God will be made obvious, alive and powerful on the inside of us through Holy Spirit revelation knowledge (see Hebrews 4:12). If we really are NOT born-again overcomers, then the Word of God cannot and will not be made obvious, alive and powerful on the inside of us, even though we appear as if we know God’s Word—appear as if, or think that, the Holy Spirit has revealed to us new knowledge and taught us new understandings about God’s “Divine Truths.” In fact, when we only appear to know God’s Word, then God’s “Divine Truths” become subject to our own human interpretations based on our soulish mind’s intellect. That the soul’s mind and not professed believers’ own born-again spirit often is what is interpreting biblical Scriptures is why it is absolutely possible that the “institutional church” has many believers who are following, believing in, speaking, and clinging to egregious errors.

Lastly, in order for the Holy Spirit to reveal and teach each of us the SAME in depth “Divine Truths,” EVERY one of us who professes Christ first and foremost must be willing to let God release the power of His Holy Spirit in us, after which we then must be a seeker of God’s “Divine Truths.” Additionally, EVERY one of us who professes Christ must be ready to forsake ALL error and willing to replace errors with God’s “Divine Truths”!
