October 5 ‘16 “Seeing What Really Is!” Part 3 ~by Paul Gray
How do we See What Really Is – in the unseen world? We have The Holy Spirit of Jesus, living in us, who is constantly revealing the Truth to us! The Teacher teaches us what really is!
Hebrews 2:9 (Mirror) Let us then consider him (Jesus) in such a way that we may clearly perceive what God is saying to mankind in him.
Matthews 23:10 “ And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.”
Luke 12:12 “For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”
John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
Hebrews 8:11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.
1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
1 Corinthians 2:13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
The Teacher sees us differently than we see ourselves. To “See What Really Is” – what is eternal, we need to listen to The Teacher and thus learn how God sees us and believe God instead of what we believe about ourselves from the world and what religious people have told us!
Baxter Kruger: “Union or separation is the issue: we tend to either see our humanity as separated from the Lord…or as a living union (abide). We see “secular” and “spiritual” But, there is no secular, only the evil one’s perversion. There really is no secular world at all. Jesus has filled the whole creation with Himself!”
“I refer to the evil one as “Ophis” which is the Greek word for “serpent or snake” used in the New Testament. I like to use “Ophis” because it sounds like (and reminds me of our word) Doofus! (“Doofus” – someone who hasn’t got a clue! – Urban Dictionary)
