Jno. 16, 33

I.

In the unregenerate heart there is the spirit of strife, opposition to God, rebellion, at war with God.  It leads to sinful deeds, hurtful words and acts.

There can be no peace where there is conscious wrong in the heart.

II.

But when we turn to Jesus, yielding our will to him, he takes away the strife of sin, frees us from it and gives us peace.

(a)  Peace toward God, till his holy purpose is a pleasure.

(b)  Peace toward men; we love them, wish them well and try to help them when they are in need of it.

(c)  Victory over the world even as he overcame.  We live a victorious life, one of happy communion with God through Christ.

EDITOR’S NOTE:

I am glad that I have a rather large and comprehensive dictionary, for I find it essential in looking up words which my great-grandfather used but which have fallen out of common use over the course of a century or so.  Transcribing old documents is one way to learn antiquated yet good words.

THE FEAST OF THE BEHEADING OF SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST

THE FEAST OF JOHN BUNYAN, PROTESTANT SPIRITUAL WRITER

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Jno. 16, 12-13

1.

Jesus feels tenderly towards his chosen representatives.  He now must tell them of his approaching death.  He would tell them more save for their deep sorrow.  He is ready to say it all but they can’t receive it.  He will not break their hearts.

2.  

But he has dealt faithfully with them and all others and told them the germ of all they will ever know.  The rosebud will unfold and reveal its beauty now.

3.  

(A)  He will give them the Spirit of revelation who will bring it to their remembrance  of all that Jesus has said.

(B)  His function is to guide them into the whole truth–the fullness of the truth.  The Spirit is concerned not with secular knowledge which men may find out for themselves, but with spiritual truth.

(C)  He did this, superintending in the Epistles till the canon of Scripture was completed.  Now he helps understand what is written so that man has a “perfect law of liberty,” completely furnishing the man of God to every good work.

4.  

Jesus is the Truth; is no temporizer.  He spoke freely and fully save when the heart-broken disciples could not receive it.  Who obeys his teaching builds on the rock, who does not builds on the sand.

Eph. 5, 18

1.  The Spirit promised by Christ as in John 16, 7-14.   This is his administration.

2.  A person, conscious being.  We are conscious of personalities, hence we realize his presence–a reality.

3.   He convicts of sin.  Has appeared to bring salvation to all.

4.  Revealed God to the soul.  Whereby we cry, “Abba, Father.”  The only divine agent used in leading us to God.

5.  Dwells in the Christian heart.  We are his temple.  If any man hath not the Spirit dwelling in him he is none of his.

6.  Our Guide into all the truth.  Testifies to us of the truth.

7.  Our power for good.  The soul’s power is in him & from him.

8.  Is received through faith.  Galatians 3, 13-14

9.  Be filled with the Spirit.  Let the intoxication he produces be your inspiration.  Let him permeate the whole being, and dominate your whole life.
