The Holy Spirit also asked if I was prepared to receive truth and then asked what was I going to do with it once I received it? His next question was, did I really understand what it truly stood for and its power within my journey and working out my Salvation?
I have always asked anyone who stated they wanted to walk in Yeshua’s footsteps if they knew what commitment was expected of them?
I think John Gill (1697-1771 has explained quite clearly what it is and how difficult it is to walk in those footprints. I, for one, am prepared to do so knowing the Lord is there with me guiding, supplying answers and uplifting me because I genuinely have him in my heart and totally believe in His promises and teachings.
John Gill “And ye shall know the truth,….. Either the truth of the Gospel, the truth as it is in Yeshua. Meaning that they should have a larger knowledge of it. While others are ever learning and never come to the understanding of the truth. But the spirit of truth should lead them into all truth, and cause them to grow and increase in Gospel light and knowledge, or Yeshua himself.
Who is the way, the truth, and the life, and the sense is that they should know more of him? Of the dignity of his person, of the nature and usefulness of his offices, of the efficacy of his blood. The excellency of his righteousness, and the fulness of his grace, and that for themselves: “And the truth shall make you free.” From ignorance and error, and the prejudices of education, under which the whole nation laboured, and from the thraldom (slavery) of the law.
He that by faith chooses God for his protector, shall find all in him that he needs or can desire. And those who have found the comfort of making the Lord their refuge, cannot but desire that others may do so. The spiritual life is protected by Divine grace from the temptations of Satan, which are as the snares of the fowler, and from the contagion of sin, which is a noisome pestilence. Great security is promised to believers in the midst of danger. Wisdom shall keep them from being afraid without cause, and faith shall keep them from being unduly afraid. Whatever is done, our heavenly Father’s will is done; and we have no reason to fear. God’s people shall see, not only God’s promises fulfilled, but his threatenings. Then let sinners come unto the Lord upon his mercy-seat, through the Redeemer’s name; and encourage others to trust in him also.
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing His bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger or shortfalls within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength.
