The Pharisees and scribes trusted in their interpretation of the written CODE of the LAW. The disciples and Apostles of CHRIST trusted in the revelation of the WORD of GOD in CHRIST through the HOLY SPIRIT. (Romans 7:6, 2 Corinthians 3:3-6, Revelation 1:1-3)
There will always be a divide between dogmatic and literal interpretation of the written SCRIPTURE and the revelation and illumination that comes only through God’s HOLY SPIRIT.
Many believers depend upon their human intellect, human wisdom and human understanding for information about YHVH and eternal life. But The LORD’S sheep know that human beings cannot discover anything significant, appreciable or soul saving about GOD apart from being led by GOD through HIS HOLY SPIRIT. The children of YHVH totally trust in and depend upon the HOLY SPIRIT (The Teacher and Voice of God) for revelation. (Matthew 11:25, John 10:27, 1 Corinthians 1:20-21 and Galatians 1:11-12)
Only The Holy Spirit can reveal to us what GOD means in HIS WORD and what THE LORD is saying through HIS WORD. (1 Corinthians 2:10-16*** and 1 John 2:27)
One may be endowed with great intelligence, human wisdom and credentials but unless one is gifted by FATHER YHVH with HIS RUACH HA-KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT), they can’t know anything of GOD or of HIS WORD except that which is most basic and fundamental. (1 Corinthians 3:1-3 and Hebrews 5:12)
WHEN WILL WE GROW UP UNTO SPIRITUAL MATURITY?
