8 I [the Lord] will instruct you and teach you in the way that you shall go; I will guide you with my eye. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Walking in the light is to be guided through life by God; walking in darkness is making your own decisions as to what to do and say; all sin is darkness. I will come again to the elect; I will be their crown to lead and guide them. Unless the Lord guides you, you have no chance."]
8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he will instruct sinners in the way.
9 He will guide the meek in what is right and he will teach the humble his way.2
10 And you must not be called master (leader, teacher), for you have one Master (Leader, Teacher), the Christ2 [Notice Jesus did not say, "I am your teacher; neither did he say, "scriptures are you teacher." He said, "the Christ;" Christ means the anointing or with God's spirit. So Jesus is telling them that the anointing, or the spirit of God, is their one teacher. Now look at what John says: "But the anointing that you have received from him abides in you, and you do not need any man to teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you all things and is truth, and is no lie; and even as it has taught you, abide in him." 1 John 2:27. Notice he speaks of the anointing as "abide in him;" he speaks of the spirit as a "him," whom Jesus has identified as "the Christ." The Christ speaks. ].
|1 John 2:20,27|
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.5
27 But the anointing that you have received from him abides in you, and you do not need any man to teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you all things and is truth, and is no lie; and even as it has taught you, abide in him.7[From the Word of the Lord within: "I choose whom to anoint; your response to my commands dictates my choice."]
26 But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit and whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things,6 and bring all things to your remembrance — whatever I have said to you.
45 It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Every man therefore who has heard, and has learned from the Father, comes to me. [Who has heard the Father speak from within their hearts comes to Jesus. Comes — not to sect services, not to prayer meetings, not to Bible reading, not to altar calls — but comes directly to him, by silently waiting on him, listening for his voiced commands and teachings.]
13 However when the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.3 For he shall not speak of himself, but he shall only speak what he hears; and he will show you things to come. [From the word of the Lord within: "Truly, I say to you, all the truth is magnificent; you will marvel when you see it. There are those who profess to know truth, only having knowledge of the Bible. It is no value to me to know truths and not know the Lord. Do you know him or just pretend to know him; to know him is to have met him and listened to him. Seek the meeting. To be in Jesus is to be in truth."]
20 Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will no longer be hidden, but your eyes shall see your Teacher;4 [When you have been purified through obedience and suffering in tribulation, you see God; you see the glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus.]
|Isaiah 48:17,54:13 |
17 This is what the Lord, your protector, the Holy One of Israel says: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you how to succeed, who leads you by the way that you should go.
13 And all your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.
