The work of the Spirit to teach the World of
the Truth.

Today the Spirit of God is still seeking to reveal to our hearts the things, which the Father has commanded Him to reveal. But because we have trusted in our understanding for so long, many may find it difficult to accept the Truth without more proof.

The Word reveal to His disciples while He was yet with them, that He will pray to the Father and HE shall give to us another COMFORTER, that HE may abide with us for ever. Maybe those who seek more proof will accept the Truth when they see for themselves what the Word said in His prayed to the Father while He was yet with His disciples on their behalf.

In His prayer to the Father, He said, "...Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent" (John 17:1-3).

The definition of Eternal Life

The definition of Eternal Life is in knowing the only true God
and Jesus Christ-the Word, Whom HE has sent.

"I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

"Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them" (John 17:4-10).

Glorifying the Father

All that the Father has revealed through the Word, He has
revealed to His disciples.

"And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we [are]. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

"And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth" (John 17:11-19).

Glorifying the Father

The Word glorifies the Father by Keeping and sanctifying those who receive HIM
through the Truth. HIS Word is Truth.

"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare [it]: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them" (John 17:20-26.

Glorifying the Father by being One in the Word

The Word glorifies the Father by doing HIS will through those
who receive Him that they all might become One in Him.

This prayer was revealed to the disciples before the Word return to the Father, that we might have His joy fulfilled within our hearts through the knowledge of knowing His will for all those who believe on Him and serve Him by keeping His Law of Love--(the Ten Commandments).

He said as He spoke to His disciples, "But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you" (John 14:26).

Based on the Word of God, the Comforter is also the servant of the Word who by the Will of God is sent by the Word to do the same work that the Father did through HIS Word among His people, according to John 14:11-17.

To illustrate this Truth, Paul testified to the church and said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy [our] brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia: Grace [be] to you and peace from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Corinthians 1:1-4).

Notice: that Paul testified that he and Timothy were sent unto the church in Corinth to give the message of grace and peace from the Father and Jesus Christ. Notice that he did not included anyone else from whom the grace and peace came. Notice also that through them, the Father-The COMFORTER of all was able to do the same work that HE did through Christ, to comfort those who were in tribulation by the same Comforter, Who comforted them, Who is HIS Word-The Spirit of God.

The work of ministering to the lost

The same message of peace and grace was given to the other disciples that they might share the will of God for all men to be in fellowship with the Father and His Son-Jesus Christ by the Word. The Word said to them, "...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,

"and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen" (Matthew 28:18-20).

The church has misunderstood the Word of God because of the placement of the punctuation in the translation of the Scriptures. In the command given to those who believe in the Word, the emphasis was on the Holy Spirit, Who shall teach the nations through His servants and glorify the Father by fulfilling HIS will as HE did HIS work through Him.

For further evidence of this error, we can search the Scriptures to find a disciple or a believer in Christ who has baptized someone in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Ghost or the Spirit? If there were not a case to be found, would this reveal that the disciples disobeyed the Word, or would it reveal that there is not a case to be found?

There is a reason for revealing to His disciples that all power was given to Him in both the heaven and the earth. If there was another divine being between Christ and His servants then maybe we could turn to that person to gain power from God. But because the Word said all power was given to Him in both the heaven and the earth, there is no one else that we can turn too for comfort and help.

He is the Power that we should rely on to teach the nations by immersing them in the knowledge of His Father and Himself. For He said, "All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him]" (Matthew 11:27).

It is of Him, Who through His servants He shall teach the nations to observe all the things that He has commanded His body-the church to observe. For through Paul the Spirit revealed by him and said, "...As it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

"But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ" (1 Corinthians 2:9-16).

The work of teaching the gospel

In His commission to the church to go and teach the nations by HIS Power, He said, "...I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen" (Matthew 28:20). As the Father was with Him, likewise the Father will be with those who receive HIS Word in them, to do HIS will, according to John 1:12; 14:23.
