SPIRITUAL HEALING VS. PHYSICAL HEALING
Part 11: The Revelation of Truth Comes By The Spirit
(I Corinthians 2:10)
Peace be unto you. Gracious Father thank you for your Son our Savior Christ Jesus. Thanks to you also for the Holy Spirit.
Meanwhile we pray for mercy upon the land as death and sickness is all around us. We also see man thriving on things of the world thus causing great calamities throughout the earth.

Brethren we are blessed to see a God that not only provided us with a Savior but also a guiding Spirit to lead us along the way to salvation. The proper road to salvation guided by the Spirit also renders Spiritual Healing. Therefore follow us as we continue our discussion taken from I Corinthians the second Chapter.
I Corinthians 2:10: “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God”.
The ordinary mental faculties of man were not capable of comprehending the great spiritual Truths of God. However the revelation was forth coming and it was done by the Spirit. Thus God through Christ allowed the Spirit in abundance upon the Apostles and the other writers of the New Testament.
In the 13th Chapter of Matthew Jesus talks about the use of parables and stories when He talks to the people. The bracket of scriptures 10-17 is when Jesus notes why he used parables (also see Mark 4: 10-12; Luke 8, 9 & 10). In verse 11 Jesus answers the question why.
Matthew 13: 11: “He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given”.
Even the disciples did not understand the meaning of the parables until Jesus was with them to explain them. What about the teaching of the parables today? Are they a means to better understand the scriptures?
Today we have the parables, the church and the Gospel thus we can show the comparisons. Meanwhile we note that the kingdom was not present when Jesus spoke to the multitudes. Therefore it was not time to introduce them to all of the mysteries or unrevealed truths. Now go with us to the Book of John where we find more about the Holy Spirit.
John 14: 26: “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”.
As we look at the previous verse and beginning with verse 16 we note that: The Spirit would aide with the Apostles forever. It is called the Spirit of Truth because it is to guide the Apostles in all Truth. No one was promised the Sprit until they came from the world to God.
So in verse 26 we see the guidance of the Holy Spirit allowed the Apostles infallible accuracy in relating things about Jesus. Ordinary human faculties were not able to recall what the Holy Spirit allowed them to recall and relate ( Also see John 15: 26).
As we look further in the Book of John we see Jesus teaching about the Holy Spirit in John 16: 5-16. However our primary verses are 13-15.
John 16: 13-15: “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
“He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you”.
“All things that the Father hath are mine; therefore said I , that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you”.
The Apostles were assured that the Spirit would guide them and no truth would be omitted that was necessary for their work. In Romans 8: 27 and our primary scripture taken from I Corinthians 2: 10-11 we are taught that the Holy Spirit is fully aware of the desires and purpose of God. This is why the Spirit was able to tell the Apostles of things to come.
Meanwhile (verse 14) the Holy Spirit would seek to glorify Jesus by receiving the truth then passing it on to the Apostles.
Finally in verse 15 we see that the Father and Son were united in the great scheme of human redemption. Thus what pertained to one was a concern of the other.
