He Will Take What Is Mine (LS65)

             'Last Sermon of Jesus'

John 16:14 "He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you."
    The Helper in us will glorify our Lord Jesus for He will take from our Lord Jesus all His words, teachings, parables, etc. and guide us into all truth. The Helper cannot teach anything outside the words of Jesus.

Act 4:11-13 "This is the 'stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.' Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.
     This was fulfilled in the Book of Acts. Born again Christians today are similar to the Jews in the OT. By faith their sacrificial lamb was our Lord Jesus. In the OT, the Holy Spirit was given to the priesthood, prophets, kings and leaders along with the spiritual gifts to empower them in their ministries and to serve the Almighty God. (Read also LS63 - When the Helper comes)

Jer 31:33-34 "But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for *they all shall know Me,* from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."
     It was prophesied that the future people of God will no longer be Jews (who could not keep the law and prophets) but born again Christians baptized in the Holy Spirit or Spirit of truth so that God can:-
1. Put the laws in their mind  
John 14:26b "bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
2. Write the laws in their hearts
John 14:15-16 "If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever"
3. No more taught by man
John 14:26a "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things,"
4. All will know God
John 16:13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth;"

Heb 1:1-2  God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.
    Brethren, all those who are led by the Spirit of God must perform according to the words of Jesus. Avoid teachings or doctrines which are outside the words of Jesus and the Epistles of the Apostles. Wrong doctrines or heresies, which include positive confession, prosperity gospel, extra grace, demonic manifestations or false prophesies, keeping the OT law and Jewish feasts.
Eph 1;13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
