Being baptized in and walking in the spirit of truth will lead you to discover all the truths that the Father wishes you to experience. However, the question remains, has that been your experience?


Growing up in a Pentecostal setting, I was surrounded by intense debates about the meaning of being Spirit-filled. These discussions often focused on speaking in tongues or receiving gifts of the Spirit. However, a closer examination of the Savior's teachings reveals his expectations for those filled with the Spirit differ significantly from what many experience.


Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:


The indwelling Spirit brings clarity concerning the deadly power of Sin, and the great benefits of righteousness through his Spirit who now live in us and we have now been made perfect in our Spirit.  


 For by one offering he has perfected forever them that are sanctified. (Heb 10:14)

Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and you see me no more;

Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.


 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. 

(John 16:7-15)
