Teaching: This will mostly deal with doctrines and discernments.
Exodus 4:12 Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
Teaching of the Holy Spirit is another way of God’s leading. The basic of it is that He will give us teaching and then based on the teaching we will understand how to lead our life in a certain situations or what to speak or do during conflicts. Teaching is very important to know the doctrines from the Lord and to discern the falseness that prevails among us through the wolves.
In Ps 143:10 the Psalmist said, “Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” God the Holy Spirit will teach us to do the will of God and lead us in this life with discernments. Who knows the mind of God, it is His Spirit, and so He will teach us to do His will. How? We have seen in the previous days on how He gives us the understanding on issues or conflicts.
In this method of leading, we gain understanding through scriptures to understand how to lead our life. For example if we do not know how to deal with a particular conflict that is in our midst today and we do not know how to deal with it to keep ourselves holy before God, we can always ask God to TEACH us what to do in those situation. Because we need to know, what the scripture tells us in this regard to maintain holiness. Having waited in the presence of the Lord, Holy Spirit will teach us with a particular passage or bring to our remembrance an incident that happened in the scriptures. That moment we will receive the understanding . He can also teach us through believers who have the gift of prophecy. When they pray with us or speaking to us, one verse that they quote might be highlighted in our mind to capture it among many dispensations. When we ponder on that verse, Holy Spirit will give us much understanding through His teaching to us personally for our situation. So let us be open anytime to receive the teaching from the Holy Spirit, He will teach us at His will anytime and at any place.
