Estudo das Escrituras: O Testemunho do Espírito Santo

Depois de falar com o Cristo ressuscitado, alguns dos seus discípulos descreveram os efeitos do Espírito Santo. O papel do Espírito Santo é confirmar a veracidade dos ensinamentos de Cristo e do Seu Evangelho.

Luke 24:32:

  • And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Jesus Cristo ensinou que o Espírito Santo pode nos ensinar a verdade.

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.

Jesus também ensinou que depois de sua morte o Espírito Santo testificaria da veracidade de seus ensinamentos, em harmonia com o papel do Espírito Santo como testificador da verdade.

John 15:26:

  • But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

Jesus ensinou o mesmo princípio em outro lugar: o Espírito Santo–o Espírito da verdade–pode guiar-nos à verdade.

John 16:13-14:

  • 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.

Os apóstolos ensinaram que, além de seu testemunho de Cristo, o Espírito Santo também atuaria como testemunha.

Acts 5:30-32:

  • The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
  • Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
  • And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

O apóstolo Paulo ensinou que os justos são herdeiros de Deus, co-herdeiros com Cristo, e que eles serão glorificados com ele. Ele ensinou que o Espírito Santo dá testemunho desse fato, confirmando o papel do Espírito Santo como testificador da verdade.

Romans 8:16-17:

  • The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
  • And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
  • For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Paulo também ensinou aos Coríntios que Deus pode revelar verdades espirituais através do Espírito Santo.

1 Corinthians 2:9-16:

  • But 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.

O apóstolo Tiago ensinou que qualquer um que tem falta de sabedoria pode pedir a Deus. Deus responde, normalmente por meio do Espírito Santo.

James 1:5:

  • If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
