7-22-2015 The Holy Spirit Or The Written Word?

Why do people listen to what God says first but not last? Jesus promised the Apostles the Holy Spirit when He said, “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” (John 14:26 NKJV). When this happened on Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4, 14-22), “And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen” (Mark 16:20 NKJV). Those miracles cease when the word “was confirmed to us” (Hebrews 2:3). Scripture says, “If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 14:37 NKJV). The written Word is God’s Message today.
