Illumination


Before Jesus went back to heaven he explains the Holy Spirit’s role:

John 14:26  The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”                   
John 14:17He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.”
John 16:15 “the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you”                

In Ephesians Paul says 1:17I ask the glorious Father and God of our Lord Jesus Christ to give you his Spirit. The Spirit will make you wise and let you understand what it means to know God.”  
                  
The Bible is the only book where you can talk to the author while readingit!
You can ask “Now what did you mean here?” How does this work?

Look at Ephesians 1:18-19 “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”

Enlightened -  “The light came on!” The A ha moment!  YES!  I got it!  I understand!   That’s Illumination! You’re spiritual eyes were opened!

Be wise today and always – let your spiritual eyes be opened.
