Teach One Another – BT11
“The Promise” is for One Teacher, not many people to teach many sacred writings!

In the last BT10 BLOG we saw that Jesus made it clear in Matthew 23:8 that “ONE is actually, ongoingly your Teacher,” so we aren’t supposed to call anybody “Teacher,” especially since He said, “But moreover You are actually, ongoingly ALL [Christian] brethren.” The Satanic underworld, the human world, and its religions, even the Jewish one, are built on a hierarchical structure from “the greatest to the least” with leaders who have positions, offices, and titles who then ‘exercise authority over’ those under them, until you get to “the least among you”– little children and slaves. Jesus says, “It shall absolutely in fact not be so among you,” and so there shouldn’t be any more titles of respect for “special people” such as “fathers, leaders or masters or lords, and rabbis or teachers!” From now on, there is only “One Father” – the “Author and Original Thought or Mind that Originates” everything. There is only “One Head, One Leader or Master or Lord who rightfully owns us” as the Logos Communicator of the logos gospel message of The Truth, who Jesus said He was in John 14:6, who has all rule and authority, and this is “The Lord Jesus Christ” as used 66 times in the NT! There is only “One Teacher” who was the Father by His Spirit, then Christ on earth, then His Holy Spirit after Jesus ascended. However, since The Triune God is “One” you really have to say that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work at all times as “one.” The Son only says and does what He sees the Father say and do. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ and the Spirit of the Father! If these 3 have these positions, roles, offices, titles, and authority, it sure doesn’t leave any left for our claim, does it!
That’s why Jesus said in contrast to who “The Teacher” was, “but moreover you are actually, ongoingly ALL [Christian] brethren.” Period! Jesus makes the whole playing field under Him completely equal, absolutely destroying any other levels – it’s a horizontal structure with One GOD as Father, Son-Master, and Spirit-Teacher above all the rest of us! Jesus made this crystal clear! But Jesus says if you insist on a vertical structure of men, then the arches ‘firsts’ or megas ‘great ones’ in God’s kingdom are actually those who will be like slaves here on earth, only serving others like Jesus did, and certainly not bossing others around. Jesus said, “The [so-called] ‘lasts’ shall be firsts and the [so-called] ‘firsts’ shall be lasts!” This simply destroys much of the structure and worldly attitude of most of today’s Church that built itself with stones borrowed from an ungodly world ruled by a hierarchy of Satan and demons! This is how much of The Great Wall quenching the Holy Spirit in the Church is being built, one stone after another!
The Triune Godhead is unified – God is ONE! The Father-Teacher draws people to Jesus Christ by the means of the Holy Spirit, just as He did while the Christ-Teacher taught on earth. Jesus only taught what the Father taught Him, making Christ completely faithful in carrying out the Father’s commandment to preach the “Great News” of the logos gospel message of The Truth. Christ was filled with the Holy Spirit without limit, so He completely represented the Father in every way. Jesus confidently said, “I and the Father are ONE” and “Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father.”
Now that Christ has ascended into heaven, He has given the Church “The Promised” grace-gift of the Holy Spirit–Teacher so that the Christ-Teacher (a) can continue being “beside us” and now “in us,” continuing to come “close beside” us as the Parakletos (b) to quietly and gently teach, counsel, and advise us in all things, whispering at our side “walk this way,” by “guiding us towards/at springs of living water.” Like I said, the apostle John says that the Spirit’s “anointing, Spirit-baptism, outpouring or coming upon us . . . teaches us absolutely in fact all things, so that we have absolutely in fact no need for any other teacher.” <Notes> a) the Logos Communicator, b) Parakletos: ‘Close-beside’ caller, summoner, or inviter; helper, succorer, or assistant; encouraging teacher, counselor, comforter, or consoler; defense-attorney, judicial-advocate, or court-intercessor.
For sure, “The Promise” wasn’t for more gramma writings collected into scrolls and books called graphe scripture or many entole officially-decreed commandments that people had to do to be right with God and receive His unconditionally-loving favor – now there are only 2 commandments. If we have Jesus Christ, the “living logos Word/Message of God” (a) now as His Holy Spirit directly teaching us, what do we need gramma writings in a book for? <Notes> a) Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23.
Instead Peter, Paul, and John remind Christians that “They shall all be taught by God” by the means or through the Holy Spirit’s directly-spoken/heard prophetic rhema words – even through dreams and visions. Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Paul, and Barnabas wrote that “The Promise” was that the Father’s instruction (d) would be directly written on the tablets of our hearts and minds, inwardly “causing” us by His Spirit-power to walk in His ways. Thus, the Holy Spirit as Parakletos (e) also becomes our Helper! <Notes> a) gramma: letters, words, sentence, etc. mechanics of written communication, where get the term grammar, b) graphe where we get the term graph paper, c) entole, d) Torah, nomos, e) Parakletos: ‘Close-beside’ caller, summoner, or inviter; helper, succorer, or assistant; encouraging teacher, counselor, comforter, or consoler; defense-attorney, judicial-advocate, or court-intercessor.
God’s directly-spoken/heard prophetic rhema words are what go out and never come back void – not written bible verses! Discernment (a) means hearing the Voice of God to help us judge between the many right and wrong shades of grey in life, something a book could never do – see New Covenant Ways – BT16. This is “reading between the lines!” This is the way the OT prophets learned and walked, which is now “The Promise” to all of God’s servants (b). Christians are now the sacred “Letters of Christ, written absolutely not by ink but by the Spirit of the living God, absolutely not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts” (c) – see Logos Word of God – BT20. Furthermore, “The Promise” is absolutely not for more written logos messages, but for “the living, active, abiding logos Word/Message of God” (d) to be living in us so that we can hear/listen-to-understand (e) His Voice of directly-spoken/heard prophetic rhema words so that we can follow Him by walking, being led, and keeping in obedient steps with Him by His Holy Spirit. See the Prophetic Rhema page. <Notes> a) anakrino: judge/critique from within, b) Acts 2:17-18, c) 2 Corinthians 3:3, d) Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23, e) akouo.
As Christian musicians, shouldn’t we dispose of positions, offices, and titles and treat one another as equal brethren of His family, since Jesus adamantly commanded this? Isn’t there only One Father, One Leader the Son, and only One Teacher the Holy Spirit? Shouldn’t ALL of us be “submitting to one another” and “serving one another” and “outdoing each other in showing honor to all,” just as Christ became a slave to others? The Promise of the Father was never to continue reading and studying old scripture or even creating more of it, but the Holy Spirit to guide us into ALL truth so that we no longer depend on any men. We are free from their power-trips, errors, and even deception! God has gone direct!
