Transcript of Scripture and the Holy Spirit

General revelation is what we can know about God just from creation.
What is general revelation?
What is special revelation?
Special revelation is God revealing specifics of himself throughout history to Prophets and ultimately through Jesus’ life and death to be carried on by the Apostles.
Hebrews 1.1-3
Romans 1.19-23
18
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
19
For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
20
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
21
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22
Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
23
and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

Psalm 19.1-4
1
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
2
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
3
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
4
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
These encounters with God were written down to form the Bible we have today.
Romans 15.4
For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
1
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
2
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
3
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high
The Holy Spirit's role in writing Scripture
The Holy Spirit's role in writing Scripture
2 Tim. 3.15-17
15
and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
16
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
17
that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Peter 1:19-21
19
And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,
20
knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation.
21
For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit's role in understanding Scripture
1 Cor. 2.10-16
10
these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.
11
For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.
13
And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
14
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
15
The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one.
16
“For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
