But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:20-21.
When they arrest you and hand you over, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour; for it is not you who speak, but it is the Holy Spirit. Mark 13:11.
“When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” Luke 12:11-12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Let Me write on the tablet of your heart.
Have you ever heard of a “Ghost writer?” Do you know what it means? A ghost writer is hired to write literary or journalistic works, speeches, or other texts that are officially credited to another person as the author. Why do people hire ghost writers? Because the ghost writer can express better than they can what should be said.
Did you know I have a Ghost writer and I have given Him to you as well? And if you are a believer in My Son, I have put Him in your heart and He will write on the tablet of your heart. His Name is the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost knows My deepest thoughts and He shares them with you. He writes them on the tablets of your hearts. And then you write them, speak them, and share them with others. Paul wrote to the believers in Corinth, “you are a letter of Christ, served for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of hearts of flesh.” 2 Corinthians 3:3.
“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the LORD, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Jeremiah 31:33.
And Ezekiel heard My Spirit say a similar Word, “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. You will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God.” Ezekiel 36:25-28.
And what did Jesus say on coming into the world as one of you? “I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8. And He only spoke My Words, He said nothing on His own initiative, but He took My Words written in His heart as His own Words. He said, “Amen, amen, I SAY TO YOU.” And He told you if you loved Him you would obey HIS Words. When I give you a word to say, it becomes your own.
What did Jesus tell His disciples so they would not be afraid to face persecution for their faith? “When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” Luke 12:11-12.
When you read the Bible you will find many books with different authors given the credit for that book or letter. But do you know they all had a Ghost writer? “But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.” 2 Peter 1:20-21. The Bible is “God breathed,” and you know what My breath is? Of course, the Holy Spirit. And in both Hebrew and Greek the word for “spirit” is the exact same word used for “breath.” “Pneuma” in Greek and “Ruach” in Hebrew. And you will see it translated both ways, depending on what the translator interprets I meant. But you have to be careful about translations for in the original language in which Scripture was breathed by Me it is one word only.
Paul understood. That was how he wrote his amazing letters. And he told the Jews in Rome, when they did not agree with his witness to Jesus as the Messiah and they began leaving him, his parting word to them was: “The Holy Spirit rightly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your fathers, saying, ‘Go to this people and say, “You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; and you will keep on seeing, but will not perceive, for the heart of this people has become dull, and with their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes; otherwise they might see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart and return, and I would heal them.”’ Acts 28:24-27. You see, Paul knew who spoke the Word though Isaiah said it. That is what it means to be a prophet, you do not set forth your own opinion but Mine. And how do you know it? By the Holy Ghost.
After Peter and John healed the beggar lame from birth by the beautiful gate of the Temple by faith in the Name of Jesus, they were preaching Jesus and His resurrection to the people. The priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to them, being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. So they laid hands on them and put them in jail until the next day, for it was already evening. But many of those who had heard the message believed; and the number of the men came to be about five thousand. This greatly angered the rulers and scribes, so the next day they gathered together in Jerusalem; and Annas the high priest was there, and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of high-priestly descent. When they had placed them in the center, they began to inquire, “By what power, or in what name, have you done this?” Peter did not need to worry about how to answer, he remembered the assurance of Jesus that the Holy Spirit would tell him what to say. So he took a deep breath, and filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and elders of the people, if we are on trial today for a benefit done to a sick man, as to how this man has been made well, let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:1-12.
And you are all still quoting that speech, at least the last line thereof, today. When My Spirit speaks no word of yours will fall to the ground unfulfilled. 1 Samuel 3:19-21 (“Thus Samuel grew and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fail (fall to the ground). All Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was confirmed as a prophet of the LORD. And the LORD appeared again at Shiloh, because the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel at Shiloh by the word of the LORD.”)
And when the chief priests and the elders observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus. Acts 4:13.
And the community of believers waiting to hear the news of Peter and John were very aware of the activity and inspiration of the Holy Ghost in their lives. They listened to Him for direction and for their defense. And when they heard that Peter and John had been warned to no longer speak of or teach about the Name of Jesus, they lifted their voices to Me with one accord and said, “O Lord, it is You who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them, who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said, ‘Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples devise futile things? The kings of the earth took their stand, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord and against His Christ.’” Acts 4:23-26.
And in the Book of Hebrews, it is written, “And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, ‘This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days,’ says the Lord: ‘I will put My laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them,” He then says, ‘And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.’” Hebrew 10:15-17. Actually, you will find those words written by My prophet Jeremiah but they were given to him, as you see here clearly, by the Holy Ghost writer.
In the same way the Holy Spirit also helps your weakness; for you do not know how to pray as you should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for you with groanings too deep for words; and I who search your hearts know what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for you praying according to My good, pleasing and perfect will. I may be trying to direct you to pray for a soul being lost or in danger on another continent but you may not pick it up except by the Holy Ghost. Or it will often be a problem in your own life in which you are badly in need of direction upon. And the Holy Ghost will pull the helm with you to turn you around in the right direction.
Do you remember what Jesus told you about the wonderful Holy Spirit who would be in you and with you always to lead you and guide you to all truth? The night before He died for you, Jesus told you, “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.” John 16:12-15.
I love you and I have given you an amazing, awesome and wonderful gift, My Spirit. And no matter what it is from advising your children, working out things with a neighbor, making a presentation at school or work, teaching a Sunday School class, witnessing to someone about Jesus, or appearing before a magistrate, judge or government official (or even just your boss), do not worry ahead of time about what you are to say, just ask Me to give you the words and a wisdom that no one can take exception to or contradict, and I will give you the words by My Holy Spirit, your (Holy) Ghost writer. And I am not saying not to prepare it beforehand, but when preparing it seek My guidance, and the Holy Spirit will guide you to just the right resources to find your answers and give you exactly what to say in exactly the time allotted. Jesus told you it was better for you that He return to Me or He could not have sent you the treasure of the Holy Ghost. John 16:7. And of course, He was right. My Word is truth.
