**The School Teacher and The Will**


"The school teacher is that woman who comes into the classroom and everyone keeps silent. She beckons for an answer and her students raise up their hands. She gives a question and also the solution, so that her students may have an example with which to use as a platform for their class assignments and homework. She gives the instructions for an exercise, and then tells you how to do it...but have you ever wondered why her functions never stopped there? She also calls you to attention when you do something wrong, she is a disciplinarian in every sense, giving you punishments if she must exercise her power, hoping you'd learn a lesson or two from them. When she sees you are on the path towards making a mistake in your school work (and sometimes even in your personal life) she calls you to her office and tells you to sit down, giving you the discussion of a lifetime...she is a teacher..."

John 14:26 "But 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..."

Today, I had a revelation concerning my school teacher, the Holy Spirit. God taught me about what the Holy Spirit meant to me. He is my school teacher for LIFE. He teaches me ALL THINGS. When I was 1, He taught me how to walk. About that age as well, He also taught me how to talk. From an early time, He taught me the differences between good and evil. When I became mature, He taught me why I had to give my life to God. He taught me how to interact with friends. He taught me how to come out of unnecessary relationships, and He taught me how to walk towards my destiny in relationships birthed by God only. He is still teaching me today how to walk in this journey called "life."

Before this new revelation, I thought the Holy Spirit's function was just to make me memorize scriptures and pour them all out. But today I am being taught about my school teacher once again. Yes He helps me learn new scriptures, but His functions do not stop there. The bible says He teaches me ALL THINGS...an ALL-INCLUSIVE phenomenon. Every tool I need to succeed in life can be taught to me by the Holy Spirit, but I just have to come to the realization that He is my teacher. He can tell me every step to take, the right words to speak at the right time, the right relationships to build and also the ones to cut off and throw in a thrash bag. He can teach me those things that are good for my health and those that are bad for my health. He can basically teach me anything I need to know.

One important thing is that He is the One that brings the word of God into my remembrance. So today, He brought a new word to me (and He taught me the meaning of that word). I had never read this scripture in the way the Teacher taught me today. He began to teach me the scripture in which Jesus said these words, "For whoever does the WILL of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother." (Matthew 12:50). I asked myself if I was Jesus' sibling. I only qualify to be His sibling if I do the will of God. But then I asked myself, "what exactly is this will?"

The Teacher took me to the book of Revelation (Rev 11:17) that says that 'the rest of the offspring of the woman are those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus.' Therefore, the will of God is actually the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus. I checked the definition of a "will," and it says in the dictionary that a will is a "wish, desire, purpose to be carried out, and legally it is a disposition towards another person that is written and signed by a testator (someone who writes a will before dying) and attested by witnesses." If you are seeing what I'm seeing, then your mind will be blown out of proportion. Everything in the word of God was written by God Himself (as the testator), and all the witnesses who compiled these things into a book were only just attesting to these things (affirming that these things were correct, genuine, and true)...because God inspired them and showed them mighty things in secret places, hence they became witnesses to His word...

I have now asked my school teacher to help me understand this will, and to help me walk in it...
