The Bible was the result of another Holy Spirit history

According to Puritan theologian John Owen, “The Bible was the result of another Holy Spirit history.”

The Holy Spirit guided and instructed the writers of the Bible. It is said that the Old Testament prophets are those who have been touched by God, those who have received direct revelation from God.

Documenting the Bible required three elements.

  • 1 The emotion of the hearts that the prophets must receive, a clear knowledge and understanding of what they must convey
  • 2 The presentation of a word that effectively expresses the thoughts in the minds of the prophets
  • 3 The guidance to the hands of the prophets who are required to write down the words presented.

However, the Holy Spirit does not exert any force on the human mind. By working with humans, he harmonizes them with their natural character, natural talent, and acquired abilities.

We are all too familiar with the words the Holy Spirit suggests we use.

According to reformist theologian Herman Bavink.

Our thoughts and concepts are cut off by the Bible, and we are guided to God himself. The Bible does not argue about God, but presents him to us and shows him through everything he has done. Besides what God has built, we learn about God and glorify him through his work in nature and grace. 

Biblical Inspiration

According to Princeton reformist theologian Benjamin B. Warfield, the Bible has unique authority because it has been inspired.

Not everything in the Bible is inspired, but everything in the Bible is inspired.

As a record, the Bible is profound and unmistakable. The word “inspiration” means “God breathed in.”

The phrase “All Scripture is God-breathed” in 2 Timothy 3:16 is the only text in which the term “theopneustos” is used.

In the Bible, the Hebrew word neshama, which means inspiration, is also used only once. A Bible is such a “result of God’s activities” because God has instilled these messages into and through people.

Everything in the Bible was given to man by God. It is also important to consider the characteristics of each Bible reporter and his references to his research and other sources when considering inspiration.

The Holy Spirit inspires humans to accept and implement revelations.

Verbal inspiration” means that the Holy Spirit closely supervised and controlled these people. In fact, every word is inspired.

Nevertheless, the Bible is not just God’s dictation. In the Bible, the authors’ personalities are revealed. In the Gospels, each author has his or her favorite words. Matthew and Luke’s Gospels differ from the Lord’s Prayer.

Light can help clarify the concept of inspiration by comparing it with revelation.

Hebrew and Greek words “galah” and “apocalypto” mean “to reveal” and “to peel”. God’s revelation is referred to by both words.

God’s proposal is often used, but sometimes it refers to character exposure as well.

The ultimate truth can only be revealed by God, and humans can only discover or interpret it once it has been revealed.

God fulfilled the revelation in the Bible through inspiration. The revelation is done by God, but man is conscious as a result of inspiration.

The prophet conveyed the words he received from God in this inspiration. Thus, inspiration includes both the prophet’s character and the words he wrote.

In the Bible, everything is described as inspired, so it is a profound and unmistakable document.

In spite of the fact that the 66 Bibles were written over a period of 1600 years by more than 40 journalists, there is only one type of doctrine and only one type of ethics throughout the Bible.

One spirit of “hope for Messiah” permeates the Old Testament.

As revelation is an objective revelation of truth while inspiration is a subjective discovery of truth, illumination emphasizes enlightenment and understands it.

The truth is revealed by God through revelation and humans understand it through the light of truth, but all are the actions of God.

God’s communication with humans is interconnected by three concepts: revelation, inspiration, and illumination, but they are clearly distinct, and they play an essential role.

Light is a gift of God’s communication with us, revelation is the fact that God communicates with us, and inspiration is God’s means of communicating with us.
