Everyone has an ultimate source of authority for what they believe is true. For people who identify as Christian, the ultimate, final source of authority for what they believe is true is either themselves, a particular church, or the written word of God, i.e. the Bible. 

Some people say that Jesus is their ultimate and final source of authority for what they believe is true. The people who say Jesus is their authority do not seem to realize that such a claim is meaningless on its face because it doesn’t actually identify the Jesus in whom they claim to believe.

Is their Jesus based on their understanding of who Jesus is; or is their Jesus based on a particular church’s understanding of who Jesus is; or is their Jesus based on the biblical understanding of who Jesus is? Who Jesus is can’t be known until the ultimate authority that defined Jesus for them is known.  

Once again we’re back at square one, and the question of the authority for their Christian faith and practice remains unanswered. Until the people who identify as Christian answer the authority question, they have no real basis to promote the Christian faith that they claim to possess.

The Holy Spirit reveals the truth to God’s elect, even though they may be unaware that He has revealed a particular truth to them. The truth just “dawns” on them.

Peter was not aware that it was God the Father who had revealed to him the truths that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Peter had to be told by the Lord Jesus that “flesh and blood did not reveal” these truths to him.

God gives elect believers the revealed truths they know through the Holy Spirit. Revealed truth is not separate from or different from God’s written word.

John writes, “These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” (1 John 2:26-27 KJV)

God did not reveal to Peter all truth at once. In the first moment of faith, God reveals salvation truths to His elect, but there are additional truths God will reveal when it’s time. His elect will learn even deeper and more profound Scriptural truths throughout their lives.

Although false teachings have attracted the attention of many professing Christians today, the Holy Spirit is faithful and will reveal the truth of God’s written word to His elect.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10:27-29 KJV)
