Hebrews 1:1 KJV 1900
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hebrews 1:2–3 KJV 1900
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

1 Corinthians 3:2 KJV 1900
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
Hebrews 5:12–14 KJV 1900
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
John 16:12–13 KJV 1900
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Imperfect knowledge

Jesus says
++I have more to say
++I have more to tell you
++You cannot bear it

The walk of the Disciple

The Disciples
++Were trained by Jesus
++They watched how he lived
++They learned from the master teacher
++All they learned was limited

The Lesson

Jesus taught based upon
++The maturity of his disciples
++What they were able to carry

John 16:12 ...You cannot bear them now.

How did Jesus know this?
++Listened to the questions they ask?
++Watched how the handle situations?
Matthew 17:19–20 KJV 1900
Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Question 1: Why couldn't we cast him out?
++P-They thought they had the power.
++P-They had the wrong focus.
++Why couldn't _WE_ cast him out.
We will never do anything great for God
++until we loose our self
++until it is no longer about us
++It is not about us

A coming truth

John 16:13 KJV 1900
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
When the Spirit of truth comes
++He will lead you
++He will hear
++He will Speak
++He will show you things to come
Acts 1:8 KJV 1900
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
You
++shall receive power
++shall be witnesses of me
A Witness
++Tell what he saw
++Tells what he experienced
++Gives evidence of the truth
My witness will validate
++My presence
++My power
++Everywhere

The goal is not to bring his presence or power but to validate his work.

Acts 14:3 KJV 1900
Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
They
++Spake boldly in the Lord
++Gave testimony to the word of his grace
++Received signs and wonders at their hands
