Verse of the Day (November 16, 2019) #BMSeminary – Illumination is the ministry of the Holy Spirit by which He causes Christians to understand the truths of God revealed in Scripture. The word conviction, meaning “cause to see,” is primarily used of the Spirit’s work in revealing sin in the unsaved (John 16:8). The word understanding is used of the Spirit’s work in revealing other truth in Scripture. Illustration: The psalmist recognized the need for supernatural aid in understanding the Scriptures and prayed that his eyes would be opened (v. 18). This would also be a good prayer for Christians today as they approach the Scriptures. Application: Since the Bible was written by holy men of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, it should also be read by holy men and women of God illumined by the Holy Spirit. (First Reference, Ps. 119:18; Primary Reference, Ps. 119:18; cf. Deut. 29:29.) (KJV Study Bible)
