There have been many debates about what this first epistle from John is about, but I believe he makes his purpose statement clear. “These have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”
The Holy Spirit leads, guides, teaches, and instructs. But that instruction had better have the Word of God behind it and not just your or my experience. Our experiences must be weighted and measured by Scripture and wisdom.
