Led By The Spirit by Jim Elliff is a short, but well-argued, satisfying and scriptural examination of how a believer can know and understand the will of God. It is also practical, having been based on the author's own experience in being what he refers to as an illuminist - a person who, when confronted by difficult decisions in life, seeks guidance from God by getting a series of impressions which he believes come as God directly impacts the spirit.

Led By The Spirit: How the Holy Spirit Guides the Believer. April 15, 1999, Joshua Press. Paperback in English.

Jim Elliff’s book is an extremely well-written and well-argued study of how the Holy Spirit guides the believer. Elliff speaks to the neo-mystical ideas that are taking hold among many evangelical Christians. Belief that God often gives subjective, almost verbal impressions to His people about particular circumstances in their lives is quite common among Christians today. It is taught in the popular study Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby and also in the numerous books by Jennifer Kennedy Dean

Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would come and guide the believer into all truth. The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.

Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would come and guide the believer into all truth. The work of the Holy Spirit illuminates the heart and mind of the believer to the things of Jesus Christ. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was an easy read, and yet clarified the role of the Holy Spirit in guiding us through the scriptures. Jim Eliff provided a clear, Biblical and balanced understanding of how God directs us. He helps us understand how to discern if specific Bible passages are speaking directly to us, or if we are taking scripture out of context and applying it in our lives based on our “feelings”. With mysticism and new-age thinking creeping into Christianity, we need to be careful not to allow our feelings to override God’s intended message and direction for us through His Word.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to understand how God’s Word directs us, guides us and illuminates our interpretation of His intended meaning. It also helps one understand that Bible verses are to be read and understood in the context in which they are written and not be misapplied, based on some inner experience or perceived message we think we’re getting directly from God through His Word.

I hope this review is helpful to those who are trying to apply scripture to their lives.

The Holy Spirit is more than experiences -- He is inside every believer waiting for us to rely on Him for guidance. Some people feel they are not baptized in the Spirit if they don't possess what they think should be their spiritual gift. The Holy Spirit determines who gets what gift and He determines when that gift is manifested. If you are truly born again, never feel you are "less than" because you don't have a certain spiritual gift. He knows.

Was a little too much for what needed to be said.

The author provides very a very helpful contrast between reading the Bible as some kind of magic ritual and reading what the Holy Spirit intended to communicate through the words written by the authors.

Led By The Spirit by Jim Elliff is a short, but well-argued, satisfying and scriptural examination of how a believer can know and understand the will of God. It is also practical, having been based on the author's own experience in being what he refers to as an illuminist - a person who, when confronted by difficult decisions in life, seeks guidance from God by getting a series of impressions which he believes come as God directly impacts the spirit. This belief is taught by most evangelical leaders today, though perhaps the most notable of these is Richard Blackaby in his book Experiencing God. While Elliff does not rule out such forms of communication altogether, he does teach that there is no reason to believe that such means of communication are normative for Christians today. These types of communication are inherently subjective, meaning that there can always be an element of doubt in the recipients mind about whether he really heard God's voice or merely his own mind. A quote from George Whitefield is helpful to understand this: "God may use the sincere individual who gets his guidance the illuminist's way. He may bless him. He may honour his faith more than his method. I am quite sure that God always condescends to our imperfections. And if there is immaturity, we must realize that God will often use in our zealous immaturity what he disallows in our maturity...The Great Awakening preacher, George Whitefield (1714-1770), who had such tendencies in his earlier days, later commented, "I am a man of like passions with others, and consequently may have sometimes mistaken nature for grace, imagination for revelation." He put away his illuministic patterns as he grew in Christ. Yet, it is important to note that he was used in those earlier days just as dramatically as in later life." (page 35)

The author concludes that we are to submit any impressions we may have to Scripture which is the only infallible guide we have been given by God. Scripture contains all we need to make decisions in life and to know what God's will is for us. The most important concept in the book "sanctified reasoning" which is where we, as increasingly sanctified followers of Christ, make decisions based on the Word of God. The Holy Spirit who indwells us and is continually renewing our will, helps us make decisions that honor and glorify God. Rather than trust in impressions and voices, we are to trust the Spirit's work in the mind and will.

The book is only 46 pages long and is written at a level that even young people and new believers will be comfortable with. I highly recommend it. In the same vein I also recommend Decisions, Decisions by Dave Swavely and Guidance And The Voice of God by Jensen and Payne.
