Answer

We need to learn the Word of God. We cannot just rely on the help of the Holy Spirit without learning, because we know the Holy Spirit also used the Bible. The Holy Spirit speaks through our knowledge. When we read the Bible, we understand the meaning of the Holy Spirit. When we study the Word of God seriously and diligently, we can associate one part with the other, one verse with another, so there is an organic understanding, interconnected with each other. So, for me, it is very important to study the Scripture literally.
