20 Did the Holy Spirit contradict itself

This time Acts vs Acts

In the New Testament Acts of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit urged the apostle Paul:
To go to Jerusalem

But wait a minute!
In Acts, the Holy Spirit urged the disciples:
To tell Paul not to go to that city

In Acts the Holy Spirit compelled Paul to go to Jerusalem. So Paul set out on his journey

Acts 20:22 And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there.

But when Paul was en route, the Holy Spirit told the disciples to urge him not to go 

Acts 21:4 Through the Spirit they [disciples] urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.

Recap: Yes, Paul says the Spirit compelled him to go. But the identical Spirit had others advise him not to go. Thus Acts vs Acts.

Look it up:
Acts 20:22
