The Holy Spirit


Article Archive

Ephesians 4:30 ..... And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and probably the least understood member of the Godhead.  Christians can easily identify with God the Father and His Son, Jesus.  The Holy Spirit however without a body and a personal name. seems distant to far too many, yet he dwells inside every true believer ( 1 Corinthians 3:16 ) and is a constant companion in the walk of faith.

The Holy Spirit is mentioned approximately 250 times in the New Testament and only approximately 100 times in the Old Testament.

When King David was anointed, "the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward" ( 1 Samuel 16:13 )

In Psalms 51:11 King David cried and agonizing cry to the Lord.  "Do not cast me away from thy presence4, and do not take thy Holy Spirit from me".

In 1 John 4:13 we read: "This is how we know that we live in Him and he is in us: He has given us of His Spirit".

Keep in mind that the Holy Spirit will not do all the work for us.  We have our responsibility to do our part.  We must continue in reading the Holy Word ( the Bible) and we must continue in Prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to show us the truth of God's Word and teach us how to live according to the Word of God.

The Holy Spirit "Will never prompt us to do anything that goes against Scripture".  Sometimes  people try to justify their actions by saying that "My conscience told me...", We need to learn the difference between our conscience and the prompting of the Holy Spirit, and the way to judge this is by the Holy Word of God.

The Holy Spirit was first mentioned in the SECOND verse of the Bible.  Genesis 1:2 , Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

The Holy Spirit caused the Virgin Mary to conceive. Matthew 1:20

At the Baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus like a dove.

On the day of Pentecost, He rested like tongues of fire on the apostles.

Jesus commanded His followers to baptize people in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit serves as teacher, counselor, comforter, strengthener, inspirationalist, revealer of the Scriptures, convincer of sin, caller of ministers and intercessor in prayer by helping us to pray.

The Holy Spirit counsels and encourages Christians as the battle temptations of the world and the forces of Satan.

Remember this verse:  1 Thessalonians 5:19 :  " Quench not the Spirit "

God's Blessings my friends,
Pastor Wise
