The Holy Spirit

1. It effects the new birth(I Pet. 1: 23).

2. The word sanctifies (John 17: 17).

3. The word convicts (Tit. 1: 9).

4. The word comforts (I Thes. 4: 18).

5. Teaches (2 Tim. 3: 16, 17).

6. Saves (Jas. 1: 21).

7. Purifies (I Pet. 1:23).

What the word

does:

Holy Spirit

slide37

The Holy Spirit

When the same action is ascribed to an instrument and a person, it is axiomatic that the person achieves the action through the specific instrument.  A. Hence, the Holy Spirit (the "person" or being) works through the word. Any doctrine that presents the Holy Spirit in the mentioned matters working outside of the word and eliminating the need of the word is patently false.    a. In the recorded instances of salvation, the word was preached (Acts 2: 14-47 ff.). To resist the word is tantamount to resisting the Holy Spirit (Acts 7: 51-53).

slide38

The Holy Spirit

The truth of the matter is, every case of salvation today is commenced, continued, and shall be consummated by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit, however, does not work irresistibly, mysteriously, and directly. He works through the word of God, the seed of the kingdom (Luke. 8: 11). In addition, the Holy Spirit has an active role in the prayer of the saved, along with Jesus, the Mediator (Rom. 8: 26, cp. I Tim. 2: 5).

slide39

The Holy Spirit

Does the Spirit dwell in the Christian?

The scriptures teach that the Father dwells in the Christian (I John 4: 12, 13). The Son and the Holy Spirit are also said to dwell in the Christian (Eph. 3: 17; I Cor. 6: 19). It is important that we notice that the scriptures also teach that the Christian dwells in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (I Jn. 4: 16; Gal. 3: 27; Rom. 8: 9).

slide40

The Holy Spirit

Does the Spirit dwell in the Christian?

Those who contend for the personal and bodily indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the body of the believer must consistently contend for the personal and bodily indwelling of the Father and the Son in the body of the Christian. Moreover, to be consistent, they must argue for the Christian personally and bodily indwelling the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

slide41

The Holy Spirit

The truth of the matter is the scriptures do not teach the bodily and direct indwelling of the Spirit. To abide or dwell in often simply denotes a relationship and acceptance. The Father and the Son dwell in the Christian through the word (2 John. 9). Paul taught, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly…" (Col. 3: 16). In the parallel verse, the same writer said, "…but be filled with the Spirit" (Eph. 5: 18).

slide42

The Holy Spirit

Hence, the Spirit also dwells in the Christian through the agency of the word. Besides, the view of the personal and bodily indwelling of deity in the body of the Christian is a pantheistic concept of God. God is "bodily" in heaven, but his presence is everywhere and he influences men on earth (cp. 2 Chroni. 6: 21, 23; Ps. 139: 7ff.).

The Holy Spirit

The gift of the Holy Spirit.

"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2: 38).

slide45

The Holy Spirit

The prominent views relative to the meaning of the gift of the Holy Spirit may be simply mentioned as follows: (1). The Holy Spirit as a person is meant, hence, they were promised the direct, personal, and bodily indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Those who hold this view may be divided into two groups, those who contend that by virtue of the personal indwelling, miracle working ability is resident, and those who do not contend in miracle working capability.

slide46

The Holy Spirit

(2). Others believe the gift of the Holy Spirit refers to something the Spirit gives, the Abrahamic promise of old that involved all the nations of the earth being blessed through Abraham (Gen. 12: 3, Gal. 3: 29).

slide47

The Holy Spirit

If the gift of the Holy Spirit entails the miraculous, as some insist, then those who were scripturally baptized should have demonstrated miracle working ability by virtue of the gift of the Holy Spirit. However, this was not the case. About three thousand were baptized and did receive the remission of their sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit, but we only read of the apostles performing miracles (Acts 2: 43). In fact, subsequent to the people receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, we only read of the apostles performing miracles (Acts 4: 16, 33, 5: 12).

slide48

The Holy Spirit

It is not until Acts 6: 8 that we read of one other than an apostle performing miracles. It will be appreciated that just prior to the statement of Stephen performing miracles, it was said, "…they (apostles, dm) laid their hands of them" (Acts 6: 6). Please remember the historian's words: "Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Spirit was given…" (Acts 8: 17, 18).

slide49

The Holy Spirit

The Christians at Rome had received the gift of the Holy Spirit upon baptism (Acts 2: 38, 39). Yet, they did not possess miracle working ability. I say this because one reason Paul wanted to journey to Rome was, "For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established" (Rom. 1: 11, see chapter 6).

slide50

The Holy Spirit

14: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith…. 16: Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.…27: For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29: And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Gal. 3).

slide51

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit

The gift of the Spirit is universal and is eternal life and all associated with it, the fulfillment of the promise made to Abraham. It is realized in Christ (Acts 2: 39, 3: 19).

The Holy Spirit

Conclusion:

Alas, there is much ignorance regarding the Holy Spirit, his being, place the Godhead, his work in New Testament times, and His work today. Much needless superstition, mysticism, and pantheism abound.
