(This lesson is from a message by the great preacher, Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834 - 1892). Do you know the communion of the Holy Ghost? The Scripture tells us everything we need to know about this amazing gift of the Holy Spirit sent to us from our heavenly Father to enable us to become and do what He desires. SCRIPTURE: Acts 19:1-2 and John 14:16-18 NASB (9-4-05). We read in Isa. Here knowledge is ascribed to the Holy Spirit. He is an ever present Comforter. Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. Of course, the Spirit works through believers to accomplish this. The Holy Spirit is complete in Himself and His work is always completed. This would be impossible if the Holy Spirit were not God. There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers; He shares the strengths of God the Father and Jesus, such as omniscience, omnipotence, and eternality. We dwell often upon the love of God the Father. Any entity that thinks and feels and wills is a person. The Holy Spirit has knowledge. Here it is a Person who takes the direction of the conduct of Paul and his companions and a Person whose authority they recognized and to whom they instantly submit. 63:10). He is portrayed as a thinking being, a being who has a mind, an emotional being, and a volitional (or choosing) being. The Holy Spirit's name describes his chief attribute: He is a perfectly holy and spotless God, free of any sin or darkness. But if we once grasp the thought that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person of infinite majesty, glory and holiness and power, who in marvellous condescension has come into our hearts to make His abode there and take possession of our lives and make use of them, it will put us in the dust and keep us in the dust. iv.6 we read, "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father." To correctly diagnose a spiritual disease requires perfect wisdom. If this Christian woman had been questioned in regard to her doctrine, she would doubtless have said that she believed that there were three Persons in the Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but a theological confession is one thing, a practical realization of the truth we confess is quite another. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy spirit from me. Eph. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would be sent to come alongside us, (John 15:26). We read in Rom. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Isaiah cited an example of how Israel “rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit” (Isa. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11  but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. 22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. First, the Holy Spirit is Divine–He is God/Deity. He is a faithful Comforter. viii.16.). He grieves, He knows, He is eternal, He encourages, He gives understanding, He gives peace, He comforts, He directs, and He can be prayed to. ix.20, "Thou gavest also Thy good Spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not Thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst." Our Lord had announced to the disciples that He was about to leave them. Bible Verses about the Spirit - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness… Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the… God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him… If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit… For God hath not given us the spirit … The former conception is utterly heathenish, not essentially different from the thought of the African fetich worshipper who has his god whom he uses. To comfort them the Lord tells them that they shall not be left alone, that in leaving them He was going to the Father and that He would pray the Father and He would give them another Comforter to take the place of Himself during His absence. There is only one God and He is the third divine person of the Trinity. 2:11-14, 2 Cor. The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity–equal with the Father and Son in essence. Even as Christians, its possible for us to be unaware of one of Gods most awesome blessings. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever. Theoretically most of us believe this but do we, in our real thought of Him and in our practical attitude towards Him treat Him as if He were indeed a Person? 2:13), 6. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. (1 Cor. A case for the King James Version Randy White. The Bible speaks of the Holy Spirit as all knowing, everywhere present, all-powerful, and eternal. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Will you receive Him today? Who would think of calling himself a Christian who passed a day without meditating on the love of his Saviour, but how often have we meditated upon "the love of the Spirit"? The position of the believer is indeed one of perfect security with these two Divine Persons praying for him. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you." As such, it also means God who is active and present spiritually in the world. The Holy Spirit Affirms Jesus. 1.

The Holy Spirit has knowledge. viii.27, "And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." In one sense this is true (for modern readers), but in another, there is a real advantage of speaking of the Holy Ghost rather than the Holy Spirit. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. He is an active Comforter. He intercedes for us, reminding us of God's great promises and His grace. One of the most characteristic and distinctive doctrines of the Christian faith is that of the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit. xiii.14), but while you hear it, do you take in the significance of it? xv.30, "Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me." Herein lies the whole secret of a real Christian life, a life of liberty and joy and power and fullness. Although we may know weve been saved, we might not realize that the Holy Spirit came to live within us at that moment. Yet we owe our salvation just as truly to the love of the Spirit as we do to the love of the Father and the love of the Son. The Christian life is the life of the Lord Jesus reproduced in us by the Holy Spirit. We know that, in the Bible, seven is the number of completion, or perfection, and these seven different attributes of the Holy Spirit are indeed perfect and complete. We can depend on these wonderful attributes of the Holy Spirit, all the time, in every circumstance. TITLE: Characteristics of the Holy Spirit INTRODUCTION: The Word Characteristic according to the English Thesaurus means to have uniqueness; and distinctiveness.

The holy spirit is the same force that God used to create the universe. Psalm 51:11 KJV (The Holy Spirit, reverenced.) And He that searches the hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. We never have to send for Him, for He is always right there with us. He will never leave us or forsake us, but instead actively leads and guides us to the perfect will of the Father. He is a safe Comforter. This sin is also the unpardonable sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin. ix.20, "Thou gavest also Thy good Spirit to instruct them." I know of no thought that will help one more than this to lead a holy life and to walk softly in the presence of the holy One. ", "Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, World without end, Amen.". Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. ii.7, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God." I. There is wondrous comfort in the thought that every true believer has two Divine Persons praying for him, Jesus Christ, the Son who was once upon this earth, who knows all about our temptations, who can be touched with the feeling of our infirmities and who is now ascended to the right hand of the Father and in that place of authority and power ever lives to make intercession for us (Heb. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. (See also Rom. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE ARE SEEN IN OUR LORD ’S TEACHING ON THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. Here we are told that the Holy Spirit is "done despite unto" ("treated with contumely" -- Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament). Sin cannot separate us from His love; no, indeed, He loved us while we were still dead in our sins. There are at least four distinct lines of proof in the Bible that the Holy Spirit is a person. If it had not been for the love of Jesus Christ, the eternal Word of God, looking upon me in my utter ruin and in obedience to the Father, putting aside all the glory of heaven for all the shame of earth and taking my place, the place of the curse, upon the cross of Calvary and pouring out His life utterly for me, I would have been in hell to-day. A person operating under the control of this spirit will never be able to … For example, we read in 1 Cor. The Holy Spirit is called by many names in the Bible.

Likewise, he is all-loving, forgiving, merciful and just. The Holy Spirit is also represented as the Leader and Guide of the children of God. As a matter of course, the doctrine of the personality of the Holy Spirit is not as fully developed in the Old Testament as in the New. If the Holy Spirit is a divine person, worthy to receive our adoration, our faith and our love, and we do not know and recognize Him as such, then we are robbing a divine Being of … Bible Verses about the Holy Spirit - But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will… And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed… But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come… Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the… Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace… Is it possible that Jesus Christ could have used such language if the other Comforter who was coming to take His place was only an impersonal influence or power? All of our goodness could never make Him love us more, and all of our sin can never make Him love us any less. 6) The Holy Spirit is not an “IT.” DISCUSSION: Who is the Holy Spirit? A treatment is predicated to the Holy Spirit that could only be predicated of a Person. The Holy Spirit has been given to us, and He began overflowing out of Israel into the nations in a big way on the Day of Pentecost 2,000 years ago. 1 Corinthians 12 King James Version (KJV).

A There is one God manifested in three … Thousands and tens of thousands of men and women can testify to the blessing that has come into their own lives as they have come to know the Holy Spirit, not merely as a gracious influence (emanating, it is true, from God) but as a real Person, just as real as Jesus Christ Himself, an ever-present, loving Friend and mighty Helper, who is not only always by their side but dwells in their heart every day and every hour and who is ready to undertake for them in every emergency of life. 10:29). The Holy Spirit is also represented as a Person who has authority to command men in their service of Jesus Christ. The reader would do well to stop and ponder those five words, "the love of the Spirit." Like Job's friends, people give us wrong advice, just like a doctor can dispense wrong medicine. The Holy Spirit Affirms Jesus. And in the Old Testament, Neh. But there is One who is holier than any mother, One who is more sensitive against sin than the purest woman who ever walked this earth, and who loves us as even no mother ever loved, and this One dwells in our hearts, if we are really Christians, and He sees every act we do by day or under cover of the night; He hears every word we utter in public or in private; He sees every thought we entertain, He beholds every fancy and imagination that is permitted even a momentary lodgment in our mind, and if there is anything unholy, impure, selfish, mean, petty, unkind, harsh, unjust, or in anywise evil in act or word or thought or fancy, He is grieved by it. Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit is signifying this, that the way into the holy place has not yet been disclosed while the outer tabernacle is still standing, 1 John 2:20-27. The Holy Spirit is a loving Comforter. This distinction is of fundamental importance in our getting into right relations with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is also represented in the Scripture as one who prays. It is the subject of our daily and constant thought. Not merely a Divine influence producing in our own hearts the assurance of our sonship but one who cries out in our hearts, who bears witness together with our spirit that we are sons of God. The Holy Spirit is treated on an equal basis with God the Father and God the Son. Further still than this the Holy Spirit is represented as the One who is the supreme authority in the church, who calls men to work and appoints them to office. It is of the highest importance from the standpoint of experience that we know the Holy Spirit as a person.

What a glorious Holy Spirit—the Spirit of the Father and the Spirit of the Son! Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy spirit from me. (1 Cor.
