Title: The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit
  • The Promise of the Father

The Holy Spirit
  • In this study, we will look at the premise for
    every believer to receive the Promise which is
    the Holy Spirit.
  • One of the key roles for the Holy Spirit is the
    confirmation that you are Gods Child and that
    you are forgiven and now belong to HIM

The Holy Spirit
  • For ye have not received the spirit of bondage
    again to fear but ye have received
  • the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba,
    Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with
    our spirit, that we are the children of God
  • Romans 815-17

The Holy Spirit
  • Jesus Himself introduced this reality
  • On the final and climactic day of the Feast,
    Jesus took his stand. He cried out, If anyone
    thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of
    living water will brim and spill out of the
    depths of anyone who believes in me this way,
    just as the Scripture says. (He said this in
    regard to the Spirit, whom those who believed in
    him were about to receive. The Spirit had not yet
    been given because Jesus had not yet been
  • John 737-39 Message

The Holy Spirit
  • Again Jesus does this just before the Cross
  • However, I am telling you nothing but the truth
    when I say it is profitable (good, expedient,
    advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if
    I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor,
    Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener,
    Standby) will not come to you into close
    fellowship with you but if I go away, I will
    send Him to you to be in close fellowship with
  • John 167 Amp

The Holy Spirit
  • And I will ask the Father, and He will give you
    another Comforter (Counsellor, Helper,
    Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and
    Standby), that He may remain with you forever
  • John 1416 Amp

The Holy Spirit
  • We can characterise the gift of the Holy Spirit
    by three distinctive features
  • Personal
  • Permanent
  • Indwelling

The Holy Spirit
  • In His final charge before His departure, Jesus
  • Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you
    but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are
    endued with power from on high.
  • Luke 2449

The Holy Spirit
  • There are around 7,000 distinct promises in the
    Bible yet our Lord is singling out one??!!

The Holy Spirit
  • Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law,
    having become a curse for us (for it is written,
    Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree), 14
    that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the
    Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive
    the promise of the Spirit through faith.
  • Galatians 313-14

The Holy Spirit
  • On the Day of Pentecost, Peter echoes similar
  • Then Peter said to them, Repent, and let every
    one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus
    Christ for the remission of sins and you shall
    receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the
    promise is to you and to your children, and to
    all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God
    will call.
  • Acts 238

The Holy Spirit
  • The Promise to Abraham
  • I will bless you...
  • And you shall be a blessing...
  • And in you all the families of the earth shall be
  • Genesis 122-3

The Holy Spirit
  • It was to purchase this blessing, promised to the
    seed of Abraham, that Jesus our Lord shed His
    precious blood on the Cross!
  • But Christ came as High Priest of the good things
    to come, with the greater and more perfect
    tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of
    this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and
    calves, but with His own blood He entered the
    Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained
    eternal redemption.
  • Heb 911-12

The Holy Spirit
  • The Blood speaks
  • And to Jesus, the Mediator (Go-between, Agent) of
    a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which
    speaks of mercy, a better and nobler and more
    gracious message than the blood of Abel which
    cried out for vengeance.
  • Hebrews 1224

The Holy Spirit
  • The Spirit Witnesses
  • This is He who came by water and bloodJesus
    Christ not only by water, but by water and
    blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness,
    because the Spirit is truth.
  • 1 John 56

The Holy Spirit
  • Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God,
    and having received from the Father the promise
    of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you
    now see and hear.
  • Acts 233

The Holy Spirit
  • The Spirit Testifies!
  • The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit
    that we are children of God, NKJV
  • The Spirit Himself thus testifies together with
    our own spirit, assuring us that we are
    children of God. Amp
  • And the Spirit himself joins with our spirits to
    say we are Gods children. NCV
  • Romans 816

The Holy Spirit
  • You have been SEALED!
  • In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard
    the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation
    in whom also after that ye believed, ye were
    sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
  • Ephesians 113

The Holy Spirit
  • Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of
    the Spirit in our hearts.
  • 2 Corinthians 122
  • And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye
    are sealed unto the day of redemption.
  • Ephesians 430

The Holy Spirit
  • Thats why He is called The COMFORTER...
  • .....because the love of God is shed abroad in
    our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto
  • Romans 55
