2 The Holy Spirit Has Come Acts 2 is All About the Presence of God through the Spirit s Arrival
4 Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
6 The Tongues in Acts 2 Is the supernatural ability to speak in a foreign language
7 Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
8 Acts 2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
9 Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
10 Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
11 State the Obvious There is no difference between the Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit
12 Romans 8:9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
13 The Holy Spirit Is a gift to each and every believer in Jesus Christ and His Gospel
14 The Holy Spirit is God As much as the Father is God and the Son is God
15 Acts 5:3-4 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Spirit, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
16 In some bodies of Christ, the Holy Spirit is the most neglected member of the Trinity. But that could not be said in the early church.
17 What is the character and nature of the Holy Spirit s Work In the life of a believer?
18 #1 The Holy Spirit marks believers in Christ and His gospel as one of God s prized possessions
19 Ephesians 1:13 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,
20 Ancient Seals that Show Ownership
21 Ephesians 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. earnest is a guarantee
22 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal [of ownership] on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee [down payment].
23 1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?
24 #2 The Holy Spirit convicts the world of Sin John 16:8
25 John 16:5-8 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove [convict] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
26 Is the Holy Spirit s continual role of convicting the world of sin the reason why we have global moral code?
27 How would a Darwinian Evolutionist explain a universal moral code? Ask?
28 There is a REASON why the Holy Spirit Is called the HOLY Spirit the chief attribute of God is His Holiness
29 Isaiah 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
30 #3 The Holy Spirit regenerates (creates life) the believing unbeliever into a new creature in Christ Titus 3:5 John 3
31 Ephesians 2:1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,
32 Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
33 John 3:5-6 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
34 John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
35 #4 The Holy Spirit leads, guides, and directs the believer Romans 8:14
36 Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
37 Galatians 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Matthew 4:1
38 Matthew 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
39 The Holy Spirit leads us to Love Be Kind Be Holy Be Joyful Resist Temptation Have Faith Witness Study the Word Remain Faithful Forgive Others Work Use our Gifts Pray Glorify God Praise God Worship Forgive Ourselves Trust in the Lord Be Thankful Encourage Others Intercede for Others Control our Tongue Be Gracious Extend Mercy Keep our Word Do God s Will Be Content Be Honest Humble Ourselves Repent Persevere Be Patient Say I am sorry.
40 The Spirit uses the Book He wrote to guide believers by means of illumination
41 #5 The Spirit is the agent that places us in the family of God Romans 8:15
42 Romans 8:15 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.
43 The Holy Spirit Seals (marks) the believer Creates spiritual life or regenerates Convicts the world of sin Leads the believer Places us in the family of God
44 #6 The Holy Spirit actively works to make us Holy Ezekiel 36 1 Corinthians 6:11
45 Ezekiel 36:26-27 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
46 Ezekiel 36:27 (ESV) And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.
47 1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
49 Baptism of Fire (Matt 3:11) Fire is presented as a purifying agent in the Bible
50 In the same way the Holy Spirit empowered Christ to resist temptation the same Spirit lives in us
51 Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
52 Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance [self-control]: against such there is no law.
53 #7 The Spirit empowers the believer to witness Acts 1:8
54 Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
55 The Holy Spirit Seals (marks) the believer Creates spiritual life or regenerates Convicts the world of sin Leads the believer Places us in the family of God Actively works to make us holy Empowers us to witness
56 #8 The Holy Spirit Gives Each Believer 1 or more Spiritual Gifts
57 1 Corinthians 12:11 (ESV) All these [spiritual gifts] are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
59 Each and every believer should not be content until they know their gifts and are using them for the cause of Christ in the body of Christ!
60 #9 The Holy Spirit Prays with and for me Romans 8:26
61 Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
62 #10 The Holy Spirit is a comforter, advocate, helper, and counselor to each and every believer. John 14
63 The Holy Spirit Seals (marks) the believer Creates spiritual life or regenerates Convicts the world of sin Leads the believer Places us in the family of God Actively works to make us holy Empowers us to witness Dispenses Spiritual Gifts Prays with and for me Is a helps believers do the will of their Heavenly Father
