4 Three Distinct Gifts of the Holy Spirit Baptism of the Holy Spirit Miraculous Gifts of the Holy Spirit The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit

5 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38)

6 Acts 2:38 NKJV 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.

7 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts (Acts 8:13-18)

8 Acts 8:13-22 NKJV Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done. 14 Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, 15 who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. 16 For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

9 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts The Spirit in us (Rom. 5:5; 8:9,11,26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 3:2; 4:6; Phil. 2:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. 6:4; 1 John 3:24; 4:13)

10 Romans 5:5 NKJV Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

11 Romans 8:9-11 NKJV But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 Romans 8:26-27 NKJV Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

13 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NKJV 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

14 Galatians 4:6-7 NKJV And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!" 7 Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

15 Philippians 2:1-2 NKJV Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

16 Hebrews 6:4-6 NKJV For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

17 1 John 3:24 NKJV Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.

18 1 John 4:13 NKJV By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

19 Incorrect Views of the Spirit in Us Making us act against our own will Revealing God s will to us apart from the Scriptures Giving us special instructions that are only for us Illuminating or otherwise directing and confirming our understanding of Scriptures Confirming our relationship with God through supernatural feelings

20 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts The Spirit in us (Rom. 5:5; 8:9,11, 26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 3:2; 4:6; Phil. 2:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. 6:4; 1 John 3:24; 4:13) The Holy Spirit dwells in us Like the Father and Son 1 John 4:12-16; John 17:21-23

21 John 17:21-23 NKJV that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

22 1 John 4:12-16 NKJV No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

23 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts The Spirit in us (Rom. 5:5; 8:9,11, 26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 3:2; 4:6; Phil. 2:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. 6:4; 1 John 3:24; 4:13) The Holy Spirit dwells in us Like the Father and Son 1 John 4:12-16; John 17:21-23 Like a vine dwells in a branch John 15:4-5

24 John 15:4-5 NKJV Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

25 John 15:4-5 NKJV Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

26 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts The Spirit in us (Rom. 5:5; 8:9,11, 26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 3:2; 4:6; Phil. 2:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. 6:4; 1 John 3:24; 4:13) The Holy Spirit dwells in us Like the Father and Son 1 John 4:12-16; John 17:21-23 Like a vine dwells in a branch John 15:4-5 The role of the word Eph. 5:18-19; Col. 3:16; John 15:4, 7; 14:24

27 The Spirit and the Word Ephesians 5:18-19 NKJV And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, Colossians 3:16 NKJV Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

28 John 15:4-7 NKJV Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

29 John 14:22-23 NKJV Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?" 23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

30 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts The Spirit in us (Rom. 5:5; 8:9,11, 26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 3:2; 4:6; Phil. 2:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. 6:4; 1 John 3:24; 4:13) The Holy Spirit dwells in us Like the Father and Son 1 John 4:12-16; John 17:21-23 Like a vine dwells in a branch John 15:4-5 The role of the word Eph. 5:18-19; Col. 3:16; John 15:4, 7; 14:24 Demonstrated by fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:16-26)

31 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 NKJV 21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, 22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

32 Ephesians 1:13-14 NKJV In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

33 Romans 8:13-14 NKJV For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

34 Galatians 5:16-25 NKJV I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

35 Galatians 5:16-25 NKJV 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

36 Galatians 5:16-25 NKJV 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

37 The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit A promise to all who obey the gospel (Acts 2:38) Different from H.S. Baptism Different from miraculous spiritual gifts The Spirit in us (Rom. 5:5; 8:9,11, 26-27; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 3:2; 4:6; Phil. 2:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. 6:4; 1 John 3:24; 4:13) The Holy Spirit dwells in us Like the Father and Son 1 John 4:12-16; John 17:21-23 Like a vine dwells in a branch John 15:4-5 The role of the word Eph. 5:18-19; Col. 3:16; John 15:4, 7; 14:24 Demonstrated by fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:16-26) Duration as long and as often as men and women obey the gospel (Acts 2:38)

38 Acts 2:38 NKJV 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.
