1 Holy Spirit Living Grounded Book 2 Chapter 5 Share our faith and Disciple another no greater call Chapters 1-4 in book 2 HS is intimately involved in each of these topics New Life in Christ Spiritual rebirth Jn 3:5 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God Our new identity 2 Cor 5:17 - Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Battling the world, the flesh and the devil John 14:17 Gal 5:17 Spirit of Truth Wages war against my flesh Dealing with temptation Rom 1:4 Spirit of Holiness Who is the HS? (Attributes) HS is NOT: An it, an influence, energy source, impersonal, a ghost, HS is fully God We teach that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, eternal, underived, possessing all the divine attributes, and that in these He is coequal and consubstantial with the Father and the Son

2 Holy Spirit SPIRIT = Pneuma - spirit, Spirit, wind or breath Divine attributes Eternal Hebrews 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Omnipresent Psalm 139:7-8 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. All truth Spirit of Truth Jn Cor 2:11 the thoughts of God Isaiah 40:13-14 Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, Or as His counselor has informed Him? With whom did He consult and who gave Him understanding? And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge And informed Him of the way of understanding? Omnipotent Creation Gen 1:2 Spirit of God JC Col 1:16 by Him all things were created In the Believer Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Spirit of Holiness Rom 1:4 Spirit of Glory 1 Pet 4:4 Life giving 2 Cor 3:6

3 Person Mind Rom 8:27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Will 1 Cor 12:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills. Emotions Eph 4:30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Underived not a created being He is eternal Coequal and consubstantial with the Father and the Son >>> Trinity Not found in the Bible Theological term = TRI UNITY Father Son HS One God in 3 distinct persons each fully God There is ONE God Deut 6:4 (the Shema = HEAR Mot important prayer in Judaism) Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! "LORD" = in Hebrew = Yahweh Jehovah (The existing One) Ex 20:2 I am the Lord your God I = singular Lord = Jehovah (The existing One) God (Elohim) plural God = plural (3 persons of the Trinity represented) Gen 1:1 Elohim = plural

4 Gen 1:26 Let US make man in Our image according to Our likeness Godhead working in unison Gen 3:22 Behold, the man has become like one of US,. Equal to God (one verse) Mat 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit 2 Cor 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. Names / Titles of Deity Lord, the Spirit 2 Cor 3:18 Spirit of God Gen 1:2, Rom 8:9 Spirit of your Father Mat 10:20 Spirit of the living God 2 Cor 3:3 Spirit of Jesus Acts 16:7 Spirit of His Son Gal 4:6 Spirit of Jesus Christ Phil 1:19 All point to the HS as being fully God Jn 5:23 JC said - He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him We should honor the Holy Spirit as we do the Father and the Son Symbols / Images given in the Bible Helper one called along side - advocate A deposit / seal - security Another Counselor (Allos another of the same kind) Breath of the almighty

5 Holy One The gift Voice of the Lord, Voice of the Almighty Fire 1 Thes 5:19 Do not quench the Spirit; Extinguish, suppress, stifle The fire of God s Spirit is not to be doused with sin Ex Pour a bucket of water on a fire River of Living water 7 days feasts of booths / tabernacles invitation on 7 th day Water represented the blessing of adequate water for their crops John 7:38-39 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water. But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. Continuous river, teaming with life Who has the HS? V38 He who believes in me = each born again believer God is not impartial >>> BUT there is a condition = faith Rom 8:9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him When After Jesus is glorified = resurrected with a glorified body

6 Eph 1:13 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, What does the Holy Spirit do? 3 Primary ministries Glorify Jesus Christ Jn 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. Spiritual Rebirth / Regeneration Spirit of God places the believer into union with Christ and into union with other believers in the body of Christ at the moment of salvation. 1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. Transformation / Sanctification (generate Christ-likeness) 1 Cor 2:10-13 but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words Searches all things (takes what is Christ s and discloses it) All that the Father has is Christ s All that is Christ s is the HS He takes of Christ V13 God s wisdom taught by the HS

7 Superintended the writing of Scripture (OT and NT) 2 Pet 1:20-21 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. Moved along Wind in the sail of a ship (power)

8 Illuminates as I read the Bible Produces fruit in my life In Jesus Christ s life through the power of the HS Birth Lk 1:35 Baptism Mat 3 Temptation Lead and ministered at the end of the 40 days God Anointed Him with HS & power Acts 10:38 Teaching through Christ Jn 3:34 Death Heb 9:14 Resurrection (raised Jesus from the dead) Rom 8:11 The Trinity works in unison at all times The world Convicts of sin Jn 16:7-15 Calles sinners Eph 4:4 Regenerates John 3 Witnesses Acts 5:30-32 In the Believer Glorify Christ Indwells / temple Eph 5:18 Fills / empowers Seals security Produces fruit Gal 5 Loves me Rom 5:5 Gives gifts Rom 12 Illuminates / teaches

9 Prays for me Rom 8:26 Wages war against my flesh Gal 5:17 Comforts me Jn 14:16 Leads / guides Rom 8:14 Sanctifies Gal 3:???? Empowers me to witness Acts 1:8 Indwelling 1 Cor 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? Permanent 2 Cor 1:22 who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge. Eph 4:30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. BAPTISM of the HS that work whereby the Spirit of God places the believer into union with Christ and into union with other believers in the Body of Christ at the moment of salvation Rom 6:3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. In the Book of Acts 2 Both Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Filling of the Holy Spirit occur at the same time. Nowhere else is it seen. Filling of the HS Commanded Eph 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, for this is dissipation, but be filled with the Holy Spirit Q > How would one know if the Holy Spirit was working in someone s life? Spiritual hunger, spiritual questions, discernment

10 Rom 6:11-14 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. This is about a daily / moment-by-moment choice Proof Fruit of the Spirit To be filled with the Holy Spirit means that we allow him to occupy and control every area of our lives. How much of you does the Holy Spirit have? Eph 5:18-21 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ. Col 3:15-17 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father Where the Holy Spirit is Christ will be exalted Man & woman will be humbled Getting your house in order Rom 12:1-21 V1 type of offering in His temple V 3-8 How the HS will affect our service to others

11 V 9-21 List exhortation s how to live a Spirit-filled life Gal 5:16-25 v16 Walk by v 18 led by the Spirit continual action / habitual lifestyle Flesh vs. the Spirit opposition to one another FRUIT Gal 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Fruit for those who posses the Spirit of God Fruit is produced by the Spirit Singular = fruit 9 Godly characteristics or attitudes that characterized the life of the believer & commanded in the NT Agape = love of choice Joy happiness based on God s promises not good circumstances Peace Inner calm confidence in my relationship with God Patience ability to endure hurt from others Kindness Concern for others handle with care Goodness Moral or spiritual excellence Faithfulness Loyalty Gentleness meekness Humble gentle attitude Self-control Restraint of passions and appetites

12 No Law Walking and fruit producing believer satisfies God no law can do this What does Spiritual fruit look like on a daily basis? Yield to God when you awake Obedience to His Word This means I read His Word

13 I keep short accounts with God 1 Jn 1:9 Let no unwholesome word Jn 7:24 View the world through a Biblical lens How are we to live Purity Sexual immorality Natural man Spiritual man Old Self New self Natural Man Does not accept God s teaching Foolishness to him Cannot understand them because he is spiritually dead Unbeliever can recognize a Christian but cannot evaluate their true nature as a spiritual being who has been transformed into a child of God No supernatural life No (Godly) wisdom Spiritual Man Appraises all thing (through a spiritual lens) Has the mind of the Lord (Isa 40:13) Can know the thoughts of the Lord (friend) Conclusion We must Acknowledge the person of the HS daily in our lives Elevate the person of the HS in our daily lives

14 Call on Him as we would the Father / Son Pray to Him as we would the Father / Son Live in His power not my flesh
