2 The Holy Spirit in the Letters: Attribute Passage Declaration Relationship with Jesus and the Father declares Jesus as Son of God searches deep things of God Holy Spirit = God s love for man; OUR INTERCESSOR help in our weaknesses Romans 1:4 2:10 2:11 3:17 1Timothy 3:16 1Peter 1:11 1John 5:6 Romans 5:5 Romans 8:27 Romans 8:26 5:5 13:14 Galatians 3:14 Ephesians 2:18 Ephesians 2:22 Jesus was declared Son of God with power through his resurrection this was also the Holy Spirit s work these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. This is the one who came by water and blood Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. God s love for man Holy Spirit is God s love poured into our hearts given to us And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God s people in accordance with the will of God. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. 2

3 Ephesians 3:16 Hebrews 9:8 Hebrews 9:14 Hebrews 10:15 1Peter 1:12 1Peter 3:18 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still functioning. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things. For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. Status of man CHANGED! a true Jew Romans 2:29 Being a Jew is to be one inwardly and circumcised in the heart through the Holy Spirit God is pleased with this state a new way = Romans 7:6 We serve in the new way through the Holy Spirit children of God Romans 8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. adopted children Romans 8:15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to son-ship. And by him we cry, Abba, Father. Galatians 4:6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, Abba, Father. waiting for the Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God s redemption of our children. bodies Romans 8:23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to son-ship, the redemption of our bodies. no one can say, Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy 12:3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, Jesus be cursed, and no one can say, Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit. Spirit. 1:22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. no condemnation Romans 8:1-2 there is no more condemnation to those who are in Christ The law of the Holy Spirit gives life our minds Romans 8:5 Those who live by the Holy Spirit have their minds set on what 3

4 the Holy Spirit desires Romans 8:6 the mind governed by the Holy Spirit is life and peace, but the mind of those of the flesh is death we belong Romans 8:9 You belong to Christ if the Spirit of God dwells in you given life we live Romans 8:10 even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. joy and peace new hope we will understand what God has given us without the Holy Spirit = NATURAL MAN with the spirit SPIRITUAL MAN we are God s temple washed sanctified justified Romans 15:13 2:12 2:14 2:15 3:16 6:19 6:11 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, Don t you know that you yourselves are God s temple and that God s Spirit dwells in your midst? Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. Spirit gives life 3:6 3:18 Galatians 5:17 Galatians 5:22 Galatians 5:25 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 4

5 Ephesians 1:13 Ephesians 1:17 2Thessalonians 2:13 Titus 3:5 1Peter 1:2 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. [ Stand Firm ] But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance. righteousness, peace and joy proclaim gospel to the gentiles ability to proclaim the gospel of Christ brothers and sisters praying for each one s struggles message and preaching with power by the Spirit Spirit taught words same spirit gives different gifts Romans 14:17 Romans 15:16 Romans 15:19 Romans 15:30 2:4 2:13 12:4 12:7 The Kingdom of God For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles. He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ. I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit s power, This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, 5

6 a letter from Christ 12:8 to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing 12:9 by that one Spirit, For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body 12:13 whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, 14:1 14:2 14:12 14:37 3:3 Galatians 3:2 Galatians 5:5 Galatians 5:16 Galatians 5:18 Galatians 6:1 Galatians 6:8 Ephesians 3:5 especially prophecy. For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. If anyone thinks they are a prophet or otherwise gifted by the Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord s command. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. [ Doing Good to All ] Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God s holy apostles and prophets. Ephesians 4:3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 5:18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, Ephesians 5:19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, spiritual warfare Ephesians 6:17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which 6

7 reject the instruction = reject God Philippians 1:19 Philippians 1:27 Philippians 2:1 Philippians 3:3 Colossians 1:9 Colossians 3:16 1Thessalonians 1:5 1Thessalonians 1:6 1Thessalonians 4:8 1Thessalonians 5:19 1Timothy 4:1 2Timothy 1:7 2Timothy 1:14 Hebrews 2:4 Hebrews 3:7-8 Hebrews 6:4-6 is the word of God. for I know that through your prayers and God s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. [ Life Worthy of the Gospel ] Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel [ Imitating Christ s Humility ] Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit. Do not quench the Spirit. The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. [ Warning Against Unbelief ] So, as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who 7

8 Hebrews 10:29 James 4:5 1Peter 4:6 1Peter 4:14 2Peter 1:21 1John 3:24 1John 4:2 1John 4:13 Jude 1:19 Jude 1:20 have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age 6 and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to human standards in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. The one who keeps God s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 8
