Holy Spirit

It’s not a matter of convincing arguments. It’s not even a preponderance of evidence. It certainly is not logical theological deductions. It certainly isn’t the latest fad or the “in” thing.

Those aren’t what caused me to become a Christian. Those things cannot convict anyone of their need for God. That’s a job for the Holy Spirit: And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: (John 16:8 KJV)

We are introduced to the Holy Spirit early: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:2 KJV)

And we enjoy His presence throughout the Bible:

Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. (Psalms 51:11 KJV)

Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. (Acts 1:16 KJV)

And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. (Acts 5:32 KJV)

He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. (Acts 19:2 KJV)

Obviously, you don’t fall into that last category, for at least by now you’ve learned just by reading this blog. This is simply an introduction, if you’ve not already met. Once you’ve met, please learn more. Learn why you should … grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. (Ephesians 4:30 KJV)

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog.

(Philippians 4:8 KJV)
