WHO SHALL WE BE? THAT WHICH IS DEAD TO GOD? OR SHALL WE BE USEFUL? ON ONE CONDITION CAN WE DO GOOD. IN THE
LOVE OF CHRIST MUST WE BE, BUT WITHOUT, WE ARE A HARSH SOUNDING NOISE, IN THE EAR OF THE LOST AND THE FOUND.
HIS LOVING TOUCH
Kiss the dawn of childhood dreams
The clinging hands, soft nursury rhymes
now my way was blessed
No more caught up within my depths
I went and looked
I gazed upon this world
To catch the
best and take the worst of it
And I came upon the natural things
In flowers touched and buttercups
My Father's loving
My Father's loving touch
In precious little
There is so much
"He shall glorify me;..." John 16:14

He clearly communicates with Believers. If there is communication, then
many other things are indicated: will, ability, intelligence, etc.
THE SPIRIT AND LOVE OF JESUS
THE SPIRIT HAS THE ACTIONS OF A PERSON
2 Samuel 23:2: ...The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me....
8:29: ...Then the Spirit said....
Revelation 2:7: ...the Spirit says....
Paul tells us that when
we don't know how to pray that the Spirit Himself makes intercession on our behalf (Romans 8:26). This indicates that the
Holy Spirit knows our minds, and has the ability to communicate with GOD THE FATHER for us. Neither of these are abilities
a power or force might have.
of the ministries that He has with the Christian is guidance, be it guidance in our study of the Word, or guidance in finding
Elohim's will. Romans 8:14: ...For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
He calls and commissions:
This requires many of
the attributes which we have already discussed. Only a being with personality can call and commission people to diverse ministries
around the world. Acts 13:2, Acts 20:28.
He commanded Phillip to go to the Eunuch at Acts 8:29. This requires planning and authority. Phillip was
submitting to the plan of the Spirit for his life.
He Dwells In Believers:
Only a being with personality can dwell with another being. John 14:17 mentions,
in relationship to the Spirit, ...and shall be in you.
A teacher is not devoid of personality.The Holy Spirit has the ability to teach which indicates
many of the things that we have mentioned. Will, intelligence and the ability to communicate are all qualities of personality.
He Reproves: John 16:8
He Sends: Acts 13:4
He Forbids Some Actions: Acts 16:6,7
Acts 1:8, 2 Peter 1:21
He Testifies: John 15:26,27
The Holy Spirit can be vexed:
Isaiah 63:10: "But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit therefore
he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them." Vexed means to annoy or disturb. In relation to this, we need
to understand that we have a responsibility to the Holy Spirit to treat Him as a person. How it must vex Him when His people
deny his intelligence, His wisdom, His concerns for us etc.
He can be grieved:Eph.4:30
You cannot grieve a force or power, but it is possible to grieve a person.
Grieving the Spirit should be the last thing that we Believers would want to do, yet we do so often.
Ephesians 4:30 warns
that the Holy Spirit can be lied to: Ananias and Sapphira lied to Him with dire results. To know and punish a liar requires
intelligence and a sense of value judgments. Conversely, who would attempt to lie to a power or force? The idea itself doesn't
even make sense. Acts 5:3:
can be resisted:
In Stephen's sermon he encouraged his listeners to be open to the Spirit. "You stiff-necked and
uncircumcised in heart and ears, you do always resist the Holy Spirit; as your parents did, so do you" -- Acts 7:51. Notice
that the result of resisting the Spirit is being "stiff-necked." We must be very careful not to resist the Spirit. His ministry
is to help us, but if we resist His attempts, in time He may decide to stop trying. We may become too "stiff necked."
The Holy Spirit can be called upon:
is the beginning of the vision of the dry bones arising and being assembled. The Spirit is called to breath life into the
dead. If called upon, there is an expected possibility of a response.
The response is that action of personality that we
ought to look forward to when we pray. If the Holy Spirit is not a Person He can't reply to our prayers. If He can't reply
to our prayers, then why should we pray? On the other hand, when we are praying and worshiping God and sense the presence
of the Holy Spirit we should understand that this is not a flow of energy but the actual presence of the Almighty God in our
midst! The Holy Spirit has heard and accepted our prayers and praise!
The Spirit is to be obeyed:
It is inconceivable to think that we would obey anything less
than a person. Acts 10:19-21 tells us that the Holy Spirit ordered Peter to go meet some people and he followed His instructions.
At Acts 16:6 Paul is again guided and commanded by the Holy Spirit.
The Spirit can be quenched, 1 Thessalonians
He can be blasphemed, Matthew 12:31.
He can be revered, Psalm 51:11
The Holy Spirit can be tested, Acts 5:9
Gives Gifts: 1 Corinthians 12:27:28
He Indwells: 1 Corinthians 6:19
He Convicts: John 16:7
He Intercedes: Romans
He Testifies: John 16:13,14
He Teaches: John 14:26; 1 John 2:27
He Guides: John 16:13
HE SEALS THE BELIEVER
UNTIL THE DAY OF REDEMPTION Eph.4:30 THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM:
Question 4: What is God? Answer 4: God is a Spirit,
infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth. Question 5: Are
there more Gods than one? Answer 5: There is but one only, the living and true God. Question 6: How many persons are there
in the Godhead? Answer 6: There are three persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and these three
are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
