For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 5.

Jn 16:7 - Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.Thursday 7 April 2011

He is affected in relationships Isa 63:10 - But they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit; Eph 4:30 - And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 1Thess 5:19 - Do not quench the Spirit. Matt 12:31 - Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.Thursday 7 April 2011
  • 12. Acts 5:3 - But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? Heb 10:29 - How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?Thursday 7 April 2011
  • 13. 3. The Bible terms referring to the Holy Spirit all imply his personality Another comforter (advocate, helper), therefore as much as person as Christ - Jn 14:16-17 -And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him.You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. Called a spirit in the same way God is - Jn 4:24 Masculine pronouns are used of the Holy Spirit - usually in Greek spirit is a neuter noun - Jn 14:16-17 (see above)Thursday 7 April 2011

He is called God - Acts 5:3-4 - But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God." Look at Isa 6:8-9 - Acts 28:25-26 Freddie Mercury - see how H. Sp. is referred to as God - real name - Farrokh BulsaraThursday 7 April 2011
  • 15. 2. He has the attributes of God - 1 Cor 2:9-11 - But, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him"—these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Heb 9:14, Gen 1:2Thursday 7 April 2011

He performs the works of God Ps 104:30 - When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground. 2 Peter 1:21 - For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor 6:11 - And such were some of you.

The Holy Spirit is presented in the Bible as a personal object of faith Matthew 28:19 Acts 10:19-20 - And while Peter was pondering the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Behold, three men are looking for you. Rise and go down and accompany them without hesitation, for I have sent them." As such he is to be obeyed - believers experience, guidance, instruction, sufficiency of H. Sp.Thursday 7 April 2011
