NOOMA
The Person of the Spirit
Introduction
• Why study the doctrine of the Spirit?
( PNEUMATOLOGY )
1. The Holy Spirit is the
point at which the Trinity
becomes personal for the
believer … he is resident
within us
2. We live in the period in
which the Holy Spirit’s
work is more prominent
than that of the other
members of the Trinity
3. The current culture
stresses the experiential,
and it is primarily through
[the Holy Spirit] that we
experience God
