The Role of the Holy Spirit

  1. 1. The ROLE of As Presented in the Gospel of John
  2. 2. OVERVIEW OF THE SPIRIT’S ROLE 1. To bear witness to Christ’s identity 2. To glorify Jesus 3. To convict the world of sin, righteousness & judgment 4. To initiate the new birth and true worship in men 5. To strengthen and help those who are born again 6. To guide into truth & foretell events (early church) 7. To produce living water flowing from believers
  3. 3. 1. To Bear Witness to Christ’s Identity Jn.1:31-34 John the Baptist I did not know Him (Jesus); but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water. And John bore witness, saying: ”I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, “Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.” And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.
  4. 4. 2. To Glorify Jesus Jn.16:13 Jesus to his disciples He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
  5. 5. 3. To Convict the World John 16:8-11 Jesus to his disciples And when He (the Spirit) has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  Of sin, because they do not believe in Me;  Of righteousness because I go to My Father and you see me no more.  And of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
  6. 6. Jn.3:6-7 Jesus to Nicodemus That which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ Jn.4:24 Jesus to the woman at the well God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. 4. To Initiate the New Birth and True Worship in Men
  7. 7. 5. To Strengthen and Help Those who Are Born Again Jn.14:16-18 Jesus to his disciples regarding the Spirit I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter), that He may abide with you forever, I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. (Spirit in us = Christ in us) even (i.e.) the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
  8. 8. 6. To Guide them into Truth and Foretell Future Events Jn.16:12-13 Jesus to his disciples I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now… However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth [ultimately, the cannon of Scripture] for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; AND he will tell you things to come. [Short-term prophecies and New Testament book of Revelation]
  9. 9. 7. To Produce Rivers of Living Water Flowing from Them Jn.7:37-38 Jesus to Pharisees & Jews If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. Jn.7:39 cont’d This He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
  10. 10. John 1:33 Upon whom you see the Spirit descending… This is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. At Pentecost
  11. 11. THE SPIRIT IS VISIBLE BY HIS FRUIT… Galatians 5:22-23 Love Joy Peace Patience Kindness Goodness Faithfulness Gentleness Self- control
  12. 12. Gal.5:17 The flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. How Is This Fruit Produced? Our daily reality is a spiritual battle:
  13. 13. Approach of the Natural Man versus
  14. 14. Approach of the Spiritual Man
  15. 15. BIBLICAL PROCESS A – Affirmation (affirming your faith by your fruit) C – Conformation (taking on the image of Christ) T – Transformation (renewing of the mind) TRANSFORMATION  CONFORMATION  AFFIRMATION ACTRemember the acrostic and use it upside down:
  16. 16. Rom.12:2 Do not be conformed to this world… but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. T – Transformation (Renew your mind!)
  17. 17. Rom.8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. C – Conformation (Take on the image of Jesus!)
  18. 18. Gal.5:22 And the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. A – Affirmation (Bear fruit!) Gal.5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
  19. 19. NO FRUIT OUTSIDE OF CHRIST John 15:5 Jesus said: I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. Gal.2:20 Paul said: I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.
  20. 20. PERSONAL GROWTH Gal.2:20 Paul said: I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. Are You Walking in the Spirit?
