  3. 3. In the OT the HS is in theworld as the omnipresentGod.Yet we still say he came onthe day of Pentecost. He willremain until on the day ofthe rapture of the church hewill depart, in just the sameway he ‘came’ at Pentecost.This will be fully explained inthis section.
  4. 4. A. THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE OTBefore the coming of Christ the HSwas still present on the earthworking in and through people forthe will of God.Gen 41:38 - And Pharaoh said to hisservants, "Can we find a man like this,in whom is the Spirit of God?"Num 27:18 - So the LORD said toMoses, "Take Joshua the son of Nun, aman in whom is the Spirit, and lay yourhand on him.
  5. 5. A. THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE OTZech 4:6 -Then he said to me, "Thisis the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel:Not by might, nor by power, but by mySpirit, says the LORD of hosts.
  6. 6. HS was involved increating the world,speaking to prophets,inspiring scripture to bewritten, restraining sin,enabling believers,performing miracles.It appears HS waswith but not in everybeliever in the OT.
  7. 7. B. THE HS DURING THE LIFE OF CHRIST ON EARTH1. The Spirit was thegenerating power forChrists conception - he alsocame at his baptism - and,Heb 9:14, by the HS heoffered himself to God
  8. 8. B. THE HS DURING THE LIFE OF CHRIST ON EARTH2. There was aprogressive relationshipof HS to men duringChrist’s ministryLuke 11:13 - they could ask
  9. 9. Jn 14:16-17 - Jesus would askand sendJn 20:21-22 - Jesus said tothem again,"Peace be with you. Asthe Father has sent me, even so Iam sending you." And when hehad said this, he breathed on themand said to them,"Receive the HolySpirit.Luke 24:49 - (Acts 1:4) -Andbehold, I am sending the promiseof my Father upon you. But stay inthe city until you are clothed withpower from on high."
  10. 10. C. THE COMING OF HOLY SPIRIT AT PENTECOSTFulfilling the promise ofFather and Son theomnipresent Holy Spiritcame into the world on theday of Pentecost.God is omnipresent yet theBible says Father is inheaven but Eph 4:6 -oneGod and Father of all, who isover all and through all and inall.
  11. 11. C. THE COMING OF HOLY SPIRIT AT PENTECOSTJesus - Matt 18:20 - Forwhere two or three aregathered in my name, theream I among them."So Holy Spirit comes andmakes his dwelling amongstus in this time - he hasmoved to earth for thistime of grace
  12. 12. It is the work of the HSwhich brings any man toChrist1. HS enables men tounderstand their sinof unbelief in Jesus - Jn3:18 - Whoever believes inhim is not condemned, butwhoever does not believe iscondemned already, becausehe has not believed in thename of the only Son of God.
  13. 13. 2. HS shows unbelieversthe righteousness ofGod - HS reveals therighteousness of God - whichis so high that it cannot beachieved by human works -and that there is arighteousness available byfaith in Christ - which whenaccepted enables man to beaccepted by faith in Christ’srighteousness in life and hisdeath on the cross.
  14. 14. Rom 1:16-17 -For I am not ashamed of thegospel, for it is the power of God for salvation toeveryone who believes, to the Jew first and also to theGreek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealedfrom faith for faith,as it is written, "The righteous shalllive by faith."Rom 3:22 - the righteousness of God through faithin Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is nodistinction:Rom 4:5 -And to the one who does not work butbelieves in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith iscounted as righteousness,
  15. 15. 3. HS reveals the judgementand eternal punishmentbrought upon satan by thecross -at the cross satan has beendefeated and judgedIn a believer the HS now bringsabout regeneration (Jn 3:3-7),indwells them (Jn 7:37-39), sealsthem (Eph 4:30), baptises them (1Cor 12:13), fills them (Eph 5:18)and enables them to walk in Him(Gal 5:16)
