The Holy Ghost, the Breath, the wind, the life of the Trinity. The Father and Jesus sent the Holy Spirit (Ghost), after the Resurrection, to give us the power and tools to build His Church. (Acts 2)
The Holy Ghost:
The Spirit of truth. (John14:17;15:26)
The Holy Spirit (Ghost) is the comforter, and teacher and a reminder of His will. (John 14:26;15:26)
The Spirit searches all things. (1 Corinthians 2:10)
The comforter reproves the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is the Spirit of truth, He will guide us, and show us things to come. (John 16:7-13)
The Spirit helps our infirmities, making intercession for us. For we know not what we should pray. (Romans 8:26)
The Holy Ghost is given to them who obey Him. (Acts 5:32)
The Holy Ghost can forbid us to preach to some, and send us to others (Acts 16:6;18:25-27)
The Holy Spirit by signs, wonders, miracles and the Gifts of the Spirit gives us the witness of His will. (Hebrews 2:4)
We can find rest, if we avoid the evil heart of unbelief, and trust in Him. (Hebrews 3: 6-12)
The Holy Spirit moves holy men to prophecy. (1 Peter 1:21)
The Promise of the Holy Spirit is the Promise of Christ in us, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
The Gifts of the Spirit, the indwelling of the Spirit, the Power of the Spirit, has been given to the Church to build His body.
How’s that working for us?
If we recognize that Matthew 25, (watch for a post explaining this), is all about us and the Holy Spirit, the Talents the Lord left us is obviously not money, but the Gifts of the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12-14; Romans 12:6-9; Ephesians 4:11-16)
We must pray the Lord, calls us to a closer walk, the wisdom and grace to use the power He has given to those who believe, to build His Church.
