18 HOLY SPIRIT Holy Spirit – His Works Gave Men God’s Word II Peter 1:16-21 “For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory:

19 HOLY SPIRIT Holy Spirit – His Works Gave Men God’s Word II Peter 1:16-21 “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place,

20 HOLY SPIRIT Holy Spirit – His Works Gave Men God’s Word II Peter 1:16-21 until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.”

30 HOLY SPIRIT Holy Spirit Works Through the Word Reveals To Us the Mystery Ephesians 3:1-5 (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets.”

34 BY WHAT MEANS DOES THE HOLY SPIRIT USE TO SAVE US?

35 THE WORD OF GOD! When We Obey What The Holy Spirit Has Told Us In God’s Word!

36 Some look for a direct operation of the Holy Spirit in order to be saved. But the Holy Spirit works through the Word of God which He has delivered to us. Notice that what the Bible says concerning the work of the Holy Spirit, it also says is done through the Gospel, the Word of God!

37 Holy Spirit II Cor. 3:6 Action Gives Life Word of God Psalm 119:50

52 HOLY SPIRIT Seals Us Ernest of Our Inheritance Our Intercessor

53 HOLY SPIRIT “Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.” II Cor. 1:21-22 “Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.” II Cor. 5:5

54 HOLY SPIRIT “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14

55 HOLY SPIRIT “The Spirit also helps in our weak- nesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27

56 The Holy Spirit Does Not Work Directly On The Heart Of Man- kind To Save Him But Works Through the Medium of the Gospel, the Word of God. There Is Not One Record of the Holy Spirit Working Directly To Save Anyone.

57 Day of Pentecost Acts 2:1-41 Ethiopian Eunuch Acts 8:26-39 Saul (Apostle Paul) Acts 9:1-18; 22:3-16

58 HOLY SPIRIT We Can Understand God’s Word There Are Some Who Say That the Only Way Man Can Understand God’s Word Is By A Direct Action Of the Holy Spirit Upon the Heart Of Man. But This Is Not True!

59 HOLY SPIRIT We Can Understand God’s Word Ephesians 3:1-5 “For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles; if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery,

60 HOLY SPIRIT We Can Understand God’s Word Ephesians 3:1-5 (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets.”

61 HOLY SPIRIT God’s Word Provides What We Need II Peter 1:2-3 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.”

62 HOLY SPIRIT God’s Word Is How We Are Saved Romans 1:16 “ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.”

63 To Be Saved We Must Hear, Understand and Obey God’s Word That Has Been Given To Us Through the Holy Spirit. It is Also the Standard By Which We Will Be Judged In Judgment Day.

64 “He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him; the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.” John 12:48

65 HOLY SPIRIT In Conclusion: God Created Man In His Own Image. Therefore, Man Has the Ability To Think, Reason, Talk and Understand. In the Garden of Eden God Walked With and Spoke Directly To Adam and Eve. But After They Sinned It Created A Barrier So That They Could No Longer Talk To God As They Did In the Garden.

66 HOLY SPIRIT It Became The Holy Spirit’s Work To Reveal God’s Word To Mankind Through Chosen Men. “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son.” Hebrews 1:1-2

67 HOLY SPIRIT “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” II Peter 1:20-21

68 HOLY SPIRIT “ In the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.” II Peter 1:2-3

69 Are You Ready to Accept the Holy Spirit at His Word?
