INTRODUCING THE HOLY SPIRIT
MEMORY VERSE: “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:4
BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 2:1-4
The day of Pentecost marked the beginning of the dispensation of the Holy Ghost, until now and will continue until Jesus comes to carry His own people away. The coming of the Holy Ghost has been foretold by Jesus as the one coming to take charge of the activities of the church at this end time. The Third Person in Trinity is still relevant now as ever. As He is being introduced to us with a look at His relevance in these last days, may we be blessed in Jesus’ name.
1. WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
2. HIS RELEVANCE IN THESE LAST DAYS
WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
He is the Third Person in Trinity, called the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, the Testifier, and the Teacher. He is the Power behind every activity of the church. He is the Revealer of the mind of God and the plan of the kingdom of darkness. He is the Intercessor. 1John 5: 7; John 14:26; 15:26; Romans 8:16; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 1Cor. 2:9 -11; Romans 8:26-27.
HIS RELEVANCE IN THESE LAST DAYS
As the Person in charge of this dispensation, He is in total control of all situations. As the Third Person in Trinity, He possesses all secrets. Being a Teacher, knowledge, wisdom and understanding are available with Him. Being a Comforter, He is an expert in comforting those that mourn and are sorrowful. Power for holy living and to do exploit is with Him. Power to change and transform a person is with Him. He convicts for genuine repentance. Peace is available with Him. John 16:13-14; 2Kings 6:8-10; Acts 1:8; Luke 10:19; Mark 11:23; Ephesians 1:13-14.
ln this adulterous, perverse and corrupt generation, the Holy Spirit who alone can sustain and see you through is being introduced to you. Receive Him and you will be glad you did so.
