Second verse – I like this:  “I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies, no sudden rending of the veil of clay” – in other words, some transcendent experience – “no angel visitant, no opening skies” – no trip to heaven – “but take the dimness of my soul away, help me see the truth.”  And then the last verse:  “Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love, one holy passion filling all my frame, the kindling of the heaven-descended dove, my heart an altar and I love the flame.”  The Holy Spirit wants to set you on fire to love Him, to love the Son, to love the Father.

Now, at this point, the apostle Paul probes down deep into the pathology of fallenness, the pathology of corruption. In Acts 1:8 the disciples were told that they would receive a special anointing of power, a special enablement to carry forth with the work of the kingdom of God. This is amazing power. Thus, when Paul says in Galatians 2:19b-20, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. Your mind is changed. But the emphasis of the word ruach, Spirit, and the word pneuma, in the Greek in the New Testament is not on immateriality. They are both onomatopoetic words. “So that” – this is a purpose clause.

For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. 13:14 speaks of the unifying fellowship of the Holy Spirit for all believers when it mentions the "fellowship of the Spirit." To re-create everyone who believes into their immortal bodies? Now, it needs to be clarified here that you are not getting more of God, but God is getting more of you. The law can condemn the sinner, the law can’t condemn sin, but Christ in His death condemned sin in His own human flesh as an incarnate man. The Holy Spirit did not limit His power to creation. He walked with God – try this one – for 365 years. Even though the body dies, the Spirit lives forever. Now look back at verse 4.

But your spirit is alive because of righteousness. In fact, the Bible tells us in Romans 8:10 that the Holy Spirit brings life. That's why the Psalmist could say in Psalm 16:11, "You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.". It's amazing that we ever hear His voice at all, considering how little time we devote to being still and listening. You’re not in the flesh, summing up what he has said. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. This is not a small thing. Many people make the mistake of referring to the Holy Spirit with the impersonal pronoun, "It." Against such things there is no law.". 156). That flesh and blood cannot do it. That’s depravity. So we’ve seen God’s very strong section on the whole human race being under divine condemnation and judgment, Christ’s wonderful gracious provision, and now the activating of the redemption that God initiated and Christ validated comes by the work of the Holy Spirit. “If Christ is in you,” or since Christ is in you, “though the body is dead because of sin” – in other words, look, we’re not saying Paul wants to make clear you’re good. He makes us alive. That’s how it is. Sermons are not speeches. You’re not going to limbo, you’re not going to purgatory, you’re not going to some holding place, you’re not going to get stuck waiting for the next train to heaven on some endless track.

Power to overrule their prejudices, power to overrule their preferences so that what you get in the Bible is the word of the Holy Spirit through writers who were writing what they wanted to write, but what they wanted to write was reduced by an overwhelmingly violent act upon their minds, carried out by the Holy Spirit, which banished everything else – everything else. He is to be respected, followed and cherished.

The Jews in general had no conception of a baby born to a virgin who would deliver the… It meant to please God. One of the most reassuring ministries of the Holy Spirit is that of intercession. Peter says that men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write. It doesn’t become as clear as it does in the New Testament, and it isn’t as complete as it is in the New Testament, but the Spirit was doing His work or no one would be saved, no one would be sanctified. Now you’re seeing some power, overcoming this corruption that is so profound and deep in every human being, and the Holy Spirit has overcome it to enable us to obey the law of God, and that would start with loving God and pleasing Him as well. But this is not how scripture reveals Him to us. He shows us truth and helps us understand why we should obey it and how to implement it in our lives.

One of my dear friends just died. 4. The unsaved person is dominated by a deliberate, intentional mindset controlled by the flesh. Registered User Contrary to what some may teach, there is no second blessing where you have to beg and beg to get the Holy Spirit after you are saved. If Christ is in you though the body is dead – there’s a deadness in your body, there’s a death principle in your body because of sin. Whenever the Spirit of God is in control, people who are under His control will be unified in love, in purpose and in the grace that gives evidence of His presence. On the other hand, there’s another pathology here. Let’s start in verse 1:  “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit is a unique person with the characteristics which define a person. First Timothy 5:6, “She that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.”  But we have been given spiritual life, and now we have that life because we’ve made peace with God. It was a horrible thing to see. The Holy Spirit was doing His work then. A MAN SEEKING FOR GOD. He doesn’t stop there. He’s pleading for God to wash him. You have experienced a real resurrection, spiritually speaking. That’s the body of this death. To one degree or another, he will manifest that hate. It means being comforted by His presence; it means speaking to Him and knowing that He hears you. We now are not hostile to God, we willingly subject ourselves to the law of God, we’re able to do that by the Holy Spirit, and we can even please God. Remember, our understanding of God is that He is one God who expresses Himself in three equal and yet unique persons.

He will take of mine and will disclose it to you.”  “He,” He says again, “takes of mine and will disclose it to you.”  If you belong to Christ, the Spirit will be your teacher. That is a fact. Think of Enoch. Secondly, because of this life, He enables us to fulfill God’s law. And Acts 13:2 tells us that He speaks, all of these are characteristics of a person. We’re not saying that. If you understand your condition before you were saved, you will understand just how violent it was. We don’t have the full picture in the Old Testament; we do have the full picture in the New Testament. It’s those people who John says love the world, things that are in the world, and the love of the Father is not in them. That’s the way it is. You wouldn’t repent, you wouldn’t believe, you wouldn’t progress spiritually, you wouldn’t be illuminated to understand the Scriptures. Now, if every believer has a spiritual gift, the obvious question is, why aren't they using them? You’ve been created unto good works which God before ordained that you would walk in them. Fourth, baptism means doing this immersing in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. That’s not all He did. You say, “What is that phenomenon?”  Power of suggestion, the power of group expectation, the power of manipulation. Well, let’s look at verse 10. That’s power.

They are a mockery of His true work. We see here the trouble God went to to help Cornelius get to the place he could experience salvation and the baptism in the Holy Spirit. We’re given then an amazing and rich revelation of His gracious, violent, explosive power that basically re-creates us and empowers us in righteousness and ultimately empowers us for eternal glory. You want to hear His Word, you want to understand His Word, you want to obey His Word. He searches the deep things that are in the Father's heart and reveals them unto us. It does not say that sometimes we don't know how to pray. We certainly emphasize Christ and all of His work and His person and character and His life. In fact, the best way, I think, to translate it is the deliberate, intentional mindset. He regenerates the elect. What does he mean then, “Don’t take away Your Spirit from me”? Want to get in touch? Whatever is born of the flesh is flesh and whatever is born of the Spirit is spirit.'" He had lusted after a woman who was not his wife by the name of Bathsheba. Some people walk in the flesh, that’s their behavior because they mind the things of the flesh, that’s their thinking, and they are therefore dead, that’s their condition.

We'd love to hear from you. We all have the responsibility to proclaim the gospel. This is a command. He said, "The experience of the Spirit is like the experience of breathing: one is not conscious of it all the time, but if one is not conscious of it at least sometimes, something is wrong.". John Piper delivered this message at the Sing! We know Christ executed it on the cross, but how does it get applied to us? Now, because of the work of the Holy Spirit, you have been given life and the continuing, sanctifying work of the Spirit – talk about the regenerating work which happened when you’re saved – the ongoing sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit is an ongoing powerful movement of the third member of the Trinity in your life to drive you in the direction that He wants you to go. And, by the way, something that doesn’t exist. God only recognizes two kinds of people:  those who walk according to the flesh and those who walk according to the Spirit. This is the word for disposition. Our fellowship is around the Word of God, and we are currently in a series looking at the life of the believer as impacted by the Holy Spirit. But if anyone doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ, He doesn’t belong to Him. The people who are the walking dead and the people who are the walking living. Both pneuma and ruach are words that have in the very pronunciation air in motion. ", And we find Him in the last chapter of the Bible, extending an invitation. Now, as we come into chapter 8, we come into the Holy Spirit’s chapter. It is the Spirit of God, the violent power of God through that third person of the Trinity, that creates the host of heaven, Psalm 33:6:  “By ruach, God creates the host of heaven.”  That is power. And so we read in verse 11:  “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”. True blessedness. Today we will concentrate our thoughts on the doctrine of God the Holy Spirit, often referred to as Pneumatology, literally meaning, "A word about the Spirit.". Demonstrations of His supernatural power are not to be occasional but prolific. The ruach of Yahweh is the power that takes hold of His prophets, picks them up, carries them somewhere, and drops them in a different place, Ezekiel 3, Ezekiel 11, 1 Kings 18. The Holy Spirit inspired the scripture; one of His primary roles is in the area of revelation. And the Holy Spirit’s power is also behind the writing of Scripture.
