The Holy Ghost

The Holy GhostBefore Jesus went to the cross, He promised His disciples another Helper – One who would be with them forever (John 14:16-17). In Acts 2, we see the fulfillment of that promise when the God’s Spirit filled those who were gathered together on Pentecost, and they began to speak in tongues. ¬†God’s gift to us of the Holy Spirit has a huge impact on our lives today.

Let’s see what God’s Word has to say about the Holy Ghost:

  • The world neither sees or knows Him. Therefore, it can’t accept Him (John 14:17).
  • He is with us in and in us (John 14:17).
  • He will teach us all things (John 14:26).
  • He will bring to our remembrance the things which Jesus said. (John 14:26).
  • He will show us that which is to come (John 16:13).
  • He will guide us into truth (John 16:13).
  • When the Holy Spirit comes on us, we will receive power (Acts 1:8).
  • Manifestations and gifts of the Spirit: word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment of spirits, tongues, and interpretation of tongues (1 Corinthians 12:7-11).
  • We are to eagerly and earnestly desire the gifts of the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 14:2).
