|5. The Holy Spirit: God
the eternal Spirit was active with the Father and the Son in Creation,
incarnation, and redemption. He inspired the writers of Scripture. He filled
Christ's life with power. He draws and convicts human beings and those
who respond He renews and transforms into the image of God. Sent by the
Father and the Son to be always with His children, He extends spiritual
gifts to the church, empowers it to bear witness to Christ, and in harmony
with the Scriptures leads it into all truth.
(Gen. 1:1, 2 Luke 1:35 4:18 Acts 10:38 2 Peter
2 Cor. 3:18
|[GEN 1:1-2]  In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void and darkness
was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face
of the waters.
[LUK 1:35]  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
[LUK 4:18]  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
[ACT 10:38]  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with him.
[2 PE 1:21]  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
[2 CO 3:18]  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
[EPH 4:11-12]  And he gave some, apostles and some, prophets and some, evangelists and some, pastors and teachers For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
[ACT 1:8]  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
[JOH 14:16-18]  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever Even the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
[JOH 14:26]  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
[JOH 15:26-27]  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
[JOH 16:7-13]  Nevertheless I tell you the truth It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
