Who is the Holy Spirit?

What does the Holy Spirit do?
His work in the lives of SINNERS (John 16:7-11)

His work in the lives of SAINTS
The REGNERATING work of the Holy Spirit
The INDWELLING work of the Holy Spirit
The SEALING work of the Holy Spirit
The BAPTIZING work of the Holy Spirit
The FILLING work of the Holy Spirit

He PRAYS for the believer (Romans 8:26-27)
He GUIDES the believer (John 16:12-14)
He TEACHES the believer (1 John 2:20, 21, 27)




The PROBLEM – False teachers in John’s day claimed to have a special anointing from God which allowed them to know more information that others (v18-19)

The PRESCRIPTION

Every believer has an anointing in that they possess the Spirit of God Who teaches them truth (v20)

Christians do not need to seek some special anointing that will give them more truth or more power(v21)

It is the Spirit of God that indwells us that is the anointing that teaches us truth (v27)

This is not condemning pastors and teachers since God has given them to the church

This is condemning some extra experiential anointing that was being claimed by others outside of the truth of Scripture


He EMPOWERS the believer for witnessing (Acts 1:8)

What does the Holy Spirit provide every believer?

Power
Where we get our English word “dynamite”

What is the purpose of this power from the Spirit?

To be witnesses of Christ
Where we get our English word “martyr”
The Spirit will give us the right words (Mark 13:11)
He gives the believer assurance of salvation

The Holy Spirit is constantly present to provide inner testimony of our Divine adoption (Romans 8:15-17)
This assurance is also seen in the fruit the Spirit of God brings into our lives (Galatians 5:22-23)
