    Some cults like the Jehovah's Witnesses say that the Holy Spirit is nothing more than a force (Reasoning from the Scriptures, , pp. ). This is false. This is false. If the Holy Spirit were merely a force, then He could not speak (Acts ); He could not be grieved (Eph. ); and He would not have a will (1 Cor. ). The Book of Mormon offers a promise for anyone who reads and prays about it: “And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

    He is a personage of Spirit, not having a body of flesh and bones. The Holy Ghost is often referred to as the Spirit, or the Spirit of God. The Holy Ghost performs several vital roles in the plan of salvation. (1) He bears witness of the Father and the Son (1 Cor. ; 3 Ne. ; Ether ).   However, mission—or witnessing—is held out as the fulfillment of the promise of the Holy Spirit: “you will be my witnesses.” Luke’s version disconnects mission from the militarism of the colonial era with its emphasis on obedience and duty. Instead, mission is the result of the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    "This book makes an important contribution to the growing literature on the missional church movement by focusing on the Holy Spirit and the role of prophetic activity. Tyra's view of prophetic activity is supported with a careful analysis that draws out implications for a . In John Jesus says of the Holy Spirit: "But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me." In , the First Council of Nicaea, being the first ecumenical council, ended its Creed with the words "and in the Holy Spirit".

Article XVII of this statement asserts, in part, that “the Holy Spirit bears witness to the Scriptures, assuring believers of the truthfulness of God’s written Word.” By this article we wanted to make it clear that the Bible is the Holy Spirit’s book.

The Witness Of The Spirit Is The Conviction Of Our Conscience God, through the Holy Spirit, is constantly trying to communicate to us. He has given us His Word, the Bible, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter ). It is the Holy Spirit that teaches us the truth the Bible contains (John.

THE HOLY SPIRIT— OUR POWER TO WITNESS. Posted by Pastor Greg Allen on June 6, under AM Bible Study | AM Bible Study Group; June 6, – The Holy Spirit—Our Helper; Lesson His Helping.

Theme: The Holy Spirit helps us to join Him in His ministry of witnessing of Jesus in this world. The primary context for the book's writing was as an extension of the author's doctoral thesis, which had focused on a Biblical examination of the tenets of 20th century Pentacostalism, as they touched upon the Holy Spirit and His role in the Christian's by: The Spirit of God witnesses to the redemption of our Lord, and to nothing else.

He cannot witness to our reason. We are inclined to mistake the simplicity that comes from our natural commonsense decisions for the witness of the Spirit, but the Spirit witnesses only to His own nature, and to the work of redemption, never to our reason.

Romans ,26 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

2 Corinthians Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. It is believed commonly that the two witnesses of Revelation, Chapter 11 are two men from ancient times who will descend from Heaven, or who will be raised from the dead, in order to bear witness of the coming of the Kingdom of God to the earth.

This book is composed of messages given by Brother Witness Lee in a. The Holy Spirit’s Witness By Gary Gilley. Editor’s Note: Cults have a wrong view of the Holy Spirit. They think He is a force, an it, and a mystical power.

Therefore, to clear up this misunderstanding, we have asked Gary Gilley to allow us to use the following article in this edition of JTST.

AS THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SPIRIT. When the Holy Spirit comes upon us, there is a manifestation. Each of the nine gifts in 1 Corinthians is a different manifestation of the Holy Spirit upon us. However, we must be careful.

This does not mean that if we do not have one of these nine gifts, we do not have the Holy Spirit upon us. Holy Spirit. By faith, we can be filled with the Spirit and receive supernatural power to be His witnesses as He has commanded. As we avail ourselves of this power, God will use us as He changes people’s lives for all eternity.

The Power to Witness | The Holy Spirit What’s Our Response. Help the people in your study see their need. As Romans says, "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God." As a result, you can have the inner conviction and witness of the Holy Spirit that you are a child of God.

And as part of this wonderful work of conversion, the Bible also teaches that the Holy Spirit indwells us. The Holy Spirit is an important figure throughout the Bible. In Genesiswe find Him moving about the surface of the waters, and in RevelationHe and the bride cry with one voice.

From beginning to end, the Holy Spirit has always been active: In the beginning, creating, and at the end of the story, tending to us. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.

According to the Westminster Confession of Faith, there are three pillars of assurance of salvation: the promises of God’s Word, the works which the Holy Spirit produces, and the inner witness of the Spirit to the believer. Moreover, this conclusion seems in line with New Testament teaching on the witness of the Holy Spirit.

While non-believers reject New Testament teaching, Christians should take it seriously. Ponder, then, John's words: And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth.

Misconception: The “Holy Ghost,” or holy spirit, is a person and is part of the Trinity, as stated at 1 John 5: 7, 8 in the King James version of the Bible. Fact: The King James version of the Bible includes at 1 John 5: 7, 8 the words “in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

And there are three that bear witness in earth.”. Holy Spirit (Romans ). The leading of the Spirit consists of five inward witnesses, the voice of the human spirit and the voice of the Holy Spirit. Each of these areas can be taught and acquired.

As we grow in being led by the Holy Spirit, we will grow to be truly the sheep who hear the voice of our Lord Jesus Christ (John )."And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth" (1 John ).

Several years ago I was invited to attend a revival meeting in a suburban church just outside of New York City. People had been raving about a "successful crusade" being held there by two young male evangelists.All of the above show us the two aspects of the work of the Holy Spirit.

However, we must realize that these are not aspects of the work of two Spirits. They are different aspects of the work of the one Holy Spirit. (The Work of the Holy Spirit, Chapter 3, by Witness Lee).
