    The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead – He was the promise of the Father: – John 14: 15-1 Isaiah 44: 3 Joel 2: 28 Luke 24: 49

    Purpose of the Holy Spirit: John 16: 7-15

    a: To provide comfort to the believer
    b: To reprove and convict the world of sin
    c: To reprove the world of righteousness
    d: To reprove the world of judgement
    e: To guide the believer into all truth
    f: To hear of things in the heavens and declare it to the believer
    g: To give prophetic insight to the believer
    h: To glorify Jesus
    i: To bring revelation of Jesus

    In order to receive the Holy Spirit there must be a desire for Him and from that position we can then ask the Father for Him. Luke 11: 5-13

    The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Separate Experience to Water Baptism

    Luke 24: 49 Acts 1:4-8 Acts 2:4-18 Acts 4: 31 Acts 8: 14-17 Acts 10: 44-48 Acts 19: 1-6

    Jesus Received the Holy Spirit Right After Water Baptism in the Form of a Dove: Matthew 3: 13-17 Luke 3: 21-22 John 1: 29: 34

    Understanding the Nature of the Dove
    1: It has no gall – Hence there is no bitterness

    2: It does not like to be caged – Do not limit him

    3: It grieves when placed in boundaries- Do not grieve the Spirit

    4: It cannot feed or live where there is garbage

    Bitterness: This is from the Greek word ‘pikros’ which is rendered: – sharp or pungent; carries the idea of piercing; violently bitter.

    Examples: Hebrews 12: 12-17 Acts 8: 14-24 Colossians 3: 1-25 (Esp. v.19) James 3: 8-18

    Limiting God: This is derived from the Hebrew word ‘tavah’ which means: – to limit by confusion; to pre-determine a set boundary.

    Examples: Psalms 78: (Esp. v. 40) John 11: 1-45 (Esp. v.35)

    Grieve: There are several Hebrew and Greek words for this word; therefore, by extension there are several shades of meaning. We want to look at a few in their context: There is the Greek word ‘lupeo’, which means: – to be sad; to be in heaviness; to make sorrowful or to cause distress.

    Examples: Ephesians 4: 25 – 5: 7 Romans 14: 14-23 2 Corinthians 2: 1-11 (cross-reference 1 Corinthians 5: 1-5)

    Important Points to Note in the Corinthian example:

    1. Understand that the corporate (‘body’) life of the church, and not the independent believer, is the key to God’s dealing in the New Testament. God deals with the church as a body and with individuals as parts or members. In this light individual members ought to put the body or congregation’s concerns above their own.

    2. Know that believers are to be unified in their devotion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you sin or fall short, acknowledge it and repent. 1 Corinthians 1: 10

    3. Recognize that division in the church is sin. 1 Corinthians 3: 1-4

    4. Do not neglect church discipline. Understand that such neglect emboldens unrestrained and undisciplined living. 1 Corinthians 5: 1-8

    Garbage or Sin: In order for us to retain the word of God and live a Spirit filled life, we must be constantly pushing back the boundaries: James 1: 21-27 Colossians 3: 1-17

    The Holy Spirit is Also Known by His Giving – That is One of The Qualities of The Godhead: Genesis 1: 28-30 John 3: 16 John 14: 15-31 1 Corinthians 12: 7-11
