SPIRIT vs Spirits
If you are a regular to my blog, then you know by now that I talk a great deal about “spiritual” or “religious” information. Beginning with today’s blog, I shall begin a series, which covers the various aspects of THE HOLY SPIRIT. I put that in capital letters for this reason:
I John 4:1 states: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
The Holy Spirit is one spirit or entity, not several spirits. As we undertake this series, I shall cover several aspects of the divine Holy Spirit of God. He is such a mystery, yet He is such an awesome influencer in the lives of Christian believers.
We shall seek to better understand the following items, plus many others that are not listed.
1. Who is the Holy Spirit?
2. What is His position?
3. How did He get here?
4. Is He part of the divine Godhead?
5. Who promised to send Him?
6. Why was He sent?
7. What does He do?
8. How does He do what He does?
9. What is His mission?
10. What role does He play in the life of the believer?
11. What role does He play in the church?
12. Should we concern ourselves with what He is doing?
13. Etc., etc., etc.
We shall begin next week. Don’t forget now; and tell your friends!
