Now Playing: Is the Holy Spirit being allowed to work in our life ?
Seven actions of the Spirit of God
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, (1) that He may abide with you forever;
"....ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, Which is the *earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:13-14)
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name,
(2) He shall teach you all things,
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." 1John 2:27)
(3) and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
"I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35)
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, (4) He shall testify of me:
"Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow." 1 Peter 1:11)
Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, (5) He will guide you into all truth:
"But as it is written, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God." 1 Corinthians 2:9-10)
for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and (6) He will shew you things to come.
"Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.
And immediately I was in the Spirit....:" Revelation 4:1-2)
(7) He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.
"If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified." 1 Peter 4:14)
"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual." 1Corinthians 2:12-13
