Holy Spirit Part 1 Old Testament

Holy Spirit Part 1 Old Testament

Holy Spirit- Who and Why Lesson Objective:  To study the Holy Spirit and to determine the importance of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Scripture:  Genesis 1: 1-2 John 16: 13-14; Introduction Many people think that the Holy Spirit is tied directly to the Day of Pentecost and talking in tongues. I would suggest that this is more than a lesson on the Day of Pentacost and it is not a lesson on speaking in tongues.  This is a lesson on The Holy Spirit as a part of the Trinity and a vehicle for Christians to upbuild the kingdom both personally and collectively.  It is important to note that we find the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament and New Testament. The major difference is that in the Old Testament the Holy Spirit was not given to all but only to a select few to accomplish the mission of God. In the New Testament , the Holy Spirit resides in all believers. Who is the Holy Spirit Person John 16: 13-14; Proverbs 3:6; Acts 16:6 Trinity Gen 1:2; Matthew 28: 19-20; 1 Corinthians 2:11 All knowing 1 Corinthians 2: 10-11 Empowers Spiritual gifts Perfect Guide Luke 12:12; John 14:26 Holy Spirit in the Old Testament Saul receives the Holy Spirit 1 Samuel 10:6 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you shall prophesy with them and be changed into another man Isaiah speaking the words of God Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; Holy Spirit present during the journey from Egypt Nehemiah 9:20 Isaiah 63:11-14 David understands the power of the Spirit of God Psalm 104: 30 Joel talks about the day of Pentacost  Joel 2:28   Laying of hands and the Holy Spirit Moses and Joshua Deuteronomy 34:9 Other examples for further study:   Holy Spirit in the New Testament John the Baptist led by the Holy Spirit   Luke 1:41-45 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Christ recognizes the importance of the Holy Spirit Matthew 12: 31 John 15: 26-27 John 16: 7-14 Christ spoke of the power of the Holy Spirit Acts 1:8 Day of Pentecost .Acts 2:3-4 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. When do we receive the Holy Spirit? Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13 Romans 8:9 Ephesians 1: 13-14 What happens when you receive the Holy Spirit? Spirit of discernment Protector Spiritual gifts Difference between Filled with the Holy Spirit and Instilled Spiritual Gifts 1 Corinthians 12: 1-18 These are gifts through the Holy Spirit Everyone has a gift All gifts are important and should be used accordingly Gifts that are controversial Speaking in tongues and interpretation Definition Glossolalist believe in speaking an unknown heavenly language. Cessationists believe that it did exist in the early Church for the purpose of spreading the gospel but ceased with the apostles. While others believe that it is foreign languages Purpose of speaking in tongues 1 Corinthians 14: 2 Edify God and needs interpretation The fallicy is not speaking in tongues but the belief that one does not have the Holy Spirit if they do not speak in tongues that causes much of the controversy It is not to make someone superior over another 1 Corinthians 14: 5 It is not to be taught to prove that someone is holy Gift of prophesy The word prophet comes from the “Middle English: from Old French prophete, via Latin from Greek prophētēs ‘spokesman,’ from pro ‘before’ + phētēs ‘speaker’ (from phēnai ‘speak’).”(4). This word is in keeping with the Biblical use of the word of those who speak on behalf of God, both men and women The problem is that many call themselves prophets and attempt to foretell the future while prophesy is defined as speaking for God (directions from God to man) which is why God told Samuel that they were not rejecting Samuel but rejecting God when they demanded a king.       Symbols of the Holy Spirit The dove: Matthew 3:16–17; John 1:32, Matthew 10:16; Psalm 68:13.
