Role of the Holy Spirit V

 

In previous articles, we studied the following: the Holy Spirit immediately seals a believer the very second when they believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit is a down payment guaranteeing a believer into Heaven when they believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit baptizes a believer into the Body of Christ when they believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit teaches a believer to understand the deeper things of God (spiritual discernment); the Holy Spirit gives a believer the power to “test (try) the spirits” and identify “spirit of antichrist”: the Holy Spirit bears witness to His children. 

 

The Holy Spirit is a discerner of truth and speaks of Jesus Christ. “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you” (John 16:7-15 KJV). The Holy Spirit does not speak of Himself but speaks of glorifying the work of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins (past, present, and future), He was buried, and He resurrected the third day because God the Father accepted Jesus Christ death payment for sin. Jesus Christ’s resurrection is proof His death payment is all-sufficient for the payment for sin. The Holy Spirit comes to reveal, highlight and glory in the fact that Jesus Christ death was not in vain, and our belief is not in vain because Jesus Christ has resurrected -Holy Spirit highlights this point throughout all the scriptures. “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV).  The Holy Spirit is very clear there is only One Way to Heaven, and it is through Jesus Christ Lord Savior; Jesus Christ is the only Hope for salvation for sinner man. Let us emphasize the fact that the Holy Spirit speaks not of Himself, glories not in the unrighteous deeds of men; but, is a witness and glories unto the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8 KJV).

 

The Holy Spirit immediately seals the believer when they believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit is a down payment guaranteeing a believer’s inheritance into Heaven when they believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit baptizes believer into the Body of Christ when they believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit helps believer understand the Word of God (spiritual discernment); the Holy Spirit helps believer “test” the spirits and identify spirit of antichrist; the Holy Spirit bears witness to His children, which is a position received by faith alone in Christ alone; the Holy Spirit speaks of Jesus Christ. We hope you have enjoyed the series “Role of the Holy Spirit.”

 

If you have not received Jesus Christ as your Savior, what is stopping you right now from accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior?  Believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, burial, and resurrection; trust in Christ Jesus as your Savior today.  Today is the day of salvation. “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation)” (II Corinthians 6:2 KJV). 

 

THE PLAN OF SALVATION - THE GOSPEL

 

The Gospel is Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins (past, present, and future), He was buried, and He resurrected the third day to show us the payment for sin is paid in full.  

  • I Corinthians 15:1-4: Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

God loves you. Lord Savior Jesus Christ was revealed in the flesh for one reason, and that is to save us from our sins.  Jesus Christ does not come to condemn individuals.  Jesus Christ comes to save us because we are all Hell doomed sinners without the Blood of Jesus Christ. 

  • John 3:16-18:  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 

 

All individuals are sinners. The payment for sin is death. 

  • Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

  • Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Christ died for your sin and resurrected for you.

  • II Corinthians 5:21: For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  • I Corinthians 15:3-4: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

If you believe in Christ alone, you receive eternal life.

  • John 6:47: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

  • I John 5:13: These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

 

If you could be saved by being water baptized, doing good works, being a good person or following the Ten Commandments, why did (the God from Eternity Past, the God from Eternity Future) the Ever Presence Jesus Christ reveal Himself in the flesh and die on the Cross and resurrect the third day?  

  • Galatians 2:21: I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

 

If you could earn salvation by doing those things, then Jesus Christ died in vain. However, Jesus Christ didn’t die in vain. Jesus Christ made a perfect sacrifice for sin. He is the Lamb of God, and only the Lamb of God can make a perfect sacrifice for sin. There is only one way to Heaven, and it is the belief in the Finished Redemptive Work of Jesus Christ.

  • Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

  • Philippians 3:9: And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

  • Galatians 2:16: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

  • Titus 3:5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

 

The resurrection is proof God the Father accepted Jesus Christ death payment for sin -death payment of past, present, and future sin.  

 

People DO NOT go to Hell because they are “bad.” People go to Hell because they believe NOT the Gospel of Jesus Christ. People trust NOT in Jesus Christ as their Savior. People believe NOT Jesus Christ died on the Cross for their sins, burial, and resurrection. People do NOT trust alone in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ. 

  • II Thessalonians 1:8-9: In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

 

Know that God is gracious to you, and He has already died for all your sins (past, present, and future), He was buried showing all the world He died for your sins, and He resurrected showing all the world that Jesus Christ fulfilled what the Father asked Him to do: IT IS FINISHED!  

 

I pray you to believe in Jesus Christ right now for salvation -believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sin, burial, and resurrection. Trust alone in Jesus Christ as your Savior. 

 

If you know someone who is not saved, forward this message to them and share the greatest gift that one could ever receive.

Once Saved, Always Saved -"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one." (John 10:28-30 KJV)
