The Work of the Holy Spirit.   08/23/18


The Spirit has two major aspects that affect those who receive Christs gift of salvation, secured by His blood being shed on the cross. This requires their belief in what Christ did on the cross, and that the Father raised Him from the dead. (Romans 10:9)


1. The Spirit gives us the mind of the Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:10) Thus those without the Spirit cannot understand or accept the things that come from the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 2:14)


2. Holy Spirit is made up of the 7 Spirits of God (Isaiah 11:2) for the mind. This same Spirit that Christ had is in the believer.

Isaiah 11: 2 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him - 

1. The Spirit of the Lord

2. The Spirit of Wisdom

3. The Spirit of Understanding

4. The Spirit of Counsel

5. The Spirit of Power

6. The Spirit of Knowledge

7. The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord


3. The Spirit also brings 9 attributes of His Fruit: (Galatians 5:22) . These are in our hearts when we are filled with the Spirit. The is the Fruit of the Spirit :

1. Love

2. Joy These three are manifested in the believer

3. Peace

4. Patience

5. Kindness These three are toward others

6. Goodness

7. Faithfulness

8. Meekness These three are toward God

9. Self-Control


When a believer (Gentile) confesses that Jesus is Lord, and believes that God raised Him from the dead, the Holy Spirit enters that person and seals him for the day of redemption. The work of transforming (conforming) that person into the image of God's Son (Jesus). (Romans 10:9, Philippians 1:6, Ephesians 4:6, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Romans 8:29). From that point on we become God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do Good works that He prepares in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10) The Spirit works to insure that each believer bears fruit, and more fruit (John 15:2) and continuing to prune us so we bear much fruit (John 15:5, 8 NIV) If you confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is cursed”, and no one can say , “Jesus is Lord”, except by the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor 12:3) Here are
