THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT


THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT


WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?

As we read Acts, we discover that the Holy Spirit played an indispensable role in the birthing of the Church (Acts 2:1-41), and in fact throughout the entire Book of Acts. And He still plays the same indispensable role in the life of the believer today. As Christians, it is important for us to understand who the Holy Spirit is, and the kind of help He gives us:

1. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD

The very first thing we must understand about the Holy Spirit is that He is indeed God. In Acts 5:3-4, we read: "Then Peter said, 'Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied TO THE HOLY SPIRIT . . . You have not lied to men BUT TO GOD' " (see also 2 Corinthians 3:17).
God has chosen to express Himself to mankind as Father, as Son, and as the Holy Spirit. These are three distinct Persons, yet the three are one.

2. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE PROMISE OF JESUS

''But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you" John 16:7.
After Jesus ascended to the throne of His Father, He kept His promise and sent the Holy Spirit to indwell the believer (John 14:17; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16). And this promise is also for the believer today! On the Day of Pentecost, Peter boldly declared: " . . . you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children AND FOR ALL WHO ARE FAR OFF - for all whom the Lord our God will call'' Acts 2:38-39(read also John 14:16, 26; 15:26).


3. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE VOICE OF GOD

"While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, 'Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them' '' Acts 13:2.

While Jesus was on the earth, He gave His disciples directives through His own audible voice. When He left, He sent the Holy Spirit to fulfill this same ministry "for ever'' (John 14:16) - now on a far wider scale. The Holy Spirit can speak to our hearts at any time and at any place (see also Acts 10:19-20; 16:6; Romans 8:14; Revelation 3:13).

Be that as it may, there was the considerable improvement of Cuju then for three fundamental angles including having a swelled ball, defining up the objective and richening the playing styles.

While a MLB strike zone should be as uniform as could reasonably be expected, each umpire utilizes his own particular understanding of the genuine measurements to call balls and strikes.
