The Holy Spirit can be everywhere at once because He is not limited by a body John Since the Word was to go out to all parts of the earth, Jesus could minister to the Church more effectively by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would reprove the world of sin because people do not believe in Him John The only sin that condemns a man is the continual rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour John This sin is also the unpardonable sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin.
The Holy Spirit reproves the world of righteousness because Jesus ascended into heaven John When God received Jesus up into heaven, He was setting the standard of righteousness a man would have to meet to be acceptable to God. The Holy Spirit reproves the world of judgment because the prince of this world Satan is judged John When Jesus went to the cross and died in our place, Satan lost his power over us to force us to do those things that are contrary to God's righteousness Colossians Our old nature, which was subject to sin and to Satan, was put to death at the cross of Christ Romans What does it mean when we sin?
It means that we have not appropriated what God has made available to us through the power of Christ and the Holy Spirit. We need to consciously yield to the power of the Spirit and to that victory of Christ over Satan. Any power that Satan exerts in our lives today is usurped because he has no authority over us and no right to try to control us.
If we demand in the name of Jesus Christ that Satan go, then he must. When we pray to ask God for His help in removing Satan from our lives, we should be very specific, because Satan is so stubborn that he won't want to relinquish any foothold that he does not have to. Also, once he is driven out, he will launch a counter-attack to win the area back, so remember to hold onto what you take through the power of the Holy Spirit by continual prayer.
The Bible says that in the last days there will be "distress of nations, with perplexity" Luke The word translated "perplexity" also means "no way out. In verse 3 the "falling away" refers to the departure of the Church. This will be the time when Jesus Christ will come for His Church. He will not return to earth at this time, but we will be caught up "snatched up" in Greek to meet Him in the air. His second coming will occur seven years later when He returns to earth with His Church to establish His kingdom Colossians , Jude 14 , Revelation The "son of perdition" is the Antichrist, who will cause his image to be set up in the temple in Jerusalem v.
This is the "abomination of desolation" prophesied in Daniel , , , and in Matthew Verse 6 refers to the power of the Holy Spirit in withholding or hindering Satan from presenting the Antichrist to a world that has been conditioned to accept him. The economy will stabilize when the Antichrist introduces his identification number system to use in buying and selling Revelation People are using credit cards for more and more purchases, so they are used to using a number in business transactions.
There is no charismatic, strong political leader on the scene right now. People have lost confidence in their political systems and are looking for a man with the answers Daniel - "Week" refers to 7 years here. People are tired of the troubled Mideast situation and of the continual wars around the world. The spirit of Antichrist is already at work in the world v. Satan would like to put this master deceiver in power now v. In Revelation the rapture of the Church occurs and the next big event on earth is the appearance of the Antichrist riding a white horse symbolizing his false righteousness and leading the people to believe that he has brought a lasting peace Revelation As Christians we should not be concerned with looking for the Antichrist, but we should be looking for the glorious appearance of Jesus Christ Luke , Matthew , Romans In Ephesians Paul lists the wonderful blessings we have as children of God.
We are blessed by being chosen, predestined, accepted redeemed, and forgiven. God also makes His will known to us and gives an inheritance to us. In verse 13 Paul talks about the Christian being sealed "with that Holy Spirit of promise. After we believe, we are sealed by the Holy Spirit.
clublavoute.ca/wewyz-mcher-para-solteros.php In the days when the Bible was written, the seal was used primarily as a stamp of ownership. Roman merchants would travel to Ephesus to choose their goods, stamp them with their signet rings, and then return home. When their goods arrived at the port near Rome, the merchants claimed their merchandise that they had sealed.
Once we believe, God claims us as His possessions. The seal of God's ownership is the Holy Spirit indwelling our lives. Speaking of God, Paul says, "Who hath also sealed us and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. The Holy Spirit is not only the seal of God's ownership, but He is the down payment until He redeems us as His purchased possession.
In Ephesians we are told, "And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Our redemption will not be complete until we are freed from our bodies. Paul speaks of the Christian being "burdened" with a body 2 Corinthians and of all creation groaning, waiting for the redemption of our bodies Romans Paul also speaks of the new bodies God will give to us as a "building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" 2 Corinthians , while he refers to our present bodies as tents Tabernacles. We think of tents as temporary dwellings while a house is permanent.
Our redemption by God will include new heavenly bodies that will not be subject to the pain, fatigue, or temptations of the flesh. In Revelation 5 John describes the scene in heaven as Jesus completes the redemption.
Jesus purchased the earth with His death on the cross and then sealed all those who accepted salvation through Him. Now we are waiting for God to finish His work of redemption in us, and it will take place very soon. In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul discusses the proper balance of the use of the gifts of the Spirit within the Church. In verse 1 the word "gifts" was added by the translators. Paul used the word "pneumatikos" which means "spirituals.
In verse 7 Paul tells the Corinthians that "the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. Instead, the gifts and manifestations of the Spirit are to benefit the whole Church.
From R Finally, Isa was God's final warning before being conquered and dispersed by the Assyrians. The text further describes that "they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages". They should have been understood in the context of this ancient warning. It is sometimes called the "faith of miracles" and is fundamental to the operation of the other two power gifts.
God does not give the gifts to exalt individuals, He gives them to exalt Jesus Christ. The one exception to this rule about gifts is the gift of tongues. The gift of tongues is given to build up the believer. Paul spoke of the abundant use of tongues in his own prayer life but he said, "He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself. Just as there are diversities of gifts and diversities of operations 1 Corinthians so there are different parts and functions in the Body.
Paul often makes the analogy that the body of Christ is like the human body 1 Corinthians , Ephesians Romans When we see the Church as a body, we should see Christ as the head He should be in charge, directing the body. The Holy Spirit is the nervous system of the body, taking the messages from Jesus to the various parts of the body and then coordinating them for smooth movement.
Every part of the body has a vital function to perform. We have to function in that place in the body where God has put us without striving or feeling jealous of those put in other places. If our lives don't seem to be flowing, we should check to see that we are involved in Spirit-directed endeavors rather than in activities that we have chosen for ourselves. The Spirit is sovereign in the bestowing of spiritual gifts 1 Corinthians , the Holy Spirit decides what my gift in the body shall be. The body needs all of its parts to function properly. We need to gather together for worship, fellowship, and ministry.
We should be sensitive to each other, suffering with another member when he suffers, and rejoicing sincerely with another member when he is exalted 1 Corinthians ; Romans In Ephesians 4 Paul discusses the ministry gifts within the body. In verse 12 Paul says the purpose of the ministry gifts is to perfect the saints and to edify "build up" the body of Christ. In verse 13 we read that the Holy Spirit is working in the body to bring us to "the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
In verses Paul again makes the point that the Holy Spirit uses the gifts to build up the body of Christ. In Romans 12 Paul explains how we receive the gifts of the Spirit, how we can be used of God, and how we can find our place in the body. In verses 1 and 2 Paul says that we can know God's perfect will for our lives by presenting our bodies to him "holy and acceptable" and as "a living sacrifice. We cannot allow ourselves to be conformed to worldly patterns, we must be transformed to godliness by "renewing our minds,' that is, by seeking God and waiting on Him for direction.
In verse 3 Paul prefaces his remarks about spiritual gifts with a warning that we not think too highly of ourselves. One of the greatest dangers in the use of the spiritual gifts is pride. We need to constantly be aware that God is demonstrating His grace when He uses us, because we are worthless sinners without Him. God is looking for instruments through which He might do the work that He desires to do in the world 2 Chronicles If our hearts and lives are in harmony with the purposes of God, He will use us as channels for His love, power and Spirit to flow to the needy world.
