Can any man really have the right to teach about Him? Based on what experience? You can teach on financing, because you have so much with respect to the richest man. You can teach about academics with respect to a professor’s standard, but what is the reference when you talk about the Holy Spirit. Is it because you heal the sick?
What standard actually qualifies us to talk about Him? This is not an issue of condemnation, this is an acknowledgement that we know so little about Him. The greatest of us in the matters of the Spirit is a toddler.
The Holy Spirit, the most misunderstood Personality. The Holy Spirit is not just a force, when you learn His presence, you will know how cheap Satan is.
So He shows Zerubbabel saying “Then he answered and spake unto me saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6),
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).
Three great mysteries. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, you have only this two, you will fail in life. You need the communion, the participation, the partnership, the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. When we talk about the Holy Spirit, there are many denominations today, sadly, who do not believe He is a person, who do not even believe in His existence. There are some denominations who do not even believe the doctrine of the Trinity, the trio nature of God, three persons coexisting in one.
Theologically, there is no reference from Genesis to Revelation where in this 66 books, you hear the word “Trinity”, so then what is the proof of the trio nature of God. The first evidence with scriptures, of God manifesting as more than one person is (Genesis 1), it says in the beginning, God, the word ‘God’ here in Hebrew is Elohim, which is plural, so we see here that the Bible is referencing, based on the Hebrew manuals that this personality is not just an individual.
In (verse 2), “The earth was without form and void and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”. Take note, the first single personality of the trinity revealed from scripture is not the Father, not the word, who we know to be called the Son, Jesus, but the Spirit of God. So we see one manifestation of the trinity. The second evidence, Acts 7:54-59. This was when Stephen was about to be stoned. We get to know that when they heard that Stephen said these things, they gnashed their teeth at him. But he, full of the Holy Spirit, one of the personality of the trinity. The Bible says, “He looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. We see the manifestation of the trio nature of God. For some of you, this looks basic, but other people from different denominations and even unbelievers need to understand the basics, so it is important to start from a theological foundation, so that it does not look like the Holy Spirit is a Pentecostal or charismatic phenomenon.
The subject of the person and the ministry of the Holy Spirit in my opinion is the most misunderstood and most neglected teaching in the body of Christ. I don’t think there is scarceness with the teachings of Jesus as the Son of God. I don’t think there is scarceness in the revelation of the Fatherhood of God, especially new testament believers.
