MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT (teaching four)

ETERNAL LIFE BEGINS WITH JESUS OUR SAVIOR WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO BECOME RIGHTEOUS AGAIN AND TEACHES US HOW TO STAY RIGHTEOUS .

RIGHTEOUSNESS LEADS TO HOLINESS

THAT LEADS TO ETERNAL LIFE

JESUS IS THE ONE WHO BAPTIZE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

Joh 1:18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

Joh 1:32  Then John gave this testimony: “I saw THE SPIRIT COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN AS A DOVE AND REMAIN ON HIM.                                                                                                                                                                                                         Joh 1:33  And I myself did not know HIM, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘THE MAN ON WHOM you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’

Joh 1:34  I have seen and I testify that THIS IS GOD’S CHOSEN ONE.”

Mat 3:11  “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes ONE WHO IS MORE POWERFUL THAN I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. HE WILL BAPTIZE you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Mat 3:12  His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

Mat 3:13  Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.

Mat 3:14  But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

Mat_3:15  Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Then John consented.

Mat 3:16  As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

Mat 3:17  And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Mar 1:10  Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, HE SAW heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.

Mar 1:11  And a voice came from heaven:YOU ARE MY SON, WHOM I LOVE; with you I am well pleased.”

THE MOMENT JESUS WAS BAPTISED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT ,

THE HOLY SPIRIT SENT HIM TO THE WILDERNISS AND HE OBEYED

Mar 1:12  At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness,

Luk 4:1  Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

Mar 1:13  and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.

Mat 4:1  Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

Mat 4:2  After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.

Mat 4:3  The tempter came to him and said, , “IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD, tell these stones to become bread.”

Mat 4:4  Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

Mat 4:5  Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.

Mat 4:6  “If you are THE SON OF GOD, he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'”

Mat 4:7  Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”

Mat 4:8  Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.

Mat 4:9  “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

Mat 4:10  Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'”

Mat 4:11  Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

WHILE JESUS WAS IN THE WORLD HE PROMISED THAT HE WILL SEND THE HOLY SPIRIT AFTER HE HAS RISIN

Joh 14:15  “If you love me, keep my commands.

Joh 14:16  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever–

Joh 14:17  the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

Joh 14:18  I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

Joh 14:19  Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.

Joh 14:20  On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.

Joh 14:21  Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

Joh 14:22  Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”

Joh 14:23  Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with

Joh_14:26  But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Joh_15:26  “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father–the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father–he will testify about me.

Joh_16:7  But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

 

AFTER JESUS WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD HE AGAIN PROMISED THEM THAT HE WILL SEND THEM THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE WITH THEM

Luk 24:34  and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.”

Luk 24:35  Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.

Luk 24:36  While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

Luk 24:46  He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,

Luk 24:47  and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luk 24:48  You are witnesses of these things.

Luk 24:49  I AM GOING TO SEND YOU WHAT MY FATHER HAS PROMISED; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with POWER from on high.”

Luk 24:50  When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them.

Luk 24:51  While he was blessing them, HE LEFT THEM AND WAS TAKEN UP INTO HEAVEN.

Act 1:1  In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach

Act 1:2  until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through THE HOLY SPIRIT to the apostles he had chosen.

Act 1:3  After his suffering, HE PRESENTED HIMSELF TO THEM AND GAVE MANY CONVINCING PROOFS THAT HE WAS ALIVE. HE APPEARED TO THEM over a period of forty days and SPOKE ABOUT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Act 1:4  ON ONE OCCASION, WHILE HE WAS EATING WITH THEM, HE GAVE THEM THIS COMMAND: “DO NOT LEAVE JERUSALEM, BUT WAIT FOR THE GIFT my Father PROMISED, WHICH you have heard me SPEAK ABOUT.

Act 1:5  For John baptized with water, but in a few days YOU WILL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.”

Act 1:7  He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.

Act 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Act 1:9  After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

Act 1:10  They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them.

Act 1:11  “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

HE SENT THE  PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT FROM THE FATHER

Act 2:1  When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.

Act 2:2  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

Act 2:3  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.

Act 2:4  All of them WERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

BECAUSE JESUS IS WITH THE FATHER NOW AND NOT IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL GUIDE YOU HOW TO STAY RIGHTEOUS

Joh 16:7  But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

Joh 16:8  When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:

Joh 16:9  about sin, because people do not believe in me;

Joh 16:10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer;

( BECAUSE JESUS WENT BACK TO HEAVEN AND COULD NOT CONTINUE HIS TEACHING HIMSELF, HE SENT THE HOLY SPIRIT TO CONTINUE THE TASK)

Joh_14:16  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever

((( Act 5:32  We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”

Jas 2:24  You see that  a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.

1Jn_2:29  If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.

1Jn_3:7  Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. )))

Joh_14:26  But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom THE FATHER WILL SEND in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Joh_15:26  “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you FROM THE FATHER–the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father–he will testify about ME.

Joh_16:7  But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

((Jer 31:33  “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I WILL BE THEIR GOD, and they will be MY people.))

((( 2Co_3:3  You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of THE LIVING GOD, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

THE MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT IS THE MINISTRY THAT BRINGS RIGHTEOUSNESS

2Co_3:8  will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious?

2Co_3:9  If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! )))

Heb_12:14  Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

IT IS ONLY THE RIGHTEOUS CHRISTIANS WHO WILL BE TAKEN UP WITH THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS( Some people call it the RAPTURE)

Mat 25:41  “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

Mat 25:46  “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Mat 13:40  “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.

Mat 13:41  The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.

Mat 13:42  They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 13:43  Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

Mat_13:49  This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

Mat 13:50  and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 25:46  “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
