Good to have everybody back with us again. And praise the Lord for his deliverance. As many have been. Getting over the coronavirus we're going to continue to pray for those affected our talk for this I'll call it an installment but our talk this time has to do with the Holy Spirit. On a contentious issue so I ask for your prayers even as you listen to this. God would would would really move in this scripture reading is taken from Matthew chapter $28.00 Matthew chapter $28.00 will be starting at verse 19 is going to therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost our message this episode is entitled lying on the spirit lying on the Spirit let us pray Father God we thank you for this opportunity to just study a word and this challenging topic what operated You make me just a male upon a wall a rusty sarin nail Lord upon a nail or as a Jew hang a portrait of Jesus Christ that I was not be seen or heard but instead follow us here word from your throne of grace that our prayer in Jesus is precious and holy name Amen Let us start in the book of John and I'll give you a little rationale as to why we're doing this covering this topic tonight John 20 and verse 900 s. then the same day and evening being the 1st day of the week when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews came Jesus and stood in the midst and say in front of them Peace be unto you. And when he says when he had said and he has so said it he showed it unto them his hands and his side then when it where the disciples glad when they saw the Lord would jump in today just where Jesus appears post-resurrection he appears miraculously in the midst of the disciples will get too much into the story but it is a prefer a profound experience as the disciples had at one point thought they had lost their master now here he stands I like the bible says he in order for them to understand who he is he he shows them his hands where the nails pierced him in a side where the spear pierced Him to let them know it was him and the Bible says the disciples were glad. When they saw the Lord were 21 Then said Jesus to them again Peace be unto us my father has sent me even so send I you and when he had said this he breathed on them and said unto them receive. The Holy Ghost so the reason for this talk is this brief talk is I'm hearing from more and more people the question as to whether or not the Holy Spirit is one divine to a person or 3 people have said the Holy Spirit is simply a force the force that comes from Christ and they use this verse to say in fact the Holy Spirit isn't really a 3rd person in the Godhood in this they deny the Trinity which by default means you have to deny the divinity of Christ which I we've talked about before but I don't know how you divine the NIH the divinity of Christ when the disciples worshiped him others worship him and he was we will see as we go through his will be worshiped throughout eternity you can't worship that which is not divine Christ never rejected the worship that he received now. So that's one side of it those who say you know they don't like the Trinity and a lot of it's because there's a lot of Trinity as a Catholic institution the problem with that kind of logic is if you saying it came out of Catholicism which it doesn't it comes out of the scripture and I put a name on it the Trinity which does not appear in the church in the scripture but the principle of a try you God is in the scripture and in the spirit of prophecy so if you're afraid that because the Catholic Church believes in a trinity then you're in trouble because the Catholic Church also believes in a crucifixion they also believe in a resurrection so do you now say Ok we can't believe those things because Catholics believe that that would be foolish and so sums go to his verse and say look the Holy Spirit isn't really a person it's something I came out of Jesus he he breathed it out and and the cycles receive the Holy goes I don't know if that's really what the text seemed to mean he breathes and they receive the Holy Ghost as you going to see the Holy Ghost existed before Jesus breathed here so the question is is the Holy Spirit just a force like in Star Wars and everybody is familiar with the the great epic. Films that came out of I believe originally or even afterwards also books and even comic books the Star Wars saga has made probably billions of dollars at this point if you go all the way back to the one $970.00 s. at the root of this series is the idea there's no God there's no devil there's just a force and you're either on the good side of the force or the dark side of the force the bright lights out of the force or the dark side of the force and you all know it if you are if you've ever seen these movies and I'm not telling you to go and watch them but the premise is that there's no intelligent god. That is just some force inherent to all life and I even believe they believe in every atom that connects everyone and if the force is strong with you you can do all kinds of miraculous things but if the force is strong with you on the side of light or on the side of dark but let me submit to you that is literally no way people view witchcraft there's white witchcraft and black witchcraft good magic and bad magic it's all the same thing just a matter of how you use it to try and reduce the Holy Spirit to simply being a force is blasphemy and I'll jump ahead I'll say it right here it's interesting when you speak of an evil spirit no one says an evil spirit is just a force no one says an evil spirit is just some movement of a thing people understand that if it is an evil spirit is a person a demonic personage behind that spirit yet when it comes to the holy spirit folk want to say in fact that this spirit is not a person not divine blasphemy and the reason this thing is caught on so well is because the devil knows that there is a specific work for the Holy Spirit to do for this photo for the time on earth to end and by by by did not mind the divinity of Christ which is the spirit of man to Christ and by denying the Holy Spirit its personage and its the vanity in fact what we are doing is playing into the enemy's hands of deception in the last days well what does the Bible say there is one wanted to beginning God created the heavens and the earth and God said Let Us make man in our image after our likeness now the word there is l.-o. heem I am. The now tell him is a plural but is always used with a singular verb when it speaks of the true God This indicates a unity and diversity within the nature of God This unity in diversity is revealed in Scripture as the doctrine of the Trinity which you know if you don't like the term Trinity you can pick God that is in the Bible Now notice that Elohim does not end on end which in the Hebrew means dual and I don't have time to get into it but if it was l.-o. Haim which is that I am it would mean that there are 2 in the paralysing but Elohim I am means there's 3 or more and I get this from an excellent book I'm reading right now to get at the a.b.c. books or call up everything I needed to know I learned in Genesis and the author breaks down in which I remember his name he breaks down in that 1st very 1st page is that in fact the doctrine of a try you God is there imbedded and so some people say well but the verbs are singular sort of god had to be singular the plurality they say has to do with the richness of God the depth of his royalty the depth of his God and His Majesty as if to say the God of gods but if you say that how does it make sense that those passages will still be translated let us make man in Our image the problem for Allah he stays and what the Bible is doing because it is not normal he will grammar to disconnect the verb and the content and and the subject in that way but what the Bible is saying is there is a one Mr God and a plurality this is the mystery of God this and here's the funny thing without the Holy Spirit you'll never be at peace with the truth is that the Bible is teaching as we will see. So what does the Bible say x. 20 is the is the Holy Spirit or is it a person x. 20 injuries $25.00 says and when they agreed not among themselves they departed after that Paul had spoken one word well spake the Holy Ghost by Isaias the prophet unto our fathers if the Holy Spirit is just a force that is speaking to people and through people speech means faught thought means personality Acts 13 a verse to as they minister to the Lord and fasted the Holy Ghost said separate me Barnabas and solve for the work where unto I have called them again the Holy Spirit speak this not some nebulous force his star was this force never speaks the force is not a person people speak persons speak as is 6310 but they rebelled as the Old Testament but they rebelled and vexed his Holy Spirit therefore he was turned to be their enemy and fought against them if it's not a person how can it be vexed how can it be angered some nebulous thing is getting vexed and angry doesn't make any sense x. 5 and verse 3 says it like this but Peter said Iris Why had Satan field on Hart to lie to the Holy Ghost and to keep back part of the price of the land could you lie to something that has no sense of it is no sense of being but he goes on x $54.00 says Wow whiles it remained was it not mine own and after it was sold was it not and I'm pirate power y. has now conceived this thing in that heart that was not Leyden to men but under God here it is what in verse 3 it says you like to the Holy Ghost in verse 4 says You lied to God What does that mean it telling you like an equation that the Holy Spirit is divine and it can be lied to which again you don't you can't you can't lie to just some nebulous thing out there you get a lot of gravity. Gravity is a force you can't lie to gravity you get upset gravity gravity is pulls you down. Matthew 12 and verse $31.32 wherefore I say unto you all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven and to men and whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man it shall be forgiven him but whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost it shout not to be forgiven him neither in this world neither in the world to come those 1st of all if the Holy Spirit is not divine I don't know that Jesus would would would say what he saying it number one number 2 if not a person I don't know that you could you could actually blast fim him to be divine and you have to be a person but let me say this to all of those who are trying to say that the Holy Spirit is not a person literally and not a part of the not divine literally what Jesus saying it is when you blast to say to take God and lower him to a level other than his divine statute stature and place is blasphemy if you blaspheme the Holy Spirit by teaching these false doctrines literally what you're doing is causing yourself to be separated from the ability to be forgiven for that Jesus not just in lists world but in the world to come John 1613 and 14 how be it when he the Spirit of truth is come he will guide you into all truth for he shall not speak of himself but whatsoever he shall hear that shall he speak and he will show that you things to come he shall glorify me for he shall receive each I receive of mine and shall show it unto you again if the Holy Spirit is just some force the old guy doing to truth I was a force not speak of himself speak what it hears. And show you what does that come sounds like a teacher in fact when Jesus says you know leave the comforter there are some ways you could translate that word teacher leader someone who shows you something that doesn't sound like some nebulous force to force and starwars doesn't teach anybody anything gravity doesn't educate people Spirit of Prophecy says it like this she says we need to realize that the Holy Spirit who is as much a person as God is a person is walking through these grounds of Angeles and 1616.5 The Holy Spirit or the person he bears witness with our spirits that we are the children of God evangelism 616.6 The Holy Spirit has a personality else he could not bear witness to our spirits and with our spirits that we are the children of God he must also be a divine person else we could not search out the secrets which lie hidden in the mind of God for what men know the things of a man save the spirit of man which is in him even so the things of God nor no man but the Spirit of God vandalisms $617.00 the power of God in the 3rd person the prince of the power of evil can only be held in check by the power of God in the 3rd Person of the Godhead the Holy Spirit this is why they want to dismantle this doctrine they want to bring down the Holy Spirit this is the work of Satan among people who think they are believers who think they've gotten some extra light if you remove the Holy Spirit from its proper position you lose the protection the Holy Spirit offers and cooperation with the 3 highest powers we are to cooperate with the 3 highest powers in heaven the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost and these powers will walk through us making us workers together with God evangelism 617.2. And I says here the Saints in the kingdom of God are accepted in the Beloved they hear Comey blessed of my Father inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world Matthew 2534 and then the golden harps are touched and the music flows all through the heavenly host and they fall down and worship the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit manuscript 139 let me say something it is evident that you cannot make an argument from a spirit of prophecy and the Holy Spirit is not a person and that is not divine but here again he like Christ receives worship the comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven is the spirit in all the fullness of the Godhead making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal savior there are 3 living persons of the heavenly trio in the name of these 3 great powers the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized and these powers will cooperate with the obedience subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ manuscript 21 the mighty power of the Holy Spirit works an entire transformation of the character of the human age and this is why I don't know what you believe in the Holy Ghost when a man is filled with the spirit the more severely he is tested and tried the more clearly he proves that he is a representative of Christ the peace that dwells in the soul is seen on the countenance the words and actions expressed the love of the Savior there is no striving for the highest place self is renounced the name of Jesus is written on all that is said and done and why goes on to say we make Talk of the blessings of the Holy Spirit. But let's be prepare ourselves for its reception what avail Our works are we striving with all our power to attain to the stature of men and women in Christ are we seeking for his fullness ever pressing toward the mark set before us the perfection of his character they don't want you to believe Satan does not want you to believe in the work of the person the 3rd Person of the Godhead the Holy Spirit because it is the work of the Holy Spirit that perfect the character fact when we did our talk on the seal of the living God It is the Holy Spirit that seals it is the Holy Spirit that works in the frontal lobe of the brain the supreme the glory of God falling on the mind of man to cause us to live a godly and Christian life the Holy Spirit is not a person he can guide and lead if he just some force all he can do is move you push you know he gets intimate and he connects with us and he guides and directs leading us into all truth and in a time of great deception we need the Holy Spirit more now than ever and I'm not talking about running around in circles in church and speaking in tongues that no one knows I'm not talking about fake miracles being performed on folk in front of a lot of other people and and trying to put that on a holy spirit note I am talking about the deep abiding presence of the spirit of the living God that person even you to will and to do what God has for you to do I am talking about what happens when nobody's looking transformation of character the humbling of ourselves before God Spirit of Prophecy says of the Lord's people reach this mark they will be sealed in their foreheads filled with the spirit it will be complete in Christ the recording angel to clear. It is finished and that's one of you in here on June 10th 1000 know to church was happening is that simple doctrines are beginning to be peeled away the next series I want to do and put out next week will deal with feasts in the festivals and should Christians be keeping them amazed that there are people now doing 23 and Me trying to see if they are of Hebrew or Jewish descent flying to Israel to be part of the rebuilding of the temple the deceptions are growing bolder and bolder all while the world is falling into dismay while the signs of God are beginning to flash that the Lord is soon to come some spending their time sneaking around our churches trying to convince people of say 10 doctrines Scripture says the doctrines of devils days I'm not least things for yourself noted it was the Spirit of God that hovered over the water at creation note it is the Holy Spirit Christ sent to be a comforter and a force can't comfort you not like someone with personality not like the 3rd part of the Godhead can and in these times some of us need comfort if you remove the Holy Spirit you're in trouble so my prayer is we study this thing we understand these truths or reject the lies that are placing on the Holy Spirit. Father God we thank you Lord for this is the study Lord cleared of the Holy Spirit as divine cleared a Holy Spirit as a person clear that the Holy Spirit will be is worthy to even be worshiped. Laura is also clear that some want to remove the Holy Spirit in his do biblical. Presentation because it is the work of the Holy Ghost in each one of us that will allow us to have the character of Jesus Christ the character the Jesus will be looking for when he returns. Father God I was not to be his prayer in Jesus' presence in.
