The Person You Need To Know
April 22, 2023

1 Corinthians 3:16
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

Studies Show The Most Asked Question Is…
How Can I Know The Will Of God?

The Will of God Has Two Categories:
1) General Will of God
The Word of God (The Bible)
How to be Married

2) Specific Will of God
The Holy Spirit
Who To Marry

The Father’s Soul
Matt 12:18
“Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased! I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.

Jesus The Son’s Soul
Matt 26:38
Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.”

The Holy Spirit’s Soul
Hebrews 10:38
Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.

Some Believe That The Holy Spirit Is A Force To Be Used

John 16:13
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

John 14:16-17
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

John 14:26
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

John 15:26
“But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

John 16:7
Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

John 16:12-13
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”

He Is Not A Power To Be Used But A Person To Get To Know!!!!!!

How Do We Know He Is A Person?

Only A Person Has A Soul
Mind – Thoughts
Will – Desires
Emotions – Feelings

The Holy Spirit Has:
Thoughts – Desires – Feelings

The Holy Spirit Helps Us:
Think – How God Thinks
Desire – What God Desires
Feel – What God Feels

The Holy Spirit Has A Mind
The Mind of God

Romans 8:26
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

He Does Not Have An IQ
Nothing Has Ever Occurred To Him

He Knows Everything
About Everything

He Has A Will
The Will of God

Acts 16:6
Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia.

The Holy Spirit Has Emotions
The Emotions of God

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Ephesians 4:30
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Ephesians 4:25-32
Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Ever Lose Someone Close
Like A Mother or Father?
You Didn’t Lose Relationship
But We Lose The Fellowship

2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO
IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!
The Greatest Desire of The Holy Spirit
Is Fellowship
You Can’t Have A Personal Relationship With Him Through Someone Else
