The Holy Spirit

Jesus said it was better for Him to go back to the Father or else the Comforter or the holy spirit would not come. He promised that He would send the promise of the holy Spirit upon those who believed in Him. The purpose of Jesus' sacrifice was to obtain the holy spirit baptism for men. How precious it is that the spirit of God can come and dwell in our hearts. But what is its' role? Is it necessary or just optional? How do you know if you have received the spirit?

Study the resource on this page to come to a better understanding of the wonderful gift of life that is given to us when we receive the holy spirit.

Video - Did The Apostles Think Of The Holy Spirit As A Person?

In this 3 part video, Pastor John Clark, Sr., examines the evidence from the Greek New Testament that shows that the apostles never referred to the holy spirit as a person even though they were free to depart from the basic rules of Greek grammar if they thought they were speaking of a person. Pastor John teaches some very simple, basic Greek grammar to show what the apostles could and did do with Greek words but never did in the case of the holy spirit. This class was taught to people with no background in Greek so don't worry that you know nothing about Greek!

"Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission [of sins]."
Heb. 9:22

Remission of sins does not happen when a person repeats a few verses of Scripture and "claims" it. Nor does it happen when a minister pronounces that someone "got saved". It does not happen when someone joins any one of Christianity's many churches. Remission of sins happens when the blood of Christ, the holy Spirit of God, enters and washes a soul from sin. The Bible calls this experience the "baptism of the holy Ghost", or "being born again", or "conversion". It is an experience that is of such importance that God gave His only begotten Son that we might have it. Without this experience, none will escape the coming wrath of God. With it, all may come to know the incomparable love of God, for, "the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the holy Ghost which He has given to us." (Rom. 5:5).

Remission of sins is a gift offered to lowly man by a very tender-hearted Creator. We can only demonstrate our gratitude for His love by asking Him for it.
