    Here's a great free audio tape to listen to about the Holy Spirit.
    It talks about OT and NT "appearances" of the Holy Spirit.


    It also gets into John. 14 and 15 --- the Comforter, or as many other translations call it, the Advocate or Counselor ---- also, 1Jn. 2:1.


    This tape is largely about the Holy Spirit, not Trinity.

    It discusses the new role of the Holy Spirit as our personal Advocate - Counselor - Consigliere.

    Jesus seems to say the giving of the Holy Spirit (Comforter) is a future event, but John the Baptist's parents were filled with the Holy Spirit already (Lk 1:41, 67). This is discussed in the tape.

    If you have the interest, please listen. Thank you.

    registration is quick and free ---

    If we do a study on the actions, words, character, appearances, of the Holy Spirit OT and NT I believe you are right - we will find that He is and-has-always-been THE critical link in the Gospel between man and heaven.

    His role is critical in the NEW BIRTH even before the cross (John 3).

    His role has always been to convict the world of sin and righteousness and judgment.

    Part of the key to understand the work of the Person of the Holy Spirit - is to understand the total depravity of man. Once you accept that - you see that all the "good" saints of Heb 11 are simply those who have been "born again" -- "new Creations" - born of the Spirit - from Adam to Revelation.

    One problem - SIN.

    One solution - the Gospel

    ONE Gospel.

    In Christ,

    Bob
