Holy Spirit 4

         HOLY SPIRIT 4

In Holy Spirit 3, we read that the Holy Spirit literally dwells within the believers body and testifies with our spirit.
We briefly mentioned that the Holy Spirit was essential for salvation; to be made as white as snow and to live in
heaven forever.

Let’s read more versus.

John 3:3  In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is BORN
AGAIN (BORN OF A NEW SPIRIT).”

John 3:5  “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is BORN OF WATER AND THE
SPIRIT.”

Galations 6:8  from THE SPIRIT WILL REAP ETERNAL LIFE.

Ephesians 1:3  Having believed, you were MARKED IN HIM WITH THE A SEAL, THE PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT,
WHO IS A DEPOSIT GUARANTEEING OUR INHERITANCE until the redemption of those who are God’s possession-
to the praise of his glory.

2 Thessalonians 2:13  … from the beginning God chose you to be SAVED THROUGH THE SANCTIFYING WORK
OF THE SPIRIT and through belief in the truth.

The person that receives the Holy Spirit receives the righteousness of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit covers that
persons sinful soul.  He covers their unrighteousness with his righteousness.  At this point, God can look upon a
person and see them as white as snow or as pure as snow.  God, by his very nature, requires pureness or sin-
lessness.  At this point a person has received their inheritance of salvation and can enter heaven.

Salvation is not by any good works that you have done but by the Holy Spirit living in you.

We will be reading more about the Holy Spirit when we review “Point of Salvation” and the “Trinity.”

Next week we will be reading about heaven.  Is heaven a real place and where is heaven?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Jeff
