My Comments: I have elected to continue the study using only the American Standard Version as it is in the Public Domain. Please feel free to read the version you already have though please be aware some are better translations than others. Some Bibles have added books that should not be in them, yet it is good for study to compare versions and even go to the Greek and Hebrew studies on the words.
Also, you may want to and I suggest it is good to do so, read the whole chapter or 20 verses before and 20 after so you get a bigger picture of what God is trying to educate us about Him. Looking at the verses in context is important and since I would not be able to put whole chapters here I do encourage all to study the whole word of God.
The Holy Spirit, Holy Wind or Spirit is not very well understood. Yes, most will agree He is the third person in the Holy Trinity yet they do not give much thought to Him. His job is to point us to Jesus yet He does so much for us as He did for the Apostles and the early Christians or followers of The Way.
The Holy Spirit filled them as He does with us, with knowledge, understanding and often gave them and us abilities in order to reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ as He did with Stephen, Paul and others. I hope you are enjoying the study of the third person of the Holy Trinity and will comment to enlighten me and others who read the study. It is always good to share what the Holy Spirit is or has taught us so the body will be enlightened.
(note: though I felt these verses and the Chapters they came from contained better than I could comment I chose to not say as much on this one yet if someone has questions feel free to ask and I will endeavor to answer with knowledge and understanding from our Lord Jesus).
Abba Father, thank You so much for sending Your Son Jesus and when He left for sending Your Spirit to guide, and fill us with knowledge and understanding so we will be instruments for bringing others to You through the Lord Jesus. May we come to know and walk with Him as intimately as we do with You and Your Son Jesus. We pray this in Jesus name through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
