Holy Spirit Study 6

This study in the Holy Spirit will encompass four verses. Ponder them well and please study the verses before and after to grasp the full meaning and context. I would love to hear your comments. 

Philippians 1:19- Philippians 1:19, American Standard Version (ASV), American Standard Version, Copyright © 1901 by Public Domain

19 For I know that this shall turn out to my salvation, through your supplication and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

The Spirit of Jesus Christ brings salvation because Jesus the Man has been raised to the right hand of the Father where He Jesus sends forth the Holy Spirit.

Acts 2:32-33, (ASV)

32 This Jesus did God raise up, whereof we all are witnesses.

33 Being therefore by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath poured forth this, which ye see and hear.

More affirmation of Jesus being raised up and sending forth the Holy Ghost on His followers as promised. And He sends Him to us as well if we are followers of Jesus the Christ the Son of God and believe He was crucified for our sin, died and was raised up on the third day and sits at the right hand of the Father.

Acts 16:6-7, (ASV)

And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden of the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia;

and when they were come over against Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia; and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not;

This shows the relationship of Jesus the man as the Spirit of Jesus being the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost.

Galatians 4:4-6, (ASV)

but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,

that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

And because ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

The Spirit of His Son testifies to the sonship of the believer so we can cry Abba Father. It becomes a joyous union where we are joined to the Father through the Son by the Holy Spirit. No longer are we in bondage to the world or our sin nature. We have been liberated and this liberty gives us joy. We can trust God to always be with us even when it may appear to the world that He has abandoned us when we go through challenges and difficulties yet we have the spirit of adoption because we are filled with the Holy Spirit who works in us to help us become more like Jesus.

Abba Father, there is so much for us to learn in Your Word about You, Your Son, and the Holy Spirit. Open our hearts and our minds and fill us with Your understanding and knowledge so we may worship You more and rejoice in all Your wonders and the blessings You have bestowed and are bestowing on us. We praise You Father for loving us so much You sent Your Son to be the propitiation for our sin. We praise You for sending forth Your Holy Spirit to teach, enlighten and grow understanding in us as He changes us to be more like Jesus. My heart is filled with joy knowing You are always with me to go with me through all the trials and tribulations of this world. I know we, in studying You Word, will be enriched and gain insights unimaginable if we trust You and persevere in the study of Your Word with the help of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ. Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit for this study and help us through it. In Jesus name. Amen.
