Msg #1909 What is Pneumatology?
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
It's been said, “You should never preach doctrine, but you should never preach without doctrine,” just the same, today there is a need to preach some pneumatology – the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:... Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:7-8,13).
When Jesus summarizes a subject, there is no greater summary. This one from John 16 plants the seeds for understanding the person of the Holy Ghost, the purpose of the Holy Ghost and the methods of the Holy Ghost. In a Christians proper relationship with God, the Holy Spirit of God, (“Holy Ghost” when used as the direct object in the Kings English) is not the manifestation of God, but He points us to the manifestation of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. He does not speak to us out loud, but speaks through the words of God that you ding or have memorized.
I jotted in the margin near John 16, “The ministry of the Holy Spirit today, 1) Convict, 2) Convince, 3) Convert, 4) Confirm, and 5) Control, and He is essential in our 1) Worship, 2) Walk, 3) Work, 4) Warfare, and 5) our Witnessing.” Be a student of what it is to be filled with the Holy Spirit of God.
