For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans | View whole chapter | See verse in context And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.   When we love each other from the heart, in deed and truth and not just in word, it is the Spirit himself bearing witness that we are the children of God. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God in love are the children of God (Romans ; Galatians , 22).

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, John the Baptist prophesied: "I'm baptizing you here in the river, turning your old life in for a kingdom life. The real action comes next: The main character in this drama-compared to him I'm a mere stagehand-will ignite the kingdom life within you, a fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. A. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would reprove the world of sin because people do not believe in Him (John ). The only sin that condemns a man is the continual rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour (John ).

He asked if they had received the Holy Spirit since they believed. Their answer was, "We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost" (Acts ).* Paul shared the message of the ministry of the Holy Spirit with these Christians (Acts 19). Today it is equally important that believers understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Living Stream Ministry publishes the works of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, providing the authoritative and definitive collections of treasures from these two servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. The writings of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee focus on the enjoyment of the divine life, which all the believers possess, and on the building up of the.

The Witness of the Spirit is a clear and comprehensive treatment of the teaching of the Word of God concerning the inner witness of the Spirit of God.

The book opens with an account of Calvin's and Luther's contribution to this important theme, followed by a survey of the theological reflection upon this subject from the days of the early Cited by: 2.

He is involved not only in the inspiration of Scripture, but is also a witness to Scripture’s truthfulness. This is what we call the “internal testimony” of the Holy Spirit. In other words, the Holy Spirit provides a testimony that takes place inside of us—He bears witness to our spirits that the Bible is the Word of God.

This essay traces the historical articulation of the Protestant doctrine of the Witness of the Spirit as an immediate pre-reflective personal experience in the heart of the believer from its initial articulation by John Calvin to the present day.

What Does the Holy Spirit Do. 10 Roles in Christian's Life. In fact, the witness of the Spirit is virtually unheard of in most churches today. Yet the fact is, believers need the Spirit's witness as never before.

And we're going to. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

Even so, episodes of the sort mentioned above do not last forever. The clouds that becloud the indirect witness part, and Wesley returns to his characteristic insistence that the testimony which assures believers is finally a joint testimony as the fruits of the Spirit appear, however slenderly.

In the book of Acts there are five particular cases of the outward filling. The first case was on the day of Pentecost. On that day the Holy Spirit came down upon the disciples, and they were filled with the Spirit outwardly.

The second case was with the group of believers in Samaria, in Acts 8. The sum of all this is: The testimony of the Spirit is an inward impression on the souls of believers, whereby the Spirit of God directly testifies to their spirit, that they are children of God.

And it is not questioned, whether there is a testimony of the Spirit; but whether there is an direct testimony; whether there is any other than that which arises from a consciousness of the fruit of the Spirit.

The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: Spirit. Romans ,26 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

2 Corinthians Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. The center of the witness is that Jesus is Lord and Christ [Acts ], the truth that the antichrists deny but which the believers affirm [1 John ].

New Heart English Bible The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying, Aramaic Bible in Plain English But The Spirit of Holiness also testifies to us, who says: GOD'S WORD® Translation The Holy Spirit tells us the same thing: New American Standard And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying, King James As you believe the promises of salvation in Jesus such as Johnthe Holy Spirit witnesses, convicts you, of the fact.

He bears witness with your spirit, (the spirit of a person is their conscience as 1 Corinthiansand Romans show), that you are a child of God. The spirit which bears witness is the believer's own spirit believing the testimony of Christ the Spirit through the apostles.

Now, of course, if you have the witness of the Spirit indwelling you then you must believe the preacher who also has the witness and tells you: "The prophets are telling us that great changes are going to take place in our church.

• The Holy Spirit testifies with our spirit by giving us the desire and the ability to live in obedience to the Lord. • The Holy Spirit testifies with our spirit by producing love in our hearts for fellow believers.

• The Holy Spirit testifies with our Spirit by producing in us a life that only He can create. THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SPIRIT IN THE FIVE CASES IN ACTS. We may now come back to the five cases of receiving the Spirit outwardly in the book of Acts. In the first case, all the disciples were powerful on the day of Pentecost, and they had the release, boldness, and encouragement.

They dared to speak as the Lord led. Of the new birth, Paul explicitly states, "The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit, that we are God's children" (Romans ), and John says, "Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart" (1 John ). These passages declare the fact of a divine witness.

The Holy Spirit and the Jehovah’s Witness by John | Posted on J J One of the chief objections that Jehovah’s Witnesses have toward orthodox Christianity is a denial of the personhood or personality of the Holy Spirit (along with a denial of Christ’s deity and a host of other fundamental beliefs).

Today, let’s briefly consider a few scripture references that are very clear to us concerning the Spirit of God in the life of the believer. Luke records in the book of Acts in Chapter 1 versesThe Risen Christ, said to his disciples “you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit., you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon.

In the end, it becomes pretty simple. The witness of the Spirit is that we believe. Period. It is the gift of faith that is from the Spirit. It is the Spirit that witnesses to our Spirit that the Gospel is correct. The result is our longing for something better and crying out to God in groans exclaiming “Abba!”.The Holy Spirit has created a hunger for God in the hearts of millions.

I have discovered that at least 25 to 50 percent of nonbelievers are ready to receive Christ in most parts of the world if properly approached, one on one, by a trained Spirit-empowered witness.The witness of the Spirit in the hearts of believers: open'd and apply'd in a sermon preach'd at the lecture in Watertown, Sept.
