The Holy Spirit and You
Billy Graham – The Holy Spirit and You. Text: John 14:16-18. And I will ask the Father and He will give you another counselor to be with you forever, the spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because they neither seems Him nor knows Him, but ye know Him for He lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you, I will come to you.
Billy G. said, the word comforter comes from a Greek word and it means advocate; the one who helps along side. The comforter was what Jesus Christ was promising just before he was to die on the cross, be resurrected and ascended into heaven. That He is going to send a comforter, someone that helps alongside. Apostle Paul wrote and said, now concerning matters pertaining to the spirit, I will not have you ignorant. Billy G. said, it is impossible to understand the bible, Christian living or the structure of the church, without understanding something about the person and the work of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is not a drug or an engine, or something that we can refers to as ‘it” He is God. Holy Spirit is someone, and “Holy” indicates that He is Holy within Himself “Holy Spirit” the “Spirit” is used in contrast to that which is flesh or material. The bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. There is a trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, and no one can explain.
The bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is Omnipotent (all powerful) Micah 3:8. The bible also teaches that the Holy Spirit is Omnipresent (His present everywhere) Psalms 139:7. You can’t go anywhere and get away from the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is everywhere. And that is the reason, when you have a sense of guilt many times by the Holy Spirit, that guilt will go with you, even if you travel to a far Ireland trying to get rid of it. The Holy Spirit convicts you of sin.
One of the reasons Christ went away, to get out of the human body, so that He can be everywhere at the same time. As long as He resides in human body, He can only be in one place in one time. But when He left and sent the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is not confined to a body; the Holy Spirit can be all over the world at the same time…
