    1. Study Romans too:
      Romans 8:26-27 26In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.


    2. 50 Things the Holy Spirit Does
      taken from the Blog of Frank Viola http://frankviola.org/2010/11/18/50-things-the-holy-spirit-does/
      This post is an excerpt from my new book, Jesus Now: Unveiling the Present-Day Ministry of Christ.

      The book includes many lists like this one while highlighting the 7 aspects of Christ’s present-day ministry.
      Here are the 50 Things the Holy Spirit Does
      1. The Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:8).
      2. The Spirit guides us into all truth (John 16:13).
      3. The Spirit regenerates us (John 3:5-8; Titus 3:5).
      4. The Spirit glorifies and testifies of Christ (John 15:26; 16:14).
      5. The Spirit reveals Christ to us and in us (John 16:14-15).
      6. The Spirit leads us (Rom. 8:14; Gal. 5:18; Matt. 4:1; Luke 4:1).
      7. The Spirit sanctifies us (2 Thess. 2:13; 1 Pet. 1:2; Rom. 5:16).
      8. The Spirit empowers us (Luke 4:14; 24:49; Rom. 15:19; Acts 1:8).
      9. The Spirit fills us (Eph. 5:18; Acts 2:4; 4:8, 31; 9:17).
      10. The Spirit teaches us to pray (Rom. 8:26-27; Jude 1:20).
      11. The Spirit bears witness in us that we are children of God (Rom. 8:16).
      12. The Spirit produces in us the fruit or evidence of His work and presence (Gal. 5:22-23).
      13. The Spirit distributes spiritual gifts and manifestations (the outshining) of His presence to and through the body (1 Cor. 12:4, 8-10; Heb. 2:4).
      14. The Spirit anoints us for ministry (Luke 4:18; Acts 10:38).
      15. The Spirit washes and renews us (Titus 3:5).
      16. The Spirit brings unity and oneness to the body (Eph. 4:3; 2:14-18). Here the Holy Spirit plays the same role that He plays in the Godhead. The Spirit is the life that unites Father and Son. The Spirit plays the same role in the church. When the Holy Spirit is operating in a group of people, He unites them in love. Therefore, a sure evidence of the Holy Spirit working in a group is Love and Unity. Not signs and wonders (those are seasonal and can be counterfeited).
      17. The Spirit is our guarantee and deposit of the future resurrection (2 Cor. 1:22; 2 Cor. 5:5).
      18. The Spirit seals us unto the day of redemption (Eph. 1:13; 4:30).
      19. The Spirit sets us free from the law of sin and death (Rom. 8:2).
      20. The Spirit quickens our mortal bodies (Rom. 8:11).
      21. The Spirit reveals the deep things of God to us (1 Cor. 2:10).
      22. The Spirit reveals what has been given to us from God (1 Cor. 2:12).
      23. The Spirit dwells in us (Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 3:16; 2 Tim. 1:14; John 14:17).
      24. The Spirit speaks to, in, and through us (1 Cor. 12:3; 1 Tim. 4:1; Rev. 2:11; Heb 3:7; Matt. 10:20; Acts 2:4; 8:29; 10:19; 11:12, 28; 13:2; 16:6,7; 21:4,11).
      25. The Spirit is the agent by which we are baptized into the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13).

    3. Was surfing the Bing search and saw the Holy Spirit Prep tennis team. The post tied their mental compatibility in training to the Holy Spirit. What do the TOT people think of this? I don’t think this has any religious ties.


  1. • The Triune God is Faith, Son & Holy Spirit. Each one is equally important and each on is special. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God within us and He is a person just as the Father and Son are persons. The Holy Spirit is Gods power within us. Sometimes He is referred to as Good News.
    • With this power in us, we are to spread the Good News to everyone we meet, encouraging them to believe and trust and initiate faith in them.
    • It takes true faith to absorb all of this. The Holy Spirit is absorbed within us in different ways – ways that are comfortable to each individual. Pray to ask God to fill us with the Holy Spirit and guide us through situations according to God’s will.
    • The word Spirit reflects breath – by our faith, we may inhale love and power from the spirit (and exhale our sinful thought…. this is comforting! Any situation – through Gods will)
    • The Holy Spirit is received in baptism, and hopefully the baptized one will work and grow in faith to retain that power of the Spirit. As they grow they will ask God to re-fill them with the Holy Spirit. When we need help – (He is our helper and comforter).
    • The Holy Spirit will guide us through Gods will – though we must ask Him. The Holy Spirit understands us and knows we are always under pressure to do sinful things that we are tempted to do -ask Him for whatever – JUST ASK!.

    1. -Last Chapter in John is where Jesus says He’s leaving the Holy Spirit

      -It’s quite a mystery. This shows /gods smartness. The Holy Spirit is always there to take care of us. JUST IN CASE

      -How can you have facts when we are talking about faith?
