Holy Spirit Everywhere Everyday Series

May 24, 2020 • Lead Pastor Tim Moen

John 14:16-18 16 “ And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. 18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 15:26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.” John 16:7-15 7 “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. The HOLY SPIRIT Helps us by Convicting Us Of Sin John 16:8 “And when he comes (that is the Holy Spirit), he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.” This world is full of sin! Everyone of us were born sinners! Romans 3:23 “For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God!” The HOLY SPIRIT Helps Us To Grow Up Spiritually 1 Peter 1:3 “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence.” The HOLY SPIRIT Is Our Teacher John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” James 1:5 “ If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. Job 28:17-19 (NLT) 17 “Wisdom is more valuable than gold and crystal. It cannot be purchased with jewels mounted in fine gold. 18 Coral and jasper are worthless in trying to get it. The price of wisdom is far above rubies. 19 Precious peridot from Ethiopia cannot be exchanged for it. It’s worth more than the purest gold. The HOLY SPIRIT Is Our COMPANION! John 14:18 Jesus said, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” Also reference: Deuteronomy 31:6 and Hebrews 13:5 John 14:16 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever.” The HOLY SPIRIT... Helps us in our weakness! Romans 8:26-27 26 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” The Holy Spirit... Will Give Us Daily Strength! Ephesians 3:16 “That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being.”

The Seal

The Holy Spirit’s role in our lives... and our understanding of that role... is vital to our THRIVING here on earth in Christ! Romans 11:20-21 20 That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief (explain the branches), but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. Scriptures like this one... sometimes cause people to question their faith. Understanding Salvation: Romans 10:9-10 9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. You Believe You Confess You Receive by Faith the promise of God I confess Jesus Christ IS Lord! I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead! I received by faith... The Salvation of the Lord through Jesus Christ! You are Forgiven! You have New Life! You have been given the Holy Spirit You possess Eternal Life You have just received God’s gift of Salvation! Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Salvation through Christ and the Cross, Grace and the Holy Spirit can only be received by Faith The Holy Spirit is our PRESERVER. Ephesians 1:13-14 13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13 When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit. Revelation 14:1 I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him, one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. Saved Sanctified Sealed by the Holy Spirit All of this transpires at Salvation! 2 Corinthians 4:16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. Matthew 24:9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. Luke 22:42 Jesus said, Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done. Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Revelations 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Romans 5:5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

The Extreme Heart & Mind Make Over - Soul Edition

One of the main purposes of the Holy Spirit is for the work of Sanctification in our lives! Sanctification is "the state of proper functioning." To Sanctify is to set that person or thing apart for its intended use for which it was purposed by its designer. God's design and purposes. To be set apart... Means to be made HOLY! 1. Sanctification... begins at salvation 2. Sanctification... will continue throughout our whole lives Judges 15:14 “As Samson arrived at Lehi, the Philistines came shouting in triumph. But the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon Samson, and he snapped the ropes on his arms as if they were burnt strands of flax, and they fell from his wrists.” 1 Chronicles 12:18 “Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, the leader of the Thirty, and he said, ‘We are yours, David! We are on your side, son of Jesse. Peace and prosperity be with you, and success to all who help you, for your God is the one who helps you.’ So David let them join him, and he made them officers over his troops. Psalm 51:11 “Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.” Ezekiel 11:5 “Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon me, and he told me to say, “This is what the Lord says to the people of Israel: I know what you are saying, for I know every thought that comes into your minds.” John 14:17 “He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.” Two key things we read here... 1. The Holy Spirit will lead people in all Truth. 2. The Holy Spirit will be in you. Jesus promised that after His resurrection God would send the Holy Spirit. He would not just be with them (the disciples), but He would be IN THEM! 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body”. Your body after conversion and now being a Christ-follower becomes a TEMPLE of the Hoy Spirit! The BELIEVER in Christ has become the inner sanctum of God and this is where the Holy Spirit dwells. Ephesians 1:7 “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.” The Scripture actually says that the believer is inhabited or in-dwelt spiritually in three ways: 1. By God - Jesus Christ Colossians 1:27 “To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” 2. By God - The Father... 1 John 4:15 “Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.” 3. By God - The Holy Spirit! The main purpose for God placing His Holy Spirit within us is to Renovate both our Heart... and our Mind Pertaining to the heart: Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? Pertaining to the mind: Romans 8:7 says, “For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 3:10 “None is righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fallen short... of the glory of God!” 1 Peter 1:15-16 says, “but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Corinthians 6:11 “But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” Ezekiel 36:26 “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” No matter Who you are, Where you are, or What you are, God cares about you and he LOVES you! God has not given up on you! He is just waiting for your invitation to come and live in your heart!
