When our church meets this Friday evening, at 6:30 P.M., we will consider the holiness that God has placed on the seventh day of creation, which is the Sabbath (Genesis 2:1-3). No other day of the week is the seventh day, and no other day of the week is the Sabbath. As we have concluded in our studies, our worship of God is to be “in spirit and in truth,” (John 4:24). It is not dependent on “day, place, or time.” Worship that is true can be said to be “all of us for all of Him.” At the end of our service, we will participate in the teaching of Matthew 26:17-30. There, Jesus and His disciples are taking part in the Passover seder. During that meal, Jesus initiates the Lord’s Supper while having the meal. We will share in the breaking of bread also, as we share in a meal, and as we remember Our Lord’s death on the cross, and celebrate His resurrection. The breaking of bread, as a meal, was a common practice of the early church, as it was written in Acts 2:42-47; Acts 20:7, and 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.

Before one can correctly understand the work of the Holy Spirit, he must first of all know the Spirit Himself. That is the goal of this week’s teaching. Consider the song that follows. Its words reflect directly on the relationship that we, who are believers in Christ, have with God’s Holy Spirit.

The Presence Of The Trinity. Matthew 3:16-17. 16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Hebrews 13:8. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

1 Corinthians 2:9-11. 9 But as it is written:“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 12:11. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

Romans 8:27. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 15:30. Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers to God for me,

Ephesians 4:30. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10. 9 But as it is written:“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

Revelation 2:7. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’

Galatians 4:6. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”

Romans 8:16. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

Romans 8:26. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we
should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings
which cannot be uttered.

Hebrews 7:25. Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

John 15:26. “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

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 things that I said to you.

John 16:12-14. 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.

Romans 8:14. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Acts 16:6-7. 6 Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. 7 After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them.

Acts 13:2. As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”

Acts 20:28. Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. (See Ephesians 4:11-12)

John 14:16-17. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

John 16:7. 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 depart, I will send Him to you.

Acts 1:4. And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me;

Ephesians 4:30. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

The following song was recorded in the early 1990s. Many of the singers have gone on to be with the Lord. May their legacy continue to bless believers in Christ for years to come.
