The ETERNAL SPIRIT of GOD

 

Hebrews 9:14

King James Version

14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, 

who through the eternal Spirit 

offered himself without spot to God, 

purge your conscience from dead works 

to serve the living God?


The Bible holds many treasures.

Especially of the SPIRIT of GOD.

For the Bible was inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


The SPIRIT of GOD has always been there from the beginning, in creation, in giving us life, the day JESUS was born, when JESUS was baptized, when He went back to heaven, to be at the right hand of God, and when God finally takes away His Spirit, to reveal the wicked one.

Scripture has proof.


The BEGINNING.

Genesis 1:1-2

King James Version

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, 

and void; 

and darkness was upon the face of the deep. 

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.


The CREATION of man.

Job 33:4

King James Version

4 The spirit of God hath made me, 

and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.


The BIRTH of JESUS.

Matthew 1:18-25

King James Version

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: 

When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, 

before they came together, 

she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19 Then Joseph her husband, 

being a just man, 

and not willing to make her a public example, 

was minded to put her away privily.

20 But while he thought on these things, 

behold, 

the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, 

saying, 

Joseph, 

thou son of David, 

fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: 

for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, 

and thou shalt call his name Jesus: 

for he shall save his people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, 

that it might be fulfilled 

which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, 

saying,

23 Behold, 

a virgin shall be with child, 

and shall bring forth a son

and they shall call his name Emmanuel, 

which being interpreted is, 

God with us.

24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep 

did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, 

and took unto him his wife:

25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: 

and he called his name Jesus.


The BAPTISM of JESUS.

Matthew 3:16-17

King James Version

16 And Jesus, 

when he was baptized, 

went up straightway out of the water: 

and, lo, 

the heavens were opened unto him, 

and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, 

and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, 

saying, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.


The DEPARTURE of JESUS.

John 16:7-15

King James Version

7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; 

It is expedient for you that I go away: 

for if I go not away, 

the Comforter will not come unto you; 

but if I depart, 

I will send him unto you.

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:

9 Of sin, 

because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, 

because I go to my Father,

 and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, 

because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, 

but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, 

is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: 

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: 

therefore said I, 

that he shall take of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.


But on a day GOD appoints, He will take away His SPIRIT, to reveal the wicked one -- in fulfillment of prophecy.

2 Thessalonians 2:7-8

King James Version

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: 

only he who now letteth will let, 

until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, 

whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, 

and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:


That's why the world groans so.

Awaiting the LORD's return.

Romans 8:22-23

King James Version

22 For we know that the whole creation 

groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

23 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.


Only the presence of the HOLY SPIRIT holds everything back.

For now.

Giving us time to get right with God.

Pray that GOD's SPIRIT make you born again, and you will begin understanding Spirit's ways.

Let us heed the LORD's call now.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.
