Does the SPIRIT of GOD speak?


Romans 8:26

King James Version

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: 

for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: 

but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us 

with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Does the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD speak?

For sure!

When the LORD JESUS ascended back to heaven, He promised us a COMFORTER, who will "reprove" the world of sin.

To "reprove" means to reprimand, or to censure someone.

John 16:7-11

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.

The HOLY SPIRIT will not speak of Himself, according to JESUS.

John 16:13

King James Version

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.

When the HOLY SPIRIT descended upon JESUS, GOD spoke:

Luke 3:21-22

King James Version

21 Now when all the people were baptized, 

it came to pass, 

that Jesus also being baptized, 

and praying, 

the heaven was opened,

22 And the Holy Ghost descended 

in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, 

and a voice came from heaven, 

which said, 

Thou art my beloved Son; 

in thee I am well pleased.

The Bible has more such proof that the HOLY SPIRIT speaks.

Whether by Himself, or THROUGH us.

Marvel at these:

Joel 2:28-29

King James Version

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, 

that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; 

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy

your old men shall dream dreams, 

your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants 

and upon the handmaids in those days 

will I pour out my spirit.

Hebrews 3:6-8

King James Version

6 But Christ as a son over his own house; 

whose house are we, 

if we hold fast the confidence 

and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, 

To day if ye will hear his voice,

8 Harden not your hearts, 

as in the provocation, 

in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

1 Corinthians 14:21

King James Version

21 In the law it is written, 

With men of other tongues and other lips 

will I speak unto this people; 

and yet for all that will they not hear me, 

saith the Lord.

That Corinthians verse above came from this Isaiah proclamation.

Isaiah 28:9-12

King James Version

9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? 

and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? 

them that are weaned from the milk, 

and drawn from the breasts.

10 For precept must be upon precept, 

precept upon precept; 

line upon line, 

line upon line; 

here a little, 

and there a little:

11 For with stammering lips 

and another tongue will he speak to this people.

12 To whom he said, 

This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; 

and this is the refreshing: 

yet they would not hear.

Acts 2:1-4

King James Version

2 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, 

they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven 

as of a rushing mighty wind, 

and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, 

and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, 

and began to speak with other tongues, 

as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:38-39

King James Version

38 Then Peter said unto them, 


and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39 For the promise is unto you, 

and to your children, 

and to all that are afar off, 

even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Acts 10:44-46

King James Version

44 While Peter yet spake these words, 

the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, 

as many as came with Peter, 

because that on the Gentiles also 

was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

46 For they heard them speak with tongues, 

and magnify God

Then answered Peter,

Acts 13:2-4

King James Version

2 As they ministered to the Lord, 

and fasted, 

the Holy Ghost said, 

Separate me Barnabas and Saul 

for the work whereunto I have called them.

3 And when they had fasted and prayed, 

and laid their hands on them, 

they sent them away.

4 So they, 

being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, 

departed unto Seleucia; 

and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.

Acts 19:6

King James Version

6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, 

the Holy Ghost came on them; 

and they spake with tongues, 

and prophesied.

2 Peter 1:17-18

King James Version

17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, 

when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.

18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, 

when we were with him in the holy mount.

2 Peter 1:20-21

King James Version

20 Knowing this first, 

that no prophecy of the scripture 

is of any private interpretation.

21 For the prophecy came 

not in old time by the will of man: 

but holy men of God spake 

as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 12:3

King James Version

3 Wherefore I give you to understand, 

that no man 

speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: 

and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, 

but by the Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 14:1-6

King James Version

14 Follow after charity, 

and desire spiritual gifts, 

but rather that ye may prophesy.

2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue 

speaketh not unto men, 

but unto God: 

for no man understandeth him; 

howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

3 But he that prophesieth 

speaketh unto men to edification, 

and exhortation, 

and comfort.

4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; 

but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

5 I would that ye all spake with tongues 

but rather that ye prophesied: 

for greater is he that prophesieth 

than he that speaketh with tongues, 

except he interpret, 

that the church may receive edifying.

6 Now, brethren, 

if I come unto you speaking with tongues, 

what shall I profit you, 

except I shall speak to you either by revelation, 

or by knowledge, 

or by prophesying, 

or by doctrine?

1 Timothy 4:1

King James Version

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, 

that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, 

giving heed to seducing spirits, 

and doctrines of devils;
