Some Christian denominations and movements have completely neglected the Holy Spirit while others have credited the Holy Spirit with manifestations that were not of God. Dallas Holm joins Gary Wilkerson to examine what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit. When do we receive the Holy Spirit? How do we know if we’ve received the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is the person of the Godhead who gets most misrepresented and misunderstood.
The Holy Spirit is not some add-on you have to receive after you get saved. When you place faith in Jesus Christ you receive the Holy Spirit in full.
Every gift of the Spirit is still in operation today.
Jesus told the disciples that the Holy Spirit would give them power to be his witnesses, but we have made the Holy Spirit more about manifestations.
Scripture encourages us to continually be filled with the Holy Spirit, allowing him to flow through us daily.
The Holy Spirit helps, teaches, comforts, empowers and illuminates.
