The Fellowship of the Spirit Pt 2
1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”
10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
THE HOLY SPIRITS REALTION TO BELIEVERS?
GOD NEVER CONVICTS US BY TELLING US HOW BAD WE ARE BUT BY HOW GOOD HE IS.
HE DOES NOT SHOW US OUR SIN BUT HE SHOWS US HIS LOVE.
GOD SHOWS THE WORLD THEIR SIN. HE SHOWS THE CHURCH HIS LOVE
THE HOLY SPIRIT NEVER FOCUSES ON YOUR WEAKNESS HE MAGNIFIES GOD’S STRENGTH. Ex Peter…
2 Cor 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
FELLOWSHIP… KOINANIA… THIS WORD HAS 7 DIFF MEANINGS
3 THE FELLOWSHIP
4 SHARING ONE WITH ANOTHER
5 TO PARTICIPATE WITH – WORK WITH
COMMUNION: MEANS WALKING WITH HIM DAILY…
COMMUNION IS HIM, ENABLING YOU TO PRAY.
Luke 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus was also baptized, and while He was praying, heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended
Acts 1:14 These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer
Rom 8:15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” (Gal 4:6)
COMMUNION IS CONTINUED PRAYER
R.A. TORREY – WHERE THERE IS MUCH PRAYER THERE WILL BE MUCH OF THE SPIRIT AND WHERE THERE IS MUCH OF THE SPIRIT THERE WILL BE MUCH PRAYER
PRESENCE – MEANS; THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD.
THE PRESENCE OF GOD ISN’T SOMETHING YOU FEEL BUT IT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU LIVE IN.
FELLOWSHIP – MEANS; COUNSEL, SOMEONE WHO IS INSTRUCTING YOU, GUIDING YOU…
FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM CHANGES THE WAY YOU HEAR THINGS.
SHARING TOGETHER – GOD TEACHING YOU
WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT SHARES THINGS WITH YOU HE’S FEEDING YOUR SPIRIT MAN.
PARTICIPATION WITH – THAT IS HIM CONFIRMING WHAT YOU SAY.
AS WE SHARE OR PREACH THE WORD HE CONFIRMS THE WORD WITH SIGNS FOLLOWING.
INTIMACY – THIS CONTAINS THE IDEA OF WORSHIP…
YOU CAN’T HAVE INTIMACY WITHOUT WORSHIP.
FRIENDSHIP – HE WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR CLOSEST FRIEND AND COMPANION.
WE LEARN TO KNOW THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE SPIRIT BECAUSE OF HIS FELLOWSHIP AND PRESENCE ON OUR LIVES
KOINANIA WITH THE SPIRIT CHANGED THE WAY THEY SPOKE
THEY WERE FULL AND SPOKE WITH BOLDNESS (Acts 2,4)
Acts 5:32 And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
Acts 6:10 says, “But they were unable to cope with the wisdom and the Spirit with which he was speaking.”
IT WILL CHANGE YOUR POSITIONS.
IT TOOK HIM FROM AN TABLE WAITER TO AN EVANGELIST.
Acts 7:55 But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God
