Leading of The Spirit-Part 3

Posted By on Tuesday, February 16, 2016

There are three activities, concerning the Holy Spirit.  I may be able to finish only two, but then tomorrow night is another night.  The Spirit of God is a person.  I will use the Gospel of John 16:13 for a basis.
“Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself (that is to say, on His own authority, on His own initiative); but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak; and He will show you things to come.”  John 16:13
Notice the activity of the Spirit.  He will “guide;” He shall “hear;” He shall “speak;” He will “show” you.  We have the personal activity of the Spirit of God doing the will of the Father in the hearts and lives of His people.  You know, when I was a student in Bible school, I took to liking a girl, and she took to liking me.  So a friendship developed, only a friendship though, still it kind of got stronger and stronger.  And the Lord dealt with me.  He negated it.  No, He did not want that, but I wanted it.  I was all-alone and was glad to have somebody to chum with a little bit.  Yet the Lord kept dealing with me not to continue this friendship.  Well, I would not listen.

One day, she and I went to an evangelistic campaign.  Smith Wigglesworth from England was the evangelist.  Do some of you remember him? He was quite a character.  If you came to him and complained about a stomach pain, he would take his fist and hit you in the stomach.  That was one way to get rid of one pain, but you got another one.  But he got results.
