Having studied the nature of God in general, the personality of the Holy Spirit in particular, and the role of the Spirit in the life of Jesus, this sermon explores the work of the Holy Spirit in two key areas of God’s relationship with mankind.
- Revelation — to uncover or unveil something (Eph 3:8-10; Rev 1:1-2).
- Inspiration — to breathe or blow into (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:16-21).
The gap between the infinite wisdom of God and the finite minds of men was bridged by the Holy Spirit, who makes known to us “the depths of God” (1 Cor 2:6-16). This sermon walks us through Biblical history–from the Patriarchal age, through the Mosaic Age, culminating in the early days of the church–in order to enhance our appreciation of what God has done to communicate his will to us.
It was delivered on September 23, 2012 as Part 4 in a series of sermons on the Holy Spirit.
