The baptizing work of the Holy Spirit is defined in 1 Corinthians 12:13, and is unique to the Church and the dispensation of grace. It occurs only once for each believer.
When a person trusts Christ as Savior, the first ministry of the Holy Spirit is regeneration. This means the believer in Christ is born again by the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity. He has all the attributes of personality.
Beginning our studies of the Holy Spirit, we must be clear about basic truths. One of these is that the Holy Spirit is God, not a “force.”
Commonly called “the eternal state,” the New Heavens and Earth is a future work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed He declares “I am making all things new.” (Rev. 21:5)
Christ establishes His Kingdom at His return to the earth. Revelation 20 repeatedly says 1000 years.
Following the 7 year Tribulation, our Lord returns to the earth to crush His enemies and rescue Israel from the Antichrist. Revelation 19 reveals the event.
The Bema, or Judgment Seat of Christ, will take place in heaven following the Rapture of the Church. Then will come the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
The rapture of the Church is an “any moment” future ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4 gives us details.
In what way is Christ our Great High Priest interceding for us now? John 17 indicates the things for which our Lord is praying.
