|The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ
|THE HOLY SPIRIT
|We believe the Holy Spirit of God is His working force and power in this world. He is the only one who can teach us, direct us,
convict us, guide and preserve us unto that which is Spiritual.
We believe that when you ask God for His Holy Spirit, you will receive Him. (LUKE 11:13) “IF YE THEN, BEING EVIL,
KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS UNTO YOUR CHILDREN: HOW MUCH MORE SHALL YOUR HEAVENLY
FATHER GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THEM THAT ASK HIM?” (I John 4:13; II Cor. 1:21-22; I John 3:24).
We believe that God gives the Holy Spirit to them that obey Him, (ACTS 5:32) “AND WE ARE HIS WITNESSES OF THESE
THINGS; AND SO IS ALSO THE HOLY GHOST, WHOM GOD HATH GIVEN TO THEM THAT OBEY HIM.” (I John 3:24).
We believe that the Holy Ghost is our only teacher and interpreter, (JOHN 14:26) “BUT THE COMFORTER, WHICH IS
THE HOLY GHOST, WHOM THE FATHER WILL SEND IN MY NAME, HE SHALL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, AND
BRING ALL THINGS TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE, WHATSOEVER I HAVE SAID UNTO YOU.” (John 16:13).
We believe our joy, peace, faith, and hope is made possible by the Holy Ghost, (ROMANS 15:13) “NOW THE GOD OF HOPE
FILL YOU WITH ALL JOY AND PEACE IN BELIEVING, THAT YE MAY ABOUND IN HOPE, THROUGH THE POWER
OF THE HOLY GHOST.”
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, was most instrumental in the writings of God’s Holy
scriptures, (II PETER 1:21) “FOR THE PROPHECY CAME NOT IN OLD TIME BY THE WILL OF MAN: BUT HOLY
MEN OF GOD SPAKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY GHOST."
We believe our body is the temple of God’s Holy Spirit, (I CORINTHIANS 3:16) “KNOW YE NOT THAT YE ARE THE
TEMPLE OF GOD, AND THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLETH IN YOU”? (I Cor. 6:19-20, John 14:16-17).
We believe the gift of speaking in tongues is given by the Holy Ghost, (ACTS 2:4) “AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH
THE HOLY GHOST, AND BEGAN TO SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE.”
(I Cor. 14:18-19, 21-22, 27-28; I Cor. 12:4,10-11).
We believe that God can take His Holy Spirit from us, (PSALM 51:11) “CAST ME NOT AWAY FROM THY PRESENCE;
AND TAKE NOT THY HOLY SPIRIT FROM ME.” (Rom. 8:9).
