  • in the day, healed the sick,
  • 00:00:01.994 --> 00:00:03.896
  • cast demons out of people,raised the dead,
  • 00:00:03.996 --> 00:00:07.032
  • and turned the worldupside down.
  • 00:00:07.132 --> 00:00:08.901
  • That's what wassaid about Him.
  • 00:00:09.001 --> 00:00:10.169
  • These who have turned the worldupside down
  • 00:00:10.269 --> 00:00:12.738
  • have come to our city too now.
  • 00:00:12.838 --> 00:00:14.706

  • 00:00:14.807 --> 00:00:29.455
  • PASTOR ROBERT: I'm talking aboutthe Holy Spirit, and I want you
  • 00:00:29.555 --> 00:00:31.156
  • to know a little bitabout who He is.
  • 00:00:31.256 --> 00:00:34.259
  • Now, we're going to readin John 14, 15, and 16.
  • 00:00:34.359 --> 00:00:38.864
  • This is a conversationthat takes place,
  • 00:00:38.964 --> 00:00:41.266
  • most theologians believe,in the last 12 hours,
  • 00:00:41.366 --> 00:00:43.836
  • some would say 15, 14 to 15,of Jesus' life.
  • 00:00:43.936 --> 00:00:48.073
  • Chapter 14, He's in theroom, the upper room,
  • 00:00:48.173 --> 00:00:53.812
  • we would say, even though it'snot the one at Pentecost --
  • 00:00:53.912 --> 00:00:56.248
  • an upper room in a home, atthe Last Supper, talking
  • 00:00:56.348 --> 00:00:59.618
  • to His disciples.
  • 00:00:59.718 --> 00:01:01.587
  • At the end of 14, in Verse31, He says, "Arise, let us go
  • 00:01:01.687 --> 00:01:06.158
  • from here", so they start goingto the Mount of Olives.
  • 00:01:06.258 --> 00:01:09.628
  • Most people believe -- again,most theologians believe
  • 00:01:09.728 --> 00:01:11.897
  • that Chapter 15, He startsit when He enters the garden,
  • 00:01:11.997 --> 00:01:15.534
  • because He stopsmaybe beside an olive tree.
  • 00:01:15.634 --> 00:01:17.903
  • He starts with "I am thevine, you're the branches".
  • 00:01:18.003 --> 00:01:20.239
  • You've read that in John 15.
  • 00:01:20.339 --> 00:01:21.807
  • So, John 14, 15, and 16 arethe last things that He says
  • 00:01:21.907 --> 00:01:26.111
  • to His disciples beforeHe's crucified, and the main
  • 00:01:26.211 --> 00:01:29.815
  • context of what He says is,I'm going away, don't be
  • 00:01:29.915 --> 00:01:34.987
  • troubled though, because I'mgoing to send someone else.
  • 00:01:35.087 --> 00:01:39.424
  • And He's introducingthem to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:01:39.525 --> 00:01:43.529
  • So, John 14, lookat Verses 16 and 17.
  • 00:01:43.629 --> 00:01:47.599
  • He says, "And I willpray the Father".
  • 00:01:47.699 --> 00:01:50.502
  • Now, that might not jump outat you, but it jumps out
  • 00:01:50.602 --> 00:01:52.738
  • at me because I would think itwould say,
  • 00:01:52.838 --> 00:01:54.673
  • and I will pray to the Father.
  • 00:01:54.773 --> 00:01:57.342
  • But, just to give you alittle background of this word,
  • 00:01:57.442 --> 00:01:59.178
  • this is not thenormal Greek word for pray.
  • 00:01:59.278 --> 00:02:01.613
  • This is a word thatsimply means ask.
  • 00:02:01.713 --> 00:02:03.582
  • Most of the time, it'stranslated ask, so when you read
  • 00:02:03.682 --> 00:02:07.085
  • it that way,it makes more sense.
  • 00:02:07.186 --> 00:02:08.754
  • He says, "And I will ask theFather, and He will give
  • 00:02:08.854 --> 00:02:12.925
  • you another Helper".
  • 00:02:13.025 --> 00:02:15.527
  • Notice the word Helper.
  • 00:02:15.627 --> 00:02:16.562
  • We'll see it four times.
  • 00:02:16.662 --> 00:02:18.030
  • "That He may abidewith you forever.
  • 00:02:18.130 --> 00:02:21.333
  • The Spirit of truth, whomthe world cannot receive
  • 00:02:21.433 --> 00:02:25.470
  • because it neither seesHim nor knows Him",
  • 00:02:25.571 --> 00:02:29.208
  • I'm underlining these words Heand Him for a reason
  • 00:02:29.308 --> 00:02:32.311
  • I'll tell you in a moment.
  • 00:02:32.411 --> 00:02:33.612
  • "But, you know Him, for Hedwells with you
  • 00:02:33.712 --> 00:02:36.615
  • and will be in you."
  • 00:02:36.715 --> 00:02:38.283
  • Now, here's the reason Iunderlined the words He and Him.
  • 00:02:38.383 --> 00:02:41.887
  • The Bible never, ever refersto the Holy Spirit as it.
  • 00:02:41.987 --> 00:02:48.393
  • Never, becauseHe is not an it.
  • 00:02:48.493 --> 00:02:53.265
  • He is a person, and if youdon't see Him as a person,
  • 00:02:53.365 --> 00:02:58.971
  • then you won't develop apersonal relationship with Him.
  • 00:02:59.071 --> 00:03:05.877
  • You develop personalrelationships with people,
  • 00:03:05.978 --> 00:03:08.880
  • with persons, and so it's veryimportant to understand,
  • 00:03:08.981 --> 00:03:11.450
  • He is the thirdperson of the trinity.
  • 00:03:11.550 --> 00:03:15.587
  • All right, now look down atVerses 25 and 26 of John 14.
  • 00:03:15.687 --> 00:03:19.424
  • "These things I have spokento you
  • 00:03:19.524 --> 00:03:22.327
  • while being present with you.
  • 00:03:22.427 --> 00:03:26.198
  • But the Helper", second time Heuses that word,
  • 00:03:26.298 --> 00:03:28.567
  • "the Holy Spirit, whom theFather will send in my name,
  • 00:03:28.667 --> 00:03:31.837
  • He will teach you all things."
  • 00:03:31.937 --> 00:03:36.775
  • That's incredible!
  • 00:03:36.875 --> 00:03:38.143
  • "And bring to your remembranceall things that I said to you."
  • 00:03:38.243 --> 00:03:42.314
  • Then lookat Chapter 15, Verse 26.
  • 00:03:42.414 --> 00:03:44.950
  • "But when the Helper", thirdtime we've seen that word,
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:47.819
  • "comes, whom I shall sendto you from the Father,
  • 00:03:47.919 --> 00:03:51.189
  • the Spirit of truth who proceedsfrom the Father,
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:55.594
  • He will testify of Me."
  • 00:03:55.694 --> 00:03:58.797
  • And then look atChapter 16, John 16:7.
  • 00:03:58.897 --> 00:04:02.200
  • "Nevertheless Itell you the truth."
  • 00:04:02.301 --> 00:04:04.736
  • In other words, it's goingto be hard for you to believe
  • 00:04:04.836 --> 00:04:06.438
  • what I'm about to tell you.
  • 00:04:06.538 --> 00:04:07.906
  • "It is to your advantagethat I go away, for if I do not
  • 00:04:08.006 --> 00:04:12.811
  • go away, the Helper",fourth time we've seen the word,
  • 00:04:12.911 --> 00:04:15.781
  • "will not come to you,but if I depart,
  • 00:04:15.881 --> 00:04:18.016
  • I will send Him to you."
  • 00:04:18.116 --> 00:04:20.786
  • Now, we're going to readVerses 8 through 11 in a moment,
  • 00:04:20.886 --> 00:04:23.755
  • later in themessage, but look down
  • 00:04:23.855 --> 00:04:25.290
  • at Verse 12 now, of Chapter 16.
  • 00:04:25.390 --> 00:04:27.826
  • "I still have manythings to say to you."
  • 00:04:27.926 --> 00:04:31.763
  • Now, I want you to thinkabout what you're reading
  • 00:04:31.863 --> 00:04:33.598
  • in the Bible right now.
  • 00:04:33.699 --> 00:04:35.467
  • Jesus said, "I still havemany things to say to you",
  • 00:04:35.567 --> 00:04:38.937
  • watch, "but youcannot bear them now.
  • 00:04:39.037 --> 00:04:42.474
  • However, when He, the Spiritof truth, has come, He will
  • 00:04:42.574 --> 00:04:48.313
  • guide you into all truth, for Hewill not speak on His own
  • 00:04:48.413 --> 00:04:52.584
  • authority, but whatever Hehears, He will speak."
  • 00:04:52.684 --> 00:04:58.590
  • Now, that settles allargument about whether
  • 00:04:58.690 --> 00:05:00.926
  • the Holy Spirit speaks, becauseJesus said He will speak.
  • 00:05:01.026 --> 00:05:07.766
  • "And He will tellyou things to come."
  • 00:05:07.866 --> 00:05:12.838
  • So, He's goingto talk to us.
  • 00:05:12.938 --> 00:05:14.373
  • Okay.
  • 00:05:14.473 --> 00:05:15.407
  • This word, Helper, that wesaw four times,
  • 00:05:15.507 --> 00:05:18.443
  • it's only in the Bible five.
  • 00:05:18.543 --> 00:05:19.644
  • We just read four of them.
  • 00:05:19.745 --> 00:05:21.546
  • It comes from a Greekword, parakletos.
  • 00:05:21.646 --> 00:05:25.250
  • I'm saying it to emphasizeboth parts of the word
  • 00:05:25.350 --> 00:05:28.887
  • that makes up theword, all right?
  • 00:05:28.987 --> 00:05:30.389
  • Parakletos.
  • 00:05:30.489 --> 00:05:33.291
  • You've heard peoplesay paraclete.
  • 00:05:33.392 --> 00:05:35.227
  • That's an Englishpronunciation of it,
  • 00:05:35.327 --> 00:05:37.629
  • but parakletos isthe Greek word.
  • 00:05:37.729 --> 00:05:40.132
  • Para means alongside, kletosmeans to come --
  • 00:05:40.232 --> 00:05:45.103
  • to come alongside.
  • 00:05:45.203 --> 00:05:46.905
  • In other words, Jesussaid I'm going to send you
  • 00:05:47.005 --> 00:05:49.174
  • someone who's going to comealongside you,
  • 00:05:49.274 --> 00:05:52.244
  • and He's going to help you.
  • 00:05:52.344 --> 00:05:53.512
  • So, this word can betranslated helper.
  • 00:05:53.612 --> 00:05:56.448
  • It can be translatedconsoler, intercessor.
  • 00:05:56.548 --> 00:05:59.117
  • I'm going to sendyou another consoler.
  • 00:05:59.217 --> 00:06:00.852
  • I'm going to send youanother intercessor.
  • 00:06:00.952 --> 00:06:02.687
  • I'm going to sendyou another advocate.
  • 00:06:02.788 --> 00:06:04.456
  • It's translated in 1John as advocate, okay?
  • 00:06:04.556 --> 00:06:07.526
  • But, the Old King James, whichmany of us grew up on that,
  • 00:06:07.626 --> 00:06:10.729
  • translates it as something thatyou might remember.
  • 00:06:10.829 --> 00:06:13.432
  • It translates thisword as comforter.
  • 00:06:13.532 --> 00:06:18.270
  • I'm going to sendyou a comforter.
  • 00:06:18.370 --> 00:06:21.106
  • Now, I remember when Ithought about that, all of us
  • 00:06:21.206 --> 00:06:25.844
  • probably have something in ourhomes that's called a comforter.
  • 00:06:25.944 --> 00:06:31.383
  • Right?
  • 00:06:31.483 --> 00:06:32.717
  • When Debbie and I first gotmarried, we lived in a trailer,
  • 00:06:32.818 --> 00:06:35.287
  • and all of ourbedding, our dishes,
  • 00:06:35.387 --> 00:06:38.156
  • they were all handed down.
  • 00:06:38.256 --> 00:06:39.791
  • So we had, really,a bedspread.
  • 00:06:39.891 --> 00:06:42.227
  • We didn't have a comforter,we had a bedspread.
  • 00:06:42.327 --> 00:06:44.496
  • We went over someone's house,they were showing us around.
  • 00:06:44.596 --> 00:06:47.332
  • They had this thickcomforter, and Debbie said
  • 00:06:47.432 --> 00:06:51.269
  • to me that night, she said,"You know, I really want to buy
  • 00:06:51.369 --> 00:06:53.205
  • a comforter", and Isaid, "Hey, that's great!"
  • 00:06:53.305 --> 00:06:55.173
  • I thought that thingwas beautiful, you know?
  • 00:06:55.273 --> 00:06:57.442
  • So, she bought a comforter.
  • 00:06:57.542 --> 00:06:59.144
  • I went to work.
  • 00:06:59.244 --> 00:07:00.045
  • I was working for myfather's company
  • 00:07:00.145 --> 00:07:01.913
  • in the land surveying division.
  • 00:07:02.013 --> 00:07:03.949
  • I was a surveyor.
  • 00:07:04.049 --> 00:07:05.217
  • I wasn't evensaved at the time.
  • 00:07:05.317 --> 00:07:07.352
  • We'd been marrieda few months.
  • 00:07:07.452 --> 00:07:09.221
  • And so, I camehome that night.
  • 00:07:09.321 --> 00:07:11.056
  • She said, "Come seethe new comforter".
  • 00:07:11.156 --> 00:07:12.891
  • Went in, saw thenew comforter.
  • 00:07:12.991 --> 00:07:14.726
  • Wow, it's great!
  • 00:07:14.826 --> 00:07:16.595
  • Then we ate some dinner,watched some TV,
  • 00:07:16.695 --> 00:07:18.830
  • then we go in to go to bed.
  • 00:07:18.930 --> 00:07:21.066
  • And when I walked in, you're notgoing to believe what happened.
  • 00:07:21.166 --> 00:07:24.369
  • Someone had stolenour new comforter!
  • 00:07:24.469 --> 00:07:29.941
  • And, put the oldbedspread back on the bed.
  • 00:07:30.041 --> 00:07:34.880
  • Where's our new comforter?
  • 00:07:34.980 --> 00:07:37.015
  • And Debbie wentlike this to me.
  • 00:07:37.115 --> 00:07:38.683
  • And I don't know why youwomen do this,
  • 00:07:38.783 --> 00:07:40.252
  • but she goes, "Pfft"!
  • 00:07:40.352 --> 00:07:45.824
  • She said, "Robert, thatcomforter is not for use,
  • 00:07:45.924 --> 00:07:55.233
  • it's for looks!"
  • 00:07:55.333 --> 00:07:58.570
  • I have since discovered wehave many things in our home
  • 00:07:58.670 --> 00:08:04.442
  • that are not for use,they're for looks.
  • 00:08:04.543 --> 00:08:09.214
  • We have towels that youcan use that I can't use.
  • 00:08:09.314 --> 00:08:18.623
  • Those are the guest towels.
  • 00:08:18.723 --> 00:08:21.893
  • Don't touch theguest towels, Robert.
  • 00:08:21.993 --> 00:08:25.497
  • But, go back now to heroriginal statement
  • 00:08:25.597 --> 00:08:27.933
  • about the comforter when wewere first married.
  • 00:08:28.033 --> 00:08:29.768
  • Here's what she said.
  • 00:08:29.868 --> 00:08:31.102
  • "That comforter is notfor use, it's for looks."
  • 00:08:31.202 --> 00:08:39.444
  • How many believers have acomforter that's not for use,
  • 00:08:39.544 --> 00:08:49.955
  • but just for looks?
  • 00:08:50.055 --> 00:08:53.959
  • Hear me.
  • 00:08:54.059 --> 00:08:55.060
  • The Holy Spiritis not for looks.
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:59.331
  • He's for use.
  • 00:08:59.431 --> 00:09:01.333
  • He wants to empower us, andto enable us, to live this life.
  • 00:09:01.433 --> 00:09:07.339
  • So, let me tell you threethings about who He is, alright?
  • 00:09:07.439 --> 00:09:11.343
  • Here's number one,He's my Helper.
  • 00:09:11.443 --> 00:09:13.912
  • He helps me.
  • 00:09:14.012 --> 00:09:15.280
  • He helps me toknow what to say.
  • 00:09:15.380 --> 00:09:17.482
  • Sometimes someonewill ask you to pray.
  • 00:09:17.582 --> 00:09:19.217
  • You've had this happen.
  • 00:09:19.317 --> 00:09:20.418
  • And you will pray, and aScripture will come
  • 00:09:20.518 --> 00:09:22.654
  • to your mind, and you'll praythat Scripture, and at the end,
  • 00:09:22.754 --> 00:09:25.824
  • they'll say to you, I can'tbelieve you said that Scripture.
  • 00:09:25.924 --> 00:09:29.894
  • I read that Scripturethis morning.
  • 00:09:29.995 --> 00:09:33.231
  • I can't believe you said it.
  • 00:09:33.331 --> 00:09:34.332
  • And of course, I say,well, I'm a great person!
  • 00:09:34.432 --> 00:09:39.337
  • No, I say, well, itwas the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:39.437 --> 00:09:43.241
  • How else could I say the sameScripture that you just read?
  • 00:09:43.341 --> 00:09:48.079
  • How could I say thatwithout the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:09:48.179 --> 00:09:51.650
  • So, He helps me to knowwhat to say sometimes.
  • 00:09:51.750 --> 00:09:53.885
  • He helps me know whatnot to say sometimes.
  • 00:09:53.985 --> 00:09:57.722
  • You come home, and yourspouse has had a long day,
  • 00:09:57.822 --> 00:10:00.725
  • and you start to saysomething, and the Holy Spirit
  • 00:10:00.825 --> 00:10:03.628
  • says, "I wouldn'tgo there if I were you".
  • 00:10:03.728 --> 00:10:07.532
  • So, He helps us.
  • 00:10:07.632 --> 00:10:08.533
  • But, I want to showyou, John 16,
  • 00:10:08.633 --> 00:10:10.135
  • three ways specificallythat He helps us.
  • 00:10:10.235 --> 00:10:13.304
  • And again, I want to usethis as an analogy of how
  • 00:10:13.405 --> 00:10:16.641
  • we have misunderstood the HolySpirit and how He's gotten
  • 00:10:16.741 --> 00:10:20.378
  • a bad rap in the church.
  • 00:10:20.478 --> 00:10:23.181
  • So, John 16,look at Verse 8.
  • 00:10:23.281 --> 00:10:27.352
  • "And when He has come, Hewill convict the world of sin,
  • 00:10:27.452 --> 00:10:33.792
  • and of righteousness,and of judgment."
  • 00:10:33.892 --> 00:10:37.495
  • So, He's going to convict thewhole world of three things --
  • 00:10:37.595 --> 00:10:40.632
  • sin, righteousness,and judgment.
  • 00:10:40.732 --> 00:10:43.835
  • Now, again we've seen thesenegatively,
  • 00:10:43.935 --> 00:10:46.204
  • but they're not negatively.
  • 00:10:46.304 --> 00:10:47.605
  • The next three versesexplain each one, and it has
  • 00:10:47.706 --> 00:10:50.241
  • the word because, and becausehelps us to understand.
  • 00:10:50.341 --> 00:10:53.778
  • So, look at Verse 9.
  • 00:10:53.878 --> 00:10:55.413
  • "Of sin, because theydo not believe in Me."
  • 00:10:55.513 --> 00:11:00.018
  • Okay, let me tell you whyGod convicts you,
  • 00:11:00.118 --> 00:11:01.820
  • why the Holy Spirit convictsyou, of sin.
  • 00:11:01.920 --> 00:11:04.255
  • Because if you don'tunderstand and believe
  • 00:11:04.355 --> 00:11:07.692
  • that you're a sinner, you'llnever believe you need a Savior.
  • 00:11:07.792 --> 00:11:11.963
  • See, you can't get saved untilyou know you need a Savior.
  • 00:11:12.063 --> 00:11:15.066
  • So, the Holy Spiritconvicts us of sin.
  • 00:11:15.166 --> 00:11:19.037
  • I got saved in a motel room.
  • 00:11:19.137 --> 00:11:20.538
  • Most of you have heard that.
  • 00:11:20.638 --> 00:11:21.706
  • I got saved in Jake's Motel.
  • 00:11:21.806 --> 00:11:23.374
  • I was not in churchwhen I got saved.
  • 00:11:23.475 --> 00:11:26.111
  • I'm sorry, by the way.
  • 00:11:26.211 --> 00:11:27.445
  • And you don't have to bein church to be saved.
  • 00:11:27.545 --> 00:11:30.315
  • You know that, don't you?
  • 00:11:30.415 --> 00:11:31.416
  • You know, you don't haveto die in a funeral home.
  • 00:11:31.516 --> 00:11:33.184
  • It's convenient, but itprobably won't happen.
  • 00:11:33.284 --> 00:11:38.757
  • But, I wasn't in churchwhen I got saved.
  • 00:11:38.857 --> 00:11:40.492
  • I was in a motel room.
  • 00:11:40.592 --> 00:11:41.860
  • Let me tell you what I remembermost about that motel room --
  • 00:11:41.960 --> 00:11:44.429
  • the conviction.
  • 00:11:44.529 --> 00:11:46.364
  • If you've been saved, youknow what I'm talking about.
  • 00:11:46.464 --> 00:11:50.668
  • You felt so convicted!
  • 00:11:50.769 --> 00:11:53.872
  • That's the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:11:53.972 --> 00:11:54.939
  • As a matter of fact, 1Corinthians 12:3 says,
  • 00:11:55.039 --> 00:11:56.941
  • "No one can say that Jesus isLord except by the Holy Spirit".
  • 00:11:57.041 --> 00:12:02.614
  • It's the Holy Spirit'sjob to lead us to Jesus.
  • 00:12:02.714 --> 00:12:05.884
  • So, that's why, see,this is not negative.
  • 00:12:05.984 --> 00:12:07.652
  • He's going to convict theworld of sin, because they don't
  • 00:12:07.752 --> 00:12:09.954
  • believe in Jesus, sothat we'll believe in Jesus.
  • 00:12:10.054 --> 00:12:12.791
  • All right, here's the nextthing He does, Verse 10.
  • 00:12:12.891 --> 00:12:15.059
  • "Of righteousness, because Igo to my Father
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:18.530
  • and will see you no more", andnot talk to you anymore.
  • 00:12:18.630 --> 00:12:21.065
  • I'm going to my Father.
  • 00:12:21.166 --> 00:12:22.200
  • Okay, so you're notgoing to see me.
  • 00:12:22.300 --> 00:12:24.102
  • You know why?
  • 00:12:24.202 --> 00:12:25.336
  • Because I'm going to be at theright hand of the Father.
  • 00:12:25.436 --> 00:12:27.405
  • I'm going to be makingintercession for you.
  • 00:12:27.505 --> 00:12:29.240
  • I'm going to be bringingthe two together.
  • 00:12:29.340 --> 00:12:31.209
  • You can't have a relationshipwith a holy God
  • 00:12:31.309 --> 00:12:33.011
  • because you're sinful.
  • 00:12:33.111 --> 00:12:34.212
  • I'm going to takecare of your sin.
  • 00:12:34.312 --> 00:12:35.613
  • From now on, you and theFather can talk
  • 00:12:35.713 --> 00:12:38.583
  • and have a relationship.
  • 00:12:38.683 --> 00:12:39.751
  • So, I'll be with the Father.
  • 00:12:39.851 --> 00:12:41.052
  • Righteousness -- He said I'mgoing to convict
  • 00:12:41.152 --> 00:12:42.720
  • them of righteousness, notrighteous living.
  • 00:12:42.821 --> 00:12:45.456
  • Now, the Holy Spirit doesconvict us of righteous living.
  • 00:12:45.557 --> 00:12:47.826
  • I believe we should liverighteously, but that's not
  • 00:12:47.926 --> 00:12:49.928
  • what this is talking about.
  • 00:12:50.028 --> 00:12:51.196
  • Righteousness.
  • 00:12:51.296 --> 00:12:52.430
  • Righteousness meansright standing with God.
  • 00:12:52.530 --> 00:12:55.700
  • Now, and let me give youanother word, by the way,
  • 00:12:55.800 --> 00:12:58.369
  • for convict, that maybe youcan remember, convince.
  • 00:12:58.469 --> 00:13:02.841
  • When you're convicted,you're convinced.
  • 00:13:02.941 --> 00:13:05.410
  • If you have a conviction,you're convinced in that area,
  • 00:13:05.510 --> 00:13:07.779
  • that you shouldlive a certain way, okay.
  • 00:13:07.879 --> 00:13:09.314
  • He wants to convince youthat because you have believed
  • 00:13:09.414 --> 00:13:13.017
  • in Jesus, you arenow in right standing with God.
  • 00:13:13.117 --> 00:13:15.954
  • Think about that.
  • 00:13:16.054 --> 00:13:17.455
  • That's a pretty goodconviction to have.
  • 00:13:17.555 --> 00:13:19.424
  • So, He convicts us of sinso that we'll believe.
  • 00:13:19.524 --> 00:13:22.327
  • Once we believe,He convicts us.
  • 00:13:22.427 --> 00:13:23.795
  • Now we're in rightstanding with God.
  • 00:13:23.895 --> 00:13:25.530
  • And then, look at Verse 11.
  • 00:13:25.630 --> 00:13:27.098
  • "Of judgment, because theruler of this world is judged."
  • 00:13:27.198 --> 00:13:32.871
  • The ruler of this world isjudged, and at this point,
  • 00:13:32.971 --> 00:13:35.573
  • the ruler of the worldwas Satan, at that point.
  • 00:13:35.673 --> 00:13:39.177
  • And let me show youwhy we know that.
  • 00:13:39.277 --> 00:13:41.079
  • John 12:31, "Now is thejudgment of this world.
  • 00:13:41.179 --> 00:13:45.116
  • Now the ruler of thisworld will be cast out."
  • 00:13:45.216 --> 00:13:49.787
  • And then, John 14:30, "Iwill no longer talk much
  • 00:13:49.888 --> 00:13:52.857
  • with you, for the ruler ofthis world is coming
  • 00:13:52.957 --> 00:13:55.593
  • and he has nothing in me".
  • 00:13:55.693 --> 00:14:00.298
  • So, He's talkingabout Satan.
  • 00:14:00.398 --> 00:14:01.666
  • He's telling them, listen,Satan is about to be dethroned.
  • 00:14:01.766 --> 00:14:05.470
  • I'm going to takeaway his authority.
  • 00:14:05.570 --> 00:14:07.839
  • I'm going to strip him, andmake a public show of him,
  • 00:14:07.939 --> 00:14:12.477
  • and take away all of theauthority he has, and I'm
  • 00:14:12.577 --> 00:14:14.779
  • going to take dominion back.
  • 00:14:14.879 --> 00:14:16.114
  • So, let me tell you howwe've misunderstood
  • 00:14:16.214 --> 00:14:19.517
  • what the Holy Spirit does.
  • 00:14:19.617 --> 00:14:20.785
  • This is the way many peoplehave understood this.
  • 00:14:20.885 --> 00:14:23.321
  • You know the Holy Spiritcomes to convict you of sin,
  • 00:14:23.421 --> 00:14:26.491
  • righteousness, and judgment.
  • 00:14:26.591 --> 00:14:27.992
  • This is the waywe've understood it.
  • 00:14:28.092 --> 00:14:29.260
  • He's coming to convict youthat you're a sinner,
  • 00:14:29.360 --> 00:14:32.630
  • that you're not living right,and God's going to get you.
  • 00:14:32.730 --> 00:14:37.101
  • You're a sinner, you'renot living right,
  • 00:14:37.201 --> 00:14:38.569
  • and God's going to get you.
  • 00:14:38.670 --> 00:14:39.704
  • No, that's not it.
  • 00:14:39.804 --> 00:14:41.005
  • He's coming to convict youof your need for a Savior,
  • 00:14:41.105 --> 00:14:44.542
  • and once you accept thatSavior, He convicts you
  • 00:14:44.642 --> 00:14:47.478
  • that you are now in rightstanding with God,
  • 00:14:47.578 --> 00:14:50.481
  • and now that you're in rightstanding with God,
  • 00:14:50.581 --> 00:14:52.650
  • He also convicts you that Satanhas had all of his authority
  • 00:14:52.750 --> 00:14:55.954
  • taken away and has nomore authority over you.
  • 00:14:56.054 --> 00:14:58.957
  • That's what He wantsto convict you about.
  • 00:14:59.057 --> 00:15:02.327
  • That's what He wantsto convict you about.
  • 00:15:02.427 --> 00:15:05.330
  • So, He's my Helper.
  • 00:15:05.430 --> 00:15:10.868
  • He helps me.
  • 00:15:10.969 --> 00:15:11.803
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:15:11.903 --> 00:15:13.304
  • He's my friend,and He's not weird.
  • 00:15:13.404 --> 00:15:18.743
  • He's not weird!
  • 00:15:18.843 --> 00:15:20.445
  • I know this, becauseHe's my friend.
  • 00:15:20.545 --> 00:15:22.547
  • Now, here's the problem.
  • 00:15:22.647 --> 00:15:24.382
  • We've seen people who talkabout the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:15:24.482 --> 00:15:28.886
  • and they're weird.
  • 00:15:28.987 --> 00:15:31.022
  • Right?
  • 00:15:31.122 --> 00:15:32.323
  • Can I tell you something?
  • 00:15:32.423 --> 00:15:33.624
  • They would be weirdwithout the Holy Spirit!
  • 00:15:33.725 --> 00:15:37.595
  • They are just weird people.
  • 00:15:37.695 --> 00:15:40.665
  • You know, there's a pollout that shows
  • 00:15:40.765 --> 00:15:42.867
  • one in three people are weird.
  • 00:15:42.967 --> 00:15:46.437
  • No, it's true!
  • 00:15:46.537 --> 00:15:47.372
  • One in three are weird.
  • 00:15:47.472 --> 00:15:48.172
  • Okay, I want youto do something.
  • 00:15:48.272 --> 00:15:49.507
  • Look to the personon your left.
  • 00:15:49.607 --> 00:15:51.709
  • Just look to theperson on your left.
  • 00:15:51.809 --> 00:15:53.511
  • Now look to theperson on your right.
  • 00:15:53.611 --> 00:15:55.346
  • Okay.
  • 00:15:55.446 --> 00:15:56.547
  • Now, if neither one of themlook weird, I'm sorry,
  • 00:15:56.647 --> 00:16:02.687
  • that's actually not true.
  • 00:16:02.787 --> 00:16:04.188
  • It's not one in three,it's one in two.
  • 00:16:04.288 --> 00:16:08.526
  • All right, here's the point.
  • 00:16:08.626 --> 00:16:10.161
  • Okay.
  • 00:16:10.261 --> 00:16:11.462
  • Many, many people see weirdpeople, and they think
  • 00:16:11.562 --> 00:16:17.035
  • the Holy Spirit must be weird.
  • 00:16:17.135 --> 00:16:20.071
  • If you don't hear anythingelse today in this message,
  • 00:16:20.171 --> 00:16:22.073
  • hear this.
  • 00:16:22.173 --> 00:16:23.241
  • You can be a normal personand believe
  • 00:16:23.341 --> 00:16:25.676
  • in the person and the power ofthe Holy Spirit.
  • 00:16:25.777 --> 00:16:29.447
  • You don't have to be weird.
  • 00:16:29.547 --> 00:16:30.915
  • You don't have to be goofy.
  • 00:16:31.015 --> 00:16:32.884
  • And again, I'm not tryingto make fun of a conviction
  • 00:16:32.984 --> 00:16:36.087
  • that a group of people have.
  • 00:16:36.187 --> 00:16:37.355
  • I'm just trying to say,Satan twists it and he says
  • 00:16:37.455 --> 00:16:40.391
  • to the rest of us, ah, ifyou believe in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:16:40.491 --> 00:16:46.931
  • Please hear me.
  • 00:16:47.031 --> 00:16:48.599
  • You can be normal andbelieve in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:16:48.699 --> 00:16:51.602
  • Who do you think made usafraid of the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:16:51.702 --> 00:16:59.510
  • Satan.
  • 00:16:59.610 --> 00:17:01.245
  • I mean, because when thefirst church received
  • 00:17:01.345 --> 00:17:03.081
  • the Holy Spirit, they hadthousands saved in the day,
  • 00:17:03.181 --> 00:17:08.019
  • healed the sick, cast demonsout of people, raised
  • 00:17:08.119 --> 00:17:10.755
  • the dead, and turned theworld upside down.
  • 00:17:10.855 --> 00:17:15.093
  • That's what wassaid about Him.
  • 00:17:15.193 --> 00:17:16.394
  • These who have turned theworld upside down have come
  • 00:17:16.494 --> 00:17:19.063
  • to our city too now.
  • 00:17:19.163 --> 00:17:21.199
  • The power of the HolySpirit, the power of the Spirit.
  • 00:17:21.299 --> 00:17:24.902
  • So, when the power of theHoly Spirit, the revelation,
  • 00:17:25.002 --> 00:17:27.572
  • the understanding of theHoly Spirit was returned
  • 00:17:27.672 --> 00:17:29.740
  • to the church, mainly aroundthe 20th century, the turn
  • 00:17:29.841 --> 00:17:33.277
  • of the 20th century, late1900s, early 2000s,
  • 00:17:33.377 --> 00:17:38.483
  • when people began to understand,I think Satan said I've got
  • 00:17:38.583 --> 00:17:43.254
  • to mess this up, so he createdall of this controversy,
  • 00:17:43.354 --> 00:17:47.391
  • he put the focus on one gift,and he got people afraid
  • 00:17:47.492 --> 00:17:51.429
  • of the Holy Spirit, and he'sdone a good job.
  • 00:17:51.529 --> 00:17:56.200
  • We even say things, and again,I'm not trying to put down
  • 00:17:56.300 --> 00:18:00.371
  • those that use this language,but we use the word evidence.
  • 00:18:00.471 --> 00:18:05.209
  • I'd rather usethe word benefits.
  • 00:18:05.309 --> 00:18:07.879
  • Here's the reason.
  • 00:18:07.979 --> 00:18:09.447
  • First of all, I don't thinkyou should put the focus
  • 00:18:09.547 --> 00:18:11.315
  • on one gift, althoughthat gift is valid.
  • 00:18:11.415 --> 00:18:14.085
  • It has not passed away,if you've heard that.
  • 00:18:14.185 --> 00:18:16.487
  • Nothing has passed away.
  • 00:18:16.587 --> 00:18:18.389
  • Heaven and earth will passaway before one word
  • 00:18:18.489 --> 00:18:20.224
  • of this book will pass away.
  • 00:18:20.324 --> 00:18:24.428
  • But, here are someevidences, or benefits,
  • 00:18:24.529 --> 00:18:27.899
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:27.999 --> 00:18:28.866
  • One is power.
  • 00:18:28.966 --> 00:18:30.301
  • You shall receive power whenthe Holy Spirit comes upon you,
  • 00:18:30.401 --> 00:18:32.303
  • power to witness, bythe way --
  • 00:18:32.403 --> 00:18:33.704
  • specifically, power to witness.
  • 00:18:33.804 --> 00:18:35.406
  • Another one is love.
  • 00:18:35.506 --> 00:18:37.642
  • 1 Corinthians 13talks about love.
  • 00:18:37.742 --> 00:18:40.444
  • 12 and 14 talk about thegifts, and in 13, Paul says,
  • 00:18:40.545 --> 00:18:44.015
  • if you don't have love, I don'tcare how many gifts you have.
  • 00:18:44.115 --> 00:18:47.285
  • You need to have love.
  • 00:18:47.385 --> 00:18:48.519
  • Fruit is a benefit of theSpirit, the fruit of the Spirit.
  • 00:18:48.619 --> 00:18:51.756
  • And then gifts, and that'sall of the gifts, not just one.
  • 00:18:51.856 --> 00:18:55.026
  • Power, love,fruit, and gifts.
  • 00:18:55.126 --> 00:18:58.796
  • So, Here's number three.He's my God.
  • 00:18:58.896 --> 00:19:03.668
  • He's my God.
  • 00:19:03.768 --> 00:19:05.336
  • Now, I just want to showyou how some of us
  • 00:19:05.436 --> 00:19:09.707
  • have been taught negativelyabout the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:19:09.807 --> 00:19:15.213
  • When I say He's my God, ifI said the Father is my God,
  • 00:19:15.313 --> 00:19:22.253
  • and you don't haveany problem with that.
  • 00:19:22.353 --> 00:19:24.522
  • Or if I said Jesus is myGod, and you don't have
  • 00:19:24.622 --> 00:19:27.091
  • a problem with that.
  • 00:19:27.191 --> 00:19:28.292
  • But, if I say the HolySpirit and you have a problem
  • 00:19:28.392 --> 00:19:30.094
  • with it,something's wrong.
  • 00:19:30.194 --> 00:19:33.798
  • Because, He's partof the trinity.
  • 00:19:33.898 --> 00:19:36.634
  • There are many, many versesthat talk about the trinity.
  • 00:19:36.734 --> 00:19:40.071
  • In the ones we just read,let me show the Father,
  • 00:19:40.171 --> 00:19:43.441
  • Son, and Holy Spiritin one verse.
  • 00:19:43.541 --> 00:19:45.910
  • One verse.
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:47.345
  • John 14:16, "And I", that'sJesus, "will pray the Father,
  • 00:19:47.445 --> 00:19:52.917
  • and He will giveyou another Helper."
  • 00:19:53.017 --> 00:19:54.952
  • There's Jesus, Father, andHoly Spirit, same verse.
  • 00:19:55.052 --> 00:19:57.888
  • John 14:26, "But the Helper,the Holy Spirit, whom the Father
  • 00:19:57.989 --> 00:20:02.827
  • will send in My name" --Holy Spirit, Father,
  • 00:20:02.927 --> 00:20:06.797
  • Jesus, same verse.
  • 00:20:06.897 --> 00:20:08.432
  • John 15:26, "But when theHelper comes",
  • 00:20:08.532 --> 00:20:11.469
  • that's the Holy Spirit, "whomI", Jesus, "shall send you
  • 00:20:11.569 --> 00:20:14.605
  • from the Father".
  • 00:20:14.705 --> 00:20:16.240
  • And then, here's one wherethe Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • 00:20:16.340 --> 00:20:18.976
  • are actually all inthe same place at the same time,
  • 00:20:19.076 --> 00:20:23.648
  • and many of ushave never connected it.
  • 00:20:23.748 --> 00:20:26.183
  • It's when Jesus wasbaptized, in Luke 3:22.
  • 00:20:26.284 --> 00:20:29.687
  • "And the Holy Spiritdescended in bodily form,
  • 00:20:29.787 --> 00:20:35.126
  • like a dove upon Him",that's Jesus, "and a voice came
  • 00:20:35.226 --> 00:20:39.163
  • from heaven which said,"You are my beloved Son,
  • 00:20:39.263 --> 00:20:41.866
  • in you I am well pleased."
  • 00:20:41.966 --> 00:20:44.468
  • The Father, Son, and HolySpirit defer to one another.
  • 00:20:44.568 --> 00:20:49.507
  • The Father glorifies andmagnifies the Son, the Son
  • 00:20:49.607 --> 00:20:53.144
  • only does what the Fathersays, the Son tells you
  • 00:20:53.244 --> 00:20:56.681
  • that the Holy Spirit is comingwhen He's coming,
  • 00:20:56.781 --> 00:20:59.150
  • the Holy Spirit leads youto Jesus.
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:01.519
  • If we could listen in ona conversation between
  • 00:21:01.619 --> 00:21:05.156
  • the Father, the Son, and theHoly Spirit, it would sound
  • 00:21:05.256 --> 00:21:07.458
  • something like this.
  • 00:21:07.558 --> 00:21:08.659
  • You know, you're wonderful.
  • 00:21:08.759 --> 00:21:09.593
  • No, you're wonderful.
  • 00:21:09.694 --> 00:21:10.394
  • No, you're wonderful.
  • 00:21:10.494 --> 00:21:11.162
  • No, you're wonderful.
  • 00:21:11.262 --> 00:21:12.129
  • No, you're wonderful.God.
  • 00:21:12.229 --> 00:21:16.801
  • Here are two verses thatoutright prove
  • 00:21:16.901 --> 00:21:19.970
  • that the Holy Spirit's God.
  • 00:21:20.071 --> 00:21:21.972
  • Acts 5:3, "Peter said,"Ananias, why has Satan filled
  • 00:21:22.073 --> 00:21:27.211
  • your heart tolie to the Holy Spirit?"
  • 00:21:27.311 --> 00:21:31.048
  • And then, Verse 4 says,"You've not lied to men,
  • 00:21:31.148 --> 00:21:34.352
  • but to God".
  • 00:21:34.452 --> 00:21:37.922
  • You lied to the Holy Spirit,so you lied to God.
  • 00:21:38.022 --> 00:21:43.494
  • I read something years andyears ago in a commentary.
  • 00:21:43.594 --> 00:21:47.231
  • I wrote it down, and then Ikind of rewrote it because
  • 00:21:47.331 --> 00:21:50.468
  • it was Old English and itwas hard to understand.
  • 00:21:50.568 --> 00:21:53.537
  • So, this is not somethingI wrote, but it's something
  • 00:21:53.637 --> 00:21:56.407
  • that I changed a little bit thata commentator wrote, alright?
  • 00:21:56.507 --> 00:22:00.745
  • But all of these sentences havea Scripture to back them up,
  • 00:22:00.845 --> 00:22:04.215
  • and many of thesesentences have multiple
  • 00:22:04.315 --> 00:22:07.318
  • Scriptures to back them up.
  • 00:22:07.418 --> 00:22:08.886
  • So, let me read to youabout the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:08.986 --> 00:22:11.622
  • The Holy Spirit intercedesthrough us on earth.
  • 00:22:11.722 --> 00:22:15.793
  • The Holy Spirit calls andqualifies ministers
  • 00:22:15.893 --> 00:22:19.330
  • for their work.
  • 00:22:19.430 --> 00:22:21.165
  • It is the Holy Spirit who makesthem overseers over the flock.
  • 00:22:21.265 --> 00:22:25.269
  • He hears, speaks, teaches,and guides us into all truth.
  • 00:22:25.369 --> 00:22:31.442
  • He glorifies Christ,receives from Christ, shows us
  • 00:22:31.542 --> 00:22:34.979
  • Christ, and brings all ofChrist's words
  • 00:22:35.079 --> 00:22:37.848
  • to our remembrance.
  • 00:22:37.948 --> 00:22:39.550
  • It is better for us thatJesus left so He could come.
  • 00:22:39.650 --> 00:22:43.053
  • He shows us things to come,knows the deep things of God,
  • 00:22:43.154 --> 00:22:46.824
  • searches all things,and reveals all things.
  • 00:22:46.924 --> 00:22:49.660
  • Where He is,there is liberty.
  • 00:22:49.760 --> 00:22:52.329
  • The writers of the Biblespoke as they were moved by Him.
  • 00:22:52.430 --> 00:22:56.233
  • We are warned not togrieve Him or quench Him.
  • 00:22:56.333 --> 00:22:59.837
  • The sin against Him isunpardonable, because sin
  • 00:22:59.937 --> 00:23:03.908
  • against Him is against theonly one who can reveal
  • 00:23:04.008 --> 00:23:07.211
  • the Son to us.
  • 00:23:07.311 --> 00:23:08.913
  • Unless a man is born of theSpirit, he cannot enter
  • 00:23:09.013 --> 00:23:11.382
  • the kingdom of God.
  • 00:23:11.482 --> 00:23:13.117
  • We are convicted by Him,born again by Him,
  • 00:23:13.217 --> 00:23:15.753
  • led by Him, filled with Him,and sealed by Him.
  • 00:23:15.853 --> 00:23:20.124
  • Is that good?
  • 00:23:20.224 --> 00:23:22.460
  • That's the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:23:22.560 --> 00:23:27.064
  • So, let me tellyou one more thing.
  • 00:23:27.164 --> 00:23:28.632
  • I was ministering in achurch one time, years ago,
  • 00:23:28.732 --> 00:23:32.236
  • and it's back when ministerswould sit on the platform.
  • 00:23:32.336 --> 00:23:36.774
  • And so, I was seatedon the platform.
  • 00:23:36.874 --> 00:23:38.676
  • It was another church thatI was visiting to speak.
  • 00:23:38.776 --> 00:23:41.445
  • And during worship, I saw thislady in the congregation,
  • 00:23:41.545 --> 00:23:45.883
  • and the Holy Spirit spoke a Wordto my heart.
  • 00:23:45.983 --> 00:23:48.752
  • So when I got up to speak,I said to her,
  • 00:23:48.853 --> 00:23:51.388
  • "Ma'am, would you stand up?
  • 00:23:51.489 --> 00:23:53.224
  • The Holy Spirit's givingme a Word for you".
  • 00:23:53.324 --> 00:23:55.593
  • She stood up and I said toher, "During worship, I saw you,
  • 00:23:55.693 --> 00:23:59.463
  • and the Holy Spiritsaid to me,
  • 00:23:59.563 --> 00:24:01.832
  • "Robert, do you know her past?"
  • 00:24:01.932 --> 00:24:05.736
  • And when I said that, sheliterally put her head down,
  • 00:24:05.836 --> 00:24:10.441
  • I think in shame, obviously.
  • 00:24:10.541 --> 00:24:12.676
  • But you have to understand,that's not where
  • 00:24:12.776 --> 00:24:14.245
  • the Holy Spirit left it.
  • 00:24:14.345 --> 00:24:16.013
  • So, I said to her, I said,"The Holy Spirit said to me,
  • 00:24:16.113 --> 00:24:18.115
  • "Robert, do youknow her past"?
  • 00:24:18.215 --> 00:24:21.886
  • And I said, "No,Lord, I don't".
  • 00:24:21.986 --> 00:24:25.189
  • And He said, "Hmm,neither do I."
  • 00:24:25.289 --> 00:24:30.327
  • And I said to her, "Nowma'am, I know God's omniscient.
  • 00:24:30.427 --> 00:24:33.497
  • I know that, and I knowHe knows everything.
  • 00:24:33.597 --> 00:24:35.900
  • But the Bible says that Hehas chosen to remember our sins
  • 00:24:36.000 --> 00:24:40.671
  • no more, and God wantedme to tell you,
  • 00:24:40.771 --> 00:24:43.707
  • since He's chosen not to bringit up again, why don't you start
  • 00:24:43.807 --> 00:24:47.745
  • choosing not tobring it up anymore?"
  • 00:24:47.845 --> 00:24:51.448
  • And she got this bigsmile on her face.
  • 00:24:51.549 --> 00:24:54.785
  • See, the person who told meto say that is not
  • 00:24:54.885 --> 00:24:58.088
  • a weird person.
  • 00:24:58.188 --> 00:25:00.791
  • He's a wonderful person,
  • 00:25:00.891 --> 00:25:03.127
  • and He wants to getto know you better.
  • 00:25:03.227 --> 00:25:05.462

  • the entire series,"The God I Never Knew".

  • The reason is that many,many times, we watch a program

  • and we hear something, and Godstarts something in us,
  • 00:25:29.853 --> 00:25:32.890
  • but we don't allow that to growor to be finished in us.
  • 00:25:32.990 --> 00:25:37.394
  • And as I said, I grew upthinking that the Holy Spirit
  • 00:25:37.494 --> 00:25:39.997
  • was weird, or someoneto be afraid of, but He's not.
  • 00:25:40.097 --> 00:25:43.634
