Let's open the Word of God to the eighth chapter of the book of Romans, that beloved, wonderful treatise of the Apostle Paul on the gospel and all the aspects of it. And we're looking at Romans 8 because that's the chapter on the Holy Spirit and this would be Part 6, or message number six, in the study of the life of the Holy Spirit, life and ministry of the Holy Spirit in the believer...in the believer. What the Holy Spirit does in us.
And I began this series because of all the misrepresentations of the Holy Spirit that abound in the contemporary Christian world. It is so terribly misrepresented, so insulted, so grieved, so quenched, to borrow biblical language, and so blasphemed. If you watch the current Charismatic lineup of Holy Spirit anointed people, you would have absolutely no idea what the Holy Spirit does. It seems as if they are the victims of an unholy Spirit rather than a Holy Spirit, THE Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit doesn't make people worldly, carnal, boastful, slick, unaccountable, outrageous, etc., etc. The Holy Spirit has one objective and that is to make people holy...holy. So if somebody says that he is, or she is anointed by the Holy Spirit, what should be manifest in that person is evident holiness. That's the work of the Holy Spirit. That's why He's called the Holy Spirit....
