Ministries of the Holy Spirit
November 2018

Motto:
But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, how will the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory.

— 2 Corinthians 3:7–9

CURRENT TEACHING LETTER

Introduction 

When the Gospel of Christ is preached under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, souls are touched and lives are transformed. 

The church began in Jerusalem with the eleven apostles and several other followers of Jesus, about one hundred and twenty in all, gathered in the upper room “tarrying” for the Promise of the Father—the Holy Spirit—who arrived on the Day of Pentecost. Empowered by the Holy Spirit the apostle Peter preached a short but powerful speech that was a masterpiece message of the Gospel (see Acts 2:22–40). 

Unlike many of us who are called to preach, Peter did not wear any gloves when he spoke; he didn’t try to impress his audience nor attempt to be politically correct; but nor did he have any intention of getting under the skin of the religious leaders of his days. Peter preached a clear and straightforward message centered on the Lord Jesus, “a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst” (Acts 2:22). His message had three main elements: 

(1) Christ’s crucifixion—Who was crucified (Acts 2:23),
(2) Christ’s resurrection—Who was raised up from the dead by God (Acts 2:24, 32),
(3) Christ’s glorification—and Who was “exalted to the right hand of God” (Acts 2:33) 

Peter concluded his speech by saying: “Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified” (Acts 2:36). After Peter's message, the people asked: “Brethren, what shall we do?” (Acts 2:37) Peter answered: “Repent, and each of 
you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). Luke reported that approximately 3,000 people were baptized in water and with the Holy Spirit and added to the Church. 

Besides the fact that the Holy Spirit convicts the world “concerning sin and righteousness and judgment” (John 16:8–11), there are many other functions and ministries of the Holy Spirit. 

In the next few pages, we will explore the most important functions and ministries of the Holy Spirit. 

1. The Holy Spirit baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13); He baptizes believers in Christ's death (Romans 6:3).


Paul writes: “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:13).


What does it mean to be baptized into to Body of Christ? It simply means that as soon as another human being is born again, the Holy Spirit supernaturally immerses him or her into the spiritual Body of Christ. When a person repents and, by faith, confesses with his or her mouth the Lord Jesus, His divinity, His resurrection, and makes Him his or her personal Savior, that person is saved. The Bible teaches us: 

That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth, he confesses, resulting in salvation. (Romans 10:9–10) 

In that very moment, when I accepted Christ as my Savoir and Lord, the Holy Spirit, Who is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient, baptized me, baptized you into the body of Christ. 


In that very moment, when I accepted Christ as my Savoir and Lord, the Holy Spirit, Who is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient, baptized me, baptized you into the body of Christ.

Module VIII explores the area of spiritual gifts and fruits of the Spirit. Christ desires His church to be rich in spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12). God wants His children to reflect the character of Christ. Therefore the fruit of the spirit must be manifested in each of Christ’s disciples. “God is LOVE” (1 John 4:8b). “The fruit of the Spirit is love . . . .” (Galatians 5:22a). 

NOTE: For more about Advanced Discipleship Training (ADT) offered ONLINE by URFM please go to http://www.urfm.org/discipleship.html 

Intimacy with God is not possible without intimacy with the Holy Spirit. The fact is we are designed; we are created just for this – to walk with God in intimacy. Paul writes, “If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25). However, we cannot walk with someone without having an agreement with that person.


We cannot walk with the Person of the Holy Spirit if we have not completely surrendered our life to Him.

We read the Bible; we study the Bible, we meditate on the Bible, because the Author – the Holy Spirit lives inside of us. This is the delight of every child of God who is indwelled by the Living Christ to walk by the Spirit. 

Among the most important objectives of this module are: (*) To mentor willing disciples into understanding their own calling and gifts. (**) To equip disciples to better serve in the Body of Christ. (***) To remind disciples, according to 1 Timothy 1:6 to “kindle afresh the gift of God” entrusted to them by the Spirit. To lay down a platform from which each willing disciple can develop a genuine intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

Paul writes: “Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?” (Romans 6:3). This is a powerful foundational truth. This should not be complicated. It simply means that at the point of salvation, the Holy Spirit took my rebellious, Adamic spirit, and placed the old me in Christ on the cross. Even though Christ died almost 2,000 years ago, because the Holy Spirit placed my old self in Christ’s body, when Jesus died on the cross, I died with Him too. Dear believer, please understand this fact: When Christ was crucified you were also crucified with Him. This is the only way we could be delivered from the power of sin. 

Salvation is a complex and dynamic phenomenon. There is nothing static when it comes to salvation. We have been saved from the penalty of sin. This is called justification. As I write these words and as you read these words, we, you and I, are in a process, called progressive sanctification. Later on, when the Bride Groom returns, we shall be saved from the presence of sin. That is called glorification. 

2. The Spirit regenerates and renews the believer (Titus 3:5); He seals the believer (Ephesians 1:13, 2 Corinthians 1:21–22) to the Day of Redemption.

According to the New Testament’s teaching: “He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit” (Titus 3:5). 

Salvation is by grace: by faith alone, in Christ alone, for the Glory of God alone. We have been redeemed on the account of Christ and based on His merits on the cross. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we became new creatures in Him. Besides Titus 3:5, there is another Scripture which states this truth very clearly: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Corinthians 5:17). A genuine Christian is not a just a recovered sinner, or just one who claims sobriety for ten years or more, or just one who strives not to sin. A genuine Christian, is a born-again person, a completely new creation in Christ, a person who never existed before. This is what it means to be a born-again believer.

MODULE VIII: FRUITS & GIFTS—Developing a Genuine Intimacy with the Holy Spirit

"Grace-based, hope-filled, love-motived, this book is filled with encouragement to grow up into the fullness of Christ which is the birthright of every born again child of God. The living truth of our new creation realities and capabilities through our death, burial, and resurrection with Christ come through loud and clear.


This insightful proclamation is not just for the individual, but also for the church, the whole body of Christ learning to share His life in common as our source and supply for living to God’s glory.


If trying hard to be like Jesus is wearing you out you may want to read about trusting Jesus to live His life through you by His indwelling Spirit. The words and ideas in this book are not just for learning but 
for 
living!"
