II.UNDERSATNDING THE HOLY SPIRIT IS CENTRAL TO UNDERSTANDINGHOW GOD WORKS THROUGH THE LIFE OF THE BELIEVER
A.
The
primary
way the Holy Spirit interacted with people in the Old Testamentwas a selective “coming and going”. There was not an “abiding” sense of theHoly Spirit in or on people’s lives.1.Saul:
When he turned his back to leave Samuel, God gave him another heart. And all these signs came to pass that day. When they came to Gibeah,behold, a group of prophets met him, and 
the Spirit of God rushed uponhim, and he prophesied among them.
 
(1 Samuel 10:9–10 ESV)2.Bezalel:
“See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribeof Judah, and I have filled him with the
Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge and all craftsmanship…
(Exodus 31:2–3 ESV)B.Finally, the Old Testament prophesied of the time that the Holy Spirit would
rest
upon the Messiah in fullness and power.
 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
(Isaiah 11:2 ESV)
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me tobring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those whoare bound…
(Isaiah 61:1 ESV)
1.This was fulfilled at His baptism:
Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had beenbaptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came fromheaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” 
(Luke 3:21–22 ESV)2
 
2.It was declared, by Jesus Himself, in the synagogue:
 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled thescroll and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord isupon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaimthe year of the Lord’s favor.” And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue werefixed on him. And he began to say to them,
“Today this Scripture hasbeen fulfilled in your hearing.” 
(Luke 4:17–21 ESV)
3.The Holy Spirit has often been a dividing force because Hewill not be silent or remain still.C.Jesus spoke of a time when the Holy Spirit would come and be
in
every born-again believer.
 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
(John 14:16–17 ESV)
1.In fact, the coming of the Holy Spirit was so significant that Jesus madetwo huge observations:
Nevertheless, I tell you the truth:
it is to your advantage
that I go away,for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
(John 16:7 ESV)
So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at thistime restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you toknow times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But 
you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon yo
u, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 
(Acts 1:6–8 ESV)
III.WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR US TODAY?
A.He gives life and strength.
1.Born of the Spirit:
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 
(John 3:6–7 ESV)3
