essay: 7 Ministries of Holy Spirit

October 5, 2015

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is one of seven salvation ministries by God the Holy Spirit.
1. Efficacious grace is the enabling power of the Holy Spirit to make faith in Jesus Christ effective for eternal salvation. When positive volition is exercised toward Gospel information resulting in faith in Christ, the Holy Spirit picks up that weak faith from the spiritually dead unbeliever and makes that faith effectual, carrying the believer to the point of salvation.
2. Regeneration is where the omnipotence of the Holy Spirit creates a human spirit for the imputation of eternal life to that human spirit. This is being spiritually born again. The new believer then becomes trichotomous, having a body, soul, and spirit.
3. In the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the omnipotence of the Holy Spirit enters the believer into union with Christ, making the Church Age believer a part of the royal family of God.
4. In the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the omnipotence of the Holy Spirit creates a temple in the believer’s body for the indwelling of Christ as the Shekinah Glory, 1 Cor 3:16, 6:1920; 2 Cor 6:16.
5. The filling of the Spirit is the initial entrance into the divine dynasphere at the point of salvation where the omnipotence of the Holy Spirit can be utilized in the execution of the protocol plan, Eph 5:18.
6. In the sealing ministry of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit guarantees through His own signature, the existence of our own portfolio of invisible assets and the availability of divine power, Eph 1:1314, 4:30.
7. The sovereign distribution of spiritual gifts to every believer at salvation is a ministry of the Holy Spirit, which is for the function of royalty, 1 Cor 12:11.
