In Acts 2:38 “Then peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”
You cannot work enough to attain the gift of enteral life; you can’t get eternal life by paying a price for it. There is nothing in this world that you could ever do to give you eternal life. It’s a gift of God, and the same thing with righteousness.
So the Holy Spirit of God is a gift, its God’s gift to us. What is so important to us about this gift? The gift of God is Eternal life; Eternal life is so important. Without eternal life you don’t have the same nature with God. There is no communication there is no relationship. Eternal life is Gods life given to you, how Important is that? So righteousness is the same thing, without righteousness you can’t stand before the Lord.
The Holy Spirit is an extra-ordinary gift given to us as God’s children, first because the Holy Spirit is like a downloader, without the Holy Spirit you can’t get heavenly materiality into the human system. It takes the power of the Holy Spirit to download heavenly files, the heavenly materiality into the human system. It take’s the Holy Spirit to do that.
It takes the Holy Spirit to give you the understanding of God’s word. It takes the Holy Spirit for you to know that Jesus Christ is the son of God. You would not know that without the Holy Spirit.
There is no reasoning in this world that can convince you that Jesus Christ is the son of God. No human reasoning will ever convince you. There is no way, because how do you know God? Who is God? You can’t even know Him; it takes the Holy Spirit of God to introduce you to the heavenly father; to help you accept that truth that Jesus Christ is the son of God. Only the Holy Spirit can help you understand that.
Only the Holy Spirit can help you accept the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the ascension of Jesus Christ, only the Holy Spirit can help you be convinced you that the blood of Jesus Christ was adequate for our salvation. Only the Holy Spirit can help you understand all of that. Without the Holy Ghost you won’t know it, you will never accept it because there are no human parameters for judging this; so when you find that you can accept these things, then understand that the Holy Spirit has ministered to you.
