Keith Mosher - How Are We Led by the Holy Spirit Sunday Morning Service 4/19/2015

Feb 23, 2022
memphis school of preaching students had to go to the pulpit polishing series as a group for the first time for the first time as a group correct my grammar there and last year i was asked to speak on the subject of the

holy

spirit

three times and i think I have spoken on the fruits of the

spirit

and the direct operation of the

holy

spirit and blasphemy against the holy spirit I have been asked to speak three more times this year on the subject of being led by the spirit that you see on the screen behind me on the topic of enlightenment of the spirit the holy spirit has to help me understand the bible no but that is taught even among us and then they wanted me to talk they want me to talk about the gift of the holy spirit i thought it would be important that we study this topic this

morning

because now what calvin taught in the middle ages and what augustine and others taught before him is being taught that without the direct guidance of the holy spirit but you can convert You are not a Christian or remain a Christian and I say it is being taught among us I think it is important that we study this the preacher you are listening to right now came out of that kind of denominational thinking in the 1960s i don't intend to go back But I do think that the subject of the holy spirit is one of the most neglected studies among us and one of the most misguided subjects among us in terms of whether it is doing something to me or through me directly. this is the subject of man and the common opinion is that there is a direct direction of the holy spirit that is mind over mind separate and apart from the message or the word of god and that happens for every christian, in fact, i have had brothers. and the sisters tell me that they pray for this direction when we talk about the word spirit we are talking about three different spirits we are talking about in the Scriptures we are talking about the human spirit so man knows the spirit of man except the spirit of man that is in he first corinthians 2 11. so we know there is a human spirit if you took away my human spirit i would know immediately i would be dead and then i know from experience that i have a human spirit there is a holy spirit first corinthians 2 11 save the spirit the spirit knows all things yes the deep things of god this being is the one that is so misunderstood misunderstood there is an evil spirit at work ii corinthians he is called the god of this world second corinthians 4 beginning in verse 4. and he hinders the gospel of many ways through your second corinthian 11 preachers and through those who do evil and through all the bad things in the world do but I'm talking this

morning

about the holy spirit the god of heaven is the one we have to go to if I don't teach you something from god's message this morning then don't believe the law and the testimony if they don't speak according to this word is because it does not dawn on them isaiah 8 20. i don't know what you think the holy spirit does what i would like to show us is what the bible says it does and whatever the holy spirit does let it be done by you and not i will stop this sermon will not stop it and nothing say will not stop it what does the book say the holy spirit does and that is what we want to see this morning the holy spirit is a deity it is the third person of divinity and i must assume that to begin this it's not a power just coming from god as jehovah's witnesses teach he's not an ethereal construct being like casper the friendly ghost he's a spirit and i've never seen a spirit i don't know what constitutes a spirit i know god is spirit john 4 24 and this is the holy spirit the third person of divinity he is present everywhere i will flee from your spirit the psalmist asked psalm 139 beginning in verse 4. and so he is omnipresent he has that aspect of deity he is also omniscient he he knows all things, yes, the deep things of God 1 Corinthians 2 11. he is omnipotent he was the one who organized the creation genesis 1 2 he has all the power micah 3 8 he is omnipotent he is also eternal according to hebrews 9 14 we are told about the eternal spirit no we're talking about a cloud of vapor or some being floating in the sky somewhere hovering over the baptisteries waiting to jump into people's bodies we're talking about the third person of godhood where is he now he is right now in heaven revelation chapters four and five he is not at this moment on earth literally he is himself in heaven he is the third person of divinity he has never been given a body he has no corporeal substance poral is not like christ to whom the word was given a body the second person of divinity became flesh and dwelt among us we redeemed his glory the glory belongs to the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth john 1 14. the holy spirit he has never been in a body he has no bodily presence he is the one involved in our salvation john 3 5. he is a person in the sense that he has a mind god knows what is the mind of the spirit romans 8 26 god 8 27 god he knows he has a mind he has knowledge he has the knowledge of everything and i have used this verse three times first to the corinthians 2 11. he not only has knowledge he has a will he told the first missionaries not to go to a place called bithynia the holy spirit has will according to facts 16. not only does he have will he has emotions he can be afflicted ephesians 4 30. emotions will mind knowledge everything belongs to one being not some kind of ethereal cloud of some kind or casper the ghost ma friendly has the ability to love romans 15 13. that is god is love and this loves romans 15 30. can sin against ephesians 5 and verse 30. can be resisted how is resisted when someone does not obey what the preacher says acts 7 51 nehemiah wrote that god had given his good spirit to those who were in the desert nehemiah 9 20. but in verse 30 of that same chapter nehemiah told us exactly how that was done through the prophets who spoke to those people the spirit saint listen carefully he has never spoken directly to anyone for that person's private benefit he is not allowed to do that we will see in a moment the holy spirit has never spoken to anyone for that person's private benefit he is not allowed to do that it is always through a prophet or through a preacher who resists Ananias who lied to the apostles it was said that he lied to the holy spirit and to god that is to god acts 5 3 and 4. he did not lie directly the holy spirit lied to peter who knew by inspiration that ananias was lying and ananias got away with that lie the very authority of the apostles would have been undermined at the beginning of the church and they were the ones on whom the church had been built ephesians 2 20. the foundation of the apostles and prophets jesus christ himself being the main corner stone can be lied to but it is done when you l that is, to one of his messengers one of his preachers can speak the spirit speaks expressly in the times that he was inspiring the writers he told them expressly what he wanted them to hear and write first timothy 4 1. not only can he speak he can teach that very verse he says he teaches is a being is what im trying to show you not some kind of cloud of steam he is good a good spirit nehemiah 920 and again he has no physical body i want to draw your attention to john 16 7. jesus made a great promise to the apostles d e that they would be guided by this being to all the truth and in the last supper john chapters 13 14 15 and 16 again 13 14 15 16. they were all about the last supper and in that supper 11 men were present one left to betray him that It was Judas but eleven men heard him tell them John 14 25 I have told you these things while I am now with you brothers and sisters he is not speaking with you and me on John 14 13 14 15 and 16.
keith mosher   how are we led by the holy spirit sunday morning service 4 19 2015
He is speaking with the apostles he said I said these things to be still present with you and he said it is convenient for you john 16 7 that I go away because if I did not leave the spirit would not come why it was convenient for him to go away jesus is in a body bodies are cannot be omnipresent it could not have been he could not having been present everywhere to guide those apostles to all the truth, this who is the third person of divinity who is deity can be present everywhere and therefore it was convenient for Jesus to go and the holy spirit to come guide these apostles into all truth notice john 14 16 starting now when jesus speaks to the apostles about this coming one and in verse 17 he says or 16 he says who the world even the spirit of truth who the world cannot receive because you don't know him they have been listening to the teaching of the holy spirit for three more years why because they were listening to jesus teach and what jesus taught the holy spirit taught what the holy spirit taught jesus already said taught whatever it is that Jesus taught the father knew that all this is a message we do not receive a different message from each one in divinity we receive the same message and this the world does not know because it cannot see it he is a spirit and says he cannot receive it I want to give him a idea of ​​that word receive it is convenient for me to leave they are worried you remember that he is leaving us we have been so close to him all this time and he is leaving us what are we going to do I am not going to leave them helpless no I'm going to leave them orphans verse 17 I'm going to send them one another dildo another like me but the world can't' you don't see it and it can't king james has received that is the word lombano can't take it by force how is he going to take it from me do to me because you can't see him and when he comes verse 13 of john 16 same dinner will guide them to all truth the work of the holy spirit in the past I'm talking about that right now he was not only active in guiding these men in all truth he was active in the creation of the universe psalm 104 verse 30 also in other places of the psalms but genesis 1 2 says that the holy spirit organized the chaos of creation work say so by your spirit you have adorned the heavens work 26 13. here is a being that is deity brothers and sisters i want to ask us a question this morning why we fail in our thinking when we come to thoughts about the holy spirit we understand our relationship that god is a being and the bible says that d god literally dwells in us the bible says that we dwell in god literally first john 4. the bible says that christ dwells in us literally we do not think that we will not collapse there the bible says that we dwell in christ literally the bible says that the holy spirit dwells in we literally if he literally dwelt in me i would be the deity incarnate you should have bowed to me when you came here today jesus was incarnate the deity was in a body he only happened once the bible says we walk in the spirit the bible also says the word that God dwells richly in us means that I have a bible in my head but somehow we fell apart at that point because of what the denominations have taught and what some of my brothers and sisters have said but the bible doesn't teach that it is the point that he testified in the to the apostles about the life of christ and to guide them to all the truth john 16 13. it happened that marks in your notes there some of you are taking notes ii peter 1 3 peter said i was led into all truth god has given us all things pertaining to life and godliness how peter through the knowledge of him who called us through From the knowledge of him they taught me how you taught it Peter by the holy spirit John 16 13.

More Interesting Facts About,

keith mosher how are we led by the holy spirit sunday morning service 4 19 2015...

They taught me and guided me to all the truth Peter had all the truth before writing it he had the treasure in a clay pot second corinthians 4 7. they were men walking in new testaments a debate with a brother in 1991 that brother told me the early church didn't have the whole truth why would you think they were our patron? Today I got up and showed them that on the day of Pentecost they not only had the whole truth, they had 12 translations of the preaching of the new testament. We call them apostles, but they were speaking in other languages ​​to people who needed to hear it that way and we have 12 translations of the new testament right there on the day of pentecost and the old testament was known to those devout jews from every nation under heaven so on the day of pentecost you had a whole bible because those apostles were walking around new testaments they knew the truth before they wrote it in fact they knew more than they wrote many other signs truly to jesus in the presence of his disciples that are not written in this book but that are written so that you may believe that jesus is the christ the son of the living god and believing you may have life through his name john 20 30 and 31 the holy spirit i is always in the miraculous area when he works with the students and i am studying This month every verse of scripture that has the word spirit in it and we have already noted that whenever the holy spirit is said to be literally present, a miracle occurs.
keith mosher   how are we led by the holy spirit sunday morning service 4 19 2015
I think it is a very interesting and necessary fact that whenever the holy spirit is literally present a miracle occurs, whether it is a miracle of inspiration or one of the nine gifts mentioned in 1 corinthians 12. the work of the holy spirit today i have a quote there that I can't read, I hope you can read it, but he highlights the point that this brother makes in john 16 that the way people were converted by the holy spirit was through the message of the apostles, they were led to the whole truth yesyou study at every conversion in the book of acts, you will notice that the holy spirit always used a preacher, never directly influenced anyone, in fact, the holy spirit knew there was a fellow writing on a cart one day and told the preacher go joi n myself to that carriage why didn't the holy spirit go to do it could you open your bible to john 16 13 and 14 with me please for a moment if you don't remember anything else than what we see in this morning's text please remember this passage patsy i'm so glad you're worshiping with us patsy is the sister of the man who encouraged me to preach so you know don't blame her just on her brother but patsy i saw a young man a man stood in Wooddale one day he was out from one of these charismatic groups and read this passage to us and said that this verse had converted him.

How did that happen? Look this is John 16 13-14. he has come he will guide the apostles into all truth now look at this he will not speak of himself whatever he hears that he will speak will show you things to come he will glorify the holy spirit to me he is not allowed to speak of himself or glorify himself yourself and any teacher any preacher any group any writing evangelist any theologian who tells you that the holy spirit is directing or guiding you or in some way being exalted is automatically a false teacher i do not belong to the church of the holy spirit by which no I died on the cross I belong to the Church of Christ He is my comforter First John 2 1 and 2.
We have a paraclete lawyer with the Father Jesus Christ the Just We never apply the comforter the Holy Spirit to any of my works directly I Can't they be the only ones for whom it was the consolation the apostles whom he guided towards all the truth and the first prophets of the New Testament who needed the same guidance? It's going well, there I am, I just showed you, the Holy Spirit is active in my spiritual birth. We must be born of the spirit and of or on water and of the Spirit, John 3 verse 5. That's right, but how is that done?
Let's go to 1 Corinthians 2, 12, 13. Because by one spirit we are all baptized into one body now the text says we are baptized by spirit the day i was baptized i walked up to an assembly and sat in the front pew and waited until the holy spirit came down and immersed me in the water right there is no bait he is shaking his head no no that did not happen but this text says by one spirit we are all baptized into one body i wonder how to do that let's go to hebrews 10 a moment and verse 8. and here the writer of hebrews it talks about those offerings that were made by law how in the world the law made offerings a scroll suddenly came out and offered an animal on an altar somewhere not when it says they were made by law it means they were made according to the law or that the law instructed those offerings those presentations and here we have a verse that says that by one spirit we are all baptized into one body every denominational preacher who does not know what the text is teaching will tell you that this is the baptism of the holy spirit no, because by a spirit that is in accordance with his instructions, we were all baptized into a church or body and so you have how he is involved in our let me skip that one too that one too that one too let's go mate hew 6 33. many people wrongly equate the work of the holy spirit with providence we must never make that providence was in effect long before the age of the holy spirit john 7 38-39 the holy spirit had not yet been given because jesus had not yet glorified and long before that age providence was in force if you don't believe it study the book of esther or ruth or any of the texts of the old testament think about the lilies of ca mpo that god makes so glorious or the birds of the sky that he sees if they need a direct operation of the holy spirit to be beautiful or to be protected by god we do not have a promise here in matthew 6 33 that when we seek first the kingdom of god he the father adds all these things to our lives providence works how through natural law i don't know exactly how god does that but it's interesting for me to read some old testament situations and see god figure this out how in the world did he make you know when you read your old testament you have to realize god control led kings and kingdoms people individuals all providentially it didn't take a miracle and somehow he achieved his purpose in all of that which is amazing god's providential power is just amazing but god neither he does not even use providential power when it comes to my salvation he uses the gospel the word of god john romans 1 16 in the sense that it is not an opera direct ation however providentially I could solve it where a preacher came to see me or someone came and taught me the gospel john 7 17. and so we have here a promise to a group of people guide them to all the truth if yes a verse that is used to insist that there is direct guidance from the holy spirit for the son of god today is 1 john 4 13. i invite your attention to this we hereby know that we dwell in him and he and we because he has given us his spirit brothers and Sisters I want you to try to put yourself in a first century audience let's go to the day of Pentecost for a moment and you're in that audience and you heard a noise you've never heard before suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind filled the whole the house where they were sitting and when this was heard outside the crowd gathered now they are standing there and all of a sudden they hear these apostles speaking in the languages ​​of their own countries and they knew that Because those apostles hadn't studied them and that's the only reason a language could be successful is if it knew the speaker hadn't studied it, the audience knew what they are.
Aren't all these Galileans how they learn all these languages? So they heard this tremendous noise. They heard all these languages. Don't say pour out his spirit Acts 2 16-17 He said he would appear far from there They were told to stay in Jerusalem until they were endowed with power, not a person, and when they received that power, the crowd knew it and now convinced me something convinced me that when he used the word spirit they thought in an ordinary way if you're standing in that audience and if you're in the first century church and you've seen all these miraculous gifts and john says he's given us of his spirit that you're going to think, are you going to look at that with a 21st century glass or a first century glass, how are you going to see that, John said, you have a direct testimony of the same holy spirit, that is not for me, it was for the first Christians because they did not have a new testament, no they had way of knowing the truth otherwise they would receive different gifts than we receive today mark 16 20. they lived in a miraculous age. directed directly by the spirit no jd thomas once wrote god the spirit and the bible are very active in the world today the father is not well i cant even read what he says oh the father is not far from any of us i see what he is saying can I not read that I will only tell you what he said where is the holy spirit today he is in heaven and it happens that the holy spirit uses the word of god to reach us I want to invite your attention since we are close look at three verses now let's go to romans 10 17. i'm looking at the written word and paul says then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of god i want you to underline the term word is branch there is another word for a word in the original logus but that is not the word here this is the word krama now put ephesians 6 17 with that verse and take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of god that is rhema what does frama mean all scriptures are dad or by inspiration that or nustos of god the breath of god gives me this message crama means the word breath of god salvation today comes through a living message that has the breath of god the same breath that he used to make the dust collect life and made a man out of dust genesis 2 7. so here you have a message that is alive and active sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to divide the soul and spirit in two and as a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of the heart hebrews 4 12. here is a message that knows when to cut where to cut and how deep to cut and it does not stop at the flesh but reaches to the soul and spirit this is a message brothers and sisters that is so powerful that when it reaches the human heart not only can it cause you and to be saved it can prevent us from sinning your word I have hidden it in my heart so as not to sin against you this is a message that is so powerful that adding anything to it is blasphemy the seed and It's the word of God, not the Holy Spirit.
Do you remember that satan came and took the seeds from those birds? Why didn't he take the Holy Spirit? He knew where the power was better than many today, my friend. If you want to be one of God's children. That message is already written right here and when you obey it I have obeyed the very message of the holy spirit and when you obey him when you begin to put that seed in your heart, he does the same thing through that seed that he does when he goes through a seed in your heart. the earth and produces a plant.
The seed is the word of God and that is what he uses to save you and me and to keep us on the right track on the road to heaven after we become Christians. Perhaps you are here this morning and have never obeyed the message of the holy spirit. he wants you to believe that jesus is the christ the son of the living god and he wants you to act on that thought he wants you to make the decision to stop sinning and follow the message and once you make that decision he wants you to do two things he wants you First of all and also the father and also the son wants you above all to confess with your mouth before witnesses that Jesus is the Christ the son of the living God now I never ask you as a foreign sinner confess your sins the bible does not teach that he asked you that you confess that jesus is the christ i think it is a great blessing i was 26 years old before i obeyed the gospel i could not have remembered how many sins i had committed to confess them all he does not ask god that he never asked the impossible he simply says confess to christ take the decision to stop sinning confess Christ with your mouth and then let someone immerse you in water and while you come out of that water emulating the death, burial and resurrection of Christ God goes to what It is going to put you in Christ, it is going to put you in the church, it is going to make you one of his children, that is the message that saves, I do not need anything else, it is the message of the Holy Spirit. we stand and while we sing my sins
