God, the Holy “Who”?    

It is interesting that even in the Letters written in Scripture, little reference is made to God, the Holy Spirit. In Paul’s and Peter’s and John’s greetings, reference is made to God, the Father and Jesus, the Son. But…no reference to the Holy Spirit. Is that possibly because it is His inspiration by which the Letters were written? Thus, He remains in the background? Or, is it because He is a gentleman and does not boast of Himself?

And today, the “dynamis” power of the Godhead seems to be the unknown quantity.

Be that as it may, it was requested of me and I have been privileged to develop a one-unit, college-level course: THEOLOGY342: God, the Holy Spirit. I wanted to name it: The Holy Spirit is not a Ghost. But that was overruled.

The Course follows the answers to seven questions:

~ Who is He?

~ What are we to call the entering into a relationship with Him?

~ When does this relationship begin?

~ What do we bring into the relationship?

~ What does the Holy Spirit bring into the relationship?

~ How do we cooperate with the Holy Spirit working in and through us?

~ In what ways might we offend the Holy Spirit?

The entire scope of the Course is saturated in Scripture. It could probably be taught without the instructor saying one word! We search the Scriptures to find the answers. If you would like a copy of my Course notes, I will be happy to send you a .pdf file. You need to let me know: This email address is being protected from spambots.
