The Activity of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Church Age believers, part 39.
Here he is making a clear distinction between the way that he and all those in the Old Testament age of Israel experienced the Spirit, …
… and the outpouring of the Spirit that will come as a result of the life, death and resurrection, ascension and session of Jesus.
1. In the Church Age each and every believer will receive the outpouring, the gift, the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Without measure.
This is different from the Old Testament when a few chosen men received the Spirit resting on them temporarily to perform a specific task.
2. He does not measure out a little of the Spirit here, a little there. He POURS OUT the Spirit in rivers of living water. Unlimited potential for whomever receives the Spirit.
What are some of the blessings that flow from the Spirit as rivers of living water?
All truth is available now, Joh 16:13.
Love, the same love that God has for His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, Rom 5:5.
The entire nine-fold fruit of the Spirit flows from God giving the Spirit without measure, Gal 5:22-23.
Life, God’s life – eternal life, Joh 6:63; Rom 8:2; 2Co 3:6; Gal 6:8.
Power, Rom 15:13, Eph 3:16
Provision for our deliverance from evil, Phi 1:19
