The Communion of the Spirit with the spirit
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity, He is both Lord and God; He is not made, not created, not begotten but proceeding, He proceeds from the Father and the Son and with the Father and the Son He is worship and glorified.
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.(Galatians 4:6|KJV-
The evidence that we are children of God is the indwelling and manifestation of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The Holy Spirit does not live in the air or in a particular building but, God releases it into the heart of His son’s so they can rightly speak of Him as their father.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:(Romans 8:16|KJV-
It is through the fellowship of the Holy Spirit that we understand that we are Children of God; the fellowship with the Holy Spirit is a system of witnessing between the Spirit and spirit, it is the ability of the Holy Spirit to communicate God’s plan and purposes for living to our spirit and where such communication is not in place in one’s life, then Sonship in Christ cannot be claim.
When one becomes born again, the first assignment of the Holy Spirit is to convict him or her of previous sin and upon that conviction, He causes the spirit of the man to be receptive to the instructions of his new life in Christ.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.(Genesis 2:7|KJV-
The Holy Spirit does not communicate to our bodies or our soul, it’s designed to communicate with the spirit of man, it is this spirit that controls the soul and the body. This breath of the spirit into man was corrupted when man sinned in the Garden of Eden, after Christ redeemed man, He breathed upon us the Holy Spirit (John 20:22). Man from this time henceforth has been designed to be lead by the Holy Spirit:
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.(Romans 8:14|KJV-
Every child of God is expected to be led by the Spirit of God, this leading is acheived through the Communion of the Spirit with the spirit. As we have seen in Gen. 2:7, man designed from creation is to be driven by the Spirit of God at work in his own spirit, so the spirit receive instructions from the Spirit and then prompt it to the soul which then send signals to the parts of the bodies to act it accordingly.
In our next class, we will discuss how the spirit of man receives instructions from the Holy Spirit. It’s my prayers for the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit to be with us all. Amen.
