THE HOLY GHOST – TRICK OR TREAT?

Christian studies, activities 

In (Gen. 1:2) we find the first reference in the Bible of God’s Holy Spirit which moved across the waters. Then comes The Six Days of Creation, each day representing a thousand years (Psa. 84:10, 90:4: II Pet. 3:8). In the summer of ’06, a guy standing in a store line with me expressed his doubts of this Biblical account, citing it defies logic, and that he wasn’t there to witness its occurrence.

That brings some questions to my mind: if there’s no one in the forest and a tree fall, will it make a sound? By logic he refutes an occurrence that some believe transpired six thousands years ago as mentioned in the second scriptural citation above, because, in his words, “he wasn’t there.”

Moreover, if you say that you can’t prove there’s a God because you weren’t there during THE CREATION, what’s the basis for believing what happened millions of years ago (2 Ths. 2:11)? Experts? You mean the ones who say one week coffee is good for you, than the next week it’s bad, only to follow the next week with a good report? “It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes (Psa. 118:9).

Furthermore, if you never visit Australia does that mean it doesn’t exist? Likewise, if you haven’t seen God’s Spirit does that prove He doesn’t exist? Just as one basis for believing there’s an Australia is someone’s word, one basis for believing in God is God’s Word presented by a preacher (Rom. 10:14-17). Of course there is another way to know about Australia, and that’s by actually experiencing it. 

Joe. 2:28 states, “and afterward, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on My servants, both men andwomen, I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 32 And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls.” 

Additionally, if you plant an apple seed, can you get an ostrich? Sounds insane? Well, some people have no problem believing Man comes from apes! In fact, the extent to which intelligentsia has gone to promote this idea is even more insane. Here’s a thought – if we come from apes why do we still have apes; did they get left behind in the evolutionary process? Seriously, this is another example of how sometimes science, which purports to be about the advancement of Mankind, has been more of an inpediment to the truth (Gen. 1:11-12).

You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created (Rev. 4:11 New KJV).” As scientist divide molecules, atoms, and sub-atomic particles to find the origin of life, they should read: Jhn. 4:24, Acts 2, Rom. 8, I Cor. 2:6-16, Gal. 5:16-26, Eph. 4:25-32, Heb. 11:3, I Jhn. 4. While these verses should give the reader some background information about the Holy Spirit, please note (Eph. 6:17). The Holy Spirit is The Word Of God, and as “we study to show ourselves approved (II Tim. 2:15)” we become filled with The Spirit which helps us to recall the Word (Jhn. 14:26)!

    Interesting … it reminds me of the scripture … ” what is man that you are so mindful of him …” that is – why is God so mindful of man?

    Does anyone ever consider the point … that God is God whether anyone believes or not? If I never realized or came to a point of knowing God – does that at all diminish me or diminish God?
