Pentecost 2022, June 5, 2022
John 7:37-39 "Not yet given" shows that although his Holy Spirit has always existed, there's a part of God that is different after Christ returned to Heaven and was glorified (turned back to spirit).
Proves that The Holy Ghost and The Holy Spirit is not the same.
Although, God has only one spirit, He has different parts just like a human has different parts. The Holy Ghost is the part of God that died on the cross, but is alive, thus the term "ghost". Not all of God died. Only the Christ/human part.
It's extremely important that we recognize this difference, especially at Pentecost, so that we understand that there is more than one resurrection, and that no one could be saved by the blood of goats, foreskin circumcision, etc.
Both Moses and Samson had The Holy Spirit but weren't saved. They must be resurrected in the 2nd resurrection.
The Holy Spirit has always existed, everywhere. But saving human souls required the death and resurrection of Jesus. Until that event, no one was truly saved.
John 14:4-28 "will give" The Holy Ghost.
Wasn't given before Christ died.
The Holy Ghost is salvation, and also empowerment.
Only after the outpouring of The Holy Ghost at the 6th seal (Rev. 6 and Joel 2-3, the final year of The Great Tribulation), will true salvation be widespread/common.
Faith alone doesn't save, nor love alone, mercy alone, the New Covenant alone, knowledge alone, etc, but rather, all of these things must be accompanied by repentance, which isn't going to occur widespread until the final year of The Great Tribulation.
