    Baptism of the Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts. It is pretty clear that the promise of the baptism or immersion with the Holy Spirit was fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost, and on subsequent occasions when people received the Holy Spirit. Let's look at the pattern in the Book of Acts as people receive the Spirit.   In the first book, Theophilus, I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught until the day he was taken up, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them by many proofs after he had suffered, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God.

    with the Holy Spirit (Acts ), and this is specifically elucidated as “power from on high” to witness (Luke ; Acts ). When the Spirit comes on the day of Pente-cost, Peter explains the gift in terms of the promise in Joel —the locus classi-cus of the Old Testament for the expectation of an outpouring of the Spirit as the. Books that foster growth in relationship to the Holy Spirit and spiritual gifts Score A book’s total score is based on multiple factors, including the number of people who have voted for it and how highly those voters ranked the book.

    4 We ourselves will continue to devote ourselves to prayer and to the service of the word.'. 5 The whole assembly approved of this proposal and elected Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, together with Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.. 6 They presented these to the apostles, and after prayer they laid their hands on them.   There is a third element of the book of Acts which cannot be ignored. Luke is a theologian and his book is telling the reader about the work of God in the world. He has wide variety of theological interests, such as how God’s plan is unfolding in history, or the movement of the Holy Spirit as the gospel moves into new areas of the world.

This is a very detailed commentary for the Book of Acts. It really helps to understand why the church of the Book of Acts it is actually what the church today needs to be: less agendas and studied words and more of the Word backed up with powerful deeds through the Holy is what the people in the world is desperately needing these days/5(37).

The Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts. J Daniel L. Segraves, Teacher [1] Just before His ascension, Jesus gathered His apostles and commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now” (Acts ).

Acts of the Holy Spirit is C. Peter Wagner's complete commentary on the book of Acts. As the gospel began to spread to the world, the Early Church was confronted with spiritual and cultural barriers-strongholds-it had to overcome/5.

The Holy Spirit can scarcely be said to have been dismissed from the book of Acts at any point. “The Holy Spirit appears prominently in Acts, so much so that the book has been called ‘the Gospel of the Holy Spirit.'”.

The book begins with the ascension of Jesus into heaven (Acts ), quickly followed by the empowering of the church through the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2).

The early church experienced dramatic growth but also attracted horrific persecu- tion. Acts provides a record of the time between the Gospel narratives and the apostolic Size: 1MB. This chronicle of the early church, written by a physician named Luke, gives special focus to the power and working of the Holy Spirit in a measure never equaled in any other book of the Bible.

What this means is that, if you really want to learn about the Holy Spirit. The book picks up where the Gospels (four accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry) leave off. The book of Acts begins with the ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit, and goes on to show how the apostles preached Christ to the world.

Peter and Paul are. The book of Acts quickly reveals the power and work of the Holy Spirit in and through believers is for all believers. This power and witness begins on the Day of Pentecost where the Holy Spirit will fill one hundred and twenty believers gathered in one place.

in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.

4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[ a] as the Spirit enabled them. The Holy Spirit is personal. He convinces of sin, teaches the truth, speaks, declares things that are to come, and so on.

These texts leave no doubt as to the personhood of the Holy Spirit. How to “Pour Out” a Person. One last obstacle for some who deny the personhood of the Holy Spirit is found in Acts   Baptism and the Holy Spirit in Samaria, Acts 8 The second incident of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is in Acts chapter eight.

After the martyrdom of Stephen the disciples scatter from Jerusalem. Deacon Philip goes down to Samaria, preached Christ and preforms miracles (Acts ). The Holy Spirit in Acts: The Filling of the Holy Spirit The book of Acts illustrates that the Holy Spirit works his will by filling believers with His presence and power.

Christians should therefore seek to be filled with the Spirit on a continual basis. The Holy S pirit is the 3rd person of the Blessed Trinity, and the one most active in the world today. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit created the world (Genesis ), led Jesus into the desert (Matthew ), comes to us at Confirmation (Acts ), and intercedes for us in sighs that we cannot understand (Romans ).Always remember that The Church teaches that The Holy Spirit is a.

The Holy Spirit is a topic of much current interest among religious people. Some folks believe they have Holy Spirit baptism, miracles, tongues, or direct guidance of the Holy Spirit today.

Some preachers making such claims have become fabulously famous and wealthy. It is the sacrament of Myron, for example, that attests to and confirms the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in our churches. The book of Acts properly falls between the four gospels and the epistles; it forms a logical link between our Lord's life as described in the gospels, and the later development of Christian theology and ethics, as reflected in the pauline and catholic epistles.

It is impossible to jump. It is difficult to name another Catholic doctrine of as hallowed antiquity as the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit that is subject to such benign neglect. Like most Catholics born aroundI learned their names by rote: “wis-dom, un-derstanding, coun-sel, fort-itude, know-ledge, pie-ety, and fear of the Lord!” Sadly, though, it was all my.

We need to acknowledge the presence of the Holy Spirit and appropriate His power. He is the source of an overflowing life in Christ. ActsThe Promise of the Father It happened on the day of Pentecost – a Jewish festival on 50th day after Passover, also.

We see the Holy Spirit alive in various ways in the Church today. As outlined earlier in this Chapter, the Holy Spirit is the one teaching through the bishops, sanctifying us through prayer and the sacraments, and spreading the Good News through the apostolic works of the Church.

CHAPTER 1 *. The Promise of the Spirit. 1 In the first book, a Theophilus, I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught 2 until the day he was taken up, after giving instructions through the holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. b 3 He presented himself alive to them by many proofs after he had suffered, appearing to them during forty days * and speaking about the kingdom of God.

c 4. Finally, the references to the Holy Spirit at the very beginning and end of Acts (; ) have a special significance with regard to the role that the Holy Spirit plays in the book. Richard Bauckham has shown that three of the Gospels employ a literary device of mentioning toward the beginning and the end of each book the primary witness.

In the book of Acts, we see that the Holy Spirit brought equality between young and old, between men and women, between rich and poor, and between Jews and Gentiles (cf.

Gal. ). And church history has shown that time and time again, when there is a fresh move of the Holy Spirit, old prejudices are forgotten, caste systems are ignored, and.The Holy Spirit plays a key role in the Acts of the Apostles, leading to the use of the titles "Book of the Holy Spirit" or the "Acts of the Holy Spirit" for that book of the New Testament.

Of the about seventy occurrences of the word pneuma (πνεῦμα) in Acts, fifty five refer to the Holy Spirit.Holy Spirit, in Christian belief, the third person of the Trinity.

As mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles, outpourings of the Holy Spirit can include healing, prophecy, exorcism, and speaking in tongues.
