“…And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters” Genesis 1:2

The Holy Spirit is a manifestation of the living God. He is the third one in unity with the Lord Jesus Christ and almighty God. They are one and in unity. It is very difficult for us humans to understand it by worldly thinking, but only by faith and through prayers, by feeling his presence into our everyday lives. “Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high…” Isaiah 32:15

The Spirit of the Lord is available for everyone who is faithful to God, who accepts by faith that He is almighty one and everlasting Spirit. “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2

In the New Testament, Jesus gave us hope “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” John 7:38 It means that as soon as we start believing in Jesus, every one of us receives the Holy Spirit. No one can receive the Spirit until Jesus is not yet glorified.

“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting…All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit…” Acts 2:2&4 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you” Acts 1:8 This shows us that the Spirit is also on our disposal. “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” Romans 8:9

Jesus gave us worthy instructions “…the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I send to you” John 14:26

All the things which God has prepared for those who love Him that are not seen and not even heard up to now, are “revealed …to us through His Spirit” and “…even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God” 1Corinthians 2:10-11

The promises by the Spirit are powerful and available also for us Macedonians. “In the last days, God says: I will pour out my Spirit on all people…” Acts 2:17

But we should have open and sound minds “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7, pure and open hearts to receive God’s offer as a free gift by our free will. “…Paul had made this final statement: “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your forefathers when He said through Isaiah prophet: Go to his people and say “You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.” For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them” Acts 28:25-27
