WE ALL KNOW THAT JESUS IS A MEMBER OF T TRINITY. HE IS 100% T DIVINE SON OF GOD & HE IS ALSO 100% T SON OF MAN. THAT MIGHT BE HARD TO UNDERSTAND, BUT TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE, LIKE HE WAS 1/2 GOD & 1/2 MAN, WOULD TELL US THAT HE DID T WORKS HE DID BECAUSE HE WAS GOD. BUT THAT'S NOT TRUE! JESUS SET ASIDE ALL HIS DEITY {& ALL HIS POWER} TO BECOME A MAN. T ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN T MAN JESUS & YOU & I, IS THAT JESUS NEVER SINNED, HE NEVER HAD A SIN NATURAL, BECAUSE HE WAS BORN FROM A VIRGIN, & BECAUSE OF THAT HE BECAME OUR SAVIOUR.

NOW I'M TALKING ABOUT HIS HUMANITY, NOT HIS DEITY. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US & HIS DEITY. WE ARE NOT GOD, WE DID NOT NOR CAN NOT CREATE T WORLD.  BUT JC, AS T SON OF MAN, DEPENDED ON T HS WHILE HE WAS ON T EARTH. THAT'S A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR US TO FOLLOW.

I. T HS WAS EVEN PRESENT AT JESUS' BIRTH. MAT 1:18‑20

          A. T HS WAS EVEN AT WORK IN JESUS' LIFE BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN.

               1. IN OUR LIVES I THINK THAT T HS IS AT WORK IN OUR LIVES EVEN BEFORE WE WE'RE BORN. (EPH 1:4) SAYS, According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

               2. GOD'S BEGUN A WORK IN US BEFORE T FOUNDATION OF T WORLD.

          B. JESUS' BIRTH WAS PROPHESIED SOME 700 YEARS BEFORE HE WAS BORN. (ISA 7:14) SAYS, Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

II. T HS WAS PRESENT WHEN JESUS WAS BAPTIZED.  MAT 3:16

          A. T DOVE IS A SYMBOL OF T HS.   NOWHERE IN T KJV DOES IT SAY THAT IT WAS A DOVE THAT DESCENDED ON JESUS, & ONLY ONCE IN T NIV DOES IT SAY THAT `T HS DESCENDED ON JESUS AS A DOVE.'

               1. IT ALMOST ALWAYS SAYS, `T HS DESCENDED LIKE A DOVE.'

               2. (LUK 3:22) SAYS, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him,

                   a. IT NEVER SAYS IT WAS A DOVE.

                   b. ? WHY WOULD T HS TAKE ON T BODILY SHAPE OF

DOVE?

                   c. I THINK IT WAS TO SHOW US HIS GENTLENESS. THERE ARE OTHER SYMBOLS OF T HS IN T WORD OF GOD; LIKE, OIL, WINE, RAIN, WATER, RIVER, WIND, FIRE, & OTHERS.

                   d. BUT T DOVE SHOWS US HIS GENTLENESS.

          B. MAT 3:17 HERE WE SEE GOD'S APPROVAL OF HIS SON. APPROVAL OF HIS BAPTISM, APPROVAL OF T HS DESCENDING ON JESUS.

               1. HERE'S A QUESTION FOR YOU, DID JESUS NEED TO BE BAPTIZED IN WATER OR DID HE DO IT TO BE AN EXAMPLE FOR US SO THAT EVERYONE WOULD SEE THAT WE HAVE PASSED FROM DEATH TO LIFE?

                   a. I THINK THAT THERE IS MORE TO IT THAN JUST AN OUTWARD EXPRESSION OF AN INWARD WORK. [ISRAEL, RED SEA]

III. T HS IN JESUS' MINISTRY.  MARK 1:12

          A. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT JESUS WAS LEAD BY T SPIRIT OF GOD INTO EVIL. I FELL IT WAS MORE OF A TEST OF OBEDIENCE.

               1. OUR OBEDIENCE IS TESTED MANY TIMES. IF OUR OBEDIENCE IS TESTED THAN SO WAS T LORD'S.

               2. (HEB 4:15) For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as {we are, yet} without sin.

                   a. OUR POINT IS THAT JESUS WAS LEAD BY T HS.

          B. T POWER OF JESUS' MINISTRY WAS ATTRIBUTED TO T HS. LUK 4:14

               1. AFTER 40 DAYS OF BEING TEMPTED, HE RETURNED IN T POWER OF T SPIRIT.

               2. DURING THIS TIME OF TEMPTATION, T HS HELPED HIM OVERCOME T TEMPTATIONS & TO RESIST T DEVIL.

                   a. YOU MIGHT BE ASKING, HOW DO I KNOW THAT T HS HELPED HIM?

                   b. ROM 8:1‑2  PAUL SAID IF WE HAVE T SPIRIT OF LIFE, {T HS}, THEN WE ARE FREED FROM T LAW OF SIN & DEATH. T HS GIVES US POWER OVER SIN.

          C. LUKE 4:18  EVEN IN JESUS' PREACHING T HS WAS INVOLVED.

               1. HE ANOINTED JESUS TO PREACH, HE SENT HIM TO HEAL T BROKENHEARTED, TO PREACH DELIVERANCE TO T CAPTIVES, T RECOVERING OF SIGHT TO T BLIND, & TO SET AT LIBERTY THEM THAT ARE BRUISED.

               2. & THAT'S WHAT T HS WANTS US TO DO, SHARING JESUS {PREACHING}, HEALING T BROKENHEARTED, SETTING T CAPTIVES FREE.

IV. HEB 9:14 EVEN AT JESUS' CRUCIFIXION T HS WAS INVOLVED.

          A. T HS HELPED HIM TO SUBMIT TO GOD & CHRIST WAS OBEDIENT TO T CROSS.

          B. PHI 2:8

V. ROM 8:11 WHO IS T SPIRIT THAT DWELLS IN YOU?  [HS]

          A. IT'S THAT SAME SPIRIT THAT WHO RAISED UP CHRIST FROM T DEAD.

          B. & THAT SAME SPIRIT SHALL QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES. T HS IS DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN T RESURRECTION OF JESUS.

VI. EVEN IN T ASCENSION OF JESUS T HS WAS THERE WORKING. YOU COULD

SAY THAT T HS TRANSPORTED HIM INTO HEAVEN.

          A. (ACT 1:11) SAYS, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

          B. ACTS 4:13‑18

               1. IT'S T SAME SPIRIT THAT TRANSPORTED JESUS INTO HEAVEN, WILL ALSO AT T LAST TRUMP, CATCH US AWAY & SO SHALL WE EVER BE W/ T LORD.

               2. AS T LORD JC DEPENDED ON T HS, SO SHOULD WE. AS T SPIRIT ANOINTED JESUS TO SPEAK, HE WILL ANOINT US TO SPEAK & TO WITNESS. AS T HS HELPED JESUS TO OVERCOME TEMPTATION, HE WILL HELP US OVERCOME. AS T HS EMPOWERED JESUS TO DO T WORK OF T FATHER, HE WILL ALSO ANOINT US TO DO T WORK OF T FATHER.

               3. IF JESUS DEPENDED ON T HS SO MUCH, WE ALSO NEED TO DEPEND ON T HS.

                   a. I'LL END W/ THIS LAST SCRIPTURE, (ZEC 4:6) Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This {is} the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, THIS IS T WORD OF T LORD UNTO T TABERNACLE FAMILY CHURCH, IT'S Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.  (KJV)
