The Holy Spirit is the blessed Spirit, a member of the GODHEAD, who takes up residence in Christian hearts in consequence of their being sons of God (Galatians 4:6), and in fulfillment of the apostolic promise of such an indwelling to all believers who will repent and be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38f), and is thus identifiable as the “Holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).

GOD’S PROVIDENTIAL CARE FOR HIS CHILDREN – Matthew 10

God so loved the WORLD that he gave his only Son – Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16

DO NOT QUENCH THE SPIRIT – 1 Thessalonians 5

The word for “quench” was used of putting out a fire, and the thought is that the child of God should not put out the sacred fire within.

THE WITNESS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT – Romans 8

The Holy Spirit witnesses as to the terms of salvation; the saved person’s spirit witnesses to the fact that he has complied with the terms; and, in that instance, there are two witnesses to the man’s salvation.
