The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit by George Hawtin. Many years ago during a long season of prayer I was brought into deep meditation concerning the Holy Spirit. As I waited before the Lord, my mind was flooded in quick succession with a whole series of themes concerning that blessed divine person whom our Lord Jesus called the Holy Spirit. As heading after heading and theme after theme swept into my mind, I wrote them down lest they should be forgotten, and, when at last the Spirit ceased to speak, I knew I possessed in skeleton form material enough for a large and informative book concerning the person and work of the Holy Spirit. As time went by, the book was written, though only parts of it were ever published; but it may be that He who in wisdom reserved the best wine for the end of the feast has also reserved these things for that true ecclesia, which is now rising to form a fixed abode for God through the Spirit. Should it be pleasing to the Lord of all wis-dom and understanding, it will be our joy to write of this heav-enly person whose divine commission it is to bring to fullness every blessing of Christ in the life of the believer.
The Holy Spirit
It will be my purpose in writing these truths to set forth in awe and simplicity the things of the Spirit, but I shall not at-tempt to settle any of those vain arguments of men, which pre-tend to explain even the very appearance of the Godhead. All such carnal debate is an abomination to me and a wretched de-basing of things that are higher than the heavens. Never have these carnal debaters succeeded in explaining their views, nor have their views drawn any man closer to God. If it pleased the wisdom of our Lord to reveal Himself to Moses as a fire, to Elijah as a still small voice, to Abraham as three men, to Gide-on as an angel, and to Thomas as “my Lord and my God”, then learn from this with grace and wisdom all that the Spirit teach-es that our enquiring minds may open to greater understanding as a flower opens to the sun. Seek not to conform to childish notions and doctrines of men as though we could understand with our infant minds the greatness of the mystery of God. No pride of understanding fills my soul, but rather a desire to seal my lips in silence when I read the words of holy inspiration, “Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Tim. 3:16
