The Spirit as Wind- regeneration

Five things in the life of Jesus Christ that God wants for our lives: anointing of the Spirit, filled with the Spirit (empty of yourself 2ti 2:21, joh 13:6-11), led by the Spirit even into difficulty, gain strength and victory, resulting in power and grace by the Holy Spirit.

Starting point is new birth. Our goal is to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. Joh 3:1-5 Eze 36:24-28 Tit 3:5 Eph 5:26 The Spirit of God taking the Word of God in the believing soul to make a new creature. 

Five Old Testament figures of the Holy Spirit: water Joh 7:37-39 Eze 36:24-25, wind Job 30:22, fire (can comfort or consume anything that shouldn’t be in our lives) burning bush, oil (in the temple it illuminated the bread, the Spirit will always shed light on Jesus the Bread of Life, used in healing and restoring), dove (Noah and the flood).

Joh 3:5-8 The first work the Spirit of God must do in our life is anoint us by giving us new birth. Joh 3:16

Did Nicodemus receive Christ? Yes, with Joseph of Arimathea. Nicodemus contributed 100 weight of spices, the amount for a king. Joh 19:38-39

Where will you spend eternity?

This eternal member of the Godhead, has condescended to dwell in you, and has humbled Himself to be your helper, to wait for our invitation, to cleanse, to wash our feet when we give Him permission. “Let the Word of Christ richly indwell you.” Permit Him to do what He came to do.
