3D VIEW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

DISAPPOINT- TO FAIL TO MEET THE EXPECTATION OF HOPE, DEFEATED IN EXPECTATION OR HOPE.

DISCOURAGE- THE TENDANCY TO PREVENT SOMETHING FROM HAPPENING BY MAKING IT MORE DIFFICULT OR UNPLEASANT.

DEFEAT- VICTORY OVER AN OPPONENT, OR TO CAUSE SOMETHING TO FAIL OR FALL SHORT OF REALIZATION.

ALL OF THESE RELATE TO FAILURE.

INTRO: JOHN 16:1

1: JESUS TELLS HIS DISCIPLES TO NOT BE OFFENDED

A) JESUS WANTS HIS DISCIPLES TO BE PREPARED FOR THE THINGS THAT LAY AHEAD.

B) THE DISCIPLES HAVE ENJOYED A CLOSE AND PERSONAL REALATIONSHIP WITH JESUS UP UNTIL HIS ARREST IN THE GARDEN.

C) HERE HE WANTS TO TELL THEM HE WILL BE LEAVING AND THEY SHOULD NOT BE SORROWFUL

D) OFFENDED MEANS IN A MORE COMMON SENSE DISAPPOINTED

POINT: THE SIGHT AND SCENE OF THE CRUCIFIXION WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD SHAKE THE DISCIPLES AND ALL THOSE WHO FOLLOWED JESUS ANS LOVED HIM. HE TELLS THE TWELVE DON’T LET DISAPPOINTMENT FILL YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS.

2: HE TELLS OF THEIR TRIALS TO COME

A) THEY SHALL BE PUT OUT OF THE SYNAGOUGES

B) DISASSOCIATED WITH ISRAEL

C) MEN WILL SEEK TO KILL THEM AND BELIEVE THEY ARE DOING GOD’S WORK BY DOING IT.

D) HE TELLS THEM THEY WILL DO THESE THINGS BECAUSE THEY REALLY DON’T KNOW GOD AT ALL.

POINT: DID YOU KNOW THAT GOD WANTS TO PREPARE US FOR EVERY TRIAL AND TEST WE GO THROUGH? HE TELLS US HOW TO COPE OR MANAGE THESE THINGS THROUGH HIS WORD. JESUS COMMUNICATED THESE THINGS TO HIS DISCIPLES, THESE THINGS WILL HAPPEN.

WHAT IS THE MOST POWERFUL THING YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR LIFE?

BODY: JESUS SPEAKS OF THE COMFORTER

1: THE COMFORTER

A) REPROVE THE WORLD OF SIN

B) REPROVE THE WORLD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

C) REPROVE THE WORLD OF JUDGEMENT

POINT: THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO UNBELIEVERS IS THAT OF CONVICTION. SPECIFICALLY, HE USES THEIR UNBELIEF TO PROVE THE GRAVITY OF SIN (V9) THE TRIUMPHANT WORK OF CHRIST TO PROVE THE AVAILABILTY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (V10) AND THE DEFEAT OF SATAN TO PROVE THE SOLEMN CERTAINTY OF JUDGMENT.

2: WHAT ELSE DOES HE DO?

A) V 13 GUIDE YOU IN ALL TRUTH

B) SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME

C) THE WILL OF GOD WILL NEVER LEAD YOU WHERE THE GRACE OF GOD WILL NOT PROTECT YOU.

D) HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF HIMSELF HE SHALL HEAR AND SPEAK THAT WHICH IS OF GOD

POINT: HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DREAM? YOU EVER HOPED FOR SOMETHING?

3: THREE FOLD PROCESS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

A) TO UNBELIEVERS IT IS CONVICTION

B) TO THE BELIEVER IT IS CONVINCING

C) AND ALSO CHANGE

POINT: THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THE SPIRIT WILL LEAD US INTO ALL TRUTH AND SHEW US THINGS TO COME. THE TIME IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU WERE LOST AND THE FEELING YOU HAD WHEN YOU REALIZED IT AND CAME TO KNOW CHRIST IS THE SPIRIT WORKING IN YOUR LIFE. CONVICTION AND CONVINCING AS WELL AS CHANGE WORK FOR THE LOST AS WELL AS THE SAVED.

CLOSING: JESUS SPEAKS OF SORROW

1: IT IS NOT ALWAYS JOY AND HAPPINESS

A) TIMES WILL COME WHEN YOU DEEP SORROW

B) TIMES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE ON THE EDGE OF COMPLETE DESTRUCTION

C) JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES OF THIS SORROW

POINT: THEY WOULD EXPERIENCE THIS TYPE OF PAIN AND SORROW AND JESUS WANTED THEM TO UNDERSTAND IT DOESN’T LAST FOREVER AND THERE IS ON WHO CAN HELP THE SPIRIT.
