OPPORTUNITY(:7)

Explanation:(:7)

:7—“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice,”

“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:”

The very Spirit of the Living God calls out to you from the record of the Scriptures.

He compelled those men of God to write what they wrote, so that even though they themselves were fallible creatures, they in-fallibly wrote God’s truth. Scripture/The Bible is the written record of God’s Holy Spirit, who indwells those of us who are saved by faith in Christ.

His ministry entails reminding us of all that Jesus has spoken(Jn. 14:26) & all that God has determined, said & revealed(Jn. 16:13-15). Those things pertinent to & which directly involve mankind.

The Holy Spirit has come to convict the world of sin, righteousness & judgment(Jn. 16:8-11)....Sin—because they do not believe in Jesus as Christ. Righteousness—because Jesus rose from the dead & ascended to the Father. Judgment—because the ruler of this world is judged.
