(3) The Spirit of ____________________ (John 14:17; 16:13);
(4) The Spirit of ____________________ (I Peter 4:14).

_______________________ (John 14:16; 16:7).
(2) The same word is translated ____________________________
referring to Christ in I John 2:1.

5. Another strong declaration of the personality of the Holy Spirit is the use of
(John 14:16-17; 16:13-15).
Vine notes: The personality of the Spirit is emphasized at the expense of strict grammatical procedure in John 14:26; 15:26; 16:8, 13, 14, where the emphatic pronoun ekeinos, He, is used of Him in the masculine, whereas the noun pneuma is neuter in Greek...

Mans Influence on the Holy Spirit
The influence of the Holy Spirit upon man is that of conviction, regeneration, and Christlikeness. Because the Holy Spirit is a person having desire and emotion, the response of man to His work has an effect upon the Holy Spirit.

5. Conclusion: When a person professes that these messages of the devil are
true, he, at the same time, pronounces the message of the Spirit as being false.
In essence, he calls the Holy Spirit a liar and places Him among the ranks of
the Father of lies.
6. Comments: Evans writes: ...after Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came, and
presented to every mans conscience evidence sufficient to prove the truth of
these [Christs] claims, the man who then refused to yield to Christs claims was
guilty of resisting, insulting, and that amounts to blaspheming the testimony of
the whole Godhead, of which the Spirit is the executive.
Halley in his Bible Handbook almost echoes with, But after His [Christs] work
was completed, and the Holy Spirit was come, then, in full knowledge, deliberate
and final rejection of the Holy Spirits offer of Christ would constitute the eternal
sin which hath never forgiveness.
Ironside concludes: These words were never intended to torment anxious souls
honestly desiring to know Christ, but they stand out as a blazing beacon warning
of the danger of persisting in the rejection of the Spirits testimony of Christ, until
the seared conscience no longer responds to the gospel message.
7. As a closing thought about the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, we should
compare Romans 1:28 with II Thess. 2:11-12:
a. The expression reprobate mind in Romans 1:28 means a mind that is
_____________________________________, and therefore hopelessly lost.
b. The difference between these two groups is that those during the Tribulation
Period are ______________ a strong delusion by God because of their
continual rejection; while people today are given over to their own
c. Ephesians 4:17-19 presents a class of people who are
8. _________________________ knows those who are given over.
