Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit

I am going to continue to share some verses about the Holy Spirit. Those tonight will be particularly about the Holy Spirit and Jesus.

Through the Holy Spirit the prophets of the Old Testament foretold the coming of Jesus and many other things as well....
"Se we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God." 2 Peter 1:19-21

"As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow." 1 Peter 1:10-11

Jesus birth came about through an act of the Holy Spirit.
"The angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God." Luke 1:35

The Holy Spirit was present at Jesus' Baptism....
"After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Matthew 3:16 & 17

It is neat to read about the Holy Spirits work in Jesus earthly life but what is really cool is that the Holy Spirit is also at work in our life too.
