GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT (cont.)

The Holy Spirit's Ministry to Israel

God chose Israel as a people through which He could reveal Himself and fulfill His master plan in the world.  The Messiah came through Israel to redeem man from his sin.  It was Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, from which God chose the Gospel message to be spread throughout the world.  The ministry of the Holy Spirit to Israel is evident from the very beginning of the nation.  During Old Testament times, the Holy Spirit moved in the lives of the people.  He came upon the leaders of Israel.


THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME UPON ISRAEL’S PLACES OF WORSHIP

Then the cloud covered the Tabernacle and the glory of the Lord filled. (Exodus 40:34 LB)

And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place,
that the cloud filled the house of the Lord. (I Kings 8:10 NKJ)

THE HOLY SPIRIT GUIDED THEM TO THE PROMISED LAND

You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them, and did not withhold
Your manna from their mouth, and gave them water for their thirst. 
Forty years You sustained them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing;
Their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell. (Nehemiah 9:20-21 NKJ)

THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL COME UPON ISRAEL DURING THE TRIBULATION

The Tribulation is a time of great trouble on the earth.  God will place a special mark of protection upon Israel. 

Then I saw a second angel coming up from the east (the rising of the sun)
and carrying the seal of the living God.  And with a loud voice
he called out to the four angels who had been given authority and power
to injure earth and sea,  Saying, Harm neither the earth nor the sea nor the
trees until we have sealed the bond servants of our God upon
their foreheads.  And [then] I heard how many were sealed (marked) out of
every tribe of the sons of Israel: there were 144,000. (Revelation 7:2-4)

THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL COME UPON ISRAEL DURING THE MILLENNIUM

The Millennium is a thousand years of peace, during which Jesus will reign upon the earth.

Then I will pour out the Spirit of grace and prayer on all the people of Jerusalem,
and they will look on Him they pierced, and
mourn for Him as for an only son, and grieve bitterly for Him
as for an oldest child who died. (Zechariah 12:10)
