The Intercession Of The Holy Spirit
What The Bible Says About The Intercession Of The Holy Spirit:
-"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is,because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:26-28)
The Purpose Of The Holy Spirit:
-The Lord Jesus Christ told the twelve apostles that He needed to depart from the world so that the Advocate could come, who is the Holy Spirit (John 16:6-8). If Jesus never left physically, then the Spirit could not come to fulfill His designated purposes on earth. What did the Holy Spirit do for the apostles? He guided the twelve disciples to all Truth (John 16:13). Not only did the Spirit of God give the first century Christians all of the necessary revelation for learning about God's divine character, but He also was a source spiritual strength during the vicissitudes of life (John 14:16; 26). Today, He continues to fulfill the same tasks that He was originally appointed for. The Holy Spirit works by helping true members of the church persevere daily through all sorts of sinful temptations. He leads searching people to the Truth. The Spirit combats evil through the spread of the Gospel Message, which is His fighting gear (Ephesians 6:10-18; Hebrews 4:12). The Lord Jesus Christ is eternally present though the power of the Holy Spirit. Both members of the Holy Trinity intercede on our behalf in prayer, for they know what we really need. They are there for us when we are in need. The Godhead is constantly there to assist us in our daily lives. When we humbly submit to the infinite grace of God, our minds can overcome the troubling moments presented to us. Only through God can we learn to obtain a mental state of tranquility that endures through our moments of grief and sorrow. Hence, this is the reason that "all things work together for the good of those who love God" (Romans 8:28). Our purpose in this life is to know, love, and serve God in this world so that we may be eternally present with Him for eternity in heaven. Fulfilling these spiritual stipulations leads our hearts to a peace that is beyond understanding.
