The Work of the Spirit
Who is the Holy Spirit and what is the nature of his work? Justin Holcomb joins the panel for this new series as the hosts begin with a discussion of the purpose of signs and wonders throughout redemptive history. Should we expect to see spectacular miracles or does the Spirit work primarily through providence in our time? Why does Jesus say that it’s a wicked generation that seeks after signs and wonders? That’s the focus of this edition of White Horse Inn.
Acts 2 & The Day of Pentecost
Was the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost a one-time event, or a picture of what our own churches should look like? On this program the hosts will discuss the significance of Pentecost in the scope of redemptive history and will explore the controversial subject of what it means to speak in “other tongues.” As we’ll see, the main focus of Acts 2 is that the disciples were empowered by the Spirit with boldness and supernatural insight to proclaim Christ as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
What does it mean to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, and how does it differ from traditional water baptism? Should baptized Christians look for a second blessing? The hosts will discuss this issue as it appears in various New Testament texts, as well as its implications for the ministry of the church in our own day.
Gifts of the Spirit
What are the gifts and fruit of the Spirit? Many today emphasize miraculous and immediate manifestations of the Spirit, and sometimes as a result Christians end up ignoring texts which outline the Spirit’s slow and steady work in our lives through providence. On this program the hosts will discuss the various gifts of the Spirit and will distinguish between miraculous gifts of the apostolic era and the providential gifts which continue today.
