Quotes From "The Holy Spirit"

"Holiness is nothing but the implanting, writing and living out the gospel in our souls"
"Before the work of grace the heart is ‘stony.’ It can do no more than a stone can do to please God."
"When the Holy Spirit does his work of regeneration in the hearts of men he does not come on them with great powerful feelings and emotions which cannot be resisted. He does not possess men as evil spirits take possession of their victims."
"But the Spirit was not limited to doing surprising and extraordinary things. He was present in the Old Testament period in giving civil rule and government ... moral virtues ... physical strength ... and intellectual abilities."
"Clearly the Holy Spirit is not merely a quality to be found in the divine nature … He is a holy intelligent person."
"But of that day and hour no one knows neither the angels in heaven nor the Son but only the Father.’ We are not to think that the Son of God as he is God did not know the day or hour but only that his human nature did not know it because his divine nature had not chosen to reveal it to his human nature."
