"Studies of the Spirit - In the Old Testament, Part 3" - John 16:12-15

You may watch this Newsletter in a video HERE.

John 16:12-15
"I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore, I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.


This final installment in studying the Spirit's work in the Old Testament will be enhanced by reviewing the list garnered from the previous two parts. From part one, we noted twelve attributes of the Spirit.

  1. Spirit as Creator: in the creation of heavens and earth as well as man.
  2. Spirit as sustainer: as in the case of Noah and also later in Joseph.
  3. Spirit as provider: as in case of Moses (artificers in the Tabernacle).
  4. Spirit as provider: as in case of Moses (artificers in the Tabernacle).
  5. Spirit transmission: Moses and the elders (laying on of hands on them and Joshua).
  6. Spirit intervention: Balaam.
  7. Spirit anointing: Saul and David.
  8. Spirit affirmation: David.
  9. Spirit transport: Obadiah and Elijah.
  10. Spirit succession: as in the case of Elisha.
  11. Spirit encouragement: Asa, Jehoshaphat.
  12. Spirit warring: Jehoshaphat.

In part two, we added to this list the following:

  1. Spirit as agent of final correction: 2 Chronicles 24.
  2. Spirit as instructor: Nehemiah 8,9.
  3. Spirit as voice of the prophets: Nehemiah 9.
  4. Spirit as giver of life (breath): Job 34.
  5. Spirit as ultimate appraiser of man's deeds: Psalms 104; Isaiah 11.
  6. Spirit as planner: Isaiah 30.
  7. Spirit as guarantor of Bible promises: Isaiah 34.
  8. Spirit as revealer of future events: Isaiah 42.
  9. Spirit as warrior: Isaiah 59.
  10. Spirit as person (He is good, He can be rebelled against, can be grieved, can withdraw): Isaiah 63.

As we wind through the remaining passages of Old Testament Scripture, the list will grow. As it grows, so our appreciation of the Spirit's activities will expand to the place where it will become apparent why the upper room was explosive with His power.

26: Ezekiel:

Last month's study ended with Isaiah, a book filled with Spirit references. Interestingly enough, the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations make no direct mention of the Spirit. So, our study begins with Ezekiel's second chapter where the Spirit entered him. Here, we see the Spirit as equipper and positioner.

Ezekiel 2:1-5:
And He said to me, "Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak to you." 2 Then the Spirit entered me when He spoke to me, and set me on my feet; and I heard Him who spoke to me. 3 And He said to me: "Son of man, I am sending you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against Me; they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. 4 For they are impudent and stubborn children. I am sending you to them, and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God.' 5 As for them, whether they hear or whether they refuse — for they are a rebellious house — yet they will know that a prophet has been among them.

The Holy Spirit will see to it that the person who yields to His leadership is in the right place, at the right time, to receive God's message. Even if it requires physically lifting someone and transporting them to another place, the Spirit is the facilitator of blessing.

In Ezekiel chapter three, we witness "Spirit positioning" again, this time transporting Ezekiel supernaturally to another location (Shades of Philip in the New Testament).

Ezekiel 3:12-15:
12 Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me a great thunderous voice: "Blessed is the glory of the Lord from His place!" 13 I also heard the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels beside them, and a great thunderous noise. 14 So the Spirit lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me. 15 Then I came to the captives at Tel Abib, who dwelt by the River Chebar; and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days. NKJV

John Lake recorded a time when he was supernaturally transported from South Africa to Wales. The Spirit assigned him to carry out deliverance on a demon possessed patient strapped down on a cot in a mental institution. He documented his travel experience with places and terrain (before air travel), and the accuracy of his path was affirmed later by a reconnaissance flight. When Lake arrived at the mental institution's doors, they opened for him, and so did the cell door where the patient was kept.

Many exploits just like Lake's have been carried out through the Spirit!

Once again, Ezekiel was lifted up when taken to Jerusalem in a vision (Remember, Ezekiel is in captivity hundreds of miles to the East of the holy city. There, he is to observe the abominations of the priests. The vision offered a panoramic view of the Temple and surrounding city, even though the Temple had been burned and destroyed. God's view of matters is entered into by the Spirit through eternal time frames.

Ezekiel must have had strong hair.

In the following passage, we see Ezekiel given specific words to be spoken. Enumerated by the Spirit, he was given a long list of infractions practiced by the priests (the Lord sees all-even the intent of man's heart).

Ezekiel 11:1-5:
Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the East Gate of the Lord's house, which faces eastward; and there at the door of the gate were twenty-five men, among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people. 2 And He said to me: "Son of man, these are the men who devise iniquity and give wicked counsel in this city, 3 who say, 'The time is not near to build houses; this city is the caldron, and we are the meat.' 4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man!" 5 Then the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me, and said to me, "Speak!

The prophet was taken by the Spirit into the profaned Temple area and was shown the root cause for Israel's captivity. This vision answered the question queried by the religious leaders in Babylon when they posed, "How did we wind up here?" (Nations around the globe should ask the same question. They may well be given the same answer.)

Ezekiel's message was one of eventual hope, for the Lord planned to put His Spirit into them and cause the people of promise to walk in His ways.

Ezekiel 36:27-29:
27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. 28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God. 29 I will deliver you from all your uncleanness.

Pentecost, in the book of Acts, signaled the fulfillment of this prophecy. When the power of the Spirit fell on those in the upper room, they were endowed with power beyond their wildest dreams. They knew they were purged and empowered, as the full force of all the Old Testament attributes of the Spirit were joined with His anointing power for the New Testament; they were drunk.

Today, true Israel desperately needs to understand what it means when it says, "You shall be My people and I will be your God." This is covenant! They need to work with the Holy Spirit to radically know the scope of, "not by power nor by might, but by My Spirit, says the Lord."

Turn now to Ezekiel 37.

In this next chapter (37), Ezekiel is confronted with the valley of dry bones. His faith is tested when asked to prophesy to the bone yard. It looked like an impossible task. Ezekiel knew God was the one who would honor his obedience, so he prophesied--and God did the rest! A great army rose from this decimated campground.

The Spirit did this in order to prove to Ezekiel His mighty power. Occasionally, the strongest of believers need a miracle moment with the Lord. (Are you facing an impossible task? The Spirit will do the impossible!)

Ezekiel 37:1-6:
The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. 2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed, they were very dry. 3 And He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?"

So, I answered, "O Lord God, You know." 4 Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: "Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord."

Skipping down to the next prophecy, we see the Lord proving His power connected to a promise.

Ezekiel 37:13-14:
"Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. 14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it," says the Lord.'"

A prophetic promise is given Ezekiel-God will bring Israel home and fill them with His Holy Spirit (The day of Pentecost was loaded with this prophetic fulfillment.).

Ezekiel 39:27-29:
"'When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, 28 then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer. 29 And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,' says the Lord God."

There is a continuance to God's people in this next passage:

Ezekiel 43:3-5:
The visions were like the vision which I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell on my face. 4 And the glory of the Lord came into the temple by way of the gate which faces toward the east. 5 The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Limitless, is the word which describes the actions of the Spirit. He knows no boundaries;He meets no challenge without victory; nothing escapes His view. He brings light and hope in the darkest of times and delivers the children of God into an ever-expanding landscape of spiritual growth. The same can be said of Daniel, our next exhibit.

27. Daniel

Enter now the land of Babylon and the prophecy of Daniel.

Daniel 4:8-9 and 18:
But at last Daniel came before me (his name is Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god; in him is the Spirit of the Holy God), and I told the dream before him, saying: 9 "Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, because I know that the Spirit of the Holy God is in you, and no secret troubles you, explain to me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and its interpretation." 18 "This dream I, King Nebuchadnezzar, have seen. Now you, Belteshazzar, declare its interpretation, since all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known to me the interpretation; but you are able, for the Spirit of the Holy God is in you." NKJV

Visions and dreams are specialties with the Spirit. A troubling dream came to Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel, through the Spirit, brought the interpretation--even though he was not told the dream's content. The king acknowledged that Daniel had the Spirit of the living God in him, for by no other method could Daniel have accomplished this. (The New Testament also teaches about dreams and visions, as God still speaks through these mechanisms today.)

Years later, when another ruler of Babylon encountered a floating hand writing on a wall during a ribald festivity, he was told to summons Daniel. The now famous, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN Persian Script virtually ended the reign of Belshazzar. (The Spirit always comes through for the people of God-after all, the New Testament cautions His people not to fear, for the Lord will give them what to say when brought before Kings and courts.)

Daniel 5:14-15:
I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.

Daniel's understanding of future generations was the product of being filled with the Spirit.

28. Joel:

Next, the prophet Joel has just one major reference to the Spirit, and it is the one quoted by Simon Peter in his great Pentecostal sermon.

Joel 2:28-29:
And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

He is still pouring!

Dreams and visions will increase in these last days and the baptism of the Spirit will be evidenced more and more as the people of God prepare for His coming. Joel's great promises for the last days should be studied more intently.

Bless the Lord!

29. Micah:

Listen now to Micah ask the question every believer must answer.

Micah 2:7:
You who are named the house of Jacob:
"Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted?"

The answer is, NO!


Ask if He is restricted in your life? Is He restricted in your place of worship? Is He restricted in your local community? Is He restricted in your state or province? Is He restricted in your nation?

After making this query, Micah confronts the false prophets who have said they heard from God when they did not. His answer to them is based on his anointing.

Micah 3:8:
But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord,
And of justice and might,
To declare to Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

Being equipped by the Spirit, Micah began a litany of sins and transgressions. His qualification for doing such was, "I am full of the power by the Spirit of the Lord." (Are you full of the Spirit? Pastor, are you full of power by the Spirit of the Lord?")

Micah peeled off layer upon layer of sinful behavior committed by his constituents. (Where are those kinds of prophets today? Who dares to say what Micah said?)

Micah 3:9-12:
Now hear this,
You heads of the house of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel,
Who abhor justice
And pervert all equity,
10 Who build up Zion with bloodshed
And Jerusalem with iniquity:
11 Her heads judge for a bribe,
Her priests teach for pay,
And her prophets divine for money.
Yet they lean on the Lord, and say,
"Is not the Lord among us?
No harm can come upon us."
12 Therefore because of you
Zion shall be plowed like a field,
Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins,
And the mountain of the temple
Like the bare hills of the forest.

Nations and their citizenry must confront the truth and realize there is a living God they are dealing with.

(Located in Micah's message is an assertion which calls for a question, "Does verse 11 apply today?")

30. Haggai:

Turn now to Haggai and hear His words of comfort prompted by the Spirit.

Upon those rebuilding the Temple, after the Babylonian captivity, Haggai spoke words of encouragement--in a time much like our own. (When the domestic scene looks gloomy, there is a word which brings Peace, "My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!")

Haggai 2:3-9:
'Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing? 4 Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says the Lord; 'and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,' says the Lord, 'and work; for I am with you,' says the Lord of hosts. 5 'According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!'

6 "For thus says the Lord of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the Lord of hosts. 8 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the Lord of hosts. 9 'The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the Lord of hosts. 'And in this place, I will give peace,' says the Lord of hosts."

When Jesus eventually walked into the Temple Zerubbabel was rebuilding, greater glory entered the Temple and fulfilled, "The glory of the latter Temple shall be greater than the former."

Ah, the Spirit knows!

(Are you burdened down with great cares and you don't know where to turn? The Spirit knows! Are you facing a crisis so large there seems no way out? The Spirit knows!)

31. Zechariah:

Reach into Zechariah now for one of the most famous passages in Scripture and remember its location and the occasion that prompted it.

Zechariah 4:2-14:
So, I said, "I am looking, and there is a lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps. 3 Two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left." 4 So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, "What are these, my lord?"

5 Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these are?"

And I said, "No, my lord."

6 So he answered and said to me:

"This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:
'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,'
Says the Lord of hosts.
7 'Who are you, O great mountain?
Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!
And he shall bring forth the capstone
With shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"'"

8 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying:

9 "The hands of Zerubbabel
Have laid the foundation of this temple;
His hands shall also finish it.
Then you will know
That the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you.

10 For who has despised the day of small things?
For these seven rejoice to see
The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.
They are the eyes of the Lord,
Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth."

11 Then I answered and said to him,
"What are these two olive trees ― at the right of the lampstand and at its left?" 12 And I further answered and said to him, "What are these two olive branches that drip into the receptacles of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?"

13 Then he answered me and said, "Do you not know what these are?"

And I said, "No, my lord."

14 So he said, "These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth."

Oh, Saint of God, the Spirit can pull things off you cannot even imagine. When the chief architect of the rebuilding of the Temple needed encouragement, it came. So, will yours! Pinpoint accuracy is the method of the Spirit when He asked Zerubbabel what mountain of events or discouragement can stand before him when the Spirit is on the scene? (Is He slack today? Are your mountains more powerful than Mark 11?)

Zechariah's vision involved a plumb line, the instrument which assures the straightness of a wall or the starting point for a construction site. (However, in this case, it is the determinate of how straight a citizenry is behaving. [How straight is your church? How straight is your fellowship?])

The lampstand still calls to the anointed ones and it is calling today more than ever!

In the next verse, the Spirit plies one of the strongest prophetic words spoken about the ministry of Jesus.

Zechariah 6:8-13:
"See, those who go toward the north country have given rest to My Spirit in the north country."

9 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 10 "Receive the gift from the captives ― from Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah, who have come from Babylon ― and go the same day and enter the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah. 11 Take the silver and gold, make an elaborate crown, and set it on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12 Then speak to him, saying, 'Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying:
"Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place He shall branch out,
And He shall build the temple of the Lord;
13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.
He shall bear the glory,
And shall sit and rule on His throne;
So, He shall be a priest on His throne,
And the counsel of peace shall be between them both."'

Zechariah prophesied the King-Priest, Jesus, will change the course of history and in these verses, it is spelled out for all to hear. (Crown Him in your heart and Crown Him in your family---it is the correct word for now!)

Listen as Zechariah explains the reason for Israel and Judah's distresses.

Zechariah 7:8-12:
Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, 9 "Thus says the Lord of hosts:
'Execute true justice,
Show mercy and compassion
Everyone to his brother.
10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless,
The alien or the poor.
Let none of you plan evil in his heart
Against his brother.'

11 But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. 12 Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus, great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.

How often have we seen an anointed people transform themselves into pupils of wrath? In this generation, as social problems bear down on the nations, could it be because they stopped their ears from hearing the Spirit? Could it be they refused, shrugged, stopped and made their hearts like flint? God help us all!

Zechariah pointed to Jesus and prophesied the result of Israel's resistance had caused them to crucify the Lord of Glory.

Zechariah 12:10:
"And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11

32. Malachi:

Next, turn to Malachi.

In the order of the Bible, Malachi brings into play the last reference to the Spirit in the Old Testament. However, Malachi is not last, because he ministered during the time of Nehemiah. When Nehemiah returned to Persia for fourteen years, after overseeing the restructuring of the wall around Jerusalem, he learned of Malachi's preaching. Nehemiah liked what he heard and how he preached about the moral lapses of those living in Jerusalem.

The prevalence of divorce and unfaithfulness caused him to re-assert the reason God set up marriage between one man and one woman. He emphasized the oneness factor of such union, and with it the power of fidelity.

Hear now Malachi's treatise:

Malachi 2:14-15:
Yet she is your companion
And your wife by covenant.
15 But did He not make them one,
Having a remnant of the Spirit?
And why one?
He seeks godly offspring.
Therefore, take heed to your spirit,
And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.

Malachi poses an issue that needs to be heeded today, "Take heed to your spirit." What is needed today is a personal check-up on how our spirit responds to the Holy Spirit. Are we listening to His voice and obeying His prompting? During these perilous times, He may well be our only source of direction.

33. Closing:

In closing, we now can add to the previous list of the attributes of the Spirit in the Old Testament. Looking back to the beginning of this section and numbers 1-22, we add:

  1. Spirit as equipper and positioner: Ezekiel 2.
  2. Spirit as facilitator of blessings: Ezekiel 3.
  3. Spirit as compeller of prophetic words: Ezekiel 11.
  4. Spirit as enabler: Ezekiel 36.
  5. Spirit as overcomer of the impossible: Ezekiel 37.
  6. Spirit as insurer of performance: Ezekiel 37.
  7. Spirit as dream and vision interpreter: Daniel 4.
  8. Spirit as sustainer of His people: Daniel 4.
  9. Spirit as endower: Joel 2.
  10. Spirit as companion: Haggai2.
  11. Spirit as administrator of grace and supplication: Zechariah 7.
  12. Spirit as issuer of blessing for those who follow His direction: Malachi 2

This study has been a personal blessing to me and I pray for you as well. Next month, we begin the study of the Spirit in the New Testament.

Until next month,

Dr. Cosby R. Oliver, PhD.

Greetings from Botswana!

We are fine, just wearied a bit from this Covid 19 restrictions. Botswana has had very few cases and just 1 death, we are very thankful for that. However despite never having more than 25 active cases our economy, schools, churches were all shuttered. We are now entering the fourth Sunday where church is open but with a 50 person limit, and in the villages children are not allowed, in fact anyone under 18 cannot go to church. We hope these bans will soon be lifted and we can return to normal. Currently we only have 6 active Covid cases in the country. I think the concern is South Africa, our border nation where over 50,000 infections and growing.

So we are back actively pursuing completion of orphan project and to get the farm moving toward productivity as complete lock down has been lifted, now we can travel in our zone without permits.

At the orphan center an electrician is currently out wiring the buildings and should finish next week. Then our plan is to put solar in all houses, two, plus director's house, care-giver's house, security and tool buildings. Just a very small system for them. We have the funds for the two Orphan houses but not for the director's house and others. This electrical supply is one of the key factors to getting licensing. This has long been delayed as we were cheated by former contractor and still working on getting those funds returned.

If we can do solar all at once it will save us about $1,000. We need about $7,000 more to do them all at once.

We are about to launch a YouTube channel with teachings on it called Branch Ministries International. I started by doing a series on principles of prayer, another series on the book of 1 Corinthians and now have started a series on discipleship. We hope to launch this next weekend as we are having someone redo our website so we can launch both at same time. Our plan is to put out 3-4 teachings a week to be a blessing to those seeking God and His ways.

Our bible school is restarting next Monday. Unfortunately with Covid protocols and distancing we can only fit 13 students in a room and we have 20 students who wish to come so we are working on a plan to accommodate them maybe running different times.

At the farm we are moving our first cows there next week, and we are in talks about putting in a bore hole to start the process of irrigation. Quotes for a well seem to be around $4000 but we have the money for that and to get irrigation underway. We have 800 meters of fencing to just button up the farm, and some guys working on that now.

We are now entering winter, a very dry season. We were going to draw from riverbed directly but seems this should be secondary plan, not best option once farm running. It should help us help the needy far more and bring in needed funds for operations at orphan center.

The land you helped us buy in village of Tobane, we should get title deed by end July. This Covid thing closed land board, and sent all their timetables way back. We are excited to get this done and re-establish the church there.

I have floated an idea by local pastors of working together to get churches in every village of Botswana. So far this has been met with initial excitement, a way for us to unify around a common cause without competition. We believe this can be done and believe have plan to do it. Right now many villages are abandoned to the cults and ancestral worship.

We have plans for several outreaches pending, waiting for restrictions to lift so people can gather- these are in four villages- this is Mary and I, not pastors fellowship yet.

Our after school sports program on hold for now, and in school as children not allowed to gather and trying to reach kids with message with masks on in school very difficult for our peer trainers.

I have found the spiritual attack on my mind has been extreme of late. I believe it has something to do with us entering new areas of influence - however victory is ours!

We miss you and wish we could spend more time in your presence, but please know that your lives have helped us very much. Would love to chat, but if not suitable we can do email.
