THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
IN JESUS CHRIST.
290.010.000 Torrey: p287, T:I
Topic 10:How the Holy Spirit
Worked in Jesus Christ.
290.010.010 Torrey: p287, T:I, P:1
POINT 10: Jesus Christ
was begotten of the Holy Spirit.
The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit
will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the
holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.
In regeneration the believer is begotten of God; Jesus Christ
was begotten of God in generation. He is the only begotten Son of God.
For God so loved the world that he gave
his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have
The regenerated man has the carnal nature received from his
earthly father and the new nature imparted by God. Jesus Christ had only the
new holy nature. He was, however, real man as he had a human mother.
290.010.020 Torrey: p287, T:I, P:2
POINT 20: Jesus Christ
led a holy, spotless life, and offered Himself to God, through the working of
the Holy Spirit.
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our
consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
290.010.030 Torrey: p288, T:I, P:3
POINT 30: Jesus Christ
was annointed for service by the Holy Spirit.
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with
the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all
who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent
me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release
from darkness for the prisoners,
Luke 4:14, 18-
19  Jesus returned
to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the
whole countryside.  "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because
he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim
freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the
oppressed,  to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."
Luke 3:21- 22
 When all the people were being
baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened  and
the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came
from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."
4:1, 14  Jesus,
full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit
in the desert,  Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit,
and news about him spread through the whole countryside.
290.010.040 Torrey: p288, T:I, P:4
POINT 40: Jesus Christ
was led by the Holy Spirit in His movements.
Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned
from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert,
290.010.050 Torrey: p288, T:I, P:5
POINT 50: Jesus Christ
was taught by the Spirit who rested upon Him. The Spirit of God was the source
of His wisdom in the days of His flesh.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him
-- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power,
the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD
18  This was to
fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:  "Here is
my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put
my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations."
I would not have known him, except that
the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, `The man on whom you see
the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.'
290.010.060 Torrey: p288, T:I, P:6
POINT 60: The words the
Holy Spirit spoke to Jesus were the words of God.
For the one whom God has sent speaks the
words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.
290.010.070 Torrey: p288, T:I, P:7
POINT 70: Jesus Christ
gave commandment to His apostles whom he had chosen, through the Holy Spirit.
Acts 1:1- 2
 In my former book, Theophilus,
I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach  until the day
he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit
to the apostles he had chosen.
290.010.080 Torrey: p289, T:I, P:8
POINT 80: Jesus Christ
wrought His miracles in the power of the Holy Spirit.
But if I drive out demons by the Spirit
of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
290.010.090 Torrey: p289, T:I, P:9
POINT 90: Jesus Christ
was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit.
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus
from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also
give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
290.020.000 Torrey: p289, T:II
Topic 20:Practical Inferences
from the Work of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ.
Several things are evident from the study of the work of
the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ.
(1) The completeness of His humanity. He lived,
thought, worked, taught, conquered sin and won victories for God in the power
of that same Spirit whom we may all have.
(2) Our dependence upon the Holy Spirit. If
it was in the power of the Holy Spirit that Jesus Christ, the only begotten
Son of God, lived, worked and triumphed, how much more are we dependent upon
Him at every turn of life, service and conflict with Satan and sin!
(3) The wondrous world of privilege, blessing, victory
and conquest that is open to us. The same Spirit by which Jesus was
begotten is at our disposal for us to be begotten of Him. The same Spirit by
which Jesus Christ offered Himself without spot to God is at our disposal for
us to offer ourselves without spot, the same Spirit by which Jesus was anointed
for service is at our disposal for us to be anointed for service, and so on
through all the points given above.
Jesus Christ is our pattern, the firstborn among many brethren.
Whatever He realized through the Holy Spirit is there for us to realize also.
1 John 2:5-
6  But if anyone
obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know
we are in him:  Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
