Christ the Preacher

It was the power

Of the Holy Spirit

Sent from God

To his son

That gave him

The authority

To preach

The word of God

 

St. Luke 4:16

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor…”

 

St. John 1:32

“I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode on him.”

 

Holy Spirit

The Spirit is able

To see in the dark

She is able

To walk through walls

She is able

To transcend time

She is able

To bring the Word of God

To life

She is able

To be among us

Yet not be seen or heard

 

Romans 8:11

“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.”

 

Holy Spirit

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting for the Lord

The one you see

Whom the Spirit

Descends upon

Is the Son of God

 

John was a witness

To the Spirit landing

On the head of Jesus

As he came up

From the water

 

She found a place

To rest her foot

She is the Holy Spirit

The dove sent

From the ark

 

St. John 1:32-34

“And I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him…And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.”

Holy Spirit

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting on the Word

There is a place

Beyond the mind

But you must

Overcome the mind

To get to it 

This is the Spirit

 

The mind can

Think and reason

But it cannot know

Jesus Christ

And he who sent him

 

But the Spirit can know

She is the body of Christ

His wife 

And these two are one

 

St. John 17:3

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

 

 

Holy

Christ did not forget

Where he came from

And has remained

Faithful and true

To those who are his—

The holy ones

True to the Holy Spirit

 

What holds true for Christ

Holds true for the Holy Spirit

They have the same vision

They see the same thing

 

We are made holy

By his death

Therefore if I am

Other than holy

He died in vain

 

Hebrews 10:10

“By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

Rev 22:11

“…and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”
