Lecture Nine

Lewis Sperry Chafer on Unknown Date in DTS Archives

Lecture Nine covers The Power to Do Good subtopic 7: The Intercession of the Spirit, and begins topic 3: Conditions for the Filling of the Spirit, subtopic 1: Grieve Not the Spirit

Dr. Chafer quickly addresses the role of the Spirit as intercessor in a believer’s prayer, before moving on introduce his next large topic concerning conditions for the filling of the Spirit. He lays out the three areas—two negative and one positive—in which a believer may be filled by the Spirit: grieve not the Spirit, quench not the Spirit, and walk by means of the Spirit. When the Spirit is grieved salvation is not lost, but fellowship with God is damaged. (Speaker Disclaimer)
