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.
