HOLY SPIRIT, Gospel of John, 1 John
The apostle John's writings contain an abundance of revelations on the Holy Spirit: His divine Person, His presence, His attributes and His operations. Such teachings complement in a marvellous way those of the apostles Paul and Peter. Paul reveals the Holy Spirit's Baptism of the Assembly to be one body, the Unction of the Spirit, the Seal of the believer's heavenly calling, the Earnest and the Firstfruits of his inheritance in Christ. Also, the Assembly (collectively) and the body of each christian (individually) are the Habitation of God by His Spirit. Finally, the Spirit's gifts are sent upon earth by a glorified Christ for the edifying of the Assembly, His body. For his part, Peter reveals that the Old Testament prophets were directed by the Spirit to testify about the sufferings of Christ and the glory that should follow: David, the sons of Korah, Asaph, Hezechiah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah and many others announced beforehand, through their own experiences, the great events of the great mystery of godliness concerning Christ: His Names (Son of God, Son of Man, King of Israel and Son of David), His coming in the world, His birth from the virgin, His death, His resurrection, His elevation in glory, His sitting at God's right hand, His second coming and His future Kingdom. Further, the Christians, as living stones, are built up upon Christ, the foundation stone, to be a holy priesthood (in the likeness of Aaron's) and a royal priesthood (after the order of Melchisedec).
The manyfold aspects of the Holy Spirit given in John's writings are different and worth close attention. Before reading the corresponding Scriptures, it would be appropriate to summarise the various points that can be distinguished in that respect. Six will be found in John's gospel, three in John's first epistle, and five more in the book of Revelation; fourteen in all. We would not venture to say that it makes a double fullness of revelation (twice seven), although it is complete in itself.
