Unseen Christ

“We need to realize that the Holy Spirit, WHO IS AS MUCH A PERSON AS GOD IS A PERSON, IS WALKING THROUGH THESE GROUNDS, UNSEEN BY HUMAN EYES; … HE HEARS EVERY WORD WE UTTER and knows every thought of the mind.” — (E.G. White, 2SAT, pp. 136, 137, 1899)

The Power of the Spirit

Originally published on Signs of the Times – March 8, 1910, Pg. 3

Who Did Ananias and Sapphira Lie To?

Does Acts 5:3-4 say the Holy Spirit is God or that they lied to the “Almighty God” as it is His Spirit? Acts 5:3-4(KJV) “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.”
