The Bible Demonstrates The Holy Spirit's Power

“The manuscript therefore that the Holy Spirit has given us is the Book which I hold in my hand, the writings of old, the Holy Scriptures, to which the apostle refers when he says, Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me.

“Did you ever stop to think that this one Book itself is a demonstration of the mighty power of the Holy Spirit? – a Book that was written in a period of fifteen hundred years – a Book that has sixty-six books in it – a Book that has been held down and burned by emperors and kings – a Book which has been forbidden to the people – a Book which has been destroyed time and again, and yet, like the adamantine cube of old, whenever it was upset, came down right side up? This Book itself is a demonstration of the power of the Holy Spirit. There is more power in that Book than there is in creation; there is more power in that Book than there is in the resurrection of the dead.”

“For whatsoever things are written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
