HOLY GHOST.

d Jefus was conceived of the Holy Ghoft: And when he was baptized, the Heavens were opened unto him, and the Spirit of God defcended, like a Dove, and lighted upon him; and he was full of the Holy Ghoft: and, the Spirit of the Lord being upon him, he preached the Gofpel of Peace and Salvation.

e He caft out Devils by the Spirit of God: and, through the Eternal Spirit, he offered himfelf, without fpot, to God.

After Jefus, through the Holy Ghoft, had given Commandments unto the Apostles, whom he had chofen, and was taken up from them into Heaven; he fent them another Comforter, which is the Holy Ghoft; even the Spirit of Truth, who was to abide with them for ever, to guide them into all Truth, to teach them all things, to bring all things to their remembrance, whatfoever he had faid unto them, and to fhew them things to come.

a And the Apostles were all filled with the Holy Ghoft, and spake with other Tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

b That great Salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God bearing them witnefs, both with Signs and Wonders, and with divers Miracles, and Gifts of the Holy Ghoft, according to his own Will.

For, to one was given, by the Spirit, the Word of Wisdom, and Knowledge; to another the Gifts of Healing, by the fame Spirit; to another the Working of Miracles; to another Prophecy to another difcerning of Spirits; to another divers kinds of Tongues; to another the Interpretation of Tongues: but all these wrought that one and the felf-fame Spirit, dividing to every Man severally, as he would.

d Prophecy came not, in old time, by the Will of Man; but Holy Men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

e The Mystery of Chrift, which, in other Ages, was not made known unto the Sons of Men, was, in thefe laft Days, revealed unto his holy Apostles, and Prophets, by the Spirit.
