Pentecost Sunday, not only is the Spirit around and among us but HE is in each of US. He is not only Emanuel (God among us) but now He is IN US. If we listen He will guide us.
In the old testament God filled the temple but NOW he fills us, check out:
John 14:20 (NIV)
On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
When the Holy Spirit comes into us there is the Wonder and AWWWW and an Epiphany that happens and you realize the amazingness of God living within us.
Romans 8:9 (NIV)
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.
The signet ring theme from the old testament is forshadowing of the Holy Spirit being in us, like a guarantee of what is to come!
2 Corinthians 1:20-22 (NIV)
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
And AGAIN in:
Ephesians 1:13-14 (NIV)
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.
in 520 BC he spoke to Zerubabell that he had the kings signet ring BUT now because of the new covenant the Holy Spirit has been deposited into us as a similar guarantee, WE NOW HAVE the signet ring…. IN US! it’s the promise of God returning.
