The Holy Spirit Working With Jesus

Holy Spirit at Baptism pic

And when Jesus was baptized, He went up at once out of the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he [John] saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on Him” (Matthew 3:16 (AMP). Jesus was the Son of man. He identified with us as came as a human child, growing up as a youth, and coming to this important place in His life. As the Holy Spirit did in the Old Testament, He came on Jesus—coming upon Him. “1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD” (Isaiah 11:1-2). Everything Jesus did had purpose and meaning. Here He was fulling the prophecy in Isaiah. The Spirit was working with Him to accomplish the Father’s purposes of redemption. Today, because of the finished work of Jesus, The Holy Spirit abides in us. He is working with us to accomplish the Father’s purposes for us.
