The eternity of the Spirit

Pentecost3We need to remember that the Holy Spirit was not totally absent before the time of Christ and before Pentecost. The prophets were filled with the Spirit. John the Baptist was filled with the Spirit from his mother’s womb. Jesus of course had the Spirit with him and he breathed the Spirit onto the disciples before he was crucified. Yet they were given a greater and fuller measure of the Spirit at Pentecost.
