Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit DescendingThe Holy Spirit empowered the holy Household Body. Saint Paul wrote in Ephesians 3.20-21, "Now to him, (the Holy Spirit) who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within us, to him be glory." The force of God not only works alongside us but dwells powerfully within us like blood circulating in the human body, encouraging us to encounter and experience Jesus.

William Harvey

William Harvey (1578-1657) and blood circulationBlood and breath were symbols of the Holy Spirit's work in the Christian. In 1615, the English physician William Harvey (1578-1657) explained in his book 'An Anatomical Disquisition on the Motion of the Heart and Blood in Animals' the amazing human blood circulation system. His discovery reflected the ancient Biblical truth from Leviticus 17.11, "The life of the creature is in the blood." He also developed and clarified the Greek physician Aelius Galen (129-c210 AD) of Pergamon's treaties and the Arab physician Ibn al-Nafis's book in c1242 AD on pulmonary circulation. Every organ, gland and tissue in the human body depended for its life on the condition of the blood stream. Though blood was not normally visible through the layers of skin and fat we could not live without it. Oxygen could not be seen in the blood stream which carried it but without oxygen the brain was starved and soon died. Blood was essential for the human body as the Holy Spirit was essential for the Christian Body.
