Episode 83 The Holy Spirit came to create a new order
Why did God send the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost? How did the working of God change on that day? Have we really comprehended the significance to us of the Promise of the Father that brought God within each believer? Today we continue with the ministry of T. Austin-Sparks from Paul’s letter to the Galatians. Here is his introduction:
This morning we come to what I feel to be one of the most important messages that we have been giving. We have been seeing that the Letter to the Galatians is a concentration of the great change which took place with the coming of the Lord Jesus. That is, that the coming of Christ into this world changed the dispensations, and changed the whole nature of things. So that Christ stands as the dividing of two whole systems. The whole system of Judaism which had existed up to the time of His coming was set aside when He came. From that time, as He said, a new order was introduced, and that is represented by His repeated phrase, "The hour cometh and now is." Now this morning, we are going to consider the essential nature of that great divide. How the new dispensation and the new order differs from the old. This is a matter of supreme importance for us here this morning, and for all Christians if only they would accept it, because Christianity as we know it has been largely constituted on the old dispensation. The great difference between the old and the new has not been fully recognized.
