How Do You Know When It’s of the Holy Spirit?

What is the Ministry of the Holy Spirit? One of the great misunderstandings of the ministry of the Holy Spirit is the effect of the Holy Spirit. There are branches of Christianity who maintain that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit are seen in outward manifestations such as speaking in tongues, being slain in the spirit, powerful feelings, laughter, barking. However, Scripture paints a different picture.  The fundamental evidence of the Holy Spirit is it’s power to make people holy in their behavior. When the Holy Spirit is working, you always see a desire for purity, love, joy,  humility and many other Christian virtues. Ephesians 5:18-33 makes it clear that the filling of the Holy Spirit results in husbands who love their wives and wives who submit to their husbands. These are works of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the spirit holiness.
