“My Spirit” in Isaiah and Ezekiel: Apostolic Pneumatology


Today I finished my study of every mention of “My Spirit” in Isaiah and Ezekiel. I continue to be energized by this work, both by the challenges the text presents and by the discoveries of what are, to me, new insights.

Here are some of my observations for today: Isaiah 30:1 and its pneumatological oneness; Isaiah 42:1 and its messianic significance; Isaiah 44:3 and its thematic connections with Numbers 11:29; Joel 2:28-29; and Acts 2:16-21; Isaiah 59:21 and its multigenerational “Pentecostal” fulfillment, along with its use by Paul to provide prophetic support for his assertion that “all Israel shall be saved”; Ezekiel 36:26-28; 37:14; 39:29 and the idea that spiritual renewal comes first; all other renewal follows.

Tomorrow I plan to look at every reference to “My Spirit” in the Book of the Twelve, which will involve Joel 2:28-29; Haggai 2:5; and Zechariah 4:6; 6:8.
