The Blessing of Abraham is the Holy Spirit ...



Gal. 3:7, 9, 14, 29. 
"Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 
And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."

As taught by Charles G. Finney


" ... the Blessing promised to Abraham, and to his seed, and through Christ his seed, to all the nations of the earth, is the HOLY SPIRIT ♥ .


This is the Grand Thing upon which the prophets and the inspired writers seem to have had their eye all along under the old dispensation ...

This Blessing of Abraham is to be received by FAITH ... 

To receive the Holy Spirit is to take him for our Parakletos, our Comforter, Guide, Instructor. ♥

Now it is manifest on the very face of it, that the Holy Spirit can only be received by the mind, by that act which constitutes faith.


Perception of the truth, is not itself Faith.

A realization of the truth is not itself Faith.

Though both these are indispensable to its existence, yet Faith itself is an act of the will--a trust--a confiding in--a yielding up of the whole being to the influence of Truth.--

Faith then is the yielding up of our voluntary powers to the guidance, instruction, influences and government of the Holy Spirit.

This is receiving him, and this is the Only possible way in which he can be received.

The mere perception of truth respecting him is not Faith, nor is it a receiving of him.

For the truth respecting him may be perceived, and often has been perceived and yet rejected. Nor is a realization of the truth respecting him, however deep and intense either Faith, or a receiving of him.

But when his offers of guidance are perceived and realized, Faith is that act of the mind that lays hold upon these offers ~ that yields up the whole being to his influences and control. " ♥
