Activity in the Life of the Old Testament Man

The activity of the Holy Spirit in the OT

Before Jesus was born, the Holy Spirit was active in the life of man in a variety of ways as some of these examples show.

The Holy Spirit sustained life (Gen 6:3; Job 34:14-15).

The Holy Spirit spoke through various people such as prophets of Israel (Isa 59:21; Zech 7:12), a warrior (1 Chron 12:18), and a pagan prophet (Num 24:2, 4).

The Holy Spirit brought the power of God (Judg 14:6).

The Holy Spirit provided knowledge (Ex 35:31-35).
