153. The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament



True believers in the Old Testament had the Holy Spirit within them, in just the same way as true believers in the New Testament, and indeed, today do.

David had the Holy Spirit:

Psalm 51:11 - "Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me."

Moses had the Holy Spirit:

Isaiah 63:10 - "But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them. Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?"
