The extraordinary OPERATIONS of the

HOLY GHOST.

a Jesus was conceived of the Holy Ghoft :. And when he was baptized, the Heavens were opened unto him, and the Spirit of God descended, like a Dove, and lighted upon him; and he was full of the Holy Ghost: and, the Spirit of the Lord being upon him, he preached the Gospel of Peace and Salvation.

e He cast out Devils by the Spirit of God: and, through the Eternal Spirit, he offered himself, without spot, to God.

f After Jesus, through the Holy Ghoft, had given Commandments unto the Apostles, whom he had chosen, and was taken up from them into Heaven; he sent them another Comforter, which is the Holy Ghoft; even the Spirit of Truth, who was to abide with them for ever, to guide them into all Truth, to teach them all things, to bring all things to their remeinbrance, whatsoever he had said unto them, and to shew them things to come.

a And the Apostles were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and spake with other Tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

o That great Salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, was confirmed unto us by them that heard him ; God bearing them witness, both with Signs and Wonders, and with divers Miracles, and Gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own Will.

c For, to one was given, by the Spirit, the Word of Wisdom, and Knowledge ; to another the Gifts of Healing, by the fame Spirit; to another the Working of Miracles; to another Prophecy: to another discerning of Spirits; to another divers kinds of Tongues; to another the Interpretation of Tongues : but all these wrought that one, and the self-fame Spirit, dividing to every Man severally, as he would.
