The Holy Spirit’s Work during The Millennium

‘As our present baptism in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, and knowledge of the Spirit are but a foretaste of the fullness which awaits us at the coming of our Lord and Savior, so the whole work and ministry of the Spirit on the earth in this dispensation are but drops of blessing compared with the great, sweeping universal work that is before Him during the Millenium. Christ in person and the Holy Spirit in immanent presence work hand in hand in the reclamation and transformation of the earth in this period. With the removal from the earth, at Armageddon, of all who had taken the mark of the beast during the trivulation the binding of Satan in the bottomless pit, the return to this earth of the redeemed of all ages who will constitute the Bride of Christ reigning at His side, the Holy Spirit will then have full and free sway among the sons of men. Then shall Joel’s prophecy find its full fulfillment: “It shall come to pass afterward (in the last days, Acts 2:17) that i will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.” Joel 2:28, 29. Isaiah also  wrote of this time when “the Spirit be poured upon us from on high.” isa. 32:15. Also in Isa. 44:3: “For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring.” Ezekiel adds his prophecy (36:27): “And I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statutes.” ‘
