The Coming of the Spirit

Christ’s witness was a local one, it was in Judea, and it was in Galilee, to all who came to hear Him. And our Lord says: ‘It is profitable that I go away, it is expedient, it is necessary for the purposes of God; so that now the third person of the Trinity, the Spirit, may come. And His witness will be to all men, so that they are without excuse.’ Nowhere, on no continent nor island, is there a man who is not being convicted by the Spirit.

About the author

R. J. Rushdoony

Rev. R.J. Rushdoony (1916–2001), was a leading theologian, church/state expert, and author of numerous works on the application of Biblical law to society. He started the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965. His Institutes of Biblical Law (1973) began the contemporary theonomy movement which posits the validity of Biblical law as God’s standard of obedience for all. He therefore saw God’s law as the basis of the modern Christian response to the cultural decline, one he attributed to the church’s false view of God’s law being opposed to His grace. This broad Christian response he described as “Christian Reconstruction.” He is credited with igniting the modern Christian school and homeschooling movements in the mid to late 20th century. He also traveled extensively lecturing and serving as an expert witness in numerous court cases regarding religious liberty. Many ministry and educational efforts that continue today, took their philosophical and Biblical roots from his lectures and books.
