I am going to approach something that I have not seen here before. I would like to start a topical study, and begin with the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost. I want each person to post one or more scriptures that follow in sequence with the previous ones.I will be using the NKJV,and will start with the beginning : ( No comments...just scriptures).
Matthew 1.18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 1.20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, " Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3.11 " I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandles I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Matthew 10.32 " Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him, But the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

Matthew 28.19 " Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

(Now the next poster. Please go on with the ones in Mark, and use your choice of translations but preferably not the NIV.) ( After we are all done, comments will be welcome.)

NKJV...Bible Gateway

LUKE 1:15
For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.

And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

21 When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. 22 And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”

LUKE3 11:13
13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask

John answered, saying to all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Men [and] brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Act 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Act 4:8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, Act 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

Acts 9.17 And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, " Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."

Acts 9.31 Then the churches throughout all Judea, Gallilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.

Acts 10.38 " how God annointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with HIm.

Acts 10.44-45 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as amny as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also.

Acts 10.47 ( Then Peter answered,) " Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have ?"

I see some are posting the verses that do not contain the word "holy" . Since I am working on the concordance list of the verses that contain "Holy" I will continue in that vein. The other verses with other mention of the Spirit will be added later. ( Except when another verse immediately follows the one that says " Holy Spirit" ).

1 Corinthians 2.13 These are the words we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

1 Corinthians 2.14 But the natural man does not recieve the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 6.19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God,and you are not your own?

1 Corinthians 12.3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed,and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 6.6 by purity,by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love.

2 Corinthians 13.14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you.
