The Horizon of Divine Purpose

by T. Austin-Sparks

Recorded Aug 1961

"With God everything is horizoned by one definite and clearly revealed purpose. That purpose is the hallmark of the Holy Spirit. Wherever in the Word of God we come upon the Holy Spirit - from the very first reference in the first words of the Bible to the last in the book of the Revelation - in the one case, the Spirit of God brooding upon the face of the deep; in the other and final case, "and the Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come.'" From first to last, all the way through, whenever we come upon the Holy Spirit, we come upon definiteness of purpose."
