Course 9:  The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit.

     Welcome to our brief overview of the Person, Nature, and Work of the Holy Spirit.  It is not the desire of the AAE to make "theologians" out of Exorcism-Deliverance Ministers.  Rather, it is desired to provide to the E-D Minister additional knowledge about the Holy Spirit so that he/she will have increased faith, trust, and understanding of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is the only spirit that a person is permitted by God to summon and communicate with apart from the exorcism process itself.  Like Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit is active in the exorcism-deliverance process, especially in Christian baptism when the formerly possessed person comes to accept Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior.  The Holy Spirit also imparts the gift of "discerning of spirits," which comes in quite handy when evaluating a person for the presence of demonic possession.
