Many Christians believe that the Spiritual power of the Holy Spirit is manifest by physical means, and this was the purpose of the day of Pentecost, that has just been celebrated within the liturgical church. Yet Jesus in John 3 told Nicodemus, ""That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit" (John 3:6). In saying this Jesus separates the effects of the spiritual world from those of the physical world. In understanding the job of the Holy Spirit we must be careful to not assign more to the physical than to the spiritual.
In Acrts 2 Luke tells a 'story' in which God demonstrates through powerful wind, an earthquake, and fire. Yet in the history in the Old Testament in 1Kings 19:11-12 Elijah experienced WIND, EARTHQUAKE and FIRE, and God WAS NOT in these things. God was in the 'still, small voice'; and THIS is the voice of the Holy Spirit, one that teaches truth through WORDS, but not just any words, ONLY the words of God the Father in the Old Testament, and the words of the SON in the new Testament.
