Intercession of the Spirit

"(Rom. 8:26, 27; John 14:26). "Christ is a royal Priest (Zech." "6:13). From the same throne, as King, he dispenses his Spirit to" "all the objects of his care, while as Priest he intercedes for" "them. The Spirit acts for him, taking only of his things. They" "both act with one consent, Christ as principal, the Spirit as" "his agent. Christ intercedes for us, without us, as our advocate" "in heaven, according to the provisions of the everlasting" "covenant. The Holy Spirit works upon our minds and hearts," "enlightening and quickening, and thus determining our desires" "'according to the will of God,' as our advocate within us. The" "work of the one is complementary to that of the other, and" "together they form a complete whole.", Hodge's Outlines of" Theology.
