A question which has been on my mind for a long while now -- really bugging me. What are the differences in functions of Holy Spirit in the OT and the NT? Any know a good article I can peruse? I checked Pneumatology section on 'Highway', I also read relevant topics in Calvin's Institutes of Christian Religion (vol 1) and R.L.Dabnie's Systematic Theology, but was slightly disappointed since neither deal w/ that subject specifically. Would gladly appreciate any reference.

I had a similar question a while back in this thread.

Thx much, will go through the Warfield Article. The reason my interest in this topic sprung up is because of the current circumstances I find myself in. Before I thought me and my brother were the only Russian Evangelicals who are Reformed, but then I met a girl (who's now my wife) through whom I was introduced to a wider network of Slavs who also claim to be 5-pters, but who still hold on to Dispensationalism/Pre-Millennial systems. Like my brother in law, who has a PhD from Edinburgh a 5-ptr who's starting a series on eschatology being greatly convinced in propriety of Pre-Millennial system. Last sermon he mentioned that during the Great Tribulation, the converted Jews will be the ones who will spread the Gospel. With that he also believes that the Spirit (which is associated w/ the Church) will be raptured with the Church. So if there's no working of the Spirit who's there to do the regenerating? Does anyone out-there know how original Pre-Millennialists dealt with this question?

You also might find some help here: Eschatology - The Doctrine of Last Things. In that section there are two articles on the "Rapture" as well as other articles on Premillennialism.
