Acts 5:32 says that God gives the Holy Spirit to those who obey Him. If course, it would make no sense for Him to give His Holy Spirit to those who do not obey Him. What would such people do with the Holy Spirit but grieve Him? (Isaiah 63:10; Ephesians 4:30)
The ancients have left us their literature – the ancient Greeks, the ancient Romans, the ancient Jews, and others. Among these, only the ancient Jews claimed to speak for the one true God. While other cultures wrote of the wisdom they had attained, the Jews spoke of wisdom that God had given them.
