We now turn to the discussion of those effects of the divine indwelling that are worked in the Christian's life. That life is bound up in the one word salvation,, and salvation comes through the illumination of tl1e soul with spiritual "knowledge. Christ's own anointing with the Holy Spirit, according to Isaiah, was to be an anointing with " the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the · fear of the Lord." Is. 11, 2. Now, this same Spirit of wisdom and understanding and heavenly knowledge dwells in our hearts through faith.
