A. It was after these other signs were fulfilled that Saul was to know that Samuels' words of the Kingdom were true and God was with him.
1. The receiving of the Spirit brings assurance.
a. I John "We know He e abides in us and we in Him, by the Spirit He has given us."
b. Satan may challenge many things.

2. Your conversion.
3. Cannot challenge the fact of the indwelling Spirit.
2. The Spirit is God's pledge to us. Eph. "He has given us the Spirit who is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.
