Matthew--Romans 7: Holy Spirit Ministry

Do not look for the churches experiences in the prophecies of Matthew, Mark and Luke.

The Gospel of Matthew is the Gospel of the Kingdom. Christ is the prophet that should come.
He shows them that the Temple must come down.
He shows them the Spirit of the Law.

Roman 7 is not the present experience of a Christian.  The first few verses show that—We are not in the flesh—and those that were and who were awakened by the Spirit of God—had this experience—Roman 8 Ye are not in the flesh—but in the Spirit is the Christian’s experience.

If we are full of the Holy Ghost we shall not be occupied with the fact but with a risen Christ. The Spirit speaks not of Himself—but of Christ.

Ministry which draws our thoughts out to a Living Christ—will lead souls to be filled with the Spirit.
