Is it the Holy Spirit’s Job to Convict of Sin or the Preachers Job? Biblically it is BOTH!

IS IT THE HOLY SPIRITS JOB TO CONVICT OR THE PREACHERS JOB?

 –
Someone made this comment on Facebook:
 –
“The Holy Spirit is the one that convicts us of righteousness not any preacher”
Actually, it’s both.
 –
THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTS
 –
Jhn 16:8 – And when he is come, he will reprove [ἐλέγχω – to convict] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
 –
HOLY SPIRIT FILLED PREACHERS CONVICT
 –
Luk 3:19 – But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved [ἐλέγχω – to convict] by him for Herodias his brother Philip’s wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done
 –
Eph 5:11 – And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [ἐλέγχω – to convict] them.
 –
1Ti 5:20 – Them that sin rebuke [ἐλέγχω – to convict] before all, that others also may fear.
 –
2Ti 4:2 – Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove [ἐλέγχω – to convict], rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
 –
Tit 1:9 – Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince [ἐλέγχω – to convict] the gainsayers.
 –
Tit 1:13 – This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke [ἐλέγχω – to convict] them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
 –
Tit 2:15 – These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke [ἐλέγχω – to convict] with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
 –
Biblically, it is the Holy Spirits job AND the preachers job to convict sinners of their sins.
 –
And the biblical support for the preachers to do it is technically greater, as there are 7 verses that support preachers convicting sinners and only 1 verse for the Holy Spirit…
 –
Just saying…
