Galatians 3 speaks of the blessing of Abraham as The Promise Of The Spirit in verse 14, a very interesting connection. In verse 17, the Lord refers to the law as the covenant that came 430 years later, saying it could not cancel out the promise.
Ga 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
Ga 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
Ga 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
We can conclude here that the gospel promise of a kingdom to come, is also the promise of the spirit. So lets add that to our list of meanings for the gospel.
The Gospel message is a promise of a kingdom to come.
The Gospel message is a promise of entering into His Rest [Mt. Zion].
The Gospel message is a promise of the Spirit.
