The Person Of The Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit is one of the most misunderstood and less known member of the Godhead, sadly by the church folk. That is why He is mostly referred to as “it”. He is not “it”; He is GOD, distinct from GOD the Father and GOD the Son. He is fully GOD just as Christ is, and came to take the place of Jesus in the world and in the church. He is the “another” that Christ promised in John 14:16. Well, He came down at Pentecost just as promised and will be with us forever.
He is of the same GOD kind, nature and personality as the Father and the Son. Yes, He has a personality. He is as extremely mighty and powerful just as He is sensitive, gentle, kind and humble. He does not force Himself where He is not invited or welcomed, He’s unobtrusive. As GOD, He has a divine will to act independently and sovereignly in the church and in the world.
He has emotions and feelings. He can be quenched or resisted, or grieved by us. Man is perfectly capable of resisting the Holy Spirit of GOD. He is capable of expressing deep emotions as when He groans in intercession for us and the rest of mankind. He comforts, teaches, guides and helps believers. He possesses wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and imparts these virtues to us. He pours out the love of GOD in our hearts. Oh, what a precious blessing! He forms the divine nature and personality of GOD in us and distributes to us extraordinary gifts of power in order for us to serve GOD more effectively.
He selects, appoints, anoints and sends laborers into the work of GOD to harvest souls. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He is number one witness for Christ. He also witnesses with our spirit that we’re children of GOD. Holy Spirit is the LORD of the harvest; He holds the keys, secrets and strategies for soul-winning. It is only He who can help us to live perfectly aligned to God’s will and purpose. It is only Him who gives us victory over the devil, because He is the Greater One who is in us. Holy Spirit is Awesome GOD, Omnipotent Father of mercy and grace. He yearns for fellowship with you.
