The Holy Spirit

Posted by thephotominister on April 24, 2013 at 5:30 PM

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity through whom God acts, reveals His will, empowers individuals, and discloses His personal presence in the Bible. The Holy Spirit is equal to the other two in position and power. He shares all the attributes of the Godhead: He is eternal, having neither beginning nor end ( Hebrews 9:14 ), omnipotent, having all power ( Luke 1:35 ), omnipresent, being everywhere present at the same time ( Psalms 139:7 ) and omniscient, or all knowing ( 1Corinthians 2:10-11 ). He possesses all the characteristics of personality. He is not an "it" ( Romans 8:16,26 ). The Holy Spirit has intellect, emotions, and will. He speaks ( Acts 13:2 ), intercedes ( Romans 8:26 ), testifies ( John 15:26 ), guides ( John 16:13 ), commands ( Acts 20:28 ), leads ( Romans 8:14 ), and reproves and convicts of sin ( John 16:8 ), He can be lied to and tested ( Acts 5:3-4,9 ), resisted ( Acts 7:51 ), grieved ( Ephesians 4:30 ), and blasphemed ( Matthews 12:31 ).
