Holy Spirit PersonA person is made up of a body, soul and spirit. Our soul is our mind, will and emotions. We have thoughts, desires and feelings.
The Holy Spirit is also a person, with a mind, will, emotions, thoughts, desires feelings. He is the third person of the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
He serves as a teacher, a counsellor, a comforter, a strengther. He’s a caller of ministers, an intercessor in prayer, a revealer of scripture, He inspires, He convicts, and He gives spiritual gifts. He leads, guides, and He’s a healer.
He participated in creation with the Father and Jesus Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. He caused the Virgin Mary to conceive. Matthew 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
He has a mind: Romans 8:27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
He has a will: 1 Corinthians 12:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
His soul: Matthew 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased, I will put my Spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
He reveals all truth and guides you: John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
He grieves. Isaiah 63:10 Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit. So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against them.
He gives Joy: 1 Thessalonians 1:6 You became imitators of us and of the Lord; in spite of severe suffering, you welcomed the message with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.
He fellowships with us: 2 Corinthians 13:14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
He teaches: John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
He convicts the world: John 16:8 When he comes, he will convict the world of sin and righteousness and of judgment.
He counsels: John 15:26 When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.
He leads: Romans 8:14 Because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
He says no: Acts 16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia-i-a and the region of Ga-la-ti-a, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia.
He strengthens and encourages: Acts 9:31 Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace. It was strengthened; and encouraged by the Holy Spirit, it grew in numbers, living in the fear of the Lord.
He comforts you: John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.
He intercedes and helps us pray: Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
He lives in our body: 1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own ….
He knows God’s thoughts: 1 Corinthians 2:11 The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
He aligns with our spirit: Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
The Holy Spirit can be lied to Acts 5:3, resisted Acts 7:51, blasphemed Matthew 12:31-32, and quenched 1 Thessalonians 5:19.
The mind of God is inside you. The Spirits thoughts are Gods thoughts. He helps us to think like God thinks and to desire what God desires. He wants us to do Gods will, not our will. He’s wants to help us be more like Jesus. We need to be willing vessels, yielding to Him, obeying Him, so He can work in and through us. If we don’t obey, it hinders His workings. Talk to Him throughout the day. Be aware of Him, He lives inside you. God lives inside you.
God Bless. Heal the broken-hearted, bind up all their wounds.
