Who is the Holy Spirit?

Theological question concerning God the Holy Spirit:“Is the Holy Spirit a separate entity from God or is it just the Power of God like wind?”

Christian response,

God the Holy Spirit is traditionally held as the 3rd-Person of the Trinity. This numeric positioning is not meant to suggest the Holy Spirit is somehow less of God but in reality, the Holy Spirit is the active force, the tangible expression of the LOVE of God manifest in tangible ways in order that Creation, Redemption, Salvation can manifest within the Realm of Time. The Holy Spirit is first introduced to us in Genesis 1:2 and throughout Scripture the Holy Spirit literally “gets things done.”

It is the Holy Spirit that implanted Messiah into the womb of Mary (Luke 1:35) and it is the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8:11) and it is the Holy Spirit that worked through Messiah’s ministry of healing, raising the dead, casting out unclean spirits (Acts 10:38); without God the Holy Spirit, there would be no life, no hope (John 3).

It is the Holy Spirit that Seals us in the day of redemption, that is, He is our Guarantee of relationship with God the Father subsequent to our confession of Jesus Christ as Lord for the mediation of our sin (Ephesians 1:13-14). The Holy Spirit is indeed MOST WORTHY of our praise and worship and honor as He is our indwelling Gift from the Father who abides with the faithful forever as He walks us through the process of sanctification and prepares us for service in the Kingdom of God (1 John 2:27)!
