Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is first introduced in Genesis 1:2 and He is God…not an “it.” The Holy Spirit is the Author of all Scripture; the Holy Spirit is the power and work of God in Time; the Holy Spirit is the Guarantor of covenant relationship with God by faith in Jesus as Lord (Ephesians 1:13-14); without the Holy Spirit, there would be no salvation and mankind would be destined to death in Hell.
It is the Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8:11) and it is the Holy Spirit who becomes our best Friend when we trust in Jesus Christ as Lord as the Spirit takes-up residence within us and teaches us, guides us, leads us, comforts us, in God’s will for our life through the life-long process of sanctification (1 John 2:27; Galatians 5:16; John 16:13).
When all of the World might abandoned you and you have no one on your side it is the Holy Spirit who is there within you and will never leave you alone or forsake you (Proverbs 18:24). The Holy Spirit intercedes for you during prayer and takes your needs to the Father even when you’re unaware of that need (Romans 8:26).
It is the Holy Spirit that enlivens the mind and spirit of man to understand our need for God in Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 2:14) and it is the Holy Spirit that makes life tolerable through internal joy and peace as we exist in a fallen World, the majority of which is headed to death in Hell through compromise with the Devil via the rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord (Matthew 7:13-14).
