Who is the Holy Spirit
Is He a person or a thing?
Many people believe that “The Holy Spirit” refers to an individual who lives without sin; known as a “Saint”. However, this myth is not true. When Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day, He left His spirit on earth; God’s spirit. Therefore, The Holy Spirit is a person; it is part of the trinity; Father, Son and Spirit. Most people who follow Christ do not take the importance of His presence into consideration. Yes, Jesus died on the cross and gave everything He had for our faults. However, he lives through The Holy Spirit who guides us and one must acknowledge this. Do not ignore this fact. The scripture does say; “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) By Jerusalem, it means (your own location). “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) By Jerusalem, it means (your own location).
Born through His spirit
Many people have their “Religion” though they believe in Christ; i.e. Baptists, Catholics, Methodists etc. However, that is made by mankind. The importance and its foundation within it all are “Salvation” the scripture says; “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying; you must be born again. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So, it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” (John 3:6-8). The only way to be born again is by accepting Christ as the one and only savior but by doing this; one must acknowledge The Holy Spirit; his presence is wherever he is called due to multiple purposes. One of them being the most important of all; to find spiritual freedom. The scripture says; “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17).
Many people baptize their infants when being born; without a clue what’s behind it all. However, baptism has to do with salvation and should be done right after receiving Christ as their one and only savior. An infant cannot do such thing hence, a child does not speak nor understand. The scripture says; “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20).
The Character of The Holy Spirit
As one you already know, the Holy Spirit is a person; therefore, He has his own Character. His character is known as “God’s seven spirits”, So the scripture says; “And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. “ (Isiah 11:2). “But you said the Spirit of God is Christ’s Spirit and Christ is God; so how does he have seven spirits?” Indeed, if the Holy Spirit is God’s spirit, then the spirit of God are also known as the Holy Spirit’s Spirit; hence, he’s a person.
