The Holy Spirit
1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,
John 16:7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
WHEN JESUS LEFT THIS EARTH IT WAS IN HIS LIMITED HUMAN FORM. WHEN HE RETURNED IT WAS IN HIS UNLIMITED FORM AS THE HOLY SPIRIT.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
HE IS A PERSON… HE HAS AN INTELLECT. (A MIND)
Rom 8:27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
TPT God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.
AMP 26 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS A WILL.
1 Cor 12:11 “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.”
THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS EMOTIONS.
Romans 15:30 “Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me…”
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD!
Isaiah 6:8 And Acts 28:25
THE SAME PERSON THAT ISAIAH CALLED “THE VOICE OF THE LORD” PAUL CALLED “THE SPIRIT”.
Acts 28:25 “The Holy Spirit rightly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your fathers, 26 saying, ‘GO to this people and say, “You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; And you will keep on seeing, but will not perceive;
27 For the heart of this people has become dull, And with their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes; Otherwise they might see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.”’
Heb 1:1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son…
1 Pet 1:21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
Psalm 95:7 For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you would hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, As in the day of Massah in the wilderness,
Heb 3:7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me, As in the day of trial in the wilderness,
Acts 5:3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land? 4 While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”
2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
AS GOD HE IS OMNIPRESENT
Psalm 139:7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. 9 If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,10 Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
OMNIPRESENT: HE IS EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME.
AS GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OMNICIENT: ALL KNOWING
Isaiah 40:13 Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, Or as His counselor has informed Him? 14 With whom did He consult and who gave Him understanding? And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge And informed Him of the way of understanding? 15 Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket,
And are regarded as a speck of dust on the scales; Behold, He lifts up the islands like fine dust.
Mark 12:29 Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord
OUR GOD IS ONE GOD, BUT HE EXPRESSES HIMSELF IN THREE DIFFERENT FORMS.
AS GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OMNIPOTENT: ALL POWERFUL
Luke 1:35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ETERNAL
Heb 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
