The Person of The Holy Spirit: 10 Things You Should Know

The Holy Spirit is probably the least understood person of the Trinity. Invisible, perhaps but real. Among the myths and mistaken concepts that are shared, He has been described as a force, a ghost and a second-class or replacement god. He is confused with the manifestations themselves, and has even been presented as an incidental figure that appears momentarily.

It is vital for the church to know the Spirit, learn to relate to Him, and understand how He manifest Himself. So we ask this question is “is the Spirit a Person?”. The answers is that the Bible presents a person as a substance that can do personal and relational things (such as speaking, thinking, feeling acting). Something that does these personal things in relationship, like God, angels and human beings – is a person.

So how does the Holy Spirit fare up under this criteria?

1. The Spirit Teaches and reminds

John 14:26, “the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the father will send in my name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said ti you.”

1Cor 2:13, “we impart this words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting Spiritual truths to those who are Spiritual.”

2. The Spirit Speaks

Acts 8:29, “the Spirit said to Philip, go over and join this chariot”

Acts 13:2, “while they were worshiping the lord and fasting the Holy Spirit said, ‘set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them'”

3. The Spirit makes decisions

Acts 15:28, “it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements”

4. The Spirit can be outraged

Hebrews 10:29, “How much worse punishment, do you think will be deserved by the one who has. . . . outraged the Spirit of God?”

5. The Spirit can be lied to

Acts 5:3,4, “why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit? . . . . You have not lied to man but to God”

6. The Spirit Searches everything and Comprehends God’s Thoughts

1Cor 2:10-11, “the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God . . . no one comprehends the thought of God except the Spirit of God”

7. The Spirit apportions Spiritual gifts

1Cor 12:11, “the same Spirit . . . apportion (spiritual gifts) to each one individually as He wills.”

8. The Spirit bears witness to the believers about their adoption

Rom 8:16, “the Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God”

9. The Spirit bear witness to Christ

“But when the helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me”

10. The Spirit glorifies Christ, takes what is Christ and declares it to believers

John 16:14, “He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you”

  7. And commenting on other blogs isn’t just helpful for new bloggers — it’s helpful for those of us who have been doing it a while, too. All of us want to build relationships. 
    Thank you! Yes, I enjoy step-by-step guides, too. They make learning a lot easier.

  8. After that you could contribute to the community by guest posting. You’ll have much more better results because people are already familiar with you.
    This makes commentators be more familiar with you + it helps you when building relationship with top bloggers.

  9. Something I learned from Danny Iny is that when you’re starting out, you need to be commenting on other blogs/forums and so on.
    Anyway, I like the way you presented the mistakes and how I could avoid them. I liked more the step-by-step guide to make helpful comments.

  10. Being social as a blogger is a great tip. Or, as I put it in “The Howdy Neighbor Technique” post I wrote over on Be A Better Blogger: be friendly! It goes a long way.
    Agreed. There really is no good way to respond to a generic or vague comment. Such comments take all the fun out of responding!

  11. Recently I’ve quoted some of the more negative emails and comments people have sent me…But today I thought I’d share some of the positive ones that I’ve got over the last two days:
    One of my big goals with Two Step Speaking is to make it as practical as possible, and actually get you DOING the process I teach, as you go through the course.

  12. Too many courses I’ve seen in the past just give you a lot of information… but don’t actually tell you what to do with it.
    Thank you for the great work you have done in 2SS course, it’s way more than just an English course. Joining this course is the best thing happened to me since a long time!

  13. I’ll right away grasp your rss as I can not in finding your email subscription hyperlink or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Kindly permit me understand in order that I could subscribe. Thanks.
