A Divine Person!

Most of us begin thinking that the Holy Spirit is an influence; a force or something floating that produces a warm fuzzy and loving feeling in us. The holy Spirit is not any of that. He is a person! Someone in which we can know and love as a friend. The person, the Holy Spirit is external and living. He has no body like us, but we become His body when He lives in us. The Holy Spirit is one of the three persons of the Godhead. He is not the Father or the Son, but is experienced through their activities. As a person He possess all the attributes of a real person. He has a mind, He has knowledge, and He has a will. We will examine some of who the Holy Spirit is and what He does, so let's dive in and find out more about this person the Holy Spirit!"But God has revealed them unto us By His Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea the deep things of God." (I Cor.2:10)

"We know not the plans that God has for us, but the Holy Spirit has all knowledge ." This means that the Holy Spirit has an intellect along with the ability to search out what the Father's plans are for us. The Holy Spirit is the mediator between the mind of God and the mind of man. "For what man knoweth the things of man, save the spirit of man which is in him? (I Cor. 2:11) This statement gives Him a will of His own that give Him the thought process or decision making process.The Holy Spirit has the ability to talk to us. "And the hand of the Lord was upon me: and He said, arise, go forth into the plain and I will there talk with thee. Then the Spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, go shut thyself within thy house." (Ezekiel 3:22-27)

Here he is not only able to talk to us, but He has given a command. "Brethern, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus." (Acts 1:16) He not only speaks to us so we can hear, receive, understand and share what we have learned, but at the same time gives us guidance.

"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." (John 16:13) He will guide and teach us everything that we need to know. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom My Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you." (John 14:26)

The Holy Spirit is the creator of all. "In the begining God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters." (Gen. 1:1-2) He knows all because He created all. "All scriputre is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the mann of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." (II Tim. 3:16-17) God inspired by the divine Holy Spirit as in IIPeter 1:21b "but men moved by the Holy spirit spoke from God." In other words it was God breathed, God inspired that was sent to us.

Wow! He is all powerful, all knowing, eternal, omnipresent, omniscient, encouraging, guiding, giving us counsel are just a few of His attributes. The power of the Holy Spirit is need everday in everything that we do to help us cope with problems and complexities of the difficult time in which we live.

He wants us to get desperate enough for Him to be totally open to do whatever, and whenever He wants to do something in our life.We must be filled and continue to be filled with His love each and every day. We first must have a desire, then ask the Father for his precious gift of the Holy Spirit. "If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?" (Luke 11:13)

One cannot even try to understand Him as a person unless one has fellowship with Him, the Holy Spirit. When one has fellowship with Him, He will give you what you need right when you need it. He is always right on time. His time. He will show us things that will better help our relationship with Him. We cause Him pain when we fail to live as we ought.(Ephesians 4;31-32) We have to set the stage for Him to speak to us and through us. We must yield to Him. Stay in His word, and keep worshiping with Him. One just never knows where it will take them!
