Who is the HOLY SPIRIT?

 


Do you know anything about the Holy SPIRIT of GOD?

What do you think are His functions?

Let SCRIPTURE tell you in the CLEAREST terms.


1. In the beginning...

1 In the beginning 

God created 

the heaven 

and the earth.

2 And the earth 

was without form, 

and void; 

and darkness 

was upon 

the face 

of the deep. 

And the Spirit 

of God 

moved 

upon 

the face 

of the waters.

Genesis 1:1-2 (King James Version)


4 The spirit of God hath made me, 

and the breath of the Almighty 

hath given me life.

Job 33:4 (King James Version)


10 But God hath revealed them unto us 

by his Spirit: 

for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, 

the deep things of God.

1 Corinthians 2:10 (King James Version)


24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him 

in spirit and in truth.

John 4:24 (King James Version)


16 Know ye not 

that ye are the temple of God, 

and that the Spirit of God 

dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, 

him shall God destroy; 

for the temple of God is holy, 

which temple ye are.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (King James Version)


16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil 

the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:16 (King James Version)


38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth 

with the Holy Ghost 

and with power: 

who went about doing good, 

and healing all 

that were oppressed of the devil; 

for God was with him.

Acts 10:38 (King James Version)


4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, 

that in the latter times 

some shall depart from the faith, 

giving heed to seducing spirits, 

and doctrines of devils;

1 Timothy 4:1 (King James Version)


17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 

there is liberty.

2 Corinthians 3:17 (King James Version)


38 Then Peter said unto them, 

Repent, 

and be baptized 

every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive 

the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 2:38 (King James Version)


32 And we are his witnesses of these things; 

and so is also the Holy Ghost, 

whom God hath given to them 

that obey him.

Acts 5:32 (King James Version)


19 Go ye therefore, 

and teach all nations, 

baptizing them 

in the name of the Father, 

and of the Son, 

and of the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 28:19 (King James Version)


22 But the fruit of the Spirit is 

love, 

joy, 

peace, 

longsuffering, 

gentleness, 

goodness, 

faith,

23 Meekness, 

temperance: 

against such 

there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23 (King James Version)


3 And not only so, 

but we glory in tribulations also: 

knowing that tribulation 

worketh patience;

4 And patience, 

experience; 

and experience, 

hope:

5 And hope maketh 

not ashamed; 

because the love of God 

is shed abroad 

in our hearts 

by the Holy Ghost 

which is given 

unto us.

Romans 5:3-5 (King James Version)


11 I indeed baptize you 

with water 

unto repentance. 

but he that cometh after me 

is mightier than I, 

whose shoes 

I am not worthy to bear: 

he shall baptize you 

with the Holy Ghost, 

and with fire:

Matthew 3:11 (King James Version)


7 For God hath not given us 

the spirit of fear; 

but of power, 

and of love, 

and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7 (King James Version)


18 And be not drunk with wine, 

wherein is excess; 

but be filled with the Spirit;

19 Speaking to yourselves 

in psalms and hymns 

and spiritual songs, 

singing 

and making melody in your heart 

to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always 

for all things unto God 

and the Father 

in the name 

of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Ephesians 5:18-20 (King James Version)


14 How much more 

shall the blood of Christ, who 

through the eternal Spirit 

offered himself 

without spot 

to God, 

purge your conscience 

from dead works 

to serve 

the living God?

Hebrews 9:14 (King James Version)


26 Likewise 

the Spirit also helpeth 

our infirmities: 

for we know not 

what we should pray 

for as we ought: 

but the Spirit itself 

maketh intercession 

for us 

with groanings 

which cannot be uttered.

27 And he 

that searcheth the hearts 

knoweth 

what is the mind 

of the Spirit, 

because he maketh intercession 

for the saints 

according to the will 

of God.

Romans 8:26-27 (King James Version)


14 But the natural man 

receiveth not 

the things 

of the Spirit of God: 

for they are foolishness 

unto him: 

neither can he know them, 

because they are 

spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 2:14 (King James Version)


5 Not that we are sufficient 

of ourselves 

to think any thing 

as of ourselves; 

but our sufficiency 

is of God;

6 Who also hath made us 

able ministers 

of the new testament; 

not of the letter, 

but of the spirit: 

for the letter killeth, 

but the spirit giveth life.

2 Corinthians 3:5-6 (King James Version)


19 And it came to pass, that, 

while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul 

having passed 

through the upper coasts 

came to Ephesus: 

and finding certain disciples,

2 He said unto them, 

Have ye received 

the Holy Ghost since ye believed? 

And they said unto him, 

We have not so much as heard 

whether there be any Holy Ghost.

3 And he said unto them, 

Unto what then were ye baptized? 

And they said, 

Unto John's baptism.

4 Then said Paul, 

John verily baptized 

with the baptism of repentance, 

saying unto the people, 

that they should believe on him 

which should come after him, 

that is, on Christ Jesus.

5 When they heard this, 

they were baptized 

in the name of the Lord Jesus.

6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, 

the Holy Ghost came on them; 

and they spake with tongues, 

and prophesied.

Acts 19:1-6 (King James Version) 


2. GOD gives us the Holy SPIRIT

16 And I will pray the Father, 

and he shall give you 

another Comforter, 

that he may abide with you 

for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; 

whom the world cannot receive, 

because it seeth him not, 

neither knoweth him: 

but ye know him; 

for he dwelleth with you, 

and shall be in you.

John 14:16-17 (King James Version)


26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you 

from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, 

which proceedeth 

from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:

John 15:26 (King James Version)


7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; 

It is expedient for you 

that I go away: 

for if I go not away, 

the Comforter will not come unto you; 

but if I depart, 

I will send him unto you.

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:

9 Of sin, 

because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, 

because I go to my Father, 

and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, 

because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things 

to say unto you, 

but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: 

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath 

are mine: 

therefore said I, 

that he shall take of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

John 16:7-15 (King James Version)
