Who is the Holy Spirit? 5 Descriptions

Prayer A to Z

There are several ways the Holy Spirit has been described in scripture.  Here are five descriptions:

As Wind

On the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit came suddenly as a “rushing mighty wind” (Acts 2:2-4).  This wind—the Holy Spirit—filled the whole house where believers were gathered together for prayer; and they were filled with the Holy Spirit.  Thus we see that the Holy Spirit, just like the wind, is invisible, mighty, and awesome.  And even though we may be unaware of it, He still is moving all over the world.  He rushes in to fill and empower every heart that is prepared by prayer.  I believe He makes His presence especially powerful to those who gather together in one accord.

As Water

In John 4:13-15 and in John 7:37-39 we see that Jesus offers living water to all who thirst.  This living water in fact was and is the Holy…

4 Ways to have Unlimited Power in the Holy Spirit

Prayer A to Z

 

God has such great things in store for you.  He wants to give you all of His power through His spirit.  He wants to give you that power to do His great work.  Here are four ways to get that power: 

1.  Pray that Christ would be Lord in your Life.  When you pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you, pray also for the Lordship of Christ.  For unless Christ is Lord in your life, the Holy Spirit can do no work there.  He is not even welcome there.  So pray that God would help you to make Him Lord, that He would give you the humble submissive spirit of a son—a son that would welcome His Son as Lord, and His Spirit to take control.           

2.  Believe and obey God.  After you have prayed for the Holy Spirit to come in and fill you and for…

The Holy Spirit’s Role and Function in the Godhead

Prayer A to Z

 As a husband or wife have a role and function in their marriage, in much the same way the Holy Spirit has a special role and function in the Godhead.  In connection with the Holy Spirit’s role, I think it is essential, first of all, to understand that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.  In John 15:26 Jesus explains the Holy Spirit as one who proceeds from the Father.  And I think the Holy Spirit also proceeds from the Son since the Father and the Son are one.  This word “proceed” means to flow from.  That does not mean that He came from the Father and the Son as to originate from them or to be generated from them; but rather, proceed means that He eternally flows from the Father and the Son as to extend or to advance their life and purpose. Also…

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Prayer A to Z

 

As we can see from His name Holy Spirit…

He is holy.  He is holy simply because He is God.  He is the holy spirit of God and we call Him Holy Spirit.  Thus, being God, we know that He is holy.  As 1 John 1:5 indicates, God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.           

We also see in His name that…

 He is spirit.  Being spirit He is never visible and we can not touch Him.  But He does communicate and commune with us, from His spirit to ours, as we attempt to live in His spirit.  The more we put away the deeds of the flesh and walk in the Spirit, the more we will be able to commune with Him and sense in our spirit and in our mind (which I believe has a connection to the spirit) that He is present…
