Who is the Holy Spirit

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Simply put, the Holy Spirit is God.  He is divine and the third person of the Trinity.  He has His own mind, will and emotions.  To truly appreciate the fruits of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, it is helpful to understand some characteristics of the Holy Spirit.

  • He is God.  Acts 5:3-4
  • He is omnipresent, everywhere simultaneously. Psalm 139:7-8
  • He is omniscience, having total knowledge. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11
  • He thinks and knows. 1 Corinthians 2:10
  • He has emotions and grieves.  Ephesians 4:30
  • He intercedes for us. Romans 8:26-27
  • He is a decision maker. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
  • He is our comforter and counselor. John 14:16, 26; 15:26

He can be seen throughout all scripture; even at the beginning of creation.
