Who is The Holy Spirit?

Lets start off by taking a look at who The Holy Spirit is by breaking down each word of His description through the bible.

The – use of the shows there is only one.  Therefore there is a uniqueness of this person.

Holy – declares Him sacred and having a spiritually pure quality.

Spirit – implies He has no flesh and has no material substance.

Looking at these descriptions of Him and the ones below we will see he has all the divine attributes that make him part of the Triune Godhead.

Omnipresent 
Psalm 139:7-10
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
9 If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.

Omnipotent 
Luke 1:35
35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born [1] will be called holy—the Son of God.

Omniscient –
1 Corinthians 2:10-11
10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

Eternal  –
Hebrews 9:14
14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our [1] conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

Now that we have seen the uniqueness and divine nature of the Holy Spirit the next post will take a look at Him in the Old Testament and New Testament.

    This is good stuff! “For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” Your study on pneumatology is enlightening and enriching.
