who is the holy-spirit?
What the function of the holy-spirit.
The holy-spirit is the third person in the God head that seem to be hidden in plain sight in the eyes of many people.
I could ask different people who is the holy-spirit and they will come up with different answers.
The holy-spirit is the doer i.e the manifest of the spoken word. He brings the word of God to life.
He is the active agent or the catalyst that indicates the change.
He is a compass.
He is a personal.
We will expound on this topic by reading some bible verses;
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (Genesis 1:2,
The Holy Spirit caused the Virgin Mary to conceive (Matthew 1:20), and at the baptism of Jesus, he descended on Jesus like a dove. On the Day of Pentecost, he rested like tongues of fire on the apostles.
The holy-spirit is power In action. From introspection the spirit manifest its self in measure in the lives of people. Luke 24:49 49I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” they awaited his manifestation.
The holy-spirit is all encompassing in functions and manifestation and easily you can understand this by the gift it gives examples of the gifts can include;
Speaking in tongues, prophecy, Love, word of knowledge, interpretation of tongues etc. it gives believers as needed it does not allow anyone to monopolize its gifts even when the bible says covet earnestly the best gifts.
1 Corinthians 12:31 31Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way
The fact that you prophesied yesterday does not mean you begin to call yourself a prophet, some begin to be mislead and they go opening churches saying they prophesied they have become prophets, when they can no longer prophesy they begin to make up prophesies.
The holy spirit like I said earlier is Power. When you read in the bible and in a context you see “and the spirit of the lord came upon him”
what is so funny about the power of the holy-spirit it does the unusual empowers you and you automatically reach your maximum potentials as humans that were intentionally created in the form of God before the fall of man. The first Adam lost the spirit.
Genesis 6:3 “3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.” irrespective of the fall we still have the likeness but a demo compared to the original and through the progression of time it declined look at Samson strong and special in stature, we still in the likeness because human beings exist in 3 parts or dimensions The body, soul and spirit.
To do exploit you must posses that spirit a double portion, that was the spirit that was in Jesus Christ and he operated under a different wave length even while he was in human form and of a truth it is because the holy spirit is present here that is why we still have a little sanity in this world today , that is why when he was to ascend he promised the disciples the followers note I did not mention any name that is as a follower of Christ the gift which is the holy spirit because it becomes an inheritance. The bible says in John 20:22 “And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
That was the spirit that cam upon Samson and he tore and annihilated the lion empty handed. i.e the holy-spirit augment powerless things and makes them powerful.
somewhere I n the book of judges Gideon was told by the angel that he will go deliver his people and Gideon acknowledged that his clan was the weakest but when God decides to use something the statos quo changes.
It was the spirit that came mighty and quickens the foot of Elijah and ran faster than the chariots.
The holy spirit quickens, heals … as student in school you need the divine compass to tell you what to do to achieve maximum success what to say, in the business what it helps maximize minimum to maximum and you begin to increase with little efforts look at Jacob. it is a long an interesting topic next sunday I hope to be able to elucidate on it but it is worth having seen sometimes when I am lost even using the gps when human made works begin to fail I turn to the holy spirit for guidance, reaction. If the people of this world confronts you and say how can you believe something you see not you ask them the fact that you do not see the wind does it mean it is not there , If they question the trinity take them to the dynamics of water, it eexist in how many forms but it is still water
