WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?

 

The Holy Spirit is a distinct member of the Trinity, separate from the Father and the Son Jesus Christ.  He has a personality and has a function within a believer’s life. The following is list of some of His personality traits and functions.



 HE IS A MEMBER OF THE TRINITY

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matt 28:19 NKJV)

 

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. (2 Cor 13:13-14 NKJV)

 

But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.  (John 15:26-27 NKJV)

 

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” Immediately the Spirit impelled Him to go out into the wilderness.  (Mark 1:9-12 NASU)

As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” (Acts 13:2 NKJV)

 

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. (John 16:13 NKJV)

 

HE SEARCHES

 

But we know these things because God has revealed them to us by his Spirit, and his Spirit searches out everything and shows us even God’s deep secrets. (1 Cor 2:10-11 NLT)

All that the Father has is mine; this is what I mean when I say that the Spirit will reveal to you whatever he receives from me. (John 16:15 NLT)

It is the one and only Holy Spirit who distributes these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have. (1 Cor 12:10-11 NLT)

 

HE ABIDES WITH US

 

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever… (John 14:15-17 NKJV)

 

HE GUIDES & FORETELLS

 

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. (John 16:13 NKJV)

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ… (1 Peter 1:2 NKJV)

…for the Holy Spirit will teach you what needs to be said even as you are standing there. (Luke 12:12 NLT)

 

HE CONVICTS

 

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment… (John 16:7-8 NKJV)

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (Eph 4:30 NKJV)

 

HE QUICKENS, GIVES LIFE

 

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63 KJV)

 

HE EMPOWERS TO WITNESS

…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. (Acts 1:8 NASU)

 

HE LEADS

 

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. (Rom 8:14 NLT)

 

HE BEARS WITNESS

 

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God… (Rom 8:16-17 NKJV)

 

HE INTERCEDES

 

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (Rom 8:26 NKJV)

 

HE BEARS FRUIT

 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Gal 5:22-23 NKJV)

DO NOT BLASPHEME THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

Every sin or blasphemy can be forgiven—except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which can never be forgiven. Anyone who blasphemes against me, the Son of Man, can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, either in this world or in the world to come. (Matt 12:31-32 NLT)

Do not quench the Spirit. (1 Thess 5:19 NKJV)

DO NOT LIE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

Then Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself. The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished. And after selling it, the money was yours to give away. How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God.” As soon as Ananias heard these words, he fell to the floor and died. (Acts 5:3-5 NLT)

REPENTANCE PRAYER OVER 
GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

Lord I humble myself before You and ask that You will forgive me for grieving the Holy Spirit, the very center of Your heart and feelings.  I have disobeyed when I have heard Your voice.  I have tested Your patience for years, when you have spoken to me about my willingness to change and I have resisted. 

 

In the past, I have tried to control my own response to Your Spirit and felt strangely about how others respond to You.  Please forgive me for anything I have done to try to control Your flow.  I have not intended to quench Your Spirit and hinder You in any way. 

 

I have not wanted to despise prophesies, Lord, and sometimes they are too strong of meat for me to discern and I have turned my heart the other way.  Please forgive me for despising any prophesy that is from Your heart. 

 

I have spoken wrongly about Your anointed leaders and complained.  Please forgive me for quenching Your Spirit due to unbelief and lack of reception to their message.  I ask that You will open my eyes and turn my hard heart to receive Your message through all Your chosen messengers.  Neither do I want to blaspheme the Holy Spirit by saying Your messengers are operating with the devil’s power.  I do not want to partner with such sin in Jesus Name.

 

Please deliver me from a hard heart from having grieved Your Spirit.  Return, oh Lord, not just with a visitation, but rather a habitation where You fill me and dwell with me in Your fullness.  Eradicate anything in my life that has given You sorrow.  Please let us abide together as one.  In Jesus Name I pray.

TO EXPERIENCE THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

The more I get to know the Lord, the more I have learned to experience the Holy Spirit.  This is not a logical, non emotional kind of relationship.  It is a walk that is actually experiencing the Holy Spirit, Who is the emotional side of God.  The Holy Spirit expresses the deepest part of His feelings.  When we become One with Him, we literally experience what God feels and once we tap into this, our lives are never the same. 

 

The emotional intimacy made available in knowing the Holy Spirit is not widely taught or understood.  That is because few have touched the Lord to know His real heart.  The Holy Spirit is vulnerable to being deeply hurt and grieved.  He reveals Himself to His friends and shares His deepest groanings with those He trusts.  He has the purest of love and the purest of joy!

 

John 11:33-34 NKJV

Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled.

 

Rom 8:26  KJV

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.

 

Luke 10:21 NLT

Then Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit and said, "O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding the truth from those who think themselves so wise and clever, and for revealing it to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way. 

 

Gal 5:22-23 AMP

 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,  Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].
