"Powerful!" When was the last time someone used the word IGNITED, LIT UP or ON FIRE to describe you? God put His Holy Spirit in us so we could experience His power. Power over darkness, temptation, and above world knowledge. We need the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives to become the people of God we need to be, to accomplish the mission God has called us to do. We cannot be effective without the person of the Holy Spirit. "And I (Jesus, the Son) will ask the Father (One God), and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever - the Spirit of truth. (Holy Spirit) The world cannot accept HIM, because it neither sees HIM nor knows HIM." John 14:16-17 The Holy Spirit in the Word of God is described as a person, not smoke, mirrors or an invisible force ---but, as a person. The Holy Spirit has been described by intellectuals: "There is an indefinable mysterious power that pervades everything, I feel it though I do not see it. It is this unseen power which makes itself felt and yet defies all proof, because it is so unlike all that I perceive through my senses. It transcends the senses." Mahatma Ghandi The Holy Spirit defies all science. As a person who is stronger than all other power, the Holy Spirit has emotions. We are directed not to grieve, or insult the Holy Spirit. Attributes of God ascribed to the Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit is:
"Eternal" Hebrews 9:14
"Creates" Genesis 1:2 + 1:26
"All powerful" Luke 1:35
"All knowing" 1 Corin 2:10-12
"Present everywhere" Psalms 139:7
The Holy Spirit has emotions:
"Do not grieve" Ephesians 4:30
"Do not insult" Hebrews 10:29
The Holy Spirit has intellect:
"The mind of the Spirit" Romans 8:27
and 1 Corinthians 2:10
The Holy Spirit has a will:
"He decides spiritual gifts" 1 Corinthians 12:11
"He chooses" Acrs 12:2
The Holt Spirit is a divine person:
"But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you" John 14:26
WOW, the Spirit of TRUTH has a burning desire to be known by YOU! The Comforter comforts when we hurt. The divine Counselor sent by God, instructs, guides and teaches us. The Holy Spirit is everywhere we are. He reminds us of the Word of God. "Judge not, and to love thyself as we are loved, and to love others the same...unconditionally. AMEN
