God the Holy Spirit is called the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of truth and is the Spirit of God.  We know that in the beginning, when God created the world the Holy Spirit was present and active.

 

The following scripture tells us:

 

Genesis 1:12

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 

God the Father was never alone, Jesus and the Holy Spirit have been with Him since the beginning of time.  Many people will say they know of God and they know of Jesus; but when we mention the Holy Spirit, that’s where we lose them.  Even some Christians of various denominations are baffled by Him.  They can accept that God and Jesus are in heaven, but The Holy Spirit of God who dwells in the earth and within us, is a genuine challenge for the world.

 

Jesus speaks of the Holy Spirit many times.  In the book of John, Jesus is speaking to His disciples and comforting them knowing that He has to leave them shortly and confirms that the Holy Spirit will come:

 

John 14:16

 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter (The Holy Spirit,) that He may abide with you for ever;

 

The concept of the Holy Spirit baffles the world over, but Christ also says the world cannot accept Him because they don’t know Him.  If they haven’t accepted Christ, they cannot accept the Holy Spirit and indeed some who do accept Christ still cannot accept the Holy Spirit.

 

John 14:17

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees Him not, neither knows Him: but you know Him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you.

 

He dwells within us, but not against our will, only when we ask Him to come into our lives and ask Him to fill us with His Holy presence.  The world does not know Him, but every Christian should.  If you are a Christian and have no idea who the Holy Spirit is, start asking the Lord to reveal Himself to you, remember He is God the Holy Spirit.  When you try to explain to people who the Holy Spirit is, you have to do it from your personal testimony standpoint because trying to prove He exists is like trying to prove God the Father exists.  This is not a task God has given to us.  If you do not experience the Holy Spirit, you will not know Him and you cannot receive Him.

 

One very important fact to remember here is that the Holy Spirit is a living breathing being, the divine Holy Spirit of God and should never be referred to as ‘IT.’  ‘IT’ is an inanimate object, without thoughts, feelings or will, not a person.  For a non-Christian who doesn’t know the Holy Spirit, it is understandable, but it is very sad when Christians refer to our God, our teacher, our comforter who leads us into all truths, as ‘IT.’

 

The Holy Spirit empowers us for the spiritual journey ahead.  When we pray to God in the name of Jesus, the power and authority comes from God the Father through Jesus who instructs the Holy Spirit and He carries out the work; it’s fascinating!

Poem of Encouragement

Fight in your Blindness

You may attempt to fight me, but you cannot see For your blindness, and your short sightedness Puts you at a disadvantage Your quest will fail, for you cannot prevail Against Him who called me, the One who hung on that tree! The hearts of men are fickle, and their love for God is but a trickle As they praise each other, with fervour and vigour Their faith cooled and likened to the wind Which blows in this direction and for a moment has their attention Then seeking over yonder, and now they’re off on a wonder. Grace no longer in them abound, as a new friend they have found Pandering to their every desire, unawares they’re caught in the mire Struggling, fighting to build their empire. Refusing to stand where they’ve been placed and trying to run every other race Resurrecting practices long since outlawed, implying that Grace has to be flawed. Your desire is my spirit to kill, for this gives you the deepest thrill But your limited efforts feeble at best, will fall down when put to the test For upon lies and hate my character you try to assassinate But know that God does not sleep and His people He will keep By His awesome power and might, relieving me, I have no need to fight. For when the truth set me free, the darkness will never again see me I will fight to do what’s right, in the Lord’s sight If you don’t live by this code You are powerless to defeat me, because I’m free From the powers of sin, which you continue to walk in. © P.L.
