Holy Spirit: 1 the spirit of God,  

  •    2 Christian Theol. the third person of the Trinity

The Holy Spirit, although often erroneously referred to as it, is the third person of the Triune God (One God manifested as three persons). The word trinity is a much debated word since it is not found in the Bible, but although it is not found in the Bible the principle of the trinity is. But, there is a term found in the Bible which is appropriate and beyond reproach, the word is Godhead, which gives clarity to the triune nature of God. However, it is doubtful that anyone would argue that the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost) and God are not one. The problem arises when we begin to define the personhood of the Holy Spirit. When the Bible speaks of His individuality, it distinctly reveals Him as a person.  

He Can Be Grieved

Eph 4:30
And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

He Can Vexed

Isaiah 63:10
But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.

He Can Be Spoken Against

Matt 12:32
And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

He Speaks

Mark 13:11
 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

He's A Revealer

Luke 2:26
And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

He's A Teacher

Luke 12:12
For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

He's A Comforter

John 14:26
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

He Can Be Lied To

Acts 5:3
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

He Instructs

Acts 13:2
 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.


So, we see from these few scriptures how His Personhood is defined.

Do you need a comforter? Someone who will allways be with you, to help you, lead and guide you. We'll why wait He's here. Ask God into your heart and receive God's wonderful gift of His Spirit.
God, thank you for showing me my need of a savior, and thank you for providing me an escape from the penalty of sin. Jesus, come into my heart and be the Lord of my life I repent of my sin and receive your loving sacrifice as my own. Thank You.
