From Glory to Glory Greetings to you and welcome to the month of August 2016, your month of fresh encounters with the Holy Spirit.
This month, we will undertake a detailed study on the subject of the Holy Spirit and I will like us to begin the series with an understanding of the personality of the Holy Spirit. I will like to approach this subject-matter by first of all asking: Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person of the Trinity and the Trinity consists of God, the Father, the Son – Jesus; and the Holy Spirit.
1 John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one…” KJV
From the scripture above, there are three personalities in one and that on its own is a great mystery! The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person in the Trinity; and He is same as God.
A lot of people are of the opinion that the Holy Spirit is just a feeling or an emotion and many often use the word “it” while referring to Holy Spirit but the Holy Spirit is a personality. Just before his ascension, Jesus promised his disciples that He would pray to God to give us ANOTHER comforter who will abide with us forever (John 14:16). The word ANOTHER in that verse means of the same kind, so the Holy Spirit is more than a feeling, some active force; or an influence.
All through this month, we will be exploring His Personality, His Power and His Ministry; and I believe that this month will give you a much greater experience with the Holy Spirit.
God BLESS you
From Glory to Glory!
