    Hebrews 5:12-14 (KJV) "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."



    Proverbs 27:17 (KJV) "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."

















    "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." Proverbs 25:11







    Who Is The Holy Spirit?

    Jesus Christ our Lord told us: "But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things & will remind you of everything I have said to you." John 14:26

    The Holy Spirit is the the third person in the Trinity i.e. Godhead. Jesus Christ promised the Apostles that he would send the Holy Spirit after his crucifixion & resurrection. And, this we know was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost.
    "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, & it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, & began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." Acts 2:1-4
    The Trinity/Godhead in the christian doctrine describes the nature of God:
    1. There is one & only one God
    2. God eternally exists in three distinct persons
    3. The Father is God, YHWH God - the Son is God, Jesus Christ, Yeshua, - the Holy Spirit is God, Ruach HaQodesh

    Take note also that the Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Father, the Father is not the Spirit, yet they are one in the Trinity/Godhead.

    In Christianity the study of the Holy Spirit is called 'pneumatology', from two Greek words, pneuma meaning 'wind,' 'breath,' or 'spirit' & 'logos' meaning 'word,' or 'logic.' Herein we know the Holy Spirit by His personality, His diety, & His work.

    The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit is a person. The Holy Spirit has a definite role, planed & carried out in His work in salvation, teaching, guiding, bearing witness, & the santification to & for all believers ... John 14:26. The Bible clearly tells us also that the Holy Spirit can also be grieved ... Eph. 4:30. So we can clearly understand that the Holy Spirit is a definite personal part of our God & our Christ, to be known & loved in appreciation for His continual work upon this earth & God's people everywhere.

    The work of the Holy Spirit is extensive & His work is known as: counselor, comforter, rebuker, convictor, judge, exhorter, enabler, baptizer, & not to forget a consuming fire.

    With the work of the Holy Spirit in a believers life; they can live an empowered life that constantly saves them from the spirit of death & bondage that consumes the most people in the world, who do not know Him or have Him in their lives!

    In the Bible the Holy Spirit is referred to as:
  • Holy Spirit
  • Holy Ghost - KJV
  • Spirit
  • Spirit of the Lord
  • Spirit of Jesus
  • Spirit of God
  • Spirit of truth
  • Comforter (Counselor, Advocate)
  • Paraclete, Greek παράκλητος - par-a-klay-tos
  • Ruach, Hebrew
  • Supportive scriptures:

  • John 14:16
  • John 14:26
  • John 15:26
  • John 16:7
  • 1 John 2:1

  • The Holy Spirit communes with us & we with the Holy Spirit as Jesus Christ Emmanuel - God with us. We take the Holy Spirit's leading which is scripturally tuned & peaceful. The Holy Spirit is not grievous or a hard task master to our being & always strikes toward harmony in the Word of God. The Holy Spirit's actions are in gracious order & always secures us in Christ. The Holy Spirit brings about the santification & perfecting of the saints as applied to the new covenant that is in Christ Jesus. This is the Holy Spirit indwelling in each believer ... Romans 8.

    One important roles of the Holy Spirit not mentioned yet - is that the Holy Spirit helps us to pray.
    "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." Romans 8:26

    Because of the help we receive from the Holy Spirit & what Jesus Christ accomplished by His death, burial, & ressurection - we can now come boldly to the throne of grace ... Hebrews 4:16!

    The Holy Spirit will intercede in our behalf, as we give Him the place to do so, & because He always prayers according to the will of our Father, the Holy Spirit makes our prayers acceptable. As we seek Him the Holy Spirit actually will guide us & teach us how to pray. Not in formed or memorized words - but in spirit & in life - continually fresh & anew. We then as believers are constantly strengthened in our prayers & provided confidence & anointing in our prayer times, but always as we believers make the Holy Spirit a priority in our communing & worship of Father God & our Lord Jesus Christ.

    If you don't have that personal close relationship with the Holy Spirit, prayerfully use this message as a reminder & ask the Holy Spirit to reveal Himself to you. It is His nature, His reflection, His anointing that propels us onward in our walk in faith with Jesus Christ daily. Don't let another day go by without seeking Christ's Holy Spirit with you right now! You will never be the same & that is how it is supose to be.
