Who has characterized The Holy Spirit? Through the ages, we’ve seen the work of artists who have pictured God The Father and God The Son, but why not God The Holy Spirit?
Before reading on, play the video below to learn what God said to Pastor Breedlove about addressing the Spirit of God.
The early term “Holy Ghost,” referencing an invisible nature, simply gave artists nothing to work with. In this series, we’re going to allow the Bible to “paint a picture,” using these five colors:
- The Person of The Holy Spirit
- Personal Treatment
- Divine Qualities
- Terms and Misconceptions
- Baptisms – How Many Are There?
On any picture, the first color is the one that sets your direction. Let’s consider Genesis 1:26 which reads: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” As we have personhood and personal characteristics, so must the Godhead, all three of them equally.
Man’s treatment of The Person of The Holy Spirit has not always been proper. He has been grieved, resisted, lied to, and blasphemed. Even so, He’s at your side! His well-known qualities are teacher, revealer, and comforter; but He is also omnipresent and omniscient. He bears witness, sanctifies, and commands!
Some people are confused by the “born,” “filled,” and “gifts” terms; and have misconceptions about “the new birth” caused by The Person of The Holy Spirit. Your Bible tells the truth in both cases, and clarifies the three baptisms.
