 The Holy Spirit is a 'Person' and at work in the earth


Whatever name you choose to use, whether it is the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost or the Comforter or the Spirit of the LORD you are referring to the same Person of the Godhead. He is the ONLY Person of the Godhead who is IN the earth today. Just as our bodies are dead to the things of the spirit until we are born again and the Holy Spirit becomes joined to our spirit, so too the church (His body) is spiritually dead without the Holy Spirit.



As you study the scriptures here, let the Holy Spirit teach you and show you how they explain Who He is, and what His function is in the indidvidual believer, in the Church and in the earth as a whole. It is to our shame and detriment that we know so little of the third Person of the Trinity. Take the time to get to know Him here.

Remember that the work of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the person of Jesus Christ and not Himself.

 Re: The Holy Spirit is a 'Person' and at work in the earth

Greg said, "The Holy Spirit is a 'Person' and at work in the earth."

This is a tremendous truth, brother, and it has scarcely dawned on us to any great extent.

Christ told His disciples He was going to the Father. Yet He said, "I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you" (Jn. 14.18).

And He was speaking of the Holy Spirit.
