The Holy Spirit of God is not some smoke or cloud, nor is He a light. He is not a thing! The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead. Why do we call Him the third Person of the Godhead when, in fact, He’s the first Person to be revealed in the Scriptures? This is because He’s the last of the Trinity to be known by us. When you study in Genesis chapter one, it says, “In the beginning God (Elohim) created the heaven and the earth”(Genesis 1:1).
‘Elohim’ in Hebrew, is plural for ‘God.’ We are then told that the Spirit of God moved over the face of the deep. Thus, even though the Holy Spirit is the first to be revealed from ‘Elohim,’ He is the last that we get acquainted with, because Jesus said to His disciples in John 14:15-17, “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not,neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
The Holy Spirit is exactly like Jesus. He does not receive power from God. In fact, He is the POWER of God! The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth which proceeds from the Father. He is not less than the Father, nor is He less than Jesus. He proceeds from the Father. If you went to heaven, you wouldn’t find the Holy Ghost outside the Father, for He is in the Father. On earth, you’ll find Him everywhere! Why is this so? It’s because everywhere you go as a child of God, the Holy Ghost goes with you and His presence rubs upon everything that concerns you. Hallelujah…!
