Who is Holy Spirit according to Bible?

The Holy Spirit is Almighty God and the third Person of the Holy Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – according to the majority of Christian churches.

As a result, he is both fully human and totally divine, co-equal and co-eternal with God the Father and God the Son.

God teaches us that the Holy Spirit existed long before the earth was created. God said it was not good for man to be alone in Genesis 1:2 and again in Genesis 1:26, therefore He made Adam.

As a result, God created the animals and brought them to Adam. But none of them turned out to be a good fit for Adam.

 

Who is holy spirit bible verses

In the following Bible verses, we shall explain who the holy spirit is.

 

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

~ John 14:26, KJV

This portion of the bible makes us understand that the Holy Spirit is our teacher. He teaches us all things we need to know in this sinful world.

The Holy Spirit helps us to bring all things to your remembrance. He is our guide and teacher.

Whatever we need to know, all that is required of us is to ask of Him what we want.

 

John 16:13-14

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

~ John 16:13, KJV

Jesus told his disciples that when the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide them into all the truth there is. This is because the Holy Spirit is our guide.

He won’t leave out anything. Everything that the Father has is mine.

That’s what I mean when I say that the Spirit will take from what is mine and tell it to you.

 

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. ~ Romans 8:26, KJV

When we do not know what we ought to pray for, the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

In the same way, the Spirit helps our weakness.

And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

 

Mark 13:11

But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

~ Mark 13:11, KJV

This verse is one of the most comforting verses in all of Scripture for those who are discouraged.

The verse does not promise us a problem-free life, but it does promise us that the Holy Spirit will take care of us through our situations.

All that is expected of us in times of problem is for us to ask the Holy Spirit for his help and he will help us.

 

Isaiah 11:2

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

~ Isaiah 11:2

Isaiah 11:2 describes the peace, harmony, and prosperity all mankind will enjoy during Jesus’ millennial reign all with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Here, we have seen that the spirit brings wisdom, understanding, rest and every good thing with him.

 

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

~ Acts 1:8, KJV

We’re ordinary people with ordinary lives. But through the power of God’s Holy Spirit, we’re made extraordinary, empowered to be agents of change in our world.

That’s because Kingdom living isn’t flashy or exciting, it’s just all about being real, being authentic and putting others first, no matter what they look like, who they are or where they come from.

The fruits of the Spirit are the signature qualities of a Christian living life to the fullest and committing to Jesus Christ.

Who is the holy spirit and what does he do bible verse

 

John 14:16

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

~ John 14:16, KJV

Jesus was the visible image of the invisible God, and He had promised His disciples that He would send another Comforter to live with them eternally when He returned to the Father in heaven.

As the reality that Jesus was actually leaving them to return to the Father in heaven began to dawn on the disciples’ sceptical minds, the Lord Jesus introduced the Person of the Holy Spirit of Truth who will be their Helper, who He promised would be with them forever.

Jesus had just told His people that whoever sees Him sees the Father, and so He told them once more. I’ll go to the Father and ask Him to send you another Helper who will be with you forever.

 

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

~ John 14:26, KJV

Christ’s departure from this earth was rapidly nearing. Jesus had already promised His followers that He would ask the Father to send them a Helper who would be like Him which is the Holy Spirit of truth, who would act as their Advocate and plead their cause before the Father.

But that the Spirit of Whom He spoke would always be with them, and that this Holy Spirit of Truth would take up residence within them, and abide in them forever.

The Lord Jesus elaborates on this truth by assuring them that the Holy Spirit will be their great Teacher and will teach them all things, as well as bringing all that Christ Himself has taught them back to their minds.

 

Mark 13:11

But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

~ Mark 13:11, KJV

When you are facing a crisis, the Holy Spirit will provide you with a defence that your foes will be unable to refute.

The Holy Spirit’s equipping serves as a witness to others of Christ’s reality. His opponents “could not withstand the intelligence and the Spirit with which he was speaking” when Stephen was first confronted before his imprisonment (Acts 6:10).

The council had a hard time believing such “uneducated, simple guys” could speak so eloquently when Peter and John were summoned before the Sanhedrin and presented their testimony; “and they realized [the men] had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13). The prophets were equipped by this divine power (Hebrews 1:1)

 

Power of the Holy Spirit verses

 

Luke 1:35

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

~ Luke 1:35

In this Bible verse, the Holy Spirit will be seen as one that can do the impossible. The angel Gabriel appeared to the young Mary to tell her that she had been selected to give birth to the long-awaited, prophesied Messiah, who would sit on His father David’s throne and reign over the house of Jacob for all time – that His kingdom would be an everlasting kingdom. God is, without a doubt, the God of the Unthinkable.

She learned in her heaven-sent interview that she was to be the mother of the prophesied Messiah, the sacrificial Lamb of God who was so clearly typified through Abraham’s offering of Isaac – the Seed of the Woman, spoken of in the early pages of Genesis – and that her Son was to save His people from their sins.

 

 

Romans 8:11

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

~ Romans 8:11

The holy spirit in this chapter explains the practical advantages we acquire as Christians, how to live godly in Christ Jesus, the role of the Law in our life, and how the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the Law of sin and death. And in this section, we’ll learn about the incredible power of the Holy Spirit in each of our lives, as well as the power He offers us to live holy lives.

We delight to know that individuals who walk in spirit and truth have a mindset of life and serenity – brought about by the indwelling Spirit – and that we have been made alive by His grace through Christ Jesus our Lord. It describes the practical advantages we obtain.

 

Zechariah 4:6-7

Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

~ Zechariah 4:6-7

This heavenly revelation about the power of the holy spirit is as pertinent today as it was centuries ago since we must all accept that the Lord will carry out His plans, which He alone has purposed “not by might nor by power, but by the grace of God’s Spirit alone.”

Zerubbabel was not told HOW God will carry out His plans and purposes… since, like us, he could only see through a glass darkly... yet his obligation, like ours, is to live by faith in God – to trust the Lord’s Word – to believe everything God has taught us.

 

Luke 12:12

For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

~ Luke 12:12.

When you are going through temptations, accused of wrongdoings, and brought to the judges, you have been assured that in such moments, the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

All you need to do is ask God for his grace and also believe in his name and he shall come through for you.

 

Romans 8:26-27

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. ~ Romans 8:26-27

The holy spirit is seen as our helper in this bible portion. He helps us in our infirmities because sometimes we are depressed with our issues and we don’t know what to pray for, but the holy spirit comes to help us.

The Holy Spirit is also seen as an intercessor for the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings that cannot be uttered.

 

Frequently asked questions on who is holy spirit bible verses

Is Holy Spirit a person?

The Holy Spirit is a mystery to many people. Some regard Him as an impersonal power or influence, while others reject His existence. Still, others are unsure who or what the Holy Spirit is. The Bible, on the other hand, is extremely explicit on this point: the Holy Spirit is a person, the Holy Trinity’s Third Person.

What exactly is the Holy Spirit?

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” says Matthew 28:19. The Holy Spirit is a unique divine person who is one with God and Jesus (John 14:26).

Pneuma is the Greek word for spirit. The Hebrew word for this is ruach. Both terms mean “wind” or “breath.” They depict something that cannot be seen but may be detected through its effects. The Holy Spirit is unseen, but when we are filled with Him, His power and presence are felt in our lives.

Who was full of the Holy Spirit?

The disciples were infused with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, according to the Bible (Acts 2:4). Many people in other places got the Holy Spirit as a result of this. Some Samaritans, for example, were filled with the Holy Spirit after hearing Philip preach about Jesus (Acts 8:14-17).

But what about individuals who were already believers in God prior to Jesus’ arrival on the scene? Did they live in the presence of the Holy Spirit?

Before Jesus died and rose again, no one in the Bible is characterized as being “infused with the Holy Spirit.” The Old Testament prophets used God’s power to speak God’s messages to people and foretell future events, but this was not the same as being filled with His Spirit.

God would pour forth His Spirit on everyone, according to the prophet Joel. This would occur after Jesus’ ascension into heaven (Joel 2:28-32; Acts 2:16-21).
