THE STUDY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT The Personality of the Holy Spirit INTRODUCTION • With this lesson we begin our study of the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead. • The Holy Spirit has been sent by the Father and Son to indwell and guide believers. • Many people profess to believe in the Holy Ghost but actually they believe in God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Ghost as the Servant or errand boy. • This is false for the Holy Spirit is equal to and in no way inferior to the other two... • Others reduce the Holy Spirit to an inanimate force such as electricity which is very powerful but completely devoid of being a living person, much less God. • In this lesson we attempt to prove His personality and His deity in the next lesson. • We believe that the Holy Spirit is a living Person for He can be approached or shunned, trusted or doubted, loved or hated, adored or insulted.
