11For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God's Spirit. 12But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God. 13Which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the HolySpirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things. (1 Corinthians 2:11-13)
The Eternal Creator is known to us, not only as a Father, and as a Son, but as a Wind, an Advocate, One Who remains unseen, but Whose presence is felt by those who believe in and honor Him. This One is He Who was promised to stay with the Assembly, once the Lord Jesus returned to heaven.
Looking at the original meanings of "holy" and "spirit," we see that the HolySpirit is the breath or wind of God Whom He has "set apart" for a special purpose."
Christ said that He would send "another Advocate" (John 14:16); there are two main words for "another" in the Greek language. One means "another of the same kind" and the other means "another of a different kind."
The word used for the HolySpirit, in relation to Christ, is the former—another of the same kind. The HolySpirit can be known just as Jesus can be known. He can be talked to and talk back to us, He can guide us, give us strength, reveal God's will, grant us peace, encourage us in times of hardships, and do everything else that Christ did on earth.
This study will include, among other areas, studies of the the seven-fold ministry and existence of the Spirit of God:
The Spirit of Yahweh will rest on him: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh. (Isaiah 11:2)
I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. (Revelation 5:6)
There is much to learn about this Awesome One. I invite you to read the studies below, and discover the One Who is your life and breath. Come close to the Spirit of God, Yahweh's Breath and Wind, and the Other Comforter of Whom the Son of God spoke.
