Who is the Holy Spirit? Let's put aside what men have told us and look at scriptures. After all, God didn't give us this book for nothing! Luke 3:22 (New King James Version) And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." Matthew 3:16 (New King James Version) When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. John 1:32 (New King James Version) And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. In the above we see that the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) descended in bodily form as a dove and not some third person in the God head. Right? Now let's take a look at something else. Mark 13:11 (New King James Version) But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. You'll notice that it doesn't say who the Holy Spirit is, only that He will give you what to say. Now let's take a look at Matthew 10:18-20 NKJV Matthew 10:18-20 (New King James Version) You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. Notice that Matthew is writing about the same thing as Mark but that he goes on to say, "the Spirit of your Father". Thus we see that the Holy Spirit is in fact the Father's Spirit and not some third person in the God head. We also see in the following that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and not from the Son. John 15:26 (New King James Version) “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. Our Catholic brothers/sisters (Trinitarians) often point to 1 John 5:7 (New King James Version) 1 John 5:7 (New King James Version) For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. Thus they reason that the Holy Spirit is a third person. However, from reading the above scriptures it should be clear that it isn't saying that the Holy Spirit is a third person but simply that God's Spirit also bears record in heaven. Let me remind you that these are the same people who misinterpreted the scriptures and basically had the whole world believing that the world was flat. Is it any wonder then that they would misinterpret this scripture (As they do the others) and have the the whole world follow them into error? Think about it. Take a look at this. Acts 2:18 (New King James Version) And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. Acts 19:6 (New King James Version) And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
