HopeSS: The Personality of the Holy Spirit — 6 Comments

  1. Great to see you leading the discussion in such logical fashion, Jason. 🙂 I have yet to see the whole video because dear hubby reminded me not to use too much bandwidth. So I will watch the rest on satellite TV.

    I liked Pastor Derek's remarks about expressing appreciation directly to the Holy Spirit for His help and convicting power, although I think He also gets the message when I just say, "Thank you, Lord!"

      • I just noticed the sign that shows up on the video on our site:
        "Kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."

        What an appropriate reminder for North American readers who appear to be so divided along political lines! It is the Holy Spirit's work to empower us to reveal these qualities in our lives. And that will lead us to be mutually submissive one to another in love. (1 Peter 5:5) I'm thinking that if we have that spirit, we will not let political disagreements divide us.

  2. Why do these people only give us two options: impersonal force versus a personal being? The Holy Spirit is neither, but rather the mind of Christ and His life and power that flow from Him. This is all personal, because Jesus is personal, and it is a third person, or third witness, but it is still the same Comforter, Jesus Christ. There is no such thing as a third being of Diety; so worshiping this "god the spirit" is false worship.

  3. So, Malachi, who was the dove that lighted on Jesus's head after his baptism? We also heard a voice from heaven that said "This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. How could the mind of Christ become a dove?
