Precious Holy Spirit

"Spirit." This world is into the “new age” look at spirit and spirit life. The enemy likes to take truth and pervert it. The Word teaches that God is Spirit and we must communicate with Him spirit to Spirit. Our God is three-in-one. We were made in His image and we are spirit, soul and body. Our Creator God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When we die our body decays, but we live on with our soul (mind, will, and emotions) and our spirit. This is what survives into eternity.

We’ve talked about Father God and about Jesus. Now lets do a little research on Holy Spirit. We learn about Him as written in the Word of God first in the Old Testament, for example:

Isaiah 63:11
Then he remembered the days of old,
Moses and his people, saying:
“Where is He who brought them up out of the sea
With the shepherd of His flock?
Where is He who put His Holy Spirit within them,

The New Testament also spoke of Holy Spirit:

1 Corinthians 2:10-12 NLV
God has shown these things to us through His Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit Who looks into all things, even the secrets of God, and shows them to us.
11 Who can know the things about a man, except a man’s own spirit that is in him? It is the same with God. Who can understand Him except the Holy Spirit?

12 We have not received the spirit of the world. God has given us His Holy Spirit that we may know about the things given to us by Him.

Holy Spirit inhabits us when we choose to honor and obey our God:

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLV)
19 Do you not know that your body is a house of God where the Holy Spirit lives? God gave you His Holy Spirit. Now you belong to God. You do not belong to yourselves. 20 God bought you with a great price. So honor God with your body. You belong to Him.

More New Testament information about Holy Spirit

2 Corinthians 1:22 [He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts
as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].

Ephesians 1:13New Life Version (NLV)
13 The truth is the Good News. When you heard the truth, you put your trust in Christ. Then God marked you by giving you His Holy Spirit as a promise.

Ephesians 4:30 (MSG) Don’t grieve God. Don’t break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted.

1 Thessalonians 4:8 (NKJV)
Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man,
but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.

1 John 4:13 (NLV)
13 He has given us His Spirit. This is how we live by His help and He lives in us.

Now we can see the Word teaches us about the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is God and He actively lives in us when we choose to serve God. His indwelling causes our bodies to actually become a temple of the Holy Spirit. So it is important that we take special care of our bodies and live righteously in them. As 1 John 4:13 says, we have God’s Spirit in us, and because of this He helps us live a righteous life. Searching more deeply into this gift of God, we see that Holy Spirit living in us is a most intimate part of our God relationship. Can you sense the depth of this? He Himself indwells us bringing us into this innermost cherished relationship with Him. We honor Holy Spirit, as a precious gift and must never take this gift for granted!

We love and honor Holy Spirit for who He is~ God Himself, part of the Three-in-One. He is how God lives in each one of us who choose Him. He lives actively in us to help us live righteous, powerful, victorious lives!


Do you have an intimate relationship with Holy Spirit? Have you chosen to accept Jesus as savior and thus receive Holy Spirit into your life?
