The Holy Spirit is part of the Godhead. We are created in His image.
We are a spirit and we live in a body and we have a soul. Jesus is the flesh God used to walk the earth (now, we are the flesh Jesus walks the earth in, through the Holy Spirit). The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. God is the soul, the thoughts, will and emotions, the Godhead!
God created man in His image, and they were one spirit. When man disobeyed God in eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, man gave authority to Satan and disconnected from life with God. Man’s spirit became connected to the devil. Then because of the law of “like begets like,” every person born after that became like his or her new father or master, Satan. Their spirit was dead to God and they were under Satan’s dominion instead of Satan under their authority, subduing him and ruling over him. That is why a person needs to be “BORN AGAIN.” When you ask Jesus to be your Lord, you are born again into the family of God and out of the family of Satan. Your SPIRIT again has the God life in it and you are connected to God. God becomes your Father.
Let’s get back to the Holy Spirit. So we know that the Holy Spirit is part of the Godhead. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all one God, just different functions and parts. If you look at an egg, the shell, yoke and white are all an egg, just different parts. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the same.
You could say that the muscle of God is the Holy Spirit. The ministry of Jesus was to first pay the price for our treason or sin, and redeem us from all the curse of sin and death.
The next was to demonstrate how a child of God was supposed to walk on earth in the kingdom of God, destroying the works of the devil, bringing JUSTICE. Now He is in heaven interceding for us. He sent down the Holy Spirit as His representative to live in us and empower us to take the kingdom of God to do His will on earth as it is in heaven.
When do we first see the Holy Spirit? In Gen 1:2 He was hovering over the face of the waters when God was speaking the world into existences. God spoke and the Holy Spirit did it. In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit’s ministry was limited because man was still living in his or her sin, there was no redeemer. The Holy Spirit came and went according to man’s faithfulness to obey God and follow the law. Today when a person accepts Jesus’ gift of redemption, the Holy Spirit comes to live in and abide in that person.
The Holy Spirit is God inside of YOU, He is for everyone!
