Who Is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is really a person, a divine person. He is on the same level as God the Father and Christ Jesus, and like God the Father and Christ Jesus, He is a distinct personality. Yet all three of these distinct individuals comprise the one and only true God. In the same sense, God is one, yet He is three—Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and all through the Bible, there are references that indicate the plurality.
The most famous of these references is in Genesis 1:26, which states, The God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” They are of the same species – God yet their personalities and functions are completely different.
