7 Incredible Things About The Holy Spirit and What He Can Do For You


[b]The power of the Holy Spirit is the power of God. The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, has appeared throughout Scripture as a Being through, and [u]by whom[/u], great works of power are made manifest. His power was first seen in the act of creation, for it was by His power the world came into being:

Genesis 1:1–2 ~ " 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the [u]Spirit of God[/u] moved upon the face of the waters."

The Holy Spirit will lead you to the truth: “Therefore, my children, pray so that the Holy Spirit can lead you into truth, can help you to come to know it, and through that knowledge of the truth that you may be one with the Heavenly Father and with my Son.”

God gives His followers the Holy Spirit so that we may know Him better. Since the Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit, He knows the thoughts of God and reveals those thoughts to believers. The Holy Spirit opens our eyes to the hope of salvation and the inheritance of eternal life we can have in Christ.

The Holy Spirit does many things in the lives of believers. He is the believers’ Helper (John 14:26). He indwells believers and seals them with His Spirit, until the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit assists believers in prayer (Jude 1:20) and “intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God” (Romans 8:26–27).

The Holy Spirit regenerates and renews the believer (Titus 3:5). At the moment of salvation, the Holy Spirit dwells with the believer, and we become one with the Body of Christ (Romans 6:3). Believers receive the new birth by the power of the Spirit (John 3:5–8). The Spirit comforts believers with fellowship and joy as they go through a hostile world (1 Thessalonians 1:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14). The Holy Spirit, in His mighty power, fills believers with “all joy and peace” as they trust the Lord. It is a peace and joy which passes all understanding. (Philippians 4:7)

The Holy Spirit is also a gift-giver. “There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them” (1 Corinthians 12:4). The spiritual gifts that believers possess are given by the Holy Spirit as He determines in His wisdom (verse 11)

The Holy Spirit also does work among unbelievers. Jesus promised that He would send the Holy Spirit to “convict the world concerning sin and righteousness” (John 16:8). The Spirit testifies of Christ (John 15:26), pointing people to the Lord. Currently, the Holy Spirit is also restraining sin and combatting “the secret power of lawlessness” in the world. This action keeps the rise of the Anti-christ at bay (2 Thessalonians 2:6–10).

The Holy Spirit gives believers wisdom, by which we can understand God. “The Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also, no one comprehends the thoughts of God, [u]except through the Spirit of God[/u]” (1 Corinthians 2:10–11).

Since all who have accepted Jesus as Savior have been given the amazing gift of God’s Spirit to dwell in them, they can comprehend the thoughts of God, as revealed in the Scripture. The Spirit helps us understand. This is wisdom from God, rather than wisdom from man. [u]No amount of human knowledge can ever replace the Holy Spirit’s teaching[/u] (1 Corinthians 2:12–13).[/b]
