To begin with in discussing about the Blessed Holy Spirit, let us first reconfirmed our faith and trust on our Lord Jesus Christ. If we doubt the words of Christ, then there is no reason to believe the Holy Spirit. We only came to know the Holy Spirit through the message of Christ. He told His disciples about the coming advent of the Hoy Spirit after His departure to be with His Father. In short, without Christ means no Holy Spirit to know of. Where can we get an accurate information about the Holy Spirit aside from Christ?
The Holy Spirit is our Helper according to our Lord Jesus Christ. We must believe Him for telling us this truth that the Holy Spirit is indeed a Helper, to some He is a Comforter. The existence of the Holy Spirit depends on the very words of Jesus Christ. It is true that they co-existed from the beginning but only Jesus Christ made the Holy Spirit known to the world, His nature, attributes and works. The Holy Spirit is true and real because because in the first place, Jesus Christ revealed Him to us through His words.
It is important to know the Holy Spirit intimately at the same level of intimacy with our Lord Jesus Christ. The reality of the Spirit being must consumed our thoughts and minds. If Christ is truly gone as He ascended to heaven, then we have only the Holy Spirit to rely on. We are not orphans because of the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Now can we imagine if there is no Holy Spirit at all? We will be helpless and out in the cold like orphans without guardians to protect us. Thank you Lord, for sending us the Holy Spirit who now live in us forever.
I shall continue the study on the Holy Spirit in the next installment of my presentation.
