Who and What is the Holy Spirit?

How did the Holy Spirit get into all this? Is he God Too? Where was he in the Old Testament and What is he doing today?

Here Goes...

The Holy Spirit is the 3rd Person of God. He is not vague or unfeeling, He is involved in our lives. He is equal to God in everyway. The Bible has the following:

1 Corinthians 2:11: “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.” Here it shows that He is in God and is God.

Romans 15:30, He shows the ability to love: “Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;”

Romans 8:14, He shows us direction: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

And He helps us to pray: Romans 8:26, “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”


So, even though He is Spirit, He is involved very much in our lives as Father, taking care of us, guiding us, helping us in all our activities.

It is hard to explain the Trinity but one can compare it to an Egg. It has 3 parts: the yolk, the white and the shell but it is one Egg, all doing different things for one purpose… to feed. Same here. Hope this helps a bit.
