Who Is the Holy Spirit? The most important thing we have to realize about the Holy Spirit is that he is not supposed to be referred to as “It”, because he is a person. A person with emotions, will, and intelligence. On many occasions in the bible we see the bible refer to the Holy Spirit as a person who is personal with his followers.

The comforter Jesus Christ spoke of, is of course the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit comforts us by encouraging us in our walk with the Lord.

Scripture that helps us understand the conviction of the Holy Spirit is John 16:8 which says “And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.” The third “C” Dr. Wilson mentioned is that the Holy Spirit “Convinces” us. The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus, he brings convincing grace to us. And proves to us that Jesus is truly the son of our God. The fourth “C” is that the Holy Spirit “Corrects” us. This is means the Holy Spirit guides and is our Paraclete (an Advocate and Counselor). A scripture that helps us understand how the Holy Spirit corrects us is John 14:16 when Jesus said “And I will ask the Father, and he will give another Advocate, who will never leave you”. The fifth and final “C” that Dr. Wilson talked about was that the Holy Spirit “Continues”. This simply means the Holy Spirit continues the ministry of Jesus Christ. The spirit also reveals himself to us through a number of different emblems. The Holy Spirit can be recognized through Breath and/or Wind (Genesis 1:2, Acts 2:2), a Dove (Matthew 3:16), Living Water (John 4:10), Rain (Psalms 72: 6), River (John 7:37-39), Seal or Down Payment
