Through studying the last couple of weeks, I have been sitting on some scriptures that show the Holy Spirit’s attributes.
Omnipresent– Psalm 139:7–10 (NIV)-Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I go from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths you are there. If I rise up on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, Even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
Omniscient– I Corinthians 2:10-11 (NIV)-For God has revealed it to us by HIS Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the mans spirit with in him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except for the Spirit of God.
Omnipotent– Luke 1:35-37 (NIV)-The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.”
Holy-Romans 1:4 (NIV)-and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Eternal-Hebrews 9:8(NIV)-The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still standing. (read Hebrews 9:1-8)
I know that we all know these things of GOD, and we all know that HE is the THREE IN ONE, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but I am setting out to show with scripture that we have been sealed with the very Spirit of God..and that voice calling from within is all God and all Spirit..HE has every right to speak to us in whatever area of our life HE wants to move in, and yet we do not grasp HIM as GOD or the gift that HE is to us. How can I say that?? So often we sense the Spirit telling us NO , don’t do it..and we decide at that moment, we do not know if we know the voice of God, or have ever heard it..sooo we would rather do exactly what HE just said no too. When thinking about who HE is, and What HE is capable of, and where HE lives…OH MY! Seriously!! How different will today be just knowing that HE is there, how different will my choices be just knowing HE is all knowing, How different will I choose to use my body knowing that the HOLY ONE is dwelling in it. ahhhhh love this study, and believe it is time for us to know the third one of the Trinity, who is a precious gift to us, to enable us to be Overcomers. Peace, next week I plan on setting up some more verses on the actions HE was sent to do, and whether or not we are allowing HIM.
