Now we want to talk a little bit about the doctrine of the Holy Spirit and I don't want to get bogged down and spend weeks and weeks and weeks defining every facet of the Spirit's ministry, but to basically look at what is important and critical and revealed in Scripture instructive for us and effective and necessary for our spiritual lives with regard to the Spirit of God. We have to assume a few things and one is that we're going to assume that you understand that the Holy Spirit is God. In fact, in Hebrews 9:14 He is referred to as the eternal Spirit. And so that in itself affirms that He is God who is eternal and who alone is eternal. Genesis 1:2 tells us that He was the one who moved across the formless deep and brought form to it. Therefore He is the Creator.

Scripture also tells us that He is the divine agent by which by whom the Scriptures were written, holy men wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. There are Trinitarian passages in the Scripture, such as the baptism of Christ where you have the Spirit descending as a dove, you have the Father speaking out of heaven, and you have the Son present. And so God is not just one God who appears in three different persons at various times, He is at all times three, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We understand then that when we talk about the Holy Spirit, we're talking about God...God, the third person of the Trinity, fully God, worthy of praise, worthy of worship, worthy of all that we render to Christ and all that we render to God the Father....
