Names and Titles of the Holy Spirit:  Look Again In the following, we will study some of the recorded names and titles given to the Holy Spirit. His fingerprints, heart, mind, and will can be found from Genesis to Revelation. He is the third Person of the Triune Godhead. His power and influence are made clear throughout the Bible. He regenerates, dwells with us, teaches and brings to remembrance, bears witness, convinces of sin, guides, speaks, declares, inspires and illumines--speaking through the Scriptures; He sends out workers, forbids certain actions, intercedes, sanctifies, and more. He has had, and continues to have personal relationship with many. He dwells in true believers [the elect] of Christ as a Comforter, Counselor, and Advocate (teacher) to recall the things taught by Jesus Christ, to testify of Jesus, and to reprove/convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He guides true believers of Christ into all truth; will not  speak of Himself, but only that which He hears from above, reveals events to come, and glorifies the Lord by showing the things of Christ. 1.  Consider His personality and Divinity, and His co-operation in the work of redemption, with the Father and Son. 2.  Compare the three following verses.
1 John 2:20, "But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things."  John 14:26, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance." with, John 16:13-14, "Howbeit, when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He shall glorify me (Jesus) for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you."  "The Spirit is The Truth."  1 John 5:6.    “The Spirit is The Life-Producer, or Life-Maker.” John 6:63 ____________    1.  He is called God.  Acts 5:3-4, 1 Cor.3:16, with 1 Cor.6:19. 2. He is called “the LORD Jehovah."  Aramaic Bible in Plain English
But The Spirit is THE LORD JEHOVAH, and wherever The Spirit of THE LORD JEHOVAH is, there is freedom.  2 Corinthians 3:17.  [Moreover, the Lord (kurios) the Spirit (pneuma) is; moreover, where the Spirit of Kurios [is], freedom/liberty.   Compare, Acts 28:25, "Well spake the Holy Spirit by E-sa-ias (Isaiah.)"  with,  Isa.6:8-9, "I (Isaiah) heard the Voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?

8.  How we may obtain the Holy Spirit. a.  In answer to prayer.  James 1:5-7. Luke 11:13, "how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?"  b.  By Faith. Eph.1:13. Gal.3:2-3-14. John 7:38-39, Jesus said he that believeth on me, --- out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake He of the Spirit." c. By repentance and obedience.  Acts 2:38.

12.  Eph.4:30, "grieve not the Holy Spirit of God." From the above we may understand that the Holy Spirit is a distinct person in the Godhead. His titles, offices, and work support this argument. It shows Him to be a Divine Entity, equal in power and glory with the Father and Son concerning the creation, and the salvation of mankind. His work is both ordinary, and extraordinary, this by immediate inspiration, and by His regeneration, and sanctifying influences.  He will inform us and remind us that we are the children of God. He illuminates the Scriptures, the Word of God.  The Holy Spirit is God, a Person.
