The Bible Shows Us that the Holy Spirit Is God
Case 4: Trinity
Does the Bible teach that the Holy Spirit is God?
Yes. The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is God. 2 Corinthians 3:17 – Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
This Truth Makes
“The Lord is that Spirit.” This is a strong statement that Christ and the Holy Spirit are One in essence, though Paul also recognized
distinctions between them. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
The Holy Spirit is also called “the Spirit of truth.” John 14:17 – The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
When we think about the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of truth, we can begin to understand why there is liberty when He rules in someone’s heart. John 8:32 – And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
