We are baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Several biblical references tell us about being “baptized with the Holy Spirit,” “receiving the Holy Spirit,” or being “born of the Spirit.” We also read stories of the Holy Spirit enabling people to do extraordinary, often very strange things!
Sometimes the idea of being influenced by a spirit, even if it is the Holy Ghost, can be intimidating. After all, Jesus’ description of the Spirit to Nicodemus made Him sound rather unpredictable and uncontrollable. But the Holy Spirit is a gift of Jesus Christ Himself, and is meant to be our Comfort.
This iFollow Bible Study Guide will take you on an in-depth journey of how Scripture describes the Holy Spirit and the Trinity. You’ll also learn about how to test a spirit, the Holy Spirit’s relationship to us, and how the Holy Spirit helped form the Adventist Church.
