The Holy Spirit has a role and is a centrally powerful expression of the trinitarian life of God. The almighty Father sent the Son, Jesus Christ, into the world and empowered him by consecrating him with the Spirit. At that moment, when the Son ascended to the Father after his earthly mission of redemption and reconciliation was complete, the Spirit was sent to continue his work through those who have been made alive to him in the world. The relational Being of God, who is the foundation for creation, redemption, and reconciliation, requires all three persons of the Godhead.
This was affirmed in the Old Testament, where the Spirit of God contributed to the creation of the heavens and the earth, revealed God’s word and eventually, inspire prophetic messengers. The Holy Spirit empowers us to live a new quality of life; he cleanses and gets rid of as we submit to His authority and control. He provides us with spiritual gifts and circumstances to build up other people in the faith. The Holy Spirit is not an it, but a living and loving person. “Jesus called him the Paraclete, a name that means “one called alongside” to help (John 14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7). The translation for “Paracletos” is Helper, Comforter, Counselor, Advocate, Intercessor, Supporter, and Strengthener.
