The End? Or Just The Beginning?
As part of His creation, God’s Spirit dwells with humans. Think of it as genetic DNA and RNA traits being passed from generation to generation through offspring. Although we possess a remnant of His Spirit when we are born, our spirit does not yet commune with His. Our spirit is present but ‘inactive.’ It’s missing the ‘spark’ of recognition and surrender. That spark is acceptance of Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
For an inactive spirit to become active it is necessary for there to be a ‘conduit spark’ between God’s Holy Spirit and ours. This spark is the spirit and person of Jesus Christ. Because the spirit of Jesus is the Spirit of the Father, Jesus’ Spirit is the Holy Spirit. Three separate ‘personalities’ of and by The Holy Spirit form the three ‘identities’ of God: Father, Son and Spirit. One Holy Spirit, three specific functioning entities. In relation to us as; Paternal, Brother, Same Spirit connection (between three, and us).
A singular Holy Spirit of the Trinitarian Godhead having three separate functioning roles. One [Father] cannot be in the presence of sin. The second [Son] can be in the presence of sin because his (Holy) Spirit volunteered to assume the form and responsibilities of becoming a human man. The third is spiritual ‘breath’ (the power and force of creation) through the ‘Word’.
This singular Holy Spirit, with three separate identities, functioning as three separate personalities is the Spirit who joins ours when invited by every neophyte believer (new believer) in Jesus Christ. Every believer in Jesus as the Christ/Messiah, receives The Holy Spirit of the Father, through the Son, by way of the breath (Word), to be spiritual counselor and guide.
Although the Holy Spirit as Father cannot co-mingle with humans, that same Spirit in the Son can, because the Spirit has agreed to serve in that form and manner. Think of it in terms of genealogy again. We each have a biological mother and father. Jesus had a mother (Mary), with the Holy Spirit serving as father. (John 1:1-3)
Jesus has multiple titles, roles, and responsibilities. We will be looking at several in relation to us, however, all can be summed up in the title, “Son of God” and responsibility as “Savior.” Within the broad scope of these multiple titles and roles, think of our three identifiers: servant, sacrifice and mediator as man, savior, and advocate.
