I agree with all of the below information, but could you describe the type of person the Holy Ghost is in a few words?
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Gal 5:22-23).
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
“Wilderness…shall be glad” – the personification of nature is common in Isaiah (see 33:9, 44:23, 55:12).
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
“Lebanon…Carmel…Sharon” – fertile areas renowned for their beautiful trees and foliage (see note on 33:9).
“Glory of the LORD” – in the great transformation just announced (see 6:3 and note).
3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with recompense; he will come and save you.
“Be strong, fear not” – cf. God’s words of encouragement to Joshua in Josh 1:6-7, 9, 18.
“God will come” – similar language is used of the coming of the Messiah (see 62:11; cf. Rev 22:12).
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
“Eyes…ears” – see 29:18, 32:3, 42:7 and notes. Spiritual and physical healing is also linked together in Christ’s ministry (see Matt 11:5).
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
“Lame man leap…tongue of the dumb sing” – signs of the Messianic age (see Matt 12:22; Acts 3:7-8).
“Water…streams” – see 32:2 and note. Cf. God’s provision of water in Ex 17:6; 2 Kgs 3:15-20.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
“The way of holiness” – the way set apart for those who are holy; only the redeemed (v. 9) could use it. in ancient times, certain roads between temples were open only to those who were ceremonially pure.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up there on, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
“Lion…beast” – sometimes wild animals made travel dangerous (see Deut 8:15; Jdg 14:5).
“Redeemed” – those the Lord had delivered from bondage (cf. 1:27, 51:10,62:12; Lev 25:47-48; Deut 7;8).
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
“Come to Zion with songs” – as the Israelites did when they returned from Babylonian exile (see Ps 126).
So tell me about King Hezekiah, is he a good guy or a bad guy? Did he walk with You or was he a sissy and bow down to the world like our president?
Who is the Holy Ghost? The Holy Ghost is God. The Father and Jesus is also God, but there is only one God. All three of them are different people, and they are people.
Some people say that He is the third person of the trinity because the saying goes, “The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost.” He’s not the third person, He is the third name spoken. They are all one and the same but different. That doesn’t seem possible to our little minds, but God can do anything:
“For with God nothing shall be impossible” (Lk 1:37).
Some people say we have three Gods or that we have one God with three personalities, but no:
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (1 Jn 5:7).
We don’t hear much about the Holy Ghost, nor see, but then again you can experience Him if you want to. His name fits Him well.
Before Jesus was crucified He said to His disciples:
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you” (Jn 14:26).
Due to those words, one might think it is only the Holy Ghost that’s doing anything, and maybe He is, I don’t knows, but I seriously doubt it. Because I know they are all here and active at all times, as the Father and the Holy Ghost had been with Jesus:
“For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Col 3:9).
If you have given your life to Jesus then you now have all three of them in you. Whether you communicate with them or not it up to you. But I can guarantee if you truly believe in Jesus and walk His way, they are all there waiting to hear from you.
“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believes not the record that God gave his Son” (1 Jn 5:9-10).
Many say that the Father and the Holy Ghost are just spirits, this is untrue, they are people. We were made to be like Him and we are not spirits, but people:
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” (Gen 1:26).
We are not gods and never will be, but we have His likeness. You may say that doesn’t mean God’s a person. Some cults like the Jehovah’s Witnesses say that the Holy Spirit is nothing more than a force. Of course we must consider the source. That belief is as true as a Catholic priest can forgive sin.
Jesus was a person and He is also God:
“In the beginning was he Word, and the Words was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
“And the Word was made flesh…” (1 Jn 1:1-2 and 14).
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh?” (1 Tim 3:16).
When the Bible speaks of the Spirit of God it is the Holy Ghost being spoken of. The Holy Ghost is there with you to guide you, to prompt you to do or not to do something. God knows what is best for us.
“The Spirit itself beareth witness without Spirit, that we are the children of God” (Rom 8:16).
“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father” (Gal 4:6).
There are times when the Holy Ghost will prompt you to do or not to do something. Sometimes the prompting to do something may appear to be foolish or not profitable, but we need to listen to the Holy Ghost, not to ourselves:
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Prov 3:5).
I say this not just because of what I read in the Bible, but through numerous experiences. My first and greatest experience with the Holy Ghost was in 2007 and it was not a pleasing event, nor did I want to participate, but I did and I can’t even begin to explain how fabulously happy I am that I listened to Him.
I don’t question God why I should or shouldn’t do something, when He asks me to do something I do it. Of course I am human so I have asked God why I should own this domain and I have not received an answer, but it doesn’t matter, He told me to purchase it. Never question God, the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost is such an incredible person that a man, an evil man at that, tried to purchase Him:
“And when Simon saw that through laying on the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money.
Saying, Give me also this power that on whomsoever I lay hands, He may receive the Holy Ghost.
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou has thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money” (Acts 8:18-20 – for the complete story see Acts 8:5-24).
As Jesus said, the Holy Ghost will remind you of things that He had told you. Jesus wasn’t talking only about what He had told His disciples, He will also tell you thing that you won’t remember or maybe only your spirit hears.
The Holy Ghost will also tell you what you need to pray for to have a better life:
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Rom 8:26).
