Subject 12 : The Faith of the Apostles Creed

● God the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit Is Not Just A Power, But He Also Has Character

The Holy Spirit, “Ruwach Qadowsh” in Hebrew, and “Πνεῦμα ἅγιον” (pronounced pnevma aghion) in Greek, is the third Person of the Trinity.
The Apostles’ Creed makes a very terse confession of faith in the Holy Spirit, only stating, “I believe in the Holy Spirit.” It is very important that the saints know correctly who the Holy Spirit is and what His works are. And we must also know about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which will be discussed later part of this section.
When we confess that we believe in the Holy Spirit, before we think of some mystical power possessed by Him, we must first pay particular attention to the fact that we receive the Holy Spirit only when we believe in God the Father and the works of the Son. Many Christians have a tendency to think that they can receive the Holy Spirit whenever and as frequently as they need Him, but this is a profoundly mistaken thinking. We must realize that the Holy Spirit is not an angel, but He is God to whom we must given our worship and praise. Like this, we can receive the Holy Spirit when we believe in God the Father and the works of the Son.
