The Holy Spirit is Jesus’ Spirit
By Brian C. Collins
I believe in the trinity in The Triune God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit/Ghost. All Three are God all three an individual, all three one together One Almighty Being, Almighty God. A difficult concept for our human minds to fathom.
It is hard to understand that God the Father sent HIs Son to earth and His Son became a 100% human man in the flesh and was born of a virgin living a sinless life and all that time still being 100% God. Died on the cross and three days after he gave up the Ghost, He defeated death and rose from the grave and is alive today sitting at His Fathers right hand. All the while trying to remember that our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God our risen Savior is still the One Almighty God One being three individuals. How can we accept this? Only by faith and by choosing to believe.
I read Luke 23:46 (KJV) where Jesus says “into my hands I commend my Spirit, in Matthew 27:50 (KJV) it says “Jesus…yielded up the Ghost” and also in Mark 15:37 (KJV) “Jesus…gave up the Ghost”
In John 16:7-15 (KJV) Jesus tells the disciples if He doesn’t go away the Comforter will not come, the Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit.
My simple thought is that the Holy Spirit we receive when born again is the same Spirit/Ghost Jesus gave up, yielded, commend to God on the cross. God is three in one. Jesus knows what its like to be tempted and knows how to overcome temptation and knows every word that preceded out of His own mouth. So it is only natural that His Spirit can comfort us when needed and bring Bible verses to mind when we need ministered too.
This may not be anything great or illuminating to some perhaps some may even disagree with my thoughts and consider them wrong.
I do not see any fault, falsehood, or error in this line of thinking; however, I am submissive enough to God’s Word and wise enough to know my wisdom is foolishness to God So I can and will admit these are just personal thoughts that I have derived and or indirectly inferred from scripture.
It just seamed to help connect the dots for me in my mind. The gravity and vividness of the Holy Spirit which we receive upon accepting the gift of God, Salvation, and how this Spirit can be so close to us, comfort us, and speak to us.
Jesus had to give up, yield up His Ghost so that we can receive it when we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts that God hath raised Him from the dead we will be quickened, made alive by His Spirit, we shall be saved!
