Who is He?
Locations & Times

The Bible never refers to "Him" as "it."

"Parakletos" = Helper, Intercessor, Consoler, Advocate, or Comforter!
1.He's my Helper

The Church is better now with the Holy Spirit present than when Jesus was on this earth, explaining the scriptures to us, preaching the gospel, healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead!

How the Holy Spirit helps us:

Audio Podcast

An Audio Podcast of each talk will be available here within 24 hours after the live event.
The Holy Spirit is the One who convicts us of sin and brings us to Christ!
1 Corinthians 12:3
He convicts or convinces us that Jesus has paid for our sin in full and that we are now righteous by His grace!
John 12:31; John 14:30
The Holy Spirit convicts or convinces us that Satan, who WAS the ruler of this world, has been judged and cast out!
2. He's my Friend
He is a kind, compassionate, gentle, sensitive, wonderful person! He is the only one who can empower us to win the whole world to Christ and Satan knows it, so he makes the Church afraid of Him.
Acts 1:8

4 benefits of having the Holy Spirit as your friend: Power, Love, Fruit, Gifts
Don’t let an abuse or a misuse of one of the gifts cause you to shy away from a full experience and a daily walk with the Holy Spirit.
3. He's my God
John 14:16; John 14:26; John 15:26; Luke 3:22; Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-4
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit all serve each other and defer to one another!
