First let us notice God said, "Let us make man in our image.'' God is also a triune being. The Godhead is made up of the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. We must have some understanding of this mystery if we are to understand our own makeup. Perhaps through an analogy we can understand better how He can be three in one. A married man with a family is a father, a husband and a son. He is not three different men, but has three different roles. He relates to his children, wife, and parents in a different way. It is similar with the Lord. He relates to us as the Father, as the Son (Jesus), and as the Holy Spirit. God does not change; He is holy, He is spirit, He is eternal. God is one, but He has three forms, even as water can manifest as a solid, liquid, or gas, yet is still one compound. As ice, it takes a definite form and shape; as a liquid it flows freely, and as steam, it becomes vaporous. Even so, the Godhead manifests Himself so He can be seen as Jesus, felt like rivers of water as the Holy Spirit, and known as the invisible power of the Father. I read this on http://www.bible.com/devotional-detail.php?juli=2455394&dtype=Proverbs It is a very different and fascinating perception of the Lord. How do others feel about this?Faithful Shadow

The trinitarian view is that the Holy Spirit is a Person... This is completely denied and rejected by the Rev Centres and Rev fellowships... Check out the Rev Fellowship website and you find the satement " What is the Holy Spirit." ... If they held the trinitarian view then their questioning should really be stating or saying: " Who is the Holy Spirit." ......
Personally I support the trinitarian view of the personality of the Holy Spirit because there are literally hundreds of references in the New Testament that prove and attest to the personality of the Holy Spirit. Sadly the Rev fellowship think that He is just a power..
My favourite prooftext:
"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. - 2 Cor 3:17"
and another one:
"And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption - Eph 4:30"

That scripture from Corinthians is absolutely beautiful. I've never read it before. Thank you for sharing that. I suppose it's very hard to visualise what it all is. Mostly, I can just feel His presence in my heart. That is what is so undeniable. FS
