Is the Holy Spirit even with God?
Want more answers?
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever…” (John 14:16).
Taylor, we assume you are asking is the Holy Spirit equal with God. Well, there is only one God, but there are three persons in one God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Because we are not anything like God, this is a mystery that is very hard to understand. The answer to your question is, yes, the Holy Spirit is even (equal) with God because the Holy Spirit IS God. You see, after Jesus (God the Son) died on the cross, He was buried, and He rose from the dead. He did this so that you could have eternal life with Him if you trust in Him and believe in Him. After Jesus rose from the dead, He did something very special for all of us. See our Bible verse above? It says that Jesus sends a Helper, who comes from the Father, who is the Spirit of truth. Jesus sent this Helper to everyone who believes in Him. This Helper (the Holy Spirit) stays with us. He teaches us to pray. He helps us to understand the Bible. He even helps us to love and help other people (even when they don’t love us back!) The Holy Spirit is even with God . . . but He stays with us in our heart so that we have help to obey God even when that seems really, really hard!
