Motivated Spirituality

Deacon Keith FournierThe Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity, is referred to in a rich variety of ways in the Scriptures.  As we contemplate the various biblical titles and descriptions of the Holy Spirit, compiled by Deacon Keith Fournier, we'll be surprised at how much more insight we'll gain into who He is and what He does.  I encourage you to meditate on these Scriptures in your prayer time and pray to the Holy Spirit using these various titles.

Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio Counselor

And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another COUNSELOR to be with you forever - the Spirit of truth

Do not cast me from your presence or take your HOLY SPIRIT from me (Psalm 51:11).

 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised HOLY SPIRIT, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession - to the praise of his glory (Ephesians 1:13-14).

 And do not grieve the HOLY SPIRIT of God with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30).

Power of the Most High

 

The angel answered, 'The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the POWER OF THE MOST HIGH will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God' (Luke 1:35).

Spirit of Adoption

You did not receive a spirit of slavery leading you back into fear, but a SPIRIT OF ADOPTION through which we cry out, "Abba!" (that is, "Father") (Romans 8:15 - New American Bible).

Spirit of Christ

Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the SPIRIT OF CHRIST in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow (1 Peter 1:10-11).

Spirit of Counsel

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him - the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the SPIRIT OF COUNSEL and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2).

Spirit of the Father

But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the SPIRIT OF YOUR FATHER speaking through you (Matthew 10:19-20).

 Spirit of Fire

Our God is a CONSUMING FIRE (Hebrews 12:29).

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with FIRE (Luke 3:16).

Spirit of Glory

If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the SPIRIT OF GLORY and of God rests on you (1 Peter 4:14).

Spirit of God

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the SPIRIT OF GOD was hovering over the waters (Genesis 1:2).

Spirit of Grace and Supplication

And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants ofJerusalem a SPIRIT OF GRACE AND SUPPLICATION (Zech.12:10).

Spirit of Holiness

...regarding His son, who as to His human nature was a descendant of David,...and who through the SPIRIT OF HOLINESS was declared with power to be the Son of God by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 1:3-4).

Spirit of Judgment

The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a SPIRIT OF JUDGEMENT and a Spirit of Fire (Isaiah 4:4).

Spirit of Knowledge

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him - the spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE and of the fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2).

Spirit of Life

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the SPIRIT OF LIFE set me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2).

Spirit of Power

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him- the spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the SPIRIT Of COUNSEL AND OF POWER, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2).

You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you (Acts 1:8).

Spirit of Prophecy

At this I fell at his feet to worship him.  But he said to me, "Do not do it!  I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus.  Worship God!  For the testimony of Jesus is the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY" (Revelations 19:10).

Spirit of Sonship

For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the SPIRIT OF SONSHIP.  And by him we cry, "Abba, Father" (Romans 8:15).

Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him - the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the spirit of counsel and of power, the SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE AND OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD (Isaiah 11:2).

Spirit of the Son

Because you are sons, God sent the SPIRIT OF HIS SON into our hearts, the spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father" (Galatians 4:6).

Spirit of the Sovereign Lord

The SPIRIT OF THE SOVEREIGN LORD is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release for the prisoners (Isaiah 61:1).

Spirit of Truth

But when he, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, comes, he will guide you into all truth.  He will not speak on his own; He will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come (John 16:13).

Spirit of Understanding

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him - the SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND OF UNDERSTANDING, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2).

Spirit of Wisdom

Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me, restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a WILLING SPIRIT to sustain me (Psalm 51:12).
