What Is The Role Of The Holy Spirit?

The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is one of three persons in the trinity. ( Acts 5:3-4) He is fully God, just as God the Father and Jesus are. The Bible also teaches that He convicts people of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He helps Christians to understand the Bible. ( 1 Corinthians 2:12-14) pray (Romans 8:26-27), and to have victory over sin. (Galatians 5:16+23; Ephesians 5:18,, He also give believers spiritual gifts and ministers to believers here on earth in so many different ways. This is the Holy Spirit’s ministry today.

But the question is “What is the role of the Holy Spirit?” What does He do in heaven?

Holy Spirit Within The Trinity

There are four important statements about the Holy Spirit that are found in the gospel of John 14:16. It reveals that within the trinity God the Father has the authority to send a Helper.

“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever...” - John 14:16.

The Scriptures teach that God the Father is the master planner. For example, in the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-14) Jesus taught the disciples to pray that God the Father cause His Kingdom to occur soon. He urged the disciples to ask that His will wound be done on earth as in heaven. Jesus also taught that the Father is the one who provides for our needs and forgives our sins. Ephesians 1:3-5 reveals that God the Father planned who would be saved. In summary, God the Father is the master planner within the trinity. So, Jesus said that He would ask the Father to send the Holy Spirit.

While it says God planned who would be saved. I believe we can change God’s heart by praying and asking for mercy. Read Matthew 15:27. Even if God chooses who will be saved. If you have faith as small as a mustard seed it will grow into something so much larger.

John 14:16 echos the truth that God the Father would send the Helper, who is the Holy Spirit.

“But the Helper,the Holy Spirit, whom the Fsther will send in My name, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” - John 14:26.

In John 16:7, Jesus repeats the point that theHoly Spirit is subject to Christ.

“But I tell you the truth,it is to your advantage that I go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I wupil send Him to you.” - John 16:7

These verses teach that the Holy Spirit’s ministry today is to believers here on earth. This is the ministry that God the Father and Christ have given Him to perform today,

Role of the Holy Spirit In Heaven

So, what is the role of the Holy Spirit in heaven? The explicit answer is not given to us, we could say that His role In heaven is to obey the Father and Christ within the trinity. God the Father has the authority, Christ and the Holy Spirit are subject to Him. The Holy Spirit also submits to Jesus. Jesus is or Savior and the Lord, and the Holy Spirit is our Helper. He helps believers here on earth.

The Summary

The Holy Spirit has a ministry here on earth and it is to believers. However, Scripture does not give us any informational to His role I. heaven. Whatever the Holy Spirit’s role in heaven, it is in cooperation with submission to God the Father and Christ.
