Today, points are shared on correctly knowing the Holy Spirit.  The fighter at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Anonymous” (no other information available) posted the following in the public forum:

What is the Holy Spirit in Christianity and how is it different from the Father or the Son?

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  (Romans 8:  26-27, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  GOD Known By Action Not Form? (03/18/2015); The Spirit of Truth? (02/11/2015); The First Book of the Bible? (11/20/2014); The Beginning of Wisdom? (11/21/2014); Knowing the Spirit is Inside? (10/07/2014); The Gender of Divinity? (09/13/2014)

“Anonymous”, for Christian believers, the only way to avoid speculation and spiritual confusion regarding the revelation of divinity to mankind is to become directed by Jesus Christ through the holy writings and the imparted, indwelling Spirit.  It is a common error to deny the oneness and unity of Deity by posing questions that personalize GOD, and that frame divinity as though it is another human characteristic.  Consciousness of GOD consists in doctrine, images, impressions, law, precepts, principles, and values.  The process of knowing, therefore, is one of accepting and affirming, not differentiating or isolating distinctions (i.e., Aristotelian classification and so-called science).  Thus, there is no single statement that may be made in answer to your question, and the thoughts appropriate to correct sacred knowledge, here, relate to such Scriptures as the following:

(1.)  O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!  (Romans 11:  33, King James Version, KJV)

(2.)  The secret things belong unto the LORD our God:  but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.  (Deuteronomy 29:  29, KJV)

(3.)  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:  (Revelation 1:  1, KJV)

(4.)  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:  for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak:  and he will shew you things to come.  He shall glorify me:  for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  (John 16:  13-14, KJV)

(5.)  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.  (Revelation 2:  11, KJV)

(6.)  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.  (Revelation 2:  17, KJV)

(7.)  Hereby know ye the Spirit of God:  Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:  and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:  because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  They are of the world:  therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.  We are of God:  he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.  (1st John 4:  2-6, KJV)

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (8.)  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?  This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:  and these three are one.  (1st John 5:  5-7, KJV) )  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
