An attribute is something that sets apart an individual from others of the same kind, this is an interesting definition according to Websters dictionary. Now hear what Romans 1:20 (mp) says “For ever since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust are without excuse and without defence.” The implication here is, God’s attributes = His eternal power and divine nature.
The person of the Holy Spirit has ALL, yes, all the attributes of God the Father. Watch this, comparing and contrast, only God is Eternal, Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent, and the Holy Spirit is all these. Here you see equality in ability of the Holy Spirit in relation to God the creator of the universe.
When we have a clear understanding of the person of the Holy Spirit, I truly believe our mode and level of interaction with the Holy Spirit would be a lot more respectful. Renowned Bible scholar R. A. Torrey says “only a being with a personality can understand our problems and proffer solutions. So let us take one aspect of the person of the Holy Spirit as a being; He speaks to us, “whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.” Read Revelation 2:7.
We know, God is a master communicator, and the Holy Spirit also is a master communicator, and there is a responsibility on us to comply with what the Holy Spirit is saying. What the Holy Spirit says is no different to what God would say to us, so take your drey beats headphones off your ears and hear what the Holy Spirit is saying.
