Holy Ghost:

The third Person of the adorable Trinity.

His personality is proved (1) from the fact that the attributes of personality, as intelligence and volition, are ascribed to him (Jhn 14:17,26; 15:26; 1Cr 2:10,11; 12:11). He reproves, helps, glorifies, intercedes (Jhn 16:7-13; Rom 8:26). (2) He executes the offices peculiar only to a person. The very nature of these offices involves personal distinction (Luk 12:12; Act 5:32; 15:28; 16:6; 28:25; 1Cr 2:13; Hbr 2:4; 3:7; 2Pe 1:21).

His divinity is established (1) from the fact that the names of God are ascribed to him (Exd 17:7; Psa 95:7; Hbr 3:7-11); and (2) that divine attributes are also ascribed to him, omnipresence (Psa 139:7; Eph 2:17,18; 1Cr 12:13); omniscience (1Cr 2:10,11); omnipotence (Luk 1:35; Rom 8:11); eternity (Hbr 9:4). (3) Creation is ascribed to him (Gen 1:2; Job 26:13; Psa 104:30), and the working of miracles (Mat 12:28; 1Cr 12:9-11). (4) Worship is required and ascribed to him (Isa 6:3; Act 28:25; Rom 9:1; Rev 1:4; Mat 28:19).
