The third person of the Godhead. He is completely God. He is called God (Acts 5:3-4), has a will (1 Corinthians 12:11), speaks (Acts 8:29; Act 13:2), and knows all things (John 14:17). He is not an "active force" as the Jehovah's Witnesses mistakenly teach. The Holy Spirit is alive and is fully and completely God. He is called the Spirit of God (Genesis 1:2), Holy Spirit (Psalms 51:1), the Helper (John 14:16; Joh 14:26), and Eternal Spirit (Hebrews 9:14). He knows all things (1 Corinthians 2:10-11), is all powerful (Luke 1:35), and is everywhere (Psalms 139:7-13). (See Trinity and Holy Spirit.)
