The Names of the Holy Spirit

You need to know that the Holy Spirit is known by many different names in the Bible. These include:-

Comforter (John 14:16 and 14:26)

  1. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper to be with you forever.
  2. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.


Good Spirit (Nehemiah 9: 20)

You gave your good Spirit to instruct them and did not withhold your manna from their mouth and gave them water for their thirst.


Holy Ghost (Acts 1: 5)

For John baptised with water, but you will be baptised by the Holy Ghost not many days from now


Spirit (Ephesians 5: 18)

And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit.


Spirit of Adoption (Romans 8: 15)

For you did not receive the Spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry “Abba! Father!”


Spirit of Christ (Romans 8: 9)

You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Him.


Spirit of Glory (1 Peter 4: 14)

If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you.


Spirit of God (Romans 8: 9)

You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Him


Spirit of Grace (Hebrews 10: 29)

How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of Grace?


Spirit of Promise (Ephesians 1: 13)

In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.


Spirit of the Lord (Luke 4: 18)

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.

Spirit of Truth (John 14: 17)

Even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him, nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.


Spirit of Wisdom (Ephesians 1: 17)

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory may give you the Spirit of Wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.

May the Lord our God bless you mightily on this wonderful Sabbath day, the day that the Lord gave to us.

With many peaceful blessings

I am an author and broadcaster. In January 2013 I very nearly died but our Father God healed me and I am still alive to tell the tale! I have written/edited several books about the Bible, God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. My future ministry is focused on outreach. I do not just want to preach to the converted but to many people 'out there' who do not know Jesus as their Saviour and who are in great need of His love and compassion. Praise be to the Lord our God, our Heavenly Father
