It is not possible to have a Salvation experience without the Holy Spirit. Salvation requires an unsaved person, an event (or witness) and the presence of the Holy Spirit. Those are the conditions for Salvation. One cannot recieve Jesus Christ without being drawn and then indwelled by the Holy Spirit.:)

In Devinne Corporation the ultimate family owned service company. God the Father is President and CEO.

Christ is Vice President in charge of recruiting and franchising.

The Holy Spirit is Vice President in charge of training and project support.

Can you understand the Trinity relationship by using this metaphor? Three independent entities in one family relationship Christ and the Holy Spirit subordinate to God the Father.

Greetings Sister Cynthia,

The Holy Spirit is the one that applies the blood of Christ to us (Tit 3:5).
It is the Holy Spirit that brings us to life from the dead (Eph 2:1).
The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, and thus convinces us of the need for our Savior (John 16:8).
The Holy Spirit moves and causes the new birth to happen (John 3:8), thus causing us to cry "Abba Father" (Rom 8:15)(i.e. causing us to "accept Christ", take up our cross, bare fruit, etc.)

Dear Sister Cynthia (continued):

The Holy Spirit tells us that we are God's children (Rom 8:16).
The Holy Spirit takes up a permanent residence within us (John 14:16).
He guides us (John 14:26).
He teaches us of Christ (John 15:26).
He even prays for us to the Father (Rom 8:26).

Hope this helps. I'm praying for you.

Lord bless you,

Cynthia, I believe Jesus said, "When the comforter comes, He will convict the world of sin." In regards to people receiving Jesus Christ as thier personal Lord & Savior, the Holy Spirit will convict them of sin. Without being convicted, how can someone repent if they're not convicted they're in sin?

Of the triune Godhead, the Holy Spirit is the only active agent on earth today. So his role is very very big, he convicts, he leads, he nurtures, he seals, without the Holy Spirit no salvation will take place.

"What role does the Holy Spirit play?"

The Holy Spirit is God. He's not playing any role and your life is not a dress rehearsal, preparatory event.

The Holy Spirit is equal in every way with The Father and The Son, Jesus Christ.
If you deny The Holy Spirit as God in your life, you are denying God's power. The Holy Spirit has/is the power that will resurrect your spirit at the moment of your death.

"But he who is joined to the Lord is one Spirit with Him." (1 Corinthians 6:17) The Holy Spirit joins people to Himself, including "the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit" (in Titus 3:5), which changes people to become submissive to God in His very own love (Romans 5:5), led personally in God's peace (Colossians 3:15). Jesus says, "learn from Me", in Matthew 11:29. The Holy Spirit has us learn with Jesus how to relate in love with God and people.

The Holy Spirit is our comforter and our guide, even Jesus said he will send us a comforter to protect us and never leave us alone.
