Does The Holy Spirit Have A Name? by Blabbermouth: 7:08am On Dec 31, 2020
I know the God of Israel has a name, numerous titles and other personal names.

I know the Lord Jesus has a name, numerous titles and many other names.

So I'm asking, does the holy spirit have a name? If so, what is(are) the name(s)?

Several.

1. The Comforter.

2. The Spirit of Truth

3. Power from on high/The Power of God

4. The Breath of God/Eternal Life

5. The Holy Ghost

6. The Unconsuming Fire

That's all I can remember for now but if I get more I would get back to you.

God bless.

It's only persons that have names, JEHOVAH is the name of the Most High God {Exodus 6:2-3; Psalms 83:18} JESUS is the name of God's only begotten SON, but God's Holy Spirit is not a person rather it's God's active force so it doesn't have a personal name! smiley

[32]Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

[2]The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

If truly you know someone very well it won't be a difficulty for people to observe the person's touch and influence in your life. Just prove that you and your church know God's holy spirit by presenting it's positive effect in your gathering! James 2:18-26
JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES teaches that God's holy spirit is not a person but the active force of God your church taught you it's a person the stage is set now just like Elijah's day. Prove what you know about Holy Spirit with evidence and point to it's vivid manifestation where you noticed it and i'll present the undeniable proof that it's only working amongst JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES! smiley

What's deceiving most of you is that you forgot angels are spirits whether faithful or fallen ones, and the fallen angels are disguising as angels of light {2Corinthians 11:14} so it's what you've heard in the past about God's holy spirit that demons will do to deceive you since you're not interested to know what God's holy spirit supposed to be doing in your own generation! Since you're not interested in knowing the signs to recognize the works of God's holy spirit in your own time God is also not going to give you the signs you're seeking {Mark 8:12} that's why demons are manifesting in various forms to cause confusion and contradictions in your Churches!

Jesusjnr, I do believe all these are mere titles. I can call you "The comforter", or personalize it and call you "my comforter", that is not your name, it's just a title or role tied to your person.
The holy spirit is called the wine because His operation can be intoxicating.

The holy spirit is called the spirit of truth because it functions as a spirit that manifest truth wherever it abides.
And so on and so forth.

Since the holy spirit is generally regarded as a person, I want to know his name. Just like I know my Lord's name is Yahshua, Immanuel and co. I know my God's name is Yahweh. I want to know the holy spirit's name.

Yes.

You see, in Matthew 28:19, before the Lord Jesus ascended, He directed His disciples and by extension all sons of God to baptize believers in THE NAME of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit.

Note that, the Lord Jesus said NAME and not NAMES. The disciples consequently went and baptized believers in THE NAME JESUS (Acts 2:38, ACTS 19, ACTS 10, Collosians 3:17 et Al.)

The Lord Jesus is that same Holy Spirit



2 Corinthians 3:17

See, God is not 3 different persons acting as God; God is ONE. He is same as the God of Moses , The Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. They are manifestations of that same one God (Deuteronomy 6:4)

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

So would you also classify the above names of Jesus as titles?

If so, Even Immanuel which you claim to be a name of Jesus could be classified into a title because when translated into English, it becomes "God with us".

God's also has several names apart from Yahweh like "I Am".

Except you're seeking a Hebrew name for the Holy Spirit, but the reason He may not have one could be perhaps because He was not directly involved with the Israelites, and it was not until after the resurrection of Christ, that He became directly involved with the people of God.

So think that some of those names I listed if not all are some of the names of the Holy Spirit just as the other names of God and also Jesus.

That said, the most important thing, is to have the Spirit of God dwelling in us, because otherwise, if we know all about Him including His native name, it would bear no real significance.

God bless.

Besides, Holy Spirit is a name on it's own.

Yhwh is God's name, The Holy One is a title/eulogy.

Jesus is the Lord's name, the savior is a title/office.

Good questions

Q1: Yes, the Holy Spirit is same as the Lord Jesus Christ

Q2: He is Spirit/God (John 4:24)

At the appointed time, He became man (1 Timothy 3:16)

Died, resurected on the third day and ascended into heaven. He poured Himself upon His children and Lives in the children of God.

Only He can do this.

With Him all things are possible

This is funny considering that when God disclosed the name to Moses, we read that God says "This will be my name" which means prior to that time, God wasn't using that name.

At least the fact from the scripture is that The Holy Spirit has a name according to Jesus, if not Jesus will be wrong.

The main Greek word for “name” @Matthew 28:19 is not limited to one meaning and also means “authority” [check biblehub.com] so one who has been taught the good news about God's Kingdom from Jesus, which also includes “all the things [he] commanded”(Matthew 24:14, 28:20a, John 15:10) would become his disciple by getting baptized, recognizing the authority of the Father as Sovereign Ruler and Saviour[Psalm 83:18, Isaiah 43:11], recognizing the role that Jesus plays in all of God's purposes such as Mediator, King etc[Luke 1:31-33, 1Timothy 2:5] and also acknowledging how God uses holy spirit[which isn't a person] to accomplish his will and purposes. Luke 11:13, 2Peter 1:20-21
