ONE OF US
We know God by learning Jesus, and so we learn God and Jesus by learning the Holy Spirit. The second incarnation is when Jesus said, “I shall ask the Father. And He will give another Paraclete (Comforter, Helper, advocate, intercessor) and He will be with you forever.” The Holy Spirit is as fully God as Jesus and the Father. If He is not, we have a triangle concept with only two sides. Trinitarian means a group of three, and three it must be. Jesus promised “another One just like this One;” One of Us. “I shall not leave you as orphans” and the second incarnation promise is in the making.
The Holy Spirit has been given the responsibility of ‘being with us’ just like Jesus was with the early disciples. Jesus lived, walked, ate, and experienced human life as a being from heaven that came to earth and was introduced by human birth. He was born into the human race and “the Word became flesh” (a human being). This is the first incarnation. The second incarnation is when the Holy Spirit comes to us as a being from heaven when we are “born from above” and we receive God as a resident who lives “within us.”
“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever.” Jesus
