Ern Baxter on the Person of the Holy Spirit

"The Holy Spirit has suffered from neglect, depersonalizatio, neutralization, misdefinition and a whole host of other unhappy things. I believe these happened precisely because of His importance; the Holy Spirit is that Person of the Holy Trinity who comes directly in touch with us in life and experience. Satan is not at all adverse to our having intellectually orthodox views of the Holy Spirit but he is clearly against our becoming involved with Him in our lives.

The Holy Spirit is the One who brings the life, power, energy, illumination, inspiration and enablement of the Triune God to each of us, individually and corporately".

Ern Baxter - "Restoring the Balance between The King, the Kingdom and the Holy Spirit" - Destiny Image Publications (1995) - (p2).
