The Holy Spirit is the power of God. (Luke 1:35). Consequently, what the Holy Spirit does is really what God is doing. For example, the “Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit . . . shall teach you all things” (John 14:26) means simply: “God shall teach you all things through his divine power.” Similarly, although the Scriptures cannot literally “say” anything, it is written: “For the Scripture saith unto Pharaoh.” (Romans 9:17). God said this, and His human penman, guided by Holy Spirit power, reliably recorded it. In this quotation there is a merging of what “God says” with what “Scripture says”. Likewise, the Holy Spirit is said to “speak”, “bear witness”, and to be a “comforter” when in actuality it is God doing the speaking, bearing witness and comforting, by his power — the Holy Spirit. [Below is a list of] each of the passages wrested in an effort by trinitarians to prove that the Holy Spirit is a person:
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit . . . he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:26)
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.” (John 15:26)
