3) “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” Isaiah 11:2-4.

6) “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost...why has thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.” Acts 5:3-4.
This verse reveals that the Holy Spirit Himself is a God.
Is the Holy Spirit a God other than God - the Father and God - the Son?
“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling: One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:4-6.
“There is one...Spirit”. The Greek word for “Spirit” used in this text is from Strong’s Exhaustive Greek Concordance, word #4151, and it translates and means “divine God”, “the Holy Spirit”.
“There is...one Lord.” The Greek word for Lord used in this text is from Strong’s, word #2962, and it translates and means “God” “supreme in authority”.
“There is...One God and Father”. The Greek word for God used in this text is from Strong’s, word #2316, and it translates and means “God” “supreme Divinity”.
Putting all these translated meanings together gives us the full meaning of the text:
“There is one body, and one divine God – the Holy Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling: one Lord God – supreme in authority, one faith, one baptism, one God – supreme Divinity and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:4-6.
This verse reveals that there are actually 3 different Gods who are united with each other to provide salvation to mankind.
7) Are there any consequences for denying that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person and Being and a God other than the Father and the Son?
“Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.” Acts 8:14-17.
“And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. “ Acts 19:1-6.
These inspired passages reveal that those who did not know that the Holy Spirit actually existed, did not have the Holy Spirit's power in their lives. This same consequence will happen today to those who do not understand or believe that the the Holy Spirit exists as a living divine Person and Being and a God!
8) Any who refuse to recognize the Holy Spirit exists as a distinct, living holy divine Being and a God of the Godhead, are denying, speaking against, insulting, grieving, doing despite and cruelly rejecting Him, and are in danger of committing the unpardonable sin and being hopelessly lost (see Ephesians 4:30; Hebrews 10:29; Mark 3:28-29; Luke 12:10; Matthew 12:31)!
