Ch. 7: The Holy Ghost

Receiving the Holy Ghost

from Gospel Principles:

Spirit children of our Heavenly Father began leaving God's presence to come to the earth to join the bodies of Adam and Eve's children and their children's children and so forth. As they came to earth, the memory of their heavenly home was taken from them but our Father did not shut them away from His influence. He sent the Holy Ghost to comfort and help and guide all of His spirit children.

The Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead (Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost consist the members of the Godhead). He is a "personage of Spirit" (D&C 130:22). Meaning he can be in only one place at a time, but His influence can be everywhere as the same time. Reading this statement I was asking myself, "Huh?". Then, the candle light analogy came to mind. So in Jinky theory... a candle light can be placed at one spot but the light influence has a radius ... so in this case the Holy Ghost is at one spot but His light influence radius is everywhere.
The mission of the Holy Ghost is to bear witness of the Father and the Son and of the truth of all things. It is by the power of the Holy Ghost that we are led to the understand and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Moreover, the convincing power of the Holy Ghost is so great that there can be no doubt that what He reveals to us is true. It is Spirit speaking to spirit so the manifestations leaves an indelible impression that is not easily erased ... so that's how you can know if anything is of God... the Holy Ghost will confirm it to you. Awesome! Another testament that our Heavenly Father loves us.
