The Benefits of the HolySpirit
Before we begin with the benefits let me define the term Spirit in other words the Spirit of God. The Greek word for Spirit is pneuma which has a similar meaning to the word ruach. “Pneuma; meaning to breathe, blow, primarily denotes the wind. Breath; is the spirit which, like the wind, is invisible, immaterial, and powerful”.
In Hebrew and Aramaic, the word spirit is rucha, Ruach which is feminine whereas in Greek (pneuma) it is neutral in gender. The term, “Holy Spirit” is a descriptive title.
It is a description given for a specific manifestation of the Father’s Spirit Being. The Bible mentions, “In the NAME of The Father, The Son, AND The Holy Spirit.
To my understanding, the Holy Spirit is never worshipped. Look at this “And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever.” (Revelation 5:13)

He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. (John 16:12-15)
7. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. … (John 16:7-15)
