The Holy Spirit is a PERSON

The Holy Spirit is a personality and not merely an influence or a power.The Holy Spirit is spoken of “HE”. John 16:13,14

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
The marks of personality are ascribed to Him:
1.Will – 1 Corinthians 2:9-11

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.  For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

2. Love (Emotions) –  Romans 15:30

Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers to God for me.

3. Intellect (Knowledge) – 1 Corinthians 2:9-11 (see above); Nehemiah 9:20

You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them,
And did not withhold Your manna from their mouth,
And gave them water for their thirst.
