Holy Spirit Deity 54

Three Days

Jonah swallowed by a whaleThe Holy Spirit deity declared Jesus to be the Son of God by raising him from the dead. Jesus said in Matthew 12.40 that the only sign that the people would get would be the sign of Jonah or three days and nights presumed dead in the belly of the whale before being reintroduced alive into the world. "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

Resurrection Authenticates Jesus

Jesus' ResurrectionSaint Paul reminds his readers that the resurrection authenticates Jesus' deity. Being raised showed that Jesus was without doubt the Son of God. Saint Paul writes in Romans 1.4, that Jesus "through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord." The Holy Spirit also asserted in 1 Timothy 3.16 "He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit." Death could not pin down Jesus. God interrupted and raised him up. In Acts 2.24 we read, "But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him."
