Is the Spirit of God equal to the Father and the Son?

Is the Spirit of God equal to the Father and the Son?

Called "the Lord, the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:18, JND), lying to Him and to God are equivalent (Acts 5:3, 4). He is equated with God in the creation (Genesis 1:2; 2:2), incarnation (Luke 1:35; Galatians 4:4), anointing (Acts 10:38), miracles (Matthew 12:28; Luke 11:20), crucifixion (Hebrews 9:14), resurrection (Acts 3:15; 1 Peter 3:18), saints' resurrection (Romans 8:11;1 Corinthians 15:38, and operation of gifts (1 Corinthians 12:6, 11).

The Lord equates the Spirit's deity with His own by saying, "another (of the same kind) Comforter" (John 14:16). In 1 Corinthians 12-4-6 the Spirit, the Lord and God are parallel (see also Matthew 28:29; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2; Jude 21). hi the same chapter, He "wills" (verse 11), as does God Games 1:18). His omnipresence and God's are equivalent (Psalm 139:7). He is omniscient (1 Corinthians 2:11) and omnipotent (Romans 8:11; Matthew 22:29).

He wills (John 3:8), knows (1 Corinthians 2:11), acts (Acts 16:7), speaks (1 Timothy 4:1), and feels (Ephesians 4:30). He is a distinct person, though equal with the Father and Son. When the Son stood at Jordan, the Spirit descended, and the Father spoke from heaven, this distinction was visible (Matthew 3:16, 17, paralleling the Old Testament revelation in Isaiah 42:1).
