Welcome to Episode 015 of the “Awakening with Nathanael Wolf” podcast and radio broadcast.

In this episode, Nathanael begins a new series on the person, work, and ministry of the Holy Spirit.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The difference between the names Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit.
  • Common misconceptions that arise from both the terms ghost and spirit.
  • Why the term ghost is sometimes preferable to spirit in describing the third Person of the Godhead.

Notable episode quotes:

  • Evangelist Billy Graham was asked, “When I was a child, I used to hear our pastor talk about the “Holy Ghost,” but now our church never uses that term. Does “Holy Ghost” mean the same thing as the Holy Spirit?  Rev. Graham answered, “The terms “Holy Ghost” and “Holy Spirit” are identical; the “Holy Ghost” is simply an older way of speaking of the Holy Spirit.  The reason the term “Holy Ghost” isn’t as common as it once was is because our English language has changed over the years. The word “ghost” is a good example of this. Today it means something different to most people than it did several centuries ago. Then, the word “ghost” simply meant “spirit,” but today most people think only of haunted houses or Halloween when they hear the word “ghost.” For this reason, almost all modern translations of the Bible use “Holy Spirit” instead of “Holy Ghost,” to avoid any misunderstanding.  The important thing, however, is to understand who the Holy Spirit is and what He wants to do in our lives.”
