Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Spirit of God, Still Small Voice
 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
1 Kings 19
John the Baptist Prophesies of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Baptized.
 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;
 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord.
 Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.
 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.
 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.
 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.
 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.
 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.
 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.
 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.
 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
The resurrected Jesus appears to the disciples.
 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
Paul taught that spiritual gifts are given by the Holy Ghost. See 1 Corinthians 12.
These gifts are
1. Word of wisdom
2. Word of knowledge
4. Gifts of healing
5. Working of miracles
7. Discerning of spirits
8. Diverse kinds of tongues
9. Interpretation of tongues.
Paul taught that "no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost." (1 Corinthians 12:3)
 Do ye not remember that I said unto you that after ye had received the Holy Ghost ye could speak with the tongue of angels?
And now, how could ye speak with the tongue of angels save it were by the Holy Ghost?
 Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
2 Nephi 32
 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down unto the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.
 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.
Do You Know? By Elder Glenn L. Pace
How does this spiritual witness feel? It is as difficult to describe as the scent of a rose or the song of a bird or the beauty of a landscape. Nevertheless, you know it when you feel it.
The scriptures give us some insights into these feelings:
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your soul with joy; and then shall ye know" (D&C 11:1314).
Sometimes the feeling is like a memory. We first learned the gospel in our heavenly home. We have come to this Earth with a veil of forgetfulness. And yet lingering in each of our spirits are those dormant memories. The Holy Ghost can part the veil and bring those things out of their dormancy. Often my reaction to a supposedly newfound truth is, "Oh, I remember that!"
"The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost . . . [will] bring all things to your remembrance" (John 14:26).
