Where Is the Holy Spirit?

-As recorded, the Holy Spirit came on the day of Pentecost and there are no recordings of His return (going back).

Acts 2:1-4 NKJV
     When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.  And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

-For the believer, the Holy Spirit lives in us and with us.

Colossians 1:27 (NKJV)
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Emphasis Mine

- We have been sealed with Him

Ephesians 1:13 (NKJV)
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
Emphasis Mine

Tracing The Holy Spirit Through Some Old Testament Scriptures
            -The Holy Spirit was present from the very beginning of creation.

Genesis 1:2 (NKJV)
The earth was without form, and void, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. The Holy Spirit is not a new idea for this generation or dispensation.
Emphasis Mine

-This scripture talks about the attributes of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 11:2 (NKJV)
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

-Our fruitfulness in life depends on the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 32:15 (NKJV)
Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.
Emphasis Mine
