There are  definite articles and pronouns in masculine gender that refer to the Holy Spirit clearly showing that the biblical authors considered Him to be a person, because grammatically speaking, the author should have used the neuter form to agree with the antecedent, but used a constructio ad sensum instead. 

John 14:25 EKEINOS instead of EKEINO

Not all believe the Holy spirit is a person, and this is one of the reasons. The point is AUTOS
 is in the neuter form in this verse, and since God is spirit I perfer to leave it that way, and not try to force it to fit your form of understanding
