The prophets knew the Spirit of the Lord

"If, further, one works through the twelve minor prophets, many testimonies to the Holy Spirit are to be found. Thus Micah speaks as God's mouthpiece and says, 'Truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord.' Joel cries, 'And it shall come to pass afterwards,' says God, 'that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh' and what follows. Haggai said, 'For I am with you,' says the Lord of hosts ... 'my Spirit remained among you.' And in like manner Zechariah says, 'Receive my words and my statutes which I commanded my servants the prophets.'"

St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lectures 15:29
