What is The Holy Spirit ?

( God’s Word Defines It So That EVERYONE Can Understand )

Who, or What, Is “The Holy Spirit” of God?
In order to better understand “The Spirit of God”, we must first adhere to what God’s Word (The Bible) teaches. It is only through HIS Word that He is able to teach us WHO He (The Father) was and is, and WHO Jesus Christ (The Lord of Christianity) was and is
God is the only One able to grant to us understanding of these things BY His Power (His “Spirit of Wisdom”)- which is why we should always first ask God for Wisdom, and Understanding of His Word in prayer BEFORE we study His Words of life.

James 1:5-8 (NASB)
But IF ANY OF YOU lacks wisdom, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO HIM.
[6] BUT LET HIM ASK IN FAITH WITHOUT ANY DOUBTING, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. [7] For let not that man expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, [8] being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.


Matthew 7:7-11 (NASB)
ASK, and it shall be given to you;
SEEK, and you shall find;
KNOCK, and it shall be opened to you.
[8] “For EVERYONE who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened.
[9] “Or what man is there among you, when his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone? [10] “Or if he shall ask for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? [11] “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

For more detailed bible study-helps on the topics of Jesus Christ and God The Father, you may refer to the studies listed here:

— “Jesus Christ, The Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever” (This study proves that Jesus existed in the form of God (The Word of God with and as- “in the form of” One God) BEFORE He was made flesh (born to Mary) by The Power of The Highest.

AND,

— “A Seventh Day (7th Day) Sabbath”

– THE HOLY SPIRIT –

First, here are the definition of the two words:

“HOLY”: NASB Dictionary Help: hagios, Greek 40; from hagos (religious awe); SACRED, HOLY.

Dictionary: “Holy”: (Adjective) Belonging to or derived from or associated with a divine power” – (similar: sacred, hallowed, sanctified)

“SPIRIT”: Strong’s Help pneuma, Greek 4151, pnyoo’-mah; from Greek 4154 (pneo); a CURRENT of air, i.e. BREATH (BLAST) or a BREEZE; by analogy or figurative a SPIRIT, i.e. (human) the rational SOUL, (by implicaiton) VITAL PRINCIPLE, mental DISPOSITION, etc., or (superhuman) an ANGEL, DEMON, or (divine) GOD, Christ’s SPIRIT, the Holy Spirit :- ghost, life, spirit (-ual, -ually), mind. Compare Greek 5590 (psuche).

“SPIRIT”: NASB Dictionary Help: pneuma, Greek 4151; from Greek 4154 (pneo); WIND, SPIRIT :- (used in NASB translation as: breath(3 times), Spirit(239 times), spirit(103 times), spirits(32 times), spiritual(m)(1 time), wind(1 time), winds(1 time).

God’s holy Scriptures teach us clearly WHAT “The Holy Spirit” is:


Luke 1:30-35 (NASB)
And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. [31] “And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. [32] “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David……


1 Cor. 15:27-28 (NASB)
For He HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER His feet. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. [28] And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, that God may be all in all.


……[33] and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and His kingdom will have no end.” [34] And Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” [35] And the angel answered and said to her, “THE HOLY SPIRIT will come upon you, AND THE POWER OF THE MOST HIGH will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God.

And again,

Luke 24:46-51 (KJV)
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: [47] And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. [48] And ye are witnesses of these things.
[49] And, behold, I send THE PROMISE OF MY FATHER upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with POWER FROM ON HIGH.
[50] And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
[51] And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

And again,

John 7:38-39 (KJV)
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. [39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: FOR THE HOLY GHOST WAS NOT YET given; BECAUSE that Jesus WAS NOT YET GLORIFIED.)


Facts just learned about The Holy Spirit:

“The Holy Spirit” is described as:

– “The Power of The Most High”

– “Power From on High”
And it is said concerning The Holy Spirit:
– “Was NOT YET Given, BECAUSE Jesus was NOT YET GLORIFIED

Now, look at what Paul says about THIS “Power from on High” that is in us:

2 Cor. 13:5 (KJV)
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ IS IN YOU, except ye be reprobates?

So, here is yet another statement about this “Holy Spirit” that is in the Christian (“The Israel of God“, as Paul refers to them in Gal. 6:16):

– “Jesus Christ IS IN You”



John 14:8-21 (KJV)
Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
[9] Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? [10] Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. [11] Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
[12] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. [13] And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. [14] If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
[15] If ye love me, keep my commandments. [16] And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [17] 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.
[18] I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
[19] Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. [20] At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
[21] He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.


Notice that Jesus told His desciples that they knew Him; and that He dwelt with them? And then, He says, “and SHALL BE in you”… Jesus Christ was dwelling with them at that time:

John 16:4-7 (NASB)
…”But these things I have spoken to you, that when their hour comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, BECAUSE I was with you.
[5] “But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ [6] “But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
[7] “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for IF I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you…

John 7:39 (NASB)
But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.


…BUT IF I go, I will send Him to you.


John 14:26 (NASB)
“But the Helper, THE HOLY SPIRIT, whom the Father will send IN MY NAME, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.


AND, Jesus Christ WOULD be “IN” them on The Day of Penticost that same year!
2 Cor. 13:5 (NASB)
Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you– unless indeed you fail the test?


Jesus Christ, in the glorified form, IS “The Power of God“:

1 Cor. 1:24 (KJV)
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.


Under The NEW Covenant “operation of God” [Col. 2:12], Jesus Christ (Joshua, Messiah) has BEEN MADE by God to be, “Power of the Highest”. Jesus is literally become- through the Spiritual GLORY (of his resurrection to glory), “Power from On High” existing in His disciples (followers)- and in this way He truly fulfills The Scriptures of Old:

Jeremiah 31:33 (KJV)
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Ezekiel 37:27-28 (NASB)
“My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. [28] “And the nations will know that I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.”

Just as Paul says,


2 Cor. 6:16 (NASB)
…For we are the temple of the living God; just AS GOD SAID,

I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM;
And I WILL BE THEIR God, AND THEY SHALL BE My people.


Jesus’ own words have just taught us about “The Helper” (- NASB: “Comforter“), the “Holy Spirit“:


– “I will come to you”

– “I AM IN The Father, and you in me, And I IN YOU”

– “The Holy Spirit, whom (-or which) The Father WILL SEND IN MY NAME”


John 20:21-23 (KJV)
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. [22] And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: [23] Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.


Note here how that Jesus Christ “breathed on them“…sending HIS “breath” out from Himself to them– a truly symbolic gesture here for them of what was about to happen to them…Symbolic of what was coming, since they were not to receive The Holy Spirit until some 49 days later, on the Holy Day of The Lord Jesus and God The Father, called “Pentecost”:


Acts 2:1-4 (KJV)
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
[2] And suddenly there came a sound FROM HEAVEN as of a rushing mighty WIND, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. [3] And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. [4] And they were all filled with THE HOLY GHOST, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Ephes. 4:8 (NASB)
Therefore it says, “When He ASCENDED ON HIGH, He LED CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES, And He GAVE GIFTS TO MEN.”




Now, look at Paul’s words discussing this Holy Spirit that the one in The Faith and Way of God’s Truth receives:


1 Cor. 2:9-16 (KJV)
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
[10] But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
[11] For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?
EVEN SO the things of God knoweth no man , but the Spirit of God.
[12] Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, BUT THE SPIRIT WHICH IS OF GOD; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
[13] Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
[14] But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
[15] But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. [16] For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?
BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.



Notice,
– “We have the mind OF Christ Jesus”


What About “The Holy Spirit” BEFORE Christ Jesus was Glorified?

The Sacred Scriptures testify to us that The Holy Spirit was indeed upon King David and The Prophets of old…


Psalm 51:11 (KJV)
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not THY HOLY SPIRIT from me.


Spirit“: Strong’s Help ruwach, Hebrew 7307, roo’-akh; from Hebrew 7306 (ruwach); WIND; by resemblance BREATH, i.e. a sensible (or even violent) exhalation; figurative life, anger, unsubstantiality; by extensive a region of the sky; by resemblance SPIRIT, but only of a rational being (including its expression and functions) :- air, anger, blast, breath, … cool, courage, mind, … quarter, … side, spirit ([-ual]), tempest, … vain, ([whirl-]) wind (-y).
Yet, we might wonder- HOW can this be if, as John states: “The Spirit was not yet given, because that Jesus was not yet glorified“?

The answer to this is also found in God’s Word.

The Spirit of God that rested upon David and the prophets WAS “The HOLY Spirit” of God—- yet, “NOT YET” The Holy Spirit of “a Son” (- “adoption as of a son“), in the form of Jesus, son of man and God “glorified“.

As Paul points out,


“And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: [40] God having provided some better thing FOR US, THAT THEY WITHOUT US should not be made perfect
.” – Hebrews 11:39-40 (KJV)


We see then, that David and The Prophets were not perfected; not UNTIL the age of The Christ (their Messiah) was fully come…not until Jesus came, suffered, died and was raised, and then was “glorified” in Spirit-form in the presence of God, His Father (The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob)…

The Scriptures do speak on this very point:

Acts 1:4 (NASB)
And gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for WHAT THE FATHER HAD PROMISED, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me;



Ephes. 1:13-14 (NASB)
In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation– having also believed, you were SEALED in Him with the Holy Spirit OF PROMISE, [14] WHO IS GIVEN AS A PLEDGE OF OUR INHERITANCE, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.


Notice the comments in the above about, “WHAT The Father had promised…”, and, “…the Holy Spirit OF PROMISE…”? God was pointing to the fact that A PROMISE was coming through way of The Messiah’s being glorified by Him…

Romans 8:12-16 (NASB)
So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh-
[13] for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but IF BY THE SPIRIT you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live…….

— Moritfying, or killing (putting to death) the “deeds of the flesh” (which is “sin“, and John says, “Sin is the transgression of The Law“)– mortifying (killing) sin THROUGH the Baptism of Repentance IN CHRIST JESUS’ Name-

Col. 3:3-5 (KJV)
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. [4] When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory……
Romans 6:3 (NASB)
Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?

……[5] Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry…


For more on the topic of ‘Sincere REPENTANCE as a stipulation for receiving Salvation’- refer to the text study: “What is The Gospel of Jesus Christ?” (located under “The Full Truth About…” section)
……[13] for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
[14] For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
[15] For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”
[16] The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,


And,


Galatians 4:6-7 (KJV)
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. [7] Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God THROUGH Christ.

“Through Christ” (The Holy Spirit)— Again, Paul says,

Ephes. 1:13-14 (NASB)
IN HIM, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation– having also believed, you were SEALED IN HIM with the Holy Spirit of promise,
[14] who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.


And finally, Paul says it pointedly:

2 Cor. 3:17-18 (KJV)
Now THE LORD IS THAT SPIRIT: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. [18] But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

The summary of all the points covered so far:

– “A Spirit of ADOPTION as sons”

– “God hath sent forth THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

– “Sealed IN HIM WITH The Holy Spirit of Promise”

– “THE LORD IS THAT SPIRIT”

– “The Spirit of The Lord”

– “The Holy Spirit”

– “The POWER of The Most High”

– “POWER From on High”

– “FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT Was NOT YET Given, BECAUSE JESUS was NOT YET ‘GLORIFIED'”

– “JESUS CHRIST IS IN YOU”

– “But we have THE MIND OF CHRIST”

– “I will come to you”

– “I AM IN THE FATHER, and you in me, AND I IN YOU”


Our Lord explains thoroughly the process for HOW God will go about giving this marvelous Gift to mankind:
John 14:23-27 (KJV)
Jesus answered and said unto him, IF a man love me, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS: AND my Father will love him, AND we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
[24] He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.



John 6:44-46 (KJV)
No man can come to me, EXCEPT THE FATHER which hath sent me DRAW HIM: and I will raise him up at the last day.
[45] It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me……


Galatians 3:24-27 (KJV) Wherefore THE LAW WAS OUR SCHOOLMASTER to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. [25] But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. [26] For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. [27] For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.


Romans 13:9-11 (KJV)
For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and IF THERE BE ANY OTHER COMMANDMENT, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
[10] Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law

1 John 5:3 (KJV)
For THIS is the love of God, THAT WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: and his commandments are not grievous.

…[11] And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.


……[45] It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all TAUGHT OF GOD. EVERY MAN therefore that HATH HEARD, AND HATH LEARNED OF THE FATHER, COMETH UNTO ME.
[46] Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

These teachings of Jesus Christ our Lord show us that WE MUST ‘love AND obey’ The Father’s Commandments IF we wish to come to Him- (Jesus is The Grace- or atonement- from The Father for our “sins”—- “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW.” – 1 John 3:4 )

John 14:24-27 (KJV)
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and THE WORD which ye hear IS NOT MINE, BUT THE FATHER’S which sent me.
[25] These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. [26] 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. [27] Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.


Another point about “The Comforter” (The Holy Spirit)-
– “The Holy Spirit, WHOM (-or which) The Father WILL SEND IN MY NAME


Also, note here how Jesus clearly says The Word is NOT His, but The Father’s… Jesus never nullified ANY of His Father’s Commandments:

Matthew 5:17-22 (NASB)
DO
NOT
THINK
that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill.
[18] “For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished.

[19] “WHOEVER THEN ANNULS one of the least of these commandments, and so teaches others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; BUT WHOEVER KEEPS AND TEACHES them, HE SHALL BE CALLED GREAT in the kingdom of heaven…


Rev. 12:17 (NASB)
And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God AND hold to the testimony of Jesus.


…[20] “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.
[21] “You have heard that the ancients were told, ‘You shall NOT COMMIT MURDER’ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ [22] “But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever shall say to his brother, ‘Raca,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever shall say, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.


Notice that Jesus not only just confirms (- verifies, – “fulfills“) The Law of God here, but, while doing so, He then goes on to ‘make straight’ the crooked way of looking at God’s Commandments that the people of His time had, due to their own misguided ways (the rest of the chapter deals with the making straight of the crooked)…


And back again to answering this question of, ‘What is The Holy Spirit?’- ALL of The Scriptures should be look at, to teach us about God’s Holy Spirit, not merely one verse that might be isolated and expounded upon at length through imagination…

KNOWING ALL that The Scriptures have to tell us about God and HIS ways- THIS is our weapon in the fight against Satan and his power of deception through sin:


Matthew 4:3-7 (KJV) And when The Tempter came to him, he said, IF thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. [4] But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. [5] THEN The Devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, [6] And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: FOR IT IS WRITTEN, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. [7] Jesus said unto him, IT IS WRITTEN AGAIN, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.


Ephes. 6:11 (KJV) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL.

God teaches us, through use of ALL The Scriptures, that The Holy Spirit IS NOT a third being (or entity).

The Holy Spirit IS described by God as His own “Power“.

The Holy Spirit is referred to by God’s own Son, Jesus Christ to His apostles as, “Power from on High“…

God PLAINLY teaches us that HE is the ONLY God…

Isaiah 42:8 (KJV)
I am The LORD: that is my name……


“The LORD”: Hebrew word “JeHoVaH”, or “JHVH”, or “YeHoWaH”- meaning “Self Existant”, or the “I AM” (the ‘I Exist’)… The given Name of God, which He gave to Moses in Exodus 6:3…


……I am The LORD: that is my name: and MY GLORY will I NOT give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Isaiah 45:5 (KJV)
I am The LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

God plainly teaches us that HE is The One Who brought forth salvation for people- The True “Israel of God” (all who will hear and learn of The Father and come to Christ Jesus through Faith and Repentance with Baptism)…


John 1:1-3 (KJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God……


Philip. 2:5-7 (NASB)
…Christ Jesus, [6] WHO, although HE EXISTED IN THE FORM OF GOD, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, [7] but emptied HIMSELF, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.


……[2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:14 (KJV)
And THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER,) FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH.


The “Power from On High” (“The Holy Spirit”) WAS in King David, as it was in the holy Prophets of the Old Testament… But it was not UNTIL The Son (Jesus) was “glorified” that “The Spirit of His Son” (“The Spirit of Adoption“) could be “given“—– they of Old “received the promise” of being a son, through their faith- being sealed with the same “Power From on High” that would later (at the appointed time) become The Grace of God in the form of flesh (“The Lamb of God“), Jesus Christ:

Hebrews 11:39-40 (KJV)
And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, RECEIVED NOT the promise:
[40] God having provided some better thing for us, THAT THEY WITHOUT US should not be made perfect.

Hebrews 11:13-16 (KJV)
These all died IN FAITH, NOT HAVING RECEIVED THE PROMISES, BUT HAVING SEEN THEM AFAR OFF, AND WERE PERSUADED OF THEM, AND EMBRACED THEM, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
[14] For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. [15] And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. [16] But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: WHEREFORE GOD IS NOT ASHAMED TO BE CALLED THEIR GOD: FOR HE HATH PREPARED FOR THEM A CITY.


Rev. 6:9-11 (KJV)
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, AND for the testimony which they held:
[10] And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
[11] And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.


John 7:38-39 (KJV)
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. [39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: FOR THE HOLY GHOST WAS NOT YET given; BECAUSE that JESUS WAS NOT YET GLORIFIED.)



1 Peter 1:10-11 (KJV)
Of which salvation THE PROPHETS have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: [11] Searching what, or what manner of time THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST WHICH WAS IN THEM did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.


Again, for further details into The Spirit of Jesus Christ- WHO He was, is, and will be, you may refer to the study:
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”


Jesus Christ existed “in the form of God“- as seen above- having “equality with God” (Philip. 2:5-7)…
He was ONE “with“, existed “in the form of”, “God”, in the beginning, “WAS The Word of God” and “WAS God” (John 1:1-2).

Having now been taught these things BY GOD HIMSELF in His Holy Word, it can be clearly seen that The Spirit of a ‘yet-to-be’ glorified Messiah was in deed IN the prophets of The Old Testament times, in the form of this, “Power from On High“— The POWER that was FROM God Almighty…

This was the same “Power” that would later create a physical, flesh and blood “Son” through a woman (Mary) for the purpose of salvation- with the goal of being “glorified” in Spirit-form with The Father… With the overall goal of God to create a process (a way) of “bringing MANY sons to glory” –

“…for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.”- Heb. 9:15

And,

“who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.” – Ephes. 1:14 (NASB)


God’s goal is to bring MANY Children into “GLORY”- this is why Christ was created, suffered, and rose again— so that we might be “children of God” through the type of Faith in Him that works to the changing of our lives; the practicing of OBEDIENCE to God’s Law:


Hebrews 2:10 “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”


Hebrews 1:5-6 (KJV)
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day HAVE I BEGOTTEN THEE? And again, I will be to him a Father, AND he shall be to me a Son?
[6] And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.



Acts 13:33-37 (KJV)
…God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, THOU ART MY SON, THIS DAY HAVE I BEGOTTEN THEE.
[34] And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, HE SAID ON THIS WISE, I will give you the sure mercies of David.
[35] WHEREFORE HE SAITH ALSO IN ANOTHER PSALM, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
[36] For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: [37] But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.

The Spirit of God (The “POWER from on High“) that was in The Prophets WAS truly The SAME Holy Spirit (“Power from on High“) that became “a Son“…and it was That Son that was “received up into glory” in the process of becoming the Spiritual Eternal “SON OF GOD”, at His resurrection by God, The Father…


John 20:17 (KJV)
Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; FOR I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

In His glorification in The Spirit form, He has perfected all who came before that lived by FAITH in The Messiah (The Christ) of God:

Job 19:24-29 (KJV)
That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
[25] For I know that my redeemer liveth, AND that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
[26] And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
[27] Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.


Job verifies his own FAITH in the coming ‘redemption’ through his coming Messiah…
Job’s WAY OF LIFE (his every deed/work) was shaped according to that FAITH:


James 2:18-20 (KJV)
Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. [19] Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

NOTE- though the demons do believe in Christ Jesus, they do not REPENT, nor do they turn to “practice righteousness” through their faith!


[20] But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Galatians 5:6 (KJV)
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith WHICH WORKETH BY love.



NOTE: “Faith that works by Love“- is the faith that the Apostles teach and instruct every person to follow after…not an empty faith of mere words- but, a faith that works OBEDIENCE to The Father’s Commandments!.


1 John 5:3 (KJV)
For THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD, THAT WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: and his commandments are not grievous.



God Himself testifies to us in His Word about Job’s lifestyle that came about BECAUSE OF his living faith (“faith that works by love”) in God:

Job 1:8 (KJV)
And The LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM IN THE EARTH, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, AND escheweth evil?


Definition of “Eschew”:
Strong’s Help cuwr, Hebrew 5493, soor; or suwr, soor; (Hos. 9:12), a primitive root; TO TURN OFF (literal or figurative) :- be [-head], bring, call back, decline, depart, eschew, get [you], go (aside), … grievous, lay away (by), leave undone, be past, pluck away, put (away, down), rebel, remove (to and fro), revolt, … be sour, take (away, off), turn (aside, away, in), WITHDRAW, BE WITHOUT.



Psalm 34:12-18 (KJV)
WHAT MAN is he that DESIRETH LIFE, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
[13] Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. [14] DEPART FROM EVIL, AND DO GOOD; seek peace, and pursue it.
[15] The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. [16] The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. [17] The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. [18] The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.


1 Peter 3:8-12 (KJV)
Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: [9] Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
[10] For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: [11] LET HIM ESCHEW EVIL, AND DO GOOD; let him seek peace, and ensue it. [12] For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.



John 7:37-39 (KJV)
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.


Acts 24:24-25 (KJV)
And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him CONCERNING THE FAITH IN CHRIST.
[25] And as he reasoned of RIGHTEOUSNESS, TEMPERANCE, AND JUDGMENT TO COME Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.


1 John 5:3 (KJV)
For THIS is the love of God, THAT we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.


Romans 13:8-12 (KJV)
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
[9] FOR THIS, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; AND IF there be any other COMMANDMENT, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
[10] LOVE WORKETH NO ILL to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. [11] And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. [12] The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.


1 Tim. 1:9-11 (KJV)
…Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, [10] For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, AND IF THERE BE ANY OTHER THING THAT IS CONTRARY TO SOUND DOCTRINE; [11] ACCORDING TO THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.



John 7:37-39 (KJV)
In the last day, that great day of the feast, JESUS STOOD AND CRIED, SAYING, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
[38] He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers OF LIVING WATER.
[39] (But THIS SPAKE HE OF THE SPIRIT, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)



Now that The Messiah has come, has suffered, and has been received up into “Glory“- “The Way” was finally made ready for all “Sons” (Children) of God to also be glorified as He was… Anyone who lives according to this ‘Living Faith’ that works “repentance” and right [‘lawful’] deeds through Baptism in Faith of THAT Messiah are made to become “Sons of God“– all by the working of The Spirit of God Almighty (“Power from on High“):


John 14:1-6 (KJV)
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. [2] In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU.
[3] And IF I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, AND receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. [4] And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. [5] Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? [6] Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


John 5:20-21 (NASB)
“For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and greater works than these will He show Him, that you may marvel. [21] “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so THE SON ALSO GIVES LIFE TO WHOM HE WISHES……

:26-29 (NASB)
……”For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; [27] and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. [28] “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, [29] AND SHALL COME FORTH; those who did the good deeds TO A RESURRECTION OF LIFE, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.



John 1:12 (KJV)
But AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, TO THEM GAVE HE POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF GOD, even to them that believe on his name:



1 John 3:2 (NASB)
Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, WHEN HE APPEARS, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM, because we shall see Him just as He is.



1 Cor. 15:22-26 (KJV)
For as in Adam all die, even so IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE.
[23] BUT every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; AFTERWARD they that are Christ’s AT HIS COMING.
[24] Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. [25] For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. [26] The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.


God has made THIS WAY possible through His Own “POWER“- His Holy Spirit:


Isaiah 63:5 (KJV)
And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: THEREFORE MINE OWN ARM brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.


Isaiah 40:10 (KJV)
Behold, The LORD God will come with strong hand, AND HIS ARM SHALL RULE FOR HIM: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.



Rev. 19:11-16 (KJV)
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and HIS NAME IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD.



Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)
So shall MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: it shall not return unto me void

Hebrews 2:10 (KJV)
For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

…but IT shall accomplish that which I please,



John 8:29 (NASB)
“And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, FOR I ALWAYS DO THE THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING TO HIM.”



John 10:15 (KJV)
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: AND I LAY DOWN MY LIFE FOR THE SHEEP. [16] And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and THERE SHALL BE ONE FOLD, AND ONE SHEPHERD.
[17] FOR THIS REASON THE FATHER LOVES ME, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

…AND IT shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.


John 12:30-32 (KJV)
Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. [31] Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. [32] And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.



Rev. 12:5-12 (KJV)
…And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. [6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. [7] And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, [8] And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. [9] And THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD: HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.
[10] And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, NOW IS COME SALVATION, AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. [11] And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. [12] Therefore REJOICE, YE HEAVENS, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.


1 Cor. 15:23-28 (KJV)
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. [24] Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; WHEN HE SHALL HAVE PUT DOWN ALL RULE AND ALL AUTHORITY AND POWER. [25] For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. [26] THE LAST ENEMY THAT SHALL BE DESTROYED IS DEATH.
[27] For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
[28] And WHEN ALL THINGS SHALL BE SUBDUED UNTO HIM, THEN shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, THAT GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL.


Rev. 19:11-16 (KJV)
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and HIS NAME IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD.
[14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.



Isaiah 63:5 (KJV)
And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: THEREFORE MINE OWN ARM brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.



Isaiah 40:10 (KJV)
Behold, The LORD God will come with strong hand, AND HIS ARM SHALL RULE for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.


The “POWER Of God“— the “POWER from on High” has worked all of this salvation in the form of Jesus Christ:


1 Cor. 1:24 (KJV)
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, CHRIST THE POWER OF GOD, AND the wisdom of God.



Luke 1:41-55 (NASB)
And it came about that when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. [42] And she cried out with a loud voice, and said, “Blessed among women are you, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! [43] “And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? [44] “For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. [45] “And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.” [46] And Mary said:
“My soul exalts the Lord,
[47] And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
[48] “For He has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave;
For behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed.
[49] “For the Mighty One has done great things for me;
And holy is His name.
[50] “And HIS mercy is UPON GENERATION AFTER GENERATION
Toward those who fear Him.
[51] “HE has done mighty deeds WITH HIS ARM;
He has scattered those who were proud in the thoughts of their heart.
[52] “HE has brought down rulers from their thrones,
And has exalted those who were humble.
[53] “HE has filled the hungry with good things……

John 6:33-34 (KJV)
[33] For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. [34] Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. [35] And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: HE THAT COMETH TO ME SHALL NEVER HUNGER; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

……And sent away the rich empty-handed.

Matthew 19:16-23 (KJV)
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? [17] And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. [18] He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, [19] Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [20] The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? [21] Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
[22] BUT when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
[23] Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

……[54] “He has given help to Israel His servant, In remembrance of His mercy……

Hebrews 4:15-16 (KJV)
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. [16] Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.


……[55] As He spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and his offspring FOREVER.”……

Genesis 22:18 (KJV)
And in thy Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; BECAUSE THOU HAST OBEYED MY VOICE.

Galatians 3:16 (KJV)
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.




All of This is done THROUGH The POWER of The Most High God… The “Power from On High“…
The Spirit OF Jesus Christ IN YOU.


1 John 5:11-13 (KJV)
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
[12] HE THAT HATH THE SON hath life; and HE THAT HATH NOT the Son of God HATH NOT life……

2 Cor. 13:4-5 (NASB)
For indeed He was crucified because of weakness, yet He lives because of the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, yet we shall live with Him because of the power of God directed toward you. [5] Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you– unless indeed you fail the test?



……[13] These things have I written UNTO YOU THAT BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD; THAT YE MAY KNOW that ye have eternal life, and THAT YE MAY believe on the name of the Son of God.

Again, in summary:

This Study-Help has looked at what “The Truth” (“Thy Word is Truth”- Psalm 119:160, John 17:17) has answer for the question of, ‘WHAT is The Holy Spirit‘.

His Word has shown us the following about what HE (God) calls HIS “Holy Spirit“:
“The Holy Spirit”

“The POWER of The Most High”

“POWER From on High”

“Was NOT YET Given, BECAUSE JESUS was NOT YET ‘GLORIFIED'”

“Jesus Christ IS IN You”

“But We Have THE MIND OF CHRIST”

“The Holy Spirit, WHOM (-or which) The Father WILL SEND IN MY NAME”

“I will come to you”

“I am in The Father, and you in me, And I in YOU”

“A Spirit of ADOPTION as sons”

“God hath sent forth THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

“Sealed IN HIM WITH The Holy Spirit of Promise”

“THE LORD IS THAT SPIRIT”

“THE SPIRIT OF The Lord”
The HOLY SPRIT of God IS NOT another individual power, or some entity…

Dictionary- “Entity: That which is perceived or known or inferred TO HAVE ITS OWN PHYSICAL EXISTENCE (living or nonliving)”

BUT rather “The Holy Spirit” is literally “The Power from on High” (“The Power of God“)- which now exists inside each and every TRUE Christian, in the form of “THE MIND (- i.e. spirit) OF Christ” GLORIFIED!


2 Cor. 13:5 (NASB)
Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN YOU— unless indeed you fail the test?


There are NO “THREE in One”, There was only The One (- John 1:1; Philip. 2:6-7) from “the beginning”, and now in heaven there stands a “Father” AND a “Son” THROUGH that “Power” of The Creator, God The Father…
The Truth is that NOWHERE in Scripture does it even discuss the idea of a “Trinity“, nor a “Triune God“, but rather The Scriptures do discuss “The Two shall be One” through the “Power” that is in Jesus Christ, our Lord (The Holy Spirit- Holy Mind- of God inside His People).


Hebrews 10:16-17 (NASB)
“THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM
After those days, SAYS THE LORD:
I WILL PUT My LAWS UPON THEIR HEART,
AND upon their mind I WILL WRITE THEM,”
HE then says,
[17] “AND their sins and their lawless deeds I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.”



Ephes. 4:7-25 (KJV)
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. [8] Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. [9] (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? [10] He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, THAT HE MIGHT FILL ALL THINGS.) [11] And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; [12] For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: [13] Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: [14] That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; [15] But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: [16] From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. [17] This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, [18] Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: [19] Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. [20] But ye have not so learned Christ; [21] If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: [22] That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; [23] And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. [25] Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
