SURPRISING  THINGS  YOU  NEED  TO  KNOW  ABOUT  GOD



A Spirit Was Sent


The study of the Holy Spirit is called "pneumatology," which comes from the Greek words pneuma (meaning "spirit") and logos (meaning "doctrine").


The Hebrew word that is commonly translated "Spirit" literally means "wind" or "breath." Thus the "Spirit of God" is literally the invisible, active presence of God. You can hear the wind and see its result as it moves the branches of a tree, but you cannot see the wind itself. Similarly the actions of the Holy Spirit are evident in the lives of believers, even though we cannot see him directly.


[IF  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  IS  A  LITERAL  SEPARATE  INDIVIDUAL  FROM  THE  FATHER  AND  SON,  HOW  CAN  HE  BE  EVERYWHERE  AT  THE  SAME  TIME,  KINDA  LIKE  A  HUGE  WIND  IN  THE  UNIVERSE;  HOW   CAN  HE  BE  IN  EVERY  CHRISTIAN  EVERYWHERE  ON  EARTH.  WOULD  NOT  THIS  MEAN  IT  IS  HE  THAT  HAS  SOME  KIND  OF  POWER  COMING  FROM  HIM  LIKE  A  WIND  THAT  GOES  OUT  INTO  THE  UNIVERSE.  IF  SO  THEN  IT  IS  HE  AND  NOT  THE  FATHER  AND  CHRIST  THAT  LIVES  IN  US,  BUT  JESUS  SAID  THE  FATHER  AND  HIMSELF  WOULD  LIVE  IN  US (JOIHN 14:23).  IT  WAS THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  THAT  CAME  UPON  MARY  TO  CONCEIVE  JESUS  IN  HER,  SO  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  IS  THE  FATHER  OF  JESUS  AND  NOT  GOD  THE  FATHER…..SO  WE  ARE  BACK  TO  JESUS  PRAYING  TO  THE  WRONG  FATHER.  OF  COURSE  THE  TEACHERS  OF  “THE  TRINITY  IS  NOT  POSSIBLE  TO  UNDERSTAND”  PEOPLE,  WILL  ARGUE  DON’T  TRY  TO  UNDERSTAND  GOD  AND  THE  “TRINITY”  FOR  IT’S  NOT  POSSIBLE  TO  UNDERSTAND…..AND  SO  THE  CIRCLE  OF  REASONING  GOES  AROUND  AND  AROUND  -  Keith Hunt] 


The Spirit is a person. Before it can be decided that the Holy Spirit is God, it must first be established that he is a person, not a mere influence or divine power. And he truly is. Though the Greek term for spirit is neuter, Jesus in John 14:26 and 16:13-14 used the masculine pronoun "he" when speaking of the Holy Spirit. He also has the three essential elements of personality: intellect (1 Cor. 2:11), sensibilities (Rom. 8:27; 15:30), and will (1 Cor. 12:11). He can be tempted (Acts 5:9), lied to (Acts 5:3), grieved (Eph. 4: 30), resisted (Acts 7:51), insulted (Heb. 10:29), and blasphemed (Matt. 12:31-32).


[SEE  AGAIN  PROVERBS  CHAPTER  1  TO  3.  YES  AND  SO  BY  THE  SAME  TOKEN  WISDOM  IS  A  WOMAN,  CAN  SPEAK,  CAN  WALK  INTO  THE  STREETS,  UTTER  HER  VOICE,  SHE HAS  A  RIGHT  AND  LEFT  HAND.  SHE  IS  A  TREE  OF  LIFE  TO  THEM  THAT  TAKE  HOLD  OF  HER.  WISDOM  HAS  A  “SPIRIT”  SHE  CAN  POUR  OUT  TO  YOU.  SO  WISDOM  HAS  SOME  KIND  OF  HOLY  SPIRIT,  SOMETHING  THAT  CAN  COME  OUT  OF  HER  INTO  YOU.  THEN  WE  ARE  TOLD  IT  IS  THE  LORD  THAT  GIVES  WISDOM……  WOW,  ALLL   THESE  INDIVIDUALS  IN  THE  “ONE”  LORD!  AH  WELL,  GOD  IS  TOO  HARD  TO  UNDERSTAND  SOME  WILL  SAY,  AND  THE  “NOT  UNDERSTANDABLE”  TRINITY,  OR  QUARTET….THE  WHEEL  KEEPS  A  TURNING  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit is recognized as God. He is a divine person as can be shown by his attributes of deity: He is eternal (Heb. 9:14), omniscient (1 Cor. 2:10-11), omnipotent (Luke 1:35), and omnipresent (Ps. 139:7-10). Works of deity are also ascribed to him such as creation, regeneration, inspiration of the Scriptures, and raising of the dead.


[YA….AND  BY  THE  SAME  TOKEN,  WISDOM  COMES  FROM  GOD,  SO  WISDOM  IS  ETERNAL,  OMNISCIENT,  OMNIPOTENT  AND  OMNIPRESENT;  WISDOM  CAN  DO  MIGHTY  THINGS  ALSO,  WORKS  OF  GOD  TO  THOSE  WHO  TAKE  HOLD  OF HER.  SHE  CAN  WALK,  TALK,  CRY  IN  THE  STREETS,  BE  A  TREE  OF  LIFE—— SEE  AGAIN  PROVERBS  CHAPTER  1-3  -  Keith Hunt


Some groups (for example, the Jehovah's Witness cult) view the Holy Spirit as a "force" or "power," rather than as a person. However, that heresy grew largely from the translators of the King James Bible, who referred to the Spirit as "it."


[NOT  AT  ALL;  YES  “IT”  IS  USED  SOMETIMES  BY  THE  KJV  TRANSLATORS,  BUT  SO  IS  THE  WORD  “HE”  AS  THESE  AUTHORS  HAVE  POINTED  OUT,  TO  TRY  AND  PROVE  THEIR  TEACHING  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit has personality, as revealed by the fact that he has a will (1 Cor. 12:11), a mind (Rom. 8:27), knowledge (John 14:26), the ability to communicate (Acts 1:16), and emotions (Eph. 4:30). His personality is also demonstrated in the fact that he has a job: to teach, guide, restrain, comfort, and intercede on behalf of believers.


[YA….AND  BY  THE  SAME  TOKEN  WISDOM  HAS  KNOWLEDGE,  A  MIND,  THE  ABILITY  TO  COMMUNICATE,  AND  EMOTIONS  IN  TEACHING  AND  CRYING  OUT  IN  THE  STREETS;  WISDOM  CAN  GUIDE,  TEACH,  AND  HAS  A  JOB  TO  DO.  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  DOES  NOT  INTERCEDE  FOR  BELIEVERS!  THAT  IS  A  WRONG  UNDERSTAND  OF  ROMANS  8.  THERE  IS  ONLY  ONE  MEDIATOR  BETWEEN  GOD  THE  FATHER  AND  MANKIND - CHRIST JESUS (1  TIM.  2:3-6.  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  DID  NOT  BECOME  MAN,  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  DID  NOT  OVERCOME  SIN  IN  THE  FLESH,  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  DID  TAKE  ALL  HUMAN  SINS  AND  DIE  FOR  THEM,  WASHING  THEM  AWAY  WITH  HUMAN  BLOOD.  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  DID  NOT  DIE  AND  THEN  RESURRECTED.  AS  PAUL  TAUGHT  TIMOTHY,  THERE  IS  ONLY  ONE  MEDIATOR  BETWEEN  GOD  AND  MANKIND—— THE  MAN  CHRIST  JESUS.  A   KEY  TO  READING  THE  BIBLE,  FINDING  THE  TRUTH  ON  ANY  SUBJECT,  I.E.  “MEDIATOR  BETWEEN  HUMANS  AND  GOD”  IS  TO  FIND  ALL  OF  THE  VERSES  ON  THAT  SUBJECT  BEFORE  YOU  GIVE  AN  ANSWER.  AS  JESUS  SDAID,  IN  THE  LAST  DAYS,  MANY,  NOT  THE  FEW,  WOULD  COME  AND  DECEIVE  THE  MANY  NOT  THE  FEW—— CLASSIC  EXAMPLE  WE  FIND  RIGHT  HERE  -  Keith Hunt]


The New Testament reveals that the Spirit can be grieved, quenched, resisted, blasphemed, and insulted.


[YA…. BY  THE  SAME  TOKEN  WISDOM  AS  A  WOMAN,  HAS  ATTRIBUTES  THAT  A  PERSON  HAS,  AS  WE  SEE  IN  PROVERBS  CHAPTER  1-3  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit is referred to as "God" in Acts 5:3-4, as "Lord" in 2 Corinthians 3:18, and as being equal to the Father and the Son in Matthew 28:19.


[YES  OF  COURSE  AS  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  COMES  FROM  THE  BODY  OF  GOD,  COMES  OUT  OF  HIM,  AND  YES  ALSO  OUT  OF  CHRIST,  YOUJ  CAN  LIE  TO  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  AND  YOU  ARE  LYING  TO  GOD  AND  TO  CHRIST.  THESE  VERSES  GIVEN  DO  NOT  PROVE  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  IS  A  SEPARATE  PERSONAL  BEING  WITH  FORM  AND  SHAPE,  SEPARATE  FROM  GOD  THE  FATHER  AND  GOD  THE  SON.  THESE  VERSES  DO  NOT  PROVE  THERE  ARE  THREE  INDIVIDUAL  SPIRIT  BEINGS  SITTING  ON  A  THRONE  IN  HEAVEN.  THOSE  THAT  HAD  VISIONS  OF  THE  HEAVENLY  THRONE (LIKE  STEPHEN  IN  ACTS  7: 55;  AND  THE  APOSTLE  JOHN  IN  THE  BOOK  OF  REVELATION),  NEVER  SAW  A  THIRD  GOD  BEING  SITTING  NEXT  TO  THE  FATHER  GOD  AND  GOD  THE  SON—— JUST  AIN’T  THERE  IN  ANY  VISION  OF  GOD’S  THRONE  ANYWHERE  IN  THE  BIBLE  -  Keith Hunt]


Scripture reveals the divine attributes of the Holy Spirit, referring to him as eternal (Heb. 9:14), omniscient (John 14:26), omnipotent (Job 26:13), all wise (Isa. 40:13), sovereign (1 Cor. 12:11), and the giver of life (Rom. 8:2).


[I  GUESS  SO,  FOR  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  COMES  FORTH  FROM  THE  VERY  BODY  OF  THE  FATHER  AND  SON ;  HENCE  ALL  OF  THE  ABOVE  GIVEN  BY  THWE  AUTHORS  -  Keith Hunt]


One of the most common descriptors for the Holy Spirit is the name "Comforter." This comes from the Greek word paracletes, which literally means "one who comes alongside." The Holy Spirit is God's way of personally coming alongside each believer (see John 15:26).


[YES  OF  COURSE  FOR  IT  IS  GOD  THE  FATHER  AND  GOD  THE  SON,  ACTUALLY  LIVING  INSIDE (ONE  STEP  UP  FROM  “ALONGSIDE”  IF  YOU  WILL);  LIVING  INSIDE  EACH  BELIEVER,  EACH  TRUE  CHILD  OF  GOD  THE  FATHER  -  JOHN  15:  23—— NOTE  BEFORE  VERSE  26.  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  IS  THE  EXTENSION  OF  THE  FATHER  AND  SON;  IT  IS  THEIR  MIND,  THEIR  NATURE,  THEIR  POWER,  IN  EVERY  TRUE  CHRISTIAN  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit is referred to as our "guide" in several New Testament passages. This reveals the Spirit's job of leading believers into maturity in Christ. As John 16:13 puts it, "The Spirit of truth . . . will guide you ..."


[YES  OF  COURSE—— IT  IS  THE  VERY  NATURE  OF  GOD  COMING  FROM  HIS  VERY  BEING  INTO  HIS  CHILDREN.  AND  BY  THE  SAME  TOKEN  WISDOM  AS  GIVEN  IN  PROVERBS  1-3,  MUST  ALSO  BE  A  PERSON,  A  WOMAN  WOULD  YOU  KNOW;  WELL  GOD  HAS  TO  GIVE  A  FAIR  SHAKE  TO  THE  FEMALE  SPECIES;  THINK  YOU  GET  BY  NOW  MY  SARCASM  -  Keith Hunt]


Romans 8:26-27 describes the Holy Spirit as our intercessor. In that role he will reveal the Father's will, pray with us, and connect us to the Father.


[WOW….. WHAT  A  THEOLOGICAL  BLUNDER!  AGAIN  NOT  GETTING  ALL  THE  VERSES  ON  ANY  TOPIC  THE  BIBLE  COVERS—— A  VERY  BAD  BLUNDER  INDEED.  1  TIMOTHY  2:5  IS  THE  ONE  THEY  MISSED!  AS  FOR  ROMANS….. THEY  MISSED  ANOTHER  KEY  FOR  CORRECT  BIBLE  UNDERSTANDING—— CONTEXT,  CONTEXT  AND  CONTEXT!  OKAY  READ  ROMANS  8:  26, 27.  THE  SPIRIT” —— MAKES  INTERCESSION—— NOW   READ  ON…..TO  VERSE  34——  THE  SPIRIT  OF  VERSE  26,  IS  CHRIST  WHO  MAKES  INTERCESSION  FOR  US!

NO  CONTRADICTION  HERE  WITH  1  TIMOTHY  2: 5!    

THERE  IS  ONLY  ONE  INTERCESSOR  BETWEEN  GOD  AND  MANKIND—— THE  MAN  CHRIST  JESUS!  Keith Hunt]


The work of the Holy Spirit is evident in creation (see Gen. 1:2, 26), in the inspiration of Scripture (see 2 Tim. 3:16 and 2 Peter 1:21), and in the salvation of humankind (see John 7:38-39).


[YA…. I  GUESS  SO;  AS  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  COMES  FROM  THE  VERY  SPIRIT  BODY  OF  THE  FATHER  AND  SON;  AS  AN  EXTENSION  OF  THEIR  NATURE  AND  POWER  AND  MIND,  IT  IS  EVERYWHERE  DOING  WHAT  THEY  WILL  EVERYWHERE,  PHYSICALLY  AND  SPIRITUALLY,  DOING  BOTH  IN  THE  ENTIRE  UNIVERSE  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit was active in the Old Testament. He empowered Gideon in Judges 6:34, Samson in Judges 14:6, and David in 1 Samuel 16:13.


[YA…..I  GUESS SO,  IT  IS  THE  MIND,  AND  POWER  OF  THE  TWO  BEINGS  IN   THE  GODHEAD——  GOING  FORTH  TO  DO  THE  ACTIVITIES  THE  GODHEAD  WANTS  DONE  -  Keith Hunt]


"Quenching the Spirit" is referred to in several passages of Scripture, including 1 Thessalonians 5:19, Psalm 51, and 1 Samuel 16:14. Sin, particularly secret sin in the life of a believer, will prevent the Spirit from working in one's life.


[YA….. GUESS  SO….. SIN  NOT  REPENTED  OF,  DOES  DISCONNECT  YOU  FROM  THE   NATURE  OF  GOD  WORKING  IN  YOU  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit became manifest in the lives of believers

on the day of Pentecost, when he came upon the members of the early church and allowed them to speak in other tongues so that everyone in the crowd heard their own language (see Acts 2).


[YA….. AND  THIS  THIRD  INDIVIDUAL  IN  HEAVEN  MADE  HIMSELF  INTO  CLOVEN  TONGUES  AS  LIKE  FIRE,  AND  DIVIDED  HIMSELF  INTO  12  PIECES  TO  SIT  UPON  EACH  APOSTLE.  YOU  TALK  ABOUT  “DON’T  TRY  TO  UNDERSTAND  THE  TRINITY,  IT’S  IMPOSSIBLE”  -  THIS  SURE  MAKES  THIS  THIRD  SEPARATE  PERSON  FROM  FATHER  AND  SON,  A  SCIENCE  FICTION  EXPERT  OF  UNMATCHED  ABILITY;  NO  WONDER  ATHEISTS  LAUGH  AT  THE  BIBLE,  WHEN  YOU  HAVE  CRAZY  THEOLOGY  ABOUT  AS  STRANGE  AS  THIS  ONE  CONCERNING  A  THIRD  PERSON  IN  HEAVEN  CALLED  “HOLY  SPIRIT”  AND  A  WOMAN  GAL  CALLED  WISDOM  THAT  GOES  OUT  INTO  THE  STREETS  TAKING  AWAY——  WOW,  I’VE  NEVER  RAN  INTO  HER  YET,  MUST  BE  SHE  IS  STILL  IN   ANOTHER  COUNTRY,  OR  HAS  NEVER  YET  MADE  IT  TO  MY  CITY——  YEP  BEING  SARCASTIC  ONCE  MORE  -  Keith Hunt]        


"And be not drunk with wine. . . but be filled with the Spirit," Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:18. The "filling of the Spirit" is likened to being drunk, since control of our lives is turned over to something else—in this case, God. Some charismatic and Pentecostal groups believe this is a regular event in the lives of believers, while most other believers see the filling of the Spirit as a one-time event, occurring at the moment of salvation.


[WELL  ALL  KINDS  OF  PEOPLE  HAVE  SILLY  IDEAS  ABOUT  ALL  KINDS  OF  THINGS  CONCERNING  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  -   Keith Hunt]


One of the activities of the Holy Spirit is to provide believers with spiritual gifts. Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 12 both describe a number of gifts the Spirit gives to believers, including wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, tongues, interpretation, serving, teaching, discerning, and encouraging. While each believer has been given at least one spiritual gift, no one has a right to ask for a particular gift. These gifts blend together in a church to bring unity to the body of Christ.


[YA…. THE  VERY  NATURE,  MIND,  AND  POWER  OF  GOD  COMING  FROM  HIS  VERY  BODY  CAN  DO,  DOES  DO,  ALL  KINDS  OF  MIRACULOUS  THINGS  IN  INDIVIDUALS  LIVES,  AND  IN  THE  WHOLE  UNIVERSE,  AS  GOD  WILLS  -  Keith Hunt]


The Holy Spirit also produces ‘fruit’ in the lives of believers. Galatians 5:22-23 details some of the fruit that is produced: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.


[YA…. GUESS  INDEED  SO!  I  MEAN  IF  YOU  HAVE  GOD  THE  FATHER  AND  CHRIST  IN  YOU  VIA  THEIR  HOLY  SPIRIT,  YOU  WILL  PRODUCE  THEIR  NATURE,  JUST  NOT  POSSIBLE  TO  BE  ANY  OTHER  WAY  -  Keith Hunt]


"Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit" is sometimes referred to as "the unpardonable sin." According to Matthew 12:22-32, Mark 3:22-30, and Luke 12:10, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit refers to examining the clear, supernatural work of God and ascribing it to Satan.


[YA….. AND  HAVE  A  FULL  STUDY  ON  THAT  TOPIC  OF  THE  BIBLE  ALSO  ON  THIS  WEBSITE  -  Keith Hunt]


The Spirit was active all along from the beginning of time, hovering over the waters at creation and inspiring God's messengers throughout the Old Testament history—378 passages in the Hebrew Bible mention the Spirit.


[YA….. AND  IT  IS  IN  THE  FEMALE  GENDER!  SO  NOW  YOU  HAVE  GROUPS  THAT  HAVE  SPRUNG  UP,  THAT  WANT  TO  MAKE  A  HUGE  BIG  DOCTRINE  ABOUT  “DO  YOU  KNOW  GOD  IS  FEMALE?”  ALL  KINDS  OF   LANGUAGES  HAVE  “MALE”  OR  “FEMALE”   WORDS  FOR  THIS  AND  THAT;  BUT  THAT  DOES  NOT  MEAN  THEY  LITERALLY  ARE  MALE  AND  FEMALE.  AND  AS  I’VE  STATED  BEFORE  WE  THINK  NOTHING  OF  CALLING  OUR  CAR  OR  BOAT  A  MALE  OR  FEMALE  NAME,  OR  SAY  THINGS  LIKE,  “OLD  MOLLY  MY  CAR,  JUST  DID  NOT  WANT  TO  START  IN  THIS  -30  WEATHER  TODAY.”


THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  IS  AN  INVISIBLE  [EVEN  IN  THE  SPIRIT  WORLD  IT  IS  INVISIBLE,  CAN  NEVER  BE  SEEN  PER  SE;  GOD  CAN  REPRESENT  IT  ASS  LIKE  A  DOVE  OR  CLOVEN  TONGUES  OR  WHATEVER]  EXTENSION  OF  THE  VERY  NATURE,  POWER,  MIND,  OF  GOD;  IT  GOES  FORTH  FROM  THE  FATHER  AND  SON,  INTO  ALL  THE  UNIVERSE  TO  DO  THE  WILL  OF  FATHER  AND  SON;  HENCE  IT  CAN  BE  ANYWHERE  AT  ANY  TIME,  OR  ANYWHERE  ALL  THE  TIME;  IT  CAN  BE  IN  EACH  INDIVIDUAL  CHILD  OF  THE  FATHER.  IT  IS  NOT  POSSIBLE  FOR  A  THIRD  SEPARATE  INDIVIDUAL  FROM  THE  FATHER  AND  SON,  TO  BE  EVERYWHERE  AT  THE  SAME  TIME  IN  THE  UNIVERSE.  IF  SO  THEN  THAT  THIRD  PERSON  BEING,  MUST  HAVE  SOME  KIND  OF  NATURE  THAT  FLOWS  FROM  HIS  BODY  OUT  INTO  ALL  THE  UNIVERSE;  THEN  THAT  IDEA  MAKES  THIS  THIRD  PERSON  THE  FATHER  OF  JESUS  AS  HE  CAME  UPON  MARY  TO  IMPREGNATE  HER  WITH  JESUS,  AND  NOT  GOD  THE  FATHER.  


OF  COURSE  WE  THEN  STILL  HAVE  THOSE  WHO  THROW  UP  THEIR  HANDS  AND  SAY,   “THE  TRINITY  IS  NOT  UNDERSTANDABLE,  SO  DO  NOT  TRY  TO  UNDERSTAND  IT”  WHICH  MAKES  THE  ATHEISTS  LAUGH  AT  THE  BIBLE  AND  CHRISTIAN  THEOLOGY.


THE  TRUTH  OF  THE  MATTER  IS:  GOD  CAN  BE  UNDERSTOOD,  HE  WANTS  US  TO  UNDERSTAND  THE  GODHEAD;  HE  WANTS  US  TO  KNOW  WHO  IS  IN  THE  GODHEAD  AND  WHO  IS  NOT;  HE  WANTS  US  TO  UNDERSTAND  WHY  THE  GODHEAD  CREATED  MANKIND;  HE  WANTS  YOU  TO  KNOW  WHY  YOU  WERE  BORN,  AND  WHAT  YOUR  ULTIMATE  DESTINY  CAN  BE.


ALL  OF  THAT  TRUTH  IS  FOUND  ON  THIS  WEBSITE.


HE  THAT  HAS  EARS  TO  HEAR  WITH  SHOULD  HEAR;  HE  THAT  HAS  EYES  TO  SEE  WITH  SHOULD  SEE!
