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…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—— 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!
