The following scriptures are what lead me to believe that the Holy Spirit, the Ruach HaKodesh, IS the SOUL OF GOD, YHVH!!!
I know it’s not commonly spoken of in this way, so I listed off a few of my favorite scriptures for you to read, and take in yourself, so that YOU can make up your own mind……
Paul supposedly wrote Ephesians, Corinthians and Romans, possibly using a scribe since he was in chains…lol
Luke supposedly wrote Acts, and Matthew, the tax collector, supposedly wrote Matthew (although personally I cannot name one accountant I know who is also a writer…hehehe):
Eph. 4:4-6, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.”
2 Cor. 3:16-18, “but whenever a man turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.”
Rom. 8:9, “However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.”
NOTE in the one above, the SPIRIT OF CHRIST is written, so … IF YESHUA, or Jesus, IS GOD ALSO, IN THE TRINITY, HIS SPIRIT MUST ALSO BE the same as GODS!
Matt. 10:20, “For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.”
Rom. 8:11, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you.”
1 Cor. 2:11, “For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.”
Acts 5:32, “And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
AND LAST BUT MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE…..
Matt. 12:32, “And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come.”
Why do you suppose IT WAS UNFORGIVABLE to speak a word against the Holy Spirit??? I BELIEVE it was because IT WAS THE EPITOME of HOLINESS, and yes, GOD’s OWN SOUL! It is repeatedly said, GOD’s SPIRIT can dwell in us!!!
WHAT IS HIS SPIRIT, IF NOT THE ABSOLUTELY HOLIEST SPIRIT THERE IS????????????? THE HOLY SPIRIT!
It just makes sense to me, COMMON sense, which I have a boatload! Not much brain, just a lot of common sense. lolololol at least I think I do! So there you go, Doc, tell me what you think….grasshopper??? lol
