Holy Spirit

The Two People, Yehowah and Yehohshua (The Lord Jesus Christ)

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:20 Now there is no mediator when just one person is involved, but God is only one.

Moses was the mediator between God and the ancient nation of Israel. Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and all faithful mankind.

God and a mediator, two separate people. (1 Corinthians 15:24)

If God was a trinity there would be no need for a mediator.

Holy Spirit

What is the holy spirit?

A comparison of Bible texts that refer to the holy spirit shows that it is spoken of as ‘filling’ people; they can be ‘baptized’ with it; and they can be “anointed” with it. (Luke 1:41; Matt. 3:11; Acts 10:38) None of these expressions would be appropriate if the holy spirit were a person.

Jesus also referred to the holy spirit as a “helper” (Greek, pa·raʹkle·tos), and he said that this helper would “teach,” “bear witness,” “speak,” and ‘hear.’ (John 14:16, 17, 26; 15:26; 16:13) It is not unusual in the Scriptures for something to be personified. For example, wisdom is said to have “children.” (Luke 7:35) Sin and death are spoken of as being kings. (Rom. 5:14, 21) While some texts say that the spirit “spoke,” other passages make clear that this was done through angels or humans. (Acts 4:24, 25; 28:25; Matt. 10:19, 20; compare Acts 20:23 with 21:10, 11.) At 1 John 5:6-8, not only the spirit but also “the water and the blood” are said to ‘bear witness.’ So, none of the expressions found in these texts in themselves prove that the holy spirit is a person.

The correct identification of the holy spirit must fit all the scriptures that refer to that spirit. With this viewpoint, it is logical to conclude that the holy spirit is the active force of God. It is not a person but is a powerful force that God causes to emanate from himself to accomplish his holy will.—Ps. 104:30; 2 Pet. 1:21; Acts 4:31.

Scientists have learned that matter is a concentrated form of energy. This is demonstrated with the explosion of nuclear weapons. Astrophysicist Josip Kleczek states:
“Most and possibly all elementary particles may be created by materialization of energy.”—The Universe (Boston, 1976), Vol. 11, p. 17.
From where could such energy come? After asking, “Who has created these things [the stars and planets]?”, the Bible states regarding Yehowah God, “Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one of them is missing.” (Isa. 40:26) So God himself is the Source of all the “dynamic energy” that was needed to create the universe.

That includes humans.

First it must be understood that only God can send holy spirit. It’s because it gives the one receiving it his qualities. He would not create anyone with the ability to send it, not even the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not even possible. It is the life force of God. God’s spirit, when not materialized into anything, gives the person God’s qualities.

Holy spirit has been called dynamic energy, God’s active force. It is the most powerful force in existence. Yehowah’s limitless power or strength along with holy spirit is what most people don’t understand. If you have enough power you can materialize energy. Even the materialization of the physical universe did not diminish Yehowah’s power. Yehowah is “limitless” in power or strength. It is the nature of God. Only Yehowah is Almighty God, almighty in power.

God’s power is his strength, do not try to use any other analogy.

Isaiah 40:26 “Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number; He calls them all by name. Because of his vast dynamic energy and his awe-inspiring power, Not one of them is missing.

Watch Tower Review Items

Kingdom Ministry November 2009 Page 2 Paragraph 5

5 As Kingdom proclaimers, may we always “be aglow with the spirit.” Let us cultivate zeal through personal Bible study and fervent prayer to Yehowah, the one who can supply us with dynamic holy spirit. In this way, we can zealously carry out our ministry “with holy spirit and strong conviction.”—1 Thess. 1:5.

Watchtower Magazine 2011 December 15 Pages 13-14 Paragraph 5

This spirit is energy from God projected and exerted on people or things to accomplish his will.

Insight on the Scriptures Volume 2 Page 1020

“Force,” … describes energy projected and exerted on persons or things, and may be defined as “an influence that produces or tends to produce motion, or change of motion.” (John 16:13) 13 However, when that one arrives, the spirit of the truth, he will guide YOU into all the truth, for he will not speak of his own impulse, but what things he hears he will speak, and he will declare to YOU the things coming.

https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2010734?q=personification&p=par

The Bible often uses a figure of speech called personification​—that is, speaking of something inanimate as if it were alive. …

And according to John 14:26, when Jesus spoke of the holy spirit as a helper, or teacher, he was using a figure of speech called personification.

Holy spirit is dynamic energy. Don’t think of it as conventional energy. This is the mistake people make, trying to create an analogy of it when there is nothing to compare it to. It is the life force of God. Yehowah can materialize anything that he can imagine.

In the review above, Watch Tower has said “dynamic holy spirit” and that spirit is “energy from God”. Well put it together, then. Dynamic energy. There is no heat involved. If God creates an element in such a way that it produces heat, that does not mean that holy spirit involves heat. “Force” describes this energy according to Insight on the Scriptures. This is because God can use it in a motivating way and can control the smallest particle to the largest known physical thing, the universe. God creates elements, materializing them. He creates them with whatever attribute is needed, as with the sun. God is a person with a mind. He himself is not in the things created separate from himself. He can materialize anything he can imagine. That’s all I have surmised. Everything is clean, holy and pure when pertaining to God. Nothing strange is happening. He is a person who is Almighty in power. Holy spirit is the life force of God and he is willing to send it to us. When not materialized into anything it gives a person God’s qualities and unlimited ability. If it is scriptural and according to God’s will at the time, anything is possible with holy spirit. With faith and God’s backing, it is even possible to materialize matter. However, some things are not scriptural at this time.

1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails. But if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

I was told these things so people could relate to God, as a person who is our Father and as Almighty God.

This is the answer to the universal question.

From where does life originate?

From God himself. Life is holy.

and Yehowah is God.

God has a perfect memory and cannot remember a beginning. Therefore he is eternal. He cannot die. From time indefinite until time indefinite He is God. He knows he cannot die, because if He has always existed, He always will exist.

Time is like a river, it just goes on and on

There’s only one direction, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.

But Yehowah can foretell what will happen. He can think faster than time itself. Humans cannot.

“I am a person, my love is what I am”, says the Sovereign Lord Yehowah God the Almighty.

It was with the loving voice of a kind Father that he told me these words.

Song: My Father, My God and Friend

(Hebrews 6:10)

Life in this world can be hard. Life in this world can bring tears and pain. Still ev’ry day I will say, “My life is not in vain.”
(CHORUS) For God is not unrighteous, And he remembers the love I’ve shown. So he is ever near me; With Yehowah, I’m not alone. Yes, God is my provider and my protector down to the end. Yes, Yehowah is my Father, My God and Friend.
2. Gone are the days of my youth; Days of calamity now are here. Still through the eyes of my faith, My hope is bright and clear. (Chorus)

Holy spirit is sent

Holy spirit is always sent separately from God. At Jesus baptism it was sent in the form of a dove to identify Jesus as the Messiah or Christ. This was a one time event, holy spirit is normally invisible. It does demonstrate that holy spirit is not a person and that it is sent, it is not umbilical. See, these things aren’t written in the Bible for nothing.

Luke 3:22 and the holy spirit in bodily form like a dove came down upon him, and a voice came out of heaven: “You are my Son, the beloved; I have approved you.”

When holy spirit is not materialized into anything it gives a person God’s qualities. (He is a person, a being, an individual with a personality. He lives in a specific place, Heaven. He is not in you, holy spirit is NOT a person, it is the active force of God, his life force). God’s mind and personality are his own. He does not enter you. This is the blaspheme of the trinity, that holy spirit is a person. Don’t believe it.

We can express emotional love by means of a unique nervous system, we have two sets of nerves. But we need holy spirit to have God’s qualities.

Holy spirit is located between the mind and the brain and does not touch the body.

I had a vision of the location of holy spirit at a district(now regional) convention.

It was more beautiful than you can imagine, like the color of fire and a rainbow at the same time. Holy spirit is normally invisible.

God’s holy spirit is sent. It is not umbilical (not connected to people) It is located behind the brain, between the brain and the mind but not touching the body.

 

It is not active during intimate or private things as per God’s command. He has absolute control over it and with his mind directs it to do whatever he wants it to do. He has directed it not to be active during these times. We have privacy when we are not communing with God. Don’t worry, he knows our geographical location.

2 Samuel 23:2 2 The spirit of Yehowah spoke through me;aHis word was on my tongue.b

Do not be afraid of anything. God wants all people to have this understanding.

He is not the monster the world has made him out to be. He is a father first. He loves us very much. To fear God is to not want to displease him. It does not mean to be afraid of him. You can talk to him about any subject fearlessly but be respectful and if it is too aweful, just tell him you have troubling thoughts in your mind you need help with. He will understand.

One day we will only have joyful experiences to pray about.

Revelation 21:3,4 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.

Father created us in a way we would be comfortable with him as our Father. He did not create us in a way that we would ever feel uncomfortable about anything personal. He is a father first, almighty in power and even though he is a million miles away it is like nothing to him. Like any father he likes to hear from his children. He will watch us if we ask him to in some situation like a hospital or something or if we want him to watch us playing music or being funny or something. After opening a prayer if you want to have a fun time with Father during the day you can stay in prayer. You can end your prayer at any time if you need to, but always remember to thank him the proper way, in Yehohshua’s name. Please accept this explanation. We have privacy. Father dignifies us with it. He is only a thought or a prayer away if we need him or want to talk to him. He loves us very much.

Acts 17:28 For by him we have life and move and exist, even as some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also his children.’

It actuates our mind which does the rest. At this time in history there is no materialization that occurs such as a miracle cure. It is not scriptural “at this time”. Miracle cures will be happening after Armageddon in the Paradise just as Jesus demonstrated while on Earth. However, besides the physical aspect of miracles cures, we benefit in many ways even today.

Acts 4:31 And when they had made supplication, the place where they were gathered together was shaken, and they were one and all filled with the holy spirit and were speaking the word of God with boldness.

Merriam Webster: “fill” – to supply with a full complement

So you could say:

Acts 4:31 And when they had made supplication, the place where they were gathered together was shaken, and they were one and all supplied with a full complement of the holy spirit and were speaking the word of God with boldness.

It does not fill your body.

The active force of God is the active force of God, not a male person, whether it is used to convey his thoughts or not. It actuates the mind only. God can guide our thoughts by means of holy spirit but it (holy spirit) is always “sent” as in the case of the dove at Jesus’ baptism. But he can also guide our thoughts to express his thoughts. This is what is happening with me. It’s a helper in every possible imaginable way and is limitless in power.

Yehowah Sends His Spirit at Pentecost in Jesus’ name

Jesus did not personally send holy spirit.

Acts 2:33 33 Therefore because he was exalted to* the right hand of God and received the promised holy spirit from the Father, he has poured out this which YOU see and hear.

John 14:26 26 But the helper, the holy spirit, “which the Father will send” “in my name”, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you.

There you have it, Jesus explained what would happen when he went to Heaven and presented the Father with the value of The Ransom Sacrifice.
This matches what was said in Joel. God is the only one to “literally” pour out holy spirit.

Acts 1:16,17 16 On the contrary, this is what was said through the prophet Joel: 17 ‘“And in the last days,” God says, “I will pour out some of my spirit on every sort of flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy and your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams,+ 18 and even on my male slaves and on my female slaves I will pour out some of my spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.+

Jesus figuratively poured out holy spirit by offering to God the value of the ransom sacrifice and requesting holy spirit for his disciples. God granted his request and sent it.

John 14:16
16 And I will ask the Father and he will give you another helper* to be with you forever,

John 14:26
26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you.+

That is what this is all about.
I don’t care how accurate you believe your translation to be if it is not accurate knowledge. Holy spirit is not a person whether God sends his thoughts by means of it or not. It is the active force of God. The most powerful force in existence. It is sent.

The translation must conform to the truth, before it can be doctrinal. No matter how wonderfully accurate you might think it is, if it does not convey the truth, it is nothing. This is the most accurate knowledge ever written about it.

Holy spirit is sent from God.

The term “filled with” holy spirit

Acts 4:31 And when they had made supplication, the place where they were gathered together was shaken, and they were one and all filled with the holy spirit and were speaking the word of God with boldness.

So you could say:

Acts 4:31 And when they had made supplication, the place where they were gathered together was shaken, and they were one and all supplied with a full complement of the holy spirit and were speaking the word of God with boldness.

It does not fill your body.

What about amazing feats of strength like Samson?

We have very limited power on our own. Holy spirit is doing it, not the person.

God will command holy spirit to do what you want it to do if it is according to his will.

My prayer for you:

May people come to know you Father and the one you sent forth, your Son, Yehohshua. If they have come to know you as their father, then everything will work out for them the way you want it to. Please bless these ones because they love you and your Son and appreciate everything you have done for us. In the name of your dear son, Yehohshua, amen.

After the thousand year reign of Yehohshua (The Lord Jesus Christ) those who pass the final test will be adopted by God as perfect sons and daughters. As such, they will no longer require a mediator so will not be required to pray in Yehohshua’s name. We will speak to God directly like Adam and Eve did before they sinned. But we will always remember it was the Lord’s sacrifice that made it possible. It might be nice to thank our Father each time anyway. “Thank you for the sacrifice of Yehohshua”, would be a nice way to end a conversation with him.

Regarding the end of the thousand years, Yehohshua will hand over a perfect Earth and perfected men and women to his Father, having completed all the work his Father gave him to do.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28 24 Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power.z 25 For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet.a 26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.b 27 For God “subjected all things under his feet.”c But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’d it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him.e 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him,f that God may be all things to everyone.g

Bible Slants

Advanced Bible Study: Get out your Bibles!

A Bible slant is an intentional manipulation of a Bible scripture to have it conform to a certain doctrine or belief. It is a human invention.

Bible slants are very subtle. Note this one in the New International Version(NIV).

Zechariah 4:6 ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit.’ says the LORD Almighty

The capitalization of spirit as a slant intended to say that God’s spirit is a person and not his active force. It’s just the way that particular Bible is written.

The same thing occurs in New International Version (NIV) at John 15:26 capitalization of spirit.

New World Translation (NWT) says “Not by a military force, nor by power, but by my spirit, Yehowah of armies has said,

Note the small “s” (New World Translation published by Yehowah’s Witnesses) is correct.
