Holy Spirit

Matthew 28:19,20 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations,+ baptizing them+ in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you.+ And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.”*+

The Two People, Yehowah God and 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)

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.

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.

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.

(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 not a person

Jesus baptism

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.”

There are two people involved. Yehowah and his first created Son, the master worker, Michael the Archangel who later became Jesus Christ.

Note: holy spirit is not a person, it is the active force of God, it is sent, at Jesus’ baptism it was visually represented in bodily form like a dove not as a person. This was done so John could identify Jesus as the Messiah. It 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.

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

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.
