    What Is The Holy Spirit?

    palanorjposted 3 years ago

    You cannot begin to grasp the Holy Spirit without grappling with the entire trinity.

    God, the Father, is the first revealed aspect of God. Usually when we just generically refer to God, we are referring to the Father. God, the Son, is the Word of God or more precisely the Logos of the Father. Logos is a more encompassing word than "word" in English. It can mean speech and reason. One way its been put is that God knowledge or awareness of Himself is so perfect that it is not an idea, but is another person.

    Now to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the love the Father has for the Son and the love that the Son has for the Father. Again, it's existence is so perfect is it not a mere emotion or sentiment, but a person.

    Thus in understanding how the Trinity always works in that the Father sends the Son through the power of the Holy Spirit. So in Genesis, when it says "And God said let there be light" and there was light, it is through God's Word that things come into being and it is through his love that the Word is sent out to create (God's spirit is mentioned in Genesis before the first words of creation are spoken).

    The same comes with the incarnation of Christ. Through the power of the Holy Spirit (God's love), the Word of God becomes flesh.

      Norine pray more for yourself and speak truth not traditional doctrines. Better to be very sure of what you say, because you will be accountable as everyone else.
      Just like a doctor who practice and say wrong diagnosis
      He is held accountable.

    This is a most interesting question. I hope some bible oriented linear thinking types will give us some "definitions" with citations. It first caught my eye because of "what". I never thought of the Holy Spirit as a thing. And then I was even more interested by the absence at the end of: "to you". I would think the generally thought of way to ask this question is "Who is the Holy Spirit to you?".
    Seemingly a Spirit does not exist in the material. Our way of speaking of a spirit would defy a concrete definition. Our natural primal senses cannot experience a spirit and our words are about describing our natural experiences.
    So my straightforward answer to this question is; There is no such thing.

    The Holy Spirit is God's active force , he uses his force to get things done.
    Example ( Jg 14:6 Then Jehovah’s spirit empowered him, and he tore it in two, just as someone tears a young goat in two with his bare hands. But he did not tell his father or mother what he had done.)
    Also in Ge 1:2 Now the earth was formless and desolate, and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God’s active force was moving about over the surface of the waters.

    King James Version
    Ge 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
    simple God power is his active force known as his spirit.

    Also Jesus said that God would send a helper. That helper was the power of God that allowed them to speak in a foreign language instantly without any education .
    Also note that in this wonderful vision mention by John who does he see .
    New World Translation
    Re 3:5 The one who conquers will thus be dressed in white garments, and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life, but I will acknowledge his name before my Father and before his angels.
    Notice the holy spirit is not mention , because it is not a person . But God's force of power.

    The word holy simply mean "complete" and spirit means "the intended understanding of," thus, holy spirit means to man on earth, "the complete understanding of the purpose of everything on earth."  Another term for holy spirit is wise (Daniel 12:10) or wisdom which require one to forsake all "Judgmental Adjectives" like good/evil, pretty/ugly, right/wrong and the others which has nothing concrete to cause all man to call the same things either so some man will call something one thing while other man will call it the other. 

    The life-force of all life is also called holy spirit or the "comforter" which will bring all things to one's remembrance (John 14:26).  During our multitude of incarnations all experiences are recorded on one's life-force and after the metamorphosis or new birth it will begin to teach the conscious mind OF MAN how to understand the things we experience.

    To Understand the Holy Spirit Is to Understand the Fracture of Time And Space. The Holy Spirit is as The0NatureBoy has said the completeness of that which is to Come or the Comforter. Time and Space are collapsing back onto ITSELF! GOD has been separated form the whole of HIS creation as It can not all continue together in One Place, Time, or Dimension. For HIS Creation has been divided. The Holy Spirit Is GOD as GOD was in the beginning. Before It Became Necessary for GOD to Have the Begotten Son In Heaven and In Earth. As an Avatar or a likeness that would not obliterate the Falseness that Crept In. Which was Pride and Its refusal to repent back unto truth!.
    It is said the the Holy Spirit Lives within in you and most believe It resides within in Ones Heart.
    Keep In Mind everything Once Belonged to GOD all Souls belong to HIM And Still Do because they can not exist without HIM. GOD is the same But the World Around what HE has created has Changed. The Change was cause by the War in Heaven. That War was About Powers, Thrones, and Principalities. 1/3rd of Heaven was dispatched from the other 2/3rds This started a Need for a repair or a "Correction" Some Part of that 1/3rd refused Correction Or repentance. Time and Space were fractured. The Holy Spirit is simply the reconnecting of GOD to All of His Creation. When one is reconnected they may not feel a bit of difference in their physical Human bodies but they will receive Blessings and Gifts though they may go unnoticed still. Jesus Promised to send another in HIS stead this Is the HOLY Spirit. I call IT the Comforter today as HE Is not yet reunited with The Rest of Time and Space. The recurrence is slated to come about after the Millennium for all of us that remain after the Second Coming. Which is right before the Millennium and the Great White Throne of Judgement "The Mercy Seat" or the Seat of Mercy GOD's Throne the Highest Throne That IS. The Holy Spirit is of The Last of the Three Ages or the Three Periods of Time Before the Fall, the Present, and After the Correction. After the Correction Heaven Will Be Re-Born As It Once Was Perfected. GOD can Again Walk Amongst HIS creation with Causing It to be Obliterated, Removed, Or remodeled and restored. The War Caused a Need for the The Beginning of TIME In the Beginning was the Word GOD spoke and the Heavens were created. This Present Heaven and Earth shall Pass away will die and be reborn into a Forever Heaven and Earth That shall never Pass a way.

    a teacher
    a helper
    a jogger of the memory
    one that brings gifts
    a leader
    the power behind God's will
    Causes birth
    Gives life
    is truth
    will guide
    attributes of God
    searches and knows all truth
    the thoughts of God

    The question should have been "WHO" is the Holy Spirit" rather than "WHAT" Is The Holy Spirit?"  However, to answer your question first, The Holy Spirit's function ("What" He Is!) is found in John the 16th Chapter!  {Paraphrasing}  The disciples were sad when Jesus told them that ..."He was going His way to Him that sent Him" (v6), and (v7) "It's best I do, for if I go not, the Comforter (Holy Spirit) will not come; but if I go, "I" (Repeat "I!") WILL SEND HIM UNTO YOU."  (NOTE:  John 14:26 says "...whom "THE FATHER" (Repeat "The Father!") WILL SEND "IN MY NAME..." (JESUS)!  If "THE FATHER" will send in John 14:26 and "JESUS" WILL SEND in John 16:13, CAN'T ALL "SEE" JESUS IS GOD?"  Forget "teachings" Saints - "Study!")  (v12) "I have many things to tell you but you can't BEAR them now."  The Holy Spirit will "reveal" them when we "truly" seek revelation!  (v13) Nevertheless, when he, the "Spirit of Truth," (The function of the Holy Spirit which gives "revelation of His Word!") is come, he will "guide you into ALL truth... and he will show you things to come. (v14) He shall "glorify me;" for he shall receive of mine, and show it unto you."

    Now "WHO" is the Holy Spirit?"  JESUS is the Holy Spirit!  John 14:26 says "But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send "IN MY NAME" (JESUS), he will teach you all things..."  If I sent a letter "IN MY NAME" it would read from "Norine!"  Therefore, the Holy Spirit was sent "IN THE NAME OF JESUS" so JESUS is the Holy Spirit's NAME!           

    Who's been "taught" this?  Who'd rather believe "man" than "God?"  Study Saints!  It's Serious Business for Eternity (in hell) is a Loooooong Time!

    Thanks Phoenix.

    You're entering the realm of the mystical life. I cannot give you this experience, and while God Souls can and sometimes do, they generally prefer you to have your own inner experience. Like lanterns, they light the way.

    The Holy Spirit can be called The Comforter or Grace or other names, for that matter. Grace is like sunshine, you need to leave the curtains open, so it can come in. It happens in Silence and for this, receptivity is necessary. That is why so many Faiths speak of service, gratitude, prayer, solitude, meditation ...

    Gratitude, inner purity and service expands the Heart (a spiritual centre in your being), and prepares you to receive the Higher Light or Forces sent from the DIvine.

    Grace is a Power, Love and a transformer and it is necessary to create a shift from the old patterns to a new or fuller life. You must be born again ..

    When the experience comes, you will feel different, full of love not only for yourself but for others also. You may experience changes in breathing patterns, immobility of movements, shed psychic tears, laughter and a very strong Love. You may rock, cry or weep ...

    I will stop here, except to say that it can vary from one individual to another. Some may see Lights or have visions of their Spiritual Directors. Suffice it to say, that the Holy Spirit is a tool used by the Divine Intelligence, to give us hope or faith; transform our lower nature to a much higher evolution, and is always accompanied by Love for God and all. Much Peace.

    Note: Let me add that I have sat in prayer and meditation for 33 years day after day relentlessly. So the preparatory work has to be done. But Grace comes of its own choosing and time, and does not rely on self-effort. Self-effort can only take you to the point where you realise that all is Grace, all is His doing. yet the effort is necessary. Much Love.
