GOD'S MANIFESTATIONS: The Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ

Updated on March 20, 2017

THE HOLY SPIRIT: GOD'S POWER FORCE


The Bible describes the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of the One True God in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament as the Spirit of Jesus Christ. There is no distinction between the two, for the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Jesus are synonymous or the same Spirit. God uses the Holy Spirit to accomplish His great feats of creation, gives power to people to rule, power of instruction and warning.

Nowhere in the Bible is the term "Spirit of God" or the "Spirit of Jesus Christ" called or classified as a "person" as claimed by the Trinitarians. God is a Spirit and His Spirit is a spirit. There is only one God in the Old Testament and Jesus is God in the flesh in the New Testament (John 1:1,14). God, The Spirit of God and Jesus Christ are the One and Only True God.


THE HOLY SPIRIT AS GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT


In the first two quotes, God refers to the Holy Spirit in the first person pronoun. The rest of the quotes are from Jesus, Paul and Peter quoting the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of God.

1. The Lord God said, "And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them" (Ezekiel 36:27).

2. "And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord" (Ezekial 37:14).

3. Jesus described the Holy Spirit in John 4:24: "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

4. Paul in I Corinthians 12:6 quotes: "And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all."

5. Peter said in Acts 5:3.4: "Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost ... thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God."


THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT


A. THE HOLY SPIRIT CREATES

The Spirit of God created many wonderful things, the earth and the heavens and gave life to human beings.

In the beginning of creation, the "Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters" (Genesis 1:2).

"Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created:" (Psalm 104:30).

"By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens" (Job 26:13).

"The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life" (Job 33:4).



B. THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES POWER TO PEOPLE

God gave power to different people like Joseph, Joshua, Bezalel, Samson and Daniel the ability to rule, leadership, knowledge, craftsmanship, strength and interpretation of dreams.

God's Spirit gave Joseph the ability to rule (Genesis 41:38-41).

Joshua was given leadership ability to lead the Israelites into the land of Canaan (Num 27:18-20; Deu 34:9).


God enabled seventy elders to rule over Israel (Num 11:16-17).

He gave knowledge and craftmanship to Bezalel and others (Ex 31:2-6; 35:30-31).

God gave Samson tremendous strength (Jud 14:6,19; 15:14; 16:28-30).

Daniel was given the ability to interpret the dreams of Nebuchadnezer (Dan 4:8-9,18; 5:14; cf 1:17-20).


C. THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES INSTRUCTION

The Holy Spirit gives Warning and Prophecy from the Prophets (Nehemiah 9:30; Zechariah 7:12; Hebrews 1:1; 2 Peter 1:21).

The Spirit of the Lord made David prophesy (1 Samuel 16:13; 2 Samuel 23:2).

God's spirit moved Zecharish to warn king Joash (2 Chronicles 24:20-22),.. Micaiah predicted that king Ahab would die in the battlefield (1 Kings 22: 13-25).

God's spirit brought Ezekiel to speak about the captivity in Chaldea (Ezekiel 11:22-25).

The Spirit of the Lord made Micah declare the transgression of Israel (Micah 3:8).


GOD'S OTHER MANIFESTATION: JESUS CHRIST


GOD IN HUMAN FORM

Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh in John 1:1, 14.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (v. 14)And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth,..."

It is clearly seen in Isaiah 9:6 that Jesus is the Son and called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. The Son and Father are blended into one.


JESUS is GOD of the Old Testament

1. God is the Creator (Gen 1:1; Neh 9:5; Isa 42:5). Jesus is the Creator (Jn 1:1-3; Col 1:16; Heb 1:10).

2. God is the Savior (Isa 43:11; Hos 13:4). Jesus is the Savior (Lk 2:11; Acts 4:12; Jude 24).

3. God is King (Ps 10:16; 96:10). Jesus is King (Rev 11:15).

4. God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords (Deu 10:17; Dan 2:47). Jesus is the Lord of lords (Rev 17:14; 19:16).

5. God is the Lord of life (Deu 32:39; Jer 38:16). Jesus is the Lord of life (Jn 1:4; 11:25; 14:6).

6. God is the first and the last (Isa 44:6; 48:12). Jesus is the first and the last (Rev 1:17; 22:13).


THE SPIRIT of JESUS in the NEW TESTAMENT


God gives the Spirit of God into the hearts of man and leads, guides and helps them to obey the commandments of God.

1. "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father" (Gal. 4:6).

2. "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Co 3:17).

3. In the incident of the Ethiopian eunuch and Philip (Acts 8:26-29), the Spirit said unto Philip, "Go near and join thyself to this chariot" (v.29) ... "And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the the Lord caught away Philip" (v.39).

4. The disciples were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia (Acts 16:6).

5. "So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God: But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" (Rom 8:8,9).

The Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit (Ghost) and the Spirit of Jesus Christ are the same, for the Holy Spirit is God and is also Jesus Christ, our Saviour.


WIKIPEDIA


The Trinity is a Christian doctrine, stating that God exists as three persons, or in the Greek hypostases, but is one being.[1][2] The persons are understood to exist as God the Father, God the Son (incarnate as Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. Since beginning of the third century[3] the doctrine of the Trinity has been stated as "that the one God exists in three Persons and one substance, Father, Son and Holy Spirit".[4]Trinitarianism, belief in the Trinity, is a mark of Oriental and Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism and all the mainstream traditions arising from the Protestant Reformation, such as Anglicanism, Lutheranism and Presbyterianism; and the Trinity has been described as "the central dogma of Christian theology".[4]

Opposing nontrinitarian positions held by some groups include Binitarianism (two /persons/aspects), Unitarianism onedeity/person/aspect), the Oness belief held by certain Pentecostal groups, Modalism, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' view of the Godhead as three separate beings are one in purpose rather than essence.


IS "TRINITY" BIBLICALLY CORRECT? NO


No such word as "Trinity" exists in the whole Bible, but is a word coined in the third century by theologians. The Old Testament insists there is only one God and no one else. The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-6) tells us in the first three commandments, "I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the house of bondage. (3) Thou shalt have no other gods before me."

How can Christians who believe in the One True God classify "God" as a person, when throughout the Bible, He is said to be "Spirit"? How can the Spirit of God be named as a "Person" when He is called the "Spirit of the Lord?" How can man bring low the status of God to that of MAN? Man is not eternal. Man has earthly feelings and thoughts. God is righteous, self-existent and does not consult with other men for decisions. God is a Spirit, the Holy Spirit is "His Power Force" and Jesus Christ is GOD's HUMAN FORM." There is only ONE GOD!


ONE TRUE GOD


God, the Holy Spirit (power force), and Jesus Christ (human form) are the One true God, and not three persons in One as claimed by the Trinitarians.

"I and my Father are one" (John 10:30).

"There is none other God but one" (1 Corinthians 8:4).

"Unto thee it was shewed, that the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him" (Deu 4:35; 6:4;).

"Neither is there any God beside thee" (2 Sam 7:22)

"Thou art God alone" (Ps 86:10).

"Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord" (Mark 12:29).

"there is none other God but one" (1 Cor 8:4).

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (1 Tim 2:5).

"FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD IN HEAVEN, THE FATHER, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE." (1 John 5:7).

AMEN


The Holy Spirit - The Spirit Of God - The Spirit Of Jesus.

      I love it when I see and feel for myself the power of my lord working in me and outside of me in my life in the lives of others, who give themselves to our father and son and holy spirit who are one, and abides in us !

      Well, if "fruit of the wine is grape juice," it reinforces Rm 14:21! According to Jn 15:1 , He's speaking of Himself! I hope you don't think when He said in John 6:35 that "He was the bread of life" that you don't think He's a slice of bread? For communion, He told you what was "in the cup" (Lk 22:20) "This cup is the new testament IN MY BLOOD which is SHED for you." What was in His blood? (Jn 19:34) WATER !

      Why do everyone look at Scripture "literally?" (Jn 4:24). So many, so o so many, misinterpreting Scripture by not "looking" or "studying" in the Spirit!

      Matthew 26:29

      "... not drink of the fruit of the wine". Fruit of the wine is grape juice, and wine is "fermented" grape juice.

      Einron: Be factious if you like, but consider Romans 14:21 "It is better not to eat meat or drink "wine" or to do anything that causes your brother to stumble." Why then, would Jesus tell anyone to take "wine" or "grape juice" for the communion if He wrote this Scripture? He would contradict Himself!

      Acts 17:11 Whether we read the bible "literally" or "in the Spirit" is what "really matters." "Fruit of the vine, would be grape juice or even wine when reading "literally!" John 4:23-24

      Whether we are in agreement or not is immaterial, but whether we are in agreement with the Bible matters!

      Ein: Holy Spirit is Spirit of Jesus (Jn 14:26 "in my NAME") our Lord God (Jn 20:28), for "I AM" is One (SPIRIT)! When you say God AND Jesus - implies Two! You are right in saying "...and is never described as a "man."

      I thank God the "mystery" of Jesus is God has been revealed to you! I am also guility of sometimes remaining in the lingo of "old times!" God is WHAT He is, but Jesus is WHO He is! I call the "understanding" of Jesus is God: THE GREATEST ALLEGORY IN SCRIPTURE! (Marriage is the second!)

      Scripture says that we "grow" in Christ (II Cor 3:18) yet last month I asked your "hope" (I Peter 3:15) regarding baptism and the communion and you "wished" not to reply. Although you gave a response regarding baptism, you did not give Scriptures "proving" (II Tim 3:16) why you were baptized in Jesus' Name. Will you take a moment?

      Unless we use Scripture (II Timothy 3:16) "...for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness," we will never become (v17) "...perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."

      I'm only trying to "grow" in His Word and rarely find others with "understanding" of the "mystery" in Jesus and when I do, if my understanding does not agree with theirs, they "do not wish to discuss" which is not according to His Word (I Peter 3:15).

      Will you, therefore, take a moment and do as the Bereans did in Acts 17:11 to see if we are in agreement regarding baptism and the communion?

      Baptism: Jer 31:33; Heb 8:10; 10:16! Under the New Covenant, Jesus "Promised" that He would "put His laws into our hearts, and write them in our minds." How? Jn 14:26 & 16:13. He "Promised" a Comforter (Holy Spirit) which would accomplish that. Acts 2:2 the Holy Spirit ("Promise") came and began "putting laws in the Apostles' hearts & minds." Afterwards, they only baptized in Jesus' name as we should do today (Acts 2:42) under the New Covenant!

      The Communion: You gave Scripture concerning the communion (Mark 14:25; Luke 22:18) wherein Jesus said "...I will not drink no more of the fruit of the vine..." to justify taking "grape juice" for the communion. However. John 15:1 & 5 says " I AM the vine..." which is a metaphor telling us that "without Him we can do nothing" (v5).

      Did you notice the preceeding verse in Mark 14? Verse 24 said "...This is my blood of the "new testament," which is SHED for many." You also gave Luke 22:18 which says the same thing "...I will not drink of the fruit of the vine..." Did you notice verse 20 of the same chapter? It said "...This cup is the "new testament" IN MY BLOOD, which is SHED for you."

      The reason I place emphasis on "in my blood' and "shed," is because Jesus said in both Mark and Luke that the "new testament"(New Covenant) was "in his blood" which was "shed" for many." What was "in his blood" and "shed?" WATER! Scripture says in John 19:34 "But one of the soldiers, with a spear, pierced his side, and immediately came there out blood and "water." Water was "in his blood!" That's what is "in the cup!"

      There are Scriptures after Scriptures that say "water" is life, "water" is cleansing, "water" is Jesus! Therefore, "Water" should be taken for the communion. Do you agree?

      Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and Jesus, and is never described as a "man". The Holy Spirit of God is the manifestation of God and God uses the power to accomplish His will.

      Baptized in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins before going

      under the water.

      Baptism of regeneration - Titus 3:5

      Matthew 26:29

      Jesus said, "But I said unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the wine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my father's kingdom.

      Mark 14:25; Luke 22:18

      Grape wine is fermented and does not represent the innocent blood of Jesus. In the OT, it is not appropriate to use wine (Lev. 10:8,9; Eze.44:21).

      Thank you Jesus for His Revelation to you! Since revelation of scripture was given me, I have been trying to tell denominations this for months! I must say what Paul said, "Am I, therefore, become your enemy, because I tell you truth?" However, as he said in Gal 1:12, "For I neither receive it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." So "Who would I rather please, man or God?" Thank God others are receiving His revelation as well! Thank you Jesus! Let's continue to spread the "Good News!"

      I think god is either energy or water. Just a thought i have been having lately, when we are baptized with water, the holy spirit is ascended upon us, god is in us and all around us, so is water. We are manifestations of god also i believe. Though i can never really know, i will keep learning. :) ♥

      I had an angel come to me in the flesh and told me that the father, Son, and Holy Spirit is Jesus Christ, but He manifests into three parts. But the whole part is God who is Jesus Christ. There isnt three people who are all God. Jesus is One being who chose to manifest Himself in three parts. And each part bears the name Jesus Christ. Cheers! And God Bless

      Isaiah 43:10-11

      10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

      11 I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.

      Isaiah 45:21

      King James Version (KJV)

      21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

      wow , I just found this. I did an article a number of years ago on this and was crucified by the trinitarians. Great job of explaining scripture truth that was polluted by the catholic church and accepted by the main line churches of men.

      using the correct word "manifestations" set them on fire and they used their favorite word that is used for anyone not accepting their, teaching. Heretic. thanks for a great article

      Thanks for your comments. The purpose of the article is to show that there is only One God and the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ are His manifestations.

      God and the Holy Spirits are described as Persons in "Trinity" which is wrong for God and the Holy Spirit are spirits and not persons. They have no form, do not eat and sleep like human beings.

      Trinity is not in the bible, but coined by the Catholic Church.

      The Bible is actually clear about the distinctions between the father,son and holy spirit.The distinctions must be seen as one that is eternal and not just took place for a purpose.The father is God,The Son is God and the holy spirit is God Himself but let us not make the mistake that we are splitting God into three parts.We dont need to be theologians to understand who God is.We must accept him as the Bible reveals him.We should also understand that whether we are trinitarians or oneness which are the two strongest sides that seems to be based on biblical teachings and do make the stongest view for one to hold,we could all be wrong or all be right depending on how we understand the terms.I dont even know whether i am trinitarian or oneness but am still being used by the same lord.

      Below is what i believe about God.

      The best picture of the Trinity is like the picture of the Sun. We have the Sun which can represent the Father God, the light which represents Jesus Christ and the heat (radiation) which represents the Holy Spirit. The Father God represents the Source of the Godhead, the

      Lord Jesus Christ represents the form and visibility of the Godhead and the Holy Spirit represent the energy emanations from the Godhead. Thus God is actually one God-person having three God-attributes: the Father as the source attribute of God outside of space, time and dimension, the Lord Jesus Christ as the “shape-form” attribute of God revealed to all creation, the Holy Spirit as the energy-emanation attribute of God throughout all creation.

      (Remembering that one God-person can be omnipresent simultaneously in various forms emanating through all space e and time – which to humans look like multi-persons but is actually only one God-person)..

      einron... ello.. May the Peace of our God the creator and His Son Lord Jesus Christ and their Sweet Holy Spirit be with all of us .. Genesis tells us that the Spirit of God was hovering on the waters before creating everything. They were there in the beginning & before the creation. God also said Let us make man .. so here again its them. After creating His creation God felt the pain as how His creation was getting into the habit of sin and drifting away from Him (Maker) . He wanted to show us His Love, Mercy & Grace - What a compassionate and Loving our Father God is. A part of Him came into being here on earth as His Son our Savior to lead us back to Him .. How Awesome are His Works .. Its a Relationship between The Father, The Son and Their Sweet Holy Spirit and us. How can we put this Awesome Sacrificial Love of His ..? Let us bow down before our Maker and our God who is our sustainer of our Lives. God Bless you child of God.

      Hello enrion, I have a comment about God(Father,Son,Holy Spirit). It is wise not to call him a person because in not made of flesh but of a Spirit form. Jesus talks alot about the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. He talks how to pray to God the Father and to ask the Father for the Holy Spirit. On JESUS baptism he The Father spoke and the Holy Spirit descended upon him. Is God talking to him self descending upon himself? On Mattew Jesus gives an order to go to the world and baptized in the name of the Father,Son,and the Holy Spirit. It seems that people have taken out the this verse out of context. Why disciples baptized without the three Spirits(Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit). And yes its true they are not persons.The devil trys to mimic God in everything he does. My question is "Does God talks to himself? I believe that the God the Father, Son,and Holy Spirit concord. Last thing,Stevan the diciple. When he was stone and before he died, he said that he saw the heavens open up that Jesus was standing next to the throne of God.

      Jesus called his Father the only true God. Many times Jesus said that his Father was his God. The Apostles said Jesus had a God. If Jesus was God how could he have a God? God said that he was not a man and in Romans 1 Paul says that God is not a man. Could Jesus have been created by God for the reason of being our messiah. Death came from the man Adam but the resurrection from the man Jesus. To be human Jesus had to have a human spirit but he also had the Holy Spirit in full measure and could this have been the power that God and Jesus were united in? Are there two Gods? Is there only one God? This issue needs far more study and prayer to arrive at the truth.

      God is a Spirit who is invisible and has no form. Throughout the Old Testament, He was invisible. To get better acquainted with man, God manifested Himself as Jesus on earth (John 1:1, 14)

      And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

      Jesus was God in the flesh interacting with man on earth.

      If the catholic church is really trying to lead people to God then why do they continually ignore this passage in Deuteronomy?:"15Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:

      16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

      17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

      18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

      19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

      20 But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day. "????

      I read this article and wanted to make a comment. I agree there is ONE God. I believe Jesus is God and I believe the Holy Spirit is God and I believe the Father whom Jesus speaks to, is God. You will not find the word Trinity in the bible because this was not an existing word to explain the belief in the Doctrine of God as three persons in one at that time. I see the bible does do a great job at pointing out the deity of the Father, Son, and Spirit as you have shown. However there is way too much you are over looking to claim that Trinitarian belief is wrong. I believe is it wrong to think God is not so complex-ed. We are the creation and not the Creator. There is much more to God then we can fathom. Such as there is a lot of unique plurality of God hinted at in the old testament as well. I think we would be condensing God into OUR image as Christians to say that God cannot exist as three persons in one God. Basically I do not believe there are different 'manifestations' of God as He is transforming into different beings with different roles as time progresses. As you posted.: "FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD IN HEAVEN, THE FATHER, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE." (1 John 5:7). If your theory was correct I believe it would have said, "There is one who bears record in heaven, the father, as is the Son, who is the Holy Ghost." Peace..

      Good day everyone,

      Read through the comments and one thing came emmediately to my mind - Don't let the enemy rob you of the SIMPLICITY that is in Christ Jesus (1Cor11v3). It is easy to make the Word of God a "court case" where we need evidence of everything - it can really become complex and not simple! Remember we only "know in part" and thus, we don't need to know in full ...yet! (1 Cor 13v9)

      The NT also states that the "Letter of the Word kills" (2Cor3v6). We can also easily get involved in the "letter of the Word" (like the pharisees) ... and miss the "inspired Word of God". Yes, the Bible states that we must "meditate the Word" - we can do it in its simplicity.

      Understanding the simplicity of the sermon on the mount and the invitations through the NT to die in ones fleshly nature and to find a life in the Spirit, opens up a world where we can experience the kingdom of heaven (NOW!!!) full of spiritual blessings!! a real new life in its fulness.

      (Jer33v3, Mat7v7, Matt16v19, John10v9, Col3v2, Rev21v6, John1v51, Rom8v14). Johan@thecross.co.za

      You cannot really say that God is inconsistent throughout the Bible. What God said is always consistent. It is only our understanding is faulty.

      Take a guy, for example, He is first a man, a lawyer and a father. What he says may be from the point of a man, a lawyer's point of view and last of all, as a father. If he speaks as a lawyer, isnt he the same man?

God was not consistent throughout the Bible in referring to Himself as "Us" when He spoke. There's more to this, and it's in my hub "GOD: Let Us Make Man In Our Image?" Blessings :-)

      Hi there yes God has purposed us from before the foundation of the world that we are in him, but to achieve that God would carry out his Grace and make it possible without human intervention or require human participation.

      Jesus is God, he is God as man, the Holy Spirit is God as a Spirit.

      For God to live in man he had to be Spirit, or he could not as a human come and live in a person. All this is God manifesting himself to fulfill the role and keep his promise.

      Father Word (Son) and Holy Spirit were there in the beginning.

      Ge:1:26: And God said, Let us make man in our image (tselem), after our likeness(d?muwth): and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

      "Our Image" = tselem (Hebrew)....image, likeness (of resemblance)

      "Our likeness" = d?muwth (Hebrew)..... likeness, similitude

      Take note of the words "Us" and "Our" who is "us" and who is "our"

      We become children of God when we are 'born again' (infants in Christ). Your definition of "right hand" would indicate Jesus was given authority to act on behalf of another person, in which we know God is not a 'person'. If you do a study on "right hand" in the Bible, it is clear this represents the power and authority of the Spirit, Who is God, Who is Jesus. Amen :-)

      I hope you don't mind, but I linked your hub to my latest...awesome!!

      I did want to say something about the "right hand of God" passages, in that this is symbolic of the power of God, which is also the characteristic of the Spirit of God (Acts 1:8). It's not to be taken literally, as though Jesus Christ is at the right 'side' of God. It took me awhile to not only let the Lord reveal all of this to me, but He went beyond...

      He's shown me so much more about 'elohim' and the term HOO needs to understand ~ "Let Us make man in Our image"...I liked what you said about "Us" and royalty, for we are a 'royal priesthood, a holy nation'; amen! Truly the Word was not with (par - beside) God, but was TO (pros) God (Elohim), as elohim existed before man was created. The short definition of the word "Elohim" is angels, yet includes God's magistrates, too. And, truly, the 'sons of the Most High' (children of God by faith) are also 'elohim'!! The LORD (Yehovah) is the LORD God (the LORD of elohim) who created man in His image!! While man thinks the 'image of God' is literal, he needs to understand the Hebrew and Greek words for 'image' also.

      So much, so much, so much God wants to show us! This was really difficult to submit to His knowledge, for it truly is above our carnal understanding and can ONLY come from the Holy Spirit! It about 'blew' my mind and I've done my best to write about it all in several hubs. God bless!!!
