The Holy Spirit is Not a Person

Scriptures:

"For I ask you, where in the Scriptures of Truth is it written to give praise and worship unto the Spirit? For the Spirit is not a person, nor have I called it by name. For to YahuShua alone did I say, 'You are My Son; today I have begotten You.'[1]" ~ (The Holy Spirit, Volume 2)

"Indeed holy, holy, holy is The Lord God Almighty. One God, invisible and visible, The Father and The Son; and the Spirit called holy, because I am holy. Therefore, accept My love and receive of My gifts; for the Spirit is indeed a gift given by The Father, received through The Son[2]. Call it not a person, call it a blessing; for blessed are those who have the Spirit of God, for God dwells within them.[3]" ~ (The Holy Spirit, Volume 2)

"For the Spirit is not a person, as one separate. Rather it is a gift, a blessing received through The Messiah. For as it is written: Streams of life-giving water will pour out from His side.[4]" ~ (I Am With You Always, Volume 3)

"And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive The Holy Spirit." ~ (John 20:22 NKJV)

"And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of The Father, which He said, "You have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."" ~ (Acts 1:4-8 NKJV)

"And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of The Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called The Son of God."" ~ (Luke 1:35 NKJV)


The Holy Spirit is Not a Person - Greek Text

Translator's explanation of John 14, 15 and 16 which concern “the Spirit of the Truth” and “The Comforter”:

"“The Spirit of the Truth,” in John 14:17 comes from the Greek to pneuma tees aleetheias, and is another designation for “The Holy Spirit.” In the New Testament Greek, “The Holy Spirit” is always a neuter noun, which truly reflects the Scriptural teaching that the Holy Spirit is the power of God and not a person. The Greek nouns for “Spirit,” “the Spirit,” “Holy Spirit” and “the Holy Spirit” (KJV “Holy Ghost”) are as follows: pneuma, to pneuma, pneuma hagion, to hagion pneuma, to pneuma to hagion, and the above referenced to pneuma tees aleetheias. These nouns, in their various forms, are always and only neuter in gender. Likewise, the pronouns for to pneuma to hagion are always and only neuter in gender. Therefore, it is absolutely incorrect to translate “the Spirit,” “the Holy Spirit,” or “the Spirit of the Truth” and its pronouns in the masculine gender. Since the Greek text reveals that “the Spirit of the Truth” is in the neuter gender, the author has correctly translated its pronouns as “it,” “which” and “that one,” as a neuter entity should properly be translated. To translate these neuter nouns and their pronouns in the masculine gender clearly violates the basic rules of translation. Pneuma and its various derivations are nowhere revealed in Scripture as masculine gendered nouns!

However, in John 14:16, 26, and John 15:26, we do find a masculine gendered noun used in reference to the Holy Spirit, as a descriptive noun, ho parakleetos, which is translated in the KJV as “the Comforter.” Ho parakleetos defines a function of “the Holy Spirit,” or “the Spirit of the Truth,” as “a helper,” and “the Helper,” or as “a comforter” and “the Comforter.” While this masculine gendered descriptive noun is used to describe a vital function of the Holy Spirit, it does not designate “the Holy Spirit,” or “the Spirit of the Truth,” as a person. In I John 2:1 the masculine descriptive noun Parakleetos is used to describe a function of Jesus Christ as “an Advocate” for Christians.

The demonstrative pronoun of ho parakleetos is ekeinos, which means “that” or “that one.” The author has accordingly translated ekeinos in reference to ho parakleetos as “that one,” whereas most translations incorrectly translate ekeinos as “He.” The use of a descriptive masculine gendered noun and its pronouns does not make the Holy Spirit a “third co-equal member of a triune godhead,” a “divine being” equal with The Father and The Son. For those who know the New Testament Greek, it is evident that the theology of men, which is contrary to the inspired Greek text, has been inserted into the English translations in an attempt to give Scriptural support to the false doctrine of the Trinity."



The Holy Spirit - Not Separate, but One

Scriptures:

"Rather know and understand, that which I have poured out is spirit and truth. For The Spirit is not a person, as one separate. Rather it is a gift, a blessing received through The Messiah. For as it is written: Streams of life-giving water will pour out from His side.[5] Therefore that which you receive is of God and of Messiah, for The Father and The Son are one. Thus the Comforter is of The Son and The Father also. ~ (I Am With You Always, Volume 3)

Thus says The Lord, your Teacher: This is why I said The Spirit shall not speak of itself as one separate, but shall take of Mine and reveal it to you. For the fullness of The Father dwells in The Son[6], and that which is The Father’s is The Son’s also. My son, the Spirit and The Messiah are completely one, even as I and The Father are One. For I tell you the truth, all The Father wills is made manifest through Me." ~ (I Am With You Always, Volume 3)


Mistranslation and Misinterpretation of Scripture

Scriptures:

"First of all, understand this: No prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own; for never has a prophecy come as a result of human willing - on the contrary, people moved by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) spoke a message from God." ~ (2 Peter 1:20-21 CJB)

"Thus those who say they know Me, yet do not embrace Me as I truly am, remain in turmoil. For their trust was not founded upon The Rock, but upon the shifting sands of human expectation and many arrogant assumptions, which led them into their own private interpretation of My Word, having forgotten that no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own. For no prophecy or Scripture has ever come about by the power of man’s will. Rather those chosen by God were given ears to hear His voice, and by the power of His spirit, according to His will, they received a message from God.[7]" ~ (In One Accord, Letters from God and His Christ, to The Lord's Little Flock)

Thus says The Lord: Beware of the doctrines and traditions of men in the churches. Stumble not over the letter, nor be led astray by perverse interpretations or biased translations, by which the churches of men have marred My Word before the people. Rather study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.[8] ~ (The Holy Spirit, Volume 2)

"Churches of men, what god is this you serve?! What savior is this you testify of?! Behold, he has become unrecognizable to Me, an idol which you have made, a corrupt image which you have established upon the doctrines and traditions of men, which run contrary to Me and My Word! Yes, it is MY Word which you have polluted, mistranslated and misinterpreted, according to the vain deceits of men in authority, whose hearts are perverse, overflowing with pride, puffed up and full of vanity! Says The Lord." ~ (Churches of Men, Hear The Word of The Lord, Volume 7)

"Behold, I am the same yesterday, today, and all tomorrows to come, says The Lord. No contradiction found. Thus all error belongs to men, exploited by the wicked one for his own evil purpose. Therefore, what I have written I have written; it stands. And that which I have written through My servant, John, stands also, though it is greatly misinterpreted, the error of which is compounded by the mistranslations of men. Yet worse still is the interpretation of My Word by men of intellect and learning, who shroud their arrogance in pretense and hide their error under the guise of established doctrine, unprofitable servants who lead My people astray. For My Word is for all who truly seek Me and long to know My ways, even to walk in them. Thus My Word can only be accepted and understood by those who have received the love of the Truth, for they abide in Me and My spirit resides within them. For how can one who stands apart from Me know Me? And how can one who teaches his own way walk with Me in Mine? Men do not have understanding of the Scriptures in themselves! Rather it is a gift from God, received through the Holy Spirit, given to those who have placed all their trust in The Holy One, embracing Me as I truly am. Or have you never read this Scripture: The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of The Holy One is understanding? Therefore to those who have received is all revealed, and to those who have not received is all shut away. Shall the darkness understand the light? For only those of The Light, bathed in His glory, shall see; the rest left blinded. ~ (All Have Been Purchased... Yet Few Have Accepted, Few Are Chosen, Volume 2)

"For I am The Lord, and I do not change. And if I do not change, then I shall surely correct and discipline My own; even to the rebuking of all these churches of men, who do always speak in My name without permission, willfully forgetting that no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own. For no prophecy or Scripture has ever come about by the power of man’s will. Rather those chosen were given ears to hear My voice, and by the power of My spirit, according to My will, they shared My message.[9] ... Beloved, you see with tainted eyes, through a veil covered with purple and scarlet. Remove this veil, and wash away all this mud with which you have been splattered, and see with greater eyes. See according to righteousness, look with new eyes and restored vision...
For I tell you the truth, the translations of men are greatly erred, which leads to an even greater misinterpretation of My Word by the churches of men, who seek not the Truth as it is but long for that which is malleable, embracing only that which yields to their own perverse desires and expectations. Beloved, hear and understand, and grow wise according to the wisdom I have given you, and no more listen to the churches of men. Be wary of their scholars, and stop your ears from hearing the arrogant speeches of all these men in authority; be wary and vigilant. For they hold tightly to singleness of doctrine, teaching always that which is built upon the corrupt knowledge and understanding of men, men who refuse to let go of that which was passed down to them by their forefathers, by which they also remain blind - doctrines and traditions I hate! They cease not from perverting My Word and polluting My name before many witnesses..." ~ (Mistranslation and Misinterpretation Leading to Great Obscurity among Many Faces, Volume 4)

You Shall Not Add to nor Take Away

Scriptures:

"Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar." ~ (Proverbs 30:6 NKJV)

"You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you." ~ (Deuteronomy 4:2 NKJV)

"Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it." ~ (Deuteronomy 12:32 NKJV)

"For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;" ~ (Revelation 22:18 NKJV)

"And be very careful that you do not deny My Word, nor add to, nor take away from it. For I am The Lord, and I do not change ... Therefore, do not add to My words, lest I rebuke you and you be found a liar, as it is written.[10] Seek The Lord in all humility, apart from the churches of men; lay down your pride, and your eyes will be opened. For only I may add to My Word, yea, an unveiling of the Word’s majesty, both subtle and brilliant, that you may have greater understanding; I alone shall take what man has made crooked, and set it straight once again ... Therefore, again I say to you, even to all who call of themselves Christian: Stop adding to and taking away from My Word[11], to uphold your own perverse way! Says The Lord." ~ (Mistranslation and Misinterpretation Leading to Great Obscurity among Many Faces, Volume 4)

"Thus says The Lord: Churches of men, you do always twist the Scriptures! You cease not from adding to and taking away from the Word of God, as you continue to stand firm upon your own cracked foundations which your forefathers laid! - Foundation upon foundation throughout your generations, built ever higher according to the pride and vanity of men, an arrogance which has no equal!
How long shall you contend with Me? How long shall you pervert the Truth?" ~ (I Will Take My People OUT OF, Volume 2)

"Therefore, thus says The Lord: The churches of men are perverse, their ways corrupt, a wholly ignorant and vain people, multitudes of deceived children, a people who were to prepare My way before Me! Yet they have chosen another way, twisting and segregating the Scriptures, both adding to and taking away, that they may continue to uphold their own corrupt doctrines and filthy traditions, which I hate! Therefore, woe to those who dwell in the churches of men! Woe to all who walk in their ways!" ~ (I Shall Remove My Hand and My Spirit Shall Be Withdrawn... And That Purposed from the Beginning Shall Be Done, It Shall Be Accomplished Swiftly, Volume 7)

"Thus says The Lord: You have all gone out of the way, none know where they are going! All have gone astray, all remain lost and utterly void of understanding! Sons of men, you know not the will of God, nor have you kissed The Son, neither do you listen to the sound of His voice; your every foundation lain by the vain understanding of men! Behold, all your knowledge is corrupt and shall come to nothing in the Day; indeed, all you have wrought shall burn![12] For you have not known Me and refuse to accept Me as I truly am, having segregated The Scriptures, both adding to and taking away, to uphold your own perverse way! Thus you remain in your ignorance, listening only to the sound of your own voices! - LIES! A multitude of subtle deceptions, knowledge and commandments brought forth by MEN!" ~ (To the Church Who Bears the Name, Jehovah, Who Neither Know My Church Nor Remain in My Body, Volume 3)

"Yet you forbear, resting always upon beds of false doctrine, the doctrines of men! Therefore you shall not be gathered, for I do not see of Myself in you.
And though you speak My words instant in and out of season, you open your mouths in vain. For you do always add to and take away from My words, in an effort to uphold your own way. Know you not, that which is of God has salt in itself and in no wise needs seasoning? Therefore get wisdom, get understanding, and repent!..." ~ (To All Those Who Speak Against the Word of The Lord Given to Timothy, Volume 7)

Conclusion: Thus Says The Lord

4/19/05 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

These questions were asked of The Lord: Lord, should we worship the Holy Spirit? Is the Holy Spirit a person?

Thus says The Lord: Beware of the doctrines and traditions of men in the churches. Stumble not over the letter, nor be led astray by perverse interpretations or biased translations, by which the churches of men have marred My Word before the people. Rather study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.[13]
For I ask you, where in the Scriptures of Truth is it written to give praise and worship unto the Spirit? For the Spirit is not a person, nor have I called it by name. For to YahuShua alone did I say, “You are My Son; today I have begotten You.[14] Therefore worship God, offering up praises in the name of The Son, and give thanks. For those who believe in The Son, and also seek to obey Him, receive of My spirit. For it is My hand upon you, guiding you in the way in which you should walk, My voice speaking softly from within, reminding you of that which I have taught you,[15] restoring you to righteousness and life. Yet the power of God moving upon the face of the earth is My spirit also, My will made manifest in the world and among men.
Therefore, I ask you, how can one pray to that which he prays through? Shall one pray to the hand of God? Rather pray to your Father in Heaven, in The Son’s name, and through the Spirit we shall be one. For all My servants move, speak and hear Me through My spirit, and only through The Son shall My children come to know Me as I truly am... And oh how blessed are those who know Him, for they love Him and obey His voice, having truly received of Him, even of His spirit, The Spirit of God.


Indeed holy, holy, holy is The Lord God Almighty...

One God, invisible and visible, The Father and The Son;
And The Spirit called holy, because I am holy...

Therefore, accept My love and receive of My gifts;
For The Spirit is indeed a gift given by The Father,
Received through The Son…[16]

Call it not a person, call it a blessing;
For blessed are those who have the Spirit of God,
For God dwells within them.[17]

1/5/07 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
(Regarding the Holy Spirit[18])

Question asked by Timothy: Lord, can You help me better understand John 16:13-15?

Thus says The Lord to His servant: Timothy, think not in earthly terms, nor consider by human means. Rather know and understand, that which I have poured out is spirit and truth. For the Spirit is not a person, as one separate. Rather it is a gift, a blessing received through The Messiah. For as it is written: Streams of life-giving water will pour out from His side.[19] Therefore that which you receive is of God and of Messiah, for The Father and The Son are one. Thus the Comforter is of The Son and The Father also.

Thus says The Lord, your Teacher: This is why I said, the Spirit shall not speak of itself as one separate, but shall take of Mine and reveal it to you. For the fullness of The Father dwells in The Son[20], and that which is The Father’s is The Son’s also. My son, the Spirit and The Messiah are completely one, even as I and The Father are One. For I tell you the truth, all The Father wills is made manifest through Me. Thus the Spirit is given so you may really know Me, and receive strength to walk in My ways. For I am with you always, even to the end of this age.[21]


And behold, there is a day coming
Quickly when you shall be changed,
And no longer shall I dwell only in you,
But you shall dwell also in Me...

Then shall you understand
The fullness of who I am...

For as it is written:
Now you see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face;
Now you know in part, but then you shall
Know just as you are also known.[22]
