Who or what is the Holy Spirit?
In Hebrew the word there is -Ruah
Ruah-Spirit (Gen 1:2; NU 16:22;Ecc 1:14,17)
Ruah-wind (Gen 8:1; Isa 7:2; 41:16; jer 2:24)
Ruah-breath (Job 9:18; Jer 14:6)But different from the word in Gen 2:7 interesting probably because it's not active help me on this.
Ruah- air (Job 41:6)
Ruah- also used in GOD'S activity (Job 26:13; ps 33:6)
Ruah-intervention (Ex 15:8)
Ruah- judgement( Job 4:9; 15:30; PS 18:15; iSA 40:7
Ruah- it was used to empower the Messiah( Isa 11:2; 42:1; 61:1
Ruah- it was also used frequently to denote the Spirit of GOD(Gen 1:2; Nu 11:17,25; 1Ki 18:12; 2Ki 2:16; Ne 9:20; Job 33:4; and there are many more.
This word is very interesting this word even empowered people in the old testament like prophets craftsman interpreters of dreams military leaders
In the newtestament the word is Pneuma; from the word pneo but they have different meanings
Pneuma- IS the breath of life this word is used in some very Plain yet mysterious activities in the Newtestament these pronouns are very personal like in
Matt 3:16,17 As soon asJesus was baptized, he went up out of the water.at that moment heaven was opened and he(John) saw the Spirit(Pneuma) of GOD descending like a dove and lighting on him.And a voice from heaven said,this is my Son, whom I love, with him I am well pleased.
Matt 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy(Hagios religious awe Holy) Spirit(Pneuma), and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
John 14:16,17 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever the Spirit(Pneuma) of truth. The world cannot accept him,v because it neither see's him nor knows him. but you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
John 15:26 When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father,the Spirit(Pneuma)of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.
John 16:13,14 But when he the Spirit of truth, comes he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears,and he will tell you what is yet to come.He will bring glory to meby taking from what is mine and making it known to you.
Acts 13:2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting the Holy(hagios)Spirit(Pneuma) said, Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to witch I have called them.(I notice here the acts are self consciousness)
Like in Gen 6:3 My Spirit shall not always strive with man.
There are several others that baffle me tell me what you think but only by SOLA SCRIPTURA.
