That is a real easy question to answer...even for you.
Alani, how are you doing today?
at that prehistoric time of the first verse of John 1, the Word was not (yet) the Son of God.
He divested himself of His glory as a spirit divinity to be begotten as a human person.
He was made God’s Son, through being begotten or sired by God and born of the virgin Mary
Romans 1:4 (KJV)
And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness,
by the resurrection from the dead:
11But if [the Spirit of him] that raised up [Jesus] from the dead dwell in you,
[he]that raised up [Christ] from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies
by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Jesus was the first born Son of God.
Is this true?
the spirit in man
- this is not Gods holy spirit it's mans, [all humans- flesh and blood]
1 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth
the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
- science calls it youre concience, they can't see, or feel, or touch it, calling it human nature.
8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.
- this it what imparts thought, it seperates mans brain and thoughts from animals instints,
but science cant understand it.
7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
this spirit in man, that makes us 100 times more superiour to animals,
if combined with Gods Holy spirit makes man complete person with God.
In Greek, as in English, the word spirit is neuter—neither masculine nor feminine in gender.
Pneuma is the Greek word meaning “spirit.” It is always grammatically neuter, properly
represented by the English pronoun “it” (John 1:32; Romans 8:16).
The Greek parakletos (comforter) is masculine in gender, so translators used the personal
pronouns he and him for the Greek masculine pronouns. In many languages, a word’s gender
has nothing to do with whether the thing itself is literally male or female. For example,
the Spanish word mesa (table) is feminine. Gender in language is a mere grammatical tool.
Does our spirit have a gender? I can't think of anything in the bible that addresses that question...so I don't know.
I think what needs to be considered here is that we are first ''children who need to learn before we can be ''adults to receive the HS. God always does things 'in order !
