    The words “spirit and “holy spirit” are used to speak of the power, influence and operating energy of the person who the Scriptures call “The Holy Spirit.” However, many Scriptures definitely establish the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.

    1) Personal pronouns are repeatedly applied to the Holy Spirit

    We will close this study on the Trinity with a few comments on John 17v3, where Christ calls the Father “the only true God”, this will also help to explain such Scriptures as Gal 3v20, Eph 4v6, 1Tim 1v17, 2v5. In John 13v3, Jesus is not denying His deity, for many Scriptures clearly state that Christ is God, the context of John 17v3 shows why the Lord prayed in this way.

    There exist three distinct self-conscious Persons (or self-aware subjects cognizant of their own existence) the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. All three distinct Persons share the nature of the one God, being coequal, co-eternal and co-existent.

    There is something which is called 'The mystery of God', which is only ended when the Lord returns at the seventh trumpet. Rev 10v7, Eph 3v9,10, 3v9-11, Rom 16v25,26. There is also a reference to 'the mystery of iniquity' which was already working in Paul's day, but was hindered from completion by God until He was ready to allow it. The word 'mystery' does not mean mysterious, but simply a secret hidden from the outsider but revealed to the initiated, e.g. the secret teaching of Freemasons, which ...

    Man is tripartite; body, soul and spirit. His body comes from his parents, his spirit comes from God, and his soul, i.e., himself, is the result of this union of body and spirit, a new individual without experience of any kind, but good because made by God Himself. Man is a soul, he possesses a spirit and a body, the former whereby he can contact the spirit world, and the latter with which to enter and appreciate the material world. The soul, if it loses its body, is dead to this world; if it loses ...
