In Part 1 we learned that man can be considered a three-in-one being, made in the likeness of Elohim. In Part 2 we discussed the tri-unity of God, starting with God the Father and Jesus the Son as two members of the Elohim family. Now, in our final part we will discuss the third member of the Godhead, and how important our relationship with the Father is in unity with the Holy Spirit.
"...And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters."(Genesis 1:2) The Spirit of Elohim is the Holy Spirit (see marginal references in Job 26:13; Job 33:4;Psalm 51:11,12)
The unity of God can be expressed as three-in-one: God the Father, the Word (Yahshua) and the Holy Spirit from the very beginning.
Luke3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice (voice of YAHWEH) came
from heaven, which said, “Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased”. Here is one of the few times in scripture where you read that Yahshua, Holy Spirit and God the Father are mentioned together, three-in-one, as in Elohim.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straight way out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
The Holy Spirit is a Spirit being, not a dove, operating on the earth and in you, if you have accepted Yahshua as your Master and have allowed the Spirit of God to dwell in you. It is a conscious choice that you have to make. God does not force you to receive Him. He respects your freedom of choice because he gave it to you.
But beware, that with free choice also comes responsibility for the consequences of sin in your life. Your choice of lifestyle can bring results that may not be favorable to you. So choose wisely!
The Holy Spirit as Comforter from YAHWEH ELOHIM...
God the Holy Spirit is the Comforter (Acts 9:31); Teacher of the wisdom, understanding and knowledge of God (Isaiah 11:2); and Sanctifier of His people (Ezekiel 37:27).
Let’s address one more issue. How can it possibly be that God is more than one when He clearly says in Deuteronomy 6:4…The LORD our God is one LORD?
For this we will have to look in the Hebrew language to define what this means. This scripture is referring to the Hebrew word,(אחד 'echâd); proper term for united, that is, one; or some, together. God, the fullness of the Godhead or God family are all one, working together as one in perfect unity and harmony. One Family unit.
God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all one, three-In-one. That’s how the Godhead is structured.
It is your choice to pursue God and get to know Elohim in His many facets and enjoy the union you have with Him. If you do not know God (Elohim) as Three-In-One or as some say, “Trinity” now is the time to pray to Him and ask for His Holy Spirit Who will teach you all things about Yahweh. Then obey His Word, and the understanding will come.
Holy Spirit is a Spirit being Who has infinite layers of Himself. A layer of His being is received by every beliver at the moment of being born again. Along with His Spirit you also receive POWER!
(Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power; after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you...)
The Word also says Every believer's body is the temple of the Holy Spirit in which He dwells! How else can believers all over the world have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit?
(I cor. 6:19 What? Know you not the your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and ye are not your own?)
This phenomenon would not be possible if the Holy Spirit was not an infinitely layered being!
God the Father also has infinite layers of himself. God is omnipresent, everywhere at once. His layers cover the earth and universe and all of the heavenly hosts were created by Him.
God knows all things concerning us, His creation. He knows even the number of hairs on the heads of 7 billion+ people! Best of all, we each, individually, can have an intimate relationship with Him because He has freely given of His Holy Spirit and Yahshua is able to live inside of us, He dwells in our hearts and Holy Spirit joins with our spirit making us sons and daughters of Elohim! How awesome is the God we serve!
