THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PERSONS WITHIN AND WITHOUT THE SDA CHURCH WHO ARE STILL CONFUSED AS TO WHETHER THE HOLY SPIRIT IS:
A PART OF THE GODHEAD
A PERSON OR A FORCE
PLEASE EXPLAIN SO THAT WE CAN HELP OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND.
REDVA, please read this link it works. This is accurate information not known by most Christians about the holy spirit. I know what I am talking about, I have 43 years of experience and study in the holy spirit field. Actually everyone should read and consider this information in the link.
God bless you,
Your posts speak for them self they are the proof.
yes I can choose any post then compare it to the bible and the glaring difference will be seen.
There is a point beyond speaking in your native language or speaking in tongues where you worship God in spirit and in truth. No words words are spoken and you feel and know the purity of your spirit worshiping God.
God does not like those who lift themselves up like Satan do.
Lindy that is false God knows what you will say to Him even before you say anything all that rubbish about speaking in tongues is just so much rubbish. In fact what you are doing is glorifying self, not God who is worthy of glorification.
Rabbit seems like you have trouble looking things up so I paste here what the 28 Fundamentals say about the Godhead
At Calvary almost everyone rejected Jesus Only a few recognized who Jesus really was—among them, the dying thief who called Him Lord (Luke 23:42), and the Roman soldier who said, "'Truly this Man was the Son of God! . . . (Mark 15:39).
the product of God's revelation of Himself and His purposes to man."1 This self-revelation is designed to bridge the gulf between a rebellious world and a caring God.
including nature, enlightens everyone (John 1:9). And Paul claimed, "Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made" (Rom. 1:20).
Adonai ("Lord") pictures God as Almighty Ruler (Isa. 6:1; Ps. 35:23). These names emphasize the majestic and transcendent character of God.
God's communicable attributes flow from His loving concern for humanity. They include love (Rom. 5:8), grace (Rom. 3:24), mercy (Ps. 145:9), patience (2 Peter 3:15, NIV), holiness (Ps. 99:9), righteousness (Ezra 9:15; John 17:25), justice (Rev. 22:12), and truth (1 John 5:20). These gifts come only with the Giver Himself.
God that all who choose to believe in Christ shall be saved (John 1:12; Eph.1:4-10)" 4
with God. Appearing to Moses, the Angel of the Lord said, "'I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'" (Ex. 3:6).
2. A working relationship. Within the Godhead an economy of function exists. God does not unnecessarily duplicate work. Order is the first law of heaven, and God works in orderly ways. This orderliness issues from and preserves the union within the Godhead. The Father seems to act as source, the Son as mediator, and the Spirit as actualizer or applier.
2 They are the cosmological, teleological, ontological, anthropological, and religion arguments. See, e.g., T. H. Jemison, Christian Beliefs (Mountain View, CA: Pacific Press, 1959), p. 72; Richard Rice, The Reign of God (Berrien Springs, MI: Andrews University Press, 1985), pp. 53-56. These arguments do not prove God's existence but show that there is a strong possibility that God exists. Ultimately, however, belief in God's existence is based on faith.[back] [top]
3 Yahweh is "a conjectural transliteration" of the sacred name of God in the Old Testament (Ex. 3:14, 15; 6:3). The original Hebrew contained the four consonants YHWH. In time, out of fear of profaning God's name, the Jews refused to read this name aloud. Instead, wherever YHWH appeared they would read the word Adonai. In the seventh or eighth century A.D., when vowels were added to the Hebrew words, the Masoretes supplied the vowels of Adonai to the con. sonants YHWH. The combination produced the word Jehovah, which is used in the KJV. Other translations prefer the word Yahweh (Jerusalem Bible) or LORD (RSV, NIV, NKJV). (See Siegfried H. Horn, Seventh-day Adventist Bible Dictionary, Don F. Neufeld, ed., rev. ed., [Washington, D. C.: Review and Herald, 1979] pp. 1192, 1193).[back] [top]
Actually I don't have a problem looking things up Elijah, research and triage was a major part of my job not mind reading. However, based on your responses I could assume one of three probabilities 1. you have a problem comprehending things, 2. You are Redva or 3. You are reading Redva's mind but still giving the wrong response based on the question asked. I would probably choose option 1 since it's the most rational one so I'll help you out by explaining my question to Redva further.
When someone ask a specific person how they define some of the choices they laid out in their post it does not mean someone else can simply post a full layout of something that seems to be interpreted differently based on how the thread is going and call that the other persons answer.
Since you seem to want to push this beyond reason, how about you explain how your response answers my definition question to Redva? I'll also include the definition of the words DEFINITION and YOU.
Hello Redva, Since YOU stated this is to "HELP OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND."
Definition: a statement of the exact meaning of a word, especially in a dictionary.
Can you please help me by explaining your DEFINITION of GODHEAD and FORCE?
Since you stated this is to "HELP OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND." Can you please help me by explaining your definition of GODHEAD and FORCE? It would help me and possibly others by giving us a better perspective on the issue given the specific choices you laid out.
