DEV--Don's Edited Version The answer to your question comes from Jesus, and also from the words of John in the verse you quoted. John's words: John assumed that because the unnamed exorcist was not in the inner circle of the Twelve that his exorcism could not therefore be on the "up and up." Jesus' words: In essence, Jesus told John (and all the other ...

It depends. Ecclesiology in Eastern Orthodox Church is predominantly based from their Pneumatology that the Holy Spirit proceeds eternally from the Father alone. In this sense, the visible Church is connected invisibly to the Holy Spirit who proceeded not from the Son. This is why decentralization is the dominant view in Eastern Orthodoxy. In the other hand ...

No.The Holy Spirit was not Jesus' Father. Rather, God fathered Jesus in Mary through the Holy Spirit: Matthew 1:18 (NIV) This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Jesus has only one Father and ...

While I can't say with certainty, I think the answer is likely to be yes as supported by the arguments below, and I think you are on to something big! This is a question I wondered about after reading the verses discussed below from the Bible. There are a few arguments that lead me to believe the Holy Spirit might be feminine: Genesis 1:26-27 makes a ...

Jesus died for You You will go to Heaven “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. ” (Bible, New Testament, Matthew 12:32) There was the First Aion Age when Jesus was walking the Earth and arguing with the Pharisees, which ...

(LDS view) According to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the gender of the Holy Ghost is male, simply because the Holy Ghost is a spirit man, a spirit son of God the Father, and one of our spirit brothers: "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that the Holy Ghost is a spirit man, a spirit son of God the Father. It ...

I’ll try to answer the question from a Catholic perspective and, additionally, provide some supplementary information about what has been mentioned in the comments. The general answer to the question is “no”. First, God is Almighty, both before and after His revelation to us. So you can’t exercise power over Him. We can do wonders in Jesus’ name, but only ...

Spanish is an example of such languages. As far as describing spirits there should be a third gender, ...

The Hebrew language only has two grammatical genders: masculine (זָכָר) and feminine (נְקֵבָה). Therefore, every Hebrew noun has an inherent grammatical gender. In the case of the noun רוּחַ, the grammatical gender is feminine. Yet, this does not mean the natural gender of the Holy Spirit is feminine. As for why the Holy Spirit would be "male," so to speak, ...

As set out in the various scriptures quoted above, the whole tenor of scripture is a presumption that the gifts of the Holy Spirit form a normal ongoing part of church life. To make a case otherwise involves a decision to take scriptures like 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 away from the straightforward meaning of the words.

I would let the Scripture speak for me: Peter clearly says that in the last days God shall pour out His Spirit. Though he applied the verse to indicate the outpouring of God's Spirit at his own time, last days would mean this time period as well (dual application) Acts 2:17 - 18: And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out ...

Here are some of my thoughts on this: 1) John 20:21 "As the Father has sent me, I am sending you." Jesus' ministry included much healing. If we are sent as Jesus was, wouldn't we also be sent with the ability to heal? 2) Matt 28: 19-20 "Therefore go and make disciples ... 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Jesus had sent ...
