An interesting question! I would like to add the following points too: There was a need for the Holy Spirit: Jesus had a work to do in the Heavenly Sanctuary: Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, ...

The Holy Spirit is God. He is not an "it." He is not a divine influence. He is not a fleecy white cloud. He is not a ghost or a concept. He is a person possessing a will, intellect and emotions. He is God -- with all the attributes of deity. He is the third person of the Trinity -- co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. There is only one God, but He ...

Why did Jesus have to leave for the Holy Spirit to come? John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. Jesus says that the Holy Spirit will not come unless after he departs, Jesus sends him. Jesus has to ...

Thomas Aquinas gives four reasons: When "he was still living among them ... they were not prepared, for carnal love is contrary to the Holy Spirit, since the Spirit is spiritual love." He connects this with 2 Corinthians 5: "And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised. So then ...

Though not a Catholic, something @MattGutting said struck me as particularly important and pregnant (no pun intended) with meaning. He said, "Thus, God the Father is THE Father; the Son proceeds from him, and the Spirit from both. St. Thomas Aquinas, in the Summa Theologica, gives a philosophically dense discussion of the topic in the 'Treatise on the ...

Jesus had two fathers. One was Joseph, his earthly adoptive father. The other is the Father, his heavenly father (and ours as well). He had no earthly biological father. That is the distinction. The Father is not Jesus' earthly father in any sense whatsoever. The person of Christ is eternally begotten of the person of the Father. That doesn't and didn't ...

Following @FMS' comment, I've completely rethought my answer. It helped that I discovered that (as usual) St. Thomas Aquinas was there before me. He wrote about the question in the Third Part of the Summa Theologica, Question 32, Article 3. Your question is brought up (more or less) in Objection 3 of this article: Further, God is called our Father by ...

Jesus was begotten BY God, THROUGH the power of the Holy Spirit. He was not begotten by the Holy Spirit, so the Holy Spirit is not His father. (See John 3:16) Since God has a body, He would have had to have sex with Mary to impregnate her. But then she wouldn't have been a virgin. However, since the Holy Ghost does not have a body, he could do the job on ...

Gnostic Light The word Spirit means Breath. How did the Holy Spirit come into existence? God who is Existence took a breath. Who created the Holy Spirit? God did it is his breath. Did the Holy Spirit exist from the beginning or was it God who created the Holy Spirit? The beginning started when he started to breath. It was God who took his breath. If it ...

There was the First Aion Age when Jesus was walking the Earth and arguing with the Pharisees, which corresponds to when Jesus said “This age” (Bible, New Testament, Matthew 12:31-32) There was the Second Aion Age when Jesus was dead in the tomb, which corresponds to when Jesus said “the age to come” (Bible, New Testament, Matthew 12:31-32) There is a ...

Remember John is Jesus's earthly cousin. When Mary went to visit Elisabeth Luke 1:39 it mentions that John leaped in the womb at the sound of Marys voice so basically that was the first sign John was no ordinary man he was of the Heavenly relm.. It also states in Luke Elisabeth found out she would be with child by an Angel as well..so basically what I get ...

First I noticed from the scripture that the Holy Spirit is a Him, a person. Jesus told us that unless He Jesus went away, the Holy Spirit would not come to us, and Jesus called Him, 'The Comforter'. This is a title of the Holy Spirit. John 16. A characteristic of the Holy Spirit is that 'He doesn't speak of Himself, but draws attention to Jesus and lifts ...

Very interesting question. I have read the verse in many different english Bible translations and found that many do not make the same statement. Some don't even reference the Spirit at all (in assumption that this is not the point of the message being conveyed in the verse) but some do make this reference but mostly indicating to "..containing a residue of ...

Your question is misleading. Did He not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? this doesn't say that the marriage is filled with the Spirit, it says that He blessed the marriage by the Holy Spirit, with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a thing that takes action, It does things like filling, blessing, anointing, joining etc. ...
