Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit


If you have ever heard the phrase “the Holy Spirit” and you want to know what it means, where do you start? Well, you have to start on page one of the Bible. Where the uncreated world is depicted as this dark chaotic place. But then, above the chaos God’s Spirit is there, hovering, ready to bring about life and order and beauty. Okay, but what is God’s Spirit? Yeah, so the Spirit is the way the Biblical authors talk about God’s personal presence. The Hebrew word is Ruakh. Ruu-a-achh? Yeah, you’ve gotta clear your throat at the end. So, what is it? Ruakh can refer to a number of different things, but what they all have in common is energy. Energy? How so? So, there’s an invisible energy, that makes the clouds move or the tree branches sway. Right, wind. So in Hebrew, that’s Ruakh. Okay! Now, take a big breath, uwwshh! So you feel that, inside you. Yeah, the air? Well, specifically the energy, right, the vitality in your body that you get from breathing, deeply, that too is, Ruakh. And this is the same word used in the Bible, to describe God’s personal presence. Just like wind and breath are invisible, God’s spirit, is invisible. Wind is powerful, and so God’s spirit is powerful. And just as breath keeps us alive so God’s spirit sustains all of life. Yeah! Ruakh. Now, as we continue on in the story of the Bible We see God’s ruakh giving special empowerment to people for specific tasks. The first person in the Bible that happens to is Joseph God’s spirit enables him to understand and interpret dreams. And then it happens to this guy named “Betsaleel” and he’s an artist! God’s spirit empowers him with wisdom and skills. He’s given creative genius to make beautiful things in the tabernacle. And we also see God’s ruakh empower a group of people called “the prophets”. They’re able to see what’s happening in history from God’s point of view. That’s exactly right! And here’s the problem as the prophet saw it. While God’s ruakh had created a really good world humans have given in to evil. They’ve unleashed chaos into it through their injustice. A new type of disorder. Yes. And the prophet said the spirit would come, just like in Genesis 1, but now, to transform the human heart, to empower people to truly love God and others. How will this new active God spirit happen? Well, centuries past and we’re introduced to Jesus. And at the beginning of his mission, there’s a beautiful scene where Jesus is being baptized in the waters of the Jordan river. Yeah, the sky opens up and God’s spirit comes and rests on him like a bird. The story sang that God’s spirit is empowering Jesus to begin the new creation. And we see this happening when he heals people or forgives their sins. He’s creating life where there once was death. Now, Israel’s religious leaders oppose Jesus and they eventually have him killed. But even here, God’s spirit is at work. The earliest disciples of Jesus who saw him alive from the dead said it was God’s energizing spirit that raised Jesus. This is the beginning of new creation. Yes, and it is still going. When Jesus appeared to his closest followers, he breathed on them and said “Receive the Holy Spirit.” And soon after that, the Spirit powerfully comes on all of his disciples. So that they can become a part of this new creation and share the good news and learn how to live by the energy and influence of God’s spirit. And so today, the spirit is still hovering in dark places. Yes, pointing people to Jesus, transforming and empowering them so they can love God and others. And the Christian hope is that the Spirit is going to finish the job. The story of the Bible ends with a vision of a new humanity living in a new world that’s permeated with God’s love and life-giving spirit.

  2. So it is sort of how ki/chi is interpreted; like how Goku needed several episodes to harness all the life force from everyone to make the Spirit Bomb. However, ki/chi seems vapid.

  3. Think of Genesis The Creation
    Then The Baptism Of Jesus!
    The Spirit hovering then coming down
    Bringing Gods Life!
    Jesus is The New Creation, & The New Covenant! This is The birth! His Baptism!

    Stirring The waters of Eternal Life! 🕊
    Jesus The Tree Of Life!!! ✝️

  4. I really liked it but was hoping you would have mentioned Acts 2 we get a new life in Jesus through the Holy Spirit but the Power and boldness doesn't come until we baptized with the Holy Spirit. God bless you all awesome videos for sure!!

  5. John 14:16
    ,17,26                 (The Father
    sent the comforter)

       And I will ask the Father and He will give
    you another Comforter to be with you forever.

       But you know him for he lives with you and
    will be in you.

       But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit whom the
    Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of
    everything I have said to

  6. This is slap in face to ppl who believes Jesus was just a Man let me tell u he wasn't was he is and he will be forever, and yes he's God end of convo gbu all

  7. OK I watched this video for 2nd time this video can give wrong idea of Jesus. to none Christian. like I said before, holy spirit came on Jesus when he was baptized? Or it was Jesus who was in the beginning himself And holy spirit which came to earth in human form, hmm ur channel have serious mistakes which can give wrong idea to none believers please improve ur explanations my 19 year old brother can explain well off then u guys being professional and older in this things gbu,

  8. When it comes upon you it feels like overwhelming love and joy that you can hardly take it in. You feel as though you will burst. You are in such awe that God would take time to Express it to you. It will cause even tears of joy. That's one of the many ways the Holy Spirit works. It's amazing….

  9. 3:10 and they become a 'sim' get it? Because of the plumbob? But kidding aside, I'm amaze of these animations. Im literally crying while watching these. May God blessed this channel!

  10. Praise God… This video is really wonderful. The way you all put it through really makes it easy to understand what things in the Bible means.
    One thing in particular in this video, if it can be double checked is the part where Holy Spirit is portrayed as Power, which really He is but not portrayed as a Person, the 3rd person of the Trinity. In this video you yourself explained by giving an example of ice, water & vapor which all means the one then why differenciate GOD & Jesus as person and Holy Spirit as energy. Your video shows that after when Jesus was resurrected, He blew on His disciples and asked them to recieve the Holy Spirit which they did, thats the Truth as Bible says, but the remaining part of the same Truth also says that Jesus asked the disciples to tarry into Jerusalem until they recieve the Power of the Holy Spirit which you forget to portray. I personally don't deny that Holy Spirit is not Power but I believe that He is a PERSON WITH POWER as what the Bible says.
    Forgive me if I've been in any way harsh on my words with you. I really love your channel and the videos which are up there. I on regular basis download your video any use it as a tool for my study and also for training many through it. The work you people are doing is really marvellous as keep it going on as an inspiration for many.
    GOD BLESS YOU…

  11. This particular video is a bit misleading, in that you describe the Holy Spirit as some "force" or " energy" or "Personal Presence" but He (not it) is a Person…it's not right to describe a person as an energy or a force…the title of the video is Holy Spirit…if you're going to talk about the Holy Spirit, then present Him as He is, and not how you think is best for Him to be represented….now I'm actually wondering if you yourselves really know who the Holy Spirit is….

  13. But what’s the evidence of receiving the gift of The Holy Spirit fellas? The book of Acts tells us. Why wasn’t this key piece spoken about in this video???
    The evidence of receiving the gift of The Holy Ghost is speaking in tongues. It happened to every new Christian convert in the Bible, as described throughout the book of Acts.

  14. Thumbs down because the translation was wrong especially when u say wind it's smell not wind. Now you figure out the rest it's aramaic but twisted so you get hebrew jibrish.

  15. By the way there is no such thing as good and evil because it doesn't make sence for any thing to self destruct when itself was instructed to instruct.

  16. And what is this about good and evil or black and white better yet negative and positive crap when we know now that it is more than just two things

  17. I LOVE YA VIDEOS MAN THANKS FOR MAKING THIS VIDEO AND MAY GOD BLESS YA ALL AND MAY THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH US AMEN😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇

  18. oh oh The ruarch is not ENERGY it's the SPIRIT of Yahweh in us, we the elects are GOD TEMPLE (born from Heaven) we do not born from an energy but we can be born by receiving God Spirit in us.The ruarch is THE BREATH THE WORD coming out of Jesus mouth,all things have been created by is BREATH-WORD (who created all things)

    Psalm33.6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

  19. When I was a Jw and I told people that I don’t believe that the Holy Spirit is a person. It’s God’s active force or wind. It’s not a person.

  20. Just remember that there’s a difference between the Begettal of the Holy Spirit and what the Old Testament prophets had. Those in the OT we merely inspired but it.

  21. The holy spirit is a person and I will explain to you with biblical verses that it is so.

    What makes a person unique is that we have the ability to think.

    1 Corinthians 2:10 "But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the dee things of God," therefore if he searches all things then he has intellect.

    What makes a person unique is that we have our own nothing and nobody forces us to do something we do not want.

    1 Corinthians 12:11 "But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

    so this means that he does his will , And finally, what makes a person unique is that we have the capacity to feel.

    Ephesians 4:30 "And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption"

    Therefore the holy spirit is not an energy or active force as some religions call it, the holy spirit is a loving and also powerful being. And our relationship and communion must be a priority in our lives, so we will know and know who he really is. Many people concentrate on the father, the son but forget about the holy spirit and according to James 4: 5 "do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The Spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? i felt in my heart to make this more clear and accurate according to the bible. God bless everyone reading this.

  22. William Lane Craig claims he is inspired by the Holy Spirit.
    He promotes the Kalam Cosmological Argument which was debunked a thousand years ago and has no evidence to support such a belief.

  23. Great works ALL CREW ……. 1 question…….ENOCH…NOAH…ABRAHAM.. and JACOB..all have MYSTIKAL encounters wid da SPIRIT…you say JOSEPH…interested to no why u say this in ya movie?..
    .one LOVE

  24. Ephesians 2 : 8 " For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves – not by works, so that no one can boast."

  25. May God bless you guys. Don't stop making these videos. They are great and very informative. I pray for you. May the devil stay away from you. 🙂

  26. My adult daughter prays in the Holy Spirit and has a friendly relationship with Him but of late The Holy Spirit tells he that she has to open her third eye. She also sees purple shapes in her minds eye and while praying yesterday The Holy Spirit told her "come" ( meaning follow Him) through her third eye and that she should not be afraid. But my daughter is scared. Can you please tell me if you have come across such an experience? thankyou.

  27. I liked the video. Yet, I disagree with Holy Spirit being referred as or compared to energy. Especially since this term is widespread throughout new age religion.

  28. How many days will it take of praying and reading the bible to recover physically and spiritually? Because i feel like Satan has punched and kicked me 100 times during the night and i feel week during the day. The doctor said i am completely healthy – physically and mentally.

  29. I AGREE THAT EVEN SPEAKS IN TONGUE CAN COUNTERFEIT BY THE DEVIL, BUT WHAT I WILL SHARE YOU NOW ACCORDING TO WHAT IS WRITTEN CANNOT BE COUNTERFEITED BY ANY ONE SAYING THAT THEY ARE THE TRUE MINISTER OF GOD NOR THE DEVIL:

    CHRIST GAVE US AN EXAMPLE :

    John 13:15 King James Version (KJV)

    15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

    WHERE DID JESUS CHRIST PREACH THE GOSPEL ?

    Proverbs 1:20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
    [a]Wisdom shouts in the street, She raises her voice in the markets;
    WHO IS THIS WISDOM SHOUTED IN THE STREETS AND RAISES VOICE IN THE MARKET ?

    1 Corinthians 1:24 King James Version (KJV)

    24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

    CHRIST HIMSELF IS THE WISDOM OF GOD SHOUTS IN THE STREETS AND IN THE MARKET BY PREACHING THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

    THESE ARE THE SAMPLE THAT HE WANTS US TO DO ON HOW AND WHERE TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.

    BUT YOU CANNOT DO or MAKE IT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE PUBLIC ( Streets and Market Places ) WITHOUT THE TRUE SPIRIT OF GOD :

    Acts 4:31

    And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were
    assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

    THE REAL FILLED BY THE TRUE SPIRIT OF GOD ARE THOSE WHO SPAKE THE WORD OF GOD WITH BOLDNESS

    Acts 8:4

    Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

    THEY WERE SCATTERED EVERY WHERE IN THE STREETS AND EVEN IN THE MARKET PLACES PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD LIKE WHAT JESUS CHRIST DID AS HE GAVE US AN EXAMPLE :

    Luke 13:25-26 King James Version (KJV)

    25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

    26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

    MANY PREACHERS NOW CLAIM THAT THEY WERE FILLED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD BUT THEY CANNOT PREACH THE GOSPEL OR THE WORD OF GOD IN THE PUBLIC PLACES.

    NOTE :

    THE REAL FILLED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD SPAKE THE WORD OF GOD WITH BOLDNESS SPIRIT.

    NO ONE CAN STOP THEM LIKE PETER, PAUL, PHILIP, EVEN AT PRESENT TIME OR EVEN TO STOP THEM WITH THREATS :

    Acts 4:29

    And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy
    servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word.

    BECAUSE THE SPIRIT WORKS IN THEM IS THE SAME SPIRIT WORKS TODAY, THEY HAVE ONE SPIRIT EVEN BY PREACHING THE GOSPEL:

    Philippians 1:27

    Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

    NOW WHO ARE THOSE WHO HAVE THE TRUE AND REAL SPIRIT OF GOD ?

    Acts 4:29

    And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy
    servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word.

    Acts 8:4

    Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

    Acts 8:4

    Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

    WHERE ARE THEY NOW ? SCATTERED EVERYWHERE …

    THE LORD TEACH US HOW TO KNOW FALSE PROPHET AND NOT :

    Matthew 7:20

    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    John 15 King James Version (KJV)

    15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

    2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

    3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

    4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

    5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

    1 Corinto 9: 2 

    Kung sa iba'y hindi ako apostol, sa inyo man lamang ako'y gayon; sapagka't ang tatak ng aking pagkaapostol ay kayo sa Panginoon.

  30. Me: welp in going to sleep now
    My Phone: The Holy Spirit new video!
    Me: well my cousin stay’s up till 4 in the morning who need to sleep any ways
    Me:it’s only like 1Am in the morning😸

  31. Jesus comes soon, everything that is in the Bible is true, make sure that no one deceives you because many will come in the name of Jesus and many mislead uncleanness. True Jesus will appear globally so that the whole world sees it, every human eye, not locally, so as to deliver God's will and to spread this good news to all Amen. @

  32. I think the holy sport was taken from God and it’s a part of him but it’s what we call female just like how God made eve from Adam and maybe that’s why females are more sensitive to the Holy Spirit than males

  33. 5 The Father stood before His children and explained unto them that He had chosen a leader from among them to watch over His work in this part of His kingdom.

    6 And the Father called forth Jehovah from among the other spirits and presented him before them as the one that He had chosen.

    7 And it came to pass that another valiant spirit was called forth and presented unto the spirits by the Father.

    8 And the Father brought forth one of the spirits and presented him to the other spirits that resided there. And I beheld that this spirit was Michael, who would become the mortal father of all the children of men.

    15 There before the throne of the Eternal Father, even Elohim, stood Jehovah, even Jesus the Christ, and Michael, the father of all the children of men, even the man Adam. And every knee bowed and every soul sang praises to this Holy Trinity.

    16 There appeared a sea of many souls, even more numerous than the sands upon the sea shore, each singing praises of glory towards the throne of God, and all kneeling in honor of their Father and their God.

    11 And it came to pass that Michael went down and passed through the days of his probation and died; yea, even so, he returned once again to the world of spirits from whence he came.

    12 And Michael ruled at the right hand of Jehovah and reigned in his stead when the time came for Jehovah to pass through the days of his probation.

    16 And for the small space of time in between the death of his mortal body and his resurrection, Jesus entered once again into the spirit world and bestowed upon Michael all the powers and authority that he had received from the Father, so that Michael could rule and reign in the spirit world.

    17 And now, this is the mystery that hath not been revealed except unto those who have been faithful and received the knowledge of God by way of the spirit of God. For behold, Michael is the other member of the Godhead, yea even the Holy Ghost.

    20 But Michael would not take upon himself a resurrected body, but was called and chosen to rule and reign in the spirit world as the Holy Ghost until the work of the Father, concerning His children that belong to this part of His kingdom, is finished.

    52 And in this way, Michael, who is the Holy Ghost, is known as the archangel who is in constant battle for the souls of men with Lucifer, who is also known as the devil.

  34. 1. How can 'God"s Spirit's be above something that doesn't exist? – it can't (There is just….🤫 Nothing) ~~at least in this Universe. Then BANG!!!!…. & There was a Diety (maybe more)… The Diety got bored, and decided to create….and the Universe came into being…. But continue (There cannot be a day without a set Earth and Sun ~~ Technically impossible they were created in 2 days; as the day could not have existed, prior to them.

  35. I pray for the Holy Spirit to do all that it was designed to do, i pray all my prayers, subjects and stipulations have ruakh inside and out of them, i pray all that i have not prayed against have ruakh inside them as well as out. Specifically God's ruakh most of all. I pray against all evil, chaos and disorder. I pray all new acts of God's Spirit all be loosed inside and out of all my prayers, subjects and stipulations. I pray for and loose God's new creations as well all of them in like manner as well. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit I pray amen.

  36. As a prophet of the spirit I am please to let all saints know this to all of the good souls the entire spirit of our world is free and clean of all spiritual nuisances which means that the Holy Spirit War is over and the Angels have control of the Spirit for all saints. All Praise to the Lord of Heaven and Hell.

  37. So in my opinion(scientifically, not against God though) the Holy Spirit are cosmic rays and to go against the Holy Spirit means to go against the nature created by cosmic particles(Holy Spirit) like deforestation and etc…

  38. Love your vids. I was listening to your podcasts. I've only just come across them in the last month and I find them interesting, easy to listen to, and easily explained with just the right amount of detail, without it going on and on..and on. God has given you both a gift!! Thank you for sharing it. God Bless..
    Are either of you Aspie by chance?

  39. When i asked for the Holy Spirit I felt a little more angry what’s happening to me…

    I literally have no hope to become Christian.

    Nvm the hope is coming back…

  40. Im not christian and can someone explain the Holy spirit to me,is it god?is it jesus or is jesus the holy spirit?

  41. Are you saying the Holy Spirit is ENERGY? If so, are you sure, and where do you get that from the bible? Seems to me like energy is part of creation, not the creator.

  42. Such a wonderful video! Thank you guys for taking the time to make this and share it with others. I learned a lot.

  43. This left me wanting😔. The Holy Spirit is a lover and is possessive over us. The most important to note that’s missing is that we are speaking of a HE not an it or some energy or power. I love some of your others works. God bless your efforts.

  44. Nice work on this one boys.
    I used it as a link to a news station and warned them about the dangers of lack of belief in Jesus Christ and just whose toes they are stepping on advertising wishy washy luke warmth.
