Heavenly Parents, Personalities of GOD, Feminine examples of Holy Spirit

3. The Holy Spirit as a personality that is feminine

a. Heavenly parent

Lu 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her,

  • The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee,
  • and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee:
  • therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

    Notice three things in this verse:

  • The power of the Highest is the Father,
  • The Holy Spirit also comes over Mary
  • there are two Beings in the born process..

    This is perhaps the strongest evidence that the Father and the Holy Spirit have contrasting functional descriptors, because these two Beings are together during the mystery we call incarnation. Therefore we can suggest maleness-love is contrasted with femaleness-love, these two terms suggest differences in personalites within the Godhead. But we must also bear in mind this is a figurative picture about GOD as a whole, and just as GOD created mankind in their image in Genesis 1:26, this does NOT mean GOD is the exactly as humans. We see darkly, and GOD is not composed of earth objects, or matter. However, the functioning manner of love is different, love is not dependent upon matter or earth objects, love comes from GOD and since there are two Hebrew words for love, this verse strongly suggests there are personality differences within the Godhead.

    b. Image of Elohiym

    Genesis 1:27

  • So Elohiym created man in his own image,
  • in the image of Elohiym created he him;
  • male and female created he them

    Notice three things in this verse:

  • Elohiym has both masculine and feminine aspects
  • Elohiym created both aspects into Adam
  • Adam is a symbol of united love.

    Mankind contains both maleness love and femaleness love inside him. God created Adam, but He built the woman, taking a different aspect of love out of the man, showing that the two indeed become one flesh. One complete unit of love or character.

    1Ki 11:5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians,

    Ashtoreth is a female deity, expressed as 'elohiym' showing that 'elohiym' is also both masculine and feminine.

    Ps 24:10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.

    The Hebrew shows a feminine description of GOD here.

    Ps 41:13 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting.

    The Hebrew shows a masculine description of GOD here.

    Therefore the heavenly powers express both masculine and feminine aspects of love. If love was a single concept in the Bible, one might consider Elohiym expresses only one personality. But this is not the case. There are two Hebrew words for love.

    There are many examples of GOD (Elohiym - the Family of GOD) showing pictures of maleness love and femaleness love. The fact that both pictures are shown demonstrate that GOD must have two personalities of love. One could propose that each Divine Being can demonstrate BOTH forms of love. That is a possible theory of faith. But a better theory of faith is to consider each Divine Being has a unique personality expressing love, as shown by Luke 1:35.

    See more studies on love.

    c. Personalites of Elohiym

    Here shows the Holy Spirit expresses femaleness-love as a personality:-

    Isa 63:8 For he said, Surely they are my people,

  • children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour (Yasha -Jesus ).

    Isa 63:9 In all their affliction he was afflicted,

  • and the angel (malak - messenger) of his presence saved them:
  • in his love (ahabuh - femaleness love) and in his pity he redeemed them;
  • and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

    10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit:

  • therefore he was turned to be their enemy,
  • and he fought against them.

    The 'he' here is the Saviour, or Jesus in the Old Testament. He is called the Saviour (Yasha), the one who saves (yasha).

    Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son,

  • and thou shalt call his name JESUS (Yasha):
  • for he shall save (yasha) his people...

    Notice He does not save under his power directly, or all humans would be destroyed.. He saves His own through the medium, and this medium is "His" because it is his power flowing through the medium, but the medium changes the power flow, making the flow safer for those found missing to endure the heavenly flow and survive. This is why you hardly ever see the agency or medium on it's own.

    Indeed some religions say "his holy spirit" is Jesus own projected spirit..such religions fail to see that such a force would destroy sinners... One requires a personal Being to be a medium, because the medium must constantly change the heavenly flow to suit different peoples and different levels of faith.

    See studies of the medium.

    So if we unravel this passage, Jesus is their Saviour (Yasha) and He saves (yasha) His people. He does this via the messenger of His presence, the Holy Spirit. The Hebrew word 'malak' does not mean angel, though the word may be an angel in some verse contexts, the word really means 'messenger' for all verses of context, regardless who personally the messenger might be.

    This is an interesting passage. It shows Jesus as a saviour in the Old Testament. All members of GOD can show femaleness love, but what is interesting in this passage, is the messenger of His presence, is the Holy Spirit, who is mentioned by name in the next verse. Of all members of the Godhead, the heavenly Being expressing mostly femaleness love, would be the Holy Spirit, as this passage suggests. But in fairness to other readers, the Saviour and the Holy Spirit work with Israel here, so one needs to unravel which members are functioning with which expressions.

    The only way one could obtain clearly the personality of the Holy Spirit, is to find passages where the Holy Spirit is only mentioned, without other heavenly members.

    On the next web page we will look at other examples that suggest the Holy Spirit is feminine.
