Is the Holy Spirit a person?

We can pick at Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic words for a long time but the point is not just the fact that the term "He" was incorrect and should have been translated as "that one" (or "it") but more to the truth that the Holy Spirit is not a person but the power of God. As I stated in my study titled "Just what is the Holy Spirit" if the Holy Spirit were considered a person of the Godhead by the apostles they would have addressed it by name with the Father and Son Jesus just as those who believe the Holy Spirit is a person today "always" refer to all three as the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.

In the Hebrew/Aramaic the word “Ruach haKadosh” would mean “The Spirit of the Holy One” where “Ruach haKodesh” means The Holy Spirit. (Notice spelling) Just like har ha-ko’desh means “holy mountain” and admat ha- ko’desh means “The holy land” and ir ha ko’desh means “The holy city” and so on.

Also we find in the book of revelation some very interesting information which is the scripture that shows there are seven spirits of God that He sends out into all the Earth. It states..."And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, (Which we know is Jesus) having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth." Rev 5:6.

It was in fact the Holy Spirit of God that impregnated Mary as we see recorded here in scripture. Also in Luke 1:35 we read "And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God." The word used here in this scripture was “Ruach haKodesh” which means The Holy Spirit so the question is if the Holy Spirit was a third person of the Godhead, and if Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, (which He was) then Jesus "would not be the Son of God the Father," but the Son of the Holy Spirit. This misunderstanding comes about because of the false teaching that God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are a threefold personality of one Divine being. We have found in our research that the teaching of the trinity came from ancient pagan religions and was adopted into Christianity by the Roman Catholic Church. There's no wording in the entire bible that has the word "trinity" or states that the Holy Spirit is a person or a member of the Godhead.

Many who don't want to accept the fact that the Holy Spirit is not a person but the power of God will ignore the facts and how the Holy Spirit was referred to throughout the bible. I could throw a lot of scriptures out here but I don’t believe in doing that as it is the reasonability of the bible student to decide what they want to believe. My responsibility is to be as accurate as possible and never letting my own will get in the way of the facts I find. I do not belong to any religion or church so that makes me neutral in my research as I don’t care what the truth is… I just want to know the truth!
