The spirit of God dwelt in Jesus

Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

the word of Jesus, John 14:10

Our bodies are just vessels of our souls or spirits. Our spirits were created by God but Jesus is special since his spirit is a portion of God that went out from Him _and that’s what made Jesus also God. When God created the universe He sent forth his ‘word’, and this ‘word’ was the one which created all things. The Gospel of John says, “In the beginning was the Word”, so there’s no Son yet in the beginning of Creation but the Word. The reason why the Son was manifested is because Adam fell to sin, thus mankind lost its eternal life. The task of this Word or Spirit of God was to be part of humanity so that to defeat the devil through perfect obedience of the law [1 John 3:8]. God sent His Word or Spirit and entered the Earth through a human body so that to save humanity from perishing. It is man who died from sin, therefore it is man who will rise from the dead through perfectness or sinlessness. In Psalm 2:7 God decreed, ”You are my son, today I have become your Father”. Why God has become the father of Jesus? Because He was not the Son of God in the previous but the Word. The Sonship of Jesus of God is not biological in nature but spiritual through a divine decree. This is what the apostle John meant when he said in his Gospel, “and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” [John 1:14]. God promised to Moses that He will raise an Israelite to be His speaker [Deuteronomy 18:18-19], and He will put His spirit on him [Isaiah 42:1]. Below are Biblical passages telling about the Spirit of God (Word) who will come to the world by means of a man (Jesus)

Quoted from the Old Testament 

1. [Isiah 11:12] And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.

2. [Isaiah 42:1] “Here is My Servant, whom I uphold, My Chosen One, in whom My soul delights. I will put My Spirit on Him, and He will bring justice to the nations.

3. [Isaiah 59:21]  And as for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your offspring, or out of the mouth of your children’s offspring,” says the LORD, “from this time forth and forevermore.”

4. [Isaiah 61:1] The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners, 

Quoted from the New Testament 

1. [Matthew 12:15-21] Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. A large crowd followed him, and he healed all who were ill. He warned them not to tell others about him. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:

“Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.

2. [Luke 4:16-21] Then Jesus came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. As was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath. And when He stood up to read, the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. Unrolling it, He found the place where it was written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Then He rolled up the scroll, returned it to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on Him, and He began by saying, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

3. [John 1:14] And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

4. [John 10:38] But if I am doing them, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works themselves, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father.”

5. [John 14:10] Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

6. [John 14:11] Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me, but if you do not believe me, believe because of the miraculous deeds themselves.

7. [Acts 10:38] How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him



Jesus was worshiped by his believers

Islamic Prostration vs. Kneeling


God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

John 4:24
Angel Gabriel greets Mary

What is a spirit? In my definition, spirit is an existence which has life in itself that we cannot see and touch, unless it transforms into a physical being like God can. God, angel, and ghost are spirits that can interact or communicate with people. But there are also spirits that cannot communicate with us. These are wisdom/mind, feeling/emotion, energy/might/power, word/verbal statement, etc. 

Wisdom is a spirit because it exists and it is working. Without wisdom, we cannot have an idea on how to perform our daily works.

Feeling is a spirit because it exists and it is working. Without our feelings, we cannot have relationships with one another. If we get hurt we suffer from the pain inside us.

Energy is also a spirit since it exists and it is working. Without the living existence of energy, we cannot rise up and walk. Without the energy of God, heavenly bodies won’t float in the universe (Hebrews 1:3).

Word is also a spirit for it exists and it is working. When someone speaks, you hear it and react to it. When God uttered ‘let there be light’ to create a ‘light’, the word ‘let there be light’ is a spirit. This is the reason why Jesus is also called ‘the spirit or word of God’. The Bible says, “You send forth your spirit, they are created” (Psalm 104:30), and in other passage it says, “He sent forth his word and healed them” (Psalm 107:20). So spirit & word are used interchangeably here.

When Jesus said, “worship God in spirit”, he meant we should worship God in our hearts (emotions), minds (thoughts), and might (energy). Below are verses commanding us to worship God in spirit;

1. [Deuteronomy 6:5] “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

2. [Deuteronomy 30:6] “Moreover the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.

3. [John 4:23-24] But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such as these to worship Him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

4. [John 7:24] Stop judging by outward appearances, and start judging justly.”

5. [Hebrews 4:12] For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

6. [1 Corinthians 2:11] For who among men knows the thoughts of man except his own spirit within him? So too, no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

7. [1 Corinthians 10:25] Eat anything that is sold in the market without letting your conscience trouble you.

8. [Philippians 3:3] For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh

9. [Romans 1:9] God, whom I serve with my spirit in preaching the gospel of His Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you

10. [Romans 2:29] No, a man is a Jew because he is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise does not come from men, but from God.

11. [Romans 14:17] for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

12. [Galatians 5:25] Since we live by the Spirit, let us walk in step with the Spirit.

13. [1 Peter 1:13] Therefore prepare your minds for action. Be sober-minded. Set your hope fully on the grace to be given you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

14. [1 Peter 3:15-16] But in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give a defense to everyone who asks you the reason for the hope you possess. But respond with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who slander you will be put to shame by your good behavior in Christ.

15. [1 Timothy 1:5] The goal of our instruction is the love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and a sincere faith.

16. [Hebrews 10:22] let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 

17. [2 Corinthians 10:4-5] For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;

18. [2 Timothy 2:19] But God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The LORD knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the LORD must turn away from evil.”

19. [Romans 8:13] For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live.

Gabriel is the holy spirit in Islam, is he the same Gabriel in Christianity?

In the Bible, Holy Spirit is God and Gabriel is His Angel so they are different. There are three different angel figures mentioned in the Bible; they are Gabriel the messenger angel, Michael the warrior angel, and Satan the fallen angel. Muhammad had a little knowledge about Tanakh and the New Testament the reason he erred in identifying Holy Spirit as Angel Gabriel. The Jews caught the ignorance of muhammad about the Spirit when he was asked, he answered only Allah has the knowledge of the Spirit (Q17:85).

Catholicism, the religion founded by Jesus, defines the word “holy” as pure, perfect, or sinless. Therefore, only God could take this attribute because He is the only perfect being. God is naturally spirit, and He is holy too, the reason He is called “Holy Spirit” in other title.  Jesus is also called “holy” [Luke 1:35] or “perfecter” because he’s an amount of spirit emanated from God (the Father). So if Jesus (the Son), the Holy Spirit, and the Father have the same attributes, it means they are one nature. In Catholic teaching, Muhammad cannot be called holy because he’s a very sinful man (polygamist, murderer, rapist, robber, etc.). He’s one of those who will be thrown into the fiery lake on the  Judgment Day. Ironically, though Muslims denied the deity of Jesus, their Quran also testifies that Jesus is spirit or word proceeding from Allah [Surah 4:171, 66:12, 21:91, & 3:45]. A spirit of God is different from a created spirit, thus to say Jesus is a spirit of God, it means He is God Himself. Since there are many type of spirits (God, angel, soul, thought, energy, and others), the word “holy” is attached to the word “spirit” so that to mean divinity, that the spirit mentioned is referred to the divine spirit.

Moreover, some passages of the Quran tell us that angels and the Spirit are different beings. Jibril is an angel, thus he is not the Spirit. 

[78:38] On the day when the angels and the Spirit stand arrayed, they speak not, saving him whom the Beneficent alloweth and who speaketh right.

[16:2] He sendeth down the angels with the Spirit of His command unto whom He will of His bondmen, (saying): Warn mankind that there is no Allah save Me, so keep your duty unto Me.

[70:4] The angels and the Spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:

[97:4] The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the permission of their Lord, with all decrees.

[17:85] And they ask you (O Muhammad SAW) concerning the Ruh (the Spirit); Say: “The Ruh (the Spirit): it is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little.”

Hadiths also identify the Spirit and angels differently;

[Sahih Muslim 487a] ‘A’isha reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace he upon him) used to pronounce while bowing and prostrating himself: All Glorious, All Holy, Lord of the Angels and the Spirit.

[Sunan an-Nasa’i 1134] It was narrated that ‘Aishah said: “The Messenger of Allah said when bowing and prostrating: ‘Subbuhun Quddusun Rabbul-mala’ikati war’ruh (Perfect, Most Holy, Lord of the Angels and the Spirit).” 


Since God or the Holy Spirit sent forth His spirit (Psalm 104:30), He became the source spirit (the Father) of the sent Spirit (the Son) [Psalm 2:7]. Jesus is not a biological son of God as what Allah believes, but He is the emanated Spirit coming from God (the source). The Bible says the the Son is the radiance of the Father’s glory, and the upholder of all things [Hebrews 1:3]. When we say Satan is the father of lies, it means he is the source of lies, and not the biological father of lies.

The problem of our Muslim brothers is they thought that when God came to the world, He left His abode and brought His whole being to Earth. So when Jesus died there was no more God. But it is not the case, because God is not human which has limited resources. He is extremely vast [Isaiah 66:1], He could pour His spirit upon all flesh [Joel 2:28 & Ezekiel 39:29]. He could send His spirit [Isaiah 48:16]. Keep in mind that God is everywhere, He covers the whole universe. In fact, this is the reason why all the heavenly bodies are floating in the empty space because God upholds them [Hebrews 1:3].

Jesus told us that after Him, He will send a Spirit of the Truth (Holy Spirit), He says; “When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, He will testify about Me [John 15:26]. Notice also that Jesus has the power to send a spirit from the Father so he is almighty. This Spirit of Truth will testify about Jesus, but referring to [John 8:18], Jesus is the one who will testify about Himself. He says, I am the one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bear witness of me. Therefore, the Holy Spirit (Spirit of Truth) to be sent by Jesus is also Himself.  And since Jesus is also the Father [Isaiah 9:6], these three are one _the Trinity. Kindly read the supporting verses;

[Isaiah 9:6] For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Jesus confirmed Isaiah 9:6 by declaring He and the Father are one [John 10:30].

[Isaiah 48:16] also prophesies that an ever existent being is sent by the Lord God and His Spirit. It says; “Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From the time it took place, I was there. And now the Lord GOD has sent Me, and His Spirit.”

Jesus confirmed Isaiah 48:16 by telling He came down from Heaven and sent by the Father [John 6:38].

Jesus also said that those who have seen Him, have seen the Father. And He is in the Father and the Father is in Him [John 14:9-10] _implying that He is God Himself because they are one with the Father.

The Trinity are one, so they are equal. The arrangement, “the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” has symbolism. It symbolizes the three significant stages of God’s appearance to mankind. First, the Beginning period, in which God introduced Himself to mankind as the creator. Second, the Salvation period, in which God introduced Himself to mankind as a savior. And third, the Judgment period, in which God will introduce Himself to mankind as a Judge.

Jesus serves as our purifier or perfecter, the Salvation sent by God [Isaiah 56:1 & Luke 2:29-30]. “Jesus” is an English transliteration of the word ‘Iesus’, a Greek transliteration for Hebrew ‘Yeshua’ which means “God saves” or “God’s Salvation”. Because of His purity, He can purify those who believe His redemptive work and follow His will. Adam and Eve sinned, mankind lost their eternal life [Genesis 3:23] because the penalty of sin is death [Proverbs 10:16 & Romans 6:23]. And this is what we inherited as heirs of Adam and Eve, the death, for we are born sinners [Psalm 51:5 & 58:3].

Mankind can only regain their eternal life by becoming pure again. But who can bring the pure from impure? It is God alone [Job 14:4]. God is holy, His abode is holy, no sinners can enter there [Revelation 21:8].

Spirit of God or Holy Spirit, biblical verses

There are many types of spirit, and God is one of them. So if we refer to the spirit of God, we need to attach the word ‘holy’ to mean that the spirit we point out is God’s spirit. We can also capitalize the ‘S’ of the word ‘spirit’ to mean that this spirit is the supreme being. Thus the ‘holy spirit’, ‘spirit of God’, or ‘Spirit’ mentioned on this post are synonymous.
