The holy spirit is a energy.. a framework.. the Christian version of it is just misunderstood..

Yah, sorry.. I work with the holy spirit.. but I don't know how to explain it to you.. its honestly like asking Einstein to explain "the theory of relativity" all you'd say afterword is huh..?

What I would suggest is not bother about it.. it don't matter what it is

hmm.. I think this has too many bible passages in it

But this isn't bad..? maybe it'll help..?

The Holy Spirit and You

Also here is a quote from our school about the holy spirit.. who again "we work with" but I don't think that will explain it..

Quote:
A long, long time ago the Creator wished to know itself more fully. So Creator reached into itself and created many new aspects of Itself. Aspects that you know as the Holy Spirit, the I AM Presence, the Christed Light and much, much more.

Just answering the OP here, and not examining all of the replies. Holy Spirit is an Epithet of the ONLY TRUE GOD, the ETERNAL SPIRIT. Holy indicate his character, or behavior, and Spirit indicate his NATURE. for he is a Holy God. "be ye holy for I AM Holy", saith the Lord. and he is a Spirit, John 4:24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth".

and if you, the (spirit), is in him, and he in you, then a son. hence the G5481 χαρακτήρ charakter, or character, or the characteristics of him, (God), see,G5207, huios. “Son”, because "Son" indicate like God because you're born of HIM and have his characteristics, and his behavior, meaning, (we should act a certain way, "holy"). because, before, we were alienated from God, walked in the flesh, or the carnal, no knowledge of him. Isaiah 55:9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts".


May God bless.

Correct, John 3:8 "The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit". here Wind, and Spirt is G4151 πνεῦμα pneuma (pnyoo`-mah). 1. a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze. 2. (by analogy or figuratively) a spirit. 3. (humanly) the rational soul

If you checked the verses immediately prior, John was contrasting "born of flesh" and "born of the 'wind.'" Giving it just a little bit of thought you should be able to see that either "wind" is metaphor for "spirit" or spirit is an alternate meaning of the Greek word commonly translated "wind." Very few people could claim to be born of moving air.
