The Holy Scriptures is written for the children of Yahweh NOT for the world in general. The worldly or Natural Man cannot understand the spirit of YHVH. The Holy Spirit (Ruach or Pneuma) of YHVH" cannot possibly understand them, and therefore, misinformation, lies, and deception abound.
The Holy Spirit is not a separate G-d that has the Mind of YHVH or a subdivision of YHVH with a separate G-d like identity, as in a Trinity as many Christains say G-d the Father, Son and the Holy spirit.. The Trinity is a concept deeply rooted in and born out of ancient pagan religions, and if you will just bear with me long enough to read this Spiritually Message, many of you will find a sudden chill come over you when the Truth finally makes itself known.
Isaiah 44:6,1 Corinthians 2:14-16
14 Now the natural man he who seeks the physical doesn't receive (understand) the (Spiritual) things of YHVH's Spirit, for they are foolishness to him (he rejects them), and (therefore) he can't know them, because they are Spiritually discerned.
15 But he who is Spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one.
16 "For who has known the mind of YHVH, that He (YHVH Himself) should instruct (Counsel) him?" But we have Messiah's mind (and Y'Shua has YHVH's mindset or Spirit).
Note: Y'Shua The Messiah has the mind or spirit of YHVH, but Y'Shua is not YHVH but rather a Spiritual image of YHVH Just the same as the Chosen Elect that is the Future Children of YHVH, this few will ultimately become perfected as and become images or reflections of YHVH's. Righteousness Seeking people of Yahweh.
Once a physical human being becomes a Spiritual image of YHVH's that is Righteousness (For we are made in the image of Yahweh). The Spiritual distinctions between that human being and YHVH will start to become blurred that is we will be like Yahshua but make no mistake, an extension of YHVH has or eventually will have all the power and authority of YHVH Himself; and can even be considered a Priest for YHVH. Therefore, YHVH will have many Preist (" I will make you a nation of priest or "Images of Himself")
The Children of YHVH," which includes, but is not limited to His 'First Born human Son,' Y'Shua. So how is it that YHVH has been limited to a mere Trinity by the "Traditional" or "Anti-Messiah churches," when there is but one G-d (YHVH) with a large extended family.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Yahweh, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, Holy, acceptable unto Yahweh, which is your reasonable service.
Note: It is very evident in the above verses that The Messiah is the extension of the (YHVH), but is not YHVH. Messiah Y'Shua has been given his authority, and dominion by Yahweh. In order to be Yahweh , one must be "Self-existent;" being immortal is not a sign of being a god, G-d or self-existence. Satan and all of the angels are immortal, and they are not G-d. Immortality is a gift from the One True Self-existent G-d, "Yahweh."
IF it were possible for YHVH, "The Self-existent One," to suddenly stop existing, then all of creation (both mortal and immortal) would suddenly stop existing too; therefore, there is only one Creator Yahweh. The very name of Yahwah means "The Self-existent One."
So what About The Holy Ghost?
All Biblical translations, that use the terminology "Holy ghost" rather than the "Holy Spirit", expose the fact that their translators (paganized / hellenized Jews) were either uninspired, prejudiced by vain human philosophies or deliberately tried to sabotage the Holy Scriptures (or a combination of the three).
Satan has used this pagan Universal Greco-Roman, ghost concept to the fullest to corrupt the true understanding of The Holy Spirit.The Greater part of the World including our modern society is superstitious. The mentality of superstitious people rests on Fear, the question is why?. This Fear is based on the Unknown, and the Unknown brings on the Inventions of Human thought; and thereby, resulting in Vain Human Philosophies and worship of false gods.
The Word of Yahweh says that Perfect Love Casts Out Fear (1 John 4:18). and , also, reveals to us, through the Holy Spirit, True Understanding. And it is this Revealed Knowledge that eliminates , fears, and the Spirit of Error (2 Corinthians 11:1-6; Daniel 2:21-22).
This knowledge is not normally revealed to the followers of pagan traditions ( false religions), for even if you were to personally reveal it to them, they would still not understand. Only YHVH, can bring about understanding in this way. As for the Holy ghost, the "Ghost" concept has been fully perverted, and exploited for traditional church population control and for monetary gain. Mankind, with Satan's help, exposes the impressionable minds of its' children to the false concepts of Ghosts at an early age with Halloween, movies like "Casper The Friendly Ghost", "Ghost Busters," and in movies that depict a false spirit world. to the real identity of The Holy Spirit. Additionally, the belief in Ghosts has helped Satan hinder the understanding of Life After Death, The Meaning of Life, The Understanding of Salvation, The True Knowledge of The Soul, and more. How can society worship YHVH in "Spirit and in Truth" if nobody knows what the Truth or The Spirit is? Today, we have whole religions based on the False Spirit World. Yes, Spiritualism is alive and well in both your neighborhood and on the Internet.
What Is The Origin Of The Biblical Word, Spirit?
According to Strongs Concordance (Greek, #4151), whenever the word Holy and the word ghost, spirit or Spirit of YHVH appear in the New Testament, it is translated from the Greek word "Pneuma", and either preceded by the word Holy, G-d or similar descriptive identifier. However, pneuma can be used with or without the "Holy" description. Therefore "Pneuma" is not Holy by nature. The following words are used to define the word Pneuma, and at first glance there appears to be a discrepancy between the various definitions.
Definitions of the "Natural" Pneuma
Breath," "wind" or "A current of air".
Analytically or figuratively speaking: a spirit or attitude.
Humanly speaking: the Rational Soul or a living and thinking person.
By implication: Mental Disposition, vital principle.
Superhuman: an angel or demon with the attitude of Good or Evil.
Personal Pronoun: Which is only implied and refers to someone(male or female)with both "Breath"(life) and "Mental Disposition" (Character or Attitude; either good or evil)
Definitions of The "Holy" Pneuma
The same as the "Natural Pneuma", but with "qualifiers"
to indicate whether "Sacred, Holy or Righteous"
"Holy Breath," "Holy Wind" or "A Holy Current of Air" suggesting invisible fluid like movement similar to a flow of energy, but not suggesting personification: Actually, it is much more than "movement," as we shall see.
Analytically or figuratively: a Sacred Spirit or Holy attitude (usually associated with feminine mental atributes, but not a female, such as nurturing, comforting, instructing, giving life through birth).
Humanly speaking:A person who has received YHVH's Holy Rational Character or "The Righteousness Seeking Mindset of YHVH."
By implication: A Holy ,Righteous or Sacred Mentality.
Superhuman: the Righteous Character of YHVH, His Holy Angels or the resurrected Messiah as in being "Like Minded".
Divine: The Holy, Righteousor Sacred Spirit of YHVH or Messiah or The Children of YHVH "Like Mindedness" OR of the same mentality as YHVH.
Personal Pronoun: Which is implied, as a trait only, and refers to a mortal or immortal with the Sacred 'Life Giving' "Breath" or a Righteous "Mental Disposition."
Nowhere, in any Greek or Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible, are the words Holy Spirit or simply Spirit implied to be or defined as a ghost as we today think of a ghost (an invisible being or near invisible soul of a dead being). If Anything, the implications, when taken collectively, always indicate that the Holy Spirit is the Controlling Righteous Quality or Character Of The Mind Of YHVH (with traits that are sometimes feminine and sometimes masculine), and not a personification (as Satan, human nature or evil would have you to believe of a Trinity).

Note:IF you go to your very own dictionary and look up the words "psyche" and "Psyche" you will find the following information:
psy-che (si´ke), noun (lower case 'p')
The soul or spirit, as distinguished from the body.
The mind functioning as the center of thought, feeling, and behavior; and consciously or unconsciously adjusting and relating the body to its social and physical environment. [Latin from Greek psukhe for BREATH, LIFE, soul].
Psy-che (si´ke), noun (upper case 'P')
Classical Mythology (pagan) A maiden loved by Eros and united with him after Aphrodite's jealousy was overcome; who became THE PERSONIFICATION of
OKAY, so here we have the pagan thoughts behind "The Personification of the Soul" of the Latin word "psyche" and its meaning of BREATH, LIFE, soul. IF we look up the Greek "pneuma" we will see that its meaning is also BREATH, SPIRIT, MENTALITY, CHARACTER (same for the Hebrew "RUACH"). The connection between human spirit and Holy Spirit is obviously simple to make, as there is no separate word anywhere that represents a natural spirit, and a different word that represents YHVH's Spirit, and as such, a term that represents Holy or Sacred must be used in conjunction with 'Spirit' to make a distinction. THUS, we can easily see the connection of the Personification of the mental psyche as "Psyche" OR the pagan thought behind the personification of YHVH's "Holy Spirit," as in the third person of the pagan "TRINITY."
Note: This train of thought will bring me to my next perspective on the psyche, as defined as a conscious or unconscious mental force. And I see the psyche as the persuasive force that HaSatan (source of human nature) uses to influence and distort human thought. I, also, see that one of HaSatan's greatest methods of influence is "Vanity," (the desire to be special). I even find myself wrestling with this particular mode of influence, afterall, seeking to be special to YHVH is very important to those that worship Him. The difficulty comes when vanity exceeds humility, thus the need for personal humility that is not feigned, but truly a part of the psyche (spirit), therefore the NEED of an outward Holy Spirit of Selfless Love directed towards others.
BEWARE ! HaSatan (unrighteous source of human nature) will use our desire to be special against us, and will use dreams, music, and mystical events with no apparent logical explanation to create a sense of SELF-importance within our psyche (human spirit or nature).
However, none of this is to say that there is no Holy Spirit (Nature of YHVH), because our Creator is and has a Holy, Righteous, and Loving Spirit. And it is His Spirit (nature) that determines how He and His Chosen Few (Future Children) utilizes His powers; and one of those powers is the power of Spiritual Discernment, which gives Righteousness Seekers the ability to understand Scripture (1 Cor 2:14-16, and even corrupted Scripture).
But how can a "Breath," Holy or otherwise, be related to a "Rational Attribute of the Mind?"
The "Holy Spirit" has One Identity attached to it, and that is YHVH, "The Father." Messiah Y'Shua, the First human to become a Spiritually Begotten Son of YHVH has the very same Attitude, Character, Will, Mindset, Reasoning, and Sacred Mentality as YHVH, but Y'Shua is not YHVH. Y'Shua and YHVH are of "Like Mind" and therefore have "Like Spirits," because "Y'Shua trusts in YHVH." It is this "trust" that ultimately leads to finding favor (Grace) and salvation with YHVH. All of YHVH's future children have received the same Righteousness Seeking Nature.
There is No Trinity between Three Separate Identities or Three Separate G-ds or even a "Combination" G-d. Only YHVH, "The Father", and The Messiah have proper names. The "Holy Spirit" has no name nor is Holy Spirit a name, but is a descriptive attribute of the power of YHVH's Mind! Whenever, Holy Scripture uses phrases like,"My Father and I are One," it is strictly referring to the fact that YHVH and Y'Shua have the very same Holy Mental Attributes and are "As One" mentally (spiritually) speaking. Because being "As One" is a "Marriage" or a "Spiritual Union" between "Like Minded" Believers and The Eternal Father. YHVH calls this "Marriage" of The Minds a "Covenant of Love" that exists between a True Believer (obedient follower) and Himself. This "Like Minded Covenant of Love" is demonstrated by following The Messiah's example of "Self-sacrifice." See:"The Sacrifice of Messiah " As "Followers," we choose to obey YHVH through the desire of our hearts (Love). No True Believer can simply say "I Believe" and still continue to follow their old natural ways. This is the major difference between a True Believer (follower of Messiah Y'Shua), and a 'So Called' believer or follower of the Anti-Messiah!
1 Corinthians 2:12-16
12 But we (true believers) received, not just the spirit (pneuma or ruwach) of the (natural) world, but also, the Spirit (Righteousness Seeking Character or Holy Pneuma) which is from YHVH, that we might know (discern) the things (truths) that were freely given to us by YHVH (a power of discernment).
13 Which things (truths), also, we speak, (of man) which man's wisdom teaches (schools), but which the Holy Spirit(Mind Of YHVH)Teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things (comparing ourselves to YHVH, whom we seek to emulate in perfection).
14 Now the natural man doesn't receive the things (truths) of YHVH's Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can't know them, because they are spiritually discerned (Through YHVH's imparted Wisdom).
15 But he who is spiritual discerns all things (truths & lies), and he himself is judged by no one (Not even YHVH will judge him).
16 (paraphrased) "For who has known the Mind of YHVH, that He (YHVH) should instruct him?" But we have YHVH's Mind (The Holy Spirit or the nurturing mental attributes of YHVH) which is, also, in Messiah.
Note:Neither can the natural man teach Spiritual Truth in seminaries or universities. YHVH (and YHVH alone) teaches His "Chosen Few" through His Holy Spirit !
1 Samuel 2:35 (a Prophecy of Y'Shua, our High Priest)
2 I will raise (not I have already raised) me up a Faithful Priest, that shall do according to that which is in My Heart (Emotion, Creativity, birth, Feminine traits) and in my Mind (Reasoning, Leadership, Male traits): and I (YHVH)will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before (at the Head of) my anointed(chosen children) forever.
The First Testament of YHVH (The Tanakh)
10 Create in me a clean heart, YHVH. Renew a Righteous Spirit(Strong's, Hebrew #7307, Ruwach or Holy Mentality) within me.
11 Don't throw me away(a passionate plea) from your presence. Don't take (another passionate plea) your Holy Spirit (Holy and Loving Character) from me.
12 Restore to me the joy(passionate emotion) of your salvation. Uphold me with a willing Spirit(mind-set of desire).
Isaiah 11:1-2(A Prophecy of Y'Shua)
1 There shall come forth a shoot out of the stock (root or seed) of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear (Spiritual) fruit (which shall ultimately result in the begetting of The Children of YHVH).
2 The Spirit of YHVH(Holy Ruwach or Holy Pneuma) shall rest on him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear (Loving Respect) of YHVH.
Note: This is the most obvious definition of the Holy Spirit I have found in the First (Older) Testament, because this prophecy is of (Messiah) Y'Shua and the Holy Spirit (Mentality or Nature) that will dwell in him. It is quite obvious that this Holy Spirit is a mental attitude, nature, character or "Mind Set," and not an imaginary third god as in the pagan Trinity (Isaiah 63:8-11)
So What About "The Breath?"
The Creator (1 Corinthians 12:18) always uses His physical creation to explain Spiritual Truth (Romans 1:20). For YHVH reveals Himself through the nature of His creations, so that non-believers will be without excuse. Additionally, YHVH has stated in His Holy Scripture that we are one body, but many members.
So with this in mind
"What is the one functioning vital organ (member) of the natural physical body that unites all of the other organs of the body together so that they can function as one body (An Assembly) made up of many members?"
Answer:The physical Central Nervous System with the Main Control Center being "The Mind," "Pneuma," or "Ruwach."
And, "What is the one functioning vital attribute of the Spiritual Body(Assembly) that unites all of the individual members of YHVH's family together into one "Like Minded" Spiritual Body so that they, being many with various Spiritual Gifts,can function together "As One?"
Answer: The Holy Spirit with the Main Control Center being "The Righteousness Seeking Mind-Set of YHVH," "Holy Pneuma," or "Holy Ruwach."
Now, "What is the one vital attribute that has the power to impart 'Eternal Life' to a physical (mortal) True Believer?"
Answer:The Holy Spirit , "Holy Pneuma," or "Ruwach Qodesh" (Strong's H6944, Qodesh means Sacred ).
So What about the "Breath?"
What is the one vital elementinnature necessary to impart temporaryphysical life to YHVH's Physical Creatures, both man and animals?
Answer:The "Breath of Life" or the"Pneuma or Ruwach." The physical "Breath of Life" is the temporary energy from YHVH that is not Holy, but is necessary to begin the process of temporary physical life. It is this natural "Breath" that works with the "Mind and nervous system" (through the blood) that actually imparts temporary physical life; Not only is The Life in The Blood, The Breath IS The Life that is in The Blood. Some have even referred to this energy as the "Spark" of life, and when we die physically it is this natural temporary "breath" or "spark" or "natural pneuma" that is lost. This is not to say, that YHVH forgets those that don't have the Holy Pneuma; at least not before The Great White Throne Judgement. However, the "Holy Spirit," "Holy Pneuma" or "Sacred Breath of Life" which is spiritual and resides as a permanent part of YHVH Himself is never lost. YHVH never forgets "His Chosen Few" and retains their memory in His Holy Pneuma or Sacred Ruwach forever; and when the time of The First Resurrection comes, YHVH Remembers Them. This Spiritual Memory is a Spiritual Mental Attribute of the Mind of YHVH. Now that is an awesome image of YHVH's Sacred Spirit! (Judges 16:28) 28 Samson called to YHVH, and said, Lord YHVH, remember me, Please, and strengthen me, Please, only this once, YHVH, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.
Nehemiah 13:14, Job 14:13"Oh that you would hide me in Sheol (grave), That you would keep me secret, until your wrath is past, That you would appoint me a set time, and remember me (resurrect me from Sheol)!
Psalms 25:7,Psalms 106:4,Jeremiah 15:15,Luke 23
3 Y'Shua answered him, "Most assuredly, I tell you, unless one is born(from a Spiritual Womb) anew (again), he can't see the kingdom of YHVH."
4 Nicodemus said to him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb, and be born?" (same concept as Job 1:21-22, above)
5 Y'Shua answered, "Most assuredly I tell you, unless one is born of water (physical womb) and the (Holy)Spirit(Spiritual Womb), he can't enter into the kingdom of YHVH!
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Don't marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born anew.'
8 The wind blows(Holy Pneuma or "Ruwach Qodesh;" Strong's H6944, Qodesh is Sacred) where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't understand where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the (Holy or Righteousness Seeking) Spirit (Spiritual Womb)."
But Pneuma is Greek, What about the Hebrew?
Strongs, #5397, Neshamah, vital breath, spirit or intellect
There exist another perspective on the Natural (mortal) "Breath of Life". Seeing that "pneuma" is a natural breath in Greek, then the natural pneuma in Greek would be the equivalent to "Neshamah" in Hebrew. While the "Holy Pneuma" in Greek would be the equivalent to "Ruach Qodesh" (Strong's H6944, Qodesh is Sacred ) in Hebrew.
7 (YHVH) G-d formed man from the dust (elements) of the ground (physical), and breathed into his nostrils the "Breath of life" ("neshamah"); and man became a (physical and mortal) living (thinking) soul. See:Genesis 6:17-18,Genesis 7:13-15,Revelation 11:7-12, John 20:21-22
Note: The act of Breathing on repentant believers is not the only way to psychologically transfer YHVH's Holy Pneuma (Righteousness Seeking mentality or character) to other "True Believers"; The Apostles "Laid Hands" on them, which was immediately sensed, through touch, by the repentant believer's nervous system.
note: that the physical act of breathing or touching cannot transfer YHVH's "Righteousness Seeking" mindset (Spirit) upon anyone that doesn't already reject "Self" as the center of their universe. Only the rejection of "Self Will" can cause one to be mentally prepared to accept the responsibility of their sacred duty. And while the physical act of breathing on a new convert or the laying on of hands will often spark the Spirit into action. Quite often only the voice of Truth is enough to initiate the Righteousness seeking mentality of YHVH into those who have "Ear to Hear and Eyes to See.
I can tell you now, without any reservation, that any person, any church or any organization, that teaches the pagan (Babylonian) Greco-Roman "Trinity" doctrine is not of YHVH. It doesn't matter how fervently they confess or might actually try to prove that they are of YHVH. It is not their words that expose them for whom they are, but the simple fact that they do not worship YHVH in both "Spirit and Truth" that exposes them as the self-seeking liars that they are.
- It seems that everyone wants Salvation, but almost no one wants to become a "New Man."
- It seems that everyone wants Salvation, but almost no one wants to "Obey YHVH's Commandments."
- It seems that everyone wants Salvation, but almost no one wants to give up their popular "Life Style."
- It seems that everyone wants Salvation, but almost no one wants to "Be called a Religious Fanatic" or "Extremist."
- It seems that everyone wants Salvation, but almost no one wants to give up "False Pagan Traditions," such as, catholic Xmas, Easter, Haloween, etc. .
- It seems that everyone wants Salvation, but almost no one wants to become "Righteous" or "Like YHVH," as a matter of fact, some will tell you that you cannot actually become "Righteous", but YHVH says otherwise.
23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the True Worshippers (The Righteousness seekers)will worship the Father in (both) Spirit and Truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.
24 YHVH is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in bothSpirit and Truth."
Psalms 1:1-6, Matthew 13:47-50
47 "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet, that was cast into the sea, and gathered some fish of every kind,
48 which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach. They sat down, and gathered the good into containers, but the bad they threw away.
49 So will it be in the end of the world. The angels will come forth, and separate the wicked from among the righteous (The Righteous Do Exist),
50 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth."
Galatians 4:16 So then, have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
