The Holy Spirit is Not a Person Distinct From The Father

Evidently the holy spirit is not a 3rd person within the formula of a trinity; but rather is Godís own spiritóHis mind powerfully expressed into action as outreach to his creation. Since his exaltation to the right hand of God Jesus also expresses his spiritóhis mind into action as outreach to his disciples. Because holy spirit means Godís thoughts (and therefore also Jesusí thoughts)óHis mind projected to the receptive human mind, we can say that we have Godís spirit when we are considering the holy Scriptures i.e. when reading/studying them, discussing them or in living our lives in a way that is in harmony with them, including prayer. In this way we are empowered to do Godís will in its many aspects. Also the spirit of God has such power that it brought the universe into being, and will be the power (in Christís hands) that brings ďthe new heavens and earthĒ into being in the future.
