New Definition of Soul – The soul is the result of our mind and heart working together, our inner self. It is the result of our memories and feelings. We feel our soul because of brain-whole body communication.
Yes, the human heart, in addition to its other functions, actually possesses a heart-brain composed of about 40,000 neurons that can sense, feel, learn and remember. The heart brain sends messages to the head brain about how the body feels and more.
There are many things happening at once between our brain and our mind while at the same time the neurons in our heart-brain are communicating with our brain and our mind.
Psalms 103:1 [A Psalm] of David. Bless Yahavah, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit with no identity or id. The Holy Spirit is located between the brain and the mind but does not touch the body. It actuates the mind. It makes us complete as a created child of God as was originally intended.
The Holy Spirit is not the same as God’s actual presence when we commune or communicate with Him by prayer.
The mind of the Spirit (Romans 8:27) is a creation of God that makes the Holy Spirit a helper. The mind of the Spirit performs many functions, it can pray for us when we don’t know what to pray, translating our thoughts and emotions.
The mind of the Spirit is not responsive to God during private or intimate things governed by body signals. And so we have complete privacy. This is how God designed it, so we will not feel awkward about it.
You imagine the Holy Spirit is a ghost or something similar, but it is not. It is not physical, it is spiritual. It actuates the mind and causes us to be able to do things that are normally impossible without it, as long it is according to God’s will.
In the Bible, when it is God’s will, it can produce super strength, stamina, and ability. Holy Spirit is actually doing the lifting or causing the great speed when God’s power backs it.
Most importantly, we are able to understand God’s thoughts and feelings and are able to commune with Him.
When the Bible says they were one and all filled with the Holy Spirit it means “supplied with a full complement”. Merriam-Webster.com definition of “filled”.
When The Holy Spirit is referred to as He or Him, this is called personification. The Holy Spirit is a Creation of God, it is not a person. However, it is responsive to God, if you lie to The Holy Spirit, you are lying to God.
Acts 5:3, 4, “why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit? . . . You have not lied to men but to God‘”
In the same way if you grieve the Holy Spirit you are grieving Him that sent it.
The Holy Spirit is always sent, as demonstrated by The Holy Spirit appearing in bodily form as a dove at Yeshua’s baptism. The Holy Spirit is not umbilical. Only the Father sends the Holy Spirit (John 14:26).
When a person is ready, they will except Yahavah as Our God and Our Father and they will accept that Yeshua the Messiah is the Son of God and that the Holy Spirit is the Helper created by God and that it is not a person.
Pray for The Holy Spirit. It will help you understand everything you are learning. If you are understanding and believing everything already, then God has given it to you.
John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, ~ESV
You only receive The Holy Spirit once and it will be with you forever.
The Operation of The Holy Spirit
God’s Spirit is His life, The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit within the mind of the Spirit. Thus our mind is actuated by God’s Spirit as the mind of the Spirit works along with our mind, affecting our soul. And we are made holy because of God’s Spirit operating upon us.
God’s “power” is His infinite Holy Spirit. God’s infinite Spirit makes anything possible for Him and for us, if it is His will. He can add the power of His Spirit to the Holy Spirit we have.
Romans 15:13,19 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit . . . Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.” ~King James Version
For example, this is how Yeshua was able to heal people.
Luke 5:17 One day He was teaching, and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the Law sitting there who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea, and from Jerusalem; and the power of Yahavah was present for Him to perform healing. ~NASB
Luke 6:19 And all the people were trying to touch Him, because power was coming from Him and healing them all. ~NASB
God wanted the people to recognize Yeshua as The Messiah. Yeshua was fully aware of the presence of God’s power.
Now you know about God’s power and the Holy Spirit.
