The fullness of Father's Spirit abode with Him from birth. As with John, It was Father's Spirit that empowered Jesus to grow strong in spirit and wisdom.
However, It wasn't until age thirty that He was conformationally inspired and set apart for the fulfillment of His purposed sojourn on earth, as Saviour of mankind.
It was at this time that His mind was fully opened to the undeniable realization that "The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed." It was then that "The Spirit of the LORD 'rested' upon Him."

Miracles were not the only manifestation of the Holy Spirit being with Jesus. Where did he, as a 12 year old boy, get all the knowledge He was discussing with the rabbis and wise men at the temple? I believe the Spirit was with Him then.

God was with His Son: Before conception, before His birth, And during His entire short life on this earth. By God's spirit Jesus was raised from the dead and now sits at the right hand side of the Father. How could Jesus be without the Holy Spirit when He is God, I have heard His voice, I have seen Jesus, He is God. That same power saved me and raised me out from among the dead. By the way if you are lost, you are walking around>> DEAD.

To all of you that said that Christ had the Holy Ghost at birth, I have to say AMEN!
1 john 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
At Christ's baptism the Holy Ghost was seen and God was heard. This clearly teaches the trinity. Christ was always God. He is the same yesterday (before the begining of time) today, and forever.
Lord bless each of you.

Cults fail to recognize that The Son of God, Father and Holy Spirit are three different Persons. It is because of their training that God is strictly singular. In their attempt to uphold Monotheism they cannot receive the teaching of God's nature being triune, they then lose The Son of God as a distinct Person, The Father as a distinct Person and The Holy Spirit as a district Person.
Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever. Jesus Christ is not the Holy Spirit.

Jesus did not receive the Holy Spirit at his baptism. That would've been impossible since Jesus himself was the Holy Spirit made flesh. It is clearly stated why the Holy Spirit, in the form of a dove lit on Jesus at his baptism. It was for proof to John of who he was.

Jesus performed no miracles untill "after" He recieved Holy Spirit,some 30 years!
---1st_cliff on 9/28/07|
Just because we see the Spirit descending on that moment of His baptism doesn't mean it didn't happen on a regular basis. It doesn't say that was the first or only time. Jesus walked in perfect harmony with the Father and the Spirit.

Jesus is the second Person of the Trinity, fully God and fully human; the others being God the Father, and God, Holy Spirit.
Each are eternally co-existent and equal but having different offices.
Saying differently is flat-out wrong, and unscriptural

Jesus did not become God in the flesh at 30 years of age. God is eternal, from everlasting to everlasting, and Jesus existed even before he himself created the heavens and the earth. Please read Genesis 1:26; Psalm 45:6; Isaiah 43:11; Matthew 1:18; 22:41-46; John 1:1-3,14; 8:57,58; 17:5; I John 5:20; Jude 25.

Having the Holy Spirit or being baptized by the Holy Spirit are 2 different things. Jesus had the Holy Spirit all His life but he was baptized by the Holy Spirit when He was baptized by water. It was after this that He began His ministry.

contiune; Jesus came back as the Holy Ghost Can you see Jesus in the flesh trying to give us his spirte? That one of the reason he had to die was to save us and put his spirit in us as we ask his forgiveness of our sins he fills us with his sprit and that is the evedince he takes over and he prays threw us in tongues. I would be very careful about talking about people praying in tongues.. it is a fearfull thing to fall in the hands of a living GOD

Jesus was the Holy Ghost

To-a servant; your answer is correct in my eyes!
---mima on 1/16/06|
Lk 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, so He had the Holy Spirit at conception. Jesus could not be called "that holy thing" without having the Holy Spirit.
---a_servant on 1/14/06|
Jesus didn't recieve the Holy Spirit (Ghost) until after he was baptised. Because the bible tells us that Jesus saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and fell upon Jesus.
---Rebecca_D on 1/13/06|
cliff. Can we be sure He never had the Holy Spirit beofre His baptism? Look at Luke 2:27. Jesus came in the Spirit into the temple. He was 12. Luke 2:40. He waxed strong in the Spirit and was filled with wisdom and the grace of God was upon Him. I don't think we have proof that Jesus never had the Spirit of God until He was 30.
