Gordon, I think it is quite a serious and divisive thing to say that the Holy Spirit is feminine. You can prove anything given enough data. Which language Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, Latin you decide to pick as your 'original' depends on what you wish to prove. The abstract nouns of war wisdom joy etc all have to be masc of fem in some languages, and it means nothing. Or are Bible truths to be put second in value to accidents of a language. God came before these languages.

Frances, You cannot compare the Living Holy Spirit SHKHINYAH to an inanimate object, as in your reference to the Romance Languages. In French and Spanish, yes, inanimate objects are, as you mentioned, masculine or feminine. But, much more so are PEOPLE, with these languages. The Holy Spirit is a PERSON. Just as GOD the Father YAHUVEH and the Son YAHUSHUA have a Gender, Masculine, so does the Holy Spirit, Feminine. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter, the One Who "comes along side", WOMANLY TRAITS.
---Gordon on 2/29/08


The fact that Spirit in Hebrew is feminine - some languages gender is totally meaningless like in French a chair may be feminine, but may just as easily have been masculine, or an apple etc. It is just pure chance, or the sound of the words. We live in modern times, and we call the Holy Spirit 'he' to agree with Jesus and God who are also 'he' and to avoid the confusion with the Queen of Heaven and other pagan ideas which make 90 per cent of faiths where they have a mother-father-divine son mythology.
---frances on 2/28/08


I can hardly believe some of these questions.God is male but not in the way we think of it.God is so far above us.HE is everything to every man and woman and no respector of race,sex,age or eveything else you can think of.HE is EVERYTHING to everyone who accepts HIS SON JESUS as Savior.
---shirley on 2/27/08


Duane Dudley Martin, The New Testament was translated from Latin and Greek into English. The Greek there has no feminine pronoun. There's only masculine or neuter. Any reference in the New Testament to the Holy Spirit will be "He" or "It". I do not know nor understand why GOD "allowed" this error, but, I know He has a reason. But, the Old Testament came from Hebrew, in which SPIRIT is Feminine, "Ruach". Proverbs 8 speaks of Wisdom, Who is the Holy Spirit.

Some BIBLICAL Scripture that says that Gods Holy Spirit is a female!

---j._nonymous on 2/26/08


Duane Dudley Martin, GOD set the man in the family to be the "head of the household". The husband/father is (usually) the MAIN provider for his wife (and children). So it is with the Holy Trinity. When GOD's Children need or want something, we go straight to the Father. We do so through the Name of the Son YAHUSHUA, and by the prompting of the Holy Spirit SHKHINYAH (Who is Female and Motherly). So, yes, we ask Our Father Who art in Heaven, but really, this Blog has posed an EXCELLENT question!
---Gordon on 2/26/08


"Our FATHER who art in Heaven"
Says it all!!!
"I sit at the right hand side of my FATHER"
Says it all!!!
This is truely a vain question....Useless!

.gordon, Scripture does not say God is three persons, on the contrary Scripture says that God is one: also Scripture does not say that God is female, but on the contrary Scripture says that God is HE.
---Eloy on 2/25/08


Eloy, Yes, There IS only One God. But, GOD is THREE PERSONS. And I'll just continue to talk in circles for as long as I have to, until the Truth becomes clear. GOD Himself declared, for HE designed Marriage, that, when a man and woman marry each other, GOD says that THE TWO BECOME ONE. But, they are STILL two separate indvidual persons. But, they are now ONE UNIT. That is how GOD is. Three Persons UNIFIED into ONE UNIT. Still ONE GOD, but, Three-in-ONE. READ I John 5:7 and John 1:1-14!!!

pt 2: Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, his Kingdom is from everlasting to everlasting, he alone is God. He is my living Rock and my fortress, my protector, my defender, my strong arm. He is the Chief Cornerstone, my anointing, my Messiah. He is my salvation, my sanctification, my baptism, my resurrection, my life, my Passover.

pt 3: Jesus is my Maker, my potter, my refiner. He is my glory, my light, my power, my grace, my forgiveness. He is my truth, my guide, my Mediator, my promise. He is my Shepherd, my living water, my bread of life, the sustainer and lover of my soul. He is the lifter up of mine head, my Counsellor, my Redeemer, my Immanuel.

Hallelujah! wonderful God my Lord, glory to the Lord! Thank you Jesus! He is my rest, my Sabbath, my peace. He is my Zion, my New Jerusalem, my sanctuary, my heaven, my paradise, my garden of delight.

pt 5: Jesus is the lily among thorns. He is the chiefest among ten thousand. His countenance as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. He calms the raging seas and wind and walks upon the water. He makes the blind to see, the cripple walk, the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, and the dead to rise again. This is my beloved, and this is my friend. Jesus is my song, my worship, my prayer, my Amen. He is my all and all.

Jesus is the Most High God, the First and the Last, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and Ending, which from being, and which to being, and which coming, the Almighty.

Eloy, Yes, GOD is ONE, but, He's Three-in-ONE. GOD consists of Three Persons. Father YAHUVEH (Male), Son YAHUSHUA (Male, in the Father's Image), and the Holy Spirit SHKHINYAH (Female, from Whose Image women were created, using one of Adam's ribs). These are THREE SEPARATE PERSONS WITHING THIS GODHEAD, SO THEY DO NOT ERADICATE EACH OTHER'S GENDER.

.gordon, there is no femaleness in the male, Just as neither is there likewise no maleness in the female. The seed is not the womb, nor is the womb the seed. That is what is called "confusing separate distinct elements together". The man is not the woman, nor the woman the man, neither is the celestial terrestrial, for the heavenly is heavenly and the earthy earthy, each creation distinct and separate from one another. The separate creations may compliment each other, but they are not the same

Eloy, GOD IS ONE. Yet, in that ONE are Three in ONE. The Father YAHUVEH, the Son YAHUSHUA and the Holy Spirit SHKHINYAH. Two of the Three are MALE, the Father and the Son. The Third Person, the Holy Spirit is FEMALE. By having the Holy Spirit be Female DOES NOT TAKE AWAY the Maleness of the Father and the Son. WE ARE MADE IN GOD'S IMAGE. Our male and femaleness are NOT just "ideas" GOD came up with. They Themselves are FIRSTLY MALE AND FEMALE and they then designed us, mankind, AFTER THEMSELVES!

GOD is ONE. Yet, GOD is Three in ONE. In this Triune Godhead are Three Distinct Persons. God the Father YAHUVEH (Male), God the Son YAHUSHUA (Male: same Image as the Father) and the Holy Spirit SHKHINYAH (Female). From which the human family is patterned after. We call GOD a He, even though the Holy Spirit is Female, because the Masculine is Dominate. In Spanish and French, everything is masculine or feminine. A group of girls is feminine (ellas, elles), but add ONE BOY, it becomes masculine (ellos, ils).

The word Spirit in Hebrew is Ruah. And in Greek it is Pneuma, meaning wind or breath. The Holy Ghost is not a woman. The Holy Ghost doesn't give birth to a person like a woman does. Being born again means to become saved, convert over to Christ. Renewing of the mind. When a person becomes saved, the Holy Ghost or Spirit is called the inner man.

God made the first man Adam after his own shape. So what part of Everlasting Father, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, and He, do you not understand?
---Eloy on 2/15/08


God made man, Adam, in his image first. Then afterward he made woman, his helpermate from the man's rib for a companion. Then after that, the man and woman joined together into one flesh and produced children, which grow up and turn into even more men or more women. But regardless whether one is a man, or a woman, or a child, we each are made in God's image. Actually, ownly the redeemed are truly made in God's image, and the unredeemed are made after the devil's image.
---Eloy on 2/15/08


God made man in his image, not woman. God is He, King, Lord, and not the weaker vessel as a she, queen, or lordess. "Man" in scripture usually refers literally to "man", but sometimes it refers to the whole human race, meaning, "human" or "mankind". Precisely you could say God created Man from the dust of the earth which looks like himself, and he created Woman from man's rib which does not look like himself (ie: anatomically, nor physically, nor pilously).
---Eloy on 2/15/08


All three manifestations in the Godhead are masculine, that is, the Father is masculine, the Son is masculine, and the Holy Spirit is masculine. Whenever the word "spirit" is used in scripture, the context of the word will define whether it is masculine or feminine. And whenever "Spirit" is used in reference to God, as in the Holy Spirit, it is always masculine, for God is masculine, he is the potentate, and Almighty.

since God is always masculine, as the Father, and the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, and also Jesus has a beard, thus the Holy Spirit or breath of God proceeding from him is masculine, just as my spirit and my breath and your spirit and breath is also masculine and not gender neutral.
---Eloy on 2/15/08


John 15:26 shows us the three seperate 'entities'. Jesus was a male. We know that the 'Father' was a male, what we don't know is what gender is the Holy Spirit. The old testament (Hebrew) word for 'spirit' are "Ruwach" and "Nshamah" which are female nouns. New testament Greek had no gender so 'it' was called 'he'. Jesus said to see the KOH we have to be born again by the Holy Spirit. Only women do the birth thing. Rev.12's Woman was in Heaven so this can ONLY be the Holy Spirit.

How can people read the bible and reply the way they did. In the old testament, Jesus was a spirit. He had not yet been born. After His birth, He had a body of flesh and bones. Even after His resurrection, which is the joining of our spirit and immortal body, His apostles felt the wounds. He said, "For a spirit hath not flesh and bones as ye see me have." Why does everyone deny the resurrection? To say God is a spirit denies the divinity of Jesus Christ. Is He not the Son of His Father.

2- Jesus Christ is a male and His Father in Heaven is male. Jesus knew He could not dwell forever on the Earth. He told His apostles He would send the Holy Ghost to teach truth as the bearer of all truth. The Holy Ghost is spirit and dwells in the hearts of the righteous. People often amaze me that they don't understand the simple truths of the gospel. They prefer to follow false teachings of men and deny the truths of Jesus Christ.

God IS Spirit. Adam was made in the image of God (Gen1:27)and was male & female. It was after the creation was finished that Adam received a body and Eve was taken from Adam as a separate being Ch.2:21-22. Then note that vs 24 states, "Therefore shall a man leave his father & mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Hmmm, father & mother, that would be God. Also explaining the "WE" of majesty.

God just IS. He is the Great I AM. He has revealed himself to us in terms we can somewhat understand - human terms for that is our frame of reference. To think that God is limited to the little box we put Him is foolhardy.
