THE USES OF THE WORD..RUACH… (SPIRIT)

John 3:8… ‘The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes, so is everyone who is born of the spirit’…

Acts 2:2…COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT…And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing Mighty Wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting…

Then… there appeared to them divided tongues, as of Fire, and one sat upon each of them… and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the spirit gave them utterance…

Galatians 5: 16-17…WALKING IN THE SPIRIT….I say then; Walk in the Spirit… and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh…For the flesh lusts against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish… But if you are led by the spirit… you are not under the law…

Comment- MY EXPERIENCE…I noticed that prior to my salvation experience… things seemed to go along swimmingly… aware that there was a spiritual side to things… but because scales were on my eyes…not really concerned with spiritual things… After my salvation experience… scales removed from my eyes… ears opened… realised that there is a God…THAT HE SPEAKS TO ME…THROUGH HIS WORD… ( internal Witness)… although possible….”NEVER AN AUDIBLE VOICE”…JOY BEHAR…(IGNORANT)

NOTE: My opinion is we will never be totally able to walk…”IN THE SPIRIT”… we try to…we strive to.. my experience has been a constant battle… I also believe that if we don’t have some battles.. something may be wrong… if we don’t have convictions of both righteousness and sin…. something may be wrong…

The word….RUACH… occurs 389 times in the Hebrew Old Testament… a deep study reveals the word Ruach is rendered SPIRIT.. in 237 Passages… no other word is rendered SPIRIT… except….n shamah… ( I don’t have Hebrew symbols to write it correctly… there should be a little e right after an above the n)…

THE HOLY SPIRIT….THIRD PERSON OF THE TRINITY…

GOD… as being invisible…” The Spirit of Jehovah”…. is Jehovah himself… in his manifestation of invisible power…

THE INVISIBLE DIVINE POWER MANIFESTING ITSELF…IN CREATION…GENESIS 1…IN GIVING LIFE….EZEKIEL 37: 14…IN EXECUTING JUDGEMENT….”BLAST”…EXODUS 15:8….”BREATH”…2 SAMUEL 22:16…

INVISIBLE ” Power from on High”… manifesting itself as divine power…. in giving spiritual gifts… spoken of as COMING UPON… CLOTHING… FALLING ON.. and BEING POURED OUT… rendered…SPIRIT…….Frank
