Holy Spirit 101 (Ruach ha’Qodesh)

by John and Ruth Greene

religious lightRighteousness in life is walking with the Almighty [YHWH] alone. (Galatians 5:4-5) This is not about a moral or ethical system of the world that seems to be ‘Bible-based.’ (1 John 2:17, 3:7, 18, 4:13, 5:12; Galatians 3:29; Genesis 15:6; “Pursue Righteousness“; “Seeking a New Spirit“; “A Hidden Lifestyle Message from Messiah“; “The Parthenon & the Spirit of Humanism“)

“I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim. ” – Romans 12:1-2, ISR98

“… if indeed you have tasted that the Master is good. Drawing near to Him, a living Stone – rejected indeed by men, but chosen by Elohim and precious – you also, as living stones, are being built up, a spiritual house, a set-apart priesthood, to offer up spiritual slaughter offerings acceptable to Elohim through Yahshua Messiah. ” – 1 Peter 2:3-5, ISR98

“Therefore if any man be in the Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” – 2 Corinthians 5:15-17, ISR98

 “Do all matters without grumblings and disputings, in order that you be blameless and faultless, children of Elohim without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding on to the Word of life…” – Philippians 2:14-16, ISR98

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…” – Matthew 25:30-35, NKJV

“Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature.” – 1 Corinthians 14:20, NKJV

“For you will bless the righteous. YHWH, you will surround him with favor as with a shield.” – Psalm 5:12, NHEBYE

“Beloved ones, if our heart does not condemn us, we have boldness toward Elohim [YHWH]. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we guard His commands and do what is pleasing in His sight. And this is His command, that we should believe in the Name of His Son Yahshua Messiah and love one another, as He gave us command. And the one guarding His commands stays in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He stays in us, by the Spirit which He gave us.” – 1 John 3:21-24, ISR98

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” – James 1:22-25, NKJV

dusty-Bible-readStart to learn about the character of YHWH and how to adjust your behaviors as measured by sin, the measuring stick of scripture laid before mankind. This means circumcision of the heart as you come to fully realize the grace of YHWH through trust in Him and His provision. This provision is for all that live in the Holy Spirit, having a pure heart and separated or set apart to Elohim [YHWH]. (Galatians 5:6, 6:15; 1 John 1:5, 3:5-9; 1 Peter 1:16; 2 Peter 3:9; Romans 2:25-29; Philippians 3:3; 1 Corinthians 7:19; Psalm 30:5; Jeremiah 4:4; Deuteronomy 10:16, 30:6; “The Bible & Higher Authority“; “YHWH’s Promise to His Elect“)

“You are of Elohim, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of Elohim – the one knowing Elohim hears us. He who is not of Elohim does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of the Truth and the spirit of the delusion. Beloved ones, let us love one another, because love is of Elohim, and everyone who loves has been born of Elohim, and knows Elohim. The one who does not love does not know Elohim, for Elohim is love.” – 1 John 4:4-8, ISR98

 “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” – James 4:17, NKJV

“Or do you not know that your body is the Dwelling Place of the Set-apart Spirit [Holy Spirit] who is in you, which you have from Elohim, and you are not your own? For you were bought with a price, therefore esteem Elohim in your body and in your spirit, which are of Elohim.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, ISR98

“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ’But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another! I say then: ‘Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.’” – Galatians 5:13-16, NKJV

“In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah” – Colossians 2:11, ISR98

free from captivityFreedom in the Messiah requires the Holy Spirit, set apart from the world [kosmos], not to be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. This means leaving the mindset of the world and strongholds of the past. (Galatians 5:1-5, 13; James 1:13-14; 1 Corinthians 10:13: “Woes of the Hypocrites“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “Healing Wounds That People Can’t See“; “The Road to Enslavement“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“)

“Yahshua [Jesus] answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is unable to enter into the reign of Elohim. That which has been born of the flesh is flesh, and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You have to be born from above.’ The Spirit breathes where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” – John 3:5-8, ISR98

“But when the kindness and the love of Elohim our Saviour toward man appeared, He saved us, not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His compassion, through the washing of rebirth, and renewal by the Set-apart Spirit, which He poured out on us richly through Yahshua Messiah our Saviour, that having been declared right by His favour we should become heirs according to the expectation of everlasting life. Trustworthy is the word, and in this regard I wish you to strongly affirm, that those who have believed in Elohim should keep their minds on maintaining good works. This is good and profitable to men.” – Titus 3:4-8, ISR98

“Then said Yahshua to those Jews which believed on him, ‘If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’ They answered him, ‘We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?’ Yahshua answered them, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.’” – John 8:31-36, WoY

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Elohim to the pulling down of strongholds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of Elohim, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Messiah” – 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, WoY

spiritual maturityYou are no longer looked on as the natural man of the world when you are a new creation of YHWH’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit. (John 3:12; Colossians 3:9-11; Romans 8:2, 6-8; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 4:18; “The Struggle for Purity of Heart“; “Bible: Wisdsom 101“; “Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“; “The Wheels of Ezekiel“; “The Unpardonable Sin“)

“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.” – Matthew 12:31-33, NKJV

“ So from now onwards we know no one according to the flesh. And if we have known Messiah according to the flesh, yet now we no longer know Him thus. Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a renewed creature – the old matters have passed away, see, all matters have become renewed! And all matters are from Elohim, who has restored us to favor with Himself through Yahshua Messiah, and has given us the service of restoration to favor” – 2 Corinthians 5:16-18, ISR98

“…if indeed you have heard Him and were taught by Him, as truth is in Yahshua [Jesus]: that you put off – with regard to your former way of life – the old man, being corrupted according to the desires of the deceit, and to be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the renewed man which was created according to Elohim, in righteousness and set-apartness of the truth.” – Ephesians 4:21-24, ISR98

love of wealth - mammonA Christian without the Holy Spirit is no better off than the world. The world of man without Messiah is doomed. (Galatians 2:20, 5:19-21, 26; 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12; 1 Peter 3:14; Ephesians 1:18-20; Hebrews 10:20; Romans 6:11; Jude 1:20; “Why Are the Nations Messed Up?“; “Reality of the Antichrist“; “Leaders of Men Plot Against Christian Infidels“; “Trust YHWH, Not World Leaders – Christians and the World of Politics“; “A Warning to Disciples“; “Millenniums of Human Exploitation“)

“…that the Elohim of our Master Yahshua Messiah, the Father of esteem, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, so that you know what is the expectation of His calling, and what are the riches of the esteem of His inheritance in the set-apart ones” – Ephesians 1:18, ISR98

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of Elohim, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it shall be given to him. But he should ask in belief, not doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For that man should not think that he shall receive whatever from the Master – he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” – James 1:5-8, ISR98

“Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded!” – James 4:8, ISR98

“Now YHWH is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of YHWH is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of YHWH, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of YHWH.” – 2 Corinthians 3:17-18, RNKJV

new man in Christ bookYou continue to be justified through trust, loving the ways of the Most High YHWH alone, fully believing in the redeeming provision of Yahshua [Jesus] your Messiah. The old man and the old law are not trust through YHWH’s righteousness. Your full understanding of this is very important. It is only through the righteous standards and grace of YHWH that anyone can be saved. Trusting in YHWH through love is what counts, refusing to be driven back (anakopto) by Satan and the world. (Matthew 26:41; Mark 14:38; Galatians 4:15, 5:7; 1 Corinthians 9:24-26; Romans 6:11, 12:1-2; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 4:12; 1 John 2:16; “YHWH’s Faithful: Victory in Spiritual Battle“; “How YHWH Marks His People“; “Listening & Doing as a Disciple“)

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is YHWH which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” – Philippians 2:12-13, RNKJV

“Blessed is the man who does endure trial, for when he has been proved, he shall receive the crown of life which the Master has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is enticed, ‘I am enticed by Elohim,’ for Elohim is not enticed by evil matters, and He entices no one. But each one is enticed when he is drawn away by his own desires and trapped. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin. And sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death. Do not go astray, my beloved brothers.” – James 1:12-16, ISR98

love in scriptureWorks and ritual alone are legalism. Overflowing love through trust is essential to abiding through Yahshua [Jesus] and the Holy Spirit in YHWH’s love. Repentance is part of love as well as the provision of the Father, which allows you to be closer to YHWH as you operate in His track of righteousness, without comparing yourself to other people and worrying about pleasing others. (Matthew 3:2; Luke 13:3; John 15:4-5; Acts 3:19; Galatians 5:13-15, 6:2-5, 12-14; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13; Revelation 2:5; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Purity Starts Inside: A Lesson Through the Age“; “Understanding Real Prosperity“; “The Unpardonable Sin“)

“From that time Yahushua [Jesus] began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” – Matthew 4:17, RNKJV

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love YHWH, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28, RNKJV

“But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, ‘Rabbi, which is the great commandment in the law?’ Yahushua [Jesus] said unto him, ‘Thou shalt love YHWH thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.’” – Matthew 22:34-37, RNKV

“Beloved ones, let us love one another, because love is of Elohim, and everyone who loves has been born of Elohim, and knows Elohim. The one who does not love does not know Elohim, for Elohim is love. ” – 1 John 4:7-8, ISR98

Rising Christian MinistryYHWH is the One that has called you. Allowing pure trust and conviction means casting aside the errors, rituals and corrupt doctrines (including behaviors) of the past. Instead, disciples of the Messiah must live by the Holy Spirit through agape or brotherly love. (John 15:13; Galatians 5:16-25, 6:7-8; 1 Corinthians 5:6, 13:4-8; Hebrews 13:1; 1 John 4:7, 20; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“; “Where Do You Place Your Trust?“; “Learning to Live in Trust” ; “Abiding in Trust“; “What You Should Be Optimistic About“)

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” – 1 John 4:18, NKJV

“Trust in YHWH with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding” – Proverbs 3:5, RNKJV

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” – Ephesians 5:11, RNKJV

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”” – John 13:34-35, NKJV

“Let all that you do be done with love.” – 1 Corinthians 16:14, NKJV

bible-hug-internetTake off the old man and put on Yahshua [Jesus]. You must not be overtaken by sin or sudden temptation, but rather to anticipate it through the knowledge of Christian character through scripture and Spirit. (prolemphthe, prolambano; Galatians 5:24, 26-6:1, 6; John 3:16-17; Hosea 4:6-7; 1 Corinthians 12:8; Romans 5:3-5) In this way, you are set free from sin’s power. (“Understanding Sin“; “Freedom in Christ Despite the World“; “YHWH’s Protection in Difficult Times“; “Overcoming Fear During Difficult Times“; “Discernment: Having an Ear to Deeper Understanding“)

“No trial has overtaken you except such as is common to man, and Elohim is trustworthy, who shall not allow you to be tried beyond what you are able, but with the trial shall also make the way of escape, enabling you to bear it.” – 1 Corinthians 10:13, ISR98

“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” – James 3:13-18, NKJV

“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” – John 14:15-17, NKJV

baptism of trust - Holy SpiritAs you live by the Holy Spirit’s power, you must submit every aspect of your life to YHWH. (emotional, physical, social, intellectual, vocational) Nobody else determines your values. This isn’t about some kind of mythical ‘perfection,’ but simply about where you place your priorities. When you have salvation, you live like it to the degree humanly possible in this age. In this way, you stomp down the iniquity of your family line and remove sin and its attitudes from your life. The Holy Spirit is the Source of your new life and your growing knowledge and understanding of scripture! The evidence of the Holy Spirit is unquestionable because He always bears spiritual fruit, in you and all who love their Heavenly Father YHWH and appreciate the sacrifice of His Son for the forgiveness of sin. (John 15:26, 16:7-15, 20:21-23; Acts 5:32; Galatians 6:9-10, 14-15; Ephesians 4:30; Romans 8:26, 15:13; 1 Corinthians 2:13, 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:5; “Freedom: The Law of Sin and Death“; “Do You Take Sin For Granted?“; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“; “Disciple: Love Instead of Conformity“)

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” – John 14:26

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
