The Holy Spirit is God's Wife

The Holy Spirit is God's Wife





We know that The holy spirit is a force, the invisible power and energy of the Father by which God is everywhere present that is effluent from His person and presence, filling universal space. The Spirit is not a 'separate' or 'other' person. Ac 7:55, 56; Re 7:10 It is God's own radiant power, ever out flowing from Him, by which His 'everywhereness' is achieved. Ps 104:30; 1 Cor 12:4-11.

The Spirit is personal in that it is of God Himself: it is not personal in the sense of being some other person within the Godhead" The phrase like a dove is a descriptive comparison. The Spirit is not a dove, but descended like one in some sort of bodily representation.

However there is another meaning to the Holy Spirit a deeper meaning

1. The Holy Spirit is the group of all the angels who are married to God.

2. The Holy Spirit is our spiritual Mother.

3. The whole congregation is regarded as being one body, one wife.

4. God has a family of which he is the father, the Holy Spirit is the mother, God's wife, and Jesus is now the firstborn son.

The holy spirit is described by John as the helper:

Jn 14:26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you .

But Adam's wife was described in the same way:

Gen 2:18 And Yahweh Elohim went on to say: It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him.

Just as Eve was a complement and helper to Adam so the holy spirit is God's helper, and a complement to him. It is his wife. It is Jesus' mum and ours. The four are a family. The holy spirit although was not mentioned much in the old testament, here are all the explicit references to it as 'the holy spirit'...Ps 51:11 Isaiah 63:10, 11

But it was referred to more in other ways...Deut 34:9 Jn 14:17 Ex 35:31

Since the holy spirit imparts wisdom it must be an intelligent being or beings. Likewise we can deduce that the holy spirit is a living intelligent thing because it can plead for us:

So since it is a living spirit, so it must consist either of an angel or of a group of them. We know that there is more than one angel...

Ps 104:4 Making his angels [his messengers] spirits, his ministers a devouring fire.

Heb 1:13 But with reference to which one of the angels has he ever said: Sit at my right hand, until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth on behalf of those who are going to inherit salvation?.

The holy spirit does God's ministering and contains ministers, who are holy spirits plural. So the holy spirit is a group of angels. So it must be the group of all the angels who are married to God, all the angels who are in a covenant with God who are partakers of the divine nature

Hence Paul said: Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.

The Jerusalem above is God's heavenly administration which is all of the loyal angels, which is all of the holy spirits. Paul explicitly states that these angels are our Mother, for they give birth to all the new angels. Now mother's plead with father's not to be too hard on errant sons. And that is precisely the meaning of Romans 8:26, the holy spirit interceding with God for the sanctified ones, is the mother interceding with the father for her sons.

God does refer to a whole nation of people as one person...

Ex 4:22 And you must say to Pharaoh: This is what Yahweh has said: Israel is my son, my firstborn.

He also refers to the entire church as Jesus' wife, one person in the singular...

Ephesians 5:22 Let wives be in subjection to their husbands as to the Lord,

23 because a husband is head of his wife as the Christ also is head of the congregation, he being a saviour of [that] body.

24 In fact, as the congregation is in subjection to the Christ, so let wives also be to their husbands in everything.




So the whole congregation is regarded as being one body, one wife. Here is a table of greater or lesser husbands and wives...

                                              Husbands Wives

                                                 Joseph             Mary

                                                President First Lady 

                                                        King Queen

                                                  Jesus            Christian church

                                                     Priest Congregation

                                  Managing Director    Board of directors

                            President of corporation    All the vice presidents as a group

                                  Manager of sports team        Sports Team

                                                   Field Marshal His Army

                                                    Prime Minister Cabinet

                                                          God           Holy Spirit, all the holy angels




The very word 'corporation', or 'incorporated' means a lot of people regards as one body.

Now the Holy Spirit is the Mother of everyone living spiritually whereas Adam called his wife Eve because:

Gen 3:20 After this Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she had to become the mother of everyone living.

So God does have a family, and in this family he is the father, the holy spirit is the mother, God's wife, and Jesus is now the firstborn son. So there it is. There is nothing mystical or indecipherable about it, we are just talking about your regular family (well OK they are a rather powerful example!). This is why you cannot blaspheme against God or against his wife, who wears his name but you could blaspheme against Jesus, before he was resurrected...

Mat 12:31 On this account I say to you: Every sort of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven.

32 For example, whoever speaks a word [in blasphemy] against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks [in blasphemy] against the holy spirit, it will not be forgiven him, no, not in this system of things nor in that to come.

So the holy spirit has the same status as God, being his wife, so it cannot just be one angel, for if it was, then that angel would also be a God to be worshipped with the same status as Yahweh.

Incidentally the holy spirit, or helper or comforter, the spirit of the truth, the spirit of wisdom, sent by God, is always referred to in the neuter in scripture. However, the spirit of truth, sent by Jesus, which is also called a helper is referred to in the masculine...

Jn 15:26 When the helper arrives that I will send you from the Father, the spirit of the truth, which proceeds from the Father, that one will bear witness about me.

Jn 16:7 Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit I am going away. For if I do not go away, the helper will by no means come to you, but if I do go my way, I will send him to you.

Jn 16:13 However, when that one arrives, the spirit of the truth, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak of his own impulse, but what things he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things coming.

This 'spirit of the truth', the one sent by Jesus, as opposed to the one sent by Yahweh, is the angel of Revelation that presented Revelation in signs to John...

Rev 1:1 A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent forth his angel and presented [it] in signs through him to his slave John.

So all of the holy angels together, as the holy spirit, are feminine. But each individual angel is masculine.

Heb 1:13 But with reference to which one of the angels has he ever said: Sit at my right hand, until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth [as the holy spirit] on behalf of those who are going to inherit salvation?.

The holy spirit itself is the helper, the ministering spirit for all of us, and so are these angels. So the one is the sum of the others.
