    ...has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds. (Hebrews 1:2 NKJV)

    Were the worlds made without him?
    Consider the words: ...though whom also He made the worlds.

    Consider also Gen 1, the spirit of God moved across the face of the waters.
    The spiritual son is the spirit of God. All things were created by God through his spirit son. Who is the word in John 1.
    Psalm 1[/COLOR] and Job 28:28

    Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

    Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

    I love the God of my Lord Jesus Christ

    An argument can be successfully made that everything I highlighted in YELLOW refers to the Father and everything highlighted in GREEN refers to the Son.
    Him who? Yahwah, or, Yahshua? The Old Testament says that ONLY Yahwah created all things. The Catholics removed the name of God from the New Testament scripts. Dressing up a lie as the truth is like lipstick on a pig.

    Colossians 1:16
    16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
    17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

    This is how it should read.

    Colossians 1:16
    16 For by Yahwah were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him:
    17 And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

    WRONG!! He is not talking about the Father. He is talking about Jesus.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
    (John 7:38-39 NKJV)
    What happened to the Holy Spirit while Jesus was not yet glorified?
    Jesus said to the woman of Samaria, "but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life." (John 4:14 NKJV)
    How can a person be compared to a fountain of water?
    ...for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (Revelation 7:17 NKJV)
    Again we have the reference to fountains of waters, not a person.

    It's not possible for me to think of the Holy Spirit as anything other than a manifestation of God's Spirit, i.e., his power.
    So your opinion out-weighs everything?

    The Holy Spirit is not some impersonal "force".
    Act 5:3-4 KJV But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? (4) Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
    You can't lie to a "force". You can ONLY lie to a PERSON. And this PERSON is GOD.
    turbosixx says "Yep. Pentecost was the first time men heard the gospel."
    When corrected, turbsixx says "diversion tactic"
    turbosixx is dishonest.


    Col 2:9 (AKJV/PCE)
    (2:9) For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

    1Tim 4:10 (AKJV/PCE)
    (4:10) For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

    Something that was SPOKEN OF since the world began CANNOT be the SAME thing as something KEPT SECRET since the world began.

    Eph 2:8-9 (AKJV/PCE)
    (2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: (2:9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    To add to what you have said. The Spirit has;
    a mind, Romans 8:27
    a will, 1 Corinthians 12:11
    He speaks, Acts 8:29, 13:1
    He loves, Romans 15:20
    He grieves, Ephesians 4:30
    He prays, Romans 8:26

    Forces do not do those things, persons do.

    "Mortal man was never the property of the archdeceivers. Jesus did not die to ransom man from the clutch of the apostate rulers and fallen princes of the spheres. The Father in heaven never conceived of such crass injustice as damning a mortal soul because of the evil doing of his ancestors."UB

    Mat 28:19 KJV Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    You will need to dispute that with the author of Hebrews. I didn't write it, I just quoted it.

    What if we put verse 16 back into the context.

    He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. (Colossians 1:15-18 NKJV)

    The name "Yahwah" is not biblical.
