The kingdom of God is the Holy Ghost

By Pete Rowe - Contributing Writer

In these articles God’s Word is proving that “the Holy Ghost is a Spirit,” not the “third person of the Trinity Godhead” as the majority of the church world believes.

Peter informs us “The Holy Ghost is the very Spirit of Christ” 2 Peter 1:21. 1 Peter 1:10-11: “The “Spirit of Christ was in the Prophets,” foretelling the suffering of Jesus and the glory that would follow.”

“The Holy Ghost is the Father of Jesus,” Matthew 1:18. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise when as his mother, Mary, was espoused to Joseph, before they came together she was found with “Child of the Holy Ghost.”

The church world teaches that Jesus was “100 percent God, and 100 percent human.” The “Word of God” states clearly in John 1:13 that Jesus had no human blood nor DNA of man. Jesus was born “not of blood, nor of the will of flesh, nor of the will of Man, but of God.”

God’s Word will not support “two Holy Spirits.” Jesus confessed in Revelation 1:8 that “he is, and was, and is to come “The Almighty.” Therefore, if Jesus Christ is God, then “his Spirit is the Spirit of God.” Paul agreed in Romans 8:9, “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit” if the “Spirit of God” dwells in you. “But if any Man hath not the ‘Spirit of Christ’ he is none of his.”

“The Kingdom of God is the Holy Ghost.” Jesus preached “his Father’s kingdom,” and taught his disciples to pray, “Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10.

Pharisees asked “When shall the Kingdom appear?” Jesus responded “The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation. Neither can they say, Lo, here; or Lo, there. For the Kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:20-21.

Paul agreed. “The Kingdom of God is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost.” Romans 14:17. If “God’s Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost” is the Kingdom of God, then one must receive his “Gift of the Holy Ghost” to have “the Kingdom of God within him.”

“Repent and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. For this Promise is to you, to your Children, to them afar off, even to as many as the Lord our God shall call.” Acts 2:38-39.
