You Remind Me: Is God A Holy Spirit Or A Holy Ghost?

Move these links and the notes at the end of this post to the next post about Holy Spirit

There is no biblical difference between the Holy Ghost and the Holy Spirit.

"And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness," (Luke 4:1)

"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Luke 11:13)

It is not 100% verifiable why the translators who published the original King James Version used the terms interchangeably. Perhaps they did it for variety to avoid repetition but this is my speculation and not a revelation from God.

The Holy Bible includes the insight, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:24)

In the King James Version Jesus, John the Baptist and Peter use the term "Holy Ghost." (Matthew 3:11, Mark 3:29, Acts 2:38)

Jesus also used the term "Comforter" and "Advocate" when he taught about the Holy Ghost.

"But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me." (John 15:26)

The Holy Bible says the Lord gives the Holy Ghost to whosoever obeys Him. (Acts 5:32). And if you like to the Holy Ghost, then you lie to God. So the Holy Spirit is a "He." (Acts 5:1-4)

It is confusing because the Bible reads from "everlasting to everlasting," the spirit of God can never die.

The exact same Greek and Hebrew words are translated "ghost" and "spirit" in the KJV in different occurrences of the words. By "ghost," the KJV translators did not intend to communicate the idea of "the spirit of a deceased person." In 1611, when the KJV was originally translated, the word "ghost" primarily referred to "an immaterial being."


I'll humbly ask you to examine braille. This witty invention allows blind people to read signs without seeing or hearing. Jesus heals the blind in the pages of the New Testament.

I can testify that while we cannot see or audibly hear the Holy Spirit in us, God in us, we are not blind to the signs that it guides us to like a shepherd leads his sheep.

Jesus is the Good Shepherd.

He speaks to us through the Holy Spirit in messages "uttered without voice, infrasonic, having frequencies below those of audible sound." That is the dictionary definition of inaudible: "silent having a frequency below or above the range of human audibility."
