Restoring the Bride of Messiah

The Set-apart Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh)

The infilling of the Set-apart Spirit of Elohim is the greatest gift we have received in this life on earth. Whereas the Patriarchs in the Tanakh had to walk out the Torah on their own, we believers in Messsiah have been given this awesome Gift, a kind of partnership, who is our Helper in our walk. Let us not forget all that was done on Calvary for our benefit. We need to restore Torah, but do not forsake the Set-apart Spirit and His most important ministries.


The Divine Personality of the Ruach KaKodesh


“And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. John 14:16-18

“But the Helper, the Set-apart Spirit, whom the Father shall send in My Name, He shall teach you all, and remind you of all that I said to you. John 14:26

“But I say the truth to you. It is better for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you at all, but if I go, I shall send Him to you. And having come, He shall reprove the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment – concerning sin because they do not believe in Me, concerning righteousness because I go to My Father and you see Me no more, concerning judgment because the ruler of this world is judged. I still have many words to say to you, but you are not able to bear them now. But when He comes, the Spirit of the Truth, He shall guide you into all the truth. For He shall not speak from Himself, but whatever He hears He shall speak, and He shall announce to you what is to come. He shall esteem Me, for He shall take of what is Mine and announce it to you.”
John 16:7-15

But Kĕpha said, “Ḥananyah, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Set-apart Spirit and keep back from the price of the land for yourself? While it remained, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your authority? Why have you conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to Elohim.” Acts 5:3-4

And as they were doing service to the Master and fasted, the Set-apart Spirit said, “Separate unto Me Barnaḇah and Sha’ul for the work to which I have called them.”  Acts 13:2

Do you not know that you are a Dwelling Place of Elohim and that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you? If anyone destroys the Dwelling Place of Elohim, Elohim shall destroy him. For the Dwelling Place of Elohim is set-apart, which you are. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17

Or do you not know that your body is the Dwelling Place of the Set-apart 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

And do not grieve the Set-apart Spirit of Elohim, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30

The Set-apart Spirit is not a mere impersonal force. He is not a mere power that we can get hold of and use, nor a mere influence that we feel.

He is a Person who seeks to get hold of us and use us. Personal pronouns (such as he, him, I, etc.) are used of the Set-apart Spirit. He speaks, he knows he can be grieved and lied to.

A person is anyone who can think, act, feel, speak and be spoken to; anyone capable of self-consciousness, capable of personal decision and will. From the personal names, attributes, acts and offices of the Set-apart Spirit, we know he is a person.

The Set-apart Spirit is a Divine Personality whom we must honor, love, worship, fellowship with and listen to.

Searches and Reveals the Deep Things of Elohim

But as it has been written, “Eye has not seen, and ear has not heard, nor have entered into the heart of man what Elohim has prepared for those who love Him.” But Elohim has revealed them to us through His Spirit.

So also, the thoughts of Elohim no one has known, except the Spirit of Elohim. And we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from Elohim, in order to know what Elohim has favourably given us, which we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Set-apart Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual matters with spiritual matters. 1 Corinthians 2:9-13
