THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE BREATH OF LIFE AND WE ARE SPIRITS, BECOMING THE WORD OF GOD FOR ALL ETERNITY

The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks. God is Thought (Thought is Life), God is Love, God is a Spirit, the eternal Spirit from which all things were created. You are a part of His Spirit (Eccl 12:7); you are either an eternal Spirit, or an eternal spirit.
THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS MANIFESTED AS HIS WORD
WHAT THINK YOU ON THIS?
(Gen 1:1-3) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form [Heb: to lie waste, a desolation, desert, a worthless thing], and void [Heb: empty, a vacuity, an undistinguishable ruin]; and darkness  was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit [Heb: wind; breath] of God [first thought about, then manifestly or actively] moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: [God said words, i.e., words are the fruit of God’s thoughts, and “the Spirit of God” manifestly “moved” thereby creating the following consequence (syn: result, effect)] and there was light [Heb: illumination, (happiness)].
1. darkness = Heb: lit. darkness; fig. misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness.
2. Commentary: “and there was light” = which was the result or effect of God’s words being “said.” Saying a word requires breathing, therefore one might with some assurance say that the Word of God (His breath) may be identified as the Holy Spirit (Heb: wind; breath).
a. (Gen 2:7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living [Heb: alive] soul.
b. (John 20:19-23) Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week [Sunday], when the doors were shut [and locked] where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus [the risen Jesus Christ] and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad [Gk: happy, joyful], when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit [Gk: forgive], they are remitted [Gk: forgiven] unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain [Gk: keep], they are retained [Gk: kept].
(John 1:1-5) In the beginning [“before all time” Amplif.] was the Word [Gk: logos] [“Christ” Amplif.] , and the Word was with God [i.e., enjoying communion and fellowship with God], and the Word was God [“Himself” Amplif.]. The same [Word] was in the beginning with God. All things [including the Angels] were made by him [the Word]; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life [thought]; and the life [thought] was the light  of men. And the light shineth  in [the] darkness [of mankind, because they are ignorant, not “lit up,” not illuminated and illuminating, not educated in godliness, not the brightly shining “stars” God would have them be]; and the darkness [of mankind] comprehended  it not [perceives it not it and thus understands it not].
1. Christ = Gk: anointed [the anointing], the Messiah, that is, an epithet of Jesus.
a. King James Bible Commentary: “In the beginning” = Since words reveal the thoughts of one person to another, Christ as the Eternal Word is a revelation of God to man.
b. Commentary: Words are seeds that contain thoughts (fruit).
2. light = Heb: (to shine or make manifest, especially by rays); luminousness: fire, light.
3. shineth = Heb: to lighten (shine), that is, show: appear, be seen, X think.
4. comprehended = Heb: to take eagerly, that is, seize, possess, etc. (lit. or fig.): apprehend, attain, find, obtain, perceive, take.
(1 Pet 2:9) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth [Gk: publish, celebrate] the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Jesus = logos = seed = the body container = soul
Christ = rhema = fruit = what comes forth out of the body container = Spirit
(John 1:14) And the Word [Gk: logos] [of God] was made flesh [was made literally flesh as the body of Jesus Christ (the seed container), and by extension, was made figuratively flesh as the Bible (the seed container)], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten [Gk: the only born] of the Father [i.e., Jesus Christ],) full of grace and truth.
1. (Luke 8:11) Now the parable is this: The seed is the word [Gk: logos] of God [Jesus & Bible].
2. Commentary: “the Word [logos of God] was made flesh” = exactly as the Word of God is now being “made flesh” in born-again us, i.e., being seeded in us. Words are containers for thoughts [e.g., Jesus Christ’s body contains God’s thoughts]. God’s words (containers for thoughts) are replacing our natural man’s (i.e., Satan’s) words (containers for thoughts) “line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” (Isa 28:10). Visualize this sentence or a verse to be like a railroad train of connected boxcars (words), each boxcar word containing a cargo (of thoughts).
a. (Isa 28:9-13) Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept [Heb: command] [vertical command sentences issued from God to godly men] must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line [Heb: a connecting cord] [horizontal command sentences issued through godly men to other godly men] upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little [altogether forming a net (Mat 13:47)]: For with stammering lips [seemingly, to the natural man] [Heb: a buffoon /// to speak unintelligibly] and another tongue [the Bible] will he speak [words] to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken [Heb: be caught (in a net, trap or pit)].
b. (Mat 13:47-50) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea [a biblical symbol of humanity], and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels [Gk: receptacles] [containers, i.e., Words], but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world [Gk: aion; this world]: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
c. Commentary: “and another tongue” = ref. “tongues” (1 Cor 12:10). The Bible is the “tongue” of the Lord, i.e., an assembly of the Lord God’s thoughts, spoken in words by the Holy Spirit (breath) of God through His good heavenly angels (Spirits) to the bad fallen angels (spirits) dwelling inside the earthly bodies (prisons) of men, some of whom have reconsidered their rebellion and have become rehabilitated redeemed Godly (Spirits) willing and desiring to again serve the living God for all eternity.
