Acts 5.3 and the Holy Spirit [< 1 page]

Jesus called the holy spirit the “finger of God;” so the holy spirit is God’s instrument of activity, and the Bible associates God’s spirit with His power. Therefore, the holy spirit should not be regarded as a person, whether as part of a trinity or as a totally separate person; but it is reflective of Personality, and that Personality is God (the Father).

The word, the logos, God's plan, His purpose, became flesh and dwelt among us. With the coming into existence of Jesus Christ at his conception and birth, the full plan and heart of God was expressed as a human being. Jesus Christ was full of divine grace and truth. What became flesh in John 1.14 was not a preexistent or eternally begotten Son of God. What became flesh was God's full plan of salvation revealed in the Man Jesus Christ.
