"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of
the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.
The declaration is: Holy Ghost is God. Holy Spirit is a gift, from God to man. One is God. One is Gift. Both are not same. Explanation: Also, the Holy Ghost baptism is ordination, gifts, and power to do the ministry. Receiving the Holy Spirit, which is sealed by the holy spirit, is a gift from God to a person for his/her holy living. The Holy Ghost makes a person an ordained minister, and the Holy Spirit makes a person a born again believer.
Christians teachers claim to be masters in bible knowledge, but they do not know the difference between God "the Holy Ghost" and a gift "the Holy Spirit", which is given to a believer, to lead him/her in holy life. The almighty God cannot be given as a gift to a man to own. God is not a gift. He is our creator and he owns us. Please study the lessons on these links: "Holy Ghost", "Holy Spirit", "Ghost and Spirit Video." Thank you.
God Bless You
