Three Spirits are known by the name, "the Spirit of God" in the Bible. They are, 1). The one and only Spirit, who has the omni-powers, is God. 2). Holy Ghost, who is a person, is one of the three souls nested in the Spirit of God. But he is not a spirit, even though he is called as a spirit. And 3). Holy Spirit, he is Spirit of man, and he is also called 'Spirit of God.'

Here, is the links to refer the previous studies for details: "Video", "Transcript."

Omnipotent Spirit is God, He always exists, and He is the only Creator.

John 4:24 says God is a Spirit: This Spirit is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. God is Omnipotent according to Job 42:2, Psalm 147:5, Revelation 19:6, etc. Absolutely nothing is impossible to him. He has created from an invisible atom to stars much larger than the sun. God is omnipresent according to Psalm 135:6, 139:7&8, etc. So, he always fills the entire universe. God is Omniscient according to Job 26:6, 34:21&22, Psalm 139:4, etc. So, God knows all things even what we think. Nothing is hidden from him. Because of his omni-powers in his Spirit, he is the only one God.

Holy Ghost is a Soul, He is God; but Holy Spirit is Spirit of Man.

Ghost is a person without flesh body. But spirit is not a person, but an embodiment of power. Holy Ghost is one of the three persons in the omnipotent Spirit body of God. However, God calls him as 'Spirit of God' also. Probably because, he gives the 'gifts of the spirit' to people and guides them in spiritual realm. Christians ignorantly think that Holy Ghost is Holy Spirit. God gives the Holy Spirit as a gift to men to be a part of him, and so, he is the third part of a born-again person. Ephesians 2:1&5 and Colossians 2:13 say that we are spiritually dead if we do not have the holy spirit. As the blood gives life to our body, the holy spirit gives life to our soul. It keeps us spiritually alive, so that we will overcome our sins. The holy spirit is also called the spirit of man. This spirit is created by God. So, Holy Ghost is God, and Holy Spirit is a part of man.

Spiritual Baptism, Filling, and Gifts are all by the Holy Ghost.

In Acts 1:4,5&8 Jesus Christ told his disciples to wait until they receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost and power of God to begin their ministry. Holy Ghost baptism is the license given by God to do the work of God. But the Holy Ghost baptism is not required for eternal life. Acts 1&2 explains how the Holy Ghost baptized people, filled them with power and gave them gifts to do ministry. The Holy Ghost gives ministers to Churches, to serve believers so that they may receive eternal life as in 2 Corinthians 3:6 and Ephesians 4:11-13. He made overseers as in Acts 20:28. The Holy Ghost gives power and gifts severally dividing to believers as he will, as in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11. He gives gifts even to the rebellious people, who are ungodly, according to Psalm 68:18. The repeated baptism of the Holy Ghost is called as the filling of the Holy Ghost.

We must be Born of the Spirit; It is required for eternal life.

In John 3:7 Jesus Christ says marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The first step of born again is to be born of the spirit. What is it? He says in verse 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Here, Jesus Christ mentions two births to a person. The true person is the soul, but not the body. The soul receives the body at conception, we see the body at birth, and this is born of the flesh. Next is born of the spirit. In "John 3:3 Jesus says, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." So, if we are not born of the spirit, that is, if we do not receive the holy spirit in our souls, we cannot even see heaven.  How to receive the holy spirit? Jesus said in "Luke 11:9 ... Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 13 ... how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" So, ask God with repented heart, as a child ask its father, then God will give the holy spirit to you. How do we know if we have the holy spirit? If you twist scriptures and lift one verse to void the other to prove your doctrine, then you do not have the holy spirit. If you love the wholesome word of God to live by it, hate sin, love holiness, and do righteousness, then you have the Holy Spirit. So, receive the holy spirit.
