7:35 Who is the Ruach haKadosh (The
Holy Spirit)? Is the Ruach a force only? Or an inanimate object? Or a living
conscious being - the 3rd expression of a triune Elohim? But what kind of
The Hebrew presents the Ruach in feminine tense, and with female
characteristics; but the Greek refers to the Ruach as "He". Which is the more
accurate description? And what role has the Ruach played in the creation of the
earth, and in the lives of Torah obedient believers today?
Wisdom is justified of Her Children, Luka 7:35We have the Father, and the Son, but where�s
In Jewish thought and literature, as well as in
the nuances of the Hebrew language itself, is revealed an understanding of the
personage and character of the Ruach HaKadosh that has for the most part been
lost through translation and introduction of pagan influences into the assembly.
Lost to everybody, that is, except the Jews and others learned in the Torah, and
in the Hebrew language of Scripture.
The Ruach is simply the femine manifestation of
Let�s begin by first stating that Hebrew, like
many languages of the earth, contain both feminine and masculine tenses. The
tense of the word determining the gender of the noun being described. For
example, in Spanish �muchacho� means boy, and �muchacha� means girl. The �o� at
the end of muchacho defining masculine tense, and the �a� at the end of muchacha
defining feminine tense.
In Hebrew, the word �Ruach� is feminine tense,
assigning to the Spirit a feminine nature, character, gender. But when a tense
(male or female) is in reference to a life form, then the tense is in reference
to the �gender� of the life form.
Since we know the Ruach to be a conscious, living being,
the manifested power of YHWH capable of leading us, guiding us, and of
instructing and teaching us in the Way of all truth; Yochanan 14:26, Luka 12;12;
we can determine from the tense of the Hebrew and Aramaic words that the
Ruach HaKadosh is feminine tense, and therefore, �female in gender.
This point is entirely lost in the Greek
which has no feminine tense for spirit, but only a neuter tense, which is why
�Spirit� is always presented as a �He� in the Greek (neuter words are given male
attributes in translation), which error has been erroneously transferred over
into the English. In the Aramaic the word for Spirit is Feminine as well with
the word Ruacha axwr,
confirming the Hebrew understanding of the word Ruaah or
also at first thought think that this somehow is a study endorsing �Mother of
Heaven� worship, such as what the Catholics with Mary, and as Moslems do with
Fatima. However, this study in no way shape or form endorses these false and
improper applications of the truths in Scripture concerning the identity of the
Ruach haKadosh (Holy Spirit), any more than a true study on Kepha (Peter) would
endorse Kepha (Peter) as the first Pope, or as a true study on Ishmael would
endorse Mohammed as a true prophet.All false religions take truths of Scripture
and corrupt and misapply them to one degree or another. If anything, the
existence of a concept of �a mother in heaven� is only evidence of the fact that
haSatan (Satan/the Accuser) is a counterfeiter. And as such, attempts to produce
counterfeit substitutes for every aspect of truth presented in Scripture in
order to lead people astray into false doctrines, such as the worship of �Mary�
as the Mother of Heaven, which teaching and heresy is akin to blasphemy.
Scripture identifies Her character and role in
creation. She is our spiritual mother.
In Beresheeth (Genesis) 1:26,27 it is
1:26 �Then Elohim said, let Us make humans in
our image according to our likeness��
1:27 And Elohim created man in His own image,
in the image of Elohim He created him, male and female He created them.�
The word �human� here will say �man� in your
translation, but it comes from the Hebrew word �Adam� which means humankind or
�mankind�, if you prefer the traditional term.
So if Elohim said �let us� - plural - make
humankind/ humans/ mankind in �our� image, and He made them male and female, and
the man was made in the image of the father, then in whose image was the female
Do the Scriptures give us a clue as to who was
here in the beginning? Yes. Study Mishlei (Proverbs) 8:1 through 9:5.
This whole passage describes a being, named
Wisdom, who is female in gender and motherly in nature; and who was here at the
beginning of creation, and even before
creation, before there ever was an earth.
It describes her as being daily Yahuwah�s
delight, rejoicing always before Him, and in His inhabited world; and states
that her delight was in the sons of men. Then She refers to Yahuwah�s children
1- Her children;
2- whoever finds Her finds life;
3- whoever sins against Her wrongs his own soul;
4- She gives instruction concerning truth, righteousness, and justice; and
5- by Her, Kings reign.
In statement #1, in Mishlei (Proverbs) 8,
Wisdom refers to the children of Yahuwah as Her children.
This makes sense, for every child is the
product of communion between male and female. In fact, every living thing on
earth is the product of communion between male and female of the species except
for viruses and bacteria.
This is why the Scriptures state in Yochanan
3:5 Truly, I say to you, unless one is
�born� of water (Word) and of �the Spirit (Mother)�,
he cannot enter the kingdom of Yahuwah.
3:6 For that which is born of flesh is flesh and that which is born of spirit is
3:7 Do not marvel that I said unto you, �You
must be born again�.
The Scriptures tell us in Romans 1:20 that the things of Yahuwah can be
understood through that which has been created.
Creation teaches plainly that all life is born
of the mother, of the female of the species.Never of the father/male of the species. It is
the mother who carries the child and gives birth to it. It all makes perfect
sense that if Yahuwah created the family unit, that the family unit must in some
way be a reflection of Himself.
So here it is, we have Yahuwah the Father, and
Yahshua the Son. But who is the Mother, or motherly force? Creation
itself teaches that it is not possible for a child to have a father without
having a mother. Yahuwah is not the Creator, or perpetuator, of the single parent
family, s.a.tan (Satan/the Accuser) is.
So, if our earthly two-parent family structure is a reflection of the
heavenly/spiritual structure of things - which it is, for all things in the
earthly realm are patterned after those things which are in the spiritual realm.
It�s just a matter of determining which spiritual realm is begin reflected.
Whether it is reflecting the spiritual realm of Yahuwah, or the spiritual realm
of s.a.tan (Satan/the Accuser).
The two-parent family unit is plain to see,
for all of creation reflecting Yahuwah�s Kingdom is two-parent in structure. Now,
once this concept is understood, then some other Scriptures start making more
For example, Beresheeth (Genesis) 2:23,24. Adam said concerning his wife,
2:23 This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh, she shall be called
woman, because she was taken out of man. 2:24 Therefore, a man shall leave his father
and mother to cleave to his wife.
So, Adam joined with his wife Eve; and the
Scriptures state that for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother to
be joined to his wife.
So, how could Adam leave his parents to be joined to his wife if he had no
It is because he did have parents. In the beginning, in Beresheeth (Genesis)
1:26, it is written,
1:26 And Elohim said, �Let Us make humans in our image, and after our likeness�
And Elohim made them male and female; Beresheeth (Genesis) 1:27. In �their�
image and likeness.
Sod-This helps to explain two other passages in the B�rit Chadasha (the
New Testament). Ephesians 6:1,2 states,
6:1 Children, obey your parents in Yahuwah, for this is right.
6:2 Honor your father and mother which is
the first Commandment with promise.
What is the first Commandment? To love
Yahuwah our Elohim with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
That is, to honor our father and mother, is the
same as fulfilling this: the first Commandment, of loving Yahuwah our Father,
with a promise added to it.
What Promise? The promise of the giving of
the Ruach HaKadosh.
In Luka 24:49 Yahshua stated,
I send the promise of my father upon you; but wait in the city of Jerusalem
until you are endued with power from on high.
Then in Ephesians 1:13 it states,
1:13 In Him is the gospel of your
deliverance, in whom also, after having believed, you were sealed with
the Ruach haKadosh (Holy Spirit) of Promise.�
So, honoring our mother and father in earth is what? The first Commandment of
loving Yahuwah our Father - with the promise the Ruach HaKadosh, our spiritual
Mother, added to it.
Now, notice also the curious expression in
Ephesians that stated we have been �sealed� with the Spirit of Promise. What in
creation is sealed by it�s mother, other than a child inside it�s mother�s womb?
If you go to Galatians 4:19 you will find Rav Shaul (Paul) presenting the
analogy of laboring in birth until Yahshua is formed in us, as it is written,
4:19 My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Messiah is formed
In this verse we see the birth process described once again; this time to
describe the formation of our character, into the character of Yahshua, thus
completing the picture of us being sealed inside the womb of our spiritual
mother until the character of Yahshua can be formed in us.
Now this takes us now to Yahshua. For if all
this is true, then we should be able to find evidence of both the Father and the
Ruach (Spirit) being present at the time of Yahshua�s conception inside of
Miriam�s (Mary�s) womb.
Is there such evidence? Absolutely, go to
Luka 1:31,34,35 where it says,
1:31 Behold, you shall conceive in your womb and bring forth a son, and shall
call His name Yahshua�
1:34 then Miriam (Mary) said to the messenger, �How shall this be since I do not
know a man?�
1:35 And the messenger answered and said to her, �the
Ruach HaKadosh (Holy Spirit) will come upon you, and the power of the Highest
shall overshadow you; and therefore that Holy One who will be conceived in you
shall be called the Son of Yahuwah.
You see, the Ruach HaKadosh (the Holy Spirit) was resting upon Miriam (Mary),
and Yahuwah, the Most High Elohim, was overshadowing her.
The Ruach HaKadosh (Holy Spirit) �rested upon�
Miriam (Mary) - no doubt to place her seed in Miriam�s (Mary�s) womb, and Yahuwah
no doubt �overshadowed her� to cause that seed to be fertilized.
And in this case, Miriam (Mary), with her pure,
undefiled, virgin womb, was being used as the concubine, or �surrogate mother�
if you will, through which Yahuwah and the Ruach HaKadosh (Holy Spirit) would
bring forth their Son into this world in human form through.
Go to Ephesians 5:25-27 and 30-32.
Where it states,
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Messiah also loved the assembly of
called out ones and gave Himself for it,
5:26 that He might purify it and cleanse it with the washing of water by the
5:27 in order to present it to Himself a splendid assembly, not having spot or
wrinkle or any such thing; but that it might be set apart and without blemish�
5:30 for we are members of His body, �of His flesh and of His bones� [Compare to
Beresheeth (Genesis) 2:23]
5:31 For this reason, a man shall leave his
father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh;
Beresheeth (Genesis) 2:24. 5:32 This is a real mystery, but I speak
concerning Messiah and the assembly of called out ones.�
So here we are back to the leaving of the
father and mother scenario, but this time in relation to Yahshua taking the
assembly of called out ones as His wife. Rav Shaul (the Apostle Paul) says this
is a great mystery, but he obviously knew what this mystery was, as any one
knowledgeable in Torah, and Scripture, will also know.
First let�s address the statement about how Yahshua is taking the assembly of
called out ones to purify them, and cleanse them with the washing of water by
Remember Yochanan (John) 3:5-6 where it
stated we must be born of water and of the Spirit? (Mother�s womb and the
What is the common element required for
existence of all life on earth? Water. No living thing on earth can be brought
forth, or sustained, without water.
And what, in particular, in Scripture, is
stated that requires water to in order to germinate? A seed. And a seed in order
to germinate must first die and dry out; Yochanan (John) 12:24.
Then, to germinate it and revive it, we must provide water.The Scripture states in Galatians 3:29,
3:29 if you belong to Messiah, then you are Avraham�s �seed�, and heirs
according to the Promise.
In I Yochanan (I John) 3:9, it says,
3:9 Whoever has been begotten of Elohim does not sin for His �seed� remains in
him and he cannot sin, because he has been begotten of Elohim.�
You see, repenting and calling on Yahshua
causes us to receive the Promise of the Ruach (of the Spirit); Acts 5:31,32, and
to be �sealed� in Her womb; Ephesians 1:13, at which time Yahuwah plants His seed
This seed in turn is fertilized -
germinated with the �water� of the Word, thus causing us to become conceived of
the water and of the Spirit as required in Yochanan (John) 3:5.The continuous washing of the water of the Word
ultimately forming us into the image and character of Yahshua.
Now, to get to the heart of the mystery,
Yahshua leaving His Father and Mother to cleave to His wife - His
assembly of called out ones identified in Ephesians 5:25-32 quoted above,
and who have been �born� of the water and of the Spirit, if I had not
explained to you up to this point who the Ruach is, this verse would probably
have had little to no meaning to you, but now perhaps you have an idea of what
mystery Rav Shaul is referring to.
