God is a person- not three persons – as much as the Holy spirit is a person

Personality of the Holy Spirit – Holy Spirit a Person?

Quote Personality of the Holy Spirit.–“We need to realize that the Holy Spirit, who is as much a person as God is a person, is walking through Ellen White Holy Spiritthese grounds.”–Manuscript 66, 1899. {Ellen White Evangelism 616}

This quote says “God is a person”. This seems to be non-trinitarian as well. Since Trinitarians teach that “God is three persons”.

However, let me go further. Let’s say “Paul is a person as much as his spirit is a person.” Would we then say Paul’s spirit was someone separate and distinct from Paul? This is the same with our father in heaven. He is spirit the bible says.

John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

These verses talk about our father who is spirit, and we are to worship him in spirit and in truth. Many think that our God is a “mystery” which they call a Trinity. The words of Jesus “Ye know not what ye worship” would apply if our God is a mystery.

When we get to heaven, God will not then say “Meet my spirit”. We will see God face to face, and we will know him. The father of Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

The spirit is as much a person as God is a person.

    Paul’s spirit was not a person. When Paul was with them in spirit, he could not really see and hear them, only imagine what they were doing at the moment. Only his memory was in their minds, no person was there, even an invisible one. Saying that Paul’s spirit was a separate person from his body is spiritualism.
