The Christ, in Him or what gives Him breath or life is not of the human spirit but the HOLY SPIRIT.
God is Spirit;
“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”John 4:24 NKJV
He Fills Heaven and Earth;
“Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD.”Jeremiah 23:24 NKJV
God is Holy
“but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”I Peter 1:15-16 NKJV
Therefore, God is a vast, unquantifiable Holy Spirit who can send out part of Himself to anybody and to anywhere with His nature as Spirit intact or not even reduced. It’s like a vast self-conscious ocean who can send waves to wherever the ocean chooses.
Having said the above, the Holy Spirit that conceived the Christ was His Father since Holy Spirit is simply a nature of the Father. Evidently, He is called the Son of God not Son of the Holy Spirit. He called God His Father not He called the Holy Spirit His Father simply because, God and Holy Spirit is one and the same.
- God Or, Father is the title name
- Holy is the description
- Spirit is the nature
So, now we have established that God Father is the Holy Spirit. The next to established is whether the Father who is Holy Spirit by nature dwells in the Christ.
“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”John 14:11 NKJV
The verse above should be interpreted literally because it’s plausible for a Spirit to dwell in a living soul.
The Christ himself confesses that the Father who is Holy Spirit is in Him. Now, it is said that Spirit is the one that gives life, without spirit the body is dead
“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26 NKJV
Since Father is in the Christ and Father is Spirit and without Spirit the body is dead. It follows that the Father is the one giving life to the Christ, not Adamic spirit or human spirit. Why would He still need a human spirit within Him so as to have breath when the Father who is the source of all breath is already in Him? In fact in verse below, His breath is the Holy Spirit;
“And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:22 NKJV
Others may reason out that the Holy Spirit only dwells after the resurrection hence, the above since happened after the resurrection, He was able to breathe the Holy Spirit. But, how about the Jhon 14:11, the Father who is a Spirit, was already in Him even before death, does it mean that the Father in Him is not Holy? I don’t think so.
Some say, the dwelling only started when He was baptized in the Jordan river but, if this is the case, it would follow that Jhon the baptized is greater than Christ because as the verse below;
“For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.”Luke 1:15 NKJV
Since Jhon is already filled with the Holy Spirit even in the womb. And, it said that Christ is greater than Jhon the Baptist
“Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”
What could be higher or greater than the filling of Holy Spirit even in the womb except within the Christ or what causes the breath of Christ in the womb is the Holy Spirit Himself, not the human spirit? But, He does have a human body, it can still feel pain the same as how human would feel at least before the resurrection,
Remember that Jesus is without a human father, His Father is Holy Spirit who is life in itself.
Now, how about that the other verses with small “s” implying that He has a human spirit?
Well, not all spirit in the bible means literal. Spirit in a literal sense is something that you can’t see. You don’t know how strong, the attitude, character, morale except that you see it from its visible manifestation which is the person itself.
Having said the above, when someone says “strong in spirit” as below, it is an idiomatic term to mean, the person has a strong personality, will or some sort.
“So the child grew and became strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his manifestation to Israel.”Luke 1:80 NKJV
Troubled in spirit is also an idiomatic term to mean, the person is worried or thinking about something. If it means a literal spirit, you would not even know whether it’s troubled or not because it’s invisible.
“When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.”John 13:21 NKJV
Yielded up His spirit or give up His spirit is also an idiomatic term to simply means, he losses the will to live or, yielded up his breath, or the body surrendered its life.
I commit My spirit is also an idiomatic term to simply means, He is entrusting His life to the Father as a spirit also means life.
“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.”Matthew 27:50 NKJV
“And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ Having said this, He breathed His last.”Luke 23:46 NKJV
“Crying out in a loud voice, Jesus said, “Father, into your hands I entrust my life.” After he said this, he breathed for the last time.”Luke 23:46 CEB
Why is it necessary for a human spirit not to passed through the Christ? The answer is because the original sin which came from Adam and Eve is passed on spiritually. It follows a father line model. Given to Adam, corrupted by Adam and from that point, it is being passed on through biological father and so forth. No human can be born without a biological human father may it either be an accident, purposely or artificial. The Christ is the special case because He was born without a human father, therefore, the Adamic spirit that carries the original sin was not passed to Him. Otherwise, He would have acquired the original sin and He will become not a blameless lamb. The bible is very clear that He never sinned. Click Inherited and committed Sin to read further. And, those who are born of God cannot sin.
“And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.” I John 3:5 NKJV
“Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.”I John 3:9 NKJV
The Christ is the only one who was LITERALLY born of God, not of the human father. Therefore, He cannot sin.
