What Is Holy Spirit And What Is The Holy Ghost?

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all it's righteousness and all this things will be added unto you Mathew 6:33. The Kingdom of God is love and he who seek him most do that in spirit and in truth. By sharing love, peace and coming together to serve the Lord God Almighty. Every religion talks about the issue of creation and the existence of God and man. I want to observe that we are all human beings but the level of our religious believe is determine by our level of human and God perception. How did man come into existence and who is God is what every religion is talking about but in different context.

I am not a fanatic but I am very proud and comfortable with my religious believe which is the best and the most popular in the World. For the Bible says that we are save by grace through Jesus Christ. And what love is greater than the love of God who gave his life to save us.

I believe in God and the TRINITY but can some body please explain the difference between Holy spirit and Holy ghost?

Do you believe that you have a spirit.

If so when was the last time you felt your own spirit.

The Spirit can not be felt, cannot be detected. God can only show his Power by his Spirit, how is present every were.

I used a search engine on  http://www.biblegateway.com and the new international version does not have the word Holy Ghost, but it rather uses Holy Spirit. The use of Holy Ghost is found in the King James version.

They mean the same thing, for example

From King James version, Matthew 1:18  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the[b] Holy Ghost[/b]

From New international version,  Matthew 1:18 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit

Just like asking the difference between "male" and "masculine". Synonyms! "spirit" and "ghost" are both the same.

What Is Holy Spirit And What Is The Holy Ghost?

The question about the Holy Ghost is not to be discussed with those that are not born again, the first step to knowing who the Holy Ghost is is to be born again, then other things can follow.

No matter how one explains and describe the Holy Spirit to you, you cannot understand it, He is too complicated for those who are not born again.

The question should have been; Who is The Holy Sprirt and Who is the Holy Ghost, because the Holy Spirit is a Person and He has a Personality. The Name Holy Spirit and Holy Ghost can be used interchangeably, They mean the same thing.

I think they are still having problem with that TRINITY which was never preached by OT prophets and Jesus never preached same but was inserted into the bible by those that couldnt be held responsible as the original and real author of the bible.

Stimulus raised a thread on the logos but have not come back to answer some questions put across at him.
