Breathe on me breath of God, fill me with life anew

Reader comment on item: Dennis Kucinich, Lefty for Radical Islam
in response to reader comment: The Comforter, Holy Ghost, as The Lord of the Earth

Submitted by Lactantius Jr (United Kingdom), Jan 2, 2016 at 17:39

To Barbara Tuttle I greet you in the Name of the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, praying that the Holy Spirit Who inspired the writing of the Scriptures I quoted and now refer to, will assist me as I seek to present to you the truth of His words. May I "Do my best to present myself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15 The Comforter is indeed a person, not a human person who would come later, but the third Person of the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Who is revealed in the Bible. Revelation 12:1 indeed refers to a "woman," the "woman" being in fact the first of the seven churches mentioned in Revelation, the church at Ephesus, and to the opening of the first seal; and the church apostolical is here called "a woman", because the church was not now in its infancy, but grown up, mature, and at full age; and because espoused and married to Christ her husband, to whom she now brought forth many children. 2 John 1:1 "The elder,to the elect lady and her children" refers to the beloved apostle John, with reference to "the elect lady and her children," not indicating the Church of Christ, but indicating a woman of distinction and substance; "her children" not being infants, but were grown up and who had made a profession of the truth, and walked in it, as recorded at 2 John 1:4 with both the mother and her children, the apostle John representing as the objects of his love: Jeremiah 1:5 speaks of the Triune God's eternal purposes and decrees in His separation of Jeremiah to the office of a prophet before Jeremiah was born, and even before the world began; just as the Apostle Paul was separated to the Gospel of God, ( Romans 1:1 ), for it precedes, "and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations" With kind regards and all good wishes Jesus Christ is Lord Lactantius Jr "All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work "2 Timothy 3:16&17
