Nuray I can clearly see that you don't understand the Holy trinity. Nowhere in the Bible are angels called the Holy spirit. The Holy spirit is from God and is the third person of the Godhead.

In Genesis 18 verse 1-3 we see a manifestation of the Holy Trinity. "And the Lord appeared on to him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground and said: My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight,pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant."

As you can see, Abraham addressed the three men as if it was one person. The three men were a manifestation of God. And like I said before God talks face to face with is Prophets, except for Muhammad because he was not sent by God.

When it comes to the swearing, God makes it clear that he only swears by himself because there is nothing greater than himself. That stuff you are saying about expressions is not valid because when taking an oath one as to be precise and direct. If Yahweh only swears by himself and Allah swears by the moon and the stars and a multitude of created objects he can't be Yahweh. Yahweh makes it clear that he does not change and never swears by his creations.
