Question: Where does the Spirit of Yahweh first show up in the Scriptures?
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Genesis 1:1-3 NKJV
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Romans 8:14-17 NKJV
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
II Corinthians 3:18 NKJV
Question: Where does the Spirit of Yahweh last show up in the Scripture?

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63 NKJV

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
John 16:13-15 NKJV
Note: Holy Spirit shows up 100 times in the Scripture. 3 in the Older Covenant and 97 in the Newer Covenant. 44 of those times He shows up BIG in the book of Acts.
Question: Have you ever noticed that we pray, sing and worship, teach and preach about the Father and the Son; but we hardly ever recognize and honor Holy Spirit in the House?
Note: Holy Spirit seems to get partial recognition whenever there is no good explanation for what just occurred. No wonder He only sticks His head in the door from time to time in order to make a cameo appearance.
Note: YAHSHUA was immaculately conceived and born of a virgin. In other words, He was the only begotten SON of the Father by Holy Spirit.
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:18 NKJV

When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:16-17 NKJV
And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’
John 1:32-33 NKJV
Note: YAHSHUA was led and directed by HOLY SPIRIT.
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights,stones afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” Matthew 4:1-11 NKJV
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
Psalms 33:6 NKJV
God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Revelation 12:10-11 NKJV
The TRUTH concerning the person and work of HOLY SPIRIT has been obfuscated or kept from this generation. It has led to a mass exodus that has resulted in a prolonged period of time in the wilderness for many people. Many of them are on a personal quest for TRUTH. Unfortunately, most of them are alienated from the common wealth of Israel, and some of them are all but cut off from the household of faith.
Note: According to statistics, 1/3 of those who are numbered among the millennias of this generation…(30 years and under) are professed ATHEIST.
Note: There are ‘Church Type’ ministries who are evangelizing and proselytizing the disenfranchised segment of our society.
A real encounter with the only true and living Elohim. That will include coming to a saving knowledge of the truth, and being born again of the Spirit.
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 NKJV
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
John 3:3, 5-8 NKJV
