The Anointing of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit - power, authority and communication

Masculine and feminine, love and power 

Wholeness, unity

The Holy Spirit is the term for the Spirit of God.
God is whole / holy / sacred in himself. Thus God is also one, namely unity and reconciliation.
The word "holy" means "whole" or "made whole", and "holiness" thus stands for wholeness.

This divine wholeness and unity is expressed in the Holy Spirit, in which the masculine and feminine sides of the spirit are fused into one.
Thus the life force in matter represents the masculine side of the spirit, while love stands for the feminine.

The Spirit of God in Jewish Tradition: RUACH

The Hebrew word for spirit is RUACH. It echoes onomatopoeically the word "breath" for breath of air or breath of life. This is one of the meanings of the word, which has been translated in many ways in the Bible. Here are some of them:

RUACH is translated among other things as:
(198 times), wind (61), the (23), I (20), breath (11), breath (13), winds (11), snort (5), I (4), air (3), wrath(3), courage (2), the(1).[1]

Genus of RUACH: male or female

The Hebrew word for spirit RUACH is used in the masculine or feminine form, depending on its meaning and function. In the Tanakh the word occurs 387 times, in 200 of which it is used in grammatically feminine form, in 63 cases in masculine (the rest is unclear) [2].

The Holy Spirit in the Jewish and Christian tradition

Whereas according to Jewish tradition the Spirit of God had previously only come upon a few chosen people, according to Christian doctrine it came upon all who believe at Pentecost. The first Christians thus saw the prophecy of the Jewish tradition (the Old Testament) fulfilled:

[It shall come to pass,] that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. (Joel 3:1)

Likewise, on the 50th day after Jesus' resurrection, the promise was fulfilled that he would send the Holy Spirit to continue to guide, teach, comfort, assist and empower his disciples:

But when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak from himself, but what he hears he will speak, and what is coming he will proclaim to you. (John 16:13)

The Coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost

Christian tradition tells us that on Pentecost, 50 days after Easter, people from all over the world gathered for the Jewish feast of Shavuot. The Spirit of God manifested itself in a roaring storm wind that filled the room and in flames of fire that spread to those praying. Thus these foreign languages began to praise God. No less amazing was that each of those present heard them in their own mother tongue (more on this below).

Unity of the masculine and feminine sides of the spirit

In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the Spirit of God appears with both male and female qualities of spiritual power.

  • The masculine side of the spirit - life force in matter - appears as storm wind and fire. Fire is the element of the male body and stands for powerful passion, and air, the element of the male soul, has become the storm wind.
  • The feminine side of the spirit - love - includes communication, understanding, wisdom, truth, caring, acceptance and encouragement.


Wholeness through Integration of the opposite-sex parts (SPIRIT, black)

The divine wholeness, male and female, shows itself in the unity of the great FATHER and the great MOTHER. These "great-parents" are in the mature age and thus in the third phase of life. They have taken the spirit and the opposite-sex personality parts on the path through the underworld (black, see below), and in doing so have overcome death (the ego). Thus they have reached the fullness of the spirit.

Unity of the great Father (Love) with the great Mother (Life)

Also on the divine level of the Holy Spirit, the love of the Father and the power of the Mother are fused into unity.

[S. God, Wholeness, 3-in-1, Male and Female, The Holy Wedding and the following account].

Wholeness, male and female, 3-in-1

The Great Father: Love, Mercy and Creative Word

The Great FATHER has integrated LOVE and warm-heartedness with his feminine personality parts (the "inner daughter", anima as VIRGIN). His traits are correspondingly characterised by the tender breath of wisdom and understanding, by caring, understanding, encouragement, and by the love of care, understanding, encouragement and mercy.

The Great MOTHER: Forces of Nature and Destiny

The Great MOTHER has integrated POWER and drive with her masculine personality parts (the "inner son", Animus as MESSIAS/CHRIST). She forms the life force in matter, gives growth, storms in the forces of nature or judges as fate in life circumstances which can also appear hard. This side of the spirit thus includes the storm wind, wild snorting, fire, power, courage, justice and also wrath of God.

The Holy Spirit and authority over matter

The kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and new reality

The Holy Spirit as unity of spirit and matter enables the creation of new reality. For when love is given, living matter ("MOTHER") readily translates the impulse of loving consciousness ("FATHER") into new, living and material reality. Thus the MOTHER is the kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father (see The Prayer Our Father and Father and Mother, Spirit and Matter).

Anointing and authority

The human being who has won his self and is reconciled wholly within himself, thus also carries the spirit of holiness and wholeness within himself, so that he is identified with Christ / Messiah, the Anointed One. Therefore, authority over matter is also given to him.

So said Jesus:

Verily, verily, I say unto you: He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father(John 14:12).

The Holy Spirit at Pentecost: storm wind, fire, languages

50 days after Easter: New strength at last!

Pentecost takes place 50 days after Easter. The number 50 signifies the final overcoming of the negative dynamics in matter and thus the breakthrough to spiritual power and authority.

[S. Overcoming in temptations and The temptations of Jesus.]

The Number 50: Breakthrough to Fullness

Overcoming 49 aspects of negative dynamics

The number fifty represents the completed overcoming of the negative dynamics of power in matter. It occurs in Jewish tradition at the Pentecost festival "Shavuot" 50 days after Passover as well as at the "Jubilee Year", in which after every 50 years a family received back the land it had lost.

The 50 means the completed overcoming of the negative dynamic with its 10 factors in each of the 4 elements (= 40) plus another 10 for overcoming in the realm of the spirit (10 as the number of the ego in the dynamic of power). (See also The Overcoming of the Double Negative Dynamic), white-black, as thematised in "50 Shades of Gray").   

50 also follows 49 = 7 x 7 and thus represents the completed creation (7) exponentiated (s. The Seven - Wholeness of Earthly Reality). The 49 symbolically contains everything that man must overcome in his life in order to penetrate to fullness. 

The Pentecost event: perceptible, miracle-working power

The Bible reports a powerful manifestation of the Holy Spirit. On the occasion of the Jewish festival of Pentecost, Shavuot, people from all over the world were gathered in Jerusalem. Strange things happened ...

Storm wind, fire and languages

From the Acts of John (chapter 2; [4]):

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a mighty tempest, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues as of fire, and sat upon every one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to preach in other tongues, as the Spirit commanded them to speak. [...]

The "hearing miracle": hearing and understanding

But they were all amazed and marvelled, saying, Behold, are not all these that speak Galileans? How can it be that we hear them in our own dialect, in which we were born? (We are Parthians and Medes and Elamites, from Mesopotamia and Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia and Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the regions of Libya towards Cyrene ...). The Romans who are here, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs - we all hear them speaking of the great deeds of God in our own language. How is that possible?! 

Manifestation of the forces male and female

A STORMWIND of spirit-enhancement!

The Pentecost event in the Bible is portrayed as a clear manifestation of the feminine and masculine sides of God.

FIRE, the male primal energy: burning passion

Now that those present no longer had their Rabbi, their beloved Master, with them, they were suddenly seized by a new, fiery enthusiasm. This fulfilled what he had promised them. He had instructed them to stay in the city and wait until they would be "clothed" with power from on high, through a strong spiritual force as a support. [5].

The burning passion that filled the disciples was accompanied by an urge to pass on what had become so important to them and thus to carry seeds of hope out into the world.

Languages (WATER), female: speaking, listening and understanding

Speech is the expression of the (female) soul. Interestingly, the voice of God has repeatedly been described with the sound of great masses of water [6]. (S. also water - feminine.)

People from all over the world were gathered at the Jewish Shavuot. The Pentecost event is described as a miracle of speech and hearing. For while the disciples began to proclaim their messages in languages they had never spoken before, everyone present heard their messages in their own mother tongue!

Pentecost - Abolition of the Babylonian Separation

Communication instead of language confusion

With this extremely successful communication in connection with the work of the Holy Spirit, a great sign was set against the Babylonian confusion of languages, which is thus lifted.

Babylon and the Tower of Power

In the Jewish tradition and the Old Testament of the Bible [7] it is reported that the people of Babylon wanted to build a "tower up to heaven". This is an image of power rather than love that reaches "up to heaven", namely the realm of the spirit.
Thus, the tower to heaven symbolises phallic, invasive male conquering power that does not even shy away from the eternal "divine" orders. This is first glorified in the Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh. (In J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings Sauron's Tower vividly depicts this side of the dark power).

Confusion of language: communication difficulties

If love is missing and power reigns instead, both the connecting element and the desire to understand the other are missing. Any "insights" about how the other person functions are at best used as a means of power to manipulate and dominate. This creates confusion and division among people and communication is no longer of interest.

Fruitful communication as a matter of the heart

Lived love, on the other hand, means accepting the other person as he or she is. It makes it possible to be interested in people in their otherness and to make an effort to meet them where they are. The word communication contains the Latin communio, which means community. Communicatio means communication. In it is the German word "teilen" (to share).
Those who love do not take, but give and share what they have. This also includes empathy, understanding and enthusiasm.

Pentecost: Unity, joy and strength

This attitude to life is expressed according to the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible after the Pentecost event: the disciples lived together in unity and shared everything they had.
Thus, the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost abolished the Babylonian separation in which everyone goes his own way to expand his own power and communication also has to serve the sole purpose of asserting one's own interests at the expense of the other person.

Pentecost brought back the commonalities: shared resources, overflowing joy, contagious enthusiasm and the shared vision for a better world.
