- The Spirit (rûaḥ) of God has made me, And the breath (rûaḥ) of the Almighty gives me life. - Job 33:4
In Job 33:4, the Hebrew term for Spirit and breath are the same — rûaḥ. The term itself refers to something immaterial and when applied to humanity, depicts the consciousness of man. That God is a spirit or rûaḥ means that He is immaterial, that is He lacks flesh and bone. Nonetheless, He is very much real and alive. As well, the Spirit is omnipotent or all-powerful and He created humanity and gave life to humanity. Because the Holy Spirit is omnipotent, He is known as the Spirit of Strength.
- The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. - Isaiah 11:2
That the Holy Spirit is God means that He possesses omnipresence. Omnipresence means that God is all-present or present everywhere at once. Because the Spirit is eternal, He is not bound by time. Because He is the Creator, the Spirit is not by bound space. Therefore, He can be present to the entirety of creation and its various parts. Because the Holy Spirit is omnipresent, there is nowhere that one can go to escape His presence.
- Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. - Psalm 139:7-10
