Active-Force-Directed Organization vs. The Holy Spirit (Part 1)

 

The following is just a small sampling. There is much more to this that meets the eye. More to come.

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
Genesis 1:2 - New International Version

Now the earth was formless and desolate, and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God’s active force was moving about over the surface of the waters.
Genesis 1:2 - New World Translation

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
John 14:16-17 - New International Version

And I will ask the Father and he will give you another helper to be with you forever, [God's active force] of the truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither sees it nor knows it. You know it, because it remains with you
John 14:16-17 - A Paraphrase of the New World Translation

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
John 16:13-15 - New International Version

However, when that one comes, [God's active force] of the truth, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak of his own initiative, but what he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things to come. That one [that thing] will glorify me, because he will receive from what is mine and will declare it to you. All the things that the Father has are mine. That is why I said he [God's active force] receives from what is mine and declares it to you.
John 16:13-15 - A Paraphrase of the New World Translation

Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of [God's active force],

Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?
Acts 5:3 - New International Version

But Peter said: “Ananias, why has Satan emboldened you to lie to [God's active force] and secretly hold back some of the price of the field?
Acts 5:3 - A Paraphrase of the New World Translation

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
Romans 8:26 - New International Version

In like manner, the spirit also joins in with help for our weakness; for the problem is that we do not know what we should pray for as we need to, but [God's active force] itself pleads for us with unuttered groanings.
Romans 8:26 - A Paraphrase of the New World Translation

As they were ministering to Jehovah and fasting, [God's active force] said: “Set aside for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So these men, sent out by [God's active force], went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed away to Cyprus.
