Question: 'By this we mean that He was a powerful, omnipresent, intelligent Being.' On this statement do you agree that the Spirit even before adding flesh is a separete being from the flesh and is living?

Answer: Absolutely not. The flesh is the manifestation of the Spirit (1 Timothy 3:16). The flesh is the image of the Spirit (Colossians 1:15). In the flesh dwells all the fulness of the Spirit in bodily form (Colossians 2:9). The flesh did not consider it robbery to be equal to the Spirit (Philippians 2:6). If you have seen the flesh, you have seen the Spirit (John 14:9). The blood that poured from the flesh was God's 'own blood' (Acts 20:28). No, the Spirit and the flesh are not two seperate beings. They can be distiguished just as the human spirit can be distinguished from the human flesh. But they are not separate, for God is one! (Deuteronomy 6:4).
