The Holy Spirit Is Not An Angel!

“For what man knows the things of a man except the Spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the Spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”

Memory Verse:

“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4.

Many at times we confuse the Spirit of God with Angels, this isn’t intentional but happens because we don’t possess a good understanding of the level at which the Holy Spirit operates. Angels are on assignment from God! One of its kind is where the Bible tells us about Angel Gabriel delivering the message of the birth of John the Baptist to Elizabeth and Zachariah according to Luke 1:5-25. we also read that an Angel visited Mary Luke 1:26-28, delivering the message of the birth of Jesus. Abraham, Sarah, Daniel are amongst some of the people who had encounters with Angels in the bible.

The Spirit of God operates at the level of God and It may not make sense but the book of first Corinthians chapter two and verse 11 tells us that no one knows the thoughts of anyone except their own Spirit. The Holy Spirit knows what God is thinking before giving instructions to the Angels. Angels cannot read the mind of God but because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, He understands what the mind of God is conceiving before God speaks it in Heaven.

If the Angels knew the mind of God, the devil who was in heaven would have known that God will send him off along with all the falling Angels and he would’ve been able to take actions to try prevent that from happening. That tells us clearly that Angels cannot read the mind of God. David said in the book of Psalms 8:4-5 “What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the Angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.”

The normal human believes that Angels are higher than us, that they have more authority than us. This is true for anyone living according to the flesh but for those who live in the Spirit, God changed that order when He released His Spirit to us.

We now have God inside of us. God’s Spirit in us is able to put us steps ahead. Citing an example, if the Spirit of God is leading me in a different direction than I would’ve loved to drive through and I suddenly hear a breaking news on radio that an accident has just happened on my originally planned route. God’s Spirit inside of me redirected my path and if I had still gone through that path maybe because I was ignoring His Spirit inside of me, there is a chance that God could send an Angel to stop the accident or shield me to protect me from death. So I will see the original reason why I was being redirected; a little similar to Jonah‘s story.

He witnessed the storm, was thrown overboard into the sea, the fish swallowed him but he lived inside of that fish successfully for three days and nights, Jonah chapter 1.

You can be in sync with the will of God if you allow His Spirit to dwell in you.

With God’s Spirit living in you, you are on a new level and the world may not understand you 1Corinthians 2, but you are always a thousand steps ahead of everyone 2Peter3:8.


  • Father I thank you for another wonderful day
  • Thank you for your grace unlimited and for creating me for your own purpose
  • Father forgive my iniquities Lord, help me to live right before you and for you
  • Let me lead a purpose driven life, adhere when you instruct, obey when you direct
  • Help me not to miss my purpose in life and destroy everything working against the fulfillment of my purpose
  • Fill us with your Holyghost and let’s not become a dumping site for the devil and his escapades
  • I rededicate my life to you Lord, accept me and fill me with the Holyghost.
  • Forgive me Lord of all my iniquities, bless me abundantly and make me a blessing unto others, in Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen.
