(THIS IS NOT SPEAKING OF THE TRINITY.)
Ephesians 3: 2-6 PAUL WRITES:
Surely you have heard about the ADMINISTRATION of God’s grace that was given TO ME for YOU. That is, the MYSTERY made known to ME by revelation……. you will be able to UNDERSTAND MY INSIGHT into the MYSTERY OF CHRIST, which was NOT MADE KNOWN to men in other generations AS IT HAS NOW BEEN REVEALED BY THE SPIRIT TO God’s holy apostles and prophets. THIS MYSTERY is that THROUGH THE GOSPEL THE GENTILES ARE HEIRS TOGETHER WITH ISRAEL, MEMBERS TOGETHER OF
(To Be “In Christ”)
AND SHARERS TOGETHER IN THE PROMISE IN CHRIST JESUS.
Malachi 3: 1 THE MESSENGER HAS COME.
THE MYSTERY REVEALED AND UNDERSTOOD.
Note: All the Promises in the Old Testament in regard to THE GIVING OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE POUING OUT BY CHRIST AT PENTECOST, AND THE SPRINKLING OF THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST, BY GOD THE FATHER are NOW for the Gentiles as well.

GOD THE FATHER THERE ARE SEVEN OUTLETS OF THIS ONE SOURCE.
IS:- IN US These speak of THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD.
OVER US Rev. 1: 4 Rev. 4: 2-11 Rev. 3: 1
THROUGH US. (Christ Baptises us with God’s Spirit and His Fullness.)
Eph. 4: 5-6
THE TERM OF ONE SPIRIT, IS PAUL EMPHASIZING THE TRUE FACT THAT IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO HAVE CHRIST’S SPIRIT ONLY. WE MUST GO ON.
WE MUST BE BAPTISED BY CHRIST INTO HIS FATHER’S SPIRIT, SO THAT WE GAIN ENTRANCE INTO THE ONE BODY. NO OTHER ONE, NO OTHER PERSON CAN GIVE US ENTRANCE. ONLY GOD THE FATHER. WE MUST BE IN THIS ONE AND ONLY SPIRIT OF GOD, TO ENTER THE ONE BODY. NO OTHER PERSON THAN GOD HIMSELF CAN GIVE THIS ENTRANCE.
THERE IS THEREFORE ONE SPIRIT (OR PERSON BY HIS SPIRIT) WHO CAN DO THIS WORK.
THEN CHRIST BUILDS THOSE WHO ARE IN THE ONE BODY INTO THE TEMPLE OF GOD.
