    Disciple the mystery of the kingdom of God is Christ in you thus our new inner man is the H.G He says i will baptise you with the H.G and fire. When he breathed on them they received tHE H./G. simply b/c his breath was his word.his seed. the H.G. is the multiplication of christ in us via his seed. THATS Y HE REFERS TO HE H.G AS THE PROMISE.THAT PROMISE BEING THE VERY MULTIPILCATION OF CHRIST IN US

    The Holy Ghost is not the new inner man, but the Spirit of God given into our hearts for OUR new life in Christ. We are the heirs of Salvation; and the outward vessels appointed by God to confirm His testimony of Christ, and the Spirit's striving with men to convict them of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. Some friendly advice:) 'spiritualising' Scriptures as a methodology is not spiritual!
