Jesus said that the holy spirit would not act or even speak independently but would only act in fulfillment of the his instructions:
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will
guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but
whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you
things to come.
A search in the KJV for the term "will of God" in Paul's writings turns up quite a few entries. Apparently Paul was very concerned with the will of God:
Mar_3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my
brother, and my sister, and mother. Act_13:36 For David, after he had
served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was
laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: Rom_1:10 Making request,
if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the
will of God to come unto you. Rom_8:27 And he that searcheth the
hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh
intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Rom_12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and
acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom_15:32 That I may come unto
you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.
1Co_1:1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the
will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Co_1:1 Paul, an apostle of
Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the
church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in
all Achaia: 2Co_8:5 And this they did, not as we hoped, but first
gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.
Gal_1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from
this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
Eph_1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the
saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
Eph_6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of
Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; Col_1:1 Paul, an
apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,
Col_4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth
you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand
perfect and complete in all the will of God. 1Th_4:3 For this is the
will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from
fornication: 1Th_5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the
will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 2Ti_1:1 Paul, an apostle
of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life
which is in Christ Jesus, Heb_10:36 For ye have need of patience,
that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the
promise. 1Pe_2:15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye
may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 1Pe_3:17 For it is
better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than
for evil doing. 1Pe_4:2 That he no longer should live the rest of his
time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
1Pe_4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God
commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a
faithful Creator. 1Jn_2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust
thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
However a search for "will of the holy spirit" and "will of the spirit" does not turn up any entries. Apparently Paul was not interested in the will of the spirit except for the fact that the spirit always does the will of God and furthers the will of God in the believers:
Rom_8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of
the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to
the will of God.
The will of Christ likewise is of little interest in the scriptures except that Christ also "accords" with the will of God:
Mat_26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and
prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from
me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. Luk_22:42 Saying,
Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not
my will, but thine, be done. Joh_5:30 I can of mine own self do
nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek
not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
The deep yearning in the heart of every Trinitarian is to find verses in the scripture that place the "Holy Ghost" as a separate but equal partner in a pantheon of Gods that they refer to as "the Godhead". But the scriptures never speak of such a pantheon but instead have one almighty God and every other entity in the universe and beyond is his servant:
Joh_4:34, Joh_6:38, Joh_8:50, Joh_17:4, Joh_18:11; Psa_40:7-8;
Mat_26:39; Rom_15:3; Hos_10:7-10
The father alone is the true and living God, the Most High and the Almighty. However he operates through his Christ and the holy breath:
1Co_8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of [that is
"from"] whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ,
by [that is, "through"] whom are all things, and we by him.
God operates through:
- his messiah (who is also his son)
- his breath (which is an intelligent organ)
Any notion that the spirit of God or the son of God operates on their own is ignorant, blasphemous and creed-driven, not scriptural. Everything that the messiah and the "holy spirit" do is done in obedience to God and for the glory of God.
