Distinctions

Is the Holy Spirit like the spirits of human beings and angels?

Compared to the Holy Spirit, the human spirit is not a separate entity from the human being. Human beings are comprised of two parts: a physical body and a spirit. In contrast, the Spirit of God is an entity by Itself without a physical body (Ezek 36:25-28; John 14:26).

Compared to the Holy Spirit, angels are similar in that they are both spirit beings without a physical body; however, the Holy Spirit is not a type of angel nor created as angels were.

The phrase "the Angel of the Lord" is not a type of angel; instead it is a title reserved for the pre-incarnate form of Jesus Christ.
