through closed doors. But, in his state of humiliation, he was subject to the Holy Spirit.
In <400316>Matthew 3:16, the anointing of the Spirit at his baptism was not the descent of a material dove (?as a dove?). The dove-like appearance was only the outward sign of the coming forth of the Holy Spirit from the depths of his being and pouring itself like a flood into his divine-human consciousness. <430334>John 3:34 ? ?for he giveth not the Spirit by measure?; <440102> Acts 1:2 ? ?after that he had given commandment through the Holy Spirit unto the apostles?; 10:33 ? ?Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him?;
<580914> Hebrews 9:14 ? ?the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish unto God.?
When permitted by the Holy Spirit, he knew, taught, and wrought as God: <401702> Matthew 17:2 ? ?he was transfigured before them?; <410541>Mark 5:41 ? ?Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise?; <420520>Luke 5:20, 21 ? ?Man, thy sins are forgiven thee...Who can forgive sins, but God alone??; <420619>Luke 6:19 ? ?power came forth from him, and healed them all?; <430211>John 2:11 ? ?This beginning of his signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory?; 24, 25 ? ?he knew all men...he himself knew what was in a man?; 3:13 ? ?the Son of man, who is in heaven?

<430313> John 3:13]; 20:19 ? ?when the doors were shut...Jesus came and stood in the midst.?
Christ is the ?servant of Jehovah? ( <234201>Isaiah 42:1-7; 49:1-12; 52:13; 53:11) and the meaning of pai~v ( <440313>Acts 3:13, 26; 4:2; 30) is not ?child? or ?Son?; it is ?servant,? as in the Revised Version. But, in the state of exaltation, Christ is the ?Lord of the Spirit? ( <470318>2 Corinthians 3:18 ? Meyer), giving the Spirit; John l6:7 ? ?I will send him unto you?, present in the Spirit; ( <431418>John 14:18 ? ?I come unto you?; <402820>Matthew 28:20 ? ?I am with you always, even unto the end of the world?, and working through the Spirit; <461545>1 Corinthians 15:45 ? ?The last Adam became a life-giving spirit?; <470317>2 Corinthians 3:17 ? ?Now the Lord is the Spirit?.
