    ..... have a Bride?

    God the Father has Israel as His Bride.

    God the Son has the Church as His Bride.

    It would seem logical that God the Holy Spirit would also have a Bride, but I've never heard of Him having one.

    Does the HS have a Bride?

    Yes he has one, but it's the same one God the Son and God the father has. It's called the church.

    Nope, as He is the Lone ranger of the Holy Trinity!

    Is not the Holy Spirit part of the Trinity, all for one and one for all?

    Is not the Holy Spirit called the Spirit of God, thus making whoever is the bride of God, the bride of the Spirit of God.

    Is not the Holy Spirit called the Spirit of Christ, thus making whoever is the bride of Christ, the bride of the Spirit of Christ.

    So the answer is yes and to deny it is to deny the Trinity!

    Revelation 22:17

    I did NOT deny that the Holy spirit is God, just that He does not have assigned to Him a bride as the father and Jesus have!

    Does the Bible ever state that God called Israel His bride?

    The Church as it is in this time is referred to as Christ's body.

    It is not until AFTER the final judgment that Christ presents to the Father His Bride.

    There is no mention of the Holy Spirit in the new heaven and earth.

    So where do you think He is at that point?

    I think the Old Testament book of Hosea might refresh us.

    For example Hosea 2:19, presents God's covenant with Israel as to be betrothed, i.e. future bride. But as you know, the whole idea is an illustration using Hosea's wife, unfaithful Gomer, to demonstrate unfaithful Israel, an adulterous people.

    So it is fair to say the OT does present Israel as a lousy wife of God, but God is a great and faithful husband, never forsaking His covenant of love.

    What do we make of Revelation 22:17 if the Spirit says come?
