I am a Catholic Mystic. I have seen the Holy Spirit many times and within this thread I have identified Him and some of His works.

The photographs that I will be presenting are of the Holy Spirit and a chariot of God. These photographs have been a mystery to mankind for decades. The Holy Spirit and His works are erroneously known as spirit orbs and angel orbs. He is highly misunderstood in the world. To understand the Holy Spirit and chariots of God we must consult scripture. I will be using both the old and new testaments of the Holy Bible.

2 Corinthians 4:18. while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.


Identifying the Holy Spirit in bodily form

Notice how the photograph below looks like the Halo.



The Halo is in scripture as the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) alighting and remaining upon Jesus in bodily form.

Mathew 3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

John 1:32. John testified saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him."

The photograph at top is of the Holy Spirit in bodily form.

Luke 3:22. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased."

The Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus in bodily form appeared as a Halo.


My thoughts on the Halo

The Spirit of God appears to revealing to us through the Halo is that He is the breathe of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God.

Genesis 2:7. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breathe of life; and man became a living being.

The term "Spirit" translates the Hebrew word ruah which in it's primary sense, means breathe, air, wind.

I believe that the breathe of life went into man's nostrils and is located over and throughout the brain giving us life. Hence, the Halo is over the head, representing the Spirit of God giving us life in this world. And without the breathe of life, the brain would not function and we would have no life in this world. The breathe of life is connected to our spirits by the silver cord. When the silver cord is loosed, we are cut off from the breathe of life, the brain dies, we become disconnected from our bodies, and are no longer part of this visible world.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7. Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

I believe that the Halo would be the Spirit of God's rightful place in revealing to us that He is the breathe of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God and thus the Halo does not have to be limited to Christianity.


Chariots of God

Artist rendition of Ezekiel's Vision of God (based on scripture).


What you are looking at above appearing before Ezekiel, a beloved prophet of the Holy Bible, is Father God on His throne, Cherubim (living creatures), and what Ezekiel describes as "a wheel in the middle of a wheel" - this appears to be an orbital description of the Holy Spirit Himself as a great living chariot of God.

Excerpt from, "Ezekiel's Vision of God" -

Ezekiel 1:15-21. Now as I look at the living creatures, behold, a wheel was on the earth beside each living creature with it's four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their workings was like the color of beryl, and all four had the same likeness. The appearance of their workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they moved, they went toward any one of four directions; they did not turn aside when they went. As for the rims, they were so high they were awesome, and their rims were full of eyes, all around the four of them. When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit went, and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When those went, these went, when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.

Below is a photograph of a spirit in one of the many small chariots of God.


Ezekiel 1:21. "for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels."

........................"for the spirit of the living creature is in the orb."

Ezekiel 1:19. "and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up."

........................"and when the living creature was lifted up from the earth, the orb was lifted up."


The many chariots of God are the living works of the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 68:17. The chariots of God are twenty thousands, Even thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy Place.

these "orbs" have not been a mystery for a long time, if ever.

they are especially common with compact or ultra-compact cameras, where the short distance between the lens and the built-in flash decreases the angle of light reflection to the lens, directly illuminating the aspect of the particles facing the lens and increasing the camera's ability to capture the light reflected off normally sub-visible particles.

they can result from retroreflection of light off solid particles (e.g., dust, pollen), liquid particles (water droplets, especially rain) or other foreign material within the camera lens.

there is even a device known as a DEVA (Dust Eliminating Video Apparatus), which fits on to a camera and all but eliminates the appearance of these artifacts.

you are obviously welcome to hold the opinion you do, however you must realise that the explanation that these artifacts are the "holy spirit" is not based on sound logic or critical reasoning.

The Holy Ghost/Spirit dwells in every believer it is the earnest given the believer until they are redeemed. To see the Holy Spirit is to see a believer and vise versa. The Holy Ghost is never said to manifest in any bodily shape or form.

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

Ephesian 1:13, 14 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

2 Timothy 1:14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

Please notice how the photograph at top resembles an eyeball.


The photograph at top is the Spirit of truth (Holy Spirit) looking directly at the camera man and bearing witness to him taking the photograph.

1 John 5:6. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.


The Holy Spirit also bears witness to our consciousness.

Romans 9:1. I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit.


It is through the Spirit that the Father and His Son Jesus hear our cries.

Romans 8:26. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning's which cannot be uttered.


God demonstrates His presence here on earth through the eyes of the Lord.

2 Chronicles 16:9. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

Psalm 34:15. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.

Psalm 33:18_19. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who hope in His mercy. To deliver their soul from death,


The Holy Spirit glorifies Christ

The Spirit of truth bears witness to the indwelt Spirit of Christ in the Christian.

The Spirit of truth glorifies Christ by bearing witness that we belong to Christ and declaring this to the Apostles who sit on the thrones of judgment so that we are not judged and may go onto the Father.

Jesus said to the Apostles -

John 16:13. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

This is how Christ builds His kingdom through the Holy Spirit here on earth.

Romans 8:16. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.

I am not referring to any photo anomaly called an orb, dust, reflection, rain, snow, or otherwise. I am referring to the very real spiritual entity commonly called a spirit orb or angel orb. Here is a great number of testimonies of people who have seen this spiritual manifestation with their naked eyes, removing the camera all together.

According to Catholic Information, "the Halo is symbolic of divinity and supreme power. Divinity means of, or pertaining to God. The Holy Spirit is God, the third person of the Holy Trinity.

Oops.

Luke 3:22: "and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."


Regardless, the point stands that this is indeed just dust.
I honestly wish, as a Christian, that threads like this didn't always pop up. Honestly, they're embarrassing. I stand absolutely upon the foundation of the Bible as the inspired, infallible Word of God...
...but that doesn't mean that every dust particle is a representation of the Holy Spirit or angelic being. This is just... illogical and, in all honesty, foolish.

ECC 12:7. And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Yes, the photos just show that all the dust around us is just dead, decomposed matter. And the Bible agrees with this as stated above. Case solved. LOL orbs of dust, very mysterious.

In those two lines from the Bible it really sums up how important our material bodies really are.

oh i do apologise, i thought you were referring to them as you have repeatedly included photographs of them to which you refer.. it's a shame these stories you link to provide no evidence, can not be verified, and are essentially woo.

i'm afraid i have noticed how the photograph at top resembles a "photo anomaly called an orb, dust, reflection, rain, snow, or otherwise", a lot more so than an eyeball.. yes it is circular and so are eyeballs, i grant you, but why would the holy spirit need to manifest as tiny floating eyeballs in order to bear witness?

As with us, it is actually the center point, referred to as a pupil, which He sees us. It is through this Spirit that God and His Son Jesus see us and hear our thoughts and prayers.

Elijah Ascends to Heaven

2 KINGS 2:1. And when it came to pass, when the LORD was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind,...

Elijah would have traveled through a spiritual whirlwind (tunnel) on his way to heaven.

Here is a picture of a physical whirlwind.


2 KINGS 2:11. ...Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Now hold on, first you said it was a halo, now you're saying it's an eyeball? So which is it? Actually, don't answer that. It's obvious to everyone (except you) that it's dust.

As for the halo, you couldn't be more wrong. First of all, there isn't a single reference or description of a halo, as depicted in religious art, anywhere in the Bible. Had you actually read it, you would know that.

As for the symbol of a halo itself, it's not a Christian symbol, and never was. It comes from the Zoroastrian idea of "Farr" (meaning 'divine favor'), which was symbolized by a ring, called Hvrena, that was given to the king by the gods. The 'glowing' aspect of it came from association with Hvrena's overseer, the sun god Mithras. When Mithraism spread to the Roman empire, Hvrena was commonly depicted as a halo on Mithras' head, then Christianity came along and co-opted the symbol. It has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity, the Bible, or the Holy Spirit, much like your dust particles.

The Holy Spirit is God the third person of the Holy Trinity. As such, one of the attributes that He would share with the Father and Son is that He goes unchanging. He is still appearing in bodily form.

I personally believe that the Halo represents the Holy Spirit as the breathe of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God and as such is not limited to Christianity.

Thank you for your post.

I think the graphics are wonderful, especially that artist's depiction of Ezekiel's wheel.

In view of the indisputable fact that we as human beings don't know everything, I won't speculate as to whether orbs are the Holy Spirit or not, but I will say this: I believe they are beings that are fully conscious. The folks who are talking about dust and camera lenses really do not have a clue as to what you are referring to, and I'm sure they don't even want to know. You ought to address your post to those with spiritual interests alone, or the pixel people will continue to have at you.

Peace.
