The Pastoral letters add little to the teaching of the acknowledged Sha'ul
At I Timtheous 3:16 " And without controversy great is the wonders of reverence for HIS character and Law: YAHWEH was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Ruach, seen of malakim, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into grandeur." a liturgical fragment, YAHSHUA'S vindication "in the Ruach"-i.e., in respect of the operation in HIM of the Ruach of YAHWEH-is contrasted with HIS manifestation in the flesh-i.e., in the conditions of HIS human life and death.
By the Ruach prophetic guidance is available to the assembly (I Timtheous 4:1), and the indwelling Ruach enables the truth of YAHWEH's Way to be preserved inviolate. II Timtheous1:14 "That good thing which was committed unto you keep by the Ruach Ha Kodesh which dwells in us." Regeneration and renewal in the Ruach Ha Kodesh - that is to say, the new life in the Ruach - is effected for all SetApart ones through the baptismal washing subject.
The Ruach speaks through the Scriptures, Ivrim 3:7 Wherefore (as the Ruach Ha Kodesh saith, To day if you will hear HIS voice," Ivrim 10:15 "Whereof the Ruach Ha Kodesh also is a witness to us: for after that HE had said before," sometimes through interpretation of the Old Covenant. Ivrim 9:8 " The Ruach Ha Kodesh this signifying, that the way into Qadash of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:"
It was through the Ruach that YAHSHUA carried out HIS self-offering to YAHWEH; Ivrim 9:14 " How much more shall the blood of MESSIYAH, WHO through the eternal Ruach offered HIMSELF without spot to YAHWEH, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living YAHWEH? "
SetApart ones become partakers of the Ruach through their baptism; Ivrim 6:4 "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Ruach Ha Kodesh".
Apostasy an outrage against the Ruach of unmerited favor
Apostasy is an outrage against the Ruach of unmerited favor; Ivrim 10:29 "Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall HE be thought worthy, who had trodden under foot the Son of YAHWEH, and had counted the blood of the Covenant, wherewith HE was set-apart, an unQadash thing, and has done despite unto the Ruach of unmerited favor? "
And the special gifts of the Ruach authenticate the assembly's preaching. Ivrim 2:4 " YAHWEH also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Ruach Ha Kodesh, according to HIS own will?
I Kepha mentions the inspirations of the prophets to speak of YAHSHUA, they were filled by the Ruach of YAHSHUA even under the Old Covenant. I Kepha 1:11 " Searching what, or what manner of time the Ruach of MESSIYAH, which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of MESSIYAH, and the unmerited favor that should follow."
It also speaks of the set-apartness of SetApart ones by the Ruach to be the people of YAHWEH. I Kepha 1:2 "Elect according to the foreknowledge of YAHWEH our ABBA, through set-apartness of the Ruach, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of YAHSHUA the MESSIYAH: Love unto you, and peace, be multiplied."
II Kepha contributes a very definite affirmation of the inspiration of the Old Covenant prophecies by the Ruach: "Men moved by the Ruach Ha Kodesh spoke from YAHWEH." II Kepha 1:21 "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but Qadash men of YAHWEH spoke as they were moved by the Ruach Ha Kodesh."
