This thread is intended to give a Christian biblical perspective on spiritual orbs. This topic would be open to discussion and debate among Christians. I will proceed to demonstrate how these spiritual orbs are supernatural and divine. The orb photographs and video I will be presenting are of the Holy Spirit and some of His works. These photographs and videos have been a mystery to mankind for decades. The Holy Spirit is highly misunderstood in the world. Many have seen Him, but few have recognized Him. He is erroneously known as spirit orbs, angel orbs, and ghost orbs. Many who have not seen these supernatural orbs with their naked eyes believe them to be photographic anomalies and pareidolia. To understand the Holy Spirit, we must consult scripture. I will be using both the old and new testaments of the Holy Bible.
The Spirit of truth, Spirit of God, and Spirit are all one and the same Holy Spirit.
Not only is the world as a whole visually unable to identify the Holy Spirit, His acts go unnoticed as well.
John 14:17. the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him,...
NKJV Scholastic Commentary: Neither sees Him nor knows Him does not mean merely that the world is not able to visually identify the Holy Spirit because He is spirit. Something more is meant. The Spirit of God is active in the world, but His acts go unnoticed by the world (see 1 Cor. 2:14).
Identifying the Holy Spirit in His spiritual bodily form
This is a photograph of the Holy Spirit descending like a dove.
Below is a photograph of the Holy Spirit in His spiritual bodily form and motionless.
This is a painting showing the Holy Spirit over the head of Saint Andrew.
The Halo is found in scripture as the Holy Spirit in His spiritual bodily form alighting and remaining upon Jesus.
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 as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him."
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 in His spiritual bodily form alighting and remaining upon Jesus appeared as a Halo.
My thoughts on the Halo
The Spirit of God seems to be revealing to us appearing as a Halo that He is the breathe of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God.
This is not to be confused with the life Christ gives us through the Spirit of truth.
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 we 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.
