[quote=bengeorge]Since Christ is God-made-Man, is the Holy Spirit God-made-Angel?
In the same way that Christ is 100% human and 100% divine, is the Holy Spirit 100% angelic and 100% divine?
There are no Scriptural or Traditional sources that support the notion that the Spirit has partaken of the angelic races. In the Godhead, only the Son emptied Himself to incarnate into a creature (Philippians 2:5-11). The sole purpose was to redeem what was lost by the human race. Since we know that angels have no second chance to redemption, this speaks against anyone in God incarnating into an angel (2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Matthew 25:41).
However, prior to the Incarnation, the Son seems to have appeared in the form of an angel on various occasions according to some theologians (based on Genesis 22:1, 2, 10-12, 15-18; Exodus 3:2-20; Judges 13:18 compared with Isaiah 9:6; etc.). We are not to understand that the Son was an angel according to His nature, only that He took on a role of being a messenger which is another rendering of the word ‘angel.’ This interpretation is found in early Christian writings.
Other Scripture appears to be against the interpretation that it was the Son that materialized in those Old Testament episodes since He came to reveal through the New Testament for the first time (Hebrews 1:1, 2; see also Acts 7:53; Galatians 3:19; Hebrews 2:2). We find evidence that God simply used angels as true messengers carrying His Words and speaking in His Name (Numbers 20:16; Judges 2:1-5; 1 Kings 13:18) as He did with the prophets (Judges 6:7-10; etc.).
In the end, Scripture is clear that God has at no time taken hold of the angelic race, in other words has not incarnated into an angel (Hebrews 1:3-14, NASB):
3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.
5For to which of the angels did He ever say,
“YOU ARE MY SON,
TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU”?
“)I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM
AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME"?
6And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says,
“AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM."
7And of the angels He says,
"WHO MAKES HIS ANGELS WINDS,
AND HIS MINISTERS A FLAME OF FIRE."
8But of the Son He says,
"YOUR THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER,
AND THE RIGHTEOUS SCEPTER IS THE SCEPTER OF HIS KINGDOM.
9”YOU HAVE LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HATED LAWLESSNESS;
THEREFORE GOD, YOUR GOD, HAS ANOINTED YOU
WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS ABOVE YOUR COMPANIONS."
“YOU, LORD, IN THE BEGINNING LAID THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH,
AND THE HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS;
11THEY WILL PERISH, BUT YOU REMAIN;
AND THEY ALL WILL BECOME OLD LIKE A GARMENT,
12AND LIKE A MANTLE YOU WILL ROLL THEM UP;
LIKE A GARMENT THEY WILL ALSO BE CHANGED
BUT YOU ARE THE SAME,
AND YOUR YEARS WILL NOT COME TO AN END.“
13But to which of the angels has He ever said,
“SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND,
UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES
A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET”?
14Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?
The passage clearly indicates that the Son is God and Lord (verse 8 and 10) which all angels must worship (verse 6). He is also clearly not an angel in that God the Father at no time said to an angel, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you” or “I will be a Father to Him and He shall be a Son to me” (verse 5) or “Sit at my right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet” (verse 13) for they are merely ministering spirits.
And more directly (Hebrews 2:14-18, DR):
14Therefore because the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself in like manner hath been partaker of the same: that, through death, he might destroy him who had the empire of death, that is to say, the devil:
15And might deliver them, who through the fear of death were all their lifetime subject to servitude.
16For no where doth he take hold of the angels: but of the seed of Abraham he taketh hold.
17Wherefore, it behoved him in all things to be made like unto his brethren, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest before God, that he might be a propitiation for the sins of the people.
18For in that wherein he himself hath suffered and been tempted he is able to succour them also that are tempted.
