Notice how Paul understood Isaiah’s words regarding God’s Spirit:
Isaiah 40:13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
Romans 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Considering Paul’s understanding, look at 1 Corinthians 2:11, “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
Some conclude that because Paul does not include the phrase “which is in Him” for God in this verse, that it has deep significance that God doesn’t have the same type of Spirit—as though God’s Spirit can be apart from His being. But can something omitted in such a way define for us the fact that God can be separated from His Spirit? Does that verse allow for a functioning spirit without a body?
The Bible concludes that “the body without the spirit is dead” (James 2:26). The opposite is true as well: the spirit without the body is dead. “God is a spirit,” according to John 4:24, yet He also has a “shape” or a “form” (John 5:37, Philippians 2:6). So, just as man was made in the “image of God” (Genesis 2:26-27), we can conclude that we are like Him in this regard.
The face of God is mentioned throughout the Bible in various ways and reasons: Genesis 32:30, Exodus 33:11, 20-23, Leviticus 17:10, 20:3, 26:27, Numbers 6:25-26, Deuteronomy 5:4, 31:17-18, 34:10, 1 Chronicles 16:11, 2 Chronicles 7:14, 30:9, Job 34:29, Psalm 4:6, 13:1, 22:24, 24:6, 27:9, 30:7, 31:16, 34:16, 44:24, 51:9, 67:1, 69:17, 80:19, 88:14, 102:2, 104:29, 105:4, 119:135, 143:7, Isaiah 8:17, 54:8, 64:7, Jeremiah 18:17, 33:5, Ezekiel 7:22, 14:8, 15:7, 20:35, 39:23-24, 29, Hosea 5:15, Micah 3:4, Matthew 18:10, 1 Corinthians 13:12, 1 Peter 3:12, Revelation 6:16, and more…
Also, according to the Bible, God has hair (Daniel 7:9), eyes (Genesis 6:8), ears (Numbers 14:28), a nose (Isaiah 65:5), nostrils (2 Samuel 22:7-10), a mouth (Deuteronomy 8:3), lips (Psalm 89:34), arms (Isaiah 53:1), a back (Exodus 33:20-23), hands (Joshua 4:24), legs (Genesis 3:8), and feet (Isaiah 66:1). We are made in God’s image as beings with a spirit/mind.
