The difference is that the Holy Spirit was there only when you needed help in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, the Holy Spirit was in all believers at any time.

If you go to the website linked below, it tells you all the places in the Old Testament where "Spirit" or "Holy Spirit" is mentioned.

There is no difference. It is the same thing. The Holy Spirit and the Holy Ghost are the same thing, you can call it one or the other. The Holy Ghost is the ONLY ghost there are no such things as ghosts besides the Holy Ghost

It depends what you mean by "normal". If it is not the Holy Spirit then there is none.

The Holy Spirit is mentioned throughout the New Testament.

If you search for "Holy Spirit" in the King James Version, you'll find 4 results from the New Testament. But he is also mentioned as "The Spirit" or "The Spirit of God" or "The Holy Spirit", etc. The KJV uses the term 'Holy Ghost' to refer to the Holy spirit and this former is frequent, 89 times in all.

In the Old Testament the Holy spirit was given rarely upon certain individuals at certain times, although He undoubtedly remained upon a number of persons for an extended duration. In the New Testament, the Christian believer is permanently indwelt by the Spirit of God, as long as they are a believer in truth and not a counterfeit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is in fact one distinguishing mark of a person being a believer. 'He who does not have the Spirit is none of His,' i.e. is not a believer. Thus, the work of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament era is of a more permanent and lasting nature than that of the Old.

In Psalms 51v11 "Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me".Answer:The first time the Holy Spirit is mentioned in the NewTestament is Matthew 1:18.

The complete Holy Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Nothing more than christianic doctrine ideologies and christianic theories. You'll always need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

There is no difference, they are indeed the same.

the holy spirit used moses to write the old testament ,the holy spirit in the propheteswrote the bible

The bible says that the Father (God), the Son (Jesus), and the Holy spirit are all one. This is called the Holy Trinity. They are separate yet one. God is in the Son and in the Holy Spirit therefore they are one.

The phrase "holy spirit" appears three times in the KJV Old Testament. (Psalms 51:11; Isaiah 63:10, 63:11)

A dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.

In the King James version the phrase - holy spirit - appears three times in the Old Testament... * Psa 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. * Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them. * Isa 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he that put his holy Spirit within him? The King James version uses the phrase "Holy Ghost" in the New Testament... always capitalised, but that phrase never appears in the Old Testament. The more common Old Testament reference to the Holy Spirit is "Spirit of God," which appears fourteen times.

No. The difference arises because of the different translations of the bible. The King James version of the bible uses the word 'Ghost' while most other versions use the word 'Spirit'.

Jews and a minority of Christians believe that the Holy Spirit Is God's Power, while a majority of Christians believe that the Holy Spirit IS God (Third Person Of the Trinity).

The Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible does not come from memories. The books were written by men under the inspiration of Holy Spirit.
