Hebrews 1: 1-3 “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”
John 4: 24 “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
2-The same inmate asked me this: “I believe in God and not Jesus”, Can such a person continue to pray to God and receive The Holy Spirit?
RESPONSE: It is very important to note that we receive salvation only through The LORD Jesus Christ; He is the only gateway (door) to Heaven. For one to receive The Holy Spirit, they must acknowledge and receive The Son (The LORD Jesus Christ) as their LORD, Master and Saviour. Remember, The LORD Jesus Christ is the one that intercedes to the Father (The LORD God Almighty) to release The Holy Spirit upon us.

1st John 4:2-3 “ By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”
John 14: 25-26 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
