The Holy Spirit A B Simpson Chapter 12 – The Holy Spirit in the Body of Christ THE HOLY GHOST CONSTITUTES THE BODY OF CHRIST. “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body.” The church is not an organization. It is an organic life; it is a living body constituted by the Holy Ghost, and united to Jesus Christ, its life and living Head. Eve was created in the person of Adam, at first, and then, afterwards was taken from him by the special act of God, and united to him as his bride. So the Church is taken out of Christ by the Holy Ghost, and then given back to Him in divine union, as His glorious Bride.
