1. Why is the spirit of Jehovah a separate person from Jehovah himself? Does that mean your own spirit is a separate person from you the human? Does that mean that the spirit of Jesus is a different person from Jesus the Spirit? Doesn’t having the Holy Spirit as the spirit of Jesus and Jehovah contradict your argument for the trinity that it is three persons in one being? The spirit of God is the spirit of Jesus and Jehovah. Two spirits in one spirit is contradictory using your trinitarian arguments.
Isn’t the Spirit sent by the Father in the name of the Son? Nobody would say that they are sending their spirit would they? Can your spirit be somewhere that you are not?

The act of sending is person on person is it not? It is obviously a personal act between the subject and the object in these contexts is it not? The sender is not sending himself and the sent one, who is not the sender, is testifying on the behalf of Jesus.
Acts 13 v 2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
The Spirit has his own volition and acts as God. If this is simply the Father speaking why does the text not simply say so?
Ananias and Sapphira
Acts 5 v 1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
Ephesians 4 v 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Personal attributes are ascribed to the Spirit which make him a separate person.
