GOD's Spirit came upon many people other than Jesus:

Trinitanian Christians claim that since Jesus carried GOD's spirit, then he must be GOD himself !.  They often present these verses from the Bible:

Isaiah 11:1-3 "1. A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
2. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him (Jesus)-- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of
counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD
(Jesus fearing his GOD)--
3. and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or
decide by what he hears with his ears;"

Matthew 12:18 "Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him (Jesus), and he will proclaim justice to the nations."


Let us look at the many others who carried GOD's spirit in them in the Bible:

Luke 2:25 "Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him."



Now, why do we have to consider Jesus as the Creater of this Universe or someone who is equal to GOD just because GOD had put his spirit in Jesus, and not consider the many others who carried GOD's spirit above as equal to GOD?

What does the Noble Quran say about Jesus and the Holy Spirit?

Noble Verse 4:171 "O People of the Book (Jews and Christians)! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah
aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah,
and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe
in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is
one Allah. Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all
things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."

Noble Verse 5:110 "Then will Allah say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and to
thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to
the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the
Law and the Gospel and behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird,
by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave, and thou
healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the
dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee
when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them said: 'This
is nothing but evident magic.' "

Noble Verse 15:29 "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit,
fall ye down in obeisance unto him."

Noble Verse 16:102 "Say, the Holy Spirit has brought the revelation from thy Lord in Truth, in order to
strengthen those who believe, and as a Guide and Glad Tidings to Muslims."

Noble Verse 17:85 "They ask thee concerning the Spirit (of inspiration). Say: 'The Spirit (cometh) by
command of my Lord: of knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to you, (O
men!)' "

Noble Verse 38:72 "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit,
fall ye down in obeisance unto him."

Noble Verse 58:22 "Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those
who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons,
or their brothers, or their kindred. For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and
strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to Gardens
beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein (for ever). Allah will be well pleased with
them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that
will achieve Felicity."
