Re: A question about the Christian ( not Zoroastrian! ) Holy Spirit.
I can't find any other verses that have the same distinction you are asking for. I'm sure the following isn't what you want but it's the best I can find. But your whole preoccupation seems nonsensical to me and unnecessary.
Jhn 1:33
And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
Jhn 7:39
(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Act 2:4
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
1Co 12:3
Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Re: Re-Trinity
Yes I know how it came about. Athanasius was answering the heretics of his day. I know he answered those who refused to recognize that Jesus Christ is God, and he may also have dealt with those who had what is called a "modalist" view that pictures God switching from Father to Son and Holy Spirit as different modes of His Being rather than existing as three separate Persons all equally God and Lord. Athanasius was a man of integrity serving God and the Church honestly and not from any "political" motives.
