Does the Holy Spirit ever speak with a feminine voice?

by Theodore Wright.

When I was about 5 years believing in Jesus in 1988, I was in the process of working toward my ministerial license with the Church of God (Cleveland TN). While I while reclining in my room at home alone, I heard the Holy Spirit speak. Which generally is not new for me but this time it was more than just the usual. It was only one word spoken to me, clear and distinctly, but was in a feminine voice. This sparked my attention. The voice said, very sweetly, “Listen!”

I did not believe in any Mother Mary nonsense, in her intercession, or anything like that from her. Nor do I believe such apostate doctrines now. I am a firm Protestant believer in Jesus. Therefore, I deeply wondered what this was. Then I read in my Holy Bible, the book of Proverbs which answered this for me.

Proverbs chapter 8:1-6 from the New King James version Bible reads like this…

1 Does not wisdom cry out, And understanding lift up her voice?

2 She takes her stand on the top of the high hill, Beside the way, where the paths meet.

3 She cries out by the gates, at the entry of the city, At the entrance of the doors:

4 “To you, O men, I call, And my voice is to the sons of men.

5 O you simple ones, understand prudence, And you fools, be of an understanding heart.

6 Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, And from the opening of my lips will come right things;


It was the Holy Spirit who spoke to me as WISDOM. The Holy Spirit is described in the Bible using masculine pronouns. However, Wisdom is described using feminine pronouns. I understood this to be the legitimate voice of God. I spoke about this in church on a Sunday after this.
