Three Different Spirits?

We have been asked:

Where in the bible does it say that “the Father being a spirit, the Spirit of Christ and the Holy Spirit, are three different spirits”?

The question appears to be an attempt to confuse the usage of the word “spirit “ in the Bible. It should be obvious, at least if one does a word of study of the Hebrew and Greek words for spirit (often transliterated as ruwach and pnuema), that the word spirit does not always have the same exact meaning; it certainly does not have the same exact same meaning as when referring to God’s Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30) and God’s being as an invisible spirit. (John 4:24; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17) God is not His Holy Spirit, which is likened to his finger as can be seen by cross-referencing Matthew 12:28 with Luke 11:20. I would say that my finger is a part of me, that is, it is a part of my body, but it certainly is not *me*, and even more so it is certainly not all that I am (as trinitarians claim that each person of their alleged triune God is wholly God).

As the instrument of the revealing of truth, the holy spirit is likened to God’s “mouth”. (Deuteronomy 8:3; 1 Kings 8:24; 2 Chronicles 6:4; 36:12,21; Ezra 1:1; Isaiah 1:20; 40:5; 45:23; 48:3; 58:14; 62:2; Jeremiah 9:12,20; Ezekiel 33:7; Micah 4:4; Matthew 4:4; Mark 12:36; Acts 1:17; 28:25; Hebrews 3:7; 9:8; 10:15,16; 2 Peter 1:21)

    THIS IS JUST A SIMPLE QUESTION:
    ARE THEY THREE DIFFERENT SPIRITS OR ONE AND THE SAME?
    IF YOU ANSWER THREE DIFFERENT SPIRITS THEN SHOW ME IN THE BIBLE WHERE IT SAYS THAT THE FATHER BEING A SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST AND HOLY SPIRIT ARE THREE DIFFERENT SPIRITS.
