The Definition Of The Soul And The Spirit
The Definition Of The Soul And The Spirit. 8th June 2013. Written by Manashantii
The book of ( first) 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 verse 23 says the following :-
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Human beings are made of three separate entities which is body, soul and spirit. Our body is like a container or vessel that holds our soul and our spirit in our body. The word soul in Hebrew language is Nephesh. The soul in Greek language is Psyche. Soul are all of your psychological faculties such as the mind, thoughts, will, emotions, attitude, memory, imagination, intellect, behaviour, character, identity, personality and conscious are all governed by the soul. Your soul is your imperfect sinful nature this is due to the original sin caused by Adam and Eve.
Ruach is Hebrew for spirit. Pneuma is Greek for spirit. The spirit is sometimes called inner man. The spirit is the part of you which can be used in communication and fellowship with God, your conscience and your intuition is the knowing part of your spirit.
Remember Jesus is a life-giving Spirit. When you become a born again Christian your spirit becomes like the Holy Spirit of Jesus in heaven and you commune with God from your spirit to His Spirit. As a born again Christian you have made an agreement with God that Jesus’ blood has made you Holy and acceptable with God. Hallelujah!
Let God heal your soul, worship, believe and trust in God. Surrender to God read the Holy Bible.
The body, soul and spirit are meant to exist eternally, however because of the sinful nature of mankind our flesh will eventually die. The soul will either go to hell eternally or go back to God and the spirit will return to God forever. If we are Christians and God pardons our sins our soul and spirit will be with God in heaven and we will be given new and better bodies. Amen.
I am writing this as short as possible so that you can reflect and remember more.
